Pokemon Sun and Moon: New Ultra Beasts Revealed

Ahead of Pokemon Sun and Moon’s release later this week, The Pokemon Company has unveiled a new trailer that showcases two new Ultra Beasts, starter-exclusive Z-Moves, and more.

Watch Dogs 2 Could Be Teasing Multiple New Ubisoft Games

Watch Dogs 2 Could Be Teasing Multiple New Ubisoft Games

If there’s one thing Ubisoft games like doing, besides having you climb radio towers, it’s putting fictional versions of Ubisoft in its games. But with Watch Dogs 2, this little meta touch seems to have Ouroboros-ed itself right back into the real world by teasing what could be two unannounced new Ubi games. A side mission, titled “Ubistolen”, sees you intercepting the phone call of an in-game Ubisoft San Francisco employee, who mentions previous leaks of Assassin’s Creed games Unity and Syndicate. But he also mentions a less familiar name: Osiris. Continue reading…

Telltale's Marvel Game Seems to be Guardians of the Galaxy

Telltale's Marvel Game Seems to be Guardians of the Galaxy

You may remember that, last year, Telltale Games and Marvel Games announced a partnership for a game with a 2017 release – then went completely silent about it. It seems that game will be based around the Guardians of the Galaxy. As spotted by ComicBookMovie, a list of in-development projects released by SAG-AFTRA – the voice actors’ union currently on strike in hopes of a better deal from video game companies – outs “Guardians of the Galaxy – The Video Game a/k/a Blue Harvest”.

Watch Dogs 2 Review in Progress

Watch Dogs 2 Review in Progress

Why is this a review in progress? Right now all of Watch Dogs 2’s “seamless multiplayer” modes, in which players can dynamically appear in each other’s games, are disabled because of major performance problems. Ubisoft is actively working to resolve them, but no firm date has been given for a fix. Until I’ve had a chance to play those modes and test them (or until two days after launch, whichever comes first) this review will remain in progress with a temporary score. By expanding on a lot of what the first game and its expansion got right and mixing action, stealth, and puzzle gameplay with handy remote-control drones, Watch Dogs 2 impresses with open mission designs with multiple ways to reach your objective and some great toys to find them with. I’m conflicted about the tone of its story and characters, but I had a great time exploring its Bay Area map. Once its serious multiplayer problems are hopefully resolved, this will be a significant improvement over Ubisoft’s first draft of its action-hacker series. Continue reading…

Dishonored 2 Final Review

Dishonored 2 Final Review

No two playthroughs are the same in Dishonored 2. Developer Arkane has doubled down on the original’s play-your-way formula with two separate sets of skills, a deep and multifaceted world, and a dizzying array of level designs that affect your approach to each new area. Whether you choose a stealthy or bloody approach, each one of your playthroughs is an addition to the wide range of stories that can be told within this wonderfully twisted universe. 15 years have gone by since the events of the original Dishonored, and the world of Empress of the Isles, Emily Kaldwin, is once again thrown into disarray when her evil aunt appears with suspicious designs on her throne. It’s a pedestrian catalyst to your most vital decision in Dishonored 2: will you play as Emily or her father and protector (and original Dishonored protagonist), Corvo Attano? Though their stories play out in much the same way, with well-crafted and low-key dialogue tailored to your character, it’s worth taking time to consider your choice, as it’s one you are stuck with for the rest of your 12 to 16-hour playthrough, depending on whether you choose high-chaos (quicker) or low (slower).

Westworld: What That Big Turn of Events Means Going Forward

Westworld: What That Big Turn of Events Means Going Forward

Warning: If you haven’t seen the November 13th Westworld episode, “Trompe L’Oeil”, you’re about to be spoiled! The November 23rd episode of Westworld ended with a huge reveal, as viewers learned that Bernard (Jeffrey Wright) was in fact one of the robotic hosts built by Robert Ford (Anthony Hopkins) – in a sequence that also had Ford order Bernard, who had no choice but to comply, to murder his ex-lover, Theresa (Sidse Babett Knudsen) as she discovered the truth. I spoke to Jeffrey Wright about this huge turn of events, when he knew the truth about his character and what it means going forward. IGN: Did they give you any heads up early on about your character or did you get this script and go, “Oh, okay!”? Continue reading…

Walking Dead Just Resolved a Long Unanswered Question

Walking Dead Just Resolved a Long Unanswered Question

Ever wonder who Judith’s father actually is? The Walking Dead finally set the record straight in Sunday’s episode, “Service.” Full spoilers for The Walking Dead continue below. It’s been a while since The Walking Dead spent much time reflecting on original main characters Shane and Lori, but Rick got introspective about his now-dead best friend and wife during the fourth episode of Season 7. They were brought up as Rick was trying to explain to Michonne his decision to bend a knee to Negan, retelling the story of how Shane and Lori hooked up way back in the events of Season 1 when they thought he was dead. The point of the story was how Rick had to come to terms with the fact Lori and Shane were intimate, and that she then got pregnant with a child who wasn’t his. His decision to raise and love Judith as his own so he could live his life is his explanation for why the Alexandrians need to accept Negan’s rule, but there’s no glossing over the fact The Walking Dead dropped the bombshell that Judith is definitely Shane’s daughter. Continue reading…

TWD: Negan's Visit Has One Key Change from the Comics

Full spoilers for The Walking Dead’s latest episode, “Service,” and for the comics continue below. Like many key episodes from The Walking Dead, Negan’s first visit to Alexandria plays out surprisingly similar in the AMC TV show compared to how it occurred in the comics. But there’s one key element from the source material that wasn’t included in this episode, which puts all of “Service” into better context. Click on the arrow to progress through the below slideshow and see how Negan’s visit to Alexandria in the TV show compares to the comics, both with its many similarities and with that one huge reveal that the show didn’t give away.
