The latest image that was cut out of the Batman Arkham City trailer shows us a mention of the Flying Graysons.  Is Robin going to make a cameo in Arkham City?

AYCG Podcast Episode #43: The Relic

It’s time for another super fun filled episode of the AYCG podcast! This week it’s just the three of us again as we go through superhero movie news and xbox spring updates. But let’s not jump the gun…

As for movies there wasn’t much worth talking about except that Arnold Schwarzenegger decided to “terminate” (yeah yeah bad pun but Jim says it first) acting this year, X-Men: First Class might not be as bad as we think, and the first image of Bane from the Dark Knight Rises shows up on the interwebs. Oh yeah, Mike was right about Bones and I feel like and ass now.

In the world of video games we still can’t get our free PlayStation games, Uncharted on the NGP will take place before the PS3 games, and I got the Xbox spring update but both Mike and Jim didn’t. Plus, Arkham City is getting a new voice for Harley Quinn, Penguin also appears in the game, and Duke Nukem has gone gold! All these shenanigans and more in what we like to think is a podcast!

Comic Book Movies in 2012: A Look Into the Crystal Ball

This year has a few big summer comic book movie blockbusters.  After the discussion on our podcast last week however, it really got me thinking about how Amazing next year could be.

AYCG Podcast Episode #42: The Meaning of Life

The gang is here again with all the news and views of the past week. This episode we talk about the end of Smallville and we learn the meaning of life.

So a bunch of television got renewed and cancelled, Keanu Reeves turns down a role, Stan Lee won’t make his usual cameo in First Class, and Ubisoft is going 3D. Also, a Game of Thrones just keeps getting better.

Batman goes multiplayer, Dead Island’s marketing still amazes, we find out when Guardian Heroes gets released and PSN is back…sort of, but you will get 2 free games. Plus, Gear of War 3 beta ends, and all the other stuff we’ve been playing.

PSN The Latest Issue

PSNetwork

Oh Sony, what a month you’ve had.  After one month of having their PSN down, they have brought the network back and asking everyone to reset their password for “security” reasons.  Well that procedure isn’t so secure it turns out.

Smallville Finale Review

After 10 seasons, Smallville finally ended with a huge two hour television event. I was right there with Clark as a freshman in high-school back in 2001 and I stuck with this sometimes frustrating series all the way to the end. Did the finale fly high or was it simply the death of Smallville?

Thor Review

The Mighty Thor hammered his way into theaters with a decent, if slightly underwhelming box office debut last week. But was it good? How did the god of thunder (the one that is not Raiden) fair in his big screen debut?
