Game Of Thrones Season 8 Documentary Coming To HBO After Finale

about X hours ago from

It's only a couple weeks until Season 8 of Game of Thrones debuts on HBO. However, the week after the series finale hits, the network will air a documentary about the making of the final season titled The Last Watch.

Coming on Sunday, May 26 at 9 PM ET / 11 PM PT--a week after the series finale--The Last Watch will recount the production from the set in Northern Ireland and the studios where the season was shot. It will follow the cast and crew through day-to-day production, dealing with the ins and outs of putting together one of the most anticipated finales in HBO's history. It will be directed by Jeanie Finlay.

But before fans get an in-depth look at how it all came together, the final season of Game of Thrones has to air, and it's premiering on Sunday, April 14. Earlier in the month, the first trailer for the series was revealed, and it left fans with a lot of questions and even more theories as to where Season 8 will go. Hopefully, it's a step in the right direction, as the last battle with the White Walkers in Season 7, Episode 6--"Beyond the Wall"--had some serious problems.

Sekiro Genichiro Boss Guide: How To Beat Your Nemesis

Facing Genichiro marks your first humiliation in From Software's latest punishing action game, Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice. After rescuing Kuro the Divine Heir from his captivity, you find Genichiro blocking your escape--and he quickly dismantles you for your insolence, quite literally.

After acquiring the Shinobi Prosthetic, though, you'll venture out into Ashina on a quest to free Kuro and avenge yourself on Genichiro. You'll get your chance before long, too, as he's just at the top of Ashina Castle, which is not too far from where you start when you awaken after your battle. It's possible to go pretty much straight there, besting a few bosses like the Chained Ogre, Gyoubu the Demon, and the Blazing Bull along the way. While the road is tough, nothing you've faced up to that point is as difficult as taking on Genichiro for the second time.

Luckily, we've got you covered. The tips below can help you deal with Genichiro's powerful attacks, and allow you to finally best him and get your revenge.

Watch The Borderlands PAX East Reveal Stream Here

about X hours ago from

Gearbox has spent weeks teasing announcements for PAX East, starting with one that very conspicuously looked like Borderlands and had a "3" attached. Just before the show kicks off, the studio has released a teaser for a Borderlands project. With the Gearbox panel at PAX East fast approaching, soon we'll see what it all means.

The PAX East panel takes place March 28, so check below for showtimes. We'll be bringing you news from the panel, but if you want to watch it all unfold live, set your alarm and come right back here at showtime to watch the stream.

The series of teases from Gearbox has often explicitly mentioned announcements coming at PAX East. Some have been clear references to Borderlands, while others have been more vague. Still others, like a tweet simply showing a malfunctioning umbrella, are either extremely metaphorical or the marketing team is pulling our collective legs.

April's PS4 Free Games For PS Plus Members Have Been Announced

about X hours ago from

We're in the final days of March, which means two things for PlayStation Plus members: March's free PS4 games will soon disappear, and another two free games will be available to download in April. Unfortunately, PS3 and Vita games are no longer part of the monthly package, and the latest free pair of games aren't quite on the same level as March's fantastic offerings. April's PS Plus games are The Surge and Conan Exiles, and they'll be available to download starting April 2.

The Surge is a science-fiction RPG heavily inspired by the Dark Souls series and takes place in a grim, dystopian future where the world has been ravaged by war and environmental diseases. Robots and clones make up a majority of the workforce, so the humans who are left must fight to survive while wearing exoskeleton implants intended to boost speed and strength. Critic Daniel Starkey gave the game a 7/10 in GameSpot's The Surge review.

"Not everything hits, but The Surge works far more often than it doesn't, and what it does change is mostly better executed here than in its forebears," Starkey wrote. "Deck 13 has crafted a satisfying adventure that breathes new life into a flooded sub-genre."

Sekiro Guardian Ape Boss Guide: Beat The Brutal Beast

Sekiro Guardian Ape Boss Guide: Beat The Brutal Beast

Most of the tough bosses in Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice are weapon-carrying warriors, who clash blades with you and require breaking through their guard to defeat them. Occasionally, though, you'll face some huge beasts, like the Blazing Bull or the Great Serpent. The Guardian Ape is another such giant belligerent animal, and it can hit you with a variety of moves from various ranges, making it a difficult beast to best.

You'll find the Guardian Ape on your road through the poisonous swamps of the Sunken Valley. The boss guards a flower you need to advance Sekiro's story, so you'll have to deal with it sooner or later--although if you can bulk up with Prayer Beads or by finishing off other bosses first, you might want to do so. Amping your attack power against the Guardian Ape is very useful, since you'll have to do a lot of damage to it during the fight.

We've got everything you'll need to know to deal with the Guardian Ape, from its poop-throwing antics to its sword-swinging mayhem. For more Sekiro guides, check out our giant (and growing) knowledge center about the game.

Most of the tough bosses in Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice are sword-wielding warriors, forcing you to fight through their blows and take them down when their guard is broken. Occasionally, though, you'll face some huge, mythic beasts, like the Blazing Bull or the Great Serpent. The Guardian Ape is another such ridiculous monster, and its wide variety of moves and effective ranges make it a difficult beast to best.

Journey To The Savage Planet Is A Weird Satire Of Late-Stage Capitalism In The Interstellar Age

Journey To The Savage Planet Is A Weird Satire Of Late-Stage Capitalism In The Interstellar Age

First revealed at The Game Awards 2018, Journey to the Savage Planet takes a decidedly more strange and self-aware approach to the premise of the lone space adventurer exploring a distant world. Instead of seeking knowledge and charting new areas of the universe for the betterment of humanity, it's your job as an interstellar adventurer to make way for the inevitable push of capitalism by prepping the planet for your employer--a mid-tier corporation that has an endless flow of products to sell.

We spent some time with Journey to the Savage Planet during GDC 2019 and spoke with Typhoon Studios co-founder and creative director Alex Hutchinson about the developer's approach to the familiar premise, why he's proud the game features no procedurally generated content, and how players will always be within reach of consumerist tendencies, even in the furthest reaches of space.
