Futurama may have ended for good last year (with a fantastic finale no less), but that's not going to be the last time we see the Planet Express gang. On November 9, The Simpsons will feature a crossover with the characters of Futurama; and if that sounds way too insane to actually be happening, we finally have a first look at the episode to prove that it is.
Arrow returns in just a few days, and The CW has revealed the first official images from the premiere episode. "The Calm" will debut on October 8, with subsequent season three episodes airing on Wednesdays at 8 PM ET/PT.
Welcome to The Pull List, a weekly column where we 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. Today we're looking at Footprints, in which . . . well, I think the publisher says it best: "When Bigfoot discovers his brother Yeti brutally murdered, he assembles his old team of P.I.s -- Jersey Devil, Loch Ness Monster, Chupacabra, and Megalodon -- to unravel a conspiracy that spans decades." Now tell me you wouldn't pay $0.99 to read that.
Kevin Smith's next film will premiere this weekend at the Toronto International Film Festival, and considering it's about a guy trying to turn another guy into a walrus, I think we're all pretty curious as to how it will turn out.
If for whatever reason you haven't begun assembling your Marvel movie collection, there's probably no better way to do it than this. The "Phase One" box set (the one in the briefcase) is back in stock on Amazon for $120, or 40% off. That means you'll get Blu-ray and Blu-ray 3D versions of The Avengers, Captain America: The First Avenger, and Thor, as well as Blu-rays of Iron Man, Iron Man 2, and The Incredible Hulk; plus, an exclusive Tesseract replica and a "top secret bonus disc."
Okay, so look, I recognize that that headline seems like a no-brainer, but apparently Zenimax doesn't think so. For those unaware, ZeniMax Media, the company that owns Bethesda Softworks, developers of the Elder Scrolls series, recently laid off an unspecified number of employees attached to The Elder Scrolls Online. However, they claim that they remain committed to the project, and don't seem to think this is an issue.
This week, join Matt, Ryan, and Sean as they discuss such riveting topics as Hearthstone (yes, again), Distance (it's a racing game - check it out!), Hatoful Boyfriend (it's a pigeon dating sim - don't check it out!), and Dungeons and Dragons (the real-life kind, not a video game kind). Also, some other stuff, probably?
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 had an entirely different comic lined up for today's Pull List, but Hawkeye Vs. Deadpool happened to catch my eye (no pun intended) and I have to say I was very pleasantly surprised.
Gamer is quickly becoming a poisonous term. The level of discourse surrounding gamers is positively toxic. Misogynistic attacks on women and their supporters in the industry have come in such a density and intensity that the entire community looks like a pit full of oozes and slimes belching and vomiting all over each other. As games move into the mainstream, and come under types of scrutiny that they’ve rarely been subjected to before, the hardcore who feel that games belong to them exclusively have been noisier and noisier. The gamer used to be able to look around at other people playing games and recognize himself. He was safe and secure and the ooze was warm.
Destiny just might be the most-hyped game this year, and for good reason. It's Bungie's first game since leaving the Halo franchise, and by some reports, it's cost the studio as much as half a billion dollars to develop. That's a whole lot of expectations riding on the shoulders of that team, and only makes the last week of waiting even harder to sit through.
James Gunn wants to see more female characters in the next Guardians movie (but not the one everyone keeps asking for), Stan Lee's original cameo is finally explained, and concept art of Jason Momoa as Drax has been revealed. All that and a little more below.
The Rock has picked a character, Benedict Cumberbatch is in every movie, and Scoot McNairy might be playing a very new take on a very old character. All that and Superman taking the ice bucket challenge below.
Psst! Hey kid! You like new music? Great, because you've stumbled into the perfect luau - New Music Monday, currently the sickest 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!
