WONDERCON 2015: Batman Unlimited Interviews Pt 2

The legend of Batman continues this week as Warner Bros. Animation releases Batman Unlimited: Animal Instinct on BluRay, DVD, and digitally everywhere. Although audiences may be more used to the darker and more intense Batman from Warner Bros. and DC’s usually straight-to-video releases, Batman Unlimited has lightened the tone for a larger family viewership, but is keeping all the action of Batman’s previous television stints. In this animated adventure the cape crusader faces off against a menagerie of DC’s most animalistic antagonists: The Penguin, Cheetah, and Silverback. This threat to Gotham is so huge that even the Dark Knight won’t be able to handle it by himself, so enter Nightwing, Red Robin, Green Arrow, and of course The Flash to help save the day!

While at this year’s WonderCon in Anaheim we got to catch up with the incredible voice talent of Roger Craig Smith (Batman), Yuri Lowenthral (Red Robin), Will Friedle (Nightwing) and writer Heath Corson to talk to them about DC’s latest animated feature and the return of Batman to the all-ages audience.

PG! parties at Press Start: Irvine 2015

On Sunday, fellow PG! writer and Pixel Clicks Podcaster Jordan Pollock and I were invited to the first ever Press Start LAN to see what it was like to go to a LAN party “on PCP.” Long story short: it was a blast.

Jordan and I were both expecting a rather small event, maybe a hundred or so LAN goers, but that was not the case at all. Held at the Bren Events Center at UC Irvine in our native Southern California, Press Start threw one hell of a party.

What You May Have Missed in the Star Wars: The Force Awakens Trailer

You’ve seen the trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens. If you’re anything like the Pixelated Geek staff, you’ve watched it twenty-plus times, paused it, squinted at the screen, and your mind is awash with a combination of wild glee and rampant speculation. There’s nothing better about being a geek than geeking out, and the Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer is the best excuse to do so in a long, long time.

WonderCon 2015 Dead Rising: Watchtower Roundtable with Tim Carter and Tomas Harlan

WonderCon 2015 has come and gone but that doesn’t mean the Comic Issues crew had all the fun! Dead Rising: Watchtower is a movie based on the wildly entertaining video game zombie survival franchise Dead Rising. The movie follows “ace” reporter Chase Carter (Jesse Metcalfe) as he tries to survive a zombie outbreak in a quarantine zone. Along the way he meets Crystal (Meghan Ory), a woman infected by the zombie virus who maintains her humanity through the use of a special medication. They are also joined by Maggie (Virginia Madsen), a mother who is on the brink of insanity. The trio band together and try to fight their way out of the dangerzone as Chase’s camerawoman, Jordan (Keegan Connor Tracy) tries to find a way to rescue them with the help of General Lyons (Dennis Haysbert). The movie contains twists and turns and is generally a delight to watch!
