After seeing this deal on Amazon, I had to share it with the rest of the GoozerNation fans. While my cash is strapped at the moment, I hope to live vicariously through all of you! It has been announced that a ten disc, six movie collection containing the new Avengers movie as well as every Marvel movie containing heroes within the Avengers, will be released on Blu-Ray soon. More information, including official release date and what the collection entails outside of the movies themselves, will be released on July 15th. While it will retail for over $200, Amazon's got the set on preorder right now for around $150. If that's too rich for your blood, or you already own all the others, the basic Blu-Ray and DVD set of the Avengers are pre-orderable through Amazon as well. Even though this is a steep price, it is six movies compiling an epic quest by Hollywood for continuity among some amazing storylines. My biggest excitement in this is that it is titled "Phase One". What do comic nerds have to look forward to in the future...?
Regardless, you can click on the pic or here to go directly to the Amazon site for your pre-order. Don't miss out!
Everything seems cooler in space. Look at RD-D2—he is an extremely popular character, but he is pretty much a combination of a Garmin GPS, a welder robot and a movie projector. C-3PO is basically a British Siri. So, let's take a look at what your awesome SWTOR character would be if they lived in Kentucky, not Corellia?
Semper fi. The troopers don't have mystical powers, they just work hard and kick some ass. Fact: both Marines and Republic Troopers believe themselves to be better than the Coast Guard.
Smuggler: Drug Runner
Sorry. I know Han Solo makes being a smuggler look super glamorous, but in our world, it's not about rescuing princesses. It's about sneaking balloons filled with contraband across the border in any way possible.
Jedi Knight: Snake Handler
Seriously. Some guy in a brown robe comes up to you and tells you he has special powers from some kind of mystical force? Okay, crazy, you'd better get back to your bunker to wait for the End Times. Take your creepy pets with you.
Jedi Consular: Celebrity UN Goodwill Ambassadors
Think about it. Did anyone elect Jedi Consulars to power? Or did they just show up, all charismatic and glamorous in a fancy Jedi cloak, and try to influence Senators and governors that they had some kind of superior insight into the way the world works?
Bounty Hunter: Bounty Hunter
Yeah, we have bounty hunters in our universe. They're just not quite as cool as Star Wars bounty hunters. Can you imagine Boba Fett competing with Dog the Bounty Hunter to bring in bros who are behind on their child support? I can, and it's hilarious. I hope there is fan fiction of that somewhere.
Sith Warrior: Terrorist
No regard for conventional morality, only the desire for power. Still, they can be very charismatic and inspire men to follow them to their deaths.
Imperial Agent: Anonymous
Deep undercover, this collective has skillfully shut down the FBI and the DOJ websites, among others. They troll on 4chan in their spare time.
Sith Inquisitor: Guantanamo Bay Military Personnel
They have ways of getting the information they need. Like sleep deprivation and careful use of "stress positions."

Diablo III is the game so many gamers have been waiting for a long time. Twelve years after the release of Diablo II, gamers are graced with another of Blizzard’s masterpieces. Despite a few hiccups and missing features, the game is still fantastic, and a must have for any action-rpg fan.
Among the Sleep is a new survival horror game in development form Norwegian based Krillbite Studios. What makes this game so unique is that the entire game takes place in first-person from the perspective of a 2-year-old child!
One evening, after being put to sleep in your crib, “mysterious things” start to happen. It’s not long before you are on the floor crawling around the house investigating said phenomena. An in-game teaser video on the website shows shadowy figures lurking about and strange noises hovering in the air. It’s all really fascinating. The border between reality and fantasy will be mixed seamlessly; expect both physical and mental challenges.
The game will be available on PC/Mac sometime next year; I can’t wait to play it. You can get more information at the official website (including screenshots): http://www.krillbite.com/ats/

Indie Spotlight is a new article I hope to run on a regular basis. Every week or two I fire up a different little indie game (generally one in my Steam library that I’ve never played before) and give it a go! Is it good? Is it “meh”? We’ll find out together. This isn’t exactly a full-on review so I won’t go into too much depth.
Today’s spotlight is on Rochard – available on PS3 and Steam (PC/Mac). I played the PC version with an Xbox 360 controller on a 46” LCD television.
Rochard first caught my attention late last year with its side scrolling action and “portal” themed gameplay. I finally purchased the game a few days ago after hearing how wonderful it was and eagerly fired it up. First thing I noticed is that the lead character, Rochard, is voiced by the legendary Jon St. John (the voice of Duke Nukem). What’s cool about this (besides the fact that it’s Duke, himself) is that it doesn’t sound anything like Duke. Jon’s performance as a dry as dirt miner is spot-on with the character.
Rochard takes place on a mining asteroid somewhere in deep space. Things go wrong and before you know it you’re fighting for your life just to get off the rock with your crew. Early in the game you are given a gravity type gun that allows you to pick up and move object around the levels. This is where the fun begins.
Crates can be picked up and used as shields or tossed at enemies. Latches can be opened underneath enemies who drop to their death. Malfunctioning flying droids can be captured and fired like exploding projectiles. The list goes on and none of it grows tedious or repetitive before a new feature or upgrade is introduced.
Tossing into the mix is some really great level design with plenty of “kinks” to throw you out-of-whack. When the gravity malfunctions in one level, you’re left walking upside down on the ceiling. It’s trippy, fun and very cool! Rochard’s level design is very reminiscent of a Metroid/Castlevania game (or more recently Shadow Conspiracy on XBOX 360) full of little secrets and passageways.
Graphics-wise, Rochard looks like a Saturday morning cartoon with bright colors and clean over-mechanical environments. It’s all very pretty and never feels like a kid’s game. The visual and sound ques are great as well; in all, no complaints from me on its wonderful presentation.
I’ve logged in 2 hours into what is approximately a 6 hour game and so far Rochard is a fantastic little indie gem! If it weren’t for the fact that I had to write about it, I’d still be playing it right now (the curse of being a game writer). I highly recommend it!
Sony recently announced Vita sales numbers: 1.8 million as of March 2012. The 3DS has sold over 20 million. What does Sony need to do to reach its goal of 11 million sold by the end of the year? Well there are a few things Sony could do that would help meet this ambiguous goal.
The GoozerNation team breaks down which games they are playing this weekend. What are you playing? Sound off in the forum by leaving a comment below.
Erik Kubik - I guess since I finished Diablo III I should go back to Mass Effect 3. Maybe I’ll try to finish RDR Undead Nightmare. I think I might start Resistance 3. And if the stars align I’ll either pick up Starhawk or Max Payne 3.
Craig Will - Unfortunately a holiday weekend when moving from one apartment to another means little to no time for games. What time I do have will probably be spent playing Rage of Bahumut (still) on my phone, Disgaea 3 on my Vita, and Dragon’s Dogma on the 360.
Mark Del Rio - I just finished Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine on my PC. I might check out some multiplayer or just go for a few more ‘chevies. I also have 1 more achievement to get in Trine 2. I might give that a spin. Other than that I have no new game on my horizon. Time to dig into my backlog.
Ryan Johnson - Still plugging away through MGS3. I had a two-hour marathon session and finished The End and The Fury. I gave up on the “no kills” for this playthrough when The Fear kept eating to recharge, so I ended up having some memorable moments on The End, such as lobbing a grenade up on the ledge he was on from underneath after he chastised me, and dropping three shotgun shells into him point blank at a time. The sniping part was very fun, but when I let loose with my explosive and close-combat rounds, it became a whole new battle, and a lot of fun. The Fury went down as a stamina kill though. This weekend, I hope to get a couple hours on MGS, but also do some Phoenix Wright. I beat the first two games on WiiWare, and forgot I bought the third!
Jon Morris - In addition to playing “how many cheeseburgers can one man possibly eat in a weekend,” I’ll also be trying to get through Nightmare mode on Diablo III and will likely begin Hell mode. Like Erik, I hope to also jump back in and finish ME3 soon, and if things go well this weekend I may have the time to do it. I am also moving soon, so sometime in the next week my gear will have to spend a few days in boxes, but if time permits I will get those two things done and also throw in a smattering of Tribes: Ascend, which incidentally is giving out double XP from Friday until Tuesday morning. I’m still waiting for Spiral Games to make Orion: Dino Beatdown playable for me.
Michael Rohde - Last night I popped in Ghost Recon Future Soldier and played the first couple of missions. It was OK. Tom Clancy games just aren’t what they used to be. For this weekend, I’ll probably go back to Minecraft and some MW3 multiplayer. I’ll probably play a few more missions of Future Soldier.
Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon 2 came out in 2007. Ubisoft had 5 years to work on Future Soldier... and yeah, they made a pretty game and it’s a competent entry for games in general, but does it hold up to the Tom Clancy brand? Does the Tom Clancy brand even mean anything anymore? Sadly, the whole franchise is slipping down the drain.
Sometimes, it's neat to take a step back and really appreciate the little things in life that make a big difference. Take, for example, air. It's not like it's on your mind 24 hours a day, but it is utilized by you constantly. How does it hold the oxygen we need? How does it refresh through plant life? There are many other questions that can be asked of air, and education can prove to answer most all of those mysteries.
Today, I'm discussing the life staple of video games: boxes. In the form of pixels, they give us the graphics we need to thrive. But built together into in-game boxes, they provide just as much life saving need as they do mystery and intrigue.
Somewhere someone is laughing. Why? Well, Star Wars Kinect came out recently and it received average reviews. But for some reason this game has been selling like crazy, and the question is why?
The biggest question to be asked about the video game Game of Thrones is, does one need to be a fan of the show to understand what’s going on? The answer is, No, not really. Other questions include, does the game live up to the amazing TV show? Who is the game marketed at? Is it worth a gamer’s time to pick the game up right now? Continue on for the answers and more.
Even though the last Disgaea game that I played was on the PS2 almost 6 years ago I found myself getting excited for Nippon’s latest offering on the PSV - Disgaea 3: Absence of Detention, which is more than just a port of Absence of Justice on PS3. While I don’t remember many of the specifics I did have memories of strategic combat, humorous dialogue and ridiculous character stats come rushing back to me as I popped D3 into my Vita.
