Have you fallen behind on your nerd news? Don’t worry; we’re here to help! Here are a few stories to bring up at the water cooler this week:

A new patent released last week suggests Sony is working on a redesigned Move controller. Not only will it be more ergonomic, but will possibly have interchangeable faceplates, among other features. What do you think of this revamp?

• Are you counting down the days until The Hunger Games: Catching Fire is released? To make that wait go by a little faster, promo pictures of the movie have been released. One set features the main trio and another has secondary characters. Looking forward to seeing these in action?

Game of Thrones returns March 21 and a teaser trailer has just been posted promoting the new season. Though there isn’t much substance to the clip – they take the word “teaser” very literally – it still manages to drum up excitement with a three-eyed raven and a weird background song. Are you excited for GoT to be back?

It has just been revealed what superheroes will be involved in the new LEGO Marvel Super Heroes game. Over 100 characters can be unlocked during play including Spider-Man, Iron Man, Black Widow, Deadpool, and Loki. The game will be released this fall. What character are you anticipating most?

• Coulson lives! The president of ABC confirmed last week that Joss Whedon’s S.H.I.E.L.D. pilot is a sequel to The Avengers, not a prequel. The show starts shooting next week, but hasn’t been picked up beyond the pilot. Are you eager to see Whedon’s work back on the small screen?
