Howdy music hooligans! You like new stuff? Great - cuz ya stumbled into the right stumble spot - New Music Monday, the most "why I oughta" column at 8CN. Each week record labels and dude's living in their parents' basement release all sorts of new music sorts of stuffs, and this is where it all comes to be judged. I'll tell ya what's good, what's bad, and what's a waste of your time.Thanks for stopping by!
Although Blizzard has always said they have a "highly iterative development process," many fans would claim it's more like a case of everything just taking too freaking long. We’ve seen many games come and go with Blizzard, so we thought we’d mention a few of the Blizzard games that never saw the light of day, in honor of Titan’s recent cancellation.
Today, a free new update for Destiny went live. It's called "The Queen's Wrath," and it features new bounties and gear for Guardians to collect, and will supposedly tie into an upcoming expansion pack (House of Wolves). So what's it all about?
It’s Banned Books Week again! It’s a time when we all reflect back on the absolutely filthy books we’ve read in the past (Hello, Tropic of Cancer!) and go to our local libraries to check out the dirtiest books we can find (please not 50 Shades of Anything). It’s also a time to be aware of and fight back against the small minded concerned citizens who believe that we should never be exposed to things that happen in real life in literature. Unsurprisingly comic books and other literature that one might consider nerdy have not been immune to challenge and censorship.
To begin, I was born with a heart disease known as Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy. In 2010, I was told by my cardiologist that I needed a new heart because my enlarged one was hardening. In the summer of 2012, I was admitted to the hospital for three months. A month after leaving the hospital (October 28), I got my heart transplant. Because of all of this, I may skewed view on various medical shows, but especially with The Red Band Society.
I hate loud Monday mornings more than any other part of the week's most damnable day: nothing louder than running water, nothing faster than fish swimming through gelatin is how I like'em, and if I can't get'em that way, then headphones and Danny Lango's "Side by Side" is the next best thing.
Nintendo has turned 125 years old today, and might I say, it's looking mighty fine for its age. Of course, Nintendo didn't get its start in video games until the 1970s, but that doesn't change the fact that it's really damn strange to think that when the company was founded, the president of the US was Benjamin freaking Harrison. Wow.
I’m beginning to hate Yokai Watch. Even though there is nothing wrong with Yokai Watch. It’s cute. It’s silly. The character looks like an anime-style Justin Beiber, but that’s okay. No, the reason I hate Yokai Watch is because my pride says Pokémon is so much better, something that Japan faithfully proved this past weekend as they waited to pre-order the new title.
With two weeks of Destiny under our belts, most of us are finding ourselves stuck in the 20s, with the slow grind towards better gear inhibiting our ability to queue up for the tougher content. Luckily, there are faster ways to get a new helmet besides playing 50 PvP matches.
Oh, Joss Whedon, will you ever win? Wait…I guess directing the a billion dollar movie about characters you loved as a kid could be considered winning. From that point of view, I really don’t feel bad that Dollhouse was yet another failed Whedon TV project.
Adult Swim is premiering two new shows this week: one is Tim and Eric's Bedtime Stories, and the other is Mr. Pickles. Astoundingly, Tim and Eric have been outdone in terms of evoking disgust and revulsion, and that isn't necessarily a good thing for the new cartoon about a dog that is actually Satan, unbeknownst to his beloved boy companion Tommy.
Welp, if all copies of Interstellar were inexplicably lost, this Imgur user's analysis could reconstruct the film--or at least Endurance, the spacecraft from upcoming sci-fi blockbuster. The album is an eye-buggingly detailed explication of the hard-science principles used in the spacecraft's engineering. Simply put, I can't believe this was cobbled together from JUST TRAILERS, it's like an owner's manual, or a featurette out of an astroengineering textbook . . .
Let’s get one thing out of the way up front. Hyrule Warriors is not The Legend of Zelda. It has none of the exploration, indefinable magic, or innovation of the series from which this title is spun from. That’s not to say we can't love it though. See, while Hyrule Warriors might be a touch repetitive at times, it draws enough lore from a beloved franchise, and the hordes of enemies you'll be slicing through should keep fans of that particular subgenre more than occupied.
