about X hours ago from

The PlayStation Store puts games on sale regularly--its current weekly sale includes major deals from Ubisoft and Square Enix--but it launched a flash sale this morning that lists some PS4 games for up to 40% off. Running until Monday, March 11 at 8 AM PT / 11 AM EST, this US-only, limited-time sale includes deals on Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, Divinity: Original Sin II, Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden, and more.

One of the most exciting deals is Divinity: Original Sin II's Definitive Edition, which is currently listed for $36 (40% off). Both the core game and its definitive edition received a 10/10 from GameSpot; in our Divinity: Original Sin II review, critic Brett Todd called Divinity: Original Sin II "one of the most captivating role-playing games ever made," praising its detailed plot, expansive tactical combat, extensive character customization options, and gorgeous visuals. Divinity also just received a new update, with more gift bags planned for 2019, so it's a good time to pick it up.

oh for the hed, Captain Marvel: Review, End Credits, Cat, And More

about X hours ago from

Captain Marvel is now in theaters, providing the Marvel Cinematic Universe its first female lead superhero and setting the stage for Avengers: Endgame. Carol Danvers' debut slips comfortably into 10 years of world-building and continuity, and that leaves a lot to unpack. Here's everything on the powerful new addition to the MCU.

First and foremost, you might just be wondering if the movie itself is any good. For that we have our Captain Marvel review. Critic Michael Rougeau concluded that while the movie is enjoyable, it's hampered by its placement sandwiched between two halves of the Thanos story.

"In the MCU, timing is everything. Black Panther appearing just before Infinity War last year whetted fans' appetites for more Wakanda, making the Avengers' arrival there a cheer-worthy moment. Seeing Ant-Man and the Wasp a few months later provided a pleasant palette cleanser to wash the taste of misery from our mouths. Now, with mere weeks to go before the current phase of the Marvel Cinematic Universe concludes with Avengers: Endgame, Captain Marvel--despite being a good movie in its own right--feels like a forced cul-de-sac we have to drive impatiently around to get where we really want to go."

Earth Has Just One Blockbuster Left

Remember Blockbuster? The retail chain where you could rent movies and video games? It went bankrupt in 2013 and closed all of its U.S. stores and 72 other UK stores the following year. After gutting the business nearly five years ago, only one blue-and-yellow store is left standing on the entire planet Earth.

As CNN reports, the Bend, Oregon Blockbuster is the last one left after the only other store--located in Morley, Australia--announced it'll close its doors on March 31. According to a picture posted to the official Blockbuster Morley Facebook account, the last day of renting was March 7, with a huge sale happening on March 8. "We wish to thank all of our customers, past and present, for all your support and friendship," the post reads.

Oregan Blockbuster's General Manager, Sandi Harding, expressed her unflinching sadness at the news. "We all have a kinship with the other Blockbusters," Harding said. She is excited that her store's the only one remaining, though. There's got to be some level of prestige that comes with being the only Blockbuster left on the planet. As such, Harding's store is selling hats and shirts in celebration of being the last store.

PS4's Best-Selling PSN Games For February Revealed

about X hours ago from

Sony has revealed the list of last month's best-selling PS4 games on PSN. February was packed with high-profile releases, from Far Cry: New Dawn to Metro Exodus, but it was BioWare's cooperative RPG/shooter, Anthem, that took the top spot in both North America and Europe.

Despite its rocky launch, Anthem has similarly been performing well at retail, at least in the UK. It debuted at No. 1 in the region and managed to hold on to that position for the week ending March 2.

Taking the runner-up spot in North America was Bandai Namco's crossover fighting game, Jump Force. Meanwhile, Grand Theft Auto V continues to defy the specter of age, coming in at No. 2 in Europe and rounding out the top three in North America.
