Batman Noel Lee Bermejo

Batman Noel is an 112 page hardcover graphic novel written and illustrated by
Lee Bermejo and published by DC Comics on November 8, 2011.

Inspired by Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol, the Dark Knight must come to terms with his rogue's gallery of the past, present, and future, while exploring what it means to a hero.

While most assuredly a stretch for both Dickens and Batman fans, with a review score of 8.5 on IGN review, and described as "an instant classic," on Ain't it, by all accounts the premise works.

Skyrim Vampire Cure

Disease to some, to others a way of life, in the never ending story that is Skyrim.

People keep saying I look sick!
Thankfully Bethesda inform you when you've contracted Sanguinare Vampiris, however if you've missed it then off to the "Magic" menu with you (press b, then left on your controller), once there select the last option "Active Effects" and see what ails you. You may not have contracted vampirism just yet.

Oh no!! I'm a vampire!!!
Don't panic, you've got 72 hours (game time) to find a cure before you reach Stage 1

Stage!! whadda mean stage?
There are four stage of vampirism, each bringing with it a gradual change in your demeanour. 
Gradual aversion to sunlight, health, magicka and stamina are reduced and do not recover,
A gradual weakness to fire,
A increasing benefit from "feeding" on npcs
Increased ability to reanimate dead bodies to fight for you.

But I digress, full details on the stages and the benefits of being a vampire from the definitive Skyrim Wiki. 

So a cure already!!
Within the first 72 hours, you can get rid of the disease with any common disease-curing potion, or by visiting an altar in a  church or altar in front of a Statue of the Eight (ie. Talos in Whiterun).

Once you’re a Stage 1 vampire, normal disease cures won't work

Stage 1, Too late!, my mother's going to kill me!
Speak with any Inn Keeper or Bartender about rumors. You'll discover that a man called Falion in Morthal (east of Fort Snowhawk) is studying vampires!!

If you haven't got one, Falion will sell you a Black Soul gem, and a soul trap book (read to activate).

Before being cured, you’ll need to fill the Black Soul Gem

Fill a Black Soul Gem!? how the ...?
Cast a Soul Trap spell on a bandit, or npc, then ..erm...kill them!!

A soultrap Spell?..... don't got one!
How to use and where to get a Soul trap spell from the aforementioned wiki

I got it!!! :) back to Falion?
Yup, speak to Falion to complete the ritual and voila, cured!!!.

Talk to Falion? When he's attacking me?
If your at stage 3 or stage 4 there's a good chance Falion will attack you!! bug fix on the way I hope.  One work around from the forums is to feed on someone before you go.. if you feed, you'll drop back to Stage 1

To hell with this nothing works!
...and for some of you this is unfortunately true, there is an instant cure but that means turning into a werewolf...and that's a whole other story.

Saints Row The Third Review Summary

On release with an 18 certificate, in US and Australia, set for Eu release on 18th November 2011, for xbox 360, Ps3, and Windows.

You control the leader of the Third Street Saints in the city of Steelport, with the story focusing on the gang war with The Syndicate, a rival criminal group.  The game blends third-person action and driving sequences through an open-ended storyline, with freedom to complete missions as you see fit. However your decisions will ultimately affect the game's ending.

The games open world action, drew praise from critics, however many felt the story missions themselves do not allow for much creativity.  The games self aware humour however had the critics divided, some describing it as borderline offensive, others praising it's creativity. 

One odd and I hope, tongue in cheek, theme running throughout the reviews, embraces the notion that onscreen mindless violence is what video games are for. 

This hasn't detracted from a rather extraordinary current score of 87% xbox 360 and 81% Ps3 on

Quote of the bunch:
"When you just want to indulge in some mindless violence and sexual depravity, this will more than suffice"

Reviews Summary
Ludicrous and lewd, but it's also a joy to play
Some amazing moments... and some truly abysmal ones
A lack of technical polish and weak combat overshadow its achievements
The ultimate sandbox, fans of the series will have a blast
A fun romp that doesn't take itself too seriously, defines what it means to have fun playing games
Shining novelties fueled by base guffaws quickly devolve into gimmicks
It's juvenile, occasionally objectionable
More intense, more chaotic, more bizarre
Missions vary wildly, and they're almost all bombastic, popcorn-movie affairs

Online Game Magazines November 2011

Okay I admit it, I'm a late comer to the world of online gaming magazines, ebooks, and pdfs, until now, I always felt more secure with the feel of paper on flesh than mouse pointer on screen. 

But I've been won over!!

First change of heart came from an essential free pdf and ebook listing on Gnomeslair, maintained by an quite industrious and often kindly Gnome. And more recently by the equally industrious and knowledgeable "Nreive" Editor and Designer and his much praised and most impressive "Retroaction"

Retroaction: is a quarterly interactive PDF magazine featuring old and new games on retro platforms such as the Amstrad, Sinclair, Commodore, DOS, Arcade, Atari, Sega, Nintendo, NEC, MSX, Acorn, Apple, and more.

Featuring reviews and previews of new games on retro platforms, articles on classic retro games, interviews and articles with people in the retrogaming scene.

The magazine is fully interactive with website and email links and takes advantage of PDF functions such as bookmarks, anchors and indexing, all at the click of a mouse button.

So to recap:

Space Battleship Yamato Movie DVD

A film adaptation of the 1974 anime TV series Space Battleship Yamato. The year is 2199 and after five years of attack by an alien race known as Gamilas, Earth lies ravaged by radiation bombs. The remnants of humanity have fled underground with only 73 days until the radiation will drive humanity to extinction.

But the Earth Defense Force plan a counter-offensive and the crew of the space battleship Yamato are sent out on a journey to the planet Iscandar to acquire a device that can heal their ravaged planet.

Directed by Takashi Yamazaki, the film release of Space Battleship Yamato debuted at number 1 on the Japanese box-office, knocking a certain Harry Potter off his throne.  Reviews have been mixed, the Hollywood Reporter stated that the movie had a "sleek futurist look without losing sight of the ‘70s illustration style" of the original anime series.  Christoph Mark of The Daily Yomiuri said the film "lacked gravity" and criticized the production design as too reminiscent of the Battlestar Galactica remake.  There's always one!

Alf the Helper: Well actually mr.elderly there is more than one! 1,744 users on gave the film a score of  61%
Elderly: Alf we are going to have to change your name
Alf the Helper: But I quite like the name Alf :(
Elderly: I wasn't thinking of changing that bit

Uncharted 3 Drake's Deception Wallpaper

Right click, open link in new window/tab for size 1024x768

Apparently Game studios don't do wallpaper much anymore.  Accepted it isn't the greatest promotional method, but as a thank you to gamers it does have merits.  In the absence of any wallpaper for Naughty Dog's most excellent adventure, it falls to half blind photofiltre owners like myself and my team to fill the void.  So until software studios lean on their art team for twitter backgrounds, forum avatars, icons and wallpaper, take it away there Alf......

Goldeneye 007 Reloaded Game Review Summary

A remastering of the 2010 Wii game, for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.

Developed from scratch, featuring high-definition graphics, an achievement system, new "Mi6 Ops Missions", PlayStation Move compatibility, online play for up to 16 players (limited to one player per console), 14 multiplayer maps with nine different game modes for online multiplayer.

(deep breath)

"GoldenEye 007: Reloaded - Double 'O' Edition." is an exclusive PlayStation 3 bundle including the game on Blu-Ray Disc, the PlayStation Move motion and navigation controllers, PlayStation Eye Camera, the Sharp Shooter peripheral, and access to the downloadable character Hugo Drax.

Currently scoring 79% xbox 360 and 76% on Metacritic

Pick of the bunch
"Still Not The GoldenEye remake fans were hoping for, I would've been happier playing a $10 downloadable HD remake of the original game"
Game Informer

Reviews Summary
I suspect this will be one of the first titles to take a price drop
Clever additions and some much-needed refinements let's it stands with the big boys
A worthy successor,  gameplay delivers, both in single and multiplayer
Activision has made some incredibly intelligent decisions in their revision strategy
In the end, nostalgia just isn't a strong enough foundation to build a truly great game on.
Solo, you will be hard-pressed to get your money's worth out of the campaign and MI6 alone
Addictive multiplayer will keep you coming back for more
Invisible walls and less-than-stellar AI make the whole package suffer
Pleasantly surprised by GoldenEye: Reloaded,  it still has its English charms

Red Ball Online Flash Game

There are evenings  when the repetitive bludgeoning of zombies, the frustration of the narrow Monaco circuit, the visual onslaught of a post apocalyptic sandbox are enough to make you bypass your console and take some time to listen to your mp3 collection and fiddle with the A,D and W keys on your pc keyboard.

If this is you then. "Red Ball" from Russian flash developer Evgeniy Fedoseev., is a fine example of an online flash game and palative care for console overload. 

Help the lovable little red ball navigate his/her way through an obstacle course spread over 17 levels.  Not your stroll in the park however, but 17 levels incorporating steep slopes, lifts,  thorns, axes, a Ninja on a bridge, catapults and a meeting with Pacman. Also available for your iphone, see link on site.

Emobile e5 30 day Top up Problems

Hi Alf the helper here, standing in for mr.elderly.  No doubt you wouldn't be here unless you've already gone through the emobile forums, pdf's, haven't found an answer and are topping up too late in the evening to ring the emobile support line on 1890 690 000

By far the most common problem faced by the new mobile broadband user is just how in hell do you top up or why after topping up, you can't use the 30 day top up offer, most likely resulting in the following text message

Sorry you cannot sign up to the offer as you do not have enough credit on your account. To top up call 1743 with your credit or laser card details.

Now like me you've noticed the e5 dosen't have a keypad to call 1743, so whadda you do?

The secret like most secrets is simple.

Top up and apply for the 30 day pass 
BEFORE you "Connect" to the internet

I'll explain, imagine the e5 is your mobile phone, and like a mobile phone once switched on and getting a signal can send and receive service messages and requests.  Send you say! yes I do and yes you guessed it, send by using  the e5 mobile hub "homepage" on your computer.

So let's start, ensure your e5 is switched on and "NOT CONNECTED" to the Net, evidenced by the missing icon on the e5 window
Next open the e5 "homepage" in your browser by clicking your desktop icon, ensure the "Connection" tab confirms you are "disconnected" if not click the "Disconnect" button.
 Good! the rest should be plain sailing, assuming you've got a mobile signal (the icon in the very left of the e5 window) Click on the "Top up" tab and enter your prepay 12 digit code
Once you've "Topped Up" head to the "Text" tab and await confirmation of you new balance.  No point in doing anything until you get that confirmation.  On rare occassions, checking your balance under the "balance" tab can help, though not always.  You'll know you've successfully topped up when you see the following
  But we're not done!!! head to the "Offers" tab and type in 30 day to opt for the current prepay offer.  Click OK........

Back to the "Text" tab and await a text confirmation similar to the following.....

30 day pass confirmed, please disconnect and reconnect your session to access eMobile Broadband until 11-11-11.

Then simply "log out" of the "Homepage",  log back on and under the connection tab click "Connect" if your ready to surf the web and we're good to go.  Shimple :)

The down side:
If you've entered the prepay code, whilst "connected" to the Net, emobile will automatically deduct a one day pass, thereby cancelling any chance you had of using the 30 day offer.  Solution? ring emobile support (1890 690 000) the next morning, explain what happened and if this is your first time, with a bit of luck, they may activate your 30 day pass, though legally they don't have to.

If you have any questions, leave a comment at the bottom of this extraordinarily long post and I'll do my best to help if I can

Horror update and the lost leprechaun

Well we've lost the leprechaun!!

And despite my efforts to turn this blog into a game site, the jolly dead midget has bested me at every turn.

Noticing that the most visited page on this excuse for a site is the "Horror Wallpaper" post conceived by and published against my wishes by the little snot...

Well I thought.. I thought it fitting to commemorate his final departure, and as a nod to the approaching halloween festivities, I've ....well I've updated the post with the wallpaper above.

The true horror of the departed genius can be found on the following link

Sucker Punch

Warren Louw fanart see post

Right click, open link in new window/tab for wallpaper 1024x768

Receiving a significantly negative reception from critics, Sucker Punch is a 2011 action-fantasy thriller starring Emily Browning and directed by Zack Snyder (Watchmen, 300). The plot centers around the fantasies of a young woman who is committed to a mental institution and her search for five items that will set her free .

Whilst the title is never explained in the film, Mr. Snyder has stated one interpretation of the film is that it is a critique on geek culture's sexism and objectification of women.  So we'll just ignore character names, babydoll, Sweet Pea, the tiny little skirts and the gratuitous fight scenes.  Gottit.

Top image: artist Warren Louw, more on Rendered Beauty

Alf the helper: But why did you post it then?
Elderly: for exactly the reasons I've just described
Alf the helper: As a protest on geek culture's protrayal of women?
Elderly: Alf we need to talk....
Alf the helper: Oh look mr.elderly someone has gone and dumped those Amazon links at the end of your post again, what is the world coming to, such blatant advertising everywhere you turn.. tut tut!
