NBC Universal recently announced their $3.8 billion acquisition of Dreamworks Animation. Naturally, fans everywhere were curious about what the company's upcoming roster of releases might hold.



The curiosity was definitely satisfied when rumors began to circulate that Universal was encouraging DreamWorks to revive the massively popular Shrek franchise. If the sources over at The Hollywood Reporter hold up, it looks like Shrek 5 will in fact be hittin' theaters in 2019.

The Nostalrius debate reached its head a while ago when a sh*toload of Vanilla server martyrs banded together in a wild mob to throw themselves off a cliff in a staged outcry of unrest over Blizzard's decision to shut down Nostalrius. See video:



Well, Blizzard, expectedly so, is busy making final preparations with Legion; but that didn't stop them from putting aside some time to play through a dungeon on Nostalrius. Here's what the WoW team of execs had to say about their experience:

“We got to play on the server for a little while,” he divulges. “It's really cool, they did an incredible job of building an experience that feels classic and authentic and that's incredibly hard to do. The painstaking effort it takes to research old videos to try and figure out what the data was because it doesn't exist anymore so you have to pull it out of the nether to put that experience together.

“The leadership team got together and we did a Stratholme run. John Hight [production director on WoW] was a Hunter and had a level eight pet and pulled half the instance, wiped us a few times. It was like, ‘why is the whole instance pulling? Oh it's your level eight pet!’ J [Allen Brack, VP and executive producer] was our priest, he’s like [casting buffs] and then sit and drink for 45 seconds, cast again, sit and drink,” he chuckles. “It's funny, we laugh at all that but it was a very moving experience because it's nostalgic and we all have very fond memories of playing that, that's when we were hardcore and all that stuff.”

Game director Tom Chilton also went on to offer up his take on Legacy servers:

“I think it's something that interests Blizzard and we've always had the thought that it would cool to do a classic server or a Burning Crusade server or a Lich King server or whatever. 

“It's difficult to pull off and the real cost in terms of our ability to do stuff for the existing game or our ability to do other new projects would be meaningfully affected if we decided to put our resources behind that. Unfortunately, it's not just the push of a button.”

Adventure time has many mysteries to solve.

Viscious Cycle has announced a new game based on the popular animated series 'Adventure Time.' The game is described as "an action-oriented twist on the graphic adventure genre..." And it will be focus on Finn and Jake solving mathematical mysteries in the land of Ooo. 

Lets just hope Viscious Cycle does justice to 'Adventure Time,' because the last game was just snoozeville.

Co-creator of the series Michael Dante DiMartino took to his tumblr to announce that Book 3 is finished:

Today we finished the final sound mix of Book 3 at Levels audio. That's our awesome mixer Adrian on the board mixing the sound effects, foley, dialogue, and music for the finale episode while Bryan watches behind him (usually I'm next to Bryan, but I was taking the photo). Can't believe we've finished an entire season's worth of shows. We're so proud of everyone who worked so hard to make Book 3 the best season of Korra yet! I know you are all excited to watch — believe me, we're excited to share it with you! I wish I could say I had some news about Korra's release date, but I'm sorry to say I don't.

NIS America Sets a Solid Standard for How Other Companies Should Explain Their Censorship Decisions

Take note, the following game we're about to cover errs on the side of NSFW. Knowing that, proceed or don't, as you will.

NIS America previously announced that the erotic dungeon crawler, Criminal Girls 2: Party Favors would make its debut this September on Vita. The announcement however, came with a bit of a big catch, and that centered on the company's decision to make a series of modifications to make the game more 'appropriate.'

Nintendo is finally getting on the phone and tablet game bandwagon. They will be releasing the first Nintendo mobile game in 2016, the free-to-play Miitomo. In the game you will create a character, answer questions about their personality and watch them interact with other characters based on those traits.



According to Kotaku, it's "a social networking game, but for Miis". This will be the first release of five smartphone games that Nintendo has announced.

The host of Pokémon Smash! played the X&Y copy Masuda lent them. They covered some early areas and they chose Froakie as a starter.

1. Fletchling was found, battled with Froakie and caught in the first route.

2. Fishing returns! The hosts fished up an Octillery, battled it with a Honedge (Honedge used what seemed to be Aerial Ace and Shadow Sneak) and caught it too!

3. Surfing (HM?) returns and items hidden as Pokéball on the ground also returns.

4. Inkay was found on tall grass in a small island and was caught with a Great Ball.

Pokémon GO! Has Been out Less than a Month, and It's Already Inspired Dating Apps Like These

In less than a month Pokémon GO! has taken this planet by storm. Look around you, and you're apt to see someone with a fixed gaze on their phones, swiping upwards aggressively, scowling at their screens, trying to catch 'em all.

It's insane how big this game is. Pokémon GO! is more popular than Tinder right now, and was more popular than porn for a brief bit of time as well. Plus Pokémon GO! is tracking more than 21 million daily active users, so that's pretty damn chill...
