A video review of the next Legend of Zelda game due out on November 20th for the Nintendo Wii.A video review of the next Legend of Zelda game due out on November 20th for the Nintendo Wii.

GameTrailers sums up everything you would need to know about The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword in under ten minutes for your viewing pleasure. I've always had a real soft spot for Zelda games. This title may force me to blow the dust off of the old Nintendo Wii and hook it up via nine-hundred multi-colored component cables once again. Also, as the review demonstrates, the Wii really shows it's age with the graphics and lack of voice acting here. In the end though, it still looks like it will be an utterly fantastic Zelda game.

Full teaser trailer for The Dark Knight Rises surfaces online.Full teaser trailer for The Dark Knight Rises surfaces online.

Put me in the 'meh' column for this trailer, it just does nothing for me. I was however suprised to see that this installment with bring about the 'epic conclusion' of a series inspired by a comic book, then made into a television show, then made into a movie, then made into a cartoon, then remade into yet another series of movies. Doesn't really feel all that conclusive.

Disney makes good use of their monorail system for some new ads. Tron-orails!Disney makes good use of their monorail system for some new ads. Tron-orails!

This is some particularly clever advertising from the folks over at Disney for the upcoming reboot of Tron (coming out December 17t h).  Of course the effect may be lost if the monorail happens to be traveling in the opposite direction of the ad but that's a minor detail.

New trailer for Iron Man 2 now available online for your viewing pleasure.New trailer for Iron Man 2 now available online for your viewing pleasure.

Well then, this trailer certainly reveals more about the plot than the previous one did. For awhile I thought it was just going to be Tony Stark versus Randy the Ram - guess that's not the case anymore.

Looks kind of interesting, heres to hoping this movie is in no way similiar to Spider-Man 3 or *gasp* Batman Forever. Seriously, why does a superhero movie need more than one main villain? The answer is we don't. Thanks.

I've yet to play the original Batman: Arkham Asylum but I've heard very good things from those who have. Didn't the original game only come out like yesterday? Edit: it came out August 25th of this year. Still, that's a pretty short timeframe.

Daily Grind: Rested

Name: Vin (aka kevin)
How Vin feels today: Rested @ 9:40:00 AM
What Vin really wants today: To enjoy this nice laid-back feeling for as long as possible.

Music Stuck in Head: Nothing Too Tough / The Backyardigans
The in-car music of choice for the little ones. Multiple times. Every car ride.

Stuff to do today:

  • Note that that the latest Pixar offering, UP, was quite enjoyable
  • Note that the Disney 3D experience is not all that it's cracked up to be
  • ...the effects were kind of neat but overall it kind of degraded the overall definition of the movie
  • Stop being such a movie experience nerd
  • Speaking of Disney, read up some more technical explanation regarding the monorail crash
  • Wait patiently to see what LucasArts has in store today for this 'special announcement' they teased all weekend on Twitter
  • My guess is still Grim Fandango
