about X hours ago from

If you own a PlayStation console and enjoy online multiplayer games, you're probably well-familiar with PS Plus, PlayStation's annual membership subscription that grants access to online multiplayer in games like Overwatch, Monster Hunter World, or Diablo III. While PS Plus membership is usually priced at $60 per year, it's cheaper than ever for a limited amount of time. From now until March 26, you can sign up for (or re-purchase) PS Plus for only $45 (25% off).

The PlayStation Store is offering this deal as part of its Great Indoors Sale this month, which also features games up to 75% off with PS Plus. So once you snag a membership, you can pick up a bunch of games for even cheaper.

If you're already a PS Plus member, you're also allowed to stack subscriptions, so you can still take advantage of the discount and save money in the long-term. Even if PlayStation launches a new console in the next few years (as it's rumored to), your PS Plus subscriptions will likely be valid on that platform.

Left Alive Review - No Will To Survive

Left Alive Review - No Will To Survive

You awaken in a city under enemy occupation after neighbouring forces swept in and brutally laid waste to soldiers and civilians alike. You’re separated from your squad, your Wanzer mech heavily damaged and unable to operate, with nothing but the local army’s omnipotent AI, Koshka, to help guide you to safety. Left Alive’s opening salvo shows its certain potential, but while the premise pulls you in, the take away once it’s all over is one of resounding disappointment. Left Alive is an astoundingly infuriating grind that lacks in almost every area, making a wholly unrewarding experience.

Set in the same universe as the long-neglected Front Mission series, you alternate between three main characters--a rookie Wanzer pilot, a former military veteran turned beat cop, and a ghosted merc who’s been presumed dead for two years. Each character is on a different path to try and escape the city that’s overrun with enemy mechs and soldiers. Their paths will intertwine over the course of the game’s 14 missions allowing for some occasionally fun interplay between the protagonists, but that’s about as interesting as their story gets. Moments of both political and personal intrigue go for knockout blows with almost no set up, leaving them feeling flat and impactless, and the story never really gets back on its feet.

Where Is Xur? Destiny 2 Location And Exotic Weapons Guide (March 15-19)

Xur has returned to Destiny 2 once again, and for the second time in as many weeks, the weekend Exotic vendor has new things to offer. Not only does he have another Forsaken Exotic for Warlocks looking to complete their collections, but he's offering the first Invitation of the Nine, a special bounty that gives new information about Xur's enigmatic masters.

You'll find Xur on Titan this week, hanging out in a small shed on The Rig. Head north from the spawn point and check in a small building toward the edge of the platform. There you can purchase Crimson, a phenomenal Exotic hand cannon that fires a burst of three shots at a time. Kills with Crimson heal you, and precision kills refill the magazine, making it a pretty devastating weapon, especially in Crucible. Crimson is a great hand cannon to take with you on the lengthy Crucible grind if you're working on the quest to get the new Exotic hand cannon Thorn--check out our guide for some handy tips, including where to find the start of the Thorn quest.

Apex Legends Battle Pass: Everything We Know

Respawn surprise-launched Apex Legends, which quickly rocketed to higher player counts than many competitors in the battle royale genre. From the start, though, the studio acknowledged it was planning to produce regular seasons with an optional battle pass, and now that launch is about to arrive. The studio has released some details, and accidentally leaked others, giving us an altogether pretty clear idea of what to expect.

In Respawn's year-one roadmap for the battle passes, it stated that all four of this year's battle passes will include new weapons and loot like exclusive cosmetics, and at least one new Legend character. Each battle pass is said to include about 100 rewards. Several seasonal items will be unlockable through the course of regular play, while others will be exclusive to battle pass holders. Battle passes will also include random Apex Packs, giving you an assortment of random skins and other items to earn.

Respawn has not formally outlined its pricing plan for the Apex Legends battle pass. Its year-one roadmap was the most detail the studio has given on its assorted battle passes coming through 2019, and it didn't mention price anywhere in the announcement.

What's Coming To Amazon Prime Video For April 2019 (US)

about X hours ago from

Have you burned through all of Amazon Prime Video's movies and TV shows? If so, tell me your secret. Anyway, April is right around the corner, and that means there will be tons of new content to binge. If you have Hulu, the list for April is out as well.

On April 1, Amazon is dropping most of its offerings for the month. There are plenty of movies of note, including all three Blade movies, but you might want to skip Blade: Trinity. It's bad, but the first one still holds up. The Marvel character help kick off the new renaissance of superhero movies, and the movie features Wesley Snipes as a vampire hunter, doing what he does best.

Speaking of vampires (what a transition!), also hitting the service on April Fool's Day is the Tom Cruise and Brad Pitt classic Interview With The Vampire. The movie is about a journalist, who interviews a vampire, who tells his story of life, love, and betrayal. If that's too much for you, then you could also watch Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: Secret of the Ooze, which features wrestling superstar Kevin Nash as Super Shredder.

Game Of Thrones Season 8: Full Episode Running Times Revealed

about X hours ago from

The specific running times of individual episodes is rarely discussed in the build-up to a new season of a TV show--but most shows aren't Game of Thrones. For more than a year there has been much speculation about how long each of the six episodes of the show's eighth and final season will be. HBO has now revealed these running times ahead of the season's April 14 premiere.

The length of the first two episodes was confirmed last week, and both clocked in at just under an hour. However, as expected, the next four run much longer. All of them are around the 80 minute mark, which supports HBO boss Richard Plepler's description of the final season as like "watching a movie". The estimated runnings times are as follows:

The full trailer for Game of Thrones Season 8 was released last week. It focuses on setting up the the epic battle against the Night King and his army of the dead at Winterfell--for more insight, check out GameSpot's trailer breakdown.
