Indivisible Review - Bahala Na

There's nothing quite like the bright, beautiful, and sometimes distraught world of Indivisible. It's one that wears its Southeast/South Asian influences on its sleeve, and pulls you into places you want to be in with characters you want to be around. Developer Lab Zero blends several genre elements to create a system of combat and platforming that flows seamlessly between Indivisible's seemingly disparate parts. It has so much going for it that it's disappointing when heartfelt exchanges and pivotal moments lack the gravitas they deserve or are simply glossed over. While Indivisible has trouble following through narratively, I can't shake its enjoyable moments and the sense of cultural visibility it gives a region I'm connected to.

about X hours ago from

After months of anticipation, we finally know when Rick and Morty Season 4 will premiere. The new season arrives on Sunday, November 10, and the first trailer has been released.

The date and trailer were revealed together in a tweet from the official Adult Swim account. The promo delivers a hilarious, non-stop barrage of insane situations for the intrepid dimension-hopping pair, including robots, aliens, mutations, and experiments gone terribly wrong. As the voiceover tells us: "Things are are pretty much the same--all f***ed up!" Check the trailer out below.

The first five episodes of Season 4 will arrive this year, while the second half is set to premiere in 2020. But while there will be a bit of a gap before we can see the rest of Season 4, co-creator Dan Harmon has promised that fans will never have to wait as long as they have since Season 3, which ran back in 2017.

DC's Joker Smashes Box Office Records

about X hours ago from

While it's not surprising when a new DC movie does huge business at the box office, the success of Warner Bros.' Joker this weekend was still impressive. It's the first of the studio's recent movies to carry an R rating, and while the Joker is an iconic comic book character, this was a Batman-free movie with a very different tone to DC's other films. Nevertheless, strong reviews and huge pre-release buzz helped the film smash the record for an October release in the US. [Update: It turns out Joker's performance was even stronger than initially believed, with Variety reporting the movie actually generated $96 million in North America during its opening weekend.]

Joker made an estimated $93.5 million in its first three days, which beats the previous record-holder, last year's Venom. As Box Office Mojo states, this puts Joker very close to the $93.8 million earned by Justice League in November 2017. The result is particularly impressive given Joker had a smaller production budget than many recent comic book movies; an estimated $55 million compared to Venom's $100 million and Justice League's enormous $300 million. Joker is also the fourth largest opening ever for an R-rated movie, and worldwide, the movie made more than $234 million so far.

Top 10 UK Games Chart - Ghost Recon: Breakpoint Fails To Knock FIFA 20 Off Its Perch

about X hours ago from

Ghost Recon: Breakpoint is this week's big new release, but the Ubisoft shooter is unable to usurp FIFA 20 at the top of the UK physical sales chart for the week ending October 5. EA's sports behemoth finishes at No.1 once again, meaning Breakpoint is forced to settle for a No.2 debut.

Much of the chart remains unchanged, with Borderlands 3 and Gears 5 remaining at No.3 and No.4, respectively, while The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening slips from No.2 last week to No.5 this. Aside from Ghost Recon, the only new release is Ghostbusters The Video Game: Remastered, which launches at No.6.

Breakpoint has experienced a somewhat negative critical reception since its launch, including a 4/10 in GameSpot's verdict. "There's some surprising fun to be had stealthily infiltrating enemy compounds and playing with friends, but Breakpoint is still a generic and distinctly sub-par game," wrote our critic, Richard Wakeling. "It's essentially every Ubisoft open-world game rolled into one, failing to excel in any one area or establish its own identity. Breakpoint is a messy, confused game and a ghost of the series' former self." Read more in our full Ghost Recon: Breakpoint review-in-progress.

WWE Hell In A Cell 2019 Full Results: The Fiend And Seth Rollins Fight To Baffling Conclusion

What do you do when a cage match simply isn't extreme enough? That's where Hell in a Cell comes in. WWE's signature demonic structure if back for the 2019 Hell in a Cell pay-per-view, which will see two championship matches happening inside of the steel menace.

Of course, that's not all you'll see at Hell in a Cell. Thus far, eight matches have been announced for the show. The notable absence is a Cruiserweight Championship match. However, it has already been confirmed that the Cruiserweight Championship will be on the line on the next episode of NXT on USA. It's also worth noting neither show's men's Tag Team Championships, nor the United States or Intercontinental titles are currently scheduled to be defended. You can see the announced match card below.

Hell in a Cell begins at 7 PM ET, with the kickoff show launching one hour earlier at 6 PM ET. The show will be available via traditional pay-per-view, as well as on the WWE Network. You can also follow along as GameSpot tracks the winners and losers of each match below. Make sure to join us for the start of Hell in a Cell Kickoff at 6 PM ET.

Watch True Fiction Ep. 3: The Unexplained Deaths That Inspired A Nightmare On Elm Street

about X hours ago from

In episode three of True Fiction, we're delving into the realm of dreams and nightmares to look at the origins of a beloved horror movie franchise: Nightmare on Elm Street. The series introduced Freddy Kruger--now an iconic horror movie villain--into pop culture, but the birth of the character--and the horrors he inflicted--are rooted in tragedies that occurred in the real world.

As you can imagine, exploring the subject matter that inspired the movie series and charting its transformation into a pop culture entertainment is tricky. And that's what host and writer Kurt Indovina discusses below. You can check out True Fiction episode three below and on the GameSpot Universe YouTube channel, where new episodes will be released every Sunday.

Kurt: While making True Fiction I was faced with a lot of challenges I hadn’t dealt with in previous projects. Challenges like, 'How do I tell the history of hundreds of Hmong refugees who escaped a mass genocide after the crippling end of the Vietnam War only to die in their sleep after thinking they had finally reached salvation' in a way that is respectful, but also entertaining, fun, and charming viewing experience for you.

Yooka-Laylee And The Impossible Lair Review - Uninvited Nostalgia

Yooka-Laylee And The Impossible Lair Review - Uninvited Nostalgia

It's easy to love Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair when you start. The platformer is bursting with bright, saturated hues at every turn, with a whimsical soundtrack that's as catchy as it is cheery. It's a delightful veneer that quickly gives way to an otherwise predictable and unremarkable platformer. Despite changing its formula from full 3D to 2.5D, Yooka-Laylee is still too firmly rooted in a bygone era for platformers.

This shortcoming is hard to see at first, especially with Impossible Lair's intriguing setup. In theory, the Impossible Lair is an endgame challenge you can attempt in the opening moments of the game. It's a gauntlet of spike traps and moving platforms, populated to the brim with enemies ready to chew you up and spit you back out. Each stage outside of the Lair is meant to help you with this. You’re rewarded with a bee when you complete a stage, each acting as an additional hit point when you attempt the Lair once more. Gathering as many bees as you can lets you push further in while affording you more mistakes. This entices you to check back in with the Impossible Lair from time to time, seeing how well your new health pool holds up and if that (combined with your improving platforming skills) are enough to best it.
