Colonel Dillon will both be in Mortal Kombat X as DLC in June. Carl
Weathers even approved his likeness for the game. This is
seriously awesome. The only thing that could be better is if they were able to
get Arnold's Dutch into the game who could say, "I'm here! Kill me!" during a
fight. That's not all, though, because
Spawn might end up in Mortal Kombat X. Apparently he was originally
considered to be a guest character in Injustice or Injustice 2, but there is
only a limited amount of time he can be used so MKX seems likely.
NIS confirmed that Danganronpa Another Episode: Ultra Despair Girls
will be heading to the U.S. this Fall. This is a spin-off and is quite
different than the normal games. This looks more like dark silliness than
ultimate despair, but I'll definitely be playing it regardless.
A pre-release arcade video shows off Tekken 7's boss,
Kazumi Mishima. The Mishima family matriarch turns into a flame-winged
demon angel with a white tiger she can bring into the battle.
gold Mario Amiibo will be a Wal-Mart exclusive. When, or if it's bundled
with something is not known yet. Now where will that silver Mario end up?
The international trailer for Mad Max: Fury Road is very similar to the first
trailer, but there are a few brief new scenes snippets in there. This movie
can't come out soon enough.
Zak Snyder showed off the first pic of
Jason Momoa as Aquaman in Batman v Superman. I prefer Aquaman with a beard, so it's good to see
him with it in the pic. The ink and armor pieces look fine, too.

The trailer for Persona 5 went live and is showing what looks like a
different kind of Persona. Action and stealth elements, characters who might
change into their Personas, and most importantly, a cat character. A cat! This
is an exciting time for
Have a gander at some sweet
Xenoblade Chronicles X concept art. Also, check out the presentation for
the game showing the vast world, badass transforming mechs, and gameplay. I am
loving what I see in this. Xenoblade Chronicles X is looking like a
very good reason to own a Wii U.
There are two
Mortal Kombat X Kollector's Editions. The wide release one has a stylized
Scorpion statue made by Coarse and includes an in-game gold Scorpion skin inspired
by the statue. The Amazon exclusive import Kollector's Edition has a different
Scorpion statue, a Steelpack case (I'm guessing it's a Metalpak), a steel
card, a comic, and the gold Scorpion skin. I digging the different look of the
Coarse statue, but the other one looks cool, too.
The Super Mario Amiibo will receive two special versions:
a gold Mario and a silver Mario. Nintendo hasn't revealed how or when
these will become available. I like the silver Mario because it looks like
Metal Mario, so it has some game tie-in value.
The retro style racing game
Drift Stage will be heading to PlayStation 4 and Vita. Nice.
Here's an interesting video on the
History of LJN. I was familiar with their videogames, but didn't realize
they had made so many toys, especially the dangerously realistic squirt guns.
Netflix is developing a
live-action Legend of Zelda series. They describe it as Game of Thrones
for a family audience. No. That kind of description doesn't work and is
essentially an oxymoron. It won't have the death, sex, nudity, and twisted
relationships that make up Game of Thrones, so instead what it will be is a
medieval story for a family audience. Zelda is going to be a completely
different kind of show.
The live-action series
better look as good as this. (See
third G.I. Joe movie might have the crimson twins Tomax and Xamot, which
seems like a natural progressions for adding big characters that have yet to
make the leap to live-action. However, the movie also might have Matt Trakker
from M.A.S.K. While Matt Trakker got a G.I. Joe action figure in the 25th
Anniversary line, it would be a little see weird to have him in the movie when there are
still other G.I. Joe characters that haven't been in a movie yet. Although, this could
lead to a stand-alone M.A.S.K. movie, which would be cool.
