Tony Stark is off on another mission, but this mission isn’t saving the day. This time Tony Stark, aka Iron Man, is here to brighten up that office desk of yours. The Funko Pop Marvel: Avengers 2 Unmasked Iron Man Action Figure is a great way to express your love for the Avengers two movie while at the same time letting everyone know you’re an Iron Man fan. Tony Stark is three and three quarters of an inch tall. Three inches may seem a bit small, but it is quite a nice size when it comes to decorating something like a desk, or table. I have a few Funko Pop figures myself, and Daryl, from the Walking Dead, fits right at home with all of my pencils, alarm clocks, and papers scattered around my desk. Unlike most Funko POP figures, the Unmasked Iron Man figure is an Amazon exclusive. Iron Man is ready to take on his mission to brighten up your desk, but are you ready for the challenge?

Star Wars Battlefront New 10 v 10 Game Mode is a Blast!


Star Wars Battlefront is probably my most anticipated game this year, and it is something I am absolutely dying to get my hands on. After seeing the E3 trailer I really thought Battlefront couldn’t get any better, but I was wrong… oh so wrong! EAStarWars posted on their Twitter page that they have a new game mode that is in every classic FPS game, but with a Star Wars twist, obviously. This game mode is a 10 v 10 all guns a blazing deathmatch. This means that if you’re tired of the insane AT-AT combat you can always switch over to some good old team deathmatch to cool off. Now keep in mind that because there are no vehicles the maps will be a lot smaller. This should come as no surprise. I mean Dice has been know to shrink the maps in their Battlefield games, as well, to create faster paced games. It’s the Imperials vs. the Rebels in an all out gunfight! Will you join forces with the Rebels, or will the dark side take over?

LEGO Dimensions has a Storyline to Follow


You can check out all of our LEGO Dimension Trackers here!

Did you know that LEGO Dimensions is more than just random LEGO characters all coming together to do random stuff? Yeah it was a bit of a shocker when LEGO released this trailer because in all honesty I was expecting the game to be some open world environment where all you do is collect different LEGO figures to join your team, and to go around the world doing small side quests. The Official LEGO Dimensions Story Trailer: Worlds Collide seems to portray how the story in the game may fan out.

The trailer shows off the main antagonist as a man looking for power. It is unclear if he wants to take over the world, but he did mention something about universes colliding. So, I can only assume that after the collisions have occurred that he will take it over. This evil mastermind is names Lord Vortech. He lives on an ancient planet that is at the center to all of the LEGO Universes. This planet has the power to control all other LEGO Universes. I mean this is an evil guy living on an all-powerful planet! What could possibly go wrong? You can check out the LEGO Dimensions Worlds Collide trailer down below, and let us know what you think about this LEGO Dimensions Story Line.

Mafia III Official Teaser Image is Here!


2K Games has officially released a teaser image for Mafia III. The trailer is supposed to air August 5th at 8 am eastern time, and 1 pm UK time. According to 2K Games Mafia III will be set some time in the late ‘60s to ‘70s. 2K Games has also stated that the game will feature historically accurate music, fashion, and cars.

Now I have had my fair share of Mafia II, and for the most part the game was historically accurate as well. Good thing 2K Games is continuing this theme because it was easily one of the best parts about Mafia II. For now there isn’t much we can tell about the game except that there are four characters, and one of them seems to be a female. One week may seem like a long time, but trust me the official Mafia III trailer will be here a lot sooner than you think!
