Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker final trailer finally conveys finality

There's a lot of war in this Star Wars Perhaps my sense of time has been thrown out of flux, but it feels like this Star Wars sequel trilogy has only just begun. Not only is it near its end, but The Rise of Skywalker will cap off the Skywalker Saga as a whole. Star Wars stans around the country endured Monday Night Football to get a taste of what J.J. Abrams will have in store. It turns out, there's gonna be a lot of Star Wars in this Star Wars. As advertised, this film looks more like an adve

Jeph Loeb seemed done at NYCC 2019, and now Kevin Feige is his boss

While walking around the Marvel area of New York Comic-Con 2019, I didn't see anything that particularly surprised me. Everything was telling of the times, from cosplays of Iron Man plus Gauntlet to what seemed like a legion of "Bro Thors," showcasing the pop culture impact of the Marvel Cinematic Universe with Avengers: Endgame. But on the television side, all I spotted was one scene that may elicit despondency from fans.

Blizzard Releases Official Statement on Suspended Hong Kong Hearthstone Player

It has been a time of reckoning for a number of American corporations, as their ties to China have been under scrutiny by their fans and followers. The ripple effects of the protests in Hong Kong finally reached the competitive gaming sphere when Hong Kong Hearthstone player Ng “blitzchung” Wai Chung made a political statement in support of Hong Kong in a livestream, receiving a year-long ban from competitive Hearthstone. Days later, late on a Friday night, publisher Blizzard Entertainment would finally make a statement.

Marvel’s Avengers Reveals Kamala Khan as the Game’s Secret Protagonist

By the time Marvel’s Avengers from Square Enix and Crystal Dynamics releases, the film Avengers: Endgame will be over a year old. That movie was a farewell to some of the characters made famous by the 2012 original film, with a sense of closure. But this upcoming and long-hyped video game is asking us to get excited for Tony Stark, Steve Rogers, and Natasha Romanoff yet again, leading me to believe that this new game was in need of new blood. Square Enix responded to that worry today at New York Comic-Con 2019, announcing that Ms. Marvel, Kamala Khan, would be the sixth playable character.

Birds of Prey trailer has Harley Quinn in a new stage of life

It's easy to be skeptical of anything Joker or Harley Quinn-related that DC Films and Warner Bros. puts out after Suicide Squad. That disaster of an Oscar-winning film established the 'edgy' corner of the DC movies that no one really asked for, and it's fair if you thought that the Cathy Yan-directed Birds of Prey looks the same. The new trailer will certainly have its naysayers, but you know what? I'm in.

Oculus Quest Will Be Able to Play Rift Games With Oculus Link

Pretty soon, owners of the Oculus Quest headset will pretty much be able to have it all, courtesy of the newly-announced Oculus Link software. Using a high-quality (and probably super long) USB cable, Quest users can play with and experience Oculus Rift content through their gaming PC—all while keeping the Quest’s trademarked and lauded portability intact. The news came out of today’s Oculus Connect 6 event.

Marvel's Ghost Rider live-action series dropped by Hulu

In case the Netflix cancellations weren't an indicator enough, Marvel Television hasn't had the greatest time in the past year. The Defenders are no more, their flagship Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. will be wrapping up soon, and Marvel Studios is overshadowing them with an absurd number of Disney+ projects. Now the Jeph Loeb-led division can barely carve its own space in Hulu, with the previously-announced Ghost Rider starring Gabriel Luna no longer happening on the streaming network.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Narrative Director on Survival PS4 Exclusivity: “Above Our Pay Grade”

A legion of Call of Duty fans and video game consumers alike took to the internet after yesterday’s State of Play presentation, which revealed some Call of Duty: Modern Warfare news they found troubling. After dropping a cinematic trailer for the first-person shooter’s campaign mode, the trailer sneaked in a tidbit about the Spec Ops Survival mode being exclusive to PlayStation 4 owners for almost a year. Infinity Ward narrative director Taylor Kurosaki attempted to downplay the news on Twitter today, engaging with some concerned fans.

2019 Primetime Emmys: Game of Thrones, Fleabag take top awards

It's the end of an era for a couple of iconic television shows in this so-called 'Platinum Age,' with Game of Thrones in particular getting a glitzy send-off. But while tonight's Primetime Emmy Awards paid tribute to some long-running shows, they also served as a showcase for some rising programs and lesser-watched gems. Phoebe Waller-Bridge's Fleabag, which ran for two seasons, ended up taking four trophies, the most of the night.
