IFA doesn’t officially begin until September 2nd, but Acer is kicking things off early with a live stream press conference early in the morning on August 31st. If you want to tune in, just be sure to point your browser to this post at 4AM ET.
Although many Pokemon Go players are content with leveling up and catching rare Pokemon, there are others who prefer to dig into the competitive aspect of the game. Unfortunately, like many of the game’s other features, it requires a ton of trial and error to determine which of your Pokemon are best equipped to battle at, win and effectively defend a gym once you take it over.
At least, it was trial and error, until GamePress published an incredibly comprehensive list of all the best gym defenders and their toughest match-ups.
I hold to this day that Titanfall is the most dynamic, kinetic, entertaining and engaging first-person shooter of this generation. Unfortunately, we’ve become so accustomed to the carrot-on-a-stick multiplayer that Call of Duty and Battlefield have mastered that the lack of concrete rewards tainted Titanfall.
It didn’t matter that the game was fun — we wanted a single-player campaign, we wanted an addictive progression system and we didn’t get either. So within months, the player base had shrunk to a tiny fraction of its original size.
Just one week after Sony accidentally revealed it was bringing PlayStation Now to PC, the streaming service has gone live in the United States. That means that you can play over 400 PlayStation 3 games on your computer right this very instant by heading to PSNow.com and clicking the button to download the app.
Microsoft just released the Xbox One S and Sony is preparing to unveil the PS4 Slim, but in a few short months, Nintendo will launch the first truly new major video game console since 2013. The NX is currently scheduled to release next March, but we still know hardly anything about the console, as Nintendo has been predictably tight-lipped ever since the console was announced.
So in truth, we don’t know anything concrete about the NX, and likely won’t for a few more months. But at the very least, what do we think we know? More →
We’ve talked about this more than once before, but Pokemon Go can be fairly inscrutable at times. If you never do any research, there are all kinds of tips, tricks and easter eggs you’ll likely never find. But if and when you finally do decide to use the internet to improve your Pokemon Go game, you might want to watch out for tips that seem reasonable, but have been proven false.
Like it or not, Game of Thrones only has two seasons left. We might get a spinoff series of some nature once it ends, but the story and the characters we’ve been following for the past six years are going away for good.
So what are we supposed to do while we wait for season 7? What universe are we supposed to get lost in every weekend and spend the entire week discussing with our friends and colleagues? Don’t worry — HBO is on the case once again.
Whether you love The Walking Dead or have a love-hate relationship with it, be thankful that it was picked up by AMC instead of NBC. Speaking at the Edinburgh International Television Festival, executive producer Gale Anne Hurd discussed what could have been if the show had stayed at NBC, where creator Frank Darabont had an overall deal before moving on to other networks.
Earlier this morning, Ben Affleck surprised comic book fans everywhere by sharing some blurry footage of DC villain Deathstroke on his Twitter account. There was no context or explanation, but according to TheWrap’s Umberto Gonzalez, a source with knowledge of the situation has confirmed that Deathstroke will be the main villain in Affleck’s upcoming solo Batman movie.
Following the endless stream of leaks over the past few months, there might not be anything left to announce. But nevertheless, Apple made its September 7th event official today when it sent out invites to members of the press.
As usual, the company didn’t confirm anything that would be revealed at the event in the invite, but we’re fairly certain the iPhone 7 will take center stage.
Next week is going to be exceptionally busy, with Apple slated to reveal the iPhone 7 and Sony preparing to announce a slim PS4 alongside a “high-end” PS4. For those of us who cover the worlds of technology and entertainment, it’s important to relieve as much stress as possible the weekend before big events, which is why I’m watching this new Captain America: Civil War blooper reel on repeat.
