Can Captain Marvel Time Travel?

about X hours ago from

Now that it is officially 2019, speculation about Avengers: Endgame has started to ramp up considerably. The countdown to April is ticking down day by day and the Captain Marvel movie is just around the corner, so the clues are pouring in from all sides--including this interesting detail shared by Samuel L. Jackson as reported by Entertainment Tonight.

When asked about Carol's position within the MCU's power hierarchy, he said, "She's pretty much the strongest character -- in terms of someone with powers are able to do things -- in the Marvel universe. So, for Carol Danvers to be that person and for Brie to become that person, it's gonna be a dynamite thing. I mean, [the Avengers] are up against some really, really tough odds right now--we saw throughout Infinity War--so now we know that we need something that's as powerful as Thanos." We've known Carol's status as one of--if not the most--powerful heroes in the MCU for some time, but Jackson continued, adding this juicy fact. "And at some point, we'll find out how powerful she is and all the things that she's capable of. She's one of the few people in the Marvel universe that can time travel, so…"

Watch Thanos Snap Away The Simpsons Family And Find Out Who Survives

about X hours ago from

The latest couch gag for The Simpsons was all about Thanos. The opening sequence of Season 30, Episode 12 that aired on Sunday saw Thanos from The Avengers movie series snap his fingers and turn Homer, Marge, Lisa, and Bart into dust.

Maggie is spared, and she cutely hops up onto the couch and sits peacefully next to Thanos, destroyer of worlds. We also see that the Soul Stone is actually Maggie's pacifier. The Simpsons family got unlucky here, as four of the five non-animal family members got snapped away when the world average is one in two. Here's the sequence:

Disney is buying most of Fox's assets, including The Simpsons, so there probably aren't any legal issues with Thanos popping up in Springfield.

Red Dead Redemption 2 Facing Legal Action From The Real Pinkertons

about X hours ago from

In Red Dead Redemption 2's world, the Pinkerton Detective Agency, a team of detectives hunting down Arthur Morgan and the rest of the Van der Linde gang, is the main antagonist organisation. Now, the real-life Pinkerton company is taking action against Rockstar Games over the way in which Red Dead Redemption 2 uses its name. For its part, Take-Two is claiming fair use with respect to the Pinkerton name.

Court documents discovered by The Blast reveal that Pinkerton Consulting & Investigations--the real detective agency founded in 1850--has issued a cease and desist letter to Rockstar Games and Take-Two Interactive in December.

Pinkerton Consulting said Rockstar had a "clear affection" for Pinkerton by using the name in Red Dead Redemption 2. However, the consulting company took issue with its use in the title because it might have led people to believe the real Pinkerton was involved in the game's development. Pinkerton is demanding that Take-Two pay an unspecified lump sum fee or a share of royalties in the future.

WWE Royal Rumble Match Card, Date, And Location For The 2019 PPV

about X hours ago from

When it comes to the Royal Rumble PPV, the card for the WWE event is changing, since we're still a few weeks out. Most recently, Braun Strowman was taken out of the picture for the Universal Championship and replaced with Finn Balor, a former champ who had to vacate the belt because of injury.

WWE's yearly event, the Royal Rumble, is almost here. It has one of the most interesting matches of the year, where 30 participants enter the ring, one by one, and have to eliminate each other until there is only one superstar left standing. The winner of the event gets to challenge their brand's champion at Wrestlemania, so the stakes are high.

This year's Royal Rumble is coming to PPV and the WWE Network live on Sunday, January 27 at 7 PM ET / 4 PM PT, with a Kickoff Show starting two hours prior. Chase Field in Phoenix, Arizona will host the event, and you can still pick up tickets if you're interested. Single tickets are going for as cheap as $36 as of this writing, but the prices will fluctuate as we get closer to the event.

While it's still a couple weeks away, there are currently eight matches on the card, and there could be a few more added, two of which should be on the Kickoff Show. Brock Lesnar returns to hopefully lose the Universal Championship to Braun Strowman, so WWE fans can finally have a fighting champ that actually shows up weekly. And if you think I'm being a bit salty, talk to any WWE fan about the Universal Championship, and they'll probably say the same thing.

Pokemon Go's ongoing Adventure Sync Hatchathon may be coming to an end soon, but a new event is set to kick off immediately afterward. Beginning January 15, Niantic will hold a two-week-long celebration of the Hoenn region, featuring a ton of Pokemon originally from Ruby and Sapphire.

Throughout the event, Gen 3 Pokemon such as Numel, Zigzagoon, and Taillow will spawn much more frequently in the wild. On top of that, players will have a chance to encounter Shiny forms of Zigzagoon and Taillow, while any Shroomish that evolve into Breloom during the event will know the Grass-type attack Grass Knot.

Raid Battles will also feature Gen 3 Pokemon, including the Legendaries Groudon and Kyogre. Gen 3 Pokemon will be much more likely to hatch from 7 km Eggs during the event as well. There will also be new Field Research tasks themed around Gen 3 Pokemon.

Steam Outlines Plan For Improvements In 2019

about X hours ago from

Valve has announced its plans for Steam in 2019 and beyond. The PC game store isn't ready to reveal the exact details behind each upcoming change, but it has announced enough to give us a basic idea of what to expect in the future.

The biggest planned change seems to be for game discoverability on the Steam Store. "We're working on a new recommendation engine powered by machine-learning, that can match players to games based on their individual tastes," Steam revealed in a blog post. The post went on to add that discovery algorithms would only be a part of the new process for recommending games to players. New "broadcasting and curating features" are under development as well.

Steam also announced plans for upgrading its events system, so that players would be able to more easily discover "interesting activities" associated to the games they play, such as tournaments or streams. Expansions and changes to both Steam Library and Steam TV are in the works as well.

Super Bowl 53 Will Use Augmented Reality, 115 Total Cameras

about X hours ago from

Super Bowl LIII is coming up soon, and now CBS--which is GameSpot's parent company--has announced some of the technological advancements it is planning to broadcast this year's big game.

Perhaps the most exciting advancement is the use of "augmented reality graphics." In a first for a live sporting event broadcast, Super Bowl LIII will have camera operators working with a "live, wireless handheld camera" that will show augmented reality graphics, as well as "up-close camera tracking" on the field.

This promises to deliver new perspectives and angles, as well as field-level views.

Here's When Fortnite's Glider Redeploy Update Drops

about X hours ago from

Like clockwork, Epic has another update lined up for its hit battle royale game, Fortnite. The developer confirmed that this week's 7.20 patch is set to arrive on all platforms--PS4, Xbox One, PC, Nintendo Switch, and mobile devices--on Tuesday, January 15, and it's bringing back a controversial gameplay element from Season 6: redeployable gliders.

Downtime for the update is scheduled to begin at 2 AM PT / 5 AM ET / 10 AM GMT. Epic hasn't estimated how long this downtime will last, but once servers are back up, redeployable gliders will return to Battle Royale mode--although this time they'll function a little differently than before.

When Epic first tested the redeploy mechanic last fall, players were able to open up their glider again and hang glide during a match if they were at least three stories in the air. This time around, however, the Glider Redeploy will be itemized, meaning it'll take up a slot in your inventory and can be found as loot in chests, vending machines, and supply llamas.
