Vikings Season 5 Finale: Ivar Prepares For War With His Brothers In Sneak Peek Video

about X hours ago from

The end of Vikings Season 5 has come and it promised to be a truly bloody affair. After preparing for the ultimate war for Kattegat, the sons of Ragnar are ready to face each other once again in an episode fittingly titled "Ragnarok," an event in Norse mythology that included the death of many massive figures, from Odin and Thor to Freyr and Loki. It's also the title of a Marvel movie, but that's another kind of Viking altogether.

It's only fitting that after deciding he's actually a god that Ragnarok would come for Ivar (Alex Høgh Andersen) and his brothers. And as the clip above, which GameSpot is sharing exclusively, the reigning king of Kattegat is ready for anything his brothers are prepared to unleash on him.

"My fellow gods, at last, allowed me to see my fate," he said after learning the other sons of Ragnar were coming for him. "Now all of my brothers are against me. Now I know I'm the chosen one."

Fortnite Player Reported FaceTime Bug Nearly A Week Before It Became Public

about X hours ago from

Apparently, nearly a week before it became public knowledge, the FaceTime bug was reported to Apple by a young Fortnite player from Arizona. Apple support seemingly just didn't take the issue very seriously until the problem became more well-known.

According to the Wall Street Journal, 14-year-old Grant Thompson was trying to set up a FaceTime group conversation with some of his friends for a few rounds of Fortnite when he noticed the bug. Thompson told his mom and the two tried to contact Apple support about the issue, first through Twitter and Facebook and then via phone call and fax. Upon discovering that they needed a developer account to report the bug, the two managed to contact Apple's security team via email. However, Apple did not reward Thompson for his discovery--as the company usually does for those who report major issues with its software--and seemingly did not seriously address the FaceTime bug until it became public knowledge.

My teen found a major security flaw in Apple’s new iOS. He can listen in to your iPhone/iPad without your approval. I have video. Submitted bug report to @AppleSupport...waiting to hear back to provide details. Scary stuff! #apple #bugreport @foxnews

Mortal Kombat 11: All The Character Skins (So Far)

Mortal Kombat 11: All The Character Skins (So Far)


Mortal Kombat 11 is packing all the gruesome spectacle fans have come to expect from the series, but this entry adds one more element: more extensive cosmetic options! Or kosmetic, as the case may be.

At the gameplay debut event, director Ed Boon showed off some of the customization kustomization options. Each character has three pieces of gear that can be swapped in the menu, along with more general makeover options. Scorpion, for example, can swap his mask, katana, and spear, while other costume changes impact his overall appearance.

Those aren't the only customization options, though. We've also seen tabs for "Abilities" and "AI Behavior." We've also seen a partial character roster, our first extended look at gameplay, a bunch of fatalities, and story details. A beta test is coming in March for PS4 and Xbox One. The full game is coming on April 23 for PC, PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch.

NetherRealm will likely be debuting more skins as we get closer to release. The studio had its Mortal Kombat 11's first "Kombat Kast" stream scheduled for this week, but it was delayed due to dangerous weather in the studio's home city of Chicago. The new stream is scheduled for Tuesday, February 5, so we may see more characters and skins then.

In the meantime, check out all of the ones we've spotted so far below.

13 Best And Worst Super Bowl Ads And Commercials Of All Time


If there's anything as exciting a the Super Bowl, it's definitely the commercials that air during the big game. Every year, companies spend insane amounts of money for their chance to shine in front of TV's largest audience, attempting to capture the attention of America with creative new commercials.

Sometimes things go really well, whether it's the Budweiser frogs or a new trailer for whatever massive film released are on the horizon. Other times, though, commercials miss the mark. It's hard to forget the General Motors commercial in which a robot commits suicide after losing its job. Someone, somewhere thought that was a great idea and spent a bunch of money to bring it to life.

With over 50 years of Super Bowl games to look back on, there are plenty of advertisements to revisit and GameSpot has done just that. We've gone through a long list of Super Bowls to find the absolute best and worst big game commercials of all time. Take a look at them and sound off in the comments with your favorite--or least favorite-- ad. Also make sure to check out our guide to alternative programming options if you don't feel like watching the big game this year or just want to skip Maroon 5's halftime show.

about X hours ago from

The Division 2's release date of March 15 is fast approaching, but you'll soon be able to play even before then. The game's private beta starts soon on PS4, Xbox One, and PC--here are all the details.

The beta starts on February 7 at 1 AM PT / 4 AM ET / 9 AM GMT / 8 PM AET, and lasts for precisely four days. Luckily, you can preload the trial 24 hours before its scheduled start time.

As you'd expect, publisher Ubisoft says the beta will include a taste of what to expect in the final game. Two main missions are playable, along with five side missions and "additional activities in the open world." Three new Dark Zones will show off The Division 2's brand of PvPvE action, while you can sample the more organized PvP gameplay in a Conflict game mode named Skirmish.

True Detective Season 3 Theories From Episode 4

True Detective Season 3 Theories From Episode 4


In the fourth episode of True Detective: Season 3, titled "The Hour and the Day," we didn't get a whole lot of forward progression. True Detective is a slow-burning show, and the writers used this episode to meander a bit.

We see an extended clip of '80s Wayne and Amelia on a date; we later see their marriage disintegrating in the '90s timeline.

There is a lot of Roland: his mutual fondness and respect for Wayne, and also his protectiveness of him. Roland goes hard on Tom when the grieving father calls Wayne the N-word in a drunken rant. And Roland is also the one who fights for Wayne to get back on the Purcell case in the '90s.

Lastly, we get a promise of violence to come--appropriate because we've reached the midway point of the show, where the narrative climax ought to be. The lynch mob has followed Trash Man back to his home, and it looks like the gun-laden standoff will end in bloodshed.

Here are our newest True Detective theories, via Reddit and our personal analysis, from Episode 4. If you liked this gallery, check out our True Detective theories for Episodes 1 and 2 and our theories for Episode 3.

DC Batman Movie's Director Teases Villains And Release Date

about X hours ago from

The DC universe is changing so quickly, that it's easy to forget about the projects that were announced several years ago. Back when Ben Affleck was still definitely playing Batman and before the commercial and critical failure of Justice League, War for the Planet the Apes director Matt Reeves was hired to make a standalone Batman movie. It's been some time since we heard anything new about the project, but now Reeves has confirmed that the film is very much happening.

In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Reeves stated that he was "deeply embedded in getting Batman on its feet," and hinted at what fans can approach from his Batman movie when it arrives. "It's very much a point of view-driven, noir Batman tale," he said. "It's told very squarely on his shoulders, and I hope it's going to be a story that will be thrilling but also emotional. It's more Batman in his detective mode than we've seen in the films. The comics have a history of that. He's supposed to be the world's greatest detective, and that's not necessarily been a part of what the movies have been.

"I'd love this to be one where when we go on that journey of tracking down the criminals and trying to solve a crime, it's going to allow his character to have an arc so that he can go through a transformation."

With PS Plus Dumping PS3 And Vita, Sony Boosts PS4 Members' Cloud Storage

about X hours ago from

We've known for some time that the February 2019 lineup of PlayStation Plus games would mark the final month in which subscribers received freebies for PS3 and Vita. Going forward, each month will consist solely of free PS4 games. Seemingly to compensate users for this change, Sony is making some changes to another perk offered through PS Plus.

Starting in early February (an exact date was not specified), PS Plus members will have access to 100 GB of cloud storage of save games, a tenfold increase over the existing 10 GB limit. Unfortunately, there was no word on further changes to cloud saves, such as enabling auto-uploads and downloads on more than just your main console.

Sony did not say if this is the extent of its plans to make up for dropping PS3 and Vita games. Even for PS4 users without either of those systems, this change is a loss. It's not uncommon for the monthly freebies to offer cross-buy support with PS4 versions of them, giving the current-gen system even more than the two free games that are explicitly intended for it. That's the case in February; claiming both Vita games will get you access to their PS4 versions.
