The long wait for Rick and Morty's third season is almost over. Creators Justin Roiland and Dan Harmon revealed tonight that new episodes will resume on Adult Swim starting Sunday, July 30.
The news came during a special live stream event, where Roiland and Harmon responded to various audience questions even as Harmon busied himself typing out a new script for the series (with plenty of audience input). In addition to the premiere date, they also confirmed that Season 3 will clock in at 10 episodes (the same length as Season 2).
Fans of the series will no doubt remember that Season 3 technically premiered already, with Adult Swim airing "The Rickshank Redemption" several times in a row on April 1 as an unexpected April Fool's Day joke. That episode was broadcast once again leading up to the live stream, though rumors that Roiland and Harmon would debut the next episode, "Rickmancing the Stone," turned out to be false. The good news is that they did reveal a new trailer for Season 3, which you can check out below:

Many games features collectibles, secret endings, or unlockable power weapons as a reward for completing a campaign or demonstrating mastery of a game's mechanics. Some, like Nacht Der Untoten surpass all expectations and give players a whole new reason to keep players. Others...well they can’t all be winners can they? These are the worst rewards in video game history.

While Sense8 won't continue for another season, a two-hour finale for the Netflix Original series will release sometime next year.
Series co-creator Lana Wachowski shared the news in a letter posted on the show's official Facebook page.

Pac-Man Vs., developed in 2003 by Nintendo under Shigeru Miyamoto and Pac-Man creator Toru Iwatani, will be included in Bandai Namco's upcoming Nintendo Switch version of Namco Museum.
Namco Museum, which also includes arcade classics like the original Pac-Man, Dig Dug, Galaga, Rolling Thunder 2, and Splatterhouse, will be available to purchase for $30 on July 28.
Pac-Man Vs. — originally on GameCube — pits three player-controlled ghosts against one player-controlled Pac-Man in the classic Pac-Man maze. Playing local multiplayer with four players requires two separate Nintendo Switch consoles. A representative for Bandai Namco told IGN that the player controlling Pac-Man will use their Nintendo Switch in tabletop mode, controlling Pac-Man with one Joy-Con controller, while the three players chasing Pac-Man can control the ghosts on the second Switch in TV mode using the remaining three Joy-Con controllers.
