Previous | Image 1 of 4 | NextThe new book from Richard Lewis is ‘Reflections From Hell.’

Chicago – The “Prince of Pain” was in Chicago recently. Richard Lewis, the overtly introspective and hilarious stand up comedian, has written a new book – “Reflections From Hell” – and appeared at Chicago’s City Winery, plus sold out two shows at the legendary Zanies comedy club.

Assassin’s Creed III Achievements Leaked

An unconfirmed Achievement list for Assassin’s Creed III has been leaked online, revealing a little bit about the game’s plot and some new features.

Assuming the list is accurate, the leaked Assassin’s Creed III Achievements do contain a few spoilers for the upcoming game. Consider this fair warning.

The best news is that the game’s multiplayer Achievements make up only 80G (spread out over five Achievements) of the total 1000G. Reaching level 20 and unlocking one hacked Astergo video seem to be the two that will be the most time-consuming, so those who prefer single-player won’t be missing much.

As for Assassin’s Creed III‘s single-player Achievements, it appears that you will visit a stadium and skyscraper during the modern-day portions of the game, before traveling to the Abstergo laboratory. Exactly what happens at all three locations is not known, however, at some point you

Synapse Releases 'Hammer House of Horror' in Complete Set

  • Planet Fury
Legendary UK film studio Hammer didn't only dabble in films; Hammer also created thirteen one-hour shorts to be shown on television as Hammer House of Horror. These episodes aired on ITV during the fall of 1980.

I watched Witching Time to get a feel for the release as well as the series. It's a funny thing to pop in a DVD of a made-for-tv series and find the episode shows full nudity before the credits even roll, as is what happens in Witching Time. The UK has always been more open about such things than the supposed 'Land of the Free', and this was certainly true in 1980. That's not to say the nudity shown in Witching Time is overtly lascivious - it's fairly restrained, actually - but it is a reminder how lamely conservative our own "oh please, think of the children" television is.
