Saying goodbye to 2013 and looking forward to 2014

biWARNING: THIS ARTICLE WILL CONTAIN SOME SPOILERS. PROCEED WITH CAUTION IF YOU ARE NOT CAUGHT UP ON GAMES, MOVIES, AND TV SHOWS FOR THE PAST YEAR.

Just a few more hours left in the old year (at least where I live) and then 2013 will be in the books. It’s been a fairly good year for all types of entertainment media, from gaming to movies to television to comic books. Gaming has seen the birth of a new generation of consoles with the PS4 and Xbox One (though Nintendo got the jump on both Sony and Microsoft by releasing the Wii U in 2012), while the current (now previous?) gen is still going strong. A lot of quality games were released over the past twelve months, giving gamers plenty of choices when it came to picking the personal GOTY...

Confessions of Mobile Suit

When I bought my first Gunpla, I think it wasn’t because I had any interest with any of the Mobile Suit Gundam series. It was more because my brother had it. I think my first was SD Shenlong of Mobile Suit Gundam Wing. Then I abandoned them until the Mobile Suit Gundam Seed series. Since then I’ve tried to follow the universe of Gundam. Unfortunately, the series is going down, and because of that I haven’t watched any of them for the time being.

Epic Battle? I guess not…. It isn’t even close

The first season is all about two races: Natural(Human), who reside on Earth and Coordinator, the enhanced version of human, who live in  colonies in orbit on the brink of war...

Superman Unchained is just what you want a Superman book to be. It’s filled with plenty of action and humor, and gives a new look to some familiar characters.

Superman: 75 years of an American icon

Superman wikipediaSuperman. The very name is known worldwide, bringing with it the image of the man in blue with a billowing red cape, a large “S” prominent on his chest. He fights for truth, justice, and the American way, although in recent years his role has been expanded to include of mankind on the planet Earth. Born on the planet Krypton as Kal-El, he was sent to Earth by his father, Jor-El, when his homeworld’s red sun went supernova.

Superman Week Begins Sunday, June 9th!

After Batman, Superman is the best comic book hero of all-time, and certainly the most heroic. His film series is once again being rebooted this coming Frida with the release of Man of Steel (should be seen in 3D). To celebrate this larger-than-life hero who has entertained us for decades with his wholesome alien, robber, and drug-dealer ass-whipping, tjsmoke63 and I (and maybe david) will be reviewing an assortment of Superman media, ranging from films to cartoons to comic books, every day for the next week; as well the sure-to-be Summer blockbuster, Man of Steel. This event will begin Sunday, June 9th, right here at Leet Gamers Asia. Stay tuned!

Superman!

In other news, expect a The Last of Us review from me in the coming weeks, as well as an opinion piece on filler in video games, and various p...

Cartoon Network getting their act together

Cartoon Network, the greatest animation channel of all-time, has had a sorted past whenever it came to DVD. They, for whatever reason, though that people wanted to keep buying random compilations of their hit masterpieces. I mean, they did try releasing complete seasons of Ed, Edd n Eddy, but they fucked about with it, and eventually stopped halfway through releasing the whole show.

I think one reason for this could be that they are cheap bastards, but the nice answer would be that their programming is for kids. Regardless of how much we all love Courage the Cowardly Dog and Codename: Kids Next Door, those shows were put on a kids channel, for kids; and they are their top priority….. which means that they don’t have to do much...
