So They Have Announced Who Will Play The Next Batman, and It’s Daredevil…..WHAA?

Daredevil

Yes, you read that right. Ben Affleck, who played Daredevil in the Marvel Film from 2003, will be playing Batman in the upcoming untitled Batman-Superman film by Warner Bros, the studio announced Thursday.

Zack Snyder, in a statement to the press said this of the casting choice.

“Ben provides an interesting counter-balance to Henry’s Superman. He has the acting chops to create a layered portrayal of a man who is older and wiser than Clark Kent and bears the scars of a seasoned crime fighter, but retain the charm that the world sees in billionaire Bruce Wayne, I can’t wait to work with him”

I guess now Ben Affleck can really say “NO, I am Batman”

What do you guys think of this casting choice? Yay? Nay?

Xbox One80? Microsoft reveals the Xbox One will be usable without Kinect.

Xbox_Consle_Sensr_controllr_F_TransBG_RGB_2013

It would appear that Microsoft has yet again decided to pull another 180, this time in regards to the Kinect sensor.

Previously at E3, we were told that the Xbox One would not function without the Kinect sensor connected to the console. Well last night on IGN, Marc Whitten, Chief Xbox One Platform Architect was asked “How “off” can Kinect be when the system is in use?” and to this he replied ” You have the ability to completely turn the sensor off in your settings. When in this mode, the sensor is not collecting any information. Any functionality that relies on voice, video, gesture or more won’t work. We still support using it for IR blasting in this mode. You can turn the sensor back on at any time through settings, and if you enter into a required Kinect experience (like Kinect Sports Rivals for instance), you’ll get a message asking if you want to turn the sensor back on in order to continue.”

So the Kinect is no longer mandatory, but they are still selling every console with one. What do you guys think of this new turn of events?

You can see the whole AMA (Ask me anything) over at IGN.

Wii U $199 this Weekend at Walmart

wiiu$199

If you were on the fence or even thinking about getting a Wii U, now may be the right time to run out and get one. This long weekend Walmart Canada has the basic set for $199, which is in my opinion a fantastic deal. Don’t have a Walmart in your area? No problem, we have confirmation that Futureshop will price match this promotion. Our very own writer Dayne just picked up his own Wii U for $194 after getting Futureshop to price match and beat Walmart’s price. Your mileage may very, so if $5 isn’t worth the hassle just head down to your nearest Walmart and take advantage of this wicked deal.
