The RE6 forces emblems – High quality enamelled zinc alloy emblems of the three main protagonists (Leon, Chris & Jake) squad insignias, mounted and set in a limited numbered frame authenticated with signatures from Senior producer Hiroyuki Kobayashi , Producer Yoshiaki Hirabayashi and RE6 Director Eiichiro Sasaki
All of the above amazing goodies are bundled together in the ‘Needle Bomb’ collectors box (as seen in the RE6 announce trailer) with lenticular images
Will I pick it up? The game definitely, as I was a huge fan of RE5. In fact it’s one of my favourite games on the Xbox 360, mostly due to it’s incredibly intense couch co-op.
Will I pick up the Collector’s Edition? Maybe, the art book, emblems and hoodie are cool but everything else is just filler. So ultimately like most things it will come down to price… which has yet to be announced.
A limited number of the Resident Evil 6: Collector’s Editions will be available for pre-order in Australia through EB Games and JB Hi-Fi.
Melbourne is lucky enough to get a plethora of pop and geek culture events each year but if you’re anything like me, it’s never enough!
Now just a week away is one of the most exciting events to hit Australia: Oz Comic-Con.
Oz Comic-Con is an expo featuring content from all genres of pop-culture, featuring film and television stars, comic book and anime artists, gaming demonstrations and cosplay competitions, and even creative workshops and master classes. But of course the main draw will be the stars themselves, so I’ve put together a must see, greet and photograph list of stars that are attending Oz Comic-Con. Read more [+]

At the Jay & Silent Bob Get Old performance in Melbourne, Australia, Kevin Smith shed some new light on the animated project his long-term ‘heterosexual life-partner’ actor Jason Mewes has been working on for the past six months in collaboration with Steve Stark the creator of the popular YouTube series SModimation, which takes audio clips from the shows on Smith’s podcast network & animates them wonderfully.
The project is a movie called Jay & Silent Bob’s Super Groovy Cartoon Movie, that will be a blend of animation and live action footage featuring Smith & Mewes, adapted by Mewes from a script Smith had written years earlier. The project will mark the first time the pair have donned the costumes of their iconic characters since the closing chapter of Smith’s ‘New Jersey Chronicles’ film saga, 2006′s Clerks 2.
No word has been put forth yet as to a release window or distribution platform for the project, but if there’s one thing we know about Kevin Smith it’s that he’ll be shouting from the rooftops about it the second both are a lock. I for one cannot wait!

Asura’s Wrath was a game I’d little followed since its announcement as generally I hold little interest in games so intensely ‘Japanese’, so when a review copy fell into my lap I ventured into the experience largely blind. This is a rare thing for me and something I’m starting to really appreciate in this age of perpetual hype and teasers upon teasers leading up to release, but I digress.
You are Asura, one of eight generals in the demi-god army of some-such, defending the space Karma Fortress against the impure Gohma who are disliked for their impurity or something. Read more [+]
It’s not often a team of people can create a machinima series and really make it work. Make it stick through so many years of episodes and content to the point where it crosses between games in a franchise and becomes a true part of the franchise itself. Read more [+]
Todd Phillips is one of the most successful writer/director/producer’s in the adult-oriented comedy movie scene these days with huge box office winners to his name such as Old School, Road Trip and The Hangover films, but years before all the hits and fame he assembled with the help of fellow director Andrew Gurland a curious little documentary for HBO about the American college fraternity experience.
Frat House was the result and it has the dubious honour of being the only doc commissioned by HBO that never actually ended up going to air even after winning the Grand Jury Prize for Documentary at the 1998 Sundance film festival.
A controversy arose around the events depicted being so extreme that many people refused to believe they were not staged, even in spite of Phillips and Gurland’s assurances that everything that captured was completely real and that they often could not believe what they were witnessing themselves.
After passing into near myth and legend, the film has finally emerged online in its entirety and is well worth the 1 hours watch. It’s a really great and darkly entertaining piece that also has the added benefit now of providing insight into a lot of where Phillips’s later fictional works came from.
