The Candy Crush Movie

Candy-crush-saga-portada

Lots of people play Candy Crush.  Why?  I dunno.  I mean, I play, but I couldn’t tell you why.  Compelling storyline?  Nope.  Interesting characters?  Nope.  People like spending a ton of money on a glorified version of Bejeweled?  Apparently.

But say, the company that makes the game was recently acquired by Activision, which is trying to make movies off their products.  Someone after the cut speculated what a Candy Crush movie would look like.

Podcast Reaction: The No Watson’s Club Edition

nohomers On this week’s podcast we were without the melodic tones of one William DB Watson as he served his one podcast suspension for last weeks tirade that will be henceforth known as “The Incident”.  However, the remaining geeks fell into the age old trap of talking about Watson continuously throughout.

Play The Latest Fallout Game Right Now!

fallout-shelter

Ok, it’s not Fallout 4, and you’re going to need an iOS device (Android “coming soon”) but Bethesda has released a mobile game called Fallout Shelter.  It looks like a radioactive version of Sim City and similar games.  You are the Overseer and you create your own vault.  You are responsible for the safety of the vault and the happiness of its inhabitants.

It has more of a cartoony Vault Boy look than hardcore Fallout, but it definitely looks and feels like a Fallout game.  The game is free and there are no “pay wall timers”.  You can also play without an internet connection.  If you’re not already running off to download, view the E3 gameplay video announcement (and maybe some bonus features about the Fallout 4 release if you are really good) after the break.

A Spoiler Filled Walk On The Great Web Of Spider-Verse, Part One

Spider-Verse_DellOtto_Banner

When the comic book scholars of the future look back on Spider-Verse they may view the crossover as a disappointment. I can see that. There really isn’t much meat on the bone here. Most issues are generally the same:

  • introduce or revisit a Spider-Man from an alternate dimension
  • Inheritors attack
  • multiversal Spider-Men show up to help
  • some live, some die, the survivors escape
  • Inheritors move onto the next dimension in search of another meal

Pretty standard and repetitive stuff. But to take this view, is to miss the whole fun of Spider-Verse. The interaction of all these Spiders new and old amongst themselves and the Inheritors. Checking in on old favorites. Seeing the fate of Spider-Men you grew up watching on TV. I’m sure we’ll have Spider-Man multiverse crossovers again in the future (*cough*Secret Wars*cough*) but likely never to this degree again.
