The Culture: The USS Discovery from ‘Star Trek Discovery’ is, Yeah

In all honestly, I’m about as big of a Star Trek fan as you can possibly imagine. I’ve read the novels, I’ve watched all the series — sans The Original Series because there is only so much Kirk a sane person can handle. CBS All Access revealed a new Star Trek series was on the way earlier this year. At San Diego Comicon this weekend, the network detailed the title of the new show. Hold on to your captain’s chairs folks, I give you the USS Discovery of Star Trek Discovery.

See It Soon: Liberty & More Come to Netflix’s ‘Degrassi’

Inside, we’re all just teenagers struggling to make it through junior high school and avoid dating everyone in our immediate vicinity. Ok, that’s not necessarily true, but back in the early 2000s there wasn’t a teen show as popular as Degreasi. Cancelled by Teen Nick and CTV, Netflix snatched up the rights to the half-hour drama a few years ago. First we got an additional season of the show rebranded as Degrassi Next Class. Next week we’ll get a special episode of show to mark its 500th airing — with Page, Marco, Liberty and some of the show’s earlier characters.

Introducing the Xbox One S for $299,

By  •  Xbox One

The Xbox One is reasonably powerful and pretty quiet. It’s also a giant behemoth, easily able to fill any shelf with its own girth and not incredibly stylish. At the Electronic Entertainment Expo, Microsoft announced the Xbox One S, a smaller, quieter, straight-edged version of the Xbox One it already sells. I’ve never been on the fence about upgrading a piece of electronics more.

Halo Wars 2 Beta has arrived folks

Microsoft showed up to yesterday’s E3 2016 Xbox Media Briefing with tons of good news in tow. The details that it shared on Halo Wars 2, were surprisingly mixed though.

There’s some good news though; those of you with an Xbox One can go ahead and play the game now.

‘Halo Wars 2’ will be playable at E3 2016

By  •  Xbox Games

Sure, the most talked-about game in Microsoft’s E3 2016 line-up will likely be Gears of War 4. With much respect, I’m not that big a fan of the franchise. What’ll get my heart thumping is when Microsoft talks more about Halo Wars 2. The company has to have something new to share about the game; it’s already confirmed that Halo Wars 2 will be playable on the show floor.

Instead, you’ll want to stay inside and play NBA 2K16 absolutely free.
