WASHINGTON, March 13 (Reuters) - President Donald Trump's former campaign chairman Paul Manafort was sentenced on Wednesday to about 3-1/2 more years in prison for charges arising from Special Counsel Robert Mueller's probe into Russia's role in the 2016 U.S. election, with the judge giving him a stern lecture about his lies and criminal behavior.The sentence of 73 months in prison imposed by U.S. District Judge Amy Berman Jackson in Washington came six days after a different judge gave Manafort a lenient term of 47 months - just under four years - in prison in a separate case in Virginia, with credit for nine months he already has spent behind bars.Jackson said 30 months of her sentence will run at the same time as the sentence in the Virginia case.

San Diego Comic-Con 2018 is nearly upon us, and the oncoming onslaught of debuts, reveals, and media morsels can feel almost as overwhelming as being on the convention floor itself. While last year’s convention schedule was jam-packed (Infinity War! Black Panther! Westworld!), SDCC 2018’s programming slate feels considerably more fan-friendly. With no major Marvel Studios panel scheduled this year (and thus no new Captain Marvel or Avengers 4 information), no giant Game of Thrones surprises planned, and a number of obvious suspects sitting out the proceedings, SDCC 2018 feels a bit lighter than usual. Which isn’t to say that this year’s convention won’t be equal parts exhilaration and exhaustion — we still have four days full of announcements and trailers that’ll have people talking. Polygon will be covering all things Comic-Con over the next four days, but to keep up with everything, here are our picks for panels most likely to produce the … [Read more...] about Every 2018 San Diego Comic-Con panel you want to watch out for

I may be addicted to this kind of nonsense and I want to finish this article so I can get to the serious business of playing this game. If you played Q.U.B.E. then you probably have some expectations set for what kind of brain-scratching world altering goodness that a sequel can bring. But the entire first person puzzle world has been churning out such exceptionally high bar work in the last few years, I’m hoping that Q.U.B.E. 2 won’t just rise to meet the challenge, but might be the new high-water mark. Am I done writing, yet? No. Okay here’s more. Q.U.B.E. 2 is the sequel to the hit first-person puzzle game Q.U.B.E. You are Amelia Cross, a stranded archaeologist who has awoken among the ruins of an ancient alien landscape. With the distant help of another survivor you must manipulate the structure of this mysterious world and find a way back home. Waking up wearing a strange suit with attached gloves, you have no prior knowledge on how you came to be in this … [Read more...] about Q.U.B.E. 2 looks like a G.O.O.D. 1
