Slenderman, Slenderman, does whatever a Slenderman does...
I put together the following compendium of prose and poetry in memory of Dizzy Gillespie who died 22 years ago this month.
A Howling Good Time
Last night I watched a documentary on Jesse Owens.2 I am looking forward to the 2015 biopic Race starring Stephan James who will play Olympic legend Jesse Owens. This is the work of director Stephen Hopkins' which began shooting on 24 July 2014 in Montreal, and on location at the Olympic Stadium in Berlin. The film will be released in April 2015.
I put the following pieces of prose and prose-poetry together as a single literary package after watching Hitchcock, a 2012 American biographical dramafilm based on Stephen Rebello's non-fiction book Alfred Hitchcock and the Making of Psycho. The film was released on 23 November 2012; I saw this dramafilm two years and two months later, yesterday evening 17/1/'151 on TV, in Tasmania Australia. In 2015 was entering the last decade of late adulthood, the years from 60 to 80 according to one model of human development used by psychologists.
Stupidly long titles and filler.
Does inFamous: Second Son live up to the hype? Or does is make us wish Cole was here?
It's more like Lego Marvel Superzeroes

3D Dot Game heroes is a fun tribute to retro gaming that's harder and more complex than it first appears. It's an absolute pleasure to play and the sometimes subtle; sometimes blatant humour is a nice reminder that it's shouldn't be taken too seriously. It's a tribute to the last 30 years of gaming culture that will be enjoyed by old and new gamers alike.
DeathSpank is one of those rare titles where everything comes together to make a perfect game. It doesn't take itself too seriously but, underneath the kooky exterior beats the heart or a truly great game. Once you've completed it once you'll want to play it again to relive the jokes and see all the game references and item names you missed the first time around.
Saboteur brings many sandbox elements together into a package that could have been fantastic. Unfortunately poor implementation and buggy game play prevent this from achieving all it could. With the lack of polish you can't help but wonder if the Pandemic development team's heart just wasn't in it after EA started to dissolve the company.
This is a beautifully presented game. It made very clever use of the environment and skills but I felt it was holding my hand the entire time. Run/jump where the camera points until I reach a fight, mash the attack button until everyone is dead, watch a cut scene, rinse and repeat.
Dante's Inferno is a thoroughly enjoyable action game. It is very easy but will have you playing again to see everything you missed. If you liked God of War you will probably enjoy this as the ideas, gameplay and level design are very similar. It's not a long game but is an absolute blast for a week or so.
This game is wonderful! I's well presented, the story and characters are interesting, and the level design is good. The graphics are exceptional, even by today's standards and it's one of those rare games which, despite the linear level design, you'll have no problem playing again. If you own a PS3 I recommend this as an essential purchase.
