Superman's Grandfather Takes Center Stage In The Trailer For Krypton

SyFy has a new series based in the Superman universe in the works, and today a first look at the show appeared online.

The show, called Krypton, follows Seg-El (father or Jor-El, who is the father of Kal-El, A.K.A. Clark Kent, A.K.A. Superman), as he presumably, tries to stop the events that lead to the planet's destruction right after Kal-El is born. Or maybe he makes it all happen. It's too early to tell. The show has a real Game of Thrones-vibe to it, which is a compliment.

Reader Discussion: Do You Mind Playing Big Games Back To Back?

Reader Discussion: Do You Mind Playing Big Games Back To Back?

In the last few weeks we have seen the release of a number of huge games all at once. Are you playing them in succession? Or taking breaks?

Horizon: Zero Dawn, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Mass Effect: Andromeda, and Persona 5 are all great, each requires substantial time to play, and all came out around the same time. Joe Juba heroically reviewed Nier: Automata (another good, but long game), Mass Effect: Andromeda, and Persona 5 all in a row, so when it came time to dive into The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, he decided he needed a break with a shorter game first, and started playing Night in the Woods. It makes perfect sense to me, but does it make sense to you?

Would you rather always be playing the biggest and the best? Or do you relish the occasional break? Let us know in the comments.

Persona 5's Full Soundtrack Is Now Available On iTunes

The collector's edition of Persona 5 included a sampler soundtrack of the game, but now you can grab the full, 110 track album from iTunes.

You can head here for the download, which is $29.99 – pricey for a soundtrack. It's worth noting however, that to buy each track separately would cost $141.90, so make sure you consider that before hitting the purchase button 110 times.

We liked Persona 5 a lot with Joe Juba specifically writing, "A fantastic soundtrack from composer Shoji Meguro is packed with music that will get stuck in your head," of the game's sound. You can find our review here.

The latest expansion brings the Tzenkethi storyline to the game, which is reflected in the new content. An episode known as 'Of Signs and Portents' has players team up with Lukari and Klingon forces against the Tzenkethi, while the new Lukari Restoration Initiative reputation earns players gear that protects against Tzenkethi technology. Other additions include two space queues and a space battlezone, both related to the war against the Tzenkethi.

Reservoir Dogs: Bloody Days Releases Next Month

A new game based on the movie Reservoir Dogs is coming out in May. Weird, right? What's even weirder is that it actually looks kind of awesome, like Hotline Miami with a unique time-rewind mechanic.

Reservoir Dogs: Bloody Days takes the bank robbery plot of the classic Quentin Tarantino film and turns it into a top-down shooter, a la Hotline Miami, but with stylized 3D graphics in the vein of Team Fortress 2. Now, the curiously intriguing movie tie-in has a release date, revealed in a new cinematic trailer:
