Facebook Tests Labeling Satirical Content To Spare Idiots From Themselves

Aug
18

MarketWatch, the kind of publication that puts the stock tag and most recent performance after the name of any company they mention, recently revealed that Facebook is testing a bracketed "satire" tag in front of fake news stories like those run by The Onion or Hard Dawn. This will keep the clueless rabble from complaining when they've been duped into believing a story about a clueless local Facebook user. It might also help curb mainstream media reporting on these false news stories. In so much as cable news can be considered "reporting."

An almost pristine copy of the "Holy Grail of comics" is on sale now on eBay. Action Comics #1 was published in June 1938, and features the first ever appearance of Superman.

Marvel Casting Update: Familiar Faces Join Avengers 2 and Ant-Man

Aug
18

The Marvel universe continues to grow, but that doesn't mean we won't be seeing a lot of familiar faces in the upcoming movies. Two bits of casting for their 2015 slate, Avengers: Age of Ultron and Ant-Man, have been revealed, and both of them feature returning Marvel players.

EA Won't Be Giving Out Early Review Copies of Sims 4

Aug
18

Looks like everyone's favorite punching bag is about to get hit a few more times. EA is reportedly not going to be releasing early review copies for The Sims 4. Some might see this as a tactical move on EA's part, perhaps as retalation against an industry that has come to love reporting on all the company's errors. Others will probably just say it's EA being evil and trying to hide how terrible they've made The Sims 4.

Doctor Who's Clara Oswald May Be Leaving the Show Very Soon

Aug
18

Doctor Who's current "companion" character is Clara Oswald, played by Jenna Coleman. She's become something of a fan favorite over the course of her run, and her presence also provides a nice bridge between Matt Smith's doctor and Peter Capaldi's. Sadly, and despite all of that, it sounds like she won't be sticking around much longer.

Marvel's Doctor Strange Movie Won't be an Origin Story

Aug
18

Superhero movies and origin stories seem to go hand-in-hand, but after literally decades of watching them, the formula is starting to get a little played out. For every Iron Man out there, there's a Green Lantern; and even the Thor and Captain America movies were far surpassed by their eventual sequels. Luckily, it sounds like even Marvel is getting tired of the origin formula, and Doctor Strange might be the movie they choose to finally buck the trend.

One Fan Is Remaking Shenmue in HD All on His Own

Aug
18

No matter how badly fans want it, SEGA seems very uninterested in pursuing a remake of the cult classic Dreamcast game Shenmue. It's not hard to figure out why. After all, the game cost a ridiculous amount of money (estimates vary between $47 and $70 million, in 1999), and although it's developed a healthy fanbase, no amount of Dreamcast game sales in the world were going to make it a financial success for SEGA.
