So couple of weeks ago the Electronic Entertainment Expo was held in Los Angeles. Of course most of the gamers were focused on Microsoft with their Xbox One (or Xbone or Xbox 180) and the Playstation 4. Many games were announced and much fuzz has been discussed concerning the DRM of the Xbox One and the ease of trade the Playstation 4 (still) offers. But who was the winner of this year’s E3? Well without further ado, the winner for this years E3 2013 is…
Found this picture some time ago and realized this is how politics works right? You both want to get to the top, but aren’t willing to work together. So you just divide the tools you have and eventually just do not reach the goal set.
Many of you have grown up or at least know a game created and published by the once so great Lucasarts. Games like Monkey Island, Grim Fandango, the Indiana Jones series or my personal favorite Maniac Mansion. But most of you will know and remember Lucasarts as the publisher for the many, many and I really mean many Star Wars games.
Now I say publisher and not developer for a reason. I want you to stop reading this and think for a minute the last 5 titles Lucasarts actually made within the Star Wars universe. Ready? Then read on!
For the sake of this article, I assume that there are still people in the world who have this website bookmarked after the countless redesigns and the general lack of new content since the autumn of 2011. Also, based on our previous output, I am going to say that all four of you (this number includes Nr|Five and myself) probably are men. Of course, we mean no offence to any women who love to come to criticasm.com for its insightful articles on the dvd releases of bad superhero movies. Anyway, having now established that we are all modern men of the internet era, I suspect you my dearest reader might already have heard of the subject of my newest film review: SPRING BREAKERS. In fact, some of you possibly circled the release date on your calendar with a big red marker.
As you might have noticed we changed the lay-out and structure of the site. We came to the conclusion that it wasn’t “hip and sparkly” anymore, so we went with something more simple but yet sophisticated (it should work on all devices too!). Also with the changes brought to the site, it now also supports posting simple and smaller posts. You can compare it with Twitter, Tumblr or Facebook.
Do not worry though, it won’t be micro-blogging all the way, we will write long and annoying posts (which probably nobody bothers to read), but combine it with smaller and easier ways to rant, more frequent updates should be achievable… right?
It is not often I write something about games, let alone a mobile game (app). I believe that gaming is something really personal, even more so compared to movies. With movies there is always a general consensus of what works and what does not. With games you are interfering with fanboys…
Not all of you might know what is happening when it comes to legislation and bills being passed around in the US. Even I have problems reading all those pieces. But this is an important issue and we want every reader to know what is happening around them.
What a year it has been. Not for criticasm.com perse but for the entire world. We are talking about strikes, crisis, falls of complete governments, the coming of 3D, the world of tablets and many many more things. Looking at the post count it has not been an impressive year, but this does not mean we never commented on the many things happening around the world. Our most dedicated followers know and have been confronted many times with our foul spitting humor – if you can call it that – about many things.
Lately there has been a change through the movie and TV industry I want to make people aware of. With last years electronic conventions and press releases by some of the bigger technical companies, you will notice that 3D is HOT. Hot in big bold and red letters. A technology which has been here for some time, remember those red and blue glasses? Well nowadays you can find it in phones, tablets, TV and of course the cinemas. And in the cinema is where all the hype has started…
What the hell, a Criticasm review by sneaky? No need to check your farm animals, my friend. They haven’t suddenly developed wings, while you were out do to groceries. Christmas has just come early this year and I can now finally present you my long-postponed third article. Admittedly the film in question has already left the cinemas ages ago, but I still really want to share my thoughts about it with you. It has been a personally favourite of mine since I saw it last year on one faithful summer evening at the gorgeous Edinburgh Filmhouse and I feel it has somewhat been overlooked.
