Although I am not familiar with this game I think I know what you mean. This is an effect that you see in broadcast work a lot and one that I really like.

One way to do this is by using the Track Mat keys in the timeline widow. OK here goes:

1. create a photoshop file making it the same dimensions as your comp in AE (720x 486 or whatever)

2. in Photoshop, create a series of layers(black or any other color), that when put together fill the entire screen-as if a single filled screen has been divied up into strips that are saved on different layers.

3.Bring the file into AE as a comp--not footage. Now UNDER each layer place a copy of the shot that you want to apply the effect to. Apply multiple copies of the same shot until each photoshop layer has a video layer benith it.

4. select the video shot and from the Switches/Modes column, select alpha track mat.

5. now wherever you place the photoshop layer, it will be filled with the underlying video! Do this to all the layers, then try animating the PHOTOSHOP layers. Add blurs, color effects and different scales to the VIDEO and you get some nice effects.
