WonderCon 2015 Dead Rising: Watchtower Roundtable with Jesse Metcalfe

WonderCon 2015 has come and gone but that doesn’t mean the Comic Issues crew had all the fun! Dead Rising: Watchtower is a movie based on the wildly entertaining video game zombie survival franchise Dead Rising. The movie follows “ace” reporter Chase Carter (Jesse Metcalfe) as he tries to survive a zombie outbreak in a quarantine zone. Along the way he meets Crystal (Meghan Ory), a woman infected by the zombie virus who maintains her humanity through the use of a special medication. They are also joined by Maggie (Virginia Madsen), a mother who is on the brink of insanity. The trio band together and try to fight their way out of the dangerzone as Chase’s camerawoman, Jordan (Keegan Connor Tracy) tries to find a way to rescue them with the help of General Lyons (Dennis Haysbert). The movie contains twists and turns and is generally a delight to watch!

Pixelated Geek Presents TriPod! Season One Episode Six – 4.15.2015.

Review: Axiom Verge

Review: Axiom Verge

When it comes to action-platformers with gated progression (a.k.a. metroidvania) style games, 2015 has been good to us. PS4 owners got their hands on Apotheon earlier this year, then came Ori and the Blind Forest on Xbox One and PC, and now PS4 owners also get Axiom Verge.

Created and developed by Thomas Haap, a one-man development team, Axiom Verge takes elements from classic action platformers such as Contra, Bionic Command, and Metroid to create a game that looks and feels as though the three gave birth to a weird hybrid. The game visually takes multiple queues from the Metroid series, from its dark and lonely atmosphere, to its haunting and, at times, jarring soundtrack. It has the shooting mechanics and various weapons that reminded me of Contra. And it literally gives you a bio-organic arm to use to swing around with, (cough) Bionic Commando (cough). Though I’m sure the gun isn’t made from anyone’s loved one.
