This week it’s all about The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug. Here’s a little Tolkien trivia for you. Did you know that Wikipedia describes Smaug as a “fictional dragon”? This can only mean that dragons are real! Holy shit! It must be true if it’s on Wikipedia.
How are we just now finding this out? I’ve spent my whole life wearing seatbelts and condoms… and why? Why would I do that when a dragon could just appear out of nowhere and “desolate” me? My entire life has been a lie. I’m canceling my 401K and cashing out my kids’ college fund. There are DRAGONS!!!1!!1!
Oh, and we also have a box office report and a video recovery. But chances are a dragon will have killed you before we get that far.
It’s Reel Spoilers #25 – The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug.
You’ve been warned… about dragons!
Telltale took the VGX by surprise last week by announcing multiple projects.
Telltale will be working with Gearbox Software to produce an adventure game based in the Borderlands universe titled, Tales from the Borderlands. The partnership with Gearbox will see a story set within Borderlands’ lush, violent and fun world. We’ll also see the return of Handsome Jack, it seems. Which is good, because he’s easily one of the most entertaining characters the series has offered.

Can the WWE end the year on a good note? In what has been an otherwise crappy year for wrestling, will fans finally get a pay-per-view worth paying for? I am skeptical, to say the least. With Christmas being just weeks away, here is a Christmas wish list from a diehard wrestling fan.
I am all for unifying the titles. Smackdown is super boring. I rarely watch it live to avoid falling asleep. So, I am happy that I am supposedly getting this first gift. However, I’m not sure I like the way it’s going down. First of all, tonight’s TLC show will mark the WWE’s final PPV of 2013. That’s probably a good thing, given the list of turds the company has put out the last few months. Maybe it’s an early Christmas present to wrestling fans or perhaps it’s because WWE needs the ratings, but for better or worse, we are getting a title unification match.
Here’s my problem with what the WWE is trying to sell tonight.
The demo showcases some of the sweet things we’ll see which are only possible on a PC or next-gen hardware. Things like dynamic weather, volumetric lighting and procedural destruction litter the trailer in the form of delicious eye candy.
At this point in the game, Respawn doesn’t need to do much else to convince people that its new game Titanfall will be THE game to get in March. That doesn’t stop them though, during the VGX Repawn’s very own Abbie Heppe and Vince Zampella took the stage to announce two new Titans.
The first of the two came in the form of a slick promotional video by Hammond Robotics (a fictional company that makes Titans within the Titanfall universe). The new Titan deemed the “Ogre” gets its name due to its gorilla-like stance and formidable armor and sluggish, but heavy movements. It’s being billed as a much harder to take down Titan at the cost of mobility.
