Lethal Enforcer

Short and sweet for today's post becuase I have absolutely no content to fall back on and I just thought this would be a bit of a refresher for anyone tired of long posts. Having said that, here's a very condensed version of everything that mattered to me this past week.

------------


METSU HADOUUUUUKEN!

Notice anything different with the blog? How about a new banner and some much needed colour! In light of my recent "Super Street Fighter 4" obsession, I decided to draw myself trying to imitate SSF4's leading man, Ryu's signature move, the Hadouken. I like what I've done, though I probably could've done without all the health bars and such as they do make the overall image a bit too busy. But yes, a much needed change indeed.

I decided to jump on the Formspring bandwagon and created an account. I doubt it's going to last for very long but if I'm wrong about that then I'll probably keep it for a while. For those of you who wanna ask me anything (nothing stupid, please), visit "formspring.me/zombiegoo" to check out my Formspring. Alternatively, you can ask me a question on the sidebar to the right.

I bought "Borderlands" this week and it's a very awesome game! I'm surprised that some of my friends don't like this game very much because I would've thought this was the type of game that was perfect for them - a hybrid between RPG (role playing game) games and FPS (first person shooter) games. I'm playing the game in split-screen co-op with a friend at the moment and it's been a real blast (pun intended). The missions/quests are fun and looting is an absolute joy. Oh how I love looting from dead enemies.

Can you say awesome? There will be two newly unveiled covers for next month's issue of "GameInformer" is nothing short of brilliant. It's not even the fact that Batman is featured on the cover, it's the fact that the whiteness of the cover makes it so...engrossing, so engaging. It really draws the eyes and looks spectacular. Next issue will see "GameInformer" reveal the new things to look forward to in the sequel to last year's massive hit, "Batman: Arkham Asylum" with the aptly titled, "Batman: Arkham City".

Currently in the mood for alternative American band, "We Are Scientists". I quite like this band - their sound is pretty awesome and it turns out I've heard one of their tracks before on a game called, "Burnout". As such, I've decided to name this blog post after one of their songs. Very cool stuff here.

WHAT I'VE BEEN WATCHING



This show used to be one of my favourites back when I had Foxtel (cable television). Since it's cancellation, it has gone on to develop a cult following and now that I'm re-watching it - I can see the appeal of this show to older audiences as well. I always felt that it wasn't quite a kids show as it was very different and darker than most television shows produced by Nickelodeon. Nonetheless, everyone should get exposed to the awesomeness that is "Invader Zim". If you don't like the character of GIR, I just feel sorry for you.

TIDBITS OF FILM NEWS



"Jackass 3D" - taking the complete piss out of the 3D gimmick and taking it to the extreme. Or as Johnny Knoxville so eloquently put it, "taking 3D and shoving it up Steve-O's asshole". I love these guys - they're so goddamn hilarious even if they're putting their body in harm's way for our amusement and entertainment. Looking forward to seeing this.

"The Expendables" and "Scott Pilgrim vs. the World", both release next week. Anyone else excited about either of these two films? I know I am. I'm hoping my friends agree to a double screening of the two films (meaning we're gonna try kill both films back-to-back on the same night) becuase I've been feverishly anticipating these films.

------------



So Justin Beiber's getting his own 3-D biopic where he will play himself. What the hell? I'm about as confused as you are. I'm not even sure if Beiber's short life warrants a biopic at all. Eminem at least had an interesting life but Beiber? Perhaps I'm just quick to label anything Beiber-related. I really don't think he deserves to have a movie made about him.

------------
More news from Zack Snyder's nerd-porn movie, "Sucker Punch". Alex Pardee, an artist whose work I admire, worked with director, Zack Snyder, quite closely in conceptualising this crazy and imaginative world for the film. Pardee, designed some character posters for the film that look absoultey amazing. Check them out below.

Finally, I present to you "Star Wars"-themed cupcakes made from awesomeness.

  1. You know what's upsetting?
    Arkham City (love the name) is going to be Mark Hamill's last role as the Joker.

    Also, I'm thinking of buying those two Trunks figurines we found on Chapel in addition to the other stuff we plan to get, what you think?

  2. will repost my other comment from 'the awesome' because i really have that much time on my hands....

    totally agree with you, anyone who says otherwise i think isn't wrong but ignorant. the director made a decision to include it, just like inception i think.

    i guess it kind of resonates with the message in how you can choose to ignore the troubles of the world and live in a fantasy or accept reality and do something about it, like de niro's character.

    i will now metaphorically drift into the shallow end of the pool and say that i saw that film you were in because your posts got reposted for some reason and long story short - i know carmen! small world.
