Corridor Digital is back with its latest high-quality fan film, riffing off of Ubisoft's upcoming Far Cry 3 in Far Cry Happy Hour. The squeamish among you should note: things get a little bit gross. Not Saw/Hostel levels of gore, but definitely unsettling if you can't stand the sight of blood. Then again, if that's a problem you suffer from then you probably shouldn't be playing video games like Far Cry 3.
The moral of Far Cry Happy Hour is pretty clear, really: when you've been drugged by a gang of sadistic madmen who want to steal your poker winnings, it's important to remember that those guns in your hands aren't real. It's okay. Let them take the money. You don't need it. You certainly don't need it as much as you need your fingers. Yes, even the pinky.

G4tv issued a Hitman: Absolution challenge to IO Interacitve. Donell "Sushi Chef" Tucker (aka me) went up against IO Interactive's Sven "Looks like a Drug Dealer" Liebold, attempting to win the title of Silent Assassin. The rules were simple: each player must eliminate the King Of Chinatown on the hardest difficulty without being detected using one of many methods in the game. Seems simple, but only true professionals can accomplish this task. Will G4tv put IO Interactive to shame? Find out who won as you watch the ultimate Hitman: Absolution challenge down below.
Word of Uncharted: Fight for Fortuneleaked earlier this month thanks to a couple of prematurely posted content rating, but Sony now has the PlayStation Vita game officially confirmed for a December 2012 release. A PlayStation Blog post describes it as "an action-adventure turn-based card game featuring the heroes and villains from the Uncharted universe."
Personally, I had kind of hoped that the "casino/card game" descriptor from the earlier ratings leak meant we were getting some kind of Uncharted-themed casino game. Alas, that isn't the case. Fight for Fortune seems to instead take a page from Magic: The Gathering, with both campaign and asychronous multiplayer options. Check out the announcement post at the source for a more specific rundown of how the game works.
How many Clueless Gamer reviews will it be before we can start holding Conan O'Brien to the same standards that any other video game critic is held to? Conan's latest Clueless Gamer review looks at IO Interactive's Hitman: Absolution in a gross violation of the review embargo set by Square Enix. Pitchforks, people! Grab them!
I kid, I kid. Conan can review whatever he damn well pleases WHENEVER he damn well pleases, because he's Conan freaking O'Brien. His non-gamer perspective is also a refreshing change of pace when it comes to discussing so-called "hardcore" games. He often picks up on things that other critics might not. He's also a really funny mofo, and this Hitman: Absolution review is one of his best Clueless Gamer sketches yet.
You've gotta love a good fan film, especially when it's as well-made as this Grand Theft Auto-inspired one. Director/writer Gevorg Karensky and his co-writer Nate Egger really manage to capture the essence of GTA in their short film, Grand Theft Auto: RISE (via Kotaku).
I'm a fan of the use of HUD elements, but I'm an even bigger fan of the fact that the short's creators are okay with letting a more filmic presentation take over when the scene calls for it. The visual effects are impressive overall as well, with bonus points to the creators once again for subtlety.
