Yes, you read that title correctly. Today’s Gaming Video of the Day is from a common series of videos in which people take a clip of Hitler and place captions in that have hilarity commence. Click here to see this funny video

I’m terribly sorry for the long hiatus, I have been unbelievably busy lately, and I don’t think the storm is going to calm anytime in the near future. However, I am going to try to budget more time here, making sure our viewers here at The Rotting Cartridge continue to receive everything we have promised. Above you see the music video for one of the hottest songs out right now, Adele’s “Rolling in the Deep”. I for one hated the song the first time I heard it, but then I heard it again in the movie I Am Number Four (review found here). It got me interested, and so I listened to the song in its entirety online. Wow, talk about being catchy. I must have had that song on loop for nearly half an our. I hope you all enjoy it as much as I did, and if it doesn’t sound amazing the first time, consider a second listen  and see if it grows on you like it did for me.

I just saw I Am Number Four the other day with some friends, and I have to admit, it was awesome. A boy is faced with a semi-typical mission, save his planet, but it takes a totally different direction after that. The movie has everything: action, mystery, weapons, friendships, romance, and more. It’s tough to talk about anything from this movie without giving away some details, so all I can really say is that it’s a MUST see. Anybody looking for a date movie, this would be a pretty good choice. The only possible negative that I can say about the movie is that the story is so intricate, that by the time the movie was over, I had so many questions to ask, but no answers. Thankfully it appears that it is left open for a sequel (I believe the books are supposed to be a 6 book series), so maybe some of these questions will be answered in the future. It’s one of the few movies we all sat through and didn’t say a word during because we were so into it. The first words came out when the credits began rolling, and they were, “That was awesome.” Go ahead and give this film a shot, I think you will be pleased with what you watch.

Wow. All I can say is, “Wow!” Battlefield 3 is starting to look like a top tier game. Battlefield was always known as a great multiplayer experience, but here comes one that looks like it could have an entertaining campaign to compliment it. The graphics are absolutely out of this world. While I was quite unsatisfied with Battlefield: Bad Company, Battlefield 3 looks like it could revive the series for me. I don’t want to give away any spoilers for the video (so make sure you watch it!), but I will say that it’s the definition of action packed. It also looks rather realistic (whether that’s good or bad, we won’t find out until release).  Make sure you don’t let this game go under your radar, it’s almost definitely going to be a contender for Game of the Year. It’s supposed to hit shelves late 2011, no definite date as of yet.

“All I Ever Wanted” is the Rotting Cartridge Song of the Day, brought to you by Basshunter. Hopefully whatever you listen to this song through has some bass, but if not, that’s alright too (it’s just how the song shines). It includes some simple yet awesome lyrics, sure to make anybody a fan. It’s also the perfect song for you and your friends to get up and just dance to. I know it always put my friends and me in a great mood, hopefully it does the same for you! I’ll allow Basshunter to do the rest of the work for this post.

Today’s Song of the Day is David Cook’s “Come Back to Me”. This song always reminds me of special someone and I’m sure most people can say the same. Along with that, I absolutely love singing along to this song as I drive around in my car. It might seem corny, but especially around the 2:30 mark, it’s just awesome to belt out a couple of notes and really think about that special person in your life, and how much they really mean to you. So once you’re done listening to this song, maybe you’ll feel inspired, inspired enough to give that special someone a call. Go do it! I’m sure it will mean the world to him or her. And for my special someone, I doubt you’re reading this, but if you are, you know who you are ;-]  I’ll let David Cook do the rest of the talking. Just sit back and relax, and maybe write some comments about the person that this song reminds you of. I hope everything works out for the best for all of you out there.

Today’s Gaming Video of the Day is the trailer for Modern Warfare 3. It’s full of action, but possibly too much. Call of Duty is known for overdone campaigns with dull stories, but they’re always full of plenty of explosions, WHICH IS WHAT WE LIKE, RIGHT? Wrong. For once it would be nice to see someone actually spend some time on a Call of Duty campaign with a compelling story that people would actually want to follow and be a part of. Instead you get the same run of the mill story with predictable endings but plenty of BOOM! which is apparently all gamers care about. Who knew? But most people aren’t concerned about the campaign, the majority of Call of Duty players are in it for the multiplayer. Rest assured, I can almost guarantee you that this game will be loaded with the same mind numbingly dull multiplayer that the previous titles have had. I guess we’ll just have to wait and see.

Today’s Song of the Day is as new for me as it probably is for the majority of you; the band was shown to me today by a friend and I couldn’t be happier that he did so. This song is “Such Small Hands” by La Dispute, a post-hardcore/experimental rock group from Grand Rapids, Michigan. It comes off their only studio album, Somewhere at the Bottom of the River Between Vega and Altair, which was released back in 2008. The track isn’t very long, so please take your time and listen to the full thing. The raw emotion that comes out of lead vocalist Jordan Dreyer is truly remarkable. This can be found in all of La Dispute’s music and I have to say it is a nice change of pace. It gives me goosebumps when you hear him scream out his words of passion, something you don’t hear in mainstream music these days. I immediately downloaded the entire album because I liked their sound so much. Now I don’t expect the same from all of you but I wouldn’t be surprised if you did the same. Go ahead and vote about the song, and make sure to leave comments below! Remember, you don’t need an account to leave a comment, just start typing.

A preview of RAGE, a first person shooter set in a post-apocalyptic world, finds its way on to our Gaming Video of the Day. RAGE looks like a fantastic game that really reminds me of Borderlands. The game features some devastating looking weapons, as well as some incredibly intelligent AI. I will let the video do the rest of the talking as I hit the replay button on my screen. This is sure to be a hit for gamers everywhere. It will release on September 13, 2011 for Xbox 360, Playstation 3, and PC. Enjoy and be sure to come back for tomorrow’s Gaming Video of the Day!
