Just uploaded a link to our newest video from our Youtube Page onto the main site. Nailbat goes up against his friend Anthony in Dissidia 012. Just go to the Videos page to view it at the top, go on our Youtube Page (and while you’re there feel free to subscribe) or just view the video below.
Just to let everyone know, I added new videos page to the site, so that whenever I upload a new video onto Youtube, I can link it straight to here (Which I’ve forgotten to do in the past two weeks!) I’m trying to make it so that it’s easy to go from video to facebook page to Youtube without switching a beat. I’ve been heavily working on videos and I’m gonna try to have a new one available every week (Most likely on early Monday mornings)
You can see our latest video on the Videos page or you can watch it below…
Ah…The things you can find on the internet.
Ubisoft’s E3 Press Conference was quite possibly the best yet. They opened up with Just Dance 3 and had a live performance from Flo Rida. (Trying not to be outdone by Usher). But everyone quickly forgot about that by the time Far Cry 3 trailer opened up.
They had a woman having sex (?) with the main character as some kind of ritual to open it up and soon after jumped right into game play. Lots of shooting, chopping enemies up with machetes, and even tigers set loose on anything that moved.
There was a teaser for an Avengers game, Avengers: Battle for Earth, that showed Venom fighting Wolverine, Spider-Man taking on Magneto. At the end, The Avengers appeared and the game was announced to be for the Wii U and Kinect. No gameplay was available unfortunately.
We then saw a live demo of Rayman Legends for the Wii U (Yes, they actually played the game on a working Wii U system with Wii U controler). The game will allow for up to five players, four normal Wiimotes or
Xbox 360 Wii U Pro Controllers and one tablet controller.
We saw more of Assassin’s Creed III, including a new trailer as well as gameplay footage showing off the game. During the demo, they mentioned that the game’s story with the protagonist, Connor, is set to span over 30 years in just this one game. Connor switches sides between the Colonists and the British in the Revolution in search of Templars to assassinate making for one awesome story.
The most intriguing game that was at Ubisoft’s conference would have to be Watch Dogs. A game that takes place in a world where everything is connected through computer networks, from laptops and TVs to cars, household items, probably even the air. With the world like that, it makes it an extremely dangerous world if hackers are out on the loose, and you get to pay as one of those hackers.
The whole entire broadcast was even co-hosted by Youtube star Toby “Tobuscus” Turner! Known for his Literal trailers like the one below with Hitman: Absolution
Before that was the EA conference, which wasn’t anywhere near as good as Ubisoft save for a few places. Shooters like Crisys 3, a new Medal of Honor, Dead Space 3 and Battlefield 3 were all announced, but one of which was Need For Speed Most Wanted 2, which is not an open world racing game that you can join online and off just like Burnout (since it was made by Criterion, that’s no surprise) or Test Drive: Unlimited.
The other surprisingly was Sim City, where EA announced that they were going to have both a Facebook Sim City (all while taking shots at Zynga for their Farmville game) and a full blown new PC game!
Only one more conference is left today and that’s Sony’s. We’ll see what they have to offer a little later.
Some other companies have done things to generate buzz for E3. Square Enix released the first game play trailer for the Tomb Raider reboot as well as listing a launch date of March 3rd of next year. But Nintendo just finished having it’s Direct Broadcast revealing details about the Wii U’s hardware, as well their plans for implementing several new features for their new system.
One thing that made me laugh with joy and amusement was the Wii U Pro Controller. (Yes, that’s what it’s really called!) Not only does it look dangerously similar to an Xbox 360 Controller, but the fact that they call it that make it seem like Nintendo plans to try to lure back some of it’s fans that they lost in recent years due to their focus on casual gamers. Either that or it’s their answer to removing the Gamecube controller support and getting fans to buy more Nintendo peripherals. (Well played Nintendo…)
Some other things that was mentioned included an activity feed where you can update as you play a game, complete with Mii’s as your avatars, as well facial expressions you can use as well. Wii Wara Wara: which is like an expanded Mii Plaza which involves your Mii, other Miis on your system, friends of your Mii, and it can tell you what games everyone is playing or interested in. One other major thing that was mentioned was online competitive play, especially with games that aren’t even designed to be competitive. Think along the lines of SSX’s “multiplayer”, or like Super Mario 3D Land, where you can see how fast it took players you’ve StreetPass to beat certain levels and I think you’ll get the general idea.
E3 begins tomorrow, and I’m sure a plethora of updates and announcements will surely follow. I’ll do my best to update Project Nailbat as much as I can throughout the event.
Phoenix Comic Con has come and gone, but the spirit…and photos…from PCC will live on forever! (or however long that the Project Nailbat site will be up, WHICH WILL BE FOREVER!!)

Today, Adult Swim followed up on it’s campaign a month ago about the idea of bringing back the former #1 source of anime for anyone growing up in the 90s, Toonami. After the April Fool’s joke that replaced it’s programing for one night with the anime block, Adult Swim took to Twitter and asked it’s followers to make comments hashtagging #BringBackToonami to show interest in possibly having the anime block return. Well not long ago, Adult Swim tweeted the following:
Earlier today, a new app was available for download on the Xbox Live marketplace that lets you watch free anime online from Manga Entertainment. That’s right, FREE anime! However, this is only exclusive to Xbox Live Gold members, but those who have it can stream over 20 different shows and movies onto their console and TV for free. Including Macross Plus, Chrono Crusade, Ghost in the Shell and Gurren Lagann. The app states that new titles will be added weekly, which make this a great new alternative to watching anime.
The few downsides while using this app however is that there are random advertisements that seem to play at select intervals. Ironically while watching Gurren Lagaan, every single time it seemed to be right as something big was about to happen, kind of killing the immersion effect and bringing you out of the anime. Although free anime is hard to beat, now it’d be nice if other companies like Crunchyroll would follow suit…
UPDATE: I’m not 100% on this, but it looks like the Crackle app also has free anime available for streaming. It’s not entire series like Manga Entertainment has, just single episodes, however they have much newer titles like Oreimo, Star Driver, Madoka Magicka and even Fate/Zero!
“Fans’ faces when Elder Scrolls gets an MMORPG!”
Bethesda today had announced that The Elder Scrolls Online is currently being developed. The game will be available for PC and Mac, so console fans are going to have to miss out unless they jump over to PC gaming to play it.
“We have been working hard to create an online world in which players will be able to experience the epic Elder Scrolls universe with their friends, something fans have long said they wanted,” said Matt Firor, game director of The Elder Scrolls Online. “It will be extremely rewarding finally to unveil what we have been developing the last several years. The entire team is committed to creating the best MMO ever made – and one that is worthy of The Elder Scrolls franchise.”
There’s nothing about just how big the game will be. Will it encompass the whole world of the Elder Scrolls, or will it only have one part of the world like Skyrim or Morrowind? More details are sure to surface, but in the meantime for fans to celebrate, a video by Freddie Wong:
