• Did you know that Netflix is available on over 1700 devices worldwide? It’s worth remembering that Netflix is now available in 190 countries all over the world, making it a truly global platform. On average, we flick through 40-50 show tiles before settling on ‘something new to watch’ when we browse Netflix. And that’s more people viewing Netflix for longer, renewing subscriptions, and bringing in friends and family for more shows. Do they spend too much commissioning second-rate TV shows?
    The science of Netflix, and why it always knows exactly what we want to watch

  • The sky continues to fall in Fortnite Battle Royale, and as does the free content. As a result of this new item hitting the Battle Royale meta, Epic has reduced the prevalence of Remote Explosives in the game, with its chances of being found in chests now diminished by 40%. Downtime for v3.6 has begun, but stick around and read this week’s Patch Notes. Battle Pass owners, that means you don’t have very long to finish up your challenges and max out those tiers for that coveted Level 100 John Wick

  • A handful of lucky, lucky souls managed to mingle with the stars of the MCU and be among the very first in the world to watch Avengers: Infinity War in Los Angeles last night. Avengers: Infinity War is the real deal. AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR is basically CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR times 20, except with less hero-on-hero fighting. Thor, most of the Guardians, Peter Parker, best ending of any Marvel movie, possibly the best end credits scene of any marvel movie. You are not ready for ‘Avengers: Infi

  • Avengers: Infinity War may be a MCU movie unlike any other, but it still comes with the traditional Marvel post-credits scene stinger. With the Russo Brothers packing everything into Infinity War, it’s not really a surprise to see only a single post-credits scene – but it’s still a little disappointing. I’ve gotten so used to the pattern of one funny post-credits scene and one set-up post-credits scene that it feels a little empty. Either that, or Earth’s Mightiest Heroes go for a second helping
    Here's how many Avengers: Infinity War post-credits scenes there are (if you really want to know)

  • One of the first things you’ll notice in the new God of War is just how good that new Leviathan Axe feels when you’re flinging it at cackling revenants. Now, a God of War insider is ready to spill some tea on creating the all-important ‘axe recall’ mechanic. We’ve spoken to Nappali and the combat team in the past about making the axe feel right, but Nappali goes into way more depth in this personal blog post. “We wanted the axe to feel like it was really wedged into the surface. If you haven’t s

  • Such is the daunting proposition of The Endless Mission, coming to PC this summer. What sets Endless Mission apart is that it turns making games into a game. And to be clear, in The Endless Mission, you can do that too. Ideally, the next step would be learning to code – which The Endless Mission supports. The Endless Mission has the potential to turn those dreams into reality, to empower the everyday person to create.
    The Endless Mission is just how you imagined game development as a kid

  • Destiny 2 players could smell it in the air even before the new Warmind teaser trailer arrived: more content reveals are coming. The first thing to note, and the biggest win for fans of old-school Exotics, is the return of Suros Regime. When you’re not exploring, you can try out the “Hive Escalation Protocol,” which looks and sounds an awful lot like a new horde mode. Other key points revealed by the trailer include a new, extra-chilly variant of enemies infesting Mars: frozen Hive. Could we be

  • You probably know the basic premise of God of War , even if you haven’t started playing it yet – but you’ve never seen it rendered in such mythical terms (and script). A clever student of languages noticed that the runic text on the back of the God of War Steelbook case isn’t just there for visual flavor – it actually serves as a brief introduction to the tale of Kratos and Atreus. Here’s the text as transliterated on Instagram by Antonino Lupo. Presumably the “promise of one before” refers to A

  • Hulking PC behemoth Valve, mostly known for running that little online marketplace called Steam and tormenting Half-Life fans, just bought Firewatch development studio Campo Santo. The news comes as an exciting surprise, because it means Valve is finally a studio that makes games again. Campo Santo’s next game is In the Valley of Gods , and in a blog post it confirmed that yes, this would now be a Valve game. They asked us if we’d all be interested in coming up to Bellevue and doing that there a
    Valve must have really, really loved Firewatch, because it just bought the studio

  • The Nintendo Switch’s new cardboard activity kit, Nintendo Labo , was only released last Friday, but that’s plenty of time to have a dog/small child/orange soda-related mishap resulting in a dire need a new part for your fishing rod, robot or piano. It’s not only offering to sell you replacement parts , but is also giving away all the templates for the Toy-Con 01 Variety Kit and Toy-Con 2 Robot Kit for free.

  • At first glance it’s easy to see Quantic Dream’s Detroit: Become Human as covering the same ground as Westworld . First of all there’s not a favorite character for me, because there’s a little bit of me in all of them. In light of what’s happening today, it’s difficult to believe that they wouldn’t do anything with that information. But that’s the nature of the experience that we create and it’s important to create unique assets that not everyone will see. Now, considering this game is full of a

  • During Detroit: Become Human you play as three main characters: Markus, Kara, and Connor. The opening hours of the game deal with the awakening of these characters, and the events that trigger them to go beyond their normal behaviours. One scene sees Markus helping Carl with his latest artwork – a rather derivative painting on a giant canvass. Much like its android characters, Detroit’s eerie layer of perfection hides a far smarter, more emotionally substantial game than first appears. One way o
    Detroit: Become Human hands-on reveals a smarter, more emotional game than you might think

  • Westworld season 2 is finally here. And this week’s big Westworld question is… *drumroll* Why did Bernard kill ALL the Hosts? Of everyone working at Westworld, Bernard would be the one character you’d think would probably side with the Hosts… you know, being one himself! Plus, Bernard killing all the Hosts because ‘it’s the right thing to do’ is just too mundane and straight-forward for Westworld. Post your theories in the comments section below and come back next week for our big question on ep
    The big question we have after watching Westworld season 2, episode 1

  • Ah, Westworld season 2 75-minute premiere that gave us lots to ponder, answered precisely nothing, and still left us wanting more. It had so much going on, in fact, that everyone on the internet appears to have had their brains scrambled. April 2018The big mystery I hope they answer in #Westworld season 2 is if Bernard will ever look through his glasses 🤞 April 2018Is Dolores this season’s Big Bad? #Westworld Maeve:

  • Westworld season 2 has been a long time coming. The opening episode doesn’t hold back from everything we were promised from a robot revolution, but it’s also obvious that’s there’s still cards to be played at the same time. Note: From here on out there are plot spoilers for Westworld season 2, episode 1 – Journey into Night. In a very real way, watching the first episode of Westworld season 2 is like getting part of a puzzle and being asked if it works. The message of the opening episode is clea

  • If you tuned in to watch the very first episode of Westworld season 2 on HBO tonight, you might have noticed something different about the show’s opening credits. Remember when the Stark sigil was finally seen back over Winterfell in the Game of Thrones season 6 opening credits? Well, it looks like Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy are taking a page from the Thrones playbook because the Westworld season 2 opening credits are a little different. Westworld season 2 airs Sundays on HBO (available via Dis

  • If you thought this Friday was going to be a quiet one then buckle up, Witcher fans. Lauren S. Hissrich, writer and executive producer on the upcoming Netflix adaptation just spilled all her Witcher tea in a series of tweets. There will be eight episodes, it’ll maybe be done by 2020 and only the pilot has been written so far. I know, I know, it may not seem like enough for you, but creatively, it’s the right call. The episodes can be tight, action-packed, rich in character and story, without lag

  • In a heartfelt post on the Hearthstone forums, game director Ben Brode has announced (out of nowhere) that he’s leaving Blizzard Entertainment to start a new company. “After 15 years at Blizzard and almost 10 years working on Hearthstone, I have made the incredibly difficult decision to embark on a new journey,” Brode writes. “I am very fortunate to be able to take a crazy risk right now in my life, and I’m excited to be scrappy and a little scared.

  • The Netherlands today declared that, after conducting an investigation into the matter, it found several high-profile games’ loot box systems to be illegal. These are not new lawsThe Netherlands did not just make loot boxes illegal. And, as the post itself declares (via Google Translate), “Coincidence determines the contents of these loot boxes. The NGA also claimed that it found a potential link between loot boxes and addiction. So loot boxes themselves aren’t actually in any major trouble, jus

  • At the end of God of War, Kratos kills Balder and heads to Jotunheim with Atreus to scatter his wife’s ashes. Fathers killing sons is a reoccurring theme in God of War. Tyr is the Norse god of war who’s continually referenced but never seen. That’s interesting because, in an interview, Cory Barlog has mentioned Mayan and Egyptian locations as possible settings for future God of War games. Now, bear with me here, but I think Kratos is Tyr.
