Mortal Kombat 2021 movie teaser: “Gore, blood, and fatalities”

Mortal Kombat 2021 movie teaser: “Gore, blood, and fatalities”

Today a big teaser was released (without a video, sadly) for Mortal Kombat 2021. This movie is a reboot, rather than a sequel to the first two films released in 1995 and 1997. This is also different from the series Mortal Kombat Legacy (the web series which was pretty neat in and of itself). Today the film spilled a few images ahead of the first trailer, which should be coming soon.

Bungie is deleting a bunch of classic Halo data soon

We are quickly approaching the end of an era for some classic Halo games. Bungie has revealed that it will soon be taking down stats pages for a lot of classic Halo games, so if you have anything you want to save from way back when, now is the time to do it. It actually isn't as bad as it sounds at first blush because the website Bungie is taking offline hasn't been updated in nearly a decade, but some of those who played the Bungie-made Halo games when they were new may appreciate the opportunity to save their data anyway.

Blizzard Battle.net gets a much-needed redesign

Blizzard Battle.net gets a much-needed redesign

Although Steam has become the de facto game store and community platform on PCs, almost every major publisher has its own little island to speak of. Actually predating even Steam, Blizzard's (now Activision Blizzard) Battle.net has always been the go-to for fans of Diablo, WarCraft, and, more recently, Overwatch. Despite its heavy use, the Internet portal turned Desktop app hasn't seen much action in terms of design. The latest update doesn't exactly overhaul Battle.net but it does finally let it catch up to its peers.

Epic Games brings Fortnite battle against Apple to the UK

Epic Games brings Fortnite battle against Apple to the UK

The calendar has switched to another year but some things have unsurprisingly remained the same. COVID-19 still threatens the world's population, Big Tech is still on trial for various things, and Fortnite remains absent on iPhones. Despite being one of last year's highest-profile dramas, the fight between Epic Games and Apple seems to still have no resolution in sight. As if to stir things up again, Epic Games has apparently filed an antitrust complaint against Apple and even Google, this time in the United Kingdom across the pond.

Cyberpunk 2077 launch disaster explained – CD Projekt co-founder spills all

Cyberpunk 2077 launch disaster explained – CD Projekt co-founder spills all

If you've read or watched anything concerning Cyberpunk 2077 since the game launched last month, chances are you've heard of the litany of problems the game has, particularly on previous-generation consoles. The state of the game prompted a rarely-seen response from Sony in which it delisted the game from the PlayStation Store and, along with Microsoft, started offering refunds to anyone who wanted them. It's been just over a month since Cyberpunk 2077 launched, and now CD Projekt co-founder Marcin Iwiński has released a statement detailing what went wrong with the game.
