Link roundup

1. True Hoop: "Poor handwriting on a birth certificate changed Shane Battier's family name from 'Battle' to 'Battier' and they just went with it."

2. I didn't see the movie, so I don't know if I'd agree, but both reviews I read of Don't Be Afraid of the Dark (produced and co-written by Guillermo del Toro) criticized the monster design.

3. From the introduction to a podcast: "Ray Muzyka and Greg Zeschuk co-founded BioWare, the RPG-oriented group that now consists of five locations within Electronic Arts. They started out as doctors (actual practicing medical doctors, mind you), and BioWare was once a developer of games as well as medical software."

4. The upcoming Aliens game for the DS sounds terrific.

  1. For me, the movie was ruined when I saw the monsters, they were just too cute to be menacing. I think Gremlins was a far scarier monster movie.

  2. Remarkable in light of the articles about how much he thinks about monster design.
