Legend of Zelda: breath of the wild

SXSW Reveals the 2018 Gaming Awards Winners

Last night at SXSW, the company presented their 2018 Gaming Awards, with few surprising results.

Carpool Karaoke

Westworld Stars Evan Rachel Wood, James Marsden Do Carpool Karaoke at #SXSW

Carpool Karaoke first started as a segment on The Late Late Show with James Corden, and has since become a standalone series with some pretty fabulous guests. CBS noticed that each segment from the Late Late Show was getting massive views, and host James Corden‘s ability to get high-profile travel companions helped launch the series. It’s carried by […]

Yeah so I personally am more than a little excited for Ready Player One, as you may have gathered from the numerous pieces I’ve done covering the ramp up to tonight’s premiere at South By Southwest (SXSW), and world opening on March 29th.
