Review: 'Pariah' #1

Thu, 02/27/2014 - 13:29

An interesting new story comes out of Dark Horse this week. The tale infuses some subtle mystery with a large dose of science fiction to produce “Pariah”. There is a ton of space-related material already in circulation, but rarely in recent years is humanity the primary scope of the story. I’m not surprised to see the market flooding with material like this after Gravity, and I’m sure we’ll see even more grounded-in-reality sci-fi stories in the near future. “Pariah” #1 offers a decent start, but it offers little in the way of story or character development.

WRITTEN BY: Aron Warner and Philip Gelatt
ART BY: Brett Weldele
PUBLISHER: Dark Horse Comics
RELEASE DATE: February 26
PRICE: 3.99

The book follows a group of people in Earth’s future who have volunteered to live on a space station. The individuals call themselves Vitros and each have certain skills or knowledge that give them a role within the team. Already things are going wrong with the mission. What exactly is wrong isn’t clear, and by the end book the situation isn’t completely hopeless, but not much has changed.

I have to admit at the onset of this book there is so much information thrown in your face in an effort to world build it took me more than one read of the first few pages to get the facts straight. Essentially all of the questions that popped up throughout the book remained unanswered by its end. I get that the mystery should entice the reader, but some more clear direction would have helped to bring me into the story. This left me a tad disgruntled, but the the book does pique my interest enough to find out just who these group of Vitros are and why exactly they find themselves on an out of date space station that’s not as safe as it seems.

The script is clever, with a lot a whit infused in the narrative that adds both comedic relief and insight some into the other characters, though not enough. As the story rolls on however, the plot draws me in and the events at the end of the book help to solidify my interest in the book.

The art is a bit of a miss, but, like the writing, it grew on me towards the end. It has a very cartoony look that lacks significant details. With a story that’s meant to reflect a futuristic time I would have liked the art to have more clean crisp lines and the colour pallet more vibrant than the softness that is offered. When the story takes place on the exterior of the station, it’s the only time I find myself satisfied. Unfortunately, there are a lot more panels inside the station than out.

“Pariah” has a lot of potential and even though the first issue leaves some to be desired. There’s something about the book that makes me want more, I’m just not sure what it is yet.

'Zombie Safari' Opens Undead Theme Park!

Thu, 02/27/2014 - 13:21

I’m not big on genre films riffing on classics, but this is just too clever to ignore.

Red Sea Media is in development on Zombie Safari, a complete riff on Steve Spielberg’s Jurassic Park – only with zombies!

Years after the zombie apocalypse, life has returned to normal. A billionaire, driven mad by what happened to his family years ago, opens a zombie safari theme park. But when the power goes out, nothing is left to stop these “captive” zombies from escaping.

Piranha Sharks‘ Mark Burman is producing with no director or writer revealed, yet.

But we do have some awesome art…

The Untitled WB/New Line Movie Is NOT 'Annabelle'

Wed, 02/26/2014 - 22:40

Yesterday Warner Bros. and New Line Cinema announced two sets of a release dates, one for The Conjuring 2, the other for a currently untitled horror film.

We were the first to speculate that this untitled horror film, in theaters October 3, 2104, was the Conjuring spinoff, Annabelle. We also made sure to note that it may or may not be the John Leonetti-directed film, and that we were working on confirmation.

We did the work for you gents and received official word from Warners that the untitled horror film is NOT the Annabelle movie. It’s something else, which we weren’t able to get details on.

Hopefully we’ll have something for you soon – and as always, keep to Bloody Disgusting for all official and confirmed news.

'Dead Rising 3: Chaos Rising' Review: A New Low

Wed, 02/26/2014 - 20:21

Written by Jason Nawara, @JasonNawara

Capcom Vancouver has released the third entry in the Lost Chapters, the inexplicably mediocre-at-best series of DLC for Dead Rising 3. This one is called Chaos Rising, and I won’t bury the lead: it sucks. If you’ve read our reviews of Operation Broken Eagle and Fallen Angel you’ll know that we’ve found the contents of this season pass to be more than a little disappointing. Unfortunately, with this latest offering, it’s only gotten worse.

The first chapter featured a horrible main character with uninspired missions. The second chapter had a better character and plot, but the missions were uninspired. With the third chapter, we’re re-introduced to Hunter Thibodeux, one of the least appealing characters I’ve ever seen in a game. Oh, and the missions are still cookie cutter as all hell. It really doesn’t help that Hunter Thibodeux sounds like Mr. Show’s Ronnie Dobbs. Once I got that thought in my head, it never left.

No matter how hard I tried, I couldn’t shake the thought that Thibodeux was going to whack a zombie upside the head and then rifle through its pockets in a desperate search for mentholatums.

I feel like I can be open with you guys by now. This is, after all, the fourth Dead Rising 3-related review I’ve posted, so I believe we’ve established a good back and fourth going here.

This is the worst score I’ve ever given anything in my near six-year writing career. The running time of this expansion can be as short as an hour, which is consistent with the previous chapters, but this one is significantly less fun than the other entries. Granted, the custom motorcycle you get is pretty cool, but I only used it when dictated by the game as I’d rather be using a bulkier vehicle if/when I have the choice.

What it comes down to is the fact that Capcom is asking for about $10 an hour for this. Even if you bought the season pass, at say $7.50 an hour, it’s still too expensive. When the option of going to a movie is cheaper than the game you’re selling, there’s a problem.

With the absence of multiplayer from these episodes, the replay factor is non-existent, and if you’ve already reached level 50 you gain no XP. Unless you’re a total completionist, you’ll be playing these Lost Chapters entirely out of a love for Dead Rising — or perhaps you’re falling out of love with this awful fan service, so you’re looking for another great experience in Los Perdidos. This DLC fails to provide that.

If you’re a gamer who enjoys the Dead Rising series because of it’s wonky plot, costumes, and fun, open-world gameplay, you simply don’t want the extra content. Like the previous chapters, half of the world is locked, you’re basically kept on rails and the missions you’re given are so poorly developed one of them boiled down to “explore.” Outside of that thrilling mission, you’re essentially playing Fetch Quest Simulator 2009.

I loved Dead Rising 3. I stand by the fact that it was the best launch title across both next-gen platforms, but this has to rank up there as some of the worst DLC ever.

We’re talking Oblivion Horse Armor here, people. The sheer lack of extra content here is borderline disturbing and it sets a benchmark for overpriced and uninspired DLC content for the industry. There are barely any cut-scenes and the voice-overs you do hear are of the in-game variety.

The audio is forgettable. It’s there and it’s fine, but no discernible new things are in the game on that front. The massive patch that set the foundation for these chapters smoothed out the frame-rate. I appreciate that.

How could the powers that be think that this was okay to release? I’m just thinking forward to an inevitable sale when all of this goes 50% off and even at $15 bucks it might only marginally be worth it. Maybe I’m just taking out my negative feelings on Chaos Rising because I expected the DLC to have an upward trend instead of a downward one, but come on — an hour long? That, and the fact that these releases have come so close to each other, I feel like a boxer against the ropes, getting peppered with crappy DLC at an alarming rate. I may go down for the count when the fourth Lost Chapter is released.

These ‘Lost Chapters’ were lost for a reason.

The Final Word: The only thing saving Chaos Rising from receiving Bloody Disgusting’s first-ever zero in a game review is the fact that Dead Rising 3 is still incredibly fun and it gives me a reason to go back to enjoy the side stories as Nick Ramos runs around somewhere in my periphery.

Updated: Rodan, Shobijan Discovered In 'Godzilla' Trailer?!

Wed, 02/26/2014 - 18:14

Astounding Beyond Belief has found one helluva potential easter egg in the brand new Godzilla trailer.

If you were to go frame-by-frame through the monster’s destruction, what you’d see what could be are the infamous 6-inch tall Shobijan (The Mothra Twins)! For those unacquainted, the Shobijin (Japanese for “small beauties”) are two tiny priestesses or fairies that accompany Mothra, and who also speak for her. – Wiki Some say the footage around the :30 mark are just firemen, but who knows?

In addition, it was pointed out to us by BD reader ‘Avery’ and io9 that Rodan and possibly the half cyborg Gigan may have a brief appearance.

In theaters May 16, 2014, Godzilla an epic rebirth to Toho’s iconic Godzilla, this spectacular adventure pits the world’s most famous monster against malevolent creatures who, bolstered by humanity’s scientific arrogance, threaten our very existence. Making his first appearance in 1954 (Gojira) Godzilla is a giant monster that lives in the sea that comes from the ocean to feed on mankind.

Monsters‘ Gareth Edwards directs the all star cast including Elizabeth Olsen, Bryan Cranston, Aaron Johnson, Juliette Binoche, David Strathairn, Ken Watanabe, Richard T. Jones, Sally Hawkins, Akira Takarada, Victor Rasuk, Yuki Morita, and C.J. Adams.

SHOBIJAN?

RODAN?

[Random Cool] The Beatles And Nine Inch Nails Get Mashed Up Into "Come Closer Together"

Wed, 02/26/2014 - 18:00

Okay, so this is more than a few years late but it’s still awesome and I have a feeling many of you might not have heard this. Below is a fantastic mash up that takes the classic track “Come Together” from The Beatles and mashes it with Nine Inch Nails‘ haunting, erotic staple “Closer”. The end result is an awesome mix that works surprisingly well.

Head on down to give it a listen!

Review: ‘D4VE’ #3

Wed, 02/26/2014 - 16:43

Ryan Ferrier’s “D4VE” is on the brink of his big revival except everyone around him doesn’t give a shit. Turns out after years of sitting idly by, the robot population are rather bootless. It’s the type of staggering compliance in their personal misery that D4VE used to be part of, but now he’s filled with life. He sees a reason to live again and will stop at nothing to gain allies in his inquest.


WRITTEN BY: Ryan Ferrier
ART BY: Valentin Ramon
PUBLISHER: Monkeybrain Comics
PRICE: $0.99
GET IT HERE: http://www.monkeybraincomics.com/

D4VE’s world is just about as insane as you can get. An alien invasion has taken place and still everyone sits around as if there is no cause for concern. So earlier when D4VE felt isolated in his mediocrity, it was nothing. Turns out he’s even more alone now, although he does have 5COTTY at his side.

Ferrier lends such a unique and refreshing voice to “D4VE” that you’ll be smiling from ear to ear as you power through this engaging read. There is a certain flavor of humour to the robot speak that Ferrier has absolutely nailed. He uses common jargon in new and excting ways that come to define his population of comfortable automatons.

It works on two levels. There is the social commentary for those who enjoy dealing with the realization that we’re part of a society of corporate cattle and there is all the dick, poop, and fart jokes that will make even the most hardened men giggle.

Slacker stories are always an exciting ride. It’s not clear whether or not D4VE’s return to combat will ultimately be effective, in fact, it looks like we’re being set up for spectacular failure, but its so much fun to read and look at that it hardly matters.

Valentin Ramon’s art achieves a great balance adding colorful flourishes wherever he can get away with it to an otherwise drab and boring world. The result makes the issue both draining and exciting in a fantastic pace. The environments are dismal, but the character designs breathe life into the panels due to clothing and color choices. While the video archive records purple glow feels exciting and dynamic even amidst D4VE’s horrendous puns.

There really isn’t anything not to like about D4VE. It has a refreshingly funny voice, and presents the world of androids unlike you’ve ever seen it before. These are not the exciting and dynamic creatures built for adventure; they are horrible reflections of ourselves that make us realize how boring we’ve become. Luckily we have someone like “D4VE” who recognizes this crisis in his own way and plans to do everything he can to pull our lazy asses out of it. It’s not for the best reason, its not even for a good reason, but personal glory stories are always fun to watch, especially when the person who seeks the glory might not be ready for it.

Rating: 4/5 Skulls.

'Tulpa' Tackles Occultism And Theosophy In An Ever-Changing World

Wed, 02/26/2014 - 16:11

Tulpa is a surreal, narrative-driven puzzle-platformer that follows two playable characters, Ophelia and Oliver, both of which have two very distinct perceptions of the world around them. Both must survive, so to accomplish this the player will need to keep each characters’ perspective in mind. It looks like a blending of the atmosphere and puzzle-solving of Limbo with the vibrant art style of Insanely Twisted Shadow Planet.

Its developer is looking to raise $4,500 to help bring the game to fruition. Read on for its pitch video.

If you’d like to support Tulpa you can help it out on Indiegogo and/or Steam Greenlight.

SpectreVision's 'The Boy' Adds Major Cast!

Wed, 02/26/2014 - 15:59

House of 1,000 Corpses and Cooties star Rainn Wilson, World War Z‘s David Morse, Cloverfield‘s Mike Vogel, pictured, Zuleikha Robinson and Bill Sage have all been added to the cast of the SpectreVision production of The Boy, sources tell Bloody Disgusting.

Wilson will portray the character of William Colby, an enigmatic stranger who intrigues and beguiles the young Ted Henley. Internationally acclaimed actor David Morse will portray John Henley, motel owner and father of “The Boy” who will eventually grow to infamy. Mike Vogel and Zuleikha Robinson play a married couple, who along with their son (Aiden Lovekamp) spend the night at the Henley motel, and Bill Sage will portray the Sheriff of the rural town in which the Henleys reside.

As previously announced, the title role of Ted Henley will be portrayed by 8-year old Jared Breeze.

Based on the award-winning short subject film, Henley which appeared in competition at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival, The Boy is the first film of a planned trilogy tracking the childhood of a future serial killer, with installments depicting the character at ages 9, 14 and 18, respectively, and ending with his full transformation to an iconic mass murderer.

The Boy is directed by Craig MacNeill from a screenplay by McNeill and Clay McLeod Chapman, who created the characters in his novel “Miss Corpus.” The pair previously collaborated on the respective direction and writing of the short film. SpectreVision’s Elijah Wood, Daniel Noah and Josh C. Waller serve as producers. Partnering with SpectreVision on the project is Chiller Films.

The Boy began principal photography on February 17th in Medellín and Santa Fe de Antioquia, Colombia.
