We can't all look like Patrick Stewart, but some of us sorta kinda can(-ish)! And when you do, it's only natural you'd have favorite X-Play moments. Just ask this guy!
Do your co-workers need an energizer? You could try group jumping jacks or offsite team building, but with Borderlands 2 loot midgets for the office, you'll never need anything else! Just drop a few of these baddies into the mix, and you'll have everyone perked up in no time!
With X-Play signing off the air for good, however will you get your game reviews? Why, you'll make them yourself! With these tips from our gaming experts, you'll be creating your own stellar reviews for the future games we won't be around for.
Some of the most important people on X-Play were the ones you rarely saw, but for the series finale, all bets were off. Producer Mike Benson is joined on stage by his dog to deliver some of his favorite moments from all the years he spent working on the show.
On X-Play's last show, Morgan Webb and Blair Herter thought it would be a nice thing letting Kristin Adams say a few words of goodbye. Then they gave her the microphone...
We've long dreamed of a day when we could download freshly released movies to our TVs, and now, that day has arrived... but with a steep price! PRIMA Cinema gave us some hands-on time with their product, and it's an amazing service for anyone who can't make it to their local cineplex on opening weekend to see the latest, greatest releases. The cost? A cool $35,000 for the primary unit and remote fingerprint reader, plus an additional $500 per viewing, or a TBD annual fee for an unlimited subscription. Now, that seems astronomical, we know. However, it's chump change next to the cost of installing professional projection equipment (which can run well over $100K). In addition to those equipment costs, you also have to be on a super secret screener list called the "Bel-Air Circuit" that gives access to first-run theatrical releases. Oh, and that circuit is per studio, and even if you make one studio's list, it doesn't guarantee you'll be placed on any other studio's list. Hollywood heavy hitters like Ari Emanuel, George Clooney, and Les Moonves are all on the list, so if you're expecting an invitation, don't hold your breath.
Blair Herter hired on a dare? Morgan Webb once a member of Das EFX? These are just two of the incredible X-Play show secrets being revealed now that it's off the air. See all the amazing revelations below!
With X-Play wrapping up its series finale and shuttering doors, only now can some of the show's darkest secrets be revealed.
For instance, did you know that whenever Morgan Webb left the office, staffers fell into a raging panic that quickly devolved into Lord of the Flies-like violence? Yeah, it's true. And this video is proof:

Welcome to G4's Knuckle Up, where we bring you a byte-sized view of our five favorite mobile games every week. The phone and tablet space is filled with incredible games that will keep you busy for minutes, hours, or even days -- we'll let you know what we're playing and why we're playing it. Here are our five favorite games this week:
GAME OF THE WEEK
JOE DANGER TOUCH
When we heard Joe Danger was getting an iOS port, it was a pretty exciting moment for us. After all, we’d played it on our consoles, and it seemed like a great port. We were right, as Joe Danger Touch has been crafted specifically for a touchscreen experience, and it’s done perfectly. You follow the ubiquitous Joe Danger as he performs daring feats of bravado on his bike, which is a lot tougher than it might seem at first.
There are 50 levels in Joe Danger, but you’ll be playing through most of them more than once to pick up the coveted “Pro” medal for each. To grab it, you’ll need to run the level perfectly, and that often takes memorizing a certain section or pulling off a tricky maneuver. The controls are perfectly balanced, and it’s a lot of fun popping wheelies, ducking, flying over shark tanks, and racing opponents.
A healthy and robust challenge system is also in place, once again adding replay value to just about every part of Joe Danger Touch. Unlocking new costumes, challenging friends to beat your high scores, and pushing through the last 10-15 levels or so are incredibly satisfying moments in the game, making Joe Danger Touch a must-buy if you’re on iOS.
Dolph Lundgren, Universal Soldier: Day Of Reckoning Interview - You Can't Run From This War Soldier! Not Under My Command

By the way, do yourself a favor and watch Day of Reckoning, it's great. Tell 'em Dolph sent ya.
Universal Soldier: Day of Reckoning Director Interview, John Hyams On Zigging When Audiences Expect You To Zag (Exclusive Clip Below)
Universal Soldier: Day of Reckoning, director John Hyams’ follow up to his successful 2009 film, Universal Soldier: Regeneration, is available tomorrow, Tuesday January 22nd, on DVD, Blu-ray, and VOD. If you haven’t had an opportunity to check it out yet, you’ve done yourself a massive disservice because the movie is fantastic. Starring Jean-Claude Van Damme, Dolph Lundgren, Andrei Arlovski, and burgeoning action star Scott Adkins, Day of Reckoning is a movie that isn’t easy to define; it’s an ultraviolent mood piece that skillfully blends multiple genre influences into something familiar yet wholly its own. The movie consistently zags when you expect it to zig and it was easily one of my Top Ten movies of 2012.
Last week we had an opportunity to sit down with star Dolph Lundgren (check out the video here) and director John Hyams to discuss the ever evolving Universal Soldier series.
When Hyams set out to make Day of Reckoning, he knew he didn’t want to simply rehash Regeneration. “The first thing you say is “well, I just don’t want to repeat what I did before,” not even just for myself, but for the audience. What’s the point?” said Hyams. “There’s no reason to just do the same movie again, and there’s really no way to succeed that way. It’s kind of like junk food, you can give them exactly what they want, but in the end it’s gonna go right through you and you’re really not going to appreciate it in the long run. So, the first thought was, “Look, we have to do something different here. Not just for the sake of being different, but also for the sake of honoring the direction that this story is going.” Regeneration ended with essentially posing a couple of questions. And one of the questions was, “What has become of the character of Luc Deveraux (Van Damme’s character)?” He’s taken off, he’s decided to not go back to the government, probably because he knows their intentions aren’t good, they’ll destroy him, enslave him, put him on ice, who knows what they’re gonna do? So, he’s taken off.”
“First question is, “Where is he? We need to find him.” Well, the next movie should be about going and finding him. That, by that very notion, means that he really shouldn’t be the protagonist, you know? This movie should be about someone’s journey to find this guy. So, what is gonna inform that journey? Well, we also know that that movie posed the idea that now this is all moving in the direction of genetic engineering, it’s no longer about reanimating the dead soldiers; now it’s about cloning. Once you go down that direction you can’t really go back to reanimating dead soldiers, there’s no point. So, now we’re in this place where the government can kind of create their own weapons from scratch.”
Check out an exclusive clip from the movie after the jump.

Army of Two: The Devil's Cartel has a brand new trailer "Overkill" and as the title implies, every rifle discharge, bullet impact, and grenade explosion is in excess of what is necessary or appropriate (and I love it). There’s a brief exchange between Army of Two: The Devil's Cartel's new leads Alpha and Bravo that vaguely resembles Salem and Rio’s bro-speak so maybe there’s a chance I’ll warm up to these new characters (but I’m not holding my breath).
Check it out:
What’d you think? The other 2 Army of Two games had a unique charm to them so I have to say I’m looking forward to The Devil's Cartel. Are you?
Chris Taylor and his development studio, Gas Powered Games, announced the development of their latest PC game "Wildman" today. Gas Powered Games, the creators of such titles as Dungeon Siege and Supreme Commander, describe Wildman as a combination RPG and RTS game.
In the game, you lead a single "Wildman" unit into battle; supporting and upgrading your unit's abilities as the real time action unfolds. After battle, you can explore the environment to find treasure and weapons while earning new skills.
“Wildman takes the elements that we’ve crafted over the years with our action role-playing games and combines them with the things we love about real-time strategy,” said Taylor. “It’s original, it’s unique and we think our fans will embrace this new approach. And if you like what you are seeing and hearing about the game, we hope you’ll back us on Kickstarter.”
Wildman will be funded with a Kickstarter campaign with the goal of raising $1.1 million.
“Kickstarter and crowdfunding allows us to fundamentally change the way we develop games. I’m thrilled that we are finally entering a new era of gaming, an era that allows collaboration and unprecedented levels of transparency with our customers,” said Taylor. “It allows us to work together as a team, create games more efficiently and direct our energy at the things that the players care about most.”
For more information about Wildman, including production art and video interviews with the creative team, check out the Wildman Kickstarter page.
Have you contributed to anything on Kickstarter? I haven't but I'm pretty stingy with my bread. They also dock my pay every time I use a horrendous pun in my article titles so my paycheck is definitely going to be light this week.
