In an interview with The New York Times this week, Donald Trump made it very clear that he’s not 100% sure what the word cyber means or how to use it in a sentence. It was the most laughable moment in an interview full of them, so I decided to notch up the ridiculousness a few degrees by replacing every mention of the word “cyber” with some form of the word “Pokémon.”
Yesterday was a big day for fans of Marvel’s Netflix series. Not only did the two companies reveal the first (not so great) teaser for The Defenders, they also revealed that Daredevil would be getting a third season and showed off brand new trailers for two highly anticipated shows: Luke Cage and Iron Fist.
Look, if we’re being honest with ourselves we can admit that the past few Marvel movies have been… not great. They’re all still wonderfully entertaining thanks to huge budgets and compelling characters, but I’d wager that there aren’t many people out there who would argue that Avengers, Iron Man and Captain America movies have been getting better as they progress. That noticeable decline is one of the reasons I’m so excited for The Defenders, an upcoming new Netflix exclusive show that will combine the stories of four characters from the Marvel universe similar to what we’ve seen in The Avengers.
But the first teaser trailer Marvel just release didn’t pique my interest — it just made me angry. More →
Having struggled to keep up with the PlayStation 4 for nearly three years, Microsoft knew it was going to have to bring the big guns to E3 2016. Rather than just announcing new games and peripherals, the company actually announced not one, but two (2!) new versions of the Xbox One console last month.
On paper, this sounds like a surefire way to reinvigorate a fan base. In reality, it might have unintentionally stalled Xbox One sales.
Everyone is talking about Stranger Things this week (and for good reason, based on the reviews), but there’s another Netflix original series coming back later this year that got a new trailer on Thursday. On September 2nd, Narcos—one of the most violent shows the streaming service has even produced—returns for season 2.
Although we’re all dying to see what Nintendo has in store for the next generation, the gaming company made waves earlier this month will some decidedly less timely news: the Nintendo Entertainment System is coming back.
On July 14th, Nintendo announced the NES Classic Edition — a miniature version of the original NES with 30 classic games built in. A week later, Nintendo shared a radical, tubular, totally retro trailer to hype up the console.
Pokemon Go is a free-to-play game. In the world of mobile gaming, this really means that it’s free for anyone to start playing, but increasingly difficult for those players to make progress in the later stages of the game without spending money. That said, Pokemon Go generally falls on the friendlier side of the spectrum, allowing players to wander the world without forcing them to wait for a countdown timer to refresh or forcing them to unlock new abilities to progress.
Where players really begin running into trouble is when they make it above a certain level, at which point they either have to spend a significant amount of money or an unthinkable amount of time to continue to level up.
If you love superheroes, then you have to be excited about Suicide Squad, a new movie from the DC Comics universe that tells an unusual superhero tale. Rather than having the good guys save the day, in Suicide Squad we get to see a team of sick, perverted villains who are forced to work together by the government. Among them, there may or may not be the Joker, who’s likely the best villain Batman has ever had to deal with, and many other exciting characters.
We have no idea what happens in the movie, even though there have been numerous trailers to enjoy. However, a major spoiler seems to have been unearthed by the most unexpected thing, a Hot Toys new product for the movie that was shown off at Comic-Con. Stop reading now, if you want to avoid any spoilers.
If you’ve been playing Pokemon Go for the past two weeks, you’ve probably had to think twice before blindly following Pokemon into dark alleyways or private property at some point. One thing you probably haven’t had to deal with: landmines.
If you want to be the very best at Pokemon Go, you need to read this.
Despite being the most popular app of all time, Pokemon Go is surprisingly inscrutable. There’s no tutorial, no instruction manual, and some of the game’s most basic rules are completely hidden from view. For example, did you know that Arcanine has a better base attack stat than Charizard?
You probably didn’t, which is exactly why you need to check out The Silph Road.
Suicide Squad hits theaters in just two weeks, on August 5th. We’ve seen plenty of trailers that introduced some of the bad guys that are going to do some good for humanity in this strange anti-superhero movie, and the final trailer for the film shows us who the “puppet masters” are.
The year of our Lord 2016 has already set Guiness Records for crappiness, so why should we stop while we’re ahead? An article from Hollywood Reporter informs us that Warner Bros is making a major motion picture with the working title Worst Tinder Date Ever.
We brought this upon ourselves.
There are few developers that know how to handle an important property quite as well as Telltale Games. They did it with Back to the Future in 2012, The Walking Dead in 2012 plus Game of Thrones, Minecraft and Borderlands in 2015.
In 2016, the studio has its biggest challenge yet with Batman: The Telltale Series.
