The Hunger Catching Fire is set break box office records once again as it will almost certainly scorch any other competition this weekend.  So go bust out that wallet and enjoy some Buttery popcorn, Extra snacks & drink of choice as you feast your eyes on another blockbuster masterpiece this Holiday Season.

The film begins with Jennifer Lawrence AKA Katniss Everdeen returning home safe after just winning the 74th Annual Hunger Games.  Her partner in crime Peeta Mellark &  close enemy Liam Hemsworth both return among others to join Katniss as they are forced to fight for their lives once again in the 75th Annual “Victor’s Tour”.

The 2nd installment of Hunger Games  – A Lions Gate Film features a new director: Francis Lawrence

The reviews are positive for the most part & most critics agree that this movie has a chance to surpass the $175 Million dollar opening weekend.  The first Hunger Games did not disappoint  in the long run. (Although we didn’t love the computer generated killer wolf dogs at the end)  Either way it’s very clear the this epic franchise is picking up some serious steam as fans continue to show their love on social media and early box office projections.  Don’t miss out on the best Holiday released movie of 2013.

Good Luck to all of you this weekend and …. “May The Odds Be Ever In Your Favor!”

xBox 360 Injustice God’s Among Us DC Universe Video Game Is A Smash Hit For Super Hero And Fighting Fans + Chicago Toy Shop Top 10 Injustice Characters

Our Chicago Toy Shop ‘CTSVG’ Score For ‘Injustice Gods Among Us’ on the xBox 360 = 7.9 Overall.  The massive online DC Universe & Fighting community has spoken: By unanimous decision: ‘Injustice’ = Pretty Freakin’ Awesome!!

With 24 DC Universe characters to choose from – There is plenty of opportunity to find which character fits you best.

Which character you bring to the arena will ultimately decide your fate if both opponents are equally matched in overall skill.   Below we have included some high quality ‘Nerd Stats’ &  Injustice Character’ different attributes & advantage that our highly skilled team believes are worth noting:

Epice Superman Batman Battle Cool Effects Injustice Video GameThe Chicago Toy Shop Top 10 Injustice Characters:

  1. Green Lantern
  2. Superman
  3. The Flash
  4. Lex Luthor
  5. Batman
  6. Aquaman
  7. Sinestro
  8. Bane
  9. The Joker
  10. Catwoman – Shazam (TIED)

Injustice Green Lantern Solo First Pick Ranking

  • Green Lantern – Hal Jordan: (CTS Top 3 ) Green Lantern’s ‘Will’ To Win is very strong: Witnessing your father die in a plane crash when your just a kid will do that.  The ability to face your fears and overcome them with great force is a big advantage in the super hero world. When you combo that with the speed, the ability to fly & creating powerful objects made of pure energy = Top (3) Character: Injustice God’s Among Us.  Our favorite movie is the Lantern’s Might.
  • The Flash – Barry Allen: (CTS Top 3) We believe: “Knowledge Is Power” When you are a border-line genius forensic scientist & you get hit by lightning while you’re working; Chances are you’ll either become a very successful super hero or die instantly.  In addition to all those interesting facts, Barry’s mother was murdered without the killer being identified or caught.  The Flash can zip around the screen, upper cut your face and finish his laundry all before you realize what hit you!
  • Lex Luthor:(CTS Top 3) Lex Luthor was known as: ‘The Big Man On Campus’ before Superman came to town.  According to most super hero experts & Lex himself;  He’s one of the most brilliant & creative minds to hit the DC Universe.  He was a huge hit among kids and parents until his ego & jealously towards Superman was enough to classify him as a ‘Bad Guy’ for life.  The ability to look the other way and do whatever is necessary to win & succeed is an admirable attribute to have when you are trying to hurt – kill your opponent.  Lex Luthor uses his own high-tech suit in order to take full advantage of his true intelligence.  Lex’s suit is very powerful: He can push you, pull you, crush you, shoot you & anything else he wants to by the time you think about your next move.

By all mean’s we have a lot of other ‘favorites’ but you can’t always fit them in – There’s plenty of interesting characters to choose from & the replay value is fairly high. All 3 Options are pretty decent for ‘Injustice: Gods Among Us’ Whether you are playing versus: The Computer | Online Multi-Player | Friend Vs. Friend You are almost guaranteed to have a good time. (Unless you’re a complete Noob & your fighting game skills are still at a 5th grade level)

Dexter Season 8 The Final Season The Final Symphony Dexter Showtime June 30th Season 8 Premiere

Dexter Morgan is one of our favorite television characters ever created.  Since the show first debuted in October 2006, Michael C. Hall and the rest of the ‘Miami Metro Police Team’ have been hunting down notorious serial killers & solving a lot of blood spatter puzzles along the way.  Whether you support or are against “Dexter’s Code’ … The votes are in:

Dexter and his crew have been nominated for 25 Emmy Awards, Winning 4 so far & Michael C. Hall has also taken home the prestigious Golden Globe Award.  Dexter continues to set records and we anticipate a spectacular finish to one of our favorite shows in a long time.

Dexter Season 8 Showtime's Original Series Season 8 Premier June 30th, 2013

Dexter Season 8 Finale June 30th On Showtime

As huge Dexter fans ourselves: We personally love the narrative style along with all the great Hollywood cameo’s of actors & actresses playing the part of Dexter’s Most Wanted Killers throughout any given season.  Showtime has announced their highly popular serial killer will be back in action on June 30th, 2013.  Season 8 is being dubbed as ‘The Final Symphony’ according to the Internet.

The Ultimate Question That No One Wants To Answer: Will Dexter Die?

It’s a shame that Dexter has to come to a close – But we are at the edge of our seats with excitement and have a ton of questions that need to be answered!  Will Dexter be able to find peace in time in order to save himself & everyone else around him?  Will his sister Deb. become a ‘Partner In Crime’ and help Dexter keep his secret safe forever?

Season 8 is going to be flat out nuts and we can not wait to see what the writers have in store for a finale.  Which was your favorite Dexter Season, Favorite ‘Good Guy’ Vs. ‘Bad-Guy’ Or Even Your Favorite: ‘Dexter Kill’ Of All Time?

We’d love to hear what you the fans think.  Let us know your opinions on the upcoming season & share any other fun Dexter stats, photos, creations or anything else you’d like to share with us.

From the articles and light research we’ve done on SimCity – It sounds like the game will be very intricate and challenging & that’s the way we like it!  With upgraded controls, graphics, attention to detail, building options, town upgrades and the overall progression of PC games as a whole – We are definitely pumped and ready for SimCity to release in less that 24 hours.  Looking for more SimCity reviews, videos, screen shots & inside information?  Then you might want to head on over to one of our favorite websites for video games, movies, and general nerd news & updates:  SimCity For The PC Via IGN

As for Tomb Raider – See our #3 ranking above to follow through on some IGN.Com reviews.  Odds are if you liked the old Tomb Raider video games. This latest rendition of Tomb Raider will almost certainly meet & surpass most ‘gamers’ expectations. From the casual Lara Croft fan – All the way to the Tomb Raider / Lara Croft online creep & ‘Real life secret admirer’.

Everyone is busy these days we get it; But it’s okay, Go grab you and your significant other (21+) some cold ones and kick your feet up because  you’ve fucking earned it! Everyone has at least 1-2 hours every a week to check out some great new video games & movies.
