about X hours ago from

The iconic Chucky--next set to be played by Mark Hamill--wasn't the only haunted doll that made an appearance during this year's WonderCon. Warner Bros. dropped the new trailer for the next Annabelle movie, Annabelle Comes Home, during its panel at the convention in Anaheim, California.

Watch it below to see what's new in the third Annabelle movie, the latest chapter of the connected Conjuring universe to be revealed:

In the trailer, a friend of the Judy Warren's (Ed and Lorraine's daughter) very unwisely disturbs the ghost-busting duo's private hoard of spooky nicknacks, and the results go about as well as you'd expect.

There's one more iconic character for Mark Hamill to add to his resume. The man behind Luke Skywalker, Joker in Batman: The Animated Series, and a long list of other heroes and villains has found his next role as the murderous Chucky doll in the remake of the horror film Child's Play.

The news was revealed during the Child's Play WonderCon panel, via a pre-recorded video from Hamill, in which he talked about his excitement to take on the psychopathic toy. The casting was even news to the movie's other cast members, who were only told of his joining the project just before they walked on stage. Aubrey Plaza, who stars in the movie, joked that she willed this into happening by killing Chucky with a lightsaber during filming.

As for Hamill's role in Child's Play, he's still recording dialogue, producer Seth Grahame-Smith hinted. "To have an icon reimagining an iconic character is an incredible gift," the producer said. "He's taken on this challenge with a huge amount of energy and really come at it in a serious way." The actor himself teased this news was coming in a tweet a day before the official reveal.

Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled Will Include Tracks From The Sequel Nitro Kart

about X hours ago from

The remaster for Crash Team Racing channels much of the same energy and cartoonish personality that made the classic PS1 title such a well-loved game. Developed by Beenox, Crash Team Racing: Nitro-Refueled also manages to go a bit further than updating the original, including more content than people had anticipated. During PAX East 2019, we spent some time racing on the different tracks in Nitro-Refueled, which included the return of some tracks found from the sequel Nitro Kart.

Speaking with GameSpot at PAX, Beenox co-studio head Thomas Wilson described the approach they took with the remaster, and what sort of content they wanted to include with the game.

"With the name Nitro-Fueled, we wanted to see how we could complement the original experience," said Wilson. "We did that by adding new tracks that originated from Crash Nitro Kart, and which we decided pretty early on we were going to do that. We felt it was the right decision, and it was all about creating a more well-rounded package for fans."

PAX East 2019: First Trailer For Stylish 2.5D Stealth Game, Liberated

about X hours ago from

Atomic Wolf, the indie developer behind the Bomberman-like Mad Age & This Guy, has given us a first look at a new title called Liberated during PAX East 2019. In stark contrast to the studio's previous effort, Liberated is a stylish, narrative-driven 2.5D stealth game inspired by noir films and graphic novels.

Set in a bleak, dystopian future where the government is using technology to surveil and manipulate the public, Liberated tells the story of a group of characters who cross paths with the authoritarian police force and a violent opposition group fighting against it. The narrative is framed like a graphic novel; the game is divided up into four chapters, which are presented as four comic book issues, with story and gameplay sequences unfolding across different panels.

Throughout the course of the game, players will be faced with choices that will affect how the story is shaped and lead to entirely different endings. Among other things, players must choose whether to cooperate with the government or the opposition group. As the story unfolds, however, you'll realize the decision isn't as black-and-white as it may initially appear, and every choice you make will carry a consequence.
