About Rooney

I'm a struggling writer/musician/producer with an over active imagination and penchant for living beyond my means! I have a love of Sci-Fi, loud music, reading, cosplay, and tattoos.

The “All You Need Is Kill” movie is no longer called that. It’s now “Edge of Tomorrow”.

As the title says, the movie has had it’s name changed. I could gripe about this, but I won’t, because it’s new title is actually pretty cool, and does read slightly smoother for us Westerners than the original.

It also has a trailer, included after the jump. Also included after the jump is me griping about stuff related to this trailer…

Book Review: Space Marine Battles: Rynn’s World, by Steve Parker

Ah Games Workshop, they love their Space Marines, their Adeptus Astartes! So it’s no surprise really that most of their publishing imprint’s (Black Library) books are about them, or feature them prominently. Space Marine Battles is a series of novels focussing on notable battles fought by the various chapters of Adeptus Astartes out in the grim darkness of the far future, and the heroes of those chapters. The series was launched in 2010 with the book Rynn’s World, which features the Crimson Fists defending their home world from a massive Ork Waaaagh (translation for non-40k fans: A massive crusade of Orks, with millions of the warmongering aliens rampaging across worlds).

Halo 4, Spartan Ops: It’s awesome, but I have an issue….

I love Spartan Ops, but I have a major issue with the recent ending of season 1. I’ve kept the first part of this post clear of spoilers, but the second half reveals massive details of the ending, so don’t read the latter part if you don’t want it ruined! You have been warned…
