Watch social media get deleted in the first music video from Dope

Sundance favorite Dope has a lot going for it. It has the likes of Forest Whitaker and Pharrell Williams backing it. It has A$AP Rocky and Zoe Kravitz in the cast. And, so unlike most other summer blockbusters, it stars a punk rock-loving black nerd (Shameik Moore) just trying to make it in Compton. Now the film has its own music video. In “Don’t Get Deleted,” movie band Awreeoh (get it?

Is this Pharrell’s idea of the next unplugging movement? Dope hits theaters on June 19th.

Google begins publicly reporting self-driving car accidents

Google is beginning to publicly detail its driverless car accidents in light of heightened concern about their safety following reports that they’ve already been in several collisions. Accidents will be detailed on a monthly basis as part of a new report that Google is starting to release on the project’s progress. In its first report, for the month of May, Google also details all prior accidents that the vehicles have gotten into. None of which, Google says, were its car’s fault.

XCOM 2 Dev "Not Opposed" to Xbox One, PS4 Versions

When XCOM 2 launches later this year, it will–unlike its predecessor–be available exclusively on PC. Developer Firaxis hasn’t shot down the possibility of it coming to Xbox One or PS4 in the future, and it’s now explained the rationale behind forgoing a simultaneous launch on consoles.

“When we looked at what we wanted to do with the sequel, we had all these very, very ambitious goals,” creative director Jake Solomon told IGN. This includes things like improved destruction and procedurally generated levels, which would require the relatively small team at Firaxis “to use all of our studio expertise … and our expertise here is PC. That’s our home, and that’s where we’re really comfortable.”

“When we have our meetings, when we talk about stuff, we only talk about PC,” Solomon explained. “We talk about ‘What is the experience like on PC? What does the mouse feel like in this experience?'”

Focusing exclusively on PC right out of the gate means XCOM 2 will be better tailored to a keyboard-and-mouse control scheme and interface. (Controller support is planned for post-launch.) And knowing that players are likely to be sitting closer to their screen than they would be on consoles, Firaxis is free to provide more information. This is said to include things like the reasoning for your hit-chance going up or down.

If you’re still clinging to the hope that you’ll be able to play XCOM 2 on Xbox One or PS4, it sounds like it’s possible, but you’ll be waiting longer than PC gamers. “We’re certainly not opposed to that,” Solomon said, “but I can assure that’s something we’re not even discussing yet.”

XCOM 2 is set for release on PC in November. For more, check out our story about its announcement.

Here's the first trailer for the movie Steven Spielberg made with the Coen brothers

It’s been three years since Steven Spielberg’s Lincoln hit theaters, and today we’re getting our first look at his new film Bridge of Spies. If that title doesn’t sound familiar right away, that’s because until recently it didn’t really exist; the movie had largely been known just as the Untitled Cold War Thriller until getting its proper name in March. It’s based on the story of James Donovan, an attorney that was brought in to negotiate the release of downed U-2 pilot Francis Gary Powers at the height of the Cold War.

While the film pairs up Spielberg with Tom Hanks once again, it’s another creative collaboration that really stands out here. Joel and Ethan Coen, who have been writing and directing their own singular films like No…

New Witcher 3 PS4 and PC Patch Out Now, Xbox One Coming Later

Gamers looking to sink some time into The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt this weekend were given some good news today, as CD Projekt Red is now rolling out the game’s next patch. This update should fix the XP bug, increase the size of the hard-to-read menu text, and make various other changes and improvements.

According to online reports, the patch is rolling out now on PlayStation 4 and PC. It remains to be seen when the Xbox One version of the patch will arrive.

CD Projekt Red has yet to officially announce the availability of the new patch, which is 1.05 on PC and 1.04 on consoles, so we don’t have the final patch notes just yet. Those should be available soon.

Preliminary patch notes, which might not resemble the final changelog, are available here. When the final patch notes come in, we’ll update this post accordingly.

In other recent Witcher 3 news, Sony has confirmed that the open-world RPG was the top-selling PS4 title on the PlayStation Network in May.
