    Here’s a list of some of the podcasts we recommend to fill that void now that Game of Thrones has ended. This serialized fiction podcast is a portal fantasy that takes three teens from modern-day Pennsylvania and throws them into a fantastical realm.

  • Two Democratic senators now support a bill to ban the sale of loot boxes to children, giving the measure bipartisan support after Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO) proposed it two weeks ago. All games would be forbidden from selling loot boxes to children. Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) and Sen. Ed Markey (D-MA) endorsed Hawley’s bill.

  • Nintendo’s newest mobile game, Mario Kart Tour, is now in closed beta in the U.S. and Japan on Android devices. Early details on Mario Kart Tour indicate that Nintendo’s latest mobile effort will, like some of DeNA’s other games, rely heavily on microtransactions and “gacha”-style mechanics. While Mario Kart players may stick with a character for their main driver, Mario Kart Tour appears to incentivize unlocking and playing as other characters and karts by associating bonuses with each.

  • Raids are meant to be hard, but the first one in Tom Clancy’s The Division 2 is so hard that so far, no players on console have managed to beat it. PC users managed to do so within hours of the raid, Operation Dark Hours, going live on Thursday. PC players? But Kotaku notes that in Destiny 2, the most similar game with a PC and console presence, PC players were the first to beat its raids, but console players trailed only by hours. It’s now been two days since Operation Dark Hours went live, and

    In The Winter Soldier Steve is acclimatizing to the modern world. The Winter Soldier also features two locations that have an impact in Endgame, both in very different ways. The Winter Soldier sees Steve and Nat head to Jersey after uncovering information on Nick Fury’s USB drive. Since their first encounter in The Winter Soldier, the joking taunt “on your left” has become a symbol of the Falcon’s loyalty to his Captain.

  • I’ve spent years picking fire starters in Pokémon games, never once giving consideration to the other elements. Maybe that’s the Aries in me talking, but I’ve always been innately drawn to fire Pokémon. There’s a reason that one of the most iconic moments in the Pokémon anime involves Squirtles wearing sunglasses. And then I saw Detective Pikachu, a movie that takes great care in depicting realistic, believable monsters. Tim, meanwhile, has spent a lot of time closed off to the world, unwilling
