Depressing Images Show Iconic “Bates Motel” Sets Being Destroyed

Published

Later this month, we begin to say goodbye to “Bates Motel.”

The fifth and final season of A&E’s episodic prequel to Psycho premieres on Monday, February 20th, and what’s particularly exciting about this season is that we’re going to meet Marion Crane (played by Rihanna). Yes, that essentially means that the new season of “Bates Motel” will play out like the events of Psycho, which is what the show has of course been building to for years.

At the same time, it’s bittersweet. Because this is the beginning of the end.

Photos just posted by the Vancouver Sun have made this all the more real, as they show the destruction of the “Bates Motel” sets that were built for the show in Aldergrove, British Columbia. Filming wrapped up earlier this month, and it didn’t take long for a crew to come in and level the Psycho-accurate replicas of both the Bates house on the hill and the Bates Motel.

Check out some of the sad photos below and see more on Vancouver Sun.

Season Five of “Bates Motel” picks up almost two years later and finds Norman (Freddie Highmore), a grown man now, living a double life. Publicly he’s a happy and well-adjusted member of the White Pine Bay community, but at home Norman struggles; his violent blackouts continue to increase as Mother (Vera Farmiga) threatens to take over his mind completely. Meanwhile, Dylan Massett (Max Thierot) and Emma Decody (Olivia Cooke), since leaving White Pine Bay, have been living their lives blissfully unaware of Norma’s death and Norman’s full on descent into psychosis. Unfortunately for them, they will soon find themselves drawn back into Norman’s insanity, while a vengeful Alex Romero (Nestor Carbonell), who is currently incarcerated for perjury, hungers for a chance to destroy his stepson and avenge the murder of his one true love, Norma Bates.

‘OMDO’ is ‘Doom’ With a Magic Eye Book

Published

on

We all know about Brutal Doom, the amazing mod that’s breathed a whole new experience into classic Doom. But have you tried your hand at OMDO? Or more accurately, have you ever used one of those Magic Eye books?

Yep, someone has taken classic Doom, put the entire shareware episode through a random dot autostereogram (aka a Magic Eye filter thingie), and the result is quite literally something you’ve never played before. Really, this is all just one of those goofy mods that takes the whole “can you do ‘x’ with ‘y’?” phrase and runs with it.

As mentioned, the entire shareware episode of Doom (which is Knee Deep In The Dead) has this effect applied to it, so either you cross your eyes or relax them to the point that you’ll be able to see what you’re playing. It also helps to have memorized the maps. It can also be difficult to play for long periods, so don’t go crazy.

To find out more about this mod, head to its homepage.

Yes, this is an actual screenshot.

‘Devil May Cry 5’ Likely Coming Out “Before End of March 2019”

Published

on

It took its sweet time, but Devil May cry 5 is on its way. And sooner than you think.

The E3 trailer gave a Spring 2019 release date, but according to Capcom’s investor relations arm, that window has been narrowed to before the end of March. In the same press release, Capcom’s other big reveal, the Resident Evil 2 remaster, is again confirmed for its January 25th, 2019 release date.

Devil May Cry 5 is being directed by Hideaki Itsuno, who also directed Devil May Cry 3, Devil May Cry 4, and most recently, Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen. Judging from the trailer, the game appears to have DMC4‘s Nero as the main protagonist, with Dante being secondary. Or, it could be Capcom messing with us again.

We’ll find out as the game creeps closer to release.

‘Angels of Death’ Set for Release on the Nintendo Switch June 28th

Published

on

I can’t say that I’m familiar with Playism’s psychological horror game Angels of Death. The game was originally released as Freeware, but has since made its way to Steam. It’s also spawned a manga adaptation, and an anime adaptation that’s scheduled to air later this summer. And now, the game is headed to the Nintendo Switch, where it will be on the Nintendo eShop June 28th for $14.99. You can also pre-order it now for a 10% discount.

The game is divided up into four parts, and centres on Ray, a girl who awakens in a room resembling a basement, with no memory of how she got there. While searching for the exit, she happens upon Zack, a murderer whose entire face is bandaged up, and whose clothing resembles the Grim Reaper. Begging her to kill him, Ray promises to fulfil his wish only if he helps her to escape.
