First trailer for “Doctor Who: The Eternity Clock” video game debuts

Whovians rejoiced last week when the first image from “Doctor Who: The Eternity Clock” arrived online, and now there’s even more reason for celebration among “Doctor Who” fans with the debut of the game’s first trailer.

Posted over on the official PlayStation Blog, the first trailer for “The Eternity Clock” puts the spotlight on the aliens the famous Time Lord — and his companion, River Song — will be battling across time and space. The 85-second video also offers the first look at the gameplay mechanics, which look to be set firmly in the linear, platformer style.

According to Simon Harris, Executive Producer on the game for BBC Worldwide, the four alien races that will challenge The Doctor and River will include the modern-era villains known as The Silence, as well as classic villains Cybermen, Silurians and Daleks. In some cases, the aliens will even receive a few tweaks that the television series’ team intended to make, but were never able to fully realize on the show.

“The art team at Supermassive were getting really positive feedback on how the monsters looked, which was great, and the Doctor Who team then asked if we could make some changes that deviated from the reference photos,” wrote Harris. “It turns out that there were a number of small tweaks which the team would have loved to make to the designs of the monsters on the show, but had been unable to for various reasons. At this point they saw the opportunity to make these tweaks in our monster designs. Of course, we were more than happy to include these amendments.”

In the new video, all four races are represented, and after we see The Doctor and River running, jumping, climbing, and elevator-riding their way around the game’s environment, the trailer closes to the tune of an impressively creepy children’s song.

Oh, and Harris also mentions that The Silence were added later in the development process, and prompted the removal of a different alien threat — something he promises will make an appearance “in a future game.” Our money’s on the Weeping Angels.

Here’s the trailer:

“Doctor Who: The Eternity Clock” is scheduled to hit shelves in March for PlayStation 3 and Playstation Vita.

Final Countdown

The Best Of The Last

Portlandia Goes Out With A Bang

Posted by on

The end is near. In mere days Portlandia wraps up its final season, and oh what a season it’s been. Lucky for you, you can watch the entire season right now right here and on the IFC app, including this free episode courtesy of Subaru.

But now, let’s take a moment to look back at some of the new classics Fred and Carrie have so thoughtfully bestowed upon us. (We’ll be looking back through tear-blurred eyes, but you do you.)

Couples Dinner

It’s not that being single sucks, it’s that you suck if you’re single.

Cancel it!

A sketch for anyone who has cancelled more appointments than they’ve kept. Which is everyone.

Forgotten America

This one’s a “Serial” killer…everything both right and wrong about true crime podcasts.

Wedding Planners

The only bad wedding is a boring wedding.

Disaster Hut

It’s only the end of the world if your doomsday kit doesn’t include rosé.

Rev Up

Your Portlandia Personality Test

The New Portlandia Webseries Is Going Your Way

Posted by on

Carrie and Fred understand that although we have so much in common, we’re each so beautifully unique and different. To help us navigate those differences, Portlandia has found an easy and honest way to embrace our special selves in the form of a progressive new traffic system: a specific lane for every kind of driver. It’s all in honor of the show’s 8th and final season, and it’s all presented by Subaru.

Ready to find out who you really are? Match your personality to a lane and hop on the expressway to self-understanding.

Lane 10: Trucks Piled With Junk

Your junk is falling out of your trunk. Shake a tail light, people — this lane is for you.

Lane 33: Twins

You’re like a Gemini, but waaaay more pedestrian. Maybe you and a friend just wear the same outfits a lot. Who cares, it’s just twinning enough to make you feel special.

Lane 27: Broken Windows

Bad luck follows you around and everyone knows it. Your proverbial seat is always damp from proverbial rain. Is this the universe telling you to swallow your pride? Yes.

Lane 69: Filthy Cars

You’re all about convenience. Getting your car washed while you drive is a no-brainer.

Lane 43: Newly Divorced Singles

It’s been a while since you’ve driven alone, and you don’t know the rules of the road anymore. What’s too fast? What’s too slow? Are you sending the right signals? Don’t worry, the breakdown lane is nearby if you need it.

Still can’t find a lane to match your personality? Check out all the videos here. And see the final season of Portlandia this spring on IFC.
