Cracked.com takes on Trespasser

Poor Trespasser get’s hardly any love from the authors of cracked.com, who recently took it upon themselves to point out hilarious attempts at video game realism. As Cracked, one of our favorite time-wasters on the web, puts it:

Trespasser is a shooting game, but without cross hairs to help you aim and interact with the world, because even though those are staples of the genre, they’re just so silly and unrealistic. Instead, in what can only be described as the spiritual predecessor to QWOP, the game forces you to press several keys simultaneously in order to control the position and rotation of your arm and wris

Oh cracked, how can you stab us in the back like this… Either way: undeserving or rightfully on the list – let us know what you think! :)

Crichton’s Third ‘Jurassic Park’ Novel Discovered, ‘Jurassic World’ Canceled For Adaptation

In a surprise discovery, it has been revealed that Michael Crichton wrote a third, untitled, ‘Jurassic Park’ novel that was buried within his unpublished files and documents. Harper Collins, the publishers of his previous posthumous work ‘Pirate Latitudes’ and ‘Micro’, are currently doing final edits on the material to release the third novel by this fall.

“It is an unexpected treasure that words cannot describe,” a representative from Harper Collins said. “The files were unmarked, which was why we hadn’t discovered it until now. It is a breathtaking story that is probably one of the best Crichton had ever written. The way he continued the story is even more fresh than what he did for the other sequel, ‘The Lost World’. At the same time, it is the ultimate fan service.” Harper Collins was weary to share any more details at this time.

There is some bad news, however. Universal Studios released a statement in conjunction with Harper Collins that the next installment in the film series, ‘Jurassic World’, has been canceled in light of this discovery. Frank Marshall had some words for fans of the beloved film franchise.

“Due to the amazing discovery of a third ‘Jurassic’ novel from Crichton, we have made the difficult decision to cancel all production on ‘Jurassic World’ in order to make a faithful adaptation of this new material. The story is truly amazing, and better than anything we have ever come up with. Making our current production would contradict elements in the novel, making an adaptation of it unlikely to ever happen. We want to respect Crichton’s legacy this time, so we feel that putting in the extra time to go back square one will be the best choice. We are sorry to the fans and those involved in this current production for yet another delay again. But trust me when I say that the wait will be worth it. This new novel is incredible,” said Marshall.

There are bound to be mixed emotions with this news. Fans of the novels will be rejoicing, while fans of the films will probably throw their hands up in the air and no longer care what becomes of their favorite franchise ever again. The big question is: what plot does this new novel have that is so good to make an entire film production come to a halt to adapt it instead?

Jurassic Time: Annotated & Excavated Editions Now Released!

  
“John Hammond, the creator of Jurassic Park, and the safeguard of a Lost World, once wrote a memoir that recalled the rise and fall of a dream almost fulfilled…
Join us, as we take a look at his rare audio recordings, and flip through the pages of his long-lost notes documenting just what really happened on the remote islands off the west coast of Costa Rica…”
Its finally released! Fans of Hammond’s memoir from Trespasser can now re-live the experience in two new engaging ways that will drive them out of their minds!
The Annotated audio edition uses the complete John Hammond audio from the game interwoven with a brand-new character created just for this release (Thomas Hammond), you get to hear much more from the game’s original script as intended. Included are enhanced sound effects and brand-new music!
The Excavated book edition of Jurassic Time unearths the entire story of John Hammond using the original script by Austin Grossman, and setting it into the Jurassic Time storytelling narrative. Enhanced with exclusive photographs along with his old recollections, the 80 pages of the book feel like they really had been put together by John Hammond himself.
In addition to both of these editions, the website features valuable resources related to Trespasser, Jurassic Time, and other items. I hope you enjoy the brand-new experience!
