Get him a cow…

So I’m watching the new JJ Abrams (Alias, Lost) show on Fox tonight.  It’s called Fringe and it’s a trippy mix of Lost and The X-Files. It’s an interesting show (so far) and I could see myself getting hooked, assuming that Abrams actually has an ending in mind this time. Alias and Lost are two [...]

What Is The New Ninja Theory Project?

The Heavenly Sword developers have a new website as well as a bunch of (utterly gorgeous) concept art paintings scattered around the various web pages:

Hi-res versions available here.

I will allow the awesomeness to pour from the screen into your eyes unhindered by my poor prose.

Heavenly Sword Demo Impressions

The Heavenly Sword demo hit the PSN today and I’ve had a chance to sit down, play it, and be slightly disappointed.
Before I move onto anything else, the demo is too short. There are two fight sequences and one QTE (or cinteractive, or whatever the fucking buzz-word is this month). Very short. There isn’t an [...]
