Netflix's The Witcher TV show confirms 8 ep first season

By: Jak Connor | More News: HT & Movies | Posted: 9 hours, 54 mins ago

December last year we heard about a Marvel writer joining Netflix's Witcher TV series project, now that writer Lauren S. Hissrich has taken to Twitter to answer some questions about the upcoming series.

 

netflixs-witcher-tv-show-confirms-8-ep-first-season_05

 

Hissrich reveals and confirms that the first season of the show will only be featuring 8 episodes, this could be worrisome for some fans as they know how rich and in depth the world Andrzej Sapkowski created in his novels. Hissrich backs up the decision of only making the first season 8 episodes by saying "EIGHT EPISODES. Yes! I know, I know, it may not seem like enough for you, but creatively, it's the right call. The episodes can be tight, action-packed, rich in character and story, without lagging in the middle of the season. Sounds good to me, sound good to you?"

 

The head writer doesn't stop there either, she is asked by a fan when can we expect the series to debut and she says "2020. Who knows?! We're moving quickly ahead with everything -- like, my head is spinning around Exorcist-style, except with enthusiasm, not evil possession -- but one thing is certain: quality comes before speed. You'll get it as soon as humanly possible, and it'll be good." Hissrich finishes up her Twitter spree by saying that there still isn't a cast chosen yet, as well as the script for the other episodes besides the pilot are not even in existence. She does say that other writers will be joining her soon on this endeavor.

Brave Software lands deal with Dow Jones Media Group

By: Casey Pyne | More News: Cryptocurrency & Mining | Posted: 10 hours, 22 mins ago

This is one of the most exciting applications for blockchain tech and is a huge win for you, me and the online media companies we interact with! The ad-blocking browser Brave has partnered with Dow Jones Media Group. Why would they do that you ask? Especially when media groups detest ad-blocking software.

 

brave-software-lands-deal-dow-jones-media-group_190420181

 

Brave, while people love it for its ad-blocking capabilities, never intended to completely block ads, they want to do it better. They want to deliver more privacy and security, a faster browser experience, fewer middlemen and reward users and content creators.

 

This is where the blockchain comes in! Brave Software have created the Basic Attention Token (BAT) which will allow for blockchain based digital advertising to value user attention securely and accurately. Brendan Eich, the creator of Javascript and co-founder of Mozilla and Firefox is the CEO of Brave Software and the founder of BAT, wants to help protect users while also making sure content is rewarded appropriately.

GeForce GTX 1180 alleged specs, beats the $1200 TITAN Xp

By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: Video Cards | Posted: 11 hours, 26 mins ago

I've been on holiday for the past week and didn't cover the purported specs on the GeForce GTX 1180 from WCCFTech, something I wanted to have the time to properly sit down and think about and then, write about... so here we go.

 

geforce-gtx-1180-alleged-specs-freakin-beast_04

 

The site says "latest leaks, rumors and information provided" to them, without any names or proof, so this is all in the air. The site says the GeForce GTX 1180 will pack the unannounced Turing GPU architecture with the GT104 variant powering the GTX 1180, at up to 400mm2.

 

NVIDIA will pack an insane 3584 CUDA cores into the purported GeForce GTX 1180, with 8-16GB GDDR6 models on a 256-bit memory bus with the GDDR6 clocked at 16Gbps, blowing GDDR5X and HBM2 out of the water. This will provide the purported GTX 1180 with 512GB/sec of memory bandwidth up from the 320GB/sec offered on the GTX 1080 with its 8GB of GDDR5X at 10Gbps.

Fortnite is coming to China, with Tencent securing rights

By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: Gaming | Posted: 12 hours, 29 mins ago

PUBG is beyond a phenomenon in China and now Fortnite is going to join the fray, all thanks to a partnership between Epic Games and Chinese gaming giant Tencent.

 

fortnite-coming-china-tencent-securing-rights_03

 

Tencent has a 40% stake in Epic Games, with the company to distribute and publish Fortnite in China. Tencent also controls PUBG in China, so they will be doubling down with both Fortnite and PUBG in China which is a big, big deal. On top of that, Tencent will spend $15 million on marketing Fortnite in China, marketing the Battle Royale smash hit to Chinese gamers while stopping piracy and taking down illegal clones of the game which is a big problem for Battlegrounds in China.

 

Fortnite in China will be a big success due in part to Tencent spending time and money on the eSports scene in China for Fortnite, with the company reportedly building a dedicated app that will help gamers learn about Fortnite, watch live games, and more.

COD: Black Ops 4 multiplayer could be inspired by Overwatch

By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: Gaming | Posted: 13 hours, 28 mins ago

There are various theories about what Call of Duty: Black Ops 4's multiplayer is going to be like, with the latest tease that it will be similar to Overwatch from Blizzard, which falls under the Activision umbrella like Call of Duty.

 

cod-black-ops-4-multiplayer-inspired-overwatch_06

 

Charlie Intel is reporting that Black Ops 4 will feature multiplayer that is inspired by Overwatch and even LawBreakers, with another mention that Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 will indeed not feature a single-player story. The report starts off with "New Multiplayer information has been confirmed by more than one source so I can now talk about that more publicly. As of two days ago Multiplayer was in the worst state you have ever seen a Call of Duty multiplayer mode".

 

It continues: "Sources who have play-tested the mode claim that it is less like a call of duty mode and more like a Call of Duty Overwatch or a Call of Duty Lawbreakers. The Lawbreakers reference is incredibly apt considering what he told me next. Remember how I said the game was simultaneously boots on the ground and advanced movement? Well I can elaborate on that a little more too".
