By: Ben Gourlay | More News: Contests & Giveaways | Posted: Jun 13, 2017 11:56 pm

To celebrate this week's release of the second season of 'Daredevil' on Blu-ray and DVD, we have five Blu-rays to give away thanks to our friends at Walt Disney Home Entertainment.




The razor-thin line between redemption and retribution explodes with a vengeance in Marvel's Daredevil: The Complete Second Season. With Wilson Fisk behind bars, Matt thinks his efforts to bring order to Hell's Kitchen are succeeding-until chaos reignites with two new arrivals: Frank Castle (a.k.a. The Punisher), an anguished ex-soldier determined to visit bloody, irrevocable "justice" upon his adversaries, and Matt's volatile old flame Elektra Natchios. Meanwhile, a lethal, relentless source of ancient evil continues to amass power. Now, as both the stakes and the body count rise, Matt faces a life-altering choice that forces him to confront what it truly means to be a hero.

Samsung Galaxy Note8 could be unveiled in August

By: Lana Jelic | More News: Mobile Devices, Tablets & Phones | Posted: Jun 13, 2017 11:24 pm

Although it was rumored that Samsung might unveil the Galaxy Note8 in September, possibly at IFA, the latest report claims otherwise.




According to a source from South Korea, the company wants to unveil the Note8 in August, the same as they did with the Note7 last year.


The timing makes sense because Apple should launch the new iPhone in September, and this would give Samsung a slight advantage.

Red Dead Redemption 2 skips E3 2017

By: Derek Strickland | More News: Gaming | Posted: Jun 13, 2017 10:21 pm

E3 2017 - Rockstar Games' massively anticipated Western skips E3 -- should we be worried, or is this all part of the plan?




It's been seven months since Rockstar revealed Red Dead Redemption 2 with a cinematic trailer, and the game was noticeably absent at E3 2017. We expected to see a new bit of Red Dead Redemption 2 footage at E3, likely at Sony's presser since PS4 has exclusive content hinting Sony secured a marketing deal.


Since Red Dead Redemption 2's delay announcement Rockstar hasn't said a peep about the game. Now we know that Rockstar typically plays by their own rules and releases content when they want, but with Microsoft's new Xbox One X and Sony's PlayStation 4 Pro pushing 4K throughout 2017, we expected to see some sort of teasers that harness this new tech shown off at E3 proper. But Rockstar's Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube feeds are all focused on GTA Online.

By: Derek Strickland | More News: Virtual & Augmented Reality | Posted: Jun 13, 2017 8:14 pm

E3 2017 - Bethesda is keen on making their mark on virtual reality by bringing their biggest open-world RPGs into VR.



For the first time ever, players will be able to step into Skyrim's frosty wilderness in an immersive new way. Bethesda Softworks has announced Skyrim VR will release exclusively for Sony's PlayStation VR headset this year. Skyrim VR is a full adaptation of 2011's celebrated RPG, and like its cousin Fallout 4 VR that's coming to HTC Vive this year, the game features the full Skyrim experience with 200+ hours of exploration, quests, weapons and armor, and everything else the original game offered.


Skyrim VR also includes three DLC packs--Dragonborn, Hearthfire and Dawnguard--and may be compatible with premium Creation Club monetized DLC-like mods, but Bethesda hasn't said anything on that front.

God of War coming Early 2018

E3 2017 - Sony Santa Monica's ambitious new God of War game won't release this year, Sony Interactive Entertainment today confirmed.



As Waypoint's Patrick Klepek said days before E3 started, Sony's E3 presser showcased games we won't be playing until next year. Take Sony Santa Monica's new Norse-themed God of War game, for instance. Announced at E3 2016 and showcased at E3 2017, the game doesn't even have an official release date yet and Sony has given it an "early 2018" release window on PS4.


The new God of War title is a re-imagining of the series set in a unique fantasy backdrop where Norse mythology comes alive with creatures like the World Serpent Jörmungandr and the fearsome dragon Níðhöggr. Kratos is now a father who makes a long trek through this interesting world, teaching his son Atreus important lessons about survival and being a warrior. Sony showcased a gameplay trailer during their E3 showcase to give us a taste of the visceral combat, and although the game certainly has some Skyrim fantasy elements, it's still God of War deep down inside.
