Oct
09

Fuutuuure... Virtual popstar Hatsune Miku appeared on the Late Show with The David Letterman last night, performing a song titled "Sharing the World." By that, I assume she's implying she'll share the world with us fleshy humans after her robot army conquers it. Well, we can hope.

Has The Internet Finally Fallen Out Of Love With Nic Cage?

Oct
09

Has the internet abandoned it's king? The danger of royalty has always been that one king is as good as another. The king is dead! Long Live the king! Or perhaps Nicolas Cage has just made a bad career decision by switching from doing the devil's work to shilling for the lord. Yes, Cage, most recently known for reveling in Hell's fiery embrace as Ghost Rider, coming back from Hell in Drive Angry and sending a whole slew of deserving souls to Hell in Rage, has taken a turn at God's side with Left Behind. He might have scored points on high, but at Rotten Tomatoes he's riding at a dismal 2%.

Ladies and gentlemen, the contest for 'anime most hilariously ill-suited to an American rendition' is over: DreamWorks is making a live-action Ghost in the Shell film, and with just the first casting announcement, fans are anticipating the worst Hollywood butcher job to ever happen to animation--keep in mind, these complains are being voiced in a post-Last Airbender world . . .

McDonald's, that ever-present fast food juggernaut, has partnered with one of the most popular video games of all time, World of Warcraft, and Blizzard to transform three burger joints in China into decked out shrines to digital bloodshed.

One-Panel Review: Dash Shaw's 'Doctors'--Beauty in Sterility

Oct
07

Dash Shaw's latest work, Doctors, is my favorite kind of scifi: a gentle tap against reality with a small hammer labeled 'scientific liberties,' and everything breaks wide open. In Doctors, a Dr. Cho and his daughter run a clandestine service retrieving people from their idyllic afterlives, but the good doctor refuses to see what he destroys in the resuscitation. Join me in refracting the whole book from a single panel.

Add A Little Epic To Your Neighborhood By Rendering It As A Tolkien-esque Fantasy Map

Oct
06

That's right, Mapsburgh will render your neighborhood or city as a fantasy map, complete with dragons for airports and creaking sailing vessels for ports. You also have the option of having your section of town rendered as a hand-cut paper map on a colored card stock. For extra fun pull out your fantasty map when walking down to the pub with friends and declare the whole outing a quest. Perhaps for a little extra money you can hide clues and riddles within the map National Treasure style and give it to an adventurous friend. Lord knows I had friends in high school who would have jumped at that little piece of adventure.

Exodus: Gods and Kings Trailer Is Ridley Scott Back to Doing What He Does Best

Oct

A new trailer for Exodus: Gods and Kings has arrived,  highlighting why few can do historical epics quite like Ridley Scott. And in case you were wondering how much the biblical aspect will play into it, the trailer literally spends half of its runtime on the plagues; so a lot, basically. Burning bush confirmed.

This Guy Plays Dark Souls 2 with a Guitar Better than I Can with a Controller

I... I don't even.  This somehow tops the guy who played Counter-Strike with a racing wheel, and that's saying something.

Data's Nightmares Are Even Worse Than You Could Possibly Imagine, The Continuing (Bonkers) Final Season of TNG

Oct
06

Okay, I had to watch this episode three times to verify that it makes approximately no sense. It’s a dream episode, not a good start, and it’s Data’s first nightmare, so it’s an android dream episode, many more elements to deal with here. Can we treat Data’s dreams like human dreams? Should he be affected by nightmares like regular people? Why is he stabbing Troi? The central issue (far fetched even for Star Trek standards) gets solved in the end, so I guess that’s all that really matters in a weekly TV series, but Jesus this thing is a mess. It even leaves a time bomb in the midst of the crew that will never be addressed again.

Super Smash Bros. For 3DS is an audacious creation, bringing all the frenetic energy, heaps of content, and a huge cast of playable fighters the Smash series is known for, all to a handheld device. The masterstroke? Nothing gets lost in translation. This isn't just Smash Bros-lite, it's the real deal, and you can take it with you wherever you go.
