Grand Theft Auto V – PlayStation 4 by Rockstar Games
Los Santos: a sprawling sun-soaked metropolis full of self-help gurus, starlets and fading celebrities, once the envy of the Western world, now struggling to stay afloat in an era of economic uncertainty and cheap reality TV. Amidst the turmoil, three very different criminals risk everything in a series of daring and dangerous heists that could set them up for life.
Currently, Wrestlemania will air on PPV and the WWE Network on Sunday, April 2 at 7 PM ET/4 PM PT. A Kickoff Show will air on the WWE Network prior to the main event, starting at 5 PM ET/2 PM PT. The second hour of the show will also air on the USA Network.
According to WWE Network's schedule for that day, a four hour time slot was given for Wrestlemania 33. Including the Kickoff Show, that's six hours for Wrestlemania. However, it could run longer. Industry-insider Dave Meltzer tweeted that the show will run six and a half hours.
WWE's larger PPVs, which include Summerslam, Survivor Series, Royal Rumble, and Wrestlemania, are typically longer shows, each of them hitting the six-hour mark over the past year. Wrestlemania going for almost seven isn't out of the question.
Considered the Super Bowl of sports entertainment, the first Wrestlemania took place in 1985 at New York City's Madison Square Garden. The show lasted two hours and sixteen minutes.

Sapkowski went on to say that, while he doesn't play games, he doesn't have anything against them or those who do play them. The full interview is a delightful read and well worth a look at Eurogamer.
The Witcher 3 wrapped up the story of Geralt as far as the games are concerned. No further plans for Witcher games have been confirmed, with CD Projekt Red instead currently in the process of developing a new game, Cyberpunk 2077, that's due out in the next few years.
The Thursday night gross is nearly as much as Kong: Skull Island made two weeks ago, and that movie went on to make $61 million across the whole weekend. Power Rangers isn't expected to make that much, but it is estimated to earn $30-$40 million over three days.
This is some way ahead of the other new releases hitting screens today--the sci-fi thriller Life and cop comedy Chips, which have been predicted to take $15-$20 million and $10-$12 million respectively.
However, even if Power Rangers makes as much as $40 million, it won't topple the hugely successful Beauty and the Beast from the top slot. The live-action Disney remake is predicated to earn another $90 million in its second weekend, following last week's record-breaking $174.8 million haul.
Power Rangers has received mixed reviews so far--check out GameSpot's opinion here. And if you want to know what happens in the post-credit scene, click here--be warned though, there are major spoilers.
Members of the Power Rangers report to Saturday detention after saving their town of Angel Grove and the world. This is where they met each other at the beginning of the movie. The teacher in the detention room takes attendance and calls out Tommy Oliver's name. This student is not seen, but the camera pans to an empty desk with a green jacket on the chair.
Fans of the Power Rangers franchise know what this means. Tommy Oliver was the Green Ranger. In the original series, he was introduced as a new student who was forced to become Rita's agent against the Power Rangers. He was a powerful enemy and was eventually freed from Rita's control and joined the others to make amends.
In the new movie, it is revealed that Rita originally was the Green Power Ranger on Zordon's team, millions of years ago. She still possesses the Green Power Coin, which she uses in her scepter. She may have been defeated, but we all know a good villain always finds a way back.
Adding to the Green Ranger tease in the movie, Sabban also tweeted the following video.

It's pretty obvious we'll be seeing the Green Ranger if a sequel happens. Casting information hasn't been released. This means either the role hasn't been cast, or Lionsgate is keeping it under wraps.
In terms of functionality and design, nothing else has changed about the app, which handles downloading updates and launching Blizzard's various PC games. The company announced its plans to eliminate the Battle.net name last year, and newer services--like Blizzard Streaming and Blizzard Voice--have launched with the new branding.
"When we created Battle.net, the idea of including a tailored online-gaming service together with your game was more of a novel concept, so we put a lot of focus on explaining what the service was and how it worked, including giving it a distinct name," Blizzard explained. "Over time, though, we've seen that there's been occasional confusion and inefficiencies related to having two separate identities under which everything falls--Blizzard and Battle.net. Given that built-in multiplayer support is a well-understood concept and more of a normal expectation these days, there isn't as much of a need to maintain a separate identity for what is essentially our networking technology."
For those of us with fond memories of playing games like Diablo II on Battle.net, it is somewhat of a sad thing to see the name abandoned after all these years. But hey, at least the Necromancer is coming back.
