I’m sure by now anyone who’s into zombie films, games or just zombies in general will be aware of this new film that has only just recently been released in the last week: Zombieland. Those very same people would have probably watched it in the first couple of days, but I only came about watching it due to going out with a friend. I’m not really a fan of zombie films, you see. However, I actually came away from this film with the sense of a good watch and definite answer of a “film you should definitely watch if you’re zombie fan and for anyone who likes a bit of action-comedy every so often.” So, why should you go to see this film then?

Pathetic ploy, really is….

Short Thought

Listening to the BBC News Online TV stream thingy and I keep hearing about the damm Libya thing every half-hour and how everyone is now saying, “yez, thz Governzment don’t carez aboutz it’s citizenz and theyz justz wantz oil stillz rollingz inz etc…” For christ sake, we’ve known this since he started coming into the media highlight after all these years!

They’re going mad about this and latching on to it like it was about the little-known-over-here-in-Britain Iran-Contra affair- and we all know how hilarious that was, right? If not, here:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Iran%E2%80%93Contra_affair . Of course, the damm Nu-Labor Government would make deals like this. I mean, no compenstation for us (the victims and families of the victims), that bomber released and welcome on a plane trip home with open arms…

Oh, and don’t forget the bit of oil we get to keep as a result- oh no, please don’t forget that…Has anyone not relised that the whole, recent Lockerbie debacle was over oil supllies and “diplomatic relations”? In fact, the BBC – more likey Government intervention – have gone so far as to ploy a way out of this by asking some rather defensive questions. Now how’s that for your morning news? Well, those are just my little irritated ramblings for now, but I may expand on this further later on.

Studios Killed The Indie Star

I recently watched Moon this week which is a great little indie film directed by Duncan Jones and the main actor in it is Sam Rockwell. I’m not talking about the film in this article but I do have to say I recommend it whole heartedly. Anyway to watch this film I had to go to a 9:00 clock showing which is the only thing they had over 4 days or something like that. It actually surprised me that my cinema got it at all, usually with these films you have to go to London to watch them. And this got me thinking in how Indie Films aren’t really been catered to anyone without going through many hoops, and that’s just the ones that go to cinema. There are many that interest me that don’t actually get into the cinema or on DVD and it gets tough not to go to any more disrespectful means to watch them even if I can watch them there. (more…)

Beta Testing: Fallen Earth

So a a new MMO beta test has come out for Fileplanet account holders, this new MMO is called Fallen Earth and I’m here to give my initial thoughts on the game from just playing the tutorial. I may write some more as i go along playing the game or I may stop playing it and these are my only thoughts. But before I do that you will want some information on the game and maybe a link to this Beta.

Fallen Earth is a post-apocolyptic MMO shooter, and if that sounds like a weird mash up well it is. It is set in the future or another planet, its not entirily clear which where the Human race has been ravaged by something and are living in a post apocolyptic wasteland. Maybe. Since I’ve only played a bit and none of that I ever saw the surface world so I’m only¬†guessing here that there might be a wasteland for all I know you can’t go there and you can only explore undeground.

If you want to try the beta yourself go here.

I know gaming has come a long way, its changing day to day, but tell me What do the Children Play?

I know that seems a strange question because at this time it seems a lot of games are coming out and they soon might be recognized as a true art form. If you look more closely though at the kind of games we are championing or the major games that are being bought that question should be asked more then ever. (more…)
