I love Superman, which is why an announcement of a DC animated film retelling one of my favorite stories, Superman: Brainiac by Geoff Johns, filled me with excitement. Today, the Nerdist posted a trailer for the new film titled Superman: Unbound. After watching it, I’m super excited (pun intended)! Given the high quality of DC’s animated line and the strength of the source material I’ve got high hopes for this direct-to-DVD movie. Check out the trailer below and let me know your thoughts!

Hawkeye is currently the only Marvel series I read consistently. Why? It’s frickin’ amazing! Since the first issue I’ve been hooked and excitedly crack open this book first each week its released. This time, we’re treated to a special issue focusing on both Hawkeyes (Clint and Kate) experiencing the effects of Hurricane Sandy. As someone who both lived through the hurricane, had many friends and family affected by it, and worked afterwards to help restore a local Connecticut town to normalcy, I felt this issue couldn’t be missed. Read on to find out what makes this comic special!

Here at Moarpowah we try to be on top of our schedules. As to be expected from a site the regards video games as a cornerstone of the “nerd three” (video games, anime, and comics), it’s important we discuss what will grace our gaming palettes, both in terms of expectations as well as what we already know.

I for one have been trying my best to expand my gaming literacy in the past few years, which has entailed playing lots of different games from all sorts of genres. It’s forced me to avoid soul-suckers like World of Warcraft and League of Legends in order to maintain variety, even if it means missing out on some of the most defining game experiences to be had this decade. A few games I’ll play this year will likely leave me hooked for more hours than I care to think about, and I’m sure to lose some much needed productivity. But I’m trying to stick with games that have a clear beginning and end, while only occasionally sinking some time into the always entertaining Sins of a Solar Empire or even Roller Coaster Tycoon, if I just up and decide to one day.

Regardless, here are some of the most interesting titles that will see releases in the near future. Most of these I will end up playing. Some may lose their grip on me before they come out and avoid my hard-earned money, and others will join the list, but as of right now, these are the games to look forward to in my perspective (in no particular order).

Ranking #2 on my top 12 anime of 2012, it was really only a matter of time ’till I reviewed this season. I already have a review for Jormungand, where I praised the first season quite profusely. Jormungand Perfect Order aired from October 10 to December 26, 2012.  For this second season, things really hit the fan in Jormungand. Instead of being a series of interconnected stories, a more cohesive plot emerged. A lot of characters received some major development, and over all it felt like a bigger experience to be a part of. But not everything was roses and sunshine in Perfect Order.

It’s always a sad day when anyone in the industry announces they’re closing shop. It’s an especially sad day when that happens to a large publisher like THQ, who have a number of properties and studios beloved by gamers everywhere, including some classics. With THQ filing a Chapter 11 bankruptcy, all hopes were placed on life continuing almost as usual, with THQ finding a larger parent to buy them out. Unfortunately, as is the case with all bankruptcies, creditors and investors want to be reimbursed, so THQ effectively got gutted.

So what happened to the properties? Who made off like bandits, and who got left to bleed out in the harsh sun?
