It's out now. Just watched the first episode and rather liked it. Going to binge the rest over the weekend.
The second season is already well into production, with Noomi Rapace joining the cast.
lol these prices
If the 2060 models offer ~1070 performance in the same price bracket as the current 1060 lineup then I might bite.
AMD better pull their fingers out, especially with Intel stepping into the fray next year.
Recently finished Shadow Tactics: Blades of the Shogun, which I absolutely adored. Sort of like Commandos but in Edo-period Japan.
Officially renewed for a fourth season, starring Chris Rock:
In 1950, at the end of two great American migrations - that of Southern Europeans from countries like Italy, who came to the US at the turn of the last century and settled in northern cities like New York, Chicago - and African Americans who left the south in great numbers to escape Jim Crow and moved to those same cities - you saw a collision of outsiders, all fighting for a piece of the American dream. In Kansas City, Missouri, two criminal syndicates have struck an uneasy peace. One Italian, one African American. Together they control an alternate economy - that of exploitation, graft and drugs. This too is the history of America. To cement their peace, the heads of both families have traded their eldest sons.
Chris Rock plays the head of one family, a man who - in order to prosper - has surrendered his oldest boy to his enemy, and who must in turn raise his son's enemy as his own. It's an uneasy peace, but profitable. And then the head of the Kansas City mafia goes into the hospital for routine surgery and dies. And everything changes. It's a story of immigration and assimilation, and the things we do for money. And as always, a story of basically decent people who are probably in over their heads. You know, Fargo.
Doesn't really sound like Fargo tbh, and season 3 was pretty weak :\
Probably best not to succumb to confirmation bias:

"To this day I do not know what 'telephone boost' is, maybe you can tell me?"
Most companies have such additional features, such as caller ID or voicemail.
I'm not sure what your £1.50 boost is though. You should be able to find out in your account settings page on the TalkTalk website.
HBO president Casey Bloys rejoiced to the TCA press corps this morning that the next installment of Deadwood is finally greenlighted with an October production start, which is what he forecasted at January’s TCA. He guessed there might be a spring 2019 debut but didn’t want to make that part official this morning, “Let’s get cameras rolling,” he said. Game of Thrones episodic director Dan Minahan is directing.
Finally time to schedule a rewatch of seasons 1-3 in preparation.
"but there was an unbreakable 2? and it was split??"
Yes, pretty much. The final scene of Split connects it to the Unbreakable universe.
Feels strange to be excited about the prospect of an M. Night Shyamalan film again. It's been so long...
I thought it was a fantastic season, episode 8 being one of the highlights.
My only real concerns were the amount of exposition (which somehow made a fairly simple plot seem much more complicated than it really was) and the over-use of the "Surprise! So-and-so is a robot too!" plot twist.
Apart from that, I loved the world building and the final after the credits scene left me salivating at the prospect of what is to come in the later seasons. The scope of the storytelling is beyond anything I've ever seen on TV.
Predators was great fun, especially Walton Goggins.
This looks like complete gash, though.
Renewed for a second season.
The next iteration, based on an idea by Borenstein, will be set during World War II and center on an uncanny specter that menaces a Japanese-American community from its home in Southern California to the internment camps to the war in the Pacific.
Prey for £9.99. I would snap that up if I hadn't already bought it in the black friday sale.
One of the best games of 2017.
Runs until July 5th.
All the discounts you've seen before, but again!
Over the shoulder RE4-style camera system as rumoured, what a disappointment :(
Some Bethesda highlights:
Rage 2 gameplay showcase
Doom Eternal (just a glimpse, full reveal at Quakecon in August)
Wolfenstein: Young Blood
Skyrim: Very Special Edition
Good Lord, they actually announced Dying Light 2.
IO Interactive and WB Games are both teasing some new Hitman reveal:
The WB Games tease appears to be for a racing game on first glance, but one eagle-eyed twittererer noted:
Hitman Season 2. Calling it right now. Here's why: The back of that racecar has Hamsun as a sponsor. Olivia Hall (side character from Hitman Season 1) is "currently involved in an operation about Hamsun Oil in Reykjavik, Iceland." Taken from the wiki. You're welcome.
WB Games recently signed a deal with IO to publish the Hitman series, so this should be a season 2 announcement. It better not be another bonus mission or elusive target.
Its that time of year again. Some rumoured titles I'm hoping to see:
new Splinter Cell
Resident Evil 2 remake (although not if the over-the-shoulder camera rumour is true)
Also really hoping there will be a Dying Light 2 reveal.
Handy chart showing the times of the big press conferences in each time zone, if you're into that sort of thing. The EA and Microsoft presentations are always good for a laugh. Every single sentence is dripping with buzzwords and marketing speak as they desperately try to convince you that you want what they're selling.

This has already been cancelled.
Senate votes to overturn Ajit Pai’s net neutrality repeal
The US Senate today voted to reverse the Federal Communications Commission's repeal of net neutrality rules, with all members of the Democratic caucus and three Republicans voting in favor of net neutrality.
I guess Comcast didn't pay off enough politicians this time.
Godawful colour scheme aside, I am definitely ready for a Mad Max-inspired open world shooter from the makers of Mad Max. I ploughed 70 hours into that game.
Gameplay trailer tomorrow.
They shot a pilot but SyFy decided not to go ahead with the show.
This is a trailer for a show that will never be.
Looks super generic and naff. Stunts I've seen a million times, cringey dialogue and ropey effects. Hopefully the CGI isn't finished in this trailer.
Also, is the character supposed to be mentally disabled in some way? Or is Hardy's accent really just that bad that he sounds retarded :\
Free for the next two days:
I sank 70 hours into this game. Loved every second of it.
