Wolverine vs Predator - Super Power Beat Down! [video]

What happens when you put two of the universe's best trackers in a Columbian jungle and let them battle it out? Find out as Wolverine takes on the Predator in the newest episode of Super Power Beat Down.

This is by far one of the best episodes this series has had. The effects were incredible and I love the costuming look on both characters. Extremely well done all around. This episode had my attention from start to finish and I think other fans out there will love it as well. The final result of the battle was spot on.

Let me know if you liked the video and if you agree with the outcome. Also, who would you want to see battle it out in a future episode?

Hilarious new Doctor Who video shows us the show imagined as a vintage Japanese anime!

Doctor Who fans can never get enough of the show so here is an amazingly funny video created by Michael Johnson to get you through the day! The video shows us what Doctor Who would be like if it were a vintage Japanese anime and features The Doctor (of course), Amy Pond, and Rory Williams. Watch as the trio run into some of the Doctor's most iconic villains and fight their way free!

I'd definitely watch this anime. I would be laughing so hard throughout the entire thing.




Side note - Matt Mira's cameo at the end was brilliant.

North American box art for The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD!

Image
Nintendo has just unveiled the new box art for The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD that will be on the Wii U console. They used the image I had expected them to but it is still really cool to see the final product on the box. I really like that Link is in full color while the rest was given a gold hue. I was a huge fan of The Wind Waker when it came out in 2003 so I am excited to replay it on the Wii U with all updated graphics and gameplay!

What do you think of this box art?

The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD will be released for the Wii U this October!

X-Men Days of Future Past parody ending! [video]

Check out this funny parody ending for X-Men: Days of Future Past that has Wolverine raising one very good question to Professor Xavier; "Why can't we get a little credit after a fight ... like the Avengers."   "In this secret marvel movie ending to X-Men: Days of Future Past, The X-Men have conquered the Sentinels and prepare to flee from authorities that hate and fear them...that is until Wolverine decides he's had enough of not being famous, like the Avengers. It's completely unfair." Do you agree with Wolverine that the X-Men should get a little more credit for all the hard fought battles that they go through?

A hilarious look at Peter Capaldi as the Doctor on Doctor Who! [video]

With the announcement that actor Peter Capaldi will become the Twelfth Doctor on the British sci-fi show Doctor Who, fans have been wondering what his Doctor will be like. Well, even though we'll have to wait till December to see Capaldi enter the show fans can get a laugh at what his Doctor could be like right now thanks to two hilarious videos.

Peter Nottage created this first video by splicing together footage from Doctor Who and footage of the character Malcolm Tucker from In The Loop. Get ready for the most ..."expressive" Doctor to hit the airwaves! [NSFW - Strong Language]



This second video is just as funny but is safe to watch anywhere as the cursing is bleeped out. Watch as the Doctor and Clara catch a Dalek off guard.

Forging the Master Sword from The Legend of Zelda! [video]

This week master swordsmmith and propmaster Tony Swatton creates my favorite video game weapon of all time; the Master Sword from The Legend of Zelda. I always have a fun time watching him forge these iconic geek weapons but this time I sat watching with the hugest grin on my face and loved seeing every little detail be done. The end result was truly stunning and I absolutely loved that they smashed clay pots (as well as potion bottles, glass hearts, and bamboo) at the end to test it out. It shows that they did their research and knew what Link cuts through in the games. Watch as Swatton forges the classic sword known to gamers everywhere.

Sleeping Beauty art "Dragon's Gate" features the terrifying dragon Maleficent!

Image
Artist Guy Vasilovich has drawn up a beautiful piece of art that  features the dragon form of Maleficent and Prince Phillip from Sleeping Beauty. He has named the piece "Dragon's Gate" and the result is truly magnificent. The coloring is gorgeous and the look of Maleficent with the larger wings in terrifyingly awesome. Here's what Vasilovivh had to say about the piece:  "As an ardent fan of Disney’s Sleeping Beauty, particularly the dragon sequence, I was drawn to the design concept of the small wings in scale to the dragon.  That characteristic rendered Maleficent flightless even with all of her magic. Asking myself, “What if…?”,  prompted me to to explore the battle from an aerodynamic attack by the dragon, thus the larger wings. I purposely omitted the three fairy godmothers to help give the scene an “impossible situation” look and feel."  *Click the image to enlarge it.
