New Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice Trailer Sees The Wolf Take On Monstrous Creatures

about X hours ago from

A new trailer for From Software's upcoming game, Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, has been released. The video showcases more of the abilities the protagonist, The Wolf, will have at his disposal, as well as the fierce enemies and bosses he'll encounter. You can watch it above.

The trailer begins with The Wolf facing off against a massive bull-like creature--its horns are a log tied to its head, and both ends are on fire. The bull crashes through and destroys every bit of the environment in its path, but just before it can crush The Wolf, his prey transforms into feathers swirling within a cloud of shadow and teleports out of the way. From there, the hunter becomes the hunted.

The rest of the trailer depicts The Wolf's ongoing battle with the more human enemies found in Sekiro, and the shinobi takes them on with a mixture of stealth kills and acrobatic counters. The video also showcases some of the environments in the game, such as dilapidated fortresses and icy mountains. The trailer ends with an amazing sequence as The Wolf battles against a yeti-like creature, only to finally wear the beast down and decapitate it. Sekiro may not be another Dark Souls or Bloodborne, but From Software's new game is certainly going to be just as bloody and violent as the developer's previous titles.

Fortnite Dance Lawsuits Dropped--For Now

about X hours ago from

Epic has been the target of numerous lawsuits recently over its massively popular battle royale game, Fortnite. Last year, Backpack Kid, rapper 2 Milly, and Fresh Prince of Bel-Air star Alfonso Ribeiro all filed suits against the company alleging it stole their signature dance moves for the game's emotes, and now all three plaintiffs have dropped their claims--at least, temporarily.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Ribeiro has dropped his suit against Epic after the US Supreme Court unanimously decided that a person cannot file a copyright infringement claim until the US Copyright Office has granted or rejected a copyright application.

Ribeiro attempted to copyright his famous Carlton dance after first bringing a suit against Epic back in December. However, the US Copyright Office declined to grant him one back in February because it was "a simple routine that is not registrable as a choreographic work."

New Anthem Update Fixed Loot Bug, Much To Player's Annoyance

about X hours ago from

For a brief period on Friday, March 8, a bug in Anthem was causing players to receive above average amounts of Masterwork and Legendary items. However, the issue was quickly rectified with a rather large update, Patch 1.0.3, which reinstated Anthem's grind. As you can probably surmise, Anthem's playerbase is not happy about the bug being patched.

According to Kotaku, when the bug was first discovered, players went to Reddit to ask BioWare to keep the changes in the game. The bug might have stuck around for a bit longer too, but Patch 1.0.3--which was originally scheduled to go live March 9--surprisingly went up a day early. "We're dropping the new [Anthem] patch ahead of schedule so you can all benefit from the updates and fixes, including improved stability on all platforms," EA said in a tweet. And unfortunately for those who were enjoying the increased drop rate for Masterwork and Legendary items, the update just happened to patch the bug as well.

Netflix tends to dump the majority of its new offerings of movies--ones that already had a theatrical release--right at the beginning of the month. So what about the rest of the March? Well, this is when Netflix drops its original series and movies, and there are a few you'll want to check out.

On March 12, part six of Terrace House: Opening New Doors comes to the service. Japan's reality TV series is completely different than any reality show that is made in America. Terrace House is soothing, relaxing, and there aren't your traditional reality show staples like fights, loud arguments, or delusional singers. It's a group of people living in a house, going to work and school, and creating relationships with each other--and no, they're not all sexual in nature. Then, a group of famous Japanese folks comment on what's going on, and everything about this series is the best. You have a lot to catch up before you get to the latest installment, so get cracking.

about X hours ago from

The start of a new week means we'll have a brand-new batch of game deals at Best Buy--but this isn't just any old week. Sunday, March 10--also known as Mario Day--kicked off a week of celebration for Nintendo's lovable mustached plumber, and as a result, several retailers are running major discounts on Mario games all week. That includes Best Buy, where you can save 50% on a select Mario game when you buy a Nintendo Switch. Best Buy has four games left to choose from as part of this deal: Super Mario Odyssey, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Mario Tennis Aces, and Super Mario Party. This deal is only available through Saturday while supplies last, so if you've been planning to buy a Switch, now's a good time to pick one up.

For those who already own a Switch, you can still get Mario games at a discount this week. Like other retailers, Best Buy is selling digital downloads for various Mario games for just $40; however, the codes seem to be unavailable as of this time. We'll update this post if that changes.

about X hours ago from

WWE's Fastlane is a bit of a troublesome PPV. The show is limited in what it can do, since the biggest wrestling event of the year, Wrestlemania, is right around the corner. However, no matter what the results for the show were, Fastlane had a few important moments you know before heading into this week's WWE programming.

We're taking a look at the PPV as a whole and getting down to the nitty gritty of what really matters. If you're looking for something a bit more in-depth, we have a full review of every match from Fastlane for you to check out as well. Here's what you need to know about Fastlane.

After The Usos defeated Shane McMahon and The Miz in a battle for the Smackdown Tag Team Championship, the two celebrated at ringside with Miz's ever-present father. However, Shane turned on the Miz, beating him up and putting him in a choke. Shane also got in the face of Miz's father, grabbing his head. It's safe to say that this tag team is done, and Shane will face Miz at Wrestlemania.

Pokemon Go Dev's Harry Potter Game Opens Pre-Registration For Some

about X hours ago from

After months of silence, Niantic and Warner Bros. have revealed some new details on their upcoming Harry Potter mobile game, Wizards Unite. The title is scheduled to launch for Android and iOS devices later this year, but some prospective wizards are able to sign up for it right now.

Pre-registration for Harry Potter: Wizards Unite is now open for Android users on Google Play, giving those who are interested in the title a chance to sign-up and potentially receive early access. Pre-registration is not yet available on the App Store, but the developers tell iOS players to "stay tuned for more updates" on that front.

Harry Potter: Wizards Unite is a Pokemon Go-like take on J.K. Rowling's beloved series. As a member of Statute of Secrecy Task Force, players must explore the real world and locate Foundables--important people and items in the wizarding world--and dispel the Confoundable magic that's trapping them.

Doom Annihilation Is A Direct-To-Video Doom Movie, And Looks Exactly Like What You'd Expect

about X hours ago from

Doom has already had a big-screen adaptation, starring none other than Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson. That 2005 movie was panned and essentially disavowed by Johnson, but now another movie is on the way: Doom Annihilation.

This film is not destined for the multiplex, though. It's a direct-to-video movie, not connected to the other film, written and directed by Tony Giglio (who was also behind the direct-to-video movie S.W.A.T.: Under Siege). It follows the lore of Doom relatively closely, as a group of Marines respond to a distress call from a Martian moon base, only to discover it crawling with demons. Chaos ensues.

It's a concept that lends itself to camp. Check out the brief teaser-trailer below for a look at the marines, a demon or two, and some hellish dialogue.
