Xcom 2 announced, first trailer released

13 hours ago

Strategy hit Xcom: Enemy Unknown is getting a sequel this November - and it's going to be a PC exclusive. Here's the first trailer...

Firaxis' turn-based Xcom: Enemy Unknown brought Julian Gollop's classic strategy game into the 21st century with style, and the resulting experience, released in 2012, was rightly acclaimed.

Three years on, and Xcom 2 has been announced - incredibly, in this age of constant leaks, Fireaxis managed to develop the thing without news of it being splashed all over games websites everywhere.

Set after the events of the previous game, Xcom 2 will see a group of resistance fighters covertly retaliating against the alien occupiers and the government they've installed, reportedly called the Advent.

According to IGN, who've broken the news of Xcom 2's release, the game will include "new soldier classes, new aliens, stealth-infused tactics, procedurally generated maps, and more." You can get an idea of what some »

Orphan Black season 3 episode 7 review: Community Of Dreadful Fear And Hate

14 hours ago

This review contains spoilers.

3.7 Community Of Dreadful Fear And Hate

In this week's Orphan Black, Alison gets her shining moment, Scott proves himself, and Delphine is so far past the line that the line has become a dot in the distance for her.

This week's episode is mostly about Alison, which is a welcome change after so long for her in the backseat. Faced with completing a drug deal on the same day that she's also set to buy Bubbles and make an important speech for the upcoming election, she's torn in three directions at once. Of course, this being Orphan Black, there's a handy clone solution for that, so Cosima awkwardly steps in to serve as her reluctant body double in exchange for a cup of Alison's urine. Unfortunately, Alison's ex-boyfriend/current supplier Jason chooses this event of all places to kiss Alison (really Cosima) full on the mouth, »

Game Of Thrones season 5 episode 8 review: Hardhome

14 hours ago

Week nine has come early in Game Of Thrones' fifth season, judging by this blistering and chilling battle episode...

This review contains spoilers.

5.8 Hardhome

There's something of a tradition on Game Of Thrones that the ninth episode is the centerpiece of the season, the default finale if you will, with an episode afterwards to pick up the pieces. Ned Stark lost his head in the ninth episode. Tyrion saved King's Landing in the Battle of Blackwater in the ninth episode. The Wildling invasion was repelled by the Night's Watch and the forces of Stannis Barratheon in the ninth episode. It was a nice day for a Red Wedding in the ninth episode. And yet, this is the eighth episode of the season and it's as awesome and crazy and mind-blowing as any action sequence from Neil Marshall could have hoped to be.

I'm not sure why I thought I »

Rise Of The Tomb Raider: new teaser trailer

16 hours ago

Action sequel Rise Of The Tomb Raider has a brand spanking new trailer, which you can see within...

Globe-trotting heroine Lara Croft got a worthy updating with Tomb Raider, the 2013 game that took the character in a grittier, survivalist new direction.

This year's sequel, Rise Of The Tomb Raider, will expand the previous game's island-based horizons to the wastes of Siberia, where Croft will go on the search for a 700-year-old hidden city.

Survival's clearly still on the agenda, as the brand new teaser trailer below seems to prove. There's Lara, clambering the mountains of Siberia as the wind howls around her. It doesn't really show us much that we didn't already know about, but it's all very atmospheric.

The trailer paves the way for what will probably be a much more in-depth reveal at E3 later this month, so stay tuned for that.

Powers: Blu-ray release date revealed for comic book adaptation

20 hours ago

Not an American PlayStation owner? Been wondering how to watch the Powers TV show? You can pick up a Blu-ray in July, we're told...

Since its release, those without access to an American PlayStation have been incapable of legally watching Powers, the Sony live-action adaptation of Brian Michael Bendis and Michael Avon Oeming's brilliant comic about policing a super-powered world.

Now, though, High-Def Digest have got the inside scoop about the show's upcoming Blu-Ray release. The first season of the show will be available on disc from Tuesday the 14th of July 2015.

Apparently, the suggested list price for the Blu-Ray is $45.99, or about £30 in sterling.

It's worth noting that this news has been described as "an early announcement to retailers," so may not be fully set in stone yet. If we hear any conflicting information, we'll update this story.

Powers is already confirmed for a second season, after season one turned it around, »

Nintendo announces Chibi Robo for 3Ds

20 hours ago

Plucky GameCube era robot Chibi Robo is making a grand return in a new platform adventure for 3Ds...

Update: In more Chibi Robo news, it's now been announced that the new 3Ds adventure will be released in America this October. While a European launch window hasn't been revealed yet, it now seems inevitable that Lasso Action Guru-Guru Chibi Robo, or Chibi Robo: Zip-Lash, as it's now called in these parts, will also appear in Europe.

It's also looking as though Zip-Lash will come in a box-set with its accompanying amiibo - Nintendo have released a first look at the American box art. You can see it below, along with a better-quality shot of the amiibo by itself. Our original story follows. 

Original story: It's almost exactly a decade since Chibi Robo! Plug Into Adventure! appeared on the GameCube. Part platform adventure, part domestic drama, it made an unlikely hero out of its tiny central robot, »

Doctor Who: Moffat on Time War, Capaldi on Carole Ann Ford

21 hours ago

Doctor Who Magazine's new issue has Steven Moffat on his Time War guilt, and Peter Capaldi's desire to get Carole Ann Ford back...

As ever, the new issue of Doctor Who Magazine has thrown up some interesting discussion points for fans of the show. This month, it's Steven Moffat's 'guilt' over the Time War, and Peter Capaldi's desire to bring Carole Ann Ford's Susan back to the show that have sparked debate online. 

Of the Time War, which he famously unravelled in The Day Of The Doctor, Moffat said this:

"The Day of the Doctor was a success. Record ratings, awards, rave reviews. By any measure, it did alright. But two years later, I’m still haunted by the guilt. I know some of you, including friends of mine, were upset that we reversed the outcome of the Time War. My defence, however feeble, is that given the chance, »

Lucifer: Neil Gaiman reacts to petition against TV show

21 hours ago

Lucifer, a comic book version, is set to get his own TV series. A petition against it has appeared, and now Neil Gaiman has waded in.

Lucifer is an upcoming TV series on Fox, based on a comic book version of Satan first originated by Neil Gaiman during his iconic Sandman comic.

As you may have heard last week, One Million Moms have launched a petition against the show claiming that the programme "mischaracterizes" Satan and mocks the Bible. It has gained over 11,000 signatures.

Here's Neil Gaiman's reaction:

"Ah. It seems like only yesterday (but it was 1991) that the “Concerned Mothers of America” announced that they were boycotting Sandman because it contained Lesbian, Gay, Bi and Trans characters. It was Wanda that upset them most: the idea of a Trans Woman in a comic book… They told us they were organising a boycott of Sandman, which they would only »

Ash Vs Evil Dead: new teaser lands for TV revival

21 hours ago

Here's a groovy teaser for the Ash Vs Evil Dead TV show, set to land on Starz this autumn...

As you may have seen over the weekend, Starz have released a brief teaser for their upcoming Evil Dead TV series, Ash Vs Evil Dead.

Although the powers that be are playing it coy with regards to showing Bruce Campbell's reprisal of Ash in full detail, this new chainsaw-heavy video should be enough to get fans of the series pretty excited. That's if a Sam Raimi-produced, Bruce Campbell-starring Evil Dead series wasn't already enough to reach optimum anticipation levels.

Here is the brief clip, dubbed a 'groovy tease'...

Ash Vs Evil Dead will air on Starz this autumn. More on the show as we hear it.

Nintendo's Nx console to be Android based?

21 hours ago

According to a report hailing from Japan, Nintendo's next console, currently named the Nx, will be Android based...

When Nintendo announced the Nx console in March, the only thing the company would say was that it's "a dedicated platform with a brand new concept."

Since then, there's been much speculation as to what form this "new concept" console might take. Will it be a handheld-home console hybrid, like a more portable Wii U game pad? Some have suggested that the X in Nx might represent some form of cross-platform approach, where games that can be played on a mobile can also be played on Nintendo's console.

Well, according to a user on NeoGAF, that latter idea might not be too wide of the mark. Their translation of an article on Japanese business website Nikkei reportedly states that the Nx will use Google's Android's Os - a move designed to attract »

The Death Of Superman Lives: What Happened? review

22 hours ago

The Death Of Superman Lives: What Happened? – the story of Kevin Smith and Tim Burton’s botched Superman film – is pure nerdy joy…

If you’re a regular visitor of this site (or other nerdy corners of the web), you might think you already know everything there is to know about the abandoned 1990s comic book movie Superman Lives. Indeed, the story of Kevin Smith, Tim Burton, Nicolas Cage and Jon Peters' super-sized sparring is the stuff of geek legend.

As someone who has read and written many words about the film, I was in that camp, too. I’m happy to report, though: no matter how off-the-chart your geek cred levels are, you’ll want to check out The Death Of Superman Lives: What Happened?

To put it bluntly – this documentary by Jon Schnepp (which seeks to chronicle how this pre-Superman Returns reboot ballooned its budget and »

Suicide Squad: David Ayer says "surprises are intact"

23 hours ago

Suicide Squad is heading back behind closed doors, as David Ayer assures

For the past couple of weeks, David Ayer's movie of Suicide Squad for Warner Bros and DC has been shooting out in the open. We've tried to hold back on lots of what's been happening, for spoiler reasons, but you didn't have to look far to see material, for instance, of a car chase being filmed in the streets of Toronto. Furthermore, many characters have been seen out in the open as the shoot progressed.

However, for those thinking that the movie may have been revealed a little too much, be assured. Ayer has taken to Twitter, to confirm that the location shooting for Suicide Squad is done, and that now, it's time "to go dark".

Here's his Tweet...

Well we survived the streets. Time to go dark now. Remember, only the tiniest glimpse has been exposed. »

Justice League: lost concept art for abandoned movie appears

23 hours ago

Wonder Woman in action, and Aquaman as he would have looked: work from the abandoned Justice League film has appeared online.

As we were talking about just the other day, as recently as 2008, director George Miller was set to bring the Justice League to the screen for DC and Warner Brothers. Working under the title Justice League: Mortal, Miller's film had the roles of key characters such as Batman, Wonder Woman and Superman cast. But, in the light of the success of Christopher Nolan's Dark Knight films - and for one or two other reasons as well - Warner Bros pulled the plug.

We reported last week too that a planned documentary is to tell the story of the unmade Justice League film, and the team behind said film have posted a taster as to what to expect from it. It comes in the form of concept art »

Jurassic Park 5 will need a new director

23 hours ago

"Jurassic Park is like Star Wars", explains Jurassic World director Colin Trevorrow, as he reveals he's not directing the next film.

So then: do we call the next Jurassic Park movie Jurassic World 2? Or will it be Jurassic Park 5? Probably neither, although it's pretty much certain that there's going to be one.

One other thing that is certain is that Colin Trevorrow, the director of Jurassic World, won't be helming the next installment. He's currently on the promotional trail for the film, and chatting to BadTaste.it, he confirmed that he's not looking to direct the next Jurassic Park film.

"Jurassic Park is like Star Wars", Trevorrow told the site. "Different directors can give different tastes to each movie". Not that Trevorrow's Jurassic Park days are entirely behind him. "I would like to be involved in some way, but not as director", he added.

Jurassic World arrives in cinemas in the UK on June 11th, »

Spider-Man: decision expected this week, final shortlist

23 hours ago

Six contenders remain in the quest to become Spider-Man in the Marvel cinematic universe...

It's probably the most sought-after casting news on the planet at the moment: who is going to take over from Andrew Garfield as Spider-Man. And the answer? We don't know. At least not yet.

Marvel and Sony are nearing their decision though, with the webslinger set to join the Marvel cinematic universe with 2016's Captain America: Civil War. Then, Spider-Man will get his own, fresh standalone movie in the summer of 2017.

Casting rumours have been circling for the past couple of months, with Asa Butterfield at one stage said to have clinched the role. That proved to be premature, however, as The Hollywood Reporter has revealed that Marvel has been conducting screen tests for the final candidates over the weekend.

There are six candidates currently in the mix. Asa Butterfield (Hugo) is indeed one of them, »
