In the reserves

I downloaded the demo for The Outfit off of Xbox Live last night. The first game I got whooped, as I had no clue what I was supposed to be doing. The second game was a little bit better. I kind of got a grasp on the concept and controls, and at least put up a fight. As someone who hadn't been actively following the development of the game, I'm not fairly interested. I'll get on XBL with the demo some more over the next week, and try to get more of a feel for the game.

I posted a link to the X3 trailer yesterday, which I think looks great. I've got my fingers crossed that Ratner will do a good job now that Singer is off doing our Superman movie. From the trailer it looks like the movies are going to go out with a really big bang. Let's hope so.

Hot on the trails of the new... erm, trailer, are a whole bunch of new screenshots from the X-men 3 video game. Brian pointed out to be that it was interesting that you could play as Nightcrawler, when Nightcrawler won't be in the movie. He also informs me that the reason Nightcrawler won't be in the film is because supposedly Alan Cumming didn't want to deal with the makeup again. Weak.

Burnout Revenge and G.R.A.W. are out now on the 360. Still no G.R.A.W. demo like I've been hoping for. Will I buy it anyway? Probably, because I'm a sucker for new 360 titles.

Someone else tells me that the reason Nightcrawler isn't in the new film is because they didn't ask him back. They decided they had too many "blue mutants" (Mystique, Beast) in the film.

That sounds even stupider than the makeup thing.
