Avoiding Clive Barker’s Jericho

October 4, 2007

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:


Halo 3’s Museum of Humanity

September 24, 2007

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:

The Best Damn Pet Shop IN TOWN!

September 8, 2007

“What kind of pet shop is filled with rambunctious yahoos and hot jazz music at 1am?”

From one of my favorite simpsons episodes, “Homer vs. the 18th Amendment “.

What can I say about a game with such a superb narrative that I won’t be able to play until I get an intel-based mac or an Xbox 360 (They will be mine. Oh yes. They will be mine.)? I saw the trailer for it a few weeks ago and was so blown away by it, that I did all I could to find some info on it. After all, how many games are there where you WILLINGLY inject gene splicing serum in you so you can freeze, burn, or electrocute the broken and mutated residents of an underwater metropolis that would make Ayn Rand happy to live in?

America vs. PORNOGRAPHY!!

August 8, 2007

“Perversion for Profit” is a 1965 anti-pornography propaganda film that I think didn’t acomplish the desired effect by showing all the different TYPES of pornography out there (BDSM, leather fetish, foot fetish, trans, gay, lesbian, communism, etc.). All that can be seen in the film is pictures with butt cracks and eyes blocked out with a purple line while George Putnam talks about the dangers of perverts.

Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to watch a German woman ride her boyfriend around their bathroom for six minutes.
