Nintendo 'Working Hard' to Keep Up With NES Classic Demand

Nintendo 'Working Hard' to Keep Up With NES Classic Demand

Nintendo’s throw-back, standalone NES Classic Edition console came out today and so far demand for the product seems to have far outpaced supply. On the Nintendo of America Twitter account, the company assured retro-gaming fans it’s “working hard to keep up with consumer demand.” Assuaging fears this may be consumers’ only chance to pick up the adorable little NES box, Nintendo promised a “steady flow of additional systems” going forward into the holiday season and even “into the new year.” Continue reading…

Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk Review

Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk Review

On the big screen, war has been treated in a large number of fashions. It has been depicted as heroic, lamentable, glorious, and sad, to name but a few. Never though has war been depicted in the crystal clear fashion that Ang Lee gives us in Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk. It is utterly fascinating and wholly new, not for its depiction of war, but for the technical methods of that depiction. For one week exclusively in New York and Los Angeles, Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk can be seen in high frame rate (120 frames per second as opposed to the 24 usually seen in theaters) 4K 3D, and watching it this way is a wholly unique experience. This is a movie which looks like no other. Of course, looking like no other, doesn’t necessarily make Billy Lynn good, nor the experiment—and it feels very much like an experiment—worthwhile.

The CW Releases First Teaser for Supergirl / Flash / Arrow / Legends Crossover

Ahead of The CW’s big Arrow / The Flash / Supergirl / Legends of Tomorrow crossover event, which kicks off in less than three weeks’ time, the network has released the first teaser for the four-part story. Check out the 20-second clip below for a sneak peek at the big DC crossover, as Melissa Benoist’s Kara Zor-El gets acquainted with the rest of her heroic team, after having already met Barry Allen in a Supergirl season 1 episode. The four-night crossover begins on Monday, November 28 with a new episode of Supergirl. That said, Arrow and Legends of Tomorrow executive producer Marc Guggenheim maintains that it’s technically a three-series crossover, with Supergirl serving as a primer before the story truly begins in The Flash, carries on into Arrow, and concludes with DC’s Legends of Tomorrow.

Check out These Updated Pokemon Base Set Cards

Check out These Updated Pokemon Base Set Cards

The Pokemon Trading Card Game just released XY: Evolutions, a set filled with updated reprints from the very first Base Set originally released in the U.S. way back in 1999. That’s right, Charizard, Mewtwo, and the rest are all back with their original card art, now with updated health, attacks, and abilities. Check out our card comparison viewer below. We’ve selected a few of our favorite cards so you can move the slider back and forth to see how the new cards compare to the classics. As you can see, the biggest changes are the increases in health and attack damage. The game has experienced a power creep over the years with Pokemon slowly becoming stronger and stronger, so these Base Set cards have been re-balanced so they can compete in the current metagame. It’s crazy to see that Charizard’s Fire Spin now does a whopping 200 damage! Continue reading…
