San Diego Comic Con 2013 Comic Movie Update

Well, SDCC has been interesting this year, not so much in big videogame announcments, but in actual COMIC BOOK related issues.  Here are a few of the comic movies that caught my attention. (More to come later.)

1.  Superman and Batman will finally be in a movie together.  The announced movie has only been hinted at in regards to story (with a quote from Dark Knight Returns to show inspiration) and a single image of the bat symbol combined with Superman's "S" in the middle.  Honestly it reminds me very much of the Batman Superman comic title that was going on for the past few years.  SDCC Logo Reveal

2.  Avengers 2 officially titled "Avengers: Age of Ultron" with a Summer 2015 release date.

3.  X-Men : Days of Future Past has taken a new spin on a classic tale (of the same name) for better and possibly worse.  It was revealed that Logan (Wolverine) will be the one sent into the past to change the future instead of the orginal Kity Pryde going back to her younger self.  So far it has been shown that the movie will take place in the past, present, and the future so the transitions should be quite interesting.Bishop (X-Men Days of Future Past)

Many characters have been talked about, but Professor Xavier, Magneto, Colossus, and Bishop have been shown at the panel as well.  Most intersting, and puzzling on their final complete look, has been the reveal of the Sentinels themselves.  Or rather a bust of a Sentinel head that we don't know if it is in scale or not, a poster done up showing an army, another poster showing a Sentinel fist, and finally a black outline hinting at the final body shape.  The new design, at least from what I can tell, should work great for the movie but it does differ greatly from the Sentinel head shown quickly in X-Men 3: The Last Stand.

Surprise! EARTHBOUND

Well, today is the day many (rabbid) fans have been waiting for.  In a surprise ending to their "Mini Direct" earlier, Nintendo announced that the often requested EarthBound is finally available on the Wii U Virtual Console.  It's a great RPG that I recommend people give a go.  It is $10 and is available now. 

Enjoy!

The Blacksmith You SHOULD Be Finding in Games is REAL!

Ok, N5omniac pointed this guy out awhile back and sadly it has taken me a bit to get the message out, but for every time you have had to find a blacksmith in a videogame...it should have been this man.  

He MADE this!

As his opening in the videos states, Tony Swatton has been a blacksmith armorer for more than 30 years and has made weapons and items for over 200 movies.  Now he is taking his business, Blacksmith Sword And Stone, and doing what we have all wanted to do...he's making the weapons and armor we love from movies, cartoons, games, and more.  

The list of weapons they have done so far is impressive, but he is always adding more.  So far I have seen Fin's Golden Sword from Adventure Time, Captain America's Shield, Wolverine's Claws, an axe from Skyrim, the Diamond Sword from Minecraft, and so much more.  Ironically though with the video series being titled "Man At Arms"...he hasn't done anything of Man-At-Arms from He-Man.  Oh well, he has done the Sword of Power from that series at least!  Check out some videos after the break.

Where We're Going We Don't Need Rope! (Cut the Rope: Time Travel)

So the lovely little green candy eating machine known to the world as Om Nom is coming back in "Cut the Rope: Time Travel", the sequel to the 2011 release "Cut the Rope: Experiments".

It looks like Om Nom will be going thru time as he tries to be fed all of the candy his little green "whatever-shape-that-is" body can hold.  It will be coming to iOS and Android soon.

If your not familiar with Om Nom or the Cut the Rope games, they are basically physics based puzzles that revolve around getting candy either to Om Nom's waiting mouth, or to move Om Nom himself (still via the physics) to the candy.  A simple idea that proves incredibly addictive and suprisingly deep with its gameplay.  I highly recommend you give it a while.  I know I will be looking forward to whatever this new itteration brings to the table.  

It looks to be as much fun as the last two games in the series, but tell us what you think of it in the comments below!

Review: Bioshock Infinite (Xbox360)

Gaming today, especially on the Xbox360, has been a flood of first person shooters that have aimed for "realistic" military themes that focus on multiplayer while happening to remember they have a single player portion in there somewhere.   

Bioshock Infinite is not of this kind of game and I couldn't be happier for it.

Bioshock Infinite - Opening and First Area (Xbox 360) - Jeremy's Gameplay

Decided to load up the beginning section of Bioshock Infinite that came out this week.  So far the game was been a beauty to play with some interesting twists already.  I am pretty damn surprised by the content they decided to cover in regards to religion and racism, so be warned at what you will be seeing.

We Need You!

I'll be straight and to the point. What is it that you guys would like to see here? And we're talking specific topics on our podcasts, articles, or maybe even making our own fun videos. I know we've thrown ideas back and forth, bouncing ideas off each other, but we also would like to reach out to you guys first. Our audience.
 
You see, our plan isn't to be like all of the other gaming sites that share a lot of the main information. Yet our drive comes from more participation and feedback from you. We really enjoy putting up our work for you guys, and while we have been lacking in content lately, quite a bit of it stems from a lack of active users. This is why we are reaching out to you. Is our current content not tough e'nuff? Does our website need a better layout?
 
Feedback helps us get better! Support us by simply commenting on the articles, participating for free games when we have our podcasts, and showing this place to a friend!
 
Your friendly neighborhood PC Lead Writer,
Arthur Heinrich

Free Game Friday 2013!

I'd like to start us off this year with something relatively new with a new website. The site itself is about this SCP (Secure Contain Protect) organization that attempts to locate and contain these "artifacts" which would most likely deal harm, but in some cases do not. In all cases, these things or even beings have otherworldly powers and there are thousands of them. Some of them are so powerful that they are not even able to be contained at all.
