Redbox app hitting PS3 with dumb curated playlists

Redbox is launching a PS3 app. It's called Redbox Instant by Verizon, which I don't really want to call it. $8 a month gives you access to Redbox's streaming selection and "four DVD rental nights at the Redbox kiosk, every month." You can also purchase or rent new digital releases without a subscription, which is likely the only thing I would ever consider using this for.

Exclusive to the PS3 app is "The Playlist," a curated set of movies "built specifically with the PlayStation gamer in mind." It will "feature themes like 'Stuff Blowing Up,' 'Movies With Balls,' and 'Beards On Film.'"

I am groaning audibly. Is this what you think of me, Redbox Instant by Verizon? That I'm going to appreciate thumbing through a section called, 'Movies With Balls,' or buy into this weird beard fetishization that's becoming more insufferable than the internet yammering on about bacon? Oh, so hip of you! Please stop.

Why is Ryu a wolf in the upcoming Ultra Street Fighter IV DLC?

The Misfits have a song called Demonmania (pronounced Deh-EE-Mono-Mee-Ah). In the song, Glenn Danzig clearly sings the words "Look upon me, I am a bee... My mother was a wolf... My father was a wolf." That's what it sounds li...more

Catch a jaunty tune (and an elbow to the grill) in this Tales from the Borderlands trailer

Telltale titles and Borderlands are almost polar opposites. One has you constantly making tough, game-altering decisions. The other only asks that you decide between shooting everything and dying. (Hint: you defini...more
