Be wowed and amazed as we become an explosion of information about the world of game development from Riot Games to why the Oculus Rift is poised to take over the world…and how we are powerless to stop it. Quake in fear as we go balls deep into entertainment news, from Predator reboots to dystopian worlds we are ready to see on the big screen.
