Marvel’s Iron Man Anime Trailer

Early I posted up about the Wolverine Anime Trailer and how different Wolverine looked from what we are used to seeing. Now I bring you the Iron Man Anime Trailer. Unlike the Wolverine Anime, Iron Man is instantly recognizable with his signature Red and Gold. The armor is Iron Man. Other than that though, we know nothing about what Tony Stark looks like but we do get a glimpse of the villains as well as someone who I assume as Pepper Potts.

I’ll say that Iron Man Anime looks much more impressive and exciting than the Wolverine trailer and I really like the whole style of it. I’m lookingforward to watching it when and if it ever comes out here.


Now For Something Completely Different: Wolverine Anime Trailer

This trailer depicts a Wolverine like we’ve never seen him before. In fact, looking at him, you wouldn’t even know he was Wolverine until his signature claws came out. This is a semi-old trailer for a Wolverine Anime which I’m assuming is a re-imagination of the character. All I can say is that I don’t really like it. The Wolverine shown here is just too much of a pretty boy to be Wolverine. Where’s the ruggedness and animal like features? I’m not so sure fans of the character would accept this at all.

7″ Augen GENTOUCH Android Tablet for $149.99

Kmart is advertising a Google Android OS 7″ Tablet from Augen which I have never heard of before. It’s called the GENTOUCH and is selling at Kmart for $149.99. There is very little information about this tablet as the Augen website does not have any info about it nor does the Kmart website. There are no specs listed and it is also not know which version of the Android OS this is running.

I’d really like to know if anyone has information about this because at a price of only $149.99, it might be a neat little toy to get just to be able to mess around with android and not have to buy an Android phone. According to the ad, the device is wifi enabled.

I may make a run to Kmart this week just to see what the GENTOUCH looks like in person and what the real specs and OS version are.

UPDATE: (Thanks Roebeet)

Augen has just updated their website with detailed information about the GENTOUCH 78. There is not a spec sheet along with some of the features of the GENTOUCH 78.

Product Features:

  • 800×480 color TFT touch panel screen
  • CPU: 800 Mhz
  • Ram: DDR2 256mb
  • Internal Memory: 2GB
  • Expansion Slots: SD/MMC card slot up to 16GB
  • Wi-Fi Connectivity with Full Web Browsing Capability
  • Supports Ebook Formats: Text, PDF, E-PUB, HTML
  • Supports Media Formats: MP3, WMA, FLAC, AAC
  • Supports most popular E-Book formats
  • Picture Viewer in JPEG, BMP
  • Video Player
  • Rechargeable Lithium Battery
  • Carrying case included

Accessories Included:

  • Leather Carrying Case
  • USB Cable (for data transfers only)
  • UL Certified AC Adapter

Now that we have more information about it, would you still get it? For $149.99, I don’t think its a bad deal whatsoever. The specs aren’t as impressive as the iPad or even the newest Android mobile phones, but what you get for $149.99 seems to be a decent tablet that is able to view websites, email, video, ebooks, pictures and be able to access the Android Marketplace. Also what’s great is that the device already include Android 2.1 which is a step ahead of most of these generic style Android tablets that only have 1.6 installed.

As you may have read i n the comments however. Kmart might not even have these in stock yet even though it is advertised in this week’s ad. I would either call ahead first so you don’t waste a trip.

We Have 5 Years Left to Make “Back To The Future” Tech a Reality

October 21st, 2015.  That is the date Dr. Emmett Brown takes Marty McFly to in the future. Back to the Future II was released into theaters 1989 and gave movie goers a fantastic view of what the future might hold for us and all the marvelous gadgets that we might see in the future.

It’s 2010 now and a lot of the gadgets and things we saw in Back to the Future II still do not exist yet. We still don’t have mass produced flying cars, hover conversions, Mr. Fusions, hoverboards, or jackets that self dry when wet. 3D tech however is gaining momentum however I’m not sure we’ll ever see 3D like they did in the movie with the Jaws scene. There were so many fantastic gadgets and tech in the movie that I’d really like to see invented. Here is my top 5 list of things I want to see in 2015. (List is not in any specific order.)

See my list after the jump.

Preview: Dead Nation – Baseball Stadium Showdown

Vodpod videos no longer available.

I’m a sucker for anything that involves zombies. If a movie has zombies in it, I’m watching it. If a game has zombies in it, you better believe I’m playing it, that’s why I’m really excited about the upcoming Dead Nation game for the Playstation 3. The game is dark and moody and really gives you the feeling of a true zombie outbreak. I would think of this game as a top down version of Left 4 Dead. The games is looking very good and makes some really good use of lighting effects and explosions. Sony is showing this game off right now at the San Diego Comic-Con so if you are there, go check it out.

Ice-T aka Griffen in Gears of War 3 Arrested and Released on BS Charges

I guess this sort of qualifies as gaming news since it involves Ice T who is the voice for Griffen in Epic Games upcoming Gears of War 3. I know this isn’t how it happened, but just picture Ice T in full Gears of War armor being arrested by a uniformed officer.

Earlier today, Ice T was arrested for supposedly driving with a suspended license and not wearing his seat belt while taking his dog to the vet. He was released 20 minutes later.

Ice T says the officer’s claims were all BS and posted up some really colorful tweets on his twitter account. The cop must have been bored if he had to arrest Ice T for not wearing his seat belt. Us normal folks usually just get a ticket or a warning. Read his account of the events after the jump as some are NSFW.
