Star Wars Episode VIII Will Answer A Big Question

Star Wars Episode VIII Will Answer A Big Question

One of the biggest mysteries introduced in The Force Awakens is the identity of Rey's parents. While there is plenty of speculation about who they might be (including our theories), we still don't have a definitive answer. That's going to change with the release of Episode VIII next year.

In an interview with Vulture, actress Daisy Ridley (who plays protagonist Rey) was asked about the possibility of a particular character being Rey's father. She didn't give a firm answer one way or another, but said, "“We will see in a year. Just sit tight on that question.” 

Star Wars Episode VIII releases on December 15, 2017, so Ridley's answer implies that the next installment will put an end to the debate of this hotly debated topic.

You'll Never Get This Coin In Super Mario 64

Some completionists are going to be very sad today when they find out that some things are just out of reach. UncommentatedPannen's obsession with Super Mario 64 has unearthed a coin that spawns in just the wrong way to make it impossible to collect. That sounds like a simple novelty, but the theories about the underlying reasons behind it are a rabbit hole that even hardcore Mario fans will find intimidating. Learn all about it in the video below:(Please visit the site to view this media)

Downed Battlefield 1 Zeppelin Turns Into Fire Tornado

Though Battlefield 1 sets out to put players in the midst of World War I, developer DICE probably didn't intend for this Zeppelin to hit a singularity during its fateful fall towards Earth.

Sadly, this anomaly did not happen to Matt Bertz while he reviewed Battlefield 1, which you can read here.

Version 1.4 of The Division is nearly upon us. Ubisoft already revealed some big changes planned for the latest update, but with the impending release, now players can get a full list of the alterations in store.

This update is so substantial that the development team put the upcoming DLC plans on hold in order to get the core game's mechanics in order. The Division's official site spells out every last detail, but the big additions are the new World Tiers that control the difficulty (and rewards) of encounters. Beyond that, players can expect a variety of balance and quality-of-life tweaks, including adjustments to gear, interface, balance, and other areas.
