A foobear is cross between a pug dog (sometimes referred to as a “foo” dog) and the bear part being a horribly overweight guy who likes to refer to himself in the third person. The 408 ending is just an area code reference…so chew on that, it’s delicious.
Now that we have that out of the way, let me get directly to the point, fearless reader. The reason why we even come to this blog. The reason we huddle together in dark basements and even darker living rooms. It’s the reason I sit on my couch during most weekends and hiss like a vampire when my girlfriend opens the curtains or turns on a light. That little black technological wonder – the Playstation 3.
Recently over the holiday weekend, I had the distinct pleasure of my girlfriends’ parents stay with us. Her stepdad enjoys watching gameplay on my super awesome tv, usually commenting on the graphics and how smooth everything looks. It was then time to open presents on Christmas morning and low and behold I received the new Logitech 960 wireless headset as well as other mind exploding gifts. So as you can imagine I was eager to set up these ear goggles and rushed with baited breath and begin the daunting task of setting this headset up with my little black friend.
There has been a lot of talk about an Uncharted movie as of late especially when fans learned that Mark Wahlberg was set to play the action hero in the Uncharted series. One fan, even took it straight to David O. Russell the director that is behind the video game’s adaption to the big screen. Like many others he asked the director to reconsider staring Mark Wahlberg as the main hero and instead give the role to Nathan Fillion. Honestly there was a major out cry about this, I remember seeing tweet after tweet how disappointed fans were with the casting. The dust has seemed to settle but it appears that there is a glimmer of hope still, a glimmer that Nathan Fillion might still be a possibility for the movie.
When Joystiq interviewed Justin Richmond the Game’s Director and told him that they along with the masses wanted Nathan Fillion for the role he responded with the following:
Mark Wahlberg isn’t anywhere near to being confirmed to play Nathan Drake either — it’s just Hollywood scuttlebutt, apparently. Still, I dutifully told Richmond that the Joystiq Biomass had chosen, and Nathan Fillion has our vote. Message received, Richmond responded.
Looks like a treasure trove of PSOne games are headed our way via North America’s PSN. The following games were just rated by ESRB which means they are more then likely on the way for us to enjoy on the PS3 or PSP.
Arc the Lad III
R4 Ridge Racer Type 4
Threads of Fate
In this flick Jeff Rubenstein speaks with the Creative Director Amy Hennig and Game Director Justin Richmond. Really like what I heard about the multiplayer.
