6 Burning DC Rebirth Questions We Have So Far

6 Burning DC Rebirth Questions We Have So Far

Several months ago, we published a list of six questions we had about DC Rebirth leading up top the big relaunch. Now that Rebirth has arrived, some of those questions have been answered, but a lot of new ones have popped up in their wake. In the past month we’ve seen the return of the classic Superman, the reveal that Watchmen’s Doctor Manhattan was responsible for the creation of the New 52 and many other mind-blowing twists. Based on the first month of DC Rebirth, here are six more questions we have about DC’s epic relaunch. Warning: this article contains spoilers for DC Universe Rebirth #1 and Action Comics #957!

Free DOOM Demo Extended

Free DOOM Demo Extended

Bethesda has extended the timed free demo for DOOM. The demo was released last week, and contains the first level of the game. It was originally only supposed to be live during E3, however Bethesda has now extended the period, with the Doom Twitter account giving a succinct reasoning: “we figured, what the hell.” Get it while it’s hot though, as there’s no information yet on how long the extension will last, or whether it’s now an indefinite demo.

Mighty No. 9 Delayed Again On Xbox 360

Mighty No. 9 Delayed Again On Xbox 360

Mighty No. 9 has been delayed on Xbox 360, with other platforms still waiting for release. The reasoning for the delay comes down to a bug found by Microsoft during the certification process. Via the official website: “There were issues regarding the publishing process for the Xbox 360 version of the game, and a certification bug was found in the final round of testing which is delaying the release of that version for several days. “Our team has already re-submitted the build to Deep Silver (and to Microsoft), and we expect it to go gold within a few days if all goes according to plan. The post goes on to mention that Kickstarter backers who opted for the Xbox 360 version will receive Steam keys in the meantime, and “once the Xbox 360 version is ready for release we will send out those codes to the relevant backers ASAP.” Continue reading…

Independence Day: Resurgence Review

Independence Day: Resurgence Review

Roland Emmerich, director of Independence Day: Resurgence, is unfairly labelled a ‘guilty pleasure’ director. His action films are generally cheesy and big and full of explosions, so we feel embarrassed by our fondness of them, and tend to relegate them into the murky waters of ‘good/bad’ viewing. Indeed, Independence Day: Resurgence is packed so full of cheese, explosions and too-convenient plot-twists it could sink a ship; yet it all adds up to a fun, old-fashioned disaster pic, made with such confidence and heart that it’s time we finally blast the guilt into the stratosphere where it belongs. Emmerich is not rewriting his rule-book; he’s riffing on it with a bigger budget.  We open with a bearded and pajama-clad (read: crazy) Thomas J. Whitmore (Bill Pullman), haunted by visions and his well-trod “we won’t go quietly into the night” speech that’s become the series’ calling card (Resurgence tries to replicate its chill-inducing patriotism multiple times but falls hilariously short). The aliens are returning, believes Whitmore,  but this time they’ll be bigger, deadlier, and have to contend with double the cast. Continue reading…

12 Monkeys: "Fatherland" Review

12 Monkeys: "Fatherland" Review

Note: Full spoilers for the episode follow below: Betrayal was a major theme this week, as Ramse and Cassie tricked Cole into joining their revenge quest against the Witness and we learned of Olivia’s tragic upbringing and the role our time travelers played in a betrayal she experienced as a child. Kids have it rough on this show, and the moment in the opening scene where that world-weary kid just walks into the path of the time storm that took his family was as effective in showing how bad it is to live in 2045 than anything we’ve seen before. The kid had no future anyway, and he knew it. Our time travelers can go back to either kill the Witness in 1961 or stop the big paradox in 1957. The official mission is the paradoxes. It was a nifty twist to have Adler secretly throw in with Ramse and Cassie to trick everyone else into thinking they and Cole were being sent to 1961 instead of 1957. Adler’s bitterness over Jones getting her daughter back without stopping the plague paid out in a big way, and there’s probably more to come on that front. Continue reading…
