Evil Dead (2013) – Review

I remember letting out a sigh when it was first announced they were going to reboot Evil Dead. The fear of having a beloved film series destroyed suddenly loomed in my mind. Regardless of this I knew that as a fan I would watch the film despite thinking “Is this really necessary?”. After watching the film last night I am glad to say that yes it was.

It’s Shatner vs. Gorn In The New Ad For Star Trek: The Video Game

The new ad for the upcoming Star Trek: The Video Game stars none other than the original Captain Kirk (William Shatner) and an old-school Gorn.  In the ad the two longtime foes sit down for some good old fashioned co-op goodness which then turns into a hilarious recreation of their original battle from the 1960’s tv show.

Bioshock Infinite’s Alternate Reversible Cover Is Beautiful

For those of you who do not remember, a few months ago there was an internet uproar once the official cover art for Bioshock Infinite was revealed. Everyone was throwing a digital fit because they did not approve of the artwork as it gave the impression that the game was just another run-of-the-mill first person shooter. After seeing the cover for myself I agreed that it did not convey the  imaginative world and mysterious atmosphere that Bioshock is normally known for.

The New Deadpool Trailer Is Pretty Insane… But In A Good Way.

The folks at IGN have uploaded a new trailer for the upcoming Deadpool game developed by High Moon Studios. I really had no interest in the game when I first heard of its existence but after watching the trailer I am getting a bit more interested in the game. I really love how they are trying to capture the humor and staples such as “breaking the 4th wall” and all of the crazy over-the-top action that the comic series is known for.  If Highmoon Studios can nail the gameplay then I think it might be safe to say that we have a winner in our hands later this year when it hits the PS3 and Xbox. -M
