Jagex has announced that, after 17 years of operation, RuneScape Classic – the original version of its long-running fantasy MMO – will no longer be available to play on its servers from August 6th, 2018.

48 minutes ago When Brooklyn Nine-Nine returns for Season 6, the cop comedy will be on a different network and will run for roughly half its usual episode count. Those are not the only changes in store for the comedy as it transitions from Fox to NBC. Due to the shortened and delayed upcoming run, it stands to reason that Season 6 will not premiere until the midseason, meaning fans may have to wait until January for the show to return. Which means no episodes around Halloween… Season 6’s earliest…

1 hour ago Fresh on the heels of Stephen Amell‘s tease that Season 7 of Arrow would be using a new storytelling technique, it has been revealed two new characters are heading to Star City later this year. One of them sounds like he could be a tech-savvy asset, and possibly even a future member of Team Arrow. The other? Let’s just say she’s not a fan of vigilantes calling themselves heroes. That sounds like bad news for Team Arrow, which will hopefully be able to bear such a threat…
