5 things to know about the The Avengers: Age Of Ultron’s Hulkbuster

The Avengers: Age Of Ultron opened today (Apr 23) – a whole lot earlier than huge swathes of the world – and as an added treat to all Singaporean Avengers fans, Disney had a little something special for the fans: A life-sized Hulkbuster guarding the streets at ION Orchard.

The Hulkbuster is one of Tony Stark’s Iron Man armours (if you’re into collecting all his armours you’re probably broke by now), and definitely a wonder to behold in person. This is especially so if you’ve watched bits of the fight against the Hulk in the trailer or if you’ve caught one of the early preview screenings and, like us, thought that fight was the bee’s knees. Still, as the metal behemoth stands inscrutable, a silent sentinel over the junction of Scotts Road and Paterson Road, we dug deep into Jarvis’ memory banks to find out five things you might want to tell someone each time you walk past it. Just, you know, so you can be as irritatingly smug as Tony Stark.

The Avengers: Age Of Ultron – the spoiler-free reviewgitation

A movie review of The Avengers: Age Of Ultron with
Direcow Avatar Direcow,Kakita  Avatar Kakita and Korgath Avatar Korgath

They’re back, all assembled. They’re the Avengers, Earth’s mightiest heroes, and after the smash hit in 2012, director Joss Whedon is back at the helm with the usual suspects: Black Widow, Captain America, Iron Man, Thor, Hulk and Hawkeye. The first movie truly was lightning in a bottle – a large ensemble movie weaving together threads from various other movie into one impossibly cohesive whole. With the second, Avengers: Age Of Ultron, can Thor strike twice at the same spot, or does Heimdall have some rule against that?

To mark this occasion, Direcow, Kakita and Korgath have got together to do their first reviewgitation since 2013 – and yes, this is spoiler-free! (Check out the spoiler-tastic version here.) More under the cut.

Subway Singapore creates Earth’s Mightiest Avengers Tie-In

Unlike a certain other movie universe, the Marvel Cinematic Universe has never taken itself TOO seriously. It’s always known how to poke fun at itself and heartily embraces its comic book roots. Therefore it’s no surprise that, when promoting the upcoming Avengers: Age of Ultron movie in Singapore, it’s this ad that is making the country laugh.

Because, you gotta admit, there’s probably as much cheese in the ad as in a footlong Tuna Bacon Melt. Subway Singapore has once again tied up with Marvel to bring you a marketing campaign that will make fans hungry to watch Earth’s Mightiest Heroes in cinemas later this month.

Check under the cut for details on how you can win a pair of tickets to an exclusive preview of Avengers: Age of Ultron, before the rest of the world!

Pillars of Eternity: The Review

Wow, Paradox Interactive is on a roll. First Cities: Skylines, and now this? Granted, I don’t know how much they put into this, but still. Having your names attached to two things that have garnered so much support must be great.


Pillars of Eternity is a love letter from gamers to the PC RPGs in the Baldurs Gate, Icewind Dale and Planescape Torment Bioware era. And judging by the close to 4 million mark at the end of its kickstarter, I have to say that there are a WHOLE LOT of gamers who loved (who love) those games.
