Not a lot of big releases for this final week of July, but some of note. The adventure game remake King’s Quest kicks things off with its first chapter “A Knight to Remember”. “Dark Room”, the penultimate chapter for Life is Strange, launches this week, as does the remastered version of Legend of Kay and the RPG Lost Dimension. On the home video front we get an alternate universe in the DC animated movie Justice League: Gods and Monsters, and Big Bang Theory’s Jim Parsons plays an alien who befriends a young girl in the family friendly flick Home. On the big screen, the Griswolds hit the road again in a remake of the Chevy Chase classic comedy Vacation, and Tom Cruise once again performs mind boggling stunts as the IMF tackles a shadowy organization in Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation...Read More
Not a lot of major releases this week, but there are some of note. Batgirl becomes playable for those who opted out of Arkham Knight’s season pass, and episode 5 of Telltale Games Game of Thrones releases this week. Two previous digital releases, Wolfenstein: The Old Blood and Zombie Army Trilogy, become available on retail disc, and Journey makes the leap onto the PS4. No real major titles on home video this week, though there are a couple of anime series- Soul Eater Not and Blazblue: Alter Memory. Hitting theaters this week is the Adam Sandler sci-fi comedy Pixels, the horror thriller The Vatican Tapes, and the comedy drama Paper Towns. Time to go off to the list and, as always, release dates are subject to change.

Heroes, which ran on NBC from 2006- 2010, was a mostly solid effort from creator Tim Kring as a series that explored a group of people who realize that they have extraordinary abilities. The series starred Hayden Panettiere, Jack Coleman, Milo Ventimiglia, Masi Oka, Greg Grunberg, Sendhil Ramamurthy , and Zachary Quinto. The first two seasons were especially good, as they focused on the serial killing spree of Sylar (Quinto). Things began to get a bit muddled after that, though the series did wrap things up fairly nicely in its fourth season. Now the show is being revisited with a new series called Heroes Reborn. Take a look at the trailer below.
Tim Kring again returns as the showrunner along with returning cast members Coleman, Oka, and Grunberg...Read More
This week, size matters, at least for a couple of releases. Godzilla the Game stomps onto PS3 and PS4 this week, where causing plenty of destruction gains you energy to grow even larger and take on a host of other giant beasties. There’s no shortage of massive enemies in God of War III Remastered which brings the vengeful Kratos to the PS4. At the other end of the spectrum we get Ant-Man, the next movie in the Marvel cinematic universe. Expect plenty of action, one liners, and a post credits scene. Elsewhere we have Trials Fusion: Awesome Level Max heading to the PS4, PC, and Xbox One, and golfers can get their game on in Rory McIlroy PGA Tour...Read More
Bruce Campbell is back as the chainsaw wielding dispatcher of the undead in a Starz series titled Ash vs. Evil Dead. Check out the trailer from San Diego Comic-Con below.
The series will consist of 10 half hour episodes, and will also star Lucy Lawless (Xena, Battlestar Galactica). The series debuts on Starz this Halloween, October 31.Read More
This week those lovable Minions from Despicable Me get their very own film and take over local cineplexes along with the found footage horror movie The Gallows and the sci-fi thriller Self/less. Game wise it’s slim pickings, this being July, not a month known for any real major releases. Perhaps generating the most interest is Rocket League, a physics based football game (soccer for our American readers) with cars from developer Psyonix. The third season of the Netflix series House of Cards comes to DVD and Blu-ray this week along with the drama Woman in Gold and the different take on the zombie genre Maggie. Off we go to this week’s list and, as always, release dates are subject to change.

This second full week of June is all about the dinos, as Jurassic World stomps into theaters on Friday and bringing to gamers across a host of platforms a new LEGO movie tie-in. And if dinosaurs aren’t your thing (and why wouldn’t they be?), maybe dragons and other fantasy based beasties are, and if so you could get your fix as Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited comes to the PS4 and Xbox One. On the home video front the action packed comic book movie Kingsman: The Secret Service arrives on Blu-ray and DVD, along with the sci-fi thriller Project Almanac and the comedy The Duff. So, now time to head off to this week’s list and remember, as always, release dates are subject to change.

Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited- PS4, PC, Macintosh, Xbox One
The first week of June seems to be a calm one as far as major game releases go, with perhaps the biggest release going to Blizzard Entertainment and their new battle arena game Heroes of the Storm. The indie game The Swapper debuts on the Xbox One, and the PS4 and PC get the non-combat MMO Wander, a game where you can play several beasts and even a sentient tree. On the home video front we get the sci-fi spectacle Jupiter Ascending from the Wachowskis, the new Spongebob movie, the caper flick Focus, and the sports drama McFarland, USA. Theaters get a Wednesday release this week with the big screen adaptation of the HBO comedy series Entourage, with the comedy action movie Spy, the drama Love & Mercy, and the horror prequel Insidious: Chapter 3 hitting local cineplexes on Friday...Read More
