    Missed out on ‘P.T.’? Here’s your chance to download it!

    One of the defining news stories of the gaming world this year has been the ugly public break-up between Konami and their longtime creative force and revenue generator, Hideo Kojima.

    ‘Pacific Rim: Tales from the Drift’ #1 is a memory best left forgotten

    While there are some potentially interesting characters and nice use of color in the comic, Pacific Rim: Tales from the Drift #1 feels like a whole lot of nothing. It’s visually uninteresting and doesn’t seem to want to take any risks storywise with its core concept. It’s not even empty calories.

Del Toro is always cooking something up, and his name is frequently being thrown around for various films that never quite materialize: he’s been working on-again/off-again on a Haunted Mansion film; then there’s the DC Comics adaptation Justice League Dark. Pacific Rim 2 keeps jumping back and forth between being in development and being put on hold. The filmmaker was even going to direct the first of The Hobbit films before things changed, and we ended up with a bloated trilogy filled with nonsense. But the holy grail of unmade Guillermo del Toro films is his adaptation of H.P. Lovecraft’s At the Mountains of Madness. More

    The Strain, Ep. 2.04, “The Silver Angel”

    The cold opening of episode four connects itself to The Strain in three different ways. The relevancy of the first two to the series are easily discernible.
