Get ready for Kingdom Hearts 3 by revisiting the first games in the series, and get an awesome art book.

On September 10th, Square Enix will be releasing the original Kingdom Hearts for the PS3. Kingdom Hearts 1.5 Remix will actually contain older Kingdom Hearts games, but they will be in HD with some digitally remastered elements.

The collection comes with the following Kingdom Hearts games:

  • Kingdom Hearts 1 Final Mix
  • Kingdom Hearts Re:  Chain of Memories
  • Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days (HD remastered cinematics only)

This is the first time Kingdom Hearts has been available for PS3.

I looked up more info on Kingdom Hearts 1 Final Mix and learned it has some changes from the original version including:

New Heartless, new weapons, new abilities, new cut scenes, new Gummi ship missions, additional boss battles,  new Ansem reports, a new secret movie, and improved game controls.

If you pre-order through Amazon.com you can get the Limited Edition with art book version.


From Amazon:

And a trailer…

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?

Chibi Godzilla! Kawaii!

Cowabunga! House furnished with geek goodies galore!


Now this is what I call a “furnished home.”

A redditor named Topherstiles has posted some images of an awesome haul of comic book and movie memorabilia including Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Star Wars and Superman. Apparently this stuff was left in a house that his parents’ friends bought. Seriously, who would leave this all behind?!

National Lampoon’s Disney Vacation

Real Life National Lampoon's Vacation Griswolds

Time to hit the holiday road!

These real life Griswolds took the ol’ Truckster to Wally Wor — er — Disney World.

From Yahoo

Steve and Lisa Griswold of Canton, Ga. own a travel agency — of course — and after years of jokes and questions about whether Steve knew where his sandwiches had been, the couple decided to embrace the fun with a trip to Disney World. Griswold hooked up with a Georgia tuning shop which managed to recreate George Barris’ ode to woody wagons using an appropriate Ford LTD Country Squire in a matter of weeks, down to correctly matching the color described by Eugene Levy in the movie as “metallic pea.” This being the 21st century, where children shall never be further than 10 feet from a screen at all times, the Truckster 2.0 comes with a DVD player, pre-loaded with the fictional Griswolds’ odyssey — viewable from the Family Trucksters’ rear side-facing bench seats.

Thankfully, Cousin Eddie was nowhere to be found.
