Universal Studios is launching their Dark Universe with The Mummy, now in theaters. First, we talk a bit about The Mummy, including why it’s not as bad as people say, even when looking at the box office numbers. Then it’s on to the Dark Universe with our fan casting! We cast a dozen different characters we expect or want to see in the upcoming Dark Universe movies including the Bride of Frankenstein, Dracula, the Creature from the Black Lagoon, and Van Helsing, plus more.

GH16: Mario Kart 8 Deluxe

Gears of War is getting a feature film, Nintendo Switch gets an NBA Jam style game for cheap, plus our first impressions of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe! We talk about our thoughts for how they could pull off a successful Gears of War movie, comparing it to Resident Evil, Warcraft, and even Lord of the Rings. Then, it’s off to the streets for NBA Playground, a new $19.99 title coming to the Switch on May 9th featuring all kinds of players in a 2-on-2 style. After that, it’s out main topic, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe for the Nintendo Switch. We compare it to the Wii U release, talk new characters, completely overhauled battle mode, and what we loved and didn’t love about Nintendo’s latest game that sold over one million copies in just three days.

1:30 – Gears of War feature film

9:40 – NBA Playgrounds coming to Switch

GH16: Mario Kart 8 Deluxe

So Many Theme Parks!

Last week, Universal Studios announced its new deal with Nintendo to bring new theme parks to life dedicated to Mario, Link, Donkey Kong, and the rest of our favorite characters!  While Universal has created haunted houses based on franchises like Silent Hill and Resident Evil, the world of video games has been largely untapped by way of theme parks as of now.  There have been no official reports of exactly what the park could feature but fans have already begun to speculate actual Mario Kart Go Carts and something dedicated to Splatoon.

This deal is also very unique because Universal plans to build a Nintendo theme park at each of their four locations (Orlando, Hollywood, Singapore, Japan) as well as break ground on a fifth location in Beijing.  This is, of course, a massive undertaking considering Orlando’s Harry Potter’s Wizarding World still remains the only Harry Potter theme park Universal has planned.  The park plans to open in 2021.  I better start planning my vacation now.

Walt Disney World Theme Parks Star Wars Logo

Universal’s largest rival, Disney, has also made enormous theme park plans for some of its newly acquired franchises.  Earlier this year, Disney announced the intention of building a theme park set in the Star Wars universe, in addition to the themed rides already found in Disney World.  Disney chief Bob Iger has reported the intention of the theme park being based on the new films made under the Disney name, including Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens  and Star WarsRogue One.  Since then, the presence of Star Wars has increased tremendously at all of the company’s global locations.

Which of these theme parks are you most looking forward to? Comment below!
