At long last, you and your friends can finally settle the debate of who would win in a fight, Jason Voorhees from Friday the 13th fame or the Predator, a ruthless extraterrestrial that's physically intimidating, skilled at hunting, and has access to advanced technology. But first you'll need to pick up the Predator DLC bundle for Mortal Kombat X. Included in the bundle are three extra skins, one each for Commando Johnny, Infrared Scorpion, and Carl Weathers (Dillon in Predator) as Jax. If you purchased the Kombat Pack season pass ($29.99), you can download the DLC today, otherwise you'll have to... Read more...
There's still going to be a Batman game released this fall, it just won't be Batman: Arkham Knight. Instead, you'll have to get your DC superhero fix with Lego Batman 3: Beyond Gotham, which is still scheduled for this fall (knock on wood). As for the Arkham Knight, Warner Bros. delayed the launch until June 2, 2015, though if you're super anxious with excitement, you can place your pre-order today. The delay gives developer Rocksteady more time to flesh out the expansive open-world setting and squash any annoying bugs it might discover between now and its release. As the final game in the Arkham... Read more...
Usually when bleeding edge software and hardware first come out, there's a chicken or the egg scenario. We're not seeing that with the shift to 4K ultra high definition (UHD) -- hardware makers aren't waiting on media companies to come out with content and vice versa. As we've said in the past, this doesn't mean you should trash your 1080p television, but if you're willing to invest in a 4K TV or monitor, there are going to be 4K videos for you to watch. Amazon and several key partners are making sure of that. While hardware makers are announcing 4K displays at CES, Amazon on Monday said it is... Read more...
Why did Robot Chicken cross the road? To get to Netflix, of course.

Hobbit game publisher Kabam announced that it secured investments from Warner Bros. Entertainment and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios (MGM). Terms of the deal were not disclosed, though it should be noted that Warner Bros. owns the rights to the upcoming trilogy of Hobbit films. "Partnering with Warner Bros. and MGM is a natural fit for Kabam as we create new story lines and extensions of Hollywood studios’ intellectual properties for millions of gamers worldwide," said Kabam co-founder and CEO Kevin Chou. "Either Kevin Tsujihara or Gary Barber would be a tremendous addition to any growing entertainment... Read more...
Is Facebook really a place people will go to check out feature-length movies? Only time will tell, but clearly the initial test has gone well, otherwise we highly doubt Warner Bros. would continue to pursue it. And pursue it they are. The company has just revealed that they will start to offer five new movies for rent directly on the social networking site, and these are just dusty, old movies, these are hits. Inception, Harry Potter & the Sorcerer's Stone, Harry Potter & The Chamber of Secrets, Life as we know It, and Yogi Bear are all making the cut, all of which are exceptionally popular....

Now this is an interesting twist on things. Digital downloads have been on the rise in recent years, that's for sure. But streaming has been reserved mostly for set-top boxes and Web Browsers. Starting this week, Warner Bros. will begin to offer movies through Facebook. Facebook feels like a pretty random place to hawk movies, but then again, the site has hundreds of millions of users, so it's a pretty wide platform to advertise on. For now, the studio is just testing out select movie rental / purchases through Facebook movie pages, and users will be able to use Facebook Credits to easily buy or... Read more...
