Well, I certainly didn’t see that coming.
After a few episodes that have tested the patience of some viewers (“We’re Still Not at the wedding?!” they say) , How I Met Your Mother has rewarded us with a huge moment. But as usual, it didn’t take place in the present-day.
You see, thirty-three hours before the wedding, a few things were going on: Barney’s mom and Robin were still in a massive feud, Marshall was still on the road with Daphne, and Ted was still trying to convince the hotel desk attendant that he wasn’t a lonely, »

Collaborating with writer and Idw senior editor John Barber, scribe James Roberts will be illustrator Phil Jimenez who will be providing his artistic talents for the 12 part series Transformers: Dark Cybertron.
The war between the Autobots and Decepticons is over—but when the relentless Shockwave enacts a scheme millions of years in the making, yesterday’s nightmares tear apart today’s peace.
“I’ve been a fan of the Transformersbrand since I was 13 and this was a fanboy dream come true,” stated Phil Jimenez. “The beauty of this story is it plays to the strengths of the characters and to my strengths as a storyteller; epic, world-shattering scale as well as those beautiful character moments that make readers care about a bunch of giant Robots in Disguise.” Jimenez noted, “The script for #1 was probably one of the best I’ve worked from in years. Totally awesome stuff —I just hope »

Maybe Olivia Pope needs to do some damage control for ABC, which brought back only two of the 10 shows it premiered last season. At the network’s upfront presentation on Tuesday, Kerry Washington appeared in a pre-taped clip as her character from Scandal, and offered advice to Anne Sweeney, the president of Disney/ABC Television Group, alongside Jimmy Kimmel. Discussing the problem of Dancing With the Stars, which took a ratings dip this season, Kimmel quipped, “For one thing, they’re not really stars.” There aren’t a ton of stars in ABC’s new lineup, either — but there are »

Last week I got my hands on the new instalment in the Xcom franchise in The Bureau. The whole franchise has taken a somewhat exciting turn since the last year as Enemy Unknown was thrust upon unsuspecting gamers to universal praise. I was one of them. It was one of the best games of last year. The tactical turn based strategy game was a really interesting choice on a console, and while other strategy games have struggled on those platforms in the past, Enemy Unknown was intuitive, creative and let the player do as they please.
If you are new to the series, the basics are: Aliens, Invasion, Stop Invasion. The series has a long history having started in 1994 and has gone through a few genres but the hardcore fanbase generally identify with the top down turned based strategy games in the series. That is why when a first person »

Summer is on its way and no doubt many of you students out there are on your final stretch for the year. And what comes after your hand-ins and exams? Well you all get stupidly drunk and go party. However, I am sure if you consider yourself a little nerdy like me, you can sometimes feel a little out of the loop when it comes to these crazy night clubs and people shouting, “I love this song” as you nod not knowing what they are talking about. You like video games and thus have missed this dance and dubstep fad. But alas, I bring you salvation! You too can now rock these parties and even become the DJ. It is alright. You can use my playlist, I won’t tell any one.
It is an unspoken rule of the internet that if it exists in the pop culture, it has »

One of the main appeals of video games is their outlandishness, their ability to allow us to do things we couldn’t in real life such as, say, fly…or fire a gun that launches cows at the enemy. Action games are defined by a number of things – the enemies, the maps, and of course, the kick-ass array of weaponry bestowed upon you.
Though it’s great fun wielding super-powered machine guns and rocket launchers, some developers appreciate that there’s a lot to be said for a weapon that is just outright ridiculous, and generally, the sillier a weapon is, the more fun it will be to use.
And no, I’m not talking about the likes of the Bfg from Doom – that’s too normal for this discussion. Read on to see just how demented things can get…
