The Legend of Zelda games, despite looking and feeling like they are designed for children, have rarely focused on being easy or simple. Occasionally puzzles require that bizarre type of logic that prevails in adventure games or enemies require esoteric attack combos to kill. This means that Link often faces a fiendish number of ways to die, and a slightly morbid YouTube fan, MasterofHyrule, has put 104 of them together in this brutal super cut.
I don't know about you, but I remember Chief O'Brien as a bigger part of TNG than he actually is. He isn't even the consistent man behind the transporter controls. I really enjoy Colm Meany. I think he's a good actor who brings a certain edge to essentially agreeable characters like Miles. It makes his occasional moral stands both more forceful and fraught. In any case, I remembered a good number of episodes that featured him, and expected there to be a ton more. Even in the episodes he is in, for quite a few he's just standing behind the controls as some ambassador beams on. He really doesn't get his time in the spotlight until DS9 rolls around. I guess Jon Adams also noticed that he wasn't featured all that often and decided to fill in the gaps.
Robert Downey Jr.'s Tony Stark more or less birthed the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and the trilogy of Iron Man films are some of the most successful movies ever made. Despite all that though (and the fact that the character will be showing up in Avengers: Age of Ultron), it sounds like Marvel has very little interest in pursuing another Iron Man movie.
Guardians of the Galaxy had no shortage of scenic vistas, but none were featured quite as prominently as Xandar, the home planet of the Nova Corp. Given that fact, it's no surprise that the planet went through a heft amount of visual development before the cameras (and visual effects artists) started rolling.
Last week, a documentary about World War I was released in Russia, and a segment focusing on Allied propaganda featured a unintentional cameo by Team Fortress 2's Soldier (eating a baby no less). I'm not sure if this reflects really poor fact-checking on the filmmakers' parts, or a really low opinion of the United States in Russia. Probably both.
Psst! Hey kid! You like new music? Great, because you've stumbled into the perfect luau - New Music Monday, currently the most "Pull de String!" column on 8CN. Each week oodles of new music type things get unleashed by greedy record labels and this is where they all come 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!
Twitch.TV recently released a report regarding the top 20 most popular games on the service for the month of August. The month saw some interesting changes for Twitch, including being purchased by Amazon, and more relevantly some titles being replaced by others in terms of popularity. Read on for the full list.
Wikipedia is the largest repository of human knowledge ever accumulated. It has branches in dozens of languages. It is both the savior and the bane of every college student. All of the answers are there, but your professor won’t let you use them because Wikipedia is a den of scum and villainy. It’s curated by non-experts and vandals with no integrity, right? Nope. It’s a giant library that’s mostly (okay, maybe not mostly) run by robots!
Who was Spartacus? Well, that’s just it; no one really knows who Spartacus was. We know he existed, we know he led a slave rebellion, and we know he was the subject of that one movie in 1960. This presents an interesting opportunity wherein a well known historical figure is basically a blank canvas for storytelling. And nudity. Lots of nudity.
Apparently, over 50% of comics Kickstarters succeed, and it's not hard to see why: far from being crummy marker-and-zine affairs, these are legitimate gems that can easily compete with big-publisher favorites in terms of innovative storytelling and beautiful illustrations. They just need a leg-up, some TLC from good kind folks like you! So here's a handful of titles that I'd love to see in my neighborhood comic book store.
The Sims 4 is finally here, and unsurprisingly given its recent track record, EA has done a less than perfect job of following up one of the most successful game franchises in history. Heres a few of the things they got wrong and what they can do to fix them.
ESPN may have aired Dota 2's $10 million International championship, but don't expect the network to be embracing the esports anytime soon. ESPN president John Skipper recently downplayed Amazon's $970 million acquisition of Twitch in an interview, stating that his network was more interested in "real sports." Ouch.
Thanks science, now I can't even enjoy watching Nic Cage and Sean Connery chew some scenery in The Rock without thinking about my cholesterol. According to a new research study, watching a Michael Bay movie led study participants to eat twice as much, as opposed to when watching what could be considered the exact opposite, the PBS talk show Charlie Rose.
