Community fans, you can finally stop holding your breath! Ever since NBC kicked Greendale and its Human Beings off of the network, us fans have been hoping, praying, doing rain dances, almost anything for another network to pick it up. There was talk for a while that perhaps Hulu or Netflix would pick up Community. It’s been months, and most of us assumed the worst, but Continue reading
We didn’t make it to the show for the whole shebang this year, but at least we caught the last day.
Not a lot of Cosplayers were in attendance on Sunday, but there weren’t a lot of attendees period either, which was actually kind of nice. We could walk, talk and breathe without getting tired. It was really nice to be able to stretch out and enjoy a big con for once without the constant bumping and shoving that usually ensues. We met a few awesome people, saw a lot of great art, bought a few good collectables, and managed to snap a few of the cosplayers that were around…which I present to you now: Continue reading
The time is upon us again. The NY Asian Fim Festival kicks off Friday June 27th with over 60 movies this year. There are a lot of great movies playing that I just won’t have time to see. I’ve went through all the trailers and all of the information on the different movies they are showing, and I’ve picked a list of 5 movies that I really want to check out, and so should you.
There were a lot of games announced at E3 this year. One that caught my eye the most was Super Ultra Dead Rising 3 Arcade Remix Hyper Edition DX Plus Alpha (SUDR3) . . . now say that 3 times fast. The amazing thing is that Capcom was able to keep it under their hat, and release it the day of E3.
SUDR3 is a DLC add-on for Dead Rising 3 that adds several characters from Capcom’s other game franchises into Dead Rising 3 . . . sort of. What’s actually happening is that the 4 main characters from the Dead Rising series have broken into a costume store and are cosplaying as these other characters. While they are cosplaying, they can pull off that characters moves. As an example, while Nick is cosplaying as Ryu from the Street Fighter franchise, he gains the ability to throw fireballs. This whole thing sounds awesome, but it isn’t without its flaws.
Man I loved those Choose Your Own Adventure books. They were like the gateway drug into Role Playing Games. When you’re the weird loner kid in grade-school, you haven’t quite gotten the confidence yet to bond with the other weird loner kids. So what did you do? You found other RPGs to play yourself, like the Lone Wolf books (still some of my favorites) and of course, Steve Jackson’s (the OG SJ, co-founder of Games Workshop and Lionhead Studios) SORCERY! series.
These days, most of these books are rather hard to find. The few out there who have decent copies are hesitant to part with them at any price. Who could blame them? These were better than solitaire!
Now, thanks to Steve Jackson himself, and Inkle Studios, we can relive the original SORCERY! series on Android and iOS devices!!
The Sorcery! gamebook series was an epic project which took up a significant portion of my life between 1983-1985. I have always wanted it to be brought up to date with 21st Century technology. But only with the right developer. In entrusting Sorcery! digital future to inkle I am confident they will not only be able to convert the original adventure faithfully to digital formats but also that they will take it beyond the original into new realms. Those who have seen their re-working of the Frankenstein story will know what I mean. This is not just a straight translation of the original books to iOS. This will be a brand new Sorcery! experience.
