A new Spider-Man game is on the horizon releasing alongside it’s movie reboot, The Amazing Spider-Man. The Spider-Man games are definitely a toss-up, some of them have been spectacular, while others are heralded as the worst games ever. Regardless of whether you’re excited to swing through the city as the friendly neighborhood spider or not, there’s no denying that the cameo of creator Stan Lee as a playable character will be awesome. Check him out in action below or pick up a copy of The Amazing Spider-Man yourself and have a ball flying through the city as the oldest nerd alive!
At the tone, the time will be Friday Fun. Yes, here we go again. First up, are you a fan of Minecraft and anime? Ever wish they could go together? Some enterprising, or sad, person in Japan has combined the two:
Next, an ongoing debate among the scholars of our time is, of course, “Can a game based on a movie be good?”. I have to say freddiew.com might just have answered a resounding, answer. Behold, the sidescolling “Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter”:
Finally, I’d like to slow things down, for all the lovers out there. Something for the heart, from the heart and the guys over at The Warp Zone:
We’re all here to find love and have a happy Friday.
Have you ever wondered how a person could sit by and watch as someone was burned alive? Well with a pair of goggles like these, it might not be too difficult. Check out the new trailer for the Team Fortress 2 add-on. This is what happens when Adult Swim and Valve combine forces. There is much ridiculousness to be had.
The Donkey Kong series has introduced some of the most classic games of all time. This round of Nerd Wars! could prove to be rather difficult. We have selected our favorites, now we need your help deciding which of these titles is the greatest. Let’s go bananas for this week’s Nerd Wars!

Summer is a great time for action games, and Rockstar delivers with Max Payne 3. At first, I’ll admit, I was a little weary of the franchise’s revival. But fear not, this is a solid example of great story-telling mixed with edge of your seat gaming. Max travels to Brazil hoping to get a fresh start, but it’s never that easy when trouble finds you.

It’s Friday and you know what that means! Friday Fun videos! Exclamation Point! First, we have a case of fear and loathing in Pallet Town from high5toons:
Next up, from Polygon for their upcoming website, we have a brief history of gaming. Something, a well respected doctor of video game history, such as myself, can appreciate in full:
While this next video isn’t game related, it is fun. If you have never seen the film Black Dynamite, please stop whatever you are doing and go watch it. It is the funniest movie ever made. I’ll wait. Back? Now, check out the new trailer for the beautifully animated Adult Swim show:
To round it all off, we have 11 minutes of pure jrpg comfort food, or as it is better know: the Dragon Quest series. Hat tip to Kotaku.com for this (unfortunately, although it’s not hard to get the gist of it) Japanese language trailer:
Blizzard introduced a new “security” measure with the latest patch for Diablo 3. If you were thinking about purchasing a digital copy of the game, you may want to reconsider, or possibly time it for an off weekend because you will essentially be stuck with a demo version (“Starter Version”) of the game for three days. That’s right folks, for 72 hours you are restricted to a level 13 character and you can only progress to the Skeleton King in Act 1. Oh and by the way… you can only play with friends who have the “Starter Version”… and you can’t access any features of the auction house. It seems like this is the latest push in Blizzard’s war against farming. Which honestly, needs to be combated somehow. Some people just have to ruin it for everyone I guess.
We want to know what you think. Is this going too far? Why do you think these types of security measures got put into place?
Remember those lonely nights sitting alone at home, controller clenched in hand, afraid of checking the noise in the next room? Well on this week’s segment of Nerd Wars!, we want to know your favorite freaky franchise.
