Mortal Kombat X’s Tanya DLC is on its way soon, according to series creator Ed Boon.
When questioned by a fan about Tanya news on Twitter, Boon responded that the Kombat Pack character is coming in early June but he stopped short of confirming a specific date.
Arc System Works has revealed that an enhanced version of Guilty Gear X2 is coming to PC via Steam.
Accent Core Plus R is the fourth edition of Guilty Gear X2, which released on PlayStation 2 in 2002. The game features new “Gatling combos” and “Dust” attacks, 25 playable characters, and ranked and player match online modes. IGN called it one of the worst fighting games for new players to pick up on. Accent Core Plus R released on PS Vita in 2013.

In the best Game of Thrones episode so far this season, Stannis got angry, Bronn got an eyeful, Cersei got a taste of her own medicine, and Sam got some.
No Arya this week, but still a very busy episode. In fact, it was getting so cluttered that I worried about "The Gift" feeling overstuffed. But it didn't. It flowed rather nicely, spending the first twenty minutes solidly up in the North, where a snow storm had hit.
Going by the books, I had assumed the title referred to the acres of land south of the Wall that Jon Snow had in mind for the Wildlings. An area known as The Gift - formerly Brandon's Gift. And while that's still a part of this season's story, the real gift (or one of them anyhow) was the intel Littlefinger gave to Olenna about Lancel and Cersei. "A handsome young man." Playing both sides as usual, Littlefinger made up for the fact that he gave up Olyvar and helped put Loras and Margaery in Religion Jail by helping get Cersei locked up as well. A scene made even more sweet by the fact that Cersei had just come from visiting an imprisoned, filthy Margaery. Now we know what fate awaits the Queen Mother without even having to see next week's chapter. It was wonderful.

Following last week's excellent flashback episode starring Patti LuPone comes Penny Dreadful's...lightest episode to date? In the very least, the most comedic. Almost to a fault, though not quite fully debilitating. Sure, there was a big witch attack at the end - in Ser Malcolm's mansion, no less - but until those final minutes Dreadful sort of took a breather. Some of it great, some of it shaky.
Firstly, we have to talk about Vanessa going shopping with Victor. A scene that really did play like it was from a different show. Though, I'd say, mostly from Victor's end. Vanessa was a pleasantly feisty button-pusher, the likes of which we saw a lot of back in Season 1 (in fact, it was nice to see her return to that for a short spell), while Victor was sort of a stuttering mess. Naturally, he was very uncomfortable, but a lot of his lines played like they were straight out of a sitcom. Like the way he fumbled while attempting to lie about his "cousin" and how he answered "Precisely five feet, five inches" when asked her height. It was a bit too much, honestly.
Spoilers for “Adult Content” within.
“Adult Content” is relatively light on laugh-out-loud gags, particularly in comparison to the episode it follows, but its commitment to character and moving the chess pieces around is commendable. With End Game in the market and out of Pied Piper’s control, Richard and company are struggling to cope with confrontation while also searching for a solution.
The main narrative of the episode was successful and served to once again display Richard’s better leadership qualities as well as the team’s overall devotion to building their product even if they fancy themselves slackers. But “stealing” the terms of End Game’s deal with the porno company and actively working to nab the contract out from under them is a move that Richard wouldn’t have gone for at the start of the season. Watching him confront the company’s CEO and deliver a speech about why he needs their business was an important moment for him and a confirmation for the viewer that these guys are worth rooting for.
It’s easy to hate on the Star Wars prequels, and you wouldn't be wrong to do so. When measured as the sum of their parts, they fall apart faster and harder than clone loyalty towards Jedi Masters post Order 66. Jar Jar is possibly one of the worst characters in movie history. The love story between Padmé Amidala and Anakin Skywalker is cringingly bad. Anakin’s decision to go from loving soon-to-be-father to younglings slayer is a bipolar pill that’s difficult to swallow.
It's definitely not all bad, however. What follows is a collection of things that George Lucas got right in the prequel trilogy.
The latest patch for Battlefield 4 will go live on Tuesday, May 26, DICE has announced.
A total of five new weapons are being added to the fray, including a new assault rifle, carbine, PDW, sidearm, and LMG. On top of that, the update adds Battlefield 3's Gun Master mode.
DICE is rolling out the patch in waves, with the PC update arriving first. Here's the full schedule, courtesy of Battlefield 4's Battlelog, which details each platform's respective downtimes:
Nobel Prize-winning mathematician John F. Nash, Jr., 86, and his wife Alicia, 82, -- who were portrayed by Russell Crowe and Jennifer Connelly, respectively, in the Oscar-winning film A Beautiful Mind -- died in a car crash in New Jersey on Saturday.
According to the New York Times, the Nashes "were in a taxi on the New Jersey Turnpike in Monroe Township around 4:30 p.m. when the driver lost control while trying to pass another car and hit a guard rail and another vehicle." They were pronounced dead at the scene.
Sadly, John Forbes Nash, Jr. is perhaps as much known to the general public for his descent into mental illness -- as documented in the aforementioned 2001 film and its source, Sylvia Nasar's 1998 biography of the same name -- as he was for his expertise in the fields of game theory, differential geometry, and partial differential equations.
The Blu-ray release of Mad Max: Fury Road will feature a black and white option, according to George Miller.
In an interview with /Film, the Fury Road director said he "demanded" a black and white option of the Blu-ray release, noting that it will also feature the ability to watch the film with nothing but the isolated score.
In one of the weaker recent Memorial Day weekends for Hollywood, Disney's science-fiction adventure Tomorrowland staved off a strong challenge from last weekend's champ Pitch Perfect 2 to open in first place at the North American box office.
Tomorrowland -- from director Brad Bird and producer Damon Lindelof and starring George Clooney -- grossed an estimated $32.2 million, far below industry estimates of between $40-50 million. (Check out this roundup of Memorial Day weekend debuts to see how it compares to past openings during this holiday frame.)
Tomorrowland received a "B" Cinemascore from audiences and mixed-to-negative reviews from critics. It earned another roughly $27 million overseas, which indicates a tough road ahead for the film. The movie, which is inspired by the Disney theme park attraction of the same name, reportedly carries a hefty $150-190 million price tag.
The PlayStation 4 version of Ultra Street Fighter IV will support PS3 FightSticks, Sony has announced.
In a post on PlayStation Blog, SCEA third-party production director Gio Corsi confirmed its compatibility, saying, "Ultra Street Fighter IV will support PS4 FightSticks, of course. But we’ve also included Lab Zero’s drivers so that USFIV will support licensed PS3 FightSticks as well."
Additionally, the PS4 version will include all of the currently-available downloadable content. It also features 1080p visuals that run at a silky smooth 60 frames-per-second, as well as reduced input lag.
Filming for Captain America: Civil War's Crossbones is now complete, actor Frank Grillo has announced.
The Crossbones actor shared the news in a post on Instagram, saying, "I'm out, Atlanta. I came I fought I conquered."
Neil Patrick Harris is a die hard Disney fan – specifically of Disney parks. As a result, the busy actor has already been involved for quite awhile in various ways with Disney, including taking part each year in Epcot’s Candlelight Processional at Walt Disney World in Orlando, FL and providing the vocal tracks for the California Screamin’ coaster at Disney's California Adventure at Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, CA.
Now, Harris can be seen by guests on a nightly basis in a big way at California Adventure, as he stars, alongside none other than Mickey Mouse, in the newly revamped World of Color show. Tied into several major events Disneyland Resort has launched as part of Disneyland’s 60th anniversary, the new show is called “World of Color – Celebrate! The Wonderful World of Walt Disney” and focuses on the history of Walt Disney himself – from his creation of Mickey Mouse, to his animated films to Disneyland. Harris and Mickey appear throughout the show as part of the large, projected images that appear on walls of water, intermixed with elaborate lighting and special effects to immerse the audience.
City Interactive and Deck 13's Lords of the Fallen is getting a Game of the Year release next month.
As is typical with most GOTY editions, this re-release includes a whole bunch of post-launch content, including the Ancient Labyrinth DLC, the Demonic Weapons and Lionheart packs, new weapons, armor, and more.
Lords of the Fallen is often compared to Dark Souls for its level design and difficult gameplay. Executive producer Tomasz Gop has addressed this sentiment, making a case for why its action-RPG should be judged on its own merits.
A poster for the 3DS version of Dragon Quest VIII: Journey of the Cursed King has surfaced, showcasing the two new characters set to join the cast of Square Enix's handheld port.
The pair of new additions, Gerda and Morrie, can be seen in the background of the aforementioned promo art, which you can check out, courtesy of Nariyuki Game Shop Blog, below.

Up until now, Orphan Black: Season 3 had mostly been setup -- compelling setup, to be fair, but the overarching was ultimately vague. The season didn't have it's hook, something for fans to latch onto. But that all changed in this week's "Certain Agony of the Battlefield," which finally kicked the show back into high gear. More notably, it was all thanks to one unlikely character: Paul. (Believe me, I'm as surprised as you are.)
We already knew that Paul was wary of Dr. Coady's intentions -- as was Mark after his misadventure with Sarah. So it was cool to see these two secretly team up to do some digging around the Castor base. And while their search efforts led to the obvious conclusion we figured out for ourselves last week -- that the Castor defect could be sexually transmitted -- Paul's deductive reasoning led to some huge revelations in the latter half of the episode.
Ex Machina star Alicia Vikander is reportedly in talks to join the casts of the upcoming Assassin's Creed film as well as the next entry in the Bourne franchise.
According to Deadline, the budding young Swedish actress is in negotiations to star opposite Matt Damon in Paul Greengrass' Bourne 5 and join Michael Fassbender in the video game-to-film adaptation of Assassin's Creed, directed by Justin Kurzel.
As a result, Vikander will likely drop out of the upcoming Tom Hanks production, The Circle. Emma Watson has reportedly been made an offer to play the role instead.
Check out this hooded tank, a cardigan, and leggings modeled after the character's color scheme, or with prints of Spider-Gwen herself.
The showpiece of the We Love Fine collection is a full hoodie modeled closely after Spider-Gwen's own costume, priced at $45 USD.
Spider-Gwen started as a one-off in an issue of the crossover event Edge of Spider-Verse. In the alternate universe, rocker Gwen Stacy was bitten by the radioactive spider, and her boyfriend Peter Parker was killed after conducting experiments to be "special" like her. It was such a hit that Marvel turned it into a full series, and the character even got the attention of the director of Bayonetta 2.
The heavily-rumored television streaming service from Apple is reportedly a bit further off from release than originally expected.
It was initially believed that Apple was intending to launch its Sony Vue competitor later this year with a total of 25 channels. However, according to a report from Re/code, the company has hit a few snags in attempting to get local broadcast networks on board.
Due to the complexities involved in getting these networks on its service, it stands to reason that the release of Apple's streaming TV service will be delayed outside its purported late 2015 launch, assuming it ever sees the light of day.
