    • Resident Evil 2 Remake Gameplay Details Revealed | I.G Gaming News

      1 day ago


      ***>*** video form of post w/ discussion

      After years of radio silence regarding the remake of Resident Evil 2, a trailer was finally released during this week's E3. The trailer didn't show much in the way of gameplay, instead showing the game's cutscenes. They were promising to be sure, and the game is shaping up to be just as scary if not more than Resident Evil's best.

      Recently however, GameSpot recorded footage of a demo for Resident Evil 2 and recounted how the game felt and what to expect.

      Unlike the much-lauded remake of the original Resident Evil, REmake 2 isn't going to have the original fixed cameras and tank controls, rather going for a Resident Evil 4 feel. The game will have an over-the-shoulder view and will feature the aiming system of the majority of the over-the-shoulder games have.

      Some fans might have reservations about this decision; after all, most of the Resident Evil games with this view and feel haven't been all that scary, especially 5 and 6. However, judging by the gameplay footage, REmake 2 isn't going to skimp on the atmosphere and scares. Despite the view and ability to aim, ammo will still be scarce much like the original game, so every shot still counts. Some aspects from the critically-acclaimed Resident Evil 7 are also present in the demo, namely the HUD and the inventory screen.

      What's interesting to note is that the game's tone is also much different from that of the original; RE2 is a famously cheesy game about on par with a B movie. The remake goes for a tone that is closer to RE7, in that it's more gruesome and somewhat grounded. Despite that, the team behind REmake 2 are still determined to include some of the more memorable moments from the original such as the giant alligator boss and the legendary side character, Tofu. The inclusion of Tofu will be especially interesting given the inherent silliness in playing a giant block of tofu. HUNK will also be making an appearance. It's too early to tell, but if HUNK and Tofu are returning, this could mean that REmake 2 will include the bonus modes and features the original RE2 is famous for.

      The remake of Resident Evil 2 is set to release on January 25, 2019.

    • Bryan Singer Will be Credited as Director for 'Bohemian Rhapsody' | I.G Movie News

      4 days ago



      Bryan Singer, mostly known for his work on the X-Men films, is said to be credited as the director for the upcoming Queen biopic, Bohemian Rhapsody. Singer finished filming a majority of the film before he left, reportedly fired last fall, and Dexter Fletcher hopped on to finish it. Producer Graham King said Fletcher had filmed about 3 weeks worth of footage to complete the movie, and add on the fact that Singer's name was never shown on the trailer, Fletcher does not plan on pushing for credit as the film's director and says he simply wanted to get the film done.

      In case you're unaware of the controversy surrounding Singer's name, there have been more than a few allegations against the director, most involving sexual assault against minors. Singer's name was one of many that were brought up during talks of supposed "sex rings" within Hollywood where big-name producers and stars would use their influence on newer faces trying to make it in the entertainment industry and promise them their big break if they did what they said. While there's no real proof Singer was involved in any way, an accusation like that would be enough to stifle anyone's career.

      Back in December 2017, Singer addressed his sudden departure from the movie saying that it involved the health of one of his parents. Coincidentally, just days after his statement was released, news came up that the director is facing a lawsuit claiming he sexually assaulted a 17-year-old boy in 2003.

      As of now, there are no noticeable responses to Singer being credited to the film and there's been no backlash against the film. Bohemian Rhapsody is set to release November 2nd of this year.


    • Transformers' Bumblebee is Getting His Own Movie...Not Directed by Michael Bay | I.G Movie News

      1 week ago


      ***>*** Video of Post with more Opinion + Theories. Like usual

      On June 5th, a trailer revealing that Bumblebee, one of the main characters in the long-running Transformers film series, would be getting his own movie was released. The movie will be a prequel, detailing his history prior to meeting Sam Witwicky in the first movie and will take place in 1987. The movie will follow a new character, a teenage girl named Charlie, played by Hailee Steinfeld of True Grit fame, as she accidentally revives and bonds with Bumblebee.

      The trailer has a much different feel than the previous movies in the series; it is much softer and appears to try and really explore Bumblebee's relationship with Charlie. In fact, the trailer is surprisingly light on explosions. There's plenty of action to be sure, but it's noticeably subdued. This is most likely because the director reins have been handed from Michael Bay to Travis Knight, who is known for directing the stop-motion animated movie, Kubo and the Two Strings. Overall, the movie seems to be trying something different as opposed to the loud, over-the-top action of the previous five films in favor of a quieter, more emotional tone.

      Bumblebee is currently slated for a December 21st release.

    • Wally West Isn't Returning as a Series Regular in Legends of Tomorrow Season 4 | I.G TV News

      1 week ago


      ***>*** Video of our post w/ more opinions in the end

      Keiynan Lonsdale, the actor who plays Wally West aka Kid Flash for the CW, will NOT be a series regular for Legends of Tomorrow season 4.

      Lonsdale had joined as a member of the Legends halfway through their third season after his character Wally West had walked off of Flash due to not feeling like he's part of the team. Along with Matt Ryan, the actor who plays Constantine and Jes Macallan who plays Ava, the three of them helped fill up the roster of misfit heroes after losing many of their original members. Once the season had finished, Wally appeared on the series finally of Flash, reuniting with his friends and family, meeting the newest member of his family, Jenna and telling his dad that he's at peace with his part. Around this part of the episode we got the cliffhanger scene that every CW show needs so that they can lead into the next season, this time, Wally's unborn niece from the future arrives, telling them that she somehow messed up.

      So Wally West has two pretty good reasons why he'd be staying in Flash, and now that it appears the show will be a more Family oriented one in season five, it only makes sense. That being said, Wally may act as he did during the later parts of Flash before he left for the Legends, which means he'd be sidelined until needed.


    • Batman's Butler, Alfred Pennyworth, Will Be Getting His Own Live-Action TV Series | I.G TV News

      1 month ago



      The cable network channel, Epix, gave a 10-episode show detailing Alfred Pennyworth's life before becoming the butler we're all familiar with. The show will be headed by Bruno Heller and executive produced by Danny Cannon, both of who share the same roles on Fox's Gotham. The show will take place during Alfred's time in the London special forces in the 1960s.

      Despite sharing the same showrunner and executive producer as Gotham, the show will not be related to Gotham and will take place in an alternate universe. Sean Pertwee, who plays Alfred in Gotham, will not be reprising his role in Pennyworth.

      Epix president, Michael Wright, has stated the following:

         "As genuine fans of these classic DC characters, as well as the incredibly talented Bruno Heller and Danny Cannon, we couldn’t be more excited to make Epix the home of this series. We can’t wait to work with Bruno and Danny – along with Peter Roth, Susan Rovner, Brett Paul and the team at Warner Horizon – on this fantastic origin story."

      In a joint statement, Heller and Cannon expressed their enthusiasm for Epix picking up the show, stating, "Michael and his colleagues have created the perfect venue for original storytelling, and all of us working on Pennyworth are thrilled to be on the Epix slate."

      As of now, it is not known when Pennyworth will premiere, as casting has not started yet. It can be assumed it will begin production near or after the end of Gotham's run, which is slated to be the 2018-2019 season.


    • Outlast 3 Is Coming and It Will be Different from Outlast 1 and 2 | I.G Gaming News

      ******video form of post with more opinion in the end

      Back in 2017, after the release of their second game Outlast II, Red Barrels announced that there would be an Outlast III. If you're unsure or never heard of Outlast, it's a first person horror game that throws you into the maw of a Satan fueled, erection ridden, heroine dream where you'll be forced to constantly run away from people that shouldn't exist, or monsters that you hope never exist. Well, now there's a third title on the way, but it may not be as d**k filled as the last two, at least *I* hope not.

      Outlast came out back in 2013/2014 and was a huge hit in the indie platform, becoming one of the most popular new IPs from an independent studio this decade. Last year, Outlast II came out, receiving less praise for almost feeling like a copy and paste of its predecessor, among other things. The series made Red Barrels around $64 million, so it'd only make sense to make it a trilogy unless you follow the path of almost every other trilogy where the quality of the product goes way down, which is where we come to Philippe Morin's comment on changing things up.

      In an interview at Berlin's Quo Vadis conference with, Philippe Morin spoke about the story behind his company and Outlast. During the interview, Morin explained the idea behind changing the formula.

          "If you'd told me a year ago that the project we're currently working on was going to be our next thing, I would have said, 'Nah, I don't think so'. It's an internal struggle.", Morin says. "On the one side you have to stay motivated as a developer, but at the same time we have to think about stuff as company owners. That's why it took us several months to find the sweet-spot between doing something that's going to please the fans, and something that we're driven by personally. In big studios, they can say, 'If you're burnt out we can always give the IP to a different team'. But that's not the case here."

         "We're prototyping, and the way I want to approach this is to get a prototype that we're really happy about, and then figure out the best way to get it done. Are we going to need the same kind of budget? Can it be lower? Right now, I don't know. All I know is that I always make sure we have options on the table: plan A, B, C and D. When you get to the river, you decide which bridge you want to cross. I always tell the team that, since the studio is owned by developers, our interests as developers is as important as our interests as shareholders. We don't want to change that."


    • Fox's Newest Casualties: Brooklyn Nine-Nine and The Last Man on Earth Cancelled | I.G TV News

      1 month ago


      ****** video form of post

      Over the years, Fox has developed a reputation for cancelling well-received shows in order to make room for new shows on its schedule. A rather infamous Family Guy bit involves protagonist Peter Griffin listing off the twenty-nine shows that were cancelled in the three years between Family Guy's own cancellation and revival. Family Guy made that joke in 2005, around thirteen years ago, and yet the joke is still relevant today.

      Fox announced the cancellation of three shows in particular recently: The Mick, The Last Man on Earth, and Brooklyn Nine-Nine. The reasoning, they claim, is to make room for more shows in the upcoming fall lineup, as all three shows have suffered low ratings. Brooklyn Nine-Nine's cancellation has received noticeable backlash online, and celebrities such as Lin-Manuel Miranda have talked about their disappointment.

      Brooklyn Nine-Nine has been a critical darling since its inception in 2013, but its ratings have been in decline, with the fifth season being the lowest at just two million viewers per episode. Given the show's freefalling ratings, it isn't much surprise as to why Fox would give it the axe, but with the backlash, the show proves it still has a solid fanbase.

      The Last Man on Earth has also seen some backlash, notably from fans such as Seth Myers and its own cast members. The series was never able to climb out of its niche category, and now that it has been cancelled, it likely never will. The Mick hasn't seen as much outpouring of support, but fans of Kaitlin Olsen's work, notably on It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia are disappointed nonetheless.

      There are rumors circulating as to whether these shows can be saved, such as transferring from cable television to streaming services such as Hulu, but rumors such as these always end up spreading when a beloved but poorly-rated TV show winds up cancelled. It has happened before, to be sure, but only time will tell if these shows will be saved.


    • Adult Swim Orders for 70 More Episodes of Rick and Morty | I.G TV News

      1 month ago


      Adult Swim has ordered 70 new episodes of one of their most beloved shows Rick and Morty. The news was released today by co-creator Justin Roiland's twitter. Dan Harmon released a video on Instagram of both him and Justin in the shower, saying that it's time for them to go back to work.

      So far, each season of Rick and Morty only has 10 episodes, meaning Adult Swim is asking for 7 seasons of the show, meaning if they manage to go through all 70, Rick and Morty will have gone through 10 whole seasons. In September 2017, Harmon spoke about wanting to do more than 10 episodes a season, but as of now, there's no information on that.

      Rick and Morty had a bit of an issue last year with Mc'Donald's Szechuan Sauce. Late in 2017, fans of the show began going crazy over a joke made by Rick in the season 3 opening. One of the major stories to come out was that the show itself was now canceled after the creator's disapproval of their fans actions simply because a main character made such a big deal about it. For some, it could be said that this incident is possibly the reason it took Adult Swim so long to come out and give the green light for the show.


    • United States and the World are on Track to Working with Artificial Intelligence | I.G Tech News

      1 month ago


      >*** You know the deal. Video form of Post with more discussion at the end.

      The White House on Thursday plans to convene executives from Amazon, Facebook, Google, Intel, Microsoft, Nvidia, Oracle, Ford, Land O’Lakes, Mastercard, Pfizer and United Airlines other major U.S. companies as it seeks to develop and grow its understanding and advancement in artificial intelligence.

      According to a draft of the event, the Trump administration plans to work with government officials, academics and AI developers develop and adopt regulations to advance AI in such fields as agriculture, health care, and transportation.

      America has not made the biggest leap into it A.I research, though the government has put millions into STEM education. Trump's administration claims, by their estimate, that in 2017, $2 billion was put into A.I R&D. However other countries are coming up to surpass the U.S. This year, France announced it would invest $1.8 billion (€1.5 billion) in AI research by 2022; the UK is putting hundreds of millions of dollars into the field in a bid to take the lead in AI ethics, China unveiled their plan to become the world’s dominant force in AI by 2030 with AlphaGo.

      To address the idea that millions have about A.Is replacing Humans for their jobs, according to the OECD’s(Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development) analysis, the fear of losing your job is SOMEWHAT exaggerated. That only 14 percent of jobs in OECD countries, which includes the US, UK, Canada, and Japan, are “highly automatable,” meaning their probability of automation is 70 percent or higher. In layman's terms, 14 percent have the ability of their jobs being taken by machines. Even then, many of these jobs CANNOT be done by a machine simply because of their limitations.

      Verge's example as to why was "Think about a machine operator in a factory, for example. Although a portion of their job could be automated, they may have other responsibilities (such as managing inventory and overseeing junior workers), which computers cannot manage. And consider the difference between a worker in US garment factory and its equivalent in Vietnam: the American factory is more likely to be technologically advanced, and the typical worker’s day will likely involve a greater number of non-routine tasks that resist automation."

      From researchers, they say “The risk of automation is not distributed equally among workers [...] Occupations with the highest estimated automatability typically only require basic to a low level of education.


    • Fox says Gambit Movie Might Still be in the Cards | I.G Movie News

      1 month ago


      ******video form of post

      The production of the Gambit movie has been a rocky one. The movie was officially announced in 2014, with Channing Tatum signed to the role. Unfortunately, despite Tatum's enthusiasm for the movie and his efforts to keep it alive, the production has seen three directors quit altogether, including Gore Verbinski. However, X-Men producer, Simon Kinberg claims the project isn't dead and that fans should be patient.

      The only word about any sort of production getting off the ground is the rumored start date for filming (June 19th of this year in New Orleans), speculation that director Ben Wheatley might be attached to the movie, and the possible 2019 release date. Very little information has come out otherwise, and both fans and the producers are unsure of the future of the X-Men film series, especially following the Fox/Disney buyout. As of now, nobody is sure about what will happen.

      The other issue is all the other X-Men movies that are being filmed. Deadpool 2 is set to release later this month and is expected to springboard an X-Force series. X-Men: Dark Phoenix is also undergoing pre-production, and The New Mutants is currently experiencing reshoots. It's possible Gambit might be put on the backburner for all these other, larger projects.

      As Kinberg said, we'll need to be patient and wait for any concrete updates on the status of the movie. Should things go well, we might finally have a Gambit movie very soon.
