For your nerding convenience, we now present the schedule for the first two days of San Diego Comic Con, the 2014 edition. If you’ll be in San Diego this year for the con, then lucky you, because it seems like an all you can nerd buffet of treats and dishes to keep you satisfied all weekend long. There’s something for everyone from screenings of upcoming comic book-based TV shows, panels for old and new TV favorites, previews for new films from many of the major studios, celebrations, interviews, reminiscences with nerdy icons and, dare I say, a few surprises. Strap in because getting through this one half of a full schedule is trip in and of itself. (more…)
Word is out that Capcom‘s Zombie Smashing video game franchise Dead Rising will be getting the live action movie treatment, but will not tread the usual route to theaters. In fact, they decided to skip theaters entirely. (more…)
Rovio Entertainment and Hasbro have worked out a deal to bring The Transformers into the Angry Bird fold. It was most likely only a matter of time after the successful Angry Birds Star Wars addition to the Angry Birds franchise. (more…)
I am pleased to report to our Nerd Readers and the world in general that there is a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie coming out that has nothing to do with Michael Bay. To celebrate their 30th anniversary (and, unfortunately, the release of Bay’s new movie), the turtles are getting their own documentary. Read on for the details. (more…)

This time around it’s Sonic the Hedgehog and the perpetrators of this potential eye-roller are the execs over at Sony. Scroll on for more. (more…)
E3 truly is the best time of the year for video gamers. Everything looks fantastic, and we’re still too far away to know what’s going to turn out to be crap. Regardless of what hits and what misses, it’s almost a given that any entry in the Batman: Arkham series will be a success, and I’m happy to say that the first gameplay trailer for Batman: Arkham Knight doesn’t disappoint!

It’s been a long and rough road to bring Brian Michael Bendis and Michael Avon Oeming‘s Powers adaptation off the comic book page and into your living room. Bendis recently took the stage at the PSN (Playstation Network) E3 event to announce the successful deal to bring the Powers adaptation to fans. (more…)
Amongst the goodies at Microsoft’s E3 presentation this morning was the announcement that we’re getting not just one, but two new Tomb Raider games in the near future. Following up on last year’s critically and commercially successful reboot of the franchise, Tomb Raider, developers Square Enix and Crystal Dynamics seem to have their eyes on a true Croftian renaissance.

When i was asked to cover E3‘s release of the new Star Wars trailer, I came close to crapping myself! An Episode 7 trailer? At E3? ALREADY???
Well, as you’ve no doubt gathered from the headline, E3 has NOT released a trailer for Star Wars: Episode VII….
But honestly–even if you’re like me and not big on modern video games–what we have here is damn near almost as good. (more…)
