TIE Fighter, was released earlier this week and "broke the internet", well at least for hardcore Star Wars fans.  In three days the short received over 2.5 million views.  The 7 minute Y-Wing blasting extravaganza was animated by one man, Paul Johnson.  He has told sources that this short took him 4 years to complete!

   Rime Exclusive Play Station 4 Title

After looking at the trailer of Rime, it is extremely surprising that Microsoft failed to retain it as XBOX One Exclusive Title. Rime has gorgeous gameplay, it consists of Cel-Painted look and beautiful lighting.

I think it's really sad;  Microsoft missed the opportunity unlike Sony which grabbed it right away. Rime is developed by Tequila Works for the Play Station 4 as a exclusive title.

The release date of Rime hasn't been announced yet but the gameplay is quite promising. The Cel-Painted look is the highlight of Rime. I was quiet impressed with the visual style of it, it's refreshing.

Rime is a third person, adventure and puzzle game. The story of game revolves around a boy who has to escape the island and a curse. Instead of narrative voice for the story, you will learn the story as the game progresses.

As from the gameplay trailer, it's obvious that besides appealing visual style, there is much more exciting underlying level design that will help Rime stand out.

The French team at Caribara Animation recently posted a teaser of their rebooted series of the popular manga/anime Astro Boy. The show is being created in collaboration with Shibuya Productions and Tezuka Productions, so your fears of it being a disgrace (though silly to begin with) can be put to rest. Astro Boy Reboot will feature a new storyline in addition to new characters, and will span twenty-six episodes.
