Been awake most of the night working on graphics for sushi_graphics
. However, this isn't because I needed to get these done tonight, its because I couldn't get to sleep. I tried, and right before I was about to nod off my Scottyboo accidentally woke me. Cruel, cruel world... T.T
In other news, lots of interesting things going on! Valve recently released new information on the new special infected. The "Spitter" will hurl spit bombs into groups of survivors, causing them to separate and ultimately become vulnerable & alone. Definitely sounds exciting, too bad we have to wait till November to play.
The guys over at fortaxreasons
releashed the conclusion to their RDCCDX: Digital Pirates of Dark Water Saga at Otakon this last weekend. Needless to say it was awesome. Head over to their youtube profile
to check out their latest video, and the previous ones if you haven't already.
In sadder news, your iPhones will be made with more despair than usual. A chinese worker who was suspected of stealing a fourth generation prototype iPhone committed suicide."He worked for Foxconn in the southern city of Shenzhen and was responsible for shipping 16 iPhone prototypes to Apple. One went missing. Sun reported the loss, and the company launched an investigation.
Three days later the worker jumped to his death.
Sun's former classmates have told Chinese newspapers that during that investigation he was beaten, his house was searched and he was locked up in a room alone. They say he described the experience in an online chat with them as one of the most humiliating experiences of his life." BBC News
Seriously, how messed up is that? I wonder how bad of a lawsuit Apple will get stuck with when the missing iPhone shows up. Of course I know nothing of the labor laws in that region so they could get off no worse for the wear. I do know one thing though, the Macstapo is serious business. :/
Also announced today was the new World of Warcraft movie. Sam Raimi(Evil Dead, Spiderman, Drag Me To Hell) is set to direct it and Charles Roven(producer of The Dark Knight
) is going to produce it. The movie will be made by Warner Bros & Legendary Pictures, so hopefully it wont be a low budget film. I pray this will be a decent video game movie. I would hate to see Hollywood ruin another franchise that I love. You can read the press release
for more of the gritty details, and with Blizzcon & ComicCon around the corner I'm sure we'll be hearing more about this project.
As a reward for reading this super long entry I have a surprise for you!( Oooooooh wut could it be?!??!?!1 )
Think that's all the news for tonight. Don't worry though, I'll be back tomorrow to ramble some more. Stay classy Dreamwidth!
