Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Movies,

Mena SuvariMena Suvari would like to move to the UK.

The 33-year-old actress spent time here while working on wedding comedy The Knot, and she had such a great time in Britain she would consider relocating in the future - especially to London because it is so "vivacious."

"I haven't had much time to do much sightseeing but I did manage to do a road trip in a Mini to Stonehenge. It was lots of fun despite being a little tricky driving on the other side of the road. I hope to see more of England in the future. I might even move here. I love England. There is so much history here. London is an amazing city, it's so vivacious."

The country is not the only British thing Mena - who recently completed her divorce with second husband Simone Sestito - is into, she is also a big fan of supermodel Kate Moss and in particular, her style: "I love Kate's look, she is so stunning and never seems to age. How does she do that?"

Lady Gaga Wants to Marry in UK Castle

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Music, Dating, Weddings, Rumors,

Luc Carl and Lady Gaga wants to get married in a British castle.

The “Alejandro” singer has reportedly told members of her stage crew that she wants to tie the knot with rumored boyfriend Luc Carl after performing her UK shows in December.

“Lady Gaga has told everyone she plans to get married. She has said she wants a fairytale wedding in a castle. “We finish the European leg in London just before Christmas and the timing is perfect for the wedding,” a source said.

According to the insider, the eccentric singer has a string of wishes for her big day, including arriving in a horse-drawn carriage, wearing wedding rings similar to Elvis Presley’s horseshoe ring and to have burlesque star Dita Von Teese spring from a cake and perform one of her raunchy routines.

It was recently claimed the pop star - who first dated Luc in 2005 before rekindling their romance recently - plans to buy a British castle, fuelling speculation she wants to host her wedding in her own house.

“No expense will be spared in her quest to make this dream come true. It’s her childhood dream and she’s particularly interested in castles in the north of England or Scotland.”


Interview: Hadouken!

Hadouken!

Hadouken, a special move belonging to Capcom’s influential game Street Fighter, can now also be associated to a band just as influential.

Hadouken! has been making waves with their grime, techno, new rave music in the UK and around the world. But putting this band in a genre is just criminal. Hadouken! will hit you in the face and finish you off with an uppercut with their high energy beats that will move the body of even the stiffest of men – even dead ones.

If you have not yet heard of Hadouken!, you soon will. EA (Electronic Arts) /Artwerk has picked up this band to enrich our EA gaming experiences with sounds that can only be called one thing – awesome. 

If I haven’t interested you yet into checking this band out, you are just crazy.  I highly recommended giving this band a spin. For the Masses, Hadouken!’s album, can be found on iTunes, and can be downloaded here. YOU GO NOW!

Now that you’ve downloaded the album and loved it, it’s time to get up close and personal. I had the opportunity to chat with guitarist Dan Rice about the band, videogames, and all things music.

Xbox 360 Final Fantasy Ad Banned in the UK

An ad for the version of Final Fantasy XIII has been removed from UK screens after being accused of using PS3 footage. Sqaure Enix admitted to the ruse, but added that the ad was made entirely from pre-rendered cut scenes that look no different from the Xbox 360 version. The PS3 version of FF13 does indeed look a bit sharper, but not enough to really be noticeable, especially when viewing it in standard definition broadcasted over the air. However, Square states that the ad, comprised of FMV cut scenes, “could have been captured on any device”. Though, apparently the UK doesn’t take too kindly to duping viewers with interchangeable video game footage, as the ad has since been banned from the air. See the ad and judge for yourself above.

Nintendo DS R4 Cards Now Illegal In UK

R4 CardIn an attempt to thwart rampant piracy of their line of video games, Nintendo has been combating the use of the R4 card and other methods of pirating for years. Finally, has seen a tremendous victory come about in the form of the banning of R4 cards in the United Kingdom.

Previously, the R4 card was used (or supposed to used at least) to install homebrew games that indie developers would cook up for the DS. However, the R4 could also be loaded with easily accessible retail versions of Nintendo DS titles from major developers posted online. This posed a big problem to not only Nintendo, but to the developers who saw a decline in their sales. With digital downloads of their games available online, and easily transferable to one of these R4 cards, it seemed that their games didn’t stand a chance at retail. Why purchase something when you can get it for free?

In light of this misuse of R4 cards, a UK court has ruled in favor of Nintendo, making the R4 card illegal in the UK. While this comes as a huge victory to Nintendo, we must shed a tear for the indie homebrew developers who actually used the R4 cards for its intended purpose.

Nintendo had this to say:

“In the UK alone, there have been over 100,000 game copying devices seized since 2009. Nintendo initiates these actions not only on its own behalf, but also on behalf of over 1,400 video game development companies that depend on legitimate sales of games for their survival.”
