Article There's a Glow-in-the-Dark Art Show In Brooklyn

By Jake Young / March 27, 2014

Bottleneck Gallery is an art space that has a knack for putting on shows that really hit you in the nostalgia. This month they've brought back one of their most popular shows with "When the Lights Go Out 2", in which every artist must incorporate glow-in-the-dark pigments into their pieces. The result is a whole gallery that literally transforms under darkness. The exhibit only runs until April 9th, but you can buy artwork and prints at the Bottleneck Gallery website, with a portion of the proceeds going to charity.

We've highlighted a few of the works that caught our attention.

Article Titanfall Trolls Cheaters In the Best Way Possible

By Andrew Bridgman / March 27, 2014

Titanfall, like any other game with competitive multiplayer released in the last few decades, has a little bit of an issue with hackers. They use aimbots, wallhacks, and more to more or less ruin the game experience for everyone else. Also, for themselves, because what's the fun in playing a game like Titanfall if you're going to cheat? ARE GIANT MECHS AND JETPACKS NOT ENOUGH FOR YOU?

Anyways, the makers of Titanfall have come up with a fun way of dealing with these Swordfish-wannabes: let them battle each other. ONLY each other.

Article 5 Theories About 'Game of Thrones' That Are Totally Right

By Andrew Bridgman / March 26, 2014

Theory Corner: Game of Thrones  

 

Few TV shows inspire the passionate debating and theorizing as Game of Thrones - and as someone who's seen the first 40 minutes of the pilot, I can see why! There are so many characters and relationships and locations to keep track of. And with the new season premiering soon, I thought I might share some of my most well-thought out theories with you. Enjoy!

 

1. I think Joffrey might be the child of Cersei and HER BROTHER!

Theory Corner: Game of Thrones

Okay, I know this seems a little out there, but hear me out: we know Cersei and her brother have some kind of "VERY SPECIAL" relationship, we know that everyone in the Lannister family is blonde, AND we know that both Joffrey and Tyrion are like pretty close to the same height. Coincidence? Methinks NOT!

In other words, Cersei and Tyrion have definitely been boning. They should call this show Game of Bones! (because, seriously, there's a lot of sex AND like skeleton bones laying around)

  11. Alfred

    I'm afraid so, Master Wayne.

  12. Bruce

    As in, why I would bother putting Bat-nipples on my Batsuit?

  13. Alfred

    Indeed. I just don't underst-

  14. Bruce

    Yo, Alfred, what'd I say? Eyes up here.

  15. Alfred

    Sorry again, sir, you're just blasting those Bat-nips pretty hard. It's difficult to not look at them.

  16. Bruce

    Precisely.

Article Other X-Men Arcs Fox Can Adapt To Film

By Andrew Bridgman / March 24, 2014

 

It seems like nothing short of a miracle that X-Men: Days of Future Past is being released - it's one of the most beloved arcs in X-Men history, but one that many thought would never make it to the big screen. It's a complicated story that involves parallel timelines, time travel, and the deaths of many popular X-Men characters. Also, it's protagonist is Kitty Pryde, who (thus far in the series) had received very little screentime. To make the property more viable for the mass audiences, Bryan Singer & Co. have changed the protagonist of the story to popular X-Men character Wolverine.

Now that this arc is being turned into a film, what other popular X-Men arcs could be next? Here are 4 we think could work out great.

 

The Dark Phoenix Saga

  xmen

I know, I know - they already adapted the Dark Phoenix saga for the big screen with X-Men 3: The Last Stand. However, I think we can all agree that that movie was a terrible abomination that shouldn't count, so let's just pretend it doesn't exist.

Here's how it could be reimagined for the current continuity: on a mission into space, the team is exposed to radiation from a solar flare. But it's actually the cosmic entity known as "The Phoenix" that finds a host in - you guessed it - Wolverine. Now Wolverine can fly around and is encased in flame and has super telekinetic powers - but he still uses his claws a bunch to slash up some bad guys (no blood is shown though, because c'mon, gotta get that PG-13 rating). Ultimately the Wolverine Phoenix must sacrifice himself to save the X-Men and the world....OR DOES HE? See, he can heal, so you think he's dead, but he's actually still alive. BOOM! ROLL CREDITS!

Article There's a New Twitch Plays Pokemon Going On - Emerald Version

By Andrew Bridgman / March 23, 2014

via Variis

It began as an bizarre sociological experiment - getting thousands of people to control the same game of Pokemon Red via Twitch.tv chat. The original run took nearly 400 continuous hours of play and left the internet exhausted with memes and fan art and talk about what an insane idea this was. But then it continued - 24 hours after the completion of Pokemon Red, they powered forward with Pokemon Crystal version.

It was no longer a simple one and done experiment - it was much bigger than that. This is now an institution - with "Twitch Plays" being applied to other games, including The Legend of Zelda and Tetris and many others.

But coming back to the channel that started it all, they've finished Crystal version and are moving on to Generation 3 - Emerald version.

Although we tried to extensively cover the original run, we won't be tracking this too closely. This is no longer an event - it's going to be an ongoing thing that's here to stay. Still, it's worth checking in on every now and then to see what madness and new religions are being cooked up by thousands of people chaotically trying to ram their way through a videogame designed to be played by one person at a time.

For the first time, Twitch Plays Pokemon is playing with a girl trainer. Her name is "A". You might think that's just because it's impossible for this many people controlling a game to get anything other than a short, random assortment of letters. You'd be wrong.

The "A" stands for "Anarchy." You see, A isn't your typical Pokemon trainer. She's dedicated herself to being an agent of chaos, to upending the status quo, to tearing apart the delicate balance of society. Appropriately, her starting Pokemon was Torchic. Because some trainers just want to watch the world burn.

Basically, we're playing as The Joker.
