On the fence about picking up an Xbox One this Friday? Well, would 30-minutes of footage from one of the Xbox One’s biggest launch titles, Dead Rising 3 help you make your decision? I bet it just might! You can check out the first half-hour of Dead Rising 3 below. Show More Summary
Aaron Paul was highly memorable on Breaking Bad, and is generally a really nice guy. Which is probably why he’s involved with video game adaptation Need For Speed in the first place; they kept bugging him until he said yes. Either that or he got a very large check. See how long you can sit through this trailer before you start wondering how big of a check they offered Paul.
Gamma Squad officially launched on this day four years ago, and we haven’t needed pants since. In previous years, we’ve celebrated our birthdays with birthday animals, but we’re doing things a little differently this year. We’re going...Show More Summary
The Pete Holmes Show just uploaded a new “Ex-Men” segment of Pete Holmes as Professor X firing the least useful mutants. He’s already knocked Angel for being just a bird, called Gambit garbage without his cards, and told Wolverine to...Show More Summary
Well here’s an interesting one — 100 Bullets artist Eduardo Risso recently let slip at a Brazilian comic convention that he and Paul Dini (producer of the classic Batman The Animated Series) are working on a Vertigo title set in the Batman Universe. Yes please. Show More Summary
There was a lot of concern, when it was announced that an episode of Arrow would serve as a backdoor pilot for The Flash, that the two wouldn’t mesh well. But apparently we’re not going to find out; The Flash is getting a pilot of his very own. Apparently this is because they want the show to look its best.
Keeping track of video game releases isn’t as easy as it once was — the volume of games released each week is constantly expanding, and they’re spread over a mind-boggling array of platforms (consoles, PC, Mac, handhelds and mobile). Well, I’m here to make things a little easier on you. Every week I’ll rattle off five games I think you should check out.
Batman fans sometimes have deep pockets, building turbine-powered batmobiles, Bat-themed home theaters, and personal batcaves. If you’re one of those vigilante billionaire types, you can now get a one-of-a-kind Keaton Batmobile replica at auction for an expected £70,000 – £90,000 (US$113,000-$145,000). Show More Summary
So, the Playstation 4 is out and selling pretty damn well, even though there’s not much to actually play on it yet. Thankfully the upcoming PS4 exclusive InFamous: Second Son is looking pretty darn solid in its latest trailer featuring new protagonist Delsin showing off his fancy “Neon” powers (which look a lot like the electric powers from past InFamous games except pink).
So, the PS4 launch can safely be classified as “successful”; it sold over a million units within twenty four hours of its Friday release. But that also means it’s in demand, and through the holiday season, a hot toy can be hard to get. If you want to give someone a PS4 for Christmas, here’s how to do it.
A local news station in Tulsu, Oklahoma, conducted an interview with Jim Pace and other ghost hunters. What happens at two and a half minutes into the video below is a triumph. We’re making a note here. HUGE SUCCESS. 2NEWS did this segment about SPOOK (Sooner Paranormal of Oklahoma), and yes that is their actual name and yes they use Comic Sans on their website.
Well the good news is that Sony sold over 1 million PS4 consoles in just over 24 hours. The bad news is not all of those consoles work. A very vocal minority of early PS4 adopters are affectionately referring to a system crippling issue as “the blue light of death” and there seems to be no fix in sight.
Once again it’s time for our Friday comics cosplay feature, casting the spotlight on the best comics related costumery from the cosplay community. As always, we’re focusing on those cosplayers who we think deserve special recognition for their hard work creating the best costumes, whatever their budget, and also the work of those photographers who capture them for posterity.
Kyle Rayner is not having a good time of it in the New 52. Sure, he’s a a White Lantern, but he’s cut off from family and friends due to his seeming untimely death, mistrusted by most of the universe, and he’s stuck babysitting the remnants of the Guardians. And if this preview of Green Lantern: New Guardians is any indication, his luck isn’t turning around anytime soon.
In just a little over two weeks all three major console makers will all have new machines on the market, which means it’s finally time to bid a fond farewell to seventh generation consoles. Sure, a few more current gen (soon to be last gen) games are still on the way, but the era of the Xbox 360, Playstation 3 and Wii is rapidly drawing to a close.
You’ll see a lot of things in Eidos Montreal’s take on the Thief franchise. A darker Garrett. A grittier setting. Stuff being stolen. One thing you won’t see? “Press X To Not Die.” In a recent community FAQ, Eidos Montreal posted why, precisely, this annoying staple was being done away with. Turns out Internet Rage is actually good for something.
The Playstation 4 launches today so Sony threw a big press-conference party last night, and Naughty Dog pretty much stole the show. First by officially unveiling the first major chunk of The Last of Us story DLC and then by teasing a...Show More Summary
Terrence Howard recently credited 2008?s Iron Man with “killing his career“. When he signed on to play Col. James Rhodes (War Machine), he was the first actor on board and was reportedly paid more than the rest of the actors were later offered. The deal was set, so Marvel had to give him plenty of cash to buy lots of new hats.
J.J. Abrams’ production company Bad Robot has tweeted the first set picture (of sorts) from Star Wars: Episode VII, which won’t be in theaters until December of 2015. The picture shows R2-D2 in the Bad Robot workshop. We repeat, R2-D2 is in the Bad Robot workshop. Operation “Break The F–k Into The Bad Robot Workshop” is go.
This is it; the top tier of console releases for the past generation, according to two nerds. Here are six through ten, and a quick discussion of why a few franchises didn’t make it. First, our methodology was profoundly unscientific; basically we listed the thirty games we thought were the best, and then collated the list to see where each ranked.
