BlizzCon Protests Begin After Weeks of Planning

Dozens of protesters have gathered at the entrance of the Anaheim Convention Center to voice their support for Hong Kong democracy. The organizers announced a full day’s worth of events to draw attention to protests in Hong Kong during Blizzard Entertainment’s annual fan event.

Outside the Anaheim Convention Center, protesters are handing out pro-Hong Kong t-shirts and holding pro-democracy signs. A truck is towing around a large LED sign displaying slogans and messages.

Organizers began planning for protests at BlizzCon weeks in advance following the company’s decision to punish Hong Kong-based Hearthstone pro Ng Wai “Blitzchung” Chung for supporting the Hong Kong protests during an official Blizzard live stream. Blizzard punished Chung almost immediately, banning him from Hearthstone competition for a year and stripping him of his winnings.

Rick and Morty Exclusive New Image Shows Rick and Jerry at War

If you're a Rick and Morty fan, you can't help but love Jerry Smith. Someone has to, because the universe is rarely kind to this sad sack loser character. His father-in-law hates his guts. His wife is constantly on the verge of leaving him. His children either pity or despise him. Yet there's just something lovable about a guy who keeps absorbing everything the universe dishes out with a smile on his face.

Though if recent events are any indication, Rick and Morty: Season 4 may finally be Jerry's time to shine. We can exclusively debut an exclusive image from the Season 4 premiere, dubbed "Edge of ToMorty: Rick Die Rickpeat." Check it out below:

The Outer Worlds Has No Colourblind Mode Because It Doesn’t Need One

The Outer Worlds, unlike many games, does not feature any colourblind options in its settings menu. This is not an oversight, however; the game has been designed to be colourblind friendly by default.

Discussing The Outer Worlds on Twitter, Obsidian studio design director, Josh Sawyer, explained that the entire game has been designed to not rely on colour for information. Rather than important colours, the UI uses icons or other indicators to convey vital information.

Stranger Things Season 4 Reportedly Adding Four New Characters

SPOILERS AHEAD for Stranger Things Season 3

Stranger Things 4 is reportedly looking to cast four new roles for the upcoming season.

Sources recently confirmed to TVLine that series creators the Duffer Brothers are searching for four male actors to fulfill the recurring roles – three of which are said to be teenagers and one of which is apparently an adult character.

The outlet describes the three adolescent characters as a "metalhead," an "entitled jock," and a doppelgänger of "stoner" Jeff Spicoli from Fast Times at Ridgemont High, while the adult member of the group is said to possess characteristics that indicate he will factor into a storyline that takes place outside of Hawkins, Indiana.

DC Universe vs. HBO Max

Now that we know everything that's coming to HBO Max, many DC Comics fans have one question: What does this mean for DC Universe? The service launched last September on Batman Day and has since debuted multiple original series while also hosting thousands of comics and a small curated library of classic DC movies and TV shows. But ever since HBO Max was announced, fans have been wondering what will happen to the niche DC streamer since both fall under the auspices of parent company WarnerMedia. And a promotional video teasing that the DC Universe original series Doom Patrol would be joining the massive new Warner Bros. service for its sophomore season only raised more questions.

Red Dead 2 on PC Looks Better Than Ever

When Rockstar revealed that Red Dead Redemption 2 would be launching on PC this November, a year after its initial launch on consoles, we all wondered if the update between versions would be as massive an overhaul as it was when GTA 5 made the platform leap in 2015. The answer is, perhaps unsurprisingly, no - but that doesn’t mean that this is the exact same version that we experienced on PS4 and Xbox One last year.

I recently got a chance to spend an hour or so with Arthur and Dutch and the rest of the Van der Linde gang’s first PC outing. While I may not have been as flabbergasted as I was when we originally saw Red Dead 2 for the very first time, it was nonetheless impressive to see how the PC update has made some subtle - but very important - tweaks to the already-gorgeous world of New Hanover, Lemoyne and the rest of the West.
