Legendary Entertainment Signs Will Ferrell For eSports Movie

The same film studio that brought Inception and the Warcraft movie to life has set its sights on the world of eSports. Will Ferrell, best known for his roles on SNL and Anchorman, will be the main character of this untitled movie.

The script was written by the same writers for Spongebob Squarepants 3, with Will Ferrell taking on a similar character as his one in Talladega Nights. Evil Geniuses and Fnactic also seem to be in talks to appear in the film.

There is no current release date for the film.

Holiday Event Coming Next Week To Overwatch

Holiday Event Coming Next Week To Overwatch

Blizzard has invited players through Twitter to a seemingly winter-themed event slated to begin on December 13 in Overwatch. Through Blizzard's past holiday events and the snow-covered King's Row map in the tweet, this likely points to a winter holiday (and probably New Year's themed) event for Overwatch.

Although Blizzard has not confirmed anything, dataminers have dug up the leaked holiday theme music and what characters will likely get holiday-themed skins, emotes, and highlight intros (which have been accurate in the past).

It is also likely that this update will coincide with the reworked Symmetra from the Public Test Region, which we liked quite a bit.

Pokémon Walking Animations Found In Sun/Moon

Dataminers have unearthed an obscene amount of unused animations in the latest Pokémon games. Low-poly walking animations for all 802 monsters have been found in the game's data, leading to some speculation as to what they were for.

Currently the prevailing theories are that the content was cut at the last minute or that it was testing for the rumored Pokémon Stars. We'll keep you updated if any more information comes in.

Learn How To Survive A Zombie Apocalypse – For Real – In Dead Rising 4 Tips Video

Dead Rising 4 is out today, bringing the zombie-filled action back to where it all began in Willamette, Colorado. Frank West has done this all before, so taking on hordes of reanimated corpses is old hat for him. The rest of us could probably stand for some kind of refresher course, which is where Major Nelson's new video guide comes in.

In the video, zombie expert Cameron Carlson from the Zombie Research Society walks Larry Hryb through what he needs to keep an eye out for during the zombie apocalypse. If you're looking for some good general survival tips on where to find food, what can be used to start fires, and how to make a swinging weapon from an office chair, this the the video for you. There's also plenty of in-game footage from Dead Rising 4 to further illustrate the concepts that are being discussed in the live-live action video.
