Modern Warfare 2

This coming Tuesday, life will forever be split into two eras.

The time before Modern Warfare 2. And the time after Modern Warfare 2.

It’s gonna be crazy ;)

The Future of Video Games, today! (again)

Project Natal

Project Natal is Microsoft’s answer to the Wii.

The difference? It looks like it works better. There’s no physical controller per se  as it’s all controlled by camera, your voice and the 4th dimension. Basically your body IS the controller. So if you’re Jimmy No-Limbs then too bad.

6am

Sunday, May 25th, 2008

As a regular reader of my blog you’ve probably gathered that I’m a huge Hobbit & Lord of the Rings fanboy. Well, ladies and gents, after spending $210 dollars on Lord of the Rings DVDs, I decided to up my fanboyness by waking up at 6am and taking part of a live online Hobbit film Q&A with Peter Jackson and Guillermo del Toro.

Imagine trying to read with only 2 hours sleep. That’s right, you can’t. It’s impossible – but I did it. I’m awesome.

Oh, I know this sounds really lame but being in the same chat with them was an out of this world experience – I think there were times when I experienced enlightenment. Not kidding.


That’s right, I was in that chat room biatches!

Anyhow for those readers who care, the transcript with some pictures can be found here.

IT’S OFFICIAL BITCHES! DEL TORO TO DIRECT THE HOBBIT FILMS!

Friday, April 25th, 2008

We’ve been holding onto this hope as if it were the last cloth on our cold naked bodies. Besides Peter Jackson, only Guillermo Del Toro can bring these films to life. Remember when Sam Raimi (Spiderman films) was rumoured to be directing the films? Fuck. Imagine Hobbits going emo and doing broadway numbers in the middle of the film. That’s right. Fuck.

I’ve been hoping one day the story of Genghis Khan would come to the silverscreen since we’ve got all heard the King Arthur, Joan of Arc, and other historical epics.

Well my wish has finally come true!

I would’ve preferred it to be a Ridley Scott production, but oh well…

Scumbag ’07

Saturday, November 3rd, 2007

Great to see my Ninjaman buddies producing some great stuff under their own Subversive Games banner. Coinciding with the elections coming up in a few weeks, Scumbag ’07 is a modified version of an earlier game they made which had our politicians trading insults school yard style.

Lol, a beautiful-looking game dudes. The characters are just too funny.

Ps. I would’ve like it more if the insults were updated as well, maybe some reflecting Howard’s caterpillar eyebrows or K.Rudd’s ear-wax eating habibts.

** update **

I forgot to mention that the game even has it’s own news article. Well done boys!

West Express 2

Saturday, September 8th, 2007

I’ll be showing some art at local youth culture event West Express 2. Which starts from 6:30pm tonight. Which is 1.5 hrs away. Shiet.

Come down for some short films and live music. Oh and Matt Huynh aka Stikman aka that comic book guy will be exhibiting too. And local film maker Tim Ly will also be premiering his More Than Words short film. Fuck, just come down. It’s at the Powerhouse Youth Theatre in Fairfield.

Facebook Video FOR THE WIN

Thursday, September 6th, 2007

Facebook Video is the fucken awethome.

Nevermind that you can upload video, it’s the sheer ease and ability to record video from your webcam and save it directly to Facebook that is so good.

Imagine the fun you can have, especially for those who have a webcam embedded into their monitor and/or laptop.

ZOMG, it’s awethome.
