PC gaming is expected to be worth $35 billion by 2018

3 hours ago

According to game-business group Open Gaming Alliance, the PC gaming industry is expected to grow to $38 billionn by 2018.

That’s a pretty colossal increase from the $26 billionn the industry is currently worth today. The information is collected here, in this graph:

The main reasons for this expected growth are being attributed to the rise of free-to-play games and the continued growth of the already huge eSports scene. According to the data accrued in the graph, console gaming will reach a peak in 2018 with over $30bn, before beginning to drop off.

Handhelds are expected to continue to decline, while mobile platforms continue to rise greatly. The information was collected by Dfc Intelligence, a research firm. An analyst from the firm, David Cole, said: “In past years much of the growth in PC games has been due to adoption of the platform in Asia. Now we are estimating a potential 86 million PC »

Mutants Battle Mutants as Secret Wars revisits X-Tinction Agenda

3 hours ago

As part of its epic Secret Wars, Marvel is revisiting a classic X-Men crossover this June as writer Marc Guggenheim (Arrow) and artist Carmine Di Giandomenico (All-New X-Factor) return to the shores of Genosha for X-Tinction Agenda.

“A virus is decimating the mutant and mutate population,” states Marc Guggenheim. “The X-Men have a cure in the form of Triage, but won’t violate the quarantine that Genosha is under, not wanting to risk extinction should the virus spread. Havok and Wolfsbane take it upon themselves to go and get Triage and bring him back to Genosha, by force if necessary.”

It has been ten years since the fall of Cameron Hodge and his fascist regime. Ten years that Havok and Wolfsbane have toiled and labored to rebuild Genosha into the proud mutant homeland it once was. But a decade removed from Hodge and his iron rule, their work may all be for naught. »

Comic Book Review – 2000Ad Prog 1920

4 hours ago

Oliver Davis reviews 2000Ad Prog 1920…

Borag Thungg, Earthlets…

Judge Dredd takes place entirely within the Mayflower’s Agri-Dome this week. Greg Staples is really at home here, his yellow corn fields against a glowing orange sky forging a dreamlike quality to the strip. The pencilling is ever so slightly blurred, forms merging into one another. It contrasts with the rest of the team’s, their colours blue, cold and harsh, their lining more refined. Unfortunately, for the first time in the series so far, the story lags. John Wagner’s penchant for tongue-in-cheek Dreddisms (“This’ll have to go in my report”) diminishes Staples’ painterly seriousness. The art has it right; Wagner’s writing is too comedic.

Comedy is what Survival Geeks struggled with last week, but thankfully it’s back on form, focusing much more upon its characters’ individual quirks. Simon is obsessed with fulfilling the plots of his favourite sci-fi films, »

Comic Book Review – Black Science #12

6 hours ago

Zeb Larson reviews Black Science #12…

Stranded deeper in the Onion than ever before, lost in the void, the Dimensionauts set out on a bold new course: no longer merely explorers on the frontier of forbidden science, can they become saviors of the Eververse?!

After a two and a half month hiatus, Black Science is back. It’s the nature of this series to hit the ground running, and it’s no exception in the newest world that the explorers have landed in. Indeed, this is almost a frustrating issue. With only 24 pages to land in the new world, rehash some of the lingering questions from the last issue, and introduce the new place that they’ve landed, what we get feels maddeningly short. Still, it’s good to have this series back, and it looks as though we’ll get to delve into some serious darkness in this story arc. »

Mike Colter says Luke Cage is “geared towards an adult audience”

6 hours ago

Mike Colter is set to play Luke Cage in A.K.A. Jessica Jones next year before getting his own series shortly thereafter. We’ve already heard that Daredevil will be taking on a “dark and gritty” tone which is unlike the McU movies, but what can we expect from Luke Cage?

“It’s geared towards an adult audience, which is something that will be different from the Marvel Cinematic Universe that you’ve seen before on the big screen,” he told IGN. “I’m excited about playing the character because I’ve read the comic books. They’re very detailed, gritty; the world they’ve written in the comic books is very clear. Marvel does a fantastic job about bringing human stories – because you’re telling big stories with a heart at the centre of it – and that’s what connects all of the characters to our audience members.

New details on Daredevil villains including The Owl and The Gladiator

6 hours ago

We’re less than two months away now from the debut of Daredevil in the Marvel Universe as he kicks off their new TV franchise, before handing the reins over to A.K.A. Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist. We know that we’ll be seeing Daredevil’s biggest adversary The Kingpin in the show, but Brazilian site The Omelete have provided some new information on other baddies.

A big thanks to the chaps over at McU Exchange for the translation.

The site reports that Melvin Potter, aka The Gladiator, will play a “large part” in the show as Wilson Fisk’s weapon guy and will be providing The Kingpin with some kitted out cars and even a kevlar suit. The Gladiator was one of Daredevil’s early villains but would eventually reform and become an ally to the Man Without Fear down the line.

Dylan O’Brien addresses the Spider-Man casting rumours, “I haven’t heard anything about it”

7 hours ago

When the announcement came that Spider-Man had joined the ranks of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, it was only a matter of time before casting speculation started to run its course. The first couple of names to be thrown into the mix by some websites was Logan Lerman (Fury) and Dylan O’Brien (The Mazer Runner), stating that they were Sony’s frontrunners.

Well, at least 50% of that rumour appears to be false.

“Professionally, I haven’t heard anything about it,” O’Brien told Buzzfeed. “I’ve only heard from, like, [rumors] online. It feels so weird to say. It’s so funny. My friends from New Jersey are calling me. They’re like, what are you not telling me, dude?! Spider-Man?! It makes me feel bad because I’m, like, disappointing a big chunk of fans across the nation. You can tell them that it’s not true.”

“It’s nothing but flattering, »

Skylanders and Disney Infinity helped Amiibo success

10 hours ago

Nintendo president Satoru Iwata has attributed some of the success of the Amiibo figures in the West to the success of Skylanders and Disney Infinity figures.

Speaking during Nintendo’s 2015 end of fiscal year earnings call, Iwata said: “When it comes to the figure and video game entertainment category, there are two existing franchises: Activision released Skylanders four years ago, and Disney released Disney Infinity two years ago… However, before we actually launched Amiibo, the number of consumers who were aware of the overall concept of this product category, namely, toy figures are lined up on a store shelf in the video game section and when you buy and use it with a game, something very fun would happen, differed greatly in Japan from the rest of the world.”

Iwata revealed that the Japanese distributors believed Amiibo to be “a little too big” and too costly for a figure in the Japanese market. »
