Rick and Morty: Creators Explain Delayed Season 4 Renewal
Rick and Morty co-creators Dan Harmon and Justin Roiland have opened up a bit more about why it took so long to renew the show.
The hit animated series was renewed for 70 more episodes earlier in May following a delay, which was reportedly due to overlong contract negotiations with Adult Swim's parent company Turner.
Speaking to GQ before the huge renewal, Harmon explained he wanted to ensure the show's long-term future past Season 4. This is why Harmon and Roiland were holding out for a bigger contract.
Monster Hunter World Update 4.0 Adds New Elder Dragon
Monster Hunter World's latest free update, 4.0, is now out and it adds a new Elder Dragon, among a variety of gameplay changes.
Per Capcom's blog post, players can now take on the Empress of Flame, Lunastra, a returning Elder Dragon who has appeared in past Monster Hunter titles.
Lunastra is more aggressive than her male counterpart Teostra, with both able to fight side-by-side. Lunastra can also easily alter the environment, and teamwork is essential when trying to defeat her.
Taking down Lunastra will net players rare materials which can be used to craft special armor and weapons. These materials can also be combined with those from Nergigante and Xeno'jiiva, among other monsters.

Game of Thrones Finds New Way to Protect Season 8’s Secrets
HBO’s continuing efforts to combat leaks and keep the last season of Game of Thrones a secret now includes the use of vanishing scripts.
That’s at least according to Jaime Lannister himself, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, revealed during an interview with Elite Daily at the Cannes Film Festival.
“They’re very very strict. It’s reached a crazy level this year," Coster-Waldau said. "We actually get the scripts, and then when we’ve shot the scene — and we only have it digitally — and then when you’ve done the scene, it just vanishes. It’s like Mission: Impossible. 'This will self-destruct.'”
12 The Flash & Arrow Crossovers We Want
The Arrowverse crossover has become an annual tradition for the popular DC superhero shows, as with 2017's "Crisis on Earth-X" and 2016's "Invasion!" But now that Season 6 of Arrow has come to an end, we can't help but wonder where next year's crossover between that show, The Flash, Supergirl and Legends of Tomorrow will take us.
We don't know much about what The CW has planned for the next big crossover, but there's no doubt it's coming. So as we look forward to more news on the next Arrowverse epic, here are 12 DC comics we'd like to see adapted into epic TV crossovers!
Recently, The CW announced that Batwoman and Gotham City will both be making their Arrowverse debut in the next crossover. That's exciting news, though here's why Batwoman's presence could create new problems.
FIFA 19 for Nintendo Switch Will Have Improved Graphics
FIFA 19 will have improved graphics on Nintendo Switch despite not utilizing the Frostbite engine.
Per Dream Team, this year's entry will look a lot better than FIFA 18 on Switch and the game will run on a custom engine. However, there's still a chance FIFA titles on Switch might run on Frostbite in the future.
"I’m not closing the door on that possibility,” Andrei Lazarescu said, supervising producer for FIFA World Cup mode. “However we didn’t want to create a dumbed-down version of the Frostbite engine.
"The intent was never to have a one-off custom engine that were never going to touch again. It was to have that as a baseline and then build from there.”
Battlefield V Teases Brand New Game Mode
New details about Battlefield V have emerged since its official reveal earlier this month.
Battlefield V will feature a new multiplayer game mode called Airborne, where players parachute onto the map and destroy or defend artillery on the ground, all while explosive dogfights presumably take place in the air above.
The new mode was introduced with very few details on the Battlefield franchise's official Twitter account. The tweet stated: "Say hello to Airborne: a new Battlefield V mode where you'll parachute into the battlefield and work with your squad to destroy enemy artillery, or defend them and make sure the threat from above is dealt with." It included the image below.
These Deadpool Figures Will Kick the Crap Out of Your Other Toys
Deadpool 2 is great. If you haven't seen it, wait until after you've read this, watched the video, and then clicked through the links below, then go see it. You don't have to click all of them, but one or two would be nice. Call your work and tell them you're sick, if you have to. If you work at the movie theater, you might have to come up with a more creative explanation, like you're in a fugue state or something. What I'm trying to say is, Deadpool 2 is very enjoyable.
Deadpool toys are even more fun because you get to use them to watch the work of the most incredible movie studio on Earth: the studio of your imagination. Just like any big-name property, there is a range of toys to suit your Deadpool needs. From the classic posable action figures of your youth to the super-crisp detail of a collector figure like Sideshow Toys' 1/6-scale figure, there is a Deadpool toy to kick your other toys' toy-butts.
