Yet Another game to avoid because I will be shrieking like a banshee while hiding underneath a blanket holding my Cthulhu plushie for protection.
Clive Barker’s Jericho certainley seems like an interesting game. Centered around the Jericho Squad, a seven-person squad with unique paranormal talents (exorcism, blood magic, telepathy etc.). Oh yes, and they have lots and lots of guns. They have these guns and these abilities so they can prevent God’s first child (the one before Adam and Eve, Fredrick) from leaking into our world and causing all sorts of horrible shenanigans. Oh and I forgot…they have to fight off lots of scary zombies and ghosts. OooOooOoo…..
The story admittedly seems kind of lame but you can never expect brilliance from a first person shooter (Except of course, Duck Hunt) but it IS Clive Barker so it might end up being amazing. However, despite the possibly good story and what seems like really crisp visuals, I’m not going to go anywhere near it because of the extreme fear I have of waking up unspeakable evils in abandoned caverns. Fictional or not.
Here’s the trailer for it:
One of the things I love more than video games is the trailers that come before them. That said, I’ve just been looking over the ad campaign for Halo 3 and I must say, it’s one HELL of an ad campaign.
The ads focuses on a scaled-down version of one of the battles in Halo 3 that can be found in the fictitious Museum of Humanity. There, Major Pawel Czernek; UNSC, now retired, looks over the model battle and recalls what happened.
“We’d been fighting for a while…on the seventh day we ran out of ammo. We had to scavange all we could from the weapons that had been left behind. The pistols, shotgun rounds, a handful of gernades…”
The three ads that I have found all center around this kind of Remembrance Day theme which is powerful because it stirs something in you and almost inspires you until you realise that it’s all fictional because as cool as it would be, aliens aren’t at war with us.
here are the three ads. The first one is the interview with the retired major, the second is a montage of the carnage, and the third is a documentary on the making of the scaled down model with respect to those fallen:
I love how this video is composed. just one long stream.

So for those of you who don’t know, I’ve had a pretty shitty week. The big part of that week was having to put down my cat Ginger on Thursday. So throughout that half-fortnight of crap, my way of winding down was to watch some South Park. It’s funny and I don’t have to think too much about it which makes it a great show to decompress to. I don’t have the seasons, so I went to allsp.com which has all the episodes and, amazingly enough, updates all the new once rather fast (so far season 11 is doing great).
I know that sites like this are normally supposed to be only linked to from friends over msn or through e-mails or whatever but quite frankly, it’s not as if this blog is the social hub of…well…anything. I’d kind of like it if this blog was a “hub” of some sort. I wouldn’t care of what, just as long as I could say “hub”. Hub hub hub…
Anyways, all episodes of South Park. Here it is: http://allsp.com
