Magic: The Gathering has explored worlds ruled by despotic dragons, a celestial pantheon who wage war on each other using mortals as pawns, and a race of biomechanical horrors. Its latest set introduces perhaps the most terrifying threat yet: spell-powered teenagers. Strixhaven: School of Mages dropped on Magic: The Gathering—Arena on April 15, inviting players to their first day at the multiverse's preeminent arcane university. Proving much more than just a Harry Potter knock-off, Strixhaven's whimsical setting proved immediately popular with players. The new set introduced a host of fresh faces along with a very familiar one , three new mechanics (or four, if you're pedantic), and a peek into the near future of the world's most popular collectible card game. The university comprises five colleges defined by a pair of enemy mana colors, ostensibly opposed values smashed together with interesting results. New students align themselves with either Silverquill, Lorehold, … [Read more...] about Magic: The Gathering—Arena wants you to go back to school
Silent Hill will return in the form of DLC for the indie multiplayer game Dark Deception: Monsters & Mortals on March 23. While it isn't the new Silent Hill that fans have been hoping for for years at this point, the DLC does bring back some franchise favorites like Heather Mason, killer nurses, and--of course--Pyramid Head. The gameplay trailer below shows off the lakeside town's foggy streets, as well as several locations from the first game, including Midwich Elementary School. Watch out for those flying harpies, though, they're pretty nasty. The DLC even includes some lesser-known characters from the series, including Silent Hill 1's cop Cybil Bennett. As a whole, it looks like a fairly substantial chunk of content for the game, though its price is not yet listed on Steam . This isn't the only Silent Hill crossover that's happened recently: Pyramid Head and co. were added to Dead by Daylight last year . Rumors of new Silent Hill projects have swirled over the past … [Read more...] about Silent Hill Returns Soon (Via Dark Deception DLC)
Time hasn't been kind to Max Payne, the New York cop who used to woo us - or perhaps 'Woo' us - by diving around in slow motion blasting organised crime to pieces. In one of the bleakest game intros I've ever seen, Max begins his latest adventure by arriving at his new Sao Paolo apartment, getting the shakes, then draining a bottle of bourbon, chain-smoking and smashing a photograph of his dead family against a wall in his torment. Press Start. If Max Payne 2 was The Fall of Max Payne, then Max Payne 3 is Max at rock bottom. He starts the game in a purgatorial funk, bodyguard to a Brazilian industrialist and his family of rich playboys and politicians, drinking his way through the days - the end of chapter one sees him lurching around his apartment, throwing up in the kitchen sink and then crying himself to sleep - while we listen along to his internal monologue. Poor old Max. For a while though, it seems as though time has been surprisingly kind to Max Payne, the third-person … [Read more...] about Max Payne 3 Review
So, where does Falcon and The Winter Soldier take place in the Marvel timeline ? Everything taking place in a post-blip, post- Avengers: Endgame world is a lot more difficult to pin down judging by the first few Marvel Phase 4 entries . But, still, there are a few pointers and clues as to what year(s) Falcon and The Winter Soldier is set in, as well as whether it takes place before or after WandaVision . Settle in as we swoop down and zero in on where Falcon and The Winter Soldier fits in the MCU after the first episode. It’s still early days, but we think we have an idea.

During his … [Read more...] about Where does Falcon and The Winter Soldier fit in the Marvel timeline?
