Jack Black launched a YouTube gaming channel and he already has over 2 million subs

The internet has spoken—actor Jack Black is relevant, not just as a movie star or musician, but also as a game streamer. It's hard to argue otherwise after his new YouTube channel Jablinksi Games amassed over 1 million subscribers in less than a week, and then more than doubled that number to over 2.1 million subscribers a few days later. "I am proud to announce the launch of my new channel, Jablinksi. That short video has racked up nearly 6.4 million views, whereas a second video announcing the

China is licensing new games again, ending a nine-month freeze

China's media regulator has ended a nine-month freeze on new video game approvals by licensing 80 games for release in the country. None of the approved games belong to Tencent, the world's largest games company, which has been hit hard by the freeze—its stock has fallen by around 25% since the start of the year. The regulator will have to work through a backlog of around 5,000 games facing approval, and gaming executives in China told the FT that they expected censorship to be tightened as the

Fortnite adds a boombox that destroys buildings, players reckon it’s overpowered

Fortnite's newest item is a boombox that destroys structures and, at first glance, it looks like it could have a huge impact on 1v1 firefights. To stop an enemy's boombox, you just have to shoot it—but it has 600 health. It has a range of three tiles, will take more pulses to destroy metal than brick, and brick than wood, and does not deal any damage to players. I reckon it could have a huge impact on 1v1 firefights, especially between two players that like to build. A quick YouTube search for F

Hitman 2 performance analysis: what you need for 60fps

Hitman 2 offers 10 graphics settings, without really giving you an idea of how your performance will be affected if you change them around. We've tested them all using both a GTX 1060 6GB and an RX 580 8GB, with the game running at 1080p. MSI also provided three of its gaming notebooks for testing, the GS63VR with GTX 1060 6GB, GE63VR with GTX 1070, and GT73VR with GTX 1080. It's when you start dropping the resolution and the graphics quality that you start to see the big differences come into p

Doctor Who has given us a Doctor without inner conflict

There’s a pained look in the eyes of Whitaker’s Doctor; at last we see she is still the woman who keeps running. The pacifism of Whitaker’s Doctor, relentless even by the standards of the series, is ripe for confrontation. Whitaker’s Doctor chooses not to intervene except when the plot requires her to, and even then, her attempts at taking action are treated as a joke that quickly becomes tiresome. Whitaker’s Doctor needs doubt, she needs an inner life, and she needs to be truly tested. We know

Destroyer director Karyn Kusama on Hollywood and horror directors

Karyn Kusama, maybe more than most filmmakers working today, is aware of how the film industry squeezes its workforce into neatly categorized boxes. Karyn Kusama: I guess I sort of resist the notion that Erin isn’t her own very specific character and very uniquely drawn woman. Kusama: It’s funny, you make two horror movies, or movies that could be construed as horror, and now you’re called a horror director. [Laughs] I don’t actively resist being called a horror director, because I do love eleme
