From various sources, it looks like the new S.H.I.E.L.D. television series will have it's pilot episode air this fall. Even though it does not appear to have any of the major characters from the previous Marvel movies aside from Agent Phil Coulson (how does that work considering what happened to his character in the avengers movie?), the show looks promising. Coming from the writer/director of the Avengers movie, it should be action packed. And assuming this pilot turns into a full season, this could be the first step towards a variety of new marvel live action series.

Kotaku reports that Microsoft and Samsung have teamed up to immerse your gaming experience into a whole room. Using the next gen kenect, projections will illuminate your room after it has been scanned for size and furniture. This explaines earlier leaked documents which showed "hologram-like" technology for the supposed next gen console from Microsoft.

Here are 3 more features you may not know about!

First up, we have the "Like" feature. And no, this is not facebook integration. These are specifically Ancient Clan likes. On our old vbulletin software we had a reputation system and a "Thank you" modification that allowed people to thank a person for making a topic, which would result in giving that member some reputation points. The "Like" system we have now is the new reputation system.

Attachments:
On all of your posts you will see a "Like" bar and the names of the people that liked your post. If you hover over a username or go to their profile, you will see the total reputation points that user has. As of right now we do not currently have any real benefit for user's with high reputation points. We might use this at some point for different perks or upgrades (more gallery storage, etc.)

You can also go to your profile and easily view all the likes you have received or given. Once the gallery and blogs are back up, you will also be able to see all your likes in those as well by making your selections in the image below:

Next we have the "Follow this.. (topic, image, album, blog, etc.)" feature. By using the follow feature you can get instant or email notifications when something has been updated or replied to. You can also go into your profile settings and set yourself to automatically follow content that you create or to auto follow content that you reply to.

You can also think of it as an easy way to bookmark content because you can easily click on the "Content | Follow" link to see when the items you are following were last replied to. You can also choose which content to look at with the menu on the left:

The last feature for this post is the "My Media" button. This is probably my favorite new feature. In any post, reply, gallery / article / blog comment you make, you can click on the My Media button to easily insert an image from any of your previously attached images or gallery images.

You will never have to keep re-attaching images you like to use over and over again. Attach it once, or add it to your gallery to easily use that image whenever you want.

      If there is one thing I despise about anime across all genres, its the damn "recap X.5" episode. Nothing makes me cringe more when I load up my funi app only to see this week is a waste of time for one of the shows I watch. I was really irritated that FMP had one after just 4 episodes, and Legend of Galactic Heroes has one this week. Seriously, what a waste of effort and time. Even if I missed episodes, I'd rather go back and see the whole ep rather that get caught up on some clips from it mashed in with everything I've already seen.
      On another note, My Hero Academia was freaking amazing this week. Any ep where All Might fights is seriously some of the best content of the series.
      And then Steins;Gate 0 just gut punched us in the feels this week with Okabe shortly going back to an alpha world line... oh the feels. The emotional level of this series is brutal. It's been a while since I've felt this much empathy for a character.

      When I watched Tokyo Ghoul season 1 and 2 a few years ago, I thought it was the most over hyped pile of shit I've ever seen. Apparently it didn't follow the manga at all. I've been watching season 3 just because its a simuldub, and while I find it more entertaining, it's so disjointed from the first two seasons, it doesn't make any sense as a whole. Apparently they somewhat decided to start following the manga after skipping a few arcs? Apparently they announced season 4 and it's going to skip more between 3 and 4? What a train wreck... They might as well start over.

      You could definitely tell this was the last E3 for this generation of consoles. Super small showcases for everyone this year. Next year's E3 will be back to the ultra hype reels for Sony and Microsoft unveiling the next consoles followed with the games that are being made for them. It will be an off year for Battlefield next year, but the first COD will be by C studio Sledgehammer, since MW4 will be the last COD this gen.

      Absolutely gutted and devastated to hear of Anthony Bourdain's death, turned an already shitty day into an extremely shitty day. I would of said something earlier but I had to come to terms and sort out my own thoughts on this (and of course get through a 10 hour work day).
      The world truly is a bit darker and a lot less interesting today with his loss. His passion, gift for storytelling, humanity, and all around awesome attitude were what drew me in when I first started watching A Cook's Tour (his first show) so many years ago and what cemented my love for this man during the run of No Reservations. Sadly I never did get around to watching Parts Unknown or The Layover but I can only imagine they were as good as the other two. This man truly had a gift for opening his heart and mind to people and their culture as well as getting them to open up as well.
      RIP Mr. Bourdain, not only have you opened my eyes to new things, given me countless hours of enjoyment, and been an all around awesome person you've also inspired my love for travel (that one day I will hopefully get to do) and my love for other cultures. You will truly be missed and my heart goes out to your daughter and family in this extremely tragic moment. I can only hope you've finally found the peace that so eluded you in life.
