Legend of Korra Episodes Return to TV

Tue, 11/25/2014 - 13:22

After Nickelodeon pulled The Legend of Korra from TV this summer in favor of online releases, sister channel Nicktoons will now begin airing new episodes of the show, only a few episodes away from its series finale next month.

Book Four of the series will continue on Friday, Nov. 28 at 9pm, with new episodes airing every Friday on Nicktoons, according to The Legend of Korra Facebook page. The episodes will also continue to be released online at Nick.com.

Nickelodeon announced Book Four's premiere date earlier this year, and many were surprised that the final chapter would premiere little more than a month after Book Three: Change ended in August. Book Three is also coming to Blu-ray Dec. 2.

Google Nexus Player Review

Tue, 11/25/2014 - 13:00

Between the Roku, Apple TV, and Amazon's Fire TV, there are plenty of tiny devices capable of getting streaming content to your televisions. When taking into consideration consoles, Blu-ray players, and smart TVs, it's likely that you have more ways to access services like Netflix and Pandora than you really need. Regardless, Google wants a piece of the pie, and its new Nexus Player is proof that a few failed attempts isn't enough to stop the developer from reaching its goal.

Seth Rogen Talks Steve Jobs Biopic

Tue, 11/25/2014 - 12:22

Christian Bale may be out of the upcoming Steve Jobs biopic, but Seth Rogen remains very much onboard to play the role of Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak.

We got a chance to speak to the actor about forthcoming film The Interview, and when the discussion turned to Jobs, he said that Universal looked set to take over the reigns of the movie following Sony's decision to back out, something Variety reported overnight.

"I’m not 100 percent sure," Rogen said when asked which studio was set to step in. "Last I heard was that Universal might be making it. I’m not sure that’s all finished up yet but I heard that’s what’s going to happen."

Evolve: Refueling Tower Map Reveal - IGN First

Tue, 11/25/2014 - 12:00

The Refueling Tower has seen better days. In exploring Evolve’s newest map, I was reminded of Fusion Plant, the first map we saw for Turtle Rock’s 4v1 shooter, and its lush jungle setting. But the Refueling Tower’s bayou-style surroundings, distinct wildlife, and destroyed environment gave it a distinct sense of place.

The refueling tower itself is a junkyard, with flaming rubble scattered after some sort of catastrophic event. Homes around the tower are mostly unaffected -- abandoned, but intact -- and have become the grazing grounds for creatures such as the incredibly powerful Armodon. Its an elite creature with a helpful perk in store for the Monster or Hunter than happens to kill it -- the damage resistance bonus could keep an escaping Goliath or Kraken alive longer as it makes its way to the river cutting its way through Refueling Tower.

This is What's in Sunset Overdrive's First DLC Pack

Tue, 11/25/2014 - 11:35

Sunset Overdrive's first DLC Weapons Pack is available now, bringing with it four new weapons for you to use.

The Plague Bomb, Rager, Shield Buddy and Multi-Lock Rocket Launcher are available now for those who've already purchased the game's previously-announced Season Pass, otherwise you can pick up the pack for $4.99.

Any enemies hit by the Plague Bomb instantly start vomiting and will take damage over time. As an added bonus, they'll explode on death and are able to infect those around them. The Rager, meanwhile, causes foes to become confused and attack each other in their frustration. They'll also explode when killed, because why not?

The Shield Buddy may sound like it has a more defensive theme and, indeed, it does protect you and your friends, but it'll also drop bombs that can take out your foes. Finally, the Multi-Lock Rocket Launcher does what it says on the tin and releases homing rockets at up to eight enemies at once.

An Interview With Seth Rogen About The Interview

Tue, 11/25/2014 - 10:45

Seth Rogen has been talking exclusively to IGN about his new movie, The Interview. The action comedy stars Rogen and James Franco as a producer and talk-show host who become embroiled in an international espionage plot, with the storyline already prompting North Korea to demand it be banned.

Thus far their efforts have been unsuccessful however, with the action comedy set to hit UK screens on February 6, US screens on December 25, and throughout the rest of the world in early 2015. We debuted the following trailer earlier today, while Rogen’s thoughts on North Korea, entertainment journalists, Oculus Rift and a sequel to This is the End can be read below…

IGN: Where did the idea for The Interview come from?

CS:GO eSports Community Shaken Following Revelation of Cheating

Tue, 11/25/2014 - 10:02

A hacking scandal has rocked the Counter-Strike: Global Offensive competitive scene.

The news comes just days before the Dreamhack Winter 2014 Counter-Strike Global Offensive (CS: GO) championship tournament due to take place from November 27 -30 in Jönköping, Sweden, with a prize pool of $250,000 up for grabs.

The three players who were caught cheating are named as Hovik "KQLY" Tovmassian of e-sports team Titan, Simon "smn" Beck of Team Alternate, and Gordon "Sf" Giry of Epsilon. All were caught cheating via the Valve Anti-Cheat System (VAC). It's alleged that the software used connected through a player’s Steam Workshop account.

ZombiU 2 Listed With 2015 Release Date on Amazon France

Tue, 11/25/2014 - 09:46

ZombiU 2 is set to release exclusively on Wii U in October 2015, according to an Amazon France listing.

Though it was swiftly removed, French site Jeuxvideo managed to grab a couple of screens claiming the title would be set in New York. The original game took place in London.

What's strange about all this is the listed distributor. Bandai Namco is down on the page but, as far as we know, Ubisoft still owns the rights to the property. It's possible that a deal was done somewhere  but, if not, then the French publisher must have had a change of heart, after CEO Yves Guillemot said in June 2013 no sequels were planned following the original's failure to achieve a profit.

Jimmy Fallon's Lip Sync Battle Gets TV Series

Tue, 11/25/2014 - 09:31

Lip Sync Battle -- the popular celebrity musical showdown that started as a game on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon -- is getting a TV series at Spike TV, with Fallon, John Krasinski (The Office) and Stephen Merchant (Hello Ladies and co-creator of the original The Office) producing.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Fallon, Krasinski and Merchant are also set to appear on the series, with yet-to-be-revealed celebrity guests, who will -- just as the game works on Late Night -- lip sync a song of their choosing in an ultimate battle. The show's host will also be announced at a later date. Emmy-winning Saturday Night Live and 30 Rock director Beth McCarthy-Miller will helm the series.

Super Smash Bros. is the Fastest-Selling Wii U Game in the US

Tue, 11/25/2014 - 09:06

Nintendo has announced Super Smash Bros. is now the fastest-selling Wii U game ever to release in the US after it managed to sell an impressive 490,000 units in just three days.

That number includes both physical and digital units sold between November 21 and 23, and means that the previous number one, Mario Kart 8, is relegated to second place. This now means the Smash Bros. franchise has sold more than 14 million units in the US alone since it first burst onto the scene back in 1999.

While this is great news, it's not unexpected. Before the game released, Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime revealed pre-orders were at a record high. With Black Friday and Christmas still ahead of us, it should be interesting to see what effect this will have on the console's sales figures.

DC's '80s Heroes Return in Convergence

Tue, 11/25/2014 - 09:00

It's clear that one of the biggest selling points of DC's Convergence event next spring will be the fact that it brings back many characters from the company's pre-New 52 history. So far the publisher has revealed half of the 40 two-issue mini-series that will tie into the main Convergence book. Today DC is shedding light on the next batch of ten books.

Whereas the first batch of 10 mini-series revolved around characters and storylines from DC's recent past, and the second batch focused on the DCU as it was in the early '90s, this latest batch turns the clock back even further to 1980's-era DC and the period before Crisis on Infinite Earths revamped DC's continuity. It seems that we can look forward to the return of teams like Justice League Detroit and the New Teen Titans, as well as retro-flavored versions of Superman, Wonder Woman, and Green Lantern.
