There is a game, currently up for voting on Steam Greenlight, that will force you to buy an extra screen (or replace yours with a super wide one). The game is called Super Chain Crush Horizon and (obviously) is an horizontal shmup from Japanese indie developer Mindware, and it features a native resolution of 3200 x 800! Yep, that’s huge! Here’s the press release.

3200 x 800 Adrenaline ! Blow away all standards with shooting on a galactic scale !

WILL WORK WITH ONE MONITOR! TWO IS BEST BUT NOT NEEDED!

A PC game with a stunning 3200×800 pixels for ultra widescreen shooting! Create the longest series of chained explosions ever seen on this massive screen! Completely fill your gigantic ultra charge shot gauge to unleash a massive explosion 2000 pixels wide! It blows away all standards and crushes the competition! Introducing Super Chain Crusher Horizon!

Curious about the game? Or about the above picture featuring two monitors from one of the producers of the game? Let’s take a look at the official trailer then!

Ok, everything’s nice…but what about a screen like this, to avoid the gap between the two monitors? Anyway, if you’re interested, you can buy the game here.

Huge Alien egg appears in London

12 Feb

Tomorrow, or better today (as it’s 1am while we’re writing this) it’s the release date for the highly anticipated (and delayed) Aliens: Colonial Marines.

We are pretty much fans of the Alien’s universe, but we don’t know if this upcoming Gearbox and SEGA‘s game could meet our expectations. We’ll see.

Anyway, SEGA had found a very cool way to promote its new title. Basically they’ve put a gigantic Alien egg just in front of the London’s Tower Bridge, and when we say gigantic, we mean like 6 meters tall…IT IS FUCKING HUGE!

The installation is completely open to the public, so if you live in London it may worth a closer look (hurry up, as we don’t know how long it’ll last).

just can't be unseen!

It just can’t be unseen!

Let's save the universe. Again.

Well done SEGA! We like this kind of advertisements!

 

There is a ridiculously huge (and expensive) games collection for sale on ebay

“After a life spent collecting video games I decide to sell off my entire collection”

This is how the italian seller opened his listing on ebay. He continued saying that he just has too much things and the space to store them is finished long ago…realizing that if he wants to play at least half of his games, he should lives two or three entire human life…

This games collection is incredibly huge, and just to give an idea, he spent the last two months of his life taking pictures and making lists, working about eight hours a day just in order to make an inventory and to figure out what he has, and this is INSANE!

It counts something like 6850 games, 330 consoles, 220 controllers and 185 various accessories and peripherals from which we can recognize basically everything is worthwhile in video games history! From ultra-rare and ultra-limited edition Biohazard Dreamcasts to impossibly expensive NEO GEO AES games, from the incredibly hard-to-find Hotel FamicomBox to never-seen 80s Game & Watches.

Enough nostalgia and collector rage? Good, let’s talk about money…do you have some savings? Or are you planning to sell your house or your 1st born? Because this collection will cost you $550.000 (yes, fivehundredfiftythousand freaking dollars), plus some unknown-but-for-sure-hugely-expensive delivery cost if you don’t live in Italy (yup, hard times in Italy right now).

If you’re interested (or just curious) you can check the complete game list here, the image library of all the items here and the actual ebay listing here.

At the time of writing the collection has received no bids.

**UPDATE (8 Feb 2013)**

Bidding has ended on this listing. The seller has relisted the items here.

**UPDATE (9 Feb 2013)**

We finally got a bidder for $550k! (but maybe it’s just a joke)

**UPDATE (12 Feb 2013)**

The listing has been removed from ebay. Some private buyer? We’ll never know…
