Summer movie season is nearly upon us. We’re now a month away from most likely the greatest X-Men film ever. It seems like just yesterday when the news became official about the film, but now one of the more memorable story arcs from the comics will be coming to life.

Celebrating 75 years of Batman, Bruce Timm lends his iconic art style for this video short in commemoration. The short reveals a “lost tale from Batman’s past” involving Hugo Strange. Definitely makes you wish it were part of a longer movie.
HBO up’d the first episode to their brand new show Silicon Valley on Youtube. It’s heavily edited from the original content that premiered on April 6th, but you’ll get an idea of what it’s about.
For non-watchers: Silicon Valley is a new Sunday-night comedy from Beavis & Butthead creator Mike Judge, Millennials are no strangers to this tech-savvy world we live in and the endless river of startup companies trying to get on the map with their app ideas. The show definitely has potential.
Worth noting that Amazon Instant Video has an original TV show called Betas that’s pretty much the same idea, and we all know about Big Bang Theory. Nerd-centric shows like these are definitely the current wave.

Video: "The Division" Snowdrop Engine Demo (GDC 2014)
As part of last week’s GDC event, devs from Massive Entertainment showed off their work with the Snowdrop engine, the backbone of their upcoming next gen/PC title Tom Clancy’s The Division. It’s looking great, though one can imagine it won’t look THAT great on consoles (see recent graphic downgrade controversies with other games).
No concrete release date has been outted for the game other than Fall 2014 to early 2015.
