This is the full opening sequence from Dark Souls the PC version. Using the Dsfix the game is running at 1920×1080. For some reason capture won’t work in fullscreen so this is window a tiny bit less than full resolution, but then rendered at at full 1080p. I guess you can consider this an up-convert. Enjoy the opening sequence and Prepare to Die!
Rockstar has unveiled a Max Payne 3 Special Edition, packed with goodies. To take advantage of this you must secure your Max Payne 3 Special Edition Pre-order between now and January 15th, this is a limited time offer. Check out all the details of the collectible version of the game below.
Max Payne 3 Special Edition Details
The centerpiece of this SE is the 10-inch tall Max Payne 3 statue made by Triforce, a
company that has done figures for the Gears of War and Mass Effect series amongst others. This features a grizzled, aging Max Payne in a tattered Grey suit, guns akimbo. Recent reveals and coverage of the game have let us know that we will take control and follow a storyline of Max at various points in his life, leading up to the bearded, burly and shaved head Max that has been prominently featured in early previews. This continues the trend of the statue as the centerpiece of many Special or Collector’s Editions these days. It looks like an excellent collectible piece.
Also included in the Max Payne 3 Special Edition is a Bullet Keychain, this will go nicely with my Uncharted 3 belt buckle, and Drake’s Ring and the yet as unsecured Assassins Creed hoodie. The other trend in SE and CE packages are wearable items, that also continues here. For Videogame soundtrack lovers, such as myself, the inclusion of the official soundtrack, aka, original score music is a welcome treat. I’m not sure who is scoring the new entry, but check out the first trailer below, which makes use of the pure Max Payne 2 theme music.
This has slowly turned into a must buy for me and will set the pocket book back quite a bit as it comes right around the time of the Mass Effect 3 N7 Edition at $79.99. Remember, again, the Max Payne 3 Special Edition Pre-Order is only valid “while supplies last” and up the January 15, 2012 cut-off date. I sensed a weight on my wallet, drenched in gloom and laden with foreboding…
Let’s jump right into it with the extended The Walking Dead Season Two trailer. Nearly 5 minutes of awesome.
Walking Dead Season Two Trailer:
The Walking Dead Special Edition
For those of you who haven’t picked up The Walking Dead Season One on DVD or Blu-ray yet, or if you did and were looking for more content then the meager initial release supplied, you’re in luck. Coinciding with the release of the trailers and information on the upcoming second seas on (premiere October 16th, 2011) special and limited edition DVDs and Blu-ray have been announced. The Walking Dead Season One Special Edition Bluray and DVD sets are each 3 discs and contain new features not found in the original release. The new features are:
- Adapting the Dead

- MSRP of $59.99
The Limited Edition Blu-ray of The Walking Dead (pictured at the right and exclusive to Best Buy) has an MSRP of $89.99 and includes all of the new extras listed above. What, you ask, do I receive for the extra $30. Packaging comes in the form of The Walking Dead Limited Edition Blu-ray Collector’s Tin which includes a (wearable I hear) zombie mask designed by VFX guru Greg Nicotero itself. The prices seem a little steep for what was a six episode season, but true fans of the series will be grabbing these up quickly. As an added bonus the first 100,000 units sold (either version) get a The Walking Dead trading card from Cryptozoic
