What is Hadouken Cabs? Other than a 24-hour kick-ass minicab service with a
ripped Ryu, we don't really know yet. It seems like a funny fan video at first, but at
the end it looks like an official PlayStation 4 teaser. What does this mean?
There's even an intentionally bad website for
Hadouken Cabs, with an audio clip featuring Zangief when you click the
Talk to the Operator. Something Street Fighter related is coming to PS4, at
Speaking of weird PlayStation videos, the PocketStation teaser with the Toro
truck was for a
PocketStation App on the Vita, pretty much what most of us expected. Hopefully this gets released on the North
American Vita PSN Store. I would love to play those PocketStation games we
missed out on.
There are going to be
four new Marvel shows starring Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Iron Fist, and
Luke Cage. Each show will be thirteen episodes and they'll all come together
in a Defenders mini-series. Once they get to The Defenders series, I wonder if
it'll just be those four heroes, or if it'll include some of the original
roster. Oddly, they'll all be on Netflix. I figured ABC would be the prime
spot for Marvel shows.
The TV show Defenders
are probably going to be a bit different than the original team.
second RoboCop remake trailer shows a very different RoboCop. ED-209s
patrolling the world? Lots of other robot cop-like guys? Will this be an okay
Scalers wave 1 has expanded and will now have Alien, Predator, Gizmo,
Gollum, Freddy, and Jason. I like the look of these little guys and could see
them gaining some big popularity with their small size and cuteness. Plus,
there are cords everywhere, so there's no shortage of places to put them.
Scalers could be the
new versions of cell phone charms, because there are cords everywhere.

The awesome space cyborg
Gigan is the next S.H. MonsterArts figure. Bluefin Tamashii Nations posted
a photo of the figure, which is based on Gigan's 2004 appearance in
Wars. It looks amazing and I would love to see some interchangeable arm
weapons for it.
Gigan, the deadly space
monster cyborg... from space.
Star Wars Black Series 3 will have a Stormtrooper, Dagobah Luke, and
Prequel Obi-Wan. The Stormtrooper looks great, but I can see it being
difficult to find since many collector's will be using him as an army builder,
like they do with the Sandtrooper. Obi-Wan is fine, but I don't
need him. And what the hell is going on with Luke's face? That's a terrible
expression to have on the figure.
There's going to be a
Chogokin Hello Kitty figure. The figure has shooting fists, can be
"transformed" into flying, under water, and walking modes, and has Hello Kitty
sitting inside piloting it. The mech even has angry eye mode. This
NECA is making little 2" figures called
Scalers. These little guys can be attached to various cords. There will be
figures of over 50 licenses including Aliens, Predator, Godzilla, Pacific Rim,
Portal, Nightmare on Elm Street, and Friday the 13th.
McFarlane Toys' Rabbids toys are letting loose in Spring 2014. There will
be figures, plush, and some sort of accessories. I wonder if these will warm
the pegs like the other Rabbids figuines.
Indiana Jones Figma looks old. I like that it includes accessories from
the three original films, but the face looks like Crystal Skull Indy.
The PocketStation is coming back. Somehow. Here's this fake news video of reporters
chasing after a Top Secret Toro truck, and spying on Toro. It's a weird video,
but I wouldn't expect anything less form Japan. An official announcement
regarding the PocketStation will be on Nov. 5th.
Titanfall is never hitting PS4. Well, actually it was to be exclusive
to Xbox One for
launch, but due to a revised deal or something, the first Titanfall
will never be on PS4. So this will already be a franchise and the sequels
could hit PS4. With all the hype surrounding this as being on the Xbox One, I
didn't even realize that Titanfall will also be
on the 360. Awesome, I actually will get to play it than. Titanfall also has a
$250 Collector's Edition. That's half the price of an Xbox One! It
includes a 19" statue with LEDs, a hardcover art book, and a poster. $250 is a
ridiculous amount for a collector's edition, though. Man, I thought the Call
Prestige Editions were bad enough at $200.
Call of Duty: Ghosts is going to have aliens in it in the upcoming
Extinction mode. 1 - 4 players can fight Zerg-like aliens together. This
looks like it could be cool and I hope this turns out better than the previous
games' zombies mode. Also, Call of Duty: Ghosts is
upscaled on the Xbox One, upped to 1080p from 720p. However, It runs
at a native 1080p on PS4. Interesting.
