Nintendo Details Features for Nintendo Switch Online

  • Cinelinx
The online service many have been waiting to hear about is finally being fleshed out!  Check out the details for Nintendo Switch Online within...

When Nintendo first announced the Nintendo Switch, they let it be known that Switch owners would eventually have to pay to use their services.  Initially, that was set to begin roughly 6 months after the release of Nintendo's mobile console.  Fast-forward to the present and it's been a year and two months since the Nintendo Switch released and gamers have yet to pay for the online system.  Never you mind about that, though, because Nintendo Switch Online is still part of Nintendo's plan, it's launching this September, and it's going to have a few things Nintendo fans have been clamoring for.

First, lets recap the price.  For years, the online service price point had been set by Microsoft and Sony, charging people $60 for a year subscription for Xbox Live and Playstation Plus.

‘Streets of Red: Devil’s Dare Deluxe’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

There’s something oh-so appealing about the simplicity of the side-scrolling brawler. From the golden days of Renegade, Double Dragon, Final Fight and Streets of Rage, the genre has a pick-up-and-play appeal that suits a quick blast of local co-op gaming (which I am a huge fan of) and, if done correctly, can be pretty much timeless.

In recent years, apart from remakes and re-releases the genre has been relatively quiet, especially from larger studios. It has fallen to independent developers to move the genre forward, refining the formula whilst subtly adding extra elements to give depth. The last game I played in the genre was Wulverblade (also on Switch) which was an excellent and extremely tough title that was steeped in British history. Streets of Red takes a different approach which makes the game just as much of a must-have title for fans of Beat ‘em Ups whilst also carving out its own niche.

Enjoying the Cluster that is WWE 2K18

I generally consider myself a pretty cultured guy. But I do allow myself one mindless indulgence: wrestling video games. Throughout my life, I may have given WCW/nWo Revenge more hours than any other game. While I readily admit that the annually-released WWE 2K series is a low-effort cash grab, that hasn’t been enough to keep me away from the series. So when 2K18 was finally ported to the Switch, I was excited. Being able to mindlessly thumb through cage matches while I watch Netflix with my wife or ride the bus sounded like the perfect game. Shortly after the release, there was a firestorm. While

Fantasy Strike coming to Nintendo Switch

Fantasy Strike, the new fighter from Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix lead designer David Sirlin, is set to hit Nintendo Switch this summer, launching simultaneously with the PC and PlayStation 4 versions.

Currently in Steam Early Access, Fantasy Strike has been rapidly deploying new features, modes, and increasing production values. In their most recent patch, Sirlin Games added professional voice acting and facial animation for all 10 characters as well as a brand new Team Battle mode. In a Team Battle, players choose 3 characters each and play a variety of different matchups.

“Fantasy Strike is the perfect fighting game for Switch,” said Sirlin. “The Switch is a take-anywhere console, so fighting games would be great on it if not for how notoriously difficult they are to control. Usually, playing a fighting game on a JoyCon would be tough, but Fantasy Strike is designed specifically for that. Detach the JoyCons, give one to a friend,

Goodbye Charlie – 1964 DVD Review and Tribute to Debbie Reynolds

It was a serious sucker punch to all film fans when we lost Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds within a day of each other. There have been many tributes to Carrie Fisher and rightfully so. I have not seen that many for Debbie Reynolds so I would like to pay her tribute by reviewing one of her lost gems of a movie, Goodbye Charlie from 1964, based on a play by George Axelrod and directed by Vincent Minnelli.

I can recall seeing this on a network movie night in the late 60s or early 70s, I remember liking it but seeing it again after this many years I was astonished at how funny it really is, and how touching.

The setup is simple, Charlie Sorrell is a writer, sometime screen writer and notorious womanizer. At a Hollywood party on a yacht he is shot by a jealous husband (Walter Matthau in

The Top Five Animal Kingdom Moments from Season 1

Not since “Sons of Anarchy” has there been a TV crime drama that is so riveting as “Animal Kingdom.” This show, like “Sons”, proves that the family that kills together stays together. “Animal Kingdom”, which debuted on June 14, 2016, portrays a strong-willed woman named Janine “Smurf” Cody, played by the very talented Ellen Barkin, as the head of a Southern Cali family criminal organization much like Katy Segal did in “Sons”. Ellen is probably best-known for her sexy siren roles in major motion pictures like “Sea of Love”, “Switch”, and “Oceans 13”, where she starred opposite hunks like Al

Video Essay. Drifting

  • MUBI
The twelfth entry in an on-going series of audiovisual essays by Cristina Álvarez López and Adrian Martin. Mubi will be showing João Pedro Rodrigues's To Die Like a Man (2009) March 4 - April 2 and Two Drifters (2005) March 5 - April 3, 2016 in the United States.The concept that unifies the work of Portuguese filmmaker João Pedro Rodrigues (signed alone or in collaboration with João Rui Guerra da Mata) is that of shifting: a shifting of gender (in any direction from male to female, via all hybrid possibilities in-between), and of genre (romantic melodrama crossed with the fantastique, or documentary sliding over into fiction as in The Last Time I Saw Macao, 2012), even of species (confusion of human and animal realms in O Fantasma, 2000). Most gripping and beguiling of all is the director’s fondness for unexpectedly supernatural themes—all the better to blur the distinction between mortality and immortality, a key theme

Star Of 'My Three Sons' Dies

Star Of 'My Three Sons' Dies
Thousand Oaks, Calif. (AP) — Don Grady, who was one of television's most beloved big brothers as Robbie Douglas on the long-running 1960s hit "My Three Sons," died Wednesday. He was 68.

His "My Three Sons" co-star Barry Livingston, who played youngest brother Ernie, confirmed Grady's death to The Associated Press. Livingston said Grady had been suffering from cancer and receiving hospice care at his home in Thousand Oaks, Calif. But the exact cause and place of death were not immediately clear.

"It's the oldest cliche in the world when TV brothers start referring to each other like biological brothers, but he was the oldest, and somebody I looked up to and learned from a great deal about life," Livingston said.

Born in San Diego as Don Louis Agrati, Grady had a brief stint singing and dancing on "The Mickey Mouse Club" starting at age 13.

But he was best known by far

Ellen Barkin joins Twitter, lets the F-bombs fly

  • Pop2it
Actress Ellen Barkin has officially joined Twitter, and her tweets are creating quite the R-rated splash.

She's best known for her roles in movies such as "Switch" and "Ocean's Thirteen," as well as her high profile 2006 divorce from millionaire Ronald Perelman. But Barkin's over-the-top, profanity-laced tweets are what's getting her some new-found attention this week. With a sassy tone (perhaps best described as angry truck driver meets drunk sailor meets gangster-diva meets angsty teenager?), @EllenBarkin has been using her account to broadcast plenty of explicitly bold musings, from her disdain for John Huntsman to public banter with her friend, Bravo's Andy Cohen.

Yes, the Twitterverse is seeing a totally new side of the "Bronx girl" (as she specifies in her bio). And honestly, we're loving it. Just be careful if you get an @ reply from Barkin -- it'll probably contain some seriously Nsfw language.

Here are a few of her

'Planet Of The Apes' Parties Like It's 1968 At Box Office

'The Change-Up' fails to similarly revive old premise.

The "Planet of the Apes" franchise was all the rage in the late 1960s, and this past weekend, what's old was new again as "Rise of the Planet of the Apes" dominated the box office.

The latest installment of the "Apes" series (itself a loose prequel to the 2001 reboot) enjoyed the fifth-biggest August opening ever (ninth when adjusted for ticket price inflation) with $54 million across 5,400 screens in North America, according to studio estimates. It also earned much more favorable reviews than the Tim Burton-directed "Planet of the Apes," released a decade ago and starring Mark Wahlberg.

Released in 1968, the original "Planet of the Apes" was based on a novel by Pierre Boulle and spawned several sequels, a cartoon series,
