Here’s an oddity for you. A Korean MMORPG called Elsword is now featuring Robots in Disguise Bumblebee as a character who you can play as. The way it works is that the avatar in game can acquire a version of Bumblebee in car mode as a mount which they can ride about on – and even fight in car mode by ramming into targets and swiping them in handbrake turns. That’s not all, though, as you can also transform into Bumblebee’s robot mode to do more damage. It’s a weird thing right out of the left field, but it might » Continue Reading.

News - POOPING IS LOGICAL!
Posted by News Fetcher on July 30 '15 at 09:31 AM
By Gabe from Penny Arcade:
For some reason I have a bunch of writer friends. In fact now that I think about it, I probably know more writers than I do visual artists. I like writers because they always get very excited when they see drawings based on their stories. Taking the ideas they have in their heads and turning them into pictures is like a magic trick to many writers. Maybe that’s why I like them so much. When I hang out with writers I’m the best artist in the room!

Gary Whitta is one of these writer friends and a few months ago he came to me with an idea. He wanted to make a book for geek parents and their kids called Pooping is Logical. He asked if I’d help him out with some drawings. A potty-training book based on the tenets of Vulcan philosophy? Hell yeah I was interested!



Getting the Star Trek license is tricky though and Gary needs some help convincing the folks in charge that Pooping is Logical is a fun idea. Head over to his page for more details on the project and see what he has to say about getting the word out.

Here’s some of the sketches I did when I was working on the cover:

First Impressions: God Eater episodes 1-3
Posted by News Fetcher on July 30 '15 at 09:15 AM
By Josh Tolentino from Japanator:
I've said time and again that God Eater is one of the best - if not the best - attempt yet by competing publishers to take a sip out of Capcom's giant Monster Hunter milkshake. With God Eater, developer Shift and Bandai Namco managed to combine that tried-and-true fight-and-carve gameplay loop with a more contemporary sci-fi style alternative and a deeper narrative, making God Eater a viable alternative to the ruling franchise.

Unfortunately for the anime series adaptation of God Eater, the monsters in the world of television are much tougher competition.

We have the first in-package images of Black Knight Optimus Prime courtesy of site sponsor RobotKingdom and board member Type-R.  This figure is set to be released in Toys R Us stores across Japan on August 3rd. This recolor of Age of Extinction Armored Knight Optimus Prime is a Decepticon-inspired deco that features Nemesis Prime’s evil black, maroon and teal color scheme in place of Optimus’ heroic blue, red and silver. This figure, while lacking somewhat in engineering due to the simplicity of the design appears to more than make up for it with an absolutely killer deco. It does however feature » Continue Reading.

Thanks to artist Priscilla Tramontano’s webpage, we’ve got our first look at the cover art to IDW’s Windblade #6 issue. The cover, which is a stunning piece of art, features Windblade and Chromia with weapons in hand staring into the horizon as a beast creature flies off.  The big question is who is the beast creature?

Thanks to an Amazon listing, we have confirmation that Robots In Disguise (2015 version) will be making it’s way onto DVD this October! That’s the good news, the bad news is this DVD, titled A New Autobot Mission, looks to only include a few episodes rather than the full season (much like the DVD releases for the Rescue Bots). With a run time of 110 minutes, we are likely getting the first five episodes with no word on any bonus material included. This DVD will be released by Shout Factory, who has uploaded a Youtube trailer for the release as well (see » Continue Reading.

Thanks to the TF Yuki Twitter account, we’ve got a brand new in-hand image of the Takara Legends LG-14 Ultra Magnus! Seen pictured along side TAV21 Optimus Prime and TAV14 Ultra Magnus (Beast Hunters version), this Ultra Magnus will differ from Hasbro’s offering by including an Alpha Trion figure and a different color layout (slightly more accurate to some appearances in the More Than Meets The Eye comic). Takara’s Ultra Magnus is due out in September. Check it out after the break.

If you have ever wanted to beat up an anime character in locked one on one combat then maybe Dengeki Bunko Fighting Climax is the game for you. Dengeki Bunko is a publishing company in Japan that helps release light novels like Sword Art Online and Durarara!!. The game was released in Japan early last year and I had my doubts about a western release due it's niche appeal.

Sega is here to proved me wrong with a release of the first Dengeki Bunko Fighting Climax in US, Europe, and South America October 6th. A limited special launch edition will come with a physical soundtrack for the game with tracks from famous Sega composers Teruhiko Nakagawa (Sonic Advance 2) and Jun Senoue (Sonic Adventure 2). The pre-order and physical release of the game is confined to the US with Europeans receiving a digital only release.

The release of the first Dengeki Bunko will soon be outdated as a sequel has started to be rolled out in Japanese arcades with new characters and an Ignition system.

Dengeki Bunko Fighting Climax will be available on PS3 ($39.99) and PSVita ($29.99).
