Mon, 09/29/2014 - 00:44

Nintendo 3DS users can preview the new themes heading to Japanese handhelds with an upcoming firmware update on the official Japanese website showcasing the themes.

Masters of Sex: Season 2 Finale Review

Sun, 09/28/2014 - 23:16

Warning: Full spoilers for the episode follow...

Masters of Sex wrapped up its 2014 in fine fashion (after a fairly uneven season) with "The Revolution Will Not Be Televised" - where both Ethan and Barton returned in brief, but surprising, ways. At first it seemed like Ethan, who popped up in a competing sex study network film, was the one who somehow got out ahead of Bill and Virginia, getting the last laugh with the first sex movie. Hell, even Virginia instantly blamed herself for rejecting Ethan all those years ago (because, yes, years passed by this season). But discovering that it was all Bill's doing, and that he was the one to sabotage their own movie, was inspired.

IGN AU Pubcast 104: The Rose Byrne of Podcasts

Sun, 09/28/2014 - 22:14

It's been three weeks since the last Pubcast and so Tristan, Lucy, Luke, Cam and Baker make up for lost time by ripping more tinnies than Boonie on the QF to London. And we're not talking about the creator of Mortal Kombat!

"You wouldn't believe how many autographs I sign as Pete Sampras!"

Consequently things got a little rowdy. But would you really want it any other way?

The Strain: "Last Rites" Review

Sun, 09/28/2014 - 22:04

Note: Full spoilers for the episode follow.

For most of this first season The Strain has been very stingy in doling out information, whether it’s in regards to plot or character. A slower, deliberate pace can be a good thing for a series, giving the writers time to explore the people in the show and subtly set up plot points that can pay off down the road. But in the case of The Strain, its slow pace has more often played like just that: a slow pace. A great deal of time was spent with the four plane survivors, detailing their painful process of turning after being infected. It was interesting to see the show’s take on vampire metamorphosis, but all that time meant that other characters had to be occasionally sidelined, sometimes for weeks at a time. When the focus turned to the folks that make up the current pawn shop team, it was usually for the bulk of an episode. “Last Rites” does a complete 180 on all that, feeling like the show realized it spent most of the semester daydreaming and now has to cram for next week’s final.

The Passion of the Write

Sun, 09/28/2014 - 21:07

“In high school, the greatest time of my life was being in theatre class,” recalls Jeffrey Yohalem, the writer behind both Far Cry 3 and Child of Light.

“We created this play each year," he continues. "Santa Fe High was famous locally for making these productions that would go to the fringe festivals in the southwest or in Scotland; this big trip to the Edinburgh fringe festival. Each year a group of us would get together, and we’d create a play from scratch based on everyone’s life experience, and through improv and dance and all of this other stuff, the director would put together the script from that sharing. And that sharing could get really intense, you know, people would talk about really personal stuff. Stuff they hadn’t shared with anyone before. There was crying, and there was screaming… it was just, like, in the middle of everyday school all of a sudden you’d be transported to this deep, vulnerable, scary, beautiful place. Creating that play all together as a group of like, 20 people was… that was the greatest experience that I ever had.”

Boardwalk Empire: "Cuanto" Review

Sun, 09/28/2014 - 21:00

Warning: Full spoilers for the episode follow...

"Maybe I'm a federal agent. Maybe I'm a bigamist. Maybe I'm a murderer on the run."

I don't think there'll be much arguing if I say that Boardwalk is a great series. But I do think that it's often given a pass on certain things because of the beautiful costumes, ironically juxtaposed music, and overall gangster appeal. Which isn't to say that "Cuanto" was a bad episode at all, but when so many things are telegraphed - when you can spot where a particular scene or story's headed before it's able to reveal itself on its own terms - moments of tension feel wasted.

Like last week's country home invasion with Chalky and Melvin where an episode's worth of intensity wound up playing out predictably, "Cuanto" had its share of "shocking moments that weren't surprises." Sure, I'll watch a guy kill another guy with a hammer, but when it feels, in the end, like that was the only way the entire mini-arc could have ended, one can't help but feel cheated. So here, with Capone (getting high off his own celebrity status like never before), you knew that he was going to kill someone with that statue of the Empire State Building as soon as you saw it. And worse, thanks to Goodfellas' "I'm funny how?" scene, you also knew who'd be getting impaled.

Destiny Bug Leaks a Ton of Possible Future DLC Content

Sun, 09/28/2014 - 20:58

A Destiny bug has potentially revealed a ton of incoming content for Bungie's popular shooter.

Recorded in action and posted on YouTube by multiple users (user Kinsey_92 has one of the most thorough recordings) the bug appeared to affect the map screen after this weekend's patch. While gliding the cursor over certain planets, the message  “requirements not met” and "expansion required" would pop up - similar to the messages we received during Destiny's Alpha and Beta periods, when locked out of the game's main missions.

The bug appears to have leaked a bunch of new story missions, strikes, raids, and Crucible content, under the name of planned expansions The Dark Below and House of Wolves.

Brooklyn Nine-Nine: Season 2 Premiere

Sun, 09/28/2014 - 20:06

Warning: Full spoilers for the episode follow...

Brooklyn Nine-Nine returned with an episode that recaptured the magic that we'd come to expect from the comedy, with Terry Crews nearly stealing the show. I'd banged a fairly consistent "more Jeffords!" drum last season (there is no such thing as too much Terry Crews), so it was a pleasure to see the Sergeant front and center in the opener with a storyline that allowed his comedic prowess to shine.

Though six-months of story time have passed since the Nine-Nine crew were last united, "Undercover" essentially picked up where the season 1 finale left off.  There was a sense that we, the audience, were being welcomed back into this world of misfits and maniacs even as Peralta was enveloped in Captain Holt's familiar, chilly embrace.

Tarantino's The Hateful Eight to Begin Filming in December

Sun, 09/28/2014 - 20:04

Quentin Tarantino will begin shooting his eighth feature film, The Hateful Eight, in Colorado this December.

The Denver Post reported that the state Economic Development Commission approved the $5 million incentive package Friday morning, securing the on-again-off-again film's locale over Utah and Wyoming. With a budget of $44 million, this will be Colorado's biggest production since True Grit in 1969.

"Even though there have been some big movies shot here over the years, this is the biggest thing since 'True Grit,' because it's all Colorado," film commissioner Donald Zuckerman said. "Because it's a Western. And because it's Tarantino."

Episode 7 Star Wishes Lucas Hadn't Tweaked the Original Trilogy

Sun, 09/28/2014 - 20:02

Episode VII actor Oscar Isaac believes the original Star Wars trilogy was fine just as it was, before George Lucas fiddled with it in subsequent years.

Isaac, who will play an unknown role in J.J. Abrams' upcoming Star Wars flick, told The Huffington Post that he can't blame George Lucas for making the tweaks.

"As an artist, like, he made the sh*t, so why can’t he do whatever the heck he wants with it. There’s a part of me that appreciates that he doesn’t really care if people are upset about it."

However, he admits the changes - the addition of CGI, Greedo shot first, "nooooooo," et al - made the films "less interesting".

Once Upon a Time: Season 4 Premiere Review

Sun, 09/28/2014 - 20:00

Note: Full spoilers for the episode follow.

Storybrooke can't stay normal for long. Maid Marian's back and Regina's ticked, Rumplestiltskin has found what looks like Yen Sid's hat from the Sorcerer's Apprentice, and oh yeah, Elsa has swept into Storybrooke and already created a giant snowman. In short, it's another day in the life of the characters on Once Upon a Time.

There's been a lot of buzz about the addition of the Frozen characters to the series, and their introduction met expectations. We saw their parents' death, spent time with them in Arendelle, and learned Elsa had a very good reason to be in the Enchanted Forest. Since Frozen is still on everyone's mind, the actors portraying Elsa, Anna, and Kristoff probably feel pressure to channel the tone and voice from the characters in the film which no one else on the series really has to do.

The Simpsons: Season 26 Premiere Review

Sun, 09/28/2014 - 19:31

Warning: Full spoilers for The Simpsons: Season 26 premiere follow.

It's pretty crazy to think that The Simpsons kicked off its 26th season tonight. Rare is the television show that manages even a third of that lifespan. But the problem with anything that lasts 25 years is that it grows more and more difficult to avoid the "been there, done that" dilemma. That's been the major downfall of The Simpsons for, oh, about 15 years now. It seems like we've seen just about every conflict possible with the residents of Springfield, and often more than once. And unfortunately, "Clown in the Dumps" fell victim to that same, basic flaw. There was little in this premiere we haven't seen before.
