Say what you want about Ridley Scott, but you have to admit one thing: the man is great at making movies. The genre-bending films he creates have captured our imaginations, scared the piss out of us, and made us hate Julius Caesar. His latest sci-fi/horror epic “Prometheus” does all but one of these things (guess which one it is), while telling a great story and displaying some dazzling special effects–but it didn’t live up to its hype.

To be successful, you need to persevere to achieve your goals. Just kidding, it’s all about who you know – and you can’t deny that fact. So what happens when losers like me don’t have the right connections? Well, the world is full of throw-away jobs, and they will be your primary source of income until you gain friends in high places. But for now, you’re stuck faking a smile to people who spend a fortune and drive away in a brand new Porsche. Read more of this post

So maybe it was just wishful thinking that led us to believe Playstation was about to announce God Of War 4. I was looking forward to seeing the next chapter in Kratos’ life, after the chaotic ending of the third game. But it turns out we’ll never know what happens. The teaser that Playstation put up on their Facebook page was in fact advertising a new God Of War game, but SURPRISE, it’s another prequel. Read more of this post

On Wednesday, April 11th, PlayStation mysteriously changed their Facebook cover photo to this enigmatic image. For those of you who can’t read (which is hopefully none of you, otherwise what are you doing on this site?), it says is big beautiful letters “Will Vengeance Bring Redemption? 04.19.12” Rumors have been flying left and right about what it might represent, and about 90% of said rumors are pointing to God Of War 4.

I can watch this over and over and over again. If you listen close enough, you can hear me having a heart attack in the stands. The good kind.

The time has come. The NFL playoffs are in full swing, and the 49ers are finally back in the mix. After a pathetic eight years without a playoff appearance, the red and gold have claimed the number 2 seed with a 13-3 record. That’s quite an improvement from last season’s record, which was a sad 6-10. The team’s turn-around can be attributed to one thing: a new coaching staff. Namely, head coach Jim Harbaugh. He’s definitely the right man for the job. The Niners needed an offensively-minded coach, and Harbaugh, being a former NFL quarterback and former Stanford head coach, was a no-brainer. The team also brought over a few other coaches from Stanford, and it has translated into many, many wins. The talent was there all along, it just wasn’t being utilized correctly. They now have the number one ranked defense in the NFL, and an offense that plays well enough to win every game. And that’s why they’re going to beat the Saints.

When it comes to health, I’m not the most fortunate person on the planet. In this year alone I have been to the hospital seven times–four of those times being within the past three weeks. It’s safe to say that I’m a medical mystery, and I’ll probably end up on one of those “Mystery Diagnosis” shows one day. The 2011 holiday season was a bad one for me. I caught a cold, then got the flu a week later, then caught strep throat 2 weeks after that. This is where things took a turn for the shitty. The strep bacteria caused an infection in my tonsils, which the doctors had to slice open to drain the puss out. Not once, not twice, but three times. When the infection came back a fourth time the day after Christmas, the doctors gave the order to just remove my tonsils altogether. So into surgery I went.

Nerdvember just passed, so that means there is a multitude of killer games hitting store shelves. And I’m not talking about Call of Duty or Battlefield 3, or any other over-hyped shooter. On the 15th, the crack team at Ubisoft Montreal released Assassin’s Creed Revelations. With less than a year in development, it was going to be interesting to see what they did with the game, and the direction the story took. Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood came out at this time last year, also after only one year of development, and that game kicked ass. So did Ubisoft pull off another masterpiece in a relatively short time? Yes, they totally did. Read more of this post

Check out our newest guest contribution coming to you from Justin Mutch of Union City, CA. Want to write for Wrecked? Find out how here.
These days, originality in video games is a bit hard to come by. With new (and equally generic) Call of Duty clones being released what seems like every week, avid gamers need something fresh to chew on. Luckily there are a few franchises that vanquish the repetitive nature of games like those that focus solely on multiplayer. InFamous 2 came out on June 7th, and for anyone with a PS3 who likes variety in games, this was a momentous occasion. The first game was a massive hit, and the plot definitely called for a sequel. So after two years of waiting, we finally get to see Cole’s next struggle to save another city. Or destroy it.
