After Ben Affleck took to social media to reveal that iconic DC Comics villain Deathstroke would be joining the DC movie universe, the new (official) head of all things DC has arrived to confirm not only his introduction, but who will be playing him. Fans will still need to wonder if Deathstroke the Terminator will be appearing in a small role in Justice League, or if a rumored role as the main adversary in Ben Affleck’s solo Batman movie, but DC Films boss Geoff Johns himself has now spilled most of the beans.

Proof That SUPER TROOPERS 2 is Really Finally Happening

BOOSTER GOLD Film Will Not Be Part of the DC Movie Universe

Well here’s some news that seems more positive than not given DC’s recent movie outings. io9 is reporting that the announced Booster Gold film will not be part of the DC Movie Universe. Greg Berlanti (who is heading up the project that was initially pitched as a TV series) gives the official word:

“As of right now we have no connective tissue to those worlds. It’d be a separate thing.”

This would make sense as Booster Gold is a man from the future who steals a super suit and time machine and travels to our time to be a great hero. Booster Gold is a bit too goofy for how serious the current DC movie universe is anyway, so I think that’s best, but he would be great if he were a part of the TV universe!

Top 10 90’s Coin Op Arcade Games

90_coin_opThe 1980s were a simplier times for video games: there weren’t fancy graphics, intricate story-lines, or those mind-numbing videos that you weren’t allowed to skip. The local arcade was the ultimate destination for birthday parties, Bar Mitzvahs, Bat Mitzvahs, or lazy saturday afternoons. They were loud, exciting, smelly, and packed with the finest assortment of games (and cold pretzels) managed by the nerdiest of gentlemen. Each and every arcade game—whether it was Nintendo or Sega—was similar in its simplicity, but a total blast.

The 1990s were an awesome times for video and arcade games. The graphics improved dramatically – both in 2D and the emerging 3D. The maze and platform genres were supplanted by the fighting, racing, and FPS genres. The 90s was also the golden age for pinball games – but that is another discussion for another time.

By the end of the decade, the home video games surpassed their arcade counterparts, and arcades were going the way of video rental stores. Pinball machines and arcade cabinets made way for crane games, whack-a-moles, basketball cages, and skee ball alleys.

So in honor of the high water mark of arcade games, here is The Podcast Unlimited Top Ten 90’s Coin Op Arcade Games! Continue reading
