A TV show within a video game? That's the concept behind NBA2K TV, featured inside NBA 2K15.
NBA2K TV will give the NBA 2K15 gaming community a chance to showoff their their highlights. Programming will also include exclusive interviews with NBA players, coaches, and basketball experts.
The show will update within the game weekly, each episode lasting approximately 15 minutes. Players will be able to contribute their highlights from NBA 2K thanks to the game-capture features on PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4 -- the only platforms to support NBA2K TV.
The first episode is scheduled for October 7, 2014, the same day NBA 2k15 releases in North America. Pre-orders of the game come with the Kevin Durant MVP Bonus Pack.
We don't know much about the upcoming CBS Supergirl TV series from Arrow and Flash's Greg Berlanti other than we think that it's an awesome idea and we fully support it.
A few questions arise, naturally. Tonally, will Supergirl match Arrow and The Flash, despite being on a different (though corporately connected) network? Also, with Berlanti behind it, could Supergirl share an actual DC TV-verse with the CW shows in a way that FOX's Gotham (which is also restrained by being a prequel) and NBC's Constantine can't? And the logline mentions Kara Zor-El's "famous cousin," so it seems clear that Superman exists within the world of this show - but how much of a force/factor will he be if he's never shown on-screen?
The iPhone 6 and 6 Plus are available now.
If you want one and you didn't pre-order one or stand in a line at midnight, you might have a tough task ahead of you. Stock is running low at both online and brick-and-mortar retailers, and some eBay users are selling their iPhones for $1,500 USD. Of course, you could always take advantage of these iPhone 6 pre-order deals.
A UFC Fight Pass app is currently in development for the Xbox One.
This was announced via the app's official Twitter account, which confirmed that a version for Microsoft's console was being worked on with a target release date for later this year.

With the release of the iPhone 6 today, Apple enthusiasm is high. But, with stock running low at various places, not everyone will be getting their hands on the device.
But never fear. For those unable to take home the iPhone 6, iRonic gifts has launched the iCup on Kickstarter, hoping to revolutionize the way we communicate. If iCups can reach its $10,000 goal, backers will be able to get their hands on this state-of-the-art form of pure communication.
Spoiler alert! If you're not yet caught up on Game of Thrones, look away.
As you may remember from the Season 4 finale, Tywin Lannister popped his clogs at the hand of his son Tyrion Lannister, whom he had wrongfully sentenced to death. You'd think that would mean we wouldn't be seeing his smirking face again, but a new interview suggests that may not be the case...
Speaking with MTV, Charles Dance - the actor behind the Lannister patriarch - teased his return to the show, saying that we haven't "see the last" of Tywin.
Whatever does this mean?! Will we be seeing him at a funeral, in a flashback, or in a more ominous form? I guess we'll find out for sure when season 5 begins next March or April, but till then, throw us your guesses in the comments.
Some lucky students can prepare to get schooled in all things Marvel, thanks to a new course at the University of Baltimore that will examine how Marvel Studios' series of interconnected films and television shows offer insight into modern culture.
The class, entitled "Media Genres: Media Marvels," is a first of its kind look at Marvel Studios' efforts to establish an interconnected universe of plotlines, characters, and backstories in order to better understand our culture's love of superheroes. Starting with the first Iron Man movie, students will examine the films, television shows, and related comic books that make up the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Housemarque has announced that Outland is coming to PC players via Steam on September 29.
It will cost $10 USD / €10 / £7.
The PC version will reportedly feature improvements, such as campaign co-op and a revamped checkpoint system. According to Housemarque, this re-release has been "crafted to be appreciated by a completely new audience."
Outland is an action-platformer in which gamers can manipulate special forms of "energy alignments," allowing their characters to become stronger with a certain energy while at the same time becoming weaker against the opposite form of energy. Boss battles are complemented by two online-centric cooperative modes -- story co-op and challenge co-op -- as well as a single-player arcade mode for speed-running and high score-chasing.
“Hey, about Kirito’s words about the movements during battle,” began the lanky swordsman Klein. “I think that easier for you to fight if I do the support.” I had two possible replies: “So what it is now is better,” and “Right, that’s a great help.” I chose the latter response, to which Klein replied, “It’s impossible now, but I’ll take care of supporting.” Well, ok then.
This jarring translation is emblematic of Sword Art Online: Hollow Fragment’s myriad problems. It’s rife with issues like fuzzy directions, shameless fan pandering, and a fragmented story. That’s a shame, because if you took a machete to all that tangled mess, Sword Art Online would be a solid action RPG.
Catwoman is experiencing some major changes in the coming months thanks to the events of Batman Eternal. A new creative team is taking over her series in October, as Selina Kyle abandons her life as Catwoman in order to embrace her family legacy and become Gotham's new crime lord.

Has she taken advantage of Batman's physical woes and extended her grip on Gotham? Why is the comic titled "The Death of Selina Kyle"? And why does the cover show Selina undergoing a supernatural transformation?

FX has cast Sam Elliott (Hulk, Tombstone) and Garret Dillahunt (Raising Hope, Deadwood) in recurring roles on its critically-acclaimed, award-winning drama series Justified, which enters its sixth and final season January 2015.
Sam Elliott will portray “Markham,” a legendary Kentucky gangster who returns from exile with a private army and bags of cash (earned growing legal weed in Colorado), hell-bent on winning back his empire and the lost love of his life, Katherine Hale (Mary Steenburgen). He'll find himself butting heads with Raylan and Boyd and even with Katherine herself, who secretly believes that Markham is the rat who brought down her husband.

XSEED Games made the release date announcement on the PlayStation Blog, revealing that the follow-up to Senran Kagura Burst will be available in just less than a month. Senran Kagura Shinovi Versus brings the action into 3D, as the former game was a side-scrolling brawler.

Sony Pictures Animation has unveiled a first glimpse of what its CGI take on the classic Popeye the Sailor cartoon might look like. Take a look:
In the above video, director Genndy Tartakovsky reveals what he calls an "animation test" for the Popeye film (skip to 1:58 to fast-forward to the footage in question). While the movie does not yet have a green light from Sony, it is in active development.
"It's not a clip, it's not a trailer, it's nothing from the actual movie," Tartakovsky explains. "It's just something that kind of represents what we wanted to do."
The animation features some of Popeye's most well-known characters, with details such as Olive Oyl's elasticity maintained even in the new CGI format.
DC Comics' Suicide Squad is reportedly poised for a big screen mission.
According to Variety, Warner Bros. is actively developing a live-action feature film based on the DC title with David Ayer (End of Watch, Sabotage, the upcoming Fury) their choice to direct from a script by Justin Marks (The Jungle Book, Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li). Dan Lin will produce.
"It is unknown where things stand in the dealmaking process as Warners would not comment, but sources say the studio feels Ayer is a good fit for the dark and edgy film," claims Variety.
The iPhone 6 has finally arrived! As is customary with a new iPhone release, people are patiently (and impatiently) waiting in lines and their homes for their new devices.
We went on Twitter and asked people to tell us about their iPhone 6 launch day experience. Some already got their phones, some were impatient, but most are just excited to get their new phone.

The Rock Band Network, which allowed players to create and sell songs for Rock Band, will no longer receive technical support from Harmonix.
Harmonix manager of community development Aaron Trites said in the announcement that the Rock Band Network "has been plagued with technical issues" since Harmonix stopped releasing weekly DLC in April 2013.
"Some of those problems were server side here at Harmonix, while others were entirely outside of our control," Trites said. "At this point, with Harmonix resources devoted to several other titles in development, we’re no longer able to operate RBN with the kind of consistency that it deserves. As a result, we will no longer be taking any submissions or releasing new content through RBN."
Lines are wrapping around street corners across the world. Pre-orders have been fulfilled. Apple enthusiasts are waiting on sidewalks and glued to their computer screens, because today, the iPhone 6 releases.
Analyst Gene Munster, internet specialist at Piper Jaffray, carried out a line count at Apple's Fifth Avenue Store in Manhattan –– as of 8 a.m. EST, there were 1,880 people in line. That's a 33 percent increase over last year's queues.
A number of users are reporting problems with the displays on their apps, saying they're blurry, and not up-to-date with the iPhone 6 software. This may be the case for a few weeks, or even months –– depending on the app –– as the resolutions are adapted to fit the new display.
Despite lacking Batman himself, the marquee superhero protector of the city it takes place in, FOX's Gotham is this fall's highest profile comic book TV show. With an impressive cast and an epic parade of cops and crooks to portray (basically everyone Gotham-related who isn't Batman), Gotham takes place long before billionaire Bruce Wayne decides to dress up like a bat and stalk criminals at night.
Acting under the unifying "What If?" premise of "What if Jim Gordon, as a rookie GCPD detective, was the one who investigated the Crime Alley murder of Thomas and Martha Wayne?" Gotham hopes to reinvent some of the characters and switch up some of the relationships in the Batman-verse.
