So, last week it was announced that Konami will be releasing a new Silent Hill game (for which you can see the trailer above). Seeing as how I am a GIGANTIC Silent Hill fan, I have thoughts about this.
(UPDATE) According to a post at The Mary Sue, Mr. Queen has apparently retracted the lawsuit threats and apologized. Good on him.
So, for those of you who don’t frequent Tumblr, there’s this blog on the site known as EscherGirls. It’s mission statement is basically to critique (and occasionally mock) poorly drawn female anatomy in comics and other media.
Apparently, an artist named Randy Queen feels that critique of his artwork is a personal attack on him and decided to throw the adult version of a tantrum.
It was recently announced that Blizzard will be premiering the cinematic for the upcoming World Of Warcraft expansion, Warlords Of Draenor, on August 14th. The event is set to take place at 9:30 PDT at Ace Theater in Los Angeles. According to the website:
A storm of iron is headed Azeroth’s way—be among the first to witness its fury at the world premiere of the Warlords of Draenor cinematic! Join Blizzard’s Mike Morhaime, Chris Metzen, and World of Warcraft designers Ion Hazzikostas and Brian Holinka for the grand unveiling, streamed live from the Ace Theatre in Los Angeles. But that’s not all—we’ll also host a live interview with the WoW developers, announce the Warlords of Draenor launch date, and debut the first episode of a new animated lore mini-series: Lords of War. You won’t want to miss it!
They’ll also be livestreaming the event at WorldofWarcraft.com for us sorry bastards who don’t live in LA, though those who actually attend will receive a key for the beta. Unfortunately, since I do have a day job, I will not be able to view it myself since I will be at work. But rest assured, loyal readers, I will definitely be talking about it when I get home.
