Heresy, Thy Name Is Dante

November 21, 2009 1 comment

A family shouldn’t have to wait until Sunday to worship the Lord. Now you can go to church every day without leaving your home. Participate in more than 24 unique and exhilarating Ceremonies. Be sure to try them all. The more you play, the more Grace points you collect. Then trade in your Grace points to unlock the Holy Mysteries. Only from Prayer Works Interactive. Help bring your family closer. To Heaven. Learn more at MassWePray.com

via Mass: We Pray – The Video Game.

A few days ago, when the above video and site went live…well, let’s just say that people were confused. And rightly so. Few hardcore gamers (or people who spend more than five minutes a week on the internet) could say with any sense of certainty that such a game would or wouldn’t definitely exist.

It’s with something akin to a sigh of relief that the site has since been updated. Try pre-ordering the game (or clicking some of the other links) and you’ll be treated to an accusation of heresy, tying in with next year’s release of Dante’s Inferno, along with a new gameplay trailer and a facebook app.

The funny/weird/scary thing is, if Mass: We Pray were a real game, you can guarantee that someone, somewhere would be buying it.

I feel obliged to share this, as shared on twitterville by @JoeQuesada. I don’t know what’s weirder, the video, or the web-site

It’s Like Primary School Maths Class All Over Again

May 3, 2009 1 comment

So I was thinking recently about how we (and more importantly, I) rate movies…I’ve fallen into the habit in recent years of marking things out of five, but I don’t know how accurate that is: effectively, it’s the same as marking things out of 10 (just multiply by two, people) but some people just don’t like doing that.

So, dear reader, I’m looking for some feedback as to what way YOU think movie reviews should be.

Vote below…go on, you know you want to!

The Kinda Leak That Doesn’t Need A Plumber

March 29, 2009 Leave a comment

I’ve gone off Marilyn Manson a lot recently: “Eat Me, Drink Me” wasn’t a bad album, but it certainly wasn’t as good as “Mechanical Animals” or “The Golden Age Of Grotesque” in my opinion. (In case you can’t guess from the name-check, they’d be my favourite Manson albums, and hey, who doesn’t love glam-influenced metal-pop vaudeville-core?

A couple of new songs have been leaked, anyway, and I’m thinking I might like new song “Arma-god-damn-mother-fucking-geddon” in a “Golden Age” type way. I’m still not sure, and it’s apparently a basic mix,  so I’ll have to wait for the album proper to drop, but until then, ch-ch-ch-check it out.

Coming To A DVD Player Near You

March 16, 2009 Leave a comment

As soon as I can, I will have both of these movies on DVD, and I will not shut up about them.

First up, “Repo! The Genetic Opera,” starring Anthony Head (ie. Giles from Buffy), Paul Sorvino, Sarah Brightman, Paris Hilton and…okay, that’s just a weird cast. Directed by Darren Bousman who did some of the “Saw” movies, I’m hoping it’ll end up a little bit like “The Rocky Horror Picture Show” or similar, and the soundtrack is pretty cool. I know it’ll be crap, but that doesn’t mean it won’t be enjoyable and fun!

Speaking of movies that are crap, but enjoyable, “Mutant Chronicles” is also out on DVD: it opened over here in Europe last year, but still hasn’t gotten a theatrical release in the States yet. As with most movies featuring Thomas Jane and Ron Perlman, it isn’t exactly Shakespeare, but it’s such a guilty pleasure that that doesn’t matter. I’ll also stick review up soon for anyone over there  in the States wondering if they should go and see it or not.

Frickin’ Tease

Dear Mr. & Mrs. Lostwriter

I am writing this letter in relation to the behaviour of your recent episode. While it was fun, and highly enjoyable, you have presented your loyal viewers with, what we in the business, refer to as a “cocktease.”

Please do not do this again: next time, we will expect to get to at least second base, if not go all the way.

Regards
