Mortal Kombat Movie Greenlit For a Sequel, Brings In Jeremy Slater as Scriptwriter

20 hours 44 minutes ago

The Mortal Kombat franchise got a movie adaptation last year (no, not the 1995 one with the awesome music), and was released to critical acclaim. While the movie deviated slightly from the games by introducing a brand new and original character, Cole Young, as the main protagonist, it was still deeply rooted in the lore of the games and delivered on a high-octane action-packed movie experience.

The movie has since been greenlit for a sequel, and according to a report from Deadline, it looks like Jeremy Slater will be brought on to the project to work on the script. Slater worked on Disney+’s Moon Knight TV series adaptation, starring Oscar Isaac and Ethan Hawke, and is set to air in March.

With all the little teases and hints towards a possible continuation of the story in last year’s Mortal Kombat movie, it’s no surprise that we’re getting a sequel especially considering its reception. There are no other details on the sequel just yet, but we’ll keep you updated as more info comes our way.

The post Mortal Kombat Movie Greenlit For a Sequel, Brings In Jeremy Slater as Scriptwriter appeared first on Twinfinite.

Which Feature From Pokémon Legends: Arceus Moves The Series Forward Most?

21 hours 24 minutes ago

The reviews for Pokémon Legends: Arceus have started to hit today, and if you haven't read Brian Shea's review yet, give it a look right here. Legends: Arceus is a significant change to the traditional Pokémon formula, which is a big deal for a series that hasn't strayed far from its roots in over 25 years. Instead of a fairly focused JRPG adventure, where you stroll from town to town, catching and building teams of Pokémon to challenge Gyms and eventually the Elite Four, Legends takes another route.

Legends: Arceus is very different, in fact. It lets trainers explore large open areas and catch monsters in the wild, a years-long dream of mine when thinking of the future of the series. I couldn't stop grinning when I first saw the player character sneaking up on an unsuspecting Wurmple and tossing a Pokéball at it. I had the same reaction when Game Freak showed you could start Pokémon battles by choosing which team member to toss out towards the target, just like Ash Ketchum would in the anime. Then I found out that gathering and crafting would be a big component of the game, and I was relieved the last few years of mastering a similar loop in Monster Hunter seems like it's going to pay off nicely.

Uncharted's PS5 Debut Is Beautiful and Still a Blast - Beyond 733

21 hours 41 minutes ago

On this week's episode of IGN's PlayStation show, Podcast Beyond!, host Jonathon Dornbush is joined by Mark Medina and Jada Griffin to discuss Uncharted's PS5 debut with the Uncharted Legacy of Thieves Collection, and a host of news in the world of PlayStation.

First, we break down the PlayStation Plus lineup for February, which brings three games to players who subscribe to PS Plus: UFC 4, Tiny Tina's Assault on Dragon Keep, and Planet Coaster: Console Edition. We dig into our thoughts on PS Plus, how Sony's alleged upcoming Game Pass-like subscription service might affect it, and more. Then, we follow up on the discussion around Call of Duty's future on PlayStation, with a new report from Bloomberg about how PlayStation fans can expect COD for a couple years more, and then things start to get murky. Then, we dig into the excitement over a PSN glitch that many assumed to be a leak for PlayStation backward compatibility, how likely it means something is on the way, and more. We also discuss the news that Respawn is working on three new Star Wars games, why Mark should play Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, and more.

The Book of Boba Fett's Darksaber Explained: The History of the Mandalorian Lightsaber

21 hours 44 minutes ago

Warning: this article contains major spoilers for The Mandalorian: Season 2 and The Book of Boba Fett: Episode 5!

The Mandalorian Season 1 introduced a weapon with a major legacy in the Star Wars universe. The Darksaber returned in the hands of Moff Gideon in the Season 1 finale, with Season 2 subsequently introducing one of the Darksaber's previous owners in the form of Katee Sackhoff's Bo-Katan Kryze. And with the Darksaber now in the hands of Mando himself following the Mandalorian Season 2 finale, it's safe to say this blade will continue to play a big part in the series and spinoffs like The Book of Boba Fett.

If you're confused as to why everyone seems so fixated on a black lightsaber, fear not. Here's everything you need to know about the Darksaber and how it ties the series back to the events of Star Wars: The Clone Wars.

What is the Darksaber in The Mandalorian?

The Darksaber is unique among all the lightsabers in the Star Wars universe. It has a flat, katana-like blade rather than the traditional saber shape. It emits a peculiar, low hum. Even its color is unlike any other - deep black with a bright white halo.

If you love the Danganronpa series, Good Smile Company has a treat for you coming down the line.

The Akihabara-based manufacturer made a new figure portraying Nagito Komaeda from Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair available for pre-orders.

You can find it at the company’s Japanese shop or at the American one for 3,900 yen and $38.99 respectively. The release window is May 2022 for Japan and July for the US.

Minecraft Tournament Cyberattack Cripples a Small Country's Internet

22 hours 14 minutes ago

More than a decade after its original release, Minecraft continues to be massive — so massive that it apparently has the power to take down an entire country's internet.

Last weekend, a major Minecraft tournament endured a cyberattack significant enough to disrupt the internet in Andorra, a small country in Europe bordered by France and Spain. The population only numbers around 77,000, roughly the capacity of an NFL football stadium.

NetBlocks, an internet outage tracker, says the disruption was caused by a cyberattack targeting the Minecraft competition, which led directly to the elimination of Team Andorra. The competition featured 150 contestants competing in events from Squid Game, including well-known streamers.

Planet Coaster, Tiny Tina's Assault on Dragon Keep come to PlayStation Plus in February

23 hours 35 minutes ago

With February (you may better know it by its more common name, Elden Ring month) less than a week away, it's time to do the subscription service additions dance once more. First up is PlayStation Plus, with Sony now confirming Planet Coaster, UFC 4, and Tiny Tina's Assault on Dragon Keep as February's library additions.

It's a pleasingly eclectic bunch, that, starting with Frontier Developments' Planet Coaster, which joins PlayStation Plus for PlayStation 5 only. It's a game that seeks to serve up a heap of classic theme park management action, but even speaking as a huge management sim fan that's happy to hoover up anything the genre has to offer, Planet Coaster comes up disappointingly short if you're looking for a tycoon game with mechanical depth and interesting strategic play. Where it shines, though, is in its immensely powerful creation tools, giving players everything they need to build some truly breathtaking parks and rides.

New Uncharted Movie Trailer Is All About Tom Holland’s Stunts

23 hours 52 minutes ago

The Uncharted movie is coming close, and Sony Pictures Entertainment is continuing to release small trailers and videos.

Tom Holland’s stunts appear to be quite the selling point. Following the video from a few days ago on this very theme, we get another one, perhaps a bit more comedic.

Of course, this includes the iconic cargo plane scene, which is basically lifted from Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception. You can watch it in a previous video that was revealed during Sony’s press conference at CES.

Steam Deck Finally Gets Its Release Date

1 day ago

Today Valve announced the release date of their highly anticipated handheld PC console. The Steam Deck will launch on Feb. 25, roughly a month from today. This release isn’t entirely open, however.

The Feb. 25 release date will only include those that reserved their order last year when the Steam Deck was revealed. When that date hits, those that ordered one will have three days to confirm and finalize their purchase.

Here are the full details via Steam:

“Hello, the day is almost here! On February 25th, we will be sending out the first batch of order emails to reservation holders. Customers will have 3 days (72 hours) from receipt of their order email to make their purchase, before their reservation is released to the next person in the queue. The first units will be on their way to customers starting the 28th, and we plan to release new order email batches on a weekly cadence.”

Also, Valve added:

  • We will start sending invites shortly after 10:00 am on February 25th, PST
  • Order emails are sent in the same order that reservations were made.
  • You can only order the Steam Deck model that you originally reserved.
  • Your reservation deposit will be applied to the final price of Steam Deck, and shipping costs are included.

As the notice above suggests, once this initial backlog is cleared out, they will then begin accepting orders for new people that didn’t get in on the first batch.

The Steam Deck has the potential to be quite a disruptive piece of hardware. We’ll see how it shakes out in about a month.

Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection Performance Review

1 day ago

Nathan Drake is back once again with his first PlayStation 5 adventure, bringing Chloe and friends along for an updated and upgraded dual package of Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End and the spinoff Uncharted: The Lost Legacy. Offering enhancements and some huge performance leaps over the globetrotting thief’s PS4 & PS4 Pro release. But is a treasure worth fighting for?

This new remaster offers a few paths to play, with existing disc or digital owners of the PS4 version of either included game being able to upgrade for $10s, euros, or great British pounds to this new pack. Or you can make a full purchase if you’re new to the Uncharted fold, and even PC players will get a release later this year. As we have seen in previous remasters from Death Stranding and Ghost of Tsushima, you can easily import your PS4 save using the main menu’s in-built conversation tool. Allowing you to pick up where you left off – just sharper and faster than before. Simply download or USB copy your save over to your ps5 drive, then fire it up and convert it to a PS5 format. Note that you can copy multiple saves; you simply need to do them one at a time from the main menu.

Yu-Gi-Oh! Master Duel Is A Great Exercise In Putting Yourself Out There

1 day ago

Yu-Gi-Oh! Master Duel reminded me that putting yourself out there is challenging. Whether you duel on the regular or are dusting off the deck for the first time in years, pouring your heart and soul into constructing a deck and pitting it against a stranger online is surprisingly nerve-wracking. What if my card synergy isn’t any good? Is my opponent snickering at me because my cards aren’t up to the hottest meta? What if … I lose? That fear can be surprisingly crippling and prevent you from enjoying the best aspect of the game: testing your skills against fellow duelists. Even worse, it keeps you from getting better.

Battling this mindset is something I’ve continually coped with. From 2003 to 2009, I was a competitive Yu-Gi-Oh! player. I never strutted into the hallowed halls of a world championship tourney or anything, but I was a regular at my local comic/toy stores. I remember how nervous I was testing my deck, which I only played against a small friend circle; I assumed strangers would obliterate me. Even though I was proud of what I created, I couldn’t afford all the top-tier cards, and having that exposed felt embarrassing. The anxiety almost made me want to avoid public play in the early days. But my friend’s support and my passion for the game got me over the edge.

The Overture of ELDEN RING Book Will Debut in February

People will have a chance to read about Elden Ring in a book before playing it. Yen Press will release The Overture of Elden Ring on February 3, 2022. This ebook will offer insight into the game and its development. It’s described as a “primer” for it.

There aren’t many details about what will be in the book. It does mention an interview with FromSoftware Director Hidetaka Miyazaki will be in it. The November 2021 network test will be discussed as well. People might see art from the game. In addition, other Soulslikes like Bloodborne and Dark Souls will appear.

Here is a full look at the cover for The Overture of Elden Ring.
The Overture of ELDEN RING Book Will Debut in February

As for the game itself, things seem to be on schedule. Bandai Namco and FromSoftware confirmed it went gold at the Taipei Game Show 2022. This means the master version already shipped out and development is officially done. Producer Yasuhiro Kitao also noted at that time that someone who doesn't want to do and see everything could probably beat the game in around 30 hours.

Valve's Steam Deck Officially Launching In Late February

1 day 1 hour ago

Valve wasn't joking a few weeks ago when it said that its upcoming handheld Steam Deck was going to hit current shipping targets. Today, the company announced the first batch of Steam Decks will start to be sold to customers on February 25 and sent out shortly after.

More specifically, Valve plans to send out emails to those lucky early reservation holders starting on February 25. From there, customers will have 72 hours to respond and confirm the purchase. If that process proceeds smoothly, a shiny new Steam Deck will be delivered to its new home starting on February 28. Steam Decks held for those who fail to complete the purchase within that three-day period will be available for the next reservation in line. Valve did make it clear that the model that you reserved is locked in as the one you'll have the opportunity to buy. There won't be a way to switch when the confirmation email comes through. 

Make sure to keep an eye on your inbox if you think you'll be eligible to buy the device close to launch. Valve says it plans "to release new order email batches on a weekly cadence."

Book of Boba Fett Meets Mario Kart in This Hilarious Fan-Made Video

1 day 2 hours ago

A few weeks ago on Disney+, The Book of Boba Fett aired one of the most unintentionally comical chase scenes ever seen in entertainment, as the former bounty hunter’s subordinates chase a vehicle using Vespa-like hover scooters. In fact, the chase was so ridiculous, one fan even went out of their way to make a video with sounds and features from Mario Kart, and it fits in seamlessly.

Posted to the Youtube channel Darth Porg under the title Boba Kart, the following video will have Star Wars and Mario Kart fans rolling in laughter, as it shows off a mock race the Twi’lek Majordomo, Drash, and the other machine-gang members.

Keen viewers will notice a bunch of subtle touches in this crossover, including clever use of the fire flower power-up and a scene at the end where Boba Fett joins the race. This video is just one of many Star Wars-themed pieces of content that Darth Porg has to offer, so be sure to go and check out their official Youtube channel for more interesting clips.

Top 6 Most Anticipated Games of 2022

1 day 2 hours ago

Another year brings with it another exciting line-up of new games to look forward to. As part of Twinfinite’s annual award season, the staff has voted for its six most anticipated games of 2022. These are the landmark titles we think will define what is shaping up to be the first really big year of this most recent console generation.

Most Anticipated Games of 2022

6. Starfield

most anticipated 2022

Editor-in-Chief Ed McGlone: Depending on who you ask, Starfield might seem low on our list, or they might feel it’s too high. Personally, I think just being on a list of most anticipated games is just the right spot.

It’s being developed by Bethesda, so that alone means you have to be hyped for it at least a little bit, as long as you’re into open-world RPG games. Bethesda has earned its reputation for being one of the most prolific creators in that space.

Dying Light 2 Post-Launch 5 Year DLC Roadmap Timeline

Dying Light 2 Stay Human isn’t even out yet – it hits PlayStation and Xbox consoles as well as PC on February 4 –and while the base game offers 500 hours of gameplay, Techland is already excited to share what’s next for the game after its launch. 

Techland has revealed that it has a five-year roadmap for the first-person zombie parkour game, meaning you’ll be receiving new DLC for it until at least 2027. While that’s quite surprising to learn, fans of Techland’s first Dying Light game are likely already familiar with the studio’s DLC commitments. 

As you can see in the image above, the first bit of DLC will launch in February alongside free Factions-inspired content. Then, sometime in March, Techland will release its first set of Dying Light 2 challenges, followed by a series of events featuring mutated infected in April. Fast forward to May, and you’re looking at another set of challenges coming to the game. Then in June, you can expect the first paid story DLC.

Announced on the PlayStation Blog, February's free games for PS Plus subscribers include Tiny Tina's Assault on Dragon Keep and EA Sports UFC 4 for PS4 players, and Planet Coaster Console Edition for PS5 owners.

Steam Deck February 2022 Release Date Set

1 day 2 hours ago

Steam Deck February 2022 Release Date Set

We now know the official Steam Deck release date. Valve confirmed that yes, the first units will appear on February 25, 2022. Those who placed reservations and are in the first round will get theirs in that group. Once they place their orders, their systems will ship on February 28, 2022.

Valve offered some details about how the order emails for the Steam Deck will work once the release date rolls around. People will get an opportunity to order the unit model they reserved. Once they get an invite, they have 72 hours to purchase their Steam Deck. After the first round of invites, eventually each week more chances to order will appear.

As a reminder, this comes after a brief delay. Back in November 2021, Valve pushed the handheld out of December 2021. As usual, the global shortages and supply chain issues were to blame. Certain items needed to create the Steam Decks ended up not being available when expected.

As a reminder, the Steam Deck will be available in three variants. The least expensive bundle is $399. It is the 64GB eMMC model. There is also a 256GB NVMe SSD variant for $529 and a 512 GB NVMe SSD model for $649. Each one comes with a carrying case. People who place reservations now are expected to be able to buy and get one in Q2 2022.

The Valve Steam Deck release date is February 25, 2022.
