| || |If you read my review of Resident Evil 4, then I would ask you to forgive my whining. At the time, it was easier to control the orbit of Earth than to kill the first damn zombie in Resident Evil 1.
But since then, I finally tackled this grizzly beast of a game, and now we can knuckle down and review this monster of gaming history.
If you didn’t already know, Resident Evil is hailed as the huge revolutionary turning point of the survival horror genre, the genre being a not-exactly-popular blend of horror, Aztec-style puzzles, awful controls and extremely scarce ammo and health items. This is a time when a company as big as Capcom would actually release a game of this type before they were all outcast to the indie game market.
We’re here to celebrate the original 1996 Resident Evil, and I’m sure you’re asking, is its reputation deserved? Surely such an old game can’t really contend for the best in its field, even if it did popularise the style?

Hello there. I feel obliged to apologize for my lack of posting, but not obliged enough to offer up an excuse. Mind your own damn business, ya bunch of filthy stalkers...
More to the point, I feel obliged to share with you the TV shows that have been occupying most of my thoughts and life since I last posted. (However, to give you a full list would be insane, so I'm just going to share 2 with you for now because I am stingy sunuvvagun. (I will also try to hold back on the Americanisms as much as I darn tootin' can))

The Lord of the Rings is, to this day, my favourite film series. And the Return of the King is, to this day, my favourite film. So having the first Hobbit film be released this month, 9 years since our last venture to Middle Earth (8 years if you purchase the Extended Editions) was a pretty big deal for me. This review is coming quite late for several reasons; first I did not see the film straight away due to studies, and then a dreadful illness. And second, I needed to digest my opinions about the film, go over them a few times.
I’m glad I never expected the Hobbit to be better or more epic than any Rings film as, at least so far, it most certainly is not. Despite this, I do believe other critics are being a bit harsh on An Unexpected Journey and in this review I hope I’ll be able to give a fairer look at the movie. SPOILERS AHEAD.
Right now we're well into the third generation of predominantly 3D gaming platforms. Most recently, Ubisoft’s 2D sidescroller 'Rayman Origins' for the PS3 and Xbox 360 was given a surprising release on store shelves, neatly wrapped up in a box next to the more suitably dimensionally-unchallenged titles more associated with today’s booming games industry. It goes to show how side-lined the genre has become.
By the Nintendo GameCube and PlayStation 2 era, that would be last generation at the time of this article, the 2D sidescroller is a dying breed for high-end development, and would find more comfort on the 'indie' game roster of Steam, or more modest services including XBLA and PSN.
That said, before such established online services, any 2D sidescroller on the NGC or PS2 had an awful lot to prove to justify its existence. Viewtiful Joe is such a game, which is so stylish, and full of interesting game mechanics, it appears more than welcome on home consoles as late as 2005, and remains a gem in Capcom’s library.
Yes, late is the word. Many moons have passed since that venture of mine to the theatre to watch The Avengers.
Before Filmflux goes into hibernation for a week or two, I thought I would post my review of the Playstation Vita. Enjoy...There are some questions for which many answers can be given. Is there a God? What is love? Why didn’t they ride the eagles into Mordor? One I like to ask people is, when you hear ‘Sony’ what do you think? Of course you will have fanboys whom reply with ‘Better than Microsoft’, then you get your average Joe ‘Blu Ray discs’ and then there are quite a large group of people who will say ‘$$$’. Yes, I am referring to the ancient tradition of costly Sony products.
