Orange is the New Black

The Netflix mode of launching entire periods at the same time is all the rage, and as a unrepentant binge-viewer, count me among the grateful. However it’s worth keeping that in mind before July, when Orange is the New Black debuted, the company’s remarkable output was spotty at finest. There was the forgettable Lilyhammer, the inadequately received Hemlock Grove, and the compelling-but-ultimately-just-a-guilty-pleasure political thriller Residence of Cards.

Mad Men

Period Six of Mad Men turned out to be its weirdest yet, prompting fans to go crazy on the Net and spout out Lost-esque conspiracy concepts about Megan passing away, brand-new accounts guy Bob Benson secretly being a spy, a cop or– my personal favorite– Peggy and Pete’s time-traveling illegitimate kid.

Parks & Recreation

While its big sibling The Office always struggled with repetition, Parks and Entertainment always strives ahead to check out originalities even when they’re challenging for the program’s format to sustain. 2013 featured Parks’ most significant moment ever, Leslie and Ben’s wedding event, not to mention numerous new stories focused around

Breaking Bad

The American tv audience in 2013 looks like a lot of other facets of our national life in the sense that there’s a crucial, relatively unbreachable dichotomy. Call it Network vs. Cable, Dumb vs. Smart, CSI vs. Mad Men … whatever the case, there’s a sense that you can be specified by the sort of show you view. What made Breaking Bad so unique, then, was that it became an American Television Event that quickly transcended this divide. Each Sunday night, particularly as the final period drew to a close, the jarring opening theme was a clarion call for viewers throughout the nation, on the coastlines and in the locations between. The floating green blocks with their atomic symbols sent us scurrying excitedly to Facebook and twitter searching for like minds.

Robert De Niro talks about his gay father

Behind Robert De Niro’s hard, on-screen outside lies a tender side.
In a meeting, the 70-year-old star has actually opened about his late, openly gay papa for the June/July concern of Out publication.
He shed tears as he spoke about the intimate portrait he has developed of his dad, in a new documentary, called Bearing in mind the Artist: Robert De Niro, Sr

. When asked about how he feels about sharing the very same name with his daddy, De Niro took off his glasses and began to cry.

Justin Bieber at centre of racist storm

Pop star Justin Bieber is at the center of another scandal after footage presumably revealing him making a racist joke was leaked.
The clip, gotten by editors at Britain’s The Sun on Sunday paper, is stated to have been shot throughout the manufacturing of his 2011 documentary Never Say Never.
In the short video, Bieber appears to ask pals, “Why are black people scared of chainsaws?”

Daylight

Like Amnesia: The Dark Descent, Daylight is a first-person survival-horror game you play without access to weapons, checking out an obviously haunted healthcare facility while relying solely on the protagonist’s in-game phone. The twist: the levels are procedurally created, possibly adding a replay angle.

The Elder Scrolls Online

The Senior citizen Scrolls lastly takes a run at what it’s most likely been marching toward all along: an impressive, deeply Dungeons & Dragons-indebted high fantasy MMO covered around its sprawling narrative history and IP. Try to find PS4 and Xbox One versions to follow at some point this summertime.

Ragnarok Odyssey ACE

If you have actually constantly believed Monster Hunter can do with a bit more Odin, Thor and Loki, Ragnarok Odyssey ACE could be the action-roleplaying video game you have actually been looking for. It’s a spruced up version of PS3-exclusive Ragnarok Odyssey, launched in October 2012, but for both PS3 and PS Vita and packing all the original’s DLC, plus a slew of tweaks and new music by Final Fantasy legend Nobuo Uematsu.

Age of Wonders III

A turn-based fantasy strategy video game for PCs in 2014? A follow up to one of the best fantasy technique series ever devised? By the original series designer, started in 1997 and still undamaged some 17 years later on? Gorgeous-looking 3D maps? A multiple-sides playable project? A random map-generator? Up to 8-player online multiplayer? Can I get a hallelujah?
