Two game modders who go by the handles MrBean and Chadderz have created what they’ve deemed the “Accio Master Code,” a hack for the Wii U version of Breath of the Wild that allows any object in the game to be spawned anywhere.

Agents of SHIELD

Agents Of SHIELD Shoved To Fridays Next Fall

by Peter Paltridgeon May 16, 2017
It’s been a bumpy few years, but as of Season 4, Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD has finally become compelling, must-watch television. So naturally ABC picked this time to bury it on Friday evenings at 9 PM. We should be happy we get a Season 5 at all, but this makes us uneasy. Adding insult to […]

H.R. Giger’s Alien Nearly Got Its Own Saturday Morning Cartoon

by Peter Paltridgeon May 16, 2017
Alien: Covenant isn’t the first time a famous drooling black buglike thing is going to be exploited for profit, nor will it be the last.

NBC’s “Timeless” Cancelled, Then Uncancelled

by Peter Paltridgeon May 13, 2017
This season, four time travel shows on separate networks went head-to-head and cancelled each other out — literally. ABC’s Time After Time, Fox’s Making History, CW’s Frequency and NBC’s Timeless all debuted around the same time and caused instant fatigue for viewers. One timey-wimey show might have been able to succeed on its own, but […]

Perfectly Preserved Dinosaur Looks Like A Statue

by Peter Paltridgeon May 12, 2017
A very interesting fossil was officially revealed to the public today at Canada’s Royal Tyrrell Museum of Paleontology. It looks like a statue, but it isn’t. It’s an actual dinosaur, hardened into stone — and it’s one of the clearest looks we’ve ever gotten at prehistoric life. The beast is a nodosaur, a cousin of the […]

by Peter Paltridgeon May 10, 2017
The CW broke a lot of cancellation/renewal notices this afternoon, but let’s focus on the two Popgeeks readers most likely care about the most: Black Lighting (a fifth Berlanti DC superhero series) and iZombie. Black Lighting has been greenlit for its first season; iZombie has been renewed for a fourth. There wasn’t much of a […]

Rogue One Characters Join The Rebellion…Tabletop Game

by Peter Paltridgeon May 9, 2017
Remember a movie called Rogue One? Soon you’ll be able to boost the Star Wars Rebellion tabletop game with the Rise of the Empire expansion — which for the most part adds Rogue One characters and elements to the game. Oddly it isn’t called “the Rogue One expansion” even though it is essentially this. Jabba […]
