People standing in line waiting for Star Wars Celebration's doors to open have plenty to look at. A Hot Wheels exhibit next to the line is a showcase of fan-made Star Wars vehicles. I talked with one of the car's owners, and it sounds like all of these rides are street legal, and driven frequently. Some of them even have astromech droids.
Why would you want a trunk when you can have an astromech droid instead?
When I was a kid, I always thought I would grow up to be a comic book artist or writer. From the moment I fell in love with the comic book medium, I had my own stories to tell. Some of my earliest work – which my parents still have tucked away in boxes under their stairs – focused on monsters and robots, strange stories that showed my admiration for science fiction.
Spoiler warning: If you haven't watch the trailer, you won't want to look at these fan-made shirts.
I probably shouldn't put such a strong focus on the act of finishing games, and should instead just focus on playing the games I want, for how long I want, but I'm addicted to the process, the drive, and the feeling of satisfaction that comes from adding another game to the list. Each year, I keep a running list of the games I complete, which includes a section for games I started but haven't finished, and another for games I need to play.
Hearthstone and Dragon Age hurt my efforts to finish as many games as I could in 2014.
When I flip through Game Informer's old issues, I often find myself thinking "I can't believe we did that," and "We could never write that today." One such example is buried on the last page of the August 2002 issue. The item of note is "The Gummi Crunch," a food concoction that blends two distinct flavors and textures.
A food prank led to a flood of hate mail.
Another year brings another list. If all goes as planned, I'll update this blog frequently, and won't finish until the new year arrives. The purpose of this document is twofold. First and foremost, I'm using it to chronicle all of the games I enjoy playing over the course of this year. The list I created last year helped me keep track of the games I still needed to get my hands on, and also reminded me what games I needed to bring up for Game Informer's Game of the Year voting.
The Walking Dead: Season 2, Skylanders: Trap Team, and Destiny join my growing list.
With the tagline "It ends here," Taken 3 is either going to end with the death of Bryan Mills (played by Liam Neeson), or with him going on a shin-kicking rampage. I've enjoyed this series immensely up to this point, and can't wait to see how it concludes. The first trailer released by 20th Century Fox outlines a much different plot for this installment. Mills is framed for murder and is on the run, evading the police while he tracks down the real killer.
The shin-kick master returns one last time.
This is a silly little thing, but it made me laugh and I thought I would share it with all of you. Jeff Goldblum was on Late Night with Seth Meyers recently, and took to the microphone to sing lyrics to the Jurassic Park theme.

I'll let the art speak for itself.
There's always been a great divide between the special effects seen in movies and television shows. With each passing year, that divide becomes less apparent. The new trailer for CW's upcoming Flash show doesn't shy away from showing the effects used to bring DC Comics' speedster to life. The speed effects look mighty impressive. I especially like how slow motion is handled.
