VANQUISH: The Oath of Brothers: App Attack

Posted by Grey

Dynasty Warriors, anyone?

Well if you're thinking a cheaper, grainier, powered down version of Dynasty Warrior, no, you won't get it here. At first glance, this seemed to be a game with some really simple gameplay with an art direction that lent some much-needed credentials to it. We'll see.

All I can say is, whenever a game based on my favorite history lessons is created with totally free creative license, despite the mentality that this has no morale whatsoever, is worth some attention.

Check out the very cool trailer below, and more details.

However, Cao Cao gives Guan Yu a clear passage to travel as he is well aware that none of his generals can defeat him.

Guan Yu begins his journey to reunite with his sworn brother, Liu Bei. Along the 5 passes, he encounters 6 generals. The generals of Cao Cao refuse to clear the way for Guan Yu. Infuriated, Guan Yu kills all of them. However, he soon realizes that Liu Bei was no longer in Yuan’s territory and had left for Runan. Guan Yu and his party then make their long journey back and finally reunite with Liu Bei and Zhang Fei.

The Dark Knight Vs. The Man Of Steel: The Score

Posted by Grey

POW!!! Take that, Superman.

The never-ending battle royale between two of the greatest comic characters-turned-pop culture icons continues.


Just last Monday (February 22nd), Action Comics #1, first published in 1938 and featuring the debut of Superman, were sold at the price of $1 million, more than tripling the previous comic book sales record set last year.

Not one to be outdone, Batman struck back with Detective Comics #27, which went under the hammer for a record $1.075 million, at Heritage Auction Galleries in New York. The comic were first published in 1939 for ten cents and featuring the Dark Knight's first appearance.

Meanwhile over at the comic-to-movie scene, David Goyer, the writer of The Dark Knight, was commissioned to take over the writing chore of the long-rumored next installment of the Superman franchise, along with Christopher Nolan (who have already been asked to be the guardian angel to the Superman project)'s brother, Jonathan Nolan, who also happened to be the co-writer of The Dark Knight. What's even more outrageous, would be the rumor that Jonathan have been asked to helm the project.

Regardless of the credibility of the rumors, it is obvious that Warner Bros and DC would want to emulate the success of the rejuvenated Batman franchise on the Superman franchise.

So score two for Batman.

Burn! Undertaker, Burn!

Posted by The Meme Initiative

And no, we don't mean it figuratively.

As if losing his World Heavyweight title to Chris Jericho isn't bad enough, the Undertaker was actually engulfed in flames while making his usually painfully slow though goddamn grand entrance in last Sunday's Elimination Chamber's eponymous main event at the Scottrade Center in St. Louis, Missouri.



Details courtesy of Sports Illustrated.

The Undertaker, one of the most popular pro wrestlers, enters the ring as fireballs explode and music blares. On Sunday, a fireball went off too close to him.

"It was a mistiming," Zimmerman said. "He threw his jacket down. It kind of singed is the best way to describe it."

The wrestler was evaluated by a ringside physician. Zimmerman said he suffered a chest injury that looked like a bad sunburn. He was cleared to wrestle and performed for 25 minutes.

It wasn't clear if the audience knew Calaway was really on fire or if it was part of his act. The Undertaker has notoriously disappeared from WWE for months at a time, often under the presumption that he is dead, only to mysteriously return to the ring to seek vengeance against those who have wronged him.

The pyrotechnics are operated by a company that contracts with WWE, not the Scottrade Center. Zimmerman declined to identify the company. A Scottrade spokeswoman did not immediately return phone messages seeking comment.

WWE is investigating to determine how the mishap occurred. St. Louis fire officials also are investigating but declined to comment. Bill Zieres, deputy chief of the Missouri State Fire Marshal's Office, said state officials have not been contacted.


Initially reported as minor injuries, the credible Wrestling Observer has later reported that The Undertaker gets burned incident resulted in first- and second-degree burns on his chest and neck from Sunday night's incident. No wonder he was wearing his other entrance robe on RAW the following night.

Or is this a lead-in to a plot of which Kane is conspiring against his brother, yet again?

Stephen Chow Vs. Jack Black

Posted by Grey

Prepare yourself for the ultimate Bruce Lee tribute.

Generally taken with more than a pinch of salt by most major online movie magazine such as Empire and Slash Film due to the fact that ChannelNews Asia's unspecified Hong Kong Sources aren't entirely clear, the rumour out there is the long anticipated next project of Hong Kong actor, comedian, screenwriter, film director and producer, Stephen Chow's next project, following 2004's Kung Fu Hustle and the rather lackluster CJ7, might just be a ultimate homage to Bruce Lee. In fact this could just be the most literal tribute Stephen Chow (a self-confessed Bruce Lee fanatic) will ever make: A remake of Bruce Lee's classic, 1972's Way of the Dragon (猛龍過江), written and directed by Chow himself.

A brief plot synopsis of the film, courtesy of the aforementioned ChannelNews Asia article:

"Tai Chi" will be based on the 1972 film "Way of the Dragon" starring Bruce Lee. It tells the story of a Chinese migrant in the US (played by Chow) who works as a dishwasher in Chinatown and hides his skills as a Tai Chi master. He is forced to stand up to gangsters who oppress his fellow migrants and later gets invited to start martial arts schools to share his knowledge.

While Empire and Slash Film'sceptism over the credibility of the news are perfectly understandable, a further insight into major entertainment tabloid in both mainland China and Hong Kong proved Channel News Asia's source with the heavy coverage of the news all over the region. Accordingly, the local media had contacted Chow to verify the news and while Chow refused to confirm any of what was earlier reported, he did not made any efforts to refute them, which should be a clear indication that the project could just be a go as reported. The general speculation is that Chow, due to contractual obligation, is not allowed to reveal more details.

Reportedly a co-production between China Film Group Corporation and an unnamed American film company, "Tai Chi" has a budget of US$60 million and will be a full feature film entirely shot in English. It has been heavily implied in most media reports that Chow had worked incessantly on the script, repeatedly refining it for years, as a results costing Columbia Pictures to pulled back from the project after prolonged delays.

Now, with Jack Black and Anne Hathaway reportedly signing to work on the film, the rumoured feature is now the next-big-thing to watched out for and could well worth Stephen Chow's aborted tenure on The Green Hornet, a role which Jay Chow was called on to fill in. All we are hoping for would be that both Stephen Chow and Jack Black could re-enact the classic showdown between Bruce Lee and Chuck Norris (then relatively unknown) inside the Colosseum. I know it sounds crazy for Jack Black to stand in for the almighty Chuck Norris (he can divide by zero, among others), but it would make the perfect wacky sense in the truest sense of the word.

Let's keep an eye on this one.

Street Fighter IV Coming To iPhone In March

Posted by Grey

Just when you thought you have seen it all on the iPhone. Prepare for the one classic game port once thought impossible.

Yes, it's Street Fighter IV… on the iPhone!

With a scheduled release date sometime this March, Capcom is doing what once thought impossible, bringing the mother of all fighting games to Apple's handhelds. While most fans remained sceptical over the virtual joystick pad that aims to emulate the arcade joystick experience, Capcom is painstakingly ensuring that the gameplay for this port will not be compromised, to the extent that the new art direction for Street Fighter IV will also be featured, though in an understandably scaled down version.

Street Fighter IV for the iPhone will also be featuring Multiplayer Mode via Bluetooth, along with a training mode by the name of Dojo Mode.

Check below for more images, and for more details, check out IGN's extensive coverage.

Just Cause 2: Anatomy Of A Stunt Trailer Series

Posted by Grey

With these trailers, I'm already regretting the decision to categorize Just Cause 2 in the "Lucky Seven To-Watch-For List" of the Top 13 Most Anticipated Games of 2010 entry earlier.

The original Just Cause was a rip-roaring experience, designed to sent that excruciating short bursts of gaming experience into hyper drive. And for all it seemed, the sequel aims to perfect that very same execution with an insanely high-octane emphasis on the outlandish stunts that fans had grown accustomed to. Well, at least this is the case, according to these two new trailers in the new trailer series, Anatomy Of A Stunt.

The first video displays the numerous ways to die for all puny human found on the game, via our trusty and handy, good ol' Gravity. Dumping a car on your hated nemesis? Hell yeah.



The second one here featured a crazy-assed drive-by stunt with an absolutely pointless nuance.



Great, light-hearted fun, nonetheless.

Die Hard. Over And Over Again: Undead Monday

Posted by Grey

Realistically, everyone. Forget the entire Die Hard tetralogy. What's gonna happened to John "Yippee-ki-yay, motherfucker" McClane after the traumatizing experience he had at Nakatomi Plaza in 1988?

Derek Chatwood, AKA The Searcher, is a Video Game Designer and Illustrator. With his photostream at Flickr, he has provided a body of work ensuring the enticing, illustrating entertaining, sometimes surrealistically astonishing pieces. What better stuff for a dead end Monday? For starters, here's one complete with his signature unique caption:

John McClane was losing his mind.

Since the incident at Nakatomi Plaza, his life hasn't been the same. After the reporters and the news cameras left, it wouldn't stop. The incidents. When he took his wife and daughter camping, John noticed something strange about the campers up the trail. They turned out to be eco-terrorists hatching a plot to poison the forest with radiation (except they really turned out to be working for a real estate mogul trying to buy up the land). John had to fight for his life. Again.

Three days later on Career Day, a group of white supremacists took over his daughter's school, threatening to release the Plague (except really it was for nazi gold buried under the gym.) A week after that, a street gang seized his wife's Fun Run For Breast Cancer (princess in exile). McClane didn't want to leave the house anymore, and started to drink again.

His daughter's birthday was coming up, and he couldn't let her down. Terrified, he ventured to the mall anyway. As soon as he spotted the prison tattoos on the guy at Orange Julius, he knew it was a mistake. He tried to look away, only to see another felon at Sbarro. And another at Panda Express. When they started nodding to each other, he knew whatever their plan (hold the mall hostage for ransom), and whatever they really wanted (diamond encrusted chihuahua sculpture), it was about to hit the fan.

John McClane was losing his mind.


WWE Elimination Chamber Preview

Posted by Grey

No more No Way Out.

No Way Out, being the last WWE Pay-Per-View (PPV) right before the big one and therefore enjoying the status of traditionally one of the most surprise-filled game changing event of the year, has gotten a new name despite having the same concept.

Get ready for a wild ride with this one.


Being one of the most short-lived event title (created in 1998, rebranded in 2000, and now dead in the water), WWE No Way Out, as compared to the other filler PPVs, has always had a special place in the hearts of fans. While that special place is by no means equivalent to the "Big Four" (WrestleMania, SummerSlam, Royal Rumble, and Survivor Series, of which demise was recently reported), it stands head over heel when compared to the other events.

For the simple reason that it served as the last PPV before WrestleMania, and as a result became the perfect place for scripted title-changes, last-minute storyline amendment, and the central resting point on the Road To WrestleMania. The Royal Rumble did its part of informing us who will be headlining WrestleMania, and with No Way Out, we can have a greater glimpse of things to come. Just to point out some of the more illuminant examples of great No Way Out moment due to the aforementioned factors:

1) 2000: The hellacious Hell In A Cell where Triple H battled Cactus Jack and successfully defended his WWF Championship.
Significance: This is probably one of the most brutal HIAC match ever, raising the bar and carving its reputation right up there in the violence meter. A reputation utterly soiled in this PG days.

Multiple steel chair shots? Check.

2x4 with barbed wire wrapped all around it and set on fire? Yeah, bloody check.

Wall of cell literally ripped open by repeated shots from ring steps? A double whammy bloody check. That's one move you don't get to see to see these days.

2) 2002: Chris Jericho defeated Steve Austin and continuing his Undisputed Championship reign,
Significance: Y2J managed to pull through with his second PPV title defence only after run-in interference from the returning New World Order (nWo) that was "unleashed" by Vince McMahon. The nWo, incidentally the abbreviation of No Way Out. The incident served as a lead-in to the Austin/Hall bout at WrestleMania X8.

3) 2004: Eddie Guerrero defeated Brock Lesnar for his first ever WWE Championship reign.
Significance: Eddie Guerrero's first and sadly, only World Championship reign kicked off right here, parts in due to Goldberg's run-in interference attacking Lesnar, leading to the much-anticipated, but ultimately disappointing match-up between the two powerhouse in WrestleMania XX.

Nostalgia aside, No Way Out has evolved since 2008, predominantly featuring Elimination Chamber Matches to suit its PPV title. This year, in keeping with WWE's renewed initiative to provide its PPVs with an unique (so to say) gimmick and a total facelift, the PPV title officially changed. If you think this does not made any sense, wait till you see what other new PPV title we have for the rest of the year:

Wild Card, replacing Judgment Day in May, 2010
Fatal Four Way, replacing the The Bash in June, 2010
Money in the Bank (!), replacing Night of Champions in July, 2010

The horror. By the way, the reason why this Elimination Chamber taking over the No Way Out concept suits WWE so fine? Just so that they can afford to make supposed reputable superstars to lose their title in a relatively strong way that will not negate their momentum, and they can have a pick of five other potential champion, greatly helping out their convenient scripting.

Anyway, The Daily Zombie's WWE PPV Prediction for Royal Rumble was a blast with an almost perfect hit rate with the exception that Edge was the fourth choice we pick for winning the rumble. Not bad at all. Let's check out this upcoming one.


World Heavyweight Championship Elimination Chamber Match

CM Punk, John Morrison, Rey Mysterio, R-Truth, Chris Jericho and The Undertaker, the defending champion.

The reason why this match is getting the top spot here at The Daily Zombie is the simple fact that it just plain out being better booked, with better myriad of wrestlers involved, and quite simply, better wrestler at work here. Employing what we mentioned earlier regarding the theory of making champions losing their titles but still looking good to this match here made perfect sense. The Undertaker will lose his title here, what with all the writings on the wall with regard to Y2J completing his feud with the returning Edge. In the meantime, CM Punk, in his increasingly enjoyable role of a heel saviour, is poised to have a major feud with Mysterio; while R-Truth has a new student at hand, with his role at WWE NXT. One interesting point to note: Morrison's worked injury might be a lead-in for Shawn Michaels (forcing his way in to face Taker) or Batista (who has no match at the PPV, as yet, and thus could be cashing out some promise from Vince McMahon for being his lackey).

Either way, my money is on...

Predicted Winner: Chris Jericho
Finally, it's good old Y2J's turn in the limelight. Appropriate reward for one of the most consistently great performer with an equally great work rate. Just like what he said in his promo: The best at what he does. A few hiccups here and there expected, though.

WWE Championship Elimination Chamber Match

John Cena, Triple H, Randy Orton, Ted DiBiase, Kofi Kingston and Sheamus, the defending champion.

The more unpredictable match of the two main events. Cena is almost guaranteed a cross-brand match-up with Batista, and likewise for Orton and Dibiase (with probably Cody Rhodes thrown for a Legacy fiesta). Kingston, whom is simply put, not in the world title picture, as yet, is here to fill in the number. Which leaves us with Triple H and his current BFF and incidentally, the current champion, Sheamus.

The quality of this match should be just fine, and will no doubt be better than last year's RAW bout (what the hell was Mike Knox doing there?).

Predicted Winner: Sheamus
It seems almost fixed that Triple H will be facing his BFF in the upcoming WrestleMania XXVI. And it will only make more sense if he were to do it as a challenger, instead of the champion.

Intercontinental Champion Drew McIntyre vs. Kane

An absolute fill-in match, which can serve as the perfect toilet break, if not for the next match-up.

Predicted Winner: Drew McIntyre
It's time for the Big Red Machine to... job. Again.

Gail Kim vs. Maryse (Divas Championship Match)

Yes, the real perfect toilet break. Gail Kim certainly has her moves, but too bad, it's the WWE here. Maryse is suitably villainous enough to play the heel champion for others to challenge, but with both the Women Titles being such total throw-aways that they had not been featured on WrestleManias for some time, there's really no room for any half-baked speculations.

Predicted Winners: Maryse
Because the name is shorter... Er, no, because it made more storyline-sense.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------



The Rundown

With the conspicuously few matches lined up, be prepared for a few surprises as this one go along. The continuation of the Road To WrestleMania XXVI is likely to be chockful of intriguing twists and turns. Don't miss out on this one. Despite the terrible title.

Meanwhile, I have a theory on why The Miz is "mentoring" Bryan Danielson over at WWE NXT. In fact, it's such a no-brainer that I won't call it a theory. More on that one later.

Machete Preview

Posted by Grey

The much-talked-about Grindhouse'spin-off, Machete, might just be a go, after all, and with an unexpectedly stronger dose of star power.

An expansion of the fake trailer Robert Rodriguez made for the 2007 film Grindhouse, along with Rodriguez's very own Planet Terror, the film, poised to be released in late 2010, will featured bad-ass character actor Danny Trejo in his first leading role as the title character. While the aforementioned fake trailer also featured Jeff Fahey, Cheech Marin, and a couple of probable porn stars, the expansion will have a star-studded roster with Jessica Alba (!), Lindsay Lohan, Rose McGowan, Michelle Rodriguez, Steven Seagal (!!) and Robert DeNiro (!!!). Yes, Steven fucking Seagal in a major film release. Rejoice, yer pathetic.

All fanboys everywhere are wondering about will be if Lindsay Lohan will indeed be posing nude as per her character's requirement as in the trailer. Accordingly, she is slated to play Jeff Fahey's antagonist character's daughter, who was in a steamy topless scene along with the character's mom, together with the 65-year-old Trejo. Check out the trailer to refresh your memory on this one.



Either way, this is one wild film to watch out for this year.


Warren Ellis' Ignition City Collected

Posted by Grey

Steampunk. Warren Ellis' style.

A cross between the space opera of the Flash Gordon / Buck Rogers serials, the HBO series Deadwood, the Steampunk band Abney Park, the 1927 classic silent film Metropolis, the Berlin Tegel Airport, Ray Bradbury's short story "Rocket Summer", Alan Moore's The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, and Ellis' very own Ministry of Space comic, Ignition City has a distinctively precise description:

Warren Ellis does Steampunk.

And that, my fellow zombies, is a good thing. The collected trade paperback volume one is out now.



Damien Rice Does Hallelujah

Posted by Grey

A moment of melancholy, please.

Recently covered as a duet by Justin Timberlake and Matt Morris, along with Charlie Sexton on guitar, for the international telethon for the relief efforts following the 2010 Haiti earthquake. Hallelujah, could just be the most-covered Leonard Cohen song. So much so that Cohen himself would like a break for the track from all this over-exposure.

While the late, great Jeff Buckley's spine-tingling melancholic 1994 cover will always be the definitive version to yours truly, Damien Rice put up a remarkable job here.

God Of War: The Comic

Posted by Grey

The rip-roaring saga of Kratos continues, in the pages of this six-issues limited series from DC/Wildstorm.

Published in time to coincide with the release of the much-anticipated PlayStation 3 exclusive, God Of War III, the God Of War comic series will be written by veteran writer, Marv Wolfman, with art from Andrea Sorrentino.

While it is expected that the six-issues limited series will be covering the entire tragic origins of Kratos in all its brutal glory, the penultimate chapter of Kratos' ending battle with the gods of the Greek pantheon is likely to be featured as well.

One thing that kind of bother me, though. The hefty price tag of $3.99 seemed to be exceptionally disturbing and true enough, the reason why I have no intention to follow this one.

For the fans, the title will be released on March 31st, conveniently after you finished the game. A preview of it is available at IGN.

Plants Vs. Zombies: Zombie (App Attack) Of The Week

Posted by Grey

Forget all the other Zombie-Killing-Survival-Horror-Action-Adventure games that App Store churn out on a daily basis (yes, even this one), the ultimate zombie killing experience might just be not that horror, after all.

Get ready to soil your plants once again.


Nominated for "Casual Game of the Year" and "Outstanding Achievement in Game Design" for the Interactive Achievement Awards from the Academy of Interactive Arts & Sciences as well as "Best Game Design", "Innovation", and "Best Download Game" for the Game Developers Choice Awards, the critically acclaimed Plants vs. Zombies, incidentally the fastest-selling video game created by PopCap Games, is finally coming to iPhone.

Likewise as its equally acclaimed and addictive brother from PopCap Games, Peggle, the game is almost a shoo-in for the iPhone, both in terms of its technical aspects and the casual gameplay style.



At $2.99, it's almost a steal with this one.

The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus Preview

Posted by Grey

Well, we have a contender for the much-coveted "Movie Poster Of The Year" (I know, this was released in the UK and America in late 2009, but we only got it here in Singapore now).

While there is no doubt that visionary director Terry Gilliam's magnum opus would inevitably overshadowed by the demise of Heath Ledger, be assured that you will be able to find all the signature overindulgence, choke-full of intoxicatingly wild fantasy, and of course, the darkly delicious visual feast of the standard Terry Gilliam fare.

And with this poster and the below embedded poster, one would be inclined to agree with us.

Can this title bring any other new ideas to the table, or has the developer, Bytemark Games Inc, spent every budget on the licence already?

We shall see.
