Bayonetta: Bloody Fate Review

baynetta-bloody-fate-box-art

As a lot of Bayonetta fans are blatantly aware, there is an Anime adaptation of the Bayonetta storyline as a film called Bayonetta: Bloody Fate. The film adaptation very loosely follows the storyline of the first video game in the Bayonetta series, Bayonetta. The story follows the journey of an Umbran Witch, named Bayonetta, as she travels to the city of Vigrid to unlock her forgotten memories. The adaptation is animated by GONZO and released by Madman Entertainment here in Australia. In Bayonetta: Bloody Fate we follow Bayonetta, a femme fatale Umbran Witch with no memory of her past that has begun to make a living by clearing out Angels during funerals at the request of Enzo, a mafia-esque figure. … Continue reading

Stardock CEO Brad Wardell Once Again Targeted By Gaming Media

stardock-and-the-shit-hitting-the-fan

Just yesterday, the CEO of Stardock wrote to his personal blog about being targeted by members of gaming developers and media professionals. In his blog, he listed both Zoe Quinn and Jim Sterling by name as attackers of his after he tweeted to a random person on Twitter asking them to send through their resume. After sending the request for a resume to an artist, Wardell states that both Zoe Quinn and Jim Sterling attempted to use his false rape accusations against him. The reasoning for this is that the artist he was requesting a resume of had apparently drawn lewd artwork of Zoe Quinn in the past. You can read Brad’s full account here, on his official blog. @ShreddedMoose … Continue reading

Intel Is Now Advertising on 8Chan

8-chan-intel-lel

In our investigations into the whole #GamerGate “consumer revolt” (attr. Anonymous), we came across something quite strange. In the past, the CPU manufacturer Intel had declared that they would be dropping advertisements out of Gamasutra for various reasons, reasons usually attributed to Gamasutra posting an article slandering gamers. Historically speaking, gamers are likely one of the largest demographics outside of business purchasing high-end CPU kits. During our research we stumbled upon this advertisement at the top of the video game board on Infinite Chan, or, 8chan.co/v/. This looks surprisingly like an Intel advertisement. Here’s our very own screenshot of the ad. The very least we can raw from this is that either Intel supports gamers, or 8Chan uses an advertising … Continue reading

Red Vs. Blue Season 12 Review

red-vs-blue-season-12-box-art

Red Vs. Blue is one of the most popular, if not -the- most popular webseries of all time. This 12th season marks something like the 12th year that the series has been running and it has been an incredibly long tale for the Red and Blue teams of Blood Gulch. The gist of Red vs. Blue is that there are two teams of soldiers that are at war with each other, but these two teams are some of the most incompetent soldiers that could ever have existed. Since the shows inception, the series has gone from a story of two idiot teams of soldiers fighting it out, to a story about mercenaries, freelancers and an intergalactic conspiracy to control a … Continue reading

A Look At Magic The Gathering: Khans Of Tarkir (And Core Deck 2015)

magic-the-gathering-khans-of-tarkir

This is something completely strange for us to have taken a look at, but it’s still something we’re pretty fond of here, Magic The Gathering. Recently we were sent through a few of the latest decks to take a look at and to showcase. So we figured that it’d be best to throw together some videos to show the fans of Magic The Gathering just what to expect from the Khans of Tarkir set. In this set, we received two Khans of Tarkir decks, each one looking like it has a slightly different theme and build. We also received a box of booster packs, we’re not entirely sure why, but you can expect a bunch of cool cards to come … Continue reading

Australian Broadcasting Corporation, ABC, Shows Impartial Reporting On #GamerGate

ABC-IS-FUCKING-SHIT-HOUSE

Earlier this week, the Australian Broadcasting Corporation, or ABC, posted up a report on their official news programme airing on national television about GamerGate. Once again, the station has done very little actual research onto the issue, and has instead cherry-picked its interviewees on the topic, choosing only to talk to people that view GamerGate as a hate movement. For those unfamiliar with GamerGate, it’s a group of gamers tweeting under a the hashtag #GamerGate about corruption in video games journalism. One of the things that this segment can be known for is that it at least looks like it makes an attempt at trying to find out what GamerGate is about, by interviewing people that are involved with it. … Continue reading
