Blizzard's Chris Metzen Retires

Blizzard's Chris Metzen Retires

Veteran Blizzard designer Chris Metzen, who worked extensively on Warcraft, StarCraft, and Diablo, is hanging up his guns. In a blog post on Blizzard’s battle.net forums, Metzen thanked his Blizzard colleagues and explained that he’s stepping away from the company he’s worked for since he was 21 to focus on his family. “The reason I use the word “retire” is because I’m not going to some other company or starting up new projects or anything remotely like that”, wrote Metzen. “It’s been a long, amazing stretch of years. Now it’s time to slow it down. Rest. Lay around on the couch and get fat. Well, fatter.… Continue reading…

ReCore Review

ReCore Review

ReCore is a new-looking game with a charming, much older-feeling soul. It’s less interested in telling a cohesive story than it is in throwing elaborate, well-designed platform challenges and combat scenarios at you. It’s an old-style approach that’s executed so soundly I wanted to ignore its many technical and structural failings, but ultimately they do take some of the wind out of an experience that could have been great. ReCore starts out strong, building its gameplay suite piece by solid piece. Combat, traversal, and exploration are all handled well individually and balanced nicely against one another so I never felt overloaded or underserved by any one part of it. Continue reading…

Daniel Radcliffe on Whether He'd Return to Harry Potter

Daniel Radcliffe on Whether He'd Return to Harry Potter

Following reports that Warner Bros. is looking to get Daniel Radcliffe back for another Harry Potter film, the actor has come forward to address whether he’d be up for reprising his iconic role as “the boy who lived.” Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter at the Deauville Film Festival, Radcliffe said, “I’m never going to close the door; that would be a stupid thing to do.” That said, he went on to note that he’d be “happy enough and secure enough to let someone else play it” in the event Warner Bros. found another actor to star as Potter in the rumored adaptation of J.K. Rowling’s new stage play Harry Potter and the Cursed Child. Continue reading…

These Official Pokemon Rings Are Adorable

A Japanese website started selling a line of Pokemon last week, ranging from 12,000 yen (around $116 USD) to 148,000 yen (around $1,442 USD). The rings (and one necklace) are officially licensed Pokemon products and vary in size and weight, including some items that are made of real gold, and feature diamonds. Check them out in the gallery below –  The items are each available in different size and color/material variations (including white gold) which can be found here, and are able to be engraved upon request, too. The website is called ‘U-Treasure by K.uno’, with this line specifically being referred to, fittingly, as ‘Pocket Monsters’ (note that it is entirely in Japanese). Continue reading…

Ranking the X-Men Movies

Ranking the X-Men Movies

The X-Men movies laid much of the groundwork for our modern super hero movie landscape, so we figured now would be great time to assess the franchise as a whole. We’ve got the good, the bad, and the Origins. Let’s rank the X-Men movies! Spoilers follow for all the X-Men films follow. Bringing up the rear is X-Men Origins: Wolverine, Hugh Jackman’s first solo outing as the clawed one. Rather than truly dive into Logan’s deep back story, the film is like X-Men Lite — overstuffed with mutant characters it’s hard to care about, dull, and too divergent from key aspects of the comics. The film’s mishandling of Deadpool alone is a capital offense. Continue reading…

Boseman Says Black Panther Is an Anti-Hero

Boseman Says Black Panther Is an Anti-Hero

Chadwick Boseman, who plays Black Panther in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, feels the character he portrays is somewhat of an anti-hero. Boseman told Entertainment Weekly “I feel like although he is a superhero, he is a super anti-hero.” With his intelligence and resources, the King of Wakanda acting as an anti-hero could mean a number of things for the character’s solo movie — which hits theaters February 16, 2018. His revenge-driven path in Captain America: Civil War ultimately ended peacefully, but Boseman’s statement could hint at different direction for the character moving forward. Continue reading…

Pratt Wants a Star-Lord/Punisher Crossover

Chris Pratt, who stars as Peter Quill (aka Star-Lord) in Guardians of the Galaxy, recently weighed in on which character from the MCU he’d like to meet up with on the big screen, selecting the Punisher as his top choice. While promoting the upcoming film Magnificent Seven, Pratt told We Got This Covered that he “would like Peter Quill to meet the Punisher,” noting that while the character—recently played by Jon Bernthal in Netflix’s Daredevil series—isn’t currently featured in the movies, “it would be awesome” if it could somehow happen. Pratt went on to say that Frank Castle (aka the Punisher) was his “favorite growing up” and it would “be cool for Peter Quill” to have the opportunity to meet him. Continue reading…
