Report: Spider-Man Universe Movie Silver & Black Cancelled

As part of the deal Sony made with Marvel Studios over the character Spider-Man, Sony planned to use the inevitable success of a Marvel Cinematic Universe-tied Spider-Man movie to make other movies in the universe of Spider-Man Homecoming. One of these is the upcoming Venom, while another planned project was Silver & Black, a buddy-cop movie with Black Cat and Silver Sable.

According to Variety, the movie has been put on ice and split apart to two separate movies. That means that separate Black Cat and Silver Sable movies are joining the currently in-development Morbius, Kraven the Hunter, Silk, Jackpot, and Nightwatch movies in Sony's Spider-Man universe roster at various states of progress.

“We believe Black Cat is enough of her own character with a great backstory and a canon of material to draw from to justify her own film,” president of Columbia Pictures Sanford Panitch told Variety.

GameMaker Studio 2 Now Officially Supports Switch With Export Button

GameMaker Studio 2 Now Officially Supports Switch With Export Button

It was announced earlier this year that Nintendo was officially supporting GameMaker on the Switch, an engine used for games like Undertale, Minit, Hyper Light Drifter, and more. The support opened the door for a lot of indie games coming, as evidenced by Switch ports of Undertale, Minit, and Hyper Light Drifter. When the deal was announced, both Nintendo and GameMaker company YoYo Games planned to make it even easier to get games on Switch by hoping to integrate a "Port to Switch" button.

The new version of GameMaker Studio 2 is in beta and finally incorporates that useful option.

If you're planning to make a Switch version of a GameMaker game, it no longer has to be done independently of the rest of your work. You do still need a Switch license and be approved as a Nintendo developer beforehand, but the work was at one point a lot harder than it is now.

Wear The Dragon Quest VIII Hero's Threads In Dragon Quest XI

Square Enix has announced that American owners of Dragon Quest XI will find some equipment in their starting bag that hits Dragon Quest fans right in the nostalgia. You can dress Dragon Quest XI's Luminary in the clothes of Dragon Quest VIII's hero from the get-go.

When you start Dragon Quest XI, you'll find two items in your bag: Trodain bandanna and Trodain togs. Putting on these two items named after the pivotal castle town in Dragon Quest VIII gets you Eight's clothes, though they're just clothes, so you're still the Luminary. The clothes are slightly better than your starting kit otherwise, but won't last you the whole game. However, you will get a recipe to create more powerful versions of the clothes for late game content.

You can check out the trailer for the costume below.

New Dragon Ball Super: Broly Character Posters Confirm Goten And Trunks Appearances

New Dragon Ball Super: Broly Character Posters Confirm Goten And Trunks Appearances

Dragon Ball Super's next movie, Dragon Ball Super: Broly, has been hyped since release. While we knew that the movie would at least include Broly, Goku, Vegeta, and Freeza, a new set of character posters released by TOEI also confirm Trunks, Goten, and Bulma are involved.

In a story about the history of the Saiyan race, it makes sense that Trunks and Goten would also get some screen time, but Bulma is an inclusion people are keeping their eye on. While she remains an important character in the Dragon Ball universe, Bulma's longtime voice actress Hiromi Tsuru died last November, having voiced the character since her first appearance in 1986. She is being replaced by veteran voice actress Aya Hisakawa, who is best known for voicing Sailor Mercury in the classic show Sailor Moon.

While Akira Toriyama is writing the script and doing the movie's character designs, TOEI has confirmed that Tatsuya Nagamine will be directing. Nagamine is best known as the director of One Piece Film Z, one of the better-liked One Piece movies. Dragon Ball Super: Broly releases later this year in Japan with Funimation planning to air the movie in American theaters in January.

Monster Hunter: World Gets A Rathian-Sized Opening Day On Steam

Monster Hunter: World Gets A Rathian-Sized Opening Day On Steam

A long seven months after its console release, PC players are finally getting to jump into Monster Hunter: World. And despite this being the first time a Monster Hunter game has appeared on the system, it's received a massive welcoming committee; over 240 thousand people were online concurrently shortly after release. By player count, the game is by far Steam's biggest new release of 2018.

We said that the PC version "provides the same great hunting and gathering loops console players dove into earlier this year," with the added benefit of flexible resolutions and frame rates, and hugely shortened load times. Although the system requirements are relatively high, that clearly hasn't stopped hundreds of thousands of people from digging into the game's deep systems. 

Much of Monster Hunter: World's lasting appeal has come from challenging new monsters designed to be taken on by full hunting parties. Capcom has promised that these will be trotted out for PC players soon, which should hopefully maintain the game's high engagement.
