Every time Threezero previews something new, we immediately fall in love with it.  Such is the case with their latest tease for one of the most anticipated video game releases of the year.  When word came out that they were partnering with Bethesda Game Studios for Fallout 4, fans started speculating on what would be released.

Lightsabers: A Roll Call Of Star Wars Most Recognizable Weapons

“This was the formal weapon of a Jedi Knight. Not as clumsy or random as a blaster. More skill than simple sight was required for its use. An elegant weapon. It was a symbol as well. Anyone can use a blaster or a fusioncutter—but to use a lightsaber well was a mark of someone a cut above the ordinary.”
―Obi-Wan Kenobi star-wars-lightsabers-infographic-header

When George Lucas first began the epic tale of Star Wars, little did he know that he would be dominating the pop culture universe for the next 38+ years.  Besides lovable and despicable characters, bizarre alien worlds, and unforgettable musical scores, Mr. Lucas also gave us one of the most beloved weapons of all-time, the lightsaber.

What kid hasn’t taken an empty poster tube, a stick, a curtain rod and waved it around making the iconic lightsaber sound.  Well the history of this weapon is as diverse as the characters that wield them.

Take a look at this infographic and let us know which ones are YOUR favorite lightsabers and may The Force be with you.

Jurassic World Stomps Into Homes This October

Jurassic World made us, once again, fantasize that dinosaurs could walk the earth in present day.  We all loved it so much that it has become THE #1 movie of the year.  This is no small feat considering the competition this summer.  Regardless, it was Universal Pictures’ cash-cow, (or maybe cash-Rex?) and currently owns the honor of being the third-highest grossing film in history

jurassic-world-trailer-poster-sea-dinosaurScreen Shot 2015-08-28 at 6.00.47 PMWell, on October 1st and October 20th, the movie that left us screaming, “RUN!,” arrives in homes on Digital HD and 3-D Blu-ray, Blu-ray, DVD and On Demand.

jurassic-world1Shattering records globally, Jurassic World crushed the opening-weekend box-office, scoring the highest domestic, international and worldwide openings of all time. The film has taken in more than $1.6 billion globally to become the third-highest grossing film in history. Now fans can experience the thril land awe when Jurassic World arrives on Digital HD on October 1, 2015 and on 3-D Blu-rayTM, Blu-rayTM, DVD and On Demand on October 20,2015, from Universal Pictures Home Entertainment. More than two decades since Steven Spielberg’s “Jurassic Park” was released, fans of the original films and new moviegoers alike can witness the story come full circle as the park that was only a promise comes to life.

Jurassic_world_3Now, 22 years later, an even bigger and enormously popular attraction has risen on Isla Nubar: Jurassic World. To keep attendance high, the park operators introduce a new, genetically modified hybrid creature called Indominus Rex. Bigger, stronger and far more intelligent than any dinosaur that ever walked the earth; the secretive new breed also proves more dangerous than anyone ever anticipated.

Executive-produced by franchise creator Steven Spielberg and directed by Colin Trevorrow (Safety Not Guaranteed), Jurassic World stars Chris Pratt (Guardians of the Galaxy, “Parks and Recreation”) as Owen Grady, the park’s ex-military expert in animal behavior, and Bryce Dallas Howard (The Help, The Twilight Saga), as Claire Dearing, Jurassic World’s driven careerist, teaming up to save the park’s tourists when chaos erupts.

Jurassic_World_5Vincent D’Onofrio (Men in Black, “Law & Order: Criminal Intent”), Jake Johnson (“New Girl,” “Let’s Be Cops”), Nick Robinson (“Melissa and Joey”), Ty Simpkins (Insidious series), BD Wong (Jurassic Park, “Law & Order: SVU”), Judy Greer (Ant-Man) and Irrfan Khan (Life of Pi) also star in the blockbuster adventure that will delight fans of the original as much as it thrills a new generation of viewers.

Dark Horse Comics & Christofer Emgård To Release Prequel Comic To Mirror’s Edge Catalyst Video Game

Mirror’s Edge Catalyst is an exciting new video game coming from Electronic Arts, available in February 2016.  The synopsis goes like this:

Mirrors_EdgeMirror’s Edge is an action game set in a futuristic world of ‘runners,’ ‘Big Brother’ surveillance, and adventure. Players control Faith, a courier who runs along rooftops, up pipes and around every kind of obstacle to get from point A to point B. Paramilitary forces called the ‘PK’ are dispatched to eradicate runners like Faith, and they shoot at the player’s character with various handguns, tazers, and machine guns. Players can also engage in firefights and hand-to-hand combat with the PK, and a slight red blood effect is emitted from wounded enemies. In addition, a cutscene depicts a dead man slumped over on his desk with his head lying in a small pool of red blood. Characters sometimes use profanity (e.g., ‘sh*t,’ ‘damn,’ and ‘bastard’) during cut-scenes and gameplay.

Christofer_EmgårdTo quell fans thirst for all thing Faith related, Dark Horse Comics is releasing a prequel to the game with a comic book scripted by the writer of Catalyst, Christofer Emgård“Mirror’s Edge: Exordium #1” will take fans up to the events of the highly anticipated new Mirror’s Edge game.  This exhilarating comic prequel delves into the story of Faith, one of the most celebrated heroines in video games! Dare to enter the fast-paced, high-stakes world of life on the mirror’s edge!

MERecently IGN had a chance to speak with Christofer Emgård and here is some of that interview.

IGN Comics: What’s the quick pitch for Mirror’s Edge: Exordium?

Christofer Emgard: Faith has grown up off the grid among the runners of Glass, but even though she is fast and daring, her mentor and adoptive father Noah is reluctant to give her real assignments. He considers her reckless and hotheaded, and the schism between them is growing daily.

Secretly defying him, Faith does runs on the side, and one day she stumbles on a rare link to her dark past. The discovery sets off a chain of events which will force her to reexamine many things about herself, and in the end she must risk everything in order to stay true to her values.


IGN: With you writing both the comic and the game, are there any elements that link the two?

Emgard: They can be experienced as stand-alone and self-contained, but Mirror’s Edge Catalyst and Exordium are deeply intertwined. Events that are set in motion in Exordium will continue to play out in Mirror’s Edge Catalyst , and a handful of characters appear in both the game and the comic. From a thematic standpoint, Faith’s journey in Exordium is one of self-discovery and personal growth, and that’s an ongoing process which stretches across both the comic and the game, and beyond.
