There are three things you can always count on in a Quentin Tarantino movie: pop culture references, swearing, and a lot of killing. It's the latter bit that's the focus of this supercut, which shows off every single death in Tarantino's filmography, from Reservoir Dogs to Django Unchained.
Faith in moviegoing audiences: restored. Guardians of the Galaxy opened at #1 at the US box office, and it's no surprise why. Sadly, it only held this spot for 10 days before being unceremoniously ousted by Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, a movie that's being almost universally disliked by fans and non-fans alike. Thankfully, everyone came to their senses, and on its 18th day of release, Guardians is back on top.
I try my best not to be jaded and curmudgeonly about the things I love, especially movies, but I am absolutely dumbfounded how this trend is gaining any traction in any part of the world. Apparently, a few cinemas in China are rolling out a new feature: screens that display text messages from the audience about the movie that's currently playing. I don't even.
When the writer of Deus Ex says he wants to make an espionage-thriller game with a nonlinear narrative, emphasis on dialogue, and a Magic: The Gathering-inspired combat system... I say, yes please, and open my wallet.
Welcome to The Pull List, a weekly column where I check out the first issue of a new comic and tell you whether or not you should start following that comic based only on that. I'm not going to lie, I'm a pretty big fan of Grant Morrison and his particular brand of insanity, so I was pretty excited to hear that he would be helming a new event series from DC Comics called The Multiversity. Needless to say, issue one is pretty mind-boggling.
This week, Matt, Ryan, Sean, and Moo talk about P.T. AKA Silent Hills, an upcoming game from Hideo Kojima (what) Guillermo Del Toro (what?) and Norman Reedus of The Walking Dead (WHAT??), and also about the problem of revisiting games we have a lot of nostalgia for.
Courtesy of Warner Bros. UK, a full-length trailer for the Batman prequel series Gotham has arrived. It's probably the least "teaser-ey" one yet, and actually features a pretty good look at all of the major players, including Jada Pinkett Smith's Fish Mooney, one of the show's original characters.
As with most big budget movies, Guardians of the Galaxy was in development for quite a while before it was revealed to the public in 2012. In fact, Marvel head honcho Kevin Feige first mentioned the possibility four years before the film would hit theaters. During that time, the character designs and visual style went through a lot of changes.
The final wing of Naxxramas, Hearthstone's first singleplayer "adventure," arrived last night. As before, the most challenging portion of the new wing, the Frostwyrm Lair, is Heroic mode, which pits you against beefed up versions of the final two bosses. If you're having trouble getting through Sapphiron and Kel’Thuzad, here are the two decks I used.
No, MAG (Manga-Anime Guardians) is not some awesome metamanga about protecting manga from manga-destroying pirates; rather, it's a very real organization put together by the Japanese government to crack down on manga/anime piracy--albeit in the most inconceivably stupid ways possible, as outlined by this handy (and hilarious) video by the good folks at Tofugu.
It turns out fish are good at lots of things we don't give them credit for. They've been playing Pokemon for awhile now. Now they're playing Street Fighter. Once you see the simple setup that allows the fish to play video games the mind just explodes with possibilities.
Despite the fact that Warner Bros. has not yet officially announced a Shazam movie, Dwayne Johnson has basically gone ahead and confirmed it anyways. While promoting Hercules in Mexico, Johnson not only flatly admitted that Shazam is in development, but also added that he hasn't made up his mind on which character he wants to play.
If you've been on Twitter or Reddit's r/gaming board today, you've probably seen a lot of anger, confusion, and name-calling over a game developer named Zoe Quinn. As with most of these social media-fueled controversies, it becomes hard to tell where the opinions end and the actual story begins. So in an attempt to clarify an increasingly muddled issue, here are just the facts on what's been going on over the past couple of days.
