Global gaming videos: 'Black Ops First Strike,' WoW cartoon, game glitches
Thursday 03 February 2011
Black Ops takes the number one spot on YouTube's gaming chart for the week on February 3 for the second time in a row, but this time with a full trailer for the
First Strike multiplayer maps instead of the preview teaser video.
Fan film Fallout: Nuka Break pays homage to the world of Fallout 3 and Fallout New Vegas, while fighting series Mortal Kombat attempts to regain its controversial reputation with a bone-crunching developer diary.
Top on China's Tudou site is the first episode in a new season of I'm MT, a Chinese World of Warcraft cartoon. It's a cult animated series presented in a signature cel-shaded style, with unofficial translators doing their best to release subtitled versions for international fans.
NicoVideo in Japan has as its most viewed clip of the week a compiliation of glitches and bugs found in some of 2006/7's most popular titles: FIFA and Pro Evolution Soccer, Oblivion, BioShock, Crysis, Halo 3 and Modern Warfare, to name a few.
Also featuring in Nicovideo's chart are a rip of the Next Generation Portable presentation, complete with Monster Hunter 3rd demonstration, and a playthrough of the Japan-only video board game Momotaro Dentetsu 15 (PS2/Wii).
French website Millenium.org is using Dailymotion to host a short clip that precedes its web TV shows, hence the clip's sudden appearance in the Dailymotion top three.
