No evil shall escape my sight

Let those who worship evil’s might

Beware my power, Green Lantern’s light!

Green Lantern is coming to space sector 2814 this coming 2011.

On a side note, for those of you who are not aware. There is actually a self-titled animated film for Green Lantern. It follows the origins of Hal Jordan and his rise to becoming, perhaps the most powerful Green Lantern the Universe has ever seen. This is of course to sate your appetite before the live-action movie starring Ryan Reynold’s as Hal comes to the big screens.

Did I mention that in Green Lantern: First Flight, the voice actress for Boodikka is none other then the super awesome, super amazing and super hot Tricia Helfer! I SO WANT TO MEET HER IN COMIC CON!

Pardon that outburst, I digress. Those of you who follow the Green Lantern comics will realize that the storyline of First Flight is quite different from the one in the comics, personally, I thought that they should have just stuck to the original but that would effectively double the length of the film I guess. Anyway you can also read the interview with Tricia Helfer on First Flight on this link.


Diablo III: The Hunter or the Hunted?


Those who have been keeping tabs on Blizzard‘s next big game would have known of this, for the rest of the ignorant populace. Let the most benevolent Elydis introduce to you the latest and last class to join the array of classes in Diablo III. The Demon Hunter.

Dual wielding crossbows and demonic powers, the Demon Hunters have sworn their lives to the destruction of the demonic host from the Burning Hells.

Well, in all honesty after watching that trailer. I could not stop the twitch in my left eye. I like to point out that the Demon Hunter is wielding a simple hand crossbow but it is very clear that the crossbow is a repeater crossbow. How can the crossbow fire so many shots so rapidly. Impossible! But then the Demon Hunter class do look pretty badass, do not really like the new look for the demons though. Kinda too clean in my opinion.


Dragon Age Animated Film


Yes, I am not shitting you. BioWare has signed a deal with the FUNimation to do an animated feature film for Dragon Age. I am seriously psyched about this development you can check out the article here. I used to be a pretty hardcore anime fan, toned down since but hell this is exciting news! Gotham Knight, AniMatrix, Halo: Legends they were good shit and I am praying this will be good too.

 

An anime version of a Krogan I spy!

With Mass Effect live-action movie in production and the animated film for Dragon Age coming up, life is good. BioWare, you are a marketing and branding god and I fucking love you guys for the games you make. I am so excited I can hardly keep still! BioWare, I thank you for making this 4 years of gaming so fucking awesome!

Video Games get *Porn* Star Power! (NSFW)


In recent months there has been a spate of porn stars popping up all over video game events. Popping, poor choice of words het het het. Yes ignoring that glaringly obvious attempt at sexual innuendos it is a trend I’m starting to see. So yes, in E3 who do we was one of Codemaster’s Dirt 2 Booth Babe? Why it was none other than Bobbi Starr.

Yes. Some of you my viewers with blood most hot might be familiar with her works *ahem*.  But interestingly, she was quite the gamer herself or so she says. She even played WoW back in the old days. You can read more at Kotaku over at this hyperlink.

I’m sure some of you peeps might have heard or even played of Just Dance. Honestly I haven’t, but apparently Sasha Grey has! Yes, I am speaking of none other than the very outspoken and very real Sasha Grey. She recently appeared at the Hollywood launch party for Just Dance 2 and boy does she remind me of Coraline. If I had to say why, it would be most likely due to the slight tilt to the lips and a very similar hair style.

Personally, I really like Sasha Grey‘s works *ahem* and she also seems like a very intelligent and witty young lady. She is extremely outspoken about issues like sex and feminism which is quite refreshing cause it really takes a lot of proverbial balls to do what she does. People are judgmental and self-righteous by nature, that is how we are, and it is really ballsy to just go “I don’t give a fuck” to the whole world and do what you want. She has earned my respect in some sense and gratuitous amounts of fantasizing as well. Het Het Het.

Well since we are on the topic of porno, I’ve recently found several batman porn spoofs and they are surprisingly high in production quality. Here are some links for all ye man with blood most hot.  Batman XXX and Batxxx: The Dark Knight.


Mass Effect: Retribution


Yes, folks! I am back from my 3 week hiatus down in… well down under. Spent a good 2 weeks and then some, out in the field doing mandatory military training.  But now it is all over! Just waiting for the home stretch before I leave active service and rejoin the civilian populace and hopefully land a job overseas.

Anyhow, to kick things off, I’ve been reading Mass Effect: Retribution. The story takes place roughly between Commander Shepard’s first foray into the Collector ship and the end of Mass Effect 2.  The book makes multiple reference to Mass Effect: Revelations and Mass Effect: Ascension which preludes the original Mass Effect 1.

Familiar cast like Aria T’Loak, Paul Grayson, Kahlee Sanders and David Anderson play an important role in the novel. Essentially, the Illusive Man has managed to obtain Reaper technology, thanks in part to the operations of Commander Shepard. For those who have read Ascension, you would know about the animosity between Grayson and the Illusive Man. It comes as no surprise when the Illusive Man has Grayson captured and injected with Reaper nanites to observe the effects of Reaper transmogrification.

All in all, it was a pretty solid read. It gives a whole new dimension to the Illusive Man, Aria and the insidious nature of Reaper indoctrination and transformation. The romantic implications of Kahlee and Anderson from Revelations has also finally gotten some closure. I would definetly recommend this book to all the Mass Effect fans out there.
