Friday Night Horror Corner- The Bunker

As I sit here writing my review I’m several beers into an unemployed Friday night.  So the last few days I have been overloading my brain with internet job searches, video games, and spending copious amounts of time with my daughter.  As any one of you might guess I’ve also been pulling out the old DVD’s and watching a few horror movies.   Tonight I’ve saved the best for a drunken Friday night with friends.  The Bunker,  a movie about a squad of Nazi soldiers pushed back to a bunker in the middle of nowhere.  A time honored plot line of a building being built over unholy ground a la poltergeist  1 – a million.  The soldiers are holed up in a bunker versus an imaginary American force surrounding them.  As the soldiers succumb to various hallucinations and increasing paranoia things start to go wrong when one of them decides to go to the underground tunnels to find a way out.  Of course the “Americans” get into the tunnels and start to kill them off one by one.  Well as you might suspect things go seriously downhill when the flashbacks and hallucinations begin causing people to lose their minds.  Serious bouts of anger and delirium are whittling away at the morale of the group.   Because I don’t want you to hate me for spoiling the movie, people die and the movie ends.  So to wrap this up before I black out or the thunderstorm were having kills my internet, this is another Nazi suspense wartime movie.  I will be shifting next week to zombie movies and really getting into the down and dirty.  So for now Dream Machines this is atomiczombie tuning in and tuning out.

 

Keep your baseball bats and machetes ready for next week.  We might have a nice heated discussion about the perfect zombie weapons and how to survive a zombie apocalypse.

Press hop with Allen Iverson

Man, this is cracking me up. I can’t stop watching it. You may have learned of Steve Porter from his Rap Chop, or the sham-wow chop, but he’s hit gold again with another rap. He mashes up a bunch of stars, the famous Jim Mora freak out, the dennis green rage moment and my favorite of all TO cry-baby meltdown. THATS MY QUATERBACK. (not anymore)

Rumor, Xbox360 getting 1 terabyte hard drive?

Whoowee, I hope so, and for the love of gaming, please be affordable! Techradar.com has an article up that says an analyst is predicting the release of the drive when Project Natal ships. Though I hope it were sooner, it only makes sense now that Microsoft will soon be offering full 360 games to buy straight off the Xbox Live Marketplace. Add to that, 1080p video rentals as well….not only is that old 20GB drive rendered useless, but the 60GB as well…and the 120GB will only fill up fast. I’ve been bellyaching about what Microsoft does as far as hard drive prices for a long time now….I mean, c’mon, 150$ for a 120GB drive, when I just bought a 1 terabyte external drive for my pc for less than 100bux! Let’s hope for some good news soon.

1 Terabyte? I can haz it?

X-Engine, updated 360 dev kit, why’s this important?

I’ll tell you why…you give a game developer better and easier to handle tools to work with on a game platform, then you potentially have better and more advanced games in the future. UK site gamezine has reported that newer dev kits have been shipped out earlier this year. Is this exciting? Hellz yes! Think about Gears of War, then Gears of War 2….part 1 was great, but part 2…oh man, levels were significantly larger, graphics better defined, tons more enemies on screen…that’s just some of the benefits that time and improved tools can help developers to accomplish. Here we’re thinking things probably won’t get any better with current platforms, the next wave of games will hopefully prove us wrong. Check out the link, there’s some interesting stuff there.
