Kanye West “YEEZY BOOST” sneakers released in technical video

If you though a pair of sneakers could never warrant a nationwide live video event hosted by an international pop star, you were wrong. Kanye West has just run an event just like that - with live feeds being sent to theaters in several cities across the United States. And the subject matter - they're not embedded with Bluetooth, nor are they able to check your steps. They are, on the other hand, designed by and endorsed by Kanye West himself. For many consumers, that's more than enough reason to want a pair or two or three.

Behind the scenes with the new James Bond flick Spectre

Behind the scenes with the new James Bond flick Spectre

I am a huge James Bond fan and have been since I was a kid. As a child of the 80s, I grew up with Roger Moore as Bond and have always liked the action and the awesome gadgets Bond gets to use. That Lotus that turned into a submarine is one of the best Bond gadgets ever. I might have grown up with Moore as Bond, but I think that Daniel Craig has been the best Bond so far.

Sling TV adds AMC to its core subscription plan

Sling TV adds AMC to its core subscription plan

The introduction of Sling TV went a certain way for some of us: excitement, followed by hope that it would offer AMC, followed by disappointment that it didn't and we'd still have to wait longer than the cable bound to get our Walking Dead fix. That changed on Monday, with Dish Network's Internet-based streaming TV service announcing that it has added AMC to its core subscription plan, bringing with it some of the network's other channels (BBC World News, etc.), as well.

Netflix’s ‘Bloodline’ gets its first trailer

As we've previously mentioned, Netflix will be releasing another original series called 'Bloodline' on March 20, and ahead of that debut is the series' first trailer. Netflix released the trailer on its YouTube account on Monday, and during its two or so minutes, we're given a decent enough look at show, with the focus being mostly on the family and its drama. The trailer is wrapped up neatly with the series' hook: "We're not bad people, we just did a bad thing."

Ghostbusters board game unveiled ahead of new movie

Ahead of the new movie that'll be coming out, Cryptozoic Entertainment has introduced a new Ghostbusters board game (fret not you purists, it's based on the original movie). The game is for up to four players who are tasked with both vanquishing ghosts and sealing off the gates through which they enter our world. The board game is a bit fluid, in that it features "levels" with different rates of difficulty, as well as individual board tiles that are double-sided.

Sony, Marvel agree to bring Spidey to Marvel film universe

Sony, Marvel agree to bring Spidey to Marvel film universe

Now, this sort of deal might sound strange at first. Sony Pictures and Marvel Studios have inked a deal that will let the webslinger, well, sling between multiple films created by the two rival studios. This means that, aside from whatever Amazing Spider-Man film Sony Pictures has planned, your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man will soon be making an appearance in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) as well, first by himself and, perhaps, with others. There is even a possibility of MCU characters coming into Sony Picture's films.

8-Bit Philosophy makes you existential using retro games

8-Bit Philosophy makes you existential using retro games

Maybe you glossed over your philosophy homework in college, or some of the concepts were a bit too heavy to stick properly the first time around. Regardless, there's a better way to get your feet wet with all things existential and ponderous, and it's called 8-Bit Philosophy. Fans of 8-Bit Cinema will be familiar with the style and nature of the videos -- each one is short and styled after a retro game, but rather than recreating popular movies, the series sets out to simplify philosophical concepts.
