Ariana Grande got a Pokemon tattoo. The 25-year-old pop sensation revealed her very large Eevee tattoo recently through her Instagram story. Additionally, tattoo artist Kane Navasard showed off the tattoo in another post on Instagram, writing that the ink was for "the best Pokemon trainer in the game, [Ariana Grande]."

It's a nice-looking tattoo. With colour it might have looked too flashy; the black-and-white style is more classic. You can see the tattoo in the image below.

Elder Scrolls Online Reveals Season Of The Dragon, New Annual Event Showcasing Elsweyr

Celebrating its fifth anniversary this year, The Elder Scrolls Online has steadily grown into an experience that many fans of Bethesda's RPG franchise wanted back when it debuted back in 2014. As an open world MMO, players can freely explore the many regions of Tamriel embarking quests, exploring dungeons, and acquiring rare loot. With the releases of previous expansions set in familiar areas, including Morrowind and Summerset, the scale and content of the online world has steadily seen improvement. During a livestream hosted by Twitch, the developers of ESO revealed the next major expansion set in the land of Elsweyr, along with an ambitious set of DLCs and updates releasing this year.

Set for launch on June 4, the Elsweyr expansion takes place in the homeland of the Khajit. Not only will new quests and events open up for veteran players in the region, but it will also be a new starting point for newcomers. As a part of their annual event for the Season of the Dragon, the developers plan to launch four unique DLCs throughout 2019. In the reveal trailer for Elsweyr, dragons have once again found their way to Tamriel, prompting the many adventurers in the land to face off against the new threat. In addition to being tied into the all new story quests, these dragons will also be a part of major world events.

about X hours ago from

A new Ghostbusters movie is coming. Entertainment Weekly reports that Jason Reitman, the son of original Ghostbusters director Ivan Reitman, will co-write and direct the new film that is not connected to the 2016 edition featuring an all-female cast of ghost hunters. Specific plot points for Jason Reitman's new movie are being kept under wraps for now, but he did confirm that it's set in the present day. It is not a reboot, but it's a continuation of the original series.

"This is the next chapter in the original franchise. It is not a reboot," he told EW. "What happened in the '80s happened in the '80s, and this is set in the present day."

The new Ghostbusters movie will start shooting later this year, and it's expected to hit theatres in summer 2020. The other writer is Gil Kenan, who earned an Oscar nomination for Monster House.

Black Ops 4 Zombies Update And Event Now Live

Treyarch has rolled out a new update for Call of Duty: Black Ops 4. As the developer previously detailed, all three of the game's modes have gotten some attention with this week's patch, but the most was saved for Zombies, which has received a new in-game event and other content.

Beginning January 15, Treyarch is holding a 115 Day Celebration in Zombies--a reference to the element used to create the undead monsters in Black Ops lore. During the event, players will receive twice the normal amount of XP, weapon XP, and Nebulium Plasma. The 115 Day Celebration is live on all platforms and is scheduled to end at 10 AM PT / 1 PM ET / 6 PM GMT on January 18.

Additionally, PS4 players can now take on Gauntlets in Zombies mode. Treyarch describes these as "30-round challenges with unique rules governing gameplay in each round." Players will earn medals and rewards depending on how many rounds they're able to complete, as well as a "unique reward" for their Emblem if they manage to clear round 30 without failing.

Disney's Live-Action Pinocchio Movie Reportedly Loses Director, Status In Question

about X hours ago from

Disney's new live-action Pinocchio movie has suffered what sounds like a major setback. Cinematographer Seamus McGarvey said in a new interview that director Paul King (Paddington 1 and 2), pulled out of the project over the holidays for family reasons.

McGarvey told Discussing Film that King personally chose him to be the cinematographer for the Pinocchio movie, so now that he's out, it means McGarvey is as well. He initially said the Pinocchio movie "has been canceled," but he went on to say that Disney is looking for a new director, and then production may start again. Or it might not, McGarvey said.

"I don't think it's a secret anymore, but the film has been canceled. Over the holidays, over Christmas, the director pulled out of the film for family reasons," he explained. "Disney are trying to find a new director. They're trying to get it going but I'm unlikely to be involved now because Paul King, who directed Paddington 1 and 2, wanted me to be his [director of photography] on the film.

2K And NBA Agree To Huge New Deal Estimated At More Than $1 Billion

about X hours ago from

2K Sports and the NBA have announced a major extension on their licensing deal for the NBA 2K series in a move that's said to be worth north of $1 billion.

The official line is that this is a "significant, multiyear global partnership extension." Terms were not disclosed, but The Wall Street Journal reports that Take-Two, which owns 2K, is set to pay as much as $1.1 billion over seven years to the NBA and its players' union. That information is credited to a source who is said to have knowledge of the deal.

According to the report, the $1.1 billion over seven years is "more than double" what Take-Two paid the NBA for its previous licensing deal that was announced in 2011. The figure is said to be based on a percentage of sales of NBA 2K games.

Fortnite Season 8 Is Approaching, So Of Course A Mysterious Orb Has Shown Up

Fortnite Season 8 Is Approaching, So Of Course A Mysterious Orb Has Shown Up

Something strange is once again afoot in Fortnite. With only a few weeks remaining in Season 7, it appears developer Epic has already begun laying the groundwork for Season 8 of Battle Royale mode, as players have discovered a couple of mysterious new objects around the map.

Perhaps the most notable is a strange, icy sphere that can be seen floating above the castle in Polar Peak, the new snowy mountain introduced at the start of Season 7. At the moment the sphere is simply floating in the air, but its sudden, inexplicable appearance is certainly reminiscent of the infamous purple cube that materialized last summer and ultimately led up to the start of Season 6.

The sphere isn't the only strange object to mysteriously appear in Fortnite. Players have managed to destroy the iceberg near Happy Hamlet, revealing a bunker underneath--although it's unclear where it leads or what purpose it serves. On top of that, players have spotted mysterious, giant eggs locked in prison cells beneath Polar Peak's castle.

After Fortnite Lawsuits, Forza Horizon 4 Removes Carlton And Floss Dance Emotes

about X hours ago from

A new update for Microsoft's racing game Forza Horizon 4 removes the "Carlton" and "Floss" dance emotes, which are similar to the ones that led to lawsuits against Epic over their use in Fortnite. Microsoft quietly removed the dance emotes in the Xbox One and PC game's latest update. The patch notes posted on the Forza website only state that "The 'Carlton' and 'Floss' avatar emotes are no longer available."

Microsoft provided no explanation for why the dance emotes were removed, but it seems likely that the company saw what happened with Fortnite and wanted to avoid legal action being taken against its game. This is only guesswork, and we've contacted Microsoft in an attempt to get more details on why the emotes were removed.

Alfonso Ribeiro, the actor from Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, sued Epic Games for using "The Carlton" in Fortnite, while Backpack Kid also sued Epic for using "Floss" in the game. Those cases, which seek to see the game stop using the emotes and pay damages, are ongoing. Epic has also been sued by rapper Terrence Ferguson, who claims Epic stole his Milly Rock dance for Fortnite's "Swipe It" emote.

New Xbox One Games With Gold Now Available

about X hours ago from

We're midway through January, which means the second half of this month's free Games with Gold are now available. Through the end of the month, Xbox Live Gold subscribers can grab another pair of titles at no charge on Xbox One and Xbox 360, and they'll be yours to keep and play so long as you have an active subscription.

On the Xbox One side, the off-road racer WRC 6 FIA World Rally Championship is free download from now until February 15. Xbox 360's free game, meanwhile, is Far Cry 2, which is still regarded as one of the best entries in the open-world shooter series. It's up for grabs until January 31, and thanks to backwards compatibility, it's also playable on Xbox One.

On top of those two titles, Gold subscribers still have a little more time to download the poignant 2D platformer Celeste, which is free throughout the entire month of January. Regarded as one of 2018's best games thanks to its challenging gameplay and touching story, Celeste follows a young woman's struggle to reach the top of a mountain. Developer Matt Makes Games also has a free DLC expansion on the horizon for it, making this a good opportunity to experience the game if you haven't yet.
