The Coolest Pokémon Sun And Moon – Lost Thunder Cards We Pulled From Booster Packs

The train that is the Pokémon Trading Card Game continues to roll even as the year ends. Lost Thunder is not only the biggest expansion in terms of new cards in years, but it also delivers several quality cards starring fan-favorite Pocket Monsters, with a focus on the first, second, and seventh generations of creatures.

We were sent several booster packs, as well as the two theme decks centered on Gen 2's legendary Pokémon Entei and Raikou. Fans of the early generations of Pokémon should be pleased with this release, as most of the cards I pulled were from the first two generations. Of course, with the set still a part of the Sun & Moon series, the most recent generation of monsters also appears prominently. With more than 210 cards in this expansion, I was excited by the number of powerful, interesting, and cool cards I pulled from the packs and decks.

Check out the gallery of my favorite cards I pulled from the Pokémon Sun and Moon – Lost Thunder expansion below and if you want to see more of the recent expansions from Pokémon TCG, check out our other galleries.

The 10 Best RPGs To Play On Halloween

The 10 Best RPGs To Play On Halloween

Happy Halloween! I knew when this iteration of my column landed on this day I had to showcase the genre’s spookier offerings. That means giving you a varied list that captures everything we know and love about this occasion, from the psychological terrors to the more lighthearted elements. Get yourself in the Halloween spirit by starting up one of these RPGs. Who knows? You might just find a new game to try, or be reminded of a classic you’ve been meaning to revisit. 

Parasite Eve (PS1) As Square’s first M-rated game, Parasite Eve delivers plenty of tense and startling moments, as you go toe-to-toe with an entity hellbent on destroying mankind through spontaneous combustion. Its comparisons to the Silent Hill and Resident Evil series are apt, as you fight your way through mutated creatures and seek answers. Close corridors and sensational bosses with everything from a Spider Woman to a T-Rex keep things interesting, and most importantly, you on your toes.

The Scariest Games We've Played

The Scariest Games We've Played

Kids dressed up as various Fortnite characters are likely going to ring your doorbell and yell "trick or treat" tonight. After you hand them candy, and perhaps watch them perform one of Fortnite's dance moves before vacating your property, we suggest diving into a horror game to end your Halloween night. We recommend playing one of the scariest games ever made – a game that may make you put the controller down and say "Nope. I can't go on." Which game could frighten you this much? I polled Game Informer's staff to find out which game they would deem "the scariest of all time." Along with some of the heavy hitters of video game horror, some staffers picked the game that defined this genre for them. One writer also picked a game that should scare no one.

We hope this list leads to a night of terrifying screeches and popcorn being thrown due to jump scares. Let us know in the comments section below which game you'd classify as the scariest ever made.

Trick Or Treat: What's Behind The Door?

Trick Or Treat: What's Behind The Door?

It's Halloween! If you're a kid, that means you can dress up like a monster/animal/Fortnite character and harass your neighbors for candy. Adults don't have it so lucky. Sure, we can dress up at work, but we'll probably only get weird looks for our trouble. Fear not – we've got you covered!

Our dentist-approved holiday celebration is pretty simple: Click on the image below to get a video trick or a video treat. There are some cool things, some weird stuff, and some completely terrible garbage. Best of all, it's subjective! One person's banana-flavored Runt is another's candy corn. Or something like that?

Science-Fiction Weekly – The Next Batch Of Marvel Films, Star Wars: Boba Fett, The Orville

Science-Fiction Weekly – The Next Batch Of Marvel Films, Star Wars: Boba Fett, The Orville

Marvel still hasn’t revealed the name of the next Avengers film, which hits theaters in just seven months, yet rumors are suggesting that the company will focus on the origin of the Marvel universe in the next batch of films. Along with next year’s Captain Marvel (a period piece releasing on March 8) and Spider-Man: Far From Home (the sequel set for July 5), Marvel may release an origin film for Black Widow and a debut film for The Eternals in 2020. The Black Widow film would reportedly give us a look at Natasha Romanova upbringing in the KGB, whereas The Eternals takes us back millions of years to show us the Celestials creating the groundwork for gods and heroes we see in the films today. We'll have to wait to see if Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 3 is added to that slate, but with James Gunn out of the picture, and development delayed, it will likely move to 2021 or later.
