Netflix Surprise Releases Cloverfield Paradox During Super Bowl

Two years ago, the trailer released for 10 Cloverfield Lane, the long-awaited sequel to Cloverfield, came with a surprise trailer and a shockingly fast release date being released only 2 months after its trailer dropped.

Well tonight, the franchise upped the ante even further because during the Super Bowl, it was revealed that the next installment in the Cloverfield franchise was being released immediately following the game on Netflix. To be fair, this is Netflix we’re talking about, so they can release anything at anytime, but still it’s shocking how movies are released these days.

Cloverfield Paradox is available now through streaming on Netflix.

We say, big deal: we want cool, futuristic-looking digital watches with tons of advanced features! For a time, there was a slight shift away from digital watches, but they recently made a roaring comeback with the invention of smartwatches. However, smartwatches wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t for the success of several companies in the 80s and 90s. So, here are some important names related to digital watches.

Lexip Gaming Mouse Comes With Two Joysticks

It’s time to take your gaming mouse to the next level, and what better way to do so than to add joysticks onto your mouse. And not just one joystick, but two. That’ll show them at the AV Club.

This is the Lexip Gaming Mouse, a standard looking wireless gaming mouse with two joysticks. Well, kind of. Along with plenty of side mounted buttons, it has a traditional controller joystick on the side and a second analog joystick used by gyrating the top half of the mouse.

The idea behind the additional 2-axis joysticks is that it gives better control for game that would normally only play with flight sticks, like flight simulators. But the mouse seems customizable enough that you could use it to provide traditional control for racing games, first-person shooters and MMO’s.

Available on Kickstarter for a $99 Pledge.

Hasbro Releasing Special ‘Cheaters’ Version of Monopoly That I Would So Cheat At

Monopoly gets special editions for everything. Star Wars Monopoly, Sunmaid Raisins Monopoly, Bass Fishing Monopoly, I think I’ve even seen a Tide Pod Challenge Monopoly, but now they’re really pushing the envelope with a version that embraces the act of cheating (sort of).

The special Cheaters Edition of Monopoly comes with special rules that which are a cheaters paradise. One addition is 15 Cheat Cards with instructions to carry out risky tasks; you gain a reward if you’re successful and you have to hand over money, or be handcuffed to the board game, if you get caught.

Sounds like fun, but let’s be real here, I’d still cheat. I’d still stuff mountains of cash in my pocket when no one is looking, and trust me, no one is looking. I’m an expert of Monopoly Larceny. Hell, I’d steal the 15 cheat cards too, just for the fun of it.

Still sound like a fun way to switch up the most iconic and frustrating board game known to mankind. Monopoly Cheaters Edition will be available for $20 and will release in the fall.

Mario Kart Is The Next Nintendo Game Coming To A Smartphone Near You

It seems Mario Kart will be the latest Nintendo IP to get the smartphone treatment. It’s been a long time coming, but it finally seems like Nintendo will be embracing the smartphone app store, even if it is at a painfully slow rate.

Mario Kart Tour will follow in the wake of the super successful Super Mario Run and, let’s be honest, will sell a bajillion copies. I mean. Who wouldn’t want to take Mario Kart with them on their phone?

The only idea we get of a release date is that it’s set to launch sometime within Nintendo’s next fiscal year, which is anytime between  April 2018 and March 2019. So place your bets on when Nintendo wants to startup the money printing machine again.
