Captain Marvel Stars Reveal What They Miss About The '90s

about X hours ago from

Captain Marvel isn't just another entry into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. It's the second movie in the company's history taking place decades in the past. The upcoming movie centers around the Earth during a very important decade, the 1990s.

Aside from the super rad '90s-inspired website the movie got, the cast and crew came together to lament the past at a Captain Marvel junket recently. They were asked what they missed about the '90s. Director Ryan Fleck said he missed VHS tapes, while Samuel L. Jackson simply said, "Laserdiscs."

Director Anna Boden remembers a world where we were less connected as she talked about one thing she greatly missed: "Pay phones because then I wouldn't have to check my email all the time," she explained. One thing Brie Larson mentioned was butterfly clips, while Jude Law missed the band The Verve, who had a hit with their song "Freshman."

Pokemon Go March Community Day Details Announced

Pokemon Go March Community Day Details Announced

Niantic has announced the first details for next month's Pokemon Go Community Day. The event is scheduled to take place on Saturday, March 23, and as usual it'll only run for three hours. This time, however, Niantic is doing things a little differently with the event hours.

Up until now, every previous Community Day has taken place during a window of time designated for an entire region; March's event, however, will run everywhere from 3-6 PM local time. This should make it much easier to remember when the event is happening, as you won't need to convert the event hours to your time zone as you had to in the past.

Niantic has also revealed the featured Pokemon for March's Community Day. This time, it'll be the Gen 3 Grass-type starter Treecko. Throughout the event, Treecko will spawn more frequently in the wild than it normally does. Based on past Community Days, players will presumably also have a chance of finding a Shiny Treecko.

The Captain Marvel Cast Has A Problem With Goose The Cat

Captain Marvel is still a couple weeks away from flying into theaters as the first Marvel Cinematic Universe movie of 2019, but we're learning a few things about what it was like to work on the set. More specifically, what it was like to work with Reggie, the cat who plays Goose in the upcoming film.

During a press junket for Captain Marvel, the cast revealed that their lovable, furry castmate wasn't the best to work with for the two human stars of the movie. "No, I am not a cat person," Samuel L. Jackson explained. "But I'm also not a dog person or a fish person either... Reggie is like most animals that people bring to the set that have been trained to do this, that, or the other. He's snack orientated. He shows off. You give him something to eat, you talk softly and nice to him, give him something to eat again. There were actually four cats, but Reggie did the majority of the heavy lifting, most of the time."

While Jackson put aside his animal bias to be a professional on set, the other star of Captain Marvel had severe troubles working with Reggie and the three other cats who played Goose. Jackson explained that Brie Larson had more problems with the cat than he did. "Not personally," Larson explained. "I'm severely allergic. It's not sort of like 'diva,' we couldn't work together."

Fortnite Prisoner Challenges: How To Unlock Prisoner Skin Stages 2, 3, And 4

Only a few days remain in Season 7 of Fortnite, which means time is running out to complete any outstanding challenges from this season. If you've managed to finish at least 60 weekly challenges, you'll receive the Legendary Prisoner skin, but it also has a few different variants that you can unlock by completing an additional set of hidden tasks.

As with other Season 7 content, you'll need to complete these Prisoner challenges before the season ends next week on February 28 to unlock the different variants. The game isn't clear as to what these tasks actually are, but they're fairly straightforward once you know where to look.

As you can see in the image above, there are three additional variants for the Prisoner skin on top of its base look, and they must be unlocked in a specific order. The game doesn't outright tell you where to go or what to do to unlock them, but it involves equipping the skin then visiting specific areas of the island and interacting with certain objects.

Anthem: This Is The Most Important Thing The Game Doesn't Tell You

Anthem: This Is The Most Important Thing The Game Doesn't Tell You

You'll shoot a lot of guns as you fly around completing missions in Anthem, but the best and most fun part of combat is using your javelin's special abilities to execute combos with your teammates. These moves do massive damage and create status effects on enemies that can turn the tide of battle, and each kind of javelin suit gets its own benefits from a successful combo. The Ranger suit does serious damage to a single character, the Colossus creates an area-of-effect explosion, the Storm can transfer status effects to multiple enemies, and the Interceptor gets an aura that afflicts any nearby enemy.

The trouble with the combo system in Anthem is that the game isn't super clear on how it works. We've got a complete combo guide to help you make the most of your javelins, but for a top-level understanding of how to execute combos, you just need to know about two things: Primers and Detonators. Primers are abilities that set up a combo; Detonators are abilities that trigger them for massive damage and other effects.

The big question is, how do you know if an ability is a Primer, a Detonator, or neither? Anthem provides that information for you when deciding what gear to add to your javelin's loadout, if you know where to look. You'll sometimes see an icon next to the name of a gear piece--that's how you know if it can be used in a combo or not, and what its function is.

You'll shoot a lot of guns in Anthem, but the best and most fun part of combat is using your javelin's special abilities with your teammates to execute combos against bad guys. These combination attacks do massive damage and create status effects on enemies to turn the tide of battle, and each kind of javelin suit gets its own benefits from a successful combo. The Ranger have increased power against a single enemy, the Colossus creates an area-of-effect explosion, the Storm can transfer status effects to multiple enemies, and the Interceptor gets an aura that afflicts any nearby enemy.

The trouble with combos in Anthem is that the game isn't very clear on how they work. We've got a complete combo guide to help you make the most of your javelins' abilities, but for a top-level understanding of how to execute combos, you just need to know about two things: Primers and Detonators.

Anthem Guide: How To Combo With Javelin Primers, Detonators, And Special Effects

about X hours ago from

Anthem is very different from anything BioWare has made before. It abandons the company's choice-driven, single-player RPG formula in favor of a multiplayer focused game. If you've played some of BioWare's recent titles, like Mass Effect: Andromeda, you'll probably recognize the action-heavy third-person shooter mechanics.

However, setting up combos in Anthem is very different from how you would in past BioWare games. This doesn't mean combos are any less important, though. In fact, they're probably an even more essential part of Anthem's combat than previous BioWare titles. However, the game doesn't do a very good job of explaining how its combo system works.

With that in mind, and the game now being available on Xbox One, PS4, and PC, we've put together a guide on how combos work. For a more detailed impression of Anthem and how each of its systems work in tandem with each other, check out our review.

FTC Hosting Public Workshop On Loot Boxes This Year

about X hours ago from

The United States Federal Trade Commission (FTC) reportedly plans to host a public workshop on loot boxes, but declined to comment on whether it is conducting any formal investigation.

Variety reports that a letter from FTC chairman Joseph Simons to Senator Maggie Hassan (D-NH) revealed the workshop, in response to a letter Hassan had written expressing her concern about the practice. Simons noted that he cannot reveal any legal action underway that isn't already public, but stressed that the FTC has other tools available.

"For example, we are currently planning a public workshop on loot boxes for later this year as one non-law enforcement option," he wrote. "A workshop could provide a forum for stakeholders representing wide-ranging perspectives, including consumer advocacy organizations, parent groups, and industry members. It also could help elicit information to guide subsequent consumer outreach, which could include a consumer alert."
