J.J. Abrams's New Game Spyjinx Gets More Details

Fortnite creator Epic Games and J.J. Abrams' Bad Robot Games have teamed up to release a mobile game for iOS and Android called Spyjinx, a game long in the works.

In 2015, J.J. Abrams and Epic Games announced that Spyjinx was in development and a closed beta would be available in 2016. Obviously, that didn't happen and now, four years later, the dev team has released more details and is finally inching the game closer to launch.

Birds Of Prey: Cathy Yan Discusses The Movie's Most Gratuitous Scene

Birds Of Prey may not be the deepest movie in the DC cinematic universe, but it's certainly one of the most fun. As a neon-splashed, ultraviolent romp through street-level Gotham City, it's delightfully wacky and irreverent--but one moment sticks out from the rest both in tone and context. About midway through, the film's big bad, Roman Sionis (Ewan McGregor) has a complete meltdown in his nightclub, prompting him to viciously attack and sexually harass one of the female patrons while Black...

The Best Switch Controller (April 2020): Pro Controllers, Fight Sticks, And More

Back when the Nintendo Switch console first released in March 2017, I started looking for the best Nintendo Switch controller to make all my games play just a bit better. While the current model (which sports improved battery life over the launch model) is great, the tiny, flat Joy-Cons at the console's sides leave something to be desired (at least the Switch Lite has an actual D-Pad). Thankfully, Switch players have all kinds of options when it comes to Nintendo Switch accessories. Whether...
