  • Switch was last month's bestselling console

    3 weeks ago

    BrianGaar

    The good times keep rolling for the Switch -- and for Nintendo in general.


    The NPD Group reports that the Switch was the top selling console in the US for the month of October, followed by the Super NES Classic Edition at number two. In addition, when you combine that with the 3DS systems, Nintendo's systems made up two-thirds of ALL consoles sold in the United States for the second month in a row.


    As for games, Super Mario Odyssey was the top selling game of the month -- which is even more impressive, considering that it launched on Oct. 27. 


    In all, we might be seeing a bit of an upswing in console sales -- more than 1 million units of console hardware were sold in October, which is the first time that's happened since 2011.

  • Watch The Rock Play Rampage! First trailer here!

    3 weeks ago

    ericvespe

    Rampage is an interesting movie to me. Unlike most video game to movie adaptations there's not a lot you can fuck up with this one. You just gotta have big monster versions of regular animals destroying a city and you're good.


    The Rock stars as a buddy to George, an albino gorilla who gets some green space dust on him or something and grows super big. Now, The Rock's gonna protect his buddy and what we get is a Boy and His Giant White Gorilla movie with a huge wolf and crocodile thrown into the mix.


    I do miss the more werewolf look to "Ralph" and the more Godzilla look to "Lizzie", but I guess they figure they have to ground an adaptation of Rampage into some kind of recognizable reality. I can tell from the trailer that Dwayne Johnson and Jeffrey Dean Morgan are chewing up the scenery when the big CG creatures aren't on screen.

  • Top 10 Ninja - Editor Notes

    3 weeks ago

    JoshuaKazemi ScrewAttack Editor

    Another week, another look into the mind of a ninja editor. That's right.


    10 - Storm Shadow - The all white is cool but it does seem like you're making it a lot harder for yourself, dude. Also remember when Channing Tatum was an awful actor?? I mean, he's not amazing now or anything but he's been in a lot of solid stuff since G.I. Joe. 
    9 - Psylocke - I was bummed that X-Men: Apocalypse was so bad. Anyone else?
    8 - Raphael - Sooo, let's just say someone was looking to watch and/or read some TMNT. Where's the good stuff? Where should they start? Asking for a ninja. 
    7 - Mai Shiranui - Sorry, what did you say?
    6 - Batman - The artwork for The Animated Series is GORGEOUS. #ThatsMyBatman 
    5 - Scorpion - Angry about Sub-Zero? GET OVER IT. 
    4 - Raiden - Not calling him "Raiden the Ripper" seems like a real missed opportunity.
    3 - Ryu - Really random thought: I love working here. The creative and collaborative environment is inspiring. 
    2 - Strider - I'm dead now. Nick killed me. 
    1 - Sasuke - Naruto!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (Any chance I get to joke around with the lower third titles, I will)
    11 - Shinobi - This seems illegal?

  • Titanic returning to theaters for its 20th Birthday!

    3 weeks ago

    ericvespe

    Holy shit does this make me feel old. Titanic is turning 20 this year and to celebrate there's going to be a limited re-release of the movie into theaters December 1st.




    The film will be playing exclusively in AMC Dolby Cinemas (check the list here to see if it's playing near you) in both 2D and 3D Dolby Vision. Dolby Vision, if you're curious, is essentially Dolby's proprietary HDR system, so that just means this has been remastered in Ultra HD HDR and will be projected that way. Super bright and crisp.


    Titanic is one of the great big screen movies and I'm always happy to see the studios embrace the re-release. There's nothing like seeing an audience-pleasing classic projected nicely with a big, enthusiastic crowd. They did one of those kinda crappy Fathom Event things with Jaws last year and I took my then 9 year old nephew to see it big and he was enraptured even though we'd already watched it on TV.


    Movies were meant to be seen big and every time one of these limited re-releases does well it gives me hope that we'll continue to see classics restored and projected.



  • Hope you like James Franco 'cause you're about to get a whole lot of him!

    3 weeks ago

    ericvespe

    10-james-franco.jpg



    James Franco is having a good year. He directed and starred in a movie called The Disaster Artist, about the making of the legendarily bad movie The Room (not the one with Brie Larson and the cute kid, the other one with the bad acting and gratuitous middle aged flexing man-butt closeups), which is great and is already being whispered about for awards consideration. 


    That good year is going full steam ahead with the latest word from The Hollywood Reporter that Franco is being courted by Fox to join the X-Men Universe as Jamie Madrox aka Multiple Man. 



    104289-187396-madrox.jpg



    Multiple Man's power, if you can't deduce from the name, is to create duplicate copies of himself and anything he's wearing. He's one of the trippier mutants in that each duplicate has his own independent thought and is telepathically connected to Jamie Prime, who can re-absorb the dupe at any time. That means he creates copies of himself, send them out into the world, reabsorb them and have all their new memories. That means he has a huge amount of memories, some of them conflicting, knocking around in his head.


    Simon Kinberg, who is pretty much the big comic book dude at Fox, is leading the negotiations with Franco and the idea is that Multiple Man will get his own movie, not necessarily be folded into an existing team right away. In the comics Madrox was a key player in the X-Factor series, as was Wolfsbane who will be introduced in another X-Men spin-off movie The New Mutants and will be played by Game of Thrones' Maise Williams. Could this mean Fox is building up to a new team? Perhaps.


    The deal isn't done yet, but it seems to be close and Fox has already tapped one of Wonder Woman's screenwriters, Allan Heinberg, to pen the Multiple Man movie, so I'd say this one looks like it just might actually happen.

  • Bungie Details Destiny 2 Curse of Osiris Expansion

    3 weeks ago

    Eddy Writer - The Know

    Eyes up, Guardians, because Destiny 2 is about to get a whole lot more content soon thanks to the first expansion -- and fortunately, Bungie has now detailed some of what we can expect from the upcoming Curse of Osiris. The developers held a livestream yesterday, giving loads of information about the game, including the fact that we’ll learn more of the mysterious Osiris, and that the story takes place a few months after the events of the main game, with the Vex getting up to no good on Mercury. 


    There will also be new playable areas on Mercury like the Infinite Forest, which offers new combinations of enemies each time you visit, as well as a new Raid Lair unlocked on the Leviathan, with new activities and a new boss. One nice reveal is that Raid Lairs also offer short form activities to do with 5 friends, which aren’t quite as big of a time investment as proper raids. Plus, Heroic Strikes are back! And of course, you’ll also have access to new gear and a higher light level of 335. Curse of Osiris launches December 5.

    If you didn't know, I'm a really big fan of the holiday season!  I also have a lot of experience running online secret santas (I started the one the reddit does).  


    We didn't have enough time this year to put together a full secret santa (but we hope to work with the community next year to figure this out).  So, we decided to put together a holiday card exchange.  We've done these in the past at reddit and it's a really fun way to connect with another community member.  I have signed up and will be putting together a whole package for my recipient :)

  • Justice League Is Choppy And Sloppy, But Not Awful.

    3 weeks ago

    ericvespe

    landscape-1504266508-justice-league-1.jp


    Justice League is finally here. The production has gone through many ups and downs over the last year and some change, but that's not necessarily an indicator of poor quality. The Wizard of Oz changed directors mid-stream (no less than four directors had a hand in bringing that classic to life believe it or not), Lord of the Rings lost their first Aragorn, Stuart Townsend, after four days of shooting and Robert Zemeckis reshot half of Back to the Future after Eric Stoltz didn't work out in the role of Marty McFly.


    Filmmaking is a huge undertaking with thousands of moving parts and constantly shifting situations that have be dealt with every other minute. Every film is a troubled production in one way or another. There's always some drama and hurt feelings and conflicting ideas and interests. That's just how the creative process for this art form works.


    The only time that becomes a real problem for a film is when all that behind the scenes conflict shows up in the finished product. And it certainly does with Justice League.


    Now, Justice League isn't an awful movie. In fact in tone and character realization it's a giant step in the right direction for the DC Extended Universe. The problem is it's choppy, sloppy and all over the map in its plotting and structure. The worst thing I can say about the movie is it feels premature. The groundwork hasn't been done enough to really set up the threat and as such Steppenwolf and his horde of CG bug men don't feel like a big enough threat to demand that Earth's remaining heroes team up to stop them.


    I never felt that this was a task that Wonder Woman couldn't handle on her own, for instance. Batman might have an issue facing Steppenwolf alone and Cyborg and Flash were too new at the game to stare him down, but I think Diana Prince could have had him handled. It would have been a challenge, but when she's flanked by the most powerful dudes on the planet it's like setting the game on easy mode, which isn't all that fun for a thrill-seeking audience.


    What you want in a movie like this is the feeling of real stakes. You want to see a challenge for your protagonists to overcome and in the case of these big group movies like Justice League or The Avengers that means the challenge has to be supersized, even if only on a personal level.


    I feel Captain America: Civil War was a great recent example of seeing those smaller scale challenges played out. Zemo's not the flashiest villain. He's not a giant CG monster with an army of aliens behind him. He's just a guy out for revenge and in tackling the personal issues between the MCU characters he does something no other villain succeeded at: he split them apart. There's permanent damage done between Tony Stark and Steve Rogers by the end of that movie. They will probably play well together again when it comes time for Infinity War, but nothing will ever be the same.


    Steppenwolf cuts a fine silhouette and is shown laying waste to some powerful adversaries pretty early on (being vague to avoid real deal spoilers!), but at the end of the day he's relegated to being a final boss battle instead of a character. He's so one-dimensional. Steppenwolf is a bad guy that wants to destroy Earth because... that's what he does. He's tried it before, but he's really going to do it this time! Why does he want to? Because, that's why.


    They got a great actor to play him in Ciaran Hinds (you'll remember him as Mance Rayder on Game of Thrones), but there's just no depth to the character. He's not mysteriously threatening, either. He's just a big CG guy with a fire ax that wants them sweet, sweet motherboxes so he can turn the world red.


    The problem is his invasion isn't handled with any flair. In the very first scene we see Batman hunting down the Parademons (Steppenwolf's winged minions). They're already here. There's no sense of “what the hell is going on?!?” from Batman, there's no impending sense of doom or dread. Winged humanoid demons just exists around Gotham now.


    The big scene we get to set up just how powerful Steppenwolf is a narrated flashback that is essentially the prologue to Lord of the Rings except with Amazonians, Atlanteans, Gods, men and a few other geeky surprises thrown in. It's so close to LOTR you'll laugh. You have motherboxes that act like the Rings of Power. Seriously, they split them up between races to keep them from being together.


    Steppenwolf only gets one really great sequence and that involves a showdown on Themyscira. You see his ability as a warrior there that hinted at him being strong enough to require a super friends team to take him out, but then he spends the rest of the movie hiding. It's seriously his whole game plan.


    So, knowing that the villain is kind of Generic Bad Guy, how does the heroic side of the equation measure up? Surprisingly well. There are some problems, especially centered around Ben Affleck's Batman, but on the whole the reason this movie is worth seeing is because of this cast and how they interact with each other.


    Since I brought him up, let's talk a little about...


    Batman. I may not be a big fan of Batman v Superman, but I thought Affleck's Batman was pretty on point. His big fight scene in that movie (the one that felt like one of the Arkham games come to life) was a highlight and I think he looks great in the suit. I don't know if it's a choice or Affleck is already tired of playing the character, but Bruce Wayne/Batman just feels beat all the time here. The dude looks tired. He's low energy and a little bit of a woe-is-me Eeyore.


    I mean, I now Batman is supposed to be moody, but he's also supposed to radiate confidence. The character in this movie is shook by the death of Superman and the role he had to play in that coming to pass. Great! That's what we call depth and we like depth. The problem is there's no journey for him here other than getting a group together. I don't feel like Batman ends this movie in a radically different place from where he began. If you're going to put him through hell there's got to be some kind of catharsis moment for him and we never get that. We see him act a little more selflessly (to the point of almost being suicidal), but he's not the confident Dark Knight that you kind of want him to be.


    Superman. This is a tough one to talk about without delving into spoilers, but I will say that I'm very happy that they've seemed to learn their lesson from previous films. I won't say in what form or circumstance he's in this movie, but it's nice to see the character represented as the Big Blue Boy Scout again, not the sad God with the world on his shoulders. Cavill has really relaxed in the role and I'm excited to see what direction we go in with further on-screen Superman appearances.


    Wonder Woman. Gal Gadot is the DCEU's single best decision so far and she doesn't let us down in this one. Diana doesn't have has much time to shine as she did in her own movie (naturally), but she radiates goodness and it's a much needed counterbalance to the muscled up testosterone around her. She gets a little moment where she has to grapple with the fact that she has been helping, but only from the shadows and not from a position to inspire others, that is some ripe stuff to play with, but because everything feels so quick and condensed it doesn't really have any time to grow into an interesting character moment. Instead we just get her being badass and kind in equal measures. Not a bad thing to settle for.


    Aquaman. I wasn't sold on Jason Mamoa in this role, to be honest, but him playing the character as a lovable, swaggering asshole is pretty great. All the stuff we get to see involving his underwater kingdom is cool, his position within the team is pretty neat and there's a fantastic moment with him being a big dickhead to the group that I'm 99% sure is all Joss Whedon. Aquaman is having fun and so is Mamoa. That goes a long way in a film like this. His character suffers a little bit from WB fast-forwarding the MCU playbook and jumping right into the big team movie, but it's not a big jump for audiences to buy him as part of the team.


    Cyborg. Victor Stone is testing his new powers when we first meet him. He's fighting between the robot part of him and the still remaining human side, but it's one of those things that looks great on paper, but in the actual movie it's not explored enough. He's great in that every day he's discovering something new about his abilities, but they don't really have fun with that. There's a great moment where his body reads a friendly character as a threat and auto-defenses kick in against his will, but it's a one-and-done moment. How much more interesting would it have been if he spent the whole movie an indispensable member of the team that could turn on them at any moment? Much more, I think. Ray Fisher does a good job with the character, but I hope they give him a little more to work with in future outings.


    Flash. Ezra Miller is great in this part. He's got the right attitude, enthusiasm, nervousness and quirks for the part and immediately fills the role of the team's little brother. His backstory is again breezed by (yuk-yuk-yuk) and makes you wish his standalone movie happened BEFORE the big team up one, but I think you'll be happy with him in the red suit. He has by far my favorite moment in the film, which again I won't spoil, but look out for his “oh shit” face and you'll know you're in the best scene of the movie. You'll know it when you see it.


    On the whole, the movie is fractured. You definitely get a too many cooks vibe from it, but the one constant is the chemistry the cast shares. Even in some of the less well-written scenes you dig this cast and roll with some of the clunkers they have to speak. The sense of fun that we've been wanting for a while is back, which is a good thing. Now we just need a singular voice to come in and give this super powered group a real challenge. That's what I want more than anything in future DCEU movies. I want to legitimately wonder how our lead will prevail.


    It'll be interesting to see where the DCEU goes from here. It feels like they finally have the right combination of ingredients and the compass needle is finally pointing to true north, but they haven't gotten everything together yet.


    DC fans will gobble this up just because they get so much of the character stuff right, superhero fans in general will probably dig it as pure escapist entertainment, but if you're at all worn out by the deluge of comic book movies then Justice League will likely test your patience with its plot conveniences and pockets of character-summary exposition.

  • Bob Rosspool urges you to keep your pants dry and your dreams wet!

    3 weeks ago

    ericvespe

    I'm seriously going to have to ask Fox to continue to make Deadpool movies just so we can keep getting these amazing smart-ass teases. The first real teaser trailer for Deadpool 2 is... unlike anything you're used to seeing in the realm of the superhero movie. RT fans are pretty familiar with happy painter Bob Ross, but I doubt you guys expected the first Deadpool 2 trailer to be Bob Rossified.


    Well, it is and it's just as awesome as you could possibly imagine. Check it out:



    It may be light on actual Deadpool 2 footage, but I'd honestly be happy to keep seeing these kinds of trailers all the way up to release. Can you imagine sitting down in a theater on June 1st next year and not having anything remotely ruined for you? If there's a series that can make that work it's Deadpool. I doubt it'll happen, but a guy can dream, can't he?


    The studio is already playing with the traditional way of marketing this kind of movie and not just with the above trailer. Usually when press releases go out, even for zany comedies, they're pretty deadly serious. There's a link to the new available trailer, a release date, plot synopsis and a little text about what the news is. The plot synopsis included for Deadpool 2 is something special. I'll leave you with this slice of fried gold:


    SYNOPSIS:

    After surviving a near fatal bovine attack, a disfigured cafeteria chef (Wade
    Wilson) struggles to fulfill his dream of becoming Mayberry's hottest
    bartender while also learning to cope with his lost sense of taste.
    Searching to regain his spice for life, as well as a flux capacitor,
    Wade must battle ninjas, the yakuza, and a pack of sexually aggressive
    canines, as he journeys around the world to discover the importance of
    family, friendship, and flavor - finding a new taste for adventure and
    earning the coveted coffee mug title of World's Best Lover.

    James Buckley, Honorary Achievement Hunter


    I’m really excited to finally announce this partnership. We’ve loved working with James in let’s plays and podcasts, particularly alongside Achievement Hunter.

So it’s official, James Buckley and his channel “Completed It Mate” are part of the Let’s Play family and he is bestowed the title of Honorary Achievement Hunter. 


    For those of you who are unfamiliar with James’s work… get a Netflix account! James is a veteran actor from the UK and you can watch him in the classic series (and movies) The Inbetweeners and recent hit White Gold. He’s also the star of a great fantasy-comedy Zapped, which you can watch on the channel Dave. Yes, England is an exotic country where pudding is made of meat and TV channels go by their first name.


    We’re looking forward to more good times with James and we hope you are, too.


    BedBananas and Tomato Gaming


    I’m really happy to announce we’re completing our partnership with the three man hive-mind of Criken, Bed, and Tomato


    Bed joined us for our amazing PUBG with Everyone collab. He’s best known for his high concept machinima series and semi-roleplay let’s plays. Tomato is an expert at pushing games to their breaking point to capture some of the funniest multiplayer moments. Like Criken and Bed, he blends the real and surreal with roleplay.


    We’re just getting started with these guys and hope to have more announcements coming your way soon.


    There you have it! Great way to cruise into the new year. I’m sure I’ll be back here soon enough with more to discuss with you guys.

  • GameStop Puts Rental Memberships on Hold

    3 weeks ago

    Eddy Writer - The Know

    If you were looking forward to participating in GameStop's PowerPass Program... well, you might have to wait a little bit longer. GameStop has announced that they're putting the program -- which allows gamers to rent unlimited used games for 6 months at a $60 price point -- on hold for the time being. PowerPass was originally supposed to have its soft launch this week, but according to GameStop employees who spoke with Kotaku, the company's systems just weren't equipped to handle all those transactions. A more official response was also sent to Kotaku by a GameStop spokesperson: “We have elected to temporarily pause the roll out of the new PowerPass subscription service, based on a few program limitations we have identified. We feel this is the right thing to do for now to ensure we are able to provide our guests an exceptional service." PowerPass was definitely an interesting strategy from the retailer, especially after the launch of Xbox's GamePass. We'll see how well it does... once it finally gets off the ground.

  • Clarification on Today's MDB Announcement

    Hey, everyone!


    We’ve seen your messages today and I just need to clarify some wrong information that was put out earlier. The new additional videos of Million Dollars, But… that are coming to Facebook on Monday are definitely not Season 5. These are five special, experimental “Theme Pack” videos that we were only able to produce thanks to this partnership with Facebook. Without this deal, I wouldn’t have been able to pull off some of the crazy shit that you’ll see. 


    And more good news beyond getting more MDB - we're now able to fast track Season 5, which will be coming to RoosterTeeth.com - for our FIRST members first, as usual - starting in January. 


    We definitely want to take care of this great community that supports us every day, and also make new fun things when the opportunities present themselves. I know you’re really going to enjoy these new videos, and can’t wait to hear what you think on Monday!

  • EXTRA LIFE 2017 AND THE RETURN OF THE BOB ROSS HOUR

    It's that time of year to make some happy little accidents. It's the return of the Bob Ross Hour to Extra Life! 


    Join me, @Miles@Chris@Blaine@JoshtheFlanagan, @Mariel and other very special faces as we ruin perfectly good canvases. Jon may be there, too. Who cares.


    We'll start around 10pm CST on Saturday and I've included the colors you need below. Mr. Ross painted with oil on canvas, but feel free to use whatever medium you can get your hands on, including MS Paint, condiments, and human blood.


    After we're done, we'll raffle off the paintings done by RT Staff so you can give one to your grandma and say you painted it because you're a bad grandkid. 


    Also, if you don't have the exact colors listed below, don't sweat it. I don't even know the difference between the colors. Midnight Black? Sounds redundant. Prussian Blue? That's not even a country anymore.


    COLORS 

    Titanium White

    Phthalo Blue

    Prussian Blue 

    Midnight Black 

    Dark Sienna

    Van Dyke Brown

    Alizarin Crimson  

    Cadmium Yellow 

    Yellow Ochre

    Bright Red

  • New BD Collection is heeeere!

    Ahoy, friends!


    IT'S HAPPENING! MORE FASHIONZ!
    I'm very excited to introduce the BD Adventure Collection, which just hit the Rooster Teeth Store. This collection has 6 new pieces, including a beanie and 5 shirts (2 of which are unisex cuts). 


    Every item has a positive word or phrase, because you are awesome and you should know that. Why is it called the Adventure collection? Well, A) it sounded cool and B) because self-discovery is a never-ending adventure, and I felt like this collection reflected that. In addition, each piece is so soft and comfortable and perfect to take on any trip. 


    I want to thank Tony and Michele, the designers who helped make these ideas a reality, and the entire store team who deals with my jumbled concepts and thoughts each time we work on a new collection. We wouldn't have these A+ Fashionz without 'em! <3



    I hope you enjoy! 

  • Disney announces a live action Star Wars series!!!

    My God, is this real life? Not only do we get a brand new Star Wars cinematic trilogy spearheaded by Rian Johnson, but we'll finally be getting the long-promised live action Star Wars TV series. 


    Disney CEO Bob Iger confirmed today that they'll be producing a live action Star Wars show for their upcoming Disney Streaming Service, thus ensuring that it's going to be a massive success. Not only will there be original Star Wars content on this service, but also a TV series based on Pixar's Monsters, Inc, Disney Channel's High School Musical and even "an original entry from Marvel," whatever that could mean.


    Iger also said he believes the price point for Disney's Streaming Service will be "substantially below" Netflix's $10.99/month, which means it's a no brainer for just about any fanboy or fangirl out there. Original Disney animation, Marvel and Star Wars content AND access to Disney's massive library? Where do I sign?!?


    It also helps that Star Wars has been kicking so much ass on TV lately. The Clone Wars went a long way to helping me come to peace with my negative thoughts on the Star Wars prequels and Rebels is just straight up great. 


    The live action show was an idea George Lucas was pursuing pretty vigorously before he ended up retiring, going so far as to have whole episode scripts written for the first season. My understanding is a lot of that was mined by Dave Filoni for The Clone Wars and Rebels. It's not a new idea for the franchise, but the time is right to actually execute it and do it with a significant budget and level of production value.


    What's your ideal Star Wars TV show? I'd love it if the folks behind Rebels and The Clone Wars got to try out live action for a bit and I also wouldn't complain if we finally got some Old Republic action going on. Let's finally see the early days visualized! What do you folks think?
