The God Of Thunder Returns In New Team Thor Clip

Last summer, Captain America: Civil War took the world by storm, blowing past one billion dollars at the global box office. Pretty much every Marvel Cinematic Universe character showed up to take part in the grand battle. The most notable exception was Thor, played by Chris Hemsworth.

Taika Waititi, director of the upcoming Thor: Ragnarok, created a satirical short film, entitled Team Thor, to humorously explain what the Asgardian God of Thunder was up to during his time away from The Avengers. Apparently, Thor was laying low with his roommate, an Australian office worker named Darryl.

While we eagerly await the November release of Ragnarok, which will see Thor and Hulk fighting in gladiatorial combat, we can catch up with Thor and Darryl in Team Thor, Part 2, which will be included on the Blu-ray release of Doctor Strange. Marvel has released a clip, which shows the Norse deity bickering with Darryl about how his half of the rent will be paid.

Valve Patches 10-Year-Old Team Fortress 2 Bug

Valve Patches 10-Year-Old Team Fortress 2 Bug

"I totally made that shot!" "There's no way that hit me!"

We've all had those infuriating moments during online matches where the shots just don't seem to line up. A newly-patched bug in Valve's multiplayer first-person shooter, Team Fortress 2, may lend some justice to these claims after all.

First demonstrated in a video by Nicknine in January of this year, the bug was further explained by Reddit user sigsev in a comment and additional video. According to them, if a player started as the scout, heavy, or sniper class, then switched to the soldier, pyro, demoman, engineer, medic, or spy class, there would be a server-side discrepancy between the character's avatar and hitbox due to differences in the classes' programming. Once the deviation between animation and hit detection began, it couldn't be fixed, meaning what players saw and what the server detected wouldn't match up.

Bungie continues to update is online multiplayer shooter, and the latest hotfix for Destiny has a significant impact on players' PvP experience. 

According to Bungie's notes, the rebalancing efforts for the sandbox apply across the whole game, but will have important ramifications in the Crucible.

80 New Gold & Silver Pokémon And Much More Coming To Pokémon Go This Week

Pokémon Go is getting a big update this week that adds Johto Pokémon to the wild, trainer accessories, new berry types, and more.

Niantic announced the update this morning with an ambiguous "later this week" timeframe for release. Along with the 80 new Gold & Silver Pokémon in the wild, the UI will be getting some tweaks, and there will be "new gameplay mechanics for Trainers to master." Trainers will also be able to collect new Pinap and Nanab berries. Pinap berries reward twice as much candy upon capture if successful. Nanab berries slow Pokémon movement.

Additional updates include new accessories, hats, shirts, and pants options for your avatar, and the addition of evolution items. How those will work is currently unclear.
