Zombies surprise "unprepared" to British city


A week after authorities in Leicester, in eastern England, admitted they were unprepared for an invasion of zombies, a horde of "undead" shuffled through the streets

About 150 people make horror films took part in this "collective madness", according to the organizer James Dixon.

The participants "complained and squeezed his face against the glass" in the offices of the municipality.

The accident occurred after the news released last week from someone who identified himself as "concerned citizen" had taken the Law on Freedom of Information, to ask the authorities would react to an attack of zombies.

The request read: "Having seen several films, it is clear that preparation for such an event is rare and is something for which municipalities should be prepared"

The authorities of the municipality of the city of Leicester admitted that they had plans for this potential situation, but said that the request had made them laugh.

The story became a hit on social networking, and led Dixon to host the Saturday evening on Facebook.

What began as a "small group of friends" was transformed as interest grew, so that dozens of fans gathered around the clock tower of the city at noon.

"Quite a show," Dixon said: "We thought shuffling gait from the watch to the offices of the municipality, half a mile through the center of the city.

"The building had just a couple of security guards. Do not attempt to enter, but we squeezed against the glass, like the zombies in the movies.

"A few are in the bar now, has been a very good day."

Chris Porter, a bystander filmed the evening, said he had been "quite a spectacle."

"People were in their routine work when suddenly, a horde of zombies began to move heavily," he said.

"It was amazing to see how everyone stopped to watch. Of course, if it had been a real zombie attack, I think people would have run for his life."

Impressions of Prototype 2 for Playstation 3

In recent years seems to have become fashionable with open-world games, now we're in a time where technology permits. After a flurry of new titles a few years we have seen even aftermath of several titles were born in this generation they belong to that genre, like Assassin's Creed (who have released two sequels, and we are headed in the third) or Infamous 2, which came recently.

Next on the list is Prototype 2, Activision's commitment to gender and we will in 2012 and we saw a preview in Los Angeles.

The game takes place 14 months after the events narrated in the first, but this time the protagonist is Alex Mercer, who control the first game, but a soldier who is infected, passing his powers.

The new player saw his wife and children die and find the culprits, having no objection to unleash its powers if that gets his revenge.

In this sense, according to its developers told us, the game will be more beast than before, since they believe that is what he liked people and what distinguished him from others, why they have chosen a character that is not afraid to use his powers.

Again takes place in New York, but this time will be delimited by three different zones. The first is the red zone, which would be Manhattan, which was ground zero for the explosion of the virus.

This territory is controlled by the virus and no humans, while known to have survived. The second area is the yellow quarantine zone, in which healthy people live with others who are carriers or have begun to mutate, without the military are able to curb the expansion, but take advantage of the situation experiments on the virus.

Finally there is the green area, a militarized area that is supposedly safe from viruses, but soon discover that this is not true.

As in the first part, between the skills of the protagonist is the ability to disguise from others, so that it can go undetected in hostile environments.

 Of course, you always have the option of using more direct techniques, such as throwing cars into the air, stealing a barrel of a tank and use it against the military or use a biological bomb that burst a person and create a ripple effect of a black material viscous finish the rest.

But if we are men of action, will also be the option of melee and the virus will allow us to modify our bodies to adapt to the combat, providing us with a giant blade that literally shatter the enemies.

In this sense the game is much more brutal beast than the last, which certainly appeals to more than one. When choosing our powers, we have a set of skills that we choose in each moment, because we have a series of slots that will lead us only a certain number of skills at all times, although any time we decide which activities and which we took off.

As above, being located in an open world makes the game based on missions, but how to develop the main plot is the same as the first part, this is absorbing some key people to take their memories and find the information that interests us and move us forward.

A new feature also allows us to win some prizes are the dungeons, hidden places around town where we end up with a horde of mutants, some with a really huge size, to clean them and conquer them. No doubt another reason to explore the city.

Visually much improved from the previous delivery, which is good news though, was to be expected, it was quite discretito. Yet despite its evident improvement, is far from other titles of the genre, so we expect its creators used the time they have left (not out until next year) to enhance this section to make it attractive.

What remains are fighting well, seeing how it moves the protagonist and being able to interact with a number of things in the city, something we hope to continue strengthening.

Prototype 2 I think this will improve its predecessor in all aspects of promoting that made him stand out from its competitors and the audience really liked. Surely being able to make the city the beast is really sexy, though we hope not to forget the rest of the sections and to balance the overall adventure. Fortunately there's still development time and hope that the game continues to improve.

Impressions of Little Deviants to Psvita

When a few months ago was first PS Vita, known at that time as NGP, one of the titles that were used to demonstrate the capabilities of the console was an unabashed Little Deviants game that we could try at E3 this year bring our impressions.

Little Deviants consists of a series of minigames, each with a number of levels that offer enough depth, and not try to test only a few seconds, but depending on our skill levels can go past.

In the demo we tried was available four ways, each with its own gameplay and the common denominator that took advantage of the new possibilities of the console and are led by the deviants, some funny creatures that take different forms.

The first game we tried was using the camera to offer augmented reality. On the screen appeared a few enemies aboard a flying saucer who wanted to kidnap the deviants and our duty was to move the screen to locate and destroy them before they finished with our partners.

The second used the gyroscope and made us take a deviant over a raked stage with the console and avoiding obstacles that made him lose time, and if time reaches zero level, we lost.

The third test we played we were forced to use both the touch screen touch panel front and back, presenting a house with several windows that were opened and left to see enemies that touch. Grace is that it could appear in front (we played from the screen) or behind (we used the touch panel rear), and must use both panels in more than one occasion, all the while we avoided giving the innocent who also came from time to time .

Finally, a minigame that was taught with the presentation of the game for the first time, who, using the touch panel rear raised our ground and we were leading a deviant form of a sphere with the stage.

Say it and see it sounds simple, but the fact is that cost us more than we thought at first, but it only cost a couple of games begin to manage it well (not master).

The goal was to get in each phase, a portal that more was located in a different place, all while esquivábamos enemies who swarmed the stage.

Graphically color and offers a casual style and although we do not believe that is the best title to demonstrate the capabilities of the console in this sense (for that is already Uncharted) if we believe that their creators have gotten a very attractive visual style and full of life surely dazzle more than one.

Overall I liked Little Deviants. This is a collection of minigames, ideal for portable games, and is quite challenging and we should strive to go through the levels. Also, console applications like us really clever and fun and we look forward to seeing the rest of the mini-games to see what has happened to their creators.

Impressions of Final Fantasy Xiii-2 for Playstation 3

Final Fantasy XIII divided many players for their style of play and its linearity for much of the adventure, but that has not stopped Square-Enix has decided to launch a sequel to tell what happened after the end of that title.

 This time the stars are Serah (who must be saved in the first part) and Noel, a new girl who will join her, but we also have times when you will control Lighting, more powerful than ever. At this E3 we had the opportunity to see the game, which is fairly advanced.

The basis of the Final Fantasy XIII-2, as expected, is its predecessor, is that not only takes the world and characters from the previous game, but we have a system practically the same as we saw in his day , with some news.

These developments come as what has been called Cinematic Action, which are only specific times in combat (it may take several to a fight, although it was clear in terms of occurring) in which we see a scene which the character will do something cool while we have to do the actions on the screen. Come on, a Quick Time Event of a lifetime.

Thanks to this spectacular looking to win in battle by the character has to be aware of what happens, which a priori is not bad, but will have to see her often to see if it becomes tedious.

It has also slightly changed the way we find the characters, and that is if before we saw the map and we could avoid them, not now appear before us until we are fairly close, at which activates a clock with two areas, green and yellow.

 If we hit the enemy while the clock is green, start the battle ahead as if we do it when in yellow will be a normal battle. Finally there is the option of running out of time without a fight and we started without us escaped from the area of ​​enemies (and we will always have the option to flee), something not recommended, since the fighting began at a disadvantage .

Thus there is some strategy in tackling the fighting and rewards the fight, because if we face the enemies as they appear, we lead and the fight faster.

Another new face at the time of the fighting is that along with Serah and Noel can fight monsters that have captured and is very important to choose the right kind of monster in terms of the enemies we face.

Furthermore, among all the characters in our group so we can link attacks to be even more devastating.

Finally, another new aspect of the game is that now we can jump, something that will be used mainly to discover hidden areas and secrets, something that will help the new maps that will be far less linear.

Impressions The Darkness Ii for Xbox 360


The first The Darkness was a game that was quite striking and unusual mechanics. Its protagonist, Jackie, had been possessed by the dark and could use his demonic powers to their advantage, something that came in handy to avenge the death of his girlfriend. Now even more powerful returns become one with the darkness in this second part we saw at E3 this year.

At the end of the first part, Jackie had just dominating the dark, but his relationship with her was still something ... complicated.

When the Brotherhood, a group that for centuries has struggled against the darkness begins to use to their advantage, decides to intervene and keep things out of hand

This will, in addition to their own human abilities that include the use of firearms, with the power of darkness, embodied in a kind of demonic snakes that will accompany you and will be of great help.

As we see, The Darkness II is not your typical shooter, and not limit ourselves to shoot (although it will be an important part of the game), but through the power of darkness we can do all sorts of things, like crossing the enemy, pick up objects and throw them at some distance on them, use a table and take it as a shield or run wildly enemies.

All this we do while we shoot, our weapons because we can simultaneously use the power of darkness. Unfortunately we can only do this when we are in the dark as if the light we have to lose their power and we settle for firearms and other weapons mundane.

In addition to helping in every way we said, the snakes will eat the hearts of slain enemies (very nutritious if you look forward to devour it with that), something that will give experience points that will win new skills.

But we also have the presence of an imp who will accompany us during the game and give you a humorous, kicking bodies, jumping on the heads of enemies or even literally pissing on the dead.

Unfortunately we will not be the only ones who can use the powers of darkness, because our rivals also have access to them, putting things very complicated, when used against us.

Graphically it looks very dramatic, slightly reminding its colors and shading to comics, is that according to its developers told us his idea was that looked like a graphic novel.

The creatures of darkness, both who have joined us as enemies, are very well, getting a slick viscous effect. As for the scenarios we found what looked like an abandoned fair full of details, but it felt to be fairly linear.

Discuss the violence of the game is pretty graphic and we find dismemberment and other scenes not suitable for everyone, but by not seeking realism is not unpleasant.

I thought that The Darkness II has a great personality and is that the concept of darkness as well as giving a good background gives playable certain charisma and makes it different from other titles in the genre. Another thing we liked is that it seems that the sense of humor (very black, it must be said) is very present, which is always appreciated. Definitely a game to consider, especially for fans of the genre.

Indiana Jones could have had a mustache

If I say mustaches and Hawaiian shirts, what actor are you coming to mind? Exactly, Tom Selleck, who many know from his legendary role in 'private investigator Magnum' and have done Richard, the boyfriend of Monica (Courteney Cox) in the series Friends.

Well, although you may seem incredible, Selleck could have gone down in film history as the real Indiana Jones, an adventurer hat and whip well have worn a mustache.

View photos that have been made public, there is no doubt that the actor was presented with evidence to interpret the archaeologist. However, even got the part, decided to reject the movie because I had just signed a contract with the producers of the aforementioned 'Magnum, private investigator' that would not allow him much freedom of movement in the industry and forced him to concentrate on Filming of the series.

To top it off, after refusing to do Indiana Jones, the shooting of the series was delayed several months by a writers strike. The stoppage lasted just weeks that had been shooting 'Raiders of the Lost Ark'.

Everyone who has seen pictures of him wearing the typical clothes of Indiana as he tests the same: The times that must have given his head against the wall for not accepting the character! And to think I could have taken the role that became world famous Harrison Ford and filled his account with a zero ...

Anyway, Tom has not done too badly. After all, we have seen in films like "Three Men and a Baby 'or' Runaway 'and series like' Boston Legal '. It has also made several plays on Broadway and numerous television commercials.

Would you have liked to see Tom Selleck as Indy 'or anyone like Harrison Ford for the role?

The mecca of video game

The gaming industry remains the most potent of all that make up the "business of leisure." Surpasses the cinema, music and of course to the literature, at least as far as sales are concerned.

The statistics make it about 50% of the revenues of the entertainment industry going into the coffers of powerful gaming industry. A business needs a party so powerful to match. And there's no better place than Los Angeles.
E3 (Electronic Entertainment Expo) has been held at the Convention Center in the city since 1995, but has been duped with other locations such as Atlanta or the hotel area of ​​Santa Monica in his way. This fair is first seen everything, sooner or later, was a cultural phenomenon in all our homes, from the first Playstation, the Nintendo DS, Wii or Kinect.

At this fair, annually, about 50,000 people. And there are some 200 companies that pay a fortune to be seen in the endless corridors of the two pavilions.

In this issue we have highlighted three main elements, one in each of the core legs on which the whole industry is built. Microsoft has demonstrated his invention, Kinect, not only serves to encourage parties with friends. Games like Ghost Recon: Future Soldier or Mass Effect 3 have decided to take advantage of their functions. This will get unique experiences and expertise that significantly differ between platforms.

Sony has decided to shelve his PSP and has shown us the possibilities of PS Vita, a console that brings the world of handheld video games the world of high definition and also capture some essence of smartphones, for 3G meter consoles. Finally, Nintendo is tired of being copied and prepares to return to the copy (if you can) inventing a new platform, U Wii, allowing us to play with an additional screen.

Out of the backbones of the platforms, we see an environment, as in all areas of entertainment, not very original. This year, the big games are not sequels: they are third parties. We found Mass Effect 3, Batlefield 3, Resistance 3, Uncharted 3, Deus Ex 3, Modern Warfare 3 (well, actually, Call of Duty 8) ...

But also include games franchises much longer, as The Elder Scrolls V, Final Fantasy XIII-2 or Super Mario Bros 3-D (which would be the part 11, regardless of the Yoshi's Island, Paper Mario, or sports games plumber) . Enhanced versions of formulas that worked and that this year, come with something more than spectacle.

Finally, a small point. Although a few years ago the organization of the show decided to "censor" the show slightly to lower the sexist tone with which some speakers used in the models, the E3 is still one with the babes in the stands. It is virtually impossible to find a single speaker without a model made in LA in the vicinity. And they say that the female audience of video games is one of the objectives of this industry!

Impressions of BioShock for Xbox 360 Infinite

Without doubt the first Bioshock called attention to many, first by its refined appearance that recreated the city of Rapture to detail and really made us feel as visitors forced the second game for their system full of possibilities and finally (mentioning only the most important) for its graphic section full of personality. After a second by another team and that did not quite jell, Irrational Games return ready to go even further with the next installment in the series.

The game's story is well known. We are entrusted with the mission to rescue a girl from the flying city of Columbia, something easy, the problem will escape it alive ... This city is like flying a science fair that travels from country to country to show their progress, but soon discover that not everything is as nice as it sounds, finding, for example, two rival factions fighting to clean shot by the control of the city .

But back to what we are concerned, our mission, which will be to escape with the young Elisabeth of Columbia, complicated, and that something or someone to pursue relentlessly. Fortunately it will not just be someone to protect, but more than once will save his skin and should not worry about it, because you know care for myself.

As in the previous games in the series we will combine the use of weapons more or less traditional with the use of powers that will allow things like telekinesis or freezing, but not be the only ones, as we soon discover that Elisabeth stored inside it a great power that even she knows her limits.

Thus, at certain times of the game we ask you to use their powers to open a dimensional space and "bring" our world an object, like a turret with which to mow down our enemies. His powers will be very interesting but will have a price and using them is that she is dead, so it will be a time during which we can not count on it.

This relates a bit with the idea of ​​having to make decisions that was already present in the two previous games.

In this case, we must decide whether to use the powers of the youth at the expense of leaving dead or prefer reservárnoslos for a moment of life or death. But this will not be the only one who can decide and that our actions even in the medium term will depend on characters or events that occur, although neither of us be aware that we have been the trigger.

In the demo we saw and we met two times to choose from but having seen only one of the roads do not really know how our actions affect.

Although the relationship between the character and Elisabeth is one of the great innovations, not only from a gameplay standpoint, but from the script is giving much importance to the couple, not the only. On the one hand we have the most evident change of environments, and we left the dark, narrow and wet Rapture and we have welcomed the open and colorful Columbia.

The feeling in the city offers a totally different feeling to that experienced in other games started by the color of all and ending because everything is bigger and open. In addition we find that it is much less linear (without being an open world, of course) and gives us the sensation of exploring a city really incredible.

This feeling is heightened by the presence of civilians will be as normal while we do not put ourselves with them and will surely help to make everything more believable.

But we can not talk about the city without talking about another new game that is completely linked to it: the rails. And in certain points we find rails by which we can go full speed, flying over the city in a way that leaves you speechless because of its magnificence.

Graphically the game is the most spectacular we've seen, not only for its graphic power but also by the incredible artistic section is worthy of taking off his hat.

Columbia City looks real and every corner is full of details that makes it credible. The characters also have a high level and we still like his style a lot, especially because they make the game even more unique if possible.

We do not want to leave this section without mentioning how incredible the game looks when flying at full speed down the tracks and background see the city go by at full speed.

Do not lie if we say that since the beginning of the demo until the end we have been with the mouth more open than closed. Infinite Bioshock the truly spectacular and, as we have seen so far, offers things that no other game can offer today. There is still enough to make out the title, so it is too early to tell, but the feeling has left us is that the guys at Irrational Games have done it again and that will set the bar very very high, the clouds specifically.

Actors who leave their television sets

Actor Patrick Dempsey has said in an interview with the Italian edition of Vanity Fair "that could leave the series that made ​​him famous around the world in its eighth season.

"It will be my last season (...) I do not know what will happen with the other characters, but for me it will end at that time, "he said Dempsey.

However, Patrick's representative has clarified that his departure might be only temporary. In fact, due to the completion of his contract. "We do not know what will happen in the future, "he asserted.

Apparently, Shonda Rhimes, the creator of "Grey's Anatomy", wants to renew the characters in the ninth season. Therefore it is willing to dispense with the whole team of actors. Another has shown that it has not renewed is Ellen Pompeo, the alter ego of Meredith Grey.

But "Grey's Anatomy"is not the only series that will be modified. Hugh Laurie, star of "House", confessed a few weeks ago the Radio Times: "It seems that the end of this season will be the end of the series. "

As if this were not enough, Jessica Szohr not be on the next season of "Gossip Girl. " "My character had reached a ceiling, what else could explain or show it? It would be almost ridiculous to continue, "he said. And another one leaves the same boat is Taylor Momsen, who wants to focus on his music career.

Competitions TV: between entertainment and abuse

To what extent should a program break down the barriers of good taste to increase your audience?
A television program in the Philippines goes through this path and faces charges of sexual abuse.

Willing Willie is the kind of program that is widely popular throughout the world. Members of the public act before the cameras, while the audience motivates them.

But the show was taken off the air in April, after showing a child of six years simulating a strip tease.

The show's host, Willie Revillame, pushed the child to undress the child even though the tears were streaming.

The audience seemed indifferent to what happened to the child and laughed and cheered at the same host.

It later emerged that the child's family, like most of the audience, are poor and came to the show for the money that was offered.

Human rights organizations condemned the act.

"It is a form of sexual abuse," said Magnolia Jacinto, Asia spokesman for the organization against child trafficking.

"The children's human rights were not respected. In fact they were violated," said Jacinto.

Its organization and several other government submitted together a lawsuit against Revillame and TV5, the channel that broadcasts the program.

Revillame issued a statement apologizing to those who rated the offensive program, but it has a similar program on the air: Will Time Bigtime (The big time Will).

And the fans are firmly on your side. Lines of people waiting for hours outside the headquarters of the channel with the hope of being part of the audience.

"I come here regularly since the program began 15 years ago. I try to come at all I can," says Lourdes Bartolome, who describes herself as a major supporter of Revillame.

"I felt remorseful when I saw what happened to the child, but it is Willy's fault. The people who criticize are jealous of his success. He helps many poor people."

The hallmark of the program is the money that is offered to participants and because of that people love it.

A quarter of the Philippine population live on less than a dollar a day and in this context, it is no wonder that people travel for hours in hopes of participating in the program.

In 2006, before the episode of an old Willie Revillane program, Wowowee, tens of thousands of people crowded outside the channel because it promised to provide even more money.

The crowd swirled and tried to enter the canal, the guards closed the doors and as a result 74 people died.

Since then, many have criticized the format of their programs, but that has not stopped they are becoming increasingly popular.

Already there are several areas in the Philippines that follow this model. But are they helping the poor or rather taking advantage of the desperation of the people?.

Film director Joey Reyes, one critic said that these programs exploit the fact that people look for some hope.

Reyes noted that often those who earn the most money are those who have the saddest stories, which he considered almost as "a celebration of poverty."

Despite critical reviews, the fact is that the Filipino audience loves this program. As happens in other parts of the world, have more fans than educational programs.

All countries face the dilemma of resolving the extent to which television should educate as well entertain.

When added to the mix extreme poverty and people are willing to do almost anything to appear on these programs, finding a balance between entertainment and exploitation of that reality becomes just as important.

In 2015 there will be 15,000 million Internet TV

Hybrid or television, which is the same, with an Internet connection, is poised to become, after DTT equipment or High Definition, essential in a household appliance in the near future, to the extent that 2015 is expected to have between 12,000 and 15,000 million 'screens' connected to the Internet, more than double the world population predicted by the director of the 'Future Casting & Experience Research' on Intel, Brian Johnson.

For that year, there will be about 500,000 million hours of TV content available worldwide that can be seen in some of these 'screens' and therefore, most likely, "the television will remain an important part" of the routine people, but "is not going to be television lifetime," said the expert during the opening of the conference 'The New Television. The hybrid revolution ', organized by the Spanish Association of Interactive Television (AEDETI).

Data on the number of televisions connected to the Internet and available content are part of several studies conducted by research group led by Brian Johnson Intel face trying to find how what is consumed in a few years television worldwide.

In this sense, Johnson is scheduled to television in a few years, and audiovisual content, is "a mix of games, applications, social networking." Furthermore, "the TV will not be alone in the television", but can be consumed through various screens, such as mobile phones, tablets or laptops.

However, the main difference to the expert, including the current television and in 2015 will be that the latter "is primarily social." Thus, he was convinced that television will become a "platform" through which people may "socialize with friends" and even perform administrative procedures with the Government or study. "It will serve to connect the world as a whole," summed.

Also, with 500,000 million hours of TV content available, you will need to "use computer intelligence" installed or connected to the television to "help select" user "what you like among all these programs." The same logic may also apply to advertising on television is issued and to "apply directly to the consumer," taking into account the tastes that has informed the choice of the content you see.
