There's a Doctor Who-Themed Restaurant in New York

Aug
21

The Pandorica has opened, and in this instance, that's pretty awesome. That's because it's the name of a new restaurant in Beacon, New York that features an entire Doctor Who theme, complete with their own version of fish fingers and custard.

Telltale's Walking Dead: Season Two Gets One Final (Amazing) Trailer

Aug
21

The Walking Dead: Season Two comes to an end next week, and Telltale has released a pretty special trailer to commemorate things. It starts with about two and a half minutes recapping Clementine's journey so far, through seasons one and two (so basically two and a half minutes of heartbreak), then moves into something we've never seen before...

Watch a Supercut of Every Single Quentin Tarantino Movie Death

Aug
21

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.

Guardians of the Galaxy Retakes the #1 Spot at the US Box Office (Take That Ninja Turtles)

Aug
21

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.

Ughh, Movie Theaters in China Are Now Encouraging Text Messaging

Aug
21

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.

Aug

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.

The Pull List: Grant Morrison's The Multiversity Brings the Insanity

Aug
20

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.

New Gotham Trailer Has Plenty of Familiar Faces

Aug
20

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.

Guardians of the Galaxy Concept Art Show off Some Crazy Alternate Character Designs

Aug
20

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.

Aug
20

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.

Japan's Bafflingly Polite Anti-Piracy Campaign Explained In Video

Aug
20

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. 

Fish Should Play Every Video Game!

Aug
19

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.
