Better Call Saul: "Off Brand" Review

Better Call Saul: "Off Brand" Review

Full spoilers for Better Call Saul continue below. Two and a half seasons in, Better Call Saul audiences finally got their introduction to the origins of Saul Goodman, the man of the hour. Coming off the excellent “Chicanery,” Better Call Saul dove back into the many characters’ storylines running throughout Season 3. We checked back in with Nacho, caught up with Mike and his daughter, saw Gus and a very familiar associate finding a new base (more on that in a bit) and even saw Chuck trying to adjust to the knowledge his illness is mental, not physical. But the real mic drop moment in this episode is Jimmy McGill taking on the identity of Saul for the first time. With any prequel series like Better Call Saul, we know this reveal is inevitable, and it’s fun how showrunners Peter Gould and Vince Gilligan managed to tie the reveal back to previously established scenarios. But what’s more interesting than how they incorporated the birth of Saul Goodman into the show is when he was introduced: notably, it’s after Jimmy’s big showdown with Chuck in last week’s episode. Continue reading…

Supergirl: "Resist" Review

Supergirl: "Resist" Review

Warning: Full spoilers for the episode below. At this point, I can’t help but be wary of all the Arrow-verse shows as they approach their respective season finales. Both Seasons 3 and 4 of Arrow felt significantly worse in hindsight after seeing how poorly they resolved themselves. The Flash’s second season wasn’t as bad in that regard, but those last couple episodes did wrap up the year on a pretty disappointing note. I can’t help but wonder if the same will be true for Supergirl’s second season. “Resist” featured some great character moments, but it feels like the show is spending too much time recycling familiar beats and not enough on pushing these characters in bold directions. Continue reading…

James Gunn Acknowledges Small Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2. Continuity Error

James Gunn Acknowledges Small Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2. Continuity Error

Marvel director James Gunn has admitted to fans that he made a minor error during one of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2’s post-credits scenes. Gunn good-humouredly conceded the oversight during a Facebook Live session he conducted with fans of his film yesterday. The scene in question, if you’re still here and/or aren’t concerned about spoilers from the film, is Stan Lee’s cameo at the end of the movie. “I actually read the Marvel fan sites and the Marvel message boards out there and a lot of times people have ideas that are somewhat off-base or silly or whatever,” said Gunn. “But one thing I found very funny and interesting is the fact that people thought Stan Lee is a Watcher… and that all of these cameos that he’s doing are part of him being a Watcher. So I thought that was one of the greatest things the fans came up with.” Continue reading…

Welcome to IGN Australia’s League of Legends tournament snapshot!

Gotham: "Light the Wick" Review

Gotham: "Light the Wick" Review

Warning: Full spoilers for the episode below. In a somewhat bottlenecked, scattered Gotham, Jim proved to be one of the worst moles in the history of undercover work while, simultaneously, the Court showed their hand as one of the most easily duped secret societies ever. There were sputtering moments of fun in “Light the Wick” – a chapter that featured everyone on the roster while barreling us forward into this season’s endgame. Presumedly, a climax that, like some other aspects of this final arc, comes straight from Batman Begins and the League’s plot to infect all of Gotham with a toxic gas meant to drive people mad. Jim facing off against Talon, and then watching Talon get torched by Firefly was a good bit of business. As was the return of Michael Chiklis’ Barnes – who the show is all-but calling Executioner now. Wrapping everything back around to the fall’s storyline involving the Alice Tetch virus is a nice way to make the season, which has been segmented into three different arcs (which two big breaks), feel tighter and congealed. Even just seeing Mad Hatter briefly, at the top of the episode, was a good callback. Continue reading…

ZeniMax Files Lawsuit Against Samsung for Gear VR

ZeniMax Files Lawsuit Against Samsung for Gear VR

Bethesda parent company ZeniMax has filed a lawsuit against Samsung for its Gear VR headset. According to the legal documents filed by ZeniMax, Samsung’s headset is based on ZeniMax’s intellectual property shared by id Software co-founder John Carmack in breach of an NDA. The lawsuit alleges that Samsung “has used, and continues to utilize, ZeniMax’s VR technology (or derivatives thereof) that was misappropriated by Oculus (now owned by Facebook) in its Samsung Gear VR which continues to be “powered by Oculus.”” ZeniMax is seeking damages, injunctive relief, court costs and “all other relief to which ZeniMax is entitled” as compensation. “Without this relief, Samsung will continue to profit unjustly at ZeniMax’s expense.” Continue reading…
