Dying Light Devs Launch “#DrinkRightDyingLight” and “DrinkForDLC” Campaigns

Standard

Techland, the developers of Dying Light, took a shot at Bungie’s Destiny/Redbull partnership earlier this weekend while generating some interest for their own game by asking players to tweet pictures of themselves drinking water with the hash tag “#DrinkRightDyingLight” to get free downloadable content.

The message went viral, and now Techland is backing it with a new hashtag that promises even more DLC depending on how many folks get on board.

If you’ve got this game, a Twitter account, and like free stuff I suggest you get on board. I know I did.

New Promotional Photo Released for The Walking Dead Season Six

Standard

AMC released some interesting promotional art for the upcoming season of The Walking Dead. Many are speculating that a showdown may be brewing, but I wouldn’t read too much into it.

 

I think Rick and his group will need to learn from Morgan, rather than protest him. Plus, if we read too much into past promo art, we might think Rick hates traffic, busses, and fences.

Marvel Officially Casts Their New Peter Parker/Spider-Man

Standard

According to IGN, the new Spider-Man for the Marvel Cinematic Universe will be none other Tom Holland.

The young actor doesn’t appear to have many large projects to his credit, but Marvel remains confident he will do a great job.

Holland seems to for the bill for the younger Spider-Man Marvel has long been rumored to be skewing towards, and definitely bears a resemblance to Peter Parker of the Ultimate Spider-Man universe. 

  

Also of note, Jon Watt has been pegged as director for the Spider-Man solo film coming in 2017. Interestingly enough, Watt also does not have an extensive background of huge projects, so it will be interesting to see what the duo can bring to the table.

It’s also worth mentioning that we may not have to wait long to see Holland in action, as Spider-Man is rumored to appear in next spring’s Captain America: Civil War.

Standard

At around noon eastern time today, the official Gamestop Twitter account tweeted that the retailer would be diversifying its product lineup and will now be selling retro gaming products to the masses via Gamestop.com.

Screen Shot 2015-06-22 at 12.29.56 PMThis comes on the heels of not only the purchase of Think Geek, but also a trial period selling retro merchandise in select markets.

With the continuously surging popularity of digital downloads, it appears the gaming giant is looking to find new ways to sustain business. At this time the prices don’t look too steep considering the ability to use store credit and promo codes toward purchases, though it will be interesting to see the condition of the pre-owned merchandise being shipped out to customers.
