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
Zot the Avenger is in a world of his own. Onscreen, the long-haired 12-year-old carries himself like a cheeky, slightly awkward teen, complete with backwards baseball cap and baggy t-shirt. Zot—with a steady, practiced cadence and carefully cultivated air of confidence—is here to talk to you about fighting games on his program Video Games and More. The games are projected on a screen behind him, including the telltale blur of a camera being pointed at a CRT TV. As he fires up Street Fighter II as Balrog, he takes his first live call on a chunky beige corded phone. This isn't a retro Twitch stream or a YouTube show about vintage hardware. It's an early 1990s public access television show that aired on Access Tucson in Arizona almost 20 years before Twitch.tv was born. "Are you going to show the code for Mortal Kombat?" asks an excited kid on the line. Zot is prepared for any code, any game system. He stops playing and leans back in his seat. "People in the control room, put up the … [Read more...] about Meet the original streamer, who ran his own public access gaming show in 1993

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.
