Skeletor just wants to sell you a compact SUV

Ever since they stopped selling the Accord wagon I haven't really had much interest in buying a Honda but Skeletor here makes a pretty good pitch. My car doesn't have a back up camera at all. How am I supposed to tell if He-Man is behind me? Check my mirrors like an idiot. Nice try, Orko.

The Last Starfighter: The Modern Trailer

Hooweee, this "new" trailer for The Last Starfighter is a straight punch to the old nostalgia kidney (the most sensitive of all kidneys). I've always felt like The Last Starfighter gets lost when you're talking about classics from the 80s. I know the special effects don't hold up at all, although considering this was CGI from 1984 they're kind of amazing, but the story is so good. I'm kinda surprised no one has tried to remake it. With the technology they have today I bet it wouldn't even cost very much to make. Ride that nostalgia train all the way to the bank, baby. Choo Choo!

Pitch Perfect 2 is a thing with a trailer

Pitch Perfect is one of those movies that was a HUGE hit in the theater and all my friends wouldn't shut up about it and by the time I finally saw it on an HBO free preview weekend I was a bit disappointed. Kinda like Bridesmaids... Still here's a thing I know Ben will be excited about. Enjoy!

WWE 2K15 is Body Slamming my Budget

Sweet Christmas, the launch trailer for WWE 2K15 looks amazing. Cesaro in a motion capture suit? Yes please.

I'm not going to front, I'm pretty jelly right now of my PS5 and Xbox One brothers and sisters right now. I thought a Wii and a PC would cover any video game needs for the next couple years but THE NXT CHAMPIONSHIP IN A VIDEO GAME? That's something I didn't know I wanted until I saw it.

Short Stack of Links

Cinemax Producers Get The Greenlight To Sue An Actress For Reneging On A Nude Scene. How on earth could someone sign up to do a show on Cinemax called Femme Fatales and expect that you're getting out of there fully clothed? Every once in a while Dish Network provides us with a free preview for Cinemax and it can be rather jarring. Cinemax-W will be showing the Avengers or the Hunger Games or something and then Cinemax-E will be showing the Boner Games. If the family hasn't gone to bed you better be quick with the clicker. The other day I was watching something and my son asked me why the people on TV we biting-kissing. That's a weird conversation to have with a 5 year old.

This Wooden All-in-One Neo Geo Arcade System Is an Absolute Work Of Art. Oh man, I want to do something like this so bad. Look at that thing. There was a guy on reddit that took an old arcade cabinet and turned it into an emulating monster and it looked HELLA complicated.

I should look into retiring early. I need more time for projects.

Examining Jim Sterling's Grand Experiment To Create Video Game Journalism Utopia. You probably don't know who Jim Sterling is but he's a video game reviewer that has a decent sized fan base. I used to read a lot of his reviews over on Destructiod. One of the reasons I liked his reviews is because he clearly gave no f's. He would give COD Black Ops a perfect 10 because he actually liked it but then he would give Mario Kart 7 like a 2 because Nintendo don't own him. In a world where even shitty games get 7s or 8s just because they're major releases it was refreshing.

Anyway, he's doing this thing on Patreon where he's asking viewers/readers to effectively pay his salary so he can keep reviewing games independent of any website. It's an interesting idea and one that might have a much larger impact on video game journalism that any group of gamergaters could hope to have.

Marvel is literally covering their asses

Remember a couple months ago when Spider-Woman's butt felt like the biggest story in comic books? Well Marvel has finally decided on a cheeky solution to the controversy. They covered Spider-Woman's ass with the title (pictured above). I guess everyone can go back to complaining about the shit-show the Fantastic Four movie is turning into. Nothing to see here.

Retron 5 Console Review

I want to say that last year I wrote a little blurb about the Retron 5 (or maybe it was the 4) but I never really followed up on it. At first glance a console that plays NES, Famicom, SNES, Super Famicom, Genesis, Mega Drive, Game Boy, Game Boy Color, & Game Boy Advance cartridges with an HDMI output seems like a really f-ing awesome thing. Of course the devil is in the details and some of those details aren't even like details, they're anti-details.. entails? Whatever, this review by Lord Karnage is pretty good. Check it out.

Ted Cruz doesn't understand Net Neutrality... Is terrifying

So a few days ago Ted Cruz made some headlines by claiming that Net Neutrality was Obamacare for the internet because I assume he believes his constituents are all idiots. A few people called him out on talking like an nutjob and so he did what any member of the Senate subcommittee that regulates communications, technology, and the Internet would do. He posted this video on youtube that demonstrates very accurately how deep he is in Verizon and Comcast's pockets.

It boggles my mind that as a nation we put people as woefully misinformed as Ted Cruz is in charge of anything more important than an Arby's morning shift. And that's not just a Republican thing, there's a local "socialist" politician that once said the Boeing union workers should take over the manufacturing plants and start building mass transit instead of instruments of war. Because 787s be dropping bombs in Ferguson Missouri. I'm moving to Canada. No way they elect morons up there.
