Plants Vs Zombies 2?

Found this image on PCGamer.com and not much else is said. This could be many things, but the popular rumor is a sequel to the popular tower defense game Plants vs Zombies. I do know a XBLA version is suppose to come out. Maybe that has something to do with it. Another rumor is it being released on Android(Yes,Please!). Almost a month away from the date. I know now I’m looking forward to August 2nd.

Johnny Depp as the Doctor?

The word on the web is Russell T. Davies is said to have written a script for a big budget movie for the hit BBC show Doctor Who that is set to release in 2012. Actor Johnny Depp has been cast as the role of The Doctor. With that said who is going to be his companion? Why couldn’t David Tennant have stared in it? So many questions that needs and hopefully will be answered soon.

I will not go into full length detail on this post. To find out more you can visit the source below, or stay tuned to our Doctor Who Season 5 episode of GeeksFTW! This episode will most likely be episode 15 so make sure you subscribe to us on iTunes,Zune, or RSS reader.

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.
