“Day breaks over a landscape consecrated by blood and steel. A battle begins as a new dawn rises.” Along with the cinematic trailer, a dedicated mini site was put up where you could find a behind the scenes video,concept arts, and a ton of wallpapers. Could this mean the updated Summoner’s Rift is closer to release then expected? Or is a new mode being established? Either way after I clean up the mess I made of myself from watching the trailer, I needs ma League of Legends fix. See you guys in game!!!
I’ve been playing Pokemon since I was old enough to hold a Gameboy in my little hands. It’s apart of me, and I think I’ll still be playing Pokemon when I’m 100.
Since the release of the latest games X and Y, there are officially 718 Pokemon! With that many to chose from, it’s hard to pick favorites.
But that’s exactly what I’m going to attempt to do! Here’s a list of my 10 favorite Pokemon!
Unturned is a Early Access Zombie Survival Free-2-Play on Steam that is developed by Nelson Sexton. Unturned is very fun and addicting but doesn’t have the best graphics. I was never a gamer that needed high graphics so Unturned didn’t bother me at all with its blocky look.
When you first play Unturned you think it will be a childish game and not fun for the older gamers but it is very complex in weapon customization and the survival aspect, plus it’s super bloody! Shooting a zombie up close with a shotgun almost covers the entire room in blocky bloody goodness!

With the newest Smash Bros game on the horizon, there have been many predictions to which characters would be added. With characters like The Villager, Wii Fit Trainer and Mega Man, the selection is diverse and will definitely make for some interesting battles!
Since many of the new characters and past ones have been from different companies (Sonic, Snake), if you could choose any character from a video game to add to the roster, who would it be?
Here’s who I would add:
-Spyro (Spyro the Dragon)
FX studios has released the first official trailer for the new and final season of their hit tv show, Sons Of Anarchy. The teaser doesnt really show much, all it is is just the main character Jax, cruising on his chopper at night and as his face goes bright to dark due to the street lights, his face flashes from human to skeleton and back to human. Im speculating that either he might die or he will kill very important characters from the show. A reason for my speculation is because the title for this teaser is “Hell Awaits”. I cant wait for this new season to come out which is set for a release sometime in September in this year’s tv show season. Check out the teaser below and give me your thoughts on what it might mean for Jax in the comments.
Far Cry 4 Accolades Trailer shows more of the world you can explore and it looks absolutely stunning!
Halo 4 has multiple armor abilities that can give you a great advantage during multi-player, and everyone has their favorites. I’m going to rank the different armor from what I consider most effective to least effective.
Regeneration field: My favorite, this creates a bubble around the spartan to heal you and nearby teammates. I have my spartan configured to have unlimited sprint, so this along with the regeneration field works effectively. You can sprint away from enemies if your health is low, heal yourself, then be fully restored by the time the enemy comes around the corner expecting to finish you off.
Warner Bros. and USA Today have released the first official image of the man of steel’s official look for the highly anticipated movie, Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice. The image has more of dark and gritty feel to it that was not present in last year’s Man Of Steel which was more of a bright, clear-cut hero. I can definitely see Zack Snyder’s new take on the DC superheroes. It’s a bold new take that fits very well in this new imagination of the DC characters that was not there initially. This could be a new version of Superman that has not been done on film before, this could be a darker Superman due to the aftermath of THAT decision in the end of the Man Of Steel film. All we can do now is just wait and see until we get more footage and images of the film. Enjoy the picture below and let me know in the comments below what you think.
Borderlands 2, an RPG first person shooter game released in 2012 received critical acclaim, and was one of the best selling games of the year. But what about the first Borderlands? With recent news regarding a pre-sequel to the series and a spin-off title, “Tales from the Borderlands,” where should you start?
Most people jumped into the second game without playing the first game. But most of BL2 is built upon the background of the first game. In my opinion, to understand the storyline, references and jokes the game makes in the second, you must begin with the first game. The first game establishes the universe and personality of the game.
Universal and Legendary pictures have released the official trailer to their upcoming movie Dracula Untold. The movie is based on the novel Dracula by author Bram Stoker which was published in 1897 and it will also be a reimagining of the 1992 film, Bram stoker’s Dracula which featured Gary Oldman as Dracula. Dracula Untold will star Luke Evans as Vlad III Tepes, the man who became Dracula, in the titular role. I am beyond excited for this movie because I have been a really big fan of Dracula ever since i read Bram Stoker’s novel back when I was in 7th grade. I have seen almost every adaptation of the character that has been made from Nosferatu(1922), to Dracula(1931), and Bram Stoker’s Dracula(1992). So when I heard Universal and Legendary Pictures were releasing this one I was excited because i get to see a newer, different take of the same character. Dracula Untold is set for release on October 17th, 2014. just in time for Halloween too. Enjoy the trailer below.
This update has been on Experimental for some time now but it’s finally off to Stable. This update includes new weapons like the AKM and The Long Horn. It also includes new outfits like police outfits and new military grade gear.
Paramount Pictures and Nickelodeon Movies have released a brand new trailer for their upcoming movie Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. A voting contest was held on Twitter where fans can use vote for their favorite turtle using #Team(name of turtle) and once each name reached a certain amount of votes, the studios released an individual exclusive poster with said turtle doing their own pose. After all posters were released they promised to reveal a brand new trailer for the film which you can see below along with all four posters. I am so pumped up for this movie after watching this new trailer, which is infinitely better than the first trailer released back in April. It shows a lot more action, a lot more plot details, and a whole lot more turtles which is what we all wanted to see. The film is set for release on August 8th, 2014. Enjoy the trailer and posters and let me know in the comment
