PS4 Spider-Man Gets His Own Comic Series

The PS4 Spider-Man, who many are confusingly calling Marvel's Spider-Man but that seems to make it even less clear which one we're talking about, has been making the rounds since the game's release earlier this year. The white spider suit had a cameo in the seminal Into the Spider-verse movie released last week. Insomniac's Peter Parker even got his own storyline in the Spidergeddon comic arc, where he realized there is a dimension where Spider Cop exists. Now, another PS4 Spider-Man comic adaptation is beginning, titled City of War.

The new comic arc will cover the story of the games, but also the three DLC chapters that have just been released. For fans of the game, Marvel also promises there will be new content, so it won't just be a retread for content you have already played through.

Fresh Prince's Alfonso Ribeiro Files Lawsuit Against Epic Over Fortnite Dances

Fresh Prince's Alfonso Ribeiro Files Lawsuit Against Epic Over Fortnite Dances

The question of whether dances are freely available to be reproduced without concern has been fairly open over the years, but Epic's Fortnite seems to have brought the discussion up to a more mainstream level. A number of artists and critics have chided Epic for stealing dances from people and cultures to profit from, but until 2 Milly recently filed an official complaint, no one had decided to test these waters. Now another popular dance is being put in the spotlight.

Alfonso Ribeiro, who played Carlton in the 1990s NBC sitcom The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, is suing Epic over a dance called Fresh. In the TV show, Carlton would exemplify his lack of dancing skills by swinging his arms side to side and snapping, usually to music by Tom Jones. The Fortnite dance is immediately recognizable as the Carlton's dance from The Fresh Prince, with even the name evoking the show's title.

Ribeiro's law firm is alleging that Epic stole his dance and recreated it in Fortnite and is now profiting off of it from the game's store. He was also mentioned in 2 Milly's lawsuit by name as another dance creator whose moves were stolen.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Glitch Causes Infinite Assist Trophies

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Glitch Causes Infinite Assist Trophies

Even the most polished games have unforeseen bugs and it seems like Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is no exception. A new bug discovered spawns an infinite number of assist trophies, resulting in more Knuckles than a 3D Sonic game on screen at once. Whoops.

The glitch, which was discovered by YouTuber TheAfrowJow happens when Isabelle or Villager use their pocket item skills on the same assist trophy at the same time. Since spacing and timing can be an issue, using Isabelle's fishing hook Side-Special makes this easier to do. The player who does grab it gets stuck repeating the assist trophy summoning animation while more and more assist trophies pour in.

The glitch will probably get patched out as soon as someone from the developer team notices, which likely won't be too long. In the meantime, unless you're actively coordinating to make it happen, it's pretty hard to actually do this, so I wouldn't worry about someone spamming Shovel Knights into your online match to make it to the top of the Global Smash charts. Though with that many Shovel Knight appearances, maybe that makes Smash an indie game.

YouTube Let's Play Group Super Best Friends Abruptly Disbands

YouTube Let's Play Group Super Best Friends Abruptly Disbands

Super Best Friends, a troupe of YouTube Let's Players known primarily for mocking Quantic Dream games, officially ended their channel on Sunday morning with a video announcing their departure. Perhaps fitting for an account with a name extolling their friendship, the reason given was that two of the three participants were no longer actual friends and it put a strain on their ability to do the job.

The channel began in 2011, when then-QA tester Matthew Kowalewski uploaded a video titled Street Fighter Stupidity, compiling out-of-context and generally bad scenes from the Street Fighter cartoon in the 1990s. From there, Kowalewski partnered with an associate named Patrick Boivin for the gimmick of one angry player and one naive innocent one to make highly edited videos of gameplay. The two chose the name "Two Best Friends Play" ironically, but became friends later down the line.

The channel had been going strong for a number of years, adding their other friends Woolie Madden and Liam Allen-Miller to their Let's Play stable, though the latter left a few years back to pursue his own streaming channel under the name Rising Superstar. The decision to call it quits this weekend came abruptly in the middle of a few different games and showed no indication of ending as the members had been talking about future plans for the channel earlier in the week.

Pillars Of Eternity II Still Coming To Consoles In 2019

Early this year, Obsidian announced their top-down RPG Pillars of Eternity II would also be on consoles and not just PC. The studio hoped to bring the game to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Switch before the end of 2018, but anyone with access to a calendar can tell you that is becoming increasingly unlikely. While it may have slipped out of this year, Obsidian has clarified that the game is still coming and it's doing so to all the platforms it was announced for.

Hidden at the bottom of a larger blog post about the Forgotten Sanctum DLC, the developer posted a note about the game's upcoming console releases.

"As we stated, our partners at Grip Digital have been hard at work, and Deadfire will be releasing on the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Nintendo Switch in 2019," the post reads. "We are pleased to also announce that the console edition will ship with all expansions, updates, and free DLC's included at launch! We don't have an exact date for you yet, but as soon as we have one, we will let you know!"

Street Fighter V Brings Back Evil Ryu As Kage

Capcom has announced a new character for Street Fighter V, and you can play as him right now.

The introduction of Kage, who looks to be a more intensified and renamed version of Evil Ryu, would have been a nice surprise to cap off Capcom Cup, except... the update leaked ahead of time. By the time Capcom announced the character, players had already downloaded the update and discovered the character. From what we've seen of the character so far, he seems to have a moveset similar to this Street Fighter IV iteration, including the return of his signature Axe Kick.

Of course, the character also brings with him two alternate costumes for players to wear.

“We’re gonna be finding talent, hiring talent,” he tells the outlet. He says that he's particularly interested in putting together teams for Fortnite, Call of Duty, Overwatch, and Counter Strike.
