Killzone’s Anniversary Art Book Looks Stunning

Art books are my Achilles heel. Regardless which game or series they're from, I'll love each and every one. I love the art which goes into video games, even those I haven't a clue about. However, when I am familiar with the franchise, that's even better. The latest art book to catch my eye is the one being released by Sony for the 15th anniversary of Killzone.

Professor Snape was an All-right Geezer

Let's face it, we've all had a teacher like Snape: mean and nasty, but all very well intentioned. Yes, that's right. That grumpy potions teacher, in my opinion, was an all-right geezer, he just enjoyed being grumpy. We all enjoy doing that, yes all of us.

Titan Books Announces the Release of Art of Fable Legends

Though the debate continues as to whether video games can be considered art, there's no doubt that some games are just artistically fantastic and warrant their own art books and in some cases, that happens, like with Titan Books' latest announcement for the Art of Fable Legends.

Stephen King’s “The Dark Tower” Is Coming To Theaters.

Okay, now that we've gotten that out of the way... You probably only know about The Dark Tower if you're that kind of nerd. You know, a book nerd. I say that because yes, it is Stephen King, but not his normal bloody-scare-the-pants-off-of-you horror fare. I know about it because I am that kind of nerd, you see. Although I am a bit ashamed to say that I have only read the first book in the series.

Steven Spielberg to Direct Ready Player One

Though I'm slowly managing to read the book for the first time, I'm already pretty invested in the film adaptation of Ready Player One, a novel by Ernest Cline which tells the story of an insane virtual reality video game which lets people escape from the almost apocalyptic world they're living in.

Chuck Palahniuk’s Lullaby is Being Made into a Movie

Chuck Palahniuk is one of my favourite authors, Survivor is a particular favourite of mine, and while Fight Club was a much better film adaptation than Choke (at least in my opinion), I'm still pretty excited to hear that Lullaby, a book about a mysterious chant that's been killing off infants, and adults, is being made into a movie with Palahniuk himself getting elbows deep in the movie's production. Quite rightly too considering the origins of the book.
