Phoenix Wright flick gets a poster, new trailer

A promotional flyer for a movie isn’t the sort of thing we typically post around here, but in Phoenix Wright’s case, we’ll make an objection exception. The movie’s website also has two trailers available, including a cleaner version of the one we saw in October. Check out the full flyer at Andriasang, and find the trailers below.

Get Battlefield 3 server status updates

EA has launched a “current server status” page for Battlefield 3, which should help alleviate the need to check the @Battlefield Twitter account every time the publisher’s servers get temperamental.

If the server status says it’s up and you’re still having connection issues, then be sure to check those ports for optimal server connection. If all else fails, Modern Warfare 3 will be out tomorrow.


Alan Wake’s Night Springs goes ‘This Old House’ in first screen

You already know that Alan Wake’s Night Springs is headed towards its big debut at the 2011 Spike Video Game Awards, and you already know that it’ll arrive on Xbox Live Arcade. What you didn’t know is that Mr. Wake has got himself a whole new “Bob Vila meets Twin Peaks” look going on, as revealed by Game Informer’s exclusive first screenshot. Also, hey, he’s got a gas-powered pneumatic nail gun! The darkness isn’t gonna like nails in its stupid face, is it? Yeah!

It also appears that Wake’s got quite a bit of walking ahead of him, as a nearby highway sign puts 15 miles between him and the titular town of Night Springs. Hopefully the Desert Shore Motel can help sate him for that journey with a damn fine cup of coffee and some delicious cherry pie.


Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3’s Hardened Edition, unboxed

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 is finally out and available in stores, and if you’re considering picking up the Hardened Edition (available in most places for a $99.99, a mere $40 more than the standard edition), boy do we have a gallery for you to browse through. Below, you can see exactly what’s in that box, including a collectible case, a “Limited Edition Field Journal” featuring sketches and materials associated with the game and its story, and the special card and manual that comes with the free year of Call of Duty Elite (and “Founder” status).

Sure, it doesn’t have quite as many dragons as Skyrim’s Collectors Edition, but that Call of Duty Elite membership will come in handy (not to mention it’ll save you the $49.99 that you’d usually pay per year for the service’s premium features). Enjoy.


Steam user forums hacked, taken offline

Unsatisfied with merely enabling cheating in Steam games with unauthorized code, it would appear that a group called FknOwned took its hackery a step further, hacking the Steam user forum to insert an ad for its own site, which promises hacks, along with “general discussion sections, hacking tutorials and tools, porn, free giveaways and much more.” NeoGAF user imek reported that the same message came in as an email from Steam.

We say “it would appear” because we didn’t witness the hack for ourselves; rather than allow a hacking site to advertise itself prominently, Valve has taken the forums down “for maintenance.”


Modern Warfare 3 shipment truck hijacked with tear gas!

A truck shipping 6,000 videogames was violently hijacked in France. It is said that the games were all copies of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, which would make sense as I don’t think people would go to such lengths to steal Jimmie Johnson’s Anything With An Engine.

In a theft so ludicrously staged that it could have been its own Call of Duty level, two men crashed into the delivery truck before emerging with hoods over their heads and knives in their hands. They then used tear gas to put the drivers down before making off with the loot. The shipment is said to be worth 400,000 Euros.

Furthermore, a second theft is said to have taken place in France on Saturday, with three hooded men using a “weapon” to steal another truck after blocking the road. This bumps the total amount of value lost at 780,000 Euros.

So we’ve had Activision turning up at the doors of pirates, people spending over $1,000 for an early copy, and two truck heists. Modern Warfare is now officially the closest videogames get to The One Ring.

Devil May Cry enemy concept art is straight out of Monet’s nightmares

If you thought Dante’s makeover for the new Devil May Cry title was scary — for one, you’re extremely easily frightened. For two, you probably shouldn’t look at this digital concept art for three DmC enemies, the Warrior Drone, Tank Drone and Stinger. It’s easy to see how the game got its intensely stylized, oil-painting vibe from these initial renditions. They’re truly beautiful, in a terrifying kind of way.
