Casting Call: Who Should Play Who in Resident Evil: Afterlife

400°
246w ago - TheBBPS nominates who they want to play who in the coming fourth installment of the popular Resident Evil film franchsie, entitled Resident Evil: Afterlife, as follows:

Alice

Whether or not you like her character, this one's already been confirmed. The sultry Milla Jovovich will be reprising her role as the sexy asskicking genetically engineered supersoldier, Alice.

Since as of now Alice has been the only confirmed returning character, everyone from here on is either rumored or made up by yours truly.

Jill Valentine

Fans of the films may have noticed that Jill Valentine was surprisingly absent from Resident Evil: Extinction. In fact, it was like she never even existed. Apparently, due to scheduling conflicts with the dreadful Eragon film, Sienna had to decline when asked to reprise her role as Jill.

For Extinction, the writers completely left Jill out of the story to make it possible to bring her back in later films. And since I think it's safe to assume that we won't be seeing more Eragon in the near future, there's a good chance Sienna will be returning in Afterlife.

Leon S. Kennedy

Rumors have been circulating for awhile now that Resident Evil 4's main protagonist may be appearing in the fourth Resident...

Absurd, Strange, and Highly Improbable Life Goal: Will You Help?

250°
261w ago - So I recently came up with something I can do that would let me die accomplished: I want to play a game that was never programmed.

I've been thinking about it for about a week now, but haven't done much research on it but I came to these few conclusion so far:

• The game will essentially be "randomly" created
• The simplest "terminal" for the project would be NES
• The generated file should be between 5KB and 25KB, and follow the rules for zip compression. (This is the part that makes everything improbable -there are 7.4583407 E1125 possible files that could be produced (expanded example below) (25000^256))
• The production of the file will have a initial seed, and ideally keep a log of tested values
• Ideally a check on the NES ROM should also be performed.
• With the number of possibilities, the likelyhood of a game being produced is just as probable as a picture Pam Anderson loading up or even the first few lines of a Shakespeare play, or Beethoven's Symphony.
• A user in control of the produced random value can copy/paste, a known value, and easily load a game such TETRIS...(I can't quite understand if this would be violation of Copyright Law (I compare it to throwing a tomato on the ground and it coming out being just like Mario))
 

Sony Contemplating Lawsuit Over Change4Life Ad

400°
267w ago - If you haven't figured it out, the child is playing a video game with a controller similar to those of Sony's PlayStation brand.

Why is this such an issue? The company who was in charge of the ad, The Gate, did not seek permission from the gaming giant in order to utilize the obvious likeness of its controller.

The Change4Life ad campaign has been started by the British government in order to bring attention to the negative effects of a sedentary lifestyle. The image, which depicts a young child playing video games, gives off the impression that playing video games instead of going outside may lead to an early death.

A handful of other prominent companies in the gaming industry have already spoken out against this ad, including Sega, Atari, Future Publishing, TIGA, ELSPA and MCV.

It's not set in stone yet whether or not SCEE plans on going through with legal action against either The Gate or potentially the British government itself, but the image is definitely provocative from a gamer's point of view. That's not to say we don't value exercise - we love our sports and physical activities as much as everyone else - but gaming can certainly be part of a healthy lifestyle.

We'll be sure to watch closely as this develops.
