Today is Columbus Day in the United States and Thanksgiving in Canada, so the front page has been slow. I'm the only one writing today, along with our volunteer, Dany aka Reenee. But there's actually some neat vids released as well.

I posted them in our video section, and you can find them on the front page with a li'l background for each. The first is the opening cinematic for DJ Hero, that upcoming music game we've been hearing so much about -- with the turntable controller, Daft Punk, and some ongoing meet-Eminem-contest. It's pretty stylish, needless to say, and a bit on the obscure side; don't try to understand it, just sit back and enjoy.

More details at the link, including another link to another article about pre-order details. Retailers are really gunning for your money and offering some exclusive pre-order bonuses you might wanna think about. I'd say Best Buy has the juiciest, given it features Daft Punk. Moving on...

Next up, Dante's Inferno, a game everyone claimed was a God of War rip-off, because you know that's the only action game on the planet. Anyway, as we close in on 2010, the game looks like it might defy all expectations. There's lots of dark eye candy, and not just for Satan-worshipers. Visceral Games and EA released a new dev diary today focusing on "Anger," a well-known circle of Hell -- also referred to as "Rage." In it, they talk a little about Dante's weapons, mainly Death's giant scythe and a holy crucifix.

Finally, we posted a review this evening by Gabe, aka VeGiTAX2, for Half-Minute Hero on PSP. It's on the front page, but for you lazy bastards I'll get you the link. Happy watchin' / reading, and see you Tuesday.
