Tonight Microsoft is hosting a live event on XBL (8pm EST / 5pm PST) that promises to reveal some new details on Gears of War: Judgment, including the new Aftermath and Survival modes. Viewers will also be able to influence the content of the live broadcast by sending tweets with the #GearsJudgment tag.
We received a press release this evening from ID: Software that contained a link to a new commercial for their upcoming post-apocalyptic FPS, RAGE(we actually talk quite a bit about RAGE in Rated NA: Episode 24). This new commercial highlights NBA Rookie of the Year Blake Griffin who also plays forward for the L.A. Clippers and won the 2011 NBA Slam Dunk Content. Last I checked, RAGE has nothing to do with basketball. To clarify, I get the joke, but really, I think ID would be much better off showcasing their amazing engine and stunning graphics as opposed to comedy stylings of a talented basketball rookie. In all honesty, I thought we were beyond the age of using random celebrities to promote an IP. The commercial does have a few funny moments. Check it out below.
