Project Raygun & Mondo Present The Thing: Infection At Outpost 31 Game

outpost_31_exterior_1024x1024

Mondo just announced a new partnership with Project Raygun, USAopoly’s brand new initiative focused on combining iconic properties with visionary art and design.

“The synergy between Mondo and Project Raygun was immediate, both driven by zeal and a deep-rooted appreciation of timeless and relevant pop culture,” explains VP of Project Raygun, Mike Gonzales.

“When Project Raygun started talking about tapping into fan’s passion and nostalgia for iconic properties and bringing them to life, it was clear that Mondo was the perfect fit to help us deliver the ultimate experience to the gaming and collector community,” continued John Davis, USAopoly and Project Raygun’s President and CEO.

Our first collaboration will center around John Carpenter’s 1982 sci-fi horror thriller, The Thing. In the new signature board game, titled Infection At Outpost 31, the tension and mystery of The Thing is recreated as players race to discover who among them are infected in the hidden identity game play engine. We recruited one of our favorite artists and package designers, Justin Erickson of Phantom City Creative, to handle art duties.

“When we set out to create the first licensed Mondo board game the biggest question was; what film property would we go after? So many of the films we celebrate at Mondo would be an absolute blast in game form,” explained Jay Shaw, Mondo Brand Director. “As soon as John Carpenter’s suspense masterpiece, The Thing was mentioned it very quickly became our top choice,” Shaw noted.

“The next step was to figure out how to actually make a game. We all love playing them, but none of us had designed one before. Game mechanics are an incredibly complicated art form and we didn’t want to enter this space unless we were going to get it right. Luckily our dear friends at Project Raygun were completely up to the challenge. They’ve built an incredibly challenging fast paced game of paranoia that transports players directly into the film,” Shaw continued.

USAopoly, Inc. and Project Raygun will be at Toy Fair in New York City, February 18-21. The division’s inaugural product line is scheduled for release starting Fall 2017.

Watch The Castle Rock Teaser From Stephen King & J.J. Abrams

jiyk3cwg1se1nz5yfyeh

Bad Robot Productions released a cryptic teaser trailer for a new Hulu original series that reteams J.J. Abrams and Stephen King called Castle Rock.

img_0498-png

The Bad Robot Twitter account posted a photo featuring Abrams’ stationary bearing a handwritten note that included a YouTube link, which leads to this Castle Rock teaser.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Castle Rock will be a Hulu anthology series that brings together the characters and themes of King’s works that involve Castle Rock. If multiple seasons are made, the show will center on different groups of characters each season while also introducing elements from prior seasons.

Castle Rock is the name of a fictional location in Maine that has been the site of a number of King’s stories, including The Dead Zone and Cujo, and also referenced in a number of other King stories like It and Pet Semetary. The trailer itself also makes references to a number of other King works, including The Shawshank Redemption, Misery, The Shining, and more, so it remains unclear how far-reaching Castle Rock will be in its connections to King’s novels and short stories.

Bad Robot’s photo, in addition to the YouTube link, also included the mysterious sentence, “What is the hoax in the forest?”

No other details, including a release date, have been revealed so far, though King himself tweeted that “J.J. Abrams and I want to invite you to take a trip to Castle Rock. Soon. Be afraid.”

King and Abrams previously collaborated on the Hulu adaptation of King’s novel 11/22/63.

The Fantastic World of Online Casinos

rsuxtabvicmo5njhtgis

One of the great success stories of recent years has been the rise and rise of the online casino. So much so that the declining revenues being earned in gaming capitals like Las Vegas have been blamed, at least partly, on the phenomenon.

There are a number of reasons why online gaming has taken off in quite the way it has. For example technological advances have meant that it’s possible to play virtually anywhere on a wide range of devices. It’s also easy to play for as long or short a time as you like maybe while waiting for a bus or travelling on a train.

The online casinos have also been advancing in leaps and bounds themselves to provide players with an ever-more realistic casino experience whether they’re there for the slots, roulette, blackjack or poker.

For example each week new slots are introduced which have been specifically designed with a particular player in mind, whether they’re Marvel Comics fans or are looking for a chance to win a substantial progressive jackpot.

For poker players there are generally a wide range of games to play including tournaments as well as simple game play. For those who are new to the game it’s also the perfect way to develop skills and learn winning strategies in a far less pressured environment than in a “live” scenario.

Having said this, one drawback of the online casino in the past is that it has not been able to re-create the atmosphere of the real thing but, fortunately, this issue has been addressed by most of the major online casinos.

This has resulted in a boom of the dazzling feature live casino which goes to great lengths to be as realistic as possible. So once you’re online and playing you can expect to see real, live dealers playing in real time and there are even “chat” functions. The high quality streams and real interaction will transport you to anywhere in the world as you experience the full blown casino atmosphere from your own home. It differs so much from normal online casino because you get a real sense of interaction with the real dealers’ one on one when playing live casino games such as blackjack live. Many pay hundreds of pounds to travel to places such as Vegas but with the technology an online casino like 888casino puts into their games and just how well they implement it means we would definitely recommend trying their live casino games if you fancy enjoying a bit of banter whilst you play live casino games at a real casino table online.

With good looking graphics and sound effects to create a real ambience it really does represent a major leap forward for the online casino experience.

Another aspect that does a great deal to attract players to the online version are the very generous joining bonuses that are often on offer. Generally these match the player’s initial deposit up to an agreed limit but the very best ones are simply free bets to be enjoyed.

A number of casinos are also starting to cash in on the projected boom in virtual reality to create an even more realistic casino experience in which a player will be able to sit round a table to compete against others who may be from the other side of the world or even play against friends who can all meet up in a virtual space.

So while the present already looks good, the future of the online casino looks to be even brighter. And, while that may be great new for fans of the online experience, it may well prove to be harder and harder for the bricks and mortar casinos to compete.

McDonald’s Creates Re-engineered Straws For Shamrock Season

mod-72593_strawoutofbox-jpeg

McDonald’s USA today changed the world (of shake-drinking) with a limited-edition straw designed by a team of aerospace and robotic engineers.

The Chocolate Shamrock Shake, one of four new seasonal McCafé beverages, has dual layers of delicious chocolate shake below Shamrock Shake. The new recipe presented McDonald’s a unique challenge to reinvent the shake experience. To deliver the ideal flavor ratio of 50% chocolate and 50% mint in each sip, versus enjoying each flavor separately with a traditional straw, McDonald’s turned to highly-qualified engineering firms. JACE and NK Labs created the probably-more-revolutionary-than-actually-needed Suction Tube for Reverse Axial Withdrawal (the STRAW). The STRAW’s j-shape provides optimal flavor flow dynamics.

Due to the STRAW’s unique design, only 2,000 were produced in time for Shamrock season. The STRAW will be available in select participating restaurants with the purchase of a Chocolate Shamrock Shake. Visit mcdonalds.mwnewsroom.com/US to learn where and when the lucky few will be distributed. And, like the seasonal offering of the McCafé Shamrock Chocolate offerings, the STRAW is also available for a limited time.

The Chocolate Shamrock Shake is one of four new mint and chocolate flavored McCafé beverages now available at McDonald’s locations nationwide for a limited time.

Those beverages include:

Chocolate Shamrock Shake: Vanilla soft serve and chocolate flavored syrup under the original mint flavored Shamrock Shake. Top it off with green sprinkles, whipped topping, and a cherry and it’s a match made in Shamrock heaven.

Shamrock Chocolate Chip Frappé: Made with an indulgent blend of chocolate chips and a hint of coffee, topped with green sprinkles, whipped topping, and tantalizing chocolaty drizzle.

Shamrock Mocha: Our classic Hot Mocha just got minty. Made with sustainably sourced espresso beans from Rainforest Alliance Certified farms, steamed whole or nonfat milk, mint and mocha flavored syrup, and topped with whipped topping and delicious chocolaty drizzle.

Shamrock Hot Chocolate: Our delicious Hot Chocolate now with cool mint flavor. Made with steamed whole or nonfat milk, mint and mocha flavored syrup, and topped with whipped topping and chocolaty drizzle.

Legion On FX

tvnmroq

Legion, based on the Marvel Comics by Chris Claremont and Bill Sienkiewicz, is the story of David Haller (Dan Stevens), a troubled young man who may be more than human. Diagnosed as schizophrenic as a child, David has been in and out of psychiatric hospitals for years. Now in his early 30s and institutionalized once again, David loses himself in the rhythm of the structured regimen of life in the hospital: breakfast, lunch, dinner, therapy, medications, sleep. David spends the rest of his time in companionable silence alongside his chatterbox friend Lenny (Aubrey Plaza), a fellow patient whose life-long drug and alcohol addiction has done nothing to quell her boundless optimism that her luck is about to change. The pleasant numbness of David’s routine is completely upended with the arrival of a beautiful and troubled new patient named Syd (Rachel Keller). Inexplicably drawn to one another, David and Syd share a startling encounter, after which David must confront the shocking possibility that the voices he hears and the visions he sees may actually be real.

A haunted man, David escapes from the hospital and seeks shelter with his sister Amy (Katie Aselton). But Amy’s concern for her brother is trumped by her desire to protect the picture perfect suburban life she’s built for herself. Eventually, Syd guides David to Melanie Bird (Jean Smart), a nurturing but demanding therapist with a sharp mind and unconventional methods. She and her team of specialists – Ptonomy (Jeremie Harris), Kerry (Amber Midthunder) and Cary (Bill Irwin) – open David’s eyes to an extraordinary new world of possibilities.
