If you’ve ever felt the eagerness to hop into the world of any movie from Quentin Tarantino, than you might enjoy this bit of news. A new cinematic-style trailer and release date has been announced for Reservoir Dogs: Bloody Days, which will be out on PC and Steam on May 18 (that’s NEXT month!). The game centers around the bank robbery plot of the classic Quentin Tarantino film and turns it into a top-down shooter, similar to the popular Hotline Miami (one of my favorite games) with the stylized 3D graphics a’la Team Fortress 2, and a unique time-rewind mechanic. There’s currently no final price for the game, however you can get a quick look at the game with a new trailer posted above.
Remember the long-unrivaled Google Earth program being a resource-intensive and clunky desktop or mobile application? Pepperidge Farm remembers, and apparently all of that is officially just a memory. Starting today, Google Earth has been relaunched as a more-widely accessible web application for Google Chrome. Now, ANYONE can access the full Google Earth product, at NO charge, without needing to download and install bulky software or a mobile application (however, a new mobile app for Android has just been released, with versions for iOS and mobile browsers coming at a later date).

“Pretty Boy” Larry Sharpe, taking on Dominic DeNucci at Madison Square Garden in 1980.
If you’re a longtime professional wrestling fan with specific memories of the NWA and early-WCW, it’s incredibly likely that you remember Larry Sharpe. Sharpe had a pretty decent career as a mid-card wrestler, but he’s likely best remembered for running the legendary Monster Factory, which he and Buddy Rogers opened in 1983 in Paulsboro, New Jersey. For the uninitiated, the Monster Factory is notable for produced perhaps more pro wrestling stars than any one training facility before WWE consolidated its developmental promotions to its Performance Center and NXT.

Don’t worry, dudes and dudettes; no spoilers to Mass Effect: Andromeda here. Anyway, the story of Mass Effect: Andromeda involves humanity journeying out to populate new home worlds in the Andromeda Galaxy as part of the “Andromeda Initiative”. The player assumes the role of either Scott or Sara Ryder, an inexperienced military recruit who joins the Initiative and wakes up in Andromeda after a 600+ year voyage. As with the other main Mass Effect games, the player can create a custom character using the features of the game’s robust creation system, which can lead to amazing or hideous character creations. This post — and the following images after the break — celebrates the latter. Enjoy the show. Continue reading Bless You ‘Mass Effect: Andromeda’ for Gifting Us These Frightening Custom Characters…
