Extended TED 2 Trailer arrives

Ted made me wet myself I laughed so hard.  Short version, I was thrilled to hear Ted 2 was on the way, watching this trailer fills me with childish glee.  Also I'd watch back to back hemorrhoids commercials if they all featured Amanda Seyfried, so knowing she's in the new movie hits my happy button.  Enjoy the trailer.

Be the Bat. New ARKHAM KNIGHT trailer arrives

@ DAN-isms.com

The Batman Arkham series is the best thing to happen to Batman ever.  I remember pretty much every Batman game before the series (and I own about 10 Batman games) and they were all tragic.  If Arkham Knight is anything like the rest of the series I can't wait for it to come out.

D&D tabletop gaming... via Steam?


Nerdgasms
@ DAN-isms.com

I was an avid Roleplay nerd, but then life happened.

As a kid I was always a solid book nerd first. I read every Choose Your Own Adventure and Pick a Path book, then moved on to Fighting Fantasy game novels.  When someone finally told me that you could play these kind of fantasy games with a group of people, where one person in the group actually drew up the story rather than having to buy a pre-written book, I was intrigued.  Warhammer Fantasty Roleplay was my starting point in table-top roleplay but I branched out to every other RPG I could get my hands on from there, including the grand daddy of them all - Dungeons and Dragons.

The problem with D&D and every similar RPG is that you drift from the people you played with, you all move, you go your own ways, you have kids, work etc  Finding the time to all meet at the same location for a session becomes more and more difficult.  However now thanks to Fantasy Grounds and Wizards of the Coast you can have remote live action roleplay sessions via a 3d tabletop D&D map and dice system availabe via steam.

Get ready for the POLTERGEIST remake

Nerdgasms
@ DAN-isms.com

Poltergeist destroyed me as a child, and considering the slew of movie remakes that have happened over recent years, I always wondered how it was possible that this movie was not the top pick for horror movie reboot.  Well, it's finally made the cut as it will be released in cinema's this May.

This is probably one of the quietest releases of classic movie remake ever. I had heard absolutely nothing about this until it appeared in a friends Facebook news feed - which is surprising as it's put together by the people who did Evil Dead and The Grudge - two of the greatest horror movies ever made.  The trailer above is a pretty good indication of what the movie will be like, but avoid looking at many others - the one I saw before this trailer basically gave away what I suspect is most of the good bits of the film.  Still, I'm excited for this movie.

The new CALL OF DUTY BLACK OPS 3 trailer is compelling

Nerdgasms
@ DAN-isms.com

Sci-fi no longer exists for me.  When someone does a new film or game with a pitch for a mythical possible future, all I see is actual possible futures.  Take Star Trek for example, every piece of tech that was pitched as a possibility back then is happening now or on it's way, so when I watch this COD trailer, all it does is amp my "government control is coming peoples" button.

Anyway, check out the trailer, it's sweet.

The new MAD MAX gameplay looks epic

Nerdgasms
@ DAN-isms.com

As an Aussie it is part of my national requirement to love Mad Max. You heard me correctly - if you don't love Mad Max and you live in the land of green-and-gold, it's time to GTFO.  Fortunately, I was a fan of the movies, the remake looks beasty as and the games appears to be magnificent.

If you check some of the footage above you'll notice very Batman Arkham / Mordor style combat, which of course we all love, a massive open world, versatile weapons and as is required for Mad Max - unique and interesting vehicles.

Personally, I can't wait to get my hands on this.

I assume this a still of what can only be freestyle break-dancing.

Full House reboot is coming to Netflix


Nerdgasms
@ DAN-isms.com

"Have Mercy..."

I have many times said that John Stamos (aka Uncle Jesse) is a man-vampire that never ages and that if I had lady-parts I would pogo-stick the hell out of him, so even if I wasn't nostalgically attached to the TV series Full House, I would be happy to see John back in television... also, Lori Loughlin was the first woman I ever had a TV drama crush on so seeing her again would give me odd adult feelings.

John announced via Jimmy Kimmel that Netflix has picked up the series for 13 episodes, with the pilot being a re-union episode with the rest of the series being a spin off following Candace and her sons.  For more details watch the video above.


Candice announced the series return via Twitter.

Are you ready for the STAR WARS: ROGUE ONE movie teaser?

Nerdgasms
@ DAN-isms.com

This trailer was released at the Star Wars Celebration weekend. It's not meant to be released to the public yet so it is terrible quality as it was recorded on someone's phone.


"IT'S TIME TO SNORT COKE AND ROLL IN MONEY!"
*Sounds of  morbidly obese naked men struggling to successfully roll over*

...Or at least that's what I assume the people at Disney are saying right now because they are about to beat the Star Wars drum for cash like... er, a drum. 

While everyone (including me) is getting giddy for Star Wars: Force Awakens, Disney has been busily beavering away on it's first film in it's anthology series Star Wars: Rogue One

I have this terrible, terrible feeling that this series is going to be based around the X-Wing book series written by Michael A. Stackpole that I found to be about as entertaining as being kicked repeatedly in the privates.  Don't get me wrong, the X-Wing books, and by association probably the movies, are essentially a remake of Top Gun, but in space and with X-Wings instead of jets and while I love Top Gun... the X-Wing books just didn't do it for me because there is only so many times you can read about barrel rolls before you go "Ok, I get it, they're in a spaceship, there's combat... could we have some plot to go with all this 'action'?" 

Who knows maybe when things are exploding in hi-def it will be more engaging.  The teaser trailer looks ok.

I apparently missed out on the part of your childhood where people read you bedtime stories, or where you can afford books... or food... or air... but The Little Prince is a story that changed many a child's life.  Apparently. 

I have no idea if the books is good or not but the comments that this video has been getting infer that this movie is going to rampage through people's childhood nostalgia in the best possible way; all I know is that I felt misty just watching the trailer.  Enjoy!

The cast to this flick is pretty impressive too.

The FANTASTIC FOUR trailer is here

Nerdgasms
@ DAN-isms.com

I have to say, the casting on the new Fantastic Four movie is growing on me.  At first I showed my age by thinking that everyone in the trailer looked like they were twelve but there are some serious acting chops in this mix.  If you're a fan of House of Cards then you're already going to be familiar with the work of Kate Mara and Reg E. Cathey. The personal standouts for me are Michael B. Jordan who made a big impression on me thanks to his role in the TV series Friday Night Lights, and I like Miles Teller, purely because I'm sure he's John Cussack's secret love child.

This is the official trailer for the upcoming FANTASTIC FOUR trailer, and it looks pretty decent.

Romero's Aftermath. Get a free copy of the zombie MMO

Nerdgasms
@ DAN-isms.com

Romero's Aftermath is a little bit infamous.  The game originally started out under the the title of War Z but then had to change it's name after it ran into trademark infringement issues, it then re-incarnated under the title Infestation: Survivor Stories.  Now it's essentially been redeveloped from scratch under the the heading Romero's Aftermath

The name Romero has a lot of power with zombie cult-horror-fans thanks to the many works of George R. Romero in this genre, a man who is ultimately considered the father of the zombie horror franchise - that however is not the Romero associated with this game, rather  the Romero in question is his son... Realistically that means this game should be called Son of Romero's Aftermath or Romero Jr's Aftermath, but I doubt the people in marketing thought that would sell as well.

On one hand I think "Ok, I get it. The market is flooded with zombie games and you needed a point of difference," but on the other hand, this just feels like cheap misleading marketing which makes me question the rest of the game. 

Still the game looks graphically appealing, the world is interesting and the gameplay looks decent.  

If you want to give the game a dig you can play it for free if you follow these steps:

New Star Wars The Force Awakens teaser and promo posters

Nerdgasms
@ DAN-isms.com

WARNING: Tiny spoilers

The internet devolved into fan-boy/girl frothing-at-the-gils this morning with the release of the second teaser trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens as well as several promo posters.  Most notable in new artwork and trailer are the new sexy advanced storm-troopers which may be a tip-of-the-hat to the dark-trooper program that Vader initiated while he was still alive.  If you've played the games, you'll have bumped into these guys before, they are elite storm troopers with dark force powers.

The other item of note is the inference that this movie might include Revan.  If you're a Star Wars gamer then Revan is basically your wet-dream come to life as he appears in the Knights of the Old Republic one and two as well as the Star Wars MMO - he's a light side jedi who goes dark and eventually becomes full on Sith.  Revan has particularly famous helm, and the light saber wielding force user that appears in all of the shorts is wearing that helm - but that is the only piece of evidence we have to insinuate it would be Revan.

Personally, I would dance if this was Revan, I freaking love him.

It also looks like the Skywalker kids of Leia and Han are front and centre as young adults in this movie.  Leia's kids become the next generation of Jedi thanks to Luke's re-establishment of the Jedi order through a small academy that he runs.

All in all it's a very exciting prospect of possible things to come.  I can't wait!

There's a gay warrior in the new Mortal Kombat?



Nerdgasms
@ DAN-isms.com

In the words of Eminem... “I don't care if you're black, white, straight, bisexual, gay, lesbian, short, tall, fat, skinny, rich or poor. If you're nice to me, I'll be nice to you. Simple as that.” ... but it still came as something of a revalation to me when I found out one of the ensemble cast of fighters in Mortal Kombat X is homosexual.

Do I care?  Not really, but I know plenty of "for-the-love-of-jesus" types that probably will. Don't get me wrong, you have to pick up on some subtleties to figure out the character is gay, but it's definitely there.

Kotaku.com had this explanation:

Kung Jin—a one of the new Shaolin Monks fighting for Earthrealm—appears to be the first gay male character in Mortal Kombat. The revelation comes during a flashback cutscene.

Relevant dialogue starts at about 3:30 in the video above, where Raiden says, “Self-loathing has always been an unfortunate part of your make-up.” Later, after the thunder god tries to get Kung Jin to follow in his ancestors’ footsteps and become a warrior monk, Kung Jin says, “I can’t... They won’t accept...” Raiden—who knows what the young mortal’s talking about because, well, he’s a god—replies by saying, “They care about only what is in your heart; not whom your heart desires.”

The interpretation of this particular character beat—first talked up at Gay Star News— was seemingly confirmed in a tweet by NetherRealm cinematic director Dominic Cianciolo, where he said, “I see people are picking up on the subtle exposition contained in Kung Jin’s flashback. Glad we have observant fans!”

Prepare for the new LIVE ACTION 6-button Guitar Hero

Nerdgasms
@ DAN-isms.com

Guitar Hero had been one of my party staples for near on a decade thanks to copious amounts of alcohol and a big screen projector, so when they killed the franchise I was pretty bummed.  As you can you imagine, news at the resurrection and re-invention of the series as Guitar Hero Live, has got me pretty excited!

In the new take on the GH franchise the cartoony graphics are being ditched in favor of a live crowd and band made up of actors, all of who will respond to however you play. Play well - they rock out - play bad, prepare for faces of displeasure.

The most important change is the reinvention of the keys on the guitar.  If you're anything like me, you're kind of pinky retarded so playing the five keys down the length of the guitar meant songs that required you to use your pinky often had you falling to pieces - from a realism perspective it also meant you played like you were using 'hammer-on's on a drop-tuned guitar rather than fingering down on strings.  The new guitar has six buttons set up as a three-button top row, and a three-button bottom row, adding complexity and the more realistic feel of pushing down with your finger tips instead of the flats of your fingers.

What do you think, are you glad to see the return of Guitar Hero or should it have stayed in the entertainment graveyard?

In the new guitar hero the buttons are stacked in two rows, not just down the length of the guitar

I'm sure this will be another role in which he can't lose.

The Sims may be one of the greatest time vacuums ever invented.  I have no real understanding why doing things in the Sims, that I loathe doing in real life, is strangely fun and satisfying in the game.  The latest Sims 4 addon "Get to Work" will let you follow your sims to works and more importantly allow you to run businesses from home.  For some reasons, this also introduces aliens as a race you can encounter, befriend and make a lovely home with.  Well, at least we're expanding the dating pool.

Firefly is one of those cult series that will not die, even though, really, it's dead.  The movies been done, the series was canned - but still - the fanbase keeps banging the Firefly drum like a true band of Browncoats that will not quit.

The good people at LootCrate are such fans that they created this incredible high-quality fan episode, set round a different crew, but in the same universe.  I have to say, if you're a fan of the franchise it is 100% worth the watch.

Ryan Reynolds confirms Deadpool movie will not crush your dreams

If there's one thing you can rely on, it's Hollywood taking your childhood dreams, removing their soul, and then smashing the remains into a PG13+ commercial for merchandising - occasionally this process is referred to as "movie magic". 

Anyone who's a fan of the Deadpool comics has been waiting with equal parts dread and hope that this will not be the fate of one of the most beloved dark comic series there is... and today Ryan Reynolds sold Deadpool fans the dream we didn't dare believe in.

The Deadpool movie will be a no-holds-barred R18+ affair.
