Video games have been blamed for a lot. Murder, shootings, car theft. You name it, people have blamed it on games. This is a new one.

You got District 9 in my God of War 3! You got God of War 3 in my District 9!

October 28, 2009

d9gow3I know the title makes this combination seem like a strange crossover game or movie, in a perfect world this would be true, and awesome. Instead we live in the crappy real world where our game characters can’t beat up on movie characters.

Mad Max: Fury Road News

October 28, 2009

I’ll just let the director, George Miller, do the talking. He seems to be doing a lot of casting work, and getting things ready for filming. I’m glad he’s taking the movie seriously and putting some effort into it.

The movie has a $100 Million budget and will be shooting in various locations in Australia.

 

Zombie punched in Iowa while ordering food?

October 28, 2009

Some more zombie news for you all. A man in Iowa was punched in the face while ordering food. Why does this involve zombies?

The man that was punched was called a zombie by another man, then hit in the face. The Zombie-ish victim tried to call the police on his cell phone, but was hit again resulting in a broken nose.

The man then ran out the back door of the restaurant, and the victim was taken to the hospital.

While I want to award the puncher for his quick action in taking down a zombie, he also gets a demerit cause the “zombie” spoke to him. Zombie’s can’t talk, nor do they order food. Unless the moans for flesh and brains is them placing an order…

Zombies invade Monroeville Mall

October 25, 2009

Whoa whoa whoa..Calm down, put the shotgun away. Zombies didn’t really invade a mall, at least not real zombies. On October 11th a group of 2,000 people dressed as zombies and “invaded” Monroeville Mall.

This hoard of the undead shambled through the mall George A. Romero used for his zombie tale Dawn of the Dead. For other zombie fans, that mall is not just a shopping center, but a cultural icon.

The Wall Street Journal has a write up of the event along with a great gallery of images from the invasion.

Blomkamp working on new Sci-Fi movie

October 25, 2009

With the huge success from District 9, another production company has given Blomkamp another shot at the screen. Media Rights Capital is committed to another Blomkamp movie for 2012.

This new movie is NOT a D9 sequel. This project is a standalone piece, but the sequel will be the next thing the director/writer works on.

Personal Note: Is Nick running the show?

October 23, 2009

A lot of stuff has been going on recently. School has doubled if not tripled its work load on me. So trying to juggle employment and school work, along with this shining beacon of internet goodness, is a difficult task. Also doesn’t help that Borderlands has completely taken over my gaming life.

So where is everyone else? Haven’t seen anything from the other writers here in a month! A MONTH! Not sure what’s going on there. I will continue the postifications as long as you guys keep reading.

Unrelated note, Today is my birthday! Huzzah!

Japan gets 7 layer Whopper, heart attacks soon to skyrocket…

October 23, 2009

I’m the only non-vegan/vegetarian writer on Stuff, but even this is too much for me…

Burger King has introduced a 7 patty thick Whopper. The catch is, it’s only available in Japan. How long it will take for Japan to become the fattest nation ever is still unknown.

The massive coronary has been on sale for a couple days now, costing about $16 USD. The total calorie count is 2,120, more than you should ingest in one day.

Good luck Japan…I don’t think even Godzilla could take one of these monsters and survive.
