During Ender’s Game, the lead character of Ender is a part of four separate armies, and each of those armies has their own insignia. It’s like the Houses in Harry Potter, sort of. But more military.
Lionsgate have released the four designs as they’ll appear in Gavin Hood‘s film to a series of Ender’s Game fansites today. Here’s the full set, courtesy of Ender News, Ender Wiggin, Ender’s Game Fansite and Ender’s Ansible.

ALIENS VS PARKER #1

(ONLY 500 AVAILABLE)
From the unhinged, yet lucid mind of Justin lee Fox and the cunning, contemporary art style of Jacob Crippen comes the action adventure Graphic Novel, “JET GIRL”!
This February, brace yourself for a new espionage/sci-fi extravaganza. JUSTIN FOX’S JET GIRL, holds true to the 30’s silver screen serial with a modern feel and pop culture attitude. Dive head first into this full colored 80-page experience.
The project of JUSTIN FOX’S JET GIRL was originally written as 3 one-shots that correlated with one another but were separate adventures in themselves. The first chapter follows Audey/Jet Girl, as she is sent to destroy the Lunar Socialist’s moon base. There, she confronts Junior Hitler, who is a failed clone of the Tyrant Dictator, and his nursemaid Ilsa, who was suppose to be the clone’s queen, but since the experiment failed she is now his caretaker. In this first story we are introduced to Jet Girl herself and the mysterious English covert agent Magistrate Mod, along with her most feared enemies. Who may or may not have ulterior motives behind controlling the Lunar Nazi movement. Through, skill, luck and puberty Jet Girl saves the moon and the day while learning that Mod might know more than he lets on. The 2nd chapter takes us 2 months from the Moon incident where Isla and J.H. have hired the great great grandsons of the Red Barron; two bi wing pilots obsessed with David Bowie and Jet Girl. It’s low-tech versus high-tech in this high flying adventure! All the while Audey/Jet Girl is being watched by a mysterious woman whose intentions are not yet clear, building up to the shocking answer that follows in chapter 3. The 3rd and final chapter of the 80-page Graphic Novel is the confrontation between Audey and the original Jet Girl Cassandra Roe. While earlier stories are very light-hearted this issue shows how Jet Girl can be very diverse in story and atmosphere. In this final conflict we learn the past of the “Jet Girl” program and the dark secrets that were hidden from our hero. A choice must be made by Audey/ Jet Girl while her views about the program and country are shattered. Only reading will you know what decision she makes for her future and involvement in the Jet Girl program.
As already happened in the past, even for Iron Man 3 will be available for collection of 3D glasses.
The glasses will be distributed in some selected cinemas, of course fee still do not know the price. One of our readers sent us a preview of a screenshot that shows the four different types of glasses: War Machine , Tony Stark , Iron Man and Iron Patriot !
Here’s the synopsis of the film:
The new Marvel movie Iron Man 3 sees the brash and brilliant industrialist Tony Stark / Iron Man fight an enemy without limits. When Stark sees his own world destroyed by the hand of his enemy, will undertake a harrowing quest to find those responsible. It will be a company that will test his courage at all times. With their backs to the wall, Stark will have to survive without the devices created by him, trusting only his wits and instinct to protect the people he loves. While it found all the forces to react, Stark finds the answer to the question that has always secretly persecuted is the man who makes the armor or is the armor that makes the man?
With Robert Downey Jr., Gwyneth Paltrow, Don Cheadle, Guy Pearce, Rebecca Hall, Stephanie Szostak, James Badge Dale and Jon Favreau and Ben Kingsley, Iron Man 3 is directed by Shane Black, with a screenplay by Drew Pearce and Shane Black and is based on the iconic Marvel superhero Iron Man, which appeared for the first time in 1963 in the pages of “Tales of Suspense” # 39, to debut later in 1968, with the first comic dedicated “The Invincible Iron Man “# 1
Sega is back in the game console business! Well, sorta. Okay, not really. But this is pretty cool anyway. The Tokyo-based gaming company is licensing out its iconic consoles to be branded on laptop computers.
The result is several Sega-themed notebooks: there’s the basic Sega motif, the Genesis Model, the Saturn version, and the Dreamcast one. Each of these see four different spec levels: the Light Model, which is ¥99,750 US$1,069; the Standard Model, which costs ¥131,250 $1,406; the High Spec Model, which costs ¥162,750 $1,744; and the pricey Premium Model, which lists at ¥194,250 $2,081.
Here are the PC specs.
Sega has been interested in doing laptop versions since the year before last, thinking they would be something diehards would totally want. And now, if you live in Japan or can import, you could totally get one.
The laptops have custom wallpapers, sounds, and screen icons. This better be the boot up music.
The continuation of Warner Bros.’ Batman Arkham series seems as sure as everyone’s favorite costumed vigilante brooding atop a gargoyle statue in a pose of solitude. In a call to investors (via VG247), the publisher rather offhandedly states that an additional Arkham will swoop in sometime this year.
“And we also have a strong games release this year, which will include the next release in the Batman Arkham franchise,” Warner Bros. CFO John Martin says. “So all in all, we expect Warners to post another very strong year in 2013. And with a little luck, the year should be as good or maybe even a little bit better than 2012.”
Details for Arkham 3 are unknown, but VG247′s “own sources” claims developer Rocksteady isn’t involved. Whispers of a prequel plot taking place during the 1950s-1970s Silver Age era of Batman’s saga were passed around since last summer and hinted of showing Batman’s first encounter with The Joker—who, devoid of comic-book writer Frank Miller’s psychological themes, might revert to his more campy origins. On a more nerdy note (pushes up glasses), the Silver Age marks the first appearance of Arkham City mastermind Ra’s al Ghul, so that could potentially factor into the “first meetings” angle.
