It's a Big Year for The Walking Dead...
A giant assessment on everything Walking Dead. The comics, TV show and video game all reviewed along with news of upcoming Walking Dead content...
God Bless America REVIEWED!
God Bless America is an incredibly insightful (yet ironic) look into the culture of our modern day society in which we praise the least talented and most idiotic as we see main character, Frank Murdoch (Joel Murray) slowly mentally collapse as he is driven more and more insane by this social degradation until one day he decides that he's had enough and decides to kill all these idiotic "celebrities" that have corrupted modern culture...
Regarding Sexism in Video Games...
Sexism in video-games... As most of you are probably aware, there is this woman who goes by the name "Feminist Frequency" on Youtube. On her channel, she discusses feminism under a variety of different mediums in todays world for example, Comic Books, Video Games, Tv Shows films and more and describes how these things are sexist. However Anita Sarkeesian...
Skyrim: Dawnguard First Impressions (Review Part 1)
So I didn't expect that I would have to do a two part review for Dawnguard, the first downloadable content for Skyrim, it's because the whole DLC is so big that it would require a two part review. Not that I haven't completed Dawnguard its just that the game offers two choices to the player and based on those choices the game offers completely different campaigns. And since I have completed one of them on my legitimate character I feel that I have only completed fifty percent of the DLC. My second part of the review will consist of the other choice.....
Saints Row 3 Review
Saints Row: The Third" is a delightfully humourous yet perfectly violent open world game from the gents over at Volition inc. You are the head of the famous gang known as "The Saints" and their meteoric rise to power in the town of Steelport by doing a variety of wacky missions such as hopping onto a dune buggy, lighting yourself on fire and crashing into other cars....

I'm sorry to say my opinion has drastically changed. The glitches in Vegas have become near un-bearable. With the constant freezing/ crashing and combination of glitches I can barely play the game without finding a crippling glitch or a freeze in a key-point.

Dead Space 2 "Lullaby" Trailer - There is too many motherfuckin' Necromorphs, on this motherfuckin' plane!

Red XIII: The Promised Land? Isn't that just a legend? / President Shinra: Even so, it's just too appealing to not to pursue.
Aeris: Say, Cloud. Have you ever been a bodyguard? You DO do everything, right? / Cloud: Yeah, that's right. / Aeris: Then, get me out of here.
I'm planning to go on ahead and review my favourite Final Fantasy games for the next while and what better one to go for next than Final Fantasy 7.
Final Fantasy 7, what words spring to mind when I hear that word?; Epic Storyline that has been known to bring grown men to tears,Epic music to insert emotions never before invented into your body, graphics that were revolutionary for the time it was made (For their first time at making 3D characters). When I was very young, about 1-4 years old, I went over to two of my mams friends. It was in these two houses that I was introduced to Console Video Games. Games that would later be considered classics and standard setters for games to come e.g. Croc: Legend of The Gobbos, Ape Escape, Alundra, Crash Bandicoot. However there was one game I could never stop loving. Final Fantasy 7. Sure, at 4 years old I couldn't even kill the 1st boss without requesting help, but that didn't stop me from enjoying it. When I was six I got my PS1. Got Croc with it. However it wasn't long before I demanded Final Fantasy 7.

Garnet: I am actually... Princess Garnet Til Alexandros, heir to the throne of Alexandria. I have a favor I wish to ask of you... I wish to be kidnapped...right away.
Well as it's Final Fantasy 9s 10th birthday in 14 days (As far as the English version is concerned) and seeing as a friend of mine was kind enough to let me download it onto my PS3 and i've made it to the point just before disc 3, I felt it needed a review. So with the first review for a ps1 game, here I go. I would however ask people to bear in mind that this game is from the year of Y2K so I shan't be comparing it to the games of today (Even though it surpasses most of them). Anyway on with the show.

SPOILERS ARE TO BE FOUND BELOW!
Well it's well overdue for a review and after playing it for a week I think I have a fairly good idea of what my opinion is.
To start off i'm going to set something straight. Some of you mightn't be able to understand this, I've seen people who haven't played the game declare it an expansion who have yet to play the game. This is far from an expansion. It may have the same game engine and a lot of silly bugs and freezes are still here but that's about it as far as the common ground the two games have eachother. To put it simply; Fallout New Vegas is Fallout 1 and 2 combined with the game engine of Fallout 3.

On the afternoon of Friday, the 22nd of the 10th in year of the lord 2010. I ventured into Gamestop with fellow BLARGer Adam. It was the game we talked about for a year. The wait was well worth it especially for the near (Pardon the made up word here folks) JIZZTASTIC!.
I spent €80 on the collectors edition, So before I review the game, Allow me to review the actual boxset first.
The first thing i'd like to cover is "All Roads".
All Roads is 40 page graphic novel written by Chris Avellone. It basically tells the story of what happened prior to New Vegas, including Benny meating up with the "Great Khans". It was a great read all together although a bit annoying how we aren't really introduced to the Khans personally.
Next thing I'll talk about are the chips.
You get 8 chips in all. One from each of the major Casinos; The Tops, Ultra-Luxe, Atomic Wrangler etc. It's really nice to have these handy. Not because I intend to gamble/sell. Just to have around as a collectors item. This applies only to 7 of the 8 chips. The 8th chips is EXTRA special. The chip is the "Lucky 38 Platinum Chip" which the entire game is based around. It's even cooler how it is made of proper metal :P.
You also get a "The Making of New Vegas" DVD. I thought this was great. This is a behind the scenes 1 hour long ( At least I think it's that long) documentary of all the work that went into vegas, Featuring interview and such.
Finally but not least the Deck of "New Vegas" cards. Featuring various new Vegas characters with little catch-phrases underneath.
So overall I'd give this Collectors edition boxset 10/10.
This is well worth the price of €80 (Whatever currency it is where you are) and is a MUST for all Fallout fans.

I think we already established that BioShock Infinite is going to be the biggest and most mind blowing game....ever, so these new screens just support the ongoing fact and that were immensely close to world domination.
And boy isint Elizabeth pppppuurrrrrrrrrrrrtttttttyyyyyyyyy!

Fallout New Vegas is probably the game i've looked forward to the most in my whole life. Recently I even bought my own Fallout 3 Bobblehead for €25 off Ebay.
Isn't it simply epic?, Anyway onto the tidbits.
In about a fortnights time the latest addition to one of the best loved series of the decade, Professor Layton shall storm onto TV screens in his first movie. The eternal diva is set before the events of "The Curious Village" making it the earliest part of the Professor Layton series. This adventure follows Layton and Luke (On his first REAL mystery with the Professor) after they recieve a letter from Laytons old pupil, Jenis Quatlane. So the dynamic puzzle solving duo set out only to be trapped in a game of epic proportions.
A lot of people said that such an idea could not be done, "How could the puzzle section of Professor Layton work on a TV screen" The masses called out. Well I'm here to say that they captured it perfectly ( they even found a way to incorporate the games puzzle theme song when they were trying to solve the answer). Sure we don't get to solve the puzzles ourselves but we see how Layton solves them with his genious intuition. Don't think that just because this is set before The Curious Village that we won't see any of our favourite characters such as Don Paolo,
We get a brilliant introduction featuring all our favourites (Who were met in later games) including of course Barton and the well-loved inspector Chelmey.
However any extras they could have incorporated were added in, Such as Andrew Schrader the professors mentor (Who is working on the Pandoras Box as we can see it in the background)
So it would be a bit silly for me to give you this review and not include the link. Well I come bearing gifts via this link. I hope you'll enjoy it as much as I have because this deserves 5 stars!
Link is Japenese with english subtitles.

Earlier this morning, Bungie employee Joseph Staten gave a small hint as to what the first non - Halo game made by Bungie may be like. Staten was giving a talk at GDC online, titled "Writing the Whirlwind" and it was inevitable that somebody would ask him about the new game and universe Bungie are creating, in partnership with Activision.

This news is a bit of a shock since it was announced at SDCC last July. Exciting for some of the new Spidey fans but not for the long term fans, ever since Carnage was announced he was heavily criticised because of his disruption to Venoms golden years and has left a stain on Venoms reputation by causing him to become a softer character. Not only did Carnage apparently ruin what Venom had going for him he also was seen as a marketing tool due to the popularity of the symbiote, which was in my opinion milked up by Marvel. Im really looking forward to these couple of issues and hope there somewhat similar to the Anti Venom series, which I really enjoyed, what gives me some comfort is that Zebb Wells the writer of Anti Venom is also working on Carnage.
The special guests in this comic is obviously Spider-man who is accompanied by Iron Man.
I can honestly say im looking forward to these five part issues coming this month and is sure to at least check out just to see how new Carnage is getting on, I will admit that I think Carnage is going to be great as a woman the way Carnage strides along with evil in its eyes is something that goes well with woman :P
