How many times have you fobbed off your friends, your significant other or your family to squeeze in an extra few hours of game time? Come on, be honest, we’re not here to judge you. On the contrary, we’re here to let you know we understand your plight, and know all-too-well how difficult it can be to resist the allure of a world built entirely for you to play around in.
Some people just don’t get it. How could you prefer to spend the weekend exploring an uncharted world full of magic, dragons and giant swords instead of getting utterly smashed. How could you be so rude as to ignore the person insistent on talking to you on the bus by furiously trying to kill pigs by throwing birds at them
Listen everyone, it’s not as if we have a choice here. These games aren’t going to play themselves, »

The latest trailer goes live action and blends it with gameplay, come check it out along with lots of other information on the latest reboot of Need for Speed.
EA showed off the latest Need For Speed at Gamescom today and it blends live action cut scenes with in-game racing. This is cool in a way, but I personally find live action cut scenes in games super cheesy!
EA thinks it is awesome:
...Create a powerful story that’s emotional but also pushes the boundaries of technology by adding real-time compositing to the power of Frostbite. This allows us, for the first time ever, to blend live action film seamlessly with your in-game car and garage.”
The good news is that we also got a bunch of new info to go with it. The game has 5 ways to play and will dynamically change as you evolve within the game including »

When Gil Goldschein took over as head of Bunim/Murray Productions in April, he knew he had big shoes to fill. The company's well-liked co-founder, Jonathan Murray, 59 — partner Mary-Ellis Bunim died in 2004 from cancer — had stepped aside after spending nearly three decades as a reality TV pioneer, first by co-creating The Real World in 1992 and later producing Project Runway and Keeping Up With the Kardashians, among dozens of shows. However, just four months into his gig, Goldschein has a headline-making show with E!'s I Am Cait, which debuted July 26 to 2.

Update: MTV exec Susanne Daniels is exiting the cable network to run originals at YouTube.
With Daniels’ departure, Mina Lefevre has been promoted to exec VP and head of scripted development.
Daniels, who’s been with MTV for three years, held the post of president of programming at MTV. In an internal memo to the net’s staff, she is said to be leaving to pursue another opportunity. Her YouTube position was announced shortly after the MTV on Wednesday.
During her time at the cabler, Daniels and her team launched scripted series “Finding Carter,” “Faking It” and “Scream,” all currently on MTV’s slate, plus the short-lived Victoria Justice vehicle “Eye Candy.” On the unscripted side, she was instrumental in developing dating show “Are You The One?” and “Broke A$$ Game Show.” She also worked on “Real World,” “Challenges,” “Ridiculousness” and “Fantasy Factory.”

It was the summer of 1995. Bill Clinton was president, Rudy Giuliani was mayor of New York, and Oj Simpson was on trial. That summer’s youth-oriented movies included Pixar's first movie Toy Story, the Disney musical Pocahontas — and Kids, in which wayward, stoned teens fuck each other senseless and head-stomp random strangers.
It might be hard to remember just how notorious Larry Clark's indie-skater odysey was. The movie grossed a modest $7 million at the box office that summer — a wild success when you account for the fact that it »
We've broken down the new Batman V Superman trailer. How much of this did you spot?
This article contains potential Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice spoilers.
If you weren't a fan of the first trailer for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, perhaps this new one will make a believer out of you.
Not only is the new trailer considerably more action-packed, it puts an equal amount of spotlight on both Batman and Superman, and gives us our first look at Gal Gadot in action as Wonder Woman. Just on the off chance that you haven't seen it yet, or maybe just want to watch it again, here it is. Then we'll get into the deeper stuff.
But there's an awful lot to unpack in these three minutes, so we'd better get to it.

It's time for a spouse swap! On Friday's episode of "Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars," Kendra Wilkinson reaches her breaking point and tells estranged hubby Hank Baskett that she can no longer be his puppet. Fed up with the couple's road blocks, directors Jim and Elizabeth Carroll decide to switch things up and have all of the couples swap spouses in order to break through their walls. The former NFL player is strategically paired with Tami Roman, who the 30-year-old has butted heads with all season long. In the exclusive sneak peek, we get a look at the "Real World" alum and the dad-of-two on a mock date -- and Tami can't help but bring up the drama with Kendra. "I brought up the dinner fight between Kendra and I when I was on the date with Hank because that's his woman," Tami explains in an interview. "I wanted him »

‘Having ditched those baffling ads featuring latex pensioners, it’s now rebranding itself as the lender of choice for the sort of people David Cameron successfully wooed at the last election’
Pity Wonga. Go on, try. Clobbered for £2.6m by the Financial Conduct Authority for sending out fake legal letters, faced with losses of £37.3m in 2014, considered so morally inferior for its exorbitant interest rates that even MPs and archbishops feel able to have a go at it, and all the while suffering the stigma of association with Newcastle United Fc. Its name is worse than mud. It is Wonga.
Having ditched those baffling ads featuring latex pensioners, it’s now rebranding itself as the lender of choice for the sort of people David Cameron successfully wooed at the last election. Hence this latest ad. “What are you responsible for?” asks a sensible lady voiceover, as we meet a dinner lady, »

That’s right Indie Game lovers, our day has come once again. The beloved, cyan-suited, side-scroller, Shovel Knight is taking big steps “into the Real World!!” as Yacht Club Games has put it. Earning over 100 awards (including tons of Game of the Year accolades) and more than 700,000 copies sold, our favorite spade-wielding hero will finally be coming to retail.
After Shovel Knight was successfully chosen to be distributed via Steam through the Greenlight initiative, it’s safe to say this might be one of Yacht Club Games’ biggest announcements to date. After all, it’s always interesting to see what affect the addition of physical copies (rather than just digital) has on the company and the game.
In the case of Shovel Knight, this is a bold and well-deserved leap for the franchise and clearly shows what’s possible with the support of a community and a little “good-ol-fashioned” video game luck. »

It has been a long and pothole-ridden road to “Scream,” which premiered on MTV tonight (June 30). While the one-time music video channel has produced reality shows that have been both genre-defining and ratings-winning (including but not limited too “The Real World” and “Jersey Shore”), its history with scripted dramas makes the Philadelphia Phillies current win-loss record look impressive. MTV has been trying to break the scripted drama code for more than 20 years, with very little to show for it. Personal crises, sexual mischief, groundbreaking depictions of same-sex relationships and other elements that have worked for reality TV have rarely struck gold with the network’s audiences when an actual script supervisor involved. “Awkward” and “Teen Wolf” -- a pair of shows that premiered in 2011 -- are still on the air, and have garnered mostly positive reviews to go with small but devoted followings. (“Awkward” will begin airing its fifth and »

Despite being known for celebrating the unusual and the extreme, reality television might be the genre that has done the best job of normalizing the lesbian, gay and bisexual experience for America’s households.
While there will always be outliers like Phil Robertson of A&E’s “Duck Dynasty,” reality TV more frequently offers viewers a look into the lives of subjects like AIDS educator Pedro Zamora (who had a commitment ceremony on MTV’s “The Real World”) and Richard Hatch, the first winner of CBS’ “Survivor,” as well as more recent contestants on CW’s “America’s Next Top Model.”
“Reality TV has been significantly influential in changing the public perception of what it means to be gay or lesbian,” says Matthew Breen, editor-in-chief of the Advocate and deputy editor of Out magazine.
Breen says reality shows that feature gays make it easier for public figures like Neil Patrick Harris, »

Tna Wrestler Eric Young was part of the Slammiversary main event on Sunday night and after the show he took to Twitter to fire off an expletive-filled tweet.
Real world!!! If you watched #Slammiversary2015 and didn’t like it Go F**K Yourself #ProWrestling #proud #5thday #agame #teameffort
Young ended up deleting the tweet about a half hour later and then posted a censored version of it.
