  2. A small grey and green jump pad has appeared in Apex Legends' Kings Canyon, and based on a simple response from a Respawn developer, it seems like this item is a tease for the upcoming new Legend. Reddit user jetblacklab spotted the mysterious item right outside of Market. Upon stepping on the platform, the player is flung into the air. You can see this item in action in the video below: The colors of the jump pad match those of the supposed next Apex Legends character, Octane. An image of the character was found earlier this week in EA Origin's servers.Though Respawn warned players to be cautious of the truth behind datamined information, they didn't directly discredit the possibility that the next Legend could be Octane. Instead, a Respawn developer replied to jetblacklab's thread with a smirking emoji leading us to believe that this new item could indeed be Octane's ultimate ability or is at least related to Octane in some way.

  3. Tom Clancy may have passed, but his name will live on forever in the hearts of gamers because Ubisoft will never let it die. To say there have been quite a few games with "Tom Clancy's" stamp of approval on them – the most recent of which being The Divison 2 – would be an understatement. When we complete our review of Tom Clancy's The Division 2 next week, it will be the 96th IGN has published. It's now kind of disappointing that it's not the 100th, and I have to wonder what that will end up being. But for now, we can walk back through the multitude of reviews to see how each game under the military triller-umbrella performed, from the first-person shooters to the third-person stealth action to strategy games and arcade flight sims.

  4. In an effort to change loot drops in Anthem for the better, BioWare has officially increased the rate of masterwork and legendary drops. In a post on the official Anthem Reddit, global community lead Andrew Johnson announced that an update has gone live that increases masterwork and legendary drop rates for grandmaster 2 and grandmaster 3 difficulty levels. These drop rates have also been increased for harder enemies at all difficulty levels, including the Legendary Titan, Epic Titan, Legendary Fury, Legendary Acid Ursix and Legendary Luminary Elder. As this is a server-side update, no downloads or patches will be necessary to see these changes take hold. Continue reading… View the full article

  6. Following this morning’s terrorist attack of two New Zealand mosques which resulted in the deaths of at least 49 people, Valve has been continuously removing tributes that various Steam users have been making to the suspected shooter. Reported by Kotaku, Valve has cracked down on over 100 Steam profiles that have been memorializing the suspected shooter following the attack. These tributes often incorporated his alleged name into their profiles, and uploaded user images of the suspected shooter as well as screenshots from a Facebook livestream of the shooting. Other tributes referred to the suspected shooter as a saint or hero, or used derogatory language in reference to his victims. Continue reading… View the full article
  7. Though planning for Showtime's planned Halo TV series is officially underway, with production expected to start later in 2019, the long-in-development project had a recent key staffing turnover when attached director Rupert Wyatt, best known for directing Rise of the Planet of the Apes, departed the project in December 2018 and was later replaced by Robin Hood and Black Mirror helmer Otto Bathurst. Though he's now off the project, Wyatt had previously been deeply involved with Halo as both director and executive producer, and still has a lot of emotional investment in the series. IGN caught up with Wyatt at SXSW while he was promoting his new movie Captive State and chatted about what would have been had he stayed on Halo. Continue reading… View the full article

  17. It's the final stop on the Road to WrestleMania - WWE Fastlane! Tonight we'll find out if "The Man" Becky Lynch is going to join the Charlotte Flair/Ronda "Wrestling is Fake Now" Rousey match at 'Mania 35. We'll see if Kevin Owens, who now apparently hates bullies (and therefore...himself?) can swipe the WWE Championship from Daniel Bryan or will he fail and leave room for Kofi to challenge Bryan in April? Can The Shield co-exist in this, their (maybe) last (probably) ride as a trio, or will Dean turn on Seth again? Or will Seth turn on is brothers again? Or will Roman turn heel for the first time? Or will they just win and make us all feel good for once in our miserable lives? Continue reading… View the full article
  18. This review contains spoilers for American Gods Season 2, episode 1, titled "House on the Rock." It’s been a long, rocky road for American Gods Season 2; the ambitious Neil Gaiman adaptation aired its Season 1 finale back in 2017, and since then, the show parted ways with its original showrunners, Bryan Fuller and Michael Green, and then reportedly sidelined their replacement, Jesse Alexander, with production being plagued with rumors of behind-the-scenes turmoil and shooting delays.

  19. Warning: Full spoilers for the episode follow... Part of me wishes that "Chokepoint" was solely about Daryl and Connie's escape, and clash, with Beta and the Whisperers, giving the chapter a single, intense story to tell, but I understand that the show has such a large ensemble that focused episodes are super challenging. We're lucky that the first few installments of the season were as Hilltop/Whisperer-centric as they were, really. So this week's episode is, ipso facto, one of the more challenging types of episodes to review because it's 50% awesome. The other half, involving Carol and Ezekiel dealing with a whole new faction, with even more characters to mix into the show's bubbling broth, is middling stuff. At first it seems like these "Highwaymen," led by Ozzy (Angus Sampson), are out-of-nowhere savages but they're really just a nuisance in the end, easily owned by the Kingdom and maneuvered into helping clear out the roads (Carol winning them over with the promise of a movie screening is actually pretty funny).

  20. Respawn Entertainment has addressed some of the issues that are impacting Apex Legends and promises fixes are in the works for most problems, except for a requested reconnect feature.

It began by discussing how it is dealing with cheaters and announced that they have banned "over 355K players on PC through Easy-Anti-Cheat." Continue reading… View the full article

    Long Shot Review

    This is a spoiler-free advanced review of Long Shot from its premiere at SXSW. Long Shot will be in theaters on Friday, May 3, 2019. Romantic comedies are a fundamental cog in Hollywood’s multi-billion dollar entertainment wheel, with a formula that’s easily recognizable, and often, predictable: two people meet each other, they fall in love, there’s an obstacle to overcome, and then they - usually - live happily ever after. Long Shot, written and directed by Jonathan Levine (Warm Bodies), doesn’t stray too far from the norm, but still elevates the rom-com genre with a politically-themed, whimsical script and impeccable casting— specifically, Charlize Theron and Seth Rogen, whose on-screen chemistry is instantly captivating and really, really funny.
