By far the worst thing to come out of Disney’s purchase of Lucasfilm was the dismantling of Lucasarts, and thereby the canceling of Star Wars 1313. The third-person actioner would have let gamers play as Boba Fett on a mission in the seedy underbelly of Coruscant. Now, like a punch in a gut, even more concept art from the game has been revealed. Its incredible beauty might bring a tear to your eye, simply because we won’t get to walk around in that virtual world. Check it out below. Read More »

Lindsay Weir went on quite a journey in the first and only season of Freaks and Geeks, shedding her nerdy Mathlete persona to fall in with the aimless freak crowd. But it wasn’t necessarily clear at every step what the right choice was. Should she have left that smoking patio with Millie? Was kissing Nick a terrible idea? And what was up with that whole Deadhead thing?
If those questions have kept you up at night since 2000, the Fine Bros. have a game for you. Their 8-bit, YouTube-based, Choose Your Own Adventure-style Freaks and Geeks game allows you to control Lindsay from the first moments of the pilot. See if you can improve on her McKinley High experience after the jump.

Of all iconic characters Kurt Russell has played, one stands above the rest, on a mountain of bodies, smoking a cigarette and rocking an eyepatch. I refer, of course, to Snake Plissken, the central figure of John Carpenter films Escape from New York and Escape from LA. Russell’s portrayal of the criminal turned hero popped off the screen in a way that still resonates with fans today. However, Plissken was created in another time and the character strictly lives on the big screen.
That wasn’t always the plan though. It’s not a surprise producer Debra Hill, along with Russell and Carpenter, were ahead of the curve just a few short years ago when they attempted to turn Plissken into a multimedia entity, something that’s almost expected today. In the early 2000s, plans were in place for both a video game as well as an anime series, neither of which ever saw the light of day.
Below, not only can you see some gameplay from the cancelled game Snake Plissken’s First Escape, you’ll see concept art from an anime style TV show called Snake. Read More »

The final season of Breaking Bad has become increasingly painful to watch, in the best way possible, but it seems we’ll have to bear the unbearable a bit longer than expected. Series co-executive producer Peter Gould has announced that the final two episodes of the meth drama will run long, amounting to about 30 additional minutes in total.
That’s a lot of extra time to spend clenching your fists and holding your breath. Fortunately, the Internet has come up with a perfect way to relieve some of that tension. The fan-made Breaking Bad video game allows you to travel back to the relatively lighthearted early days, when Walt was just a sick family man in his tighty-whities. Hit the jump for more on the extra-long episodes and the game.

If Star Wars Angry Birds wasn’t nearly evil enough for you, there’s good news: The sequel will allow you to join the Dark Side. Oh, I’m sorry, I meant the Pork Side. Which seems like kind of a cannibal-y thing for them to call themselves, but what do I know? I’m not an evil egg-stealing pig. Also after the jump:
- Peek at some art from the Phineas & Ferb Star Wars special
