STAR TREK: MONDAY 16

 

 “Compassion: that’s the one things no machine ever had. Maybe it’s the one thing that keeps men ahead of them.” – Doctor McCoy.  Damn it, Javerage! I’m a writer, not a Smash Brothers junkie! I have lots to do. Like, like,… exactly. Right, let’s get on with Star Trek Monday. “I’ve found that evil usually triumphs…unless good is very, very careful.” – Doctor McCoy. Now as you can imagine there a number of Doctor McCoy memes; and most of them revolve around his ebullient personality. This meme, commonly referred to as “Damn it Jim, or I’m a Doctor” is probably one of the most recognizable of ALL Star Trek memes. Any fan of the original series would probably be able […]

STAR TREK: MONDAY 15

 

  “It is curious how often you humans manage to obtain that which you do not want.” – Spock.  Welcome to the NEW 925 site. It’s cleaner, smoother, more stylish, more classy, more sexually arousing. Yes, we still have articles! Yes, we still have pictures! Yes, we still have unstable writers!

So for this article – instead of compiling a […]

NEW DOCTOR!

 

   “The universe is big. It’s vast and complicated and ridiculous. And sometimes, very rarely, impossible things just happen and we call them miracles.” — The Doctor, Season 5, Episode 12. As the more informed amongst you will have probably noticed, Matt Smith is retiring from his role as Doctor Who. Now although this in its own is not a revelation; the person replacing him is. That’s correct – three people who do not yet know – the name of the “new” Doctor has been revealed. “The way I see it, every life is a pile of good things and bad things. The good things don’t always soften the bad things, but vice versa, the bad things don’t always spoil […]

Black Mesa: CLASSIC REVIEW

 

 “They’re waiting for you, Gordon. In the test chamber.” – A scientist.  Well, that was an interesting play through. At the most, I was expecting updated graphics. Followed by the never ending flow of familiar twists and turns. With familiar faces, weapons and enemies, all returning in updated glory. And a few rehashed memories, thrown in just for luck. Thus nothing overly new. HOWEVER! I soon found myself getting lost down new corridors. Where once only bland walls stood; NEW laboratories had been added. Inside them, NEW people (male and female) work, argue and chat. Lights flash, and NEW music plays. Re-imagined people and monsters stalk the corridors. And the action is more intense than ever. Around you, familiar sights […]

AMERICAN REVOLUTION!

 

 “We must all hang together, or assuredly we shall all hang separately.” – Benjamin Franklin. HAPPY FOURTH OF JULY, Americans. Hope you’re all getting plastered out of your minds. For those of you who are not drunk and want to play some – non-Imperialistic – games; this article is for you! Now, American Revolution games are few and far between, and a little thin on the ground. (No we are not going anywhere near Assassins Creed.) Instead we are going – in the theme of the week – to join the front lines of mass infantry combat, and look at an Empire: Total War mod that pits the Rebels against their Noble masters.  “I have not yet begun to fight.” […]

AMERICAN CIVIL WAR: DAY 3

 

 “The power of noble deeds is to be preserved and passed on to the future.” – Joshua Lawrence Chamberlain. Good morning, and welcome to this – the third and final day of Battle of Gettysburg. Over the past two days, the casualties have been mounting, with close to 30,000 men knocked out so far. Over the past 48 hours this battle has seen it all: bravery, betrayal, cunning, skill, brotherhood, friendship, fear, panic, awe, and Chamberlain’s 20th Maine bayonet charging the Greybacks off the Little Round Top. Now over the past 2 days we have looked at films, games, and comics relating to the Civil War. Today we try something a little different. Today we look at an amazing historical […]

AMERICAN CIVIL WAR: DAY 2

 

 “It is something great and greatening to cherish an ideal; to act in the light of truth that is far-away and far above; to set aside the near advantage, the momentary pleasure; the snatching of seeming good to self; and to act for remoter ends, for higher good, and for interests other than our own.” ? Joshua Lawrence Chamberlain. Welcome to the second day of slaughter as the Battle of Gettysburg continues. It is difficult to say who shall be victorious at this point. The Blue-Bellies have dug in just North of the town of Gettysburg, their superior numbers and technological advantage could be a major deciding factor. Not that it matters, as the veteran Greybacks, using their skills and […]

And WE celebrate and honour the dead by looking at some of MY favourite Civil War games and films! “I hate newspapermen. They come into camp […]

EVIL DEAD SERIES (1981-2013)

 

 “You will die! Like the others before you, one by one, we will take you.” – Cheryl: Evil Dead – 1981. I’m certain a number of you have seen the “new” Evil Dead film (2013). I must admit, I enjoyed it; despite the lack of Bruce Campbell. Who is Bruce Campbell? Oh, child. Allow me to enlighten you. And let me be the first to say “Welcome to the World of Evil Dead.” “Well hello Mister Fancypants. Well, I’ve got news for you pal, you ain’t leadin’ but two things, right now: Jack and shit… and Jack left town.” – Ash: Army of Darkness – 1992. Our tale is long and sometimes complicated. For over 30 years the world of […]

FILM VS WRITTEN WORD!

 

 “It ain’t whatcha write, it’s the way atcha write it.” —Jack Kerouac. The written word captures our imagination; while films show the spoils of our mind to the world. Both of these mediums are a fantastic way of expressing ideas and concepts. However the battle-lines between readers and watchers is moving closer, as famous works of literary genius are transformed into fantastic high-budget films; then transformed back into print. So, Wookiee, you get books based on the film, which itself is based on a book. Thus giving you ONE film and TWO distinct books. All of which have their own fanatics lining the streets and flogging themselves in abject worship of “their” beloved personal choice. All this leaves us with […]
