Star Trek 2013 at Destination Star Trek London

TK and Sy at DSTL 2012Today saw the close of Destination Star Trek London (DSTL), there was something for every fan with all five captains in attendance: William Shatner, Patrick Stewart, Avery Brooks, Kate Mulgrew and Scott Bakula. The new Star Trek game which is due for release in early 2013, showcased at both E3 and Gamescom, was also at DSTL where they again showed the 3D trailer – complete with some pretty cool Nvidia battery powered 3D glasses. Although it was the same trailer as seen at Gamescom, this time Namco Bandai Games who were presenting it had added a developer commentary which was a bonus for the fans and helped to explain some of the gameplay and dynamics which included the modified phaser used by Kirk which is a custom weapon for that character.

We’ll have more information about this game on the blog as it becomes available as being a big fan it’s a game that’s going to be close to my heart. In the meantime check out these game trailers here, second one thrown in to show the main game antagonists, the Gorn.

Resident Evil Human Butchery

Now don’t say us Brits never give you anything! This weekend saw Smithfield Meat Market in the east end of London host a pop-up art installation sponsored by Capcom entitled ‘Wesker & Son Resident Evil Human Butchery’ as reported by Neatorama. The exhibition displays meat that has been shaped into edible human body parts available to sample and purchase. This exhibition has been set-up to promote the upcoming release of Resident Evil 6 and all proceeds from the sale of the meat on display will go to the Limbless Association, which provides support to those who have lost limbs.

This ran alongside a series of lectures at St. Bartholomew’s Hospital Pathology Museum, which explored how the the game themes track and can be linked to the real world.

Unfortunately this exhibition is only running until Saturday 29th September, but I’m sure we’ll be seeing more like this in the future if it proves popular.
