The new video is called ‘Twisted Swinger’… and it’s a twisted preview indeed. Take a look:

A new, extremely unsettling poster for the series has also debuted, and it’s one that makes me insanely uncomfortable if I look at it for more than a few seconds. Enjoy:

Heel

Yep. American Horror Story: Freak Show premieres on October 8th, and there’s no way it’ll be as sick as that image.

The Intensity Grows In Another Teaser For Next Month’s ‘The Walking Dead’ Premiere! http://www.geekscape.net/the-intensity-grows-in-another-teaser-for-next-months-the-walking-dead-premiere http://www.geekscape.net/the-intensity-grows-in-another-teaser-for-next-months-the-walking-dead-premiere#comments Sat, 20 Sep 2014 00:17:08 +0000 http://www.geekscape.net/?p=80873 Briefly: Following the full trailer that premiered all the way back at SDCC (it seems like so long ago), and the newer trailer from a few weeks back, AMC has just debuted yet another promo for the series’ anticipated return.

It’s a lot of slow-motion shooting and a little bit of voiceover, just like a lot of the promos we’ve been seeing so far… but we’re totally okay with that.

It’s certainly set to be a crazy season, and I really can’t wait to see more. Take a look at the spot below, and let us know what you think! The Walking Dead returns on October 12th!

The TGS Trailer For ‘Final Fantasy XV’ Is Gorgeous, Shows Off Real-Time Combat? http://www.geekscape.net/the-tgs-trailer-for-final-fantasy-xv-is-gorgeous-shows-off-real-time-combat http://www.geekscape.net/the-tgs-trailer-for-final-fantasy-xv-is-gorgeous-shows-off-real-time-combat#comments Fri, 19 Sep 2014 23:54:18 +0000 http://www.geekscape.net/?p=80868 Briefly: We still have no idea just when we’ll get to play the thing, but during its TGS presentation, Square-Enix showed off a beautiful new trailer for Final Fantasy XV.

The combat system looks to take a fairly stark departure from anything that we’ve seen in the series lately, but in any case, this thing looks gorgeous. It’s been a number of years since I’ve played a new Final Fantasy game, but I’ll definitely be keeping my eyes on this one.

What do you think? We’ll be sure to share more on Final Fantasy XV as soon as it’s announced!

The Red-Band Trailer For ‘V/H/S: Viral’ Is Here! http://www.geekscape.net/the-red-band-trailer-for-vhs-viral-is-here http://www.geekscape.net/the-red-band-trailer-for-vhs-viral-is-here#comments Fri, 19 Sep 2014 23:33:19 +0000 http://www.geekscape.net/?p=80862 Briefly: I’ve been a big fan of Magnet’s V/H/S series so far. The first film was an extremely interesting way to tie some (good and bad) horror shorts together, while the second was an all-around fantastic piece of cinema.

Now, another year has passed, and it’s almost time for the series’ next instalment, V/H/S Viral to hit VOD. Following the reveal of the film’s poster a few days back, Magnet has just release the official red-band trailer:

This year’s compilation comes from the likes of Marcel Sarmiento, Gregg Bishop, Nacho Vigalondo, Justin Benson, Aaron Moorhead, and Todd Lincoln, and will hit VOD on October 23rd, and limited theatres on November 21st. In the film “A police chase after a deranged ice cream truck has captivated the attention of the greater Los Angeles area. Dozens of fame-obsessed teens flock to the streets with their video cameras and camera phones, hell-bent on capturing the next viral video. But there is something far more sinister occurring in the streets of L.A. than a simple police chase. A resounding effect is created onto all those obsessed with capturing salacious footage for no other purpose than to amuse or titillate. Soon the discovery becomes that they themselves are the stars of the next video, one where they face their own death.”

Remember that GoPro zombie from the second film? Man that was cool.

Power Morphicon 2014: Interview with Austin St. John, The Original Red Ranger! http://www.geekscape.net/power-morphicon-2014-interview-with-austin-st-john-the-original-red-ranger http://www.geekscape.net/power-morphicon-2014-interview-with-austin-st-john-the-original-red-ranger#comments Thu, 18 Sep 2014 20:54:56 +0000 http://www.geekscape.net/?p=80775 He led the first group of Power Rangers through the hell that Rita Repulsa put them through and paved the way for generations to come: Austin St. John, who portrayed Jason, the original Red Ranger from 1993′s Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers! We interviewed him right from the floor at Power Morphicon 2014, the official Power Rangers fan convention, last month in Pasadena, California.

It’s rare when you can speak to one of your own childhood heroes, and even rarer to interview them on camera! My nervousness shows. But I was able to pull the man, the myth, and the legend aside for a few minutes and we had ourselves a nice little chat. From his life growing up, his time on the show, to what he’s up to now, and we finally put an end to a fan-circulated rivalry.

Universal Releases Back To The Future II High Tops You Can Actually Afford! http://www.geekscape.net/universal-releases-back-to-the-future-ii-high-tops-you-can-actually-afford http://www.geekscape.net/universal-releases-back-to-the-future-ii-high-tops-you-can-actually-afford#comments Thu, 18 Sep 2014 20:39:50 +0000 http://www.geekscape.net/?p=80849 Way back in 2011, Nike made a seriously limited number of the highly sought after light-up high tops from Back to The Future II, and auctioned them off with all the proceeds going to the Michael J. Fox charity. Pairs of the shoes went for hundreds of dollars, and all 1,500 got gobbled up quickly, quickly killing any dreams of us regular folks of snagging a pair…UNTIL NOW!

Universal Studios has teamed up with HalloweenCostumes.com to release a pair of the sneakers to consumers for $99! They don’t self lace or anything, but they do light up via a rechargeable battery!

Back to the future shoes light up

My future sure is bright!

Though already listed as “OUT OF STOCK”, you can be sure HalloweenCostumes.com is quickly making more.

A Geek Girl’s Top 6 Most Anticipated Films http://www.geekscape.net/a-geek-girls-top-6-most-anticipated-films http://www.geekscape.net/a-geek-girls-top-6-most-anticipated-films#comments Thu, 18 Sep 2014 05:35:58 +0000 http://www.geekscape.net/?p=80838 I got on a roll last night watching movie trailers and wanted to share my top 6 films I can’t wait to see in theaters – spoiler alert one of them comes out Friday!

Tusk
Release Date: September 19, 2014 !!!

Tusk, which officially releases THIS Friday seems like director Kevin Smith channeled his inner Stephen King when writing this script. If you are a Kevin Smith fan like myself, you may have known about the existence of this script for the past year – you may have even tweeted #yeswalrus to encourage Kevin Smith to make the movie.

Since I can’t explain the absurd plot of this film better than its official description, here it is: “A chilling horror tale about the perils of storytelling, this film follows a brash American podcaster as he braves the Canadian wilds to interview an old man with an incredible past-only to discover the man’s dark secret involves a walrus.”

Yes, a walrus – or rather #YesWalrus. Smith explained in a Tusk featurette that the idea for the film came from a public listing for “lodger” in an old man’s house whose only requirement was that said lodger must be willing to wear his realistic walrus suit for two hours a day. As Kevin Smith pointed out – clearly this had to be made into a horror movie so he did and you know where you can find me tomorrow.

Watch the Trailer

Star Wars: Episode VII
Release Date: December 18, 2015

After watching the Tusk trailer a YouTube suggestion for “Kevin Smith describes what he saw on the Star Wars Episode VII set” and made me really excited for it to come out. It’s a ways off for the release, but it can’t come soon enough for a girl like me. Since I was three years old my big brother was telling me stories of Tattoine, the wisdom of Yoda and the badassery that is Han Solo.

While we all thought the tragedy of the new Star Wars was over after the final release of the prequel trilogy, Disney had another idea. They teamed up with director J.J. Abrams whose storyline will take place 30 years after the original George Lucas trilogy’s timeline. The screenplay is set to revolve around the original main characters, Luke, Leia, and Han Solo who have all been confirmed from the original cast.

I am personally excited to see what Disney does with the storyline – I actually really like Clone Wars on Disney. I also anxiously await a new Star Wars drinking game – a shot for every lens flare J.J. Abrams puts into the movie.

Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice
Release Date: March 2016

Okay, so here is another one that is pretty far off. I have always loved Batman – he’s a super badass. I’m not a fan of Superman however, so I think it will be interesting to see how this one works out.

They’ve released the images of Wonder Woman and we’ve been seeing a lot of Batmobile photos on instagram lately – so far it looks like it will be entertaining. I also think that looks-wise Ben Affleck will make a good Batman – I’m just weary of Superman’s involvement… Hmmmmm. Also, what was your final decision on Wonder Woman’s outfit? I think she looks more like an Amazonian.

And in case you missed the (very short) leaked Comic Con trailer – Here is a link

Mad Max: Fury Road
Release Date: May 2015

How could I not be excited for this movie to come out? Mad Max was one of my family’s favorite movies to watch – the original was basically a western set in a dystopian Australia so it broke up all those John Wayne movies my dad loved.

I’m really excited for this movie, not just for nostalgia reasons but because after seeing the trailers it really makes me excited to get into another action movie and be able to appreciate it. The quality of this film and the fact that George Miller directed it – pretty much guarantees a 90 minute big-screen action packed adventure. I always think the best stories are those with characters full of vengeance, PLUS I can’t wait to see all the new cosplay outfits that will come out of this movie.

Watch the trailer

The Hobbit: The Battle of the five armiesRelease Date: December 17, 2014

The Hobbit and Lord of the Rings is hands down one of my favorite movie franchises. The storytelling in the books was epic and they’ve done an amazing job bringing everything together to bring the books to life.

I can’t wait to see the visual detail of Smaug desolating Lake Town (which is where the last one left off), how each of the characters transforms and grows – especially Thorin’s greed (what is up with those dwarves and treasure?!) and Bilbo’s adventurous spirit.

I love a good back story though, so I am actually most excited to see the beginning of Sauron’s power grow and his legions of Orcs begin to become what we saw in The Lord of the Rings.

Watch the trailer

Pixels
Release Date: May 15, 2015

I can always enjoy a good family-friendly movie when its done right and especially when it involves 80s arcade video games! Pixels is an Adam Sandler comedy that Sony is putting out, that seems to be their answer to Pixar’s Wreck It Ralph.

A huge kudo to this kids film is the inclusion of a bunch of awesome video game classics like, “Asteroids,” “Breakout,” “Centipede” and “Missile Command” from Atari Interactive; “Galaga” and “Dig-Dug” “Pac Man”(Bandai Namco); “Q*bert” (Columbia Pictures Industries); “Space Invaders” (Taito Corp); and “Joust,” “Defender,” “Robotron” and “Wizard of Wor” (Warner Bros. Interactive) and “Frogger”.

The movie’s plot is interesting – intergalactic aliens invade Earth when they misinterpret video-feeds of classic arcade games as a declaration of war against them and it also boasts a great cast, including our favorite Game Thrones actor, Peter Dinklage.

‘Paranormal Activity 5′ Moved Back To 2015, Gets Official Title! http://www.geekscape.net/paranormal-activity-5-moved-back-to-2015-gets-official-title http://www.geekscape.net/paranormal-activity-5-moved-back-to-2015-gets-official-title#comments Wed, 17 Sep 2014 21:05:02 +0000 http://www.geekscape.net/?p=80833 Briefly: While I thoroughly enjoyed the first three titles in the Paranormal Activity franchise, the fourth chapter was absolutely abysmal. Luckily, Gregory Plotkin took over for last year’s spinoff, The Marked Ones, which resulted in an acceptable, creepy flick that took the series somewhere that it’s never been before: outside.

Plotkin is back for the fifth chapter in the main series, which today received its official title, Paranormal Activity: The Ghost Dimension. The film was originally slated for this 2013, then pushed to this Fall, then moved to 2016, and now rests comfortably (for now) on March 13th, 2015.

The end of The Marked Ones certainly did a good job preparing us for The Ghost Dimension, as it saw the main character somehow teleport into Katie and Micah’s home just moments before Micah was murdered. It’ll certainly be interesting to see what comes next, and how well the film will tie in with everything that’s happened so far (as the series is damn good at doing).

Looking forward to it? Do you find the series scary? Sound out below!

New ‘The Evil Within’ Trailer Channels Classic Survival Horror, Beautiful Music http://www.geekscape.net/new-the-evil-within-trailer-channels-classic-survival-horror-beautiful-music http://www.geekscape.net/new-the-evil-within-trailer-channels-classic-survival-horror-beautiful-music#comments Wed, 17 Sep 2014 20:33:15 +0000 http://www.geekscape.net/?p=80829 Briefly: We were pretty disappointed when Shinji Mikami’s return to survival-horror, The Evil Within, was pushed back to October, and our hands-on with the game back in June certainly didn’t table our excitement.

The game is scheduled for release on PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One on October 14, and TGS has brought an excellent new trailer for the anticipated title. Seriously, this trailer channels some classic survival horror, and I can’t wait to get my hands on this game.

Here’s what SJ thought when she played the game back at E3:

And it is scary. We screamed a little bit during our play through. And at one point, as we were sloshing waist deep through thick, congealing blood attempting to solve a puzzle to get to the next room, we were certainly viscerally affected by the well-realized world. Stealth and sneak attacks are preferred; noise and light draw unwanted attention. And the zombie/monster/box-man creatures? Only stay dead after you burn them. And matches are in short supply.

Between The Evil Within and Hideo Kojima/Guillermo Del Toro’s Silent Hills, it sounds like a phenomenal time to be a survival horror fan. Take a look at the trailer below, and let us know what you think! If you’re a PS4 owner and you haven’t checked out P.T., you’re definitely missing out.

Kari’s Anime Corner: First Impressions of ‘Free!’ http://www.geekscape.net/karis-anime-corner-first-impressions-of-free http://www.geekscape.net/karis-anime-corner-first-impressions-of-free#comments Wed, 17 Sep 2014 19:56:34 +0000 http://www.geekscape.net/?p=80816 Though summer may be over, it is still hot in southern California! Well, you can cool down with Free!, though for some, it might just make it hotter. A few of my female friends had been squeeing (squee = “an expression of extreme cheerfulness that goes beyond words”) over this show and now with the release of season 2, I thought I would take the plunge.

free2

Free! is about a group of friends who enjoyed swimming together for fun and competing in swim meets when they were in elementary school. Flash forward to them in high school and some things have changed. Their aquatics center is going to be torn down, Rin went away to school in Australia, Nagisa is now in high school and re-introduces himself to Haruka and Makoto (they don’t recognize him at first), and Haruka is still obsessed with being in water all the time. Will they ever be together as a team again? Their high school has an abandoned/rundown pool, but will they be able to fix it?

free6

This is definitely a Shojo show because it focuses on relationships (primarily friendship – though there are yaoi [boy on boy] undertones). To be honest, domestic/real life anime does not have a particular draw for me (compared to supernatural, magical, fantasy, historical, or horror animes) but I did enjoy the first few episodes of Free!. Now, before I get into the meat of the show, let me first talk about why this show has the ladies (and some guys) drooling. It is a swim team = beautiful men frequently shirtless; it is basically fanservice. Then you acknowledge the water aspect and notice these boys glisten. Yep. Not just twinkle in their eye, but full on, let me get out of the water and stun you with my glistening physique. There is a funny female character, Kou, who joins the team as their manager, but her other motive is that she enjoys ogling the swimmers. Not only that, but she focuses on somewhat random body parts. One time she admires a guy’s triceps and one of the boys on the team questions her obsession by repeating the praised body part’s name out loud. The timing is perfect because as soon as she says, “I can’t get enough of those triceps,” I am thinking, “triceps? Really?!” and low and behold a character voices my exact sentiment.

  free3

The overall style is very Shojo with everything being so pretty and deeply saturated. The only thing that is a little weird is these shirtless athletes have no aerials or nipples; they are like Ken dolls. Though it is not common in anime to see nipples on men (or even most women), it is emphasized by how often these characters are shirtless.

free1

To be honest, the show did not totally hook me but I am curious to see where it will go. The relationships between friends is entertaining, with warm and fuzzy moments, jokes/teasing, and many of the characters striving to be free like Haruka (the best swimmer on the team).

It has the vibe of a sports centered show and the swimming is shown rather well. There are shots outside the pool as onlookers catch the action and there are POV shots that let you experience their underwater world. Watching the show makes you want to go swimming. Even if you have never been on a swim team, you can appreciate the camaraderie. Not every character on the swim team is a star swimmer, they vary in skill, which is refreshing because it allows those characters to develop.

 free5

If you want to ogle some pretty boys, want a refresher from the heat, enjoy sports shows, or are interested in relationship shows, then you should check out Free!.

First Image For Sony’s ‘Powers’ Shows Off The Series’ Stars! http://www.geekscape.net/first-image-for-sonys-powers-shows-off-the-series-stars http://www.geekscape.net/first-image-for-sonys-powers-shows-off-the-series-stars#comments Wed, 17 Sep 2014 03:31:47 +0000 http://www.geekscape.net/?p=80810 Briefly: Following the latest casting announcement back in August, Sony (via USAToday) has given us our first official look at Powers in a still of stars Sharlto Copley’s Christian Walker and Susan Heyward’s Deena Pilgrim.

The series is set to premiere its first episode on Sony’s own Playstation Network this December… which is a weird but intriguing idea (and I probably won’t get it because I’m in Canada), and although I’m not overly familiar with the comic book series myself, it’s got a pretty stellar creative team coming together, so I’m definitely looking forward to checking it out.

Deadline states that “Powers is set in a world full of people with superhuman abilities and where all of those powers are just another catalyst for mayhem and murder. It follows the lives of two homicide detectives, Christian Walker and Deena Pilgrim, who are assigned to protect humans like us and investigate cases involving people with superhuman abilities, referred to as Powers who glide through the sky on lightning bolts and fire and who clash above cities in epic battle, oblivious to the mortals below.”

Are you looking forward to Powers? Who else would you like to see in the series? Check out the still below, and be sure to let us know what you think!

Tom Hiddleston To Star In Legendary’s ‘Skull Island’! http://www.geekscape.net/tom-hiddleston-to-star-in-legendarys-skull-island http://www.geekscape.net/tom-hiddleston-to-star-in-legendarys-skull-island#comments Wed, 17 Sep 2014 03:16:15 +0000 http://www.geekscape.net/?p=80806 Briefly: Legendary’s Skull Island appears to be moving along nicely, and one of Hollywood’s hottest actors has just signed up to star: Loki himself, Tom Hiddleston. The film was originally announced back at SDCC, and at that time it was revealed that Godzilla screenwriter Max Borenstein would draft the screenplay.

Legendary has also announced that The Kings of Summer director Jordan Vogt-Roberts will direct the film (he’s also attached to direct the Metal Gear Solid film… meaning that it probably won’t be made forever, which may be a good thing).

Hiddleston will also star in Legendary / Guillermo Del Toro’s Crimson Peak (which looks phenomenal, by the way), so we better get used to seeing his face (because we weren’t already).

Details are scarce on Skull Island, but the studio states that ‘previous works have touched on the island, but staying on and exploring this mysterious and dangerous place offers Legendary the opportunity to take audiences deeper inside this rich world with a style and scope that parallels other Legendary productions’

Excited? The film will hit theatres on November 4th, 2016.

USA’s ‘Dig’ Pushed To 2015 http://www.geekscape.net/usas-dig-pushed-to-2015 http://www.geekscape.net/usas-dig-pushed-to-2015#comments Wed, 17 Sep 2014 03:01:45 +0000 http://www.geekscape.net/?p=80804 Briefly: USA’s great-looking new event series, Dig, will not premiere this Fall as it was originally scheduled to.

Middle-Eastern conflict has caused numerous production issues for the six-episode (to start) series, which was originally slated to film in Jerusalem for its entirety, but was later moved to Croatia.

The series “tells the story of Peter (Isaacs), an FBI agent stationed in Jerusalem who, while investigating a murder of a female archeologist, uncovers a conspiracy 2000 years in the making that threatens to change the course of history.”

SJ had the awesome opportunity to sit down with the cast and producers back at SDCC, and it’s safe to say that we’re damned excited for the premiere… sometime next year.

Are you down for Dig? Or does the name Tim Kring make your toes curl (and not in a good way)? Sound out below!

New ‘Interstellar’ Poster Shows McConaughey In Another World http://www.geekscape.net/new-interstellar-poster-shows-mcconaughey-in-another-world http://www.geekscape.net/new-interstellar-poster-shows-mcconaughey-in-another-world#comments Wed, 17 Sep 2014 02:46:51 +0000 http://www.geekscape.net/?p=80798 Briefly: Interstellar is almost here!

Well, not really, but we can dream, can’t we?

A new poster has just debuted for the November 7th release, and the image clearly shows our hero Matthew McConaughey on another world. Exactly where he’s going and what he’s up to we won’t know for some time yet, but damn if I’m not intrigued.

If you missed the film’s newest trailer from back in July, definitely take a look at it (and don’t forget the tissues), and be sure to share your speculation on the film below! Us? We can’t wait to get in line.

Interstellar

Interstellar chronicles the adventures of a group of explorers who make use of a newly discovered wormhole to surpass the limitations on human space travel and conquer the vast distances involved in an interstellar voyage.

Power Morphicon 2014: Can “Power Rangers” Fans Name All Wu-Tang Clan Members? http://www.geekscape.net/power-morphicon-2014-can-power-rangers-fans-name-all-wu-tang-clan-members http://www.geekscape.net/power-morphicon-2014-can-power-rangers-fans-name-all-wu-tang-clan-members#comments Tue, 16 Sep 2014 15:55:11 +0000 http://www.geekscape.net/?p=80786 The Wu-Tang Clan and the Power Rangers share a surprising amount of similarities. They both know kung-fu. Both have awesome spirit animals and nicknames. Both made a scene in a big way in 1993. And, both are badass. Period. I went out onto the floor of Power Morphicon last month to see how large the venn diagram is of Power Rangers fans who believe that Wu-Tang is forever. And you might be surprised by the results.

‘V/H/S: Viral’ Gets A Creepy New Poster! http://www.geekscape.net/vhs-viral-gets-a-creepy-new-poster http://www.geekscape.net/vhs-viral-gets-a-creepy-new-poster#comments Tue, 16 Sep 2014 02:43:58 +0000 http://www.geekscape.net/?p=80767 Briefly: I’ve been a big fan of Magnet’s V/H/S series so far. The first film was an extremely interesting way to tie some (good and bad) horror shorts together, while the second was an all-around fantastic piece of cinema.

Now, another year has passed, and it’s almost time for the series’ next instalment, V/H/S Viral to hit VOD. BloodyDisgusting debuted a sweet (and unsettling) new poster for the film today. Take a look:

Viral

This year’s compilation comes from the likes of Marcel Sarmiento, Gregg Bishop, Nacho Vigalondo, Justin Benson, Aaron Moorhead, and Todd Lincoln, and will hit VOD on October 23rd, and limited theatres on November 21st. In the film “A police chase after a deranged ice cream truck has captivated the attention of the greater Los Angeles area. Dozens of fame-obsessed teens flock to the streets with their video cameras and camera phones, hell-bent on capturing the next viral video. But there is something far more sinister occurring in the streets of L.A. than a simple police chase. A resounding effect is created onto all those obsessed with capturing salacious footage for no other purpose than to amuse or titillate. Soon the discovery becomes that they themselves are the stars of the next video, one where they face their own death.”

Remember that GoPro zombie from the second film? Man that was cool.

‘Destiny’s ‘Vault Of Glass’ Raid Opens At 2 A.M. Pacific! http://www.geekscape.net/destinys-vault-of-glass-raid-opens-at-2-a-m-pacific http://www.geekscape.net/destinys-vault-of-glass-raid-opens-at-2-a-m-pacific#comments Tue, 16 Sep 2014 02:26:44 +0000 http://www.geekscape.net/?p=80764 Briefly: Let the raiding begin.

While I’m not even close to being high enough level to give this a shot, Bungie has announced that Destiny’s first raid, the Vault of Glass, will open at 2AM Pacific time tonight. It sure sounds like a freaking blast. Here’s what the developer had to say about the event:

“Beneath Venus, evil stirs.”

 

The Director is light on details for the Raid in Destiny. This is by design. The most elaborate mission ever created by Bungie is a mystery as much as it is a challenge – a puzzle and a gauntlet. The race to see who can be first to solve it – with their cunning and their skill – is about to begin.

 

At 2:00 AM Pacific on Tuesday, September 16th, the Raid will accept challengers in Destiny. That’s 9:00 AM GMT.

 

Become Legend.
Not everyone will qualify. Among those who do, not everyone will succeed. To even approach this trial of teamwork and combat, the Guardians in your Fireteam will need to be Level 26.

 

Gear up. Team up.
Bring with you a team that has made the commitment to work together. Configure your loadouts so that you are powerful together in a variety of ways. Communicate with each other. The Raid will demand that you operate as a team. Cooperation is the key to your success.

 

Follow the Leader.
It’s very likely that you will not finish the Raid in one sitting. Your Fireteam leader is crucial to your eventual potential success. Your progress will be saved for one week. To resume your mission where you left off, you’ll need to follow the same Fireteam leader back into battle.

 

Enjoy the View.
There are those among you who are certain that they will be first. They have accepted our dare with a pledge to broadcast their first attempt. If you’re not yet prepared to undertake this rite of passage, you’re welcome to watch as they venture into the hostile unknown.

Do you think you and your friends can beat these intrepid raiding parties to the finish line? Bungie will be watching. And, we’ll celebrate the fastest Fireteam from the Tower.

 

Of course, once you have completed the Raid, we’ll invite you to try it on hard. That’s the true experience.

 

Be brave.

Sounds like quite the night(s). Don’t forget the MTD and Doritos, and when you’re finished playing, be sure to let us know your thoughts!

Marvel Releases Full Synopsis For ‘The Avengers: Age Of Ultron’ http://www.geekscape.net/marvel-releases-full-synopsis-for-the-avengers-age-of-ultron http://www.geekscape.net/marvel-releases-full-synopsis-for-the-avengers-age-of-ultron#comments Tue, 16 Sep 2014 02:17:57 +0000 http://www.geekscape.net/?p=80762 Briefly: Following the plot details released all the way back in July, Marvel has just debuted the official, full synopsis for next year’s The Avengers: Age of Ultron.

Marvel Studios presents “Avengers: Age of Ultron,” the epic follow-up to the biggest Super Hero movie of all time. When Tony Stark tries to jumpstart a dormant peacekeeping program, things go awry and Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, including Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, The Incredible Hulk, Black Widow and Hawkeye, are put to the ultimate test as the fate of the planet hangs in the balance. As the villainous Ultron emerges, it is up to The Avengers to stop him from enacting his terrible plans, and soon uneasy alliances and unexpected action pave the way for an epic and unique global adventure.

Marvel’s “Avengers: Age of Ultron” stars Robert Downey Jr., who returns as Iron Man, along with Chris Evans as Captain America, Chris Hemsworth as Thor and Mark Ruffalo as The Hulk. Together with Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow and Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye, and with the additional support of Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury and Cobie Smulders as Agent Maria Hill, the team must reassemble to defeat James Spader as Ultron, a terrifying technological villain hell-bent on human extinction. Along the way, they confront two mysterious and powerful newcomers, Wanda Maximoff, played by Elizabeth Olsen, and Pietro Maximoff, played by Aaron Taylor-Johnson, and meet an old friend in a new form when Paul Bettany becomes Vision. Written and directed by Joss Whedon and produced by Kevin Feige, Marvel’s “Avengers: Age of Ultron” is based on the ever-popular Marvel comic book series “The Avengers,” first published in 1963. Get set for an action-packed thrill ride when The Avengers return in Marvel’s “Avengers: Age of Ultron” on May 1, 2015.

Getting excited? May 1st isn’t that far away! What are your thoughts on the plot revelation?
