Captain America 3: Civil War

It was officially announced today that Captain America 3 will be titled Civil War. This new movie will incorporate the Marvel: Civil War story line centered around the Superhuman registration act.  Iron Man Tony Stark and some heroes support the government registration. Captain America and other members of the Avengers do not.  In the comics, this story line crossed several different characters and put them at odds with those were once their closest friends.

The movie is slated for May 16, 2015 and will start Robert Downey, Jr as Iron Man and Chris Evans as Captain America.

X-Wing and Tie Fighter Games Get New Digital Releases

The Star Wars X-Wing and Tie Fighter games were a staple around my home in the mid 1990s.  They were fun to play, had cool sound and effects and helped you to fit into the Star Wars story line.  Now, Good Old Games is re-releasing a digital version of the games that don't require an emulator for modern PCs.  I tried to run mine several years ago and it was so fast, I couldn't take off or control my fighter.

The cost for the Full Special Editions packs are $9.99.  There is also a Knights of the Old Republic version.

Here is a link for more information:

First Official Trailer for Avengers: Age of Ultron

After a brief few hours where the trailer was "leaked" and then removed, the official Avengers: Age of Ultron trailer is now available. It is scheduled to be shown with next week's Marvel: Agents of Shield episode, but some things just can't wait I guess.

Here it is and it is glorious. James Spader as the voice of Ultron is pretty cool. Plus, we get our first look at Iron Man in the Hulk Buster armor.

The Epherium Chronicles: Echoes Update

Wanted to give everyone an update on the third installment of The Epherium Chronicles, Echoes. I am working on edits with my Carina Press editor, Rhonda Helms. I've seen the back cover copy draft and it looks great. I should get a first look at the cover soon.  Once those two are final, I'll post them here.

This book is a thrill ride from start to finish. There is so much happening. I had to remove some of the smaller subplots and push them to book 4. Release date is March 30, 2015.

Great Astronaut Commercial

Despite the small bit where sound would travel in space, this was a funny commercial.
