Dark Souls 3: The Ringed City Review - 1 hour 10 min ago

You’d expect the finale of the Dark Souls trilogy to be a grand, apocalyptic affair, and as far as its haunting new settings and frightening boss fights go, The Ringed City certainly delivers. But for all the cool new gear, spells, and thrilling tests of skill and endurance it throws at you, this final DLC adventure for Dark Souls 3 has its strongest moments tucked away in the quieter corners of its carefully crafted world.

This is the end of Dark Souls as we know it, and with it comes a host of exciting lore implications that tie back to previous games in the series. Most of those moments trigger startling revelations about this beloved world's past, but also a few thought-provoking questions about its future… even at the end of everything.

Four Years Later, Xbox Exec Admits How Microsoft Screwed Up Disc Resale Plan - 1 hour 28 min ago
An anonymous reader quotes a report from Ars Technica: We're now approaching the four-year anniversary of Microsoft's rollout (and subsequent reversal) of a controversial plan to let game publishers limit resale of used, disc-based games. Looking back on that time recently, Microsoft Corporate Vice President for Windows and Devices Yusuf Mehdi acknowledged how that rollout fell flat and discussed how hard it was for the firm to change course even in light of fan complaints at the time. In a blog post on LinkedIn posted last weekend, Mehdi writes: "With our initial announcement of Xbox One and our desire to deliver breakthroughs in gaming and entertainment, the team made a few key decisions regarding connectivity requirements and how games would be purchased that didn't land well with fans. While the intent was good -- we imagined a new set of benefits such as easier roaming, family sharing and new ways to try and buy games, we didn't deliver what our fans wanted. We heard their feedback, and while it required great technical work, we changed Xbox One to work the same way as Xbox 360 for how our customers could play, share, lend, and resell games. This experience was such a powerful reminder that we must always do the right thing for our customers, and since we've made that commitment to our Xbox fans, we've never looked back." It's an interesting reflection in light of an interview Mehdi gave to Ars Technica at E3 2013, when the executive defended Microsoft's announced plans for Xbox One game licensing. Mehdi, then serving as Xbox chief marketing and strategy officer, stressed at the time that "this is a big change, consumers don't always love change, and there's a lot of education we have to provide to make sure that people understand... We're trying to do something pretty big in terms of moving the industry forward for console gaming into the digital world. We believe the digital world is the future, and we believe digital is better."

True Detective: Season 3 Revived With Deadwood Creator - 1 hour 33 min ago

Following a two-year hiatus, True Detective will reportedly return, as work on a third season is now underway.

Entertainment Weekly reports that series creator Nic Pizzolatto has already written the first two episodes for the potential Season 3 and is working with Deadwood creator and Emmy-winning writer-producer David Milch.

However, HBO has not yet officially greenlit a third season and it's unlikely Milch will serve as the new showrunner if True Detective does indeed return. Milch is expected to only be involved with the screenwriting process.

Last year, HBO president of programming Casey Bloys gave an update on True Detective, saying the series is not dead, but HBO just doesn't "have a take for a third season yet." The network was also open to the idea of bringing in a new writer, with Pizzolatto supervising the new season. Matthew McConaughey has also expressed interest in reprising his role as Rust Cohle.

The 5 Most Promising WrestleMania Matches - 1 hour 55 min ago

We're less than a week out from WrestleMania 33 -- billed this year as the "Ultimate Thrill Ride" -- taking place live from Orlando on Sunday, April 2nd. Goldberg defends the Universal Championship against Brock Lesnar, The Undertaker faces Roman Reigns, Randy Orton challenges Bray Wyatt for the WWE World Championship, and more!

Now keep in mind that the 'Mania card isn't 100% solidified at this moment. There's some wiggle room, what with RAW and SmackDown Live still yet to air this week. Braun Strowman could be added to the Taker/Reigns fight. Some stipulations might be added to some SmackDown matches, like AJ vs. Shane-O-Mac and the SmackDown Women's Championship melee. Triple H and Seth Rollins still haven't officially signed their contract for their unofficial match, and guys like Samoa Joe and Sami Zayn aren't even on the card yet. So not everything's completely finalized. Still though, we want to check in and see which matches, as of now, we're the most excited about.

The Flash Creator on Their Approach to the Musical - 2 hours 56 min ago

Last week, the big musical episode of The Flash aired, as Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) and Kara Danvers/Supergirl (Melissa Benoist) found themselves trapped inside a musical world, thanks to the Music Meister (Darren Criss) - in an episode that brought together all three of the aforementioned Glee alumni and allowed them to show off their real life singing talent.

Dragon Ball Super Episode 83 Review - 3 hours 12 min ago

Warning: The following review contains spoilers for the episode.

Things slowed down this week as Goku returns to Earth to recruit members to fill the 10-person requirement for the Tournament of Power. During his search a side plot unfolded as Bulma and Vegeta welcomed their daughter into the world. Bulla’s arrival added some much needed excitement to the episode, as the opening minutes were very dull and tough to watch.

While everyone else is enjoying the newborn entering the world, Vegeta was his typical standoffish self but there were several well edited cuts to show his secret affection he just couldn’t allow anyone to see. There was also an emphasis on him giving Bulla a royal name, as Vegeta is still the Prince of all Saiyans, and the emphasis on this has me wondering what the future might hold for the newborn royalty. I also got a chuckle out of his parental tick: anytime Bulla started to cry, Vegeta would get upset and accidentally go Super Saiyan Blue.

MLB The Show 17 Review in Progress - 5 hours 49 min ago

Since receiving a final copy of MLB The Show 17, I’ve put in about 15 hours playing games and exploring the different modes. While a full review is coming later this week, I can say that this year’s version of the game is already impressing me.

The expectations are set high early, with a surprisingly good opening video; it’s definitely worth watching at least once. From there, the menus have been given a fresh look. They continue to be easy to navigate and put the stuff used most often right up front.

In-game, lighting looks like it has been improved, even after the attention it has received over the past few years. Day games are especially vibrant. I continue to be impressed by the MLB The Show 17’s ability to communicate the time of day and year based solely on changes in the sky and lighting.
