Power Rangers HyperForce is back with another episode of tabletop role-playing, presented by HyperRPG and Twitch. Not to be outdone by episode two's Halloween adventure, the Time Force recruits aren't done tangling with well-known monsters. In this installment, they ask: Whatever happened to Scorpina? The gold-encrusted supervillainess plagued the nightmares of the Teenagers With Attitude in the early 90s on Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, almost taking them out for good on some occasions, but then she just kinda... stopped showing up. As we ponder that question and more, the answers may await in the third episode of this new series. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9SKteabmi5M Power Rangers HyperForce streams live every Tuesday at 9PM PT from HyperRPG.   You might also like...

Update: Bandai Namco has released the trailer with official English-language subtitles. It can be found below. Our original post follows. It's climaxes all around, as Kamen Rider Climax Fighters gets an extended trailer detailing many of the action game's play mechanics, special features, and character dynamics.

This time, the heroes are facing each other, in an all-out brawl of epic proportions. And it's not just the lead heroes of each annual series that have shown up to the party.

As reported last week, Hyper RPG has begun its new streaming series Power Rangers Hyperforce, the live tabletop RPG show, courtesy of Twitch. Continuing with their releases of each episode recording, the show's second episode has dropped. And hopefully, you've still got a bit of the Halloween spirit left in you, because Hyperforce definitely does. The costumes are out in full force for this 2.5-hour episode, including a pretty spiffy samurai outfit for Power Rangers star Paul Schrier, whose list of credits in the franchise is as long as a Chrono Saber, not limited to Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, Power Rangers Zeo, Power Rangers Turbo, Power Rangers in Space, and of course, Power Rangers Samurai. In all that time, he's never quite known what it's like to be a Ranger himself, though...

‘Contra’ Video Game Adaptation: Guns VS Aliens On The Big Screen

‘Contra’ Video Game Adaptation: Guns VS Aliens On The Big Screen

Articles, Blog, Culture, Movies & TV, News, Uncategorized, Video Games, Video Update, Videos
In the late 1980s, Contra wore out the television sets of gamers the world over, as commandos Bill and Lance (the Schwarzenegger and Stallone of the video game universe) ripped through a landscape of deadly traps and weapons platforms designed to take them out before they could do the same to the enemy. Now, many years and several reincarnations later, the classic shoot-em-up is finally getting its time to shine (or something) on the big screen with a new film project, as well as a TV series. Like the non-stop actionfest that was the 1987 original, this adaptation is going all out. For better or for worse. Original game developer Konami joins forces with China's Starlight Media to bring the game to life. Many details remain a mystery, though CFI provides this brief synopsis: ...

Another beloved Japanese animated title is about to be adapted for American consumption, and so our watch begins. The track record of Hollywood in handling anime properties has not always been the steadiest. Recent efforts like this year's Ghost in the Shell failed to impress while some pray each day that the Akira adaptation never gets motivated enough to actually happen after years driving fans to drink. This is the atmosphere into which Sword Art Online enters. The novel and animated series about people trapped within a virtual reality, living out their lives in a fantasy world of swords and savagery, has built a passionate fanbase over the years, so it seemed inevitable that someone would eventually come knocking on its door. For better or for worse, we'd like to remain positive a...
