Season of Storms book banner Witcher series

Season of Storms
“The Witcher” Series
Hardcover | Paperback | Kindle | Audiobook
By Andrzej Sapkowski (Author), David A. French (Translator)
Publisher: Orbit Books
Paperback Release date: May 22, 2018

Games, book, comics, film, television. This franchise has it all! The current release is Season of Storms, is apparently the sixth “Witcher” book but eighth in the overall series from author Andrzej Sapkowski.

Now, having said that, I was not in any way deterred from reading this just because I had failed to read any of the previous books. Written and translated in such a way as to make it a perfectly acceptable stand alone novel, I enjoyed it from cover to cover.

Detroit: Become Human

The long-awaited next game from developer Quantic Dream (Heavy Rain, Beyond: Two Souls), titled Detroit: Become Human, finally arrives this week. To mark the occasion, a launch trailer for the game has now been released.

Detroit is set in a not so distant future where androids are so advanced you might think they’re human if not for small indicators. These androids are subservient to humans; tools and toys to command however their owners choose. But some of them are becoming sentient, and they’re tired of being treated like insignificant objects.

You can read much more about the game and watch the launch trailer below.

Nickelodeon's Double Dare

A month ago we found out that the popular ’80s and early ’90s game show Double Dare was being revived by Nickelodeon. The only question we didn’t have an answer to, was whether or not Marc Summers was going to return as host.

Now Nickelodeon has announced a return date for the show, and that Summers will indeed be involved. But there’s a catch. Summers will not be returning as host, instead taking on a commentary role for the game’s challenges. Liza Koshy steps into the role of host for this new version of Double Dare.

Avengers: Infinity War review image

The Avengers and the Guardians of the Galaxy came together, for the first time ever, in Avengers: Infinity War.

And it wouldn’t be much of a Guardians introduction if there wasn’t any classic pop culture music in it. So when we first meet them in Infinity War, they are answering a distress signal while jamming out to The Spinners’ “Rubberband Man.” But it is clear that there are more songs left on that playlist. Now Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn has revealed four other songs that were being considered for that one sequence. Check out his selection below.

Keanu Reeves stars as 'John Wick' in JOHN WICK: CHAPTER 2.

When we last left John Wick (Keanu Reeves) in John Wick: Chapter 2, he was using whatever time Winston (Ian McShane) gave him to outrun the assassins that were after the bounty on his head. It’s clear that we will see a new eclectic mix of killers this time around. Now with John Wick: Chapter 3 currently in production, we are getting an early look at who some of those fun assassins may be.

Halle Berry, Anjelica Huston, Jason Mantzoukas, Asia Kate Dillon, and Mark Dacascos are now joining the cast. And to make sure the threat is real, John Wick will also have to face the likes of Yayan Ruhian and Cecep Arif Rahman (of The Raid) and more. More on the story below.
