It was only a matter of time – GTA goes PUBG

With Player Unknown’s Battlegrounds (PUBG) enjoying massive popularity, it was only a matter of time before other properties adopted their unique battle royal play style. Rolling out yesterday, “Smuggler’s Run” is GTA Online’s (GTA) newest expansion that does just that.

Smuggler’s Run in a nutshell: “Blending the adrenaline rush of Drop Zone with the claustrophobic tension of a match of Penned In, this brutal Adversary Mode is a deadly scavenger hunt where second place is not an option,”…”Up to four teams parachute into a periodically shrinking kill box strewn with a lethal assortment of guns, explosives and Weaponized Vehicles. Work together, find a vehicle, and fight opposing teams and the shrinking map to survive and win.” – Rockstar

Not into words or reading? Watch the trailer for it:

Looks familiar right? Everything, minus the gun-outfitted vehicles, screams PUBG. If you were planning on waiting until PUBG comes to the XBone later this year, maybe this is the game that holds you over until you can ditch the keyboard and mouse for good.

They have an IMDB for movie cars. There goes my weekend.

Unknown

 

If you are anything like me then movie cars get you excited for a flick just as much as their human counterparts do. From KITT and The General Lee to Herbie and The Batmobile, movie cars have been a huge part of Hollywood nostalgia. A place to find and search for all of them has not existed until right NOW. If you think you’ve wasted time on the normal IMDB.com then you will for sure lose all your friends while searching on http://imcdb.org. The International Movie Car Data Base, IMCDB for short, is the complete listing of every car in every movie and TV show, pretty much ever. It works pretty simply, start by selecting the make and model of a car and from there the website lists all the movies and TV shows that car was seen in. Pretty awesome.

What are you still doing here? Go give it a try!

Just When I Thought I Was Out, They Pull Me Back In: Amazon Signs Deal to Stream HBO Shows

SourceTake that, Netflix. Beginning on May 21 the multi-year agreement will enable Amazon Prime subscribers to stream series including The Sopranos, Six Feet Under, The Wire, and later — about three years after episodes initially air — Girls, The Newsroom and Veep. In addition, by year end Amazon will offer HBO GO on its new Fire TV platform. (It’s already available to HBO subscribers on other devices including Google’s Chromecast.) The shows will still be available on HBO’s platforms, but the companies say that this is the first time the premium pay TV channel’s shows have been licensed to an online-only streaming service. “As owners of our original programming, we have always sought to capitalize on that investment,” HBO EVP of Business and Legal Affairs Glenn Whitehead says.

Amazon shares are up 1.4% pre market, and Netflix is down 2.7%, following the announcement. That suggests investors didn’t fully accept Netflix CEO Reed Hastings’ claim on Monday that the streaming video providers can peacefully coexist. “It’s a very much not a zero-sum game and we are building this ecosystem together that’s about Internet video and the more players there are in Internet video, the bigger that ecosystem gets,” he said. “The big theme is Internet video is taking share away from linear video. So we are all participating in that transformation.” He has more mixed feelings about HBO: In January he joked that HBO chief Richard Plepler’s Netflix password was probably: “Netflix bitch.”

Stifel analyst Benjamin Mogil says HBO probably made its deal with Amazon, instead of Netflix, because there’s less overlap among their subscribers. Still, it’s “clearly a negative for Netflix, given the high profile nature of the HBO content” and could “somewhat limit” the streaming company’s just-announced plan to raise its prices for new customers. He notes, though, that HBO and Amazon released few details about the deal terms and that it doesn’t include all HBO shows.

Fuckin’ internet is right, Tony. Last week I wrote about how I didn’t trust Amazon anymore because they had the craziest person in the world Gary Busey pimp their TV product. I take all that back now. Any streaming service that gives me another outlet to watch my pal Tony is alright in my book. Why Netflix never signed this deal is beyond me, but it’s their loss. HBO has the best shows to offer to a streaming service, and the biggest advantage is their rewatchability factor. I’ve watched The Sopranos three times from beginning to end and if I get sick this weekend I could start all over and have just as much fun. Plus, the list of older HBO shows is the television version of murderer’s row. The Sopranos. The Wire. Deadwood. Oz. Entourage. The Life and Times of Tim. Six  Feet Under. And that’s just my personal short list. If you can’t find a show to fall in love with and watch over and over on that list then you hate television. Simple as that. Amazon Prime just pulled a game changing move. Watch your ass, Netlifx.

Kanye West Reminds Us That HE, and Only HE, Can Be Considered the World’s Biggest Asshole

Source – Kanye West says performing on his Yeezus tour  is similar to going to war.

The 36-year-old claimed in a recent interview  that he is risking his life onstage and compared his musical antics to that of a  police officer or soldier.

The rapper explained that he could ‘slip’  during one of his complex routines on stage and that he is putting his ‘life at  risk, literally’.

The All Of The Lights singer told SaturdayNightOnline.com: ‘Like, I’m just giving of my body  on the stage.

I’m putting my life at risk,  literally!’

Kanye went on to explain: ‘When I think about  when I’m on the Can’t Tell Me Nothing, and Coldest Winter moment, like that mountain goes really, really high.

Nobody, and I mean nobody, loves Kanye West more than Kanye West. I can honestly say I’ve never heard someone ramble like Kanye. He’s the only person who can talk about finances, elephants and slaves in the same sentence. He’s great like Michelangelo AND Walt Disney. Interesting combination. The icing on the cake was obviously Kanye comparing his concert performances to being a police officer or a soldier in war. I wish I could say I was surprised by this, but every time you doubt Kanye, he proves just how big of an asshole he really can be. Hey Kanye: Walt Disney is dead. You can’t work with him. Get over it.
