Legion: Who Is the Devil With Yellow Eyes?

IGN.com - Mon, 02/20/2017 - 13:01

To say that FX's new X-Men-themed TV series, Legion, is keeping its cards close to the vest would be putting it mildly. The series premiere raised far more questions than it answered about the nature of powerful mutant David Haller. What are David's ties to the X-Men? How much of what we're seeing actually happened, and how much was merely the hallucination of a dangerously unstable mind? When the heck is the show even taking place?

However, one of the biggest mysteries surrounding the show right now involves a strange villain called "The Devil With Yellow Eyes." This dark figure has a habit of showing up and silently tormenting David in his weaker moments. It's tough to say whether this character is even real or a figment of David's overactive imagination, but based on the comic book source material, we have a few ideas.

Mission: Impossible 6 will feature a few familiar faces and a different look at Tom Cruise's Ethan Hunt, according to the film's writer and director, Christopher McQuarrie.

Reports suggest Square Enix is considering bringing its MMORPG Final Fantasy XIV to the Nintendo Switch.

According to The Sixth Axis and Nova Crystallis, the statement was made at the Final Fantasy XIV Fan Festival in Frankfurt (surely one of the more beautiful bits of alliteration in the video game world) this weekend. After talk of bringing Final Fantasy XIV to the Xbox One a few months ago, it seems Nintendo's upcoming console could be on the list too.

Battlefield 1 Is Rarely as Cheap as It Is Today

Battlefield 1 is usually priced around the £40 mark and has never gone below £32, so it's kind of a big deal when it goes down in price. Today, you can score it from Amazon for £30.85, which makes it the cheapest Battlefield 1 has gone for.

Doomfist Might Not Be the Next Overwatch Hero After All

IGN.com - Mon, 02/20/2017 - 07:32

Overwatch director Jeff Kaplan appears to have poured cold water on the widely-held belief that the (possibly Terry Crews-voiced) Doomfist will be the next character released for the shooter.

In an Overwatch forum thread otherwise about new emotes for existing characters, Kaplan reconfirmed that "we have multiple new heroes being worked on right now", before stating that "

is not who you think it is."

Following subtle hints and a campaign by Brooklyn Nine-Nine actor Crews to voice the character, it's been the general assumption that Doomfist would be number 24 - Kaplan appears to be telling us that's not the case.

'Counter-Strike' Gets Invaded By An Unblockable Chat-Bot

Slashdot.org - Mon, 02/20/2017 - 03:34
An anonymous reader writes: "At least one intruder is taking advantage of a Counter-Strike: Global Offensive exploit to flood lobbies (even private ones) with text from chat bots that can't be kicked," writes Engadget. The attack "allegedly comes from one person," according to Kotaku, which reports that "It's a similar exploit to one found a few weeks ago, where typing messages into a lobby allowed users to rank up and down as they chose." The chat bot's text includes various complaints about Counter-Strike which it claims motivated the attack, including cheaters, hackers and "bugs that break the game," and it urges a one-day boycott "to proof [sic] them that we care about the game and want them to fix it."

Horizon Zero Dawn Review

IGN.com - Mon, 02/20/2017 - 03:01

There’s something about being dropped into a brand new game world and finding it to be dense with deeply considered lore, terrifyingly aggressive creatures, and tantalizing questions that leaves an indelible mark on the memory. Horizon Zero Dawn is one of those games, and it carves out a unique identity within the popular action-roleplaying genre. Coupled with wonderfully flexible combat and a story that touches on unexpectedly profound themes, I found it hard to tear myself away from Horizon even after I’d finished its main campaign some 40 odd hours later. 

A sense of urgency is established from the get-go, as Horizon’s premise is a big mystery that begs to be solved. The questions raised by protagonist Aloy and the primitive, feral machine-infested open world she inhabits kept me guessing throughout: what’s at the centre of it all? Although Horizon suffers from occasionally corny dialogue that belies its smarts, the broader ideas it prods at - the nature of creation, for example - are remarkably ambitious.

The Walking Dead: "New Best Friends" Review

IGN.com - Sun, 02/19/2017 - 22:04

Warning: Full spoilers for the episode below.

Man, what a weird episode.

Were the Garbage People of Trashlandia a part of the comics? The show is now past where I stopped reading so I don't know what's a straight adaptation anymore. Either way, I need some answers here. Maybe answers are coming. Maybe we'll get an explanation as to why these oddballs act like they've been living in a Mad Max apocalypse for two generations and not just a handful of years like everyone else, but until that happens the verdict is that these folks are pretty damned goofy.

Yes, "New Best Friends" introduced us to a entirely new community of zompocalypse survivors, but unlike the Saviors and Hilltop, who act like real people (and real d-bags), and the Kingdom, who live in an agreed upon delusion, the Garbage People feel like they all escaped from the same mental hospital.

Black Sails: "XXXII." Review

IGN.com - Sun, 02/19/2017 - 22:02

Warning: Full spoilers for the episode below.

After it seemed like Silver and Flint were one unit, one confident and united front, Chapter "XXXII" worked to start tearing their alliance apart right at the seams as Bones found a way into Silver's psyche and Flint went ahead, against Silver's wishes, and made a giant deal to end the entire conflict.

Not only do we have the inevitable Silver/Flint rift beginning, but the buried treasure is right at the heart of it. So while "XXXII" may not have been as roaring or thrilling as the premiere, or even last week's installment, it gave us some big storyline moves that definitely now show us a clearer picture of the fast-approaching endgame.
