  • Record holder for Atari Atari 2600 game ‘Dragster’ stripped title after 35 years

    Posted on by Adam Goldberg

    In 1982, Activision checked the speediest time on its Speedster computer game on the Atari 2600. The record holder was a gamer by the name of Todd Rogers, with a period of 5.51 seconds. As per Twin Galaxies, the present holders of computer game records, this score was likewise recognized by Guinness World Records. In 2017, be that as it may, Twin Galaxies associate, Dick Moreland, authoritatively debated Rogers' speed record, referring to examination by Eric Koziel that indicated such a speed record was scientifically unthinkable. Twin Galaxies has now chosen to expel the greater part of Rogers' speed time score and restrict him from future competition in any of its focused leader board records.

    As confirmed by Polygon, Rogers never gave recorded evidence of his speed record, and his own blog gives just a superficial clarification of how he accomplished the record, perceived as the longest standing gaming record in April of a year ago. Twin Galaxies refers to "numerous credible sources confirming the veracity" of the software and investigation that nullified Rogers' score, and in addition "a significant amount of circumstantial evidence" that goes past his single score (which might be the reason they chose to strip him of all records).

     

     

    Twin Galaxies commented in a forum thread, "We were not there, can not find any of the evidentiary materials they used at the time to confirm the score, and could not find anyone who would on-the-record testify that they directly saw the evidence that was presented to Activision."

  • Blade Runner 2049 Review - Epic Journey of a Dystopian Future

    Posted on by Adam Goldberg

    In many elements, Blade Runner 2049 is much the same as the original film. It was the perfect sequel in that it took the themes from the first film and built on them, while providing a stand-alone piece of art. As far the team here at Nerdformer is concerned, it's one of the best sci-fi films we have seen in a long time, and certainly the equal to the first film. 2049 supersedes its predecessor in a number of ways, and is not only a brilliant sci-fi movie, but one of the best movies of the year. In general, Blade Runner 2049 is well worth a watch if you desire a movie that will cause you to think.

    In a nutshell, Blade Runner 2049 is about how folks relate to one another and their technology. The area of cyberpunk is quite believable since it's closely connected with the world of today.

    Blade Runner 2049 Review

    The story is simply as deep and full of symbolism, metaphors and a whole lot of inner meanings to explore as the original was. It begins with a clear hierarchy of male dominants. If you haven't seen the 1982 film, I strongly suggest watching it before you find this new movie. Past the good plot, the movie oozes with symbolical substance that increases the effects of the story whether it be visually or musically. It is filled with images of women's bodies, and this is precisely what Villeneuve is trying to convey. 

     

    Blade Runner 2049 Review

    We want to keep this review "spoiler free", but the original Blade Runner ought to be on anyone's must-see collection of classic films and it is critical to see before embarking on the 163-minute journey of Blade Runner 2049. You'd think that it's 2 hours and 43 minutes is quite a long time for a film, but not when you're hooked from the very first shot.  

    Just go see Blade Runner 2049, and you can thank us later.

  • 90's Batman Animated Series is Coming to Blu-Ray

    Posted on by Adam Goldberg

     

    It was announced on a panel in New York's Comic Con yesterday that Warner Brothers Would be remastering Batman: The Animated Series for a brand new Blu-ray Launch. This information marks the anniversary of the classic TV series that began an whole world of animations for the FOX network.

    The WB's PR representative Gary Miereanu made the statement when he had been giving off a DVD boxed set of Batman: TAS and stating that it could be the final time Warner Bros. will be giving it away on account of the new Blu-ray variant coming.

    The remastered set is supposed to be released "later in the year" in 2018, but there is no word yet if there'll be a digital 4K launch combined with it or not. In addition, we do not know in different volumes such as the DVDs were or whether the WB intends to launch the individual packs that are Blu-ray together. We do not think that's extremely likely although they might have all 85 episodes on a single disk.

     

     

    The information also follows last July's launch of Batman: Mask of the Phantasm. It was a film that came in the original series.

    It's the first time that the WB has touched this collection since 2004 and there are still a variety of fans seeking to continue to such traditional animated displays out of their own youth.
