If you watch TV which I have a feeling most of you do then you will have probably heard the original a fair few times in an advert for a well known fruit juice drink.

Both videos will be available in all territories for your approval from 3PM on Thursday 20th May

To quote: Hot on the heels of the Monster Hunter skin announcement earlier in the week we now have more very special guests making their presence felt on the PS3 version of Lost Planet 2...
E.D.N.III is a harsh place, a planet where you must fight against vicious akrid and the hostile elements. It takes a particularly double hard bastard to take on these odds and they don't come much tougher than the Helghast Assault and Helghast Scout troops.
The most feared units from Killzone now get to take on Lost Planet 2's pirate factions and the deadly giant Akrid. These skins will be available to download for free on PSN from the end of June.
I also wanted to say thanks to all of you who posted comments on my last post. In answer to the question from LAClennell, yes, Frank West is also available in the PS3 version of the game!
188w ago - Epic Games via Electronic Arts has released the first screenshots from their upcoming first-person shooter titled Bulletstorm today, which will hit the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and Microsoft Windows in 2011.
Bulletstorm takes place in a futuristic setting where a futuristic confederation is being protected by an elite band of mercenaries known as Dead Echo.
When Dead Echo members Grayson Hunt and Ishi Sato discover that they had been working on the wrong side, they betray their squad commander and end up being exiled to the edges of the galaxy.
Bulletstorm will allow players to "step into the role of Grayson Hunt complete with an arsenal of over-the-top combat moves and outrageously large guns."
The developers also revealed that "Bulletstorm's array of distinct 'skillshots' produces unprecedented levels of frantic gameplay and yell-inducing satisfaction. The skillshot system rewards players for inciting mayhem in the most creative way possible.
The more insane the skillshot, the more points players collects to upgrade their character and unlock weapons, which then allows them to execute even more creative moves and exaggerated skillshots.
Check out some new screenshots from the video game below!
