    Stan Lee at Wizard World Anaheim Comic Con

    This year at Wizard World Anaheim, Stan Lee kicked things off with a Q&A with himself and famous comic book movie producer, Avi Arad.

Of course the topic of Joss Whedon and the Avengers rumor came up. Both Avi Arad and Stan Lee seem to be in agreement that Joss would be an excellent choice for the Avengers. Arad said, “Joss would do an amazing job. He’s great with characters. Expect someone like him to make the script even better.” Stan Lee discussed that he believes that people that want to be in the comic book business should spend all their time drawing.

    Just Cause 2 DLC Adding Some Boom to Your Air

    Two separate Just Cause 2 DLC packs, releasing on April 29 and May 25, are bringing you some crazy-ridiculous vehicles and weapons that make it a lot easier to play in the vertical playground where everything needs to go boom. (For a review of the game, click here.) Each will be available for $2/160 MS Points – a lot more palatable than something like Modern Warfare 2′s $15 map pack. (Really, why did everyone buy that?) The first release, the “Black Market Aerial Pack,” contains: F-33 Dragon Fly Jet Fighter: a versatile attack aircraft, equipped with twin missiles and quad-mounted mini-guns Multi-lock Missile Launcher: a devastating weapon of destruction featuring laser-guided auto-lock on up to four targets (yes, really – boom!) Parachute Dual Thrusters: twin parachute-mounted jets which transform Rico’s parachute into one of the most nimble and powerful attack platforms. The second pack, entitled the “Black Market Boom Pack,”

    It looks like Netflix is going to have a challenger in the streaming media on demand. As of today, you can downland movie and televisionshows for a 48 hour duration from Youtube. How this service works, is you enter the youtube store, and choose the media that you wish to buy. You pay for the movie though Google checkout and then in seconds you can watch anything from anime, to bollywood or even popular movies like Precious and other new releases. The cost of the Youtube movies and TV episodes can range anywhere from 1 dollar all the way up to and including 4 dollars for a 48 hour rental. Currently the service is only available within the USA.

Well, I’ve already told you it’s a romantic manga so what else do you need to know really? Oh, alright then: Riko Kunimi is trying to lead a normal high school life when Ran Tachibana bursts into her classroom carrying a gun and tells her that her life is now his. Ran, who is the richest and most powerful 17-year-old in Japan, wants her as his wife, and he’s not taking no for an answer! If
