I pretty much agree with all of this, just obviously over a much shorter space of time (as I wasn’t born until after the release of the proper 3 Star Wars films!).

Destiny- The Next Big Thing From Bungie

A leaked document has revealed at least some art and the basic story background for the next game from Bungie, the creators of the Halo universe.

The document sent to IGN, and also to Kotaku, says that the game is set on a future Earth where, after a brief colonisation of the stars, humanity has been attacked by aliens and forced back to a single city on our home planet, where we are protected by a large, mysterious spacecraft. Another alien. Only this time it’s a good one.

Players will take the role of what’s basically a space knight, travelling the stars, exploring the worlds and of course fighting the alien menace.

The game is being pitched as a highly social experience, sort of like an MMO, with the universe hoping to appeal to as wide a variety of people.

We received a document earlier this month containing many of the same images visible on IGN, but with a twist; a reader claimed they had found the document on a USB stick left behind in a coffee shop. We refrained from posting them at the time because we weren’t sure how real these images were. Some images seemed like they could be for Bungie’s mysterious game. Others, we’d find, were not. But as we were tracking things down, Bungie confirmed the authenticity of some of the images to IGN.

 

I’m sure that the final game will be amazing whatever happens and I am excited to see a new universe created by Bungie after what they did with Halo.

dDo- Seemingly Amazing Texturing Tool

I want to know what the catch is with the dDo Photoshop plug-in (aside from the price)? It seems to do an amazing amount of texturing work for you, instantly, with tons of customizable options.. How can it be so good? There has to be a catch, otherwise everybody will be using it in the very near future! I will have to check it out when I get a chance.

WALL-E Animations

For those of you who have not seen these short animations in the extras part of the WALL-E DVD then enjoy! I have the DVD and Blu-ray and LOVE the film and hadn’t seen these before!

I love the hoover one the most, it had me cracking up in the office at the end of work today!

Don’t Want To Move House? Ok, We Will Build A Motorway Around It!

A Chinese couple have found themselves living in the fast lane after refusing to move out for a new road.

Construction workers in the country’s Zhejiang province surrounded their five-storey building with asphalt, leaving motorists to navigate an unlikely obstacle.China’s People’s Daily newspaper said the couple refused to leave because they were unhappy with the compensation package they were offered.

Their neighbours are understood to have moved on, although some of their apartments have been left standing.Once complete, the highway through Xiazhangyang village, on China’s eastern coast, will lead to Wenling railway station, which is served by China’s super-fast bullet trains.

The owners of the isolated house it now bypasses are not alone in living with a main road on their doorstep.

 

This is amazing! Crazy Chinese ideas! The British version is so safe and boring in comparison!
