Anyone who grew up with the Pokemon craze like I did will have fond memories of collecting and trading Pokemon cards as a kid. Did you know that there was an actual game behind those cards, though? It's true! And now that game is coming to the iPad!
The Expendables series has managed to carve out a niche for itself amongst action-enthusiasts for its non-stop parade of action movie icons, B-movie badasses, and about as many cameos as one can possibly shove into an hour-and-a-half. None of the films so far have been particularly... graceful in their execution, but there's always been plenty of solid action featuring some of the biggest names in the genre to make up for it. Does the third film live up to that, or is the gimmick finally wearing thin?
For thsoe familiar with the works of Hideo Kojima, the circumstances surrounding the announcement of the latest Silent Hill game, which Kojima will helm in association with Guillermo Del Toro, should come as no surprise. For those less familiar with the pure insanity of Kojima, let me explain to you exactly what's happening and why you should be excited.
After taking some time off and talking to a respected elder in my community, I feel that I can finally discuss How I Met Your Mother without getting angry over the series finale that LITERALLY SPIT IN THE FACE OF ALL THE FANS…whoa. Sorry about that. Anyway, it was still a pretty good show.
We're in a bit of a platformer renaissance right now. Well, maybe renaissance isn't the right word. Under an avalanche of pixel art and chiptune music, we're getting plenty of new games, so many that they're all starting to blend together. That's why it's a breath of fresh air when a game, especially a platformer, can catch your eye with just a glance.
Whether piracy causes real economic damage is still up for debate. What isn't though is the fact that quite a few Americans pirate stuff. In the past 40 days, over a million people have torrented or pirated something: movies, TV shows, music, and even games. In an effort to understand how geographic areas affect downloading habits, a real estate blog tracked which games were the most in each state. Spoiler, it's probably Watch_Dogs; unless you live in Oklahome. Those guys really love Naruto.
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. This week we'll be taking a look at the first issue of Godzilla: Cataclysm, a big, action-filled, new series from IDW.
Faces of Skyrim presents some stunning portraiture from the most recent Elder Scrolls game (natch the only partially released online version). These are characters captured in all kinds of moments. They're preparing to attack or contemplating their next move. They're speckled in blood and standing victorious or sprayed with freckles and on the verge of telling us something very important.
Join our intrepid heroes this week as they discuss the joys of revisiting Mass Effect 3 and the tenants of game design in horror games. Careful, this episode may prove to be 2spooky4u. Listen at your own risk.
When the script for Quentin Tarantino's next film, a western titled The Hateful Eight, leaked onto the internet, the director decided it wasn't worth filming anymore. Last month however, he apparently changed his mind, and the project is heading into production early next year, with a 2015 release date in mind. Despite the fact that it's only recently become a thing again, and no footage for it has been shot, the movie is still getting a teaser trailer that could drop as early as next week.
Man, Warner Bros. really wants this Aquaman movie to happen. Despite the fact that the character has (unfairly) become something of a pop culture laughing stock over the past few years, the studio is reportedly aggressively moving forward with the project, going as far as hiring two writers to tackle the script.
It still feels hard to believe, but that Power Rangers movie is actually happening. Lionsgate has officially announced a release date for the project, and it's joining a packed month that includes films like Independence Day 2, Angry Birds, and even a Marvel movie.
