Stranger Things Renewed for Season 2

Stranger Things Renewed for Season 2

Given Stranger Things’ popularity, it should come as no surprise that it’s now been officially renewed for a second season. Season 2 will premiere on Netflix in 2017 with nine episodes, one more than Season 1’s eight-episode run. Matt and Ross Duffer — the Duffer brothers — will return as writers for Season 2, as well as executive produce alongside Shawn Levy and Dan Cohen. Netflix’s supernatural drama is a 1980s-set thriller that centers on the disappearance of a local boy in a small town and a mysterious young girl with powers that shows up around the same time he goes missing. Season 2 is expected to continue the story of the same characters, with Netflix’s video teaser (seen above) noting it will take place in the fall of 1984, one year after Season 1’s events, as the Duffer brothers had previously explained to IGN.

Assetto Corsa PS4/Xbox One Review

Assetto Corsa PS4/Xbox One Review

Assetto Corsa is a truly triumphant driving simulation. On consoles there’s nothing quite like it, and the fidelity of its incredibly convincing handling really needs to be felt to be believed. Is it the best driving simulator on consoles? Yes; Assetto Corsa is absolutely in a class of its own when it comes to its unflinchingly lifelike physics. But is it the best racing simulator for consoles, ever? No. Not by some margin. Assetto Corsa features a decent mix of cars (ranging from classic open-wheelers to bleeding-edge hypercars) and a modest selection of European tracks but, respectfully, Assetto Corsa wasn’t the best racing simulator released in the week it hit shelves. That distinction actually belongs to Codemasters’ F1 2016. Continue reading…

Watch Rogue One Toys Make Their Own Version of the Film

Disney has revealed Go Rogue, a series of fan films about Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, starring the film’s tie-in toys. Featuring Star Wars Lego, Funko Pops and more complex action figures alike, Go Rogue will be a multi-part series retelling the events of the film in slightly… sillier fashion. The first episode is below: Written by Kevin Ulrich and animated by Dan MacKenzie and Tucker Barrie, the series sees a group of well-articulated fighters going up against the plasticky ranks of the Empire in search of the plans for the Death Star (which, in this case, are Lego building instructions). It’s pretty much worth it for this shot alone: Continue reading…
