Red Steel 2 is a title that is designed around controlling weapons and combating enemies in a way that has never been seen before.

Red Steel 2 is all about ACCURACY and PRECISION – not only do you have these weapons at your disposal, but you have full control.
The main character, known as The Swordsman, is a member of the "Kusagari-clan", who were almost all killed by a clan called "The Jackals". Now, as one of the last survivors, The Swordsman sets off on a mission to avenge his fallen clan, and begins hunting down the leader of the Jackals, named Payne.

Players will be able to fight up to six enemies at a time, and will be able to deflect their opponents' bullets with their sword.Gamers will also have the chance to fully calibrate Wii MotionPlus to their tastes. As the player progresses, new abilities and weapons will be available for the player to either purchase or earn. Gameplay is made special by combos, finishing moves and other kills.

You're looking at a mosquito who got taken down mid-flight by a "Death Star" laser gun designed by Nathan Myhrvold. The malaria-carrying pest never saw it coming, but you can watch everything happen over and over again in this video. This malaria-seeking laser device targets out the nasty little creatures and terminates them on the spot. Just make sure you don't hum at or around 17KHz and you've got yourself the perfect backyard BBQ companion! Best use of laser technology ever. Aside from Real Genius.

It is older than Chuck Norris and was laid down in a small Scottish distillery the year before the outbreak of the Second World War. A dram of this 70 year old single malt will set you back over $450. That's a glass. For over $400. A bottle is about $15,000. Them scotch drinkers have some ridiculously rich blood!
