Salutations, Wednesday warriors. The comics are in, pull-lists are being filled and readers everywhere are gearing up for even more crossovers. This week, the Avengers and company push past the battle of the corridor and into the second chapter of Infinity, DC drops more than a few .1′s in an apparent move to teach us fractions, and the X-Men jump into the Battle of the Atom. Good times… good times indeed.
September is here, and while many may claim the month is thirty days long, we all know that this September really only has one day – September 17th! If this date doesn’t immediately send chills down your spine, then maybe it’s because you’re too busy raiding hellish dungeons for shiny-but-ultimately useless loot, either way, this is shaping up to be a great month for gamers of all shapes and sizes.
Christians have their Sundays… but we have our Wednesdays! Yes, it’s nearly that time again, and we’re up for another dose of Marvel and DC flexing their circulation muscle while lesser known but totally awesome books go unnoticed. Yep… pretty much like every week. Big Corporate books or indie-gold, whatever your preferred-preferable may be, this list has something for everyone. Check it out.
Wednesday has arrived, and with it comes another cheerful reminder that there are more comics out there most of us can ever hope to afford! Still, that won’t stop us from grabbing as many as we can, will it? This week sees the Infinity tie-ins begin to emerge from their deep, dark crossover-dungeon, we get more Superman Unchained variants than we can shake several sticks at, and we get what may just be the Hobgoblin’s final hours.
Welcome to the first post in our new ‘Comics’ section. First up, a juicy, robust, and (hopefully) complete list of all the books you can expect to find at your local comic shop on Wednesday, August 7, 2013. We’ll be posting these as far in advance as possible, so be sure to check in if you’re wondering when that particular book is shipping.
August is here, and along with it comes a panoply of gaming goodness. This month’s list includes a little something for everyone. Lost Planet takes yet another stab at third-person glory, Saints Row IV brings us more goofiness than ever, and a new cash cow join’s the farm with Disney’s Infinity. Of course, if none of these really do the trick, you can always go back to arguing over next-gen consoles!
In case you missed it, Ubisoft made the official Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag announcement earlier today. Naturally, a fresh batch of screenshots have made their way online. The new entry in the series takes us to the Caribbean during the 18th Century, and puts us in the shoes of the swashbuckling grandfather of ACIII’s protagonist, Connor. The Best part? It looks really pretty!
For PlayStation 3 users, particularly the Skyrim playing kind, the last month has been a much needed opportunity to play catch up. Three weeks meant three expansions, each with the potential to be more epic than their delays! With the release of Dawnguard, publisher Bethesda Softworks has finally brought balance to the DLC-Force, but is the actual content any good?
Square-Enix, Eidos Montreal, and their cleverly situated hashtag have begun the final push towards Tomb Raider release day. A new trailer has landed and it attempts to elicit an emotional response to Lara and her, shall we say, transformative experience. Also, I think they want you to Tweet… Is there a survivor in you?
