In 'Velocity 2X,' new-school speed meets old-school charm

5 hours ago

“Just one more level,” I told myself more than a handful of times as I played Velocity 2X. The game took a few levels to grab me, but within minutes of playing, I was hooked.

Before players are inundated with a bunch of big-budget action games and shooters—Destiny releases just one week from now­— today, developer Futurlab managed to slip in their space shooter Velocity 2X. It may not be able to compete with the bombast of releases coming in the next few months, but I likely won’t enjoy such a wholly crafted and purely fun experience this fall as Velocity 2X. »

Loki fans, rejoice: Here's an entire movie about him

5 hours ago

Few comic book characters have received a bigger boost from a movie adaptation than Loki, Son of Odin. Before 2011’s Thor, Loki was generally rendered as a malicious grinning creep, a “trickster” bad guy with less substance than a season-3 Adam West Batman villain.

There were occasional exceptions–but nothing that ever matched the geekosphere-spanning depth charge of Tom Hiddleston’s scene-stealing performance. Hiddleston gave Loki an air of dreamy-tragic cool–he’s Asgard’s rebel without a cause–and then Avengers gave Hiddleston a greatest-hits selection of villainous one-liners. The character was practically the co-lead in Thor: The Dark World »

Warner Bros. registers four superhero-movie domain names: Is this DC Phase 2?

6 hours ago

Warner Bros’ explicit attempt to conjure up their own superhero-movie mega-franchise has led to a summer of tantalizing hints and possible red herrings. Is Dwayne Johnson playing Shazam…or is he playing Shazam’s nemesis? Will the Aquaman movie feel 300-y or Castle-ish? If Guillermo Del Toro talks about a movie, does that mean it’s definitely happening or definitely not happening?

Possible clarity about WB’s DC plans comes from the news, initially reported by TechTimes, that the studio has registered four key domain names that auger big things for some major DC characters. The domains are:

Watch the tiniest football player ever in this 'Madden' glitch

7 hours ago

Madden 15 has only been out for a week, but already it’s produced some of the funniest game glitches players have seen in a while. First, catapulted a Minnesota Viking into the sky, and now it has a NFL player the size of a doll.

For some users, Cleveland Browns rookie linebacker Christian Kirksey measures 1 foot 2.  Many players recorded the dwarf-sized Kirksey in action —he also appeared as a player for the Tennessee Titans thanks to a pre-season All Stars challenge the game was running.

Even Kirksey himself discovered the glitch, and had an amused response on Twitter.

Watch the super creepy trailer for 'Resident Evil Revelations 2'

8 hours ago

While they await news about Resident Evil 7, fans of Capcom’s franchise can keep themselves entertained with the Resident Evil Revelations 2. 

During a Sony event in Japan anticipation of the Tokyo Game Show later this month, Capcom producer Masachika Kawata revealed that Revelations 2 is currently in development, and shared a live-action teaser trailer for the game.

Little is known about the game’s plot or gameplay changes, though it will be set in a new time period and setting rather than revisit its predecessor’s locale. The first Revelations was set between the events of Resident Evil 4 and Resident Evil »

'Super Meat Boy Forever' announced for phones, tablets

11 hours ago

Super Meat Boy has been driving fans of platformers crazy since 2010, when the game’s fun but tough gameplay and cute protagonist debuted on the Xbox 360. The game, which was also featured in the documentary Indie Game: The Movie, has since been released on a number of platforms but has remained noticeably absent from phones and tablets. The game’s developer, Team Meat, revealed a solution to this problem during Pax Prime with the reveal of Super Meat Boy Forever.

In an announcement post on the team’s website, developer Edmund McMillen explained that Forever will not be a simple »

'Firewatch' trailer presents a somber, tense, and lonely mystery

11 hours ago

It sounds almost like a novel: In the wilderness of Wyoming, a man named Henry takes a job as a fire lookout to get away from a mess of a personal life. But then something strange draws him from his lookout tower and into the woods, with only one person on the other end of a radio tethering him to the rest of the world.

That’s the premise behind upcoming video game Firewatch, which was publicly shown off for the first time at last weekend’s Pax Prime convention in Seattle. Developed by Campo Santo, a studio composed of »

Saints Row franchise continues with 'Gat Out of Hell'

11 hours ago

As the Grand Theft Auto franchise went further down the road of depicting a real open-world setting as accurately as possible, the Saints Row series veered in a near opposite direction. The latest entry in the series, Saints Row IV, gave players control of a superpowered President of the United States as he or she fought their way out of a simulated city controlled by aliens. (It’s as delightfully crazy as it sounds.) The series’ insanity and irreverence know no bounds, and it appears the titular Saints will push the limits all the way to the underworld in a »

Robin Williams' daughter Zelda returns to Twitter

13 hours ago

Robin Williams’ daughter Zelda was bullied on social media after her father’s death, causing the 25-year-old to suspend her Twitter and Instagram accounts. “Deleting this from my devices for a good long time, maybe forever,” Zelda posted on Twitter Aug. 13. Nearly three weeks later, she’s back.

Zelda posted a simple tweet Monday, her first since Aug. 13, reading “Thank you.” In that tweet, she also linked to a Tumblr post containing a quote from actor Harvey Fierstein: “Never be bullied into silence. Never allow yourself to be made a victim. Accept no ones definition of your life; define yourself. »

Chris Harrison blogs 'Bachelor in Paradise' episode 6

14 hours ago

Another week, another amazing series of events in beautiful Mexico. Paradise has really lived up to its name, but not everyone is treating it as such so far. Sarah may have perfectly summed up Bachelor in Paradise for some of the guys on the show this week: sun, drinks, and hooking up with chicks. The good news is that there are still plenty of men and women here for more legitimate, sincere reasons. Cody in one of those sincere men who is looking for love and apparently he’s found it. He told Michelle he’s in love with her »

EW's 'Walking Dead' cover photographer reveals how to kill a zombie

16 hours ago

How do you kill a zombie? If you were to break it down, shot-by-shot, what would it look like? Dylan Coulter photographed The Walking Dead’s Andrew Lincoln, Norman Reedus, Danai Gurira, Steven Yeun, and Lauren Cohan on July 13 in Atlanta for Entertainment Weekly. Using multiple-exposure, Coulter answered those questions.

He began by taking separate photographs at separate exposures. In post-production, he put them together, overlapping images very selectively. There, he toyed with transparency, lightness, and darkness, emphasizing and de-emphasizing layers at his discretion. Coulter’s photographs resulted in four separate covers for each character, with Yeun and Cohan sharing a cover. »

100 things that apparently happened, as told by 'The Unauthorized Saved by the Bell Story'

1 September 2014 10:10 PM, PDT

On Monday, September 1, Lifetime ushered in a new generation of unauthorized biopics with its behind the scenes look at what really happened on the 1990s hit Saved by the Bell. The cast has largely disavowed themselves from the project and/or Dustin Diamond’s scandalous memoir Behind the Bell, and considering that the movie is based on that biography, it’s safe to say most of the things that happened in this movie didn’t really happen that way at all.

But still, we watch. We learn. We cringe. We tweet.
