The Terminator is Coming to WWE2K16

WWE Hall of Famer Arnold Schwarzenegger as the Terminator will be this year’s preorder bonus for WWE2k16, enabling everyone to finally fulfill their dream of putting Randy Orton against a killer robot from the future. He’ll be joining Alexia Bliss, Page, Dean Ambrose, Finn Balor, and Daniel Bryan as one of 120+ unique characters who will be in this year’s game. One superstar who won’t be a part of this year’s game is Terry Bolla, a.k.a Hulk Hogan due to the events of this past weekend. Stone Cold Steve Austin is this year’s cover athlete, and there are rumors that the game’s main mode will center around him and the attitude error. This will most likely mean that the game’s Showcase mode, introduced in WWE 2k15, will probably have a section centered around him. Of course this is all speculation, as more info on this year’s game, including it’s roster, will be revealed later on this year, usually around Summerslam. The game itself is scheduled to hit stores on October 27 of this year.

Lost Classics: Robocop vs Terminator (SNES)

robocopvsterminator

Along with Superman/Batman, Freddy vs Jason, and Alien vs Predator, Robocop vs Terminator was one of several movie mega-crossovers that were brainstormed during the 90s. Of those four, only AvP and FvJ ended up seeing movie releases while Robocop vs Terminator ended up being a comic book limited series. There were two games loosely based upon the comic, one for Sega, another for Super Nintendo. While the Sega version was known for its blood, the SNES version was known for it’s music and moody atmosphere.

If Paul W. S. Anderson or Damon Lindelof made a Terminator movie…

Even wonder what Paul W. S. Anderson, the infamous man behind the movies Mortal Kombat, Resident Evil and Dead or Alive would make for a Terminator movie? What about Lost show runner Damon Lindelof? Well wonder no further. No it’s not because they’re actually going to make such movies, but because the fine people at Wired Magazine asked each of them for a pitch for a new Terminator movie, and I’m sold on either!

Powet Alphabet: T is for Time Travel

Time is often referred to as the fourth dimension of the space-time continuum. Unlike the three dimensions of space that we keep trying (with varying degrees of success) to recreate in entertainment media, it is often likened to a straight line. The chagrin of would-be time travelers everywhere, it also appears to move in only one direction. General Relativity may allow for time to pass more quickly or slowly under certain conditions, but it always marches to the inexorable end.

But what if we could break “the arrow of time”, and turn it back on itself. What would that mean? How would it be done? And what would the consequences be?

Many geek interests have tackled this subject, and more than a few have seeped into the minds of the 18-35 general audience. Come on a time journey with us…

Powet Alphabet: J is for Judgment Day

Kyle and Derek Reese Judgment Day April 21st 2011 Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles

Since the alphabet is the building block of our language, the Powet Alphabet is the building block of what makes us geeks.

3 billion human lives ended on August 29th 1997. The survivors of the nuclear fire called the war Judgment Day. They lived only to face a new nightmare: the war against the machines.

Judgment Day is, simply put, the day the world really goes to hell in Terminator continuity.

A company named Cyberdyne Systems was tasked with building Skynet as part of a defense contract for SAC-NORAD, which is a fictional merging of the very real “Strategic Air Command” and “NORth American Aerospace Defense Command”. Skynet was a vast computer system which was tied in to all aspects of US defense. Skynet was brought online August 4th 1997. Things went well for about 25 days and then at 2:14am on that fateful day on August 29th 1997, it became self aware.

After the humans have a completely validated instinct to try to pull the plug, Skynet retaliated in a fierce way. Humanity’s fate was decided in a microsecond. Skynet, being the crafty AI that it is, attacks targets in Russia. Aren’t they our friends now? Well yeah, but Russia retaliates, destroying Skynet’s enemies in the US. Thus half the Earth’s population is destroyed.

Terminator Salvation for Free


So the Terminator franchise is on the auction block because Halcyon is on the verge of bankruptcy. I guess they figured, they’ll just give away the last movie for free.
Go to CinemaNow and enter promo code “TS201023” and after a short registration, they’ll give you a digital copy of the movie. Of course its DRM protected and will have to playback in a DivX player. Why would they let you have it free if you could share it with everybody?
If you’re willing to give them your email address and sit at your PC, go ahead and have a free movie.
