Sony Picks Peter Parker

Looks like the new Peter Parker will be played by Josh Hutcherson. Josh Hutcherson is best known for staring in Cirque du Freak: The Vampire’s Assistant and Journey to the Center of the Earth. This 17 year old actor has been reported to have been cast for the Spider-man’s Peter Parker by Blue Sky Disney.  This seems to leave me with more questions. Who will be the Villain? Who will be playing the Villain? Who will be playing the love interest? Those questions and many more. Looks like we will just have to wait to find out more.

Hulu Plus is on the way

Well, it’s finally come. There are now reports that Hulu plans to launch a subscription service in the near future. It’s been rumored for months, but now there’s confirmation. The subscription will cost $10 per month, and will be rolling out to select users as early as later this month. Obviously, if people are going to be paying for this, they’ll want more content, which is why Hulu is reported to be in talks with CBS, Viacom, and Time Warner to add their shows to Hulu’s already sizable catalog. Along with the traditional computer environment, Hulu claims to have options in the work for iPad and, as rumored, video game consoles, along with set-top boxes. Could this herald the end of cable television as we know it? It’s already happening to music purchasing and movie rentals, what’s stopping it from happening to television as well? We live in the internet age, and it seems that cable providers either need to recognize that and form some kind of counteroffensive, or embrace obsolescence.

UPDATE: It’s been all over the place for the past couple of days, but now it’s officially confirmed. Hulu Plus membership invitations will start going out gradually over the next couple of months, starting now. For $10 a month, Hulu’s prepared to offer you an extended catalog that will be available on iPad, iPhone, and select television services. There will also be a PS3 version rolling out in the next few months (possibly exclusive to Playstation Plus subscribers), as well as an Xbox 360 version available to Gold membership subscribers sometime in early 2011.

This is our 2nd day of E3 impressions. We talk about Nintendo’s Press Conference and the Big announcements they made. We also discuss what Sony brought to the table. Many great announcements were made and we not only recap but give our input on how we feel about what all was said.

E3 Day 1 Impressions

Spider-Man swings onto Broadway


This is an amusing video from the 2010 Tony Awards. Host Sean Hayes dressed up like Spider-Man and started singing. Then reveals Spider-man the Musical is coming to Broadway this season.

This may be news to some, but it was announced a while back. Music and lyrics are provided by U2’s own Bono and The Edge. It is also being Directed by Julie Taymor whose best known work would probably be Across the Universe which was the Movie/Musical that used music from The Beatles to tell its story. To find out more info you can check out the official Spider-Man on Broadway website.

I know as a Comic book Geek and a Drama Geek I am hoping this does well enough that they go on Tour like a variety of other Broadway Musical’s and Plays do. I also wonder what could be next. Hulk the Musical? Maybe even Dark Knight on Broadway? Time will only tell.

‘Wave’ Hello to the Xbox Kinect and goodbye to Natal

Today was the first day of the official Project Natal reveal event. But before a scary man with a red nose and green hair could tell the presses, the internet leaked that the name of Project Natal was not Wave but in fact Kinect. Seeing the name doesn’t make me think motion control, Kinect actually makes me think of the latest Microsoft mobile device the Kin. Upon hearing the name I get it more kinetic energy, which makes way more since. Rumors were that Kinect was just a regional name. Thevowel on Twitter, Eric Neustadter Xbox Live Operations Manager a.k.a ‘E’, confirmed the name wasn’t regional by saying “Wow! Congrats to everyone making Kinect happen. That was great! #XboxE3”

The Kinect was not the only thing announced, a slimmer Xbox 360. Leaking the slimmer xbox 360 was an ad that was probably released too early. The ad states that the new Xbox 360 has a 250 GB HDD and integrated Wi-Fi functionality, and compatibility with Kinect. This makes me wonder if my launch Xbox 360 is Kinect compatible, I sure hope so.


Some of the games that are rumored to release are Kinect Adventures (a river raft and obstacle course game), Kinectimals (no joke. It’s a game that allows a player to interact with a variety of cats, such as lions, cheetahs, and tigers), Kinect Sports (big surprise. No need to explain), Joy Ride (the cart racing game that was announced last year at E3), Ricochet (the dodgeball game at last years E3), Milo and Kate (also revealed at last years E3 as Peter Molyneux’s project), Fable III (we already know that one), and finally Brunswick Pro Bowling (my guess is that this might be a bowling type game).

Update: Two more rumored games are MTV Games-developed dance game called Dance Central (which might be the rumored Harmonix-tied Kinect title). A Disney-developed and a LucasArts Star Wars game are also in the works. We might get that Star Wars lightsaber game we’ve been waiting on since 2006.

Knight the Captain

Make it 'Sir' Number One

First thing to talk about is that today Patrick Stewart, the man himself, is now to be addressed as Sir Patrick Stewart. That’s right Queen Elizabeth II knighted him at the Buckingham Palace today. This 69-year old man paid tribute to his former teacher. “Although many people in my life have had great influence on me, without this man none of it would have happened,” he said. As a teacher myself, that just warms my innards.

Patrick Stewart now joins the list the Knighted. On that list you might find Sean Connery, Michael Caine, Christopher Lee, and Anthony Hopkins, just to name a few.
