Xbox One/PC Game Below Delayed Again

Xbox One/PC Game Below Delayed Again

Capy Games’ Below, which was last set to release this summer, has been delayed once again without a new release window or date announced, the developer revealed today. The studio said in the new blog post that it is “not quite done excavating depths, or polishing all of its facets,” and has decided to take more time to ensure the game “lives up to our studio’s standards, and the quality that you expect from our games.” Capy did not offer a new release date, however, and is instead “going dark while we take the time that we need to complete Below without compromise.” The developer will only be giving the next update on the game when it “has a firm release date,” which Capy will share at that time.

Spider-Man: Zendaya May Play This Familiar Character

Spider-Man: Zendaya May Play This Familiar Character

While it was previously announced that Disney Channel star Zendaya will play a character named Michelle in Spider-Man: Homecoming, the actress may actually be starring as a key character from the comics that fans will no doubt recognize. Warning: Possibile spoilers for Spider-Man: Homecoming to follow. Two sources “with knowledge of the project” have told TheWrap that Zendaya will play Mary Jane Watson. Sony declined to comment to IGN on the outlet’s report, so bear that in mind as the studio has yet to make an official announcement. Continue reading…

Grow Up Review

Grow Up Review

“Grow Up” sounds like a mean-spirited command growled at someone enjoying some childlike fun. But it also speaks to how Ubisoft approached this sequel to last year’s Grow Home. Its intentionally clumsy climbing and collection gameplay ideas feel more mature and well-considered here, while at the same time it celebrates the freedom to move about and explore by giving us a big chunk of a literal world. As a sequel, Grow Up fails only to meaningfully expand on the original’s concepts to the point where they renewed the touch of childlike wonder that came from discovering them. The four to six hours of gameplay that follow your spaceship’s crash landing on a plant-rich world follow a familiar pattern, enriched by several smart additions. In fact, Grow Up usually assumes you’ve played the previous game (and you should), as it offers only the slightest introductory help when the adorably ragdolly robot protagonist B.U.D. first finds a star plant. Much like Jack’s beanstalk, these twisting lifeforms stretch ever upward toward the sky as B.U.D. steers their shoots toward nutrients glowing in nearby glowing rocks.There are four now, all carefully positioned to aim toward fragments of B.U.D.’s ship, and as with Grow Home, much of Grow Up’s fun comes from making careful ascents up their sides while avoiding the ever-present risk of falling back down miles below.

Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy 15 Review

Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy 15 Review

Final Fantasy may be one of the most successful gaming franchises in history, but it hasn’t had much luck as a film series. Both Advent Children and Spirits Within failed to resonate with audiences despite Square Enix spending millions on cutting edge visuals and big Hollywood names. Blame it on convoluted stories that alienated the audience from whatever message was supposed to be conveyed.  Fast forward to 2016, when you’d think the studio would do things differently by making their latest film Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy XV cohesive. Alas, it too ends up being a beautiful head scratcher that never quite connects during its nearly two hour runtime. Continue reading…

Ben-Hur Review

Ben-Hur Review

Director Timur Bekmambetov looks to combine his particular action style with a classic tale of Christian forgiveness in Ben-Hur, the latest adaptation of the 1880 novel by Lew Wallace. Of course, he’s following in some pretty big footsteps — the 1959 Charlton Heston epic in particular (also based on the book) won 11 Academy Awards, a feat achieved by only three films in history to date. Unfortunately, this new Ben-Hur is in no danger of matching that accomplishment. Sure, it’s not fair to expect such success from this new film, and besides, we all know neither box-office nor Oscars are necessarily indicative of good moviemaking. But at the same time, viewing Bekmambetov’s Ben-Hur does leave one wondering why anyone even felt the need to remake the story in the first place. The Kazakh helmer has directed some stylish films, like the Russian fantasy-thriller Night Watch and his Hollywood debut, Wanted. But his flair for visuals and action doesn’t mesh terribly well with this particular story. Continue reading…

Uber Introducing Its First Self-Driving Cars in Pittsburgh

Uber Introducing Its First Self-Driving Cars in Pittsburgh

Later this month, Uber will make self-driving cars available to summon via their transportation service in Pittsburgh only. The new initiative makes Uber the first company to put driverless cars on the road for the public to use. According to Bloomberg, the driverless vehicles offered by Uber are modified Volvo XC90 sport-utility cars. They will be accompanied by human supervisors for now. By the end of the year, Uber plans to have 100 of these specially modified Volvos on the road as part of its transportation service, and Uber is looking to partner with other automakers as well. Uber reportedly has no intention of producing its own vehicles as part of the initative, according to Uber CEO and co-founder Travis Kalanick. Continue reading…
