Well folks, we've reached the end of 2013 and last week I wrote out the list of games the ate up my time most (and most enjoyably) over the year. Today, however, I'm all about looking forward and breaking down the games I'm looking forward to getting my hands on most in 2014. With a new generation of consoles hitting their stride (hopefully), this year could be huge for the industry, and there's plenty for gamers to be excited about. Check out my most anticipated inside!
Let's get some quickies out of the way, some of which would be considered 'Runner Ups' while others should be givens:
Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Z
Mario Kart 8
Massive Chalice - Double Fine Productions, Tba 2014
Double Fine once again took to KickStarter for a new video game project (much as they did with the highly anticipated »

It was a bumper year for science fiction movies, and spectacle films are getting better, so we end the year with a nod to the best geek flicks of 2013
• More from the Week in geek series
• The best films of 2013
• The films to watch in 2014
The superhero film gets stronger, while art house film-makers decry the lack of big-screen directing opportunities. It is a sad state of affairs when new movies from directors of the calibre of Steven Soderbergh and David Lynch may never again be seen in multiplexes, especially when those film-makers have made more than their fair share of notable contributions to the genres this column celebrates.
If there is a silver lining, it is that studios are getting better at making these preposterously expensive, spectacle-heavy movies. And they have become considerably more canny when it comes to recruiting film-makers to oversee them. The McGs and Brett Ratners »

How many times have you watched a film or TV show, seen a character using a beautiful, ingenious item and thought ‘I wish I had one of those?’ For example, you’re driving along a congested road at 50 mph and suddenly wish that your car could fly, or better yet that it could travel at the speed of light because you saw them do it in Star Wars?
Films have always been ahead of the curve when it comes to technology, remember when Captain Kirk used a universal translator? Pure Science Fiction they said, yet now you have something similar on your smart phones. It’s amazing to think that the technology we see in films, the stuff we consider unfathomable, could actually become a reality like that, although for some it’s more difficult to see, but that doesn’t stop us believing.

"Maybe it's a risk, I dunno," Chris Pratt tells Empire in their latest issue when asked for his thoughts on where Guardians of the Galaxy fits into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. "I think every movie Marvel's made has been a risk and they're risks that pay off really big. So I hope for the movie's sake, and my sake, that this one pays off. The story's really good and Marvel really knows what they're doing." As for the tone of the movie - which brings together a very unique set of characters - Pratt added: "It's not as broad as Galaxy Quest but it's not a straightforward space fantasy like Star Wars. I think it's the sort of the best of both of those films put together...and more!" The brief report then goes on to reveal that the team comes together when Peter Quill is thrown in jail and »
"Star Wars Rebels’ continues the epic tradition of the legendary ‘Star Wars’ saga with all-new exciting, action-packed adventures. It is a dark time in the galaxy, as the evil Galactic Empire tightens its grip of power from world to world. As the series begins, Imperial forces have occupied a remote planet, ruling with an iron fist and ruining the lives of its people. But there are a select few who are brave enough to stand up against the endless Stormtroopers and Tie fighters of the Empire: the clever and motley crew of the starship “Ghost.” Together, this ragtag group will face threatening new villains, have thrilling adventures, and become heroes." Star Wars Rebels will be with us sometime next year. »
The Flickering Myth writing team pick their favourite comic books of 2013....
2013 has been an exceptional year for comic books. It's one of those years where both the independent publishers and mainstream comic companies have been going toe to tow with quality titles. It's been an embarrassment of riches for comic book fans, and I have found myself enjoying so many titles week after week. The quality of the work being done should be commended, as should the variety of titles out there. I can't remember a year with so many choices. Marvel's superhero titles have never been better. Image has been putting out fantastic fiction and sci-fi titles that are leading the industry in innovation and entertainment value. Dark Horse's pulp line of comics has seen a welcome resurgence. The long dormant Valiant characters have made an amazing comeback. Idw is putting out some fun, over the top titles. »

I found this awesome artwork of a young Palpatine done by long time Star Wars artist Chris Trevas. It also features Darth Plagueis who was Palpatine's master featured in the novels who had arguably the greatest understanding of the Dark Side. From what little I've read, I would love to see a miniseries that highlighted the story of these two when this picture took place! »

With the release of The Dark Knight Rises and the completion of the Dark Knight Trilogy it had me thinking of where it falls when compared to other classic trilogies. Trilogies used to be reserved for a select few, but now everything has a trilogy. I mean Step Up had a trilogy…until they made another movie and now it’s a quadrilogy. To be fair there is a lot of plot in that series so four movies were absolutely necessary. In fact I’m quite surprised Step Up Revolutions wasn’t split up into two parts. That’s not to say that there aren’t any great ones out there, because there are quite a few and I hope to point out some of those today. I created a list of what I think are the best trilogies ever made. I considered a few things when making this list. »

Anghus Houvouras on 'Cin-Cest', or how geek films keep it in the family...
I was watching the latest trailer for How to Train your Dragon 2, a sequel to a movie I quite enjoyed. While pouring over the gorgeous looking teaser for the film, a major plot point was revealed. Technically its not really a spoiler since it's being used in the marketing, however if you're looking to go into the movie completely surprised, steer away as there are spoilers ahead.
The young Hiccup (Jay Baruchel) is facing a potential new villain who seems to have an almost magical connection to the many Dragons that populate this world. The Dragon Whisperer removes their menacing mask to reveal.... Hiccup's Mother.
My eyes rolled, my mouth opened, and the sound that escaped was something like "Urrrrrrrrrrghhhhhhhhhhh" or the the kind of noises that would be produced if Taylor Swift was chewing on aluminum foil. »

The original concept for the Rancor creature in George Lucas' 1983 Star Wars film Return of the Jedi included a guy in a costume, just like Godzilla. They ended up scrapping the idea and used a miniature wireframed puppet. According to the guy who posted the photo on Reddit (Join_You_In_The_Sun), "Dennis Muren of Ilm wanted to avoid a 'muppet look' and shot at high speeds and sometimes backwards." I'm glad they didn't go with the costume, because it just doesn't look as menacing. »

Colorist: Jordie Bellaire (9-13, 17), Andy Troy (13-16)
Publisher: Marvel Comics
Kelly Sue DeConnick took B-list Avenger (or C-list depend on who you’re asking), Carol Danvers, and created one of the best debut comics of 2012, promoting the former Ms. Marvel to Captain Marvel, after her deceased mentor. 2013 has been Carol Danvers’ best year ever; she’s never been more popular, and her comics have never been this good. She started off the year with #9 of her monthly series, a day-in-the-life one-shot similar to what Matt Fraction has been doing with Hawkeye. It’s a real standout issue with cameos by Tony Stark and Spider-Woman, and »

2013 was a big year for comics, both mainstream and independent. DC celebrated Superman’s 75th birthday with the launch of the much hyped (and delayed) Superman Unchained by superstar creators Scott Snyder and Jim Lee. There were also the big crossover events “Trinity War” and its follow up Forever Evil which will continue into 2014. This year also marked the return of Neil Gaiman’s Sandman and other great Vertigo series, like Scott Snyder’s The Wake and Jeff Lemire’s Trillium.Marvel celebrated the X-Men’s 50th anniversary with the time-traveling event “Battle of the Atom” and the launch of Brian Wood’s X-Men, which featured an all female lineup. Marvel had its share of big events (Age of Ultron, Infinity), but it also found room for quirky, offbeat books, like Hawkeye, Young Avengers, and Superior Foes of Spider-Man. 2013 was an especially huge year for Image Comics. It enlisted big name creators like Matt Fraction, »

For the third year in a row I find myself looking through previous Top 5 installments on the last Saturday of the year, trying to whittle the hundreds of stories I've covered in the past 52 weeks down to the five that I find most interesting, important, popular, etc. At its most basic, this is just an exercise of further reducing a list that I've been trimming and prepping on a weekly basis all year long. That's likely the most boring/tedious way of looking at it, but true nonetheless. At its best, I see the "End of the Year Edition" as a Collider time capsule of sorts. A snapshot that is in no way comprehensive enough to properly acknowledge the amount of time, work, thought, travel, money, etc. that goes into making this site what it is. And yet, representative enough of our content as a whole that someone who stumbles »

This year promised a number of great original science fiction movies from Hollywood, and then it turned out most of them weren’t even good let alone great — the sort that left us with way too many unanswered questions regarding their plot holes. Meanwhile, in the fantasy genre, we continued to see the studios churning out one Ya adaptation after another in the hopes of it being the next Hunger Games (or still the next Harry Potter or Twilight or even Star Wars in the case of The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones) and ironically having no clue how to find the *magic* in the appeal of these kinds of stories. And of course there’s the ever-growing subgenre of superhero movies, which really only disappointed this year because they arrived in the wake of 2012′s The Avengers, not simply because most of the output was sequels (Iron Man 3; Thor: The Dark World; The Wolverine) that »
