  4. Time was, if you wanted an arcade cabinet in your house, you had to make a lot of sacrifices. You either had to sacrifice space and a lot of money for a commercial cabinet or sacrifice more time but less money on building a custom MAME cabinet, or some other solution for home arcade gaming. Arcade1Up's line of 3/4 scale arcade cabinets hit the scene and shrunk the cabinets down from their full-sized versions, added more than one game per unit, and kept the price manageable. The question remains with Arcade1Up cabinets: what sacrifices have to be made to get a 4-foot arcade cabinet replica in your home? The good news is the Mortal Kombat Arcade1Up cabinet (See it at Walmart) manages to distill the arcade Mortal Kombat experience into a device without a lot of sacrifices.

  6. Death Stranding's central theme of connection is a metaphor that reflects Trump, the European Union, and schisms in societies around the world today, says Kojima. In an interview with Game Informer, the mind behind Death Stranding acknowledged that the "Briefing" trailer for the game uses a lot of language about divided people that echoes the conversations being had about America today. Watch the Death Stranding Briefing trailer below. "But the theme of the game is connection," he said. "You will understand the meaning of it." Continue reading… View the full article
  7. Fans have discovered a Borderlands 3 glitch that can be exploited to farm large amounts of legendary gear in less than five minutes. The Borderlands 3 Reddit page has seen a number of posts discussing the glitch, with fans sharing tips on how to receive powerful end-game legendary weapons. Most of the instructions advise players to take advantage of the exploits at Mayhem 3, the new high risk / high reward mode that raises the game's difficulty. "End game farming you can easily get 200 or so legendaries in an hour or hour and a half at most," wrote Reddit user u/ChuunibyouImouto in one post. "By this point, me and my friends have reach the stage of recognizing most legendaries by name and immediately knowing which are auto vendor garbage and which are not."

    WRC 8 Review

    Though it’s been through some hard times over the past 19 years, KT Racing’s WRC series has been steadily improving since the French development team’s tenure with the license began in 2015, and WRC 8 represents its biggest leap in quality to date. Packed with outstanding stage design and bolstered by a number of welcome improvements – including a much richer and more nuanced career mode – WRC 8 is certainly the most in-depth rally sim to ever wear the official license. Finally, it’s positioned to compete with the big names in the genre. Whether played with a pad or a wheel, WRC 8 is a satisfying arm wrestle and certainly the best-feeling WRC game I’ve played – and that extends back to Evolution’s memorable stint with the license back in the PS2 era. On a pad, the FWD cars like aggressive taps of the stick for countersteering – anxious drags just induce fishtailing. They also need keen tugs of the trigger to brake hard and step the rear out. The AWD WRC cars and their otherworldly acceleration and grip require much more finesse; you can pivot them on the throttle but they demand smoother inputs all around. On a wheel, however, it really starts to sing; it’s slippy but responsive as the tyres relentlessly claw at any surface, and the force feedback is impressive and effective.

  11. "We have no plan for a sequel," Joker director Todd Phillips recently said at a post-screening reception for press in Los Angeles. The director was clarifying comments he made in an earlier interview after reports of Phillips and Joaquin Phoenix wanting to make a Joker sequel swirled online, which Phillips admitted he found "annoying." Phillips took the opportunity to say his words about a potential sequel were taken out of context in a Total Film interview. "The quote was, 'I will do anything Joaquin wants to do.' And I would. But the movie's not set up to Continue reading… View the full article
  12. Actor Dan Aykroyd, star of the original two Ghostbusters films, is set to appear in the upcoming Ghostbusters 2020, THR reported Monday. Aykroyd may have sort-of-spoiled the existence of Ghostbusters 2020 way back in 2018, but the actor has now confirmed his involvement in the sequel, where he’ll once again be playing the scientist-turned-Ghostbuster Raymond Stantz.

  14. The right gaming monitor can elevate your PC gaming experience, and you don't need to spend a ton of money to do it. Whether you’re looking to complement your shiny new gaming PC rig or just looking for an inexpensive update to an existing system, this guide will help you navigate the dizzying array of choices. First of all, this is a great time to pick up a cheap gaming monitor and you’ve got plenty of choices. You'll have to balance cost, features, and display quality to get the best bang for your buck though. We set a $500 limit on this guide for the sake of being comprehensive, but there are plenty of great choices for less than $250 if you’re willing to give up on high-end features that you’re less likely to use.

  15. Rambo: Last Blood, the fifth and presumed final film in the Rambo saga (at least until the inevitable reboot) opens in theaters this weekend, leading fans of the series to contemplate its lasting pop culture legacy. John Rambo himself, as played by Sylvester Stallone, now 73, is something of a contradiction. On the one hand, Rambo – as depicted in First Blood – is a symbol of wartime trauma, a man pushed back into violence when he has already left the Vietnam battlefields behind. In the Rambo sequels, however, the character changed, altered from a sad, tragic figure into an unstoppable action badass. Rambo became an admirable symbol for American military might and forthright American aggression as it was perceived in the Reagan era. Continue reading… View the full article
  16. Amazon Prime Video is dropping seven original series in the month of October, including the third season of Billy Bob Thorton's Goliath, and newcomer Modern Love -- a romantic anthology series based on the long-running New York Times column of the same name, starring Anne Hathaway, Tina Fey, Dev Patel, Caitlin McGee, John Slattery, Brandon Victor Dixon, and Catherine Keener. On the movie front, Amazon is adding Robert Pattison's sci-fi film High Life, and the Tiffany Haddish rom-com Nobody's Fool. If you're not a Prime member, you can sign up for a free 30-day Amazon Prime trial and reap all the benefits, including streaming Amazon Video. That means you have the opportunity to check out every new video this month without having to pay for it. Continue reading… View the full article
  17. Sure, we’d all love to play our console games on a massive $4,000 OLED 4K TV, but for most of us, that’s just beyond our budget. Many consumers balk at spending even $1,000 on a new TV. Thankfully, the best budget gaming TVs offer a surprising number of features with 4K resolutions, high-dynamic range, and even preloaded apps. And if you already have a high-end 4K TV in the living room for watching Netflix, movies, and sports, then you can spend a lot less for a second TV for the basement or a kid’s room that will pull double duty as big gaming screen next to a gaming PC or console. Sure, you can get better color reproduction, viewing angles, brightness, and contrast if you spend more, but a cheap TV might surprise you with its features and image quality.

  18. Comedian Shane Gillis will no longer be joining the cast of Saturday Night Live in the show's upcoming 45th season. Gillis was among three new "featured players" announced earlier in September, alongside Bowen Yang and Chloe Fineman. Gillis' casting quickly drew heavy criticism stemming from several podcast clips featuring Gillis making racially insensitive jokes and using racial and homophobic slurs. Gillis' hiring was also criticized for coming at the same time Yang is making SNL history as the show's first Chinese-American cast member. A spokesperson for SNL producer Lorne Michaels released the following statement online: “After talking with Shane Gillis, we have decided that he will not be joining SNL. We want SNL to have a variety of voices and points of view within the show, and we hired Shane on the strength of his talent as comedian and his impressive audition for SNL. We were not aware of his prior remarks that have surfaced over the past few days. The language he used is offensive, hurtful and unacceptable. We are sorry that we did not see these clips earlier, and that our vetting process was not up to our standard.” Continue reading… View the full article
  19. Tigers Are Not Afraid is in limited theatrical release and streaming in the US, Canada and UK/Ireland exclusively on Shudder. There is a long tradition of magical realism in Latin American storytelling, which borrows elements from fables and myth and inserts them into true-to-life stories about our modern world to make fantasy part of the norm. While this is more often associated with literature, films like Amélie and the filmography of Guillermo del Toro bring elements of magical realism to film. Tigers Are Not Afraid, the newest film by Mexican writer-director Issa López, not only manages to join the pantheon of great magical realism stories; it’s a movie that’s part war documentary, part dark fantasy, and all round one of the best Latin American movies of the decade.

  20. Dungeons & Dragon's newest adventure, Baldur's Gate: Descent into Avernus, is out tomorrow, and we here at IGN have been eager to explore more of Faerun's most dangerous city (and, of course, the infernal planes it leads to) since it was first revealed a D&D Live 2019. We invited Dungeons & Dragons Game Designer Kate Welch and D&D artist Tyler Jacobson (who did the cover art for Avernus) to show myself, Casey DeFreitas and Brandin Tyrrel what it takes to survive a trip to Avernus. Kate leads us on a quest from Baldur's Gate and into the top level of the Nine Hells - though whether we make it back or not remains to be seen! Continue reading… View the full article
  21. Technically summer doesn't end for another week but that doesn't mean it's not too early to start thinking about the holidays. I've been thinking about Halloween since July, for example. But today I'm going to vault right over Halloween and Thanksgiving and land right on Christmas. LEGO advent calendars are discounted at Amazon right now, and if you want to count down the days with tiny collectibles, buy one sooner rather than later. As we get closer to the holiday and stocks deplete, opportunistic third-parties often list them for more than their MSRP. Don't get caught paying too much for a month of delight! LEGO Harry Potter 2019 Advent Calendar 18% Off Continue reading… View the full article

  27. Over the past 22 years, Ash Ketchum has fought countless Pokemon gym leaders, fled from Godzilla-sized Pokemon robots, and even been turned to stone and brought back to life by Pikachu’s tears -- but finally, he’s achieved what few thought possible. Ash Ketchum has finally become a Pokemon League Champion. In the 139th episode of the Pokemon Sun and Moon anime series, in the tropical Alola region, Ash finally took home the title of Pokemon League Champion, according to ComicBook.com. Winning the championship earned him the title of Pokemon Master. Continue reading… View the full article
