Supernatural's Secret Ingredient Is 3,500 Pounds Of Steel, Even 300 Episodes Later

When Supernatural first premiered on The WB back in 2005--the same year YouTube came into existence--it was introduced as the story of two brothers, reunited and fighting the evil forces their family had been chasing for years. Now, 300 episodes later, Supernatural is still exactly that. While secondary characters have come and gone, it always comes back to the tale of Sam Winchester (Jared Padalecki) and his brother Dean (Jensen Ackles), traveling from town-to-town and vanquishing whatever otherworldly forces seem to be wreaking havoc.

There's a third piece of the Winchester puzzle that's been with the brothers since the very beginning, though, and it's as integral to the formula as anyone or anything else on the show. When Dean rolled back into his brother's life in the show's pilot, he did it in his trusty 1967 Chevrolet Impala, nicknamed "Baby" and passed down to him by his dad.

Baby, in many ways, is the heart and soul of Supernatural. For the brothers, it is the armory of weapons they use to fight against any number of demonic entities, their home on long nights with no motel room in sight, and the vessel that takes them to a new locale each week. The car has even had its own episode of the series in Season 11's "Baby," which told a story from the Impala's point of view.

Pokemon Go Adds More Gen 4 Pokemon, Makes Big Battle Changes

Following Palkia's arrival in Raid Battles earlier this week, a few new Pokemon have begun appearing in Pokemon Go. Niantic has introduced another handful of monsters originally from the series' fourth-generation titles, Diamond and Pearl, to the mobile game, including a couple of new evolved forms and baby Pokemon.

If you have a Sinnoh Stone, you're now able to evolve Lickitung, Tangela, Aipom, and Yanma into their respective evolutions: Lickilicky, Tangrowth, Ambipom, and Yanmega. Additionally, male Kirlia can be evolved into the Psychic/Fighting Pokemon Gallade, while female Snorunt can be evolved into Froslass.

A handful of new monsters can also be found in the wild. You'll now have a chance of encountering Combee, Glameow, and the fossil Pokemon Shieldon and Cranidos out in the field. Happiny, Mime Jr., and Bonsly--the baby forms of Chansey, Mr. Mime, and Sudowoodo, respectively--also now have a chance of hatching from certain Eggs.

Free Limited-Time Dragon Ball Z Season Deal, And Other February Anime Discounts

about X hours ago from

Microsoft has announced a ton of anime deals for February. There are some massive deals live right now for Funimation movies and TV series that will last until February 4, but several less aggressive discounts will continue for the rest of the month.

Until February 4, the Dragon Ball Z movies Battle of Gods--which is offered in the original Japanese and dubbed--and Resurrection F are discounted to $3 and $4 respectively. In Resurrection F's case, it's actually cheaper to buy the movie than it is to rent it. For even more Dragon Ball Z, Microsoft is offering the first season for free until February 4, and you can buy the other eight seasons at the discounted price of $7 each. Goku and his friend's story continues in Dragon Ball Super, and Microsoft is selling the first five seasons of the series at a 63 percent discount each.

Every other Funimation series on sale until February 4 is an ecchi anime, so expect a ton of sexual fan service and partial nudity. Of the lot, Prison School and Keijo are probably the two noticeable standouts, although Rosario + Vampire and My First Girlfriend is a Gal are worth looking at if you're a fan of harem romantic comedies. The full list of anime on sale until February 4 is outlined below.

Fallout 76's Latest Patches Have Been A Mess

about X hours ago from

A recent patch for Fallout 76 reintroduced problems that had already been fixed in a previous patch. But in an ironic twist, Bethesda's hotfix to take care of the issue again introduced a bug that's even worse. The problem appears to be ongoing, so it's difficult to tell when a new fix will be issued to fix the issues caused by the fix to the fix.

Rock Paper Shotgun reports that when Patch 5 rolled out, it brought back issues that had already been fixed in Patch 4, such as making bobby pins much heavier than they should be. The company issued a mea culpa and quickly sent out a hotfix, but that seems to have introduced a new bug that trashes crafting materials.

Users on the Fallout 76 subreddit noticed that the autoscrapping system isn't working as intended, and many complain that they've lost materials that they had converted to bulk. The studio hasn't given any further updates on when to expect the latest issue to be resolved.
