EXCLUSIVE: Good news for Arrested Development fans. The new season of the cult Mitch Hurwitz comedy commissioned by Netflix will be larger than originally planned. I’ve learned that, during production on the 10 new episodes ordered by Netflix, Hurwitz shot more material than planned and also came up with ideas for additional scenes and storylines. Hurwitz, producing studio 20th Century Fox TV and Imagine TV approached Netflix, which agreed to expand the order to what I hear will be 12-15 episodes.

The Hard Truths Behind Dan Harmon's Community Ousting | Vulture

popculturebrain:

Joe Adalian addresses more questions re: this thing we can’t stop talking about. I found this very hopeful…

Will Sony’s firing of Harmon impact his ability to find a new home in Hollywood?
We hope not. Even before last week’s unpleasantness went down, Adult Swim announced it was developing a new show with Harmon. And Vulture has heard that Harmon’s agents have already been fielding numerous calls from other networks and even some film studios about taking meetings with Harmon. We’ve also corresponded with network development execs who’ve indicated that they’ve heard the “stories” about Harmon and aren’t deterred: They want to talk about getting into business with him.

Sony Reveals New Fighting Game, Looks A Lot Like Super Smash Bros

Yep. Sony is planning to launch a first-party fighting game on the PS3 that will put all your favourite PlayStation characters fight each other. The game will be called PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale. It will also feature some third-party mascots as well.

The game was revealed on GTTV, who also have some gameplay footage (see video above). Totally not a Smash Bros rip-off, guys. PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale will be making its way to the PS3 this holiday season.

Looks like someone was tardy for the party

Geoff should have just said “so it’s Super Smash Bros, but Sony.”

Still, if it’s fun and has some unique twists, I won’t mind terribly that it’s a shameless clone.

Peter Goodspeed: Dying as a political act: Centuries-old Buddhist tradition of self-immolation continues in China

“This was not the random act of a disturbed individual, but rather a single manifestation of a deeply rooted set of ideas and ideals in Chinese Buddhism that blossomed again and again in the history of pre-modern China.”

Akira Yuki of Virtua Fighter to appear in Dead Or Alive 5

The trailer demonstrates a few of his abilities (pretty much taken straight from Virtua Fighter 5) and a lot of the different environmental effects from the upcoming game (such as dirty clothes when landing on the ground, etc.) The game still has no known release date.

THIS is how you do a cameo appearance

Oh fuck yes. I was just wondering recently if Sega was planning on releasing a new Virtua Fighter once the next gen consoles drop.

“Ghost In The Shell” Reeboks Coming Next Summer

Megahouse is going to offer 500 pairs of Reebok sneakers inspired by the Tachikoma mecha in Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex.

The shoes are basically Reebok’s high-tech Pump Fury sneakers recolored to match the Tachikoma’s shade of blue. The pump buttons are meant to resemble the mech’s eyes, and the material of the sneaker’s glossiness will change depending on the angle it’s looked at in an effort to recreate the mech’s special camouflage.

Of course, you’ll also find the heel of the sneaker labeled with the Public Security Section 9 emblem. Megahouse will sell the sneakers worldwide June or July 2012 for approximately $260.

Tony Hale talks Lucille 2 and hopes for an iPad hand

thebluthcompany:

First and foremost, Hale made sure to give credit to “the fans that have kept the show alive. We have the fans to thank for it coming back. Their support is really what has kept the engine going, so that’s the foundation of it all.”

Though details of the Bluth-Fünke reunion haven’t been set in stone, Hale assured that there would be plenty of surprises up creator Mitch Hurwitz’s sleeve. “The big thing about the show was that every week we were surprised,” he said. “You never knew which direction it was going to go.” With this new phase of Development finally reached, Hale said, “I’m most excited about seeing what Mitch is stirring up — where he’s going to take these people, what has happened in the past five years of their lives?”

What would be on Hale’s wish list for Buster? “Hopefully he has not left his mother’s side,” he said. Also, “I’d love for Liza Minnelli to come back. I’d love for Buster to see his girlfriend again.” Hale also would like to see Buster keep up with the times in addressing his missing hand. “I want him to go bionic,” he said. “Maybe he connected with Apple, and there’s some sort of iPod attachment. Maybe he’s got like an iPad as a hand? … Surely, with the advances of technology, something interesting has happened.”

Since more than half a decade passed since he last stepped into Buster’s khakis, Hale plans to take a trip down Memory Lane with his own Arrested marathon. What moment is he most excited about seeing again? “When Buster went off on his mother in a cuss fest,” he laughed. “[There was] so much pent-up anger… and that was his opportunity to let it rip.”

PETA Blasts Nintendo Over Mario’s Tanuki Suit
People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals is now blasting Nintendo over Mario’s use of the Tanuki suit. To go with their “Mario Kills Tanooki” campaign, the group has also released a flash game titled Super Tanooki Skin 2D.

“Tanukis are real-life raccoon dogs who are beaten and, as PETA’s undercover exposés show, often skinned alive for their fur. This winter, everyone can give raccoon dogs and other fabulous animals a 1-Up by keeping our wardrobes fur-free.” —Tracy Reiman, executive vice president of PETA

If you wanna check the game out, just head on over to PETA’s website. PETA had this to say about the release of the game:

“Tanooki may be just a ‘suit’ in Mario games, but by wearing the skin of an animal, Mario is sending the message that it’s OK to wear fur. We created our game to help inform people that in real life, Mario would be wearing the skin of an animal who was beaten, strangled or electrocuted, and it wouldn’t give him any special powers other than the power of self-deception,”

(via: Game Informer)

TRYING.
TOO.
HARD. 
And where were they when Super Mario 3 came out? And why don’t they protest his Frog Suit? What About his Turtle Suit? 

“in real life, Mario would”
PETA, just stop. You’re the worst.

Nightwing In “Batman: Arkham City?”

Rumors are floating around that Dick Grayson may also appear in the upcoming Batman: Arkham City. Rumors were already floating around after information on specific PS3 trophies popped up relating to Grayson. And now many are believing that the above images are in fact really from the game.

If Grayson is to appear in the game, many also believe that he’ll be a part of a challenge pack, much like Tim Drake as Robin.
