Ah Shenmue, back in the day of the Dreamcast this game was popular for a number of reasons. It was the first game to introduce QTE button presses, the first to include a fighting game inside an RPG, as well as the first game to make an environment look as amazing as it did. The bad part about it, however, was the game reportedly helped bankrupt Sega and kill the Dreamcast.
Last night we had the 83rd annual Oscar’s, I’ve compiled a list of the winners for each category for everyone to see. I think I predicted The King’s Speech on our podcast not too long ago when it was announced. Just due to the fact that I have not seen it yet and thats how these things usually go.
Well, the past weekend I found myself a little too tired to play video games so I just wanted to relax and enjoy something funny. Turning on my Xbox, I booted up Netflix and was recommended ‘The Guild’. I personally haven’t read any reviews on this web series that is brought to us by Felicia Day, but I have of course heard a little about it since I too am an online game addict with World of Warcraft. So I finally got around to watching the web series and all it’s 4 seasons that we currently have.
Let’s face it; zombies are the hot thing right now. Pretty much everyone is trying to cash in on the zombie phenomena, and due to that I believe the market is really starting to get flooded with everything zombie. I can’t blame the makers of these products, as they are just trying ways to make money in this troubled world we live in. However, I have to say that if you do choose to create something zombie related, please take notes from these creators, Kc Weyland and Shane Salk. They are currently making a podcast that will just blow you all away.
On again, off again, on again. It seems like the rumor that the iPad 2 was getting delayed has been greatly exaggerated. The WSJ is reporting that the iPad 2 will be revealed next week. This coming after reports this morning that both the iPhone 5 and iPad 2 were going to be delayed a few months.
Nolan’s Batman reaches it’s climactic conclusion next summer by the way of Dark Knight Rises. I wanted to make the argument that this might be the greatest trilogy of all time. Now quickly people are going to throw out the original Star Wars films, and Back to the Future, and my friend Kent will say that the Bourne Series is an amazing trilogy. But really think about how amazing these films have been, and what we will be without once Nolan finishes his story.
