The Walking Dead's Daryl Dixon Actor On His Character In S7 --

AMC's The Walking Dead returns next month for the second half of Season 7. Now, Daryl Dixon actor Norman Reedus has shared some insight into what viewers can expect from his character.

In short, he's mad and on a warpath. "He wants revenge," Reedus told Entertainment Weekly, referencing what happened to his character in the first half of Season 7. "He's ready to fight. When he goes back in that last episode and hands Rick back his stuff, it was like, 'Let's go! Let's go beat this guy up. Let's go take what's ours and fight this monster.' So, you know, he's in kill mode."

Reedus added that his character took Negan's violent actions in the Season 7 premiere personally. "Now he's ready to get revenge," Reedus said about Dixon. "He's ready to go kill everybody."

Call of Duty Was the Top-Selling Console Franchise, Again, in 2016

With 2016 concluded, we're beginning to get details on sales data for the full year. Following new NPD and ESA reports, Activision has now proclaimed that Call of Duty was the top-grossing console franchise in the world last year.

Specifically, Activision described Call of Duty as the "top-selling console video game franchise globally for 2016 based on revenue." It notes this is the eighth year in a row that's been the case in the US, and the seventh time in the last eight years that it's been true worldwide.

It's worth pointing out the specificity of its language: This definition doesn't have it competing with super-successful PC or mobile games, and it's talking in terms of revenue. That leaves the door open for another series to have come out on top in terms of unit sales.

Epic Games CEO Getting Lifetime Achievement Award

Game Developers Conference organizers announced today that Epic Games founder and CEO Tim Sweeney will receive a Lifetime Achievement award at its upcoming awards show.

An industry veteran, Sweeney is perhaps best known for his work on the Unreal Engine and the creation of the game ZZT. As CEO of Epic Games, he oversaw Gears of War before the studio sold it to Microsoft. The Unreal game series was one of Epic's early hits. Sweeney is also a philanthropist, recently donating $15 million for wildlife conversation efforts in his home state of North Carolina, which is where Epic Games is based.

Sweeney founded Epic MegaGames in 1991, with ZZT being its first release. The studio later changed names and became simply Epic Games. The Unreal Engine is one of the most widely used in all of gaming; some franchises that leverage it include BioShock, Assassin's Creed, and Batman: Arkham.
