first_imgStay on target ‘Astral Chain’ and Other Dumb Nintendo SongsHands-On: ‘Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020’ Seems Fine With Nintendo being on everyone’s mind these days, McDonald’s has wisely partnered with the world’s most famous game company to include Mario Toys inside of Happy Meals. Happy Meals purchased from now until May 22 will come with one of eight different Mario toys.These Mario toys look a lot like Amiibos. Though the toys do not have the same functionality of Amiibos, they do have “special functions.” For example, the transparent Mario can light up with different colors.Nintendo Switch consoles are still hard to find. Thankfully, McDonald’s is giving folks a chance to win the coveted Nintendo system along with a copy of the upcoming Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. To qualify, you have to buy something at a McDonald’s restaurant and then register that purchase with the company’s mobile app. This will provide customers with one entry in the sweepstakes. Happy Meal purchases will get folks two entries. For the full list of rules, make sure to follow this link.via youtubeHappy Meals are technically supposed to be for children but don’t be surprised if there is a sudden uptick in the number of adult purchasers. I’m not the biggest Nintendo fan out there, but even I kind of want some of these toys. I don’t see the harm in buying them even if you are an adult. Although if you can, bring your little cousin or a friend’s kid with you to the register, so you don’t have to suffer too much embarrassment.In other Nintendo Switch news, GameStop will have a limited number of systems in stock today. They’ll all likely be gone by the time you read this, but there may be some left. Best Buy and Toys R Us will also have additional consoles in stock on Friday, so you may want to try getting one at that time. Good luck!last_img read more


David Tennant and Michael Sheen Look So Good in Good Omens

first_img 20,000 People Demand Netflix to Cancel ‘Good Omens’ in Petition Fail’Good Omens’ Trailer Turns the End of the World Into the Ultimate Party An adaptation of Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman’s joyful apocalypse tale, Good Omens is finally happening. It’s been in the works in one form or another for years, but now we have photo evidence of its existence. It’s happening. For real. It has actors with costumes and everything. David Tennant plays the demon, Crowley, while Michael Sheen plays the angel, Aziraphale. Gaiman tweeted out a photo of the two actors all dressed up and, speaking as a monster Good Omens fan, it’s everything I could have hoped for. Stay on targetcenter_img They are amazing. This is them in the opening scenes, 11 years ago, in St James’s Park. David and Michael, demon & angel. #GoodOmens pic.twitter.com/ceK4XYY881— Neil Gaiman (@neilhimself) September 18, 2017Man, they look good. For those who haven’t read obsessively read and re-read the novel, Aziraphale and Crowley, despite being on opposite sides, are good friends. They’ve both enjoyed their time on Earth, and neither want to see it come to an end. As the apocalypse approaches, they decide to keep an eye on the Antichrist as he grows up to make sure he can never bring about the end of the world. Unfortunately, there’s a mix-up at the hospital and they end up looking after a powerless boy while the real Antichrist has an idyllic childhood completely unaware of his power. All this sets the stage for the funniest apocalypse story you’ve ever read.The book was written by Pratchett and Gaiman in 1988, when they decided to collaborate on a book just for fun. Pratchett did the majority of the writing as Gaiman had DC Comics deadlines to meet for The Sandman. They brainstormed over the phone, each writing chapters for different characters, and traded characters at the end. They sent old-school big floppy discs back and forth by mail, each editing and adding to each other’s work. It was a big, crazy process that led to something strange and amazing. Good Omens is one of my absolute favorite books. It’s one of the very few that I’ve bought multiple copies of because I keep lending them out. Now, it’s finally being put on screen. Even though we only have one photo to go on, they’re already nailing the look and feel of these two characters. Crowley’s ’80s cool guy look is perfectly demonic. Aziraphale’s costume exudes fussy pompousness. And boy, does David Tennant’s hair look fantastic. I can’t wait to see how the show adapts the source material. Though sadly, they’ll probably have to take out the joke about cassette tapes turning into The Best of Queen if they’re left in a car for more than two weeks. That probably doesn’t play anymore.Good Omens will air on BBC 2 in the U.K. and on Amazon Video in the U.S. in 2019.last_img read more
