Funcom has let the secret out of the bag. The Secret World (review) is now available for PC and players everywhere are invited into this modern-day MMO game. Read on for all the details you need to get you geared up! Let the conspiracies begin!

From the Press Release
Will you enlist in the Illuminati, the Dragon or the Templars and fight for the power to rule the world? Today, award-winning independent developer and publisher of online games Funcom, and EA Partners, a division of Electronic Arts Inc., (NASDAQ: EA) have opened the doors to the modern-day massively multiplayer online (MMO) game, The Secret World. The game is now available on PC worldwide for $49.99 USD.

Leading up to launch, The Secret World has garnered very positive attention from the gaming public and press as one of the most anticipated MMOs in development. Its real-world, modern day setting, combined with a rich and immersive story and an innovative freeform progression system, without levels or classes, has led Massively.com to call the The Secret World, “…fantastic, refreshing, and unique…” and MMORPG claimed “The Secret World is going to take the world by storm and set new standards for excellence in gameplay….” The game has also been singled out as one of the most anticipated games of 2012 by outlets such as G4TV, VideoGamer and RockPaperShotgun.

The Secret World is the first MMO set in a real, modern-day world where every conspiracy theory, fable and urban legend is true. The power to rule the world is fought over by three secret societies – the Illuminati, Templars and Dragon – that pull the strings of governments, corporations and CEOs. In the game, players will travel the globe – from New York and London, to Egypt and Transylvania – as they fight the evil that has infiltrated myths and folklore for centuries; including Dracula, werewolves and even the Bogeyman himself.

“We are proud and very excited to launch The Secret World with Funcom,” said Sinjin Bain, Vice President, EA Partners. “This is truly a unique offering in the MMO genre, and we’re confident players are going to love exploring familiar locations in a real, contemporary world as they uncover the game’s many secrets and wonderful story.”

“Community reception for The Secret World has exceeded our expectations and exceeded all Funcom’s previous records with over 1.5 million beta sign ups,” said Trond Arne Aas, CEO of Funcom. “This launch represents years of hard work here at Funcom and we are thrilled to share this unique immersive experience with players around the world.”

Creative Director and Senior Producer of Funcom, Ragnar Tørnquist, added: “The Secret World puts its own twist on real world stories, myths and legends and we cannot wait for players to dive in deeper and unravel the mysteries that are showcased throughout the game first-hand.”
Included with the purchase of every copy of The Secret World is 30 days of access to the game, which players can continue to play through subscribing at $14.99 USD per month.

You can visit the official The Secret World website to learn more about the game.

Night of the Living Dead 4K and The Silence of the Lambs Come to the Criterion Collection

Published

on

It’s been a long time coming for these two classics, especially Night of the Living Dead after the ridiculously bad transfer put out by Mill Creek Entertainment, whose transfer was supposedly remastered from a new 2K scan. I swear I thought it was some kind of a joke when I first put it on to watch. In any event…

IndieWire is reporting that horror classics Night of the Living Dead and The Silence of the Lambs will be added to the 2018 Criterion Collection, a hallmark label for home video cinephiles.

According to the site, Criterion will release a new 4K digital restoration of The Silence of the Lambs, which has been approved by the movie’s cinematographer Tak Fujimoto. Included on the DVD and Blu-ray sets are 35 minutes of deleted scenes and audio commentary from 1994 featuring the late Jonathan Demme (director), stars Jodie Foster and Anthony Hopkins, screenwriter Ted Tally, and former FBI agent John Douglas.

Night of the Living Dead will also be released in 4K with never-before-seen 16mm dailies included as a bonus feature(!).

These will be added in February of 2018 so make sure you save up some cash after the holidays!

DIS Review – Not for the Faint of Heart!

Published

on

Starring Bill Oberst, Jr., Lori Jo Hendrix, Peter Gonzales Falcon

Directed by Adrian Corona


I’ve made this claim many a time on this website before, and in the company of film friends as well: Bill Oberst Jr. is one of those actors that can literally be thrust into ANY role, and deliver a performance with so much harnessed electricity that you couldn’t believe that it was possible. I was the lucky recipient chosen to get a look at his latest project, titled DIS, and I think that I can honestly say – this is the stuff that nightmares are constructed of.

Directed by Adrian Corona, this 60-minute dive into the black depths of hell, and in actuality DIS is located between circles # 6 and 9 in Dante’s Divine Comedy, and trust me when I tell you – there’s not a shred of comedic relief in this demented presentation. Oberst Jr plays an ex-soldier named Ariel, and his seemingly harmless jaunt through the woods will become anything but that, and judging from the film’s opening scenes, you are meant to feel as uncomfortable about this watch as any you might have checked out in recent memory.

Perversion is the norm here, and lord help you if you’re caught where you shouldn’t be…my skin’s crawling just thinking about what I saw. Ariel’s travels are basically dialogue-free, but it only adds to the infinite levels of creepiness – you can tell he’s being stalked, and the distance between he and the horrors that await are closing in rather quickly.

Visually by itself, this hour-long chiller can sell tickets without any assistance – hollowed-out buildings and long sweeping shots of a silent forest give the movie that look of complete desolation. Sliced up into three acts, the film wastes no time in setting up the story of a killer needing fresh blood to appease his Mandrake garden – seriously guys, I can’t type as much flashy stuff as there needs to be in order to describe this innately disturbing production.

If you’re one of those types who tends to shy away from the graphic side of things, then I’d HIGHLY advise you to keep your TV tuned to the Hallmark Channel for some holiday entertainment, because this one registers high on the “I can’t believe someone thought of this” meter. So the quick recap is this: Oberst Jr in a standout performance, visual excellence, and an unshakable sense of debasement on a cellular level – keep the kiddies out of the living room with this one. Corona should be lauded (or locked up – just kidding) for his work on this one – HIGHLY recommended, and one that I’ll throw down as a top 5 for me in 2017.

Summary

Director Corona should be lauded (or locked up – just kidding) for his work on this one – HIGHLY recommended!
