Corridor Digital pays tribute to top-down video games in their latest action-packed short film. At first glance their top down shooter in real life looks like the Call of Duty: Strike Team mobile game that released last year for iOS devices. It really is a cool looking short that can be viewed in 1080p 60fps if you have a rig and a network connection to support it. Check it out and let us know what you think.
This is the first video on YouTube running at 60 frames per second (fps), instead of the usual 24 / 30fps. Currently, you can only watch 60fps YouTube clips through Chrome and have HTML5 enabled. If a video was shot at 60fps and your Internet connection can support it, the higher frame rate should kick in once you crank a video up to high definition. Pretty awesome!

Halo: The Master Chief Collection, out on Xbox One next month, includes Halo 2 Anniversary, a remastered version of the original Xbox first-person shooter. As part of Halo 2’s new lick of paint, Halo custodian 343 Industries drafted in video game cinematics specialist Blur Studios to create all new cutscenes for the game. The launch trailer, shows clips from these cutscenes, and they look pretty impressive. Don’t miss a look at the Gravemind in all its tentacle glory. All we need now is for Microsoft to give Blur the thumbs up to have a stab at a CGI Halo movie.

Skater is Frosch Media’s play for the title of “best simulation skateboarding game”, and though we haven’t played it enough yet to confirm if that’s the case, it’s certainly super authentic: the game replicates real world skate parks and spots – such as the Carlsbad Gap and Woodward Plaza – and features big name skate brands too. The launch trailer is equally in tune with skating culture, with pro skater Andrew Reynolds explaining the history of the 12 and 16 step at Hollywood High, a spot featured in Skater. Skater is available to download for $4.99 on the iTunes App Store. Would you play it?
The Matrix obviously features a computer simulated world that was created at some indeterminate point in the 21st century. Thankfully, the technology was clearly advanced enough to create a high definition one-to-one remake of the entire globe, but imagine if the machines had taken over in 1991 instead. If that was the case, their simulated world might have ended up looking a bit like Cinefix’s 8-Bit The Matrix video. In it we see Neo battle the machines in strict two-dimensional side-scrolling action. Check it out!
A new trailer has dropped for Call Of Duty: Advanced Warfare, and it’s littered with lots of shooting, Kevin Spacey shouting, and what appears to be a nod to Mortal Kombat’s Scorpion. However the main focus of this trailer is the first look at the four player co-op mode, Exo Survival. In this mode players must work together to fight off waves of enemies, which look to get progressively harder as the mode goes on. Visually, at least by the trailers we’ve seen, Advanced Warfare is looking rather nice. However, we’ll have to wait until at least November before it is known whether this is truly the big leap forward that some are making the game out to be.
The two-and-a-half minute video opens with a quartet of heroes grouped together in a convertible, riding through wide stretches of land populated with mystical creatures. The journey these four heroes embark on appears to be at the heart of the story. Though details on gameplay are still thin, the video suggests Final Fantasy XV features battles that play out in real-time–an uncommon decision for a core numbered game in the series. Also hinted at is a day-night cycle, as well as co-op heroics. Will you play it?
