Shut Up and Rock -- 10/2/13

Oct 02, 2013 -- 8:42am

From here to the eyes and the ears of the 'Verse, that's my motto, or it might be if I start having a motto.

 

  • Is anyone else watching Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. on ABC?  I'm not usually one to keep up with a series in real time, save for a couple of AMC darlings like The Walking Dead or Hell on Wheels, but as a Whedon show (and a direct continuation of The Avengers), it's a blast thus far.  They're two episodes in, and it's on ABC Tuesdays at 7, so give it a go.
     
  • Paramount Pictures and Platinum Dunes have to get a Friday the 13th movie into theaters by 2015, or else they lose the rights to the franchise back to Warner Bros.  Rumor has it they're interested in a found-footage take on the series, and while I'm a little burned on that trend already, I really think it could be fun in a Jason slasher flick, if done properly.
     
  • Elsewhere, Harvey Weinstein wants the Scream film franchise to wrap up with a fifth film, since "everybody lived in the fourth," and they've "milked that cow," in his words.  There is already a Scream TV series in development at MTV, but it's said to be about as faithful to the films as their Teen Wolf series is; it's expected to include the supernatural and none of the films' characters.
     
  • Gaming Update with Coffey's Comics and Games today, and Magic: the Gathering 2014 -- Duels of the Planeswalkers has a new expansion out now that adds new campaign levels, challenges, and five new playable decks to the game.  It's available on iPad, Android tablets, PS3, Xbox 360, and PC/Steam now.
     
  • Also, the cast of characters for Batman: Arkham Origins grows by the day, as both Killer Croc and Barbara Gordon were confirmed to be in the game as of yesterday.  As a prequel, it's likely the game's version of Barbara will still be a teenager and not quite Batgirl (or anywhere near Oracle)-status yet.  It's out Oct. 25th on everything.
     
  • And another quick one:  Microsoft is "unlocking" Xbox Live Gold from October 4th through the 6th this weekend, so if you aren't a Gold subscriber, go play some GTA V online!  Or download Might and Magic: Heroes for free!  Or whatever else!

 

'Til Thursday, thrashers...ROCK!
