  2. The rumor mill continues to churn for Marvel’s Shang-Chi movie as a report from That Hashtag Show claims actors Ludi Lin and Ross Butler are on the short-list of actors being considered for the role of Shang-Chi, while martial arts movie legend Donnie Yen is confirmed as being courted for an unnamed part. Here’s everything you need to know about these potential actors for Marvel's Shang-Chi, the first Asian-led MCU movie: Continue reading… View the full article
  3. E3 is the big opportunity for developers to show off a year's worth of work, but every year some of the biggest surprises are what wasn't at the show. E3 2019 was huge for some of the most anticipated games coming in 2019 and 2020, but with Sony abstaining from this year's conference we were denied the further details we've been craving since last year's reveals. But Sony's games weren't the only ones that were MIA - here, we've collected every big game we could think of that was missing from this year's lineup. Death Stranding Continue reading… View the full article
  4. Warning: Spoilers follow for Fear the Walking Dead through Season 5 episode 3, "Humbug's Gulch." Fear the Walking Dead's fifth season has gotten off to a rocky start. Not just because of the many hurdles and harrowing dangers our main characters have faced, but also on various creative levels. With the premiere, we re-joined the Fear cast as they attempted to help someone, which was their big mission statement coming out of Season 4. They had a warehouse full of supplies and a clear credo about helping stragglers and wanderers out on the road. Quickly, after a plane crash left them stranded in this new special somewhere, we'd learn that, to date, they'd helped no one. Nothing had panned out. Continue reading… View the full article

  6. If there’s anything that developer CyberConnect 2 has proven over the years with the Naruto Ultimate Ninja Storm games, as well as the wholly underrated Asura’s Wrath, it's that the studio is a master of sheer anime spectacle. Dragon Ball Z Kakarot is shaping up to be further proof of that, as evidenced by the goosebumps on my arms that I got while playing through the iconic battle of Goku and Piccolo vs Radditz, while the legendary opening song “Cha La Head Cha La” swelled in the background.

  7. Pokemon Sword and Shield, the first mainline generation of Pokemon games to be coming to the Nintendo Switch, will sadly not let you be the best like no one ever was, as not every Pokemon will be catchable in the new generation. The full Pokedex won't be available to Pokemon Sword and Shield players, according to a recent interview Famitsu conducted with producer Junichi Masuda. Instead, Sword and Shield will only allow for Pokemon to be caught that are included in the Galar region Pokedex. Masuda told Famitsu a large part of the reasoning came down to the growing number of Pokemon species. Continue reading… View the full article
  8. Update 6/17: While we already had new Borderlands 3 gameplay details from E3 2019, footage from its behind-closed-doors demo has leaked on YouTube, giving us even more new Borderlands 3 details. IGN attended the demo and saw these new details firsthand, which include more info on social aspects of the game and specifics about vault hunter Moze’s skill tree. Borderlands 3 E3 2019 Demo Details 79) When people on your friends list sell weapons in Borderlands 3, you can see and buy them from vendors in your own game, regardless of if you’ve ever played co-op with that friend.

  9. In a report that sounds like it was ripped straight from a sci-fi movie, scientists have unexpectedly discovered a massive blob under the surface of the moon. Emphasis on massive -- it’s five times the size of the 75.91-mile wide Big Island of Hawaii and would weigh roughly 4.8 quintillion pounds on Earth. According to a study published by a group of scientists in Geophysical Research Letters, the subsurface mass was discovered on the dark side of the moon 180 miles beneath the surface of its largest crater called the South Pole-Aitkin basin.

  10. Stadia, Google’s foray into the home console/streaming market, will allow users to change their names at any time they want, according to a Google spokesperson. In a report originally by PCGamesN, Google confirmed that it has adopted a naming service that will allow users to change their onscreen ID, so long as the name they want isn’t already taken by another user. Patrick Seybold, director of comms for Stadia, told PCGamesN that the process will be “relatively straightforward” (PCGamesN’s words) once Stadia launches its Pro service in November, the same time the “Founders Edition” becomes available to early buyers. The service will become available to the public at large sometime in 2020. Continue reading… View the full article
  11. At first glance you’d be forgiven for thinking Gods & Monsters, the newest open-world entry in the Ubisoft catalogue, is a sequel to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of Wild. The playful, welcoming art style, the green rolling hills with an always-inviting horizon, and the small, unimposing hero at its core all bring Nintendo’s 2017 masterpiece to mind. Indeed, when I got the chance to see a few minutes - running via Google Stadia on a Pixel phone - the gameplay heavily evoked Zelda as well. It’s clear that God & Monsters is aimed to appeal to as big and wide an audience as possible, and with that goal in mind, what better game to model yourself on than Breath of the Wild?

  13. Rockstar has announced today that they'll be publishing the soundtrack and score for Red Dead Redemption 2 later this summer. The studio said in a press release that they will be releasing two albums: one for the original soundtrack and another for the original score. The first, The Music Of Red Dead Redemption 2: Original Soundtrack, which Rockstar describes as a "collection of vocal tracks," will release on July 12th, 2019 and contain all of the original songs (not background music) written for the game.

  14. FromSoftware’s newest IP Elden Ring is in the works as a collaboration between Dark Souls director Hidetaka Miyazaki and A Song of Ice & Fire author George R.R. Martin. Miyazaki tells IGN that the narrative in Elden Ring will be similar to that of Dark Souls, which is known for its vague story and emphasis on environmental storytelling. Most of Miyazaki’s other works, including Demon’s Souls and Bloodborne share the same traits. With a fixed main character and a more concrete narrative, 2019’s Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice was one of Miyazaki’s first games to derive from that formula. The 2018 PS VR adventure Déraciné was an even bigger departure from the storytelling that FromSoftware fans have come to expect from him. Continue reading… View the full article
  15. The Sinking City has one of the most intriguing settings of any game I've played in some time. You take the role of a private investigator in the 1920s who's come to the coastal city of Oakmont, Massachusetts, where something dark and strange is afoot. Water levels are rising, flooding many of the city's streets, leaving citizens (and you) to navigate them by boat. Worse, Lovecraftian horrors are emerging from the depths and killing people on land. It's up to you to discover what's going on and try to stop it. Along the way, you'll have plenty of other murders and mysteries to solve. In my hands-on demo at E3 2019, the investigator had an appointment to meet a man at a theater. When I arrived, I found a police barricade blocking the entrance. "I'll have to find another way in," my character said to himself, because that's how video game characters give hints to players. This would turn out to be one of the more obvious nudges I encountered. For the most part, The Sinking City trusts you to figure things out for yourself. Continue reading… View the full article
  16. Warning! Full SPOILERS follow for Marvel's Jessica Jones Season 3. In Season 2 of Marvel's Jessica Jones, Trish Walker (Rachael Taylor) went through the biggest transformation of any character after her near-fatal surgery with Dr. Malus. Trish acquired cat-like reflexes, which we saw a glimpse of in the Season 2 finale, "AKA Playland." Now, in Season 3, Trish is taking the crime-fighting business pretty seriously as she edges closer to adopting the mantle of her comic-book namesake, Hellcat. In episode 2, titled "AKA You're Welcome," Trish is recognized by an onlooker for her radio host persona. And unlike Jessica, who doesn't care if people see her face, Trish needs to find a costume in order to hide her identity. Below, you can scroll through the gallery to see all the costumes Trish tries out - one of them is a classic! Continue reading… View the full article
  17. The Star Wars galaxy is home to some of the most iconic alien worlds in all of pop culture, from Tatooine to Hoth to Jakku. But there's one key Star Wars planet that might be unfamiliar to fans who only follow the movies. Mandalore has been the setting of some of the coolest Star Wars projects of the past two decades. And thanks to the upcoming Disney+ series Star Wars: The Mandalorian, Mandalore is about to become a lot more more famous. But what is Mandalore, and why does it play such a key role in the Star Wars mythos? Here's everything you need to know about the world, its culture and its most famous inhabitants. Mandalore Explained: The Basics Mandalore is home to one of the greatest warrior cultures in the Star Wars galaxy. Its distant past is only vaguely defined in Disney's current Star Wars continuity, but in the classic Legends universe, Mandalore was once aligned with the ancient Sith. Together, the Sith and Mandalorians waged a destructive war against the Jedi Order and the Old Republic. The fact that the warriors of Mandalore were able to hold their own against the Jedi tells you all you need to know about their battle prowess. Those ancient warriors set a standard that Mandalorians like Jango Fett and Boba Fett seek to uphold. Continue reading… View the full article
  18. A sequel to Breath of the Wild was announced earlier this week at the end of the E3 2019 Nintendo Direct presentation, and while there are still several things we don’t know about the title, there are quite a few interesting pieces of information we’ve uncovered about this highly anticipated game. For more from this presentation, check out our review of the E3 2019 Nintendo Direct. Breath of the Wild Sequel Reveal The Breath of the Wild sequel was announced on June 11, 2019 during the E3 2019 Nintendo Direct presentation. Its reveal trailer was the final part of the presentation, beginning with glowing green writing floating in the air. The trailer shows this writing spiraling above a source of corruption. Backwards music plays as a torch reveals hieroglyphic images on a stone wall of a man with a trident. Link is shown guiding a large beast of burden with Zelda atop, both holding torches to light their way in a dim cave. Continue reading… View the full article
  19. Men in Black: International is a spinoff from the Tommy Lee Jone and Will Smith-starring Men in Black trilogy, and though it’s set in the same universe, the connections between the movies are pretty slim now that Tessa Thompson and Chris Hemsworth star as the titular heroes in black. Below, we go into full spoiler-y details about all the ways Men in Black: International connects back to the original movies. Spoilers, obviously, lie ahead. For more on MiB, be sure to check out IGN’s review of Men in Black: International, as well as all the aliens and all the gadgets in the MiB franchise. And if you want to know if there's an after credits scene in MiB: International, we've also got you covered. Continue reading… View the full article

    Krypton's Lobo Explained

    With the strength of Superman and the attitude of Wolverine, it's little wonder that Lobo is one of the most popular characters in the DC Universe. And now this bad-a$$ space biker is due for a major popularity boost in the years ahead, as he's making his live-action debut on Syfy's Krypton, has a spin-off series in development at the network too, and he could also finally be getting his own movie. Reports emerged in 2018 that Transformers director Michael Bay had met with Warner Bros. and DC about possibly directing a Lobo movie, and had also given the studio some notes on a rewrite of the film's script. This all means now is the perfect time to brush up on all things Lobo and learn why the Main Man has earned himself such a loyal following. Continue reading… View the full article
  21. Daredevil Season 3's single-shot prison riot scene has been snubbed by the Emmys due to a technicality. The fight scene in question is the unforgettable 10-plus-minute long session that sees Charlie Cox's Matt Murdock fighting his way out of a prison while the camera rolls continuously, never cutting to a different angle. The show is not on the ballot for an Emmy nomination for Outstanding Stunt Coordination. The news of the scene's exclusion comes from the season's showrunner, Erik Oleson, who tweeted that "The TV Academy would only allow a three minute clip, so, unfortunately, that epic oner was not eligible to be shown for stunts consideration."

The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening is heading exclusively to Nintendo Switch on September 20. This is a complete remake of the Game Boy game that released back in 1993.

  24. Zelda series producer Eiji Aonuma won’t confirm or deny the potential of co-op in the sequel to Breath of the Wild, but his sly answers in interviews leave room for interpretation. In an interview directly following The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild sequel reveal in the E3 2019 Nintendo Direct, IGN’s Samuel Claiborn asked Aonuma, "I know for a long time, people have wanted to play as Zelda, and there have been some games where you get to play as Zelda a little bit. It looked like Zelda and Link were hanging out a lot together. Do you think this is going to be the game in which we get to play as Zelda, maybe as a co-op game?"

  25. In the world of video games, serious revisions aren’t all that uncommon, but it is rare to see a game ditch the genre it started in and jump into something significantly different. For John Wick Hex, the new tactics game based on the popular Keanu Reeves franchise, it meant ditching the classic turn-based combat of others games and creating something new altogether to capture the spirit of Wick’s knock-down, drag-out fights. You can read IGN’s preview of John Wick Hex’s gameplay, but the long and short of it is that you control Wick as he moves through tight urban levels, shooting, grappling, and crouch-rolling his way through enemy after enemy, all on a hex-based grid. For developer Mike Bithell, the experience of designing and prototyping Hex’s gameplay proved to be a humbling one. Continue reading… View the full article
  26. SPOILERS ahead for Dark Phoenix and Captain Marvel! The greenish, shape-shifting alien villains of Dark Phoenix are referred to in the new (and final) X-Men movie as the D'Bari, but they're not really like their Marvel Comics counterparts at all. That's because, according to Dark Phoenix actor Tye Sheridan, they were originally Skrulls. Yes, the same shape-shifters who played such a significant role in the recent Captain Marvel movie.
