Next Gen Estar Guars

"holy shit!!!!" was the first thing out of my mouth after seeing this video, courtesy of Kotaku. It's test footage, apparantly, of a next gen Star Wars game, presumably for Xbox360 and PS3 (boo!!!). It looks great, but without any concrete evidence of when it's coming out, it's vaporware for now.

Portal of Suck

Sometimes on craigslist.org you run into weird shit. But this has got to be the shittiest excuse for a videogame to ever cross my path. and i'm a fan of Chubby Cherub. This post on craigslist was the catalyst to my collision with the portal of suck known forevermore as Galloping Ghost Productions. They are developing a game (set for release this year!!!) "similar to the older Mortal Kombat games" called Dark Presence and were looking for" actors". it is basically a remake of mortal kombat, with the same technology ( i.e. animated high res gifs) and other "revolutionary" elements. seems like they are so confident in their product that a sequel (!) is in the works, too!!!!

WTF?!?!!? I swear i'm not making this shit up. i'm sure there are plenty of people cleverer(?) than me, who can give this game the roasting it deserves, so have at it!!!!
anyway, here is a partial feature list directly from the site......
Dark Presence is the first digitized fighting game to utilize weapons throughout the entire game.

Dark Presence also runs at a frame rate of 30 frames per second. (wow!!! no flickering!!!)

Characters have left and right sides. NO image flipping! ( AWESOME!!!!)

Realistic moves. This game is very realistic. No throwing fireballs. Only true-to-life weapon-to-weapon fighting. (and ass-to face graphics)

A combo system with reactions like you've never seen before. No generic animations. If you hit a fighter left, they roll right.(WTF????) If you punch them in the stomach they hunch forward.

Over 350 moves and reactions per character!

Well developed characters and stories. I bet.....

No palette swapped characters. DAMN, they even have the balls to diss a 15 year old game!!!SNAP!!!!

All the characters and all there weapons are unique. Yeah like this guy. or this one. She's original, all right.....

A rockin' sound track. cowabunga, dude!!!

and the best part of all......(drumroll)
There are several features pending being added. Such as:
THE SHOCK BAND - a bracelet worn by the player where if a finishing move is done, the loser receives a small totally controlled and harmless shock.
A prize drawer. If you are first in your arcade to finish the game you receive a prize relating to that character you won with, on the spot!

i especially like the fact that the game cabinet shocks the fuck out of you after a fatality.

Portal Demo

Electronic Art's new game Portal is shown, with emphasis on the portal tech that is stolen from the recently released Prey. it's still pretty cool, and a step above what is possible in Prey.

The Fountain


So one of my favorite directors is finally getting ready to release his next flick. the guy is Darren Aronofsky and the film is The Fountain. The film got a write up at AICN, and it went something like this.
Acts of faith. Acts of devotion. Acts of love. In Darren Aronofsky's THE FOUNTAIN, these are all the same thing, the acts that connect his characters to something larger. The greatest miracle of this beautiful, human science-fiction story is that he's managed to make a film about infinity that pays full service to the subject while managing to only run 98 minutes. Not many films can blow your mind and break your heart at the same time, but this one will.

Sounds good to me.... and Aronofsky has never let me down yet......

super Mario nerds.

I found this just trolling on tinypics.com. They look a tad bit smug. Normally I would just move on, but there is a problem here. Princess Peach is a dude. Now I'm pretty sure that it's all for fun, bunch of kids just screwing around, but the deeper issue of how that guy's life has degenerated to the point that he'd dress up like PRINCESS PEACH, and then consent to having his pic taken with the motley bunch of scaliwags that no doubt coerced him into wearing his little sister's sunday best is fucked up. And look closely. Look REALLY closely. Yep, the fucker is SMILING.

is a mp3 blog that i stumbled upon while bullshitting at work today. it has a few tracks from a band from chicago called Russian Circles. actually, the blog that has the tracks is Black Balloon.

They sound like Mogwai, with a Red Bull vibe.

You can do some very interesting (and creepy) things with landscape photography when you get creative with an infrared filter. This site has some examples, with cool-looking landscapes that i would imagine taste GREAT!!!!
