RIP Gamestation 226

Posted on 25 October 2011 by TH3 No08

 

It seems like only yesterday that i brought you home, all shiny with that new console smell. I had waited a long time to pick you up in the hopes that the price on you would come down but I had a pocket full of money and you looked like a orphaned puppy in need of a new home. I remember the first game we played like it was yesterday. we popped in a fresh copy of GTA IV and set out on a great adventure that I still think about to this day. It was a great first couple of months that turned into a great couple of years. What a ride huh?
Truth be told the real reason I bought you wasn’t the great games you promised but the opportunity to watch movies in HD for the first time. We picked up RAMBO and when we popped it in for the first time we were stunned. The picture was amazing. No more silly compression artifacts or low quality AC3 audio for me! We jumped straight into 720p video and uncompressed audio that damn near blew the windows out with that high bit rate and thunderous low end. (I know, I know, 720p was all my tv could handle at the time but that has since been remedied as I know rock the full 1080p plasma. Trust me the wait was worth it.)
You weren’t just a great console/entertainment center you were also a great friend to my kids who have both grown up playing your awesome games. I still remember the first time my 3 year old son and 6 year old daughter went multi-player on Lego Star Wars. I watched in amazement as they got along and played cooperatively on a video game that was graphically light years ahead of anything I could have imagined just a few years ago. In my children’s short time as video gamers they have experienced gaming opportunities that I never dreamed was possible as a child who grew up playing Super Mario Bros and Zelda on a little 12 inch black and white television.
It seems a bit ironic that you died just a few hours into what was one of the most promising new games I’ve played in a long while. Batman Arkham City was just too much for your little processor/Blu-Ray drive to take. So while I will soon replace you I will not be getting rid of you anytime soon. You have now become a 400+ dollar Netflix player who I hope my children will appreciate and take care of when you move off the big tv and up stairs to one of the kids rooms. In closing I’d like to thank you for the hundreds of hours of entertainment you’ve provided my kids and I over the last few years and I look forward to your shiny new replacement who may take your place on my entertainment console, but will never take your place in my heart.

RIP Gamestation 226, The best console a boy could have ever hoped for.

Red State trailer hits the interwebz…

Posted on 23 December 2010 by TH3 No08

Kevin Smith hates the press but apparently loves the interwebz cause that’s where he dropped an early teaser for his latest flick “RED STATE”. We’ve discussed on the podcast over the last few months our general feelings regarding this film and his approach to distribution and marketing of it and this trailer doesn’t really change any feelings I have for what he’s trying to do. Smith lists the Weinsteins in the credits (Harvey Boys) so I’m assuming he’s got distribution so we may not be treated to the public spectacle of a post screening auction like he promised but as long as it gets out there I guess that’s really all that matters. The trailer looks interesting, lots of action, creepy looking small town folk, and lots of random gun fire.

The Rango trailer slithers its way onto the interwebs…

Posted on 14 December 2010 by TH3 No08

In a wild west version of our world which just happens to be populated by random english speaking animals, the lizard with the fastest gun is king. That’s the message I take from this awesome trailer for “Rango”, the latest animated tour de force to draw in A list talent. Johnny Depp stars as Rango, a chameleon that aspires to be a swashbuckling hero who finds himself in a Western town plagued by bandits and is forced to literally play the role in order to protect it. This is the first animated feature for special effects company Industrial Light & Magic and they certainly look to have lived up to their potential on this one. You really get the feeling that the various animals exist in some wild west parallel universe and are having the time of their lives shooting it up with bad guys.

An extended look at “HOMEFRONT” the video game…

Posted on 14 December 2010 by TH3 No08

From the writer of Red Dawn and Apocalypse Now comes the story of a fallen America. The year is 2027. The world as we know it is unraveling after fifteen years of economic meltdown and widespread global conflict over dwindling natural resources and America has been take over by The Greater Korean Republic. Sounds like a downer huh? Well this is the part where we pick up our guns, join the resistance and fight back, at least according to the game. The idea of joining the resistance and fighting a common enemy is a theme we’ve seen before from John Milius’s work and I’d be interested to see if he adds anything to the mix we haven’t seen in other games and movies of this ilk. Either way the trailer certainly peaked my interest. Check it out and look for it on shelves in March of 2011.

Heres the official description…
Homefront is set in a near future America in 2027 when a now-nuclear armed Korean People’s Army invades the USA, defeating the United States Army and reducing it to nothing from the superpower it once was. The game is written by John Milius the writer of Apocalypse Now and Red Dawn.
