Weekly gaming videos: 'Kinect Joy Ride,' fake 'God of War 3'
Wednesday 08 December 2010
The most watched gaming videos from around the world include
Kinect Joy Ride's generous driving assists and a Chinese game's "homage" to Sony's
God of War 3 for the week ending December 8.
YouTube's number one is "Kinect GEL Ride," in which uploader Geltonz comes third in a Kinect Joy Ride race without moving a muscle. The technique doesn't work for players who are standing up, as he's since proven.
The French-based Dailymotion gaming chart is topped by a trailer for World of Jean-Pierre, a Web TV series about a World of Warcraft player starting on December 15 - a week after the game's Cataclysm expansion debuts.
In China, footage from the game Fighting God of War occupied first and second place on Tudou's chart, after controversy surrounding strong similarities to God of War 3's opening cinematic.
Japan's Nicovideo has a Super Smash Bros tutorial in first place, a Dead Rising walkthrough in second, and a cinematic for Monster Hunter Portable 3rd's final boss fight in third.
