Remnants & Relics. Buttonhole *Special* Feature

Welcome dear reader to Remnants & Relics, the first in an ongoing series of features looking back at various aspects of yesterday's video games. This series is one that I'd hoped to kick off many months ago, but I just haven't had the time to do it justice, until now. So consider this your opportunity to put on your best pair or rose-tinted glasses, open up a luke-warm can of clichés and prepare to hop aboard the way-back-machine.... It came from beyond two dimensions! -A Look Back at Isometric Gaming-

ACMI Day Tripper

Welcome Buttonhole readers to another feature that is so choc-full of goodness that I've divided it into several sections. The top half is about the Indy video games showcased at ACMI. The bottom half is about the Pixar exhibit. It's ridiculously long and all terribly interesting to read, so you may as well read it in two halves, or just the parts that interest you. After reading about the ACMI exhibits on their website and getting more than a little excited, I decided to make the perilous trek to inner Melbourne. With time on my side and money stuffed in my pocket I ventured forth to the train station. Once on board I passed the time by staring out the window, reading a volume of Dark Horse's Concrete and snacking on tasty fruit. Arriving at Flinders St, I wandered around until inevitably finding my way out of the rat-maze like station.

Classic Comic-book Review. Kraven's Last Hunt

"Here lies Spider-Man - Slain by the Hunter" So reads the grave of one of histories greatest superheros. "But he's not dead, is he? What happened to everyone's favourite web-slinger? Spidey seems to be alive and well now, what with his three movie deal and a string of monthly Marvel comic-book titles to his name, so why was he buried six feet under? The year is 1987. The company is Marvel. The character is Sergei Kravinov also known as 'Kraven the Hunter.' Back in the 60's Stan and Steve (Lee and Ditko, respectively) churned out a heap of cool villains for the title "Amazing Spider-Man." Doctor Octopus, The Cham

Zombie Guide BookThe Zombie Survival Guide by Max Brooks
Be prepared.

by Tyz
Finally, a guide has appeared to help us deal with the constant threat that hangs over our lives – an attack by the undead. We all like to think that we could survive a zombie attack, or that it would never happen in our town. Max Brooks’ new book shows us that you must be prepared for the day when an army reanimated corpses comes banging at your door. In the wake of Y2K and September 11 there has been an influx of survival guides and disaster manuals – released to a public eager to counter the threats they see all around them. Not since the height of the Cold War have people been so keen to shell out their hard-earned cash for a book on how to dig a hole and lie in it. The Zombie Survival Guide however, does a public service by alerting the people of the world to a threat whic... Read On
Dave Gorman's Googlewhack Adventure
Book Review

by Tyz
There are two aspect of this book’s title that you may find confusing. Firstly – a “Googlewhack” is what happens when you put two words into the Google search engine, and it comes back with one page found. If you have any idea of how the Google search engine works, you would know this is quite an unlikely event. ... Read On
Chuck Palahniuk: Non-Fiction
Book Review

by Tyz
I read the novel Fight Club before it became a blockbuster movie starring Brad Pitt. The above sentence is a total lie, but how cool would it be if it was true? I would have a lot of literary street-cred (there is such a thing; it just comes from a better class of street). ... Read On

Danny Wallace: Join Me
Book Review

by Tyz
I don't want to give much of the story away, as the most wonderful part of this book is watching it all unfold. This true story starts rolling when Danny Wallace places an ad in a London newspaper asking for people to "Join" him by sending him a passport photo. Wallace did this out of boredom, just to see what would happen. He never would have guessed the result. ... Read On

Only Yesterday. Anime Review

The problem with having favourite films is that every time I watch another Studio Ghibli film it becomes my new favourite. It kind of renders the word 'favourite' meaningless when every Studio Ghibli film takes my breath away. Still, I can't complain about being thoroughly entertained by this whimsical and insightful film, "Only Yesterday". This gem was directed by Isao Takahata, well known for his anime film Grave of the Fireflies. Although Only Yesterday is a light hearted film that ambles along at a leisurely pace, it still manages to explore themes such as love, work, family relationship struggles, following your dreams and country versus city living. In the film, the main character Taeko decides to take a working vacation in the country, getting away from her office bound job and unexpectedly starts t

Speed Grapher V1. Anime Review

Well, "I don't like it" was my initial feeling when viewing this Anime for the first time. Subsequent viewings haven't changed my views a great deal. Nothing really stands out as being absolute shit but it seems that this series tries too hard. It's almost like they were more interested in creating something 'edgy' and confronting but sadly forgot to include an even remotely palatable story. The hero of this particular piece is a bloke called Tatsumi Saiga. Tatsumi is a photographer and a veteran war journalist for whom taking photos has become somewhat of a fetish. Although he seems to have become jaded - nothing is worth wasting his film on - that is, at least until he stumbles across an exclusive club for the mega rich
