Yeah, I know this game is 9 months old already, but I find that it’s still relevantÂ to talk about it.
When I talk about modern gaming bringing the creativity and overall fun of gaming down, I usually state Halo, Call of Duty and God of War, as well as their legions of bad clones, as examples as to why gaming is currently sucking. But they have NOTHING on Heavy Rain in this regard. Heavy Rain is a display of almost everything that’s wrong about modern gaming. I took my time (9 months…) about getting it as a rental because I knew from the start I wouldn’t like it. But I wasn’t expecting it to be THIS bad considering how it has been getting positive reviews… But wow… This is BAD. WTF is wrong with everybody?

Console, Movie, ps3, Review
Well I just came back from seeing Scott Pilgrim vs the World. And… well, I was originally planning on having one big super-post reviewing the whole of Scott Pilgrim, including the movie, the game, and the comic. But after seeing the movie, I realized I had a lot more to say about it than I was originally expecting. As such, I’ll review the game and movie separately (and will not bother with reviewing the awesome comic series).
Just a quick look at how I got into Scott Pilgrim: I never heard about it, at all, until I saw the first trailer for the movie. And I thought it looked awesome. And then I found out it was actually based on a comic book, so I went and read it, though I waited a while before doing so, so I ended up reading the comic, multiple times, back in June (and the final volume, multiple times, the day it came out). Loved every second of it so I set my expectations for the movie pretty high.Â And than add the fact that it’s being made by Edgar Wright… yeah, I was really damn hyped.
So read on and see what I liked and didn’t like about the movie!
(NOTE: THERE WILL BE SPOILERS, BUT I’LL TRY TO NOT SPOIL TOO MUCH)
This is a movie I was quite excited about for 2 reasons. First, it’s Alice in Wonderland. And I LOVED the original animated film by Disney, which still lives up to this day. Second reason is that it’s made by Tim Burton, a man who made wonderful movies like Ed Wood and The Nightmare Before Christmas, amongst others(like the beetlejuice cartoons).
Another tiny draw was the fact that the movie was presented in 3D. I didn’t watch Avatar in 3D, so I was quite interested in seeing if the new 3D technology was worth all the hype it was getting.
So read on and see what I thought of the movie, and what I thought of the 3D technology used in it!
(Note: I did not see the movie in Imax, just the “Disney Digital 3D” version of it)
impressions, Movie, Review
Well, I could just say “O_O” and be done with it for this mini-review, but that wouldn’t do the film justice. I wasn’t exactly sure what to expect but I did hear lots of great reviews on this, so I went in there knowing it would probably be okay. But I was wrong… it was GREAT.
So let’s go just a little bit more in detail and talk about one of the weirdest people in the world of cinema!
Read on! (Yeah, I know this movie is 15 years old, but I just saw it for the first time and I thought I should share my thoughts with everyone)
Movie, Random, retro, Review
Well it was leaked on the internet, and refusing to give money to the idiots who, as all DB fans predicted, destroyed the franchise, I checked it out online, on a site that have it streaming. Well… surprisingly I sat through it all, so here are my impressions of it. (Hint: They’re not positive)(Tip: Don’t watch it, even if your life depends on it)
Damn, how long did I wait for this movie? It was around my second year of college, so at least 3 years ago, probably close to 4 years by now. Needless to say, I was constantly doubting this movie would actually come out beyond random screenings at places far from here. But at total random I check out the video store’s release list and lo and behold, I see My Name Is Bruce. So it’s actually coming out? Really?
As excited as I was, I had to wait a bit to watch it, because I wanted to see it with friends. But finally, no more than 20 minutes ago, I watched it.
Was it worth the wait? Read on! (don’t worry, really short review, with a few screenshots at the end)

The new look Leon and Claire, back in action.
Resident Evil Degeneration is Capcom’s answer to the Hollywood smash hit take on the survival horror franchise that has revolutionised the genre time and time again. Instead of Alice and her telekinetic powers, we see a pre-Resident Evil 4 Leon team up with an old friend to combat a new outbreak. Is this film the true film adaptation of Resident Evil? Or is it as lifeless as a zombie? Read on to find out…
Note: Beware of a few spoilers.

This is hilarious. I choked trying not to laugh out loud.

Video game movies tend to suck ass. There are a few exceptions of course, but overall, for some reason movie makers can’t do any good when it comes to making video game movies.
But can you really go wrong with a movie with hot japanese girls in bikinis/schoolgirl outfits killing zombies with katanas that also parodies everything anime/zombie flick/action movie? The answer is no, you can’t go wrong with that. And that is really all Onechanbara is about.
During their Fall Press Conference today, Nintendo have – as expected – announced a new version of the Nintendo DS. Called the Nintendo DSi, it eschews the GBA slot (boo!) in favour of a slight downsizing (it’s a little thinner) and a range of improvements. The handheld’s screens have been enlarged, and will now be 17% bigger (at 3.25 inches) than those found on the DS Lite. As for the rumoured additions, both have proven to be correct, with “audio enhancements” made to the handheld, while it will also now include a .3 megapixel (640×480) camera. And that’s just the start of it.
The DSi also features an SD memory card slot, making it possible to take pictures with the DSi and then view them on the Nintendo Wii. The DSi features a built-in browser, and it’s possible to download games and keep them on the DSi.
For digital delivery purchases, there is a DSi Shop, from which users can download DSiWare from. Pricing categories for the DSiWare are: Free, 200 points, 500 points and “Premium” or 800 points. Customers will get 1000 free points to spend at the DSi Shop that are good until March 2010.
The DSi will be released in Japan on November 1. It will retail for ï¿¥18,900 (USD$180), and will be available in two colours, white and black.
