Star Trek Game Beams Up In April 2013

The upcoming Star Trek game from Namco Bandai is now officially set by the publisher and partner Paramount Pictures for release on April 23, 2013. The game's story serves as a bridge between the events of the 2009 blockbuster Star Trek and its 2013 follow-up, Star Trek Into Darkness.

The release announcement also reveals a pre-order bonus in the form of the "Elite Office Pack," offering "exclusive items and unique uniforms" for Kirk and Spock, the two stars of this co-op-enabled game. The pre-order bonus comes with five separate costume packs that let you outfit Kirk and Spock in a variety of themed duds.

The hunt for Osama bin Laden may be over, but how did the entire investigation come together? Zero Dark Thirty explores the decade long operation, and Tiffany Smith from Attack of the Show spoke with the cast to discuss what the film is actually about, the unsurprising ending and more.

South Park: The Stick of Truth

In an unfortunate though not entirely unexpected move, THQ announced yesterday that it had filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy. The company has been the victim of numerous financial hardships over the past 12 months and the bankruptcy filing positions it for rehabilitation. Investment group Clearlake Capital will acquire the business and most of its assets for $60 million.

THQ president Jason Rubin is projecting an upbeat attitude about the new development, describing it in a statement as "a new start for our company." Indeed, chapter 11 bankruptcy is meant to be a corrective measure. We'll have to wait and see how things go for THQ, but the forecast isn't quite as gloomy as the word "bankrupt" might suggest.

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:

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.

Iron Man 3: Tony Stark Takes Beating In New Photo

Marvel has unveiled a new photo from the upcoming Iron Man 3, although from Tony Stark's point of view, it hardly captures a Kodak moment.

We don't know who gave Iron Man this serious beat-down, but whoever it was had to be pretty powerful. After being exposed to the first trailer and seeing some of the stills, it's hardly a secret that the Armored Avenger is in for his toughest test yet.

Not only has his greatest enemy in The Mandarin (Ben Kingsley) finally surfaced, but a techno-virus making his armor collection go haywire has been unleashed. On top of that, it appears that goons like Coldblood (James Badge Dale) have Tony set in their crosshairs.

Oh, but don't get the impression that this film is going The Dark Knight Rises route, sending Tony off to hiding armed with a cane and a wealth of self-pity. While that techno-virus (Extremis) may cause some weird stuff, which include his armors creeping over Pepper Potts at night, those kinks should be worked out and Iron Man will receive some serious upgrades to fight his new enemies. (I guess Pepper will just have to deal with the nightly gropes from the armors.)

Iron Man 3 directed by Shane Black looks for a body shop that handles Mark VIII armors before hitting theaters on May 3, 2013.

S.H.I.E.L.D. TV Show Casts Some Nashville

Marvel's upcoming S.H.I.E.L.D. TV series has added the final regular agent for its spinoff in singer/actress, Chloe Bennet.

The 21 year-old half-Asian attraction made a name for herself in Beijing, China where, billed as "Chloe Wang," she became a bilingual pop star. However, as with most exquisite ingenues, the acting bug eventually bit and she relocated back to the states where she currently appears on ABC's Nashville. (Which stars Hayden Panettiere, whose name on Heroes was Claire Bennet. Coincidence? -- Probably.)

Bennet/Wang will play the role of the energetic Agent Skye. The Hollywood Reporter describes the character as:

"A confident woman who is slightly obsessed with superhero culture and the shadow organizations that exist within it. She's edgy and can out-talk anyone with her unflappable nature."

Essentially, she will be the show's gorgeously geeky beauty with enough of an edge to send fanboys into an amorous haze with the gratuitous use of pop-culture references and big-eyed close-up shots. You can't go wrong with that, I guess.

Bennet joins a cast headed by Clark Gregg's returning Agent Phil Coulson consisting of Ming-Na Wen, Elizabeth Henstridge, Iain De Caestecker, and last month's addition of Brett Dalton. Shooting is said to commence in January.



Battlefield 3's End Game DLC Details Emerge

The Aftermath DLC is now live and available on all platforms for Battlefield 3 players, which means that the fifth and final pack -- End Game -- is going to be here soon as well. Electronic Arts and DICE share the first official details in a newly updated product page on Battlefield.com.

End Game adds four new multiplayer maps "designed for high speed combat and action" to the game, along with three new vehicles (dirt bikes and lightweight anti-air vehicles are mentioned), a new dropship "with vehicle drop capabilities," and the return of the Capture the Flag game mode.

There isn't a specific release date confirmed yet for End Game, but expect it to arrive sometime in March 2013.

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.

Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy 13 Debut Trailer »

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.

The Corkcicle is made of BPA-free plastic and filled with reusable freeze gel. Simply place into any glass of wine, after some of the wine has been removed, and you wine will be ready in no time.
