The Walking Dead has officially signed off 2015 by Sunday’s most recent midseason finale “Start to Finish,” but if you’re anything like us, the first half of Season 6 produced some strong reactions. Now, showrunner Scott Gimple defends the show’s credibility after the big Glenn fakeout, as well as its introduction of Negan, and what to expect in the 2016 return.
Both The Flash and Arrow will have quite a bit of ‘splaining to do in setting up Legends of Tomorrow through this week’s dual crossover, and we can officially check one item off the list. The source of Vandal Savage’s power is revealed in our first clip from The Flash opener “Legends of Today,” as outlined by our new Hawkman.
Though the landscape for DC Comics video games has been predominantly Batman-centric, particularly as of late, that doesn't mean the publisher isn't working in tandem with Warner Brother's other divisions to bring its comic properties to the interactive market. The Batman: Arkham series has been such a rousing success though, it's no wonder the efforts of WB Interactive have been solely focused on the Dark Knight. That all might change in the coming months and year.
According to new job postings listed by WB Montreal (via GamesRadar), the developer currently has two new DC Comics video games in development, and they might need your help in getting them made. Provided you're a senior animator, program developer or have the necessary skills and resume in the other applicable openings. Still, that the DC gaming universe is expanding is good news. Now we can rampantly speculate about what's to come from the developer behind Batman: Arkham Origins and Batman: Arkham Knight's Batgirl DLC.

It doesn't seem possible that consumer-friendly virtual reality is on the verge of breaking through the shackles of science fiction and into the real world, but we're entering into a brave new world of immersive interactivity with the release of Oculus Rift, Samsung Gear and even Google Cardboard. While each of those VR platforms has its own strengths and weaknesses, that there are multiple manufacturers vying for your attention in the same space (with more like PlayStation VR, SteamVR and StarVR still to come) speaks volumes about how viable virtual reality has become in the last few years.
Aside from the potential gaming aspects, virtual reality presents some interesting opportunities for narrative immersion as well. We've already seen Star Wars take advantage of that a bit with its recent Jakku tour, but the landscape is wide open for the likes of movies and animation to give fans and viewers an even closer look at the worlds being created on screen. Such is the case with the upcoming Ghost in the Shell VR short, Ghost in the Shell Virtual Reality Diver. Set in the world of Ghost in the Shell: Arise, the short will be an on-rails experience that lets you tag along with Major Kusanagi through some select scenes curated for VR.
