Geek Blu Review: Fringe Season 3
Last Updated on Wednesday, 28 September 2011 01:27 Written by LoganDX Wednesday, 28 September 2011 01:00
Fringe may go down as the most ill-hyped show of the last few years. When it was first announced, way too many people started comparing it to a past Fox hit series – The X-Files. At first the similarities were there with the weird, impossible events being investigated by a team of FBI agents. There were creatures and aliens and crazy people – Oh my! I was at first against another X-Files type program and therefore hesitant to watch Fringe. But watch I did and am I glad I did!
Something happened after the first few episodes, something changed. It wasn’t the show per se but my perception of it. Once I stopped looking for the Mulder/Scully connection and started watching this new show, I became enthralled with the Fringe Division. With Walter Bishop and Olivia Dunham. Watching for the Observer, hunting down glyphs. This wasn’t the “New” X-Files, this was a real show. A better show. A show that just started its Fourth Season and just released Season Three on disc. A Season Three I just plowed through on Blu ray. Warning: There be mild SPOILERS ahead!

When the latest Mortal Kombat sequel was released, there was talk of additional Kombatants being available in the future as downloadable content. First it was Skarlet, then Kenshi and eventually Rain. A fourth unnamed fighter was hinted at and even teased a bit but he has finally come out of your nightmares into reality. That’s right, the Scourge of Elm Street, Freddy Krueger will be slicing and dicing in Mortal Kombat!
Coming August 9th, Freddy will bring his signature bladed gloves and jab them straight into the faces and other body parts of the rest of the MK crew. Watching the announcement trailer, I noticed his fatalities are signature Freddy through and through. Summoning a massive fire-breathing boiler, tossing the victim in and laughing in his maniacal voice? Yep that’s Freddy. His fighting style reminds one of Wolverine, what with the bladed gloves and all. Rumors have been floating around that a certain Jason Voorhees would also be included but it seems this round went to Freddy. All they need now is the little girls in white, chanting “One, Two, Freddy’s coming for you”.
The Springwood Slaughterer will be available for 400 Microsoft points, or free with the Kombat Pass, and $4.99 on the PS Store. Hit the jump, peep the trailer and tell us, how excited are you to fight as the Dream Warriors antagonist? What about a true Movie Monsters fighting game?

It was a foregone conclusion that Warner Brothers and Rocksteady would release a collector’s edition of the upcoming Batman: Arkham City. Besides the fact that publishers love cranking them out, Arkham Asylum had a decent collector’s edition as well. I say decent because that Batarang shouldn’t have been plastic nor hard mounted to the display stand! Ahh but I digress. Yesterday, we had reports of Amazon and GameStop putting up pre-order pages for a collector’s edition of Arkham City. Just a description of the contents was posted, no picture. Well today is a new day and guess what? Yep that’s right, we have a picture!
All in all, it looks like Warner Brothers are putting together a solid CE with Arkham City. I’m reminded more of the set Ubisoft put together for Assassin’s Creed II than the one for Arkham Asylum. As if I wasn’t already excited for the next video game outing for the Dark Knight, now I’m even more pumped. Hit the jump to peep the pic and find out what exactly will be stuffed inside the box.

Well, well, well. It seems the powers that be have decided to spruce up Mortal Kombat with a discount package on the upcoming DLC characters. The package, appropriately titled the Kombat Pass, with allow gamers to download the four scheduled Kombatants to be released as add-ons. Besides the already announced Skarlet, who will comboing on June 21, MK will get Kenshi, Rain and one as of yet unnamed fatality inflicter. With each of the fighter priced at 400 Microsoft Points, or $5, the pass is mostly a bargain at 1200 Points, or $15. Gamers get a “Buy 3, Get 1 Free” deal which isn’t too shabby.
