Netflix releases first six episodes of ‘The Get Down’ to mixed reviews

If you’ve finished binge watching Stranger Things and are on the hunt for a new show to get into, Netflix’s new show The Get Down may be worth checking out. Released earlier today, The Get Down is a Hip Hop musical drama set in 1970s New York. Featuring an all-star cast, including Giancarlo Esposito (aka Gus from Breaking Bad) and Jimmy Smits, it’s worth noting that the show was conceived by Baz Luhrmann and The Shield creator Shawn Ryan.

If the name Baz Luhrmann doesn’t sound familiar, chances are you’re already familiar with his work as he previously wrote and directed films like The Great Gatsby and Moulin Rouge!.

Unlikely internet celebrity Lauri Vuohensilta is the Finnish genius behind Hydraulic Press Channel, a YouTube channel that does…well, you can probably guess.

Vuohensilta made his name crushing such mundane items as red-hot nickel balls and rubber ducks, but he’s finding ways to keep things interesting months later. Yes, those ways do involve dynamite.

Darth Vader returns to Star Wars in brand new Rogue One trailer

I’ve been waiting for a long time to say this, but Darth Vader is back, baby! The great Star Wars villain we’ve grown to love has been rumored to appear in the first Star Wars spinoff, Rogue One, and all those reports were confirmed a few weeks ago. But we haven’t seen footage of him until now. A brand new trailer for Rogue One came out a few hours ago, revealing the main storyline, some of the characters including a great new droid and Darth Vader. More →

Over the past few years, Conan has become an awkward icon in the gaming world thanks to his Clueless Gamer series and his inexplicable appearances at the E3 exposition in Los Angeles, California. Conan went to E3 again this year, but it appears that we didn’t see the entire extent of his visit back in June.

Stranger Things 80s Movie References

‘Stranger Things’ supercut highlights every reference to classic 80s movies

‘Stranger Things’ supercut highlights every reference to classic 80s movies

If you haven’t yet seen Netflix’s latest hit Stranger Things, set aside some time this weekend and dive into a show that some have already dubbed an “instant classic.” Set in the early 1980s, Stranger Things is an original, enthralling and — at times — heartwarming sci-fi show that pays subtle homage to iconic 80s films that have stood the test of time, from Poltergeist to Stand by Me. As one astute review of the show said, Stranger Things “doesn’t just reference ’80s movies. It captures how it feels to watch them.”

Pokemon Go Smart Shoes

A high-tech pair of shoes could be the ultimate Pokemon Go accessory

A high-tech pair of shoes could be the ultimate Pokemon Go accessory

One of the best things about Pokemon Go is that is has people getting out of their houses and out into the world. Even if your house or apartment happens to be sitting next to a PokeStop, you’re only going to find so many Pokemon by sitting on the couch, so going outside and walking around is really your only option.

But wouldn’t it be nice if your shoes could do more than just transport you from point A to point B? What if they could tell you when a Pokemon appeared?

Using gravity to split bowling balls on an axe is so damn impressive

Splitting a bowling ball with an axe sounds like the kind of futile activity you should not try at home, mainly because it’s not likely you’d succeed. But there is one way this trick could work, and the following video proves it can be done.

No Man's Sky Infinite Item Exploit

‘No Man’s Sky’ exploit breaks the game’s economy, lets players farm rare items

‘No Man’s Sky’ exploit breaks the game’s economy, lets players farm rare items

One of the first things you’re going to want to do when you start playing No Man’s Sky is upgrade to a new ship. As you’d expect, buying a brand new spaceship isn’t cheap, so you’re going to have to save up units (the in-game currency) before you can make an extravagant purchase. Normally, this would take hours of resource gathering and trading on the galactic market, but some clever players have found an exploit that allows them to duplicate the game’s most valuable items.

By on August 10, 2016 at 8:00 PM.

With all the buzz surrounding Pokemon Go, you’ll be forgiven for temporarily forgetting that the mobile phenomenon never would have been possible without the portable games that preceded it. In fact, there are two new entries in the long-running Pokemon franchise scheduled to hit later this year, but on Wednesday afternoon, a slightly less official Pokemon game was unleashed into the wild.

Introducing: Pokemon Uranium.

Netflix for sports DAZN

‘Netflix for sports’ is finally here, but there’s a catch

‘Netflix for sports’ is finally here, but there’s a catch

The only thing standing between most Netflix users and complete cord-cutting is live sports. Binging House of Cards is all good, but American culture is well rooted in the notion of football and a can of Bud Light (shudder). Even big players like Apple have tried (and failed!) to put together a streaming TV package that includes sports, but now one European startup appears to have pulled it off. Kinda.

DAZN is very much like Netflix, but for certain sports. For a flat fee of about $12 a month, users get access to on-demand and live-streaming soccer, NFL, NBA, ice hockey and rugby, to name a few. Sounds perfect! But, it’s technically only available to users in Germany, Austria and Switzerland right now.
