Diablo 4 Rumors Spreading Ahead of Blizzcon 2016

There’s a lot of buzz surrounding Blizzcon next week, but in order to talk about what I’m most excited for we need to take a trip down memory lane. For those of you young folk who grew up playing World of Warcraft, we’re going to step into a time machine and discuss the early days of PC-RPGs, specifically Diablo. Diablo was a hack-and-slash RPG developed by Blizzard North and released by its parent company, Blizzard Entertainment, on New Year’s Eve in 1996; it...

Cobie Smulders Spills the Beans on Avengers: Inifity War… Sort Of

In perhaps what could be called the ultimate viral click-bait to-date, late-night host Jimmy Kimmel decided to troll the entire internet when he had How I Met Your Mother actress Cobie Smulders on his show a week ago. Yes, as the video below shows, he had S.H.I.E.L.D. agent Maria Hill literally spill an entire can of beans all over an Avengers: Infinity War poster. All rage-comment inducing jokes aside, it got us here at nerdslant wondering how much we really know about the upcoming Marvel... Read More

Seventeen Years of Wolverine: The First Logan Trailer

The first Logan trailer dropped a few days ago, and you might want to grab a box of tissues if you haven’t watched it yet. Jimmy “Logan” Howlett, better known to the masses as Wolverine, is easily one of the most iconic and memorable characters in the Marvel Universe.  Anger issues, problems with authority, and a compelling tortured backstory that grabs you from page one. It’s been seventeen years since the great Hugh Jackman brought this adamantium/vibranium-filled... Read More

Jingle Bell, Jingle BAM! Disney’s New Christmas Entertainment at Hollywood Studios

Disney’s Hollywood Studios theme park’s been undergoing a lot of massive changes of late, many of which have left guests feeling kind of in limbo.  Is the park worth it? Yes. Is there still anything to do? Plenty! One of the more heartbreaking losses in this transformation was the Osborne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights, and you can count me amongst the heartbroken Disney fans. Last December I went there specifically just to see it one last time. It wasn’t hard not to... Read More

Goodbye NX, Hello Nintendo Switch

Today we got our first look at the system Nintendo’s thrown all of its hopes and dreams into: the Nintendo Switch. Yes, gone is the name “NX” with the video game giant deciding to switch things up a little (Editor-in-Chief’s note: We here at nerdslant fully endorse this pun. Please don’t murder our Bemko.). With a miserably low-performing previous console and a slowing handheld market, Nintendo’s really needed a win they can bank on, and their... Read More

The Newest Harry Potter News is Literally Fantastic

Admist mixed reviews for J.K. Rowling’s most recent wizarding work, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child (it’s really a screenplay, but whatevs), Potterheads have turned their squees towards the next film in the franchise: Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. Set to come out November 18th, the film’s based on the fictional textbook from the Harry Potter series. Sounds meta, right? The book appeared in Rowling’s first novel, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s... Read More

Bob Dylan’s Nobel Literature Prize and Context

I’ve been reading a lot of articles about how Dylan’s Nobel win is a travesty, a slight to great literature. At best, some see it as a missed opportunity for a lesser-known writer whose career could have been made by the win.   As much as I feel for Ngugi Wa’Thiongo (or my personal favorite Salman Rushdie), I must disagree. I could write a whole article regarding the idea of the Nobel Prize and quantifying literature; I could write another article about our human desire... Read More
