Battlefield 1 Review in Progress

Battlefield 1 Review in Progress

Battlefield 1’s formula for large-scale, objective-driven warfare is as intense and theatrical as ever against the haunting, archaic backdrop of World War I. Its single-player campaign is a pleasantly surprising anthology of small, human stories that do a good job capturing the tone of the era and showcasing some of its most iconic weaponry and vehicles. But it’s the exhilarating multiplayer that most strongly capitalizes on the potential of this old-school arsenal, bringing a number of subtle changes that keep the combat balanced and smart while still allowing for the hallmark chaos that makes Battlefield such a fantastic first-person shooter series. The Battlefield series has not been known for the quality of its single-player campaigns in recent years, but Battlefield 1’s campaign is a pleasant surprise. Its objectives are simple, but it still does a good job of showcasing some of the era’s most iconic weaponry and vehicles. Continue reading…

What Did You Think of Tonight's Supergirl?

What Did You Think of Tonight's Supergirl?

And even as Kara dealt with this new foe, she also struggled to adjust to her new job as a reporter. We’ll have our review of “The Last Children of Krypton” up a bit later tonight. Until then, let us know what you thought of the new episode in the comments below.Continue reading…

Gotham: "Anything for You" Review

Gotham: "Anything for You" Review

Warning: Full spoilers for the episode below. Mad Hatter may have popped up right at the end (to kill a surrogate Alice and vow vengeance) and a grown-up Ivy may have had a small scene in the middle, but for the most part “Anything for You” was guest villain-free. Instead, it relied on the characters already in play to sell the underlying theme of loyalty and love, giving both Butch and Tabitha their best material in a long while. Yes, I half-expected Butch to die in this one (and not get sprung at the end by Tabitha) since everything about Nygma’s plot to trick him into making an attempt on Penguin’s life felt like a decent end for the character. Undone by Riddler, betrayed as a traitor to his belligerent boss, it would have been a good death for Butch. A fine exit. It felt like curtains. But he lives on. Hopefully, he’ll continue to remain relevant and not slink back to the sidelines. Continue reading…

How Supergirl's Superman Was Inspired by Donner, Man of Steel

How Supergirl's Superman Was Inspired by Donner, Man of Steel

Supergirl dug deeper into its depiction of Superman in the second episode of Season 2, “The Last Children of Krypton,” but there were also some big changes taking place in the series. Full spoilers for “The Last Children of Krypton” continue below. Superman, we hardly knew you. After two episodes on Supergirl, Clark Kent had to head back to Metropolis to return to Lois Lane and his job at the Daily Planet. The introduction of Kal-El after a season of build up kicked off what looks to be a strong sophomore season of Supergirl, with the show already showing it fully understands the brighter side of Superman with only two episodes.

WWE 2K17 Review

WWE 2K17 Review

In the last few years, the WWE 2K series has more or less bucked the iterative trend of the annual sports games it gets some of its DNA from by making risky but ultimately worthwhile changes to its formerly arcade-style formula. By comparison WWE 2K17 feels like more of a fine-tuning year. There are some welcome gameplay tweaks and additions that keep the in-ring action in top form, but while it takes a few small steps forward in some ways it has either remained stationary or slid backward in areas that have needed improvement for a while now. The first and most important thing, above and beyond the minutiae that’s so easy to get caught up in with wrestling games, is whether the actual wrestling feels right. And like last year’s game, 2K17 delivers the goods. It has a weighty, deliberate feel that really sells the power and impact of each open-hand chop and every double-underhook suplex. Developers Yukes and Visual Concepts have steadily added layers of tactical depth in the last few years that reward timing, planning, and decision-making in a way that makes matches fun beyond the simple joy of playing as your favorite wrestler. All of that holds true this year; even more so thanks to a handful of adjustments and additions. Continue reading…

Guardians 2: Vin Diesel on 'Goofy, Adorable' Baby Groot

Guardians 2: Vin Diesel on 'Goofy, Adorable' Baby Groot

Big things have small beginnings, and we’ll see that in action with Baby Groot in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. Voice actor Vin Diesel will return as Groot in the Marvel sequel. But he discussed with Collider recently how it’s different playing a character who’s transformed, literally, after dying and being reborn in the original Guardians of the Galaxy. “He couldn’t be more naive as Baby Groot,” Diesel said. “I always think of the Groot that we saw on the first Guardians as a college-level Groot, so he’s not fully grown yet, but he’s a man. “And once he sacrifices himself at the end of the movie, now he has to start all over, so to speak, but we’re gonna see this goofy, adorable, baby Groot thing running around the screen and just learning as he goes.” Continue reading…
