Ranking DC's 15 Event Comics

IGN.com - Wed, 01/28/2015 - 18:41

DC Comics is set to kick off their next major event called Convergence this April as elements from the old DCU will make a comeback in a conflict that spans the multiverse. With that big event on the horizon, we figured now would be a good time to look back at DC's past events and see how they measure up today.

Event comics and crossovers are just part of the territory when it comes to superhero comics these days. Ever since Crisis on Infinite Earths set the standard for epic, spectacle-driven superhero stories in the DC Universe, DC has been pumping out one event after another. Some of them have been immensely entertaining, while others are better left gathering dust in the quarter bin.

IGN.com - Wed, 01/28/2015 - 18:20

Brad Pitt is in negotiations to star in his wife Angelina Jolie's forthcoming drama Africa.

According to TheWrap, Pitt will play famed archaeologist Richard Leakey in the biopic, which follows Leakey's defense of elephants against poachers in Kenya in the late 1980s.

Jolie is working with cinematographer Roger Deakins, who also shot her last film, Unbroken. She is also producing Africa and production could begin as soon as this summer.

"I’ve felt a deep connection to Africa and its culture for much of my life, and was taken with Eric Roth's beautiful script about a man drawn into the violent conflict with elephant poachers who emerged with a deeper understanding of man’s footprint and a profound sense of responsibility for the world around him," Jolie said of the project in a statement.

Agent Carter Character's Major Marvel Movie Connection

IGN.com - Wed, 01/28/2015 - 18:15

Note: Spoilers for the most recent Agent Carter episode, from January 27th, follow.

It only took one episode beyond her introduction for Peggy Carter’s new neighbor, Dottie (Bridget Regan) to show she had some huge secrets on Marvel’s Agent Carter – as she quickly and effortlessly killed the dangerous Mr. Mink.

So how does Dottie have these skills? We have the answer, straight from the show's executive producers. Ready to hear it?

One last warning if you want to look away…

Alright, if you’re still with us, here goes! As some suspected might be the case, especially given the specific fighting style she used, Dottie is indeed a product of the Black Widow Program – or at least the program that will become Black Widow. Yes, before Natasha Romanoff would prove how formidable she was in the present day of the Marvel films, other women received the same training from Russia – and Dottie is here to represent that in Agent Carter’s 1946 setting.

Beware of spoilers for Batman #38!

Today's Batman #38 had two huge developments in the current Endgame story arc.

Last issue, Jim Gordon discovered pictures of the Joker dating back to the beginnings of Gotham, and this issue appeared to confirm that the Joker is older than Gotham.

A classic figurine of Star Wars bounty hunter Boba Fett fetched more than $27,000 at auction recently,

Bloomberg reports that Fett was one of 70 figurines put up for auction by former United Kingdom Star Wars Fan Club chairman Craig Stevens. It was the rarest of the bunch, and raised the most by far at approximately 18,000 pounds or around $27,221. That accounted for almost half of the $63,209 total in his figurine sales at auction.

Stevens said it would be "terribly heart-wrenching" to watch his items sold off. Along with Boba Fett, figurines of Obi-Wan Kenobi, R2-D2, and Yak Face sold for thousands of dollars each. Other top-earners included Luke, Leia, Yoda, Sandpeople, Darth Vader, and Storm Trooper.

The Witcher Battle Arena Review

IGN.com - Wed, 01/28/2015 - 16:30

It’s 25 minutes into a match of The Witcher Battle Arena when I realize it should have ended 15 minutes ago. I was enjoying the simplicity of attacking iconic characters from the Witcher world with flashy spells, and didn’t notice that the clock had stopped ticking and the respawn count had locked in place. Battle Arena has broken, and the match will not count. I reboot the iPad app, load up another match, and run into new, equally irritating bugs and disruptive connectivity issues. This is common, unfortunately, and unacceptable for a free-to-play 3v3 MOBA that already has substantial problems.

The rich world of The Witcher is primed and ready for competitive multiplayer game, and Battle Arena gives each of its nine launch characters a fun and distinct set of skills. Letho is a brutish tank who can deal and receive damage in bulk at the expense of mobility; Iorveth’s archery expertise leaves him vulnerable if anyone closes the gap, but utterly devastating from afar if you can land his skill-shots; and Geralt of Rivia himself modifies his stylish attacks with the Sign magic that makes him such a talented monster hunter in the mainline Witcher games. These characters and more rotate in and out of free-to-play accessibility, so if you play long enough you can enjoy everyone without spending a dime.

Nintendo: 3DS Sales Dip Lower than Expected in Q4 2014

IGN.com - Wed, 01/28/2015 - 16:21

Nintendo has seen a 40 percent slide in global 3DS sales when compared to the fourth quarter of 2013.

With 4.99 million 3DS units purchased globally during the holiday season, Nintendo has decreased its projected sales for 2015 from 12 million to 9 million. According to them, the handheld "did not grow sufficiently" in the US or Europe.

Conversely, the Japanese company confirms gains in its software sales. In 2014, Nintendo reports a total of 53.04 million units of software sold throughout the year. Pokemon Omega Ruby Version, Pokemon Alpha Sapphire Version and Super Smash Bros. for the Nintendo 3DS helped bolster these software sales, selling 9.35 million and 6.19 million copies each.

The Visual History of Zombies in Video Games

IGN.com - Wed, 01/28/2015 - 15:54

The zombie apocalypse is upon us. It has been for some time, actually – over 30 years now, if video games are anything to go by. (And they always are.) We've done a little digging, unearthing three decades' worth of the digital undead to see just how their depictions have changed over time.

The results are unsurprising on a technical level – as video game hardware has become more capable through the generations, these shuffling corpses, Crimson Heads and walkers have become more and more lifelike in their unliving appearance. Whereas it took a true leap of the imagination to extrapolate the idea of an attacking zombie from the sparse, blocky pixels of early '80s efforts, modern titles are so detailed in presenting these beasts' disfigurements that they're almost too gruesome to gaze upon at all.
