Anyone who's ever attended San Diego Comic-Con (or gawked at the aerial photographs of the lines) will probably tell you that this event has to be the geek community's premier gathering spot. After all, where else can you see the Avengers 2 trailer early? But did you know that in terms of attendance, Comic-Con doesn't even rank in the top five for nerdy events? Or that it's not even the biggest one in the US?
Unlike previous installments, Advanced Warfare's Zombie mode wasn't included in the main game. Instead, you'll need to shell out extra for it via a future DLC update. It's not all bad news though, as the game does include some zombie gameplay, unlockable by playing Exo Survival mode.
At this year's Comikaze expo in Los Angeles, the Nerdist Writer's Panel podcast brought a very special Comic's Edition of their popular web show. Participants for the live recording included Ben Blacker, co-creator of The Thrilling Adventure Hour, Len Wein, creator of iconic comic characters such as Wolverine and Swamp Thing, Adam Beechen, writer for popular shows such as Teen Titans, and Heath Corson, writer of Justice League: War.
For as long as there have been locked doors and hostile robots in video games, it feels like there have been hacking mini-games. Some of them are good, some of them are terrible, and most of them make absolutely no sense.
Now that Halloween is over with, expect your TV line-up to go full-on Christmas any day now. Instead of claymation elves and red-nosed reindeer though, Lifetime has chosen to go in a slightly different direction; one that involves a bit more grump,
Today we return from our 100th anniversary hiatus to tell you all about some funky artists who gained a lot of weight after falling from popularity. You can read that as some kind of social commentary, but we assure you we're just terrible people.

Things really take a weird turn in this installment of the Phoebe story. We discover an age-old battle of good versus evil, and encounter multiple deadly foes. Will this story just go on for eternity, or will we finally embrace death?
Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare launched last night, and minor spoiler, the section with the North Koreans was not a friendly tea party. For some reason, and despite the fact that no game to date has really justified how Best Korea suddenly got competent enough to take on some of the world's most sophisticated militaries, military shooters just keep insisting on using those neighbors to the north as bad guys.
Comikaze Expo went down in LA this past weekend, and thousands of awesome cosplayers gathered to show off what they've been working on. Check out 20 of our favorite costumes we saw in the past few days below!
Stan Lee's Comikaze Expo, sponsored by Hot Topic. Now, I am no stranger to comic based conventions. After living in California for 6 years, I have attended Wonder Con, Anime Expo, and Comic Con and thought I saw it all. And I was quickly proven wrong. While it does have what is now considered the norm for comic conventions – diverse range of cosplayers, panels that have absolutely nothing to do with comic books, big names signing autographs for a hefty price – this one did have its little (mostly positive!) quirks.
I've attended Comikaze Expo for three years now, and every time I go, I can barely recognize the convention from the previous year’s. From the layout to the booths to the programming, every year Comikaze has continued to change and evolve in huge ways. That's great news to me, because it shows that this event is willing to update itself to meet the needs of its attendees; and given how close it is to me, it's quickly becoming one of my favorite conventions to attend.
People send us songs. We pass them on to you. Because we love you. Enjoy!
Sporting "delicate, airy, gossamer type vocals [that] hold glimmers of Cocteau Twins", and "cinenmatic soundscapes with elements of Pink Floyd", Canadian / Ukranian duo Ummagma are poised to release Kiev - The Remixes, an album of remixes featuring artists like Sounds of Sputnik, A Copycat, and Brazil's Mind Moves. The album revolves around the Ummagma's captivating signature song "Kiev", which is inspired by the Ukranian city that was the scene of so much violence during last year's bloody Ukranian Revolution. A mesmerizing mix of guazy, atmospheric sounds, trembling beats, and fragile vocals, "Kiev" is a near perfect song that seduces the listener in and out of consciousness. Trust me, you'll dig it.
