This review is based off a volume that collects Green Lanterns: Rebirth #1 and Green Lanterns #1-6
Since the Rebirth era kicked off last summer, both critics and fans have rightfully praised titles such as Superman, Detective Comics and Green Arrow, but one that I feel has been criminally overlooked by many is that of Green Lanterns. Maybe it’s the fact that it’s one of the rare titles in the line that boldly allows newer characters to enjoy time in the spotlight, but I assure you that it provides one of the most rewarding reading experiences DC currently offers and its first collected edition, Rage Planet, does nothing but prove my point.
What I really like about the Green Lanterns ongoing series as a whole is that Sam Humphries accomplishes what all the best stories featuring ringslingers have done since 2004: Telling awesome tales and generously building the mythology while doing so. »

Going into my thirtieth hour of Yakuza 0, I thought I had seen all that the game had to offer. I participated in hundreds of fist fights, saw so much bromance that I thought I was on the set of MTV’s failed game show, and had completed the game’s story, which had more twists and turns than any rollercoaster I had ever ridden. That was when I stumbled upon an erotic video store, watched a video of a scantily clad Japanese woman playing with balloons, and then heard series protagonist Kazuma Kiryu moan as the camera panned over to a box of tissues.
Now, a lot of games feature virtual sex shops that players can see. Grand Theft Auto is filled with them (what PS2 owning teenager can forget Sex Shop XXX, after all?), but the interaction rarely goes beyond staring at the store’s front entrance. That’s »

Xbox One and Windows 10 exclusive Scalebound has been canceled, Microsoft has announced via a press release. The confirmation comes following reports from Kotaku and Eurogamer that stated the project was struggling to stay afloat, with sources telling the latter that the ambitious RPG had been experiencing troubles ever since several “senior members” had taken a leave of absence due to the stress of working on the title.
The statement released by Microsoft (via IGN) reads as follows:
After careful deliberation, Microsoft Studios has come to the decision to end production for Scalebound. We’re working hard to deliver an amazing lineup of games to our fans this year, including Halo Wars 2, Crackdown 3, State of Decay 2, Sea of Thieves and other great experiences.
Disappointing news indeed, not just for anyone who had been following the game’s hype since its announcement back at Microsoft’s 2014 E3 conference, but for Platinum Games, »

Last year, Disney abruptly cancelled its toys-to-life line, Disney Infinity, citing a lack of growth and rising development costs. What was doubly disappointing about the cancellation was that, behind the scenes, a small army of game designers, artists and sculptors were readying more missions and figures for a planned Disney Infinity 4.0, which would have included toys and missions based on, among other things, Guardians Of The Galaxy 2, Thor: Ragnarok and the forthcoming Pirates Of The Caribbean sequel, Dead Men Tell No Tales.
