‘Red Faction Guerrilla: Re-Mars-tered’ Review: Red Planet Hero – Electric Bento

“Red Faction Guerrilla: Re-Mars-tered is a must buy if you never played the original. At an MSRP of $29.99 it is a great deal. There are hours of enjoyment here, even after completing the main story. Is it flawed? Yes. But so was the original game. The destruction elements just overshadow most of these issues for me, creating an enjoyable experience anyway.” – Chris for Electric Bento

Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse Casts Nicolas Cage As One Of Many Spideys–Report

Although Spider-Man fans will have to wait until next summer to see the webslinger in his next live-action movie, the animated film Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse is released in December. The movie will feature various versions of Spider-Man, and it has now been reported that Nicolas Cage might take on one of these characters.

According to Collider, Cage will play Spider-Man Noir in Into The Spider-Verse. This version of Spidey first appeared in Marvel comics in 2009, and as the name suggests, is a darker version of the character. The Spider-Verse is a multiverse containing different Spider-Men, and we already knew from last month’s first trailer that there are at least three characters with Spider powers–Miles Morales, Peter Parker, and Gwen Stacey.

This will actually be the second animated superhero movie that Cage will lend his voice to this year–he also plays Superman in Teen Titans Go! To the Movies, which releases this month. Cage was actually close to playing the Man of Steel in a live-action movie back in the 1990s, when he was cast in Tim Burton’s Superman Lives. However, that film ultimately never happened. Beyond that, Cage is known for movies such as The Rock, Leaving Las Vegas, and Wild At Heart.

Into The Spider-Verse also stars Shameik Moore (The Get Down) as Morales, Jake Johnson (Jurassic World) as Parker, Hailee Steinfeld (Bumblebee) as Stacey, and Liev Schreiber (Ray Donovan) as the villainous Kingpin, plus Mahershala Ali (Luke Cage), Brian Tyree Henry (Atlanta), and Lily Tomlin (The West Wing).

The film is produced by The Lego Movie‘s Phil Lord and Chris Miller, with a screenplay by Lord. In a recent interview, Miller spoke about the movie’s distinctive visuals. “This is a new, unique experience, and we are pushing the medium,” he said, via Indiewire. “We’re getting away with so much with this movie. It’s a pretty wild style.” Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse hits theaters on December 14.

In related news, it was recently reported that Sony is developing a live-action Spider-Man spin-off movie based on the Korean-American superhero Silk. This is the latest in a number of films that the studio is looking to make, using heroes and villains from the wider Spidey universe; other include the Silver and Black and Morbius: The Living Vampire, which currently has Jared Leto attached in the lead role. The first spin-off, Venom, hits theaters in October.

Pokemon Go Celebrates Second Anniversary With Special Summer Pikachu

Niantic’s phenomenally popular mobile game Pokemon Go is celebrating its second anniversary this month, and the developer is commemorating the occasion in a number of ways. First, series mascot Pikachu and its pre-evolved form, Pichu, will appear much more frequently from July 6-31, and players will even have a chance to catch a special version of the Electric mouse for a limited time.

Throughout the remainder of July, a “summer style” Pikachu will also appear in the wild. Like the various hat-wearing Pikachu that were available during certain in-game events, this Pikachu only differs in appearance, sporting a straw hat and sunglasses. Additionally, players who have a gold Pikachu Fan medal will be able to purchase special items for their avatar, including a t-shirt and Pikachu ears.

No Caption Provided

Finally, Niantic has revealed that the Mythical Pokemon Celebi will soon make its debut in Pokemon Go. As was the case with Mew, Celebi will be the subject of a new Special Research quest. The developer hasn’t announced when the Celebi Special Research quest will kick off, only noting that it will be available “in the near future.” You can read more about Pokemon Go’s second anniversary celebration on the game’s official website.

In the meantime, players will soon have another chance to capture the Legendary bird Articuno. As a reward for completing enough Global Challenges during the recent Safari Zone event in Dortmund, Articuno is returning to Raid Battles for a very limited time this Saturday, July 7. The Pokemon will only be available during a three-hour window of time, and players will have a chance to encounter its Shiny form.

The following day, July 8, Niantic will host the next Pokemon Go Community Day. This month’s featured Pokemon is Squirtle; the classic starter will appear much more frequently for the duration of the event, and players who complete Field Research tasks will have a chance of finding a special Squirtle wearing sunglasses. Any Wartortle that evolves before the Community Day event will also learn the powerful Water attack Hyrdo Cannon.

$300 headphones fall short of expectations

The Blade’s Will Harrison: I feel the same way about hardware thats marketed for competitive gaming that I do about the dearly departed Gamer Grub. Whats wrong with the products sold to nongamers? Are these devices made with gamers in mind going to fix some inadequacy I possess?

Will my keyboard changing colors also change the color of my aura? Do $300 headphones make up for the fact that Im over the age of 30 and my reflexes arent what they used to be?

Chuchel and No Heroes Here were some of my highlights from this years BIG Festival

“The indie scene is positively boiling with new creations coming from just about every corner of the world. And even though BIG itself tends to focus on Latin America (and good on them for doing so), the few games that did come from outside that bubble proved to be incredibly impressive and fun to play. Here are some of my highlights.”. – Eduardo Reboucas, Entertainium
