After a couple heartbreaking delays, CD Projekt RED has finally unleashed its magnum opus unto the gaming world – The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. The last two releases in the series have consistently raised the bar with their feature-rich gameplay and mature plot elements, and this third and final instalment of Geralt’s adventures across a world mired in war and politics is an amazing experience that is miles ahead of its peers as well as its own prior entries.
The CW has totally done right by fans of DC’s superheroes lately.
The Flash, Green Arrow, Atom and more have enjoyed some great TV time as they save the world. So much so that the network has decided to pick up the upcoming The Flash/Arrow spinoff series, officially titled DC’sLegends of Tomorrow.
DC Comics’ chain smoking magic wielder/con-man enjoyed his first season on NBC’s Constantine. Since the season finale came to a close, rumors have spread about the show’s demise. At the moment though, there’s still a 50/50 chance this live action comic book show will come back or be gone for good.
The Muppet Show ran from 1976 through 1981, and stared, among others Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy, Fozzie Bear, and the always heroic Great Gonzo. Jim Henson’s group of puppets have been icons for near 40 years, and now thanks to Disney, a new generation of fans have fallen in love with Kermit and crew. ABC knows how much of a hot commodity the Muppets are, which is why rumblings of the network rebooting them for a new TV show are making the rounds.
Battlefield fans have had a lot to worry about since the announcement of Battlefield Hardline. The botched online servers for Battlefield 4, EA handing over the development duties to a team best known for working on 3rd-person horror games, and a strange new cops vs. robbers focus gave them ample reason to worry. After spending a hefty amount of time with this new take on the long-standing FPS series, I can firmly state that there is nothing to fear. Battlefield Hardline does right by its namesake and provides a new experience that’ll likely have you hooked.
Marvel and DC’s upcoming onslaught of superhero films is daunting.
Comic book fans of either brand have to be excited to see big screen adaptions of Deadpool, Black Panther, Wonder Woman, Aquaman etc. With all the big name characters out there, some were surprised that one of Marvel’s biggest blockbusters was Guardians of the Galaxy. It’s amazing to see how a superhero film based on a lesser known group of comic book characters raked in millions in revenue, and brought in a new flood of fans. And DC Entertainment and Warner Bros. have certainly taken notice.
A film based on DC’s Legion of Super-Heroes now is rumored to be in the works. Bleeding Cool reports that this movie is being approached with the idea of combining the best elements of Marvel’s The Avengers and Guardians of the Galaxy. Which gives us the impression that DC wants a massive superhero team up film that features a more humorous spin on their usual dark and somber offerings.
For those unclear about who this superhero squad is and what they do, here’s a brief summary; The Legion of Super-Heroes are based in the 30th and 31st centuries of the DC Comics universe. The entirety of this futuristic unit are made up of teenagers who have access to a variety of awesome powers. Perhaps the most interesting aspect of this team is their access to time travel, which opens the door for endless possibilities.
The Legion of Super-Heroes had their own animated series back in 2006. The more prominent members of the group include Lightning Lad, Saturn Girl, Braniac 5, Phantom Girl, Bouncing Boy, Triplicate Girl, Timber Wolf and Chameleon Boy. Sounds like the perfect DC Comics counterparts to Star-Lord and his band of allies. Let’s hope if the rumors behind this WB produced superhero film ring true, they can also replicate the quality seen in Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy.
