This one I felt like I had to exclude from the article I made last week because honestly, its a little too tin-foil hat-y for my tastes. To subscribe to my theory would take several leaps of logic, grasping at straws and several jabs at happenstance. But on the off-chance that you’re fine with all of that, then down the rabbit hole we go.
About halfway through the movie “Logan”, Professor Xavier and Laura are enjoying a bit of downtime in a hotel room in Oklahoma. They are shown watching an old Western movie as Xavier remarks to Laura that this was a “Classic” and an important piece of cinema. The old film also seems to tie-in to the films ending with Laura reciting the what seems to be lines from the film in its ending sequence.

Here’s a blast from the past for all you 90’s kids! Funny Komiks’ classic character Combatron is getting a videogame!
At the recently concluded ESGS 2016, local studio Ranida Games took to the stage to announce that they are currently developing a videogame based on the familiar blue cyborg, Combatron. The character rose to popularity in the early 90’s when its stories were published in the local comicbook serial, Funny Komiks. The komiks tells the tale of a young boy named Empoy who inherits a powerful cybernetic armor from an injured alien warrior called Combatron. Empoy also takes the mantle of the fallen warrior and fights evil alien invaders looking to subjugate the Earth.
Combatron’s creator Berlin Manalaysay has already given his approval in using the character and will working closely with the team at Ranida Games to make sure the game will be as good and as true to the original comicbook as it can possibly be.
At the moment, Ranida Games hasn’t disclosed what genre the game is going to be so we’ll have to keep an ear out for news and bring you updates when we get it. For now, enjoy this teaser trailer that Ranida has released featuring sample art of how the graphics of the game might look like.
