McDonald's Japan is Running out of Fries

IGN.com - Tue, 12/16/2014 - 17:33

A labor dispute has led to a shortage of French Fries in Japanese McDonald's restaurants.

Nearly 20,000 workers from the West Coast ports in the U.S. have been in talks with the Pacific Maritime Association since October, which has led to delays in exports to other countries. Being that McDonald's in Japan imports its frozen French Fries from the US, this delay in exports has led to a shortage of fries accompanying Japanese burgers.

Shipments of fries aren't expected to reach Japan until January 2015. Until then, the restaurant will be serving small-sized fries to customers in place of the usual variety of options.

Studio: Star Trek 3 to Be More Like Guardians

IGN.com - Tue, 12/16/2014 - 17:27

Paramount Pictures reportedly wants Star Trek 3 to feel more like Guardians of the Galaxy.

Roberto Orci recently departed the film as director, though he will retain a producer credit on the sequel. Trek 3 was to be his directorial debut after writing and producing the first two movies, but Badass Digest reports that his leaving the center seat may have been due to Paramount's wish to make the film resemble the Marvel blockbuster Guardians.

"They want the third film to be huge, and they want it to be huge overseas especially," says the site. "They look at Rocket and Groot and then they look at Keenser and they wonder why he doesn't have more of a role."

Columbia Pictures has released a batch of new teaser posters for its upcoming movie Pixels.

T-Mobile to Allow Data Rollover Soon

IGN.com - Tue, 12/16/2014 - 17:02

Beginning next month, qualifying T-Mobile customers won't lose their unused data at the end of each month.

T-Mobile's Data Stash program allows users to save unused data for up to a year, and also includes 10 GB of 4G LTE data to kickstart the collection, according to T-Mobile. The Data Stash program is included at no extra cost for any new or existing customer with a postpaid Simple Choice plan and extra high-speed data.

“Can you imagine your gas station siphoning unused gas from your car each month? The US wireless industry is even worse," T-Mobile CEO and president John Legere said. "With Data Stash, when you buy additional high-speed data, there’s no need to lose what you don’t use. That data is rightfully yours."

Apotheon: Greek Mythology and Gruesome God-Slaying Return to PlayStation

IGN.com - Tue, 12/16/2014 - 17:00

Much like God of War's Kratos, Apotheon’s hero suffers from a thirst that can only be satsified by the blood of the gods who have wronged him. Unlike the Ghost of Sparta, however, he’s not blessed with bulging biceps or deity-destroying powers. Despite being little more than a glorified stick figure in a loin cloth, though, the pissed-off protagonist can bloody the pages of Greek mythology with the best of them.

The anonymous human’s power comes courtesy of Apotheon’s physics-based battling. While the game — according to its co-designer and programmer Lee Vermeulen — mashes-up elements from the “open-world, Metroidvania, side-scroller, action-RPG, and platformer” genres, its nuanced combat is its crowning achievement.

With Batman's quest to resurrect his deceased son and former Robin, Damian Wayne, taking him to Apokalips, a showdown with Darkseid was inevitable.

Hands of Fate: Deck-Building Strategy Meets Batman Action

IGN.com - Tue, 12/16/2014 - 15:43

An intriguing blend of deckbuilding, roguelike elements, and RPG-flavored action, Hand of Fate promises a little something for everyone...even fans of Batman: Arkham Asylum’s freeflow combat system.

My demo doesn’t begin with a counter punch or cape-stun, though, but with a menacing masked chap peering at me from across a table covered in tarot cards. Officially dubbed “The Dealer,” the mystery man serves as both my narrator and nemesis. On top of laying the dungeon-crawling quest before me -- in the form of category-specific cards, such as gear, treasure, encounters, environmental transitions -- he taunts me by reminding that my eventual death will be determined by the luck (or lack thereof) of the draw.

Wrestling Wrap Up: Brock Lesnar Finally Returns to RAW

IGN.com - Tue, 12/16/2014 - 15:09

There's a lot to sift through this week as we head into the Christmas season dead zone - starting of course with the awesome spectacle that was NXT Takeover: R Evolution.

A sublime, exciting wrestling property that you'd think would draw more people to the WWE Network, as it is an exclusive. Especially now that the Network is monthly. So if anything, fickle fans could sign up (and then try to remember to unsubscribe by month's end) for 'Mania and the four quarterly NXT shows.
