Geek and Sundry's Critical Role

If you’re like me, you find that there is a slight lull in the TV viewing schedule around the holidays and during the months of January and February as some of the shows me and the wife watch regularly (Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. for instance) are on winter break.

So, in the mean time, I’ve come across a new show to obsess over and have become a weekly viewer. The best part is that it’s not even on TV as most people know it. The name of the show is Critical Role and it is shown on Thursdays on Twitch on the Geek and Sundry Twitch channel from 9-12 CST (most nights, they often play longer). You can also catch the episode on Mondays when it’s posted to Geek and Sundry’s web page.

Blindspot NBC Jaimie Alexander promo

Blindspot
Season 1 Episode 1: “Pilot”
Created by Martin Gero & Greg Berlanti
Directed by Mark Pellington
Written by Martin Gero
Starring Jaimie Alexander, Sullivan Stapleton, Audrey Esparza, Rob Brown, Marianne Jean-Baptiste, Ukweli Roach, Ashley Johnson
NBC
Air Date: Monday, September 21, 2015, 10pm

Thor actress Jaimie Alexander strips off her Asgardian Lady Sif armor in exchange for a fully tattooed physique as amnesiac Jane Doe in NBC’s new one-hour drama Blindspot. And how Jane makes her entrance on the show is eerie and compelling.

A large duffle bag is found on the crowded nighttime streets of Times Square, the heart of “see something, say something” New York City. A tag hanging on it reads “Call the FBI.” The NYPD bomb squad is dispatched but they won’t be finding a bomb. Instead, as they approach the bag, the zipper starts opening from the inside. What emerges as if from a cocoon is a frightened, naked women who’s tattooed from neck to toe. And, she has no memory of who she is… or of anything else.

Make This Happen: ‘The Last Of Us’ Star Troy Baker Wants To Be A Clicker In Movie Adaptation

The Last of Us Star Troy Baker

When it comes to video game actors, Troy Baker is one of the best in the business. Many who haven’t visited his IMDB page might be surprised to find out just how often they’ve heard the actor’s voice while they’re playing games. In Batman: Arkham City, he plays Two Face/Harvey Dent, Robin, and Tim Drake. He was the default male voice in Saints Row: The Third and the male President of the United States in Saints Row IV. He played Kai Leng, the assassin working for the Illusive Man and Cerberus in Mass Effect 3. He played Lyndon the Scoundrel in Diablo III. In LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes, Baker was Batman, Two Face, and Sinestro. He voiced Jazz, Jetfire, and Kickback in Transformers: Fall of Cybertron. In Injustice: Gods Among Us, he was Sinestro and Nightwing. The actor also recently played Delsin Rowe in Infamous: Second Son.

Then comes the big boys: Baker replaced the irreplaceable Mark Hamill as Joker for Batman: Arkham Origins, and totally nailed it. He was Booker DeWitt in BioShock Infinite. And, of course, in his most prominent role to date, Baker was the voice of Joel in Naughty Dog’s The Last of Us. He also has a couple of big upcoming games, voicing Ocelot in Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain (seen at the start of this video with Snake), Talion in Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor, and the villain Pagan Min in Far Cry 4.

If I wasn’t being clear enough, Troy Baker is the f’n man. And any requests he has, should be fulfilled immediately. So when he says he wants to play a clicker in the planned Last of Us movie, that simply needs to happen.

The Last of Us

Today we’re celebrating the release of The Last of Us Remastered, the next-gen upgrade of the 2013 Naughty Dog masterpiece.

Earlier we saw the full one-night-only live performance of the game, and now comes a little nostalgic reminiscing between the game’s two lead actors, Troy Baker (Joel) and Ashley Johnson (Ellie).

The two discuss early attempts at trying to cast the role of Joel, the game’s launch party, and its release on PlayStation 4. You can watch the chat below.

The Last of Us Joel, Ellie, and Tess

The next-gen update of Naughty Dog’s The Last of Us hits store shelves for Sony’s PS4 today, so it’s a damn fine day to enjoy some related goodies.

Last week we shared with you a trailer for a one-night-only live performance of the 2013 Game of the Year. That live performance did indeed take place last evening, and, thankfully for everyone who wasn’t able to attend or missed the live stream online, is now online in full.

You can watch it below, but if you’ve not yet played the game (What are you waiting for?! Go now, it’s that good!) do avoid this until you have.

It’s been assumed for a while now that Naughty Dog’s hit game The Last of Us would eventually get a release on PlayStation 4. It wouldn’t make much sense to release a game that incredible right before people started upgrading from a PS3 to a PS4 and leave it as an exclusive to the older console, even with PlayStation Now on the way.

Today Sony has officially announced The Last of Us Remastered for the PS4, which will run in 1080p and include higher resolution character models, improved shadows and lighting, upgraded textures, and more.

Much Ado About Nothing Image

For those who had not yet heard, back when director Joss Whedon was making that little superhero flick The Avengers, he also made an even smaller movie with a bunch of his Whedonverse friends in only twelve days.

The movie is Much Ado About Nothing, an adaptation of the William Shakespeare classic set in modern times. Whedon made the movie through Bellwether Pictures, a micro-studio Whedon started with Kai Cole that’s dedicated to do-it-yourself style indie narratives for all forms of media.

Now this ultra low budget film has itself a release date to plan for. You can find out when you can see it and check out a full rundown of who’s in the movie and who they’re playing below now!

Captain America The Avengers

Yesterday we brought you an interesting alternate opening to Marvel Studios’ The Avengers that will appear as an extra on the forthcoming Blu-ray. Today, another deleted scene from the movie has been released online.

You can watch the scene here below.

The scene acts as an alternate introduction to Steve Rogers (Chris Evans), better known to us as Captain America, and prefaces his first scene with S.H.I.E.L.D. honcho Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) in the final cut. We see Cap going about his everyday life in the modern world: pining for his lady love Peggy, riding the subway, and flirting with a coffee shop waitress (Ashley Johnson) who was briefly glimpses being saved by Captain America during the final battle with Loki and the Chitauri. This deleted moment also provides us with a brief look at the MetLife building that was replaced digitally in the final film with Stark Tower, which Steve can be seen sketching during his conversation with the waitress, as well as yet another priceless cameo by the Man himself, Stan Lee.

Ben 10 Alien Force DVDBen 10 Alien Force, Season
Vol. 3 DVD | Vol. 4 DVD
Created by Man of Action
Featuring the voices of Yuri Lowenthal, Ashley Johnson, Greg Cipes
Rated Y7
Warner Home Video

Ben 10 Alien Force Vol. 3 and 4 continues the journey of teenage hero Ben Tennyson, the bearer of the DNA changer Ominitrix. With his super powered cousin Gwen and Frienemy Kevin Levin, Ben continues on a mission to track down his Grandpa Max and fight off a new breed of alien invaders known only as the Highbreed. Volumes 3 and 4 collects the end of season one of the hit series and first five episodes of season two of the exciting kids cartoon.

Created by comic book alums Joe Kelly, Duncan Rouleau, Joe Casey, and Steven T. Seagle (AKA Man of Action Studios), each episode is pretty much a by the books cartoon geared toward young boys. The heroes encounter a problem. Ben uses the Omnitrix to turn into a new alien to combat said problem. Someone gets hurt or captured or both. Gwen and Kevin flirt in a family friendly way. Ben uses another alien to save the day. It is pretty much a rinse repeat process.

Ben 10 Alien Force: Season One, Vol. 2Ben 10 Alien Force
Season One, Vol. 2
Created by Man of Action
Featuring the voices of Yuri Lowenthal, Ashley Johnson, Greg Cipes
Rated Y7
Warner Home Video
Release Date: January 13, 2009

Ben 10 Alien Force Vol. 2 continues the journey of teenage hero Ben Tennyson. Alongside his cousin Gwen, his former nemesis Kevin Levin, and with the help of his DNA changer the Omintrix , Ben is on a mission to find his Grandpa Max and kick some alien butt along the way. Created by Man of Action (aka comic writers and artists Joe Kelly, Duncan Rouleau, Joe Casey, and Steven T. Seagle), Vol. 2 contains four episodes from the first season of the popular cartoon.

There is really nothing new to say about this series that hasn’t already been said. Ben 10 is a by the books cartoon and that is not necessarily a bad thing. It actually reminds me a lot of the old cartoons of yesteryear. It is short and concise and overall, a satisfying experience. Most of the cartoon is hand drawn, a practice that seems to be becoming a lost art. It is also easy to follow for viewers who are just getting into Ben 10 but still able to touch upon pre-existing storylines from previous episodes to give a sense of continuity for long-time viewers.
