Last week, rumors circulated that Disney had attached the first teaser for Star Wars: The Force Awakens to Peter Jackson's final Hobbit movie. That idea made a lot of sense, until earlier today when sources indicated that this was not the case, and that the studio has much bigger plans for the trailer's debut.
Like any year, 2014 saw its share of Call of Duty's and Assassin's Creed's and such; but on the fringes of all that AAA nonsense were a couple of games that went for something a little bit... stranger.
Games get canceled all the time, but rarely do we ever hear very much about them. Usually, they're canned well before the public is aware of their existence, with the studios quietly pushing the project under the rug (or recycling the work into new games entirely). These games however, failed pretty spectacularly.
It's been just a hair over a year since the PlayStation 4 debuted in 2013, and with about 12 months of games behind us now, we can finally get a pretty good look at what some of the console's top titles are.
We've gotten our first taste of the Halo 5: Guardians multiplayer beta, and it's likely going to prove more than a little bit controversial among the diehard fanbase. That being said, if you can get over the fact that this certainly isn't a return to Halo 2, there's a lot to love in Guardians, despite (and in some ways, because of) its tendency to stray from the Halo formula.
Despite having one of the most rich, vibrant, and popular fantasy worlds out there, the setting of Game of Thrones has been surprisingly lacking in the video game scene. If you're really itching to visit a digital Westeros though, there are a few options.
Game of Thrones is all about family, as weird as that sounds, and given just how many characters there are in the story, it can be a challenge to remember how they're all related (and that's before all of the incest).
In what might be one of the year's most creative and eye-catching cosplay projects, photographer Sacha Goldberger has transported some of pop culture's most recognizable characters to the Renaissance. These aren't just costumes either, the photos are perfectly staged to capture the look and feel of paintings from that era.
It isn't surprising that every major studio wants their own Avengers franchise. After all, Marvel is the king of the box office at the moment, and no matter how crazy of an idea they come up with, it still makes oodles of money. So when the opportunity came up for Universal to reboot some of its classic monster movies, someone at that meeting looked up from a massive mound of cocaine and whispered... why not us?
