Speed runs tends to baffle me. I feel like I take ages at games; yet, there are all these new speed runs popping up. Speed runs for Legend of Zelda, Super Mario, Metroid, and Pokemon all clock in at crazy times. Well, the latest is speedrunner Siglemic completed Super Mario 64 in just under two hours. He collected all 120 stars in 1:43:54 which beats his world record by 7 seconds. Wow.
The Pokemon Company recently released a new trailer as well as two new teasers for their upcoming Pokemon the Movie: Diancie and the Cocoon of Destruction. They also released an introduction video for Darkrai, which will be available as a special gift so advance ticket buyers. For all the viewers seeing the film in theaters, Diancie will be given out (as you may or may not already know, Diancie was a one of the Pokemon who was leaked by hackers a couple months ago).
Earlier this week I reported that director of X-Men: Days of Future Past Bryan Singer expressed interest in adding more mutants to his next project, X-Men: Age of Apocalypse. I mentioned Gambit as a potential candidate, and it looks like 22 Jump Street star Channing Tatum is in talks with Fox to play the Ragin’ Cajun.
When it comes to Dragon Ball Z fighting games, they are kind of mixed in execution. Sure, you can play as some of your favorite Z fighters, but that doesn't always compensate for terrible gameplay (I'm looking at you Dragon Ball Z Ultimate Battle 22 and Dragon Ball GT Final Bout), but some of them are quite decent as well, such as the Budokai and Budokai Tenkaichi entries, although recently the latest 3D DBZ games have been quite mediocre. However, a few independent fans have made a customized Dragon Ball Z game that is perhaps the coolest Dragon Ball Z game, and it puts some of the other official entries to shame. Introducing: Hyper Dragon Ball Z.
I'm sure already know that X-Men: Days of Future Past, the next X-Men film directed by Bryan Singer and written by Simon Kinberg, is probably one of the most epic superhero films ever. Not only have they included both the original and new X-Men cast, but they're introducing many new characters to the big screen for the first time. The first trailer gave everyone a good look at the grim future our mutant heroes would face, then the second trailer showed off a lot of action and destruction. Well, with a little over a month until its release, we finally get one more trailer, giving us a better look at the story, more action, and more witty dialogue from the franchise's protagonist, Wolverine.
In November, family and fans were dealt a shocking blow when Paul Walker died in a car accident over Thanksgiving weekend. Filming on the Fast and Furious 7 set was immediately halted so that the cast could grieve and production could figure out how to finish the movie with the scenes Paul had already shot. Well, it looks like they will enlist the help of Paul’s brothers, Caleb and Cody Walker to fill in for the final scenes.
For those who don't know, there's a live-action Street Fighter series coming out titled Street Fighter: Assassin's Fist, which will tell the early upbringings of the franchise's two main characters, Ryu and Ken. The project took years to develop until it finally began shooting last July. Well, it premieres next month, and we finally have our first trailer, featuring Ryu.
X-Men: Days of Future Past won’t be hitting theatres until next month, but hasn’t stopped director Bryan Singer and writer/producer Simon Kinberg from already making progress on X-Men: Apocalypse, the next installment in Fox’s mutant franchise.
The first trailer to the Michael Bay produced and Jonathan Liebesman directed Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles released last month, and while it still got the mixed reaction everyone expected, there were a good amount of supporters after seeing how the film finally looked like (though, most of the complaints were regarding the turtles' designs). The one thing missing in the trailer though was Splinter, but thanks to a new TV spot, we finally get to see how he looks like... kinda.
