Toys”R”Us’ entire Comic-Con Exclusive toy lineup

SDCC exclusive toys begin to appear with Toys"R"Us at the helm, bringing on everything from Batman to Mortal Kombat X to Star Wars. What we're seeing here is a number of "exclusives" that aren't entirely exclusive to the event, thank goodness, including one massive toy set from the Star Wars Black Series from Hasbro. That's the most elite of the US-based Star Wars action figure lines here in the United States, coming correct with 3 3/4-inch inch figures and an ever-so-slightly-taller Rancor. What a beast.

Nanoblock teams with McDonald’s, makes food-themed sets

Nanoblock has teamed up with McDonald's in Hong Kong specifically to introduce some miniature food-themed Nanoblock sets. The sets are available for purchase at the McDonald's stores, and it's not clear if there's any plans to introduce the sets in other regions. There are several of them, and they -- as you'd expect, given the partnership -- are designed after some of the fast food chain's own food offerings. Only, they actually look tasty. They've turned out to be a hit among consumers.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980 Ti Review

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980 Ti Review

When we saw the NVIDIA GeForce GTX Titan X, we knew it was only a matter of time before the company brought heat to the slightly more pocket-friendly segment.

GameFly announces new game streaming service for Amazon Fire TV

GameFly, the video game rent-by-mail service, has long been compared to Netflix, at least, back when they mailed us DVDs. Now the company has made a new step towards becoming the gaming equivalent of the Netflix that focuses on streaming. Along with announcing their acquisition of Playcast, GameFly is launching a new game streaming service exclusively on Amazon's Fire TV. And they're not talking about the kind of games you'd find a smartphone, but big-name titles including the Batman Arkham series, Hitman, Darksiders, Red Faction, and games from the various LEGO franchises.

NVIDIA GRID calls dibs on 1080p60 game streaming

NVIDIA GRID calls dibs on 1080p60 game streaming

If some of the major companies in the gaming industry are to be believed, rentingstreaming games over the Internet is the future. Or at least the distant future. But while that type of business promises no downloads and no installs, it partly sacrifices quality on the altar of convenience. At least until today. NVIDIA is understandably proud to claim that it is the first in this part of the gaming industry, which admittedly doesn't have much key players yet, to offer game streaming in Full HD quality at smooth 60 fps rates on its GRID games on demand service.
