For those of you who aren’t keen with the current news, James Cameron has announced that he has found the tomb of Jesus and is making a documentary about it. He also claims to have found Mary Magdalene and their son Judah.

Being a Christian, this understandably upsets me. However, not all hope is lost.

According to this article, the announcement has little (if any) truth.

“In 1996, when the BBC aired a short documentary on the same subject, archaeologists challenged the claims. Amos Kloner, the first archaeologist to examine the site, said the idea fails to hold up by archaeological standards but makes for profitable television.

Pfann is even unsure that the name “Jesus” on the caskets was read correctly. He thinks it’s more likely the name “Hanun.”

Kloner also said the filmmakers’ assertions are false.

“It was an ordinary middle-class Jerusalem burial cave,” Kloner said.

“The names on the caskets are the most common names found among Jews at the time.”

Whatever happens next, this program is guaranteed to make trillions of dollars. I mean, if The Da Vinci Code did, so will this.

Wise up filmmakers, stop using controversy and made-up stories to sell your product.

First of all, my internet is pretty stupid, thus the lack of updates. Anywho, onto the main story!Age of Conan screenshot

First up, Funcom is making a MMORPG for the PC and Xbox 360 called “Age of Conan” expected for release October 30, 2007. Unlike most MMORPG’s the combat seems to be real-time and pretty intense.

Second, developer Nihilistic is making a single player Conan game for the PS3 and Xbox 360 styled after God of War, simply called “Conan.” The screenshots look amazing, but given the developers track record, the game could be either a hit or miss. Conan is slated for a 2008 release. If you want more info on this game, you’ll have to buy the new copy of “Game Informer” magazine. If you aske nicely though, I may scan some images for you guys…
