Back in April and in May, I professed my UNDYING love for a the mobile video game Marvel Contest of Champions and here comes the June installment of my continuing obsession with the game. LOL. I’m usually very proud of my nerdy geekdom but something about how obsessed I am with this game makes me none too proud to talk too much about the game. I play it every day. Like, multiple times a day. I’ve always like video games, as I may have made clear before, but there is something about this game that has kept me entertained since the first day I played it. BUT ANYWAYS, the point that I’m trying to get at is that I beat the game entirely, 100% yesterday … and I have to be honest and say that doing so had made me happier than I ever thought a video game could … haha, as sad as that may sound ;) More »
Not content with being the musical mastermind of one of the greatest groups in modern music or being an Academy Award-winning film composer, Trent Reznor is now composing music for video game trailers … like this one for Batman: Arkham Knight. Reznor has LONG been a fan of video game composition. Back in the mid-’90s, Reznor composed an entirely original score for the Quake video game, years before anyone else was seriously paying attention to video game music composition. I LOVE that TR is now working on the Batman video games because, honestly, I can’t think of a better pairing. Check out the Be The Batman trailer above to hear a new version of the Nine Inch Nails song The Wretched adapted for this video game see how well Reznor‘s music works in the video game world of Batman.

Last month I mentioned that I’ve been obsessed as of late with an iOS mobile game called Marvel Contest of Champions and I’m afraid I must admit that the obsession continues. I’m not usually a big video game person but when I find a game that I really love, I tend to lose my mind. And with a game that is updated on a weekly basis with fun new stuff to play for, like Contest of Champions, well … I can’t help myself. The last time I really went nuts was when I played in a multi-day tournament to win Daredevil as a playable character. This week, the Age of Ultron version of Vision has been made available so … I’ve been grinding in the tourney in order to win him. More »

I decided to keep my Monday plans loose so that I could come and go if I pleased and I ended up not doing anything at all. For the past few weeks, I’ve been really obsessed with a mobile fighting game app called Marvel Contest of Champions that I first learned about back in February. Since then, I’ve been playing and enjoying the game like a normal person … but after an update that added new characters to the game, my normal gameplay turned obsessive. With The Avengers: Age of Ultron opening in theaters soon, the game has been updated to include fun new content that is connected to the game … like the ability to use one’s Marvel characters to fight hand-to-hand with Ultron!

Back in January, I blogged about the forthcoming release of the latest installment in the Mortal Kombat video game series Mortal Kombat X which would be made available for mobile phones as well as video game consoles. Early this morning, at around 4AM, my friend Josh woke me up to tell me that the game had been released for iOS. In my excitement, I immediately downloaded the game and started playing … for about 2 hours … from 4AM to 6AM this morning. LOL. Needless to say, I’m a fan of the new version of Mortal Kombat … like a crazy person. More »

Happy Friday the 13th!
Remember back in January when we first learned that a new Mortal Kombat video game is coming our way this year? Well today, on Friday the 13th, we learn that Jason Vorhees — the hockey-masked killer from the Friday the 13th horror film franchise — will be a playable character when Mortal Kombat X is released next month. Previously, Freddy Krueger (from the A Nightmare on Elm Street horror film franchise) was a playable character in the last Mortal Kombat game released and now, Jason is getting in on the fun.

In October we saw the first trailer for the new Disney/Pixar animated film Inside Out and the second trailer came in December. Today we get to see the just-released latest teaser video for Inside Out, which will open in theaters on June 19. As you can see in this very cute TV spot trailer, the little voices inside our heads go through a lot on a daily basis … from happiness to anger to brain freezes. I really like all the promo we’ve seen from Inside Out thus far. Pixar generally can do no wrong so I’m looking forward to seeing this new movie when it comes out this Summer, are you?

Earlier this month I noted that the CW superhero TV series The Flash teased the forthcoming on-screen arrival of one of the DC Comics Universe’s greatest comic book villains — Gorilla Grodd — and today, we get official confirmation that Grodd will be coming to new episodes of The Flash very soon. The CW released a new teaser video that warns Grodd Is Coming and as you can see in the video embedded above, he will definitely be making his presence known in Central City very, very soon. The mere sight of Grodd on The Flash a couple of weeks ago reignited my interest in comic books again and I’ve been on a bit of a kick since then. I cannot EVEN tell you how excited I am that the powers that be at The Flash are bringing Gorilla Grodd to the small screen again. Fans of The Super Friends cartoon series of the ’80s may recall that Grodd was a main member of the villains group The Legion of Doom, but in 2D animated form. I’m hopeful that this CGI animated Grodd will do the character justice because he really is one of the greatest DC Comics villains of all time. This teaser doesn’t say when Grodd will be making his formal debut on The Flash but I think it’ll happen soon. And I cannot WAIT!
Please, DC Comics fans, you feel me? Tell me I’m not the only one super excited about the arrival of this super-intelligent gorilla villain.
This summer, the sequel film Jurassic World will be coming to movie theaters and to coincide with this very exciting event, a new video game based on Jurassic World is coming our way as well. But, instead of a scary, life-like video game adaptation we can look forward to an extremely cute, LEGO-form video game. Click the embed above to get your first tease of the forthcoming LEGO Jurassic World Game and see how much fun our summer will be when this game is released. OMG, I love this so much … don’t you?
