Here’s An Hour Of 80s Video Game Commercials You May Have Forgotten About

The 80s were, at one time, known as an iconic era for video games. Now that we're living in an era where even the most modest budgets for development can make PS1 level graphics, the 80s era of gaming has mostly faded into obscurity. Sure, you may remember the big hits, but are you going to remember every game commercial featured in this hour long compilation? Watch the video below to find out!

FYI: Charlie The Unicorn Was Created 10 Years Ago

When I think of old internet videos, I think of stuff I used to watch on Newgrounds, or like Homestar Runner. Never in a million years would I have thought Charlie The Unicorn was 10 years old, and now that I know that, I can feel the wrinkles setting in on my face. Ok, maybe it's not quite that dramatic, but it's hilarious to think how big of a deal this was on the internet so long ago and now the world has practically forgotten about it. Check it out below for nostalgia, and let us know if you're still repping Charlie The Unicorn to this day:

Life is a film that, I think, didn't get nearly as much attention as it should. It wasn't the best film around, although I think 2017 was just such a strong year for films it just kind of got lost in the mix and would've done much better in other years. Anyway, a VFX breakdown for the film's various effects has hit the web, and you might want to check it out if you've got love for this film. Check it out and let us know what you think:

Walmart Might Be Looking Into Launching A Streaming Service

Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon have dominated the streaming game for quite a while now, but they soon may have to compete with one of their fiercest adversaries yet. Walmart has toppled most mom and pop grocery stores across America, and it's looking like they're going to attempt the same thing with streaming according to some reported info.

Variety says Walmart is looking into creating a streaming service that caters to "middle America," with a price point around $8. Apparently, Netflix and Amazon are more popular in coastal states, which is why Walmart is thinking it can maintain a foothold in the Midwest and South with a new service. Walmart has denied comment on the reports, although the company is already in the streaming game with Vudu, which it acquired in 2010.

As someone in the Midwest with Netflix who frequently talks to a lot of other midwesterners with Netflix, I'm kind of confused by the logic here, but I'll never say no to a high-quality streaming service. Let's just hope it's jam-packed with great movies, as that seems to be a rare find in the big dog streaming companies these days.

Science Says Your Earliest Memory You Have May Not Have Happened

The first thing I ever experienced was me waking up in my car seat. I stood up out of the seat in my childhood living room, walked around the room in a circle, and then fell back asleep in my car seat. The next thing I remember is visiting my uncle and going to Disney World which, I'm guessing, happened a couple years later when I was 4. 

I often account that memory as the first time I was aware of my surroundings, but now I'm learning that may not have happened, and much like our dreams, many of our first memories were a complete fabrication. The news comes from a study (via Engadget) performed on 6,000 volunteers, who were asked to recall as vividly as possible their first memory and the age it happened. What scientists found was that a majority of people listed their first memory as happening around age 2 or before, which according to science, isn't possible. Most humans don't form long-term memories until the age of 3 and a half, and even then most of our early memories about our childhood are gone by the time we reach third grade. Basically, you may think you know your earliest memory, but it's far more likely it's something you've held onto that your brain made up a long time ago. 

The weird thing is scientists found the implausible stories happened much more often with people above the age of 25. A possible explanation is that at that age, we've heard stories from our parents or seen pictures of ourselves when we were little, and seeing those images create false memories of things we remember but don't actually remember. 

I don't know about you guys, but this is far too trippy for me to take in. I think I'm better off just assuming every thing I remember as a kid actually happened as opposed to questioning which parts of my childhood did and didn't happen.

Out of curiosity, what's your earliest memory, and has this study convinced you it didn't happen?

Watch: Two Guys Cut A Boat In Half To See If Flex Tape Will Keep It Afloat

If you've ever found yourself watching television late-night, early morning, or midday, you've probably seen an ad for Flex Tape. It's described to be a magical tape that's so waterproof, you can cut a boat in half and not have to worry about drowning if you fix that cut with the tape. It's a little hard to believe, so these two guys put it to the test. Surprise, surprise, it didn't work completely, although it did a far better job than you might believe!

Check out the video below, and give these young dudes a round of applause for a well shot video and decent editing:

Wicked Cool Full Trailer For The Russo Bros. New Series DEADLY CLASS

wicked-cool-full-trailer-for-the-russo-bros-new-series-deadly-class-social.jpg

The SyFy Channel has released the full trailer for their new series Deadly Class, which comes from the directors of Avengers: Infinity War, Joe and Anthony Russo. This series looks pretty awesome and it gives me hope that the Syfy Channel is going to start developing some good stuff for us to watch again.

Deadly Class is based on the Image Comics property created by Rick Remender and Wes Craig. This is the synopsis that was released for it.

The series is set in a dark, comic book world against the backdrop of late 1980s counter culture. It follows a homeless teen recruited into a storied elite private school where the world’s top crime families send their next generations. Maintaining his moral code while surviving a ruthless curriculum, vicious social cliques, and his own adolescent uncertainties soon proves to be vital.

Joe Russo previously said this about the series:

"Deadly Class is one of the more twisted coming-of-age stories we’ve ever read. It does an amazing job of exploring teenage years and the sense of alienation that you feel. The first time we read the book we were blown away. That’s why we’re standing here working on the show."

Anthony Russo continues:

"There’s a mix of a lot of different sensibilities spanning everything from our more intense action work in Captain America: The Winter Soldier to like some of our more absurdist sensibilities."

The series stars Benedict Wong (Doctor Strange), Benjamin Wadsworth (Teen Wolf), Lana Condor (X-Men: Apocalypse, Alita: Battle Angel), Maria Gabriela de Faria (Yo Soy Franky, Sitiados), Luke Tennie (Shock and Awe), Liam James (The Way Way Back, The Killing) and Michel Duval (Señora Acero, Queen of the South).

Deadly Class is set to premiere in 2019.

I've been pretty excited about Matt Groening's upcoming fantasy-comedy Netflix series Disenchantment. Now today we have the first trailer for you to watch and as you'll see it looks hilarious! I can't wait to watch this series!

In Disenchantment, viewers will be whisked away to the crumbling medieval kingdom of Dreamland, where they will follow the misadventures of hard-drinking young princess Bean, her feisty elf companion Elfo, and her personal demon Luci. Along the way, the oddball trio will encounter ogres, sprites, harpies, imps, trolls, walruses, and lots of human fools.

The series stars Abbi Jacobson (Broad City) as Bean, Nat Faxon (Tammy) as Elfo and Eric Andre (The Lion King) as Luci. They will be joined by John DiMaggio, Billy West, Maurice LaMarche, Tress MacNeille, David Herman, Matt Berry, Jeny Batten, Rich Fulcher, Noel Fielding, and Lucy Montgomery.

The 10-episode first season set to premiere on the streaming service on August 17, 2018.

The Flash Gets His Flash Ring in Trailer For THE FLASH Season 5

The CW has released the trailer for The Flash Season 5 and it gives us an exciting look at what's in store for our favorite characters! One of the cooler things that we see in the trailer Barry Allen getting his Flash Ring! 

It's been reported that Chris Klein (Election, Oz, American Pie) is set to play Cicada, next season’s Central City villain. "A grizzled, blue-collar everyman whose family has been torn apart by metahumans, Cicada now seeks to exterminate the epidemic — one metahuman at a time."

Matching wits with The Thinker, who by season’s end had harnessed the powers of all twelve bus metas he created, stretched Team Flash to their limits, but with the help of some new allies, Barry Allen (aka The Flash) and company were able to put a stop to the Enlightenment and save Central City once again. However, with the arrival of Barry and Iris’ speedster daughter, Nora, who arrived from the future admitting to having made a “big mistake,” things are anything but status quo. Will parenthood be the challenge that finally slows The Flash down?

The Flash stars Grant Gustin as Barry Allen/The Flash, Candice Patton as Iris West, Danielle Panabaker as Caitlin Snow, Carlos Valdes as Cisco Ramo, Hartley Sawyer as Ralph Dibny, Jessica Parker Kennedy as Nora West-Allen aka the speedster hero XS, Danielle Nicolet as Cecile Horton with Tom Cavanagh as Dr. Harrison Wells, and Jesse L. Martin as Detective Joe West.

The Flash premieres on Tuesday, October 9, on The CW.

It's crazy to think that Arrow has actually gone for seven seasons! This is one of the DC shows that lost me after Season 4, one day I'll catch up, but I keep hearing from people that it's not worth it. For those of you, who are still on board and enjoy ing the show, here's the trailer for Season 7 that premiered at Comic-Con. I will say that this trailer looks good and it does make me what to get caught up.

There has been no shortage of close calls for Oliver Queen when it comes to protecting his Super Hero identity, but in the season six finale, he was finally backed into a corner and forced to reveal himself to the world as the Green Arrow. Now, Oliver will come face-to-face with many of the criminals he placed behind bars, as he makes a new home for himself at Slabside Maximum Security Prison. Oliver will find himself vulnerable in a way unlike ever before when a mysterious new enemy begins to unravel his work as Green Arrow, challenging him to redeem his name or risk losing everything.

Arrow stars Stephen Amell as Oliver Queen, David Ramsey as John Diggle, and Emily Bett Rickards as Felicity Smoak. Colton Haynes returns as Roy Harper for the new season after being absent from the series.
