Season four of Girls was a well spun set of tales that intertwined, jumbled like Christmas lights out of a box and then untangled perfectly by the end of the season. The amount of intelligence that must have gone into each show really makes this season special. Come for the writing, stay for the acting and go away feeling like you've learned a lot about a group of friends.

Star Conflict gets interplanetary update for PC and VR
Official details below.
(MOSCOW, RUSSIAN FEDERATION) -- April 23, 2015 -- StarGem Inc. and Gaijin Entertainment’s epic free-to-play MMO action game, Star Conflict, receives a major content update today with the introduction of Dreadnoughts, a powerful trump card in the fight for dominance in the galaxy. Other exciting content additions comprise of new quests, locations, two new alien types and more. To celebrate this huge update, players can purchase all in-game shop packages at a 50% discount for the next three days.
Starting today players can engage in Dreadnought craft combat in outer space PvP battles. These goliath sized spaceships come complete with interstellar firepower in addition to their immense size and strength, providing a massive presence in tough enemy battles. Although Dreadnought battles are available solely for corporations, solo players can also join the battle as mercenaries, defending a corporation that is under attack.
Corporations can choose from three types of spaceships available: · Maelstrom - Imperial Dreadnought model equipped with strong weaponry that deals higher damage to the enemy Dreadnought. · Liberator - Federation Dreadnought that has powerful attack drones able to deal significant damage to the support fleet of the enemy Dreadnought. · Nemesis - Built by Jericho Techs, this defence spaceship has powerful shields able to withstand attacks for a longer period of time.
The construction of a Dreadnought is divided into four stages: building a shipyard, assembling the skeleton, mounting an interstellar engine and, finally, mounting the guns. All clan members must collect iridium, the primal construction element of the Dreadnought, since the building process is very costly.
“The introduction of the Dreadnought class with its sheer size and dominance creates an epic scenario for the intergalactic warfare that Star Conflict players crave”, said Stanislav Scorb, CEO of StarGem Inc. “The most powerful corporations have already started building their Dreadnoughts and are almost ready to join the battle, so wait no longer and start the construction of your Dreadnought now and take out the enemy”.
Dreadnought Order Of Battle
· Since construction is time-consuming, additional supply of iridium can speed up the process. · Even though only the leader or his deputies can initiate the building of a Dreadnought, all clan members may visit the clan’s shipyard in order to oversee the construction process. · After the building process is over, Dreadnoughts can be improved with new guns and elements to enhance their capabilities. · ‘Sector conquest’ mode now takes place in outer space, and is only available to corporations in possession of a Dreadnought. Therefore having one is crucial to dominate the galaxy. · The winner of a conquest battle will rule a sector and collect its profit until another corporation conquers it.
In addition to new Dreadnought craft, the update also includes 300 new and improved quests in Invasion mode, new locations (three of them alien, reachable by players through special portals), and two new types of aliens are introduced: Predators and Scouts. Purging enemies has also become slightly easier, with the introduction of new battle technologies. Finally, 17 PvP maps have been added to outer space and are available in both PvP and PvE modes.

Bordering on Bad Behavior heading home in May
Check out the official goods below.
LOS ANGELES — April 20, 2015 — For Immediate Release —Three rival soldiers trapped in a military base must keep from killing each other in Bordering on Bad Behavior, coming to DVD May 19 from Inception Media Group.
In this politically incorrect, dark comedy, a Lebanese soldier (Bernard Curry, The Junction Boys, The Dish, Home and Away) stumbles upon a top-secret, Israeli base where he encounters an Israeli soldier (Oz Zehavi, Infiltration) and an American CIA agent (Tom Sizemore, Black Hawk Down, Saving Private Ryan, Heat, Natural Born Killers). A scuffle ensues and, in the melee, the center’s emergency lockdown mechanism is triggered. Realizing they are trapped for six hours, the sworn enemies must figure out how to not kill each other.
Now, these three unlikely candidates are forced to evaluate their lives, their alliances and ultimately each other. As the clock ticks, they are left with two options: impending doom or a second chance at life.
Truths are told, noses are broken, ribs are cracked and guns are drawn. With time running out, will the trio settle on a peace plan and, if they do, will they ever be the same again?
A quirky, sometimes philosophical exposé on the tragedies of war …
Bordering on Bad Behavior is presented in widescreen with an aspect ratio of 16 x 9 (2.35:1) and 5.1 digital surround sound.
