Right now, it’s the early autumn of the year as most of the great shows on television have their end of season break.

Mad Men has already polished off the first half of its final season and Game of Thrones is just about to squeeze the last couple of episodes out like someone popping open a man’s head (SPOILER ALERT – someone on that show dies). The Walking Dead will be entering it’s fifth season later this year, and it’s really starting to catch up with the original comic series, instead of lingering on a farm waiting for the barn to burst open (SPOILER ALERT – someone on that show is a zombie).

I was hoping that turning all videogames into a film format was something that would eventually die out. But after the fifth Resident Evil film, chance would be a fine thing. Why bother adapting a video game to a film when most videogames are derivative of major films anyway? On the other hand, there’s a lot of fresh ideas coming out in the world of digital entertainment – for example, BioShock Infinite, a stonkingly mindblowing experience delving into alternative reality theory that will have you yelling at the set as if it just made a rude gesture at your mother, and enough plot twists to make M. Knight Shyamalan say “Now you’re just being silly…”
