Cosplay at the 2016 Gold Coast Supanova

I love cosplay, it lets ordinary people become extraordinary characters. When it came to the extraordinary, the 2016 Gold Coast Supanova did not disappoint. What I can only imagine to be hundreds if not thousands of man hours being spent creating some of the most jaw-dropping, mind-shattering costumes, just to become their favourite hero, heroine, villain or villainess for a few hours. It would seem as if the cosplay flavours of the month are Harley Quin, Deadpool and Kylo Ren. There were plenty of these popular characters to be found walking around the isles, browsing at comics or looking at...

God of War 4 information leaked?

Concept artwork purportedly from upcoming PS4 game God of War 4 has been leaked, showing an unshaven, axe wielding Kratos. NerdLeaks, the website that uncovered the images, is now suspiciously offline, (Sony’s banhammer appears to be strong) however the concept art has already been archived on NeoGaf.

New One Piece: Burning Blood Trailer

The trailer for One Piece: Burning Blood is here and it has landed severely in ‘What the Fuck?’ territory. The trailer is in Japanese, which just adds to the level of confusion, and opens with 2 grown men hitting each other with a piece of 2×4 in some sort of weird Japanese gameshow like scenario. It then goes on to show gameplay from the actual game. We see Marco, Drake, Chopper, Sengoku and Kizaru (along with others) battling it out in what will be a 1 on 1, 3v3 battle arena type game. The game releases in the west on May 31st for...
