Minecraft is Getting New Skins, Achievements, Music and More…


When most players begin their Minecraft adventure there aren’t many looks to choose from. In fact, you only get to play as our blue-shirted friend. Now, everyone loves Steve – he’s probably the most famous minecrafter in the world, and has excellent stubble. But jolly old Steve doesn’t really represent the diversity of our playerbase. For that reason, we’re giving all players opportunity to play with an Alex skin instead. She brings thinner arms, redder hair, and a ponytail; she actually looks a bit like Jens from certain angles.

Players on all consoles will get the Alex skins for free this Wednesday.

PlayStation people get The Simpsons!

PlayStation players are getting another skin pack this week. The Simpsons, and a bunch of their closest friends, enemies, and acquaintances are on the way. The bundle includes Principal Seymour Skinner, Groundskeeper Willie, everyone’s favorite… Dewey Largo (!) and a lot more. Download it from Wednesday, if you like. The Simpsons skin pack is already available on Microsoft consoles.

Xbox 360 users get extra achievements and bonus tunes!

Achievements – some love ‘em, some are indifferent to them, some don’t even know they exist. I know Marc is really, really into them them; take from that what you will. Until now, Minecraft: Xbox One Edition has included more achievements than 360 Edition. That’s a bit silly when you think about it. This update will add 30 new achievements to the Xbox 360 version of Minecraft, boosting the potential gains to a smooth 1000 gamerscore. Hunt them down but don’t let them rule your playtime. And don’t forget to eat or go to the toilet.

We’re also bringing a bundle of new music tracks to Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition. After this update there’ll be more of C418’s plinky plonky goodness in-game. Nice.

Stay tuned to the Mojang blog and Xbox Wire for all of the latest news on Minecraft. Happy mining!

'Suicide Squad': Jared Leto's Joker Revealed


Suicide Squad director David Ayer revealed the first look at Jared Leto as the iconic supervillain in order to celebrate the Clown Prince of Crime's birthday. Suicide Squad stars Will Smith as Deadshot and Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn. Also in the mix of the supervillain-heavy film are Joel Kinnaman, Cara Delevingne, Viola Davis, Adam Beach, Ike Barinholtz, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Scott Eastwood and Common.

The film centers on a group of imprisoned villains who are recruited by the government for covert operations. It is possible that the film could see cameos from Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice'sJesse Eisenberg (Lex Luthor) and Ben Affleck (Batman).

Personally Leto reminds me more of the thin, model like Joker from Batman Arkham Asylum. What are your thoughts on the look?

“In life, the most important thing is to have fun, and Silicon Valley Comic Con will be the place to experience all your favorite things at one great show,” said Wozniak. “Today, technology is pop culture, in Silicon Valley and around the globe. Entertainment and innovation inspire and bring so much joy to the world, and I’m so excited that we will showcase both at Silicon Valley Comic Con. It’s finally the Age of the Geek, and we’re ready to celebrate!”

Woz called upon his friend Stan Lee, co-creator of Spider-Man, the Hulk, the Fantastic Four, Iron Man, Thor, the X-Men, and many other fictional characters, to help him bring Silicon Valley its very own Silicon-style Comic Con. “The one thing I want Woz to keep in mind is this: With great power comes great responsibility. I love the idea and can’t wait to see it. Excelsior!” said Lee.

Watch the Woz and Stan Lee talk about Silicon Valley Comic Con in a fun promotional video they made together.

The Messengers (CW) Series Premiere



Series Premiere
Satan is cast out of Heaven in what is seemingly a meter to earth. The impact and force of his landing emits divine power that kills a group of human beings who are reborn as angels or messengers armed with powers to fight in the coming Apocalypse against the four horseman. One messenger was on earth for seven years, while 5 others were chosen at the arrival of Satan with another messenger yet to be determined. So far the 6 messengers have the power of future visions, understanding in any language, telepathy, healing, and strength with some powers still remaining to be seen. Each messengers has dramatic struggles present in their personal life in addition to coming to terms with their new found power.



Wikipedia
A mysterious object plummets to Earth, sending out a shock wave that causes five strangers to die, only to miraculously come back to life moments later. The members of the group are Vera (Shantel VanSanten), a struggling radio-astronomer living in New Mexico who is searching for her missing son; Erin (Sofia Black-D'Elia), a young mother in Tucson, Arizona who is desperate to protect her seven-year-old daughter Amy from her abusive policeman ex-husband; Peter (Joel Courtney), a troubled high school student and orphan in Little Rock, Arkansas; Raul (J.D. Pardo), a federal agent in Mexico who is looking to escape his dangerous and violent undercover assignment; and Joshua (Jon Fletcher), a charismatic second-generation televangelist in Houston, Texas. Most mysterious of all is the figure known only as The Man (Diogo Morgado), who offers Vera the location of her abducted son if she will help him with one morally complicated task which puts her on a collision course with Rose (Anna Diop), a nurse in Houston who has been in a coma for seven years after being shot by an unknown hitman. Drawn together by fate and biblical prophecy, the "Messengers" soon learn they now have supernatural gifts that might be the only hope for preventing the impending Rapture.

IMBD

A mysterious object crashes on earth and a group of unconnected strangers die from an energy pulse it emits, but then re-awaken to find out that they have been deemed responsible for preventing the impending Apocalypse


Mack’s Thoughts
The CW has another show with caters to super natural appetites but the Friday night time slot is often a series killer. I thoroughly enjoy this show and the cast of characters, which means it will probably be cancelled. The CW loves starting a story and then ending in once fans become involved but fails to produce big numbers. This show has a lot of potential but it requires a strong viewership to survive. Oh how I loved The Tomorrow People and The Secret Circle, Star Crossed and The Birds of Prey but The CW often produces great shows that they fail to let flourish. No disrespect to Super Natural or Vampire Diaries fans but if you are going to keep producing season after season of the same shows then why waste time producing new ones and then cancelling them. Why just maintain the entire prime time line up with the same type of show to appease viewership and ratings. In any event, this show might fair greater with another vehicle like Netflix especially with the success of Dare Devil. I love a good live action superheroes/comic series but I think there is also room for original shows with heroic content.

Comments from other Messengers are welcomed below.
-Mack Nichols

‘GREEN RIVER KILLER’ STRIKES AGAIN IN PAPERBACK



This October, experience the story of one of America’s most notorious killers as Green River Killer heads to paperback for the first time.

Throughout the 1980s, the highest priority of Seattle-area police was the apprehension of the Green River Killer, the man responsible for the murders of dozens of women. In 1990, with the body count numbering at least forty-eight, the case was put in the hands of a single detective, Tom Jensen. After twenty years, when the killer was finally captured with the help of DNA technology, Jensen spent 180 days interviewing Gary Leon Ridgway in an effort to learn his most closely held secrets—an epic confrontation with evil that proved as disturbing and surreal as can be imagined.

Written by Jensen’s own son, acclaimed entertainment writer Jeff Jensen, Green River Killer: A True Detective Story presents the ultimate insider’s account of America’s most prolific serial killer.

Sure to appeal to fans of True Detective, Green River Killer features a story by Tomorrowland writer Jeff Jensen and gorgeous art by Jonathan Case and is priced at an affordable $19.99. Preorder today from Amazon.com, Barnes & Noble, IndieBound, or your local comic shop.

Movie Review: Unfriended (Cybernatural)


IMDB Storyline: While video chatting one night, six high school friends receive a Skype message from a classmate who killed herself exactly one year ago. At first they think it's a prank, but when the girl starts revealing the friends' darkest secrets, they realize they are dealing with something out of this world, something that wants them dead. Told entirely from a young girl's computer desktop, CYBERNATURAL redefines 'found footage' for a new generation of teens.


My Thoughts: This movie was originally called Cybernatural and released in 2014. It was renamed "Unfriended" and released in April 2015. This movie is only 82 minutes long and takes place in a Skype chat. You are literally on the main character, Blaire's (Shelley Henning) laptop the entire time. (Easter Egg - You see that Blaire likes watching Teen Wolf - which is a show the actress is on currently) This movie is a great advertisement for Apple. All her friends are on Skype and are being haunted by a classmate that committed suicide. Blaire tries to bargain with the deceased classmate on Facebook but the group of friends find themselves having to reveal their deepest darkest secrets while trying to stay alive. It is filled with simple but fun kills of the characters. 


The group is forced to play "Never Have I Ever" and find out a lot about themselves and each other. This movie is a great simple horror movie. Great concept of utilizing a feature that we all use either Skype, Facebook, Google Hangout, FaceTime, etc. We are all so hooked into social media we all forget how easy it is to have that turned against us and points out the bullying aspects of the internet. It also reveals how easy the trolls can be brought to light. 

This movie was not heavy on the gore but did well in delivering a horror aspect. I recommend this movie as it is short and sweet and does what it sets out to do. I like that the whole movie takes place on a computer and it is delivered well. Great ending!

Justice League: Gods & Monsters coming in July



All-New DC Universe Original Movie from Bruce Timm. Warner Bros. Home Entertainment, Warner Bros Animation, and DC Entertainment present an all-new animated feature film from renowned producer and animator Bruce Timm, Justice League: Gods & Monsters, on July 28, 2015. The title will also include never-before-seen bonus content and will be available on Blu-Ray™ Deluxe Edition, Blu-Ray™ Combo Pack, DVD and Digital HD.

This is not your parents’ Justice League! These heroes are not the renowned saviors of the world – they’re more likely Earth’s despotic rulers. Witness the divergent reality where the Justice League protects the planet – but answers to no one but themselves. Employing methods of intimidation and fear, this Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman deal brute force in the name of justice. In this alternate universe, Superman was not raised by the Kents in Smallville, the Caped Crusader is not Bruce Wayne, and Wonder Woman is not an Amazon warrior of Themyscira. When a group of famed scientists experience untimely “accidents,” a government task force follows the trail of clues to the Justice League, but is there a more powerful player operating from the shadows? It’s a high stakes game of intrigue, mystery and action that asks the question: How do you serve justice to those above the law?

With a twist on your favorite Justice League characters, this film is full of thrilling new adventures and jam-packed with a celebrity voice cast which includes Michael C. Hall (Dexter) as Batman, Benjamin Bratt (Law & Order, 24) as Superman, Tamara Taylor (Bones) as Wonder Woman, Paget Brewster (Criminal Minds) as Lois Lane, Jason Isaacs (Harry Potter films, Dig) as Lex Luthor and C. Thomas Howell (E.T., Southland) as Dr. Will Magnus.

Justice League: Gods & Monsters will be available on Blu-ray Deluxe Edition for $29.96 SRP, Blu-ray Combo Pack for $24.98 SRP and on DVD for $19.98 SRP. The Blu-rayTM Combo Pack includes a digital version of the movie on Digital HD with UltraViolet. The Blu-ray™ Deluxe Editionwill include the Blu-Ray™ Combo Pack, along with an exclusive Wonder Woman figurine in a numbered limited edition gift set. Fans can also own Justice League: Gods & Monsters in Digital HD on July 28 via purchase from digital retailers.

BLU-RAY AND DVD BONUS CONTENT

Justice League: Gods & Monsters Blu-ray and Blu-ray Deluxe Edition contain the following special features:
  • ALTERNATE REALITIES: Infinite Possibilities - Justice League: Gods & Monsters falls into a category of storytelling where our well-known characters and the worlds they inhabit are re-imagined. This documentary explores the various attempts by writers to have a little fun and tinker with the characters, resulting in exceptional storytelling that posed thought-provoking questions to audiences.
  • CALCULATED RISKS: The Making of Gods and Monsters – Justice League: Gods & Monsters was an idea that pushed the boundaries. It began with that challenging question writers face: “What haven’t we seen before?” Bruce Timm and Alan Burnett audaciously answered that challenge, resulting in a fresh and exciting film that forces us to think differently about the DC Universe.
  • The New Gods – Encore presentation of 2010 documentary about Jack Kirby’s New Gods. 
  • A Sneak Peak at DC Universe’s Next Animated Movie – An advance look at the next DC Universe animated feature film.
  • Bonus cartoons from the DC Comics Vault

Undead Storm Nightmare Review


This game is the sequel to Undead Storm on DSiWare. In this game you fight off the hordes of zombies. This time around the zombies are bigger, bloodier, and more gruesome. You will find yourself equipping an assault rifle, rocket launcher, chainsaw, or a samurai sword. Upgrade your weapons. The premise of upgrading your games is pretty simple. As you run through the board destroy boxes for much needed supplies. These supplies can then be used for upgrading. It can vary in terms of the amount of supplies needed. 


The Nightwalker patrols the streets. You can see her on your screen luckily so you can work to avoid her. So far I have personally stayed away from her but I might purposely trigger "Nightmare Time" just to see what it is like. Apparently she will call massive amounts of zombies to your position and according to the game no one has ever survived. There is a local play mode in which you can play with up to 3 friends. The game will cost you $4.99 in the eShop. 



My Thoughts:

The game is an easy play in terms of the controls. I like the simplicity of the game. The bosses are difficult enough that you do not feel cheated but are not so hard that you just quit the game all together. If you enjoy simple zombie shooters then this is the game for you.

Patrick Brice's THE OVERNIGHT Coming Soon!


Synopsis: Alex, Emily, and their son, RJ, have recently moved to Los Angeles’ Eastside from Seattle. Feeling lost in a new city, they are desperate to find their first new friends. After a chance meeting with Kurt at the neighborhood park, they gladly agree to join family pizza night at the home. But as it gets later and the kids go to bed, the family “playdate” becomes increasingly more revealing and bizarre as the couples begin to open up.

Writer/director Patrick Brice’s second feature is a painfully funny take on thirty something sexual frustration and parenthood. Featuring memorable lead performances by Taylor Schilling, Adam Scott, Jason Schwartzman, and Judith Godrèche, each actor nimbly balances the script’s sudden emotional turns from surprising honesty to complete embarrassment. Produced by Gettin' Rad and the Duplass Brothers, THE OVERNIGHT tells a complex story of universal inadequacies.

THE OVERNIGHT premiered at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival and will be released by The Orchard on June 19, 2015.

Celebrate Splatoon with 10 Fun Facts About Squids



In advance of the launch of Nintendo's new game Splatoon for the Wii U on May 29th, Nintendo compiled a list of fun and interesting facts about squids. In case you aren't aware, the "Inkling" main characters in the game can transform into squids during gameplay to swim over the surface and up the walls. 


10 Fun Facts About Squids:

  1. Squid have gills just like fish. They are often mistaken for octopus. While the two are similar they are different types of creatures.
  2. Every squid has three hearts. They also move through the water tail first instead of head first.
  3. The ink sac can be triggered to release this black substance very rapidly.
  4. The Humboldt squid is very aggressive and will even attack sharks in the water.
  5. The only predators that giant squid have are sperm whales.
  6. Some species of squid are able to glow in the dark, which makes them easier to spot in the dark waters! Research shows this is due to them having bioluminescent organs.
  7. The giant squid have eyeballs that are the same size as a standard basketball - a helpful defense mechanism in the water that allows them to spot their surroundings more easily.
  8. Squid are believed to be the fastest of all invertebrates in the world. The giant squid is the largest invertebrate in the world.
  9. Even though 300 species of squid have been identified and classified, it is believed there are at least 200 more that still need to be evaluated. Now that's a lot of squid!
  10. Some species of squid have been found to live more than 13,000 feet deep in the water - that's about 43 football fields in length.
