Cannon Films are burned into my nucleotides

Cobra, Missing in Action, Masters of the Universe, Superman IV, and so on. The 80's were weird and so were the movies made during that decade.

Electric Boogaloo is a documentary about the strange cinematic artifact that was Cannon Films.


Deadpool video game gets current gen remake on Xbox One and PS4

This rehash of the original will include all the DLC and such for a reported fifty bones. Not sure if this might be worthwhile or is just a cynical cash in with the movie looming on the horizon.

The cutscenes were fun, and can be viewed on youtube if that's your thing.

'Attack On Titan' Board Game announced

Reposted from ICv2:

Cryptozoic Entertainment will release an Attack on Titan board game, designed by Antoine Bauza and Ludovic Maublanc, in the U.S. in 2016. Bauza and Maublanc have collaborated on Asmodee’s Rampage, but also have extensive individual design credits. Bauza is probably best known for Kennerspiel des Jahres winner 7 Wonders and Spiel des Jahres winner Hanabi. Maublanc’s Cash ‘n’ Guns (from Asmodee) was nominated for an Origins Award this year.
A new mechanic is introduced in the game, in which the Titan piece (played by one player) is a vertical element and the hero game pieces (played by the other players) climb it to try to take it down. The game will be produced via a collaboration between Cryptozoic and France-based Don’t Panic Games. Don’t Panic was formed in 2013 and is producing its first tabletop board game, Drakerys, which was funded last summer via Kickstarter ($180,318 from 758 backers). 
The game is being demoed at Anime Expo in Los Angeles and Japan Expo in Paris, both this weekend.
