Netflix's The Punisher And Jessica Jones Canceled, But Marvel Gives Fans Hope For Return

about X hours ago from

Netflix's The Punisher and Jessica Jones series' have been canceled. Deadline reports that Season 3 of Jessica Jones will still air on the streaming service, but it will mark the end of her run. The Punisher, meanwhile, will not return, having had Season 2 release on Netflix in January 2019.

This seemingly brings Marvel and Netflix's relationship as it pertains to creating new shows to an end. The streaming service has already called time on its Daredevil, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist shows, which means The Defenders are no more. Netflix has indicated that the shows will remain on Netflix for subscribers to watch, however.

"Marvel's The Punisher will not return for a third season on Netflix," reads a statement issued to Deadline. "Showrunner Steve Lightfoot, the terrific crew, and exceptional cast including star Jon Bernthal, delivered an acclaimed and compelling series for fans, and we are proud to showcase their work on Netflix for years to come.

Lord Of The Rings Prime Series Teased With Maps, A Poem

about X hours ago from

Amazon Prime has begun to tease its upcoming Lord of the Rings original show, with a series of posts on social media that both show maps of Middle-earth and quote the famous poem cited in Peter Jackson's film trilogy. As a result, fans have begun speculating on where and when the series will be set.

The first teaser was a tweet that displays a wide map of Middle-earth, conspicuously unlabeled, with the phrase "three Rings for the Elven-kings under the sky." A threaded reply included a link to explore or download the map, complete with labels. A follow-up on Instagram quotes the next part of the poem, "seven for the Dwarf-lords in their halls of stone."

The teases are a clear reference to the poem from the series of novels that details the backstory of of how the Rings of Power were distributed and how the One Ring was used to deceive the various factions of the world. Gandalf, played by Sir Ian McKellen, memorably quotes a piece of the poem in the first Peter Jackson film. The full poem reads:

Yoshi's Crafted World Is Cuteā€¦ But Is It Fun?

"Children are fascinated by real objects," Andrew Davenport, the creator of Teletubbies and countless other kids' shows, told the Guardian recently. "They will be able to see the weave of the fabric, the joins in the wallpaper, the printing on the wallpaper."

Davenport was talking about his new series, Moon and Me, but he may as well have been extolling the virtues of Nintendo's upcoming Switch platformer, Yoshi's Crafted World, whose environment is made entirely out of real, recognizable materials. Yoshi himself appears to be made out of wool, as he was in Yoshi's Woolly World, while the environment around him is constructed out of paper and cardboard.

As with similar games such as Super Paper Mario or Tearaway, this stylistic choice not only looks great, but also helps the game feel real. In a strange way, you can imagine yourself in there with Yoshi, and it's therefore hard not to smile when he sticks his tongue out and makes that silly little "BLANG" noise.

Top 10 UK Games Chart: Crackdown 3 Makes Slow Start In Debut Week

about X hours ago from

Far Cry: New Dawn wins the battle of the new releases this week as it debuts at No.1 in the UK physical sales chart, ahead of Metro: Exodus at No.2. Xbox One console exclusive Crackdown 3, however, fails to make the top 10 for the week ending February 16.

Sales monitor GfK Chart-Track also notes that Metro: Exodus was top of the chart in terms of revenue--likely owing to New Dawn's lower RRP. Microsoft's commitment to making all first party games available on release day at no extra cost with Xbox Game Pass should also be remembered. For comparison's sake, the last big Xbox exclusive, Forza Horizon 4, debuted at No.3, so Crackdown 3's No.13 finish may come as a disappointment for Microsoft. Jump Force is the final new release this week, and it finishes at No.4 in its first week on sale.

Far Cry: New Dawn launched to a mixed critical reception. We awarded the spin-off a 6/10 in our Far Cry: New Dawn review, with critic Edmond Tran stating the open-world title "is a palatable but unremarkable spin-off that feels like it could have achieved so much more."

about X hours ago from

One of the most insane structures ever devised by WWE is coming to the Elimination Chamber PPV today. WWE's latest event has seven matches on the card--five of which are title matches--and two of them will take place in the Elimination Chamber.

The show will air on the WWE Network and on PPV, taking place at the Toyota Center in Houston, Texas. The main card begins at 4 PM PT / 7 PM ET / 12 AM GMT (February 18), with a Kickoff Show starting one hour prior.

The Elimination Chamber is a giant metal structure placed around a WWE ring. Inside this monstrosity, there are four plexiglass pods. Six wrestlers enter the structure--four of which go into individual pods. Two wrestlers begin battle inside the ring, and one-by-one, wrestlers are released from their pods. The WWE superstars get eliminated until only one remains. In most cases, the last person standing becomes champion, and they rule Bartertown.
