Total War: Rome II – The Battle of Teutoburg Forest

Games

In 9AD, Teutoburg Forest was the scene of a crushing defeat for the Empire. Masterminded by Arminius, the son of a Germanic chieftain taken as a child and raised as a hostage in Rome, the battle saw his betrayal of the Roman general Varus.

Arminius united the tribes, ambushed Varus’ Legion and struck a fatal and shattering blow to the Empire’s expansion.

Teutoburg Forest features as a playable historical battle in Total War: ROME II, and demonstrates some of the game’s thrilling new features, including our true line-of-sight system, deployable battlefield technology, and our tense new style of ambush scenarios.

It looks like things are finally being put in motion to get a Super Troopers sequel going. I like the first movie quite a bit and it is a great one to watch with friends. I would like to see the return of these characters and it would most likely be just what the Broken Lizard crew need to get back on the radar.

Keven Heffernan who played Farva in Super Troopers recently spoke to Guy Speed and had the following to say:

“There will be a Super Troopers sequel. We put it off for a while and then came back to it. We wrote the script and handed in to Fox and now we’re just negotiating the time and the place and hopefully shoot it some time this year. I have to start growing my mustache now.”

Here is the first official look at the new costume for the title character in The Amazing Spider-Man sequel.Last week director Marc Webb teased some changes to the new costume including bigger eyes this time around. While this is not a look at the entirety of the costume it does show significant change from the stylized choices of the original and looks more like the costume worn in the Sam Raimi Spider-Man movies. I’m sure we will get a better look in the enar future but for now we can assume a more classic Spidey appearance is what we are getting for the next film.
