Inception teaser trailer

In my opinion this is a near perfect teaser trailer, it gives you just enough visually to make you hungry for more with deep reverberating BGM that exemplifies the mysterious nature of Nolans new film.
"Your mind is the scene of the crime"
I'm in I love a good mind fuck movie, bring it on Nolan!

Walmart: Always low expectations...always!

Some folks love Walmart for it always low prices and "all-in-one" shopping convienence, some folks don't like Walmart for what it's doing to mom and pop companies around the country. I HATE Walmart, I trully loathe the place, not for what it's doing to small businesses (even though that sucks) but for the absolute dregs of society that not only "shop" there but work there too! The Walmart on Old Country Rd on Long Island is home to the STUPIDEST, RUDEST and MOST UNEDUCATED slobs I've ever come in contact with, so it is with great pleasure I share with you . If you find yourself in a Walmart surrounded by these rejects of the special olympics please snap a pic and send it to!

Adolph Hitler chimes in on Avatar Trailer

Glad to know I wasn't the only one totally underwhelmed by the Avatar trailer! I don't wanna say great minds think alike but I gotta agree with the Fuhrer....Avatar is looking pretty meh right now. Yet another Mega Director ensnared by the powah of digital and blue screen.

Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 Boxart

Apparently some fans were none too pleased with the Modern Warfare2 box art that Activision originally unleashed upon the masses. So they threw their artistist into a room with some zombie nazi's and the the results seemed to please the masses...Thank God because this could've escalated into a global crisis!

New and improved

Wolfman Trailer

Let me start by saying I'm more of a Vampire guy, never was into the Lycan's that much, perhaps due to Monster Squad. I mean how could you root for a monster that's got no nuts!? Lately the Vampire mystique has been overexposed and franky portrayed in the most rediculous light (pun intended).
Now my friend Krogenar over at Buried Planet, he's a conessuier of Werewolf films so he'll be at the first show for this flick. Wolfman looks promising and the transformation CGI looks surprisingly good....which is my biggest pet peev with Lycan movies....most of the time the transformation looks terrible or you get the ol cut away/cut back technique....LAME!
The cast is pretty impressive also, Benicio Del Toro, Anthony Hopkins, and Hugo Weaving...not bad. If I had to choose between this and that new Twilight movie I'll see you at Wolfman!

Avatar Teaser Trailer

I'm really impressed with how Cameron has put the kabash on ant leaked footage, images and leaked spoilers for Avatar. In todays day and age that's very difficult, this information blackout has built up a tremendous curiousity amoungst those who even know about Avatar. After watching the teaser trailer I have to admit, I may have been expecting something more in tune with Aliens or Terminator. I didn't get that vibe after watching the teaser. The environments look pretty impressive but I also felt like I was watching extended footage from the Star Wars prequels.For some odd reason when I saw the Navi I instantly thought of the Dark Crystal, I don't know why. I'm sure I'll be there opening night December 18th.
For those not in the know...

“Avatar is the story of an ex-Marine who finds himself thrust into hostilities on an alien planet filled with exotic life forms. As an Avatar, a human mind in an alien body, he finds himself torn between two worlds, in a desperate fight for his own survival and that of the indigenous people. More than 10 years in the making, “Avatar” marks Cameron’s return to feature directing since helming 1997’s “Titanic,” the highest grossing film of all time and winner of 11 Oscars including best picture. WETA Digital, renowned for its work in “The Lord of the Rings” trilogy and “King Kong,” will incorporate new intuitive CGI technologies to transform the environments and characters into photorealistic 3-D imagery that will transport the audience into the alien world rich with imaginative vistas, creatures and characters.”

District 9 Review

If we learned one thing this summer it's bigger isn't always better. Terminator Salvation had the right mood but lacked any humanity and Transformers: RotF was an epic failure in my opinion that was nice to look at but that's it.
Who really cared about John Connor or Optimus Prime and Sam Witwiki? I certainly didn't, that was one of the major problems with them, Terminator and Transformers had no way for the audience to connect emotionally with the characters...because the characters took second billing to the special effects and explosions.
District 9 is the story of Wikus van der Merwe (Sharlto Copley), and Christopher Johnson, one of the 1.8 million displaced alien refugees segregated from Humanity in a section of Johannesburg known as District-9.
The movie begins as a documenary style film with Wikus' co-workers discussing the events surrounding D-9 and Wikus. At the same time we learn that MNU is gearing up to undertake a massive mission of relocating all the aliens "prawns" to a new location (District 10). When we first meet Wikus he's an extremeably likeable person who appears to trully enjoy his job in MNU and is very knowledgable of the alien refugees and their plight. When he is choosen as the head liason in MNU's Alien relocation program he is genuinely surprised, much like many of his coworkers. MNU hires a PMC to assist Wikus and his team while they enter D-9 to serve eviction notices. It's during this point in the film that Wikus trully shows how knowledgeable he is as well as how naive he is to the world around him.
As the operation begins we follow Wikus as he goes door to door serving the aliens notice in a "live at the scene" style, the audience is visually bombarded by scenes of extreme poverty and substandard living conditions....even for space lobsters!
Throughout the day Wikus remains cheery like a child in a toy store despite the dangers surrounding him. At this point Wikus crosses paths with two aliens, that will forever change his life forever....or at least 3 years >.-
In the interest of not spoiling the movie that is as far as I'll go with the synopsis.
For me the best Science Fiction always has real people in familiar situations which are surrounded by science and technology that feels believeable and attainable within our lifetime with a dash of the fantastic but not enough where you are forced to blindly accept the rediculous. A perfect example of this is Gore Verbinski's Gatacca, that was and still is one of my favorite Sci Fi movies.
District 9 takes a simple man who doesn't standout and thru a fantastic series of events becomes the most controversial human being on Earth. I cannot praise this Sci-Fi masterpiece enough, with all the overhyped crap that's been forced on us this summer, Neill Blomkamp and Peter Jackson have successfully taken events in human history such as the apartheid (district 6) and infused them with aliens that are not only original and visually impressive but aliens you cared for! Hard to believe...I know! Imagine that, a science fiction movie that puts charcters and story above special effects and s'plosions...I know that's crazy talk!
Now don't get me wrong the CGI space lobsters were total eye candy but besides that you felt for them, you wanted to see Christopher Johnson (welcome to Earth we can't be bothered trying to figure out your name so here's your new Earth name) and his son get to the mothership and escape the hellish situation they were stuck in in D-9. The CGI mecha and space lobster weapons were also nutrasweet! The last 30 minutes has some of the most impressive live action mecha battle scenes I've seen...better than The Matrix in my opinion.
Sharlto Copley did an astounding job, as a relative unknown (for me at least) he totally impressed me with the full spectrum of emotions he conveyed and was able to bring out in the audience. And once again the teams at Weta really brought top quality CGI to the screen, the scene with Christopher and his son aboard the shuttle craft returning to the mothership was full of so much emotion...a perfect example of CGI used properly!
I will definately be getting this movie once it comes out on Blu Ray! District 9 is the Sci Fi movie of 2009 as far as I'm concerned. This movie is worth the price of admission go see it tonight.

PS3 Slim Rumor Control, Here Are the Facts

Guten tag! Greetings from the Vaderlaand Gamescom is in full swing in Cologne and Sony has finally confirmed what we all knew for a couple months, the PS3 was getting the ol' pricen de slashen! And that PS slim has finally been revealed....Mucho Grasias South America! Sony has made the PS3 smaller, better, quieter, and more energy efficient and all this could be your's for the fantastic price of $299.99. The PS2 backwards compatiblitity is gone for good I'm afraid but most people still have one anyway.

Check out this handy dandy chart to compare the SlimStation3 to it's peers...

After 3 years the PS3 may actually become a finacially competative console! Not that it matters to me, I held out one year after initial launch and snaged a 80 gig backwards compatible version (via emulation).

FFXIV update

According to the article, there are four categories of jobs right now Fighter, Sorcerer, Crafter and Gatherer.
Two jobs have been unveiled for each.
Fighter: Swordsman, Archer
Sorcerer: Enchanter, Warlock
Crafter: Blacksmith, Cook
Gatherer: Gardener, Fisherman
Hyuran (hume)The Hyuran are said to be the most prolific race of all Eorzea. The article mentions that they migrated to Eorzea in large number from neighboring islands and continents. They brought with them great technology and innovation that raised the civilization of Eorzea to new heights. Having immigrated from a variety of lands there is great diversity to be found amongst the Hyuran in terms of language and culture. The two main classifications of Hyuran are "Midlanders" who migrated to lower areas of Eorzea, and the "Highlanders" who migrated into the hills and mountains.
Elzen (Elvaan) The Elzen are the anscestral race of Eorzea, and have clashed with the Hyuran in the past to defend their homeland.
Lalafell (taru) They are a race of farmers who live mainly near the Southern Sea. They also boast an exceptional degree of intelligence.
Roegadyn (galka) The Roegadyn are a muscular race of fishermen that live near the Northern Sea. It appears that some work as hired mercenaries or bodyguards, but others lead a less noble life as pirates.
Miqo'te (Mithra) Miqo'te are cat-like people who are again known as fierce hunters. They are mainly separated into "Sunseekers" and "Moonkeepers," the latter of which are nocturnal. Together, the Miqo'te are a minority race in the land of Eorzea.
Other Noteworthy info from the article:
* The difference in ability between races is said to be less severe than that of Final Fantasy XI
* Battles progress in real-time, but are not action-oriented, i.e. There is more to consider during battle that simply targeting the enemy and wailing away on it
* The Armory System allows for job changing anywhere, so inventory space is of great importance. Therefore, ways to change armor quickly and easily are being considered
* Currently investigating whether to allow all skills to be mastered, or have a see-saw style system like crafting in Final Fantasy XI
* "Guild Leave" will be a system of quests that include monster hunting, skilling up and a myriad of other activities. Players will obtain items to allow them to travel instantly to their required destination. There seems to be a lot about this system in the article as well, but we'll save that until it's fully visible.
* There will be weather effects and night/day transitions. One game day is one Earth hour.
* Final Fantasy XIV will be casual enough that even playing one hour a day is sufficient to enjoy the game.
* The game currency will be gil
Regions of Eorza
Uldaha: the desert,
Gridania:the forest
Rimsa-Rominsa:the seaside.
FFXIV Game system:
Armory System depending on a character's equipment dictates play style. Changing equipment is executed in real time. For example, if you're invited to join a team of warriors to fight the enemies, you only need to wear the corresponding equipment to be ready. Once the party disbanded, you only need to change equipment to come back as a crafter, fisherman, etc.This freedom will make the solo play easier since a warrior who wants to be cured can change into a healer himself. It's crucial to maintain a good balance of equipment to "level up" easier and be less reliant on other party members.
Guilds delivers licences/permits to players.
Permits match with the missions the character needs to fulfill.
The players will be able to share these permits and even decide on the number of persons who can participate in the mission.
Missions/ quests will be irrevelant to the level of each players but some permits can't be obtained before a definite level.
Missions/Quests can take up to or more than 30min to be fulfilled.
Players can carry several permits at the same time.
Missions will have different and various goals: monster hunting, enemies' raid, skill ups... These operations are called "etherites" and will allow you to be instantly teleported to the specified area.

Fat Princess Review

Fat Princess is now available on the PSN exclusively, go buy it!
Underneath it's adorable super deformed characters there's a very well designed strategy game! Teamwork is essential to winning, 2 teams of up to 16 players each must make there way across battlefields to the opposing teams castle and rescue their princess while keeping the other teams princess imprisoned (capture the flag). Once one team has both a count down begins and if they can hold on to both for the duration that team will be victorious! Fat Princesses has 5 classes for players to choose from; Warrior, Worker, Mage, Priest, and Ranger. Each class offers unique benefits and each class can be upgraded. Most people will want to grab a Warrior hat and run headfirst into battle to save the princess, but remember that sometimes the best offense is a good defence. Worker may seem like a drag but it may actually be the most critical character early on in the battle. Workers will build the castle doors and harvest the natural resources needed to upgrade the 5 classes as well as build castle upgrades such as catapults. There are outposts spread throughout the land that if occupied can help turn the tide of battle, outposts serve as a base to heal players and workers can deposit resources (wood and ore) to build up your teams stockpile. Each class requires a certain amount of wood and ore before the worker can upgrade the class or castle structure, once the required resources are collected a worker will begin building. Warrior, as is always the case, carries a large sword and hits hard if you can get within striking range, Mage casts fire spells and when upgraded can cast ice spells, Ranger carries a bow and upgrades to a rifle, great at long distance but your toast if a warrior get up close and personal, and lastly is Priest, the healer who can be upgraded to Dark Mage.
The game oozes with charm and pure fun, from the adorable voices of the warriors to the voice actor (sounds like the same person who did Disney's Beauty and the Beast) who does the games monologue as well as the play by plays to the Princesses begging for cake.
Speaking of cake, that must be one delicious cake and the princess has one serious sweet tooth which adds another strategy to the game, feed your prisoner enough cake and she gets fat....really fat. So fat you will need more than teammate to carry her back to the castle, which adds to the team work aspect of the game.
If your looking for some delicious medieval fun with tons of calories and a low price you can't go wrong with this PSN exclusive title. It's only $14.99 on the PlayStation Store go grab it'll have a hard time putting it down! The icing on the cake (get it?) is the song chosen for the end credits! Pure genius!
