Top Ten Marvel Villains to Adapt to Live Action

Kotaku - Sat, 04/25/2015 - 13:30

Last week I posted lists of twenty different Marvel heroes/teams we haven’t seen adapted to live action. To be honest, I’m amazed that I was able to get twenty good choices for heroes that we haven’t seen in live action. This list, however, is much, much easier to write. I could expand it to twenty plus easily.

New Resident Evil Revelations 2 Costumes Hit Stores Today

Just Push Start - Sat, 04/25/2015 - 04:45

rerev2 new costumes

Capcom’s multiplayer-centric Raid Mode for Resident Evil Revelations 2 will soon gets some fresh duds for some of your favorite characters.

While I’m a little bummed out that these don’t actually add any new characters to the game, I’m a bit thankful that I don’t have to grind up another character in Raid Mode. By the time you’re reading this, Capcom will have already begun rolling out updates across the console platforms for Resident Evil Revelations 2 (PS3 should follow shortly!), bringing with it new costumes for certain characters as well as an online Raid Mode patch for Xbox One. The character costumes are as follows:

Lady Hunk (Gina)
Rachel (Gina)
Mutant Pedro (Pedro)
Lottie the Bear (Cipher)

To make up for the delay of online Raid Mode for Xbox One, Capcom will be giving out 20,000 RE points for those that have signed up on the Xbox One, handy for getting some extra gold or other boosts for Resident Evil Revelations 2.

Gears of War Remake for Xbox One Reportedly in Testing

gamrFeed - Sat, 04/25/2015 - 04:00

It looks like a remaster of the original Gears of War is genuinely happening.

Rumours have been swirling for some time regarding a potential remaster, although a carefully worded denial last month by Black Tusk's Rod Fergusson seemed to shoot down the idea.

Rumours resurfaced yesterday, however, with this article by Polygon, which claimed that sources had told the website that a remaster was indeed in the works.

To add further fuel to the fire, today Kotaku is reporting that three play-testers have confirmed to Kotaku that a remaster for the original Gears of War - and only the original Gears of War - is being developed by Splash Damage (Brink).

Animal Crossing Club Nintendo Mini Playing Cards are Really Small

Just Push Start - Sat, 04/25/2015 - 03:01

When Nintendo announced that they were discontinuing Club Nintendo, there was a lot of disappointment and excitement in regards to the final rewards. Since then Nintendo has started to send out these final rewards, leading to a lot of mixed reactions. Like the Majora’s Mask 3D messenger bag was similar to what we expected, but nowhere near as nice as the preview image lead us to believe. Now that the Animal Crossing mini playing cards are being sent out, how well do they stack up to expectations and previous offerings?

DSC_0519 DSC_0520 DSC_0526

On paper the Animal Crossing mini playing cards sounded like the best value offered on Club Nintendo. For a mere 600 coins you were given two decks (one male, one female) of cards featuring the colorful cast of characters from Animal Crossing. The only question is how “mini” is mini? Despite the listing itself giving you its exact size, 2.36w x 1.57h if you’re curious, it’s hard to really conceptualize the size without pulling out a ruler or siting down and really thinking about it. Even if you compared it to the original full size deck of Animal Crossing cards, which was 3.75 x 2.6 x 1 inches, it doesn’t sound like that much of a downgrade.

However, when you compare the item to something else, the small size becomes immediately apparent. Not only are the cards tiny, they’re also hard to play with, hold, use, or find any real use for besides novelty or perhaps farming. Thats not to say some won’t enjoy them as a deck of travel cards, but odds are you won’t find a functional use for them.

Despite the cards having limited functional use, they have a lot of minor touches that make the product quite interesting. The decks themselves have characters on the fold (K.K. Slider on the blue ones, Tom Nook on the pink ones) and inside flaps, which give a real sense of presentation that was lacking in the Majora’s Mask 3D messenger bag, which wasn’t even covered outside of the package it came in.

The cards themselves are actually quite lovely. Each one features a different character, with said characters name included (in Japanese mind you), with a lot of color/charm from the series. The two decks share images, so don’t think there are a total of 108 designs, with their main difference being the color on the back of the cards.

Overall the cards were a neat touch and nice that you get a second deck to use, mess up or give to a friend, but much like the Majora’s Mask 3D messenger bag, this feels like another product that very few people will actually use. Hopefully the Zelda pouch will be better, though we already know it’s lower quality than the previous pouches.
