The Movies Behind Star Wars

As fans of Star Wars, we are all aware of the influences that spurred George Lucas into creating his masterpiece, Star Wars: A New Hope.  However, have you ever gone and watched these films?  Me neither.  However, below you can see the very films in a 2 hour compilation.  The video breaks down the pieces of each film that are borrowed, and placed within Star Wars.


Raptor-bot Is Here

Well, sorta.  BMG Kaist has developed a bipedal robot that actually BEAT the top speed of Boston Dynamic's cheetah robot (which Nathan and I talked about in an episode last year).  This thing is actually a bit more terrifying than the cheetah robot.

If you really want to see this thing in action, check out the video below!

New Stargate Films

Roland Emmerich, the director to the original StarGate film, is onboard to direct two new films in the franchise.  The big question remains to be answered...are these films directly related to the original film, or are they connected to the SG-1 universe?  At one point a few years ago, Emmerich stated that he did not like the SG-1 series, at all.  He stated that if he were to direct a sequel to the original film, it would be just that, a sequel to the original film.  He would not make ANY reference to the content of the SG-1 universe, including Atlantis and SG-U.

Atari Games From The Dig To Be Sold

Game Informer has released information regarding the Alamogordo, New Mexico excavation of the infamous E.T. burial site.  The State of New Mexico is going to be selling 700 of the 1,300 copies recovered from the dig site soon.

Before doing so, they will have the copies reviewed, and certified first.

Do you love Star Wars?  How about Robotech?  How about a mash up of Star Wars in the anime style of Robotech?  This short 2 minute video has it all!  Go Empire!

Doctor Who Time Warp

Do you like the song "Time Warp"? Do you like "Doctor Who"? How about a parody that mixes the two together? This is a definite WIN-WIN!

This parody was created by The Hillywood Show on YouTube.  They are a comedy troupe that does a lot of parodies of geek-centric themes.  This is probably my favorite, just because...ya know, Doctor Who!

CW's The Flash Extended Trailer

Honestly, if you haven't seen this yet, you obviously do not know what the internet is.  CW will be releasing its new DC television series for the fall season, The Flash.  From the look of things, I am actually quite excited here for what will come.  This extended trailer has gotten some responses for giving away quite a bit from the pilot.  However, it certainly gets on interested!

New Flashback Consoles at Toys R' Us

Toy's R' Us is releasing the Intellivision and ColecoVision flashback consoles! These two machines are based on the original hardware, come packed with two controllers based on the original designs, and 60 packed in games! Unfortunately,there are still NO cartridge ports on this, just like the Atari Flashback consoles. All three lines of Flashback consoles are made by AtGames. When are they going to finally realize that we retro fans really want a flashback console that actually has a cartridge port on it so we can play our existing library?

Xbox Paywall Lifted for Streaming Video Services

As of now you can watch Netflix, Hulu Plus, and other streaming services on your Xbox 360 without the need of an Xbox Live Gold account.  This appears to be coming along thanks to pressure from set top devices from Google, Amazon, Roku, and the new Amazon Fire TV boxes.  PS3 has allowed for streaming of these services since they were introduced on the console without the need to pay additional subscription fees, unlike the Xbox 360.  With this, does this make you interested in owning an Xbox 360 if you don't already?

Arcade Attack

Back in 1982, there was a documentary short about PinBall games and the rise of the arcade games that were flooding the American arcades.  This video is very obscure, and a remnant of the early 80's culture of arcades.

Teaser Image of New Batman

Check it out! A teaser image of Ben Affleck in the new Batsuit standing in front of the Batmobile. The suit appears to be a variant of the suit from the Frank Miller classic "The Dark Knight Returns". I come to this conclusion based on some snippets from Snyder from a few months back on costume ideas, and the fact that in this teaser image, the bat ears are short, and the costume bat symbol resembles the design from the comics. The "rubbery" look, however...I am not a fan of. I was glad to see us get away from that look when Christopher Nolan's Dark Knight trilogy hit, but we may be going back to it with Snyder's take.

Live Action Batman The Animated Series Intro

Remember the intro to the now classic Batman the Animated Series?  Check out this live action version of the same intro.  It is amazingly well done!

Reaper of Souls Coming to Consoles!

Do you own a PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, or Xbox One? Are you a Diablo 3 fan? Do you wish you could play Reaper of Souls on your console? Well, you can...on August 19th!

Xbox Live Gold Free Games For May 2014

Are you an XBox Live Gold member and have a XBox 360?  I do!  This months free games are Dust: An Elysian Tale from the 1st to the 15th.  Saints Row: The Third will be free from the 16th to the 31st.

I already got Dust yesterday, and let me tell you that this is a gorgeous game.  The visuals are stunning with fluid animation.  The controls are smooth as butter.  The voice acting is decent.  The story is well done.  I highly recommend this title, if you haven't purchased it before.

Saints Row: The Third...come on, it is a legend of a series on the Xbox.  Yes, it has been compared to the likes of Grand Theft Auto, but it has a huge following.  I can't wait to get my hands on that game.
