stranger things video game

If you thought that the ’80s-inspired posters, the geeky Goonies stunt casting, or Eleven’s perm weren’t retro enough, this Stranger Things video game may just do it.

In anticipation of the fast-approaching Stranger Things season 2, a real, playable Stranger Things game will allow you to explore the weird world of Hawkins, Indiana, and the Upside Down in all of its pixelated glory.

Planet of the Apes Last Frontier

While ideas of more Planet of the Apes movies are still floating around the studio lot over at 20th Century Fox, a sequel to (or spin-off of) this summer’s spectacular War for the Planet of the Apes has not officially been given a green light yet. But fans of that world will have the opportunity to dive back into it with a new video game that comes out this year.

Planet of the Apes: Last Frontier is set between the inexplicably-titled Dawn of the Planet of the Apes and War, which are the two most recent films in the franchise. And here’s some more good news: Andy Serkis, who plays the ape leader Caesar in the new film trilogy, is involved in the game.

Kingdom Hearts 3 trailer

It’s finally happening. Kingdom Hearts 3 may finally be in our grasp. And it only took creator Tetsuya Nomura 12 years, five filler games, and four “remixes” for us to finally get a Kingdom Hearts 3 release date. And it’s not even a real date, just an entire year — 2018.

Oh, well. At least we got a reveal that Toy Story will be one of the new worlds that Sora, Donald, and Goofy get to explore in the Disney-Square Enix collaborative franchise. That, new gameplay demos, and brand spanking new graphics that look even better than Pixar’s then-cutting edge film, are breathing hope back into my cold, hollow soul that believed we’d never get a Kingdom Hearts 3 until I was dead. I can wait around for one more year.

Star Wars Battlefront 2 Trailer

Over the weekend, Electronic Arts unveiled the official gameplay trailer for Star Wars Battlefront 2, revealing the first footage from inside the game itself, and it’s intense.

The Star Wars Battlefront 2 trailer primarily shows off the battle in Theed, the royal city from Naboo where we met Queen Amidala in Star Wars: The Phantom Menace. Battle droids and Clone Troopers battle across the city as droid fighters and Naboo starfighters battle above. Then things get really crazy when Darth Maul shows up and stars spinning around his double-bladed lightsaber.

Outside of the trailer, there were a couple more big announcements about the game coming to consoles this fall, including a huge change in how players will get DLC, and the reveal of some more major characters from the saga being playable in the game. Read More »

Breaking Bad - RV

We’re still in the midst of the Peak TV era, and while our television screens are practically bursting with a multitude of fantastic new television shows seemingly every day, one show still stands above the rest for me. I consider Breaking Bad to be a major contender for the title of the greatest television show of all time. But as much as I love it, I’m hesitant about ever seeing a revival of the series; I’d much rather see something like Better Call Saul, a spin-off set in the same universe that’s allowed to carve out its own identity.

But a virtual reality experience? That’s a different story. Now we have word that showrunner Vince Gilligan is developing a piece of VR storytelling that might continue the saga of drug kingpin Walter White and the tormented Jesse Pinkman. Read everything we know about the Breaking Bad VR experience below.

Star Wars Battlefront 2 Trailer

When Star Wars: The Force Awakens brought the sci-fi saga back in a big way, Star Wars invaded every type of media you could think of, from comics to TV shows to video games. The latter resulted in the revival of one of the most popular video game franchises to take place in a galaxy far, far away: Star Wars Battlefront.

Though Star Wars Battlefront was a big bestseller before The Force Awakens hit theaters, the game ended up disappointing even some hardcore Star Wars fans by not having a campaign mode (creating fast boredom) and having some clunky gameplay, both as a soldier on the ground and as a pilot in space. Thankfully, it sounds like all those problems will be resolved when Star Wars Battlefront II arrives later this year.
