Back to the ‘Ghost Mine’


The SyFy Channel is launching Season 2 of Ghost Mine on September 4th at 10PM EST.

Continuing from last season at the Crescent Mine in Sumpter, Oregon . The show consists of several miners led by Stan Griffith and the paranormal investigating team of Kristen Luman and Patrick Doyle.

Last season the team discovered a closed off mine shaft, extending off of the main mine, and a second entrance, to the mine, on the side of a hill. When they entered they found a promising haul of gold, but when they returned the next day, the tunnel entrance was collapsed and closed off. With winter coming they had to vacate until the weather allowed for safe mining again.

One thing that makes this show interesting is the look at mining as well as paranormal investigating. The “haunting” seems to be taking place inside the mine as well as in the are of the camp and the town. The investigators have already looked into the local inn and the old Sumpter Dredge. I am sure they will find new places to investigate in the new season.

They captured some interesting audio, video and photographic evidence during the last season. The angles of the Indian curse and Masonic influence also adds to the mystery. I am excited to see what they uncover this season.

So what about you? What’s your favorite Kingdom Hearts game?

Unsurprise: Agent Coulson is still alive.


Did you really think they’d kill off the [insanely popular] Agent Phil Coulson? For good? In a Marvel movie?

Nope. He’s got his own show. And I know I’m probably one of the last people to tell you about it, given the ridiculous amount of press its gotten since Comic-Con.

So, yeah. Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Looks promising. Check out the premiere Tuesday, September 24th at 8/7c.

If he’s not dead, maybe he’s just really badly burnt?

Monster High ‘Catty Noir’ is now available!

This doll is a stunner.  She is my daughter’s #1 most wanted right now!

Oceanhorn trailer debuts!


We’ve been really excited about Oceanhorn over here at Shadowbinders HQ, so we were pretty stoked to see the new trailer featuring some of the soundtrack.

This game is going to be epic.

Check out the trailer for yourself below…

‘The Legend of Korra’ returns on September 13th


Friday the 13th will be lucky for Avatar fans this year.

The Legend of Korra returns for a second season on Friday, September 13th at 7 PM EST/PST.

While the first season was decent enough, we found it to be pretty joyless at times and lacking a lot of the charm of the original Avatar series.

The trailer looks pretty promising, however, and really highlights the fun factor. Let’s hope the second series lightens up a little.

What about you? What did you think about The Legend of Korra? Comment below!

Ben Affleck is the Gosh Darned Batman


It’s official. After much rumor and speculation, Ben Affleck is the new Batman.

Ben. Affleck.

Let it sink in a little.

Feel better? No?

Well, you’ll get used to it. Or not.

Hey, it could always be worse…

So, what do we call this one? Bat Affleck?
