[Antisteez Interview]: Documentary Film Maker Adelin Gasana

Cuban America is an expository piece on the sociopolitical reality of Miami-Dade County. In laymen’s terms? Basically the major influence loud and determined Cubans – such as my balsy, gangsta grandfolks and their descendants – have made on this beautiful city of ours. For two and a half years Adelin Gasana has independently written, directed, and produced the film. It essentially documents the 50-year-story of the of the Cuban-American immigrant community that literally took... Read More →

Friends of the Miami-Dade Public Library Need Your Help To Keep The Goods Stocked

Every year the public libraries face more and more budget cuts. Which means for readers like us, fewer new books are purchased, important programs to keep our kids reading are cut and advocacy programs for adult literacy receive less funding. The library system needs all the help they can get and none more-so than our very own. With so much strife and turmoil taking place within Miami-Dade county government it’s almost impossible for anyone to find the time to give a damn about our libraries... Read More →

Most recently they hosted Elizabeth Berkley, yes, Jessie Spano herself. I'm so excited!!... Read More →

Dead Space 2: Gameplay Trailer

We have a gameplay trailer from the sequel of Dead Space. This game is supposed to be a sci-fi horror survival game. I know nothing about this game honestly because I’ve never played the original. I do know that a lot of people are fans of this game so I decided to post it for the Steez heads out there that might be fans of this franchise. Enjoy!

Marvel VS Capcom 3: Fate Of Two Worlds (Extended Trailer)

I had posted awhile back about this game. Why am I reposting about it again? It just so happens they decided to add two more characters to the game in the trailer. One character is Dante from Devil May Cry on the Capcom side and the other one is Deadpool (which happens to be one of my favorite characters in the Marvel and not the shitty Deadpool portrayed on X-Men Origins: Wolverine) on the Marvel side. I know people out there are still stuck on Marvel VS Capcom 2, so this will break a full smile... Read More →

Fallout: New Vegas Gameplay Footage!

One of my favorite games in the whole wide world Fallout 3 is coming out with the next installment of the series. I heard word about it and I saw this cock teaser trailer that showed…not much. Then a few weeks later I started seeing screenshots on a magazine that was pointed out to me by the staff of Gamestop when they heard me talking about how badass Fallout 3 is. For those of you who don’t know jack about Fallout 3, it’s a single player open world game where you choose to be... Read More →

Google’s Digital Distribution For Gaming Web-Based App Store

As we all know, Google has gone from web search engine gods to gods of browser based, app base, and just-about-everything-in-the-internet based. In this article, it’s been announced that Google will be targeting the gaming side of things by distributing games through a web based app store. The article was pretty exciting to read as a gamer and as a fan of Google. Although I don’t have any more information as what’s posted below, I have to admit that my anticipation for this is pretty... Read More →

Microsoft’s Project Natal Ships In October

I’m sorry if I get off my journalist morality by being biased on this particular article. All I have to say is everything that was great about the Nintendo Wii can be chopped down to pieces because Project Natal is ten times what the Nintendo Wii wanted to be. While you still have to hold something in your hands in the Nintendo Wii format, Project Natal makes it completely control free (however, I could have a reasonable size percentage of ignorance on this statement). Gamespot announced the... Read More →

The truth is in the long run we’re been seeing the used game market work in stores like Gamestop and Moviestop. Now these are stores that are specialize in these categories and I mean, shit, we have a Moviestop just... Read More →
