By Patrick Cavanaugh - November 9, 2017 04:49 pm EST Share 0 Comments 0 After a seven-year absence, the Saw franchise returns to theaters this weekend with Jigsaw, a film that was originally known as Saw: Legacy. Once a staple of the Halloween experience, the latest film aims to reinvigorate the franchise and dominate the world of horror once again. The original film debuted at the Sundance Film Festival in 2004, quickly becoming a bit mythical around the horror world for its disturbing concept and graphic violence. In October of that year, the film premiered in theaters across the country, becoming a huge success, especially given its minuscule budget. As the film never relied on major stars and often played out in only a handful of locations, the format could regularly, and quickly, be repeated for follow-up films. Up until 2010, a new Saw film would hit theaters the Friday before Halloween, providing audiences with plenty of blood and guts to get into the … [Read more...] about Ranking All 7 Films in the ‘Saw’ Series

The final The Witcher Netflix series trailer has arrived – and it comes with two stark warnings. Firstly, Geralt's rapidly discovering that there's plenty to worry about in his immediate future. Second: never, ever touch Roach. Ever. Watch the Witcher Netflix series trailer above and drink in the screen-filling battles. This is The Witcher as you’ve always wanted it – though there are still no sign of Gwent.Let's talk about the battles. While there’s plenty of Geralt going mano-a-mano with several sword-wielding knights throughout the trailer – and even Yennefer gets involved in one standoff – you might be surprised to see big, open fields filled with onrushing armies. With the potential for those climactic clashes combining with political sabotage and subterfuge, it’s easy to see why some fans are already likening The Witcher to Game of Thrones.Away from the bigger picture on The Continent, Geralt is still running his personal witching … [Read more...] about The final Witcher Netflix series trailer focuses on big monsters and even bigger battles
Home • PC Game News • Aer • 26 Nathan Grayson Contributor 20th September 2013 / 3:00PM I really like it when videogames are beautiful. Not just in the “OMG graphics so realistic that I must existentially entertain the notion that the entire universe could just be a hyper-advanced computer simulation” sense, either. I’m talking about games that create a glittering maw of sights and sounds that licks its lips and proceeds to swallow me whole. These overwhelming visions of other worlds – places I’ve never even dreamed of, but now desperately long to live in. Aer, if I’m very, very lucky, will turn out to be one such experience. It’s a gorgeous sandbox adventure set in a strange, naturalistic, old sky world. You play as a girl who can transform into a bird at will, as we all secretly wish we could. Wowzers. Reminds me of both Journey and Zelda: The Wind Waker, which are the only two good console games. … [Read more...] about Bird Is The Word: Aer Looks Ethereally Brilliant
Home • PC Game Reviews • Torment: Tides of Numenera • 15 For those new to torment Alec Meer Contributor 28th February 2017 / 8:00AM You do not know the past of Torment, and so chose to hear everything. No, you don’t need to have played 1999 weird fantasy roleplaying game Planescape: Torment to enjoy this spiritual sequel. There are references and commonalities, but they’re not in any way necessary to understand or appreciate it. What is required is a reasonable degree of patience, and an enjoyment of reading and of big ideas. Torment: Tides of Numenera does contain action, and many of its situations can be resolved with violence if you so choose, but to do so would be to cut yourself off from the game it most wants to be. The game is one of obtaining as much information as you can, and then making decisions with often far-reaching and sometimes tragic consequences based on your analysis of that information. I don’t mean simply … [Read more...] about Wot I Think – Torment: Tides of Numenera (for series newcomers)
By Jenna Anderson - December 11, 2019 10:35 pm EST Share 0 Comments 0 Watchmen has given fans one of the most consistently-entertaining mysteries on television, as the iconic DC Comics graphic novel gets updated for a new era. Last week's episode was certainly no exception, as it provided a massive link to John Osterman/Dr. Manhattan, the blue superhuman who played a pivotal role in the comics. To an extent, that twist had been hiding in plain sight in the world of the show -- and it might have even been lurking in its teaser poster. The poster, which you can check out below, shows Angela Abar/Sister Night (Regina King) standing in her vigilante attire in front of the iconic yellow clock, while she happens to be bathed in a blue light. Given what we know now - that Angela fell in love with Dr. Manhattan, and he's been hiding in Tulsa as her husband, Cal Abar (Yahya Abdul-Mateen II) - the fact that Angela is enveloped in blue light is certainly poetic. For those … [Read more...] about Has the Watchmen Poster Been Hiding a Spoiler This Whole Time?
