Live action X-men series is coming to TV


Nerdgasms
@ DAN-isms.com

Well it's been discussed for ages but it seems that Fox might finally be ready to bring X-men to the small screen.  A live action series is being written by the team that scripted Star Trek 3, Patrick Mckay and J.D. Payne, and even though the series is in the process of being written it is yet to be signed off on by Marvel, so it's not guaranteed, just likely to happen.

Youtubers pan new Nintendo affiliate program


Nerdgasms
@ DAN-isms.com

If you do game reviews or even just put  VODs of streams and put them up onto Youtube, you may want to pause before covering Nintendo games as they've put together a new affiliate program and if you're not part of the program expect your video's to get blocked.  Even if you are a part of the program,  a program that requires you to revenue share any money generated via advertising, it will take around 3 days to get the video reviewed and okayed by the Nintendo team before you can put it up.  That's a long time if you're viewing new games.

As far as I'm concerned, that's the end of Nintendo reviews for me.

Ever see a video and think "damn that would make a great GIF"?  Well now you can use Imgur to make quick and easy gifs from video files and streamed videos.  There are already a bunch of programs out there that do this but if you've got an Imgur account (like me) it's a wonderful new feature.

Grim Fandango remastered on steam


Nerdgasms
@ DAN-isms.com

When Grim Fandango came out it was considered one of the greatest games of all time and I have to admit, outside from the controls (which eventually made me quit the game) I loved it.  Well it's back, brightly revisualised with all new overhauled controls.  If you're into adventure puzzle games, it's definitely worth your time.

Twitch vs Steam Streaming?


Nerdgasms
@ DAN-isms.com

As a bunch of my buddies are streamers (shoutout to MagiktheGamer.com, Larkaro.com and Lucicelle.com) I thought this might be interesting to share.

A new function called Steam Broadcasting has been added to the Steam client which will allow you to stream games to your buddies on your friends list.  All you need to do is right click on a friend and select "Watch game" and if they accept it will start streaming their game to you.

Fantastic Four teaser is here




Nerdgasms
@ DAN-isms.com

I often say that I feel like I was born in the wrong timeline, like either 50 years too early or too late.  This is a perfect example of this, when I was kid they made all the movies for adults, now I'm an adult and everyone in action movies looks like they just entered puberty.

Sigh. Anyway, Fantastic Four reboot is here.  Checkout the teaser-ish trailer.

I should confess that I fail Twitter.  I'm fairly certain you need to be funnier or have more sex appeal than I do to be any good at it.  I've followed a series of celebrities and after a while I gave up cause it just seemed like mayhem.  Anyway, now you can add Video and Private group messages to Twittering...

Happy Australia Day!



It's Australia Day today, so like any great Aussie I'm going to drink German Beer, fry up some Polish sausages and play video games cause it's hot as hell outside.

How would you like to play with Holograms?





Nerdgasms

@ DAN-isms.com

Microsoft would like to bring you what it coins as an immersive holographic experience via a new headset called "Window Holographic".  The headset will overlay holographic 'pop-ups' over real world items.

Personally I find this exciting and terrifying as it looks like one step closer to the thing I've wanted since Star Trek The Next Generation, which is a holo-deck. What do you think, are you excited for the idea of Window's Holographic?

@ DAN-isms.com

How do you think your grandparents would react to playing Grand Theft Auto V?  I'm not sure how mine would but if they were anything like these guys, especially the guy and girl above who are my favourites in the video, I suspect we'd all spend more time with our elders.  While the video starts off slow, give it a chance, the further they get in the game the more hilarious it becomes.

Damn I seriously wish I could track down these guys and buy them a beer!  Video below.

Fallout vs Skyrim




Nerdgasms

@ DAN-isms.com

Skyrim has sucked up more hours of my life just thanks to the pickpocketing skill than I should admit.  Fallout 3 would probably do the same if I could ever get it to work, but thanks to the world's worst tech luck and video card conflicts,  I've never been able to get it to run right.

However if you've ever wondered how a show down between the protagonists of either game would look, here's your chance to find out.

Citizens of Earth - political satire gaming FTW

Nerdgasms

@ DAN-isms.com

Until this morning I had never heard of the Atlus game Citizens of Earth (COE), but when I started reading it's pitch I got really excited.

COE let's you play the vice president of the world who goes home to his roots for some downtime in suburbia, when the planet is attacked by nefarious forces. Being your standard charismatic yet useless beauracrat you go forth the solve this problem the only way you know how, by getting other people to solve it for you.

COE let's you enlist the help of everyone in the neighbourhood, there are no NPCs in this game, everyone is an enlistable character that can be convinced to join your cause and fight and die for you.

Sounds awesome right?

Graphically it looks like crap though and top down scrollers make me pause.  Still it's only just been released yesterday and all the reviews say good things.  What do you think, worth giving it a try?

H1Z1 - Zombie apocalypse gaming bliss or the MMO survival next fail train?


Nerdgasms

@ DAN-isms.com

Thanks to the world's most unusual childhood, I've been preparing for the zombie apocalypse since I was about eight.  I mean, statistically, I don't think it will really happen... but at fourteen years of age I was making a mental note of scuba stores that might sell shark-mesh and chain-mail diving suits.  I mean, in the world where death comes with a bite, the guy with light-weight, rust-proof shark-mail is king.

Short version - Zombie survival games, particularly those that let you build a real defensible location - make me stupidly giddy with equal amounts of fear and joy.

Enter into this story H1Z1 - an early access zombie survival MMO set in a post apocalyptic world.

Blair Witch 3?


Nerdgasms

@ DAN-isms.com

Story courtesy MagiktheGamer.com

There isn't much in this world outside of standard dad stuff (see mortgage/kids etc) that scares the bejiggles out of me - The Blair Witch Project is one of those exceptions.

I never understand people who are scared of 'realistic' horror.  I mean, a guy with a knife coming at you might be more likely than a poltergesit... but how is that scary? I sleep with an axe under the dresser in my room.  A guy with a knife breaking into my house will know he has made a terrible error in freaking judgement when he finds an angry, tired, naked fat man charging at him with an axe.  But supernatural horror...

How do I axe a ghost?

When The Blair Witch Project came out they had done such a good job of the marketing it that I thought it was real. The DVD I'd watched with a friend was overdue but to take it back required walking several blocks in the dark and when my mate - another grown man - refused to walk with me, I paid overdue fees rather than leave the house.

The Blair Witch 2 by comparison was a clusterf*** of epic proportions, so you'll excuse me if I pause at the news that a Blair Witch 3 is on its way and am unsure how to feel about it.

Article courtesy MagiktheGamer.com

If you were a 90's kid and you didn't watch The X-Files, there was something wrong with you.  It is a show that I've rewatched multiple times, and outside of pretending the series ended when Duchovny originally left the show, I love every episode.

The people at  Fox are so happy with their reboot of the series 24 that they are looking to bring back the iconic X-Files with both of its original leading stars.

X-Men A Cappella

I'm an X-men late bloomer.  I didn't get into them until the movies came out and then went on a mission to play all the games and watch all the cartoons. Sadly my comic fandom was limited to Conan The Barbarian and Ducktales...

Still I knew there would be people out there who would crack a nostalgic smile at the A Cappella rendition of the X-men animated series theme song.

Will the Baldur's Gate spiritual successor live up to the hype?



Nerdgasms

@ DAN-isms.com

I'm pretty sure Baldur's Gate ended one of my first serious relationships, it was that good.  I won't go into specifics, but let's just say that at a critical moment in the game (which I had been playing non stop) my girlfriend, wearing nothing but a bathrobe, crawled under the desk and tried to... er... "get my attention".

I picked Baldur's... and re-entered bachelorhood not long after.

I've been giving serious thought to replaying the game series with my son and girlfriend, so when my buddy over at MagikTheGamer.com dug up the story on Baldur's spiritual successor "Obsidian Pillars of Eternity"... I kind of lost my mind a little.

The Expanse - Game of Thrones in Space?





Nerdgasms

@ DAN-isms.com

So I woke up this morning and my good friend MagikTheGamer.com had basically done all my Nerdgasms blog topics for me (nice!) and one of the things he dug up was the upcoming Scyfy show - the most expensive show it's ever done - touted as 'Game of Thrones in space'... The Expanse.

The trailer isn't bad, but what got me excited - truly, madly, deeply - excited, was the cast!

If you're a cult TV kind of human being there are going to be names and faces in this that will make you quiver in your nether regions.  Here's just a few of the familiar faces:

Daredevil coming to Netflix


Nerdgasms

@ DAN-isms.com

I almost missed this as a thing, I mean, really, how much more money can really be milked out of the Marvel teat?  Apparently a bit more.

Marvel announced that DareDevil will be coming to Netflix and while the Ben Afflek rendition of the blind superhero made me want to put my face in a blender I am still hopeful that this will turn out better than the movie. Charlie Cox (who?) will play the part of Matt Murdock.

Teaser for the show below:

Nintendo Direct News


Nerdgasms

@ DAN-isms.com

I want to point out that I stopped being a console gamer (outside of FIFA) and moved to PC in about...oh... 1997-ish.  Yeah.

Short version, I had never heard of Nintendo Direct which is apparently a Youtube channel where Nintendo tells you everything you need to know about upcoming nintendo stuff for the Wii, WiiU, 3DS, DS and any games they are doing.  If you are a Nintendo gamer though their videos are awesome sauce, check this one below:

Is the death of internet freedoms inevitable?


Nerdgasms

@ DAN-isms.com

CISPA has reared it's head again, it's a piece of American legislation that was already struck down once and is now rearing it's head again, barely reworded, and would place Internet Service Providers in a position where they are 'encouraged' to share your private data with the government.

Australia basically already has this in place, with data being held for several years by ISPs and the government can access it for any reason that they deem to be of interest to national security.

Still if you're in the US, you may want to know more about this CISPA - article here.

Dying Light Parkour video

@ DAN-isms.com

I am man-moist for the idea of the upcoming game Dying Light in a fashion that cannot be appropriately put into words.  I also happen to be a fan of parkour, though I displace a hip every time I watch some of it because I suffer from old-man-fragility after years of playing way too much netball and soccer (yes my effiminate man-gina-ness reigns supreme, even in team sports).

The above video is a parkour recreation of the upcoming game.

"Booooo er... Yay?"

That was my reaction when I read that at long last my favourite X-men, Gambit, will at last be getting his own movie to be released October 7, 2016... but that Channing Tatum will be the lead.  Whaaat? Ok, don't get me wrong because I actually like Channing and write about him all the time in the CELEB-bait Boys Blog... but as Gambit?  Nooooooo.

Game of Thrones return date announced - also let's giggle at season 4 bloopers once more


Nerdgasms

@ DAN-isms.com

Let's get the first bit out of the way - HBO announced that April 12th will be the date that Game of Thrones returns to our screens for season 5.  As it's the biggest ratings show to ever be on HBO I won't be surprised if GOT goes for several more seasons after that, until it is well and truly flogged into the floor.  Personally I'd watch Peter Dinklage in just about anything, so long as he acts like his character on the show, but that's me.

Aside from that, I've included the seasons 4 blooper reel from the show, it's been around for ages but I like to keep going back to it and watching it becuase it's that funny - enjoy :)

The Antman Cometh, new teaser trailer


Nerdgasms

@ DAN-isms.com

Antman has appeared as a topic of conversation a couple of times now in our little Nerdgasms category.  I'm somewhere between excited and 'meh' which is a very broad scale to grade on.  I think it's because it stars Paul Rudd and I've never seen him in a serious role.  Who knows, maybe he's awesome in this.  I kind of feel if he doesn't do something awkward or stupid in this movie, I'll be impressed at the step up from his usual character.
