This One Time, On The Internet- February 27, 2014

Teenage-Mutant-Ninja-Turtles

Here are the quick hits in the world of movies, TV, games, fax machines, car parts, whatever catches our fancy.

Movies

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

The first trailer for the Michael Bay-produced (shudder) movie will debut with Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Get your judgmental hats ready. What if it looks good? Is the world ready?

Gravity

I re-watched Gravity last night. Still amazing. How about this Van Damme epic split in space? I love the internet.

Masters of the Universe

Three directors are in the running to bring He-Man to the big screen. Chris McKay (editor, The LEGO Movie), Mike Cahill (Another Earth) and Harald Zwart (The Karate Kid) are the three who are trying to get hired to flounder about through multiple scripts and rewrites before giving up. This is the story of the Masters of the Universe movie for the past decade.

Harry Potter

I never knew Sirius’ death affected Harry so much that he would turn into him.

TV

Late Night with Seth Meyers

How much weird shit goes on in Florida? Enough that Seth Meyers has a game show called Fake or Florida. It’s only a matter of time before one of the stories involves Will Muschamp.

Marvel

A one-hour special called Marvel: Assembling a Universe will air on March 18th and show off footage from Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Avengers: Age of Ultron. Trying to build up that S.H.I.E.L.D. audience however they can. Have I given up on A.O.S. yet? My head says no, but the nine episodes sitting on my DVR says yes.

Game of Thrones

We showed you the character posters the other day, now here is a new one for the fourth season.

Games

The Walking Dead

Episode 2 of Season 2 will release on March 4th. If it is anything like Episode 1, I think the makers are having too much fun being masochistic to Clementine. Here’s a trailer.

Playstation Plus

Tomb Raider, Thomas Was Alone, Lone Survivor and more are free on PS Plus in March. Why does every Playstation owner not buy Plus?

Wolfenstein: The New Order

The new Nazi-killing adventure will run at 60fps and in 1080P on both PS4 and Xbox One, so you frame rate elitists can shut the fuck up.

Nintendo

On May 20th, Nintendo will shut down online services for the Wii and 3DS. Online play, matchmaking, Wii Shop Channel, basically anything having to deal with online besides Netflix will cease to be.

    I feel like that Nintendo news deserves it’s own article, maybe? That’s HUGE.

    Um… “Online play for Wii U and 3DS games is unaffected (outside of the Wii mode on Wii U and DS games played on 3DS). Other online functionality, including access to the Wii Shop Channel, the Nintendo DSi Shop, and video-on-demand services like Hulu and Netflix, is also not affected.”
