Telltale Games Is Doing a Marvel Series

They just announced it with the image above, which isn't much to go on - but it will be an episodic game, like the kind they're generally known for.

So what should it be? What would you want it to be? Honestly, I'd like to see them go out on a limb and set something in the Netflix Defenders universe - it's tonally closer to The Walking Dead than most other Marvel stuff.

Ask Luke's Mother-in-Law: Mexican Sushi

Martha Boyd is not just Luke's mother-in-law - she's also an ex-cop, a landlord, a self-described crazy cat lady, a major Star Trek geek and the widow of a green beret. So go ahead: ask her anything. And we mean anything.

Well, hi everyone...I'm back. Yep, mom and I took a little trip south of the border to Mexico again. It was for my 59th birthday. Her 90th is at the end of May so it was sort of a combo deal.

We went to our normal stop - the Melia in Puerto Vallarta. It is a great location, only a few minutes from the airport in the Marina district. From our balcony we could watch all of the ships going in and out of port.

Star Trek Beyond Is the Probable Next Movie Title

Note: the above logo is not official, and probably fan-made. But multiple sources, including TrekMovie.com, have noted that this is the title filed with the MPAA. Given that it's as generic and meaningless as "Into Darkness" and "The Force Awakens," I tend to think it's for real.

As long as what it goes "Beyond" is stale rehashes of scenes from the previous movies, I'm okay with it. If it means having a growly, old Kirk (Shatner) mentoring the new Kirk in a black wing-suit, I'm even more okay with it (it won't have that).

How do you like it as a title?

Doctor Who to Face Bioshock Big Daddy?

Well, you take a look at this new monster the BBC just revealed (and specifically called a monster) and you tell me.

In another image, it appears to have a Cylon-like red eye. And if I had to speculate, I'd say it's somehow confused, misguided, or following outdated orders in a dangerous manner.

Also slow. I bet it's slow.

By Grabthar's Hammer, Galaxy Quest Shall Come to TV!

Yes, it's true - and with the original creative team of director Dean Parisot, writer Robert Gordon and producer Mark Johnson.

Now the question is how they do it. It's unlikely the entire original movie cast - which also included the likes of Rainn Wilson and Justin Long in very early roles - could be reassembled, but has enough time passed to do a "Next Generation"? Because it seems to me that would be the best way to move the whole Star Trek spoof angle forward. And after all, you can only go forward when the motto is "Never retreat." never give up, never surrender.

What kind of Galaxy Quest would you like to see boldly go on the air?

Finally, a Batman Toy Line Without Endless Batmen: Diamond Select's Gotham

Tuesday, April 21, 2015 at 12:09 pm

The curse of every Batman toy line is that it ends up in a barrage of useless multicolored Batmen that supposedly appeal to kids, bit more likely get bought by sports fans when their particular team colors get made. So say one thing for Gotham - since the show is Batman Without Batman, the toy line has to be as well. Curiously, it's by Diamond Select rather than DC Direct, so it will play better with your Sin City and Clerks figures than Flash and Arrow.

Selina and Jim Gordon (with diorama bases) make up the rest of the assortment, first revealed by TV Insider.

Is it me, or does Gordon look like the standard Mattel WWE suited body used for build-a-figures, with a Russell Crowe had popped on?

First Screenshots From Adventure Time's First 3D Game, Finn and Jake Investigations

I know graphics don't necessarily make a game a winner. but the job Little Orbit has done here turning one of the most 2D modern cartoons there is into 3D is quite handsome. In this new title for XBone, PS4 and WiiU, "Finn and Jake decide to carry on the profession of Finn's foster parents, who were Professional Investigators. Confronted with mysterious Land of Ooo disappearances and strange events, players will interrogate colorful inhabitants, dispatch evil doers in fast-paced combat, solve mind-bending puzzles, explore new and familiar locations, and genuinely feel as if they have stepped into their own personal episode of Adventure Time."

Dunno about all that, but it sure is purdy...
