“Robocop” Remake Pushed Back

Confessions of a Nerf Herder

Joel Kinnaman Normally when a film’s pushed back, it’s not a good sign. So, with that in mind, Jose Padilha’s Robocop remake has had its release date pushed back. Instead of the planning 7th February, 2014 release, the film will now hits screens on 12th February, 2014. I really wouldn’t read too much into this, as it seems to be just a case of Sony moving the date to accommodate the 7th February release of George Clooney’s The Monuments Men, which is also a Sony production.

The official blurb for Robocop reads:

In the film, the year is 2028 and multinational conglomerate OmniCorp is at the center of robot technology. Their drones are winning American wars around the globe and now they want to bring this technology to the home front. Alex Murphy (Joel Kinnaman) is a loving husband, father and good cop doing his best to stem the tide of…

Games for the weekend: He-Man

Gigaom

Games for the Weekend is a weekly feature aimed at helping you avoid doing something constructive with your downtime. Each Friday we’ll be recommending a game for Mac, iPhone or iPad that we think is awesome. Here is one cool enough to keep you busy during this weekend.

He-ManHe-Man: He-Man: The Most Powerful Game in the Universe (Free, Universal) is an arcade-style game based on the classic 80s cartoon hero He-Man and the Masters of the Universe. Skeletor is up to his old tricks and manages to steal He-Man’s key to castle Grayskull. It is up to you to get it back.

Sliding your left thumb back and forth controls which direction He-Man is moving. Tapping on the right side of the screen will attack and a quick swipe up on the right side of the screen will cause He-Man to jump. A double swipe results in a double jump.  After…

L.A. Gear Lights vs Reebok Pumps

“If you wanna own the night, you’ve gotta own the light.” Classic.

The Nostalgia Blog

This was never really a debate for me as my parents just bought me generic running shoes from Bi Way (remember Bi Way?) But for most of my other friends growing up, the battle between these shoes was as close to a gang war any of us would ever be in…except those two guys I know who actually died in a gang war…or maybe we were just playing Nintendo. Who can remember these things?

Anyway, while I had/have no real insight into either shoe, I did always want to get personal license plates on my car that said: LA GEAR. How sweet would that be?

Blast from the past: Sega Dreamcast

Loved this system and still own it today!! Remember playing Sonic Adventure for the first time and the killer whale chasing you as the dock collapses? Awesome!

Who remembers the excitement of The Sega Dreamcast being released? With that unique and intuitive controller and that cool little visual memory card accessory? I never owned one personally but my brother did. He used to hate the way that every time he came home from college I would be in his bed room playing Resident Evil Code: Veronica. I loved that game dearly.

The Dreamcast is yet another example of a product which was ahead of its time. Released globally in 1999 it way more powerful than Sony’s Playstation and Sega’s own Saturn. Sega really needed to make amends for its failing Saturn console and all seemed well when the Dreamcast kicked of with strong sales figures.  Unfortunately for Sega however the much anticipated Playstation 2 was just around the corner. This posed a major threat to Sega and unfortunately hit Dreamcast sales fatally.

The Dreamcast was officially discontinued…
