AN INTROVERT’S GUIDE TO INDUSTRIAL MUSIC

You know,I’m sitting here in my room reflecting exactly how I became so involved in the industrial music scene when my first outing to a show was in Philadelphia this past weekend. I saw Youth Code with opening acts Void Vision and Psychic Teens and it was wonderful. But, that’s getting off subject. The topic at hand is: How did Steve get involved in the industrial scene? I’m an introvert. At least I would like to call myself that without sounding like another internet user who self-diagnoses their self. But, no, I enjoy eating out, going to the local movie store at the mall, but that’s about it. When it comes to bigger crowds, carnivals, or anything dealing with a […]

When Metal Gear Solid’s AI plays by the same rules

Kojima’s Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain is a great game for a lot of different reasons, but when the AI of the enemy was affected by the same conditions and rules I was during general gameplay without it being scripted or a cut-scene, that was when I realised just how incredible this title really was. You might wonder what I am on about, so let me tell you a story. Admittedly a recorded video would have worked better but I didn’t have recording software running when this happened so I decided to recollect the events in short story format. I did dramatize it slightly for affect but that just makes the read better. It all started while Snake […]

Metal Pangolin’s Comic book roundup

 

 Episode 2: Wrath of the Rise of the Planet of the Pangolins at Dusk Dr. Strange Of all the movies in Marvel studios upcoming slate that has me intrigued, Dr. Strange is is the one that will really test just how well they can put together a movie that stays well within the bounds of the universe they have already constructed while at the same time introducing new and exciting elements to it, that have up until now been absent. “Dr. Strange” will finally introduce magic or something akin to magic to the Marvel cinematic universe (MCU). The title character will be portrayed by fan favourite actor, Benedict Cumberbatch (Sherlock) who will be joined by an all-star cast including Tilda […]

Alan Rickman – The actor, the voice, the hero

We have lost many cult heroes in January. David Bowie, known for his unique sense of fashion, his movie roles like the Goblin King in Labyrinth and also his hit songs like “Space Oddity” and “Let’s Dance” died after an 18-month battle with cancer on January 10th. Glenn Frey from the band The Eagles who co-wrote the cult favourite song, Hotel California with Don Henley passé away on January 18th. Another legend, Alan Rickman, died on January 14.

He died of cancer at age 69, after quite an impressive career. Alan Sidney Patrick Rickman, born […]

Star Wars Character Introductions: Feels the same

*This is not a review!* The Star wars franchise means many things to many people. To most fans, it might be the epitome of sci-fi space opera, while equally symbolising how the vision of a movie’s creator can clash with what the fans have come to expect and enjoy about his creation and in so doing alienate them from it. After having seen “Star Wars Episode 7: The Force Awakens”, I came out thinking about how it differed and also how similar it was to the other movies in the series. I’m referring to the way that they chose to frame this movie, this introduction to a whole new trilogy and how it was like “The Phantom Menace” and the […]

Star Wars: The Dorkside and the Laughter

 

 Not so long ago, in various cities around the world….. It was a time of unrest; there was strife and suffering everywhere. No country was safe. Yet amongst all this we found small glimmers of… HUH??? Stories of individuals who took it onto themselves, whether intentionally or not, to bring about change in the most unusual and hilarious of ways. Vladimir Lenin statue turned into statue of Darth vader In the Ukraine  In a move that would have made Lenin turn in his mausoleum, a statue that had once been erected in his honour has been transformed into that of the Sith Lord Darth Vader by in Odessa, Ukraine. It was part of a new law that was imposed that […]

Neverending Downloads

As many of you know, I recently purchased Fallout 4. It is a fantastic game. I absolutely adore it. But! There was one minor issue that got under my skin -the download. Granted it is the main part of modern gaming culture. But having to wait hour upon hour before you can enjoy your purchase is just heartbreaking. In fact, so much of our time is spent downloading the latest patch, fix, and update that we, particularly in developing nations, get far less time than we’d like to using our products. Hell, most of us usually get a few hours in on a Sunday afternoon unless there’s a large update that needs to happen first. Work it out. I have […]

Fallout 4: 5 bits of advice for noobs

So I’ve been running around the Commonwealth wasteland for several weeks now. I’ve seen all sorts of towns and settlements. I’ve met lots of interesting characters. I’ve completed a plethora of interesting quests. I’ve slaughtered the population of a small country. (They had it coming.) I’ve collected all sorts of scraps, piles of junk, tons of weapons, complete sets of armour and all sorts of other bric-a-brac. Yet after all this, I am still no where near completion; and I am often outmatched by my enemies and the world around me. Now because of all this insanity I’ve decided to give some advice for you first time Fallout players. TIP 1: Do not go south-west. The south-western section of the […]
