This last week of July isn’t overly big with new releases, but it does have a few of note. The Last of Us Remastered releases on the PS4, so those who didn’t have a PS3 can see what everyone was raving about, as Naughty Dog’s version of a post apocalyptic America is well worth your time. Rogue Legacy makes the leap from the PC to Sony’s platforms for those wanting a dungeon crawler fix, and there’s a new LEGO game for the handhelds. On the home video front, Darren Aronofsky’s (Black Swan, The Fountain) biblical epic Noah debuts, as does the Cameron Diaz comedy The Other Woman. Those who remember the delightfully bizarre David Lynch series Twin Peaks can dive in all over again with the release of Twin Peaks: The Entire Mystery...Read More
Yep, the folks at Asylum have gone and done it again. With the crazy success of Sharknado (one of the most watched movies made for SyFy), it was inevitable that a sequel would come along. For your enjoyment, watch the sneak peek below (courtesy of SyFy).
Fin (Ian Ziering) and April (Tara Reid) return from the first film, as this time the shark infested storms threaten the Big Apple. Joining the cast for the shark mayhem in New York City this time around are Vivica A. Fox (Independence Day, Kill Bill) as Skye, and even a Brody family ( a nice nod to Jaws) including Martin Brody (played by Mark McGrath), Ellen Brody (Kari Wuhrer, from Eight Legged Freaks), Mora Brody (Courtney Baxter), and Vaughn Brody (Dante Palminteri). The sequel is directed by Anthony C...Read More
Very, very slim pickings this week. Good week for those who want to catch up on their backlogs, or finally get around to play an earlier title that you missed. Only two games for the week, one for the PS4 and one for the PC. Elsewhere, we have the family film Rio 2 landing on home video, along with the sci-fi flick Under the Skin. In theaters this week we get Cameron Diaz and Jason Segel making a Sex Tape (and then trying to get it back), the planes returning for another family flick from Disney in Planes: Fire & Rescue, and crime gets a free pass again for a night in The Purge: Anarchy. Time now for this week’s list and , need I remind you, release dates are subject to change.

Shantae Risky’s Revenge- PC
Under the Skin
The vampire tale by Guillermo del Toro and Dennis Hogan is set to debut this coming Sunday on FX. Check out the trailer below (trailer courtesy of Movie Spawn).
The Strain follows Dr. Ephraim Goodweather, who heads up a team from the CDC that investigates an airliner that has landed in New York with all of its passengers apparently dead by a mysterious virus. The virus turns out to be a strain of ancient vampirism, and begins to spread throughout the city in an outbreak. Ephraim joins forces with others to combat the threat which could very well wipe out humanity on Earth.
The series stars David Bradley (Walder Frey in Game of Thrones), Anne Betancourt (The Young and the Restless), Nikolai Witschl (King & Maxwell), and Corey Stoll (Non-Stop).Read More
A very thin week this time around. The biggest game for the week is Sniper Elite III, which has already released for PC users and now comes to Sony and Microsoft’s consoles. Time to shoot some bad guys in slow motion and watch cool x-ray visions of your shots. Never got old in the previous game, and this looks to be even better. Elsewhere, Ubisoft’s wonderful fairy tale Child of Light comes to the Vita. The crazy and fun platformer Guacamelee! gets a supercharged edition for the PS4, and iPhone users can enjoy a second Civilization Revolution. The home video front is dominated by TV shows. Legend of Korra: Book Two, Spirits debuts to coincide with the beginning of Book Three on Nickelodeon, and season one of the sci-fi series Helix is out...Read More
A bit more selection to choose from in this last full week of June, highlighted by those robots in disguise. Yes, new Transformers arrive, both on consoles and Nintendo’s handheld in the game Transformers: Rise of the Dark Spark, and on the big screen in another special effects filled extravaganza from Michael Bay, Transformers: Age of Extinction. The new movie features the Dinobots and has Mark Wahlberg stepping in on the human side. Elsewhere this week, Ubisoft releases the puzzle/adventure game Valiant Hearts: The Great War, the classic platformer Another World debuts on Sony’s platforms in a 20th Anniversary Edition, and gardens fight back against the undead in Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare on the PC...Read More
Another very sparse week in terms of new releases. Gaming is especially dry this week, with the biggest release being EA Sports UFC for the PS4 and Xbox One. On the home video front, the second season of Netflix’s House of Cards is out, with Kevin Spacey delving into Washington, D.C. and all of the political shenanigans there. Wes Anderson’s The Grand Budapest Hotel makes its home video debut, as does the critically acclaimed animated film Ernest & Celestine. And everything is awesome as The LEGO Movie can be brought home this week, with yet another catchy tune to get stuck in your heads. On the big screen, comedian Kevin Hart heads up an ensemble cast in the romantic-comedy sequel Think Like A Man Too, and director Clint Eastwood brings the stage hit Jersey Boys to the big screen...Read More
Pickings are a bit slim for this second week of June. We have the World War Two shooter Enemy Front arriving, and couple of PC games (Space Run and Pulstar) and a movie tie-in for How to Train Your Dragon 2, which also hits movie theaters on Friday. Also coming to your local cineplexes this Friday is the action comedy sequel 22 Jump Street, this time sending Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill to college. On the home video front, Neil deGrasse Tyson’s updated version of Carl Sagan’s great science series Cosmos gets a release, along with the thrillers Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit and Non-Stop. The first seasons of the shows Ray Donovan, Resurrection, and True Detective will also be available. On to the list. As always, release dates are subject to change.

Not a lot in terms of quantity coming out this last week of the fifth month of the year, but we do have some very notable and anticipated releases. Watch Dogs drops onto the PC, Sony, and Microsoft platforms this week (it’ll hit Wii U next month), so you can get your hack on in Chicago with Aiden Pearce.
