The Red Turtle Review - Sun, 02/12/2017 - 15:33

There is a distinct challenge in writing about director Michael Dudok de Wit's animated feature, and Oscar nominee, The Red Turtle. Any synopsis of the movie that goes beyond the briefest of paragraphs could easily reduce the magic experienced by those watching the movie for the first time. Similarly, talking about various other aspects of the film (sound, color, music, etc.) and using the wrong examples to ground that discussion could, again, lessen the magic, and The Red Turtle is indeed magic. Pure magic.

So, what's it about? A solitary man is lost at sea, but manages to make his way to an island. Upon exploring the island, this man, never named, finds he is the lone human inhabitant but that many other creatures exist around him. As with any number of movies with a similar starting point, our hero must find a way to survive on the island and, potentially, make his way off of it.

LEGO Batman Tops 50 Shades Darker, John Wick 2 - Sun, 02/12/2017 - 13:45

The LEGO Batman Movie debuted in first at the domestic box office this weekend, outpacing Fifty Shades Darker and John Wick: Chapter Two with an estimated $55.6 million.

As noted by Variety, the new animated film from Warner Bros., which had a production budget of $80 million, enjoyed the biggest opening of 2017 so far. That said, The LEGO Batman Movie fell short of projections, with some analysts expecting the film to make over $60 million during its first weekend in theaters.

For our thoughts on the family-friendly feature, which stars Will Arnett as the Caped Crusader, Michael Cera as Robin and Zach Galifianakis as Joker, read IGN's The LEGO Batman Movie review.

Humans: Season 2 Review - Sun, 02/12/2017 - 11:22

This is a non-spoilery review for all eight episodes of Humans: Season 2. These episodes have already aired overseas, but since they won't premiere here until Monday, February 13th on AMC, this review won't delve into story-specific twists and turns.

Humans is back with a busy, satisfying second season that solidly builds on the world created back in Season 1 and expands it outward and upward in believable and mostly-grounded ways. There are still, a times, a few too many moving parts happening at once, and the show sometimes strains under its noble effort to show all sides of the A.I. argument simultaneously, but there are some very effective moments in Season 2 -- some shockingly poignant beats -- that really showcase the series' ability to strum your heartstrings.

Why Tekken 7 May Have a Bright Future as an eSport - Sun, 02/12/2017 - 05:54

Tekken 7 is in great shape. Not only is it built atop more than two decades of foundational gameplay, but this latest instalment has also steadily evolved over the last two years. Games that are rooted in an arcade scene, after all, have their own unique journey. In this case, Tekken 7 was first sighted in Japanese and Asian arcades in March 2015, spending more than a year there being tested by many of the world’s best players. It saw a significant update in July 2016 – with Fated Retribution - which introduced a new mechanic (Rage Drive), new characters (including Akuma from Street Fighter) and new stages. And now, the game is finally making its way to PC, PS4 and Xbox One.

Valve Is Shutting Down Steam's Greenlight Community Voting System - Sat, 02/11/2017 - 05:00
Valve's crowdsourced Greenlight submission program, which let the gaming community select which games get chosen for distribution via Steam, is shutting down after nearly five years. It will be replaced with a new system called Steam Direct that will charge developers a fee for each title they plan to distribute. The Verge reports: Steam Greenlight was launched in 2012 as a way for indie developers to get their games on Steam, even if they weren't working with a big publisher that had a relationship with Valve. Steam users would vote on Greenlight games, and Valve would accept titles with enough support to suggest that they'd sell well. Kroll says that "over 100" Greenlight titles have made $1 million or more. But Greenlight has also had significant problems. Developers could game the system by offering rewards for votes, and worthy projects could get lost amidst a slew of bad proposals. Since Valve ultimately made the call on including games, the process could also seem arbitrary and opaque. The big question is whether what's replacing it is better. To get a game on Steam Direct, developers will need to "complete a set of digital paperwork, personal or company verification, and tax documents similar to the process of applying for a bank account." Then, they'll pay an application fee for each game, "which is intended to decrease the noise in the submission pipeline" -- a polite way of saying that it will make people think twice before spending money submitting a low-quality game. Steam Direct is supposed to launch in spring of 2017, but the application fee hasn't been decided yet. Developer feedback has apparently suggested anything from $100 -- the current Greenlight submission fee -- and $5,000.
