Super Smash Bros. for Wii U Features New And Classic Modes

IGN.com - Thu, 10/23/2014 - 18:17

Nintendo has confirmed a plethora of game modes set to appear in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U. While some old favorites return, new modes will also make their way into the brawl.

Though the basic fighting formats are returning, Timed and Stock battles, Coin Battles are also making a return. Additionally, Stamina battles will have you slugging it out until your fighter's hit points reach zero.

Classic mode finds you fighting a series of battles until you reach the final showdown. Though the mode appears in both the 3DS and upcoming Wii U version, they'll be very different experiences.

Unlike the 3DS version where you were able to choose a progression path, the Wii U version will advance you between stages based on how well you survive each encounter. You'll be ranked among the winners of various battles and have to dominate the final match.

Arrow Producer Bringing Archie Comics to FOX

IGN.com - Thu, 10/23/2014 - 18:17

An Archie Comics-based drama series called Riverdale is in development at FOX, produced by Greg Berlanti (Arrow, The Flash) and written by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa (Carrie). Warner Bros. Television is producing the project, alongside Berlanti Productions.

Deadline reports that Riverdale is getting a script plus penalty deal, meaning that if the show doesn't get picked-up to series, there will be financial consequences for the network. While this isn't a guaranteed pick-up, FOX certainly has incentive to advance the project.

According to Deadline, Riverdale is set to offer a "bold, subversive take on Archie, Betty, Veronica and their friends, exploring the surreality of small-town life — the darkness and weirdness bubbling beneath Riverdale’s wholesome façade." While Archie has often been known to be a Happy Days-esque ode to the 50's, this incarnation will be set in present-day.

Corsair K70 RGB Mechanical Keyboard Review

IGN.com - Thu, 10/23/2014 - 17:01

Recently, Corsair launched its Corsair Gaming line of products: a separate ship within the company’s armada, complete with aggressive new logo. But while this branding change is more of a centralization of their gaming peripherals (headsets, mice, mouse pads, and keyboards) than a complete overhaul of their product offerings, Corsair’s also released some new items to prove that the brand’s no-nonsense design ethos wasn’t tossed overboard during this branding change.

One of these is the K70 RGB keyboard, a variant of their wildly popular 104-key mechanical keyboard. It’s roughly the same mechanical keyboard Corsair released last year, with a nice weight, superb build quality, and sleek metallic finish, and comes with the choice of blue, brown, or red Cherry MX switches. What distinguishes it from its plainer sibling, however, is its customizable LED lights. Users can control the lighting scheme of the keyboard in a highly detailed way, be it the color of individual keys or the lighting effects that sweep (or don’t sweep) over the keyboard.

Catwoman #35 Review

IGN.com - Thu, 10/23/2014 - 15:25

Of all the many Batman-related comics in the New 52, none needed an overhaul as much as Catwoman. The series has struggled since the very beginning of the New 52 and that controversial first issue. Luckily, with Batman Eternal offering Selina Kyle a drastically different status quo, the opportunity is finally here for Catwoman to move in a new direction. While the book still has problems to contend with going forward, it's a much more interesting and unpredictable comic than it was a mere month ago.

DC might have been better off relaunching this series as "Selina Kyle #1" or something similar. Calling this comic "Catwoman" suggests a certain level of costumed adventuring that simply isn't present. The focus is squarely on Selina's new role as head of the Calabrese crime family She's traded her spandex catsuit in for a pantsuit, and even Batman himself is a minimal presence. This is a crime drama, not a superhero book. The grounded setting and grittier, more noir-tinged art style actually make this issue the closest thing to Gotham Central we've seen from DC in some time. It fills a much-needed niche in the Batman franchise.

IGN.com - Thu, 10/23/2014 - 14:25

Ubisoft has released the PC specifications for the upcoming Assassin's Creed Unity.

The specs are unsurprisingly a measure different than what the minimum specs for Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag were. Most obvious is the amount of RAM required, with Black Flag only needing 2GB to meet minimum requirements and 4GB recommended. Unity requires a minimum of 6GB of RAM and Ubisoft recommends you go with 8GB.

The full minimum and recommended PC specs to play Unity are as follows:

Minimum PC Specs:

  • Intel Core i5-2500K @ 3.3 GHz or AMD FX-8350 @ 4.0 GHz or AMD Phenom II x4 940 @ 3.0 GHz processor

WWE's annual Hell in a Cell event goes down live this Sunday, October 26th on the WWE Network (only $9.99 if you hadn't heard). Two matches will take place inside the titular Hell-filled Cell - John Cena vs. Randy Orton and Dean Ambrose vs. Seth Rollins. What match should take place inside the Cell that isn't taking place inside the Cell? Why, Paige vs. AJ Lee for the Divas Championship of course.

I spoke to WWE Divas Champion AJ Lee about, perhaps, one day battling someone inside that Cell, along with her thoughts about working with Paige, Total Divas, a future match with Stephanie McMahon. Plus, we talk about what comic books she's currently read, binge-watching The Walking Dead and the rise of the nerd.
