See Brand New ‘Futurama’ Footage In ‘Worlds Of Tomorrow’ Trailer
The Movie God   |  @   |  

Futurama: Worlds of Tomorrow

If you’ve been twitching and itching at the extreme lack of new Futurama in your life these days, I have just the thing for you. Booze. Lots of booze. It helps you forget all the evil people who have repeatedly taken the show away from you while other animated series go on and on. Hell, some of those shows are old enough to drink with you.

But that’s not all (Call now and you’ll receive…). Earlier this year we found out about Futurama: Worlds of Tomorrow, an upcoming mobile game. Not just any mobile game, though. The original Futurama crew helped with the game, including the voice cast. That means it’s the closest thing to new episodes we currently have to look forward to.

A teaser trailer for Worlds of Tomorrow has been released online. And yes, it features brand new animated footage and voice acting to enjoy, just like we got on the show. Check it out below!

Brooklyn Geekfest 18

It’s a strange occurrence to walk through a trendy Brooklyn neighborhood and see people dressed in costume walking in and out of a hotel… in Spring! Last Saturday, the Best Western Gregory Hotel in Bay Ridge Brooklyn, hosted the first annual Brooklyn Geekfest, brought to you by Gotham City Games. The miniature comic-con style festival featured two rooms, one dedicated entirely to gaming, featuring multiple consoles, and ongoing tournaments throughout the day. The other was filled with vendors selling toys, homemade video art, and of course video game accoutrement. As is now tradition with any geek-themed convention, there was a cosplay contest for both adults and children.

Check out our interview with host and the owner of Gotham City Games, Ralph Pugliese, and our image gallery below.

The Movie God   |  @   |  

Futurama

It’s been about three and a half years now since we last saw a new episode of Futurama, and there’s no signs of Comedy Central or Netflix or anyone else bringing it back to life anytime soon.

But all is not lost. There are other ways to get your fix on the way. A new mobile game titled Futurama: Worlds of Tomorrow has been announced, and it will feature the original voice cast and writers returning to help to make it the best experience we could hope for short of actually getting new episodes.

Book Review: Art Of Atari

Art of Atari review

Art of Atari
Hardcover | Kindle
Written by Tim Lapetino
Foreword by Ernest Cline
Afterword by Robert V. Conte
Dynamite Entertainment
Publication Date: October 25, 2016

Art of Atari, a lavish book which covers all things visually historic and celebratory regarding the storied, pioneering video game company, is out in bookstores now, and without question, if there ever was a must-have book for the video game zealot, the pop culture maven, or the scores of gamers in between, this is it.

Absolutely essential from cover to cover and irresistible in its one-two dazzling punch with its presentment of facts and a literal overstuffed yet 100 percent effective usage of photos containing pretty much every single facet of the company’s output that required some sort of art, Art of Atari leaves no stone un-turned, not even the most minute pebble. From the packaging of the boxes for its line of 2600 VCS games to the sides and front of its successful and now almost legendary line of arcade coin-op games, and advertisements that stretched from stark simple white background designs with a spectrum of colorful game boxes to the most rebel rousing and sensory lifting art of the highest caliber, it’s all showcased this hardcover tome, and then some.

Book Review: Dungeons & Dragons: Dungeonology

Dungeons & Dragons: Dungeonology
Hardcover
Written by Matt Forbeck
Illustrations by Matt Forbeck
Candlewick Press
Release Date: October 21, 2016
Cover Price: $24.99

Once upon a time, I was the manager of a Waldenbooks. It was a magical time that spanned nearly a decade and included some of the greatest moments of my life. I loved discussing books with my patrons and always made time to introduce people to new authors and genres. But far surpassing all of that was watching children discover a love of reading. Some were encouraged by family while others found it on their own. Towards the end of that era, a new type of book was finding its way onto bookshelves across the land: the ‘Ology series. It started simply enough, appealing to the general public with enough interactive items within its pages that it created a niche with readers. Unabated, this trend has diversified enough that we have been given something I never thought I would see: Dungeons & Dragons: Dungeonology, a Forgotten Realms ‘Ology. If I wasn’t forty-six, I would probably squee with delight.

Nevermind, it happened anyway.
