Guess who saw an early screening of Winter Soldier and had his mind completely blown away. This guy.
For his ongoing “Playing With History” series, Australian graphic artist Kode Logic takes iconic photos from history and pop culture and blends them with everything from X-Men to Mortal Kombat. Take a look.
American poet and philosopher, Henry David Thoreau once said, “This world is but a canvas to our imagination.” Nothing seems to emphasise the concept of art being all around us quite like the idea of theme based slot machines. With online gambling sites like jackpotjoy Bingo, we find endless examples of fantastically themed slots, although the true art can be found outside of the web, with the ‘read deal’ slot machines. Film themed slots are personally my favourite, deeper analyzing how creators have transformed a film and its complex ideas into a gambling machine is rather interesting. Here are seven of my favourite film themed slot machines.
With the holiday season upon us, you’re most likely running around in a frenzy trying to figure out the perfect gifts for those in your life. While holiday presents may not be a huge deal to you, it always feels good to get the right item for those you love and care about the most. Although your high maintenance friends and family members may seem like they’d be the hardest to please, those with unique hobbies or fetishes can be even more difficult to shop for. Luckily, anime lovers aren’t that difficult, and there are a variety of cool anime gift ideas to choose from. Here are some anime holiday presents that are sure to please even the most discerning anime fan.
If I’m not mistaken, the Dreamcast has the most special editions and variations of any home console. Up there in rarity along with the Maziora Dreamcast and the Seaman Christmas Dreamcast is the Biohazard Code: Veronica Claire Edition, which included a transparent blood red system, a matching controller, a gray VMU with the game’s logo, a special metallic card inside a fancy case, and of course, the limited edition of the game itself. This console was limited to 1,800 pieces and goes for between $740 and $1,000, depending on how many pieces of the bundle are included and their condition.
Sega and Capcom also released a S.T.A.R.S. edition, which was a transparent dark blue and featured a S.T.A.R.S. logo. The Claire version is way sexier, though the S.T.A.R.S. one was much more limited, as only 200 were produced.
Limited Edition is a new column that highlights some special editions of games, consoles, and peripherals that you might not have seen before. We’ll kick things off with the Square Millennium Collection version of Final Fantasy Tactics.
This came with the game, playing cards, and a desk clock, all packaged in a classy box. All of the bonuses include art by Akihiko Yoshida, who is known for his work on the series.
It gets pretty lonely when you’re spewing out content on a Tumblr dashboard for people to reblog and like and never comment on. I’ve been writing for Albotas since 2009. I see cool stuff, I post it — Robby and Marc do the same.
But I’ve been needing some action. We need some feedback. We want people to talk!
So I think I’m going to post a weekly question to get some discussion going in our comments. I will be doing a quick write-up on some discussions if they’re entertaining enough, and everyone who chimes in will be getting their name out there in said write-up. Let’s tighten up, guys! We’ll make ya feel good. ;)
I’m kicking things off tonight because I’m bored out of my mind and would love to speak with some of our readers for once.
My question to everyone is: How are you guys gifting this year? How kickass is your present giving? Are you giving people shitty gifts on purpose or do you have a really cool, inventive, touching backstory to your presents for others this holiday season? I wanna see photos, I wanna hear stories, I wanna see discussion.
Don’t embarrass me. Hit the read more button to jump to our page and reply in the comment section. I might even be generous enough to gift one of you guys something for a good enough comment.
I understand completely that Hollywood will continue to create comic book and superhero-related films. I get that they’re going to be blockbusters, regardless of the hero and studios involved, as well as the producers, directors, and even casting calls.
You may or may not have noticed the impact The Avengers has had on every other super hero film being announced or prepping its release. In case you haven’t noticed, consider the fact that we’re seeing a Fantastic Four and X-Men crossover film, Wonder Woman is being introduced in the upcoming Batman and Superman film, and we’re seeing a huge surge of villains in the upcoming Spider-Man sequels.
Here’s some thoughts on a post-Avengers Hollywood, how it’s affected superhero movies, and how it’s going to continue to pull in more unbelievable hype.
I’ve always liked Akira. But a recent viewing of the movie blew my mind.
