Paul Bettany to Portray The Vision in Avengers 2


Kudos for you who saw this coming (and my condolences to those still hoping that it would be Agent Coulson). Today, it has been announced that Paul Bettany will be playing The Vision in the upcoming Avengers movie: Marvel’s ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron. For those unfamiliar with Bettany, you may have seen him in films such as The DaVinci Code, A Beautiful Mind, and A Knight’s Tale. But he isn’t new to the realm of Marvel’s Cinematic Universe, since he’s also the voice of Tony Stark’s armor AI, JARVIS.

I feel this is a logical approach for introducing The Vision for the Marvel movies, since JARVIS has been part of the MCU since Iron Man 1. Also, Bettany has the chops to pull off the wall-phasing android. If you agree or disagree, let us know in the comments.

We get to see the whole Sonic team in this action/adventure title, which seems to take a few cues from Sonic Heroes. As of right now, the game is stated to be released on the WiiU and 3DS. No word on if it will be released on other consoles.

Sonic Boom: Series Relaunch


At the Year of Sonic press event today in New York City, we finally got a glimpse of the new designs of Sonic and friends. We’ll be seeing these designs in future cartoons, games, comics, and merchandise. As of right now, it is unknown whether or not this will be the new main continuity of Sonic or just a spin-off. All we know, the designers are clearly a fan of sports tap. Hell, it’s even on the goddamn shoes!


What do you guys think of this redesign? Let us know in the comments.

Also, along with these designs, Sanic, Sonic’s deformed brother, got a makeover as well. Gotta love that tape.1391713313913

Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate Coming to US and Europe in 2015

Took you long enough, Capcom. We finally got confirmation that the upcoming updated version of Monster Hunter 4 for the Nintendo 3DS (Monster Hunter 4G in Japan) will be released to the West as Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate. The original iteration of the game, Monster Hunter 4, was released in Japan on September 14, 2013, to much acclaim and success. Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate will build upon the changes already established in MH4, which has more fluid 3-dimensional combat (you can climb and attack from walls and ceilings), new weapons, a new Guild Quest system, and, of course, new monsters to hunt. Monster Hunter 4 also has online multiplayer along with  local play and Streetpass functionality.

Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate is set to be released in the US and Europe in early 2015. I got my fingers across for a Wii U port, akin to Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate. Maybe that can help out the struggling console.


League of Legends Preseason 4

Most people will already know this, but the 3rd season of League of Legends has come to a close, which means your ranking from last season has already been locked in.  More importantly though, it means that it’s time for some patches, and I mean big patches. This preseason 4 patch launched 11/21 in the US and so far has been incredibly controversial.

One of the main reasons for all the controversy in this patch is that many people feel that it has eliminated or really caused the jungler to become unnecessary.  Not only were the jungle camps made harder plus the addition of an extra neutral monster, but duo lane supports gold generation was increased so drastically that jungler’s are having a hard time fitting into the new meta.

Besides some of the basic jungle changes, new items and “tokens” have been added into the game. Tokens are reusable items that, while very temporary in their time on the map, allow for free wards, sentry wards, or clairvoyance uses by non support characters.  This is a very welcome addition that will allow low level players to get a feel for using wards and increasing vision, which is an issue many people have while learning.  The other big addition was the 3 new support tree items. All of these new items are replacing the old gold generation items and allowing for a very simple way of getting your supports farmed as well.

These items are:

ancient coin -> nomads medallion -> talisman of ascension

spelltheif’s edge -> frostfang -> Frost Queen’s Claim

relic shield -> targon’s brace -> Face of the Mountain

All these items are extremely strong at gold generation and are the main reasons why junglers are falling out of favor. Many people also feel that targon’s brace on both ad carry and support because of the insane strength in lane of that item in particular.  The last two big changes as well were the introduction of new mastery trees, as well as the One For All mode, in which each team can only play one champion.  It’s not competitive in the least, but it is fun.  We’ll have to see if these changes are modified before season 4 really begins.

As an extra note, Brad and I will be playing and recording some matches for league in the future to get you guys an idea about some of the changes going on.  While we are not experts in the least, it should be fun. So look forward to that.
