About Planets of the Apes

Planet of the Apes is an American science fiction media franchise consisting of films, books, television series, comics, and other media about a world in which humans and intelligent apes clash for control. The series began with French author Pierre Boulle’s 1963 novel La Planète des Singes, translated into English as Planet of the Apes or Monkey Planet. The 1968 film adaptation, Planet of the Apes, was a critical and commercial hit, initiating a series of sequels, tie-ins, and derivative works. Arthur P. Jacobs produced the series under APJAC Productions until his death in 1973; since then 20th Century Fox has owned the franchise.

Four sequels followed the original film between 1970 and 1973. They are Beneath the Planet of the Apes, Escape from the Planet of the Apes, Conquest of the Planet of the Apes, and Battle for the Planet of the Apes. They did not approach the critical acclaim of the original but were commercially successful. The series also spawned two television series in 1974 and 1975. Plans for a film remake stalled in “development hell” for over ten years. Tim Burton’s Planet of the Apes was finally released in 2001.A new reboot film series commenced in 2011 with Rise of the Planet of the Apes, which was followed by Dawn of the Planet of the Apes in 2014; another sequel, titled War for the Planet of the Apes, is planned for a 2017 release. Other media and merchandising tie-ins include books, comics, video games, and toys.

Other media and merchandising tie-ins include books, comics, video games, and toys.

Planet of the Apes has received particular attention for its treatment of race, which critics consider its primary theme. Critics have also written on its Cold War and animal rights themes. The series has had a wide influence on subsequent films, media, and art, as well as popular culture and political discourse.

Resident Evil Outbreak http://geekgasm.com/267/resident-evil-outbreak http://geekgasm.com/267/resident-evil-outbreak#comments Mon, 08 May 2017 09:00:08 +0000 http://geekgasm.com/?p=267 Race against the clock and help others escape Raccoon City!

The post Resident Evil Outbreak appeared first on Geekgasm.

]]>
Resident Evil Outbreak is a 2003 survival horror game that is exclusive to the PlayStation 2. It is the first Resident Evil video game title with multiplayer capability.

Resident Evil Outbreak

Resident Evil Outbreak had a troubled development process.

Initial Planning and Cancellation

According to a 2002 Weekly Famitsu interview with producer Noritaka Funamizu, the first concept of Resident Evil Outbreak was known before the release of Resident Evil 2 in 1998.

With growing interest in the concept of network gaming over consoles, Shinji Mikami, the director of the first Resident Evil, suggested to Funamizu that he should give it a try.

Early on in the design, Funamizu made a small multiplayer mini-game in which the player must survive the longest time possible. However, the team decided to remove it due to its failure to encourage teamwork. Players would instinctively run away from the horde and be slaughtered rather than help one another to ensure their own survival.

The design team decided that what made Resident Evil scary was its lack of multiplayer, forcing gamers to play “on their own”. The team chose the game to follow its own story like the other games in the series, but keep the option for multi-player.

The game development was later put on hold.

Revival

Before 2002, Capcom decided to revive development of the game, based on the research gathered from the first attempt.

Production Studio 1 began its development of the game, as opposed to Mikami’s Studio 4. In February 2002, a Sony press conference regarding the PlayStation 2 revealed the game—previously unheard-of by the public, it had a working title of Biohazard Online. This had led to confusion amongst the audience before Capcom released a statement confirming its existence.

Resident Evil Outbreak was a part of an initiative from Capcom’s Production Studio 1 to develop three networks focused games on the PlayStation 2. The other games were Auto Modellista and Monster Hunter. Capcom’s goal was to have at least one of the games reach a million sales. Both Monster Hunter and Resident Evil Outbreak eventually reached this goal.

The game made an appearance at Sony’s conference on May 21 at E3 2002, with a video showcasing real-time 3D backgrounds (as opposed to pre-rendered); revealing four of the characters and demonstrating the ad-lib system and character communication. The “ad-lib system” was chosen over conventional microphone chat because the development team argued that it would ruin the atmosphere. Instead, limited chat options were used for conversation between users; a player would walk up to another and deliver a line from a particular conversational category (e.g. “help” and “go” categories). No solid release date was given at that time.

https://plus.google.com/+residentevilfanboy/posts/Hf1SmT48Gg4

Biohazard Network

Later that year the game was renamed Biohazard Network. By October, eighteen different scenarios were in development, with even more in the concept phase. In November, Capcom released various pieces of media, showing eight playable characters and familiar scenarios such as “Flashback.” The occupations of the characters were also given.

In January 2003, further information was provided, mostly regarding interactive NPCs (non-player characters). Capcom boasted such actions as enemy NPCs who would attack the player and other ones that would run away when approached. Screenshots of “Flashback,” “Underbelly,” “The Hive” and other scenarios were released.

Biohazard Outbreak and Cutbacks

By May 2003, the game’s title had been changed again. This time, it had been changed to “Biohazard Outbreak” (Resident Evil Outbreak outside Japan), and the number of scenarios was reduced to the five scenarios. Another five scenarios did not make the initial cut, although they were complete enough to be featured in the E3 2002 trailer, and were developed into the sequel Resident Evil Outbreak File #2. In September, doubts were raised as to Outbreak’s online game-play in Europe, but Capcom was adamant that it would at least try to find a way to solve the problem in time for release.

The creative team includes the following people:

  • Director Eiichiro Sasaki.
  • Writers Haruo Murata and Takeshi Nose.
  • Producers Tsuyoshi Tanaka, Katsuhiro Sudo, and Tsuyoshi Tanaka.
  • Artists Yuji Imamura and Yoshinori Ono.
  • Composers Akihiko Matsumoto, Tetsuya Shibata, and Etsuko Yoneda.

Story

Resident Evil Outbreak depicts a series of episodic storylines. Stories take place during the same general timeline as Resident Evil 2 and Resident Evil 3: Nemesis. Survivors must race against the clock and help others escape Raccoon City!

Around Every Corner. Behind Every Door. Deep In Every Shadow. Terror Waits.

Witness the revolutionary Resident Evil gameplay, multi-player scenarios and next level design in this totally new, dramatic, cooperative gameplay experience. Take on the role as one of 8 survivors of an outbreak caused by a secret biological weapon. Play in offline or online* mode to create contagiously addictive play scenarios you’ll want to try and relive again and again.

This time, it’s personal! — Capcom USA

Online

Resident Evil Outbreak is the first entry in the Resident Evil series to feature cooperative online multiplayer gameplay. Online support was not available for the PAL versions of the game.

Resident Evil Outbreak - Cindy and Mark

Cindy and Mark are searching for supplies inside J’sBar in Resident Evil Outbreak.

Up to four players could participate simultaneously in one scenario. In single-player mode, the player is accompanied by two AI-controlled characters.

Virus Gauge
Outbreak introduces the “virus gauge,” which limits the number of time players may spend on a scenario. The virus gauge rises at different rates for different characters. It also increases rapidly if the character is attacked or crawling on the ground.

Kevin Ryman is eliminating zombies. Notice the “virus gauge” in the bottom right corner.

Online Servers Shut Down

The game lost all online play capabilities for the USA servers in 2007. The Japan servers stayed up but finally went down in July 2011.

Trivia

Did you know that Outbreak created a t-Virus text message outbreak panic? On August 18, 2004 Sophos reported that the Resident Evil Outbreak marketing campaign backfired as users panic about mobile phone virus. Ironic, isn’t it?

Anyway, here are a few more interesting things about Outbreak:

This is the first Resident Evil to include online play.

Each of the scenarios had a different designer.

In Japan, the game requires a monthly fee for online gameplay, while North America’s version doesn’t.

A file in the “The Hive” scenario says that a number code and voice print allows you to access floors 4F and B3F. This is exactly how Carlos accesses those floors in Resident Evil 3: Nemesis.

“The Hive” scenario name comes from the first Resident Evil (2002) film. It is the name of the underground Umbrella lab.

North American servers shut down as of January 2nd, 2008. Servers for the Japanese version are still up; however, with a monthly random cost.

The game features Raccoon City streets, an underground Umbrella lab, the Raccoon General Hospital, Apple Inn, and the Raccoon University.

The game also revisits two areas seen in previous Resident Evil games. The underground laboratory from Resident Evil 2 appears in the “Below Freezing Point” scenario. The hospital from Resident Evil 3: Nemesis appears in the scenario “The Hive”.

Media

Screenshots and videos from the “Outbreak” scenario which is the game’s first level.

The Aside post format is for brief snippets of text that aren’t quite whole blog posts, such as quick thoughts and anecdotes.

Aside Posts

When you lean towards someone and tell them a little bit of information, you are making an “aside” comment. In blogs, you can do that on your blog by passing on small bits of information to your readers called Asides.

Typically styled without a title. Similar to a Facebook note update.

Also known as remaindered links or “linkblog,” Matt Mullenweg, developer of WordPress, was the first to implement Asides and it soon spread far and wide and became a very popular method of adding little bits of information to your blog.

Something posted as “aside” is a relaxing break from all the work that goes into producing quality, full-length article. Aside posts are often considered the purest form of blogging. They are short snippets that allow you to quickly share thoughts with the world and easily connect readers with compelling content.

Post Formats

Geekgasm allows authors to decide what format each of their posts should have. Post formats add arbitrary value to WordPress posts which define the visual representation of a post. Theme developers can create themes with support for post formats. Many post formats are available; however, it is not possible for themes or plugins to introduce custom post formats. It is not necessary for theme developers to support all post formats.

Our website supports the following WordPress post formats:

  • Standard – The default post format. This article is using the default post format.
  • Aside – A note-like post usually styled without a title.
  • Audio – An audio file.
  • Chat – A chat transcript
  • Gallery – A gallery of images.
  • Image – An image or photograph
  • Link – A link to another site.
  • Quote – A quotation.
  • Status – Twitter-like short status update
  • Video – A post containing video

The post Star Wars Day appeared first on Geekgasm.

]]>
Today is also the international observance of Star Wars Day! May the 4th Be With You!

May 4 is the 124th day of the year (125th in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. And as of today, there are 241 days are remaining until the end of the year.

May 4 is slightly more likely to fall on a Monday, Wednesday or Friday (58 in 400 years each) than on Saturday or Sunday (57). It is also somewhat less likely to occur on a Tuesday or Thursday (56).

We just educated you a bit about today’s date. You’re welcome! 😉

Star Wars Day

Star Wars Day celebrates Star Wars and is followed worldwide by fans of the movies.

Star Wars Day - Darth Vader and Stormtroopers

The Death Star: Destroying planets without harming the environment.

The date was chosen for the easy pun on the catchphrase “May the Force be with you” as “May the Fourth be with you.” Even though the holiday was not created or declared by Lucasfilm, many Star Wars fans across the world have chosen to celebrate the holiday.

May the 4th Be With You

According to the official Star Wars website:

One of the earliest known records of “May the 4th” used in popular culture is in 1979, as described here by author Alan Arnold while he was chronicling the making of The Empire Strikes Back for Lucasfilm:

The phrase dates back to at least 1979, on the day Margaret Thatcher was elected Britain’s first woman prime minister. Her party took out a newspaper ad in the London Evening News that said “May the Fourth be with you, Maggie. Congratulations.”

Say “May the 4th Be With You” out loud and you’ll hear the pun that Star Wars fans worldwide have turned into a rallying cry to proclaim their love of the saga.

We hope you have a have a happy and safe Star Wars Day and May the 4th be with you!

Still here?!

While browsing YouTube, we stumbled upon a hidden gem! A remastered version of Star Wars Gangsta Rap 2 which is an unofficial sequel to Star Wars Gangsta Rap.

While browsing Vimeo, we stumbled upon a charming short film called “The Present” which apparently wins a lot of hearts. It certainly won our hearts!

The Present

The Present is a 2014 animated short film about how a disabled puppy manages to win the heart of his new teenage owner. Jacob Frey directed the film and also co-wrote it along with Markus Kranzler. It is based on “Perfeição,” a comic strip by Fabio Coala.

The Present by Jacob Frey

The Present tells the story of how a boy warms up to his new three-legged dog.

From the Author

After a very successful festival circuit, running on over 180 film festivals and winning more than 50 awards, we’ve decided that it’s finally time to share “The Present” with the rest of the world.

“The Present” is based on a great little comic strip by the very talented Fabio Coala.
Make sure to check out his page: mentirinhas.com.br

“The Present” is a graduation short from the Institute of Animation, Visual Effects and Digital Postproduction at the Filmakademie Baden-Wuerttemberg in Ludwigsburg, Germany.

We really hope you enjoy the result of our hard work. Thanks to everyone who help creating this film and everyone who supported us during the festivals. Thanks a lot for making this such an incredible journey.

The film has won 60 awards from several film festivals and has garnered critical acclaim from critics. As a result of the short film, both Kranzler and Frey were given jobs at Pixar and Walt Disney Animation Studios respectively. Good job, guys!

Don’t forget to check out their IMDB page for more information about the film!

Just Jammin by Gramatik from the 2014 studio album SB#2.

Just Jammin

This song is part of Street Bangerz Vol. 3 (2010), and newer album SB#2 (2014). Denis Jašarević posted the following on Gramatik’s Facebook page on September 20, 2011:

People always ask me what did I sample for ‘Just Jammin’ so I thought I should make it clear here as well. There are no samples in this song, I (poorly) played the keys and bass while my brilliant musician friends Teo Collori & Matthew K. played the guitar and sax. I chopped up Teo’s guitar a bit because that’s just what I do and it really was just a smoked out jammin’ day in the studio that ended with this track on my desktop. 🙂

SB#2

Just Jammin is part of SB#2 by Gramatik

On the second installment in Gramatik’s Street Bangers series, the Slovenian beatmaker chops and loops his way through crates full of rare grooves in his quest for the perfect beat. He casts a wide net, sampling Indian music (“Makes Me Wonder”), ’40s Nat King Cole (“Hit That Jive”), and even classical (“Orchestrated Incident”) alongside all that vintage funk and soul. But whether he’s speeding up vocals or looping fat horn stabs, the end results remain examples of boom bap hip-hop at its most profoundly chilled. —iTunes Review

Welcome to Geekgasm, our little island in the internet ocean.

Who is Geekgasm?

Geekgasm is a site which hopes to bring you little nerdy facts which will hopefully give you a geeky smile. Geekgasm hopes to accomplish this by posting relevant status updates, photos, videos, songs, links, and posts.

In a nutshell, we are an exciting little experiment by people who love technology, gadgets, video games, films, art, photography, memes, and internet culture. You can learn more about us by visiting the About Us page.

Got a question? We probably have an answer. Get in touch with us!

What We Want

We want to deliver interesting and exciting content to those that matter the most: people like you! We will not stick to a standard format of doing things as being spontaneous will keep our content fresh and exciting. Don’t you think?

Anyway, we need the help of people like you! How? By submitting content, of course! Come on; you know you want to! Why not help?

Totally unrelated but here’s a quote by Neil deGrasse Tyson:

I like to believe that science is becoming mainstream. It should have never been something that sort of geeky people do and no one else thinks about. Whether or not, it will always be what geeky people do. It should, as a minimum, be what everybody thinks about because science is all around us.

Yeah, we are that random! Anyway, welcome to our humble little website. We hope you enjoy browsing through our geeky posts. Please do overstay your welcome!

Random fact: we currently have 1 registered users.
