Mortal Kombat X Review: it has begun

Mortal Kombat X Review: it has begun

This is the Mortal Kombat you've been waiting for. Gone are the sweeping orb-like arenas of the 2000s, gone are the overly-complex schemes of the Kombat episodes of the lost era. Mortal Kombat X is a blood-stained dream come true: everything that made the original Mortal Kombat series a hit mixed with the graphics and technical finesse of today. While I'll always be a fan of the original lineup, even the new characters are fun to play and interesting to learn about - imagine that!

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided revealed, as dark as ever

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided revealed, as dark as ever

While advancements in technology bring us closer to a future where technology and human life are brought closer than ever, the future that games like Deus Ex depict are nothing like the dreamy high tech utopia that tech companies paint. Instead, it is almost like Blade Runner-esque dystopia that magnifies the already existing divide between those who embrace technology whole heartedly, even into their bodies, and those who abhor the very notion. Deus Ex: Mankind Divided puts that schism under a microscope, in a medium that is easy to grasp by almost anyone.

Limited Edition PS4 Batman: Arkham Knight bundle unveiled

Sony has announced the new Limited Edition PlayStation 4 Batman: Arkham Knight bundle. With the bundle comes a Steel Grey PS4 console decked out with a partial silhouette of Batman and a subtle emblem reading out the name of the game. A controller with the same steel grey color is included with the bundle, as well as the expected game. That's not the only bundle Sony will be offering, however; it has a second similar one up its sleeve, only for a lower price point and with less flashy designs for those who find that option more preferable.

Assassin’s Creed Chronicles is not a AAA release

Assassin’s Creed Chronicles is not a AAA release

Don't panic yet - Assassin's Creed Chronicles is not a replacement for the top-tier release of the series that's been happening for several years on end. Instead, Assassin's Creed Chronicles, all three parts of it, is an extension of the craft. Much like the game's separate release schedule for PlayStation 3 with Assassin's Creed Rogue, this game will be released separate from the main series. This game trilogy is a 2.5D game - that's two-and-a-half dimensional - as opposed to the 3D we see in the AAA releases for the series.

PlayStation Vue expands with AMC Networks addition

PlayStation Vue expands with AMC Networks addition

Sony's new PlayStation Vue service serves to compete with Dish Network's Sling TV and somewhat with the upcoming HBO NOW service, though Vue costs more than both and is in some ways superior (depending on your needs). On Friday, Sony announced that the service has expanded to include a few more channels, all of them being part of AMC Networks' lineup. This includes the AMC channel itself, as well as IFC, Sundance, and WEtv. Not all of them are available in every subscription package, however, a limitation that will be familiar to any cable subscriber.
