Escape From City 17 Part 2

Remember that really awesome fan made Half Life 2 video Escape From City 17? Yeah, I forgot about it too. Go ahead and watch it over again, because the ending is pretty awesome:

A story about the connection that grows between two people during the battle for city 17. Made in the same gritty guerrilla style as the original, it was made on a $250 budget, previously owned/donated software, time, and an HVX200 camera.

John Carmack Quakecon 2011 Keynote

The video is a bit old, but I wanted to post it anyway. The keynote is nearly an hour and a half long, but it is all really interesting stuff. It gets pretty technical, so if you are not into programming game development the video probably is not for you.

Battlefield 3: Caspian Border Multiplayer Gameplay

I already got my pre-order in, but if you have not yet you probably will want to after watching this trailer:

I pre-ordered on Origin since it gets you into the beta next month, but there are a number of different pre-order bonuses available depending on where you buy it:

  • Gamestop is offering the Physical Warfare pack, which unlocks these weapons for use in multiplayer: DAO-12 Shotgun, Flash Suppressor, Type 88 LMG, and Flachette Ammo. In addition, Battlefield 3 Blog reports that PowerUp Rewards members will get a Prima strategy guide for free, as well.
  • Amazon is offering an exclusive “Dog Tag Pack,” for use in multiplayer.
  • Best Buy is offering the “SPECACT Kit,” a package that offers eight multiplayer weapons and uniform skins.
  • EA’s Origin store is offering the Physical Warfare pack, bonus items for Battlefield Play4Free, and access to the Battlefield 3 open beta.

All pre-orders get access to the Back to Karkand expansion for free. Also, keep in mind that the game will not be available on Steam, and that all copies will have to activate on Origin.

How a Hard Drive Works

The same folks that created that How LCD Displays Work video have created a new one about Hard Drives. Just like last time, its really interesting stuff. Check it out:

Epic Minecraft Server: Middle Earth

Holy crap, this is probably the most epic thing ever created in Minecraft. They have done all of Middle Earth from The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings Trilogy. They say it takes over 12 hours to walk across their entire server. The whole video is awesome, but if you are short on time make sure to check out Rivendell at 29:09 and the Mines of Moria at 33:23.
