Going toe-to-toe with the biggest FPS franchise in history is no small feat, but EA have certainly brought it big time with Battlefield 3. Exploding into the holiday season right alongside direct competition, this is the best time of the year for FPS fans.

METAL HURLANT CHRONICLES brings the biggest & the baddest “B” stars

METAL HURLANT CHRONICLES is an upcoming action Sci-Fi series based on the METAL HURLANT magazine (also known as HEAVY METAL).

The series trailer looks a lot like the recent sword and sandals gory action series Spartacus: Blood and Sand. While the episode teasers (specifically Red Light) have much more focus on the Sci-Fi elements.

The cast is the most impressive aspect, starring cult action favourites like David Belle (District B13, creator of Parkour), Scott Adkins (Undisputed 1 & 2), and Michael Jai White (Black Dynamite, Spawn).

If you want to take part in future hash tag games be sure to follow @SpaceMeatAU or myself (@LiamJM) and keep an eye out.

Join the Space Meat writing team!


We’ve been using this image for over 4 years and it’s still not funny!

You may have noticed the recent increase in competitions and decrease in articles on the site. The reason behind this is we continue to get contacted by friendly PR companies and publishers, which is without a doubt fantastic news.

However, personally fantastic but organisationally frustrating is the continued success of each member of the Space Meat team, which results in us all having less and less time to write articles and reviews.

To combat the oncoming fiend that is real life, we are looking to swell the ranks, bring in flesh blood, troll for newbs, etc.

If you think you have what it takes to get paid nothing, have your scratchings crudely edited and slapped onto a 12th rate entertainment blog, APPLY NOW! Details below: Read more [+]

The sci-fi action comedy ATTACK THE BLOCK will soon be hitting Australian cinemas and we have a competition to celebrate the release of this instant cult hit.

ATTACK THE BLOCK – only at the movies December 1

It’s inner city versus outer space and HARRY BROWN meets WAR OF THE WORLDS when aliens drop in on a London housing project and the only line of defence against the extraterrestrial invaders is a group of teenage hoodlums.

The sci-fi comedy ATTACK THE BLOCK begins as trainee nurse Sam is walking home and is robbed by a gang of hooded youths. She’s saved when the gang are distracted by a bright meteorite, which falls from the sky and hits a nearby parked car. A small alien creature leaps from the wreckage and the gang chase and kill it, dragging its ghoulish carcass to the top of the block… but bigger, more savage beasts are on the way and the estate is about to become a battleground. The hit of this year’s South By Southwest Festival, ATTACK THE BLOCK is destined for cult status and is “one of the best sci-fi/comedy/horror/action mash-ups you’re ever going to see (Collider).”

Review | Kaiba


Available now on DVD from Siren Visual

To all people out there, in one way or another memories are important to them. They allow us to remember, absorb life experiences and learn. Experiences and memories are our own and uniquely ours to reflect on. That said, what if that could be changed? What if memories could be modified, removed or added in order to create a more enjoyable life or even change opinion?

Now this idea of memory modification has been tackled before in movies such as The Matrix and Inception yet it’s a concept anime hasn’t really touched all that much. Kaiba, published in Australia by Siren Visual and created by Madhouse under the direction of Masaaki Yuasa (Tatami Galaxy, Shin-chan) explores a reality where bodies and memories can be changed, stored or stolen depending on the intent. Siren have continued along the path of releasing more unique anime titles, bringing out Kaiba as a 12 episode DVD box collection. Read more [+]
