Spartacus: Vengeance – Full Trailer

Starz has released the full trailer for the upcoming season of Spartacus, titled Vengeance, which you can view above. The show returns in January. I love the series, but as good as the trailer looks, I still have some concerns. It's unfortunate that Andy Whitfield got cancer and isn't able to return as Spartacus, as he was a great Spartacus. It's going to take a while to see this new guy (Liam McIntyre) in the role. My biggest concern is the lack of John Hannah as Batiatus. While it's great that Lucy Lawless will be returning to her role Lucretia, which I was worried that she wouldn't after the ending of season one, I will definitely miss Batiatus. The prequel series Gods of the Arena was like a cruel treat in that regard, as it only served to show what exactly the series will be … [Read more...]

Free “Myths and Mavericks” DLC Coming To Red Dead Redemption in September

Need a reason to go back to the Old West in the fantastic open world of Red Dead Redemption? Well besides the game just being awesome and one that NEVER gets old? If so, you're in luck. Rockstar is unleashing some bonus, fan appreciation DLC in September called Myths & Mavericks. It truly is fan appreciation, as this DLC will cost you zero cents. That's right, it's FREE. The DLC is completely multiplayer related.

We expect the … [Read more...]

TeenNick’s The 90s Are All That

^ That's my new favorite video and "song." I've been watching this two hour block of CLASSIC 90s Nickelodeon since Tuesday (yeah, I missed day one), and I've been enjoying every minute of it. All That isn't quite as funny as I found it when I was a kid, but it's still enjoyable. I've seen a lot of people hating on Clarissa Explains It All, and I just don't understand it. Clarissa is a great show, and easily the best show Melissa Joan Hart has ever done (and I did like Sabrina). Can't wait until they start showing Are You Afraid of the Dark?, Secret World of Alex Mack, Catdog, Adventures of Pete & Pete, Guts, and Rugrats (amongst others, I dig the whole line up really). Really hope Angry Beavers and Figure It Out show up at some point as well; I loved those shows. … [Read more...]

Ron Paul’s Urgent Warning

Watch, or more importantly LISTEN, to the above video. And yes, next year, vote for this man in the primaries and then in the general election. … [Read more...]

Site Note

Things have slowed down a little here at The Vortex Effect, mostly due to people being busy with other things, like work or pumping an insane amount of time into NCAA Football 12, but business will be picking back up around here pretty soon. Things that are for sure coming soon include more wrestling and video game coverage, and I mean a lot more ORIGINAL and EXCLUSIVE content not just news. More movie reviews/entertainment news, and more videos and political postings (but not too much of those). As far as any politics are concerned, I'll put the disclaimer here: This site is ran by a staff who the majority of which support Dr. Ron Paul. With there being important issues, and campaign season, our political posts and videos (like the one that will be posted next) will almost always be … [Read more...]

WATCH: Ultimate Broski Footage From Sunday Night’s WWE Raw Live Event!

Sunday night's Raw brand live event concluded with a fan-friendly finishing move montage. This is standard fare, in a manner of speaking, so why mention this particular show closer? Because amongst the Adjusting of Attitudes and the dialings of Californian area codes was included an Ultimate Splash from the Ultimate Broski himself, Zack Ryder. Woo Woo Woo. You know it!   … [Read more...]

Ron Paul To Congress: If Debt Is The Problem, Why Do You Want More Of It?

In the above video, you'll see and hear Rep. Ron Paul hit Congress with some logic and common sense regarding the debt of the US, out of control spending, and the problem with both political parties and their so called "solutions." I can't help but laugh at those who think the debt is a problem and the solution in the short term is simply raise the ceiling and add more to it. The very idea of countering debt by adding more to it is beyond stupid. It's no surprise that Dr. Paul is the one of the only ones (and easily the lead figure) that is actually talking sense about the debt and understands it and economics. American's screwed up in 2008 by electing Obama (and Republicans by nominating McCain) instead of Paul. Hopefully a larger percentage of voters won't be so stupid (fat chance) … [Read more...]

Video: CM Punk confronts HHH at comic con.

Just have to pipe in with some fantasy booking here right now. I know Trips is probably still wanting his rematch with Taker, but honestly, at this point, Punk/HHH would be a better choice of match I think. Punk is the biggest rising star in eons right now, and the Game putting him over at Mania 28 would just be perfect. Short of Punk/Austin, it's the most special thing I could think to do with Punk right now. … [Read more...]
