"Bottom of the Barrel" Explained



Tony and Nick explain “Bottom of the Barrel”.

If you don’t want to watch you can read; we will play a game this coming weekend and film ourselves (and the screen) while playing it. The hook? It won’t be a good game. Either the story, presentation, and/or gameplay will be terrible and we’re digging to the “Bottom of the Barrel” to bring them to you, hopefully with some funny commentary.

Look for it this coming week!

Sunday Afternoon Time Waster - Halloween Edition




Us here at Barrel Roll News don’t want to scare you. No, that’s not our true intentions. So for this week in honor of All Hallows Eve (and our fancy dancy site layout) I’m throwing up a ghost prank video that’s scary for at least one person. This is probably why all Japanese people are so up tight. Sorry guys.

Oh I’m excited about this week’s movie. It is the one of the major contributing factors and inspirations for the Metal Gear series. I speak of Escape from LA.

Sunday Afternoon Time Waster - Metal Gear Solid Philanthropy





In light of all these new Metal Gear announcements I thought it would be fitting to share with you guys not only a really good fan made Metal Gear film, but probably one of the best fan made films ever made.

Okay, so I don’t expect all you to go through this entire movie. Myself? I thought this was a work of genius. I wish the Hive Division guys luck in getting the rest of the movie made.
