Overwatch Animated Short “Honor and Glory”

So far I have been very impressed with the Overwatch animated shorts from Blizzard. They have been really well done and look like something we’d see from Pixar Studios. This week was Blizzcon and for those of us that are fans of their games we were treated to some awesome new content. Some of that new content happened to be another animated short based on the origin story of the rocket-hammer wielding knight, that goes by the name of Reinhardt. Once again Blizzard did not disappoint and definitely delivered an emotional and entertaining back story for one of their most popular characters. Personally I haven’t played much with Reinhardt but after this I might.

Rick and Morty Old Spice Commercial

I was thinking about this and I sorta went back and forth about it in my mind. I feel Like Rick Sanchez is the type of guy that would totally sell out to a company to make some quick cash, but on the other hand he also seems like the type of guy who doesn’t place much value in money. Or at least not making it in the conventional sense. He doesn’t seem to care much about having money to do things on Earth so it seems sorta weird that he’d want to do an Old Spice commercial. Well despite how I feel about it (or any of us for that matter) a Rick and Morty Old Spice commercial is now a thing and it definitely does not take it’s self very seriously.

Star Wars The Last Jedi Official Trailer

Here we go Star Wars fans! We’ve been waiting anxiously to get another look at the latest Star Wars movie titled The Last Jedi. Just like Star Wars The Force Awakens, this trailer premiered during Monday night football. It was all the way back in April that we got our first look at The Last Jedi in the form of a teaser trailer. If you missed it or want to watch it again, then just click here to check it out. This time we get a much more sinister and mysterious looking trailer than the Force Awakens. I don’t want to say that the Dark Side has a big upper hand in this one, but it is definitely looking that way. Still, what else makes for a great story other than some serious conflict?

Awesome Stranger Things Video Game is FREE

The much anticipated release of the second season of Stranger Things is just around the corner.  The first season was so popular that it quickly became the most talked about series on Netflix. Part of what made the show so unique and popular was the call back to the 1980s that ran throughout the entire series. Keeping the retro theme going Netflix and game developer BonusXp has created an awesome looking Stranger Things mobile game that is FREE to play. The best part about Stranger Things The Game is that it was made with 8-bit graphics that definitely make you feel like you are playing a classic game straight from the 80s or early 90s.

Pacific Rim: Uprising Official Trailer

It was back in July when we got our first taste of the new Pacific Rim movie in a short teaser, but we didn’t really get to see any actual footage from the film. If you missed it, be sure to check it out by clicking here. Well here we are 4 years after the original movie was released and we finally get the first official trailer for Pacific Rim: Uprising. Once again the new Jaegers look awesome and the Kaiju look even more menacing than before. Also it appears that the humans are back to doing what they do best, which is of course fighting with each other. All in all this trailer is awesome and Pacific Rim 2 looks like it’s going to be even more intense and action packed than the first one.

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.

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. 

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.
