Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen may have been an OK movie but it certainly wasn't up to Michael Bay's standards. He says that the writing was most of the problem, which is pretty obvious. He attributes this to the Writers Guild strike that affected film and TV, saying,
I'll take some of the criticism. It was very hard to put (the sequel) together that quickly after the writers' strike (of 2007-08).
He promises that the next film will not succumb to the same problem.
Lately we have been bringing you a lot of news about The Avengers but even for the past several years, the comic book film adaptations we've seen have been mostly dominated by Marvel, with the exception of Batman, Superman, and The Watchmen. DC fans, don't feel left in the dark just yet however. Warner Bros has faith in the upcoming Green Lantern movie starring Ryan Reynolds which is set to release June 17th, 2011.
In fact, Greg Berlanti, Michael Green, and Marc Guggenheim will be writing the already scheduled sequel to Green Lantern and have also been approached to work on The Flash. With the new Batman and Superman movies not scheduled until 2012 DC will be really counting on Green Lantern to keep things going for them and if it is a success there might be a possibility for some DC crossover in the future, maybe something along the lines of The Justice League?

We here at the show absolutely love the Left 4 Dead series. Scott seems to enjoy the first game for different reasons than I enjoy the sequel, but we can both agree on the fact that both games do certain things extremely well while lacking in other areas. Still, there are lots of people who will play the original game for the fact that they love the simplicity of the gameplay.
Because of that, a group of developers - the same group that created Portal: Prelude - have released another, all-new campaign for Left 4 Dead called "I Hate Mountains". The best part of it all? It's free for any owner of the PC version of the game.

June 11th marked the beginning of an event bigger than the Olympics, I mean the good Olympics, not the winter ones. The World Cup 2010 South Africa kicked off with 2 match ups between Mexico vs. South Africa, and France vs. Uruguay. Even though the games were heavily televised around the world the Internet wasn't taking the day off by any means. Starting at 6 a.m. ET traffic started increasing heavily for news sites and peaked at 12 a.m. ET with 12,078,868 visitors per minute according to measurements taken by Akamai. This breaks the previous record set on November 4th, 2008 when Barack Obama won the presidential election which registered 8,572,042 visitors per minute at its peak. At 5 p.m. ET traffic was still 130% above normal at 6.5 million visitors per minute. Looks like it's going to be a long and heavy flow this month for the Internet.
Saturday night we had the privilege to get a sneak peek of trailers that are going to be presented this year at E3. Ranging from the PS3 exclusive Killzone 3 to Bethesda's newest addition to the Fallout Universe, Fallout: New Vegas. We also got a small sneak peek of the game I've been following religiously... that's right Star Wars: The Old Republic. Unfortunately we got to hear a little bit about how Blur (the company who made last years trailer) goes about creating epic Star Wars scenes and a reveal that this years trailer will involve Princess Leia's home planet Alderaan. Another Star Wars related reveal was a new Star Wars: The Force Unleashed 2 trailer. I won't give away anything but I will say that it was awesome.
That isn't all we got to see however. We also got to take a look at some of the booths that will be at this years convention, and needless to say the booths are enough reason to follow the coverage of E3. The booths Warner Brothers have in store for E3 are awe-inspiring to say the least. Their Batman Arkham Asylum 2 makes you feel like you have been committed into Arkham. The Xbox 360 booth looks just as you would imagine: full of green circles, lots of white and... purple? Looks like Xbox is upgrading their pallets.
Hit the break for more previews of our upcoming E3 2010 coverage!
