Game of Thrones: Why Fans Love Wyman Manderly

Mon, 06/27/2016 - 11:00

Full spoilers for Game of Thrones' Season 6 finale, "The Winds of Winter," continue below. This post also gets into A Dance With Dragon book spoilers that specifically pertain to Wyman Manderly's storyline, so read on at your own risk.

Game of Thrones finally went somewhere book fans have been desperate for it to go for years. No, it wasn't Daenerys departing for Westeros, or finding out definitively who Jon Snow's mother was, or even someone killing Walder Frey; it was meeting Wyman Manderly in the flesh.

The Special Edition Game of Thrones Xbox One Looks Amazing

Mon, 06/27/2016 - 09:51

Microsoft has created an incredible special edition Xbox One to celebrate the season finale of Game of Thrones.

It's not for sale, but those interested can enter to win it from Xbox France's social media pages. Microsoft appears to be giving one away on each channel—Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook.

It's unclear whether there are location-based restrictions for entrants. Microsoft held a similar contest for its special edition Iron Man Xbox One, and that console was also pretty cool. Microsoft's Game of Thrones Xbox has a little extra going on, with some swirling metal-looking pieces adorning the top.

Bungie Details Legacy Console Support for Destiny

Mon, 06/27/2016 - 09:12

Come August, Destiny will no longer receive major game updates and content releases on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.

Destiny: The Taken King will still be available on the legacy consoles, though there'll be limited access to events. The Trials of Osiris and Iron Banner events will no longer be available on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360; players who wish to continue with these events must upgrade to a new console and purchase Rise of Iron when it's released.

The same goes for live events, like Festival of the Lost, Crimson Days, or the Sparrow Racing League.

However, legacy console players will still have access to heroic missions and strikes, as well as daily and weekly crucible challenges. Xûr will continue to sell his wares in the Tower or the Reef, but some items will no longer be available, like individual exotic weapons and armor pieces. Encrypted exotic engrams will now decrypt into Year 2 exotics, and encrypted legacy engrams will decrypt into Year 1 exotics.

Resident Evil 7 Won't Be the Ghost Story the Demo Suggests

Mon, 06/27/2016 - 09:08

Resident Evil 7's lead developers have divulged more details on the finished game, confirming that players won't be switching zombies for ghosts.

The official demo of the game was packed with references to the occult, leading fans of the series to believe that the full game would essentially be a ghost story.

However, director Kōshi Nakanishi said in a Capcom Unity blog post that "I think you can look at the trailer or the demo and get that impression, but don't worry, we haven't just thrown out Resident Evil as it exists and turned it into a ghost story. It will all make sense in the end."

The Story of the Cancelled Daredevil Game

Mon, 06/27/2016 - 08:36

Marvel and Sony were once working on a Daredevil game, but after internal problems and alleged drug abuse, the game never saw the light of day.

According to the latest video by Unseen64, the game was set to be a linear brawler for PlayStation 2 and later the Xbox, but the game’s scope changed considerably once Sony got involved with developer 5000ft Inc. The plan was to coincide the game’s release with the Ben Affleck Daredevil film everyone pretends never existed.

With Sony wanting something more, the developers attempted to make the game more open-world. At one point, much to the dismay of Marvel, Sony decided Daredevil: The Man Without Fear needed to capitalise on the popularity of the - wait for it - Tony Hawk’s series, which would see Daredevil exploring the whole of Hell’s Kitchen and being able to grind along railings and rooftops.

Game of Thrones: So Much Happened in Season 6's Finale!

Mon, 06/27/2016 - 00:36

Warning: Full spoilers for Game of Thrones' Season 6 finale episode, "The Winds of Winter," below.

Game of Thrones wrapped up its sixth season with an incredibly eventful episode -- you can read Matt Fowler's review by clicking here -- that truly seemed to set the stage for the endgame of the series.

So let's discuss "The Winders of Winter" and all that occurred!

This week's Dragons on the Wall topics include:

-The full reveal of Cersei's plan and all the fallout from it

-Dany finally heading towards Westeros

-Jon Snow named the new King in the North and if he and Sansa's alliance will hold

Game of Thrones: Season 6 Finale Review

Sun, 06/26/2016 - 23:09

Warning: Full spoilers for the Game of Thrones: Season 6 finale below.

So how about that for a super-sized season capper? There wasn’t a ton of action here, given last week’s mammoth set piece sort of paved the way for a more somber, conversational finale - save for the notable exception of the wicked wildfire massacre in King’s Landing - but this was still a really strong chapter.

The quickness in which people travel now on Game of Thrones continues to be a minor concern, especially when it took Sam the entire season to reach Oldtown while Varys went from Meereen to Dorne and back in twenty minutes, but it’s easy enough to understand that the separate scenes we’re watching aren’t meant to line up time-wise. But it has been a little distracting this year, to delicately address it. I don’t mind the fast off-screen travel in general, it’s just not consistent here. And it makes you wonder how long Jon and Sansa’s quest to visit the northern lords took versus how long Cersei was cooped up in the Red Keep versus how long it took Theon and Yara to travel halfway across the world.

Game of Thrones: Will Jon and Sansa Stay Allies?

Sun, 06/26/2016 - 22:51

SPOILERS for the Season 6 finale of HBO's Game of Thrones follow.

As the houses of the North pledged their allegiance to Jon Snow -- aka the White Wolf -- in a callback to Robb Stark's similarly triumphant moment a few seasons ago, Sansa Stark remained seated through it all with a pointed look -- one conspicuously shared by the ever-scheming Petyr Baelish.

Might Littlefinger's final ploy be to ultimately turn these two Starks against one another and pave the way for his own usurpation of power? He did admit to Sansa, after all, that his dream was to sit upon the Iron Throne with her by his side.

"Sansa, she does love her brother, you know? And they've had a conflicted past," said Game of Thrones co-showrunner David Benioff in HBO's Game of Thrones Season 6: Inside the Episode #10 (seen below).

Game of Thrones: Who Is Jon Snow's Father?

Sun, 06/26/2016 - 22:43

The Season 6 finale of Game of Thrones "The Winds of Winter" gave us a clearer picture than ever of Jon Snow’s mysterious parentage. Let’s dive into those details and see if we can get a better idea of what Jon's family heart tree looks like.

Warning: this article contains full spoilers for "The Winds of Winter"!

As Bran taps back into the weirwood network of important plot revelations, we return to the pivotal flashback that was abruptly cut off in “Oathbreaker” earlier this season which saw young Ned Stark defeat the Targaryen guards and ascend up the steps of the Tower of Joy. It turns out what awaited him inside was his dying sister Lyanna Stark, who was bleeding out after delivering baby Jon Snow.

Silicon Valley: Season 3 Finale Review

Sun, 06/26/2016 - 21:29

Warning: Full spoilers for the episode follow.

For a normal-length finale, "The Uptick" certainly packed in a lot of content, what with Pied Piper's fate being left up in the air until the very end. This episode also got the ball rolling with a riotous cold open, as the elephant Gavin brought in dropped dead in the middle of Hooli's courtyard. After a whole season of Gavin bringing animals in to make his points (sorry, "draw zoological comparisons"), it was amusing to see it culminate in a disaster of that size, literally.

Of course, the main focus here was on Pied Piper's false DAUs. Not surprisingly, Richard, Dinesh and Gilfoyle figured out what was going on immediately, and each offered their own take on the situation. Dinesh and Gilfoyle's "ruse," for example, brought about some fun interplay between them and Richard -- although we didn't get to see the duo's "Zombie" script in action.

Preacher: "South Will Rise Again" Review

Sun, 06/26/2016 - 20:59

Warning: Full spoilers for the episode below.

We’re at the half way point of Preacher’s first season now and while I continue to admire this series, I did hope this episode might find storylines coalesce in a way that didn’t happen. A lot of interesting moments are occurring, but they often remain a bit murky or with connections that remain unclear.

The opening sequence with the Saint of Killers was really cool and compelling in and of itself – I continue to love the cinematography of these flashbacks, and how the Saint (or “Cowboy’s”) face was so often hidden in shadow – but if you haven’t read the comics, this is now a lot of material spent on flashbacks that feel utterly unconnected to the main narrative. Preacher EP Sam Catlin has promised we’ll understand better how this storyline impacts Preacher by season’s end, but it feels like having something happen sooner would be a better course of action here.

Overwatch Hero Torbjorn Getting Nerfed on Consoles

Sun, 06/26/2016 - 19:35

Blizzard Entertainment will nerf Overwatch hero Torbjorn's turret in an upcoming patch on console, game director Jeff Kaplan confirmed.

Torbjorn's turret damage will be reduced by 30 percent on Xbox One and PlayStation 4, with PC left unchanged. Kaplan expects the update to go live in mid-to-late July, "depending on 1st party certification times."

Aided by a mouse and keyboard, PC players have a better chance of surviving Torbjorn's auto-aiming turret. Some players are suggesting this why Torbjorn will be left untouched on PC—less precise aim on a controller leaves console players at a disadvantage against Torbjorn.
