Hey guys I'm heading out to the Magic Kingdom for the weekend so I probably won't be posting much but I'll be back at it on Monday. I might post a couple of pics if I run across anything I think you guys might find interesting. Anyways, Have a great weekend Nerd Nation!
Captain America: The Winter Soldier is a little less than a month away and the more I see for this film the more excited I get about it. I was never the biggest Captain America fan, but I really like Chris Evans portrayal of Capt. Steve Rogers. This movie looks pretty exciting and I was surprised to see a certain famous MMA fighter making an appearance in this film. Most of you should know who he is when you watch this preview. Also, I think it's cool that they are introducing Falcon although his and Captain's suits are just a little bit too tactical for my tastes. I get that bright red and blue tights would probably ruin the look and feel of this movie, but something a little more reminiscent might have been nice.
Some things you can't walk away from...like a bullet to the head.
This is an awesome trailer that finally gives us an idea of who the main character is in the highly anticipated game Watch Dogs. For months we've known little about Aiden Pearce other than he had a magic smart phone that seemed to link him to every electrical device within the city of Chicago. Now we finally understand that this is about much more than a simple hacker gone rogue. Aside from good gameplay, the makings of a great game is to have a story line that really engages the player and takes them on a highly immersive adventure.

Have you ever watched an anime and saw a vehicle that you wished was real? I know I have, and one that sticks out to me is the one wheeled motorcycle that is depicted in the original Dragonball anime series. Well if you think owning something like this would be pretty cool, then you are in luck. A company called Ryno Motors has developed a fully functional single wheeled machine. I think most of us would assume that something like this came out of Japan, but most of us would be wrong. The Ryno as it is called was made right here in the US.

Wow...after all the build up and hype I have to say that this trailer was very under whelming. You guys know me by now and you know that I am a Transformers purest and snob. "I knows what I likes" and unfortunately this is not it. So before I go on a crazy tirade about how terrible this movie looks I will say that I will probably take my kid's to see it because they will love it as they have the last ones. However, I take comfort in knowing that they like the original 1984 animated movie better as well as the series both generation one and two.
Now I know what you're probably thinking. I lured you guys here with the thought of seeing a small sleek Back to the Future style hover board, only to crush your hopes and show you some bulky and ugly hover craft. Well Nerd Nation I would not do that to you. I in fact brought you here to check out a company named "Huvr" that is claiming to have finally developed the technology to give us a real movie style hover board. In my opinion this is either the greatest day of my inner child's life or someone is playing a very sick and cruel joke on us.
Ok, I'll be the first to admit that I did not play Arkham Origins and honestly I've heard mediocre reviews at best for that game. The initial trailer was pretty impressive with Death Stroke and Black Mask but from what I have heard from friends and other respected reviewers, was that Arkham Origins failed to deliver a unique gameplay experience on almost every level. I hate to say it, but that's what you get when you hand over an already impressive franchise to a different company. Again my motto on these types of things is always "If it ain't broke, don't fix it."

Bio Hazard The Real...This actually looks pretty damn cool and I wish I could say that this was something that was featured at one of the US Universal Studios theme parks. Unfortunately it is actually an attraction at the Universal Studios in Osaka Japan. The attraction is based on Resident Evil the video game (not the movies) where guests can go through a recreation of the initial out break event in Raccoon City. Essentially it is a haunted house where players can actually fight back against the things that are attacking them. Each person gets a gun and an interesting looking arm band that looks like it keeps track of your ammunition and zombie kills. The sets themselves actually look pretty good and so do the Zombies.
