The World of Warcraft movie has been in development for a while now, but yet another speed bump has been hit, with Legendary Pictures and Universal Pictures announcing the WoW movie has been delayed until March 11, 2016.
The World of Warcraft movie originally had a release date of December 18, 2015, so it's not too much of a delay. No reason was given for the delay, but it has been seven years in the making, and around five years since a director jumped onto the project. Delays are never usually a good sign, so let's hope the WoW movie is still impressive when it finally comes out.

The next-generation consoles are here as well as a ton of new gaming news. This week we decided to shoot a series of podcast since there was just too much news to cover. Our first podcast of the week is dedicated entirely to gaming, and we cover everything from Star Citizen, to the next-gen consoles, and even talk Steam Machines. This is one of the last podcast that will be marked as beta editions, so if there is anything you think we could do better, please let us know by leaving a comment.
Over the last year, I have been reporting on Comet ISON, and its impending extremely close encounter with the sun. Yesterday, while many of us were sitting down to dinner tables, and enjoying a nice meal with friends and family, ISON skirted through the very upper region of the sun.
ISON reached perihelion, its closest point to the sun, around 1:30pm EDT yesterday afternoon. Initial reports were that the icy traveler had succumbed to the intense heat and gravity that is present just 750,000 miles from the sun. In fact, all of the images coming out of NASA's SOHO observatory indicated that ISON took a sharp turn into the sun just before perihelion and vaporized.
Fortunately this morning new data has been released that shows that ISON's nucleus or partial chunk of its nucleus managed to survive. In the video above, you can see what appears to be a jet of debris getting flung away from the Sun just a few degrees above the comets entry point. It is still unclear whether or not any of this debris will become visible to the naked eye from earths surface in the next few weeks, but all is not lost. The data that ISON has provided the scientific community is simply massive and will allow scientist to study not only comets, but the suns magnetosphere for decades to come.
Nick Starr, a network engineer based in Seattle, was enjoying a nice meal in a 24-hour diner in Seattle's Capital Hill neighborhood, when he was asked to remove his Google Glass headset.
Starr demanded to see a written policy that Glass was banned in the diner, but the server held her ground and demanded he remove it. Starr took to Facebook, saying "I would love an explanation, apology, clarification, and if the staff member was in the wrong and lost the owner money last night and also future income as well, that this income be deducted from her pay or her termination."
Starr had stumbled into Lost Lake Cafe, with the owner of the diner being very anti-Glass. Lost Lake's owner, David Meinert, has been in the news before with his anti-Glass stance, banning the wearable device from another place he owns: Seattle's 5 Point Cafe. Meinert said that he had recently told his staff at Lost Lake to ask anyone wearing Glass to remove it.
Our Tweakipedia section has a new post.
Today, we thought we would bring to you something new, something fresh. How does the Star Citizen Hangar Module being tested at 7860x1440 sound? Sure, it's still an alpha and 18 months away, but that doesn't stop us from testing out two AMD Radeon HD 7970 GPUs in CrossFire at 7860x1440!

You might not have heard of Gigaset, but you have most likely heard of NVIDIA's Tegra 4 SoC, which is what Gigaset has included in one of its new tablets.
The Germany-based company has just launched two new slates, the first is an 8-inch model, the QV830. The second, is the QV1030, which is a 10-inch tablet. Both of the slates run stock Android 4.2, which is a nice change, but each slate has very different specifications.
The bigger QV1030 features NVIDIA's high-end Tegra 4 SoC, which is a quad-core part clocked at 1.8GHz. The 10-inch display includes a 2560x1600 resolution, 16GB of internal flash storage is included, which is expandable, an 8-megapixel camera is found on the back, and a 1.2-megapixel up front.
Sony has been going through teething issues with its global roll out of the PlayStation 4, so much so that the PlayStation Network is seeing troubles with its users.
The company doesn't want to extend these issues into every new territory that the PS4 launches in, so it will be disabling a few features in the Australian, European and New Zealand launches of its next-gen console. The sections closed off, for now, are the friend activity in both What's New and content info sections.
Sony will obviously re-activate these features in the coming weeks, but just for now, they are disabled in some countries.
It looks like there's problems on the Xbox One version of Battlefield 4, where the Second Assault DLC is not available for Xbox One owners who have coughed up the dough for Battlefield Premium.
Battlefield 4: Second Assault includes four maps from Battlefield 3, and the biggest issue here is that the DLC is an Xbox One exclusive for two weeks to those who have Premium access. But, the problem is, that the pack is listing as "null data" when logging on to the in-game Premium store. An EA spokesperson has said that Microsoft is looking into the matter.
EA_Rick, said: "I know some of you have said already that it is being looked into, I wanted to just confirm that for you so you guys have a blue [staff] post to refer to. Right now all I can say is that we are aware of this issue and are currently investigating this with Microsoft. Once we have some more details I'll be sure to let you know."
It looks like LG could be a bit behind when it comes to providing Android 4.4 KitKat for its awesome G2 smartphone, in Canada at least. The news is coming from MobileSyrup, who has been told by an LG Canada rep that Canadian G2s will receive the KitKat update around "late Q1" 2014.
The Android 4.4 update will hit all Canadian carriers, which is nice, but this is a long time to wait for the update. Even longer, considering LG made the Nexus 5, which is what the new OS debuted on. Let's hope it hits devices faster, and LG, if you're reading this, don't make people wait this long, please.
