12 Hugely Underrated Open-World Games You Totally Missed

Sony/Pandemic/Thq/Warner Bros/CD Projekt Red

Seems these days everybody and their third cousin is having a bash at the open-world formula. First born by Rockstar back in 2001, you could argue it’s the epitome of everything we love about video games. Encouraging you to experiment with all sorts of tools at your disposal, developers can strike a balance between free-form exploration and narrative, setting up a mix of well-designed set-pieces vs. dynamic events you’ll end up spontaneously triggering yourself.

Flash-forward almost 15 years since we first stepped foot into Claude’s mute shoes and the games that bare the label now are genuine worlds to dive into and explore. Skyrim felt gargantuan for 2011, but have you felt the breadth of just one of The Witcher 3’s areas? How about Metal Gear Solid V’s twin landscapes or Mad Max’s gorgeous wasteland?

[Comic Execution] 8/8 – Mars Attacks, Big Trouble In Little China, The Shadow

Pulp Comics!! God, I can’t believe I’m turning into that guy. The sad thing is that I am the proud owner of a trenchcoat that looks exactly like it came out of a detective novel. No, not a creepy Hot Topic black leather duster, I’m talking the real thing, as vintage as you can get without dropping a few grand. Definitely holding on to it in case trenchcoats come back in style. Or the apocalypse happens. Whichever comes first.

Also, I just noticed that, for the second time, I’m reviewing all #3 issues. I think it’s a good omen.

The Shadow: Midnight In Moscow #3

Writer: Howard Chaykin

Artist: Howard Chaykin

Colorist: Jesus Aburto

Publisher: Dynamite Entertainment

Price: $4 (Digital)

I’m pretty excited about a new announcement involving The Shadow. Interestingly, this new title is going down at Dark Horse Comics, rather than at Dynamite, the

[Comic Execution] 6/27 – Trees, Mars Attacks: First Born, Nightbreed

I Screwed Up.

Thanks to the kindly efforts of Mars Attacks: First Born author Chris Ryall, I’ve become aware that Comixology has been unintentionally misleading me. Really, if anything, I’ve been misleading myself but I refuse to take All the blame because, well, who actually does that, ever? Regardless, it turns out I’ve been sorely mistaken on the page count for several comics, including Mars Attacks: First Born, because two-page spreads are only counted as single pages in Comixology’s reader. As a result, the previous issue of Mars Attacks: First Born was actually a perfectly fine 21 pages and not a mere 20, as I said in my review. I didn’t discover this until after I’d already written this week’s review of Mars Attacks: First Born but in the interest of transparency, I left in my comments about the page count.

‘Wonder Woman’ #32 is finally picking up pace

  • SoundOnSight
Wonder Woman #32

Written by Azzarello

Art by Goran Sudzuka

Cover by Cliff Chiang

Published by DC Comics

Brian Azzarello’s tale of Wonder Woman’s battle against the First Born is finally picking up pace. This is understandable considering Azzarello’s time on the title is coming to an end soon. In these final issues, time is given over to explorations of each God before the final showdown.

Azzarelo and artists Cliff Chiang and Goran Sudzuka continue their beautiful re-imaginings of characters from myth and colours used are bright and vibrant. It is difficult not to view the action in this issue as a precursor of the battle looming a few months down the line. While Azzarelo is a writer known mostly for crime stories, his work on Wonder Woman is just as well-composed and – when he does finally step away from the helm – will be difficult to follow.

Ten Best: Episodes of ‘Supernatural’

The road so far …

It wasn’t exactly easy for genre television in 2005. Well, it’s really never been easy for genre television ever in the history of television, but in 2005, a deluge of genre shows premiered and almost all of them had fallen prey to the swift axe of the television gods by the next year. Start by thinking about television now. It’s a fruitful time for horror and science fiction and fantasy. There are a multitude of genre shows, running the gamut from The Walking Dead, Game of Thrones, to True Blood and The Vampire Diaries. They’re all massive hits.

Now, think of all of the shows that premiered around that time in 2005. There was Surface, and that was cancelled after ten episodes by NBC. Invasion, a well-regarded show written by Shaun Cassidy (who created one of my favorite shows, American Gothic) and that was cancelled

[Comic Execution] 5/16 – ‘Vincent Price: Night Terror’, ‘Mars Attacks: First Born’, ‘Tales From The Con: Year One’

I think it’s high time we start putting a premium on subtitles. Not the subtitles that you see in foreign films. I’m talking about when a book or a movie or a video game has the main title and also a secondary title that is deemed necessary for dumb audiences to figure out that it’s different from the previous, identically titled thing. For example; is it really necessary for every iteration of Bluewater Productions’ ‘Vincent Price Presents’ series to have a different subtitle? Can’t they all just be called ‘Vincent Price Presents’? This week’s column title was nearly a third of the work I did getting this thing published!

Actually, you know what? I’ve changed my mind. From now on, every week, I’m going to give Comic Execution a new subtitle. Give ‘em a taste of their own medicine. And you know what

Game of Thrones Season Four – Episode 6 Review

Oliver Davis reviews the sixth episode of Game of Thrones Season Four…

The Laws of Gods and Men.

Directed by Alik Sakharov.

Written by Bryan Cogman.

Davos

Davos Seaworth (Liam Cunningham) really is one of Westeros’ nice guys. Despite his best friend, Stannis Baratheon (Stephen Dillane), locking him away in a dungeon for months on end; the ironic notion of him holding the King’s hand position whilst missing four fingers; and that everyone assumes he was a pirate, he maintains his cheery disposition. “A smuggler, Your Grace/Lordship/Crazy Woman in a Red Dress” he patiently corrects them all.

The semantic difference has become a pretty neat running gag as of late, and hopefully he’s winning over more viewers with every scene. His awkward bromance with Stannis doesn’t hurt, either. Rather than flat out lament Davos’ suggestions, Stannis subtly contorts his cheek, or screws up an eyeball.

Adam Rifkin picks up rights for a Peeps big screen adventure

Adam Rifkin picks up rights for a Peeps big screen adventure
(Cbr) Peeps might have gone from the love-it-or-hate-it candy of springtime to the stuff that dioramas are built from, but can they make the even larger leap to the big screen? Deadline reports Adam Rifkin ("Detroit Rock City") thinks the answer will be a resounding yes. The filmmaker recently snatched up the movie rights from Pennsylvania-based candy company First Born. He intends to set the "Lego Movie"-esque project at one of the aforementioned diorama contests. One particular Peep gets lost and must journey through a variety of diorama-based scenes before returning home. Rifkin, who has penned films like "Underdog" and "Mousehunt", will write the script.

New Four-Issue Mars Attacks: First Born Series Launches in May

There have been many stories told in the Mars Attacks universe, but nothing quite like this! Beginning in May, Chris Ryall and Sam Kieth (The Hollows) join forces once again for Mars Attacks: First Born, the story of the first Earth-born Martian.

Mars Attacks: First Born, a four-issue series from Idw Publishing written by Ryall from a story co-plotted by Ryall and Kieth, featuring art and covers by Kieth, tells a deceptively quiet story of the aftereffects of the Martian invasion:

In a devastated neighborhood, a few survivors try to rebuild their lives. One of those survivors is an infant Martian, left behind in the attacks. But was she left behind on accident or as part of a more nefarious plan? Does nature versus nurture apply to horrible invaders from Mars? These are some of the themes being explored in this series. Also: giant bugs.

Supernatural, Ep. 9.11, “First Born” makes Dean Abaddon’s new worst enemy

  • SoundOnSight

Supernatural, Season 9, Episode 11: “First Born

Written by Robbie Thompson

Directed by John Badham

Airs Tuesdays at 9pm (Et) on The CW

While the split between the Winchester brothers that ended last week’s episode could have felt like a retread of past seasons, numerous other factors added potential to the idea. Not only was Castiel back and in Angelic form, but Sam’s continued recovery from the trials necessitated Castiel’s stay with him. Along with Crowley’s freedom and Kevin’s death, the group was significantly more shaken up than it was just a few short weeks ago. This week picks up on the character relationships once again, in an intriguing episode that feels like an almost new start to the season.

Giving Dean the mark of Cain adds an interesting dynamic to the show. While the current purpose of killing Abaddon is clear, the mark

“The thrilling and terrifying journey of the Winchester brothers continues as Supernatural enters its ninth season.

With the help of allies — both human and supernatural — they’ve discovered that every threat they vanquish opens a new door for evil to enter in.
