D4VEOCRACY INTERVIEW WITH RYAN FERRIER

Image
Over the weekend I had a chance to interview Ryan Ferrier about the third entry to his smash hit sci-fi comic series D4VE from IDW, D4VEOCRACY. We talked about the continuation of the series and what's to come next. Enjoy.



Billy Tournas: After a quick journey to hell in your series Hot Damn, Valentin Ramon and yourself are back on 34RTH with D4VEOCRACY. How did this all come about?
Ryan Ferrier: Around the time we started working on D4VE2 I began making notes and scribbling down ideas for a potential third arc of the series, and the core idea for what would become D4VEOCRACY was the constant theme. I think both of us knew we had this third and final arc in us, so as soon as Hot Damn production started winding down, we shifted gears back on D4VE. We could’ve gone from D4VE2 to D4VEOCRACY, I remember, but we decided to take a small break for Hot Damn, which I’m so proud of. We missed D4VE a lot though. This third arc has felt nothing but natural.

As this review is a First Impressions of a game that is still in development, there will be no */10 Geeks score at the end. Any aspects of the game discussed here are subject to change in the final version.

Whether or not you enjoy Get Even is going to depend on how much you don't like having every question answered - or even most questions, for that matter. If you're the kind of pop culture consumer who avoids things like Inception, Minority Report, Silent Hill and the collected works of David Lynch, you'll want to add Get Even to that list, then go and reassess your life choices.

Those of us who are keen on all of the above will, most likely, have a ball.

After reading a few reports which detailed several different incarnations of its story, dating as far back as 2013, the version of Get Even that I played had a plot somewhere between Deadly Premonition and Paycheck, with a healthy dose of P.T. mixed in. You play as Cole Black, a Sean Bean-accented mercenary who sta…

January at the movies

Image
Every December when compiling my top 10 films of the year, I stress out to the point that I basically swear off watching movies ever again. So this year, i’m adopting a new approaching; I’m going to maintain a top 10 list all year which will be revisited each month to factor in the new things I’ve seen. An ongoing cinematic cage match as it were; where combatants will face wave after wave of new contenders. Each month I’ll list all the films I watch either theatrically or video on demand and rank them accordingly. I’d love it if you played along as the year goes on and of course if you've see any of these films and agree or disagree with their ranking please feel free to yell at me in the comments below.

January Top 10:
1. Moonlight
2. Jackie
3. Manchester by the Sea
4. Edge of Seventeen
5. Rosalie Blum
6. Perfect Strangers
7. Live by Night
8. Patriot's Day
9. Split
10. Lion
