Watch Mulder and Scully get closer to the truth in new X-Files trailer

After 13 years away from the small screen, FBI agents Dana Scully and Fox Mulder are coming back to find the truth that’s supposedly out there. The X-Files is set to return in January as a six-episode miniseries that picks up after the series ended in 2002, reuniting the duo to search for secrets about aliens, cover-ups, and liver-eating monsters who can squeeze through vents. We’ve already seen a few shots of the new show, but two new trailers for the reboot aired last night during the latest episodes of Gotham and Minority Report that give us the best idea yet of exactly what Mulder and Scully are up against.

2016’s reboot will be the first time Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny reprise the roles that made them most famous since…

Watch First Yakuza 6 Footage

ega’s teaser trailer for its upcoming action game Yakuza 6 has emerged online via YouTube user Nammo P. The video was first shown at the Sega booth during Tokyo Game Show, which ran from September 19-20. The trailer features renown Japanese actor Takeshi Kitano, who is confirmed to be in the game.

Kitano’s involvement is appropriate, given his experience in directing several Yakuza films in the 90s. He is also well known for his work hosting the comedy game show Takeshi’s Castle.

Yakuza 6 was announced exclusively for the PlayStation 4 during Sony’s press conference at this year’s Tokyo Game Show. The game will be released in Autumn 2016 for Japan, although no release in the West has been announced yet. In addition to Yakuza 6 Sega also announced Yakuza Kiwami for the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4, a remake of 2005’s Yakuza. Yakuza Kiwami will be released on January 21 in Japan.

The appearance of a new Yakuza was teased earlier this month, when the website for the series–known as Ryu Ga Gotoku in Japan–pointed to an announcement of sorts on September 15.

The Yakuza series follows Kazuma Kiryu’s rise through the ranks of the Yakuza and his ongoing conflicts with rival factions of the crime family. The latest numbered entry in the series, Yakuza 5, will be released digitally world-wide in Fall this year via the PlayStation Network.

Sonos has a new Play:5 speaker that can make itself sound great no matter where you put it

Wireless speakers have become essential gear for music lovers, running the gamut from portable Bluetooth devices to higher-end Wi-Fi systems from the likes of Denon and Samsung. Sitting atop all of them, however, is a company that’s been doing multi-room wireless audio for more than a decade — Sonos. Today it’s announcing two new products: an updated version of its flagship Play:5 speaker, and Trueplay, a software update that will let current and future Sonos owners custom-tune their speakers to sound ideal in any room, with any kind of placement.

Sonos is continuing to bet that the best way for it to differentiate itself is to provide a listening experience that is as close to what the artist intended in the studio as possible, and…

Slack revamps its Posts tool to better kill email

Previously, workplace communications app Slack has primarily worked like a (particularly advanced) chatroom, developed so that participants can write, search, and track short messages across multiple channels. But now the service has also updated its Posts system, making it easier for users to write longer messages that would before have been sent via email, and allowing other users to add comments directly to the text.

Posts existed in earlier versions of Slack but were unwieldy, sending users out of the app and into a web browser to write, and offering limited formatting tools. The new “Posts 2.0” now open in the Slack app itself, come with a suite of text options, and will auto-expand links or show images that you choose to share….

Conker DLC Canceled as Project Spark Goes Completely Free (Not Free-to-Play)

Project Spark, Microsoft’s Xbox One and PC game that lets you create your own games, is dumping its free-to-play model in favor of going completely free. As a result, future Conker content has been canceled.

Microsoft made the announcement this afternoon, revealing that the transition will happen when the game’s next update hits on October 5. Every piece of content in the game will be available to all users, including 200 new props (such as a swamp environment and dragon) that are on the way. The update also doubles the terrain and prop limits, which Microsoft says will allow for worlds twice as large as what’s currently possible.

Due to this shift, Microsoft will no longer be focused on releasing DLC. (Instead, it’ll put the onus on players to create content; the company says there are 200,000 active players sharing 300-400 levels per day). Specifically, that means Conker’s Big Reunion content–some of which has already been released–has been canceled.

If you bought the Project Spark retail disc and activated it after July 28, 2015, or have unused tokens in your account, you’ll be able to receive Microsoft Store credit equal to how much you spent. If you qualify, you can expect to get the credit 30-60 days after October 5.

Discontent is an iOS content blocker that finally rids the world of content

For years now, people on the web have complained about content. Too often it is biased, it’s clickbait, or worst of all, it’s supported by invasive advertisements, which learn your most private desires, store them in a database, and use them to sell you IKEA furniture timed to the dissolution of your marriage. Despite these drawbacks, the popularity of content has ensured that it can be found on most major websites, perpetually tantalizing us with its meretricious charms.
