It may be the end of the world tomorrow, but what's happening in the rest of the universe? Cara Santa Maria from the Huffington Post sits down with Michael Kosta to run down the latest developments in science and space exploration. What's on her checklist? The current location of the Voyager 1, the super string theory and being the smartest person that Michael Kosta has ever interacted with.
Janina Gavankar from True Blood and The League makes one final appearance on Attack of the Show where she talks to Michael Kosta about what rabid fans can expect in the next season (more nudity? Yay!), how distracting the audience is and life as a geek.
Resident Evil: Retribution, the 5th installment of the Resident Evil film franchise, comes to DVD, Blu-ray, and Blu-ray 3D tomorrow, Friday 12/21, and we have an exclusive behind the scenes clip to whet your undead appetite! In the clip, titled "A Great Visual Journey", we get a behind the scenes glimpse into the design and build of the world of Resident Evil: Retribution.
It's pretty cool clip, seriously lacking in Milla Jovovich and those little outfits she always pours herself into for these movies, but pretty cool nonetheless.
Check it out:
Did you see Resident Evil: Retribution? What'd you think? I actually haven't seen it yet and I need something to watch this weekend.
If the Sony Xperia TL is good enough for James Bond, then it should be good enough for us! Matt Mira and Michael Kosta review the Android smartphone with 13 megapixel HD camera, 4.6-inch 720p display and dual-core processor for $30 with a contract.

Populous will live on; Peter Molyneux's Project GODUS is officially a successfully funded Kickstarter project. The game currently has £478,916 pledged, surpassing the £450,000 goal, with 26 hours to go at the time of this writing. The total will likely be even higher by the time this news publishes, so check out the source for the most up-to-date figures.
With the funding goal now achieved, a number of stretch goals have been added. The first two are already nailed down at the time of this writing, and the third -- which would bring in the BAFTA award winning writer James Leach to write the story -- is definitely in reach. The top-level stretch goal, at £550,000, would add Linux and Ouya versions to the list of supported platforms (currently PC/Mac, iOS, Android).
The Kickstarter page lists a September 2013 release as the target, though the feature additions that stretch goals bring about have a tendency to delay things. Let's also not forget that this is a Peter Molyneux production. The brilliant gamesmith is full of big ideas, but can he turn those ideas into a reality in a timely fashion? We'll have to wait and see.
Settle down because Michael Kosta and Candace Bailey are here with another Around The Net with a baby-snatching bird (wait, that's fake?), a scary dog, another huge fan of trains, fruit ninjas and a weightlifter.
Square Enix continues to milk the Final Fantasy 13 setting for all it is worth, with the recently confirmed Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy 13 now on display in a new trailer. The minute-and-a-half long clip is a mixture of CG and gameplay and hey, whaddya know-- it looks like Final Fantasy!
According to Eurogamer, the trailer surfaced early today before being pulled, only to surface once again a short time later. Let's all take a moment to thank the Internet for being the Internet. The gameplay shows off a little bit of combat and town exploration as well as... wait. Is that some light platforming?
Looks neat. And very Final Fantasy. We'll likely be hearing more soon, as Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy 13 launches in 2013.
Hey, look at that: rumors of a Borderlands 2 DLC pack titled Sir Hammerlock's Big Game Hunt are true. 2K Games and Gearbox Software confirmed the news this morning in a media blast and 2K blog post, confirming that the third DLC pack for September 2012's fan-favorite looter shooter will be coming on January 15, 2013.
Like the previous two DLC releases, Hammerlock will cost $9.99 (800 MS Points) on PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC platforms. Players will be sent off to explore the Pandoran continent of Aegrus on a hunting trip. A new villain and self-proclaimed Handsome Jack superfan presents himself shortly after you arrive and it's not long before you're taking on an assortment of new baddies in an effort to stop him.
Vinnie Jones from Lock, Stock & Two Smoking Barrels and X-Men: The Last Stand was on Attack of the Show last night for his new film, Company of Heroes. He discuss the film's World War II setting with Michael Kosta, as well as his football career. (Not American football. The real football.)

The Albert Hughes-directed web series, The 7 Wonders of Crysis 3, continues today with its second episode, The Hunt. The focus in this gameplay clip is primarily on the 2013 game's bow and arrow weapon, used here to hunt a pack of Ceph aliens.
There's a little light machine gun action and a large set of explosions as well, just to ensure that you don't start to think that Crysis 3 doesn't also bring in some heavy firepower. As the title suggests, however, this second episode is all about the hunt. Also, it's about showing off more of those slick, slick graphics.
It's one thing to get a tour of the famous Jack Daniels distillery but what about a nice sample of their whiskey? Weston Scott gets to try some of their old fashioned Tennessee sour mash whiskey. No fair!

FUSE, Insomniac Games' upcoming 4 player co-op game, has a new trailer "The Dalton Rules" which lays out the 3 rules Dalton, a snarky, energy shield equipped, Overstrike agent lives by. It looks like someone breaks one (or more) of Dalton's rules in this trailer so I can't imagine he's very happy about that.
Check out the latest FUSE trailer and see if you've broken any of Dalton's rules today:
What 3 rules do you live by? Mine include always sitting with my back against the wall and never purchasing off-brand toilet paper.
