The New, Remodeled Wii U Controller Leaked

Matty Boosh, a QA tester from TellTale Games, posted a picture of the remodeled Wii U controller on his Twitter. So what's different about this controller you ask? Look at the control sticks, they used to be circle pads before when it was first unveiled and now they've changed it into the good old control sticks just like every other normal control have. Thank god they changed it because I can't stand the circle pad on the 3DS. They even implemented the offset of the buttons and d-pad now. The start and select buttons were moved as well. Here's the picture of the original model from last year's E3.

Here's a quote from the video description:

Dubstep is ruining trailers for me. Keep that trash out of gaming.

Salivating Items of The Day - Darth Maul & The Rhino

First off is this awesome statue of the Sith Lord, Darth Maul.  It stands at just around 18" and can be pre-ordered now and ships in time for Halloween!  You can drop $250 now or set up payments at Sideshow Collectibles.

 And just in case you got some extra scratch, this Rhino Statue is LEGIT!  Pre-order is up now also at Sideshow or $400 clams!  I don't think the Rhino Statue comes with the apple, but it's still mighty sweet.

The Last of Us: Joel And Ellie Truck Ambush Cinematic

Naughty Dog has done it again with another great trailer for their next title, The Last of us.  Uncharted was my pick for game of the year of 2011, and it seems that this team is getting another vote from me, with a whole new different I.P.

8bit Song of the Day: B-Sides #07

Nirvana has got to be my favorite band of all time just because of the raw energy they emited, but this so called artist(Miley) is just doing "Smells Like Teen Spirit" no justice.  She should just stick to that pop garbage she sings.

Instead Listen to this version instead.

Gametrailers Anthology Channel has so many great channels but I recently went through their Anthology collection and its like no other style of game related media.  The Gametrailer's crew are not trying to be quirky, flashy,or over the top with their production of every piece. They spit out straight out cold hard facts of cool old games.

Ever wondered why  Pac-Man  has such a weird name or how many times did the Yaschichi collectible showed up in the  Megaman series?  I just wish there were more videos to view... I have some suggestions: Castlevania, Ninja Gaiden(arcade version), Contra, and most of all Legend of Zelda: Link to the Past(SNES).

Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance Pics

Hideo Kojima got a chance to play the E3 demo before anyone else. He took pictures of the start screen and posted them on twitter. 

There's also concept art of a new enemy that's going to be in Rising.

Tron: Uprising- Prelude Episode

This is looking really good. There are some strong contenders this year for best cartoon series, and from the looks of it this will be one of them. The art design is really slick. Looks like the same guy that did the art design for the intro to Beatles Rock Band did the art direction for this cartoon, Albeto Mielgo.

Happy Mother's Day!

Happy Mother's Day from everyone here at 8BitSpit!
