HBO Comes To Sling TV In Time For Game Of Thrones Premiere

Sling TV launched in mid-March on Xbox One, bringing with it a 30-day trial. If you’re still deciding whether or not to cut the cord, this latest news might help you make a choice.

The service has announced that HBO, which recently announced plans to become available without a cable subscription, is coming to Sling. While no specific release date has been announced, HBO will be added before the April 12 premiere of Game of Thrones.

The premium channel will cost users $15 per month. That includes one live channel and video on demand that Sling says is equivalent with what HBO offers on other platforms. If you’re accustomed to using the HBO Go app, you’ll still have access to the same programming, just through the Sling app.

about X hours ago from

Developer 11 bit’s emotional and challenging commentary on war, This War of Mine, grabbed our attention last year. Now, the team behind the title is giving back with DLC.

The War Child Charity DLC is being sold through April 3 in three denominations: $0.99, $9.99, and $19.99. All three price points include the same content, with increased purchase price going toward the charity effort.

To date, 350 Syrian children have been helped by funds raised from the War Child Charity DLC. Money raised has been used for psycho-social support due to trauma, safe space for the children, educational aid (school fees, livelihood support, teacher training, and more).

The Talos Principle Is Seriously Getting A Serious Sam Voice Pack

Croteam made its name with the over-the-top, run-and-gun shooter, Serious Sam. The Talos Principle, released near the end of 2014, shows the studio’s versatility with challenging puzzles and clever storytelling.

But only the fool forgets where he or she came from. The Talos Principle comes full circle with the Serious Sam voice pack. You can already switch up the ethereal Elohim’s voice among a few options. Now you can give the omnipresent deity Sam’s gravelly pipes.

The DLC will be free on Steam until April 7, after which time it will be available for $2.99. And if you haven’t yet purchased The Talos Principle, you can do so at a 50 percent discount now through April 6. For more on the title, you can check out our review.

Activision Press Badge Hints At Something Musical

about X hours ago from

When the dogs started barking this morning, I just assumed it was someone walking in front of the house. It turns out it was FedEx dropping off a mysterious package.

Inside the padded envelope was one thing: a press badge. There was no note, but the shipping label indicated that it had come from Activision.

I looked up all of the names printed on it (you can click to enlarge the top image), but came up with nothing. While they seem to be music groups, they also seem to be entirely fictional.

The Exclusive Collectibles Coming To Star Wars Celebration

Star Wars Celebration kicks off in a couple of weeks in Anaheim, CA, and we'll be in attendance to get our first look at DICE's Star Wars: Battlefront, and hopefully new footage from J.J. Abrams' Star Wars: The Force Awakens. The show, which is expected to welcome over 50,000 Star Wars fans this year, is also a great place for collectors to empty their pocket books. Most toy and collectible manufacturers release exclusive items that can only be purchased for a limited time, usually at the show or online during the show days.

Over the next couple of weeks, we're rounding up all of the exclusive collectible announcements for the show. Here's what has been announced so far:

Kotobukiya's R3-A2 & K-3POKotobukiya is releasing an ARTFX two-pack featuring R3-A2 & K-3PO. No pricing details have been given yet, but this item will be extremely limited and is only being produced once. Pre-orders for non-show attendees go on sale tomorrow 10 a.m. PT on Kotobukiya's website.

New Resident Evil Revelations 2 Update Enables Online Raid Mode

Resident Evil Revelations 2's Raid mode was a standout for the title, and now you can tackle the mode's missions with an online friend thanks to a free new update.

The update is now available for all versions of the game (PS4, PS3, Xbox 360, and PC) except Xbox One. Capcom says the update for that platform is "taking a little more time to complete."

Apart from enabling co-op online raids, the update makes the Code Red stages in Raid mode harder, and enables multiple match-finding functions for online raids.

Bloodborne Update 1.02 Fixes Game Progression Bug

Bloodborne Update 1.02 Fixes Game Progression Bug

Last week, we reported that Bloodborne had a nasty bug obstructing game progression. While it only occurred in certain circumstances, if triggered by specific actions, failure was guaranteed. A new patch fixes the problem.

Update 1.02 is now available (and it may have already been downloaded to your console). According to the patch notes, players will now be able to acquire the key that went missing after using a bell in the Forbidden Woods. The patch also fixes the problem for those already affected by the bug.

Additional bug fixes are included in the patch, but not specified in the notes. We’re still waiting (and hoping) for something that improves the load times following death. Given that you’re likely to perish often, those waits can be more troublesome than losing blood echoes.
