WWE Money In The Bank: How To Watch And Stream The PPV

about X hours ago from

The next WWE PPV is days away. Money in the Bank is coming on Sunday, May 19. The MITB match card is stacked, featuring numerous title defenses and two eight-superstar ladder matches where the winner receives a title match contract. There are numerous ways to watch this event, and we're breaking them down for you.

This year's event takes place at the XL Center in Hartford, Connecticut, and the main card begins at 4 PM PT / 7 PM ET / 12 AM BST (May 20) / 9 AM AET (May 20), with a Kickoff Show starting one hour prior on WWE's YouTube page. Normally, there is at least one match on pre-show, so you'll probably want to watch.

There are two ways to watch. The first is the traditional route, ordering the event through your local cable or satellite provider. This is the pricier way to go. DirectTV has the event listed at $55, and other providers will be around the same price for the PPV. Considering some areas of the United States don't have access to high-speed internet, this is the only route for them to go.

Game Of Thrones Episode 6 Photos: HBO Refuses To Spoil The Season 8 Finale

Game Of Thrones Episode 6 Photos: HBO Refuses To Spoil The Season 8 Finale

The long-awaited conclusion to Game of Thrones is just a few days away. Season 8, Episode 6 premieres this Sunday, May 19, marking the end of both this abbreviated season and the show overall. Following the preview trailer that debuted right after Episode 5, HBO has now released photos from the next episode--but they're a bit different than usual. Spoilers ahead.

HBO is usually quite reticent to spoil the upcoming episode with its previews; these aren't exactly modern movie trailers giving away major story beats and moments. The brief Episode 6 teaser kept the specifics to a real minimum, and now the preview photos are doing the same. They don't give away anything that wasn't already in the trailer, and just as notably, HBO has only shared a mere two images, which is far less than we typically see. Clearly, the network wants whatever is coming to be a surprise (although this does nothing to deal with the possibility of leaks, which have been a problem all season long).

As Fortnite Gets Constant Updates, Ubisoft Promises More Frequent Content Drops

about X hours ago from

Ubisoft is planning to increase the pace of its content updates for its upcoming slate of games. Asked if content drops are rapid enough to compete with Fortnite during an investor Q&A, Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot said the company is ramping up its efforts. He specifically named Rainbow Six Siege and the upcoming Ghost Recon Breakpoint as examples, but signaled this is a broader strategy going forward.

"It is something we have been working on in the last 24 months. Our teams are getting organized to come more regularly with content and lots of our games are going to come with drops of content and events on a more regular basis," Guillemot said. "Rainbow Six is increasing its content drop speed a lot already and you will see that this year. Ghost Recon Breakpoint will see content drops on a regular basis because they will also have the PVP, the co-op, and the campaign.

"So you can expect all the products, and not only Rainbow Six, having content drops regularly. It’s the new trend now in the industry and those drops are making lots of people come back to the games and also spend money in them."

The Division 2 Title Update 3 Patch Notes Revealed; First Raid Launching Tomorrow

about X hours ago from

Ubisoft has released the full patch notes for the latest update to The Division 2, Title Update 3. The major piece of content included in the update is Operation Dark Hours, The Division 2's first raid, but new features, apparel, and quality-of-life changes are included in Title Update 3 as well.

Operation Dark Hours is an eight-player raid available for those who've reached World Tier 5 and defeated Tidal Basin. The raid sends you and your team up again the Black Tusks, who have taken over the Washington National Airport. "Teamwork, collaboration, and adaptation will be necessary to defeat the Black Tusk," The Division 2 community manager Johan LindholmMore wrote in the Title Update 3 patch notes. Operation Dark Hours is scheduled to go live tomorrow, May 16 at 9:00 AM PT / 12:00 PM ET / 5:00 PM BST.

Ubisoft has announced that the first teams to complete Operation Dark Hours first will receive limited-time prizes. The very first team will have their team photo displayed in The Division 2's White House for all other players to see. Any team that completes the raid between May 16-23 will receive a cosmetic arm patch. If you can't pull together an eight-person team in time--which is a likely possibility considering the raid won't have matchmaking--you'll still be rewarded with a clan banner icon and a trophy just for completing the raid at any point in the future.

Rage 2 Review - Walker Wasteland Ranger

Rage 2 Review - Walker Wasteland Ranger

At a certain point in Rage 2, you become an unstoppable force, a lone wolf that can take down bandit camps, monsters 10 times your size, and crowds of deformed humanoids with your gratifying, destructive abilities and weapons. Not only does your suite of superpowers make combat a blast, it's the key to developing a satisfying momentum. It's too bad that, more often than not, the game doesn't do enough to keep that momentum going.

Rage 2 doesn't waste a lot of time trying to explain to you why things are the way they are. It instead thrusts you into an open world with its fair share of places to go and things to do. In addition to bandits, mutants, and monsters, there's the villainous organization, The Authority, who wiped out your hometown. As the last ranger--elite soldiers with superpowered suits--it's up to you to corral three key leaders by carrying out their missions and finishing Project Dagger, a biological weapon to kill the Authority's seemingly immortal tyrant General Cross. It doesn't really matter who's who, just that you need to destroy those who are hostile. You're only marginally "super" at the start, but the gradual ascent to hero status is rewarding in that you accumulate a roster of devastatingly fun toys.

Rage 2 Review Roundup

about X hours ago from

Rage 2 is nearly here, almost nine years after the first game launched. The long-awaited sequel's release date of May 14 has been a long time coming, but the PS4, Xbox One, and PC shooter will be in players' hands very soon.

We know Rage 2's DLC roadmap, and we know the game is getting some interesting Twitch features. And thanks to Rage 2 reviews going live just recently, we now know whether the game is any good.

In GameSpot's Rage 2 review, for example, Michael Higham awarded the game a 6/10. He said the game contains a "variety of clever, destructive abilities [that] make combat a blast," but also an "underwhelming narrative and bland characters."

Top 10 UK Games Chart: PS4's Days Gone Tops Chart For Third Consecutive Week

about X hours ago from

Sony's PS4 exclusive Days Gone has finished top of the UK physical games chart for the week ending May 11, according to sales monitor Chart-Track. Bend Studio's post-apocalyptic title has now finished top of the all-format chart for three weeks in a row.

In another quiet week for new releases, much of the chart paints a familiar picture. The top six are entirely unchanged, with Mortal Kombat 11 and FIFA 19 remaining in No.2 and No.3, respectively. The only new entry in the top 40 is the Nintendo Switch version of Saints Row: The Third - The Full Package, which debuts at No.15.

Days Gone's continued chart success comes despite a mixed critical reception, including a 5/10 from GameSpot. "I did a lot of things in Days Gone," said Kallie Plagge in our Days Gone review. "I burned every single Freaker nest; I cleared every ambush camp; I maxed out my bike; I took out a few optional hordes just because. Like Deacon with Sarah, I kept going because I hoped to find something, to follow a thread to a possibly fascinating or satisfying or impactful conclusion. But at the end of it all, I'd only gotten scraps."
