Cosplay of The Day

This is a seriously epic Tron Bonne cosplay. Looks like a ton of work went into this costume and it turned out pretty Bad Ass…and for those of you that don’t know her by name she might look familiar from a little game called Mega Man Legends and even Marvel vs Capcom!

X-Men Days of Future Past Official Viral Video

Watch The Video First!

Here we get a closer look at the Sentinel that will be featured in X-Men Days of Future Past…I hate to be an angry fan boy but I don’t think I like the new look of this thing. We finally get to see our favorite X-Men fight the giant Sentinel on the big screen and it looks like some sort of purple toy robot.  I was skeptical when I saw the picture of the head at Comic Con last week and it still looks just as bad. I can’t believe that the creators weren’t inspired to do something a little better even after seeing the giant hulking mechs from Pacific Rim. I mean even the sentinel head in X-Men last Stand looked better than this piece of crap.

I guess it remains to be seen what the whole thing will look like and if it can actually be a believable threat to the X-Men. As always let us know your thoughts and first impression of the new Sentinel look. Leave us your comments below or on our Facebook Page!

New Prices for Xbox One Accessories

Once again Microsoft doesn’t seem to be too concerned with winning any popularity contests for their next gen game console that hasn’t even been released yet. Yesterday they announced that the price for an Xbox One wireless controller will cost you $59.99 which is $10.00 more than the current Xbox 360 controller. It will run off 2 AA batteries like it’s predecessor, but if you wanted the recharge pack that will run you an additional $24.99. Xbox has said that only one controller will come packaged with the Xbox One which is pretty standard for gaming consoles.

However, I think the most annoying news is that the gaming headset will not be bundled with the Xbox One console but instead will be sold separately at $24.99. Microsoft has said that the decision to not bundle the head set with the console was because the Xbox Connect has it’s own microphone capable of voice chat. The only problem with that Microsoft is that now everyone in the room has to hear the 13 year old on the other end dropping F bombs every 5 seconds and the voices are never as loud as the rest of the game through regular speakers…but thanks for thinking of us.

Microsoft has also said, that they would be developing an adapter for universal headsets sometime in the future but you can bet your Sweet Ass that it’s gonna cost you a pretty penny. So not only is their console priced at $500.00 but if you want another “complete” controller and head set then that’s gonna cost you another $110. Even if you decide not to get the recharge kit you’re still looking at an extra $75.00 on top of your $500.00 console. honestly I can’t say I’m super excited about this news as Microsoft continues on their not so consumer friendly path.

Anyways, what are your thoughts on this Nerd Nation? Does this price jump bother you or were you expecting prices to go up with the next gen consoles? Let us know your thoughts below or in the comments section of our Facebook Page!
