Production on The CW's "Crisis on Infinite Earths" crossover appears to be winding down, and fans are already preparing for the heartbreaking and emotional moments that that will entail. With Arrow - the show that essentially started the network's modern DC universe - coming to an end this year, filming on the crossover appears to be making way for some pretty bittersweet moments. On Thursday, Legends of Tomorrow star Caity Lotz took to Instagram to share a behind-the-scenes photo of herself and Arrow star Stephen Amell, which she says is from what "might have been the last scene" the two of them did together. … [Read more...] about Crisis on Infinite Earths: Caity Lotz Shares Bittersweet BTS Photo With Stephen Amell

After what seems like a long silence, DICE and Electronic Arts have released a new Battlefield: Bad Company trailer, the single-player-based, ultra-destructive Battlefield on consoles.It's looking damn good. As you can see below in this Swedish-filled dev trailer, there's a massive, sandbox world lined up for the shooter and everything explodes and falls apart nicely, which seems to be the big 'hook' for the new Battlefield. … [Read more...] about Is Battlefield: Bad Company a Crysis-beater?
This mission is the Company’s final run at the elusive mercenary gold they’ve been chasing. As the mission opens, you and your men first must secure a small village. We were impressed by how well the map served different styles of play. A sniper can sit on a nearby hill picking off enemies from afar. A commando can swim through a small lagoon and flank the defenders for a surprise attack. A heavy gunner or demolitions guy can opt to walk in the front door and light the place up.

We then swapped the tank for a jeep and advanced to the next set of fortifications. … [Read more...] about Battlefield: Bad Company – updated hands-on
Mendoza's beat begins and I'm in a patrol car with my partner, detective Khai Minh Dao. While she drives I gawp out of the window at the fascinating street madness like a wide-eyed baby blue blood. The woman carrying groceries to her door and casually complaining about her man's restraining order; the cop shoving a hoodie against his car with a little too much relish. Nick's no silent protagonist. Spying a lady clearly struggling to plant the lid on her dustbin, he asks what's the matter. "The lid don't fit," she grunts. "Well, good luck with that, ma'am," Nick replies, tone dripping with mock concern. Nick's a dick when he needs to be. Fake smiles of porch drunks, window-washing homeless, and backyard weightlifters darkly asking for a spot conceal murderous intent - the minute your back is turned that happy hobo slings a big "F*** you!" in your direction. This is a hostile world in which your presence reverberates like a migraine. … [Read more...] about Battlefield Hardline – we spend 4 hours with the gloriously unpredictable story
The measure of households that "chose to watch" the show is a little arbitrary: Netflix defines it as viewing for at least two minutes, "long enough to indicate the choice was intentional," and not just a brief halt on the channel surfing safari to go get more Fritos. That leaves open the possibility of viewers who watched for ten minutes, decided they hated it, and moved on to NCIS: Los Angeles, but the line has to be drawn somewhere and I guess the point of intent is as good a place as any. … [Read more...] about The Witcher may be Netflix’s biggest series debut ever
