Back in October, the recently crowned WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns announced that he would be vacating the title as he had been diagnosed with leukemia and needed to take time off. However, Reigns returned to Raw on February 25 to reveal that he's in remission and ready to compete in the WWE again.
There has been a lot of speculation around Reigns the past week, as WWE put out a press release stating the superstar would appear on the February 25 episode of Raw. During the opening moments of the show, Reigns came out to the ring and declared, "The good news is I'm in remission, y'all. So with that being said, the big dog is back!"
It was back on the October 22 episode of Raw where Reigns gave a speech to the world about his leave of absence, vowing to return: "Sometimes life throws you a curveball," Reigns said. "And right now, the best thing for me to do is to go home and focus on my family and my health... But I want to make one thing clear. By no means is this a retirement speech. After I'm done whooping leukemia's ass once again, I'm coming back home."
Marvel’s Spider-Man launched as a PS4 exclusive last September for $60, but if you’ve been waiting for that price to drop, today might be your best chance to snag this Insomniac Games hit title. Earlier this month, Insomniac Games announced Spider-Man has had a permanent price drop from $60 to $40, and you can snag the game for even cheaper right now at Newegg, where the standard edition is being sold for $35 (with free shipping!) through Thursday.
The game is also a few dollars off at Amazon, selling for $37 with free two-day shipping if you're a Prime member.
Spider-Man made GameSpot's list of the top 10 games of 2018 for its strong narrative, exciting combat, and impressive physics of wall-crawling and web-slinging around Manhattan. "It's exhilarating to step off a skyscraper and hear the orchestral score begin to swell, only to crescendo and level out as you start swinging towards your next objective," wrote associate editor Jordan Ramee. "There's never a moment in the game's 20-hour run-time where you don't want to be flying through the air."

True Detective Season 3 spoilers below!
True Detective: Season 3 didn't have a happy ending, per se. But given how badly things could have shaken out? It was about as happy as it could have been. Julie Purcell is alive, first and foremost. She slipped out of the Hoyt compound after Mr. June left the door open, and she found some peace and happiness with her elementary school sweetheart and her daughter. Roland has a family to love him, after years of only havings dogs for company. Wayne solved the mystery, even if he doesn't quite know that he did.
And that's the undercurrent of tragedy to this whole affair; nothing can stop or change the merciless passage of time. Woodard, Tom, and others are still dead, and without the knowledge that Julie made it through. And Wayne's mind will continue to degrade, until he's forever lost in the figurative forest in the season's final shot. The happiness is temporary. But it's all these characters can hope for, and it will have to do.
Season 3 will reward repeated viewings, especially equipped with our current knowledge of what really happened. Here are a few things you might not have picked up on.
Ubisoft has hosted a couple of private betas for The Division 2, but this weekend, the publisher is giving all players across PS4, Xbox One, and PC a chance to try out the upcoming shooter with its first open beta. Ahead of the test, Ubisoft has shared a new trailer showing off some of the content players will be able to experience.
The Division 2 open beta will run on all three platforms from March 1-4. During that time, players will be able to embark on three main missions on Normal and Hard modes. Two of these, Grand Washington Hotel and Jefferson Trade Center, were previously featured during the game's private betas, while Viewpoint Museum is new for this test.
The open beta will differ from the private tests in a few other ways. First, Ubisoft is raising the level cap to 8. There will also be an additional Skirmish PvP map (Capitol Ruins), as well as another Skill, Chem Launcher, which has two variants: Riot Foam and Explosive Vapor. Finally, Ubisoft is adding two additional Settlement Projects.
It's hard to argue that the Stan Lee cameo fans saw in the Academy Award-winning Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse is one of the comic book legends best yet. That the film's release came so soon after Lee's death gave the appearance even more impact for fans. However, what fans don't realize is that Lee is in almost every scene of the movie.
While it was previously revealed that Lee also popped up as a passenger on a train, thanks to a tweet shared by Sony animator Nick Kondo, it turns out that's only the tip of the iceberg. "He was a model that every animator wanted to use in the New York scene, so he often appeared quickly or briefly in a number of shots throughout the movie," producer Chris Miller revealed at an event celebrating the release of Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse on digital and Blu-ray. "Almost anytime there is a train going by, Stan's in it."
As it turns out, though, Lee isn't just in train scenes. "There's a scene when Miles and Peter land on the sidewalk and he says, 'Thanks New York' and the person walking over him is Stan on the phone, not noticing," Miller continues. "And there are many, many others, just tiny little bits because every animator wanted so desperately to be the one that animated Stan."
Despite what he says in this newly published video promoting Warner Bros.' upcoming Detective Pikachu movie, Ryan Reynolds isn't actually known for disappearing into his roles--unless you count putting on the Deadpool mask as disappearing. But it seems the actor is giving it his all to truly become the electric yellow mouse at the heart of Detective Pikachu.
In the video, Reynolds contends he did everything he could to lose himself in the role of Pikachu. He stopped picking his daughters up from school, practiced living at Pikachu height by lying flat on public sidewalks, and attempted to lose 182 pounds to match the character's weight. The video even features a special guest to weigh in on the toll the actor's exhaustive dedication has taken--but you'll have to watch the video to find out the rest.
Detective Pikachu is the live-action adaptation of the strangely conceived game of the same name, in which Pikachu takes on a human voice and solves mysteries. Here's the official plot synopsis from Warner Bros.:
Ubisoft has released the full patch notes for the final scheduled February update for Assassin's Creed Odyssey. Titled Patch 1.1.4, the update comes to Xbox One, PS4, and PC tomorrow, February 26.
The most notable addition included in the update is New Game Plus, a much requested feature from the Assassin's Creed community for Odyssey. To access New Game Plus, you'll need to finished the Family Quest Line, which is the largest of the three mainline campaign stories in Odyssey. Once you've completed that storyline, you'll see the option to play New Game Plus on the main menu between Load and Options. Playing New Game Plus puts you back at the beginning of Odyssey's story, but you keep all of your gear, mounts, spear and ship upgrades, abilities, drachmae, and crafting materials. You'll also have the choice of continuing to play as your Kassandra or Alexios or switch to the other playable protagonist if you want a change of pace.
Patch 1.1.4 also adds 10 decorative frames for use in Odyssey's in-game Photo Mode. There are also new accessibility options included in the update that allow you to further customize how subtitles appear in-game. Support for Odyssey's upcoming Legacy of the First Blade Episode 3: Bloodline DLC--coming to all systems March 5--and the next month's Lost Tales of Greece missions is included in the patch too.
Avengers: Endgame promises the culmination of a story arc that has lasted more than a decade. The ambitious Marvel Cinematic Universe has borrowed liberally from the criss-crossing continuity that comic fans have known for years, and evolved into a sprawling movie empire. And because it has become so larger-than-life, it’s easy to forget that it began with a single hero. Tony Stark was our unlikely introduction to this universe. Now it’s time for his character to exit, and in the process, to finish one of the longest continuous character arcs in filmmaking history. By the time the credits roll on Endgame, Tony Stark should be deceased.
The MCU has introduced or reintroduced dozens of heroes to the big screen, but none has had a single coherent character trajectory quite like Tony Stark. Captain America has become disillusioned and questioned what his patriotic symbolism means, and Thor has gone through a variety of relationship ups-and-downs with his brother Loki, but Stark has had the most room to subtly grow. Part of that is his sheer screen-time. Due to a combination of his appearances in his own trilogy of Iron Man films, all of the Avengers films, and even cameos in others like Spider-Man: Homecoming, actor Robert Downey Jr. and the MCU writers have had the space to develop Stark to an incredible degree.
