First SHAZAM! Trailer from San Diego Comic-con 2018 is here

The first Shazam movie traiiler from SDCC is here

 

 

 

At the San Diego Comic-con event, DC Films revealed the highly anticipated first movie trailer for Shazam, starring Zachary Levi (Shazam) and Asher Angel (Billy Batson) as the main protaganists they are a duo superhero team who share a body, the child can shapeshift into Shazam and back into his true form. This trailer is light hearted, funny and humorous

The first Shazam, is here and it is joyful, full of passion and full of comedy, to me DC are trying to move away from their typical dark and gritty theme in movies for example movies such as: Justice League (2017), Man of Steel and Batman vs Super: Dawn of Justice. 

The trailer introduces us to Billy Batson, a kid who’s introduced to a new foster family and school. After fighting off a couple of bullies, he’s chosen by a wizard called Shazam, who tells him that if he utters his name, he’ll gain superpowers. He does, and he abruptly turns into an adult hero. Think Big, but with superpowers — he works on trying to figure out what his powers are — zapping people’s phones to charge them and discovers that he’s bullet proof. It looks like a surprisingly funny and zany superhero film, which will be a huge turn from the incredibly grim DC films like Man of Steel and Batman V. Superman.

The character is the first to be introduced that wasn’t part of that initial batch of heroes in Justice League, which makes a bit of sense: DC has pulled back from its more ambitious overarching Expanded Universe in favor of films that are a bit more standalone following the success of Wonder Woman. While that means that the character isn’t as readily recognizable to filmgoing audiences, Marvel has certainly demonstrated in the last decade that it can maintain a superhero franchise with characters that audiences aren’t as familiar with, like Ant-Man or Iron Man. DC and Warner Bros. is undoubtably hoping that standalone films featuring these types of characters will bring the same success to its own, beleaguered series.

Shazam opens on April 19th, 2019.

SHURI IS GETTING HER OWN SOLO BOOK FROM MARVEL COMICS

Marvel Comics will officially launch a brand new comic book which focuses on the Princess of Wakanda, Shuri.

The upcoming series will see the amazing, technical, genius character written by award-winning writer, Nnedi Okorafor. Okorafor experience and skill is tremendous she co-wrote the digital series Black Panther: Long Live the King, alongside screenwriter and comic book writer Aaron Covington.

 

Shuri
(Carlos Pacheco, Rafael Fonteriz & Laura Martin/Marvel)

 

Bustle via the original source stated that, Okorafor said, “[Shuri is] an African young woman of genius level intelligence who is obsessed with technology and has traveled spiritually so far into the past that she’s seen Wakanda before it was Wakanda. The Ancestors call her Ancient Future. And she’s super ambitious. What do I love about her? Alllll that and more. She’s a character in the Marvel Universe who really sings to me.”

The official synopsis for the series from Marvel is: “Shuri is happiest in a lab, surrounded by gadgets of her own creation. She’d rather be testing gauntlets than throwing them. But a nation without a leader is a vulnerable one — and Shuri may have to choose between Wakanda’s welfare and her own.”

The 0.9 update of Escape from Tarkov introduced the first Scav boss, as well as stun and smoke grenades

ST. PETERSBURG, RUSSIA –  JULY 19 2018

Battlestate Games announces the release of a major update 0.9.0.*** for the closed beta version of its multiplayer online FPS Escape from Tarkov. The developers have specifically noted that in the first hours after the update, game servers may experience overload leading to possible increase of matching wait time and occasional network delays.

This version of the game has added a new character – the Dealmaker, first of the planned Scav bosses, who runs a small but capable gang of four. According to the idea of developers, the behavior of all bosses, if compared against regular Scavs, will be more complex and thoughtful. In case of heavy casualties they can rally other Scavs to their assistance, and tend to use a more advanced combat equipment. For instance, the Dealmaker’s gang arsenal features a variety of ranged and close-combat weapons, grenades, and all of the gang members use medical supplies when necessary. The appearance of the boss, clad in leather jacket, is more aggressive and charismatic. The main qualities of the Dealmaker are distinct leadership skills and the ability to keep his posse in order, moving across the neighborhood in group. The gang carries out reconnaissance on the orders of the boss, keeping other Scavs at distance. In firefights, they keep changing positions and reacting to enemy actions and operating accordingly. Meanwhile, Dealmaker himself prefers to avoid a fair fight, taking cover and attacking warily but accurately from the behind that cover. The Dealmaker and his entourage can be spotted in the dorm blocks or in the vicinity of the gas station at the Customs.

This update features the very first version of the Scav bosses, their features and abilities are not final and will be enhanced and adjusted over subsequent updates.

 

 

 

Another important addition of the update features stun and smoke grenades. The game developers have added animations, models and effects of Russian grenades, and planning to add their Western counterparts later. The smoke from grenades is physically accurate and realistically fills the indoor premises and open battlefields, making the gameplay even more diverse and immersive. Rational and efficient use of such munition has a potential of providing a serious advantage in battle or even decide its outcome. Moreover, the game now also features armbands of basic colors, for players to pick the color to make it easier to tell friend from foe in combat.

Finally, the studio has embedded the Nvidia Highlights, which will allow to record the episodes of intense firefights during the raids. This option is available to players whose graphics card  supports this technology.

“With this patch we have added to the game approximately 50 new weapon mods and 30 new items, 14 new trader quests, and made numerous changes, fixes and improvements,” said Nikita Buyanov, the head of the Battlestate Games. “Also, our programmers continuously work on performance optimization which gradually furthers the game to the next stage – open beta testing. Also, it won’t be long before we are going to stage a major game event. You don’t want to miss the announcement, this will be awesome! “

Complete list of additions and changes included in version 0.9.0 can be found at the official forum of the project and in social media communities. The following updates, along other improvements and changes, are going to further improve the project performance, network quality, bug fixes, add new game combat mechanics. Development and testing of the future innovations are already underway.

Learn more about the project testing plans and the estimated completion time frame, and purchase the game on the official website of the project https://www.escapefromtarkov.com/preorder-page.

You can get a pulse on the current announcements about in-game events and scheduled maintenance works by following the official Twitter of the studio https://twitter.com/bstategames or the Telegram channel https://t.me/escapefromtarkovEN

About Escape from Tarkov

Escape from Tarkov is a hardcore realistic story-driven online multiplayer game that combines features of FPS/TPS, combat simulation and RPG with MMO elements.

Players will assume the role of one of the mercenaries, the survivors of the initial stage of Tarkov conflict. After selecting one of the parties – USEC or BEAR – the player’s character begins his arduous journey in quest for ways of getting out of the city. All exits from Tarkov have been blocked by UN peacekeepers and Russian troops, all supply lines are cut off, and the link with the command is lost. In these conditions everyone has to make his own choices of what to do and how to get out of the chaos-ridden metropolis.

SPYRO REIGNITED TRILOGY BRINGS THE BEAT TO FANS AT SAN DIEGO COMIC-CON

Stewart Copeland (The Police) Returns with New Main Theme Music for the Spyro Reignited Trilogy

Just in Time to Celebrate the Franchise’s 20th Anniversary

New In-Game Feature Allows Nostalgic Fans to Seamlessly Switch Between Original and Remastered Soundtracks in Game!

Spyro soared in to Comic-Con® International: San Diego with news that’s sure to get fans fired up! Activision, a wholly owned subsidiary of Activision Blizzard, Inc. (NASDAQ: ATVI), and Toys For Bob announced today the return of Stewart Copeland (The Police) to the Spyrofranchise. Copeland, the series’ original composer, revealed a clip of the new soundtrack main theme featured in Spyro™ Reignited Trilogy to fans during the Spyro: Reigniting a Legend panel.  Known as “Tiger Train,” Copeland’s new intro reprises recognisable music motifs from the first three Spyro games into a memorable, orchestral-rock journey.

And the Spyro nostalgia beat doesn’t end there! Franchise fans can go down music memory lane as the Spyro Reignited Trilogy brings a new in-game audio feature that allows players to switch between Copeland’s
original and the newly remastered soundtracks. Players can simply fly in to the “options menu” at any time during gameplay, unleash their preferred nostalgic or scaled up groove, and glide right back into the Spyro action without losing saved data.

“Creating new music for the Spyro Reignited Trilogy has been incredibly fun and nostalgic for me,” said Stewart Copeland, acclaimed musician (The Police), film score writer and composer. “Seeing how the fans loved the original series and soundtrack was a very heart-warming experience 20 years ago, and being able to revisit that fun with the new game has brought things full circle. I can’t wait for players to hear the new intro title track and enjoy the option to play the remastered game to my original music when the trilogy arrives this fall. ‘Tiger Train’ includes some of my favorite themes from the original soundtrack, which I’m sure the Spyro faithful will appreciate!”

Spyro Reignited Trilogy developer Toys for Bob was joined today by Stewart Copeland; key members of Insomniac Games, including Ted Price, Brian Hastings and Brian Allgeier, as well as Tom Kenny (the voice of Spyro) and Michael John (producer at Universal Interactive Studios on the original Spyro trilogy) to share their favorite moments creating and remastering one of the most beloved trilogies in video game history. During the panel, fans were also treated to a first look at remastered gameplay footage from Spyro™ 2: Ripto’s Rage!
