Why won't my computer play the video?
You may need to update your Windows Media Player to version 10 or above. You may also need to update your Java.
What does open port 1935 mean?
Ports are Internet entryways that send date into and out of your computer. When you get the message to open the port 1935, most likely you are using Adobe Media Flash Player, and you will need to open port 80 as well to get the movie to work.
I get a blank screen and the movie still won't work, now what?
Try opening ports 843 and 443 on your computer, or shutting off your firewall while you watch the movie.
The last thing you can do change the settings on your router to open a DMZ or DMZ Host. Please keep in mind that this is a risky thing to do if you aren't using it to play games on your XBOX 360 or PS3, because it allows anyone to access the information your computer. If you have to do this, be sure to shut off the DMZ or DMZ Host as soon as you are done watching the movie!

While "[REC] 3" was a complete disaster, "[REC] 4: Apocalypse" still promises to be good. It is directed by Jaume Balaguero, the co-producer of the first two movies, and not Paco Plaza, who decided to ditch the first-person perspective and get rid of the found footage format in the third movie. A decision, by the way, that completely ruined the overall tone and sense of frenetic urgency that made the first two movies so damn scary.
"Shadow of the Eternals" is the spiritual successor to "Eternal Darkness: Sanity's Requiem ," one of the best, and most underrated, Game Cube survival horror games.
One of the most unique elements of Eternal Darkness was the way that the game played with your head. It not only had extremely creepy atmosphere, when the characters sanity levels got too low, the game would break the fourth wall- the character would start to shrink as you walked, the game would show an error screen to make it appear that the game had frozen while you were playing it, and so on. Your character could even appear to die in a "hallucination" sequence. All of these things made Eternal Darkness one of the best survival horror games I have ever played.
Because of this, I am really excited to announce that the game's spiritual successor, "Shadow of the Eternals," is currently under development for the PC and the Wii-U.
