Following the leak of this news earlier today, Sony has now made it official with a posting on thePlayStation blog which confirmed the reports – Sony’s PlayStation Now service is making the jump to Windows PC.

PS Now is a subscription service that lets you stream hundreds of PS3 games. It is currently available for PS4, but will finally be available on Windows PC.

When it is, it will bring with it a wide selection of PlayStation exclusive titles that have never been available on the platform before such as the “Uncharted,” “Infamous,” “Killzone,” “God of War” and “Ratchet and Clank” franchises along with acclaimed one-offs like “The Last of Us,” “Heavy Rain,” “Journey,” “The Unfinished Swan,” “Catherine” and “Shadow of the Colossus”. It will sadly not include PS4 exclusive titles though like “Uncharted 4,” “Bloodborne,” “Infamous: Second Son” and “Until Dawn”. Continue reading

In a few months Tony Stark will be hanging up his Iron Man mask in the Marvel comics, with 15-year-old tech wiz Riri Williams taking his place as the star of the “Invincible Iron Man: comic line.

With that change though comes an understandable change of name. Wired has revealed that Riri will be taking on a new moniker – Ironheart. Series writer Brian Michael Bendis says the name was suggested by Marvel’s chief creative officer Joe Quesada:

“Iron Woman seemed old fashioned to some Iron Maiden looked like a legal nightmare. And Ironheart, coined by Joe Quesada, after I told him my planned story for Riri, speaks not only to the soul of the character but to the Iron Man franchise as a whole. Tony first put on the armor to save his heart. Riri puts it on for different reasons altogether but still heart-related. When people see her story, you’ll be amazed at how simple and brilliant Joe’s suggestion was.”

Tony won’t be gone from the series though. The site says that the A.I. in Riri’s suit will be based on Tony’s personality, acting as her support when she’s out and about. The Invincible Iron Man #1, which won’t change its title for now, will be out this Fall.

Holy nostalgia, Batman! The caped crusader is returning to his 1960s television roots in a new animated feature film Batman: Return of the Caped Crusaders, featuring the voices of Adam West, Burt Ward and Julie Newmar.

In the exclusive trailer Batman and Robin are seemingly on their way to a fiery death when the news that a new animated feature is on the way sparks a brilliant escape plan. West’s Batman also teases the film’s villains, including the Joker, Riddler, Penguin and Catwoman.

The classic Batman television series, which ran from 1966 to 1969, saw West’s Batman and Ward’s Robin face off against such villains as Newmar’s iconic Catwoman.

Fans can follow the bat signal to their favorite online and retail stores for Batman: Return of the Caped Crusaders, from Warner Bros. Home Entertainment and DC Entertainment, when it’s released for Digital HD on Oct. 11 and Blu-Ray on Nov. 1.

Luke Cage – Main Trailer

Every so often, geeks get a chance to have an epic experience meeting their heroes and idols.  If we’re lucky, we accidentally bump into them at conventions and have a brief, flustered moment where we blurt out things like, “OMGILOVEYOUYOUAREMYHEROPLEASESIGNTHISICANTBREATHEWHATSMYNAMEAGAIN!?!?!

Oh …maybe that’s just me?

ANYway…

Rare is the moment when a true fan is able to immerse themselves in the culture of their favorite thing in a small room where the creator can be seen casually wandering around, the voices of your idols are willing to take photos and listen to you no matter how flustered you sound, and the friends and family of cast and crew are hanging out as though they’re just regular folks, totally approachable and kind to everyone.

Guys, my five year old got to have that moment.

That’s right, my five year old had that golden experience most fans wait lifetimes to have.  It took place at Gallery Nucleus in Alhambra last night at the opening of the #FarewellToTheFalls exhibit, dedicated to the two-season hit on Disney XD; Gravity Falls, created by Alex Hirsch.

Everyone always says that they don’t have enough time. Or that it is hard to set aside time to create, write, or draw. Well, we are giving you that time. You don’t have to stay all 24 hrs. Hell you don’t even have to come. But if you are tired of trying to find the time to do the things you want to do then come on down and use this as an excuse.

We have created these days because we love to be around creativity. During our 24hr days it has become apparent that artists and writers and creators feed off of each other. It has also been a great opportunity to get help with anything that you have been stuck on or just getting others opinions. It’s a fantastic environment to just create. Continue reading
