Mon, 20 Feb 2017 16:00:39 +0000 - Pirates of the Caribbean 5's Super Bowl trailer gave us a look at an amazing ghost ship in the film, captained by Jack's new rival, the undead Captain Salazar.

Mon, 20 Feb 2017 14:30:13 +0000 - Syfy's show Heroes of Cosplay was the first reality TV show to tackle the often drama-laden world of cosplay, but any cosplayer will tell you that it missed the mark.

Over the weekend a new show called Cosplay Melee was announced and it looks like it will take far more from the channel's wildly successful show Face Off than it will from Heroes.

|Five Games That Make The PS4 Pro Worth It
Mon, 20 Feb 2017 11:00:40 +0000 - I only bought the PS4 Pro because Sony told me to. Sure, I knew what 4K was, and I could spell HDR, but that was about it. My TV at the time was still merely “full” HD (a descriptor I’d since learn to be a vicious lie) and I always figured 30fps was about the best a console scrub could hope for.
So what exactly was the PS4 Pro for then? It wasn’t clear. It’s what was next. So I bought it.
