Convention time is upon us once again! And that means San Diego Comic Con will soon grace us with its presence this week from July 9-12, 2015. A lot has happened since last year’s event. Marvel’s Avengers 2: Age of Ultron was released earlier this spring leading to new heroes joining the team. Not to mention our friendly neighbourhood Spider-man joining the MCU. Another season of Game of Thrones has wrapped up leaving viewers with even more questions than before. The DC movies are in high gear with promotion amping up with Batman vs. Superman and The Suicide Squad is getting a lot of attention as it continues filming in Toronto . And that’s only a small sampling! It’s been quite the year and I’m excited for what’s in store for the future. Here’s a list of 12 things I’m thrilled to see, hear, or just have someone utter under their breath at Comic Con 2015.

How to Survive the Steam Summer Sale 2015 Edition

steamsummersale2015

It’s that time again… Steam Summer Sale time! This year the sale is starting even earlier than it did last year and will run from June 11-21, 2015. With E3 just around the corner it’s going to be a busy time for gaming. For the past 2 years I’ve made posts about tips on saving money through these sales. And while my advice largely stays the same, things change year to year and there are some other considerations that need to be taken. One of the biggest changes to Steam happened very recently with the addition of their refund policy. And of course, every year Steam has something different up their sleeve for the community with fun events. So, let’s get started!

New 3DS announcement! Iwata you sly bastard :P

So, Nintendo surprised me by uploading a Nintendo Direct today that included a HUGE announcement (plus it’s great to see Iwata is recovering well from his surgery). They presented us with a new 3DS system! And it’s Japanese release date is October 11, 2014. That’s less than two months away! WTF.

Personally, I think this is a good time for an updated 3DS. Nintendo has a lot of momentum with new 3DS games coming out soon (I just got my Professor Layton vs. Phoenix Wright today!) and people seem to really be appreciating the 3DS more. Some people have complained that Nintendo is ripping people off, but I don’t feel that way with the new 3DS. Not like how I did with the DSi and I think they’ve learned from that. The new 3DS honestly feels like a lot of QoL changes that were a long time coming. To me, it’s the natural evolution of the system.

Now, let’s break it down!

Avengers 2: Age of Ultron Cast Flashback

Most of us know that Marvel has their movies lined up for the next 50 years. Ok, that may be an exaggeration, but sometimes it feels like it. With the success of their Marvel Universe on the big screen the studio has been ruling San Diego Comic Con this year. Most of the cast was on hand Day 3 for the panel, including newcomer characters Quicksilver, Scarlet Witch, Vision, Ultron, and Thanos. But before these actors will be burned into our brains as these super heroes and villains, I thought we’d take a walk down memory lane and remember what they’ve done B.M. (before Marvel).

Moon Prism Power Makeup! Sailor Moon gets the reboot treatment

I’m surprised that people are STILL making Sailor Moon reboots. When I was a kid, I loved the original NA dub by DiC. I got all my friends into it too. It played during the noon hour everyday, so we’d hurry to my place to watch it. I remember obsessively learning how to draw Sailor Moon’s anime art style. I also remember blowing people’s minds with it as it was a style they were unfamiliar with. I even dressed up as Sailor Mars for Halloween one year. But that was years and years ago. The last time I even thought about Sailor Moon was when the live-action series, Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon, was making the subbed rounds on the internet back in 2003. Now, on the 20th anniversary of the manga series, Toei Animation has rebooted the series as Sailor Moon Crystal.
