GAME OF THRONES Star Maisie Williams Does a Fantastic CORALINE Cosplay

Maisie Williams is an adored actress who is probably best known for her role as Arya Stark in Game of Thrones. She is very talented and one of the reasons my wife and I are excited to see The New Mutants as well. To add to her talented acting, it appears she’s a pretty good cosplayer. When Williams wasn’t at the Golden Globes, she posted a photo of herself to Instagram dressed up as Coraline Jones from Neil Gaiman’s book and movie Coraline. Coraline is pretty creepy so I don't know that I would recommend young children watching it, but it is a good movie with solid characters and Williams’ costume is spot on. The yellow jacket, the blue hair, everything is perfect. She even has her best friend Wyborn “Wybie” Lovat in Oliver Jackson who also has a fantastic costume. Thankfully, they do not appear to have button eyes so I think everyone’s safe. What’s your favorite cosplay a celebrity has done?

I could not attend the golden globes this year. Instead, I took this weekend as an opportunity to fulfil all my hopes and dreams by dressing up as my idol, Coraline. Don't @ me #coralineandwybie #DONTEVENTHINKABOUTGOINGOUTSIDECORALINEJONES

If You Don’t Sleep, This Is What Happens To Your Body

If you don't sleep, bad things happen to your body. Most of us already know that, but I would gamble a majority of you just don't know how harmful not sleeping can be. Luckily the internet is chock full of people who are experts on these sorts of things and they can lay out exactly how bad it is. Check it out below, unless you're about to sleep as it might stress you out and cause you not to sleep. 

Nirvana’s “Smells Like Teen Spirit” Becomes a Summer Pop Song in a Major Key

Going from a minor key to a major key can cause a song to feel the exact opposite of how it was written. Just listen to "The Imperial March" in a major key as an example. It no longer sounds ominous and of impending doom. Well, Sleep Good is a psychedelic pop band who has decided to mess with a classic grunge song. “Smells Like Teen Spirit” is the most famous song by Nirvana, and probably the most famous song from the grunge era. Kurt Cobain’s voice and simple guitar part are a perfect pair. When you listen to the song, it’s very angry and angsty. When you listen to Sleep Good’s version “Teen Sprite,” that all goes away and it sounds like a pop hit that could be a cousin to Hanson’s “MMMBop.” It’s scary what you can do when transposing music. Although with lyrics, this transposition creates a new level of irony as the counter-culture song is sung to a happy instrumental track instead of the dark angsty tone of the original. I still prefer the original, but it’s fun to see what the Internet will do. Which version is your favorite?

AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR Fuses with DRAGON BALL for Epic Trailer

I love geeks on the Internet. You guys can be some of the most creative people I’ve seen. There have been so many awesome fan-made mash-up trailers for Avengers: Infinity War that you’d think it gets old after the first one or two. It doesn’t. We’ve seen an animated trailer, a retro trailer, and an anime trailer featuring dozens of anime. Now we have an anime trailer that is exclusively Dragon Ball characters. The trailer was made by Dizzle Shizzle and most, if not all, of the footage, appears to be from Dragon Ball Super and this trailer is just as amazing as the others. Goku Black seems to be our Thanos, Vegeta is Thor, and Beerus is Black Panther. I love these trailers, so please keep them coming. What’s your favorite fan-made trailer mash-up?

Make Your Baby The Next Boba Fett With This Sarlaac Pit Lounger

Are you disappointed your child isn't one of the best bounty hunters in the galaxy? Then why not toughen he/she up a bit with this Sarlaac Pit baby lounger! No, this is not a joke, this is something you can purchase for your baby. Granted the price is a bit steep at $138 American, but the awkwardness in trying to explain to people your child is not sitting in a spiky butthole is priceless. Would you buy this item? Thanks Geekologie for the heads up.

This Guy Tastes Water That is 2 Million Years Old

The guys over at the Waterjet Channel on YouTube recently found an enhydro agate that was roughly 2 million years old and it had some water trapped inside. So, what do they do with it? They decide to break it open and have one of their members, Mitchell, taste the 2-million-year-old water. One of the dangers here is that there's no guarantee the water from the agate is safe to drink. In fact, the guys over at Boing Boing point out, "...enhydro agates rarely contain pure water. They often also contain quartz microcrystals, debris, or petroleum, depending on the conditions under which they were formed." The team also gathers culture swabs of Mitchell’s tongue, the rock water, and a gas pump that Mitchell had licked in a previous episode to compare after a week. You can see the results in the video below, but I have to say, that is a beautiful rock. What’s the oldest thing you’ve ever licked?

Kid Has Mom Confront Him About Porn While Streaming Games

An older video is making rounds around Reddit this morning in what has to be one of the most painful moments of a kid's life. A kid is streaming on Twitch when his mother bursts in asking him why he's looking at porn and things go off the rails. Four minutes later the kid is threatening to call child support after getting popped in the back of the head. Honestly, this might be the best form of birth control I've ever heard because I don't even know what I would do if this is my life. Good thing it isn't, and I can laugh about it along with the rest of you because this video is pretty damn hilarious. 

Check Out this Indian Take on Disney Princesses

I know many girls who have dressed up as Disney Princesses. I have never seen this take on them though. Instagram model Hamel Patel has combined her love for Disney Princess with her family’s heritage. On her Instagram she stated:

I finally get to show you guys the series I’ve been working on! 🙈 Growing up I always wished there was a Disney Princess I could relate to, one that represented where I came from. So I came up with this idea many months ago and I’m so happy how they turned out! Introducing outfits/makeup looks inspired by the eight original Disney Princesses we all grew up watching, with a little desi twist!

I think these are phenomenal. I know at first glance I couldn’t see who a couple of them were, but when I took more than 2 seconds to look, everything became clear. These are masterpieces and I wish more people would do similar things. I would love to see more Disney Princess inspired photos that mix in some more traditional outfits from all over the world. That would be something incredible. Which of Patel’s outfits is your favorite?

MONSTER HUNTER: WORLD Producer Shares Why The Game Is Delayed On The PC

monster-hunter-2.jpg

Capcom’s upcoming game, Monster Hunter: World is only two weeks away from it's release on the PS4, and Xbox One. The game will also come to the PC but will be delayed with Capcom aiming for a release in autumn of this year. 

The producer for the game, Ryozo Tsujimoto, quickly responded with an explanation as to why Capcom is delaying the release of Monster Hunter: World for the PC. In an interview with GamesRadar, via PC Gamer, Tsujimoto said that the main reason why the PC is getting a delayed release is because Monster Hunter: Worlds will be the first PC game to come to Capcom's Monster Hunter franchise.

“For the main Monster Hunter game, this is our first PC title and it’s something we want to make sure we get right,” Tsujimoto said in the interview. “So rather than having it taking up resources during the console development and not it being able to have our full attention on it. We want to get console out of the door and we’re going to take some extra time and try and get the PC version as good as possible.”

Furthermore, Tsujimoto explained in the interview that bringing the title to PC would entail extra work for the team. 

“There’s extra work you need for PC as well. On console you use first party matchmaking, you just kind of plug into it, whether it’s PSN or Xbox Live, but on PC we’re going to have to work more to get our own matchmaking working. So, hopefully, PC users won’t mind waiting a little bit longer for us to bring you a really great optimised PC experience.”

The team’s reason behind the delay of the development of the game for the PC release is definitely understandable. I would rather have a game that is delayed a few months but works well with the platform rather than having a poor version of Monster Hunter: Worlds on the PC at the same time as consoles. 

Monster Hunter Worlds is set to release on January 26 for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, with the PC version following by the end of the year.

Top 5 Games That Need To Be Remastered

With the variety of games launching and being remastered, it just feels like a few top named games are being overlooked. As much as I enjoy having the first Resident Evil on every platform possible and venturing through Rapture in the Bioshock series, I would like to mention a top few titles that I think deserve a remaster and should be brought to the latest generation of consoles.

1) Metal Gear Solid 1 through 3

download (1).jpg

The first game that comes to mind is the one that filled up majority of my gaming experience on the PS1 and PS2. Metal Gear Solid is one of the most iconic games out there and became incredibly popular with the launch of Metal Gear Solid V. The first three games of this series was the absolute best though, but are restricted to only those who have the previous generation consoles to play them.

I would love to go back to Shadow Moses and infiltrate the facility as Solid Snake on the mission that brought this series to my attention in the first place. It was a ton of fun back then and could only be better with a proper remake. The same could be said for playing as Raiden in Metal Gear Solid 2 and the original Big Boss in Metal Gear Solid 3. This series was a big part of my childhood and I am sure many others. Its time that this series gets remade. Lets hope this becomes the focus once Konami is done with Metal Gear Survive.

2) Socom 1 through 3

Socom.jpg

Next up is the game that once competed with the Call of Duty series. Socom is known to many as the best military story mode game series out there should be enough to make it on this list. We all know that there is going to be plenty more Call of Duty titles to come, but the fans of Socom are being left behind in the old generations. It was an easy choice to add this to the list because it is long overdue for Socom to launch again, even if it isn't a new game and only the classics remastered. Let's see this happen!

3) Dino Crisis 1 and 2

One of the most popular game series from the early Playstation days in the survival horror category is Dino Crisis. It is upsetting to know that this game series has gotten no love in the past years and it completely deserves a remaster! Could you imagine running into half of the crazy scary dinosaur creatures that you encountered in that game with todays graphics? Would make for the perfect game to be remastered for all our survival horror fans out there. The good news here is that there are rumors of this being a possibility! Fingers crossed everyone.

4) Resident Evil 1 through 3

The series that only seems to think the first one is worth remastering. Resident Evil's entire series from the Playstation one should be remastered instead of just the first one. The first instance to play as Leon and our encounter with Nemesis itself are all the reasons I need to add this series to the list. We got the first one on the PS4 already, so lets see the next two make their way over with an awesome remaster that also gives the option to play without tank controls.

5) Resistance 1 through 3

Ending the series on the game series that started off the PS3 days. Resistance is one of my favorite game series that gives you the freedom to go around an apocalyptic world and fight off hordes of aliens with a widespread variety of styles and skills. It also had one of the best multiplayer set ups in its day that would be a ton of fun to revisit. Not to mention that I would love to see what a Bullseye gun would look like with graphics available today.

Honorable Mention: Silent Hill 1 through 4

download (4).jpg

This entire series from the PS1 and PS2 were incredible games with the most twisted stories. I would love to visit Silent Hill again with clearer graphics that really let us experience what it would be like to come face to face with all the different creatures inside of these games. It didn't make it on the top 5 list, but I couldn't finish off a Remastered games list without this iconic game series.

That makes up my list of games that I would like to see remastered soon. Do you agree with my list? What game series do you hope to see remastered?
