StarCraft Remastered announced for Summer 2017 release

Activision Blizzard will be releasing a remastered version of the original StarCraft game this summer.

The release reportedly features:

  • updated and enhanced graphics
  • Battle.net support
  • cloud saves
  • widescreen support up to 4K resolution
  • localization in 13 languages

The campaign will include all of the missions from the original release and the expansion pack, Brood War. The video above shows that this really is a facelift of the original game and not just a shoehorning of the old story into the StarCraft 2 game engine.

If you missed out on StarCraft 2, a new Battle Chest version is being released on March 31 (just a few days away!) containing all 3 campaigns (Wings of Liberty, Heart of the Swarm, Legacy of the Void).

You can check out the press release for StarCraft Remastered after the jump.

Patrick Stewart announces retirement from X-Men franchise

Source: Patrick Stewart’s Twitter

Patrick Stewart has announced that Logan will be the last X-Men movie he will appear as Professor Charles Xavier.

EW.com reports that the actor made the announcement on an SiriusXM Radio Town Hall, in which he appeared with the director of the film James Mangold and Wolverine actor, Hugh Jackman, who has repeatedly said that this will be his last film for the franchise as well.

Stewart is quoted as saying:

“A week ago, Friday night in Berlin, the three of us sat, watching the movie,” said Stewart. “And I was so moved by it, much more moved than I had been the first time of seeing it. Maybe it was the company of these two guys, but the movie ended and — this is an admission — but at one point [Hugh] reached out, and he took my hand in those last few minutes, and I saw him go [mimes wiping a tear from his eye] like this, and then I realized I had just done the same thing. Then, the movie ended… and we were going to be taken up on stage, but not until the credits were over. So, we had some time to sit there and, as I sat there I realized there will never be a better, a more perfect, a more sensitive, emotional, and beautiful way of saying au revoir to Charles Xavier than this movie. So, I told [Hugh] that same evening, ‘I’m done too. It’s all over.’”

Toy Fair 2017: Tranformers Titans Return Trypticon

The centerpiece of Hasbro’s Titans Return display at this year’s Toy Fair was the newly revealed Titans Return Trypticon.
Trypticon won a fan poll last year for the next titan class Transformers figure against the likes of Scopronok and Omega Supreme. This was the first time the full prototype has been on display and lots of news surrounding it has come out.

  • Full Tilt, the smaller Transformer that came with the original Trypticon, is included.
  • Full Tilt has a Titan Master. The Titan Master’s name is Necro.
  • Necro appears to be based on Wipe Out, an obscure character that appeared with Trypticon at one point.
  • No Electronics (the choice was to include Full Tilt instead of electronics).
  • Base mode can connect to the other bases in the line.
  • Opening the mouth reveals a ‘throat’ which will funnel a Titan Master down to Trypticon’s chest compartment.

Unicron.com got a great video interview with Hasbro designer, John Warden.

Here are the official renders of the figure from Hasbro:

         



Logan trailer 2 released

The second trailer for Logan has been released (above). This film marks the last time Hugh Jackman will be playing the role of Logan/Wolverine for Fox Studio’s franchise of X-Men films.

In the near future, a weary Logan cares for an ailing Professor X in a hideout on the Mexican border. But Logan’s attempts to hide from the world and his legacy are up-ended when a young mutant arrives, being pursued by dark forces.

Logan will be released to theaters on March 3rd, 2017.



Four Horsemen Studios tease Mythic Legions 2.0 Kickstarter

Four Horsemen Studios has teased their fans with a video letting us know about a Kickstarter campaign for the next offering of Mythic Legions action figures. The Kickstarter is slated to start January 27th, 2017, titled Mythic Legions 2.0: Advent of Decay.

This Kickstarter will likely feature many of the figures we saw at SDCC 2016. That display can be seen below in a photo from ToyArk’s coverage. Notably, most of the figures in this display are female, which should help supplement the current all male line-up.

In addition, one of the Horsemen posted a picture on Facebook showing off the Mythic Legions Trolls in packaging next to a normal size figure. The Trolls are in their warehouse and being prepped for shipment.
