With the announcement of Warner Bros. partnering with IMAX to launch a Virtual Reality experience, you too can be The Batman, thanks to the new Justice League VR!
Fans all over the world can outrace the bad guys as The Dark Knight! We can battle Steppenwolf’s Parademons as Wonder Woman, fight creatures from the depths as Aquaman, disrupt enemy tech as Cyborg, and defuse bombs as The Flash!
This exciting new experience is scheduled to launch in four stages. The first – called the Justice League VR: Join the League – Gillette Edition – will take place before the movie’s release on November 17th 2017. It will culminate with the home based Justice League VR: The Complete Experience.
The app will be available as a free download from Google Play for Android and the Apple App Store for iPhones starting on September 7th. You can also find it at JusticeLeaguethemovie.com/VR.

FINALLY! Well readers, Spoiler season has begun. Wizards teased us so heavily on the 19th with Vona's Hunger, but now we've finally seen the first of what Rivals of Ixalan has to offer. River Darter is, I think, intended for Draft, along the same lineage as Audacious Infiltrator. Thrashing Brontodon is also very good in Limited, being able to pop Pious Interdictions or Ixalan's Bindings, but may even see sideboard play in Dinosaur decks in Constructed to remove Cast Out, God Pharaoh's Gift or Gearhulks.
Article by Scott Hamilton I was recommended the good Professor whilst trawling around Spotify looking for new artists to listen to. I spend a lot of time travelling to and from work each day, so I’m always looking for something new and different to listen to. This splendid chap certainly ended up ticking all of my geek boxes. Professor Elemental is based in Brighton and trades in a very English take on Hip-Hop called Chap-Hop. The only way I can describe him is a polite Eminem, raised by the Monty Python team in a comic written by Jules Verne and illustrated by Jack Kirby. It’s certainly a niche market.

In fact, his first breakthrough was with the single “Cup of Brow…
Rob Lane provides the bottom end in Ryan Hamilton and the Traitors. Onstage he’s a blur of hair,
throwing shapes with his trusty bass like a full on rock star. Away from the
band, he heads up his own project Straight
To Video, a mix of rock/punk music which draws influence from eighties
culture in general, as well as creating some cool merchandise to go along with
the music. Rob was cool enough to chat to us recently about
music, the eighties and being a geek.
Scott Hamilton: Would
you like to tell us a bit about yourself Rob? Rob Lane: Hey
Scott.... Thanks so much for reaching out! So, I guess I start with introducing
myself.... my name's Rob Lane... a bass player from the East Midlands /
Nottingham / Derby area. I've been actively playing with various bands for the
best part of 20 years. For over ten years I was the bassist for Nottingham
