Like many of you I grew up watching Saturday morning cartoons. As a matter of fact, I called Saturday “cartoon day” until I was about seven years old. Back in the golden era of Saturday morning animated entertainment we had incredible (yet bizzaro) shows like Transformers, Thundercats, and the U.S.A. Cartoon Express. While programming like Star Wars: The Clone Wars still provides kids with a bit of “magic”, I fear that the days of utterly ridiculous 80s-style cartoons are long gone… Enjoy this April fools joke from the fine folks at IGN. For the record… I would watch the poop out of this show.
Epic games released a new “trailer” for their upcoming kill-happy FPS Bulletstorm. The new “trailer” (finger quotes) does an excellent job at poking fun of Bungie’s very famous Halo: Diorama trailer from a few years back.
There have always been two very distinct camps; those that love Halo, and those that love Gears of War. Just when you thought there may be peace, Epic goes and throws down the proverbial nerd gauntlet. This video is pretty much the equivalent of a hip hop “diss”.
