Space Nazi film Iron Sky to premiere in Berlin!

Space Nazis, oh yes please!

The Finnish film-makers behind the odd Star Trek parody, Star Wreak: In the Pirkinning have been hard at work on their space Nazi comedy flick, Iron Sky.

Iron Sky tells the semi-plausable story of a modern day Nazi invasion from their secret base on the dark side of the moon, where they have laid in wait for almost 70 years.

The film is a joint production between Blind Spot Pictures and Energia Productions in Finland,  27 Films in Germany and New Holland Pictures in Australia. .

The film will premiere at the 62nd Berlin International Film Festival which runs from the 9th to the 19th of February. Considering how sensitive Germans are about their Nazi past, the film is sure to get  few tongues wagging and knock a few jaws out of joint.

CoD Elite DLC incoming

More multiplayer mayhem

Well, the holidays are over and I’m still nowhere near finishing Skyrim. I did finally manage to get through the first Company of Heroes game, so that’s one down, eight to go. I was wondering how to start the year off when Activision reminded  me about that Call of Duty Elite premium thingy a paid a fortune for.

When I purchased my premium membership pass for Activision’s Call of Duty Elite I questioned why I’d bothered. You see I’m not the best CoD player out there; sure I have my moments, but I not a stats hungry virtual tactician or anything like that. I hardly have the time to play the bloody game least have the time to study a load of old guff in the hope that it’ll gain me a positive kill/death ratio.

I did however, quite like the idea of effectively paying up front for the Modern Warfare 3  DLC, and getting it early to boot. Continue reading CoD Elite DLC incoming

Merry Christmas from State of Play

Have a happy gaming Christmas!

Here’s wishing you all a merry Christmas from me, Vic B’Stard and StateofPlay.co.nz.

I’ve been a bit quiet of late playing Skyrim, getting right into COD:MW3 multiplayer and catching up with my Blu-rays.

I’ll be back soon, but in the meantime check out my Assassin’s Creed Revelations review on techday.com, here.

Catch you later!

Skyrim: Fantastic “Dragonborn” song cover

I just can't get enough Skyrim!

As you may already know, I’m loving Skyrim at the mo’. I’m right into it and playing it on the Xbox 360 and the PC.

A little while ago I came across this cover version of the in-game song “The Dragonborn Comes” which you’ll often here bards singing inside the various drinking holes scattered across the province of Skyrim. If you’ve not heard it, you can always approach the bard and request it (another reason why Skyrim is so awesome). Continue reading Skyrim: Fantastic “Dragonborn” song cover

Vic B’Stard’s week in review: game patches, Skyrim, Weta Cave, Tintin and Assassin’s Creed Revelations

Vic B'Stard
I like Skyrim...a lot!

Game patches are, generally speaking, a good thing. Being human, we all make mistakes. At least when a mistake is made in a bit of game code, developers have the opportunity to fix things.

At the moment I’m patching Battlefield 3 on the very same laptop that I’m writing this text. I’ve already patched the game on my desktop. I say patched, but we are not talking about a couple of megabytes here. The patch for EA’s shooter weighs in at around 4GB. In little old NZ where nobody actually has any money to spare and internet data is closely monitored (as well as charged for at ridiculous rates), EA’s 4GB patch will eat into a considerable amount of the average Kiwi’s meager internet data limit.

Lucky me then, as most of my business is carried out via the intertubes, I have a larger that usual data limit giving me the luxury of downloading the same astronomical patch twice. But even I, in an attempt to limit my internet bill, tried to lower my internet data cap last month; only to raise it back up this month.

Doctor Who Christmas Special- mini prequel video

Doctor Who Logo
Christmas Who soon!

Now I love a bit of Doctor Who. Granted it’s an acquired taste and yes, you probably shouldn’t bother taking another look at any old Who prior to Paul McGann’s TV movie in the 1990s.

A few years ago I had another go on my favorite Tom Baker story, Logopolis (which saw the be-scafed one transform into Tristram from All Creatures Great and Small), not good; some things are best left to nostalgic memories. The same goes for Terry Nation’s Blake’s Seven. Continue reading Doctor Who Christmas Special- mini prequel video

Batman: Arkham City skin pack released

Batman-Arkham-City1
Meet the Batmen!

Warner Interactive have released the Batman skin pack for the Xbox 360 version of Batman: Arkham City.

I download it last night, having already enjoyed running around Arkham City as the old, bloated Batman from The Dark Knight Returns that I got with the collector’s edition.

Here’s what Warners had to say about it:
