Tomb RaidedCompleted Tomb Raider. It does become slightly more player-friendly as it progresses, but it's too little too late. I really do think this title is made up of EVERYTHING that is wrong with games at the moment: it rides on an old title that it really has nothing to do with, it leads you round by the nose, it relies on dull collectable items for longevity, it thinks "maturity" means everything must be caked in gore, it's wracked through with quick-time-events and it ignores that ALL of these points have been failings of a zillion other titles over the last 10 years, leaving the developers no reason other that sheer lack of talent, imagination or common sense for their inclusion!!
Where's my pen? I'm "How To Playing" this bitch.....Might even "Zorro Perforation" it......
The End of the Twinkie?http://www.usatoday.com/story/money/business/2012/11/16/hostess-twinkies-ding-dongs-wonder-bread-going-out-of-business/1708409/
World War 3 may just be months away, with much of the middle east currently being blown apart by missiles and the locals setting their neighbours on fire, but the real news is that the Twinkie, the USA's primary contribution to world cuisine, could cease to be.
"You eat those?" I hear people ask. Hell no. Never eaten one in my life. There's something about their unnatural, chemical-yellow colour and that they have a half-life rather than a use-by date that just sets off one too many alarm-bells.
In fact, I'm pretty sure that if you read the print on the pack, you'll find asbestos to be a key ingredient.
Even John McClane can't keep one down, and he took out a building full of terrorists with nothing but his bare feet and a Santa hat.
Which leads to my point: Without the Twinkie, there are SO many lines from SO many classic movies that future generations just a
PuritanArt"Your deviation Sonic Screw(driver) was reported for Explicit Pornography. The report was reviewed by a member of the Staff and action was taken, deleting the deviation and marking the report as Resolved.
Additionally, the following comment was provided:
A member of staff has reviewed this deviation and has determined that the theme itself, or one or more details present in the scene, has made the work unacceptable for submission here.
As such this deviation has been removed in accordance with our policies and should not be resubmitted."
"Explicit Pornography"?! Aw, jeez, guys. You must have the worst collection of porn on the planet to think that was explicit.
A 90s Rochelle Swanson outing was more explicit that that pic, and that stuff got aired, uncut, on terrestrial UK TV (god bless you Channel 5, you made the young Jack jolly).
I believe that, for something to be labelled "explicit", SOMETHING must be visibly going in SOMEWHERE. Such was not the case in the offending image,
Silent Hill: RevelationWow. And I thought the first Silent Hill film missed the point.
I was surprised that a sequel was made at all, given the rather poor narrative (and acting. That kid was almost as bad as the brat from Phantom Menace) of the first movie, but in comparison with Revelation, it was positively Shakespearian.
If there's a third film in the franchise, I'll be amazed (to a point. We have had, what is it, 5 Resident Evil films, now?)
How hard is it to wrap your head around the concept, Film-Makers? Silent Hill has no face, it has no agenda, it's just an evil f**king mirror that reflects your personal demons. It's the perfect vehicle to use different actors to tell different stories with each and every film. It's potentially the James Bond of horror set-ups. Play it right and you could get 50 films out of it, easy.
You devolve it into a generic, fun-fair, ghost-train and you're pissing away the concept with such force you blow a hole in the lavatory wall.
Learning to read, with Jolly Jack.Well, that was fun.
Let's just go over what I posted yesterday: I voiced that I have no opinion on guns in America, because I don't live there and as such; don't care. I said that I, personally, am afraid of guns and think they're industrial killing machines. And I posed a vague, hypothetical question that could have been applied to any situation where an old law/doctrine is in effect.
That's it. Nothing more. Harshest word in there was "change" followed by a question mark. Not "ban", not "make guns illegal" and certainly not "outlaw free speech and trial by jury", which some people with a slightly looser grasp on reality seem to think go hand in hand with owning the firearms I said I don't care about.
Well, today, I am going to post an opinion: if you're the kind of insecure, paranoid little twit that flies off the handle when someone poses a simple question, and who holds weapons and the laws that permit them with such religious reverence that you perceive that question as not
Rockstar do it again......regrettably.Red Dead Redemption: Undead Nightmare was fun. Lots of fun. It was also, obviously, a total fluke, because the main Red Dead game was irritating, LA Noir felt dull and empty, GTA 4 was a chore to play and now GTA 5 is loaded with even more trademark Rockstar rage-quit-inducing pleasantries.
With that track record, you'd think a person of (at least) average intelligence, like me, would have steered clear of the game.
I did not.
Lets see what I've done in San Andreas today: I've not shot any Elk because of the insta-death mountain lions, I've driven off a foot high cliff and exploded in a manner that would suggest the chassis of crappy rust bucket I was driving had been crafted from uranium, I've been knocked over in the road and then continuously mown down by other vehicles until dead, I've watched the player-character casually start walking around a vehicle to enter it despite the urgency implied by both my hammering of the control pad and the sh*tloa
Thor: The Dark WorldA quick, spoiler-free review: it's goooooood.
I'd actually say that it's the best paced super-hero flick since the first Iron Man film.
Incredible Hulk fizzled in the third act.
Iron Man 2 saw every character turn either really wet or go full retard.
Thor felt a bit like a plodding, 80s, movie-with-a-message.
Captain America just felt like an extended prologue for The Avengers.
The Avengers didn't really get going until the finale.
And Iron Man 3 occupies a middle ground between Iron Man and Iron Man 2.
I'm certainly not saying any of those films were bad, it's just they felt saggy in areas.
Thor: The Dark World has a perfect pace. It's engaging right from the get-go and doesn't trip up once (that I noticed).
It is part of the Marvel cinematic series, though, so there are many, many nods and references to previous films (one of Loki's disguises is brilliant), which may leave newcomers lost.
And, of course, if
Evil Dead RemakeIf an original film has a splendid core concept, but a budget too low or a director too inept to do it justice, I don't mind a remake. I'll applaud it.
The most toxic remake thus far has been "Total Recall", which was terrible simply because it used the original as a crutch at more than a few points and, despite having a massive budget and 20 years of technological advancement on the original: felt less exciting and epic.
Closer to the book, sure, but just not as much fun.
And now they've turned their gaze upon "Evil Dead".
Now, I'm not going to try and defend the original Evil Dead, because it's not actually that great a film. This is proven with "Evil Dead 2", in which the entirety of the preceding movie's plot and purpose is successfully reduced to an opening act. Something that wouldn't have been possible were the movie, y'know; good.
"Evil Dead 2" is awesome. It's called a "cult classic" for a reason, and, in my eyes, should have rendered the whole franchise "sacred", meaning you
The Hobbit: An Unexpected JourneySaw The Hobbit last night. It was very good... if a bit long. Don't get me wrong, I'm all for seeing all the little details interconnecting The Hobbit to Lord of the Rings and all that, but for the average watcher... eh... it kinda dragged. I overheard several people saying they fell asleep during the film, and I noticed more than once a number of people fidgeting and looking at their watches. Still, it's a damn fine movie and It's a shame we have to wait so long for the next two films.
Having The Hobbit being written during the beginning of Lord of the Rings is pretty smart. You could effectively watch the 3 Hobbit movies and then immediately move right into the 3 Lord of the Rings movies. Kudos to Jackson for that, it'll be great to marathon run the two trilogies back to back.
This movie was, like the book, much lighter and funnier than The Lord of the Rings and I was surprised at how much from the books they actually kept. They
Apparently I hit a sore spot.The news that I might one day return to the internet apparently isn't going over well.

Can you stop being a whiney attention whore for once in your life, and quit relying on 12-15 year-old kids on a public art site to validate your existence (that's all your DA post was. Don't kid yourself thinking it was meant to be something else)? Your art hasn't gotten any better since your hiatus, and instead of trying to improve it you either sick your fans to give you attention or tell them to attack your mean bullies. Your Brental Floss strips are getting uglier each time you churn one out, and to add insult to injury, you, Brent, and Dan can't tell a joke (People on ED edit your strips to make funnier jokes. Let this sink in your head for a while). Apparently you learned nothing from your "hiatus" after seeing that DA blog, as I'm trying to figure out how each Brental strip keeps getting uglier because that's the only comic you're fo
Steins;Gate manga returns in Comic Blade magazineLong time since we've heard news, eh? Nothing yet about the movie, but there's still the manga to look forward to.
The official website for Mag Garden's Monthly Comic Blade magazine has announced that Taishi Tsutsui's (Esprit, Fukashigi Philia) Steins;Gate: Hiyoku Renri no Sweets Honey spinoff manga will return to the magazine in a new manga titled Steins;Gate: Hiyoku Renri no Sweets Honey Final.
The new series will premiere in the magazine's January 2013 issue shipping on November 30.
The tone of the series is slapstick comedy compared to the more serious overtones of the anime, but even the anime had its great funny moments
Case Of Art Thief (C.O.A.T. 04)Greetings everyone,

Do care to follow deviantART rules when taking care of the art thief. Make sure that the original artist has been informed of what pieces of art have been stolen from him/her so that he/she may report them himself/herself.
REMEMBER PEOPLE, REPORT WHILE USING THE SILENT NINJA TECHNIQUE. Which means:
- Go on the art thief's page
- And most of all, DON'T LEAVE A SINGLE MESSAGE TO THE ART THIEF, NOTHING! NADA! NIETE! ZERO! NO INSULT OR BASHING, NOTHING AT ALL!
So if I am to post a journal entry about a case of art thievery, you in return MUST NOT go and bash the art thief (as much as it is tempting.) Otherwise we become a group that encourages harassment and this is not what this group stands for . And

Five Things About Me:
1) I have the bad habit of getting obsessed about books/cartoons that are supposed to be for a kid's audience. (but i suppose everyone already knew it
no one said the 5 facts should be secrets right? right?)
2) Also they way I'm obsessed about them, as for all the other things i'm obsessed with, is scary in many

Manga REC : Oumagadoki ZooOk since it seems like this weekend i won't be able to draw anything because of various reasons, i want to try making manga recommendation sorry for the poor english i will probably use ahah (- -)''
The manga is Oumagadoki Zoo
and i didn't choose it just because there was a rabbit-boy in the cover or maybe yeswritten ad illustrated by Kōhei Horikoshi.
The manga talks about the life of Hana, a youn girl who is very shy and clumsy. She hasn't got many friends but she really loves animals and spends lots of time reading informations about them. At the beginning of the summer she decides to start working in the local zoo - that is actually pretty unknown and desolated in the zone. But once she arrives there she founds out that the Director is a crazy rabbit who barely tries to hide his face with a hat.
Though Hana saw his real face the Director, Shiina, decides to "interview" her anyway for
The DAvengers InitiativeGreetings everyone,
I'm *FallenAngelGM and like all of you, I am a member of DeviantArt, the world's largest online art community.
Some of you know me for my manga project #Heart-Of-Wildfire. But most of you probably know me for my actions taken against art thievery. After the recent case I've solved with the wonderful help of you people, I decided I had enough of this. We Deviants on this website work hard on our artistic pieces and we put our heart and soul on each and everyone one of them.
But when we are stroke by art thievery, it is never a pleasant experience. Especially when we try our hardest to report. Sometimes, the art thieves are still roaming around and their acts are never correct.
That's why I decided to create this group, :iconthe-DAvengers:, along with this movement:
This group, with your help, has the unique goal of reporting to DeviantArt moderators in a faster and hopefully more effective way. With your help, by joining and watching this group we'
