Uwe Boll interview @ Eurogamer + Postal Movie infoz

There’s an interview with Uwe Boll over at Eurogamer. I can honestly
say I agree with some of the things he says, like how people should SEE
his movies before JUDGING them, but that doesn’t change the fact that
he makes complete crap 90% of the time. He talks about his movies
before before House of the Dead
, how “video game movies are
hard to sell to production companies”, and probably most interesting:
about his upcoming POSTAL movie…

“”I’m in the movie – Uwe Boll will play a minor part. I get killed by my
‘Boll haters’,” he explains. So will he be getting real, er, Boll
haters to play themselves?”

Can you say selling point?
All in all it’s an interesting read, to say the least. Sue me, but I from what I read this Postal movie even sounds somewhat worth watching. Granted, it’s still gonna be an Uwe Boll movie, and it’ll still likely be LAUGHABLY BAD, it DOES have a few things going for it:

A) Gary Coleman
B) Uwe Boll Dying
C) Osama Bin Laden

I’m willing to see it based on those 3 things alone. Granted,
I’m not gonna pay for it, but to be fair I haven’t payed for a movie in
over 2 years because I have friends at movie theaters. Oh well, that’s
just my take on the whole thing.

PS: Thanks for Ace-Of-War, and his thread on OCR, for pointing this one out.

Opera coming to Nintendo DS!

From Slashdot:


Opera has announced that they and Nintendo are going in together to create a web browser for the DS. The browser, based on Opera’s core engine, will take advantage of the system’s two screens and the touchscreen to provide on-the-go portable internet access. From the article: “Within just five seconds of turning on the system, the Nintendo DS is already fully operational. This makes it the ideal device to enable people to swiftly obtain the latest information from the internet, wherever they are.”

FFVII Cast and Release Date Announced

Holy mackerel ! Finally what alot of us have been waiting for..

From 1up.com:

Hot on the heels of the Kingdom Hearts II voice cast, which was announced just last week, comes the first peek at the English-language voice cast of Final Fantasy VII Advent Children, which has been delayed repeatedly due to some last minute signings, most notably that of American Beauty jailbait, Mena Suvari, who was brought on to perform the voice of Aerith Gainsborough in not only Kingdom Hearts II, but also to reprise the role in Advent Children.

While Sony’s DVD head of marketing, Mike Stratford, was quoted talking all kinds of crap to The Digital Bits, claiming that we’d see the release of Advent Children in North America by “end of 2006” (causing much consternation among Final Fantasy fans nationwide), 1UP is glad to inform you that the DVD and UMD will ship in the U.S. on April 25, 2006. So in case you haven’t already downloaded the movie from the Internet (bad, pirates, bad!) and are looking forward to seeing this hour-and-a-half slice of CG Final Fantasy fan-service for yourself, you’ve roughly two months to go. Here’s the mostly anonymous voice cast, with the exception of Rachel Leigh Cook (Tifa), and Mena Suvari (Aerith), with Steve Burton playing the role of Cloud Strife (he was the voice of Cloud in Kingdom Hearts 1). But who cares about that when it can finally be revealed that “Girl” will be played by Andrea Bowen?

Final Fantasy VII Advent Children voice cast:
Cloud Strife: Steve Burton
Tifa Lockhart: Rachael Leigh Cook
Kadaj: Steve Staley
Rufus Shinra: Wally Wingert
Reno: Quinton Flynn
Rude: Crispin Freeman
Yazoo: Dave Wittenberg
Loz: Fred Tatasciore
Vincent Valentine: Steve Blum
Barett Wallace: Beau Billingslea
Cid Highwind: Chris Edgerly
Yuffie Kisaragi: Christy Romano
Cait Sith: Gregg Ellis
Red XIII: Liam O’Brien
Reeve: Jamieson Price
Tseng: Ryun Yu
Elena: Bettina Bush
Marlene: Wallace Grace Rolek
Denzel: Benjamin Bryan
Girl: Andrea Bowen
Zack: Rick Gomez
Aerith Gainsborough: Mena Suvari
Sephiroth: George Newbern

Other features unique to the U.S. release of the DVD are: * Story digest * Deleted scenes * Featurette: “Making Of Final Fantasy VII” * Footage of Final Fantasy VII at the Venice Film Festival * A sneak peek of the games in the upcoming “Compliation of Final Fantasy VII” series (i.e. Dirge of Cerberus)

TOMC 10: Take to the Skies

The tenth installment of the Thematic Original Music Competition, where entrants compose an original track, is underway. The winner of TOMC 9, Flik, chose an airship theme:

This would be a theme for the skies. Many games have you leaving the ground on a dragon, an airship, or something of the like. Feel the breeze upon your face as you take to the skies on a quest to the Castle in the Clouds.

I didn’t want to get too descriptive as to make you feel obligated to follow a certain route. Best of luck to all, and I look forward to hearing your interpretations of this theme.”

The competiton runs through Midnight (EST) on Saturday, February 21st.

MAGFest Summer Event Planned

From MAGFest.org:

So, we’ve done a lot of talking, and while we haven’t finalized anything yet, we know one thing:

People don’t want to wait a year to rock out again.

So, this summer, we’re looking into holding an outdoor event with many of the same bands you heard at MAGFest, and probably more bands that you didn’t hear at MAGFest!
Entry would be cheap; we don’t want it to interfere with your summer convention plans, if you have any.

What we’re asking now is that anyone that wants to get involved — whether it be planning, playing, or attending — get in touch with us. And of course, feel free to talk about it on the forums.

Check it out folks because the Web site is up and tickets are on sale! Things are going well for the concert. We’re looking at getting sponsorship by our local EB Games and GameStop, along with some donations from our local gaming stores. My new friend Rick will be bringing at least six arcade games with him in addition to the Street Fighter II Arcade Game that we’ll be giving away in the tournament, so we’ll have some great arcade games on free play at the event. The University of Arkansas gaming clubs are getting ready to run the tournaments, and we’re also getting ready to set up radio promotions which will play on our local radio stations. Once the radio commercials start, the tickets will get eaten up pretty quick, so if you’re coming from out of town, make sure you buy your ticket sooner than later.

Dale North and Mustin have finally finished their More Than Mario album and you can get a copy by making a donation through the More Than Mario Web page. Just head to the site to check out the album demo and find out all of the details!

Cha-cha-cha-changessss.

As Suzu has already mentioned, we’ve been working pretty hard on moving ThaSauce to a new dedicated server, which will (hopefully) be a lot better for everyone, even IF it’s being a real pain to get up and running. Everything should be worth it in the end =P. Other than the server thing, we’ve also made a few (obvious) changes…
I’ve always known ThaSauce was a tad bit difficult to navigate. Last night a certain friend of mine drilled me about it for a solid hour or so before I actually got up and said “I know exactly what to do.”

First thing you’ll notice is, we removed a ton of extra crap from the Navigation Block. In fact, we rebuilt the entire thing. Everything is now in easy to understand categories, so that we can help avoid confusion. People can easily find the news and calendar submissions, as well as not have to search an alphabetically ordered list for under-appreciated things like the Forums, Tracker, and Wiki (the last two of which are now direct links instead of redirects).

Another complaint I got was that a lot of people didn’t even KNOW we had themes. It’s true, we seriously do. So we’ve moved the “registered user” specific links to their OWN block (only visible when logged in) that includes a link to your Account Home, your Private Messages, and has a drop down menu that allows you to change you theme on ANY PAGE (any page on the main site, anyway). You’ll notice, however, that it still have a few kinks to work out, but it’s all minor stuff. Soon we’ll also be looking into weeding out any bad themes, and fine tuning the GOOD ones. We’d like your feedback on these, as well, so make sure to drop by the forums and leave a note or two – which themes you like, which ones are seriously broken, and so on.

Lastly you’ll notice that…well just about every block we HAD has been moved. This was done to make navigating ThaSauce easier and MAYBE EVEN drop the page load time a bit. You also may notice that the RSSs feeds are gone, this is because we’re making an attempt to better organize them all to save time and space but someone’s feeds are broken, thusly slowing down the entire process.

Anyway, I think that’s it for now. Just some of many steps ThaSauce is making to become less sucky and more awesome. And be sure to give us all kinds of feedback…’cause ya’know…we need it 🙁
