Horatio Sanz and Candace Bailey bring you today's top three viral videos, like how one trick with a flaming guitar goes (almost) totally wrong, an amazing TRON-inspired dance and the Iron Man 3 trailer!
The just-released gameplay launch trailer for Halo 4 may lack the pizazz of the recent "Scanned" trailer from Hollywood heavies David Fincher and Tim Miller, but it makes up for this lack with plenty of in-game footage. 343 has been very quiet when it comes to plot details for the next Halo, and this trailer offers some insight into what's to come.
What is this ancient evil that's been reawakened? Why does it see humanity as the greatest threat to the galaxy? You can bet we'll have answers to both of these questions along with plenty of others when Halo 4 hits stores on November 6, 2012.
Wasteland Weekend isn't your run of the mill three-day post-apocalyptic party. It's about something more serious, it's about survival. Attack of the Show's Candace Bailey went to Wasteland Weekend with the goal of joining a clan. In order to do so, she had to compete in the following activities:
- Thunderdome, two larpers enter, one larper leaves.
- Juggermatch, think football with weapons.
- Masterblaster, drink whatever is in the bright colored shot glass.
Watch and see if Candace was warrior enough to take on Wasteland Weekend!
Insomniac announced Fuse back in 2010, when it was called Overstrike. Now that the game is closer to actually coming out, we've got a Fuse preview. Morgan Webb and Creative Director Brian Allgeier take a look at this 4-player co-op game that features various weaponry powered by an alien substance called "Fuse."
One name always stands out when it comes to actors taking on the monsters of our nightmares – Robert Englund. In the Nightmare on Elm Street series, Englund kept us awake as night with a striped shirt and his special glove. Any horror fan will instantly recognize this legend of the silver scream.
We take a look back at an interview with the monster of ceremonies as he talks about his biography, Hollywood Monster. Between these pages, you’ll find stories about Englund’s climb through the horror world and how he became the monster we all fear. Of course, we find out the actor’s favorite Freddy moments from the best kill to his favorite line in this interview.
Horror fans looking to get to know more about Freddy can find his book on Amazon. Tune into G4TV for more horror interviews and Halloween tips until the big day.
The Nikon 1 J2 digital camera was recently reviewed by Matt Mira and Horatio Sanz on Attack of the Show! In the video below, you can find out what the two thought of the $550 camera, which sports a 3-inch LCD screen and features 1080p video recording. It has new functionality, like custom filters, but ultimately the two find that this version of the camera isn't much of an upgrade over the original Nikon 1.
The interactive Assassin's Creed 3 trailer below allows you to choose Connor's adventure as he makes his way through the bloody battle of Bunker Hill towards his target Major John Pitcairn.
It shows off the diversity that's featured in Assassin's Creed 3, and by simply watching and following along, you can choose to make Connor go in for kills with stealth or muscle, and even choose the path, weapons, and attacks he'll use against the enemy.
The PlayStation 3 version of Assassin's Creed 3 will be coming with some exclusive bonus content featuring the traitorous Benedict Arnold. The PS3-exclusive content unravels over a four-mission story arc during which the new Assassin, Connor, will work undercover to try and stop Benedict Arnold's betrayal of the Revolutionary forces.
Check out the trailer below for more details on the Benedict Arnold missions in Assassin's Creed 3, which uses dialogue from written recordings of the actual events.
Tera has some Halloween delights for its legions of players. Masks, pies, pumpkins, new enemies and other scare-iffic Halloween surprises are in store. There's nothing better than seasonal content from MMOs, I think you will agree!
Check out the trailer below for a look at all the Halloween Tera action.
Sony wants to remind you of the epic franchise match-up that will highlight the upcoming 2D fighter PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale. A newly released live-action trailer (via All Games Beta) that appears to have been inspired by 2011's award-winning "Michael" ad pits various faces that you know against one another.
The 20-strong roster is filled out by pretty much any Sony character you can think of, from Parappa to Cole MacGrath, along with a handful of popular third-party faces from the likes of BioShock, Tekken, and more. Look for PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale in stores for PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita on November 20, 2012.
Microsoft's Major Nelson confirms that the latest Xbox 360 dashboard update rolls out to users today, October 23, 2012, just shy of the October 26 launch of Windows 8 and Xbox SmartGlass. Revealed at E3 2012, SmartGlass is Microsoft's move to offer second-screen functionality on your Xbox 360 console. In addition to basic menu navigation and the ability to control the new dashboard's Internet Explorer web browser, SmartGlass also aims to add value to the gaming and apps experience.
It sounds like the new feature will be pretty light at first, though support for a handful of items should be added "in the coming months." Forza Horizon, Dance Central 3, Home Run Stars, and the upcoming Signal Studios action game Ascend are all pegged for SmartGlass support, as is Halo community app Halo Waypoint. Karaoke, Kinect Sesame Street TV, and Prima Games are also listed under the "games" heading. Big-ticket sports apps ESPN, NBA Game Time, and UFC are all pegged for SmartGlass features, along with entertainment and news apps like Xbox Music, Xbox Video, HBO Go, MSN, NBC News, and, for a few weeks at least, Elections 2012.
All of this functionality will unlock on the smartphone/tablet and Windows 8 PC side via a free app download. Stay tuned for more details soon.
The debut trailer for Iron Man 3 is officially here, highlighting the coming sequel's conflict between Robert Downey Jr.'s titular superhero and Mandarin, brought to life by none other than Sir Ben Kingsley. You also get a few peeks at Downey Jr.'s Tony Stark struggling with his post-Avengers New York City catastrophe demons (in a bottle, perhaps?).
There are a few specific things you should be watching for. A quick shot of Mandarin's ten ring-bearing fingers, the Ten Rings of Power that the super-villain found in a starship (in the comics). You'll also get a peek at the Iron Patriot (US flag-themed armor), worn in the comics by the villainous Norman Osborn during the Marvel Universe's catastrophic Civil War. Osborn won't be a player in Iron Man 3, so I'm guessing the Iron Patriot duties will fall to Aldrich Killian (Guy Pearce, also seen in the trailer), in a nod to the comics' Extremis arc.

Sleeping Dogs will gets its own spooky DLC pack, Nightmare in North Point, just in time for Halloween.
We spoke with Dan Sochan, a producer at United Front Games, about the DLC. "Nightmare in North Point" will explore a different part of Hong Kong cinema. Sleeping Dogs was true to the crime drama genre, but this DLC pack will show gamers the horror of Hong Kong. (Think Big Trouble, Little China.)
