Oh man, I'm dying. Someone went and synched the Avengers: Age of Ultron trailer with Celine Dion's My Heart Will Go On, and it works so well, I have to believe it was considered for the actual trailer music at some point.
Alas, it is that time of month again, as dozens of Netflix titles leave us to make room for new ones. As of the start of next month, we'll be losing movies like American Psycho with a pre-Batman Christian Bale, Joss Whedon's Serenity, and Kevin Smith's Red State
Delayed games are pretty commonplace, and can happen for any number of reasons. Sometimes game-breaking bugs crop up late in development, maybe the team is having trouble adjusting to new hardware, or maybe the studio simply wants to change the timing of the release for commercial reasons. In any case, most times it just means we'll have to wait a few months longer to get our hands on the game... unlike these ten games, which left fans waiting for a half a decade or more.

It's 1937, and we're a lonely girl on an island off the coast of Maine. There's no dungeons or spaceships in this week's story, but there is an ocean, a lighthouse and some old people. That's basically the same thing, right?

Everybody loves a good story, and a good story that totally happened to a cousin of your best friend is even better. The internet makes everyone our best friend's cousin, and video games, much like movies before them, give us a set of shared experiences and expectations to draw from and relate to. Haunted video game cartridges, long forgotten games with mysterious plots, children going mad, these are all things that somehow seem like they could have happened.
Robert Swackhamer has been covering all kinds of nerdly pursuits (and beer, which might qualify nowadays) since 2010. At first with Spankwagon, and more recently with 8BitX. He's expanded his coverage to the video game music, chiptune, and nerdcore music scenes, and related festival and convention coverage. His video and photo work ensures that these under-reported scenes get a piece of the coverage that they deserve. If you'd like to help him you can support him on Patreon and make sure that he has the resources to continue catching some of the creative pursuits that so often slip through the cracks.
There are many mysteries in the Avengers: Age of Ultron trailer, but one in particular has been on a lot of fans' minds. It's the scene where all of the Avengers are gathered together in their casual-wear (presumably in Avengers Tower). There's Hawkeye, Tony Stark, Rhodey, Maria Hill, Captain America, Thor, Black Widow, Bruce Banner, and... wait, who the heck is that?
A leak prompted the Avengers: Age of Ultron trailer to officially debut a week early (check it out here if you missed it), and considering it's our first look at footage from the film, there are a lot of interesting images to pore over.
The Age of Ultron trailer was supposed to debut during next week's episode of Agents of SHIELD, but instead, it leaked online earlier today. In response, Marvel reacted in the possible given a bad situation (for them that is), and uploaded an HD version to their YouTube channel.
