No holds barred, no time for move fakin’…
Its the most wonderful time ooof the yeeeeaaaar!
Fact: Andy Williams released that song (if you don’t know what song I’m talking about, click the hyperlink above) on October 14th, 1963. NBA 2K15 releases October 7th. Coincidence? I think not.
Yes, ladies and gentleman, its that time of the year where 2K Sports treats us to the NBA 2K Momentous trailer. The song you hear in it is Scenario by A Tribe Called Quest (of whom Maximus, who tipped me off on this trailer, is a fan). Last years had Macklemore, for those of you wanting to know.
I’m sure it’ll happen again in the near future…
Bruce Wayne, who grew up to become one helluva detective with the alias “Batman“, has seen his parents die many, many times in the movie world. Vulture‘s Abraham Riesman did the world a favor and put together a supercut showing us this unfortunate incident again, and again, and again in Batmans Parents Dying: The Supercut.
Deaths shown in the video took happened in:
1985: The Super Powers Team: Galactic Guardians (Cartoon)
1989: Batman (The Tim Burton movie)
2005: Batman Begins
2008 (twice): In Batman: Gotham Knight (Animated Movie) and Batman: The Brave and the Bold (Cartoon)
2011: Batman: Year One (Animated Movie)
2013 (twice): The Dark Knight Returns (Animated Movie) and Batman: Arkham Origins (Video Game)
2014: Gotham (TV Series)
R.I.P Thomas and Martha Wayne
“Get ready to die asshole!”
The cost to make a decent live-action trailer for Insomniac Games‘ hyper-real 3rd person shooter Sunset Overdrive would be ridiculously high if it ended up showing something even remotely close to what the game is going to be. This mostly has to do with the extreme amount of physically impossible stunts, along with the explosions. Theres a lot of explosions. And Insomniac Games knew this. Thats why the appropriately titled “The Live Action Trailer for the Game Too Big for a Live Action Trailer” is so awesome.
If you haven’t seen any gameplay from the latest by the makers of Ratchet and Clank, I’ll put a few videos on the next page, just click on the pic below the trailer. Sunset Overdrive hits shelves October 28th.
Looks like a big winner…
I just got off work and was planning on going straight to bed, then the absolutely gorgeous, haunting, and sad Ori and the Blind Forest Prologue Trailer caught my eye. If this game turns out half as captivating as it looks, Moon Studios may have a 2D masterpiece on their hands, and if thats the case I hope a lot of people buy it so they can make another game soon (they’ve been working on Ori about four years according to the official website). Being a video game studio isn’t easy these days, meaning they shut down like crazy.
Anyways, enjoy this magnificent trailer, and CLICK ON THE PIC BELOW THE TRAILER TO SEE AN AWESOME GALLERY OF SCREEN CAPS.
Back to La Luna!…
After a week off, I’m going back to Bungie‘s online persistent world fps Destiny. My Warlock character sits at a level 10 and just got done with his first few missions on the moon. It was very cool.
You can watch gameplay and commentary from the beginning (or even broken up into highlights) by CLICKING HERE. In the next week or two we are planning to really work on a new YouTube page too where we’ll post all our gameplay / highlight videos. So if you don’t have the time to watch it live, those are some great ways to see what we’re up to.

Two legends in three days…
Iiiiiiits Monday! And I fucking love Mondays! Because here at Play It Black its #MusicMonday, and this one’s definitely special.
Today, September 22nd sits between two important dates: on September 21st, 1950, Bill Murray was born, and slightly less than a year earlier, September 23, 1949, Bruce Springsteen, aka “The Boss” came into the world. So lets wish these two gangsters a Happy Happy Happy Happy Birthday from Play It Black by taking a look at some of my favorite videos!

An epic Super Bowl rematch looms…
IIIIIIITS GAMEDAY! Hawk will be amongst the 67,000 or so at Century Link Field to watch a rematch of Super Bowl XLVIII between the Seahawks and Broncos. He even brought Liana, who is a Broncos fan, but we’ll forgive her for that. 😛
I’ll be on and off on Twitter, you can follow the feed below the video.
