The Division Beta Sign-ups Now Open

Ubisoft is now taking beta sign-ups for Tom Clancy’s The Division.

Those who have a code can redeem it right here and secure access to beta when it eventually goes live. If you don’t have a code, you can pre-order the game to get guaranteed access, or you can join the waitlist for a chance to get in on the action.

The beta is coming first to Xbox One this winter, ahead of its launch on March 8, 2016.

We got to go hands-on with the game earlier this month at E3. You can check our our hands-on impressions right here. Additionally, developer Massive Entertainment confirmed at the expo that its previously-announced mobile companion app has been canceled.

That Time I *Didn’t* Meet Batman

I remember a long, long time ago, I found out my hero was coming to town. Batman! This was the Adam West variation, of course, long after original episodes of the 1960s show had gone off the air. But I guess West and his Robin, Burt Ward, still did tours back in those halcyon days of syndication, bringing the batmobile to car shows and malls and such. In full costume, no less!

I was so psyched to get to meet Batman and to see the batmobile in person (the TV show version remains to this day one of my favorite pieces of tech ever). And mind you, I didn’t really think of Batman as Adam West back then. This was the Caped Crusader I was meeting!

Only, I didn’t. When my family got to the car show, or whatever it was — who can really remember at this point? — where West and Ward were supposed to greet the fans, we were told that Batman couldn’t make it because he was “out getting the batmobile washed.” (Yeah, the car wasn’t there either.) Crushing disappointment. This was not the Dynamic Duo’s finest hour.

The Fast & Furious ride opened this week at Universal Studios Hollywood with a big event befitting a franchise that’s become this huge.
