Yes, I'm back with another hybrid of horror and nerd-ism! And this one made me cream my jeans!
If you're like me, and had been putting off buying the latest Mortal Kombat, you may want to go get your wallet: Freddy Krueger has been announced a downloadable fighter - and he has some of the best fatalities I've seen. This is awesome. Rumor has it, that if enough sales are generated from this, they'll look into adding more playable horror characters.
If you're like me and had a Super Nintendo or Sega Genesis then when you were a kid then you probably owned the game "Zombies Ate My Neighbors". So you're going to be super excited that there's going to be a movie made out of the game. You're then going to also think back to how you were overweight, had acne, wore way too many Metallica t-shirts and couldn't get a girlfriend until college. It's OK to cry, I am.
For those of you giddy about "The Walking Dead" then you're probably going to waddle your chubby ass to the store on march 8th when Season 1 hits DVD and Blu-Ray. Well put down the McRib fat ass and enjoy this new DVD trailer in honor of the release. I have no idea why I'm calling everyone fat, I've run out of other sarcastic things.
If there's one thing that's a good time it's making fun of people who World of Warcraft, sorry Erin. But now Undead Labs has teamed up with Microsoft to build a new zombie franchise game that will be available on Xbox Live for the Xbox 360. The game will allow gamers to play out their sickest fantasies of what they would do in a zombie apocalypse. They're currently calling the game "Class3" but I assume that will change by the time it comes out.
As much as it pains me to keep talking about "Drive Angry" I just can't stop. Here's a new NSFW video for the film that literary has a half a second shot of boobs for no reason whatsoever other than to make it a NSFW clip. "Not Safe For Work"? More like "No Stupid Freakin Way"! I'm still working on it.
In Real People News:
Aliens have invaded Jerusalem my friends, get your guns and prepare for the intergalactic war. Video has popped up on the tubes of what some are calling a spaceship coming down and hovering over a temple in the holy land. But let's not think about it, there's video on the internet, that's proof enough for me to demand we launch the missiles.
My favorite part of Valentines Day? And I only say this in the hopes my wife is reading this, but those tiny little heart shaped candies with adorable messages on them. They're so tasty! But I never got one like this girl in Califnornia who picked a winner that said "Nice Tits". That's a keeper, you don't just eat a message like that.
OHNOYOHBOYOHBOYOHBOY!!! It's almost time for Halloween!!!!!!
So if you're looking to kill some time, and for some reason HAVEN'T played the original Dead Rising - now's the time. Dead Rising 2 was just released, and Amazon slashed the price of the original to $10!!! And I bet if you looked, you could probably find it even cheaper used. Unfortunately, I think the original was only available on the XBOX360.
If there is one thing I've been infatuated with over the years as much as horror, it's video games. From the early days of the Atari 2600 up until the XBOX 360, if I haven't owned one of the consoles out there, I've laid my hands on them at least once. Many hours have been whittled away staring at the TV screen with controller in hand, taking away from the time I had to watch my precious horror movies. Thankfully, there have always been a few horror video games out there to cover both bases!
However strange it may seem, Late Night with Jimmy Fallon has been the go-to place for video game content on the late night scene. Keeping with that theme last night, he debuted this "Bioshock 2" launch trailer, which lays a basic stage for the game.
I don't understand one word in the "Dead Rising" trailer, well other than when they say "Dead Rising" but the rest is completely lost on me. What I do know is that the film is based on the much loved video game and it'll be hitting Xbox 360's marketplace sometime in the near future. I have no idea what language the final product will be in but from the looks of things a terrible voiceover isn't really going to hurt anything.
I've fallen out of the loop on the whole "Alien Vs. Predator" movie craze but apparently they haven't been very good. The video game coming out on March 31st though looks good, very good even. I could use a little more game play footage and a ton more Jesse The Body but from the looks of things you can be all bad ass and kill the crap out of humans. Dreams do come true. Check the video out below and pick up your copy for the Xbox 360, Playstation 3, and Windows PC in March.
It was recently announced that the "Aliens vs Predator" reboot for PC, Xbox 360, and PS3, will in fact no longer be banned in Australia, and will appear on shelves uncut, contrary to previous speculation. It was also announced that it will carry an MA15+ rating, prohibiting anyone under the age of 15 from purchasing the game. Although this is seen as a victory for the gaming community, it has left some people wondering whether there should be a steeper rating category than MA15+, which is currently the country's highest rating before refusing to sell a game altogether.
