A user, UOLATSC, on Reddit came up with a compelling fan theory about the Tarantino Universe (http://www.reddit.com/r/AskReddit/comments/ubaqq/what_fan_theories_have_blown_your_mind_with_their/c4tzvnn) Read below : Inglourious Basterds spoiler below. It’s well known that all of Tarantino’s films take place in the same universe – this is established by the fact that Mr. Blonde and Vince Vega are brothers, everybody smokes Red Apple [...]
Gay rights have been a huge issue in the American spotlight recently, especially with the passing of new legislature such as SB 6239 in Washington State granting same-sex marriages to be issued on June 7th, 2012. Although, one might applaud progressive states for introducing gay friendly addenums to the long list of laws, change must ultimately [...]
I love these types of comics that poke holes (and fun) in the universe of certain games. I’ve always imagined Mario would turn into a giant rampaging boot of death after eating several mushrooms but this next comic almost gave me a hernia!
I love sushi, among other things, but this doesn’t look appealing..
While we hold our breath for the upcoming release of D3, watch the bonus content from start to finish! Diablo 3 Developer Diaries, Part 1 : Game Director Jay Wilson, Art Director Christian Lichtner, and Lead Software Engineer Jason Regier sat down last spring to discuss the state of Diablo III development in this exclusive first video [...]
I was in tears in listening to this! T-minus 11 hours and 45 minutes until launch! Credits go to Chris Wright. Check him out at http://www.facebook.com/taernim
The guys, and girls, over at Vulture, did an interesting analysis of the movie and recorded each character’s total screen-time, as well as the length of important dialogue between certain characters. Here’s the break down: Hawkeye: 12:44 It’s no surprise that Jeremy Renner’s assassin was the recipient of the least screen time. His talent involves being [...]
I can’t contain my excitement. The diablo franchise has been my favorite game since my parents first bought a computer back in the late 90s or early 2000s. It will be awesome to see which new features blizzard has integrated into diablo 3, especially with their experience since the wildly popular World of Warcraft. To [...]
Holy shit! Okay, I just had to get that out of the way, phew. This cake is epic! I wouldn’t be surprised if it was included in the next Elder Scrolls game as an Easter egg (hint hint Bestheda). According to the creator, Vera, on her site http://www.bakingobsession.com/, To make the whole thing proportional, I had to scale [...]
According to an article by Tom Curtis on Gamasutra, Blizzard, Valve, and Riot, s2 games, have settled the long-standing confusion regarding the rights of Dota. These companies have basically produced the same game four ways, with minor changes and added features. It’s interesting, and somewhat refreshing, to see a case settled so quickly. Especially when [...]
I thought the trailer would turn out to be a spoof but o’lawdy was I wrong! Time magazine states, “Twentieth Century Fox wasn’t kidding around when it bought the rights to Seth Grahame-Smith’s Abraham Lincoln, Vampire Hunter. The 2010 mashup novel — the unlikely hit follow-up to Grahame-Smith’s absurd Pride and Prejudice and Zombies — is an epic [...]
Be prepared to take a break from the internet for 10 minutes!
Awesomely hilarious fan-made video! From the author (Harry101UK), “The full music-video for ‘This Is Aperture’ – a Portal-style remake of ‘This Is Halloween’ from The Nightmare Before Christmas. I made this as part of project ‘Goodbye Christmas Caroline.’” It just came out a few days ago! Be sure to check it out before it goes viral!
I’ve also been a huge Hitman fan! Check out these two trailers and epic gameplay footage! I love when games are able to interweave the perfect balance of gameplay and cinema! I think it elevates the game to a new level. The game is set to be released sometime during this upcoming year (2012). [...]
Rumors have recently sprung up that Microsoft plans to discontinue Microsoft Points (and phase them out by the end of 2012). Who knows, the world may end before this plans come to fruition. On a more serious note, Microsoft’s decision seems a little puzzling from a business point of view. As aggravating as it may [...]
Lego recently announced, “We are now developing a concept that celebrates the best aspects of building with the [Lego] system and in Minecraft and we can’t wait to show it to you—but we aren’t ready just yet.” I’m surprised it took Lego this long to acquire the rights to distribute building sets for Minecraft. It seems like the perfect [...]
It would be awesome to see if next-gen games could get to this level of detail during gameplay! Although according to an animator and modeler, ” 4 million polygons is entirely overkill for that model, and for the industry. That render looks impressive for a few reasons, a few of which are already available in [...]
