Return to Arkham on Indefinite Hold

In what is sure to be a sad day for fans of the Rocksteady Arkham games, WB  Games has officially announced that Return to Arkham, which was announced this May, is now on indefinite hold.  While this doesn’t mean the project is scrapped, it certainly is disheartening to hear there is no actual time table for completion.  According to WB Games Staffer Steve Grayson (OMG perfect last name for this job!), “After reviewing the progress of the project, the team at WB Games has decided to...

Everything We Know About Destiny’s Rise of Iron DLC

While countless leaks spoiled most of the surprises in the lead-up to the big announcement, Bungie finally unveiled the Rise of Iron DLC for Destiny a little over a week ago at E3 to mass fanfare. Rise of Iron will be the first and more than likely last major DLC release since The Taken King launched last September. As such, it’s going to be filled with tons of new content for players to explore. Bungie promised us a bevy of epic newness, and they’ve succeeded! In addition to... Read More

Penny Dreadful, S3 E7 – “Ebb Tide” Review

Warning: The following review contains spoilers from this week’s episode of Penny Dreadful. “Ebb Tide” opens with Lily (Billie Piper) at a graveyard, paying respect to a woman mourning the loss of her child–this token of gratitude only met with a declaration of an impending war. She then lays a wreath down on the grave and begins to cry, “Sara Croft,” presumably her own child. We then find Vanessa (Eva Green), laying in the museum post her romance with Dracula... Read More

CW Casts Superman: Makes Wrong Choice

  So the news broke yesterday that the CW  had found there new Superman.  That honor will go to Teen Wolf star Tyler Hoechlin.  I will say it again, Tyler Hoechlin will be Superman.  I had to check multiple sources to make sure I was reading that correctly. I was. It is real. The CW has made a huge mistake and missed a big opportunity. There are plenty of people who wanted to see a fresh take on Superman, and I do not necessarily think that is a bad thing.  However, This is... Read More

James Wan’s The Conjuring 2 Sets a New Bar for Paranormal Horror Films

Warning: The following review contains some spoilers for The Conjuring 2. In the horror film realm there are, at this point, several relatively universal truths, the majority of which are best laid out in Wes Craven’s classic, Scream. If you have sex, you’re going to die. Should you hear a noise, never go inspect it by yourself. If you’re a black character, you probably aren’t going to make it to the end (with the exception of the House on the Haunted Hill remake, a... Read More

A Nintendo Direct news release on November 12, 2015 announced that the Pokémon games that started it all were to be released on the Virtual Console in recognition of the franchise’s upcoming 20th anniversary on February 27, 2016.  Pokémon Red Version, Blue Version, and Yellow Version, collectively known as Generation 1 , were a welcome nostalgic way to bring the classic games into the hands of modern players, some of whom may not have even been born prior to when they first came...

Game of Thrones, S6 E8 – “No One” Review: How to Bury the Lead

At last, we again have Peter Dinklage, The Most Famous Dwarf in the World, in the credits! But much like last week, this week’s Game of Thrones episode had that mixed bag feeling, but this time the mix was more substantial, with the plot threads making progress toward a resting spot for next week’s Battle of the Bastards. I said progress, but not resolution; Thrones episodes tend to end where they should, for lack of a better phrase. For an arc show, it’s not cruel about... Read More

Rickstaverse! Interdimensional Cable Adventures

Hello Nerdslanters! Did you know they have games on Instagram? More importantly, did you know Rick and Morty have a game on Instagram? I know you’ve been craving more Rick since the end of Season 2, when those Galatic Federation bag munchers incarcerated our favorite mad scientist. Now you can dive back into the mad cap world Dan Harmon and Justin Roiland have given us. I just spent 20 minutes having a tour of a real life plumbus factory (I always wondered how those were made).... Read More
