A Fair and Balanced Review of Super Columbine Massacre RPG

30 03 2007

Despite my hesitation of using the term fair and balanced after the term has been maligned by faux news, I went ahead with it. I went ahead with it because it is the best description of the way I will attempt to review Super Columbine Massacre Rpg. This is a challenging game, one that makes you think about your own prejudices and irrational thoughts about people. It is certainly a work of art, although its certainly not of the utmost quality. It achieves what I believe it was meant to; to renew peoples tendency for thinking about school shootings and what they tell us about our society, the way we treat people, and how we think.

The camera angle perspective of the whole game besides battles is overhead 2D. The game starts with you in your room, than going to your basement. You are Eric. Your accomplice Dylan meets you in the basement. Throughout the game you interact with items that tell your more about the event or give you some insight into the mind of the killers. You watch conversations happen that show some of the killers motives.

The rest of the gameplay is concerned with planting the car bombs, then going through the school and dispatching a great number of different school stereotypes. You run through the school killing jocks, preps, nerds, geeky girls, religious guys, outcasts, etc, with a standard rpg interface and an arsenal of different guns. As you kill these characters you start to feel your mind slip into what might have been the mindstate of these social outcasts who lashed out at everyone. It was as thought they were fighting an enemy in a Videogame. You learn that they did not regard themselves as crazy, they simply thought they were doing what was neccessary. The game also manages to give a perspective of the kind of pressure and reassurance they gave each other toward completing the goal they had set in motion.

The gameplay is not fantastic. The graphics are only barely passable. The writing has no flaws though, as far as I could tell, and the story is accurate and interesting. I would recommend to anyone who thinks they are ready to think about the psychological mindset behind this kind of school shooting. This is not a game you play because you are looking for a great gaming experience. It is worth the download for anyone, however, who is interested in the events, and believes they would enjoy an artistic interpretation of it.

I also think you should check out this Q&A about the game.

Denzel Washington is Rubin Carter, THE HURRICANE

22 03 2007

The Hurricane - Denzel

IS

The Hurricane

I have to admit, I have somewhat of a bias in favor of this man. Denzel Washington is, in my opinion, one of the most moving and powerful actors of our time. Perhaps my review of this movie will be affected by this sentiment. I feel however, that it deserves every word of the praise I am about to bestow upon it.

The hurricane is an emotionally charged true story of a man, Rubin Carter, who was wrongly sentenced to life in prison. He was sentenced, for a murderous rampage at a bar, which he did not commit. There are parts that are fictionalized. Certain characters are composites. Regardless, the movie is brilliantly executed. It tells the story of a man who loses hope in his own release but regains his hope, through the help of a boy named Lezra.

The character of Lezra is a key part of this story. He is from Brooklyn, but the audience is introduced to him as he lives with a group of canadians who thought he was bright and felt the urge to help him with his future, taking him in and teaching him how to read and write. The first book Lezra reads is a book called The Sixteenth Round, from Number 1 contender to #45472. The story is inspirational to him, and Rubin Carter becomes a sort of mentor for Lezra. It is not long before he enters into correspondence with Rubin, and eventually meets him.

I will not reveal any more about the plot, but suffice to say, the lives of these people become intertwined, and they become something like a family. To me, that is the most moving truth in this movie, more so then the scenes of anger from false imprisonment, of solidarity and strength against great adversity. It is the message that hate imprisons, but love will set you free.

The director is careful here, to keep the movie flowing with exceptional timing, and he succeeded brilliantly, because the tears will more than likely also be flowing down your cheek if you like this sort of movie. The story is simply present as a self evident truth, it doesn’t push emotions down your throat, it tells a story with such success that you cant help but feel a sense of compassion and joy at the journey of these people.

It doesn’t hurt that all the actors here do a wonderful job with the well written script. You can sense the indignation of Rubin at his imprisonment. You can see the respect and gratitude in the eyes of Lezra that he was given such a courageous  mentor. Denzel Washington is absolutely riveting throughout in his portrayal of a man whose spirit will be not be defeated.

Having spent some time in a cell myself, I can only imagine what spending 20 years in prison would be like. I can personally attest to the accuracy of the psychological condition of confronting yourself this kind of situation puts you in. It’s a case of what can not kill you making you strong.

Rubin Carters story is inspiring, this movie is a wonderful feature film adaptation of his story, and I recommend everyone see it. However, I also am aware of the controversy regarding Rubin Carter. This movie is seen by many as hiding the truth. Some feel that Rubin Carter really was guilty, and that his book, and this movie were written to hide the truth.

You can read about this here. I read through these accusations, and was not convinced in any way that Rubin Carter was guilty of murder because of them. These accusations seem to be more about defamation of character and finding a motive, than actual evidence against Rubin Carter.

I believe this is a case of people simply siding with the skeptic simply because they want to be known as seekers of truth. No one wants to feel victimized by believing in an inspirational story that could be all lies, so I think people believe these shallow accusations simply because they would rather not deal with cognitive dissonance of not being sure.

The real story is, we can not prove beyond a shadow of a doubt either way. However, Rubin Carter is out of prison, he has inspired many, and he is contributing to society in a meaningful way as a motivational speaker. I would say that he has been rehabilitated, and isn’t that what prison is for?

This Cal Deal guy, behind this so called revelation ,about the “truth” of Rubin Carter, seems to be promoting a ploy for publicity. A rather successful attempt at becoming famous as a Trial Exhibit Consuleing and Design expert. There is no better way to become a rich trial consultant than by making a public attack on both Rubin Carter and Denzel Washington. He even went as far as attempting to make sure that Denzel did not get an oscar, sponsoring No Oscar protests.

Basically, fuck him. Hes just a bullshitter, out to make himself rich by the defemation of others.

This movie was outstanding. Denzel Washington is an outstanding actor. We you believe the events happened as shown in this movie is irrelevant. See this movie, goddamn it.

Until next time.

Johnny Blaze, out.





Johnny Blaze Weighs in on Game Informer

19 03 2007

Game informer isn’t by any means a terribly written publication. It also has achieved great popularity. So too, however, have taco bell and mcdonalds. They taste good, and they fill you up. Relying on those foods to live however, would make you fat and unhealthy, because they have very few nutrients.

Game Informer will not make you fat or unhealthy. However, relying on it as your primary source of information about gaming, is going to lead you away from a lot of games that you might otherwise get great enjoyment from.

I also have purchased game informer a few times, because a preview or news article they featured caught my eye. I will not dispute that they are obviously doing something right. However, primarily I think what they are doing right is encapsulating mainstream opinion.

A lot of game informers popularity, is tied into the distribution deal they have with Gamestop and EB. I respect their success as a business. However, I feel that publications like Game Informer contribute to the current state, of interactive entertainment not being viewed as a serious art form.

Perhaps they too will change as games start to be taken more seriously as an art. I predict that unless they do change, they will fail as many magazines have before, and be replaced by magazines which take inspiration from the now defunct Next Generation, or the currently successful, Play magazine.





208 Thousand Visitors by 2008

16 03 2007

I have very big plans for this blog. I would like to work full time dissecting and discussing all my favorite forms of entertainment. To make this happen, I have set a goal. This site will get 208,000 visitors by the year 2008. I have 9 months to make this happen.

To achieve this level of traffic in such a short time, I know I need to offer something of great value. To do this, I am going to be updating at least once a day, so there is always something new to see.  Even on weekends.

I will also be holding contests in the future, giving out prizes to people for helping to promote the site. The prizes will include games, movies, and books. In addition I will be holding contests that do not involve promotion, for instance video game trivia and score contests.

I know its going to involve a tremendous amount of hard work and dedication to achieve this dream, but I know it will happen because I believe in what I am doing, and I truly want it. I hope to win the support of everyone who reads this blog. Even if you do not agree with the things I say, please help me and my friends realize a dream to really do something with our lives, something not a lot of people do in the city of New Bedford, Massachusetts.

I’m not going to ask for donations, or attempt to make a living in anyway from this blog, until I achieve my goal of 208,000 visitors. What I ask for from my readers, is that you take a few moments of your day to make a blog post on Myspace about us, to post in your own blog about us, to tell your friends and family about us. We just want to live the dream. Help us do it.

If that doesn’t motivate you, you probably can’t say no to Jessica Alba.

… She will shoot you. If you don’t send all your friends to no limits entertainment.





Welcome To The Sho(Introduction on Sho)

14 03 2007

shoninja

My name is Sho. I like to keep things short, but sweet. My primary interests are things of the past… A.K.A Retro. I will be reviewing Retro Video Games, Movies, Music, and books. I like to give my opinion on things, but I do not cover my ears and eyes to others opinions. I will make sure to tell you not only the positives, but also the negatives on all of the things I review.

Also to be noted, I DO NOT write reviews on things unknown to me (what that means is I do not write reviews on games I have not played, or movies I have not watched etc). I Hope you enjoy not only my reviews but also the other reviews, and be respectful of others opinions.

Now, to add some more light on my actual tastes. My videogame interests are very broad.  I do play everything, and on occassion i will play some next-gen games. However, my favorite game systems of all time would be the Turbografx-16, Sega Saturn, and the 3DO, in that order. I am also a very big PC gamer, and I love to play retro stuff for the PC. Some examples would be classic RPGs like Baldur’s Gate, Halls Of The Dead, and Lands Of Lore 1-3. My favorite game genres are Horror, Survival, Puzzle (not like tetris, more along the lines of Myst), and obviously anything now considered Retro.

I do not limit myself to just games. As for Movies, I like classic stuff.  Some of my favorites are 1950’s-1980’s horror films (independent and mainstream). My favorite movie of all time is The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, the original version.  My music is again, now considered retro.  Anything from 1960’s-1980’s Metal, and I also enjoy new things. I don’t just listen to metal, I am just telling you my prefrence.  I actually listen to alot of music. All types, and from all over the world. Another one of my preferences would be Finnish Power Metal/Speed Metal because I believe they do it the best, and alot of what I listen to comes out of Finland.

My interest in books has decreased, I will not lie, and it is not because their are not good books out there. I just can’t seem to get into any nowadays, so I stay with older things. I enjoy Horror/Mystery books the most, but i do also love to read fantasy stuff, and just anything that is interesting. My favorite author is Edgar Allen Poe, and my favorite book from him would be The Tell-Tale Heart.

I hope you have enjoyed this and I look forward to writing reviews and my thoughts on all different forms of entertainment, very soon. If you know anything that you think might spark my interest, even books, please contact me. Also, feel free to leave comments.
