Remember when mom would yell at you to not bring your toys to the dinner table? If you were like me, you would whisper to the teenage turtle tucked under the waistband of your parachute pants, “Michelangelo, I’ll never leave you. This pizza is raaaaad.”

Also rad: Sasuke having an Oreo party.

This photo series is pretty much everything that is great about playing with toys. Titled “89mix,” the tumblr account these photos originate from seems to be run by a Japanese person named Yakumi. In the about me section we find this description: “I photograph and remodel some figures, draw some pictures, and play with some SASUKE.”

Yakumi’s photos range from the absurd….

to cute…

to somber and reflective.

But if there is one motif other than Sasuke to be found in Yakumi’s work it is probably her predilection to including food.

Lots and lots of food.

So don’t be afraid to open some of those boxes and get creative! Now here’s some Sasuke in a microwave.

The 2014 San Diego Comic-Con is just a week away, and all the nerds and geeks at heart are getting ready to come and play, not excluding myself, of course. After months of anticipation, of swimming in rumors of what’s going to be there, the official program is finally out! And of course, I’ve unregrettably spent a whole weekend combing through it to find all the good stuff.

Keep Calm and Science!

I don’t know about you guys, but I think science is the bee’s knees. And the fact that it’s the 45th Anniversary of the moon landing and NASA has a panel makes me kind of giddy. On Thursday, July 24 at 3:00 PM, Seth Green’s hosting NASA’s Next Giant Leap with astronauts’ Buzz Aldrin, Mike Fincke, and other scientists, to talk about NASA’s future plans. I’m hoping, of course, that they’ll talk about The Europa Clipper. If you love Astronomy and you haven’t heard of it, shame on you. NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) is currently studying a mission to send a spacecraft in orbit around Jupiter to investigate one of its icy moons, Europa, for the possibility of life! The truth is out there, my friends!

Fandoms Unite!

Ah, yes. I may not be a Destiel shipper (and if you are, that’s cool too) but I’m a big fan of the television show Supernatural. I’m already anticipating the long line at Hall H on Sunday, July 27 at 10:00 AM to see their panel Supernatural Special Video Presentation and Q&A. I mean, even if you don’t like the show, you’ll appreciate the great chemistry and the wonderful bromance amongst the cast: Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles, Misha Collins, and Mark A. Sheppard. These guys are goofy and great to watch together. I would be lying if I said I didn’t squeal like a 14-year old girl when I was scrolling through all the events.

It’s that time of year again! San Diego Comic Con is returning for its 45th year. This year will be a particularly special one because it’ll also be the 75th anniversary of Batman’s first comic book appearance. As exciting as that is, what I’m most excited about are the video games that will be presented.


First on my list is Assassin’s Creed. Ubisoft has gotten a lot of backlash for the lack of female lead assassins since the beginning of the series. Perhaps the “Beyond Clichés” panel about the creation of female characters will help them out. Nevertheless, the fifth installation of the Assassin’s Creed series definitely has my eye for this year’s con. Ubisoft has done an excellent job in staying true to historical facts and events within the series and Unity, I expect, should be no different. My hope is that Ubisoft will show actual gameplay in the panel rather just a cinematic that enhances the visual graphics and maybe have a demo available in the games section at the convention center. It would also be interesting to learn how the co-op will work, whether it will be in game or an extra, like in AC4. The player customization is also a new feature that Ubisoft has implemented and I’d like to see how flexible the customization will be. That being said, there will also be an Assassin’s Creed experience obstacle course at the con which should be very exciting (It even has a 25-foot Leap of Faith!). I’ll definitely be lining up for that.

 

Ever since Far Cry 3, the Far Cry series has definitely caught my attention especially with its DLC of Blood Dragon that experimented with a totally new story and 1980s gaming art style that was just plain fun to play. Now with the next installation of Far Cry 4, we experience a new story with what seems to be looking like similar gameplay. Again, the hope is that Ubisoft will either release some in game footage or a game demo for participants to try out. Maybe even both? There is also an expected DLC already for the new addition to the series and it’s expected that the panel will reveal some more information about it. I don’t expect some gameplay footage or demo for it but if there is, then that would be a very nice gesture from Ubisoft. On the Comic Con’s description for the Far Cry 4 panel, there is mention of a panelist winner who will be the first to play a video game on Mount Everest. It’s definitely as it sounds but it’ll be interesting how it will work seeing as there will be lots of training to just be at such a high altitude. Although Far Cry is not at the top of my list, it’s something I’d definitely keep an eye out for.

                               

After the very successful launch of the first Dead Island, Deep Silver has expanded its zombie infested world creating a sequel (Dead Island 2) as well as a third off-game, Escape Dead Island. Deep Silver promised a whole new storyline and gameplay for each of these that will be unlike the original. Since the change of developers from Techland to Yager, it will be interesting to see how big of a change the gameplay and style will be. Games switching developers have seen its fair share of ups and downs. One of the big things I’ll be looking out for is how similar the game style will be compared to the first Dead Island. One of the great things about Batman: Arkham Origins was I didn’t have to relearn a whole new fighting system, instead I could just pick up the game and continue playing as if it really was a part of the Batman: Arkham series. Hopefully, Dead Island 2 will be similar. As for Escape Dead Island, it’s been said it will be a completely different game style. From descriptions and trailers, it feels like a prequel to the original Dead Island and instead of just trying to survive you’re solving the mystery of Dead Island as well. The artwork in Escape Dead Island looks very similar to the style of Telltale games. It will be interesting to see how the audience will react to the difference in artwork, but it looks amazing. I’ll be interested in seeing how the Dead Island franchise continues on and whether or not it will continue to remain as successful, if not more, than the first one.
