Here we go with this weeks edition of Best of the Week.
Sorry for the lack of a post last week… we were out buying a new car for my wife.
Movie Trailer of the Week:
Top Gun 3D – In theatres February 8th, 2013
Synopsis:As students at the Navy’s elite fighter weapons school compete to be best in the class, one daring young flyer learns a few things from a civilian instructor that are not taught in the classroom.
I really want to take a road trip to my nearest IMAX to see this, even if it is a 27-year-old film, and 3D tends to make me vomit. Top Gun is one of the films that drove a love of flying deep down into my core, and made me want to be a military aviator… I say military, since Canada has no naval aviation. The film stars a young Tom Cruise, Val Kilmer and Anthony Edwards, along with Tom Skerritt, Micheal Ironside and Kelly McGillis.
YouTube Video of the Week:
Hitchhiker gives Psycho the ax, the raw footage.
Well, the video above is the raw, uncensored footage of 2013’s biggest viral sensation so far. Kai with no last name was hitchhiking, when the driver of the car he was riding in went nuts and ran into a utility worker, pinning them against their vehicle. Kai, decided to step in and make a difference. Now the internet has another catch phrase/meme to play with… Smash, Smash, Smash!

Game of the Week:
Firefall is a sci-fi MMO shooter set in a future Earth. A starship disaster unleashes a titanic energy storm called the Melding. It envelopes the earth, wipes out most of the planet, and spawns hostile creatures who self-proclaim themselves the Chosen.
Players must band together. Uniting in the form of armies, players will need to collect resources to craft weapons and vehicles to fight back the apocalyptic threat of the Chosen invasion. Special Nano-technology suits of armour called Battleframes enhance the human race in this future Earth and allow players to jumpjet across battlefields, wield a variety of exotic weapons of heavy destruction, and use special abilities to reclaim the world.
Created by seasoned developers including the team-lead for vanilla WoW and the lead-designer of Tribes 1 and 2, Firefall’s combat is fast paced, furious, and plays like a top-tier action oriented shooter. But Firefall is equally an MMO, plunging hundreds of players into an all-out Player vs. Environment war against the Chosen army. It is the largest co-op shooter made to date and offers a unique gameplay experience not found anywhere else.
As always, I’m still open to suggestions for other categories, and for nominations to get included on the list. You can let me know at: oftheweekATleighcDOTcom
