Sony is moving forward on its five-film plan for joint film franchises based on the Valiant comic books “Harbinger” and “Bloodshot,” which are then set to culminate in a “Harbinger Wars” crossover event film.
Within the last month, Sony has preemptively renewed its option on “Harbinger” — a comic following a teenage runaway Peter Stanchek with massive telekinetic powers — for a sum in the high six figures and is moving to package the pictures quickly. Continue reading
Saturday morning, September 17th, 1983. One week before my 11th birthday and only a few weeks after I’d first played Dungeons and Dragons, CBS aired the first 30 minutes of the greatest saturday morning adventure ever. Every weekend for the next three years would include this half hour animated Dungeons and Dragons animated series.
27 episodes of following Hank the ranger, Eric the cavalier, Sheila, the thief, Diana the acrobat, Presto the magician, Bobby the barbarian, and Uni, the baby unicorn, as they searched the realm for a way home to our world after being magically transported via a Dungeons and Dragons roller coaster at an amusement park.
Dungeon Master served as a sort of guide and impetus to the group, dropping clues and instigating adventures and investigations along the way.
Back in July, Sideshow teased a new Hulk vs Wolverine maquette based on the cover of Incredible Hulk #181, the Canadian mutants first appearance (the one panel appearance in the previous issue was just a cameo). Now we have full details along with images of the new piece that is now available for pre-order. Continue reading

The Witching Hour
As part of its Sony Playstation press conference today, Sony have announced a refresh of the PlayStation 4 line-up. Along with a new slimmer model of the PS4 which will become the standard moving forward, there will also be the PS4 Pro which has more processing power and is capable of 4K resolution.
Both consoles will be made HDR compatible in a firmware update next week. The slimmer PS4 will have all of the capabilities of the current console, but in a smaller box. It goes on sale on September 15th and will sell at $299.
The PS4 Pro gets hardware upgrades with doubled GPU power, AMD Polaris technology adapted for the console, boosted clock speed, and a 1Tb hard drive. The same discs and downloads will run on both models of PS4 but play in different ways.
For exisiting titles like “Uncharted 4” and “Deus Ex: Mankind Divided,” patches will be released with “over a half-dozen Sony titles” in the works and numerous third-party titles also on the way. The patches allow the PS4 Pro to make full use of the Pro’s capabilities. The PS4 Pro launches November 10th priced at $399.
I’d like to begin this review by clarifying that I am well beyond the intended demographic of Monster High, but I really do love it. I love that the characters are the children of famous monsters (Dracula, The Wolfman, The Phantom of the Opera, etc) and that I appreciate the main message this IP has for young ladies: Be yourself!
Video games are often under plenty of scrutiny for their violent content, but when you add an iconic slasher character like Jason Voorhees into the mix things can get even more volatile.
On the one hand you’re either going to get something so insanely risque it could be banned in certain countries, or you could deliver something that shows the hockey masked killer is an amateur compared to playable characters in this arena.
Gun Media Home Video and IllFonic are having a crack at it with “Friday the 13th: The Game” and now a new trailer for it has come out of PAX West – a trailer showing off a collection of brutal kills of horny camp counselors you can carry out with a machete, a spear, an axe, a pitchfork and his own hands.
It’s a gruesome, brutal and decidedly NSFW video so proceed at your own risk. The game itself is due for release in October.
With PAX West on this long weekend in Seattle, gaming fans are getting the chance to play some of the Fall’s upcoming big titles including the highly anticipated “Gears of War 4” – Microsoft’s big exclusive and the debut of the famed series on the current generation of hardware.
Today some twenty minutes of gameplay from the title’s cooperative ‘Horde Mode 3.0’ have gone online. The mode pits five soldiers against increasingly difficult waves of enemies – you must defend yourselves for as long as possible against as many as fifty rounds of enemy encounters.
New to this version is a card-based skill unlock system, a class-based system, and the use of a barrier generating ‘Fabricator’. The game itself hits stores on October 11th.
