Following the news last month that the all girl Japanese band SCANDAL would be embarking on a world tour next year, it was recently announced that B7klan and Torpedo Productions are bringing them to Paris and London.

SyFy’s new show Defiance will start airing in April 2013. So far it looks to be a fantastic show with a beautiful blend of survival, character profile development and big flashy battles. Who doesn’t like big flashy battles? Set during the aftermath of an interspecies war held on Earth, aliens and mankind have come to co-exist to survive on the war torn planet. With no main body of government, frontier cities such as Defiance are the closest thing... 

Defiance. A new step for MMOs?

Defiance. A new step for MMOs?
When someone discusses Lord of the Rings, you no longer think of just some rather old books. There are games, movies, literature, spin-offs and plenty of cosplay. Tolkein’s books are no longer a title, but an entire universe, much in the same way we see Marvel nowadays, with the various characters in their own games, movies and of course comics. That’s what Defiance is about to become, not just a game, nor a TV series but a fully interactive...

Walking Dead Gameplay Reveal

Walking Dead Gameplay Reveal
A big fear with the Walking Dead game was that it would follow more in the footsteps of the TV series over the original comic. Well what better way to abate those fears than by opening the first gameplay footage video with a few lines from Robert Kirkman the series’ creator and writer. After a long period of anticipation it’s good to see some actual action in this nicely formatted trailer, moving from the comic’s visuals to the actual...

I work in an office and I hate conference calls. It’s something I can find mind numbingly boring, but this is one conference call where you would have found me sat on the table leaning over the phone with a notepad. The recent conference call between AreaNet and NCSoft covered many topics and one that has emerged as complete confirmation by a member of AreaNet is that a console version of Guild Wars 2 is in the works. “We stated multiple...
