Science-Fiction Weekly – Destiny 2: Forsaken's Strike, Star Wars Resistance, Destination Primus Vita, Solar Opposites

Patrick Stewart is reprising his iconic role of captain Picard in a new television series. Is there any chance William Shatner could come back as Captain Kirk? Maybe, but not as a series. In an interview with Toronto Star, Shatner says he's focusing on other things in his life. “I’ve been offered many series over the years," he says. "But I haven’t done them because of the commitment of time. And at this stage of my life that’s more valuable than anything else.” He added that he would maybe be open for a cameo, but admits it would be tough given the permission process at Paramount.

I don't know how it would work out, but I would love to see a Q episode that unites as many of the captains as possible. At the very least, we need another clip of Kirk and Picard riding horses in a prairie. Shatner's horse control is astounding.

An Apology Letter To Final Fantasy XV

Dear Final Fantasy XV,

Look: You had to know this was coming, right? I mean, I’ve been trying to play you for nearly two years now. I actually remember sitting down to play you for the first time. It was after midnight and my copy had just finished downloading. I had read our cover story and was finally being excited for a Final Fantasy for the first time since FFX. I loved the idea of a game dedicated to a literal road trip, y’know? Just you and the lads, roaming the countryside in a futuristic car, listening to music, camping out in the wilderness, stopping at bed-and-breakfast joints when you aren’t slaying monsters and trying to take back your rightful kingdom.

Four Questions You Should Be Asking About Assassin's Creed Odyssey

Four Questions You Should Be Asking About Assassin's Creed Odyssey

If you’re excited for Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, the last month has been a treasure trove of information. We’ve done deep dives on the mercenary system, the progression, building your crew, and more. But even with all of the available details, a few major points remain foggy. The team at Ubisoft Quebec is still keeping some secrets, but if you want to get closer to solving those mysteries, here are a handful of questions (and some not-too-revealing answers) to point you in the right direction.

At the beginning of Odyssey, you select whether you want to control Alexios or Kassandra. But are they just two sides of the same coin, or two separate coins altogether? If you choose one, does the other still exist somewhere in the world? We didn’t get a direct answer to that question during our time at the studio, which indicates that the topic might be complicated.

How To Access Hollow Knight's Godmaster DLC

How To Access Hollow Knight's Godmaster DLC

Hollow Knight got its last piece of free DLC this week as an update to the well-received indie game. Much like the games it takes inspiration from, Hollow Knight hides access to the DLC in a way that isn't necessarily easy to find. Luckily, we played through some of it to lend a hand.

The main area of the Godmaster DLC is a zone called the Junk Pit. You're going to head toward the Flukemarm, the large Fluke-birthing boss in the Royal Waterway, and look for a crack in the room just outside her lair in the ceiling. Smashing it open reveals a maze-like room that leads to the Junk Pit. If you have a simple key, of which there are three in the base game, you can just walk right in. If you used all three keys already, then there's a stop you need to make first.

Take the stag to King's Station and make your way up to the Colosseum of Fools. You usually enter the colosseum from the left, but this time drop down to the waiting area, head to the east side of the room, and climb up. Break the wall on the right of the new room and follow an NPC for a new simple key. Now you can return to the Royal Waterways and the Junk Pit just beyond.

Reader Discussion: Which Battle Royale Game Are You Most Looking Forward To?

A quick look at Twitch daily streaming numbers confirms what most of us already knew - battle royale games like Fornite and PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds are still massively popular. But those huge player bases could soon be split among several more games. 

Later this year, Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 will join the fight for battle royale supremacy with its Blackout mode. Battlefield V also has a battle royale mode coming in the near future, and several lower-profile titles like Housemarque's Stormdivers and Automaton's Mavericks: Proving Grounds are also preparing to skydive into the competition. 

Which, if any, of these new battle royale titles are you most interested in trying? Do you expect one of them to become a destination mode for you, or are you more likely to stick with Fortnite or PUBG? Share your thoughts in the reader section below.

Science-Fiction Weekly – Star Wars Resistance, Star Trek Discovery, Marvel Cinematic Universe, State Of Mind

Science-Fiction Weekly – Star Wars Resistance, Star Trek Discovery, Marvel Cinematic Universe, State Of Mind

The company that likes selling stormtrooper toys to collectors is back with a new television series, and more importantly, a brand-new stormtrooper color! If you loved Captain Phasma's shiny silver armor, wait until you see the shiny gold stormtrooper! This First Order soldier will make his or her debut in Star Wars Resistance, a new ongoing series coming on October 7 to Disney Channel, Disney NOW, Disney Channel VOD, and later airing on Disney XD. I love the idea of stormtroopers customizing their gear, but introducing an all-gold stormtrooper in the same time frame as Phasma's reign diminishes her unique stance in the Star Wars universe.

Resistance takes place before the events of Star Wars: The Force Awakens. An eagle-eyed fan who studied Star Wars' website code, believes the show takes place six short months before the film. Oscar Isaac is lending his voice to Poe Dameron, and Gwendoline Christie returns as Phasma, hopefully getting more screen time than she did in her two films.
