The Walking Dead video game?

It looks like the TV series The Walking Dead may have a video game created after it.

According to an invitation we received Wednesday, Sam & Max and Back to the Future episodic game developer Telltale will be announcing five new multi-platform projects during a formal event in San Francisco on Thursday, February 17. Among them, says the invitation, is "one based on a just-launched property from the TV and comic book world whose popularity is changing life as some know it."

The Walking Dead television show, based on the Image Comics series, launched on AMC last October, fitting the vague description admirably. Admittedly we have no actual evidence to support this theory, though the series -- which often focuses on human interactions over zombie killing -- fits Telltale's style of games rather well.

It would be really interesting if there was a game based on the TV series as it would probably focus more on the human interaction than the zombie killing as most zombie survival games are about.

If you're looking to buy The Walking Dead season 1, has it, check it out.

Researchers want to bring back the mammoth

After reading the Researchers aim to resurrect mammoth in five years article on Yahoo, all I can say is "why? why? why?" I don't see how any good can come from this. It's just humans again trying to play God. If it is a success and they're able to somehow bring back the mammoth species, what's next with them? Can they even survive with the temperatures on Earth now?

Adding a Tweet button on your site

You've probably seen those Twitter "Tweet" buttons on web sites everywhere now on the web. Do you want to add one to your web site? Well it's pretty easy to add to your site, here's what you do:
  • Go to the Twitter Tweet button page
  • Choose the button you want to display on your site
  • You can also change the "Tweet text", "URL", and "Language" but I think most will keep the defaults selected for those extra options
  • You can then recommend people to follow someone on Twitter, so if you have a Twitter account you should put your Twitter account name in that field
  • It will show you a preview, if you like what you see, copy the code it gives you and paste it into your site's code and that's it!

Warming up your car in the winter

I found this article, Eight Facts About Warming Up Your Car in Winter, on Yahoo today and I always thought warming up the car in the winter was a good thing, even though I really didn't do it that much because usually I didn't have time to waste, but it is actually a bad thing to do. The article says that ten seconds is all you need to wait and then you can drive your car. Make sure to check out the article. There are some good tips in it.

APB Reloaded beta coming in February

The free-to-play shooter APB Reloaded game, that I mentioned in a previous post, will be released in a beta period at the end of February. Next week gamers can sign up for the beta. This info was found on Gamespot. I think I'm going to try this since it'll be free and see how it goes. Hopefully it doesn't take up too much hard disk space.

New movie trailer: Super 8

Another good looking movie coming out in 2011 is Super 8. From watching the trailer, we can assume that something is being carried from Area 51 in one of the train cars. Someone drives onto the tracks and directly at the oncoming train. Either they're committing suicide or trying to stop the train from reaching its destination. Whatever is in the train car, it's big and strong as it smashes the train car's door open to get out. We don't get any visuals of the "monster" so we'll have to wait and see. This movie is being produced by Steven Spielberg and J.J. Abrams. It was written and directed by J.J. Abrams.

New movie trailer: Battle Los Angeles

A new movie coming out this year is Battle Los Angeles and from the trailer it looks ineresting and worth seeing. The movie is an alien invasion type of movie and the aliens, from the limited shots in the trailers, appear to be somewhat robotic. The movie comes to theaters on March 11th.
