    What is the appeal of a grim and realistic Superman? I meant in terms of this definition.

    What is the appeal of a grim and realistic Superman?

    I still wouldn't class Man of Steel as gritty or dark, just more naturalistic.

    Full Official TMNT Trailer Is A Triumph Of Incomprehensibility

    So you're going to boycott it even if it's good? Isn't that what we want? OT: It's a bit generic admittedly, but it could have been waaaaaaaaaay worse. I think the turtles themselves (from what little we see of them) look pretty solid.

    10 Marvel Characters Who Should Show Up On Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

    I expect a fair few of these, notably Punisher, Moon Knight and probably Taskmaster, are gonna show up through Marvel's Netflix shenanigans, or at least get a reference of some sort. I think it'll be more fitting.

    J.J. Abrams Yearns For Mystery In The Star Wars Universe

    It can't be worse than 1,2 and 3. It can't be worse than 1,2 and 3. It can't be worse than 1,2 and 3...but that doesn't mean it can't still be bad. I'm excited regardless, I think J.J likes Star Wars enough to not mess it up, and he has another writer to (hopefully) pull him in if he goes a...

    The Big Picture: The Big Letdown

    Quality aside, Man of Steel is an interesting version of Superman in the same way The Dark Knight is an interesting version of Batman. Both retain the classic elements, but both also take liberties in order to mold the characters and worlds for a new audience. Twenty years ago, Man of Steel...

    Lone Ranger Goes Boom! To Tune Of $150 Million Loss

    That's what happens when you make a WESTERN for $250 million. You could of made a decent Lone Ranger film for half, maybe even a third of that money. I can't believe nobody at Disney pointed this out, especially after the failure Cowboys and Aliens. Make a good film on less money, make a...

    Ken Levine on BioShock Infinite's Bro-Tastic Cover Art

    I doubt those people are going to take the time out of their day to review bomb a game that was below their expectations, and even if they did I doubt it would matter. To be honest there's a heck of a lot of snobbery going on here, and it's worrying. Calling the mainstream audience "dumb, drunk...

    Ken Levine on BioShock Infinite's Bro-Tastic Cover Art

    While I'm not a fan of the box-art, what's wrong with wanting more people to play your game? He wants more people to play Bioshock, people who might have otherwise turned it down. Granted, I'm not sure how big an influence box-art has on sales numbers, but isn't it better to risk the integrity...

    Bioshock Infinite: The latest victim of the Stupid-American-Box-Art Virus.

    I don't think it's bad. That's not to say it isn't generic (it is), but it's by no means awful. I just think it pales in comparison to the countless other possible covers they could of used instead. The Bioshock games, Infinite in particular, have some amazing art and character designs. Why...

    Eternal Darkness 2 Demo May Have Scuttled X-Men: Destiny

    Even if the demo was shit, I still want to see it.

    Muslim Complaints Get Modern Warfare 2 Map Pulled

    In Call of Duty you kill hundreds of people, sometimes in the most sadistic ways. But stick a texture in the wrong place! Well NOW we have a problem!
