Geek du Jour - The Last Story para a Wii

Sim, agora tenho uma Wii, portanto posso estar excitado por isto:

Advinhem lá quem é que tem a mãozinha nesta tarte de RPG nipónico? Vejo uma mãos no ar....
Hironobu Sakaguchi na direcção! E nada mais, nada menos que Nobuo Uematsu a tratar da música.
Depois da bosta que foram os últimos Final Fantasy é bom saber que algures no Japão ainda pensam em fazer bons JRPGs.
Só um reparo...Last Story?! Não podiam ser mais óbvios?

The First Zombie-Proof House

Can i get one of these, pretty please?

From All That Is Interesting:
“The Safe House,” designed by KWK Promes, starts to get eerily close to something I could work with, if say 200 bludgeoned members of the undead army came over to eat their way into borrowing some sugar.

The house, with its movable walls, has only one entrance, which is located on the second floor after crossing a drawbridge. Seems like the perfect opportunity to use a flamethrower and defend the life of your family, while stylishly nesting in a piece of architectural elitism.
