There's no shortage of Game of Thrones theme song remixes out there, but if you're itching for some EDM in your Westeros today, we've got just the fix. MetroGnome's take on the iconic theme manages to blend that familiar tune with some killer beats and dialogue from the show. Just wait till the drop at around a minute in and you'll be hooked.
Earlier this month, streaming porn site YouPorn tweeted that they were thinking about sponsoring an esports team, and wanted to know what the community thought of that. At the time, many assumed it was a joke. Apparently YouPorn was pretty serious though, and not have they considered it, they've already gone ahead and drafted a contract.
It's not exactly surprising news, but Valve's big Dota 2 tournament, The International, was a smashing success for everyone involved. The competition, which featured a prize pool of almost $11 million (the largest in esports history by far), attracted over 20 million unique online viewers.
When Christopher Nolan made his first ever trip to Comic-Con last week, many were scratching their heads in confusion. Why now, especially considering he's the guy behind not one, but three of the biggest comic book movies of all time? Well, after watching the Interstellar trailer he brought, it makes perfect sense.
Guardians of the Galaxy arrives tomorrow at midnight! My hype levels are maxed out, especially after seeing Vin Diesel's fantastic Groot during the 17 minute pre-screening earlier this month. To promote the upcoming movie, Diesel made an appearance on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, and discussed how he was asked to record his lines in multiple languages; which basically entailed learning how the rest of the world would say, "I am Groot!"
It hasn't been this easy to love old fashioned, unadorned blues since the Black Keys' heyday: Palace's "Veins" is weeping music for grown-ass men. It's stop-working-and-call-a-buddy-for-a-sad-and-wonderful-drink music. It's the golden glimmer of oldies in a completely relatable modern croon, and it makes the heart slack-jawed and feeble in the best way possible.
Quentin Tarantino loves making movies, but one genre he hasn't even considered touching yet is sci-fi. In fact, he's never really approached genre filmmaking, even his Grindhouse entry was fairly grounded in grindhouse-ey sort of way. Luckily for us though, he's has been batting a few ideas around, and we might just end up seeing what Tarantino plus science fiction looks like.
It's a very special Morning 'Toons, because it's only the third one. And because one of our staff here at 8CN recently got a year older! And I just so happened to find a birthday-themed cartoon, so let us surrender to Internet Fate and deliver this resounding: Happy Birtday.
I've never been to Comic-Con. That being said, I know enough about Comic-Con to never take shrooms in a maelstrom of costumes, coordinated lines, security, and sweaty hystericals; every poster is a portal into an unthinkable parallel dimension; every panel looks like the Spanish Inquisition; every signing table is a Nazi registration booth and where are your papers?? Good heavens, where have you left your papers??? And that's precisely the hell this guy imposed upon himself.
A new trailer for Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare has dropped, and it's intent on reminding you that this game does in fact have a story. It's about how Kevin Spacey uses his wealth and power to organize elaborate games of laser tag. Or something. There were a lot of shooting and explosions and I got distracted.
Test footage for the lost Ryan Reynolds Deadpool movie leaked in the past few days as a grainy, handcam-quality version, but ICYMI, or in case you were wondering what the hell was scribbled on that white sheet of paper before Deadpool decapitated that motorcycle goon, here's a new, squeaky-clean HD version!
On your morning commute, at the coffee place you stop at for a maple bar and a latte, the 40 year-old clerk who's been staring off into space 'til now begins speaking to you. He's barely putting up, and the bile runs from the corners of his mouth as he tells you fifteen years worth of repressed aggression at everything from saran wrap to disgust with subtly hypocritical neighbors. Welcome to Sleaford Mods.
Remember I Hit It With My Axe? That weekly webshow where a a group of pornstars and erotica models played D&D? It made quite the splash back in 2010 for obvious reasons, but less well-known is the mire of misogyny and elitism that the group (especially their outspoken DM Zak S) encountered before the show was ever even released, a story which one of the models involved, Mandy Morbid, took the time to explain in a Tumblr post that should be your #LongReads of the day. If you think 'girl gamers' are an explosive issue, it's nothing compared to 'porn gamers'.
