FINALLY, THE ROCK, HAS COME BACK… uh… whoa… wait a minute, what I meant to say is that FINALLY, a game based on the Cartoon Network animated series Steven Universe is going to be released on consoles. Steven Universe: Save the Light, developed by Grumpyface Studios, will launch this summer, Cartoon Network announced. Save the Light is a sequel to 2015’s Attack the Light, an action role-playing game which was well-received by fans and non-fans of the television series.

Because I CERTAINLY AM!!
Adult Swim recently released Pocket Mortys, a new mobile game (Android and iOS) on January 14, and I was pretty stoked about it when it was teased a couple of weeks ago. Simply put, it’s essentially Pokemon with a Rick and Morty skin — and it’s a free game. In case you’re confused and/or not familiar with the show, universes that contain multiple versions of Morty are a common theme in the show, as Morty’s grandfather Rick travels through space and time. Allons-y…er…uh…WUBALUBADUBDUB!! Continue reading Are YOU Enjoying the ‘Rick & Morty’/’Pokemon’ Mash-Up Game, ‘Pocket Mortys’?
It’s time for Episode 118 of WIRed, where Montez McCrary discusses a kit that teaches architectural structures, a 3D printed cars takes a test drive, the fate of the games from the Atari Landfill, and the Nature Boy takes on Uncle Grandpa! Welcome to WIRed, bringing you the nerdy-geekery on architecture, technology, gaming, and pro wrestling. Continue reading Uncle Flair Prints Car Mola – WIRed #118
So, the Hall-of-Famer Ric Flair was unable to introduce the world to “The Artist Formerly Known As” KENTA at the most recent NXT Takeover: Fatal-4-Way event on the awesome WWE Network (in which NXT is the better brand over RAW and SmackDown, one could argue) due to medical reasons which included a medical procedure. Sure it would have been cool to see, but health and safety first, boys and girls. But what is probably just as awesome to see (again, one could argue; but I LIKE IT) was something I didn’t know about, which was Flair popped up on Cartoon Network’s ‘Uncle Grandpa” right as the Takeover pre-show was starting. Continue reading WOOOOOOO!! ‘Nature Boy’ Ric Flair on ‘Uncle Grandpa’
Without a doubt, one of my favorite shows on television is Regular Show, created by J.G. Quintel that airs on Cartoon Network. The program stars the slacker duo of Mordecai, a blue jay, and Rigby, a raccoon, and incorporates of all of Quintel’s favorite childhood pastimes, ranging from the corniest of 1980’s action flicks to gaming on the underrated SEGA Master System (and yes, the Master System is awesome). With references such as these running rampant through nearly every episode of the series, it was only a matter of time before this cartoon series would take the next step into the video game realm.
D3 Publisher has recently announce a partnership with Cartoon Network to publish a series of games based on the series. I personally have a lot of faith in this project due to the fact that D3 recently took care of the distribution for Adventure Time: Hey Ice King! Why’d You Steal Our Garbage?! developed by WayForward.
In an interview with Destructoid, Quintel said that if Regular Show was ever made into a video game, he’d love for it to be in the style of a classic brawler (oh, the 80’s…) or something a little off-kilter such as ToeJam & Earl. Both styles could be implemented very well for a gaming venture of this franchise (because, well, the 80’s…). Plus, going by D3’s history with working with unique franchises like Adventure Time, I’m sure that they’ll find the perfect developer to take on this project.

Just yesterday, [adultswim] posted a lost episode of the classic Cartoon Network animated series “Dexter’s Laboratory” entitled “Rude Removal.” I loved the series as a child and I’m ecstatic to see a (I guess you could say) “new” episode after ALL this time — TEN years, to be precise. Long story short — even though the episode is only 7-and-a-half minutes long — this unaired episode of Dexter’s Lab shows how Dexter’s latest invention could keep Standards & Practices busy with the censor/”bleep” button. Check out the episode after the break. Continue reading Lost Episode of “Dexter’s Laboratory”; Thanks [adultswim]!
