The Birds Of Anger: Angry Birds Gets Frightening-- G4 Films' Epictober Film Festival

We wanted to close G4 Films Epictober Film Festival with a truly amazing short film, Gregg Bishop's "The Birds of Anger."

Inspired by the best-selling mobile game, Rovio's Angry Birds, "The Birds of Anger" harkens back to Alfred Hitchcock's 1963 classic “The Birds,” and gives gamers a glimpse into a world where birds not only target pigs, but people as well.  “The Birds of Anger” is directed by Gregg Bishop, director of the “Dance of the Dead," and stars the great Jaimie Alexander, star of Thor.

If you missed yesterday's selection, "Kart Driver," check it out here. Monday's film of the day, "The Hunt," is available for viewing as well.

Thanks for attending G4 Films Epictober Film Festival. Please file-out of the theater in an orderly fashion, but keep checking back: G4 Films promises to continue to bring you awe-inspiring visions of the intersection of games and movies in the months and years to come.

Playstation Move vs Microsoft Kinect: The Future of Motion Control

The concept of motion control has been embedded in every gamer’s mind since the first person jerked an NES controller in a desperate bid to keep Mario out of a pit. From there, various companies tried (and failed) to create a viable motion controlled game/system. It wasn’t until Nintendo released the Wii in 2006 that the industry finally realized there was a juicy new opportunity still ripening on the vine.

Only years old, the Wii’s influence has reshaped the face of the industry. What some see as a bubble—a fad at best—still resonates through the daily workings of video games. New motion controlled games promising to push the limits of the medium are announced with regularity. But just how far can it stretch? Will people continue to patronize games that make them get off their couch and dance around or will these games remain party favors?

Enter Our Epic Gears of War 3 Giveaway!

Today's Epic Giveaway is for the Gears of War 3 fanatic in the crowd, and contains a signed Gold Retro Lancer, signed Gears of War board game, standard edition Gears of War 3 game and a Gears of War 3 poster. 

The signed Gold Retro Lancer was created from the actual 3D data used by Epic Games in the Gears of War 3 video game, is over 3 1/2' long, and has a trigger that activates a machine gun sound effect. Gears of War: The Board Game, designed by Corey Konieczka, is based on the wildly popular third-person shooter by Epic Games. One to four players take on the roles of COG soldiers cooperating to destroy the Locust horde, and must work together to complete missions against an ingeniously challenging and varied game system. In Gears of War: The Board Game, you’ll relive classic moments from Gears of War and Gears of War 2.

The winner will also receive a signed standard edition Gears of War 3 game and a signed Gears of War 3 poster.

Enter Our Epic Gentle Giant Giveaway!

If you thought the Epic Giveaways were over, you thought wrong! Today we bring you this special prize from Gentle Giant, the one of a kind Shae Vizla mini bust. The assassin of the seemingly invincible Darth Malgus, Shae Vizla is an impressive character in the unprecedented Star Wars: The Old Republic video game. Deadly as she is attractive! Cast in high quality poly-stone and then hand painted, this Vizla bust is the original, unnumbered paint master. It is literally one-of-a-kind and comes without the window box. This is the source piece that the limited edition run is based on. The value of something like this cannot be understated. It is, in a word, priceless.

When you play the Game of Thrones, you win or you die. There is no middle chair. Oh wait, yeah there is. Adam Sessler and Blair Herter have exchanged roles on Feedback. Adam has stepped down as host, allowing Blair Herter to take the throne. Stephen Johnson and Jessica Chobot evened out the rest of the royal court.

The show took an oddly metal turn from the get-go. Blair used his new power to allow Stephen Johnson to debut his "Feedback Video Games" music video. Viewers, I hope you're happy.

This week's news topics included Mass Effect 3's co-op, video games on iOS and updates from New York Comic-Con.

Game of the Week was Batman: Arkham City. Will Rocksteady's sophomore Batman game be a contender for game of the year?

Feedback has it all, dire wolves, dwarfs, and decapitation. (Disclaimer: No it doesn't.)

Feedback -- Batman: Arkham City Impressions »


The AUDIO MP3 of this episode of FEEDBACK is available here: Right-click and Save.

If you enjoyed this week's Game of Feedback, leave a comment and let us know.

Special shout out to Astro for those swanky new headphones.
