New Mass Effect 3 endings. (spoilers)

#MassEffect3 #ME3EC @bioware Spoilers!! So I'm sure you all remember the controversy that erupted when people started to finish mass effect 3 and discovered major plot holes and some glaring continuity inaccuracies (I personally had a character on earth with me who some how magicked themselves onto the Normandy sometime before Joker became a massive pussy and flew away leaving humanity to its fate) well I have 2 things to share with you... First, a theory based on the original endings that doesn't really change the fact that there are still some plot holes and tries to negate a large portion of the generically awful final cut scenes, which I'm sure most people are ok with. The new endings kind of negate this theory though, which suggests that bioware hadn't had some kind of secret indoctrination theory plot line running the whole time and this guy is just crazy, but prior to the new endings this theory made a lot of sense. So here is the Indoctrination Theory. The new extended endings are all available after the jump.

@stripsteve @boysnoize
After countless disco-tastic EP's we finally get Strip Steve's album Micro Mega on July 16. It's totally not soon enough! Although thankfully BNR have released previews of every track from the album. WHAT A TEASE IT IS! I can taste it's brilliance ever so slightly. AH YES and as a bonus we get Calcium on here. Finally on vinyl (well if you missed BNR TRAX vinyl special)!!!
"All The Time" and "Skate Control" are really sticking out for me right now after a listen through. What's exciting you most here?

Juneish Beatboners

@grandpetrol @paraoner @LAZERSWORD @jam_city @mickeymoonlight



BEATBONERpast participle, past tense of b-boning (Verb)


Noun:
  1. A sound/collection of sounds that make the penis erect whether it be in the pants or brain.
  2. A musical track that makes the head nod, crotch bounce or person to yell 'WHAT IS THIS?!?!'

You should probably BUY AND LISTEN to all/some of these tracks. Side effects may be a tightening of the pants.


Jan Driver - Peaker

Jan Driver once again proves that he makes truly exciting monster tunes. Simple, effective, gripping. BANGING.

Para One - Sigmund

I love the opening dialogue. Then boom. A yummy beat. Do yourself a massive favour and grab Para One's new album Passion. Its a delight of varied genres and wins.



Lazer Sword - 
Let's Work (Ft Jimmy Edgar)

The sexiest track my ears have indulged in for a while. 
Let's work... BAAAGGHRRM BAAGM BAAGM! Pick up Memory. It's magnific! 


Jam City - Hyatt Park Nights Pt. 1

I don't think I've heard something that just feels and sounds so 'future'. From the doggy barks, shattered glass and heavy drum beat this track is all kinds of win and will probably send you into a frenzy of dance crotch pumps and ear funk confusion. Check out 'Classical Curves' if you want to discover more of this fresh sound.


Ado - Pressure 

Mature crunchy pulsating crazy that builds and meanders from start to finish. To me the equivalent of what Sommer was for Housemeister. Am I allowed to say that?



Sei A - Mercy Bass


The New Jack Techno compilation is a mother fucker. Sei A knocks it out of the park for me here (followed closely by Duke Dumont). Mercy Bass is killer. Relentless perfection with such a beautiful full sound.


Duke Dumont - 
Street Walker (Alternative Version)


You will probably hear this in sets for the next six months and then in 2017 when it's cool again. Why? Because it's superb. Slightly more groovetastic than the original. However thats quite arguable. 



Mickey Moonlight - 
Come on Humans(Sam Tiba Remix)

I LOVE THIS! I loved the original so very much. It wasn't a dance track at all....... but this is. Try to stay still while listening to this. SO FUCKING FLY!



High Powered Boys - Mind Games

Surkin and Bombo have created a super sweet EP with Streetwise. Mind Games is my favourite track from it. This will slaughter peeps on a big system.

WRONG COPS: The Production Photos

@oizo3000 @marilynmanson @ericwareheim @ArdenMyrin
Wrong Cops is the new film by Quentin Dupieux AKA Mr. Oizo. Starring Marilyn Manson, Eric Wareheim, Steve Little, Mark Burnham and Arden Myrin.

Not to be confused with Wrong (although we have every reason to believe it's some sort of spinoff - Main WC cop Mark Burnham plays a cop in the film Wrong), it has a current released date of 2013. The production just wrapped on Day 13, and with it, wrapping the performances of Marilyn Manson, Eric Wareheim and Jon Jajoie.

We have put together a collection of production photos, mostly coming from Quentin's twitter feed. You can view his twitter by following him at @oizo3000, but for your convenience, we have put them all in one handy post. Some of them make no sense, and quite frankly, I included them... for no reason.

TRAILER: Dredd 3D


Look, it's 2012, so we have stopped our relentless whinging about remakes. It happens. Some are good, some are bad. SOME look good, but are bad, and vice versa. We posted earlier about Total Recall and it's lack of imagination, well I'm pleased to present the new trailer for a remake of another 90's film.

Dredd 3d. Which seems to have quite a mythical plot between this good guy, and this mega bitch.



Eomer (Karl Urban) from The Lord of the Rings trilogy

VS.



Cersei Lannister (Lena Hedley) from Game of Thrones

Looks like we are in.... for a bit of rape.

So although there is some cheese factor in this trailer (Dredds voice channeling his inner Christian Bale), I like how it's centred around a drug story, it's raw and it's kinda serious. Plus there are some sweet slow mo shots which should look pretty bad ass in 3d. Enjoy the trailer.





seems like this movie is just a high budget sci-fi version of The Raid:Redemption. With less awesome knife and fist fighting.

TRAILER: Taken 2



Yeah, it sounds like a Playstation game from the last decade but of course we are talking about the sequel to the very popular Liam Neeson bad-ass film TAKEN. I have to say, since I really enjoyed the first one, I'm kind of glad that A) it's linked back to the original, as apposed to creating a whole new story and B) pretty much the same thing happens again. Don't call it a re-hash, if you enjoyed the first one, and you thought it was bad ass, then I'm sure the second one will get you to the cinema. Enjoy the trailer below.

If you aren't aware of who Tim & Eric then you have probably never visited the Castle before and enjoy comedies like Two and a Half Men.

Explained below. I've never laughed as hard as the first time i saw the first 15 seconds of the below video.




Total Recall - Total Ripoff

#totalrecall #totalripoff @paulverhoeven 

This years remake of Total Recall directed by Len Wiseman is totally unnecessary. We didn't ask for it and I'm still very satisfied to to watch the 22 year old original. It's perhaps my favourite Schwarzenegger film that's the perfect balance of B-grade cheese with a compelling narrative and balls out Verhoeven gore.

Sure there's nothing wrong with remaking a film but it just doesn't seem like this is going to be any good. Is anyone jumping up and down with excitement to see this? Can't say I'm much of a Farrell fan and the number of shots it rips right from the original (see the video below) is ridonkulous (although not on a Gus Van Sant shot for shot remake [see 'Psycho' -1998]

Come on look at Arnie's face above. He reeks of awesome. Farrell reeks of baby piss.

So may i suggest when Total Recall is released this year you grab some friends and watch Verhoeven's 1990 sci-fi classic in someones lounge room.

The one thing i fear after this film is released is that younger generations will recognise this as 'being' Total Recall and not the 1990 Arnie vehicle.

Actors against acting athletes.

#actorsagainstactingathletes
this is true. Shaq and other athletes should not be allowed to appear in films! unless it's space jam.

Minecraft - Diamonds are forever.

#minecraft
This is well done, I don't play minecraft but I'm led to believe it is quite an intriguing game. This doesn't do a whole lot to make me want to play it but it is a well made short film and worth your time.

Game of thrones intro remixed.

rynecologist has done a remix of the superb opening track for Game of Thrones. Enjoy.

Another Board Game Movie




So I did a Half Baked review of Hasbro's film BATTLESHIP
Here's one better. Remember the board game Guess Who? 

Can't wait to review it!

Prometheus Holes - SPOILERS


@redlettermedia







          Do not watch this if you haven't seen Prometheus. 

The 'Half in the Bag' guys discuss Prometheus and pull it apart hilariously. To be fair these guys actually liked Ridley's new film however like with a lot of Sci Fi films a lot is not explained and left up to the audience to work out. However flawed this film is, it'll be talked about for years to come. I personally have a love/hate relationship with this film that leans more towards love (enjoyed it so much more on the second viewing) as we just don't get enough daring sic fi movies these days. It deserves your attention especially with films like 'Jack & Jill' being in our multiplexes. Anyways enough babble. Watch!




I can answer at least four of these questions.  



Kinda reminds me of this.



Go watch Rubber now.

STRIP STEVE - ASTRAL PROJECTION

@stripsteve @boysnoizerec

Strip Steve is about to release (July 13) his first album entitled 'Micro Mega'. Astral Projection Feat. Puro Instinct is the first single from it.

I LOVE THIS. A sound that feels decades fresh.

Oh Strip Steve, you so young. Music video is psychedelic good funs.

Turbo's 'New Jack Techno'

@turborecordings

On June 18 Turbo Recordings will be releasing 'New Jack Techno'. This isn't something for someone with content ears. This is future techno that's harsh and hard hitting. Unforgiving and Grandma hatin but so very delicious.

Duke Dumont wins again for me here.

You can listen to the whole compilation below. Take off your pants. Press play. Party.

Armoured Kill

#bf3 @battlefield


So the DLC for Battlefield 3 has been pretty nuts so far (Close Quarters is out today for Premium users). But i think Armoured Kill is going to take the cake. Massive (Bandar Desert is the biggest ever created for BF3) vehicle focused maps with new aircraft including the AC-130. Crazy awesome.

Shit Post Sunday - The Best game at E3

#watchdogs

Holy Balls! If you watch these two videos and don't want to play this game immediately you are super super lame.



Tippet's Art, Love and Loss


Phil Tippet brought the brilliant Rancor to life in glorious stop motion in 1983. He has created and filmed countless classic sequences in many massive films for decades. But unfortunately with the age of the 'puter his art has been nudged aside for something arguably more boundless.

Have a look at this interview he did with Harry from Aint it Cool (after harry stops getting a geekboner for Prometheus). It's worth mentioning that this show is well worth tuning into so perhaps you should check the rest out here



This is the Mad God teaser that's talked about in the above interview

E3 2012 Castle Filter

#castlefilter #e3

We aint IGN or gametrailers but we are a filter on the internet. Delivering awesome to your internets almost everyday.

So we can't cover the whole of E3 but we can filter the 'awesome' out for you.

Here's the first thing that caught our eye. There will be more to come during the week.

Star Wars 1313. 

Finally an 'adult' Star Wars game. This may tie in with the much talked about Star Wars Live action series.  Graphics look insane. ILM help, helps.




South Park - The Stick of Truth

South Park's RPG! It's being made in close collaboration with the genius duo Trey Parker and Matt Stone. Nuff said.




Prometheus in 2D.

#prometheus

So this is the only way Prometheus should be viewed. In real 2D. Someone has obviously gone to a substantial amount of effort to make this. Kudos.
