As of April 3, 2013, Disney closed down LucasArts and assumed development of any Lucasfilm properties. A look at the legacy left behind by the studio and its 30-year legacy. As former LucasArts composer Lesse Harlin put it this past Friday, “LucasArts died today. It was 30 years old.” A [...]
Before I get all down in the dumps about this, let me say first – I liked this movie. Are you a die hard fan of the G.I. Joe franchise and/or Cobra Command? Then you will like G.I. Joe: Retaliation - AND you will like this movie better than G.I. Joe: Rise [...]
Gears of War: Judgment is set to hit shelves in just a few hours and fans of the Mass Effect franchise might be surprised to see a very familiar name in the opening credits. Ali Hillis, the voice of Mass Effect’s Dr. Liara T’Soni will be strapping on some COG armor to [...]
Most directors hot off the success of one of the highest grossing films of all time would no doubt try and cash in on all the hype by working on another massive action film. Then again, most directors aren’t Joss Whedon. Much Ado About Nothing, a Shakespearean adaptation, recently screened this weekend during Austin’s SXSW everything festival, and we’ve been hearing some great things
It’s risky to attempt a prequel of a beloved story successfully without disappointing generations of cult followers. I have to admit, however, I’m usually a fan of these- being able to separate an otherwise interesting concept from an original masterpiece (Prometheus, Star Wars I-III, X-Men:First Class, The Hobbit, and Star [...]
Amazon is having a huge sale on all things Whedon today for the goldbox. I won’t waste too much time since all you need is some sweet link action. Whedon Fire(fly) Sale!
With the addition of Battle.net and authenticators, one would think that the age of mass password hacks would be over, sadly they are not. With virtual gold that’s often times worth more than some actual real world currencies, hacking a World of Warcraft or Diablo account can be worth a lot of REAL money. For instance in China, the average person is currently making around 665 Yuans a month or $104 U.S. (source) . This would mean that the theft of $100,000 WOW gold could net a Blizzard account pirate a month’s pay in China (as the average exchange rate is $10 for 10,000 WOW gold). If no market existed, the hacking wouldn’t be half as bad as it is today
Every once in a while our good friend aXL99 creates some of her incredible nerd-infused art live for all to see. For those that aren’t aware, aXL99 was featured heavily in this summer’s Bioware art contest and was recently Bioware’s featured fan artist (shes that good).
After multiple rounds of sales and many people interested (including Google, Microsoft and more), Hulu announced on their blog yesterday that they are canceling the sale entirely. They did not find an offer that they felt suited their earning potential, so they are pulling the plug. To be honest I’m not sure [...]
People still think the game is just for “nerds” and social misfits. I would argue that D&D is for anyone that likes adventure, laughing with friends, and imagination. The people I play with are teachers, pilots, doctors, chefs and animal trainers. No matter who you are or where you are in life Dungeons and Dragons will always be around for you to roll some dice and have a damn good time. Allie Goertz pretty much sums up how we all feel about the mother of all RPGs… A great place to just get away… She, as well as this video, are about to blow up… you’ll see.
