Indie Game: The Art

Published by under Images,Video Games

(click to enlarge)

The last few years have seen an explosion of Indie games as audiences have accepted cheaper, simpler games that are executed well. No need for huge AAA campaigns or super HD graphics. Rather, it plays well and/or is hilarious, that’s good enough to fashion an Indie hit.

This artwork by Memoski takes nearly all the biggest success stories of the Indie scene and puts them in one place. If you can name them all, I will give you the key to Unreality (it’s a figurative key. and shaped like a Pokeball fused with a Disney Princess tiara).

A Gallery of DC Comics’ Bombshells

Published by under Comics,Images

Ant Lucia is one of the best artists around, and specializes in pin-up style art from decades past. They’ve done an entire series of pin-ups based on various DC heroines, and as you might expect, it makes for a pretty cool gallery. We don’t exactly paint these things on the side of warplanes anymore, but that doesn’t mean they wouldn’t look great hanging in your house somewhere.

Check out their site here for more, and see the entire series below: Continue Reading »

Hannibal Review: “Yakimono”

Published by under Reviews,Television

Hannibal - Season 2

Well, the mystery of what Hannibal Lecter was up to in the cliffhanger from last week’s episode had a hell of an answer.

What seemed like a possibly overconfident misstep from fiction’s most famous cannibal turned out to be something of a macabre masterstroke. Hannibal’s unconventional pastimes have been closer and closer to being discovered, but throwing the Miriam Lass wrench into the machine completely upended the course Jack was on.

It also brings us one of the more emotionally potent episodes of the season, and an hour of television that just lays out one ballsy reveal after another. The edges of Hannibal’s plan are beginning to come into view, and it’s gonna be a whopper.

Why The Protector 2 Is The Worst Movie of 2014, So Far

Published by under Editorials,Movies

prots

Let me start this off by saying I have always been huge Tony Jaa fan. To me, the original Ong Bak and The Protector are both brilliant movies, and very much modern martial arts masterpieces. So please understand, it is with a very heavy heart I write this right now. I am also a huge RZA fan (as you can see here), so I also mean no disrespect to him and his slow and somewhat impressive foray into martial art films so far.

That being said, you can like Tony Jaa and adore RZA, but that still doesn’t make this movie any less of a lumpy turd, sitting in your slipper, just waiting for you to slide your feet into it. I am here right now to kick your slipper away before you slide your naked foot into wet shit. Seriously. It’s that bad. In my opinion, The Protector 2 is the worst movie of 2014 so far (besides the Oldboy remake) and I don’t see anything changing that anytime soon.

Game of Thrones Review: “The Lion and the Rose”

Published by under Reviews,Television

The Purple Wedding has arrived.

I’m going to go ahead and ward everyone away who hasn’t watched last night’s episode yet, as there’s really no way to start this review without talking about the biggest event of the night, and what will likely be the biggest event of the season.

Are they gone?

Alright then. Continue Reading »

Discovering Free-to-Play Online Rhythm Game OSU

Published by under Editorials,Video Games

Yesterday, I discovered a tragedy as I browsed through the iOS App Store. I was hoping to find the game Tap Tap since I haven’t played it in the longest time. It was one of my favorite games when the iPhone and the iPod Touch were still in its early generations. However, I was puzzled upon noticing that there was no trace of it. I even typed Tapulous, the developer, in the search bar to no avail. Alas, my worst fears came true when I finally sough to find the truth. The company shut down along with all of its titles years before. Guitar Hero was gone too!

My friend knew about my plight and introduced to me a similar game called OSU that he and his other group of friends were obsessing about. OSU is a free-to-play online rhythm game that’s primarily available on PC platforms. You use your mouse instead of tapping or stepping on a dance pad. It reminded me of the Dance Dance Revolution PC emulators my friends had. I found them similar because other players can create their own levels and upload them online for others to download.

Is this something you might want to check out? Read on for more about OSU and what I thought.

Some Rather Gorgeous Disney Gender Swaps

Published by under Images,Movies

out_of_water_by_sakimichan-d79ulj8

Usually when we see “gender swap” art or cosplay, it’s girls taking over traditionally masculine roles. As fun as that may be, it’s interesting to see the other side as well. From regularly featured artist Sakimi Chan comes a series of rather amazing Disney swaps with BOTH genders represented for a change. I mean, there are a lot of princesses after all.

My favorite is probably Boyriel (Arian?) who appears to be straight out of a Final Fantasy game, but I also like Cruella Dudeville (I’m really pushing it with these). Swapped Beauty and the Beast may be the strangest, while flipped Nightmare Before Christmas is the most innovative. The entire series is below, and definitely worth a look.

The Morning Link: Five Animals That Look Like Cartoons Until They Kill You

“We all worry about packs of wolves, errant bears, and rogue sharks, even though this is technically the Internet and we should all be safe in here, so long as we never leave. But you shouldn’t ignore or underestimate Mother Nature, no matter how innocent and unassuming her avatar might be. If only because that’s exactly what she wants you to do.”

The Final Countdown: Secret Superpowers, Mad Men and Assassin’s Creed Movie

Go here to see sensory superpowers you didn’t know you had.

“Fiction loves to explore the crazy idea of humans having some kind of magical “sixth sense” (like in that Bruce Willis movie, The Fifth Element) but that’s kind of silly, considering how we barely use the senses we have.”

Get Ready for a New Web Series — WebCamelot!

Published by under Uncategorized

WebCamelot_poster1
(click for full size)

Y’all don’t know this, but I’ve been wanting to write this post for almost a year.

Production is wrapping up on the original comedy web series WebCamelot, a low-budget, independent venture between myself and a couple other (even more) talented fellas. And you can see it soon right here on Unreality!

I’ll save myself the trouble of coming up with a new way to describe this thing and just give you the official pitch:

“In a recent discovery that rocked the historical community, archeologists uncovered a cache of video blogs dating from the reign of ARTHUR PENDRAGON, KING OF CAMELOT.

Hardworking, unpaid interns have compiled these vlogs to create a behind-the-scenes account of life during that time. Looks like we’re going to have to rewrite the history books…  or at least, the interns will.

WebCamelot is a brand new comedy webseries that gets up close and personal with the intimate joys and embarrassing pains of the everyday lives of the citizens of Camelot.”

And it’s actually pretty good! I know, like what else am I going to say.

The trailer drops next Friday, so be looking for it. The episodes will follow soon after. There’ll be eight of ‘em, seasoned with some cool behind-the-scenes goodies for those interested in low-budget filmmaking and VFX and stuff like that.

Watch this space. Spread the word.

Silicon Valley vs. Girls: A Show Comparison

Published by under Television

SiliconValleyCastphoto

Silicon Valley aired this weekend, fulfilling all of my Martin Starr dreams.  The internet response to the show was varied, with some loving how accurately life in the Valley is portrayed and other claiming it’s another vapid show about unlikeable people.  A vapid show about unlikeable people you say?  That sounds to me like Girls.  And since these shows share a common group of haters, I thought I’d break down what both have to offer.
