Never have times been so tumultuous behind the glass walls at SDCP than in the latest episode of Mad Men. Almost the entire episode focused tightly on the business side of things, specifically the agency’s attempt to acquire Jaguar and the measures it took to do so. It was intense, emotional, and ultimately heartbreaking, and it was the most captivating episode of this season.
The Joe collecting community has a tendency to go a little nuts when Hasbro tries to sneak one past us, and that’s exactly what happened with this mystery wave of six figures that showed up on the forums with no explanation from Hasbro as to when and where they would be available… and not even what they were.
While my opinion of the game itself is somewhat conflicted, Awesomenauts has one of the greatest theme songs ever conceived for a video game. The band Sonic Picnic really managed to capture the crazy chaotic fun of the game with this ’80s glam metal-inspired opening track, and it’s free to download (as long as you mention it on Facebook or Twitter).

The last thing I was expecting walking in to Men In Black 3 was that the movie wouldn’t be dreadful, so imagine my surprise when not only was it NOT awful, but it was pretty damn good! After a dull first sequel, Men In Black 3 feels like a real return to form for not only the semi-franchise, but also director Barry Sonnenfeld, and it makes for a very enjoyable and consistently entertaining Summer blockbuster.
As any self-respecting ‘shmup’ fanatic already knows, CAVE’s developers have been releasing quality bullet-hell titles for over two decades, earning their title as the true kings of the genre. Previously unavailable outside of Japan, Rising Star Games has published one of CAVE’s latest titles, Akai Katana, domestically as an Xbox 360 exclusive. It’s big on fun, but a bit short on content with an unfortunately poor presentation and steep price tag.
Have you ever wanted to see someone get brutally slapped across the face with a fish? Yes, of course you have. Well look no further than these new screenshots for the upcoming open-world action game Sleeping Dogs, which show off some of the brilliantly brutal aspects of the game’s combat.
