Right now, I’m busy downloading the Source Film-making kit, the very same software that Valve uses to make their own in-house videos. I’m quite excited for it, especially if I can get my reptilian brain to understand the subtle nuances and abilities of that program. Heck, I might even be able to get back into filming, but I’ll most likely have to use my alter-ego to do so, Senor Stephen Spielbergo.

In Other News: Max Payne opens up hell for cheaters, Street Fighter and Tekken send reinforcements to the PC, Mass Effect 3 gets broadsided, Halo 4 scratches the surface, Hollywood gets augmented and we celebrate obesity in gaming.
