Objects In Space Review - Adrift

Space, as I'm sure we're all aware, is incomprehensibly vast. It can be difficult to fathom the scope of large nations in earnest, to say nothing of the endless expanse of the universe. While the vastness of space and its inherent loneliness has been explored time and again in fiction, Objects in Space contributes to that conversation by capturing the beauty of the mundane as you helm a solitary freighter drifting to and fro in a desolate void. Moreover, it positions itself as a rework of '90s adventure games, but with the added draw of real-time combat and problem solving as you and your hauler make your way.

Objects in Space immediately taps your imagination of a grand adventure to the stars. You are one of the first truly interstellar explorers, launched aboard the mighty Cassandra--a colony-spawning vessel with nearly a million inhabitants. Alongside dozens of support craft, the mission of this mega-ship was to create a jumpgate, allowing instant transit back to Earth. Unfortunately, your destination, the Apollo Cluster, was all but barren, putting a major kink in the plan. Even worse, due to some unexpected anomalies, a few of the accompanying ships in Cassandra's support fleet arrived decades later than intended--including yours.

Bandai Namco has released a new trailer for the Tale of a Timeless Tome DLC for Ni no Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom. The DLC is scheduled to release on March 19, and the new trailer details what the expansion will add to the game. The trailer can be watched below.

Tale of a Timeless Tome adds a new character to Ni no Kuni II: a mysterious rabbit who's wearing a suit. According to the trailer, protagonist Evan and his allies encounter this new character in "a curious place where people's memories mix and mingle." The trailer gives off a fantastical Alice in Wonderland vibe, before taking a darker turn and introducing The Nightmares, which are the enemies threatening to destroy this charming world.

To fight this threat, Evan gains access to several new magical abilities that he learns through The Wizard's Companion. The trailer also showcases him relying on Pikman-like creatures in combat, a new method of fighting called spritecraft that Evan learns through Martha's Methods. The Nightmares aren't the only new threat Evan encounters either, as the trailer also showcases an arena called Solosseum Slog where the young king and his allies must battle through waves of challenging enemies.

about X hours ago from

Avengers directors Joe and Anthony Russo have announced the first details on their first non-MCU film. According to Variety, Spider-Man actor Tom Holland is in discussions to have a starring role in the new Russo brothers movie, Cherry.

The brothers are directing the movie, with Jessica Goldberg (Hulu's The Path) serving as the writer.

The movie is based on the 2018 book "Cherry" by Nico Walker; it tells the story of a former Army medic who comes home addicted to opiates and starts robbing banks to help pay for his habit. The book is based on Walker's real life but it contains many fictional elements. In real life, Walker was captured after executing multiple heists, and is currently serving 11 years in federal prison; he's scheduled to get out in November 2020. Walker wrote the book on a typewriter in prison. Holland is presumably being eyed to play him.

New Fallout 76 Expansion Delayed, But Not For Very Long

about X hours ago from

Bethesda has announced the first piece of its three-part 2019 roadmap for Fallout 76 is delayed. Don't worry, though, it's only been delayed by a day.

"We are moving the release of Wild Appalachia back one day on all platforms," Bethesda tweeted. "We just need a little more time to brew. Experience the new quest, crafting station & much more starting now on March 13." Wild Appalachia was first announced on Fallout 76's 100 day anniversary, alongside the game's two other major follow-up expansions for 2019, Nuclear Winter and Wastelanders.

Wild Appalachia includes two new quests and a game mode, as well as several features. The two quests, titled Shear Terror and Ever Upwards, offer new stories for you to pursue, with the former focusing on mythical monsters and the latter having you join the Pioneer Scouts and earning merit badges. The new game mode, called Survival, is a PvP variation of Fallout 76's Adventure mode. Of all the new features, brewing and distilling your own Nukashine recipes is the most notable, but the expansion also includes a means for exchanging unwanted legendary gear for new legendaries and setting up your own store for you to sell items to other players.
