Spider-Man Actor Tom Holland Didn't Consult With Past Spidey Actors

about X hours ago from

Tom Holland, the newest actor to play Spider-Man, says he did not consult with previous Spider-Man actors such as Tobey MaGuire or Andrew Garfield about the role.

"I wasn't in touch with them," Holland told Variety. "They both said some really lovely things about me online. I met Andrew [Garfield] at the BAFTAs the other day. It was cool. He's such a nice guy and we had a great chat and went our separate ways."

Also in the interview, Holland talked about the first time he donned the Spidey suit, saying it was "a little bit of a disappointment," but for a good reason. Because he was cast as Spider-Man after Captain America: Civil War started filming, the production team didn't have time to make him a suit right away. So he had to wear a modified version of his stunt double's suit, which was too big.

"Totally Unacceptable" -- Rocket League Dev Responds To Server Issues

about X hours ago from

Rocket League is immensely popular, but it is not without its problems. The game has faced server issues recently, resulting in long matchmaking times. Now, developer the CEO of developer Psyonix has pledged to improve the online component of the game.

"In regards to both backend (PsyNet) issues, and game server performance, we agree that the server outages and recent lengthy matchmaking times are totally unacceptable," Dave Hagewood said in a blog post today. "We sincerely apologize to all of our players for the quality of online play, and we are focusing all of our available resources on addressing PsyNet's capabilities and performance, and the quality of our game servers."

Hagewood said part of the issue is due to Rocket League's continued popularity. The number of monthly "active" players has risen by 40 percent compared to 2016 for the first few months of 2017, he said. "We need to do a better job at scaling up our systems and internal processes to handle this kind of growth," Hagewood explained.

Princess Leia shows up at the end of Star Wars: Rogue One, but, given the timeline, it had to be a younger version of actress Carrie Fisher. This was made possible through movie magic.

Norwegian actress Ingvild Deila played Leia in Rogue One, and some new images show what she looked like on the movie's set with motion-capture dots sprinkled on her face. The team at acclaimed effects studio Industrial Light & Magic took it from there, creating a young Leia face on Deila's body.

Outlast 2 Will Be Released In Australia [UPDATE]

about X hours ago from

[UPDATE] A press release sent today by Outlast 2's Australian publisher, 18point2, has now shed some light on the reasoning behind the game's eventual R18+ rating following a resubmission to the Classification Board. The provided statement reads as follows:

The original submission of Outlast 2 sent to the Australian Classification Branch contained the final game code and a video file for reference taken from an Alpha version of the game. This video file should not have been sent along with the game code, as its content was not representative of the final game.

In the second submission, the same game code was submitted, with a video file reflecting the final game content. The game was then approved for release with an R18+ rating. There will be only one version of Outlast 2 available worldwide. These will be the final comments made on this release.
