It seems surreal that at the strike of midnight, the long-awaited release of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey will finally be here. Because of that, it's a perfect time to go back, one decade removed, and reexamine the set of films that left fans desperately screaming for more, The Lord of the Rings trilogy.

The folks at Screen Junkies have done just that, giving us an analysis of the Rings films which remind us that heartfelt sacrifices lose some significance when they get reversed with a white wardrobe makeover and that the people of Middle Earth win wars with an unseen powerful weapon that annihilates stuff inconvenient to the plot.

Those who are uninitiated with director, Peter Jackson's Tolkien films should not expect a 90 minute tour de force of disposable action. Instead, these films require a love for fake languages and mythology, artful shots of people walking in grandiose landscapes all over Kiwi country, and, most importantly, a strong bladder. The Hobbit should be no different, so sip those giant sodas at a reasonable pace.

Let us all not forget that in this holiday season, every time a bell rings, Sean Bean dies in something again.

Scott Aukerman, host of Comedy Bang Bang (both the IFC series and the podcast), recently visited Attack of the Show to share tips on starting your own comedy podcast, as well as his experiment with listening to Phish. But does he take his pants off like Eric Andre and T.J. Miller? You'll have to watch.

Take a trip through the bizarre, surreal blood-soaked experience known as 8-Bit Trip, a vision quest through the deranged mind of our own Nikole Z. Featuring Sleeping Dogs, Darksiders 2, candy and extreme violence, 8-Bit is where Pee-Wee’s Playhouse meets Evil Dead...but with unicorns!
And as if that’s not enough, special friends, hip hop duo Insane Clown Posse, stop by to seal the deal with their disturbing cameo. Give it a watch and let us know what you think:

If  upcoming Tim Burton film Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter was an 8-bit sidescroller, this is what it'd probably look like.

20th Century Fox commissioned Freddie Wong and Brandon Laatch to create a special integration to promote "Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter" hitting theaters Friday, and while it's not exactly the most interesting-looking game ever, the video is still pretty imaginative.  Click "play" and check it out!


Sure, you've played the hell out of Mass Effect 3, and you probably think you've seen it from every angle, but what would you think if they decided to turn this very serious game into a 70's era sitcom? That's where we come in. Check out the wacky exploits of Commander Shepard and friends.

G4tv.Comedy: The Black Metal Stylings of Dethstarr!

Roaming the galaxies in Star Wars: The Old Republic can sure work up a good thirst. Luckily, there are cantinas around to slake that dry-as-a-bone feeling.

And here, for your dark, evil pleasure, is the best of those bands, the amazing black metal juggernaut called Dethstarr, with their hit, 'Forced Entry.'

Bang your head. Hard.

G4tv.Comedy: Be Secure!

Leave a Comment

Posted February 27, 2012 - By Mike D'Alonzo

Isn't it time that everyone knows what Call of Duty fans already know...that all you need to make yourself feel like a million bucks is to Be Secure? Watch as these very, very sad sequences from videogame lore become changed forever with just a little bit of security...which goes a long, long way.

Remember, kids, security is a state of mind, just like sadness, or carrots. All you need to do is think secure thoughts, and the world's flag belongs to you.

President's Day or not, it's still Monday, which means we've got another edition of G4tv.Comedy for you to laugh at while you're not working or going to school, or whatever it is you'd normally be doing today. This time, we return to the fertile laughing ground of Star Wars: The Old Republic to find two people arguing over, among other things, the merits of Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan, the 1977 movie Orca, and The View.

It's Monday morning, and we all need a lift, which is why another edition of G4tv.Comedy is here to give you a giggle. This time, we follow the exploits of a writer by the name of Alan Wake who's been hired to write a script for a videogame called American Nightmare, but who needs a little pharmaceutical help to get him in the mood.

Ladies and gentlemen, Alan Wake & Bake.

Monday Morning SWTOR Comedy Trek : Engage!

Space might be big, but it's only one entity, which means that both the Star Wars and Star Trek universes take place in the same space, no matter how big it is. So, it's not out of the question that they know about each other...or at least watch each other on television.

In celebration of Monday comedy, we bring you this tale from the world of Star Wars: The Old Republic, in which two characters discuss a rather famous episode of Star Trek: The Next Generation. Confused? You should be...they are.

We look forward to bringing you comedy each and every Monday, to help you adjust to the pain of a new week. Watch this space for more details.

Oh, the internet, sometimes you know just how to make a day awesome. For instance, the video below in which Master Chief from Halo fights Leonidas from 300 in an epic rap battle. I've already watched this 75 hundred jillion times, and it's still funny!

From the geniuses at Epic Rap Battles.

So... who do you think won? I hate to say this, but I gotta vote Leonidas.

During this end of the year holiday season, we feature a lot of special episodes of our franchises. Many include a rundown of what's happened in the gaming industry over the past year, but we at The MMO Report like to do things a little differently. As we look back at 2011 it's important to remember our mistakes along with our successes, and in this spirit we present to you our Best Bloopers of 2011. This is my favorite episode to edit, and it always leaves me laughing hysterically at my desk. Hope you enjoy it as much as I do. Happy New Year!
