Under the Radar: women in Total Recall future have evolved, and we’re all for it.
Seriously now.. What’s not to like about that? Women with three boobs? That would be enough to get us to the theater on its own. Add in Jessica Biel, Kate Beckinsdale, guns, a Bladerunner-esque dystopian future and women with three boobs? What could possibly be bad about it? Other than the fact that they don’t go to Mars at all, which was pretty central point of the first one (and, more importantly, the sci-fi novel by Phillip K. Dick that inspired it).

Discussing Scott Waught’s next big project with him.

Nothing we discussed seem high-handed or contrived. He even dressed normally and has great hair.

There’s been a lotta hype about the upcoming Medal of Honor: Warfighter game (available October 23rd), and rightly so. It really does look like it’s going to be a visually stunning game. Until technology advances to the point a game can afflict your other senses, with the grit of sand in your rack to the smell of burn-shitter smoke and that piquant mix of JP8 and diesel, then visuals are all we’ll have. Frostbite 2 damn sure delivers on that score.
