Godzilla vs. Kong Invades World Of Warships With New Update

The Godzilla vs. Kong movie is out now, and Warner Bros. Pictures is celebrating by partnering up with Wargaming to bring the film's universe into World of Warships with a new update. 

While Godzilla and King Kong aren't actually coming to World of Warships (at least, not in the way you might be thinking), their influence can definitely be felt. Both iconic movie staples will be seen represented in the ships below for a limited time only alongside playable commanders. Movie-themed patches, camouflages, flags, and more can also be seen in another film crossover that will kick off sometime in May. 

Representing Team Godzilla, wearing blue and weighing 41,217 tons, is the Japanese battleship Amagi. Representing Team Kong and weighing 37,484 tons is the USS North Carolina, battleship for Kong lovers. For console players, World of Warship: Legends players who choose Godzilla will have a unique battleship by the name of Heat Ray while the Kong fans will have a great counterpart in Primal, a battleship representing the creature's might. 

The Weird Background Art In Your Favorite Vintage Pokémon Cards Are Just Stock Images

The Weird Background Art In Your Favorite Vintage Pokémon Cards Are Just Stock Images

Pokémon is a cultural phenomenon. The famed series has been adapted into multiple forms of media: television shows and movies, manga, and games. But who remembers collecting Pokémon card packs back in the day (long before the card game gained traction)? I do, although I never learned how to actually play. Apparently that uncanny background art from classic Pokémon cards — you know, the scenic environments with vast meadows and far off trees that never meshed well the cartoony aesthetic of the featured Pokémon — was just pulled from a collection of stock images.

Last night I managed to find a bunch of source images used as backgrounds in Pokemon cards, here's a few of them. pic.twitter.com/NMJ6VaSqOa

Twitter user Fanamel scoured the deepest corners of the internet to find the true mythical origins of Pokémon background art so that we wouldn’t have to. According to Fanamel, the compilation of backdrops comes from a stock image series called Datacraft Sozaijiten. “This series is used in a lot of Japanese media and Nintendo games which is how I found them,” reads Fanamel’s tweet. You can watch them work their magic in the short video above. Even the hilarious “Imposter Professor Oak” card, which appears to just have a picture of a metal wall as a background, comes from the Datacraft Sozaijiten collection. 

The Mass Effect Garrus Body Pillow Is Back And Available Now

The Mass Effect Garrus Body Pillow Is Back And Available Now

The Mass Effect Garrus body pillow started out as an April Fool's joke years ago and turned into a real thing through Jinx. Now it's back, and its arrival on April Fool's day is poetic perfection

There are a million and one reasons to love the Mass Effect trilogy, but one of them was the fact that the game offered friendships and relationships that were intimately crafted to bring the RPG aspect of the game to even more immersive heights. One of those romances is Garrus Vakarian, a former C-Sec officer turned renegade badass that could either be Commander Shepard's best bro or their lovah! While we can't have the real Garrus quite yet (we can dream), the body pillow that was available a few years ago is back through the re-launched BioWare Gear Store. 

I, uh, may or may not have purchased this when it came out a few years ago even though I'm married. I have zero regrets. It's always funny when jokes end up becoming a real product. Razer saw this with their RGB toaster that eventually became a real thing, and this body pillow was a huge hit with fans and people that just honestly thought it was funny.

Resident Evil Movie Reboot Delayed To November

Resident Evil Movie Reboot Delayed To November

Resident Evil: Welcome to Racoon City, the upcoming reboot of the Resident Evil film franchise, has been delayed. The film was originally scheduled to premiere on September 3 and will now arrive on November 24.

Sony, who is distributing the film, has not given a specific reason for the delay. Filming has already wrapped up but Variety points out that September 3 is the same day that Disney/Marvel’s Shang-Chi and The Legend of the Ten Rings will hit theaters. There’s a decent chance that, as huge and as popular of a film franchise that Resident Evil is, Sony didn’t want to try its luck against a Marvel joint. That's all conjecture of course as any number of factors could have played a role. 

As previously reported, Resident Evil: Welcome to Racoon City takes the series back to basics. The film takes place during the events of the first two games and will feature both Spencer Mansion and the Racoon City Police Department. Johannes Roberts (47 Meters Down: Uncaged) sits in the director’s chair and also wrote the film.

Outriders - Review In Progress

Outriders - Review In Progress

Review codes for Outriders went out a day before launch, so I haven't been able to explore every nook and cranny of People Can Fly's cooperative shooter/RPG, but from what I have played, I can say I'm enjoying my time with it immensely. This game is chaos in the best possible way, evoking thoughts of games like Borderlands, Gears of War, and People Can Fly's other original title, Bulletstorm. 

I love shooters and RPGs, and the setup of Outriders amalgamates these genres. The experience is macabre; it has a dark narrative that centers on survival, the ability to adapt, and the journey to proving you're the biggest badass on the playground. That storyline is more immersive than I expected, and while it takes a little bit to pick up, it eventually becomes a cacophony of in-your-face action. That action coincides with a tale that rests within sci-fi fantasy but holds a modicum of truth regarding human instincts and how we react when there is nothing left to lose and everything to lose at the same time.

Battle Blocky Bugs In Earth Defense Force: World Brothers This May

Battle Blocky Bugs In Earth Defense Force: World Brothers This May

Remember when two Earth Defense Force games were announced last June? One of them was World Brothers, a more cartoony take on what’s already an absurd, over-the-top franchise. Developer Yuke’s and D3 Publisher has dropped a new trailer revealing the summer release date and showcases more of the game's blockier take on bug-slaying. 

World Brother’s launches May 27 and is now coming to PC in addition to PS4 and Switch. The game is still all about blasting giant bugs as well as robots and aliens, but that action is rendered in more lighthearted voxel graphics. Personally, I think the look works for the series, and it’s especially nice if you’re sensitive to looking at giant, realistic bugs (including spiders). Take a look at the new release date trailer below to see if you agree.

Remedy Posts April Fool's Joke With Trailer Showcasing Control On PS1, And Now We Want It

It's April Fool's Day, which means nothing is sacred and everything is a lie. While we're celebrating with the return of Game Infarcer, Remedy Entertainment decided to celebrate by joking that you can now play Control on PlayStation 1. When the studio shared a trailer of what could Control would look like on PS1, they accidentally made us all really want it. 

The team behind Control took to Twitter to share their own contribution to April 1 and the replies show that I am very much not alone in being interested in this demake: 

Okay, you kid, but I'd definitely take a short demake.

This Resident Evil Cosplayer Takes Lady Dimitrescu Cosplay To A Whole New Level

Resident Evil Village looks cool and all, but what we all can't stop talking about is the Big Tall Vampire Lady, also known as Lady Dimitrescu. This massively tall character took the gaming world by storm – it even took over the KFC Dating Sim game – and now one Resident Evil cosplayer is upping the ante when it comes to Lady Dimitrescu cosplay (not that cosplay is a competition, as long as you're having fun!). 

The cosplayer in question is Candy with the wonderful photography and makeup done by @MilliganVick. The result from this pairing? A cosplay so good it could be in a movie: 

So we finally meet. Альсина Димитреску.#re8 #residentevil8 #residentevilvillage #dimitrescu #ladydimitrescu #cosplay #косплей #cosplaygirl #residentevil @officialcapcom @capcomusa Photo and makeup @milliganvick ❤️ pic.twitter.com/Ry4luu1M8P

Maneater: Truth Quest Adds A New Conspiracy To Unravel This Summer

Maneater: Truth Quest Adds A New Conspiracy To Unravel This Summer

Maneater, a game that in itself feels like an April Fool’s joke (in a good way), is getting its first story expansion this summer. Truth Quest picks up where the original game’s story left off and sees players unravel a dark military conspiracy. 

Your bull shark hero protagonist returns as does journalist Trip Westhaven, who has been driven a bit mad since the events of the base campaign. He's on a mission to prove to his fans that the wacky shark abilities players put on display are the result of a massive government cover-up and falls down rabbit hole of conspiracies to do it. Truth Quest opens a new region of Port Clovis for players to explore and gives them a new bag of tricks as players once again eat and evolve their way through the plot.

The level cap has been raised to 40, and the shark gains five new organ evolutions with one extra organ slot unlocked when players hit the new level cap. Your maximum shark size has also increased. New evolved hunt creatures as well as a new “Uber” Apex Predator prowl the deep. There are also new threats from above as military forces will now attack from beaches and fortifications and helicopters can strike from the sky. If that’s not enough, Bounty Hunters gain new weapons and vehicles. Truth Quest also adds five new Bounty Bosses.

Capcom is latching onto your love for the tall vampire like one of the oversized leeches from Resident Evil 0. In Resident Evil IX, Lady D is back to cause some trouble. Better yet, our favorite vampire (sorry Paul Rudd) is bigger than ever, and you won’t believe all the hats she’s going to wear. You can see her upcoming exploits in this month’s Game Infarcer.
