News: Marvel Doing Agent Coulson Shorts

Oh yes, Marvel is going to explore the connective tissue between The Avengers, Iron Man, Thor, Captain America, and The Incredible Hulk starting with two Agent Coulsen shorts.  The first titled “The Consultant” appears to have Coulsen attempting to manipulate General Ross.  General Ross is the guy who is constantly chasing down the Hulk, probably since Banner (Hulk’s human side) kind of slept with his daughter.  Follow a link below to see a clip for “The Consultant” to be included with the Thor Blu-Ray.

This week we start our first entirely news and speculation based podcast!  We will endeavor to bring these out about once a month, sometimes as extra podcasts.  So somehow Scott and I manage to talk for 3 hours on this one which was a complete accident!  While we intended on talking about video game news as well that would have been another hour so we didn’t.

Movie/TV news and speculation includes The Avengers, Superman, The Dark Knight Rises, Green Lantern, Thor, Captain America, Firefly, Wonder Woman, Smallville, Iron Man 3, The Amazing Spiderman, X-Men First Class, DragonAge Redemption, The Wolverine, and many others.  Comic news discussion includes the Fantastic Four and many others.  Non-news topics include Batman Under the Red Hood, Superman and Shazam the Return of Black Atom,Final Crisis, and lots more!

Videogame Review: SMT Nocturne

Shin Megami Tensei (SMT) :Nocturne is probably one of my favorite games of all time and it is a game that many should be thanking.  Persona 3 and 4, Digital Devil Saga, they all owe their fighting mechanics to Shin Megami Tensei Nocturne.  Oh yes the system has been there at least since the first Persona hit United States shores, but this is the system and graphics engine that has been used and reused constantly since Nocturne’s Ps2 debut.  This game is pretty much an under appreciated piece of history.

SMT: Nocturne is a turn based RPG with a large world that is explored in sections.  The biggest difference between Nocturne and other RPG”s is the inclusion of a robust demon fusion system, consisting of around 200 fusable demons.  Add a skill inheritance mechanic and the customization options are fairly limitless.  For the world you explore the inner side of a sphere filled with demons and various factions all petitioning god to remake the world in their own image.  Did I mention it is a highly philosophic game as well?  Unfortunately the adult working a 40-50 hour work week will probably never have the time to fully explore the game.
