Do you ever get that feeling that the zombie apocalypse is right around the corner? Well if so, here is your ticket to lasting out more than your neighbors. Map of the Dead helps you chart out your escape route or find items to help fortify your bunker. This web app highlights key locations to assist you in surviving should the living dead coming knocking at your doorstep such as gun store, gas stations, and grocery stores in your immediate area.
If we have learned anything from the plethora of zombie films and games (and let me tell you, there are a ton) it’s that you need to get access to supplies fast and unless you already have these materials with you Map of the Dead makes it quick and easy to gain the supplies you are lacking. Be sure to hover over the map key for some clever and useful information about the places you might visit. This will be accompanied by the game “Mutiplayer Zombies” of which I don’t have much information on yet, more on that later once it is released! Special thanks to my friend Garrick E. for the pro-tip.

Here is Galileo for the iPhone. This is an already funded Kickstarter project that I think most would be interested in, whether you are an amateur photographer, professional photographer, videographer, or just a person who likes cool shit.
So what is Galileo? Basically it is an iPhone dock/charging unit that can be remotely rotated to any angle via another iOS device (i.e. an iPad or another iPhone). What is so great about this product is its multiple uses from recording video, time-lapse photography, video conferencing, baby monitoring and more! It also features a standard tri-pod mount for easy incorporation with the things you already own. If you are interested now is the time to buy. Before the project funding date ends (10 days from now) you can pick it up for $85, or if you wait till general sale it will be $130. You can gets yours by visiting their Kickstarter page and backing their project to at least $85. Check out the video to see more!
Do you plan on backing this project? Have a use for it? Let us know in the comments!
Finally I have had a chance to see the new highly anticipated film of the year, The Hunger Games. With Harry Potter over, this new 4-part films series based on the wildly popular young adult novel’s will most likely be the next big movie going experience. I came into this film honestly not knowing much about it at all, having not read the books and only seen the trailers for the film, so this is most definitely a non-biased review. It is directed by Gary Ross who you may know from Seabiscuit and Pleaseantville as well as writing credits for many more.
The basic story takes place in a dystopian future where the country (previous North America) is broken into 12 districts of which are ruled over by one Capitol. The elite who live in the Capitol use the events known as “The Hunger Games” to suppress the districts for revolting in years past. Essentially The Hunger Games is a death match in which each district offers up one boy and one girl to participate and kill one another until only one remains. A bit of a depressing future if you ask me, although the film was so much more than that.
This week has been jam-packed with great videos popping up, and in case you missed them we have you covered along with even more videos on our Facebook page. This week we saw a pretty awesome shaving commercial, a trailer for the new Assassin’s Creed, a pretty sweet TMNT Stop Motion video as well as a new entry in The Daly Show!

This week has been an interesting one for those involved in Final Fantasy XIII-2. I will try my best to avoid any spoilers in this article but beware none-the-less. The big issue here lies in the fact that the follow up title to Final Fantasy XIII has an ending that is leaving some confused, as well as Square Enix is releasing story based DLC soon. I am aiming in this article to calm those down who are up in arms and hopefully encourage some people to try out FFXIII-2 as it is a really strong installment in the Final Fantasy franchise.
First off let me acknowledge the complaints of some individuals. The main argument is that *spoiler* the ending to the game has a “To be continued” included. That combined with the fact that story based DLC will be released soon gives off the vibe that Square Enix released an unfinished game and are making people PAY to get the true ending. I get that. If this paragraph was all the knowledge you have for this situation it makes sense to hop onto the internet and scream bloody hell to Square Enix, but that is not all to this story…
The other day someone told me that Batman was not a super hero based on the fact that he is only a man, no special powers, just a regular guy. At first I gave my response, a bit angrily I might add, and went on my way. Then I thought to myself, if this person feels this way then surely others do too. Now I wouldn’t be a good Batman fan if I didn’t squash this thought and spread the good word of the Bat. So here it is, my full thoughts on not just why Batman is a super hero but why he is quite possibly the best super hero ever.
Get ready for the long haul on this one folks.
The newest installment in the Mission Impossible franchise hit theaters this Holiday and this time around it is directed by none other than Brad Bird (Yupp, the Incredibles guy). In my opinion with the James Bond franchise swinging towards more realistic scenarios, I’m seeing this franchise taking over in the high impact action movie scene. Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruise) is back a few years after the events of MI:III and his team this time around consists of Brandt (Jeremy Renner), Benji (Simon Pegg) and Jane (Paula Patton).
Ghost Protocol is by far the funniest Mission Impossible, large thanks to Simon Pegg’s character who frequently comes into the action sequences and steals the scene with his comments. By no means does this take place of the action, because this movie has tons of it.
