Sad news in hollywood today as actor Paul Walker has been reported dead today–best known for his role in The Fast and the Furious movies as the character Brian O’Connor — died in the afternoon of Saturday November 30th after a single-car accident and explosion in Southern California. Several sources close to the actor who are still at the scene of the accident report that Paul and another person in the car were killed. Law enforcement is still on the scene trying to figure out the cause of the accident. Sources close to Paul also said he was in Santa Clarita for a car show to support the Philippines typhoon relief effort, and had been taking friends out for rides in his new Porsche GT. The accident happened during one of those test spins and his rep confirms Paul died today in the crash after leaving the charity event. My condolences go out to Paul’s family and friends and may he rest in peace.

In an interview actor Frank Grillo, who will play the villainous Crossbones in the upcoming movie Captain America: The Winter Soldier, he revealed this tiny bit of awesome information. Firstly he pointed out his characters purpose in the movie.
“It’s an origin film. You meet people who are going to be around for a while, so they introduce the characters. It’s almost like it’s a series. It’s fun. I can’t say very much about it because Marvel’s very strict about what you’re allowed to say. The movie, we’ve seen bits of it, and it is spectacular.”

This deck is insanely fun to play with. Your main objective for a good Zombie Deck is to get as many strong monsters to the graveyard as possible. As you know zombies are very good for bringing monsters from the graveyard to the field (They are Zombies…. duh).
There are many ways to make a Zombie Deck BUT the best way to make a Zombie Deck is to get as many ‘Special Summon’ cards in your deck as possible and then add some powerful zombies here and there. I found myself only putting XYZ cards in the side deck because of the ability to special summon many monsters each turn.

Empire magazine has revealed today the cover for their next issue and i have to say it is awesome. It shows generic pictures of Mark Wahlberg, Jack Reynor and Nicola Peltz who will replace the main cast from the previous movies. But, the main highlight of this cover is the leader of the Autobots, Optimus Prime, and his brand new look. I think it looks amazing because not only does he look badass, but he is wielding a sword and shield combo that match his brand new awesomeness. But the front cover may also reveal some more movie spoilers. For example, the subtitle reads: “Detroit! Hong Kong! Cybertron!”. Now, when we consider we KNOW action for Transformers: Age of Extinction gonna go down in Detroit and Hong Kong, does the additional reference to Cybertron mean we’ll finally be heading there? Give me your opinion in the comment section below. Check out the picture and you be the judge. Do we love or hate Optimus Prime’s new look?

Tunnel Town, the wildly popular iOS app, has just released its Thanksgiving update – the largest update to the game since its launch earlier this year.
With over a quarter million downloads, Tunnel Town has been a top ranking iOS app for players of all ages. The first iOS game to let players design an underground world for virtual pets that is totally unique, entirely interactive, and all in 3D, is a tremendous success; and the latest update doesn’t disappoint. Since launch, seven new bunny species have been released, including the new, time-limited Autumn collection: Autumn, Plymouth, and Gobbler bunnies.
For those of you who delight in the sounds of chip-tunes and 8-bit computer music, Monodeer is a chiptune artist from Den Bosch. This Dutch city has a history of thriving underground musical subcultures within such as tekno, techno, acid and 8-bit oriented music.
With the release of his first EP on PXL-Bot called “NOISE.BMP”, Mark lastly stepped into the realm of dubstep rhythms combined with dark clouds of bass. His use of pan and reverb-effects to create spatial arrangements in the sometimes flat 8-bit spectrum can be perceived as most impressive. Early this year his lastest EP, “GLITCH POP”, was released. Tracks like Lost Chords and Doomcloud explore the edges of the 8-bit spectrum and make you forget all about the Nintendo associations you might still have at that point.
Congrats to our winners!!
