Evil Dead: Endless Nightmare

You know i have a zombie addiction… Man this game is so cool, although i must admit i’m still getting used to the control settings, i panic when i see a zombie in the periphery and then i end up getting killed by one that pops out in front of me:

I lasted 16 seconds :(

I lasted 16 seconds 😦

The game is free in the app store. Basically you just run and kill zombies and see how long you can survive with the weapons you have.

Initially your only weapon is your fists, but as you collect blood droplets you can unlock weapons with a bit more kick.

I got a nail gun :D

Who left a barbed wire trench in the middle of the forest? Seriously i keep gravitating towards it, get stuck on it, and it throws off my whole survivalist strategy (yes i’m making excuses for doing so poorly).

What’s your most meters covered/how long have you survived?

Cartoon Horrors

Ok seriously, some adults don’t know the trauma they beset upon their kids when they let them watch certain cartoons…

Sid from Toy Story

Sid from Toy Story

Everyone thinks Sid and his mutated toys from Toy Story are pretty scary, but they really didn’t bother my brother and I as kids (5 and 7). However, there is one cartoon that totally messed my brother and I up emotionally and psychologically. The Lady and the Tramp…

Siamese Cats from Lady and the Tramp

Siamese Cats from Lady and the Tramp

The whole movie had a dark/grunge tone to it, but that scene with the Siamese cats was akin to the twin girls walking out of that elevator in The Shining. To this day my brother and I cringe at just the mention of these cats… We tried to watch the scene now that we are older, but we couldn’t lol 😥 so creepy.

WARNING -> HERE IS THE SIAMESE CAT SCENE! <- ENTER AT OWN RISK

Why were you a part of my childhood 😥 it was perfect until you blemished it 😥 Did anyone else have trauma for life after watching Lady and the Tramp? If not, what cartoon do you think is worse than this one??

Living Toys

Do you think it would be amazing or scary if our toys could come to life? Even if we have given them a certain personality; that might not be who they really are if they came to life. Here are examples of some living toys that we’ve come to love and fear:

1. Small Soldiers

The Gorgonites were the good toys in this story; i’d love to have a few of them alive in my room. However, the Commando Elite would wreak havoc in your house:

2. Toy Story

Hardly any bad toys here (except that Lotso bear guy and the Prospector). Sid’s toys are also a bit scary with how they’ve been mutated. But all of Andy’s toys are welcome to roam my room:

3. The Indian in the Cupboard

Little Bear is the kind of toy you want stepping out of that cupboard, but when your friends meddle with your stuff and bring Boone to life; things can get a bit chaotic:

Ok; so i’m pretty sure that you either love Ted or hate him. I think he could be a bad influence, but there were times when he showed potential for love and loyalty:

Fan Art Friday #17

I’m writing a new book! It’s a science fiction story (and i don’t want to give away too much of the plot here) so via my artwork; i shall introduce you to two of my side characters instead:

Commander Silco Holofax and Lochurn

Commander Silco Holofax and Lochurn

Commander Silco Holofax owns Nextron Space Station (a restaurant-inn for interstellar space travelers, and a refueling platform for cargo ships). A few years ago Holofax became aware of certain illegal activities taking place near the loading bay of his station:

‘What are you always doing out here on the balcony staring down at the loading platform? Not the best view…’  Sarah poked fun at Commander Holofax after joining him out on the restaurant’s viewing platform.

‘Mmm…’ Holofax replied in a contemplative tone, ‘…a lot of these space traders are moonlighting as bounty hunters. I heard the one was a slaver. I saw the cages on his ship…’ Holofax continued to peer down at the loading bay with distaste, ‘… I don’t approve of those hooligans and their shenaniganizing. They’ll give Nextron a bad name. Worse still; if this gets out; people will think i had a hand in it. For the sake of my reputation, and that of the station’s; i’m getting myself a watch dog…’

Several days thereafter Holofax headed out to the Aquatex Cluster (this open star cluster houses the largest concentration of water-worlds  in the universe). Planet PhyQuid was the Commander’s targeted destination. It had a dense atmosphere of water vapor; and was entirely covered by an ocean and sparse distributions of large ice-sheets. PhyQuid boasted a diverse assembly of amphibious lifeforms. It was the Commander’s intention to adopt and domesticate one of these such lifeforms; and to have it take on the role of ‘sentry’ at the Nextron Space Station.

Unfortunately; PhyQuid and other similar planets in the cluster were victims of water-farming. Theft of this precious resource had been taking place for centuries within the cluster. Many of the species housed by these prized water-worlds used avoidance as their primary defense against the poachers.

Lochurn was an infant extraphalopod living within the deepest depths of PhyQuid when Holofax came to him. Being a multi-cellular extremophile; Lochurn is able to withstand extraordinary conditions (such as high pressures and freezing temperatures). The drastic environment of PhyQuid’s depths causes many of the species to live in a state of almost constant hibernation, or more correctly; they are in ‘auto-pilot’ mode (to slow their metabolism and conserve energy).

However, the vibrations of the water-poachers working on the surface of these planets causes the domestic aquatic lifeforms to stir in the deep. Many species are receptive to even the faintest shudder; regardless of the movement’s originating distance. They awaken in ‘hunt’ mode. Lochurn’s mother was killed by poachers after charging toward sinister vibrations on PhyQuid’s surface.

The abandonment of Lochurn was evident. Floating astray in the depths; forlorn and underfed; Holofax lured the extraphalopod into his titanic bathysphere with the promise of food. Lochurn received more than a simple meal from the Commander. It was the Commander’s empathy that restored Lochurn to full health and high spirits. On that day; a strange new friendship had formed.

Limbo

Do you guys remember the video game Limbo? It is a 2D side-scroller puzzle game released in 2010. You play as an un-named boy who has to interact with his environment in order to find and save his lost sister. I loved this game! I only found out recently that a sequel is in the mix:

Ok ok; so it’s not really the sequel, but rather a follow-up game by the same developers (Playdead), with a similar style and concept. The new video game is called Inside:
