Well, Night Owls! I promised that we’d have another Night Shift after E3, though I thought it might be earlier. Oh well, I’m sure you can all forgive me! No? Oh well! Let’s move on!
First up on the agenda, and most recent, ‘The Voice‘ season 4 has unveiled its champion, the youngest winner in the show’s history, Danielle Bradbury, with Michelle Chamuel and The Swon Brothers coming in second and third place respectively. This was an expected turnout, but like Savion Wright of TheVoicePredictions on Tumblr said:
It…shouldn’t be a surprise… She’s blonde…pretty, and white. And the most profitable of the 3. They are going to tie her down with that singing contract and work her like a puppet….
Regardless of how the season turned out, I personally wouldn’t be surprised if we find out in a few months that Michelle got picked up by Usher, like he did with Justin Bieber. I guess time will tell.
This past weekend, as well as this weekend are prime weekends for movies! Last week, “This is the End” released, while the weekend held a somewhat tumultuous release of “Man of Steel,” which was reviewed twice on Pixcelation. This weekend, we’ve got “World War Z,” about Brad Pitt in the Zombie Apocalypse. Rumor has it that it doesn’t follow the book by Max Brooks very well, but what adaptation really does anymore?
“Monsters University,” the long awaited prequel to the Disney/Pixar series also releases this weekend, on Friday. While many, including myself, are saying that a prequel isn’t needed because we all know that Mike and Sulley become friends eventually, I believe that Disney/Pixar will make this a movie worth seeing in theaters.

Since the last Night Shift, LOTS of content has been posted on Pixcelation by our wonderful team of writers. Be sure to drop on by and comment if you like their work! I wrote a review of “Assassin’s Creed III,” which was previously posted on our parent site Nova Scriptorum, a review of “Dark Skies,” “inFAMOUS 2,” and I announced where fans could see the latest from E3 2013, and talked about CBoaT’s encoded predictions; Andrew Korkmas reviewed “Parker,” “Silent Hill: Revelation,” “Silent Hill: Downpour,” “The Expendables 2,” “A Haunted House,” “Looper,” ; Bannister Chaava reviewed the indie-game “Gunpoint,” analyzed what he expected from E3, and talked about the ironically leaked trailer to the upcoming game “Watch Dogs.”; Collins Adams wrote a retrospective on the entire “Doctor Who” series from its early beginnings to the present day, and Kelly Kling reviewed “Nintendo Land” for the Wii U.
We’ve also had a LOT of counter-reviews going on lately, which is something that we treasure. “The Purge” was reviewed by both Andrew Korkmas as well as Collins Adams; “Now You See Me,” which was reviewed a short time ago by Andrew Korkmas was countered by Nick Behrens; and “Man of Steel” was reviewed by myself as well as Andrew Korkmas. Continuing the E3 coverage, both myself as well as Bannister Chaava and Nick Behrens all offered our own take on the E3 conferences between Sony and Microsoft, Jason Norris, in his glorious return from hiatus talked about the new entry in the “Legend of Zelda” series, detailed the E3 Nintendo Direct Show, and delivered not only one, but TWO doses of Pokenews. Bannister Chaava detailed the Director’s Cut trailer of “Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain,” while Andrew Korkmas reviewed “Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance” and Nick Behrens reviewed “Remember Me.” Jason Norris took a satirical look at the addition of “The Villager” to the new “Super Smash Bros” for Wii U and Nintendo 3DS, while I promoted the indie-series looking to raise some money, “The Perjurer.” And finally, catching us up to the present, I took a look at Sony’s public announcement of the release dates for the third and fourth installment of “The Amazing Spider Man,” and Collins Adams reviewed the TV-show “Continuum.”
ANYWAY, I may be making this a weekly thing, just to relieve some pressure on myself. My life is so hard. (Kidding. xD)
That’s all we have for tonight! Remember to bookmark Pixcelation for the latest in the entertainment news you actually care about!
