Back to the Future Monopoly includes DeLorean token

Monopoly — it’s that game that starts out well enough, and after a couple hours devolves into arguments and money throwing. Or something like that. If you’re still willing to broach the board and spend a few hours dominating the make believe business world, you’ll soon have a new variant to enjoy: a Back to the Future edition. The board features iconic imagery from the movies (all three, as this is the “trilogy edition”), including a giant shiny DeLorean hovering in the centermost section beneath the Monopoly logo.

PS Now finally comes to the PS Vita, God of War III in tow

PS Now finally comes to the PS Vita, God of War III in tow

Sony is slowly, very slowly, but also very surely, expanding the coverage of its game streaming platform. Almost a month after it has flipped the switch for, rather ironically, some of Samsung's Smart TVs, Sony is now enabling PlayStation Now on its own portable and TV devices, namely, the PS Vita and the PS TV. Of course, it wouldn't be much fun if that's all that Sony has in store in its announcement. It has also expanded the lineup of games available on PS Now to include, among other things, the gory God of War III.

Iron Man invades not your screen but your GTA V game

Iron Man invades not your screen but your GTA V game

GTA V just got a bit more Marvelous, so to speak. And at least unofficially. That is, only if you have a PC copy of the game. Carrying on the venerable tradition of modifying, or modding, just PC games, Brazilian coder extraordinaire JulioNB included something, or someone, in the latest installment of Grand Theft Auto that you wouldn't normally find on the streets. Not unless you're in Marvel's world, of course. Yes, the Iron Man has come to San Andreas and, unlike (or very much like), the comic book superhero, he's in a very destructive mood.

ZombiU heading to PS4, Xbox One, and PC as ‘Zombi’

ZombiU heading to PS4, Xbox One, and PC as ‘Zombi’

It has been a few years since ZombiU, the zombie game for Nintendo's Wii U, made its first appearance. The game came about in 2012, and by summer 2013 its maker, Ubisoft, failed to see a profit from the game -- something that was more damning of the Wii U than anything else. The game was originally meant to be a Wii U exclusive, but a few years ago it was mentioned that it may arrive on other consoles, and the very poor reception on the Wii U spurred that toward reality.

Five Nights at Freddy’s movie director tipped: Gil Kenan

In early April, it was announced that the mild horror game Five Nights at Freddy’s will be turned into a movie by Warner Bros., which acquired the film rights earlier this year. That rights acquisition wasn’t just a move to cut off other potential studios — Warner Bros. is actively working on production plans, and we’ve already been teased by what they include. Seth Grahame-Smith, David Katzenberg, and Roy Lee have already been revealed as on-board, and now the film’s director has been leaked.

Windows 10’s bundled Solitaire includes advertisements

Windows 10’s bundled Solitaire includes advertisements

Solitaire comes with Windows 10, but it's not the Solitaire you've come to know and love. The latest version of Windows includes Microsoft's Solitaire Collection bundled, and as it did in Windows 8.1, the free version will come with a side order of advertisements. If you don't like the advertisements, you don't have to put up with them -- Microsoft will let you pay a subscription fee to drop the ads and get some relatively pointless digital coins and in-game boosts.
