Zombie shows have been shambling along recently – Z Nation wasn’t quite the hit it was touted to be, while in the movies we had a gem like this last year. And while the shambling The Walking Dead demonstrates that such shows still have a lot of legs on TV, a new CW series, iZombie, is set to bring new life to the zombie genre.
So The Girlfriend messaged me first thing in the morning yelling “KAMALA’S AN AVENGER!!”, to which I responded, “OMG OMG OMG YES YES YES!”. Truth be told, that’s kinda become my standard reaction to her, but I’ll spare all of you the details. Heh. Yes, in an announcement made just hours ago, Marvel proudly showed off their vision for the all-new post-Secret Wars Marvel Universe by revealing its first title – The All-New, All-Different Avengers. A vision where Kamala Khan, aka Ms. Marvel, is a member of their flagship team.
But of course, Marvel is well-known for being a tease, and they’ve silhouetted most of the other members of the team for now… with the exception of one other: THOR. So who else might be joining Ms. Marvel and Thor in The All-New, All-Different Avengers? Let’s take a look:

Cities: Skylines is a city builder and simulation by Colossal Order and publisher Paradox Interactive. The easiest way to describe it is ask what it is, and what it isn’t. What is it not? It is not Sim City 2013. What is it? It is what Sim City should have been. We all know the SimFiasco Sim City was, and as a long time, LIFE TIME fan of Sim City (the first game I paid money for was for the original Sim City, in the MPH next to the now torn down Central Lending Library), no one felt the betrayal of Sim City as much as I. And it almost seems impolite to cheer a game that is so similar to Sim City, so soon after Maxis’ passing.
Riding roller coasters? Check. Designing your own insane coasters? Check. Causing destruction (sans death) with the coaster you just designed? It can only be ScreamRide. A new game by Roller Coaster Tycoon developers Frontier Developments, ScreamRide takes what made the RollerCoaster Tycoon games so popular and ramps it up to eleven – and ooh, what a ride.
While most of the upcoming HBO series will be airing in Singapore at the same time as the US release (hoorah!), there’s an added benefit of living in our sunny island – we’ll get to catch JK Rowling’s The Casual Vacancy almost a month ahead of the US release.
