Epic Game Of Thrones Season 8 Battle Scene Teased, And It Sounds Brutal

about X hours ago from

We've known for a while now that Game of Thrones Season 8 will have an epic battle scene, and now the producers have shared more details about it. Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, episode director Miguel Sapochnik, who previously directed the Battle of the Bastards episode, confirmed this new episode will feature a battle between familiar living characters and the Night King and his army. The showdown has been teased since the show's beginning, and now it's finally coming.

In the episode, which chronicles the Battle of Winterfell, familiar characters like Jon Snow, Daenerys Targaryen, Sansa Stark, Arya Stark, and Brienne of Tarth are outnumbered as they fight against the supernatural foes. According to EW, it's the "longest consecutive battle sequence ever committed to film." At 40 minutes, the Helm's Deep battle from The Lord of the Rings: Two Towers was the longest battle sequence that Sapochnik said he could find in cinema history.

Co-executive producer Bryan Cogman spoke about the epic battle scene, calling it unprecedented for TV or film.

Assassin's Creed Odyssey Is Cheaper Than It's Ever Been Right Now (US)

Released in October 2018, Assassin's Creed Odyssey brought players to Ancient Greece and gave them an engaging story with compelling characters and choices, two unique protagonists to choose from, and a massive open-world to explore. Odyssey is a worthy follow-up to 2017's Assassin's Creed Origins, and fortunately for anyone who doesn't already own it, the game is drastically cheaper now than it was in October.

You can buy Assassin's Creed Odyssey's standard edition at its lowest price at GameStop, where it's listed for $20. That's a full $40 price drop from its $60 launch price. On GameStop, both PS4 and Xbox One versions of the game are only $20 as part of the retailer's "Tax Refun" sale, which has huge discounts on games, consoles, and accessories right now. GameStop's "Tax Refun" sale runs through March 5, so you only have a couple of days to snag this incredible deal.

With its expansive map and a strong narrative that's heavily impacted by player choice, Assassin's Creed Odyssey was one of the biggest game releases of last year, and GameSpot's Alessandro Fillari gave it an 8 in his Assassin's Creed Odyssey review.

Luke Perry, who first shot to fame on Beverly Hills 90210 and was most recently starring on The CW's Riverdale as Fred Andrew, dad to Archie (KJ Apa) has died at 52 years old. His passing comes after the actor suffered what CNN calls "a massive stroke."

"He was surrounded by his children Jack and Sophie, fiancé Wendy Madison Bauer, ex-wife Minnie Sharp, mother Ann Bennett, step-father Steve Bennett, brother Tom Perry, sister Amy Coder, and other close family and friends," according to a statement. "The family appreciates the outpouring of support and prayers that have been extended to Luke from around the world, and respectfully request privacy in this time of great mourning. No further details will be released at this time."

News of Perry suffering a stroke was first announced Wednesday, February 27. At that time, it was reported that he would remain hospitalized and "under observations," according to People.

Fallout: New Vegas Dev's Share Interesting Lore Detail About New Game The Outer Worlds

about X hours ago from

The Outer Worlds is the next RPG from Obsidian, and gives one of the most experienced studios in the industry an opportunity to play in a new space-faring setting. If you have some nagging questions about the game, chances are co-directors Tim Cain and Leonard Boyarsky addressed them in a lengthy new Q&A session.

The Game Informer podcast hosted the Q&A with questions from fans. It delves into details from the esoteric to the mundane, with an occasional diversion regarding their history establishing the Fallout franchise. A few choice tidbits include the level cap of 30, and the fact that weapons and armor will have modding but no crafting system.

Some of the most detail comes from implications surrounding the story. The duo say that they saw at least one fan speculate pretty accurately on what's changed in the alternate timeline the game takes place in, and it may not be what you'd expect. They suggest that one of the key turning points in history was the assassination of President William McKinley in 1901. Without that event, the alternate history speculates, Teddy Roosevelt wouldn't have taken office and implemented a trust busting agenda. This suggests that Roosevelt failing to break up large corporations is largely responsible for the alternate history presented in The Outer Worlds.
