Marvel Comics Chief Stan Lee Passes Away At 95

Stan Lee, the former editor-in-chief, publisher, and chairman of Marvel comics has passed away at the age of 95.

Lee started working in comic books in 1939, quickly developing a mission statement to add more depth to the world of superheroes dominated by do-gooders with uncomplicated motivations. He saw an opportunity to develop superheroes with flaws and pathos, struggling with demons both personal and actual. Lee used this foundation to found Marvel comics in 1961 with Jack Kirby and the two created some of the most well-known and well-loved characters in media today.

Creating or having a hand in creating properties like Spider-Man, Black Panther, Iron Man, and more establishes a legacy for the comics giant that few will ever be able to measure up to.

Kickstarter For Assassin's Creed Board Game Goes Live Tomorrow

Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood of Venice, a board game adaptation of the Ezio-era Assassin's Creeds, will begin its Kickstarter campaign November 13. The 1-4 player game combines cooperative and tactical gameplay, and comes with miniatures of existing Assassin's Creed characters alongside some new ones made just for the board game. The action takes place in Renaissance Italy between the Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood and Assassin’s Creed Revelations video games.

Board games based on beloved video game franchises are nothing new and often struggle to capture audiences' hearts. The designers at Triton Noir, an independent board game studio, hope to appeal to “both those who are in love with Assassin’s Creed and the tactical infiltration board games enthusiasts”, according to the studio's founder, Thibaud de la Touanne. The company aims to stay faithful to the source material by working closely with the video game designers at Ubisoft, while introducing their own unique touches. These new elements include new characters, events, and surprises yet to be revealed.

Pikachu Is On The Case In The First Trailer For The Detective Pikachu Movie

Warner Bros. Pictures released the first trailer for Pokémon: Detective Pikachu, the live-action film adaptation of the 3DS game Detective Pikachu. The story is set in Ryme City, a crowded metropolis where Pokémon and humans live together, and centers around Tim Goodman whose legendary detective father has mysteriously disappeared.

The trailer shows off the pivotal scene where Tim first meets and understands a Pikachu that has broken into his house in the middle of the night. Ryan Reynolds' voice coming out of the well-known Pokémon sets the humorous tone for the rest of the video. 

Detective Pikachu for the 3DS received middling reviews when it came out in Europe and America back in March. Game Informer's Ben Reeves called it "a bit too elementary" in his review. However, the game's lukewarm reception didn't hinder fans' curiosity about the movie. The film maker even reveal the logo during the opening ceremonies of the 2018 Pokémon World Championships

Echo Combat Releases On Thursday

Echo Combat, the zero-gravity multiplayer shooter from Ready at Dawn, is releasing this week for Oculus Rift. The multiplayer shooter is a companion of sorts to the zero-gravity narrative game, Lone Echo. Getting it is a little tricky, but here are some instructions:

We played the game at E3 2018, and were impressed. Navigation in VR is always tricky, but the team at Ready at Dawn are really onto something with its zero-g movement system.

Report: Valve Working On Its Own VR Headset, May Include A Half-Life VR Title

VR website UploadVR has confirmed with multiple sources that a previous imgur asset leak indeed shows prototypes of an upcoming Valve VR headset separate from the current Vive initiative with partner company HTC.

The device may come with a Half-Life VR title that could be a prequel as well as two Knuckles motion controllers. The unnamed unit also supports a 135° field of view with "roughly the same angular resolution as the current HTC Vive."

That Valve is striking out on with its own VR headset is not surprising given the resources the company has devoted to the technology including its SteamVR platform and upcoming titles.
