Piano, trumpet, cowbell, and a distinct lack of face-melting dual guitar solos?  This can’t be the new Red Hot Chili Peppers album, can it?  You bet your sock-covered cock it is!  The crowned kings of funk-rap-rock-and-roll are back with their 10th studio album, I’m With You.  Clocking in at just under 60 minutes, the 14 tracks are unlike anything you have heard from the L.A. foursome, yet distinctly Chili Peppers. Technically, I suppose this isn’t the Chili Peppers you know, since it’s the first release with Josh Klinghoffer replacing guitar-god John Frusciante.  Admittedly, I was worried when I found out Frusciante…

During the 2011 Video Music Awards, MTV gave us our first exclusive look at footage from The Hunger Games.  The clip weighs in at just over a minute, and doesn’t give away too much, but we get to see Jennifer Lawrence in action as Katniss Everdeen.  Check it out below:   Looks good to me, although I had hoped for a much bigger reveal.  Here’s hoping we’re not too far away from a full-length theatrical trailer.

Earlier this week, we reported that GameStop had pulled all PC copies of Deus Ex: Human Revolution due to the inclusion of a competitor’s coupon.  Apparently, the community backlash has been strong enough that GameStop has taken it upon themselves to issue an apology, via a $50 gift card.  Here’s the official email that has begun circulating: Dear GameStop customer, Earlier this week, GameStop removed a competitor’s coupon from standard edition PC versions of Deus Ex: Human Revolution, a recent release by Square Enix. We were not aware that the product box would contain this competitor’s offer. We regret the…

In an official press release, Epic Games unveiled the names and descriptions of all 10 multiplayer maps that will ship with Gears of War 3.  Check them out, along with some screenshots, below: Checkout – Checkout’s combat takes place in the carcass of an abandoned superstore. The shop owners tried to move their inventory with a closeout sale in the weeks leading up to the HOD evacuations, but ultimately had to walk away and leave everything to time and history. The intense close-quarters combat of the store aisles makes every decision important. Weapon selection is key, cover is essential to…

In keeping with tradition, Bethesda has announced that the first round of DLC content for Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim will be available on Xbox Live before coming to other platforms.  The same strategy was employed for Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion and Fallout 3.  Here’s the official press release: On November 11th, Bethesda Game Studios brings us the next installment in The Elder Scrolls franchise with The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. Xbox LIVE will be the first to bring players the experience of Skyrim’s add-on content in this revolutionized open-world fantasy epic where players can explore any way they choose. The…

As if Martin Scorsese didn’t already have enough projects on his wishlist, The Hollywood Reporter says that he will team up with screenwriter William Monahan for a remake of the 1974 film The Gambler.  The original starred James Caan as an inspirational New York English professor who suffers from a crippling gambling addiction.  Caan’s performance was nominated for a Golden Globe. Monahan has yet to begin writing, so it’ll probably be awhile before we have any movement on this project.  Scorsese’s first family film, Hugo, will be released around Thanksgiving, and he is also scheduled to direct Silence and The…

Deadline is reporting that Supernatural creator Eric Kripke will write and produce an adaptation of DC’s Deadman for CW, in an effort to fill the void left by the final season of Smallville.  Deadline says “The project is about the spirit of a murdered man, Boston Brand, who lives on as he inhabits other people’s bodies and helps them solve crises in their own lives.” Kripke is a solid choice to develop this project, as Supernatural is the longest-running scripted show on CW.  The project will be co-produced by Warner Bros TV.

Kevin Smith’s final film, Hit Somebody, is still being written, but he recently revealed via his Twitter feed that the film would be released in two parts.  The first part, titled Hit Somebody: Home, has been completed, and Smith is hard at work on the second part, which he is calling Hit Somebody: Away.  He also stated that he plans for the first part to carry a PG-13 rating, while he anticipates an R rating for the second part. The cast currently includes Nicolas Braun, Kyle Gallner, and Michael Angarano (all of whom appeared in Smith’s Red State).  Smith has…

I really, really wanted to enjoy Final Fantasy XIII.  As the first next-gen entry of the series, I had lofty expectations, and while there were a handful of shining moments, the overall experience was disappointing.  Visually, the game was astounding, and I loved the new streamlined battle system.  But the plot?  An absolute mess.  I remember finishing the game and watching the final cutscene, then turning to my roommate and saying “Do you have any idea what just happened?  Because I don’t.” For reasons I can’t quite understand, Square Enix has decided to release a direct sequel to the title,…
