Let's get weird with it.
One of the most fun parts of being an MCU fan is sitting back and trying to connect the dots. And after a decade of movies being woven together, there are no shortage of dots in play. As we head into Avengers: Endgame in earnest, it's crunch time on getting every crazy, abstract, just-weird-enough-to-work theory written down and out there, just on the off chance that you'll get to say "I told you so" when the final battle with Thanos actually happens.
That, and with a little over a month left to wait for Endgame to hit theaters, we've got to keep ourselves sane somehow, right? The anticipation is killing us.
So, with that in mind, we've compiled a list of our favorite post-Captain Marvel fan theories, ranging from the extremely likely to the absolutely bonkers--and everything in between. We're just as in the dark as everyone else when it comes to the next phase of Marvel movies, but we like to think we've got enough nervous energy and enthusiasm to make some educated (and not-so-educated) guesses about the way things are going to play out.
Pokemon Go players who missed their chance to catch Rayquaza last year will have soon have another opportunity to do so. Niantic is bringing the Legendary Sky High Pokemon back for a special Raid event this weekend--but like before, it won't be around for very long.
From March 15-18, Rayquaza will make an encore appearance in Raid Battles around the world. Before you can capture the Legendary Pokemon, you'll first need to team up with other players in-person and battle it. If your group manages to defeat it, you'll receive a handful of Premier Balls along with an opportunity to catch it.
Rayquaza is a dual Dragon/Flying-type, which makes it particularly susceptible to Ice-type attacks, so you'll want to bring along Pokemon such as Mamoswine and Lapras to battle it. Dragon is also one of the few Pokemon types that is vulnerable to itself, so other Dragon Pokemon such as Giratina and Salamence should prove to be effective as well.
Ubisoft has announced what gameplay changes are included in the upcoming remaster for Assassin's Creed III. The game will be receiving additional updates on the Switch version as well, most of which take advantage of the console's unique features.
The gameplay changes for Assassin's Creed III: Remastered are detailed in the March Monthly Update for Assassin's Creed Odyssey. Ubisoft stated that many of the changes are to create a "better balance between action and stealth" in the game. Double assassinations, which existed in the original AC3, are now easier to pull off. Whistling to attract enemy guards, which you only could do from behind cover before, can now also be done from bushes. Free-aiming long-range weapons--which was added into the franchise in Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag--is being implemented into the remaster as well, allowing more control with Ratonhnhaké:ton's pistols and bow.
AC3: Remastered also includes "additional weapons for crafting," an updated in-game economy, and a new UI that incorporates color-blind settings. The game will include new Legacy outfits as well, which allow Ratonhnhaké:ton to dress up as protagonists from other Assassin's Creed games, such as Origins' Bayek and Odyssey's Alexios.
When YouTube decided to revive The Karate Kid as a TV show, it was met with justified skepticism. But just like Johnny Lawrence (William Zabka) did not see Daniel's (Ralph Macchio) crane kick coming at the 1984 All-Valley Karate Championship so was the world not ready for how good Cobra Kai would be. Going into Season 2, the surprise factor is gone, and expectations are through the roof. So how does Cobra Kai respond? After viewing the first two episodes at SXSW, it's clear it does so by striking first, striking hard, and having no mercy for your free time, because you're going to want to binge this show as soon as it hits YouTube.
At the end of Season 1, we witnessed a flash from the past as a member of Cobra Kai illegally hurts a student of Miyagi-dojo during a karate tournament. Only this time, Miguel (Xolo Maridueña) took the first place trophy for the infamous dojo instead of the other way around, leaving Johnny drunk and depressed he turned a sweet kid into a jerk, and that his own son got hurt in the process.
Rebellion announced not one or two, but four Sniper Elite projects today, across a variety of platforms including virtual reality. The centerpiece of the announcement is the next major Sniper Elite game, though the announcement shies away from calling it "Sniper Elite 5" by name. However, Rebellion acknowledges that it's in development.
The other three games include two resurrected classics and one emerging technology. Sniper Elite V2 Remastered will bring the 2012 game to current platforms with updated visuals and new features, including 4K resolution and HDR support, a photo mode, an expanded multiplayer mode, and all of its add-on content. It will hit PC, Xbox One, PS4, and Nintendo Switch this year.
Similarly, Sniper Elite 3 Ultimate Edition is coming to Nintendo Switch this year, and also includes the full suite of add-on content. It sports a new local wireless multiplayer mode and motion controls.
We're in the endgame now. The massive finale to the first decade of the Marvel Cinematic Universe--and the end of MCU Phase 3--is coming and with each passing day until the theatrical release of Avengers: Endgame, fans learn new things about what to expect from the upcoming film.
However, with so much being revealed in the weeks and months before Endgame, it can be hard to keep up. Whether it's new trailers, a poster that seemingly gives away the return of characters you weren't sure you'd see, or the endless stream of potential theories about how the Avengers could possibly save the universe that was turned to dust by Thanos (Josh Brolin), there's a lot to talk about.
To keep things simple, GameSpot has come up with this one-stop shop for everything you need to know--and everything we've learned thus far--about Avengers: Endgame. This movie is surely going to change the game for the MCU, so make sure you're caught up on everything before it hits theaters.
It's not every day that AAA games released in the past year are drastically discounted, but when they are, we take notice. For those who can't afford to drop $60 or more on every new game release, it's more of a waiting game for the best sale. If you've been holding out on anything, today might be your day, as Newegg is offering a 20% off promo code on games and game accessories, some of which are already discounted.
Using the promo code EMCTWUY38, you can get games like Anthem, Kingdom Hearts 3, Marvel's Spider-Man, God of War, and Red Dead Redemption 2 for 20% off. Red Dead Redemption 2 is already 25% off, so using the code, you can get it for just $36. Marvel's Spider-Man recently received a permanent price drop to $40, so with the code, you can get it even cheaper for just $32. God of War is 33% off and also selling for $32 if you use the code; however, its initial discount appears to be ending after today, so don't wait if you want that game. Even a few Nintendo Switch Mario games are included in the promotion--a rare chance to snag them for just $48 each.
Xbox One has gotten another bloody addition to its backwards compatibility line-up today, with the addition of Castlevania: Harmony of Despair. The Xbox 360 game is now playable on Xbox One. If you don't already own it, it's now for $15, along with several character packs for a few bucks apiece.
The 2010 game was part of that year's Summer of Arcade lineup, with an emphasis on co-op play that remains unique to the series. To that end it featured several of the series' most well-known protagonists, including Alucard, Soma Cruz, and Julius Belmont. The DLC packs added other heroes like Simon Belmont and Maria Renard, along with extra stages.
In GameSpot's review, critic Giancarlo Varanini suggested that the co-op play was a unique twist, but some areas required it too much for it to live as a single-player experience.
Devil May Cry 5 is getting the series' staple Bloody Palace mode in a few weeks. Capcom has confirmed it will be adding the mode to its new action game as a free update across PS4, Xbox One, and PC on April 1.
Bloody Palace has appeared in nearly every Devil May Cry game to date. The mode pits players against increasingly challenging waves of enemies and bosses, all while a timer ticks down. In DMC5's iteration, you'll be able to play as one of the game's three protagonists: Dante, Nero, or V. You can take a look at some screenshots of the mode below.
Devil May Cry 5 launched earlier this month and has already proven to be a critical and commercial success for Capcom. The game debuted at No. 1 in the UK and has garnered positive reviews, including from GameSpot. We awarded it a 9/10 and called it "a brilliant iteration of the series' best qualities" in our Devil May Cry 5 review.
