Halo TV Series Starts Production in 2019

It’s been a long time since the plan for a live-action Halo TV series was first announced. 5 years is a long time to wait. In all honesty there was a point where I didn’t think that it was actually going to happen, but here we are with some exciting news. Showtime has officially ordered 10 hour long episodes for the first season, with production set to begin sometime in 2019. The series comes from director Rupert Wyatt (Rise of the Planet of the Apes), Kyle Killen (Awake), and Steven Spielberg’s Amblin Entertainment. There are so many exciting things that could be explored with this series, and I just hope that the people in charge have as much passion for this project as the fans have for the games. 

Ghost of Tsushima E3 2018 Gameplay Trailer

I first heard about Ghost of Tsushima back in December of last year when a teaser trailer was released during Paris Games Week. If you haven’t seen it or want to watch it again, then just Click Here to check it out. Since then I have been super excited to see more of this game and Sony finally came through with an awesome 9 minute gameplay trailer at this year’s E3. Personally I have been waiting for a detailed, open world, Samurai game to come to either consoles or PC for a long time. Ghost of Tsushima looks absolutely beautiful and I think Sony and Sucker Punch (developer) have really figured out the keys to making a game like this great. I can’t wait to battle enemies armed with my katana and code of honor.

Spider-Man E3 2018 Gameplay Trailer

For the last couple of years Sony has been teasing us with this amazing looking Spider-Man game. There is so much anticipation surrounding this game that they couldn’t possibly live up to all the hype…right? Well thankfully for fans it looks like this game is going to deliver on everything that it has promised and more. For those of you that have followed this page over the years, you know that I am a HUGE Spider-Man fan and can be very critical of how the web head is treated at times. However, this game really does look amazing, so much so in fact, that I am going to be upgrading to the PS4 Pro specifically for this game. A lot of people were able to get their hands on the demo at E3 and everyone is raving about it.

Gears 5 E3 2018 Trailer

Microsoft may not have come to E3 2018 with very many NEW exclusive titles for the Xbox One, but they did show up with the ones that mattered. Of course I am talking about the first official trailer for Gears of War 5! Marcus, J.D., Del, and Kait are back and this time looking even more bad ass in all of their Gears armor. The story seems to revolve more around Kait this time with Marcus, J.D., and Del playing more support characters. Best of all Microsoft decided to bring back split sceen co-op which we haven’t seen in a major AAA title in a long time. Personally thing makes me want to play this game even more. 

The Last of Us 2 E3 2018 Gameplay Trailer

This year’s E3 has been awesome and last night we got to see Sony’s press conference. Though the presentation wasn’t that great they showed off some really cool looking games, one of them being The Last of Us Part II. The last time we saw anything from Naughty Dog was last year in October when they dropped a really intense cinematic trailer for The Last of Us Part II. In case you missed it click here to check it out. However, this new trailer shows off some amazing looking gameplay footage that definitely amps up the intensity from the first game as well as some beautiful cinematics. I can’t wait for this game to come out and continue the story of Ellie and Joel.

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse Official Trailer

Back in December of last year we got our first glimpse of Miles Morales in a teaser trailer for Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse, click here to check it out. As cool as it looked we were left with a bunch of questions especially whether or not Peter Parker’s Spider-Man would be in this movie. We had to assume that Miles was not going to be the only web head in it since the movie was titled Into The Spider-Verse. Today Sony released the first official trailer and it looks awesome. I was already impressed with what we saw from the teaser, but now I’m even more impressed. For me though the best part was finding out that YES Peter Parker, the original Spider-Man, has a very important and prominent role in this animated film.

NECA Comic Con Exclusive TMNT Figures

If you are a fan of the original live-action Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie from 1990 then this post is definitely for you. NECA has revealed their exclusive TMNT figure set for Comic-Con International 2018 and it is awesome! The set includes all four of the turtles (Leonardo, Michelangelo, Donatello and Raphael), their weapons from the movie, as well as some other various accessories. NECA had previously released larger versions of these figures which ran about $150 each. However, the figures in this set are only 7 inches tall, fully articulated, and will only set you back $125 for the whole set. In all honesty these are probably the best looking TMNT figures I have ever seen.

Wreck-It-Ralph 2 Official Trailer

After all the waiting Disney finally released the first official trailer for Wreck-It-Ralph 2: Ralph Breaks The Internet. Just like the first movie there is already so many pop-culture Easter eggs through out this trailer that it’s enough to make your head explode. Of course Disney’s vast amount of other properties have some shameless cameos in this movie too, but I’m not complaining about it. However, one thing I couldn’t help but notice was the fact that Felix and Calhoun are nowhere to be seen in this trailer. I wonder if they will be in this movie at all or maybe only referenced a few times. Still, it’s hard to believe that it’s already been almost 6 years since the first Wreck it Ralph hit theaters.
