20 years ago, The Matrix debuted and was a cultural phenomenon, and after two sequels, the story of Neo, Trinity, and the war between humans and robots was all wrapped up. At least, that's what we thought, until it was announced that Matrix 4 is underway.Lana Wachowski is set to return to write and direct the film in the franchise, and Keanu Reeves and Carrie-Anne Moss will reprise their roles as Neo and Trinity respectively, according to Variety. That's a bit puzzling because at the end of the third movie, The Matrix Revolutions, Neo sacrificed himself in order to save the world. Regardless, it's science fiction, so there will undoubtedly be a way to bring him back from the dead..Joining Wachowski on writing duties will be Aleksander Hemon (Love Island) and David Mitchell (Peep Show). The movie should go into production in early 2020."We could not be more excited to be re-entering the Matrix with Lana," Warner Bros. Picture Group chairman Toby Emmerich said. "Lana is a true … [Read more...] about The Matrix 4 Is Happening With Keanu Reeves And Carrie-Anne Moss
Dumbest news stories
There are some game series that we just get sick of hearing about. Even if we have no intention of buying into them, the idea that they exist is enough to rile us up. Sure, it’d be selfish to request that an entire series be deleted from the face of the Earth just because we didn’t like it… but we’re all a bit selfish, aren’t we? We asked the GameRevolution editorial team which game series they’d delete forever, and eradicate from the history books for their own benefit. As always, leave your own responses in the comments section below, and we’ll feature our favorite in tomorrow’s Tell GR. Paul Tamburro, executive editor: “This is a tactical decision on my behalf, but EA Sports UFC. The series is developed by EA Vancouver, which was also the same team behind Fight Night Champion. The Fight Night games were consistently fantastic, and the last entry in the series even had an excellent … [Read more...] about Tell GR: What game series would you delete forever?
Pretty soon the grim news cycle is going to grind to life again. Only three months until — no! Don’t think about it. We still have a moment here, on the crinkly, brightly coloured waves. Listen to their quiet rustling and think, not about reality, but about games! Yes, lovely, shiny games. We can bury our face right in them. And from that point of view the next 12 months are looking pretty good. Here’s our selection of the games we’re most looking forward to next year. Brendan: I like a corridor shooter. No open world to gawk at. No map to consult. No mountain to tramp towards. Just a nice, grim-faced bulletfunnel, with some nonsensical story and firey set pieces thrown in. The Metro games were not perfect, but they are among the best examples of a shooter admirably concentrating on its own genre. While Call of Duty’s corridor shoots became so stale that they dropped the singleplayer mode entirely for Codblops 4, the Metro folks went quiet. In recent … [Read more...] about The RPS hivemind presents: The most anticipated games of 2019

There’s a ton of different things I’m stoked to experience with Marvel’s Spider-Man: web-slinging, off-the-walls combat, and the wholly original story. All of these aspects and many others have me literally counting down the days until its release. Of all the things I’m looking forward to with Marvel’s Spider-Man though, the one area of the game that I can’t stop hypothesizing about is in regards to the various suits that Peter will be able to wear while swinging through New York City. As of this moment, we only know of a handful of the costumes that will be at our disposal within Marvel’s Spider-Man, but developer Insomniac Games has been teasing for quite some time that there will be a litany of outfits to wear. With this in mind, I’ve lately been mulling over just which of Spidey’s stylings I’d love to see. Just like the number of legs on a spider, here are eight suits from the Web-Slinger’s … [Read more...] about 8 Alternative Suits I’d Love to See Appear in Marvel’s Spider-Man
