The Miz Wants to Play DC's Booster Gold

WWE and Marine 5: Battleground star Mike “The Miz” Mizanin wants to play DC superhero Booster Gold.

In an interview with Uproxx, The Miz said he’d love to do either a Marvel or DC movie, with his dream role being Deadpool. Since the loud-mouthed mercenary is already taken by Ryan Reynolds, with The Miz admitting Reynolds “knocked it out of the park and did an absolutely incredible job” playing the character, his second choice would be Booster Gold.

Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3 Review

Playing Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3, if you’ve played games from similar series like Far Cry and Sniper Elite, gives a constant sense of deja vu. Its mechanics mostly competently echo those more popular franchises, but it doesn’t do any single thing notably better. Most of the time a new game in a thriving genre has a unique idea that distinguishes it and gives it a reason to exist, but not Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3. Yet, despite this lack of innovation, it still executes its open-world stealth combat well enough that it ends up being a fun and tightly constructed game that doesn’t overstay its welcome. Or it would be, if not for numerous graphical and technical problems.

Warhammer 40K: Dawn of War 3 – Final Review

Warhammer 40K: Dawn of War 3 is as bloody and chaotic as its bombastic sci-fi universe demands. After its predecessor memorably focused almost exclusively on unit tactics, the pendulum has swung back toward larger armies and basic base-building, creating some extremely challenging micromanagement with a complex set of rules that makes it tough to dive into. It’s not big on variety and its campaign has a scattered pace, but it’s a good real-time strategy game that makes some bold moves.

With its focus on controlling up to three powerful hero characters next to disposable troops, Dawn of War 3 feels like a spiritual successor to Blizzard’s divisive Warcraft 3, the game from which DotA and the entire MOBA genre was born. Dawn of War 3 is distinctly set apart by major differences like Relic’s signature control point resource generation systems, but its abandonment of Dawn of War 2’s cover, suppression, and weapon facing systems make give it more of that fun and fast old-school pacing. A little sadly, though, it feels less like Relic’s own unique style as a result.

New Nintendo 2DS XL Announced

Nintendo has revealed the New Nintendo 2DS XL, which will arrive in Australia/NZ on June 15 and the US on July 28. The new system will have a recommended retail price of USD $150 / AUD $200.

According to Nintendo the device should fill a hole between the existing Nintendo 2DS and New Nintendo 3DS XL systems, with a price and list of features that sits between both.

“This new addition to Nintendo’s portable hardware line demonstrates our commitment to the hand-held market,” said Nintendo of America President and COO Reggie Fils-Aime. “New Nintendo 2DS XL sports a beautiful clamshell design and offers a great balance between price and performance.”

The New Nintendo 2DS XL will boast a screen as large as the one on New Nintendo 3DS XL systems, though visuals will obviously only be displayed in 2D. Nintendo reports the system is lighter but still packs the same power as the New Nintendo 3DS XL.
