Call of Duty: Modern Warfare has a rather snarky death quote for an unlikely death. Reddit user u/JustSomeDude049 points out that if you manage to get crushed by a shelf during the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Hunting Party mission, you don't get the usual screen featuring a grim quote from a deceased world leader. During the mission, soldiers will push a rather large shelf out of the way in order to move into the next area. If you stand where they're pushing the shelf, it'll crush you to death, and instead of a Martin Luther King Jr. quote attempting to motivate you to not die on your next go, Modern Warfare simply tells you how to avoid getting crushed. In Modern Warfare (2019) During the mission Hunting Party if you stand next to the shelf while the soldier are moving it, you get presented a unique death quote. from r/GamingDetails The suggestion to use your joysticks to "dodge" the shelf is a funny little Easter egg buried in Modern Warfare - a game that takes … [Read more...] about Call of Duty: Modern Warfare has a unique quote for an unlikely death
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
Diablo 2 is almost old enough to drink in the United States, so as someone who missed it the first time around – on account of being *checks notes* seven – I was a bit worried that Diablo 2: Resurrected would bother or bore me to no end. I got into the series with a few hundred hours of Diablo 3, and between that and the quality of life standards that modern games have drilled into me, I had high hopes for the remastered graphics but low expectations for the actual game. This left me with one question going into the recent technical alpha for Diablo 2: Resurrected: without any help from nostalgia, is the game genuinely fun in 2021? Yeah, actually. No rose-tinted glasses here In my experience, a remaster like this can get by without nostalgia as long as it still feels distinct from the games that followed it, and Diablo 2 is wildly different from Diablo 3. I don't want to spend too much time preaching to the choir here, but I do want to share my reaction to playing Diablo 2 for … [Read more...] about Diablo 2: Resurrected is fun to play even if you’ve never tried the original
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. Falcon and The Winter Soldier in the Marvel timeline Let’s get the obvious stuff out of the way first. Falcon and The Winter Soldier is set after the events of Avengers: Endgame. That means it’s at least 2023 by the time we see Sam and Bucky again. Sam, though, narrows down Falcon and The Winter Soldier’s place in the timeline by handing over Captain America’s shield in a ceremony. During his … [Read more...] about Where does Falcon and The Winter Soldier fit in the Marvel timeline?
