THQ Nordic to revive old-school Nickelodeon games

By: Derek Strickland | More News: Gaming | Posted: 1 hour, 43 mins ago

Did you grow up with Ren and Stimpy or Rocko's Modern Life games as a kid? Or maybe Avatar: The Last Airbender titles? Those games and more are about to make a comeback.




Today THQ Nordic and Nickelodeon announced that a number of old-school gaming classics from the SNES era and beyond will be resurrected, likely in original or possibly remastered form.


"THQ Nordic and Nickelodeon today announced the global revival of several game titles connected with Nickelodeon properties," reads a press release announcement. Games based in series like Rocko's Modern Life, Ren and Stimpy, Rugrats, Avatar, Danny Phantom, and Invader Zim were specifically mentioned, although official details are still light. It's highly likely the games will be re-released in a nostalgic bundle for play on current-gen systems, and I'm hoping the theoretical pack comes to the Nintendo Switch.

WhatsApp co-founder tells the world to delete Facebook

By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: Social Networking | Posted: 6 hours, 39 mins ago

Facebook are in some deep doo doo right now, with the full skinny on that in my article about the social networking giant losing $50 billion over the Cambridge Analytica scandal.



Now we have WhatsApp co-founder Brian Acton taking to Twitter of all social networking platforms tweeting: "It's time. #deletefacebook". Both Acton and WhatsApp have declined to comment reports The Verge, and remember... Facebook acquired WhatsApp in 2014 for a huge $16 billion. Acton is now worth $6.5 billion and in the middle of a $50 billion stock drop for Facebook, its CEO and COO have been reportedly missing from a recent staff meet to discuss the CA scandal.


Acton isn't the first ex-Facebook executive to talk dirt on the social networking giant, with head of growth for Facebook Chamath Palihapitiya admitting "we have created tools that are ripping apart the social fabric of how society works." Crazy things are happening for FB right now, and I don't see how they're going to get out of this one short of a larger scandal breaking out and fanning these flames.

The original goal was only $450,000 but that was breached only within just a few days of the Kickstarter going live, currently as i'm typing this the upcoming RTS is pushing close to $1m, sitting at precisely $917,315.


It should be noted that the game still has 24 days to go which could suggest that the immense popularlity could surpass the entire stretch goal chart that the developers have laid out for the game. If you are interested in viewing the Kickstarter for Iron Harvest, the link can be found here.

Brigitte Lindholm shield bashes into Overwatch, now live

By: Jak Connor | More News: Gaming | Posted: 12 hours, 6 mins ago

Hero 27 was first believed to be jetpack cat, but before the release of the new hero, confirmation surfaced that it was in-fact Torbjorns daughter Brigitte Lindholm.



On the Overwatch YouTube channel, a 'introduction' video has been released by Blizzard showing off how Brigitte is going to fit into the current roster.


It appears that Brigitte perhaps could be struggling with some father figure issues, this conclusion was derived from the following reasons: Has a father with an unhealthy obsession with machines and it is implied that he never paid attention to her, has Reinhardt as a role model since she was a little girl, mentions Reinhardt around 3 times in a minute and not Torbjorn once, in-game counter to Torbjorn and loves cats. From these reasons my guess would be that Reinhardt is Brigittes actual father figure even though he is of no relation.

Facebook stock drops $50 billion in two days, biggest ever

By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: Social Networking | Posted: 14 hours, 47 mins ago

Facebook is getting hammered from all directions right now, and right off the news that Cambridge Analytica has been using Facebook data to influence elections around the world, Facebook stock has dipped by a huge $50 billion in just two days.




Cambridge Analytica had data on some 50 million Facebook users and since the news emerged, the social networking giant has experienced its largest two-day stock price decliner, ever. Facebook stock was steady at $185 before the CA news broke, dipping down to $168 at the time of writing, wiping away $50 billion. 129 million shares of Facebook shares were circulated in these two days, which is massive.


There has been a steady ramp up to this news, with Facebook CEO and founder Mark Zuckerberg making an announcement of yet more changes to Facebook's News Feed. Zuckerberg announced that the changes toi the News Feed would turn more people away from advertisement and more with connecting people together again. The algorithm change was huge, affecting everyone... including TweakTown.

The Matrix launches on 4K Blu-ray on May 22

By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: HT & Movies | Posted: 16 hours, 27 mins ago

I still remember walking out of the cinema after watching The Matrix and just thinking 'what the **** did I just watch?!' and then over the years truly appreciating the film.




Warner Bros. is re-releasing The Matrix in 4K, offering it in a 4K Ultra HD / Blu-ray / digital combo for $41.99, available on May 22. The company achieved the 4K remaster by using the original 35mm film rolls that The Matrix was filmed on, so the quality should be much better than the 1080p digital release.


Bill Pope, who was the original director of photography on The Matrix, has reportedly overseen the entire project.
