assassin's creed syndicateUsually when movies are made about video games, they tend to deviate from the game’s original story. We suppose this is done because the story has already been played out, and also maybe because some directors don’t want to step on the toes of hardcore fans of these movies, but so far most video game-cum-movies have turned out rather badly.

However could things change with the Assassin’s Creed movie? According to a tweet by the Assassin’s Creed Twitter account, it has been revealed that the movie and the games will all be connected to each other. Not just limited to game, but it will also affect future comics and books that are made about the Assassin’s Creed universe. Read full post →Assassin’s Creed Movie Will Tie-In With The Games

Square Enix’s Final Fantasy XV has been in the works for a while now, and we’re sure many are curious as to when the game will be released. In fact it was last year that we were treated to some gameplay footage, so it should be soon, right? The good news is that while it isn’t necessarily soon, we at least have a timeframe to look forward to.

Announced at PAX Prime, the game’s director Hajime Tabata has revealed that Final Fantasy XV will be released in 2016, or so we hope. According to Tabata, he stated that Square Enix will be holding a special event in March 2016 where the game’s release date will be revealed. We can only imagine that the release will probably be in the same year, otherwise that would just be mean! Read full post →Final Fantasy XV Has Been Pegged For A 2016 Release

warcraft logoUntil today, the public has yet to see any kind of footage from the upcoming Warcraft movie. We have seen photos, but an officially released trailer has yet to make its way online. Heck, the closest thing we got was footage leaked from Comic-Con which has since been taken down, but if that wasn’t enough, you’re in luck.

It seems that thanks to a new leak, additional footage of the movie has made its way online. Based on what we’ve seen, this appears to be the trailer for the movie which hopefully will be released in the near future. The footage appears to be very heavy with the amount of CGI used, which may or may not be a bad thing based on the final product. Read full post →New Warcraft Movie Footage Leaked Online

lenovo phbWhen you think of phablets, what is the maximum size before you would consider it a tablet? We suppose with 7-inch tablets out there, we’d guess 7-inches for a phone would be the max and even then that’s a bit ridiculous. However over in China, Lenovo is really pushing the envelope as the company has announced the Lenovo Phab Plus.

Now you probably can’t really tell from the photo, but the device pictured above sports a whopping 6.8-inch display. Yes, you read that right, it was not a typo and we meant to say 5.8-inches, this is a smartphone whose display could almost rival that of the Google Nexus 7, so you can only imagine how big that is as far as smartphones are concerned.

Xiaomi-Millet-Edge-3When Samsung launched the Galaxy Note Edge last year, it was done as an experiment to gauge customer interest. Turns out it was relatively well-received, so much so that Samsung came back this year with two curved edge devices in the Galaxy S6 Edge and the Galaxy S6 Edge+. However it looks like Xiaomi wants in on the fun as well.

According to rumors out of China, it seems that Xiaomi is working on a similar kind of device known as the Xiaomi Mi Edge. Whether or not the rumors are true remains to be seen, but according to the rumored specs, the handset will be pretty powerful. It will feature a 5.2-inch QHD display and will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 processor under the hood. Read full post →Xiaomi Mi Edge Rumored To Sport Dual Curved Edges

johnlegereUnlimited data is cool. You get to surf all you want, watch all the videos you want, stream all the songs you want, video chat, and more without having to worry about your data cap. You can even tether it to a laptop in a pinch should your WiFi not be working. However unsurprisingly there are some users out there who are abusing it to the max, and T-Mobile is not happy.

In a post on T-Mobile’s website by the carrier’s CEO John Legere, he basically states that they will be going after users who are openly abusing the carrier’s unlimited data plan. According to Legere, “This week, I am taking aim at a select group of individuals who have actually been stealing data from T-Mobile. If their activities are left unchecked their actions could eventually have a negative effect on the experience of honest T-Mobile customers. Not on my watch.” Read full post →T-Mobile To Take Action Against Unlimited Data Abusers

burning manIf you’ve ever seen photos of the Burning Man event, you will have realized that this is an event unlike any other. It seems to encourage all kinds of self-expression and according to the event’s description, it’s been called “an experiment in community, art, radical self-expression, and radical self-reliance.”

That being said, it seems that two companies that pride themselves in experiments are rumored to be interested in creating a permanent Burning Man. This is according to a report from NYMag who claims that Google’s Sergey Brin and Tesla’s Elon Musk have recently taken a tour of a property in Northern Nevada which could play home to a permanent community that houses the ideals and principles of Burning Man.

ios 9 bannerWhen iOS 9 was announced, it was discovered that within Safari, Apple has allowed developers to create apps that could potentially block certain types of content from being displayed, such as ads, although we can only imagine the feature was probably designed to block potentially harmful media.

Unsurprisingly in a report from The Wall Street Journal, publishers aren’t too happy about the feature. Given how many iPhone owners there are in the world, implementing this feature could dramatically reduce the number of eyeballs looking at ads, which at the moment is estimated to be a $70 billion a year business.

lg watch urbane luxe_1Earlier this year the LG Watch Urbane was announced. This was probably the classiest smartwatch we’ve seen from LG and probably from other smartwatch makers as well, but it looks like LG will be taking it to an even higher level. The company has officially announced the LG Watch Urbane Luxe, which is basically a 23-karat gold version of the original.

This essentially confirms our earlier rumor that LG had a more premium version of the Watch Urbane in the works. The watch will be given the 23-karat gold treatment and will come with an alligator leather strap, and will be sold inside a piano-gloss lacquer case, which you can check out in the photos below.

mortal kombat xWhen Mortal Kombat X was launched, it was announced that it would be arriving on last-gen consoles as well, like the PlayStation 3 and the Xbox 360. However earlier this year we reported that its release was delayed to the summer, and now it looks like Warner Bros. has decided to cancel the launch on last-gen consoles entirely.

According to a post on the Warner Bros. forums, “After months of development, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment has come to the regrettable conclusion that we cannot release Mortal Kombat X for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.” Apparently this had something to do with quality issues that they felt they were unable to meet.
