VGR Colonial Marines


That's it, man. Game over, man. Game over.

#Gaming NEWS! New Arkham Knight trailer

Are you hyped for Batman: Arkham Knight?

To be honest, I wasn't much really. That might just be because I don't have a "next gen" system yet. But this new trailer looks quite promising, it shows Catwoman, Robin and Nightwing back, directly implicated into the main storyline this team and not just the challenge maps. Plus there's a whole new gameplay element allowing you to jump from a character to another:



I kinda fear the game's adding way too many new features, they might not polish everything at this rate. (What with the playable Batmobile, etc.)

Anyone else find this awful new Robin design way too reminiscent of Chris O’Donnell Robin in Batman Forever or is it just me?? And what's with Nightwing's huge domino mask? At least it's not the ugly New 52 red one...

Where's Batgirl though? And I know Babs' Oracle in this game, but why not use Cassandra Cain, she would be perfect in this universe!!!

Sad #Gaming NEWS! Silent Hills no more

About time I wrote this - Did you folks heard about Kojima being fired from Konami? Of course you heard that.

What a sad day it is. I mean, over the last few years, all my favorite gaming studios have either closed down (Neversoft, SNK..), been shut down (LucasArts, Sierra), forced to go under restructuration under new publishers (Sega-Sammy..) and basically been turned into something completely different from their former self (Capcom, and now Konami).

A lot of my favorite creators have left their respective studios (mostly at Capcom) to go form their own independent studios (those same guys now mostly at Platinum Games, Suda and his Grasshopper team, Yuji Naka with Prope, etc.).

But firing the guy that is sole responsible for the Metal Gear/Solid series? I'm not a big fan of the series, to be honest (to each their own), but even so I gotta recognize - you don't fire the creative mind behind the MGS series! Come on!


Anyways, this post was about Silent Hill. Obviously Del Toro and Norman Reedus finally confirmed the whole thing was not gonna happen. And now Konami confirmed the project is no more.

Silent Hills is dead.

I wasn't entirely fan of the idea, but it sounded like an original way to bring the series back to attention. And maybe it would be the best thing to happen to SH in ages. Apparently Konami will still continue to develop their own new SH games, but just not that one.

Aww...

Anyway, everyone who has access to the PSN should take this occasion to grab a copy of P.T. before it's too late.

Now that this is over, I would really like to see the franchise back in the hands of Team Silent. Or just get Climax back, they did great work on the few couple of games they did.

#Randomz - Jackie Chan - How to Do Action Comedy

A link my brother sent me about Jackie Chan films (and the different between his Hong Kong material and his Hollywood career):



"Some filmmakers can do action. Others can do comedy. But for 40 years, the master of combining them has been Jackie Chan. Let’s see how he does it."


Great stuff.

#MusicBOX - Dionysos - Song for jedi...

Here's an old school French music hit. Yes, it's partly in English, just for fun. Don't read too much into it, itt's just a fun catchy song from way back when:



And, yes. It has absolutely nothing to do with Star Wars.
