“You know, it’s times like these when I realize what a superhero I am.”

On this week’s show: Marvel and DC both make huge announcements about their futures, Gotham and Flash are both fast hits, and we look back at two legendary movies that came out 20 years ago this week.

Android L Release Teased

For those of you who can’t wait for Google to release Android L, you are not alone. In fact, I’m starting to go crazy while I wait for it to show up on my Nexus 5 and my Nexus 7. Sadly, I know that even after it’s released, it will possibly still be a few days, if not weeks before my devices get to taste of that new L goodness. Well, that’s if I wait for the OTA update. Thankfully, there’s always side loading.

Anyways, as if to only make my torment more… tormenting, Google has released a short video teasing the name of the heretofore unnamed Android L. Will it be Lemon Meringue Pie as many have speculated? What about Licorice or Lollipop? Lava Cake? Mmm… lava cake… Has anyone considered Lady Finger? Hadn’t considered that one but I’m not even sure what a “lady finger” is. I’m guessing it’s got something to do with beautiful hands, but I could be wrong.

All that being said, it looks like we will be getting our answers tomorrow when the Nexus 9 and Android L are released. According to Forbes, “a source close to Google” has confirmed that the Nexus 9 running  Android L will be announced tomorrow via a blog post. Originally Google had planned to hold an official event, but decided against a ‘big reveal’ since they were still fine tuning Android L. Of course, Google could just skip the Nexus 9 and jump straight to the Nexus 10, but they’ve already released a Nexus 10 and skipping numbers is more of a Microsoft thing…

Should the rumors and the teasing prove true, I guess we’ll get all of our answers, and hopefully a new version of Android sometime tomorrow. If not, then I’ll continue to wait and hope for an official build to “leak” into the wild.

Sonic.EXE – Gamer Review

Ever sit down and watch a scary movie that you’ve seen several times and eventually you get to that part where you know something’s coming, yet you freak out about it anyways? That’s how I felt when I played Sonic today. Yes, you heard me, that blue hedgehog that made several of us the gamers we are today. But this version’s very different, it’s called Sonic.EXE, a twisted version of our favorite childhood classic game created by Creepypasta that seriously creeps you out as you play it. I’ve seen several YouTubers playing it before and finally decided that I needed to download the game and try it for myself and find out how I would react while playing this game.

Demonic SonicSonic.EXE starts out with the classic Sonic the Hedgehog SEGA cover and for a split second you see the image change and think “was that what I think it was”, and the answer would be yes, a horrifically depicted Sonic, blackened eyes with blood running down from them. All you can think of is what you just signed yourself up for. The screen then cuts into a character selection menu, but two of them are locked and you’re forced to choose Tails who at this point looks normal. Once loaded into the game you notice the familiar first level of the original game, but the music is altered into an eerie track that constantly repeats itself throughout the game. I begin to send Tails
