True Detective Season 3 Theories From Episode 4


In the fourth episode of True Detective: Season 3, titled "The Hour and the Day," we didn't get a whole lot of forward progression. True Detective is a slow-burning show, and the writers used this episode to meander a bit.

We see an extended clip of '80s Wayne and Amelia on a date; we later see their marriage disintegrating in the '90s timeline.

There is a lot of Roland: his mutual fondness and respect for Wayne, and also his protectiveness of him. Roland goes hard on Tom when the grieving father calls Wayne the N-word in a drunken rant. And Roland is also the one who fights for Wayne to get back on the Purcell case in the '90s.

Lastly, we get a promise of violence to come--appropriate because we've reached the midway point of the show, where the narrative climax ought to be. The lynch mob has followed Trash Man back to his home, and it looks like the gun-laden standoff will end in bloodshed.

Here are our newest True Detective theories, via Reddit and our personal analysis, from Episode 4. If you liked this gallery, check out our True Detective theories for Episodes 1 and 2 and our theories for Episode 3.

DC Batman Movie's Director Teases Villains And Release Date

about X hours ago from

The DC universe is changing so quickly, that it's easy to forget about the projects that were announced several years ago. Back when Ben Affleck was still definitely playing Batman and before the commercial and critical failure of Justice League, War for the Planet the Apes director Matt Reeves was hired to make a standalone Batman movie. It's been some time since we heard anything new about the project, but now Reeves has confirmed that the film is very much happening.

In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Reeves stated that he was "deeply embedded in getting Batman on its feet," and hinted at what fans can approach from his Batman movie when it arrives. "It's very much a point of view-driven, noir Batman tale," he said. "It's told very squarely on his shoulders, and I hope it's going to be a story that will be thrilling but also emotional. It's more Batman in his detective mode than we've seen in the films. The comics have a history of that. He's supposed to be the world's greatest detective, and that's not necessarily been a part of what the movies have been.

"I'd love this to be one where when we go on that journey of tracking down the criminals and trying to solve a crime, it's going to allow his character to have an arc so that he can go through a transformation."

With PS Plus Dumping PS3 And Vita Games, Sony Boosts PS4 Members' Cloud Storage

about X hours ago from

We've known for some time that the February 2019 lineup of PlayStation Plus games would mark the final month in which subscribers received freebies for PS3 and Vita. Going forward, each month will consist solely of free PS4 games. Seemingly to compensate users for this change, Sony is making some changes to another perk offered through PS Plus.

Starting in early February (an exact date was not specified), PS Plus members will have access to 100 GB of cloud storage of save games, a tenfold increase over the existing 10 GB limit. Unfortunately, there was no word on further changes to cloud saves, such as enabling auto-uploads and downloads on more than just your main console.

Sony did not say if this is the extent of its plans to make up for dropping PS3 and Vita games. Even for PS4 users without either of those systems, this change is a loss. It's not uncommon for the monthly freebies to offer cross-buy support with PS4 versions of them, giving the current-gen system even more than the two free games that are explicitly intended for it. That's the case in February; claiming both Vita games will get you access to their PS4 versions.

January is dead, long live February. The shortest and sweetest month is set to bring an all new line-up of free PS4, PS3, and PS Vita games for PlayStation Plus members. Sony has announced the offerings, so check out what will be coming as of February 5.

The February offerings include the competitive melee action game For Honor and the full first season of Hitman.

Divekick has cross-buy with Vita, and both Vita games have cross-buy with PS4. Sony also announced it is expanding the PS Plus Cloud storage from 10 GB to 100 GB starting in February.

Far Cry: New Dawn - Ubisoft Talks Female Villains And Nuking The USA

Far Cry: New Dawn - Ubisoft Talks Female Villains And Nuking The USA

Far Cry: New Dawn takes the open-world FPS series into a near-future nuclear post-apocalypse that finds you roaming around a new kind of Hope County. Many of Far Cry 5's locations and characters are back, but they're ravaged by a society gone awry. As we discovered in the game's reveal, New Dawn introduces new enemies dubbed the Highwaymen, a Mad Max-like faction led by twin sisters who survive by stealing resources from self-sustaining societies.

You can find out more about how the game plays in our preview, which looks at New Dawn's RPG elements and base-building system. But we also had a chance had a chance to speak to narrative director James Nadiger about the game's inception, the ideas behind its concepts, and the design of its new villains.

GameSpot: The first question that came to my mind when New Dawn was revealed was: How long has this been in the works? It follows on from Far Cry 5's ending, so you must have this iteration planned for quite a while?

Rage 2 Makes You An Unstoppable Superhero--When You're Not Busy Driving

about X hours ago from

A follow-up to 2010's Rage is one of the last titles I expected to be announced at E3 2018. Rage isn't a bad game per se--it was just an experience that didn't quite hit the same highs of Doom, Quake, and Wolfenstein. Regardless, Rage 2 arrives later this year as a joint development between id Software and Just Cause 3's Avalanche Studios. It's still too soon to come to any definitive conclusions about Rage 2 as a whole, as the game was in pre-beta when I played it. That said, of the two hours I spent in the game, the combat was a highlight while the title's open world left me with a few misgivings.

The Rock Confirms He's Not In Fast & Furious 9

about X hours ago from

The huge success of the Fast & Furious series has meant that not only are there at least two more movies in the main franchise to come, we're also getting the first spin-off this year. Hobbs and Shaw sees Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham reprise their roles, and it arrives in August. However, Johnson has now confirmed that he won't appear in the next main Fast & Furious film.

In an interview with MTV News, Johnson explained that Fast 9 is about to start shooting ahead of its 2020 release date, and that neither he or Statham will feature in it. "The plan has always been for the Fast and Furious universe to grow and expand," he said, via Collider. "As of now, we're not in Fast 9 because they're getting ready to start shooting. But who knows with Fast 10 and down the road, you never know. Because look, at the end of the day, the truth is, there's unfinished business between Hobbs and Dom. It's unfinished.”
