Invincible, the Amazon Studios series based off the Robert Kirkman comic, has been renewed for two more seasons just a day before its season one finale. Invincible is an adult animation show with some pretty gratuitous violence and intense themes based on Kirkman's longest-running comic book series that wrapped in February 2018 after running for 15 years. "I’m extremely thankful to Amazon for the support and dedication they’ve put behind Invincible," says Kirkman. "The comic book is truly a love letter to a genre that Cory [Walker] and I grew up reading and loving, and it’s been a gratifying journey to watch our characters come to life again through the animated series. We’re beyond excited to continue this story for at least two more seasons." The hour-long animated series will stream on Amazon Prime Video for at least two more seasons, giving us more time to hang out with its titular character Invincible AKA Mark Grayson (Steven Yeun), a 17-year-old whose father is Omni-Man … [Read more...] about Invincible is getting two more seasons
Jed Shepherd, one of the minds behind the critically acclaimed 2020 quarantine horror movie Host , has one goal in mind for his upcoming FMV horror game Ghosts : to scare the living shit out of you. Shepherd and the cast of Host recently joined me on a Zoom call, which was more than a little eerie after rewatching Host the night before, to talk about making a game that you can only play at 10pm and the obscure Kojima game that inspired it. Sure, it's a novel idea, resurrecting a bygone genre with a fresh gimmick and a sly wink to cult classics like Night Trap and Phantasmagoria, but when you consider Shepherd's background and ambitions, Ghosts makes a lot of sense. He's a massive horror buff, filmmaker, and genuinely passionate fan of '90s horror games, and he wants to find a new way to scare people senseless. Maximum fear "Yeah, I'm just kind of treating it like a scary film," Shepherd says. "That's the main thing for me, to make it as scary as possible; to make it the … [Read more...] about How FMV horror game Ghosts channels an obscure Hideo Kojima game, and why you have to play it at 10pm

In WandaVision Episode 7, we learned a shocking (or not-so-shocking, depending on how deeply embroiled in fan theories you've been since the show's premiere) truth about Kathryn Hahn's Agnes. Surprise! She's actually been Agatha Harkness all along, and she even gets her very own theme song to prove it. But, like many things in WandaVision, this reveal only served to raise more questions than it answered--namely: Who the hell is Agatha Harkness and why does she matter in Wanda's story? And naturally, while this is still very much a mystery for the MCU, we can look to Agatha's bizarre comic book history for clues. Agatha Harkness was first introduced in Fantastic Four #94 back in 1970, but before you break out the red string and start connecting dots on your MCU F4 conspiracy walls just yet, know that her role with the first family of Marvel was a little odd. Rather than existing as a villain for anyone in the Richards family, Agatha was a governess--a fancy nanny--to Reed and Sue's … [Read more...] about WandaVision: So Who Is Kathryn Hahn Actually Playing?
Previously, Destiny 2 dipped a toe in abstract, geometric colourscapes in last year's Prophecy dungeon. Now, in the Vex-themed Season of the Splicer, due next Tuesday, Bungie is going all-out Tron with a series of simulations that Guardians will be tasked with bringing down. As Ikora explains in the new season's trailer, the Vex have forced the city into eternal darkness, which apparently is something they can a) do, and b) have only just done. To stop him, we'll be turning to our Fallen pal Mithrax—finally the star after years spent hiding in sidequests, lore and that bit in the Zero Hour secret mission where he turns up, kills one Dregg and then swoops in at the end after you've done all of the hard work. Also, yes! Ikora is speaking for the first time since Season of the Undying, over a year ago. The two currently revealed activities for this season are the weekly pinnacle mission, Expunge, where Guardians will infiltrate the Vex network, and a new … [Read more...] about Destiny 2 goes Tron in Season of the Splicer
