One of the best horror summer time shows over the past few years has to be FX’s show, The Strain, the acclaimed thriller from Guillermo del Toro and Carlton Cuse, based off of the best-selling “The Strain Trilogy” by del Toro and Chuck Hogan. Here’s the official synopsis for The Strain season 3.
It can no longer be denied — New York City is rapidly falling to an evil epidemic, and no one is coming to its rescue. Its citizens must fight or die. Dr. Ephraim Goodweather and his unlikely allies tried to take down the embodiment of this evil — the Master — and failed. Now Eph and Dr. Nora Martinez concentrate on creating a biological weapon to wipe out the creatures, while Abraham Setrakian searches for an ancient book he hopes will reveal the strigoi’s entire history… and possibly a way to kill them. Meanwhile, the Master is out for revenge, unleashing new and even more terrifying breeds of bloodthirsty creatures. They need to find a way to defeat him before the infection spreads too far and becomes irreparable… before they become monsters themselves.
The Strain season 3 will return August 28th at 10:00 p.m. Plan your PVR accordingly.
This is just balls to the wall amazing & inspiring. A short film ADAM done & rendered in real-time via the Unity game engine by the Unity team. Check it out in HD Full Screen. More here from the Boing Boing post that I found this on…
Here’s what Unity Technologies has to say about the film
The Unity Demo Team built Adam with beta versions of Unity 5.4 and our upcoming cinematic sequencer tool.
Adam also utilizes an experimental implementation of real-time area lights and makes extensive use of high fidelity physics simulation tool CaronteFX, which you can get from the Unity Asset Store right now.
To make Adam, the Demo Team developed custom tools and features on top of Unity including volumetric fog, a transparency shader and motion blur to cover specific production needs. We’ll make these freely available soon!
Adam runs at 1440p on a GeForce GTX980. Attendees at Unite Europe were able to play with it in real time, and we’ll make a playable available soon so everyone can check it out.

Now I know things got a bit intense with my seething fury for the Bendis speak but thankfully, there’s only lack luster tie-ins this week that range from meh to that’s ok.
Meanwhile over at DC, they’re just handing out the fan apologizes like mad to the point where even the characters are starting to question what the hell was the point of Nu52 as Wonder Woman seeks to find the truth, the Flash remembers that time that Batman cried cause he got a letter from his dead parent and Aquaman is still moist.
I know what you’re thinking, what comics that came out that aren’t just capes? Well, there’s plenty as Prometheus kicks off with some crushing results, Birthright is back from hiatus, and the blood bath of epic proportions comes to a end as Grizzly Shark clashes with Sea Bear in glorious blood drenched colour to see who is the deadliest!
Other mysteries such as if I will actually be able to pronounce Geoff Johns properly, why does geek culture seem a bit stale lately and the pick of the week will all be revealed.
It’s been a while since I’ve been excited for a game from it’s trailer and I’m excited again. Check out the new Watch Dogs 2 trailer. We leave Chicago for San Francisco and enter deeper into the heart of DedSec with a new character named Marcus Holloway. I REALLY enjoyed Watch Dogs video game, I thought it was smart, cunning and enjoyable despite all the repetitive parts like unlocking towers and such. I fell in a gamer crush on their Girl w a Hacker Tattoo from Watch Dogs – she was great to listen to while playing the game. I think Ubisoft may have set the realistic gaming bar even higher when you look at the city scenes & people. Some shots look like they were live action scenes. Here’s hoping that Aiden Pearce shows up. 🙂
Watch Dogs 2 will be coming to PlayStation 4 on November 15th.
