The Lumia 928 is the latest flagship Windows Phone device from Nokia, and the first high-end smartphone from the Finnish manufacturer to be sold through Verizon Wireless. In many ways, the Lumia 928 is not unlike AT&T's Lumia 920 — both feature a 4.5-inch display, 1.5GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4 processor, and 1GB of RAM — but the Verizon exclusive still has some unique tricks of its own, specifically its AMOLED display, new design, and the Xenon flash that accompanies Nokia's signature PureView camera.

Ready for some awesome news, Star Wars fans? Ready for some awesome news, animation fans? Oh, and ready for some awesome news, fans of Star Wars and animation? While the exact plot and characters are still top secret, we now know the title and the first details about the upcoming new Star Wars animated series, which has officially begun production.
Fall 2014 will see the debut of Star Wars Rebels, from Dave Filoni and Greg Weisman. The two animation powerhouses will be joined by Simon Kinberg, with all three serving as executive producers on the series and Kinberg writing the premiere episode.
For Filoni, this will mark his continuing career with Star Wars, coming off his work guiding the excellent Star Wars: The Clone Wars as that show's supervising director. Prior to The Clone Wars, Filoni worked on Avatar: The Last Airbender, among other credits. While Weisman hasn’t worked on Star Wars before, his previous animated series -- including Gargoyles, The Spectacular Spider-Man and the recently-concluded Young Justice -- have given him his own well-deserved fanbase in animation. Kinberg’s resume is in live-action film (X-Men: First Class, Sherlock Holmes), not animation, but he’s a big part of the upcoming new Star Wars feature films. He’ll be writing one of the stand-alone movies, set outside the new trilogy kicking off with J.J. Abrams’ Star Wars: Episode VII, while also serving as a consultant on Episode VII.
Television… the Final Frontier. These are the voyages of the Starship Enterprise… and that other Enterprise. And Deep Space Nine. And Voyager. Oh, and even that other Enterprise.
With Star Trek Into Darkness now in theaters, we've been on a bit of a Starfleet bender of late (read our Ranking the Star Trek Movies story here). And while undertaking the task of picking the greatest Star Trek TV episodes -- out of the 725 or so stories from all the different series -- is something of a fool's errand, we decided to give it a try anyway. It may not be logical, but hey, tell it to the Vulcans!
For all his gadgets and combat prowess, a younger, less experienced Batman fails to realize one thing: the Joker is not a villain to take lightly at any age. Even on Christmas Eve, the Clown Prince of Crime’s idea of a gift isn’t a toy, but a series of explosives tied to a nearby building. With Batman disarmed and stunned by a leaner, more true-to-the-comics Bane, the Joker (now voiced by Troy Baker after Mark Hamill made good on his promise that Arkham City was his last turn in the role), mocks his prey, taunting the Dark Knight before detonating his trap. Batman can do nothing but watch in horror as another landmark structure crumbles at the hands of a madman.
As you all know, Microsoft will be lifting the lid on the next Xbox on Tuesday, May 21st at the Xbox Reveal event – which you'll be able to watch live on IGN.
Aaron Greenberg, the chief of staff at Microsoft's Interactive Entertainment business, has promised that there will be "tons of exclusives" announced later at E3, but we thought it was as good a time as any to test your knowledge of the console-exclusives that have appeared on Microsoft's games machine to date.
Way back in darkest days of 2011 the embattled city of Detroit launched a Kickstarter campaign to raise funds to erect something that would buoy the sagging spirits of its loyal citizens. Something the whole city could gaze upon with pride and, just perhaps, shed a single, salty man tear. Something powerful.
That something was a 10-foot tall statue of RoboCop.
Update: Contrary to what we reported earlier, it seems Kevin Conroy will not be returning as the main voice actor for Batman in Arkham Origins.
A Warner Bros. spokesperson provided IGN with the following statement: "Roger Craig Smith is confirmed as the voice of Batman and Troy Baker is confirmed as the voice of The Joker in Batman: Arkham Origins."
Listening to the video of Conroy at the conference, he clearly says, "I can talk about it now, we've been working for about 9-10 months on the next Arkham."
This leaves us with three possibilities. Either Conroy is present in Origins in a framing sense, providing the voice of an older Batman reflecting on his youth, or he's providing the voice of another character in the game, or he's talking about the next-generation Batman: Arkham game speculated to be in development.

Resident Evil: Retribution actress Li Binbing, who played fan favorite Ada Wong in the film, has joined the cast of director Michael Bay's Transformers 4.
According to The Hollywood Reporter (via Chinese site m1905.com), Li Binbing is just the first of what's expected to be several Chinese actors to be cast in the film, in addition to those performers recruited from a much publicized reality show.
With the new Call of Duty: Black Ops II Uprising DLC now available on PC, PS3 and Xbox 360, fans of the multiplayer side of the game are truly spoiled for choice. So what are the most memorable Black Ops II maps? The ones that keep CoDers coming back for more month in, month out, eternally mashing that ‘replay map’ option? Here are our picks for the top five, in no particular order…
Long-range, sniper-rifle-loving players best gloss over this option, as it’s a dish best served with a side of buckshot from a point-running shotgun surgeon. Set in a rundown part of Panama City that certainly wasn’t the inspiration for the Van Halen song, you’ll want to switch to a close-quarters kit if you hope to make your enemies scream louder than David Lee Roth’s oft-quoted falsetto-chorus Pan-a-ma. At least that particular reference is in line with the ‘80s setting of the map; to date, the only Black Ops II map to borrow from the greatest time period for rock, action movies and the warming up of cold wars.
Iron Man 3 is undoubtedly a blast. If you haven’t already, go and see it Ironmediately. But, like most big action blockbusters, it has plot holes big enough to drive Hulkbuster armor through.
This FAQ attempts to answer some of the bigger questions you may have had about the film, and maybe even some you didn’t.
FULL SPOILERS BELOW!
So everything happens in this movie because Tony Stark made Aldrich Killian stand on a roof for an hour and a half?
Note: Full spoilers for the episode follow.
Well, it was time to get trippy on Mad Men again! After last season’s “Far Away Places”, which not only had a very unusual structure, but also had Roger Sterling on acid, this was Season 6’s turn to get very weird.
I'm assuming this episode will probably divide audiences, but I loved it. The “what the hell?!” of it all was established in the very first scene, with Ken caught in some sort of bizarre scenario that felt like a movie-inspired dream… but turned out to be very real, as we learned that Chevy is apparently a rather hellish client to deal with.
