X-Men: Days of Future Past, Trailer #3

I've been told by the internet that this is the last trailer for X-Men: Days of Future Past. I want to believe the internet but they're a pretty crappy source. It's always telling me ways I can make cash sitting at home and burn fat with one simple trick. Nice try Internet. Go sell your snake oil somewhere else.

As far as trailers go this one's pretty good. I'm not 100% sure it gives away too much of the plot or not. The overall story of one of the X-Men going back in time to stop a terrible future isn't that complicated but the fact that the movie combines both the First Class and the original Film's cast probably led to a few questions from some casual movie fans. I guess it's hard to fault the studio for releasing a trailer that spells things out with the subtlety of a hammer. Whatever, the movie still looks good. Hopefully I'll get to see this one in the theater.

Hello there Evolve

Evolve is a game I just heard about over at kotaku. It follows the team shooter format kinda like Left 4 Dead or that game on the N64 that I can't think of where one guy was a lizard and there was a female sniper. BRUTE FORCE! That was the name of it, and I think it was on the first xbox not the N64. I think I'm thinking of that Star Fox 3rd person shooter game for the N64. Man, the controls for that game sucked...

But back to Evolve. Evolve's unique hook in that each mission is 4 people hunting one monster, kind of a Shadow of the Colossus meets Battlefield. I could get into that. At the very least I'll be watching the scores when it releases. I'm due to buy my one game for 2014, this could be it.

Julien's Achilles Heel

Want to see a guy fail as hard as anyone has ever failed at Wheel of Fortune? Seriously, I remember watching this last week and I had to yell at my wife to get into the room. I watch a lot of Wheel of Fortune and I've never seen a guy have the puzzle complete and still get it wrong.. just amazing.

Nerf Gun War

This video of kids playing war with their fancy new Nerf guns takes a little while to get to the fireworks factory but when it does, oh baby. I might have to start buying some Nerf guns right now.

New Guardians of the Galaxy Teaser

The new Guardians of the Galaxy teaser (trailer? I don't even know anymore) is a lot like the first one. Still good.

BTW, I really hope in the final version of the film the guy at the end says "assholes" and not "a-holes". Assholes is funnier, the movie is PG-13, you should be able to say asshole and not worry about the children. Hell back in my day you used to be able to show boobs and drop an f-bomb in a PG-13 movie. We're living in a post internet world if you think 13 years old haven't heard some swears and seen some boobs you need to hang out in front of my house when all the jr highers are leaving school.... wait a minute that didn't sound right.

Batman: Strange Days

Bruce Timmm, the animator/artist who was mostly responsible for the look of Batman: the Animated Series, made a short film in honor of Batman's 75th anniversary. I'm digging the long ears and the short gloves, very reminiscent of his original costume. In fact I was sort of surprised when he didn't pull a gun and just shoot Hugo Strange.

DC/Warner Bros just needs to throw a giant wad of cash at Bruce Timm and get him to produce an animated movie or maybe something like a 5 episode limited series. I've been watching some BTAS on amazon prime (even though the seasons are horribly labeled) and it really is the best take on Batman ever. In fact it's not just Batman. BTAS really has the definitive versions of most of Batman's supporting characters. Jim Gordon, Poison Ivy, Two Face, Mr Freeze, Harley Quinn, they're all perfect. Normally I'm not a big fan of artists going back to the well after so much time has passed but I'll make a huge exception for anything Bruce Timm wants to do.

Dungeons & Links

10 Dungeons & Dragons Tips From Dan Harmon and His Dungeon Master. When the kids are out of the house or at least old enough to not need constant supervision/help with their legos I'm totally taking up D&D. I've already got a t-shirt and everything. What more do you need? Dice? I have dice. Pencil? I've got a pencil. Imagination? Sure when I've been drinking I'm SUPER IMAGINATIVE.

The Millennium Falcon. Do you have 60 seconds to read a really brief infographic on the Millennium Falcon? Well you are in luck then because I happen to have a link to just such an infographic right here.

Battlefield 4 Players Have Finally Found The Megalodon. This is pretty fun. Rumor had it that if you looked hard enough you could find a Megalodon in Battlefield 4. Well, that wasn't exactly true so the developers added one in the latest DLC pack. You win this one Megalodon.

Art and Superheroines: Getting Sex and Cape Comics Right. I don't 100% agree with this article on sex and comic books (more specifically superhero comics) but I think it brings up a lot of interesting points. Comic Books have this really typical american puritanical approach to sex and violence that you see in movies and TV. Cleavage? Cool. Blood and Gore? Cool. Realistic depictions of sex? Whoa there's pervert. Think of the Children!

Also he talks about Empowered a lot which is cool. I like Empowered. I'm only like 7 trades behind but I swear I'll be picking more up any day now.

Nvidia Watch Dogs Trailer

Over on reddit there's a subreddit called PC Master Race where they just make fun of consoles all the time. This trailer for Watch Dogs is one of the reasons why. Sweet Christmas this game looks amazing. The part about a minute in where the rain in hitting the wet bricks is amazeballs. I've been excited for this game since I saw the first trailer about 2 years ago but now I'm practically drooling over it. I think I'm going to start saving some money for a new video card right about now.
