The “alternative universe” has long been a sci–fi trope, usually simply a good–guy bad–guy heroes and villains reversal. Like the Star Trek episode (“Mirror, Mirror”) in which a transporter glitch lands Kirk on an evil pirate “parallel universe” Enterprise where Spock is a goateed murderer with mutiny on his agenda. But real scientists have complicated things considerably, with “string theory” positing at least eleven (and possibly an infinite number) of “alternative/parallel universes.”
Once upon a time, we pondered our relative insignificance as sin

Star Wars: Battlefront Trailer
There’s an official trailer for the new Star Wars: Battlefront game, and it looks pretty amazing. We’re seeing a lot of what we expected: classic battles from the original trilogy as well as a few landscapes we don’t recognize. We know that the game will include a downloadable level from the new film, The Force Awakens, but otherwise we’re not entirely sur

From Myth And Legend
“The wind within the trees was a whisper that spoke our tongue, and the stars in the sky shone on the gods of our heavens, alight and alive. What is science against alchemy, we asked them, what is coincidence against prophecy? Kings and beggars stand equal as fates unfold and worlds awake, as heroes rise and deities fall… among nymphs and mermaids, against harpies and sorceries, we must stand as one. Will you brave the lands of myth and legend with us?”

People pay hundreds for the latest iPhone, which does a ton of things on top of being a phone, and which is why I DON'T OWN ONE!
I carry a phone because I might need to make a call.
Don't think that I'm some sort of Luddite that takes offence at all the bells and whistles they bolt onto the little boxes. I'm not. I just have no use for them, and so, I don't want to pay for them.
I can go into my local phone emporium and pick up a device that is a phone and only a phone for £19.99 (or even less!). No camera, no internet access, just a crappy little green screen that displays a number.
It's a phone, nothing more.
Which brings me to the next generation of consoles.
As far back as I have desired them, they have cost around the £100 – £200 mark at launch, even when they started doing things they didn't need to, like play DVDs/Blue
Squirrels....of DEATH.As a rule, I run under the assumption that if word of an outbreak or pandemic suddenly hits the news, it's already too late.

So, when I hear that a squirrel just outside Los Angeles has been found dead and racked with The Plague, I get a little freaked out.
That's THE Plague.

Now, there are plague animals running wild all over the place, and the Black Death can actually be treated at the moment, but the bacterium has been at large for centuries, giving it plenty of time to turn real nasty. Our antibiotics get less effective by the day, with the bugs they're used on becoming more and more resistant to them through misu
Raiders of the Lost CartA search is currently underway to debunk/proove true one of Video Game history's great myths: are there really millions of old E.T. Atari game cartridges buried out in the New Mexico desert?Raiders of the Lost Cart in Personal More Like This
For the XBox generation: Atari's 1982 game, based (and I use that word very loosely) on the inexplicably popular film about an intergalactic gob of faecal matter with Christmas tree lights for fingers and his quest to call his mates up and ask why the bastards ran off without him, is widely regarded as one of the worst games in the history of the planet. A game so bad that, with so many carts being returned or simply left unsold, it caused the video games industry to nearly sh*t itself into extinction.
Urban legend tells us that Atari loaded the millions of little boxes of Fail onto trucks, shipped them off to the desert and buried them (along with, we assume, a programmer or two), then coated the site with concrete.
One can never be too careful.

Penchant for detonating sparking, explody things aside, they're not at all similar.
One is about a nation celebrating its independence (or the defeat of alien invaders, depending how strong your grip is on reality) the other is basically a nation trolling terrorists, rubbing their faces in failure.
That the thwarting of the November 5th gunpowder plot is remembered is arguably one of the two reasons why the Brits are universally unafraid of terrorism (the second being that Fair Blighty has faced down the largest war machines the world has ever seen. A random yahoo that wants to blow himself up is an irritant by comparison). You leave the nations of the UK alone and they fight among themselves in a 600mile long drunken brawl. However, if an outside force so much as prods them with a stick in a manner that they find remotely unpleasant, they unify

Only a handful of those, however, can I refer to as being "good". Or even "tolerable".
Having watched them for most of my life, going back to things like Mysterious Cities of Gold and the original Astro Boy, I can say with a certain degree of authority that: Japanese storytelling is a bit wank. Daring and dynamic visuals, sure. Crap narrative.
And it can't ALL be blamed on "bad translation".
There's a wide range of gripes to be had, but chief among them these days is that the major characters, those who one would assume you're to root for, across however many episodes the series consists of, are generally complete and utter dicks.
I'm currently wading through Gurren Lagann, a series which people have raved about for a while but which I'd not had the chance to watch until now (spoiler approaching, should you be in the same boat).
Titties? DENIED!I honestly can't remember the first pair of boobs I ever saw.

I agree that kids shouldn't see certain content, but I disagree that them doing so causes the "corruption/corrosion" some folk claim. That stems from kids not being told about what they're seeing, and has less to do with the media they're exposed to and more to do with sh*t parenting.

That strange place, so distant, yet so close to my heart. Buildings as tall as mountains.
Dead structures, watching with dead eyes. Empty, vast and endless honeycombs of stone and steel. Air filled with gray ashes, always fluttering from the cloudy sky.
The black vortex opens up in the sky, descending down to the city. The vortex spiral rips the city apart, bending the air itself, feasting on light, feasting on time.
There is a lonely figure standing in the street.
No matter how hard I try to make out his or her expression, I cannot. Is there no face there at all? Or perhaps there is a million human faces there, intertwined and flickering in unison, as bright as the light of ten thousand suns?
The being stares into the abyss of the vortex.
It takes another step towards it, into the horizon of nothingness, into a place where nothing can exist.

For several months of torture, the Directorate kept me in their offices, making me file paperwork on their "test subjects", all while I kept sending applications to the "Dead Zone tourism" branch, to get away from towering cubes of the Directorate, away from cities and transmitter towers that were slowly frying my brain.
Centuries of industrial pollution were inevitably changing the biosphere of our world and the Directorate knew it better than anyone, yet they did nothing to stop it, profit had to be maximized, production had to be increased, customers had to be satisfied.

Hope you enjoyed, thanks again for your all's feedback, it really helped me make a decision about what to do with my room.
Possibly no more Minecraft for me :(Minecraft 1.4 came out, and now that I have it, I can barely play the game. My lameass computer could just barely handle it before, and that's with Boosting the priority, and shutting down non essential processes(at least ones I know are nonessential). Now it lags just a little too much and I either keep taking fall damage and dying, or can't combat hostiles well enough to not get murderfied. THIS SUCKS!!!! I need a new computer . I don't know what it is about the new update it is, but now I think its over that threshold of being too laggy for me to effectively play the game.Possibly no more Minecraft for me :( in Personal More Like This

Hi everyone! Saw The Lego Movie tonight, t'was awesome, as the song suggests. I won't go into a big long review about the Movie. I'm a MOCer not a movie critic. All I can say is that as a FOL I was laughing probably more than anyone else in the theater was because I got all the lego references. It got to the point were I was a little self conscious about how much I was laughing at this movie. I didn't wanna be rude to anyone else in there. But luckily it was pretty empty at the 5:00PM showing I went to. There was only one annoying bratty kid I wanted to drop kick in the face for messing with my movie going experience. If you love lego or simply love good humor( but I suspect most of you love both),

On DeviantArt, your deviations are paramount, and we want to present them in the best way possible, even in thumbnail form. Over the past few months, we've been working on a new thumbnail grid that maintains the integrity of your deviations, no matter their dimensions or content types. Our goal is to be better at displaying art than any other site on the Internet.
Problems We’re Solving
We can do better than the current thumbnail grid, which includes uneven or irregular gaps between deviations. These gaps don't have any visual rhythm, causing your eyes to jump all over the place. Some content types, including literature, journals, pixel art, and emoticons, don’t look ideal. Our new grid focuses on fixing these issues while modernizing the look and feel of DeviantArt.

I was working with my now best friend and business partner, Stephan, a suave German who I had met only a year or so prior. He had brought me into the fray, working with several other individuals who will, well, simply be known as individuals for privacy sake.
But yes, finally, I could put a professional company I

OBJECTIVE: SELL THIS DAMN BOOK, DANNY.
At first, Gabriel was nothing more than a character named ONE. He had no backstory, no face, nothing. I just wanted to create a character that was a badass, yet with a sense of humor.
I was inspired by such characters as Boba Fett, Wolverine, Deadpool and Clint Eastwood from The Man With No Name trilogy. I needed to create something that fit that build, however, I'll admit, it wasn't intended at first.
I uploaded him on December 8th, 2008, (which, you can find here: http://danluvisiart.deviantart.com/art/GABRIEL-107612010?q=gallery%3Adanluvisiart%2F7848546&qo=50) and he became one of the most popular characters of the series, if not, the most. Soon I started finding him on forums, websites, fashion blogs (what?), and more.
But what hit me so hard was that the majority of the comments rela

As you know, Comic-Con is arriving and as I prepare for it, I grow more and more anticipated with anxiety/joy in regards to the re-release of Last Man Standing.
As long, challenging, and mind-opening the creation of LMS was, something really stuck with me.
Before I had created LMS, I wanted to work for WETA Workshop. To those that don't know them, they've created props, designs, sets, costumes, and more for The Lord of the Rings, Avatar, District-9, Elysium, The Hobbit and many more films.
I was obsessed and inspired with them. The creator, Richard Taylor was always a huge inspiration to me. After viewing supplements on the Extended Editions of The Lord of the Rings DVDS, I knew right there: I HAD TO WORK FOR THEM.

OBJECTIVE: CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT AND STORY BUILDING
I began working pretty heavily on LMS during the first quarter of 2009. I had now a handful of characters, a rough idea of the story, and a general scope of what I wanted the book to be. To get started, I felt every book should have a theme. Movies do, right?
Spider-Man: Great powers, great responsibility.
Batman: Be more than just a man, a symbol, and be remembered a legend.
Star Wars: The myth of a heroes destiny, and the truth that allows him to be set free.
Who was Gabriel? What type of character or archetype was he? What were his rises and

But for everyone else, at last, 2 years later from it's original release, LMS: Killbook of a Bounty Hunter, is up for presale. Not only that, Dark Horse Comics (Hellboy, BPRD, Star Wars and more) will be publishing it.
This is the REPRINT. But! It's been completely rewritten, new story, new bios, new art AND at the back of the book will be featured 60+ professional artists' contributions to the LMS world. Such artists as Dave Rapoza, Anthony Jones, Andree Wallin, Reid Southen, Kekai Kotaki, Ash Thorp, Marco Nelor and more...

In the story, before Gabriel breaks out of Level-9, he is introduced to an "Agent-O, a character that gives Gabriel the documents needed to begin this revenge quest. Inside of the documents are bios and information on all of the characters Gabriel will meet/team-up with/or kill.

What did I just sign myself up for?
I had never made, drawn, written, or created a book in my life, so this was all pretty foreign to me. I had told Heavy Metal publishing I'd do it on my own dime. Reason was, this was my project.
Not that I can't cooperate or collaborate, but this time I wanted to create what I saw in my head, and not have a voice behind me telling me what to do and what not to do. Kevin Eastman, head of HM Pub, was incredibly generous in this decision and told me to lead the way, and I tried my damnest.
So I started with the obvious fundamentals. What is the story of LMS?
Now, as a whole, LMS's simple logline is incredibly simple. A man who gets framed for a crime he didn't commit, breaks out of prison and goes after those

I thought I'd do a reminder about the D2U MP project release of Proving Grounds due out in over a week on Xmas Day 2013 - and after that the team will be focusing on the SP version of SOL Contingency: The Lunar Incident.
There is a good chance of it going global because of the talent, quality, and gameplay involved. Since the UDK already supports some multilingual features, it is anticipated to have more foreign language support in future releases.
So, in the near future - if you or someone you know has some free time from other projects, maybe you'd like to stop by and say Hi to the guys and get familiar with the project? Or simply mention your hopes & interest in the game?
Or maybe you'd even like to link some of you

We have collected reference material to get everyone started quickly. Level designers with experience in Unreal or other modern engines are especially preferred, so if you have never mapped for a modern game,
