PS4 And Vita TV May Be Region Locked After All

16 November 2013 8:44 AM, PST

According to Sony, PS4 isn't region locked, but we may have discovered otherwise.

A while ago, Sony was asked if the PS4 was region locked. They answered that it simply wasn't, but soon after questions swirled if it were true. According to the PlayStation Faq, there is some region locks on it as it states : "From the view point of each region’s safety standards and to guarantee operation, please purchase the PS4 console and the games that are sold in your area. There’s the possibility that the titles of some software developers could be region locked. In addition to that, you may no longer eligible for support if you use a an overseas model of the PS4 in Japan."

Yoshida-san has stated numerous times that the console is region free, but we couldn't help but to test some things. Upon getting our new PS4, we tried using »

DVD Review: Under the Dome

16 November 2013 12:42 AM, PST

It's always an event when a Stephen King book is adapted into a movie or miniseries. With Under the Dome, we now have an ongoing television show from the master of suspense and horror. Although it's more sci-fi than terrifying, it still manages to keep you on the edge of your seat at times. After binge-watching the entire first season, I have to say I was expecting a little more than what I got.

Chester's Mill is a seemingly perfect example of small-town America from the outside. On the inside, its citizens are entangled in all sorts of dramatic and compromising situations. Things get even tenser when a dome seals the town off from the rest of the world. With no rescue in sight, the community comes unhinged as they come to grips with food, water, and medical supply shortages. All the while, the leaders of Chester's Mill search for »

15 November 2013 3:24 PM, PST

The CW network has released the full episode synopsis of the upcoming episode of Arrow entitled “The Scientist,” which features the first appearance of the Flash, who will be getting his own CW series in 2014.

The Flash has always been one of the more popular and well-known DC characters. There has already been a Flash TV series, and now a new one is in the early stages of development. The planned Flash series is being spun-off from the series Arrow. The Flash’s introductory episode sees the Arrow partnering with Central City forensic police scientist Barry Allen when a new case reminds Oliver of something from his time stranded on the island.

The synopsis: A seemingly impossible robbery at Queen Consolidated’s Applied Sciences Division brings Central City police scientist Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) to town. Citing a similar case back home, Barry offers to help Oliver (Stephen Amell) and his team with the investigation. »

Elizabeth Olsen Talks About Preparing to Play the Scarlet Witch in Avengers 2

15 November 2013 3:17 PM, PST

She recently confirmed that she will be playing the hex-casting Scarlet Witch in Avengers: Age of Ultron. Now, Elizabeth Olsen is talking about her views on the character and how she’s prepping for the role.

While at the press junket for Spike Lee’s Oldboy remake, Olsen spoke a bit about her participation in the Avengers sequel. The brother/sister characters of Quicksilver and the Scarlet Witch are popular and well-established heroes from the Marvel comic universe. The siblings are mutants, which will cause some difficulty regarding their origins, since Fox Studies holds the rights to their father Magneto, not Disney. Some re-writing will have to be done on the two characters. Olsen, however, is not waiting to see what revisions are done to the character’s origin. She is researching the character now. She shares her opinions on the role.

Olsen says, “So far I’m just doing »

Kevin Smith Has Seen Affleck’s Batman Suit and Loves It

15 November 2013 3:11 PM, PST

Director and comic book fan Kevin Smith has become one of the first to see the design of the new Batman costume that Ben Affleck will be wearing in the Man of Steel sequel and praises the design.

Kevin Smith revealed on November 9th during his weekly Hollywood Babble-On podcast that he has seen a photo of Affleck in the Batman costume which he will don in Batman vs. Superman. Smith claims he was so thrilled with what he saw, that he hugged the film's director Zack Snyder.

Smith says, “You have not seen this costume on film before. For a comic book fan, it was mind-bending... Because every other movie does this Matrix-y black armor thing…There wasn’t a single nipple on this suit. I think everyone is just gonna be like ‘Holy S#-t!’ It’s its own thing. We haven’t been down this path before. »

8 Movies Which Are Better Than the Books They're Based On

15 November 2013 12:56 PM, PST

Just about every movie buff has heard this phrase uttered (if they didn’t say it themselves) by someone, “The movie was good...but the book was better.”  Since books have significantly more time to cover character development and a deeper story, there are many people who think this is always the case.  Because of that, I’ve come up with a list of the 6 movies that were actually better than the books...Just so you have something to come back with in these kinds of discussions.

Books have always been a hot property for filmmakers; dating all the way back to Gone With The Wind.  And with The Hunger Games: Catching Fire hitting theaters next week, Ender's Game a couple weeks ago, and several more on the horizon, book adaptations are hotter than ever!  While many times it's true that a book can be better than the movie, every »

15 November 2013 8:34 AM, PST

Seems we may have created a new hash tag trend, MGS_Monday! Why? Because thats when a new trailer will be released that further showcases what the exclusive mission is for PS4 and Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes.  Come inside to watch the current trailer that released last night. 

Kojima hinted that he would be announcing something during the PS4 midnight party, and that it would blow our minds. Well he did, and the announcement was an exclusive mission for PS4 to celebrate Mgs growing alongside the PlayStation brand.

The Mission is titled Deja-Vu, and it takes old snake and puts him into Ground Zeroes enviroment. By old snake, we mean low polygon count Snake from the original Mgs title on PS1.

14 November 2013 5:37 PM, PST

Aussie talks up comics favorite canucklehead next solo adventure and another project featuring based on Harry Houdini

As the home release of The Wolverine is fast approacing and X-Men: Days Of Future Past is headed to theaters next summer, Hugh Jackman has been making the interview rounds and has shared a few details concerning the next solo chapter of his adventures:

"I was on the phone with James Mangold last night. There are some really cool ideas that I'm dying to tell you, but that would be giving away a secret that is not even [fully] formed yet.

I don't want to dive into another one until we have a compelling reason to do another one. I love the character, he's kind of like a best friend to me, and I don't ever want to take [him] or the fans for granted. ... I think we've got a great opportunity to make something really cool, »

Graphic Review: Animal Man Volume 3: Rotworld: The Red Kingdom

14 November 2013 9:25 AM, PST

DC Comics continues to blur the lines between their adult-oriented Vertigo Comics and mainstream identity with Animal Man Volume 3: Rotworld: The Red Kingdom. This graphic novel collection contains Animal Man #12 through #17 and Swamp Thing #12, #17, and #18. The two monthly series continue to complement each other and give the lesser-known character of Animal Man a better sense of belonging for readers in the DC Universe.

Animal Man and Swamp Thing must join forces to do battle against the Rot and keep it in balance with the Red and Green elements of the natural world. In order to do so, they journey into a future where the evil Anton Arcane has set up his kingdom of Un-Men and Rotlings after taking over. At the same time in the present, Animal Man's family and Abigail Arcane battle for their lives in the absence of their loved ones.

Graphic Review: Smallville: Season Eleven Volume Two: Detective

14 November 2013 7:21 AM, PST

Sometimes it's hard for comic book fans to separate the worlds of the printed page with that of the film and television ones. I'm just as guilty as anyone of wanting the two to co-exist together, even though it really isn't possible. Some would argue, but I found Smallville to be an entertaining and satisfying adaptation of the traditional Superboy tale. The show consistently showed the trials and tribulations of growing up as a normal teen, not to mention one with secret super powers which kept you from fully opening up to even your closest friends.

Smallville: Season Eleven Volume Two: Detective continues to take the TV series into the young adult working world of Clark Kent and Superman. The Man of Steel comes up against another caped avenger and his female sidekick when Batman and Nightwing travel to Metropolis to seek out the murderer of Bruce Wayne's parents. »

Watch the Official Trailer for Noah!

14 November 2013 5:10 AM, PST

The trailer for Darren Aronofsky's "Noah" is finally here. Come inside to see how big budget and religion can now belong in the same sentence! 

Most movies that feature the destruction of the Earth take place in the future. Darren Aronofsky's latest will channel the familliar tone of those disaster films but differentiate itself by doing so in a somewhat religious context. Noah is an epic film starring Russel Crowe and featuring Jennifer Connely, Emma Watson, Logan Lerman, and Anthony Hopkins. It follows the Biblican tale in which a man named Noah uses his visions as premonition to build an arc to save life on Earth from a massive flood. Epic is indeed a good word to describe what this film is, but it may not be enough. Check out the trailer to judge for yourself. 

From the trailer we can see that this isn't just a movie »

PSA: Download PS4 Patch Today

13 November 2013 1:37 PM, PST

Heads up for all you future PS4 owners, you can download the mandatory day one patch right now.

If you have been living under a rock, you might like to know that the PS4 has a day one patch. The patch opens up a lot of features for the PS4 and is required to install to access pretty much everything. You can still play games and have it function without the patch, but you will end up wanting to install it one way or another.

With that being said, the launch day is going to be crazy and the download might take a very long time. It comes in at a few hundred Mb's in space, and currently takes 10-15 minutes to download. You can access it by heading to Sony's website and following the instructions to put it on a Usb drive. It is very similar to how the »

13 November 2013 12:55 PM, PST

Sony is hosting an event during the launch of the PS4. The event will be hosted on Spike TV, and Sony already noted that some new announcement will happen there. Well we just got a massive clue as to what one of them will be.

Full Length Trailer for Divergent Steps it Up a Little

13 November 2013 11:11 AM, PST

This morning during a live chat with the cast of Divergent, Summit Entertainment released the full length theatrical trailer for the upcoming young adult book adaptation.  Fortunately the newest trailer steps things up from the teaser, but it still feels like something is lacking.  Come inside to check it out!

I've read Divergent.  I enjoyed it for the most part, but the ending left a lot to be desired and felt like it was born more out of a need to wrap things up than anything that flowed naturally.  As such, I've held off on finishing up the trilogy, but have been interested in seeing what the film will bring to the table.  The first teaser wasn't that great.  It seemed to want to highlight the most boring aspects of the book instead of the meatier parts.  This brand new trailer steps things up a bit though:

I'm still not entirely sold. »

Call of Duty: Ghosts Online Review (Same Old Awesomeness?)

13 November 2013 7:42 AM, PST

With the new consoles coming out, we have a lot to do with such a small team here. Luckily Activision made things a bit easier by sending us a copy of Call of Duty: Ghosts. Okay, it actually put more on our plate, but who cares! With that being said, I figured the best way to allow myself to write a reasonable review was to break the game review up into two parts. The first part, the one you are reading, covers online. The second part will include the single player, extinction mode, and possibly the PS4 version of the title, unless that breaks away too. Call of Duty: Ghosts will be alongside our next generation launch coverage, so be sure to stick around for even more goodness!

When reviewing a game I like to complete them entirely before reviewing them. That’s why I went to the most important »

First Teaser Trailer for Disney's Maleficent is Pretty Light on the Content

13 November 2013 7:23 AM, PST

As promised, Disney has released the first official teaser trailer for Maleficent, a live-action prequel of sorts telling the origins of the notorious villain from Sleeping Beauty.  "Teaser" is about all you can expect from it as well, as it seems to give no real hint to the main story, and mostly features shots of Angelina Jolie looking awesome as the titular character.  Come inside to check it out.

I don't know what I was expecting from this trailer, but what we got seems pretty light.  I know it's a teaser, but even for that, it's not giving much of anything away, nor any real hints at the story.  Perhaps it's because I don't know enough about the character, as some hardcore Disney fans might.  Either way, I think I was hoping for a little more, and I'll explain why after:

Aside from the films coming from their purchased studios (i. »
