The Final Countdown: GoT Vacation, Invisibility Sucks and Streamer SWAT-ed

Published by under Final Countdown


Go here to see where to see the Game of Thrones cast until 2015.

We’ve got a while until Game of Thrones returns to HBO for season five, probably sometime next spring. Until then, to get your Westeros fix, here’s where you can find your favorite cast members (I tried to include only projects out this year or early next, which is why you won’t see, for instance, Pixels).”

The Final Countdown: Misleading Trailers , Soprano Answers and Twitch Attack

Published by under Final Countdown


Go here to see the most hilariously misleading trailers.

Movie trailers have the difficult job of convincing people to see a movie even when it isn’t marketable (or good at all). So it’s easy to understand the little tricks marketing pulls, like editing together unrelated lines of dialogue, or including the movie’s only two funny scenes in their entirety.”

The Final Countdown: Easter Eggs, Emmy Fashion and Pokemon Fighting Game

Published by under Final Countdown


Go here to see bizarre sexual easter eggs hidden in kids games.

We tend to forget that the people who made the classic games of our youth were gamers themselves, just like you or us — and just like you (but not us), they were also big pervs. Since most of these games were made before instant Internet porn became a thing, some of the developers had to express their most basic desires anywhere they could … like, for example, in some innocent children’s game.”

The Final Countdown: Josh Charles, Celebrity Endorsement and Sony Bomb Threat

Published by under Final Countdown

Go here to see 40 reasons Josh Charles should win an Emmy.

LOOK AT THOSE FACES. JUST LOOK AT ‘EM. It made me remember how much I love the man, and how much I miss seeing him on my TV. So, to fill that empty space in my life and because he’s nominated for Emmy that he probably won’t win (you come at the Dinklage, you best not miss) but should, I went down the Josh Charles hole for you guys.”

The Final Countdown: Bad Trailers, Jackman Lifts and Video Game Journalism

Published by under Final Countdown


Go here to see when movie trailers go wrong.

Friends. I love trailers. No, no, no, you don’t understand. I love trailers. One of my earliest moviegoing experiences was seeing the Mighty Morphin Powers Rangers trailer for the first time. I don’t remember what movie it played with, but who cares, because it’s the trailer that almost made little nine-year-old me stop breathing.

The Final Countdown: Video Game Details, Best TV Characters and Ultimate Evil

Published by under Final Countdown


Go here to see horrifying details in video games. 

As kids, we didn’t really pay attention to the moral implications of our video games. Destroying a city full of civilians in Rampage was no different from eliminating a line of blocks in Tetris. But at some point little bastards grow a moral compass, and when we look back at our harmless games, all the rose-colored glasses in the world couldn’t hide the blood.”

The Final Countdown: Pop Culture Outrage, Step Up and Reddit on Xbox

Published by under Final Countdown


Go here to see the dumbest outrage about fictional characters.

“There are two statements you can make with 100 percent certainty about any fictional character in history: somebody has drawn that character naked, and someone has voiced a public complaint about that character for an objectively ludicrous reason.”

The Final Countdown: Terrifying Game Covers, Creepy Disney and Blizzard Cinematics

Published by under Final Countdown


Go here to see the most needlessly terrifying video game covers.

“Aren’t you fed up with the homogeny of all these modern video game covers? Roughly 80 percent are roid-chinned white dudes holding guns while stuff explodes in the background. Don’t you wish game companies would let the designers have a bit of artistic freedom? Yeah? Be careful what you wish for.”

The Final Countdown: Personalizing Tragedy, Horror Comics and Video Game Resume

Published by under Final Countdown


Go here to see why we personalize celebrity deaths.

“Without fail, the deaths of the rich and famous bring out the best and worst in all of us. For some, we celebrate and honor and look inward. For others, we tear down and denigrate and write off as meaningless, disparaging those who dare feel feelings of any kind about something so frivolous as the death of a stranger.”

The Final Countdown: Best TV Characters, Batman Lonely and Tomb Raider Deal

Published by under Final Countdown

arya stark

Go here to see who the best characters on TV are.

Entertainment Weekly opened up a poll on their site asking “Who is the best character on television,” and I absolutely adore who the readers chose as the top choice. I don’t agree with it, necessarily, and I suspect that some Bob’s Burgers Twitter or Facebook groups got involved, but it’s a fun choice, all the same.”

The Final Countdown: Celebrity Talents, Outlander Thrives and 1 TB Xbox One

Published by under Final Countdown


Go here to see celebrities that are great at something surprising.

“Tom Cruise would probably be a shitty plumber. The truth is, most people are only extraordinarily great at one thing (if that) and celebrities are no different — Shaquille O’Neal was a fine basketball player but would likely not have become famous if he’d focused entirely on acting and rapping.”
