Two New Twin Peaks Posters Debut

Two New Twin Peaks Posters Debut

In honor of “Twin Peaks Day,” Showtime has released two new posters for the much-anticipated return of Twin Peaks, spotlighting the key characters Agent Dale Cooper (Kyle MacLachlan) and Laura Palmer (Sheryl Lee). While both MacLachlan and Lee are back for the show’s revival, it’s notable that we see an older Cooper, but the Laura poster features the same iconic photo of the character used since the show’s 1990 debut. Of course, Laura Palmer was dead from the moment Twin Peaks began — in fact, Twin Peaks Day was created by fans to mark the canon anniversary of Laura’s death: February 24th, 1989 — begging questions of how Lee will be used in the show’s 18-episode run. But as fans of the series know, there are always strange ways to see people again in Twin Peaks… Continue reading…

Netflix's Iron Fist Explained

Netflix's Iron Fist Explained

On March 17, 2017, the new Marvel Netflix series Iron Fist — the last part of the puzzle that eventually assembles into… no, the Defenders — will debut. The Netflix shows have been following a similar pattern to that of their earliest MCU contemporaries: Introduce a number of strong solo heroes, then bring them together for a massive threat in a team adventure. We’re all waiting to see how The Defenders plays out, but for now it’s time to meet the final member of the team to be introduced after Daredevil (Charlie Cox), Jessica Jones (Krysten Ritter), and Luke Cage (Mike Colter). Finn Jones — known to Doctor Who fans as Jo Grant’s grandson from two episodes of The Sarah Jane Adventures, and to Game of Thrones fans as Loras Tyrell — will be playing Danny Rand, AKA Iron Fist, so let’s find out more about the comics version of the Man with the Glowing Hand!

Nier: Automata – Junk Item Upsets Players

After receiving complaints from players in Japan, Square Enix has announced it will update the name of a trash item that can be found when fishing in Nier: Automata. As reported by Siliconera, the item is called “NIN64” and described as “trash that was fished up.” Whether or not it was an intentional joke about Nintendo 64 or something else entirely (others have suggested it may instead be a nod to the 1950s anti-aircraft system, the MIM-46 Mauler, or “MIM46”) fans have made their complaints known and requested the item’s name be changed.

Hugh Jackman Might Still Be Wolverine If He Was an Avenger

Hugh Jackman Might Still Be Wolverine If He Was an Avenger

Logan appears to be Hugh Jackman’s final bow as Wolverine (and a very good one too), but it might not have been so if the Marvel comics universe wasn’t as fragmented as it is in the movie world. Speaking to ScreenRant, Jackman explained that, had there been a chance to appear in an Avengers movie, things might have ended differently: “If that was on the table when I made my decision ,” Jackman said, “it certainly would have made me pause. That’s for sure. Because I always love the idea of him within that dynamic, with the Hulk obviously, with Iron Man but there’s a lot of smarter people with MBAs who can’t figure that out Continue reading…

'Vast Majority' of Mass Effect Andromeda Playable After Story

'Vast Majority' of Mass Effect Andromeda Playable After Story

The “vast majority” of Mass Effect: Andromeda and its side quests will remain open upon completion of the main story, according to the game’s lead designer, Ian Frazier.

But it’s a pretty small percentage. But the vast majority of the game, including the loyalty missions, Mass Effect-2 style, you can do even after you finish the main story. Most parts are still open.” Continue reading…
