Red Dead Redemption II Story Trailer

Oh My God, It’s finally here! It’s been almost a year since we last got some sort of information on the long awaited and much anticipated Red Dead Redemption 2 from Rockstar Games. In fact it was all the way back in October that we got a first actual look at the game in the form of a short teaser trailer. Just in case you need a quick reminder, click here to check it out. This time around we actually get a look at some of the characters that will be in the story and best of all, they gave us a tentative release date. Like most of you I have been waiting for this game to come out since I finished the original back on the Xbox 360. From what we have seen here it definitely looks like it is going to be worth the wait. 

Blade Runner Black Out 2022 Anime

Blade Runner 2049 is set to hit theaters in just a couple of weeks on October 13. It is the sequel to the 1982 science fiction classic starring Harrison Ford. Some of you may be wondering how a movie from 1982 will connect to a movie being released in 2017. The answer to that question as well as many others is of course…Anime! That’s right an original anime short titled Blade Runner Blackout 2022 has been created to connect the events of the 2 feature films. This is actually one of 3 short films that has been produced for the Blade Runner saga and it is directed by Shinichiro Watanabe, the genius behind Cowboy Bebop and Samurai Champloo.

Resident Evil 7 “Not a Hero” DLC Trailer

Chris Redfield is back and this time he is coming to Resident Evil 7. For those of you that may not have played Resident Evil 7 yet **SPOILER ALERT** skip this next sentence if you don’t want the ending ruined for you. At the end of Resident Evil 7 what looks like some special ops soldiers show up and rescue you from the house, and one of them turns out to be Chris Redfield. Now Campcom is releasing it’s latest DLC titled Not a Hero and it looks to be the story of what Chris and his team went through during the events of the game. However the best part about this DLC is that it will be completely free to anyone who already owns the gold edition of this game.

Marvel’s The Punisher Official Trailer

It’s finally here! Netflix has released the official trailer for Marvel’s The Punisher and it looks seriously kick ass. Just a couple days ago we got a short promotional video featuring Frank Castle making some soldiers pay for going after him. If you missed that then just click here to check it out. However, it’s not necessary to watch it before you check out the official trailer that we have posted below for your viewing pleasure. The trailer is definitely brutal in true Punisher fashion not to mention that it is set to the hard hitting sound of Metallica’s song “One“. All in all I’d have to say that this might be one of the most intense and exciting trailers for a Marvel Netflix original series.

Toys”R”Us files for Chapter 11 Bankruptcy

The first thing I have to say is don’t panic Nerd Nation. When I first read the news about Toys”R”Us filing for bankruptcy, I about lost my sh*t. Ever since I was a kid I have always loved going into Toys”R”Us stores and now having kids I love it even more. I’ve seen a lot of sights posting that Toys”R”Us stores will be closing their doors, but that is NOT true. At least not yet anyways. Had they filed chapter 7 bankruptcy then we would definitely be kissing their stores goodbye right now. Thankfully the toy store giant has filed for chapter 11 bankruptcy and the hope is that they will come out of this with a lot less debt, and once again be competitive in the ever changing retail market.

Sonic Forces Story Trailer

Sonic The Hedgehog is back with an awesome new adventure for consoles and PC. In Sonic Forces he and his friends must save the world from Eggman or Robotnic (as we in the states know him) and his army of evil robots. To be honest I am actually really glad to see Sega putting out a good looking Sonic game that looks exciting and somewhat reminiscent of the games for the original Genesis. Based on this trailer the story seems to be fairly compelling and the game play looks to be pretty fast paced as well as diverse. Not only does it look like a classic Sonic game, but it also has some visual elements of the Ratchet and Clank games. This might be the first Sonic game that I actually purchase in years. 

Brutal Punisher Promo Video

One of the best things to come out of the many Marvel series on Netflix was of course The Punisher played by Jon Bernthal. He debuted in season 2 of DareDevil and is now getting his own stand alone series set to premier sometime later this year. We were already treated with a pretty intense teaser that was released back in August and if you missed that then just click here to check it out. Well today Marvel released a short promotional video for the new Punisher series and it already looks pretty brutal. People should know by now that you don’t mess with Frank Castle or you’re gonna end up on the wrong side of an ass whoopin….or worse. 

TBT: Do You Remember “Event Horizon”

Right now the biggest movie in the country is a horror movie that just so happens to be a remake of a classic 80s movie. Of course I am talking about the movie IT and though it scared me as a kid, there is a different movie that I want to talk about today that scared and intrigued me even more than that one. I’m talking about the 90s sci-fi horror film called Event Horizon. For those of you that have never scene the movie I highly recommend that you check it out especially if you like science fiction, intriguing story lines, mystery, and lots of gore. In my humble opinion this is definitely a must watch for any horror fan or science fiction fan for that matter. Just be warned Event Horizon is definitely not for the weak at heart.
