What's New To Amazon Prime Video For July 2019: Movies, Originals, And TV Shows (US)
It's the midway point in June, but already, streaming services like Hulu, Netflix, and Amazon Prime Video have been revealing what what's coming out in July on their services. In the upcoming month, Amazon has plenty of content coming next month, including various original series. However, unlike Hulu and Netflix which drop the majority of their content on the first of the month, Amazon's big release date is the 31st of July.
Starting at the beginning of the month, Amazon will be releasing some new content. The 2019 Andrew Garfield drama Under The Silver Lake comes on July 1. The movie follows a man who meets a mysterious woman. The next day, she disappears, and he searches LA to find her, only to learn there is a bizarre conspiracy surrounding her.
If you're looking for something a bit more high-profile, the 2019 reboot of Hellboy comes to the service on July 23. While it wasn't critically acclaimed, it will be there for you to check out if you're interested. In GameSpot's review, Dan Auty said, "[David] Harbour remains a great choice to play the character, and it will be a shame if this is the last time we see him in the role. But ultimately this is not the Hellboy movie fans wanted to see him in."
Amazon's most anticipated release in July is Season 1 of The Boys. The series debuts on July 26, and the show follows a world where superheroes are in power and celebrities. A group of vigilantes is on the move to stop some of these corrupt heroes and put a stop to them. As you can see in the trailer above--or in the comic book series--The Boys does not pull its punches. It's violent, shocking, and is not intended for younger viewers.
The end of the month is when most of the month's content is released. On July 31, there will be plenty to watch: Dumb and Dumber, Twelve Monkeys, and a bunch of Star Trek movies hit the service. However, the movie that you need to watch is the 1995 movie Hackers. In this cinematic rave of colors and annoying EDM, a group of computer hackers find a virus that steals money from a corporation, but the hacker behind that virus is framing them, so they need to clear their name by hacking computers in the most unrealistic way possible. Hack the planet, right?
Below, you'll find the complete list for everything coming to Amazon Prime Video in the month of July.
New To Amazon In July
Under the Silver Lake (2019)
Peterloo (Amazon Original movie)
Kung Fu Panda: The Paws of Destiny S1B - Amazon Original series
Help, Im Alive - Dying Light 2 Makes Choice Matter | COGconnected
06.20.2019 11:00:09 COGconnected: Weve all heard the phrase a million times. Your choices matter. What if I told you that I suspect Dying Light 2 may actually fulfill that promise? I know, it sounds absurd. But maybe, just maybe, Techlands parkour and melee series can end the eye rolling.
PC Gaming Race Glorious Model O Gaming Mouse Review
eSports mice are a special breed. Optimized for performance, they generally place speed, weight, and accuracy above all else, even at the expense of ergonomics, extra buttons, or in the case of PC Gaming Race’s Glorious Model O, a chassis that fully covers all its parts.
That’s not a dig, even if it kind of sounds like one. The Glorious Model O (See it at Amazon)makes good on the promise of the simple eSports mouse – It’s incredibly light and performs well in all kinds of games – and does so while offering a cool aesthetic touch with it’s “honeycomb” shell, which has small holes all over the top and bottom of the chassis. There's even a little gamer flare with some RGB lighting.
One Of My Favorite Games Has Been Removed From Steam And I Am Sad
Alpha Protocol, one of my favorite games, has been removed from Steam and other PC storefronts and is therefore unavailable to purchase.
It was initially believed Sega's rights to publish the game had expired. However, the company clarified to GameSpot that this is incorrect; it still owns the Alpha Protocol brand and intellectual property--just not some of the music within the game.
A Sega spokesperson told GameSpot: "Due to the expiry of music rights in Alpha Protocol, the title has been removed from Steam and is no longer on sale."
Alpha Protocol is also unavailable to purchase on the PlayStation, Xbox, and Humble stores, though Sega has assured fans that existing owners of the game (on any platform) will still be able to redownload it in the future.
Alpha Protocol was released for PC, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360 in 2010. Although it received a mixed critical reception at the time, it went on to gain a cult following thanks to its deep RPG mechanics and glamorous spy fiction. I once called it the best James Bond game ever, despite 007 not actually being in it.

Once we get wind of new The Division 2 updates and upcoming content, we’ll let our readers know.
Baldur's Gate 3 will not be Divinity: Original Sin 3 by another name
06.20.2019 00:00:10 From VG247: "Its a staple of the RPG genre that you dont start in a position of strength instead beginning as a lowly cowherd or vault dweller and letting the blows of adventure shape you into a deadly weapon, as if beneath the hammer in a forge.
So it was that when Baldurs Gate came out in 1997, Larian Studios wasnt a household name in the genre. It was an unknown Belgian developer working on an RPG doomed to cancellation The Lady, the Mage and the Knight. Meanwhile, Bioware was making its name with an RPG that combined the high fantasy freedom of Dungeons & Dragons with the immediacy of real-time strategy."
06.19.2019 21:00:11 Valve's taken aim at MangaGamer once again and it's The Expression: Amrilato that's caught in the crossfire. What could Valve have against an all-ages yuri visual novel about learning to communicate? And why do they keep targeting MangaGamer?
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Hits Top Spot in Most Pre-Ordered GameStop Title During E3 Week
While we didn’t see any new gameplay footage of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare at this year’s E3 (which is a first), that hasn’t stopped Infinity Ward’s upcoming shooter to snag enough interest to make it the most pre-ordered title at GameStop during E3 week.
While no actual Modern Warfare pre-order numbers were mentioned, GameStop revealed the top 10 games based on “customer demand,” which you can check out below.
The following top 10 videogames were revealed or confirmed during E3 and are listed in pre-order ranking from GameStop’s database:
Call of Duty Modern Warfare (10-25-19)
Pokemon Sword/Shield (11-15-19)
Final Fantasy VII Remake (3-3-20)
Cyberpunk 2077 (4-16-20)
Borderlands 3 (9-13-19)
Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening (Switch) (9-20-19)
Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order (11-15-19)
Gears 5 (9-6-19)
Super Mario Maker 2 (6-28-19)
Crash Team Racing: Nitro-Fueled (6-21-19)
Given how highly anticipated games like Cyberpunk 2077 and Final Fantasy 7 Remake are in that list, that’s one impressive feat by Modern Warfare, no? Let’s hope we get multiplayer gameplay soon since it’ll be out in a few months’ time.
The digital dustpunk card game Nowhere Prophet is coming to Steam on July 19th
06.19.2019 19:00:09 "Nowhere Prophet", the Indian-infused digital dustpunk card game from publishing label No More Robots and development team Sharkbomb Studios, is finally coming to Steam on July 19th.
TKC servers are well run and every attempt is made to ensure a fun gaming environment. No racist or rude behavior is tolerated on any of our servers. TKC tries to have round the clock administration for it's servers but obviously sometimes a server will have no admin playing so if you witness any abuse for any game please attempt to report the offending players nickname, and if possible GUID here: "Server Vistors Complaint". Just give as many details as you can remember such as what the player was doing/saying. In addition cheating is not tolerated on our servers. We are protected by any of a number of different cheat tools at any given time including; VAC, steambans.com, pbbans.com, ggc-stream.com, metabans, pbscreens.com and punkbuster, depending on the game. If caught cheating your information will be submitted to the appropriate cheat tracker and you will be added to their database which will ban your Steam ID, PB GUID or EA GUID depending on the game and website.
When available we also offer ways for players, in-game, to contact admins to report bad behavior. These come in the form of game server plugins. Players will, if the server has the option available, have the option to report a player using, @report [player] [reason] or @admin [reason] to call an admin to the server. If an admin doesn't respond in a timely manner, please use the @report option so we can follow up on it later or use "Server Vistors Complaint" as mentioned above. If an admin is not available, we also try to give the players the opportunity to use @votekick [player] or @voteban [player] [reason]. This allows the guests to our server the ability to kick or temporarily ban a player who is breaking rules.
Profanity - Many of the games we play have very bad language, some don't, that should make a difference in how we enforce our rules. For that reason we are going to implement a new rule, which will seem strange at first, but there is reason behind it. Bad language will only be tolerated on Teamspeak channels for games where there is bad language in the game. In other words, since there is bad language in Bad Company 2, bad language will be acceptable in the Bad Company 2 Teamspeak channel and on the Bad Company 2 servers. On our Half-Life 2 DM Teamspeak channel and game server, bad language will not be allowed. Future games will also be handled in this manner. The reason, we do not want to exclude members with different beliefs. If I buy a game and one of the selling points for me was the fact that it did not have bad language, that should be respected. I do not want a father or grandfather having to explain bad language to their children or grandchildren because they heard profanity on a TKC Teamspeak channel they thought was free of such things.
How to deal with with Mic/Text spammers - No one wants to listen to a lot of unrelated chatter either on the game server, or Teamspeak. No one wants to see a lot of text spamming either. It's distracting to some, and in the case of Bad Company 2, causes lag problems when the text log gets too long. If someone is talking or typing too much, respectfully ask them to stop. If they continue, you may have to mute or kick them, and if they continue after that, a ban might be in order. When on Teamspeak, a certain amount of "visiting" is fine, but the gamers who want to communicate tactical information to others playing shouldn't have to constantly interrupt talk about the latest CPU, or talk of what's going on at school. If someone is talking too much and you don't feel like you want to address it, PM a clan leader and we can handle the situation.
Team Switching - In some games this is a big no-no and if you are admin for one of those games, ask the player to go back, if they don't and you have the ability, move them back manually. If you continue to have problems, kick/ban them. In other games, like Bad Company 2, team switching usually isn't as big a deal. Sometimes friends or clan members might want to play together, in that case, try to facilitate them and swap some people around. This will show you to be respectful of community and they will probably be very appreciative of your efforts. If there is a mass exodus of people from a bad team to a good team, you can mention in-game that people need to stop. If someone is ignoring you and continues to unbalance the teams, just kick them off the server. For a game like Half-Life 2, teams change after each round, so trying to put clan members together is just a waste of time, that is why team switching is considered bad.
Hacking/Cheating - This is the most overused excuse for kicking someone off of a server. Players are unjustly booted off servers all the time simply because they were too good. That is not fair. Do not base a decision on cheating on a single round, if it isn't really ridiculous score-wise, sometimes people just have great rounds. But if they continue to have an unbelievable K/D ratio, then you might need to ban them. Sometimes it might be necessary to ban someone just because they are killing the server. For me, this is the thing I hate to do the most. That person might be doing nothing wrong, other than being really good at a game. Try to put yourself in their shoes and only ban guys who are really obvious. I don't want to see anyone being banned for an aimbot because they went 29-0. I and many others have had a better score than that, it DOES happen. You have to consider how the person is playing the game. Are they playing as recon? Are they in the heli with a really good pilot? Sometimes, if you are unsure, it might be best to ask the opinion of a clan leader. Remember, visitors to our servers have the ability and a forum to complain about unjust behavior from our server admins. If someone complains about you, you want to know that you did everything by the book.
Soldier Names/Nicknames - We will not allow names that are offensive to anyone. I think we can all use our best judgement here, but if you are unsure, ask another admin what they think of the name and come to a consensus before taking action. Players using racist names should be perm banned immediately. It does no good talking to someone like that because they're only goal is to cause trouble.
Banter and Trash Talking - Now its okay to joke around, but if several players are going at it constantly on the mic or in chat just nicely ask them to stop. If it continues warn them again that if they don't stop they will be kicked, if for no other reason that mic/text spamming. If they ignore this warning then go ahead and kick them. A certain amount of this is fine as long as it's good natured, however sometimes this can lead to hard feelings so you have to use your best judgement of when something is going too far or things are starting to get out of hand.
Racist/intolerant behavior - This is a subject that we will show no mercy on. If someone is being a racist, and that means they are hating on blacks, whites, browns, yellows, whatever the case may be, they get perm banned. No warnings, no kicks, just ban them. We don't need that kind of intolerant behavior on our servers. I don't care if the person is joking, I don't care what his real intent was, if he's spewing hate speech, he's gone. This also applies to someone who is spewing hate speech against a group of people, like Muslims, Christians, agnostics, atheists whoever. We are a gaming clan. This is our hobby and it's supposed to be fun. Everyone who comes to a TKC server should be respected and able to play the game hassle free. Not everyone believes the same, and if someone can't get over it and comes to our server with an agenda that includes racist or intolerant speech, I expect you guys to bring the hammer down swiftly.
Metabans - We will use Metabans only for cheaters and will verify each ban using Cheat-O-Meter. This will ensure that we are not forcing our Metabans followers into banning players we have banned for breaking rules other than cheating. If we deem you are cheating and Cheat-O-Meter doesn't really indicate cheating and we can not find information about you or your clan tag, meaning there is no website or previous information on you as a player or clan that we can cross reference, we will ban you on our servers, but not Metabans. Clans must have a website that we can find and access to be considered legit, otherwise we will view your tags as hogwash and your suspect behavior will be deemed as cheating. Again, we will not add a ban that is not supported by Cheat-O-Meter to Metabans.
We want everyone to have the best time possible so do your best to maintain a good gaming atmosphere, then everyone can have a good time.
To join TKC you only have to read our "Code of Conduct" and then apply for membership by filling out an online application. After submitting your application you will become a "member candidate". You will be allowed to wear our tags but only as (tkc), all letters in lowercase. As you progress, as seen by our members, you will be advanced to (Tkc), then (TKc) and then finally (TKC). You will receive emails at each step with detailed instructions on what you need to do. To obtain your full membership and the right to wear the (TKC) tags, you will have to pass a vote by the TKC members. Only those members who have gotten to know you will vote. An 80% yes vote will be required for full admission. Please keep in mind that full membership takes 8 weeks.
For you to be accepted you will need to display good manners, sportsmanship, and the ability to follow our rules. This applies to all game server activitiy and forum participation. If you do not feel you can meet our requirements we respectfully ask that you not apply as we have many who want to join and we can not waste time on gamers who are not serious about membership.
So now you're a member of TKC congrats! It is important for you to note that membership in TKC is not a lifetime privilege. Only the clan founders Big Flem and Squidward have lifetime membership and can not be removed. Clan leaders expect it's members to participate in clan activites when they can, and to be an ACTIVE member in the clan. We consider active members to be members who regularly post on the forums, participate in clan activities when possible, and communicates and develops friendships inside the clan. We do NOT consider a member to be active if they only ever play on our servers and nothing more. The leaders of this clan work hard to organize events and if you can't support these activities, can't check and post on the forums at least once or twice a week, then you are not TKC material and eventually you will be kicked from the clan. If you do not think you can meet these requirements as a member of TKC, then please don't attempt to gain entry into the clan as you will only waste your time, and ours.
Beyond administration positions such as "Clan Leader", "Division Leader", etc, the answer is no. However we do have achievable military style ribbons and medals that can be won for various acts. You may see each members ribbon and medal "Display Case" by going to the "Members" tab and under each members profile clicking the "Awards" icon. Below is each award and how you obtain that award. Note that medals also have an associative ribbon:
Ribbons(Hover over information icon for description)
In the past TKC had too many admins on our servers and things got a little out of hand. We are not looking for any new admins, however if we feel you will make a good addition to that team we will ask you. Being a server admin is not fun and games. It requires you to WORK, and follow server administrator rules which are well defined once you become an admin. Our admins are forced to stop playing whatever game they might be playing, and work to secure and maintain server tranquility reguarly. If you are an admin that does not mean you will get to run willy nilly and ban, kick, and torture at will. Admins who do not follow our rules will be stripped of admin duties and power. In addition there are more requirements of admins such as, reguarly checking our server admins forum. Once you become an admin you will be given access to this forum and you must check and read it quite often. It is a way for admins to help one another by posting their thoughts on what is going on, who to watch closely, etc. Do not ask us constantly to be an admin, that is the surest way I know to never become an admin. Our leaders will identify the best candidates for admin duties if we think it necessary.
No. In order to have an official TKC server it must meet certain standards. In addition, we might not want a server for a particular game, and if you aren't an admin, then you shouldn't have admin authority on any server. Official TKC servers have to be setup as close to identical as possible. This means that the clan leaders must have all access to any of it's servers including the ability to restart that server, gain access via FTP and game panel. It means that the clan leaders can setup the server with it's normal settings and add the usual addons. In short, if you want to have your own server then that is fine, but don't try to name it "Boom Boom Room" or tie it in any way to TKC.
Clan TKC maintains several servers that are open to it's clan members and the public. In addition TKC has other expenses that require money. To pay the bills TKC relies on it's members and visitors to donate. Without these donations, TKC will cease to exist. Please consider donating money when you can. We do our best to use the money wisely, to invest in TKC, to invest in PC gaming.
