Win a Copy of Dante's Inferno: An Animated Epic
As I've pointed out in a couple of venues, the opening minutes of Dante's Inferno: An Animated Epic feature a mounted knight doing a barrel roll on horseback. I had to rewind the DVD to make sure that I'd correctly processed what I'd seen. Following on from that high bar, as a complete experience, Dante managed to provide the sort of logic breaking spectacle that used to be offered by anime horror/action works like Wicked City and Vampire Hunter D. The animated anthology tie-in to EA's video game inspired by the Inferno book of Dante Alighieri's The Divine Comedy features work from Film Roman, Production IG (Kill Bill animated sequence), Dongwoo (Batman: Gotham Knight), Manglobe (Ergo Proxy, Samurai Champloo) and JM Animation (“Avatar: The Last Airbender”). The animation quality isn't always sterling, but bits, especially those by Manglobe, rise to the occasion of paint vivid images of Hell. Massawyrm has a review here. ANN, Zac Bertschy has a spot on piece here.
AICN is pleased to be able to give away five Dante's Inferno: An Animated Epic prizes. We have two sets of the movie and the EA game for the PlayStation 3 and three copies of the animated feature alone. If you'd like to win one, send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject "Inferno," your postal address and if you're interested in the PlayStation 3 game by midnight eastern time 2/17/10.

Playing Bill Withers' "Aint No Sunshine (When she's Gone) as we see Dante fall through Hell killing demons. I love the juxtaposition of tones there.

Gameplay was somewhat reminscient of God of War and it's pretty cool! Think I might be picking up Bioshock 2 instead, though...

Why is this news everywhere but here?<p> On topic, played the demo, was rather underwhelming. Reviews are echoing the fears I had with demo. Will stick to Kratos' finale.

..."an animated epic". It peeves me every time a headline for it has been posted. Sounds completely pretentious and condescending.
