Summer presses on and while San Diego Comic-Con looms, FX's The Strain readies itself for its big Season 2 premiere this coming Sunday.

Ushio and Tora Review

IGN.com - Mon, 07/06/2015 - 19:23

Warning: Full spoilers for the episode follow...

The first episode of Ushio and Tora doesn’t bring many surprises, but it serves as a great introduction to the comedic pair and establishes a great tone for the series. Even better, studios MAPPA and Studio Vlon are able to transfer the look and essence of the original Ushio and Tora ‘90s manga to the new anime perfectly.

The first episode begins with the tale of the Beast Spear, which lays the foundation for Ushio and Tora’s future partnership. I’d say it’d be nice to have their pact as more of a surprise, but with the name of the series, the opening theme, and the episode title (The Fate that Brings Ushio and Tora Together) there’s no hiding what happens between the kid and the demon. Regardless, the episode is still a ton of fun as it lays out the tone for rest of the series.

Ultra-Rare Wrestlemania Pinball Machine Is a Monster

IGN.com - Mon, 07/06/2015 - 16:52

The new -- and very limited -- WWE Legends of Wrestlemania Limited Edition (LE) machine from Stern Pinball recently joined AMC's The Walking Dead LE in IGN's growing pinball arcade. To capture the feel of wrestling in WWE Legends of Wrestlemania, the pinball machine's central feature is a miniature wrestling ring, which the game's ramps lead to. Once in the ring, the flipper buttons control kickers which bounce the ball around the ring. It's kind of hard to explain, which is why we created the video above.

There are only 400 copies of the Limited Edition in existence, and it sports both exclusive art and features. The "LE" version puts classic wrestlers on the back glass and side art (e.g. André the Giant and Hulk Hogan) alongside contemporary WWE Superstars, and also features a swank gold finish on the legs, metal protectors, and wire-forms on the playfield.

Many Key Destiny Red Bull Codes Have Been Compromised Thanks to Scammers

IGN.com - Mon, 07/06/2015 - 16:08

Scammers have figured out how to fake the Destiny promotional codes in Red Bull, potentially taking them away from legitimate buyers.

Kotaku reports that it didn't take long for the Internet to crack their code of particular numbers and letters in a certain pattern, unlocking the content. However, these codes are likely printed on existing Red Bull cans being used for the promotion, so exploiting the system this way may well be taking the code away from someone else.

Users have already complained of getting their codes legitimately and then seeing errors, indicating that someone else may have already cheated their way into it. The promotional codes are supposed to unlock a bonus XP consumable and a bonus quest, in preparation for the release of The Taken King expansion.

Portal Stories: Mel is a Free Prologue Mod to Portal 2

IGN.com - Mon, 07/06/2015 - 16:03

Prism Studios' Portal Stories: Mel is a mod that fills players in on the events that transpired between Portal and Portal 2.

Rather than the voiceless protagonist Chell from Valve's original Portal games, Portal Stories focuses on Mel, a woman who took part in a faulty science experiment and mistakenly fell asleep for a few years. After waking up, she has to piece together what happened in the Aperture Science laboratories while armed with the series' iconic Portal Device.

Containing 22 levels, custom music, unique assets, voices, and an estimated 6-10 hours of gameplay, Portal Stories: Mel is a community-made mod available free on Steam. Those who wish to download it should note that, in order for Portal Stories to work, they must own a copy of Portal 2 on PC. However, Portal 2 does not have to be installed in order for people to play Portal Stories.

Shenmue 3 Now Among Kickstarter's Top 10 Successes

IGN.com - Mon, 07/06/2015 - 15:28

Yu Suzuki's Kickstarter for Shenmue III has climbed its way past Torment: Tides of Numenera to claim its place as the second highest funded video game on the crowdfunding website.

Could Life Be Hiding on Comet 67P?

IGN.com - Mon, 07/06/2015 - 15:26

A couple of scientists from the University of Cardiff are pushing the view that alien life could be hiding in the icy nether-regions of comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko.

Professor Chandra Wickramasinghe and his colleague Dr. Max Wallis believe the black crust of 67P is most likely explained by the presence of living microorganisms dwelling just beneath the comet's surface.

However, most other scientists think Wickramasinghe and Wallis are full of their own type of organic matter, one produced from the posterior regions of a male Bos Taurus.

According to a report from io9, Wickramasinghe's claim that evidence pointing to the comet containing living organisms is unfounded. Phil Plait, author of the Bad Astronomy blog, tweeted the "outrageous claim" of life on comet 67P isn't helped at all by "sloppy methods and fringe science."

Id isn't holding back about the new Doom. According to Garrett Young, General Manager at id Software, the "next big info update" on Doom will be at QuakeCon later this month.
