Shadows of the Damned GDC 2011 Trailer

That 20 minute Blizzard retrospective is more than worth your time if you have any interest in Blizzard. Lots of neat trivia about the company and its humble beginnings.

The Marvel vs Capcom 3 DLC characters cost $5 each which I believe is way too much. No matter how I try to justify it, $5 is too much for each. Hell, even $5 for both is too much, in my opinion. Ignoring the fact that they chose the silly and boring Resident Evil 5 version of Jill Valentine, these are characters who should have been in the game from the get go. It’s like charging extra for chess pieces. They can charge for stages, costumes, but not characters. That’s just too much.

Next, I’d like to direct your attention to the Shadows of the Damned trailer. This is the first trailer from that Grasshopper Manufacture + EA game which actually piqued my interest. Disturbing and unorthodox imagery mixed with a talking skull and wacky music. That’s an attention getter. I’m officially interested now.
