Captain America: the video game

After nearly 20 years Marvel’s Iconic Super Hero

Captain America  Stars in an Original WWII Video Game
The Adventure Captain America: Super Soldier

I have been a Fan of old wing head since I was 9 years old and playing the classic sega game Captain America and the Avengers for Sega Genesis allowed me to be Cap. if you asked Fans of  Captain America would they ever make a WW2 video game about Cap they would say NO! but thanks to Sega we get just that

Penned by Marvel writer  Christos Gage, Captain America: Super Soldier Lets Players Become Captain America, the Ultimate Super-Soldier,Facing the Red Skull and His Forces.

SEGA® of America, Inc and SEGA®, Europe Ltd. today announced they will bring Marvel Entertainment’s famed Super Hero franchise Captain America™ to video game systems in an original WWII adventure, Captain America: Super Soldier. The title is scheduled for release in 2011 on the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system, PSP® (PlayStation® Portable) system, Wii™ and Nintendo DS™.

Did I mention I LOVE SEGA !!!

(official info)

Players will become Captain America as he faces the Red Skull and his army in an epic third- person action adventure set in the darkest days of World War II. Wielding Captain America’s legendary shield, gamers will engage in free-flowing combat and acrobatic platforming to infiltrate Hydra’s mysterious castle and battle the infamous Iron Cross, the forces of Hydra, and a host of nefarious enemies serving the Red Skull. As the First Avenger himself, players must defeat the evil scientist Arnim Zola and his wartime experiments, combining powerful melee combos and shield attacks to devastating effect.

Captain America: Super Soldier combines a highly athletic combat system with fluid platforming and a highly tuned suite of shield attacks, as Cap explores a massive castle turned military installation. His shield can be employed in numerous ways: taking out multiple enemies at once, deflecting incoming fire back at enemies, solving puzzles, and scaling walls. Players will be able to launch shield-first into the fray with the superior force of the world’s first Super-Soldier at their fingertips—and they’ll need every bit of that strength to overcome a castle that’s both an acrobatic playground for the Captain’s physical prowess and a house of mystery with enemies and danger at every turn.


The original story for Captain America: Super Soldier is being penned by noted comic, film, and TV writer Christos Gage. The primary writer for the Marvel’s Avengers: The Initiative series of comics, Gage has written numerous books for major Marvel characters, including Siege: Captain America, Iron Man, X-Men, Spider-Man, Civil War: House of M, and Union Jack.

Gage wrote his original story for Captain America: Super Soldier so that the setting exists within the same world as the upcoming movie of the same name, but he infused the game with immersive twists designed to enhance gameplay with all-new cinematic action sequences.

I Can’t wait for the release of this game, 2011 is the year of Captain America.

Lance Cade

I don’t do this often but I wanna talk about lance cade, as much as I am done watching WWE’s product until christian cage wins championship gold. It’s become pretty clear that people go either one of two ways on this subject, I do want to point out that this is a full grown man not a teenage kid. So, many people on wrestling forum sites that want to blame lance’s father or Vinny Mac both need to stop it.

sorry for whats next but these are two posts I saw on a site

against Lance’s dad

Sorry Mr McNaught, but you #$@ked up big time by saying that stupid **it. McMahon paid for your son’s rehab twice – that’s at least twice more than you did pal. Why didn’t you pull your son away from the business or the person who you now apparently seek to blame for his death? Hmmmmm?
I hate to kick a guy when he’s lost his son, but the fact remains that the McMahon family were not his ***ing babysitters or carers or counsellors….that was YOUR fuc**** job

And against WWE/F

Good for Mr. McNaught. Please defend the honor of you son who gave his body and sould to the WWE. and what did the wallstreet Wrestling Entertainment do for him? Nothing, nada, zip, zilch.

WWE treated his they way they treated chyna, umaga, kanyon, scott hall, hawk….the name go on and on.
WWE does NOt provide their “superstars”
with NOtongueension,healthcare,401 k,union

what is this…iran?

If you don’t know what I’m talking about here it is, lance cade died @ age 29. He was married and had kids.

WWE paid for two rehabs and in early 2010 fired him. A few weeks ago he was found dead of ”heart faliure”

Some sites wish to blame WWE for their lack of care for WWE’s fallen talent . It’s a strong debate and the main argument is WWE created a wellness program to weed out future problems similar to this very situation. also giving the workers a rehab choice (is awesome) but how many wrestlers really get helped?

For the record for many many years I was a WWF/E mark.

I am not now,Not because of Lance Cade. the product isn’t geared towards the type of fan I am.

(getting back on subject sorry)

the road life of these guys and gals is sick and none reading this will ever fully grasp it. I know I can’t nor do I ever want to.

I do believe that wrestlers need time off but due to the fact of live TV and pre recorded tv tapings and house shows. if you miss two weeks of taping no one will care about you. Maybe not main eventers but mid carders will be easy to replace.

Like Lance

You can whip a broken horse doesn’t mean you should!

That’s why most talent use drugs to deal with the pain so they can entertain you. Is it right NO, did management ”tell you to do it” NO. But if you can’t perform they will push someone else who can perform.

That is where WWE/F is at fault. Lance didn’t have to do the things he did but if you have to work you do what is best for you. So many stories come out about what wrestlers did or would do just to keep performing.

(sidenote) one of my old friends was scouted out by WWE/F and they told him he wasn’t big enough. the guy was 220 and 6’4

Not big enough? come on!

As for people blaming Lance’s father, stating you are a horrible dad and stop being mad at WWE. That is the single most stupidest statement ever! He is a grieving father who just wants his kid to be remembered

It’s so hard to tell someone they have a problem, who is to say that they didn’t try. Maybe Lance couldn’t deal with it, they can teach you to take a bump but no one teaches you how to live 300 days a year on the road away from your families and never truly getting enough rest.

If you over sleep and miss your flight you will get suspended, if you are in pain and can work, you will not be seen on TV or worse they may take a PPV pay check out of ya.

all I wanted to say is maybe WWE and Lance’s family could have done more, maybe. then again he was a 29 year old man who was in the Biz for a while and should have learned from others.

as for Linda’s statement that Oh I think I met him once.

what she should have said was

” I might not have talked with Lance, I do have so many talented people on staff but I am sadden for the lost of anyone’s life and we lost a bright young man”

that’s all it’s classy and dodges the questions all at the same time !

anyway this is my two cent

Silent Bob in the Breakfast Club

Silent Bob in the Breakfast Club

this was posted on www.popculturenetwork.com forums June 1 2010

Many of you here on the PCN forums know me as Rob Base, but what a lot of you may not know is that I have been active in the indie film scene now for the better part of ten years. I am currently working on my second feature film.  What does that have to do with Silent Bob?

Maybe almost nothing, but Kevin Smith has been a huge influence on me as a writer/director.

Watching someone like Kevin make a film about losers and stoners at a convenience store makes me realize that there is an audience looking for more than gun shots and cheap humor.

All this time Kevin talks about how much John Hughes affected him as a filmmaker. I never saw it before until I re-watched the Breakfast Club with my wife this past Memorial Day.

I see all the archetype standards usually seen in a Hughes film. None more so than Allison (Ally Sheedy) as the basket case. The non-verbal-hiding-her-body outcast who follows the others just because she has nothing better to do on her Saturday.

But how is this like Silent Bob? Simple, the first time I notice the similarities was in the running around trying to get to Judd Nelson’s locker before the principal sees them. All of them doing this Scooby Doo inspired dash around the halls. If you have ever seen Jay and Silent Bob Strikes Back, it’s in there as well as in Mallrats.

There is one scene in particular where they are running back and forth and Allison is just leaning against the lockers. If you put a hat on her it’s Silent Bob all the way

.

As for the wisdom that Silent Bob inflicts every once in a while …i.e. Clerks and Chasing Amy, one has to simply look to the scene where the Club wants Claire (Molly Ringwald) to open up and she won’t or can’t. Then Allison tells her tales of sex and what can only be called abuse by a therapist until Claire confesses.

Granted, the basket case then tells everyone that she was a compulsive liar. But who’s to say Bob isn’t lying. His hetero life mate, Jay, never once seen anything that Bob claims to have done.

But looking back on a simple film like the Breakfast Club and what it represents as a movie and a culture, it is nothing short of amazing and if it’s good enough to inspire Kevin Smith, it’s good enough to be seen by anyone at any time.

How MOMA could really be modern – Part 1-GRAFFITI

THIS IS PART 1 OF A 3 PART STORY OF THE ART SOCIETY

PART 1 GRAFFITI (the urban palate)

The Moma located on 53st between 6th and 5th avenue in Manhattan New York has been the home of “modern” art and pop art icons for the last 79 years.They opened their doors on November 7, 1929 and have since been the place for artist of the “underground” movement. artist like Van Gogh, Gauguin, Cezanne, and Seurat. Campbell Soup Cans by Andy Warhol nicely round out the hallowed halls.

but one persons art is another mans anger. cause many a great artist of the true modern age have been omitted from the halls of this so-called great museum. the true urban artist. Graffiti is one of the last modern art forms it draws acclaim and criticism alike it is respect over seas and spit upon domestically. graffiti defines generations and it defines neighborhoods alike.

Its place as art is shown in the form of old school block Letters and solid color fillings. it draws from music and comic books. each artist risk life and freedom to do it, making it the only art form that could take your life. So why does the MoMa not have expos on Graffiti?

simple…..(this next section is complete rant reader beware)

these so called experts in the field of art can not see past their own blurred vision of the world, art done in the abstract is considered high end and art created in protest and outspokenness has no place in the halls of the mighty MOMA. The walls adorn with paintings of cans of soup and canvases with a cut in the center hold more meaning to an empty vessel that is the upper elite then real art …art done for the sake of art.

Walking down the hallways of the MOMA you can see all of the waste of money the Art Elite has given out. all these artist claim stake in the fact that their art has meaning, go ask REVS and Cost,Riot 208 or JA or any of the others what their art meant and they would tell you.

It means LIFE and DEATH it means FAMILY and Friends, gangs and brotherhood. it means being on the outside looking in. the art of the street is art for the so called lower class the middle class and the people who live pay check to paycheck. the lines in a piece define a person, the more bubble the letter, the bigger the outline, the crazier the art, the more colors it all means something …none of which is a free ride to fame. that road is bumpy and long and sometimes it means the end!

Modern Art is Graffiti. it defines a neighborhood a town a city an understanding while the rest of the world and more mainstream media except it the more MOMA and the Blue blood fakes push it away.

when the day MOMA allows the walls to be deck out in krylon and Montana spray paint. that will be the day when Grafitti as an art form dies. the world has reconized the art form and we do not need the critics to tell us what is allowed we live in an era when we make our own choices and we choice to enjoy true modern art whereever it is

BETTY PAGE passes away at age 85

If you know anything about anything you will know who Betty Page was and is! she is the reason for almost the whole entire cheese cake model revival. without Betty gracing the covers of magazines comic book artist and painters would have no basis for the perfect female form. At about 10:57pm I get a call from my close friend and website researcher who broke the news to us about her passing. What do you say? what can you say?

Nothing………………………………………………………..

for people out of the loop about Betty Page here is a quick break down of the One and Only

Bettie Page was born Betty Mae Page on April 22, 1923 the second child of Walter Roy Page and Edna Mae Pirtle. As the salutatorian of her class,on June 6, 1940, Bettie Page graduated from high school with a scholarship and enrolled at George Peabody College with the intention of becoming a teacher. However, the next fall she began studying acting, hoping to become a movie star. At the same time, she began her first job, typing for author Alfred Leland Crab. Page graduated from Peabody with a Bachelor of Arts degree in 1944. In 1943, she married high school classmate Billy Neal in a simple courthouse ceremony shortly before he was drafted into the Navy for service in World War I1. For the next few years, Bettie moved from San Francisco to Nashville to Miami and to Port-au-Prince, Haiti, where she felt a special affinity with the country and its culture.In November 1947, while back in the United States, Bettie filed for divorce from Neal.

Following her divorce, Page worked briefly in San Francisco, and in Haiti. She moved to New York City, where she hoped to find work as an actress. In the meantime, she supported herself by working as a secretary. In 1950, while walking along the Coney Island shore, Bettie met Jerry Tibbs, a police officer with an interest in photography. Bettie was a willing model, and Tibbs took pictures of her and put together her first pinup portfolio.

soon she became famous in the 1950s for her fetish modeling and pin-up photos. She was also one of the earliest Playmates of the Month for Playboy magazine.she faded into obscurity in the 1960s after converting to Christianity and serving as a Baptist missionary in Angola

she experienced a resurgence of popularity in the 1980s and now has a significant cult following. Her look, including her jet black hair and trademark bangs, has influenced many artists. some of the more known names are Jim Silke, Dave Stevens,Greg Theakston and comic book publisher Eros comics.
