Destiny 2: Beyond Light - Release Date, Exotics, Content Vault, And Everything Else We Know

Wed, 10/21/2020 - 10:45

Bungie has confirmed it: You don't need to gear up for a new Destiny game. Instead, the developer is going to continue to support Destiny 2 into the foreseeable future, meaning that most of the things you've acquired, from premium cosmetics to hard-to-earn weaponry, will stay with you in Destiny for years to come. But although we won't be seeing Destiny reset with a new game the way it did with Destiny 2, it is about to get a substantial shakeup. The next big expansion for Destiny 2 is Beyond Light, and it's going to create some major changes when it arrives.

Beyond Light will majorly alter Destiny 2 as we know it. It marks the return of some big pieces of Destiny 1 content, including the Vault of Glass raid--but several locations and pieces of content that have been part of Destiny 2 since its release are being removed. Beyond Light will also change the onboarding experience for new players and is bringing the game to the next generation of game consoles.

We've run down all the details that are available about Beyond Light so far so you can see exactly what's ahead for the next chapter of Destiny 2.

Borat's Daughter Swallows The Baby In Glorious Clip For Subsequent Moviefilm

Wed, 10/21/2020 - 10:16

The legendary Khazak journalist Borat Sagiyev returns from his 14-year hiatus in just a few days for his sequel, Borat Subsequent Moviefilm: Delivery of Prodigious Bribe to American Regime for Make Benefit Once Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan. Before the film hits, though, we have a clip to let us know that Borat is going to deliver exactly what we're hoping for.

Borat (Sacha Baron Cohen) is once again touring America to poke fun at all of the country's political weirdness. This time, though, he has his daughter in tow. The identity of the actress playing his daughter is currently a carefully-guarded secret, though the internet thinks it might be Maria Bakalova. The two stop by a bakery in the Carolinas for cupcakes, and pick out one decorated with a baby. Borat's daughter accidentally swallows the toy, and the two head to a women's clinic for some help.

Lovecraft Country: Ending Explained

Wed, 10/21/2020 - 09:35

At the end of the day, Lovecraft Country will be remembered for the moments where it blended real life with fiction, and how it shone a spotlight on the more shameful, forgotten corners of our history. Thanks to this show, there's more people who know about sundown towns, the Tulsa Massacre, Emmett Till and the exploitation of Black bodies for scientific research, than before.

The horror in this show has never been about the monsters, or the ghosts and ghouls, or the uncovering of dark rituals. The horror is in the lived, cross-generational trauma of being Black in America. Despite its inconsistency and occasional impenetrability, the series will live on, due to what it represents and how it addressed discomforts and traumas that are seldom addressed, especially by a Black writer and showrunner like Misha Green.

Here's a breakdown of the ending for Lovecraft Country, for those of you who may have missed some episodes and are confused by what they just saw. You can also read our numerous reference guides to each episode, if you're just getting started.

Netflix Reveals Most Popular TV Shows And Movies For Past 3 Months

Wed, 10/21/2020 - 09:34

As part of Netflix's latest earnings report, the company announced new streaming numbers for some of its most popular TV shows and movies. These numbers should be taken with a grain of salt, as Netflix's numbers are not exact or perfect, but they provide a general overview of what's most popular on the platform.

Netflix's biggest new release during the period was the Charlize Theron movie The Old Guard, which was viewed by 78 million homes during its first four weeks. Coming in behind that was Enola Holmes (76 million), the Jamie Foxx movie Project Power (75 million), and The Kissing Booth 2 (66 million),

The Umbrella Academy's second season was viewed by 43 million households in its first 28 days, while the latest season of Lucifer was watched by 38 million homes during the same time period.

Twitch Streamers Are Getting DMCA Takedown Notices Again

Wed, 10/21/2020 - 09:23

Following the wave of Twitch's July DMCA takedown notifications, many streamers on the platform have received another round of emails warning them of copyright infringement on their channel. Instead of issuing account strikes, Twitch automatically deleted the content flagged. The platform went on to state that this is a one-time warning and advises users learn copyright laws.

the Twitch DMCA bloodbath has begun, as hundreds of partnered streamers have received emails from Twitch as DMCA takedown notifications pic.twitter.com/zoIoI7Q7Xp

— Rod Breslau (@Slasher) October 20, 2020

In other words, recipients of the email did not receive any long-term penalty--a strike--on their channel. Twitch also did not let users file counterclaims, which apparently is a policy that Twitch will keep going forward. In a tweet, the platform stated that it will continue to automatically delete any clips that contain copyrighted music without attaching strikes to accounts.

This content was identified and deleted for you, in accordance with its obligations under the DMCA. Going forward, Clips that are identified as having copyrighted music will be deleted without penalty to help ensure you do not receive DMCA notifications from rights holders.

— Twitch Support (@TwitchSupport) October 20, 2020

The situation is a little confusing, since if this email is a "one-time warning," what will Twitch be doing differently moving forward? If Twitch keeps its current policy of automatically deleting clips/VODs with copyrighted music, it appears that you probably won't get your channel closed if you have copyrighted music in past clips and VODs. (Though to be on the safe side, Twitch advises you to delete any clips you think might contain copyrighted material.) Your livestreams, however, could still be flagged with DMCA takedown notifications.

New To Amazon Prime Video In November 2020: Community, Scrubs, And Other Classic TV Shows

Wed, 10/21/2020 - 09:10

If you subscribe to Amazon Prime Video, you should be pretty excited because the streaming service has plenty of great movies and original content coming in the month of November. Check out Amazon's release list for the month below.

On November 1, Amazon will be releasing the bulk of its new content, and there is a lot work watching. The Danny Boyle horror movie 28 Days Later arrives that day. It's the movie that breathed fresh air into the zombie genre--even though 28 Days Later is about people infested with a rage-inducing virus and not so much a virus that makes people the living dead.

Also arriving that day are all three Expendables movies. Debuting in 2010, the film franchise is known for casting a bunch of new and old action stars and putting them in a high-octane adventure. Another action franchise lands that day as all three Underworld movies arrive. So if you love vampires fighting werewolves, you're in luck!

Netflix Acknowledges TikTok As A Competitor As Subscriber Growth Slows; Free Promo Coming To India

Wed, 10/21/2020 - 08:51

Netflix has released its earnings report for the latest quarter, and despite the pandemic still keep people at home, user growth slowed down compared to previous financial periods. To help improve matters, Netflix has also confirmed a new promotion where anyone can watch Netflix's content for free, but it appears this promotion may only be available in India.

Netflix added 2.2 million paid subscribers during the quarter, which is down sharply from 10.09 million subscribers added in the previous quarter and below Q3 2019, when Netflix got 6.8 million people to sign up for the streaming service. Netflix said it expected this downturn, and it pointed out that, for the first nine months of 2020, the company added 28.1 million paid memberships. For comparison, that number is greater than the total number of new subscribers for all of 2019 (27.8 million).

"In these challenging times, we're dedicated to serving our members," Netflix said.

Best Fortnite Gifts For Christmas 2020

Wed, 10/21/2020 - 08:44

Even though Fortnite is no longer the flashy new gaming trend, it remains one of the most popular games in the world. To call Fortnite a phenomenon would be something of an understatement; it has become a gaming staple much like Super Mario was when Nintendo's plumber dominated the conversation in the late '80s and early '90s. For that reason, if you have kids on your shopping list this holiday season, it's a pretty safe bet that at least one of them is a Fortnite fanatic.

Fortnite: Battle Royale is a free-to-play game, so all you need to start playing is a console, PC, or smartphone--though recent legal battles between Apple/Google and Epic Games have threatened Fortnite's playability on mobile devices. But even though the battle royale game is ostensibly free, there are plenty of Fortnite gifts that are sure to make fans happy this holiday season. From safe bets like in-game currency to action figures and Funko Pops to gaming chairs and board games, our Fortnite gift guide covers a lot of ground to help you pick out the best gift possible.

Fortnite V-Bucks $25-$40

The easiest and best Fortnite gift you can buy is in-game currency. Fortnite V-Bucks can be spent on Battle Passes and cosmetics. Anyone who is a dedicated Fortnite player has probably spent some cash on the free-to-play game. V-Bucks are compatible with every platform, so you can't go wrong here.

See at Amazon Fortnite: The Last Laugh $30

As Fortnite is free-to-play, it may seem odd that there are retail editions of the game, but they serve a purpose for dedicated fans. Fortnite: The Last Laugh is the latest bundle, and it releases November 17 for all major consoles. Though you get a standard game box, it doesn't come with a disc. Instead, it includes a code that unlocks 1,000 V-Bucks and a bundle of in-game Joker-themed cosmetics, including an outfit back bling, multiple harvesting tools, and much more. Fortnite fans who love Batman will certainly appreciate this bundle.

With people spending more time at home, there's never been a better time to invest in a quality gaming chair. For Fortnite fans, Respawn has created an ergonomically designed gaming chair with a slick purple and gray color scheme and Fortnite logo imprinted on the headrest.

See at Amazon Fortnite High Stakes-R Rocker Gaming Chair $210 (was $250)

This Fortnite chair is a bit different than your average gaming chair. As a rocker, it's designed for the living room rather than your desk. With that in mind, it's more spacious, with a wider frame and plushier feel. It reclines to roughly 120 degrees, so it's great for both gaming and lounging.

See at Amazon Fortnite Nerf Guns $25-$50

Nerf has released a number of dart guns based on weapons in Fortnite, including the Sp-R, which comes with a trio of Loot Llama targets to aim at. There's also the AR-Durrr, a dart gun with Durrr Burger iconography that rapidly shoots 10 darts thanks to its motorized design.

Disneyland And Universal Studios Reopening: California Issues Guidelines, Universal And Disney Respond

Wed, 10/21/2020 - 07:52

It's the question on the minds of so many theme park fans: When will Disneyland reopen? While there is still no set date, the state of California has revealed the guidelines that must be met in order for the parks to open. This comes after Disney announced it was laying off 28,000 workers, partially blaming the state for not allowing them to reopen. Don't get too excited, though, as it may still be some time before the gates open--a possibility Disney is unhappy about.

As announced by California's Health and Human Services Secretary Dr. Mark Ghaly, via The Hollywood Reporter, theme parks will be able to open at 25% capacity when the counties they exist in reach Tier 4 (yellow) status in the state's four-tiered system. The guidelines to achieve Tier 4 status are less than one new daily case per 100,000 people and less than 2% positive tests.

Currently, Orange County--home to Disneyland--is in Tier 2 (red), which means there are 4-7 daily cases per 100,000 people and a 5-8% positive test rate. Universal Studios Hollywood is in Los Angeles County, which is currently Tier 1 (purple) with more than 7 daily cases per 100,000 people and a positive test rate of over 8%.

Here's How To Upgrade Mortal Kombat 11 On Next-Gen Consoles For Free

Wed, 10/21/2020 - 07:51

Developer NetherRealm Studios has previously confirmed that Mortal Kombat 11 will be getting a free next-gen upgrade when the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S drop in November. Now, the studio has divulged how players can upgrade their fighting game at no extra cost.

The news comes during a recent Kombat Kast, during which members of the development team broke down MK11's newest fighter Rain. Toward the end of the broadcast, NetherRealm discussed the ways players can upgrade Mortal Kombat 11 to the next-gen version.

One way is by already owning or purchasing Mortal Kombat 11 on either PlayStation 4 or Xbox One. Doing so grants you access to the PlayStation 5 or Xbox Series X/S version. Another way for those who already own the base MK11 game is to preorder Kombat Pack 2, an add-on that includes Mileena, Rain, and Rambo, as well as skins for Noob Saibot, Liu Kang, and Skarlet.

Netflix's We Are The Champions Has Rainn Wilson Spotlighting "Weird" Competitions

Wed, 10/21/2020 - 07:45

Netflix has announced that The Office's Rainn Wilson will be executive producing and narrating a quirky new competition series titled We Are the Champions. The show, which is slated to debut on November 17, will feature "unusual competitions around the world… including cheese rolling, chili eating, fantasy hair styling, yo-yo, dog dancing, and frog jumping," according to Variety. In other words, the show sounds like an attempt to try to wind 2020 down with a light-hearted salve to what will no doubt be an exhausting final few weeks of the year.

"We Are the Champions' celebrates weirdness, finds beauty in idiosyncrasies, and demonstrates what it really takes to rise to the top: heart," Wilson said. "As a self-proclaimed expert on the unconventional, I'm excited to introduce viewers to these small-world competitors with big-world dreams because, in this time, we could all use a hero--be it a dancing dog or the world yo-yo champion."

Chris Uetwiller, CEO of the show's production company, Dirty Robber, added, "In a TV landscape that can be rather formulaic at times, We Are the Champions represents something refreshing and different." He also emphasized that the show is about storytelling that will surprisingly move people, asking, "Who knew people would ever be moved by cheese rolling?"

Power Rangers Expands Into Upcoming Film And TV Versions

Wed, 10/21/2020 - 07:05

According to a new release, the Mighty Powers will be "morphing" into a new connected universe of movies and TV adaptations. Jonathan Entwistle, co-creator of Netflix's I Am Not Okay With This, has been tapped to shepherd these upcoming new entries in the long-running series, which is sort of brilliant since the Netflix series similarly delves into high schoolers dealing with puberty and budding superpowers. Entwistle will be directing these projects across both formats.

"Jonathan has an incredible creative vision for this iconic and hugely successful franchise, and is hands down the right architect to join us as we reimagine the television and film worlds of this property," eOne Film President Nick Meyer and eOne Global Television President Michael Lombardo said in the joint statement. "Across our slate, we are looking forward to working with the most talented storytellers as we take on Hasbro's rich fan-favorite brands and build entertainment universes around them."

Production company eOne was purchased by Hasbro in 2019 and has, as this announcement makes clear, been making a greater effort to further develop their properties. There's a ton of nostalgia for the Power Rangers, whose first entry as Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, debuted in 1993 as something of a cult classic. (It's unclear whether these projects will connect with the 2017 Power Rangers movie.)

Xbox Series X: Best Solution For Storage Expansion (SSD, Expansion Card, Or Hard Drive)

Wed, 10/21/2020 - 07:00

The Xbox Series X's 1TB internal SSD is really fast, loading up some games in a matter of seconds--I tested this out in several games in my full console preview and got impressive results. But with 802GB actually free to use on the internal drive, you can fill it up quickly with the size of games today (and don't forget the Xbox Series S only comes with a 512GB drive). So, what are some good solutions to expand your storage on the new Xbox consoles and how do they perform in comparison?

I used three different drives for the purposes of my tests: the 1TB Seagate SSD expansion card, a Samsung T5 portable SSD (500GB), and a Western Digital My Passport external hard drive (4TB). This covers the different tiers of storage options available for the Xbox Series systems. To test and compare speeds, I used Final Fantasy XV and The Outer Worlds for transferring whole games and recording load times. You can check the results in the video and text below.

Table of Contents [hide]1TB Seagate Expansion Card

Let's start with the proprietary Seagate 1TB expansion card, built specifically for the Series X and Series S. This is the drive that plugs directly into the back of the console. You just insert it, and it's immediately ready to use.

What's New To Netflix In November 2020: Dawson's Creek And A Bunch Of Christmas Movies

Wed, 10/21/2020 - 06:34

Can you believe 2020 is almost over? It's been a wild year of not leaving your house and spending most of your time binging Netflix. As November rolls around, you'd probably be expecting plenty of new content revolving around Thanksgiving, right? So far, what's been revealed for Netflix's November list is a bit heavier on Christmas content. Hopefully, when the full list for November is dropped, we can get some movies about singing and dancing turkeys or something.

The most notable Christmas movie arrives at the end of the month on November 25. The Christmas Chronicles 2 takes place a couple years after the first movie where Kate (Darby Camp) and Teddy Pierce (Judah Lewis) saved Christmas. Now Santa (Kurt Russell) and Mrs. Claus (Goldie Hawn) need the kids' help again with another adventure. Check out the trailer below.

Also coming to Netflix in November is Dawson's Creek. While the classic Paula Cole song "I Don't Want To Wait" won't be accompanying the show in its move from Hulu to Netflix, 128 episodes featuring James Van Der Beek as Dawson Leery will be headed to the streaming service--and only one of those episodes features that signature cry.

Willow Sequel TV Show Is Happening For Disney+

Wed, 10/21/2020 - 06:10

The 1988 adventure Willow was George Lucas's next big fantasy movie after he'd wrapped up the Star Wars trilogy five years earlier. Although the film wasn't a big box office hit at the time, it has since developed a cult following, and there have been various rumors of a potential sequel over the years. It's now been confirmed that Disney+ is making Willow TV show.

As reported by Variety, the Willow series will be set many years after the film and will once again star Warwick Davis as Willow Ufgood, the film's heroic main character. Ron Howard, who directed the movie, will executive produce, while Crazy Rich Asians director Jon M. Chu will helm the pilot. The showrunners will be Jonathan Kasdan, who co-wrote Howard's Star Wars spin-off Solo, and Wendy Mericle, who was co-showrunner on The CW's Arrow. The show will start production next year.

In a statement, Chu said, "Growing up in the '80s, Willow has had a profound effect on me. The story of the bravest heroes in the least likely places allowed me, an Asian-American kid growing up in a Chinese restaurant looking to go to Hollywood, to believe in the power of our own will, determination and of course, inner magic. So the fact that I get to work with my heroes from Kathleen Kennedy to Ron Howard is bigger than a dream come-true. It's a bucket-list moment for me. Jon Kasdan and Wendy Mericle have added such groundbreaking new characters and delightful surprises to this timeless story that I can't wait for the world to come along on this epic journey with us."

WWE Hell In A Cell 2020: When Is It, Match Card, Predictions, And How To Watch

Wed, 10/21/2020 - 05:52

October marks the scariest month of the year, and that means WWE will be getting the most spooky with its PPVs. And what's the scariest PPV of all time? No, not Halloween Havoc or Great Balls of Fire! We're talking about Hell in a Cell, a PPV where a giant red chain-linked fence encapsulates the ring.

On Sunday, October 25, the Hell in a Cell enters the Thunderdome. So it will be a cell, inside a dome, inside the Amway Center in Orlando, Florida. This is dangerously close to WCW's Tower of Doom match. Anyway, Hell in a Cell will feature a few matches from inside the titular cell, and here are the start times across the globe.

Start time:
  • 5 PM PT
  • 7 PM CT
  • 8 PM ET
  • 12 AM GMT (October 26)
  • 11 AM AEDT (October 26)

Like most PPVs, there will be a Kickoff Show prior to the main card. However, you'll be able to watch that on YouTube and on WWE's Twitter page for free.

Fortnite Players Taking A Break From Fighting To Trick-Or-Treat

Wed, 10/21/2020 - 05:46

Fortnite players are ready for Halloween. A few risky players have gone trick-or-treating by ringing doorbells at random houses across the map, hoping they won't get shot at once the door opens.

My friend and I went trick or treating in Fortnite and this is how it turned out... from r/FortNiteBR

Two players rolled up to one house, built walls around them for protection, and then decorated their little enclosure with spider and spider web sprays in the clip above. They knocked on the door, emoted, and waited for the door to open. The player inside the house greeted the players with healing items.

"It's great knowing that there are still players who want to have fun instead of killing you on the spot," said Redditor ghosty300. Halloween has flooded the battle royale genre this week. Halloween decorations and limited time modes have popped up in Apex Legends, and Call of Duty: Warzone. It's rumored that a Fortnitemares update, that will bring special challenges and modes, will come to Fortnite on October 21.
