The IGN community is huge. It’s massive. Your participation and your comments are critical to making IGN the place it is today, so we’re investing in comments and community at a time when other sites are abandoning comments all together. Often the conversations you have around the story are as interesting and informative as the story itself, and we thank you for that!
We’ve long wanted to do more with our commenting community, but we’ve been limited because we’ve had little control over the platform. Live chats between readers and editors, custom badges to show your interests and status in the community, featured comments in articles in the same manner we embed Tweets or Instagram photos… we’ve wanted to bring all these features and more to you, but have been unable to due to the limitations of our current system.
Some new photos have been revealed from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, featuring not just the title characters (as played by Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill) but also Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman (and her alter ego Diana Prince!).

This year’s “S-upgrade” to the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus should introduce “the biggest camera jump ever,” as Apple pundit John Gruber claimed on his Daring Fireball blog. Numerous rumors have pointed to a resolution upgrade in the form of a twelve-megapixel camera on the back.
Thursday, an unconfirmed internal document that surfaced on Chinese microblogging website Weibo suggested that the back-facing camera of the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus will also capture video in 4K resolution…. Read the rest of this post here
At this point, Mortal Kombat X has established itself as a fundamentally solid comic with lackluster execution. When the series takes the time to narrow its focus and remain fixated on one group of characters, the results are enjoyable. But too often it gets caught up in the ever more complex web of conspiracies and betrayals linking the MK cast. Issue #8 falls victim to that familiar trap at times, but also rises above more often than not.
The first chapter in this issue is easily the weakest, as Shawk Kittelsen’s script clumsily bounces between the Johnny Cage/Sonya Blade thread, the Scorpion thread, the Raiden threads, and various other running conflicts. The scripting improves in the second chapter, however, as Kittelsen focuses largely on fleshing out the rise and fall of the Johnny/Sonya romance in the years after Mortal Kombat 9. These scenes are far too brief. but still vital in exploring a softer side to both characters. This chapter also gives the book a bit of the humor that it too often lacks.
Marvel wraps up its first short-form Star Wars project as Mark Waid and Terry Dodson’s Princess Leia draws to a close. This series hit some rough patches as it traced Leia’s desperate struggle to unite her divided people. Luckily, the book mostly regains its footing in time for the finale. The divided focus of issue #4 makes way for a more unified climax.
Waid doesn’t waste much time resolving the cliffhanger from issue #4, as Leia finds herself back in Imperial custody. Why bother when her escape and return to the rebellion is a foregone conclusion? Instead, the real drama in this finale comes as the rest of the surviving Alderaanians are placed in mortal danger. Here there’s no road map for how the series should end, and Waid exploits that sense of danger and tension to great effect as Leia rallies her people for one final stand against the Empire. I would have liked to see a bit more page space devoted to the actual space battle, but the end victory still feels satisfying.
