Short Film Friday: Batman: Strange Days (Dir.: Bruce Timm)

You know the feeling when something in your life is suddenly taken away (a death in the family, a terrible break-up, your favourite cereal being discontinued), and how it can take a long time to get over that loss.

Short Film Friday: The Last Ten (Dir.: David Higgs)

TheLastTen

TheLastTen

Any one who has ever lived in an apartment  building knows the feeling. You walk the hallways and hear the muffled sounds of happiness, anger, sadness, and many more emotions behind the closed doors of every unit. Having no frame of reference, you can never really know what is going on behind those doors. Perhaps, even murder?

That is the core concept behind David Higgs’ short film masterpiece,…

Sessler the Agent

adam-sessler

adam-sesslerLast night I was flipping through my twitter feed and noticed a recurring pattern. Many of the game journos that I follow were all being incredibly nice to game industry vet and host at Rev3 Games, Adam Sessler. Why was this? What had happened? Had he died?

Short Film Friday: HUMAN REVOLUTION - DEUS EX (Dir.: Moe Charif)

Deus-Ex-film-adam

Deus-Ex-film-adamNow I am not one for fan films of the traditional sort. I subscribe to Machinima, and once in a while I will check out the odd short, but more often than not the effects are poor, the story is boring, and the acting is just downright awful. That being said, every so often, a fan film blows me away with the raw talent it presents on screen. That is easily the case with Moe Charif’s Human…

teenage_mutant_ninja_turtles

teenage_mutant_ninja_turtlesMichael Bay, one of the most divisive directors of the modern era, has been pursuing a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles film for quite some time now.

Ryse: Playing With History

ryse-son-of-rome

ryse-son-of-romeIn a medium where anything is possible, why do we rarely play with those pinnacle events from our past?

Why do I play video games? One word: escapism. By escapism, I do not mean the need to remove myself from my everyday doldrums, but more the feeling of transporting my self entirely into an environment that is otherworldly. And in that framework, is there any better medium for escapism than…

TF-Panoramic-OverwatchFor some, this has been less a Titanfall, and more a Titan-stumble

The moment has arrived. Heralded as the true beginning of Next-Gen, Titanfall, the Xbox and PC exclusive, is available in stores and many a gamer has clamored at the chance to play. Only one problem: for some, it appears, they can’t connect to Xbox Live to play the game. Any other game and this wouldn’t be an issue. You can simply…
