MineCraft 360 Marvel skin pack now live!

creeperrburstinChristmas Eve packed a pleasant surprise for me when I saw the new Marvel skin pack was live (and as far as I know unannounced) on Minecraft 360.

It’s Avengers heavy and features several Iron man suits, and even Agent Coulson ! It will run you 3.99 but if you are a huge marvel fan it might be worth it.

A Great day for Poor (and/or cheap) Nerds everywhere (MOS and new Futurama )

SupermanI was surprised to see there was zero delay between release of the final season of Futurama and it coming to Netflix. It’s been a long time fav of mine, and my wife is a bigger fan than me (and has the toys and stuffed animals to prove it!) So give it a watch if you haven’t yet. I’ll still be being her the Blu ray for the commentary, Futurama has always had some of the best commentary tracks.

I was also notified by the handy dandy remind me option at redbox that Man of Steel is now available. I’ve been a slacker and haven’t seen it yet, so if your like me you can get a  viewing in now that it’s a buck and change for a night with the blu ray.
