Nerd Reactor attended New York Comic Con this month and created another of their unique Hulacam videos that features some fantastic cosplays. The Hulacam is a unique camera that is attached to a hula hoop that allows cosplays to hula and give viewers a 360 degree look at their cosplay. Keep your eyes peeled as there are a few big names that snuck their way into this video. Which cosplay stood out the most to you? Did you get to see the Hulacam in person at New York Comic Con this year?  "Team Nerd Reactor heads to New York Comic Con 2013 with their Hulacam.

Fan creates a map of every Pokemon's location in Pokemon X and Y!

Image
Thanks to one extremely dedicated fan on Reddit that goes by the username "Bobdor", Pokémon fans can now have a map that lists every single Pokémon and their location in the new games Pokémon X and Y! The photo is quite impressive and lists a lot of information on it. "If a pokemon has the "horde" symbol next to it, it doesn't mean that it ONLY comes in hordes. It just means that it DOES come in hordes. Also if a pokemon has any "fishing" symbol next to it. I just put the easiest method for capture instead of listing all. For example if you can catch something with a good and super rod, I just put good because you don't NEED the super rod." The map also comes with a detailed Map Key that even tells you how the Pokémon can be caught; standard catch (bushes, walking, ect), special catch (shaking bushes, ect), catchable using Surf, and many other methods.

To get the full size photo head on over to either My Nintendo News or Bobdor's or…

Professor X fires Gambit from the X-Men in this great sketch from the Pete Holmes Show! [video]

Pete Holmes has just released a new sketch that continues his X-Men story! The original sketch saw Professor X firing Wolverine and the newest sketch now has the professor firing Gambit from the iconic team! I have to say that these sketches are cracking me up. I love both Wolverine and Gambit but the professor brings up some character flaws that are definitely worth a laugh. "Gambit gets fired in this new Ex-Men sketch. Check out more great sketches from "The Pete Holmes Show." We premiere on October 28th after "Conan," and we'll be on weeknights at midnight/11 central."

Star Wars officially enters Once Upon A Time In Wonderland! [video]

The shows Once Upon A Time and Once Upon A Time In Wonderland have been doing a good job at bringing in every character and Disney franchise they can think of into their shows even if it is just a small reference. It's clear that they are looking to open up their shows' universe and create more worlds that the characters can hop into. In this week's episode of Once Upon A Time In Wonderland they officially brought in the Star Wars franchise. That's right! Most people probably missed it as it was sneaky and subtle.

I was watching the show today and had to watch the scene twice to make sure I had heard correctly. When I realized I did I quickly recorded the scene and put it onto my YouTube channel. It may be a weird crossover but whether you like it or not it actually makes sense in this universe that they have created.

While talking to Jafar and flipping through a book of evil creatures that could potentially attack Alice, the Red Queen turns a page and says, "Ah …

The official Star Wars YouTube page has been posting the original teaser trailers for the original Star Wars trilogy for fans to enjoy (Star Wars - Episode IV: A New Hope and Star Wars - Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back), and yesterday they posted the teaser for Star Wars - Episode VI:Revenge of the Jedi. You read that correctly. Although the name of the film would later be changed to Return of the Jedi, the teaser still went out with the original title of Revenge of the Jedi. It also had some other things in it that would later get changed like Luke Skywalker's lightsaber and the ghost of Obi-Wan Kenobi.  "Watch the original teaser trailer for Revenge of the Jedi, which appeared in theaters before Star Wars creator George Lucas changed the name of the film to Return of the Jedi.

New trailer for Batman: Arkham Origins focuses on Black Mask! [video]

Warner Bros. Games Montreal released a brand new trailer today for Batman: Arkham Origins. This newest trailer is titled "Personal Mission" and it focuses on the villain Black Mask. I must admit that the more I see of this game the better it looks. I cannot wait for it's release. "This trailer showcases Black Mask, the feared gang leader and powerful mob boss in Gotham, now controlling the city's criminal underworld. Black Mask (AKA Roman Sionis) has but one goal this Christmas Eve night, to kill the Batman. With the aim to further tighten his grip on the city, this ruthless and sadistic crime lord will stop at nothing to destroy the vigilante.

Amazing metal cover to the theme song from Goosebumps! [video]

Viewer beware, you're in for a scare! Check out this amazing metal cover of the theme song from the 1995 Goosebumps show! The show had an awesome theme song with a chilling sound but thanks to YouTuber "metalrr5" we can now listen to the theme as an awesome metal song. The cover is clean and smooth and fans of the Goosbumps books and show will definitely like it.

The show was based off the Goosebumps books written by R.L. Stine which were amazing and the reason that I loved reading as a child. I recently got to meet R.L. Stine in New York City and got several of my original Goosebumps books as well as his new book Red Rain signed. I was so excited!

Check out video of the opening football scene for Batman vs Superman! [video]

I recently reported about a scene being shot for the upcoming "Batman vs Superman" film that would be filmed at the East Los Angeles College football stadium and showed you the two football jerseys for Gotham and Metropolis. Well the scene has been shot and thanks to one lucky fan in attendance we can see some great video from the set! Director Zack Snyder was on hand but the stars of the film were not. During this scene, which will be the opening scene of the film, the Gotham City University football team is playing their rival Metropolis State University. You get a good look at the teams playing some plays and even a small fight breaks out towards the end between players but that's all. The scene seems to be strictly a football scene setting up the connection between the two iconic DC cities but it's still pretty cool to watch. "Day 1 of filming for 2015's "Batman Vs. Superman". The scene takes place at Gotham City University's Stadium facing …
