As a noted life-long fan of Sonic the Hedgehog, I must say that the new animated web series Sonic Mania Adventures nails the tone of the game Sonic Mania. While SEGA is keeping the train named Sonic Mania rolling with upcoming enhanced release of Sonic Mania Plus later this summer, they’re also releasing a five-part series of animated shorts, and episode one is currently out on YouTube. Continue reading “Watch “Sonic Mania Adventures.” Now. Like, RIGHT NOW!!!”
Over at the Sea of Thieves subreddit, where Rare — the game’s developer — have been taking feedback and suggestions from the game’s community, someone asked Rare for a day one patch. While games receiving day one patches is a (sometimes unfortunate) normal thing nowadays to iron out some issues and add features upon a game’s release, this was something VERY different. Reddit user Jefabell wasn’t requesting an update to fix the game, but an actual patch with the number one on it for people’s game avatars to wear. So, Rare took the suggestion and made it a reality. Oh dear God; what have we done? Continue reading “‘Sea of Thieves’ Gets a LITERAL Day One Patch; We See You, Rare…”
Marvel Studios’ Avengers: Infinity War, the nineteenth (HOLY CRAP) film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, is set for release in theaters (or “cinemas” your you fancy folk) on April 27. Two years after the Avengers were torn apart during the events of Captain America: Civil War, Thanos arrives on Earth to collect the Infinity Stones for a gauntlet that will allow him to bend reality to his will, so The Avengers must join … Continue reading The Final “Avengers: Infinity War” Trailer is HERE!

A listing has popped up over at Play-Asia for a Limited Edition Soundtrack for “The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild” which includes a Zelda-themed Playbutton (a portable music player that comes with pre-installed songs), some special edition packaging different from the standard edition, and a Sheikah Slate (straight from the game) slip-on cover for the box everything comes in. Either way, both editions of the soundtrack includes 5 discs, with each CD containing about 36 tracks each. Wooooooooowwwww….

This year will mark the 30th anniversary of the Mega Man (or Rockman) video game series in Japan. To mark this marvelous occasion, Japanese bicycle maker KhodaaBloom recently released a special bike on February 17th. “What so special about this bike?” you may ask. Well, the bike in question is adorned by the color motif, the Japanese box art design and the 8-bit pixellated design of the … Continue reading Presenting the Official Mega Man Bicycle. Just What The World Needed…
Since his days in NXT, there’s never been a moment where I’ve (or in fact, MANY of us) questioned the performance, entertainment and wrestling abilities of Bray Wyatt, but this story also makes him out to be a pretty decent guy. Courtesy of WWE artist Rob Schamberger, we finally have a story to prove that, and it involves an action figure, an autograph, a Walmart, his step-grandmother-in-law (I’ll get to that in a bit), and the Eater of Worlds himself. Continue reading “Bray Wyatt got his Customer Service On by Helping A Stranger In Walmart Find His Action Figure…”
Let’s get the main story out-of-the-way first. Okay; this past weekend at Paradise City Comic Con (in Miami, FL), WWE Hall of Famer Mick Foley saved two people cosplaying as Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles characters Casey Jones and April O’Neil from being attacked by someone cosplaying as The Walking Dead‘s Negan by performing his Mandible Claw submission hold on him during a cosplay wrestling event. Let that sink in for a bit, and I’ll be back with you after the break. Continue reading “OF COURSE, WWE Legend Mick Foley Fought The Walking Dead’s Negan At A Comic Con Last Weekend…”
I suppose that the old adage is true: If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again; some things, however, should just be left alone as God’s way of saying “this is not to be.” For the — say it with me now — THIRD TIME, NBC will be adapting the hit UK Channel 4 show, The IT Crowd. If you think this sounds familiar, it’s because in 2007 NBC (after their success with another BBC hit, The Office) made a pilot staring Joel McHale, Richard Ayoade (from the original show) and Jessica St. Clair, and tried again in 2014 (which went nowhere). I suppose this also proves that even adapting one project into a new project can involve some “turning it off and on again;” Lord knows how many IT tickets I’ve personally encountered when THAT was the solution… Continue reading “NBC is, AGAIN, Trying to Adapt UK Tech Support Sitcom ‘The IT Crowd’…”
…and yes, he’s one, UGLY, motherf***er!
Now that I have that quote out of the way, starting TODAY (December 14th) and running through the beginning of January, the Predator, Hollywood’s most-popular alien hunter from John McTiernan’s 1987 sci-fi film (ya’ know, Predator), will be part of a special FREE downloadable content challenge in Ghost Recon: Wildlands where players — either alone or as a groups of up to four — have to fight to survive the hunter’s aggressive onslaught in order to take him down. Should you and/or your team defeat the Predator, you’ll receive his iconic mask (dreadlocks included) and corresponding heat vision. SCORE! Continue reading “The Predator is coming to “Ghost Recon: Wildlands.” Yes, You Read That Correct…”
Four months ago at the D23 Expo and San Diego Comic-Con, Marvel showed fans — for the first time — some footage from the highly anticipated ‘Avengers’ film. However, back then the footage was not released online, which drove people nuts (myself included), but now, we have the first official trailer.
