GameGadget – “Go Anywhere – Play Everything”

Is this the iPod for retro gamers? Introducing The GameGadget, the latest handheld games console vying for a slice of the mobile games market.

You might look at the GameGadget and think “oh it’s just another gameboy-esque device in an already over subscribed market”, but let me explain why this console might actually have the potential to make some real waves.

Running a version of the Linux operating system, the main idea is to create an open-source games community, where games can be created and sold through a central marketplace. Designed to support 16 & 32 bit games and with an expandable SD Card slot, there is the potential for you to carry around 1,000′s of retro and classic games in your pocket.

The GameGadget is available on launch (30/03/2012) at the price of £74.99.  Games will range from £1.49 to £1.99 and packs 10-15 games for just tenner.

As yet it’s hard to say how much of a success it will be, and will rely heavily on how fast the community grows, but it has the potential to really shake up the mobile gaming scene.

The Return of the 90′s

This month has seen the announcement for the return of the Bill & Ted Film Series and TV Show Red Dwarf. Keanu Reeves himself broke the Bill & Ted news, confirming that writing of the script was in progress. Red Dwarf has been confirmed to hit TV screens in November, with the majority of the original cast to return. Both enjoyed the majority of their success in the 1990′s and have achieved a cult status associated with the decade. This got myself (and most of the office) reminiscing about all the great and not so great moments and trends from the 90′s, it wasn’t long before we realised that a lot of things from the decade are making a come-back soon or have already within the last few years.

So what else is there to look forward to help continue this 90′s revival….

Games:

Duke Nukem- Duke Nukem Forever: “The alien hordes are back and only Duke can save the world, again”. The greatly anticipated and delayed games series returns this year, with outings on the PS3, XBox 360 and PC. Expect outrageous story-lines and over the top weaponry, this will be a hit.

 

Mortal Kombat- Mortal Kombat: The Arcade Fighting sensation, released in 1992, returns on PS3 & XBox 360 in what is being billed as ‘a return to the series’ roots’. More brutal than ever, perhaps not every-one’s cup of tea but hard to ignore for any serious gamer.

 

Music:

Blur- Blur: If one word could sum up the 90′s musically it would be – ‘Britpop’. Along with Oasis, Blur were the undisputed (let the arguments begin again) Kings of the genre. Whilst there is no concrete information it is very strongly rumoured that Blur will release a full studio album this year, the first time all 4 original members have recorded together in over a decade!

Blink 182- Blink 182: No date for their new album either but some strong words from band members. Tom DeLonge – the record will “absolutely” be out in time for the U.K. tour this summer and that Blink “will not tour if there is no record”. Travis Barker – “I think we’ll turn in our album in June or July, honestly… It’s coming close, to the point where these are completed songs and they’re not going to change.

Film/TV:

Rock Chips- Rock & Chips: Whilst it’s common place for films to get a prequel, it is slightly rarer for TV shows. Rock & Chips began airing last year, it portrays the childhood of one Derek ‘Del-Boy’ Trotter before he became the lovable wheeler-dealer we grew to love in the show Only Fools and Horses. 2 episodes have already aired to much acclaim and a third is due on the 24th April.

Scream- Scream 4: Back in 1996 we were all taught how to survive if you ever wound up in a horror movie. Two sequels closely followed with great box office success. The Trilogy poked fun at the linear and predictable story-lines that many previous slasher films had followed. This weekend sees the U.K. release of the franchise’s 4th film, whether there is still any innovation to been found in the series remains to be seen, but something tells me it will be worth a watch.

 

So is the 1990′s revival well and truly on? I hope so, bring back Wayne’s World, Will Smith’s rap career and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles too!

Comment below and tell us what you want to see return from this glorious decade.

 

The Girl Who Kicked The Hornet’s Nest

The Girl Who Kicked The Hornet’s Nest is the concluding film in the infamous trilogy by Stieg Larsson.

Lisbeth Salander lies in critical condition, a bullet wound to her head, in the intensive care unit of a Swedish city hospital. She’s fighting for her life in more ways than one: if and when she recovers, she’ll be taken back to Stockholm to stand trial for three murders. With the help of her friend, journalist Mikael Blomkvist, she must prove her innocence; help uncover those in authority who have allowed the vulnerable to suffer abuse and violence, and plot revenge against the man who tried to kill her, and the corrupt government institutions that very nearly destroyed her.

A bleak yet moving story, it grips you from start to finish. Is there a sting in the tail? Some have said the trilogy reaches a conclusion, others that it has a “to be continued ” flavour, which would make sense as Larssen intended to write more than three books. Order now and make up your own mind.

You can pre-order The Girl Who Kicked The Hornet’s Nest on Dvd and Bluray now.
Release is scheduled for 4th April 2011.

I don’t remember Ron Weasley looking like this! Ron looks hot in new Harry Potter 7 Posters

Remember the first Harry Potter movie? Everyone looked so cute, but, let’s face it, on a scale of cuteness, Rupert Grint as Ron Weasley was more of your big eared, ginger haired, awwwww poor boy, kind of cute compared to Daniel Radcliffe and Emma Watson’s, so cute you could take them home kind of cute.

Rupert Grint looks hot as Ron Weasley in the new Harry Potter 7 movie postersBut oh, how the tables have turned though.

The latest posters for Harry Potter 7 have been released and Rupert is looking hotter than front-enhancing male underwear. D

Poor Daniel doesn’t come anywhere near as close on the twilight-esque dark broody handsomeness that our new heartthrob Rupert is able to pull off. Even gorgeous Emma Watson doesn’t come out of the grungy dark look photos as well as she usually does leaving Ron looking like the new boy man to watch.

The only other character that can shake a stick at his brooding bad boy good lucks is Snape! Yes Snape. It seems that no one wants cute good guys these days. Sine we all went vampire story mad for Twilight, it’s the darker underdog characters that are winning the girls and the boys hearts.

Perhaps it’s time for Harry to update those glasses, but perhaps that’s an unacceptable comment today, on John Lennon’s 70th birthday!
