Head Shot

What does a head-shot sound like?

Dead Island

As far as Zombie games go, they spill out almost as frequently as zombie movies. I've watched a lot of zombie movies and god help me I've played a shizz load of zombie games.

As fas as my favourite zombie game goes, I think it would have to be the original Resident Evil games, especially part 2. I spent hours playing that monster. In fact when I first got it on the PS1 I didn't have a memory card, so I got insanely good at it.

Resident Evil 2

As far as more recent games go I'd say Left4Dead would be the best zombie title for me, especially part 2 with the added atmosphere. Sure the game play isn't as extensive as say Dead Rising, but I fell in love with the undead through the blood and gore action of the movies, and that's what Left4Dead has in bucket loads. Dead Rising1 was a must have for me, but by the time I got to Dead Rising 2 I felt the series had become too satirical.

Well enter Dead Island... now this baby looks interesting. I'm not totally sold on the graphics on a shot by shot basis, but as a whole the setting looks pretty mad.It feels like it could sit somewhere between Dead Rising and Left4Dead. In the most basic sense of this, it looks to combine the first person zombie action with undead adventuring. Plus living in Fiji, messing up zombies on a tropical island is something I dream of everyday.

Check out this video on Dead Island, it has 11 mins of game footage with some narration by the develops, and it looks pretty interesting. The game looks like it could do with a few animation and graphic tweaks here and there, but otherwise... I'm sold.

Witcher 2 is out!

So Witcher 2 has been released. Now I need to sell some souls so that I can afford to pick it up.

And then?

I know my updates for the blog haven't been as frequent as I'd like, but I have very good excuses as to why that is.

First off as you know I've been attending film school these last few months, so most of the time when I come home I just feel too damn tired to do anything that involves coordinated button sequences and lateral thinking.

Except maybe video games, I did spend all of last week playing Dragon Age 2, which although entertaining, was pretty lacking when compared to the master-piece that was Dragon Age 1. Portal 2 was pretty sweet, loved every moment of that one...

Now I'm waiting to get my hands on The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings, that's probably my most anticipated game title this year, well that and Dead Space 2 which I still haven't got my hands on because I've been dead broke these last few weeks. (I got DA2 and Portal 2 off of friends)

While I waiting for Witcher2 I've been mucking around with this little side-scroller called Capsized. It's a pretty little time filler, though it takes a messy time to get used to the controls.

I've also started pre-production on a small horror short that I'm doing with my friends. I don't want to give away too much about it... but it's a small sci-fi horror film which involves lots of blood and gore.

Actually that gives nothing away... well I'll post stuff on it as it comes along. But I don't really wanna share anything short of the whole thing. So that's something to look forward to. But here's a little something:

What else?

O if you saw the previous post then you should have a fare idea what I'm planning to do with those darn bears I came up with a few weeks back.

Think famous horror movie scenes... but... with bears!

I've been doing a lot of reading these past few weeks too, but none of it's horror related so I feel like I shouldn't talk about it here. But then I have had non- horror posts before... so...

Well I've been reading a lot of stuff on Vietnam. I'm not sure why or how but a few months ago I got Nam crazy and started eating up anything to do with the war I could find. Books, movies and documentaries... I've collected heaps. Some where in there I got mad about Hunter S. Thompson too, so I started watching a lot of stuff on him, as well as reading as much of his work as I could find.

... again, not horror related.

But sill awesome stuff.

As part of film school I've been watching a lot of movies too. At first I kind of tracked away from the usual stuff I like watching. I started getting my hands on films that are known for stuff like 'awesome editing' or 'great screen play.' Somewhere in that mess of movies I found a whole lot of David Lynch stuff... and soon I was back to watching my favourites: good ol' horror movies.

That would have probably been the majority of my last few months. Trying to watch as many good horror movies as I could find. I watched a shizz load of em... but I found myself kind of watching the same ones over and over again. The thing with me is, I'd rather watch an old horror movie that I know is awesome... than risk watching something new that's shit. Thank god I have the Horror Club to help me sort through em.

Shit this post is getting long... I know most of you savages aren't even going to read it. So Ima head off now and watch a bit Adventure Time before rushing off to see if my friends are up for some beers.
