Blizzard Entertainment have released a video on their history in conjunction with their 20 years anniversary. Interesting even if it's really a promotion video. link

SUMOH have made an amplifier specialized for one of my favorite gadgets: Squeezebox. link

The first teaser trailer for the new Conan the Barbarian movie has been released. And the trailer is just teasing, as there is really no moving pictures here, just characters in smoke. link

Battlefield 3

The hype for Battlefield 3 is revving up it's engines for take off. This week was a video called "Fault Line Series Episode 1: Bad Part of Town" with about 2 minutes and 30 second of in game footage released by Dice/EA. Seems to be apart of a series as the video promises an other part 16. March.

This is the first time a video with more than just glimpses of in game footage is released. Because of this and that everybody (including me) agrees that it looks very good, has the release created quite a stir across the internets.

I'm even starting to notice that the hype is getting a hold on me. The urge to get the game is getting noticeable, and I'm looking forward to the next installment in the Fault Line Series.

A good site for official information on everything Battlefield seems to be the Battlefield blog. This entry that shows some old design documents and concepts for Battlefield 1942 brings back old memories.

This is a martial arts action movie from Thailand. What's special about this movie is that it has a young woman as the lead character. She is involved in all the fights in the film, and she does it rather well.

The first 30 min of the film is setup, and have little fighting. Then the lead character gets in fighting mode by a short nice looking animated piece. After that most of the film is fighting or setups for fighting and the final 30 minutes have several fight scenes stringed back to back.

The fights are intense and look really hurtful, both for our heroine and her poor combatants. Especially the final fight scene where they fight on the facade of a 3 story high building, where there are lots of nasty looking falls.

The story is basically a kind of Romeo and Juliet setup with hooks attached to initiate fighting sequences. But if you likes to watch martial art fighting movies i can recommend Chocolate.

Watch out for the lady-boys, interesting choice for a mafia entourage.
