The Napoleon Bonaparte movie from director Ridley Scott and starring Joaquin Phoenix is close to signing another star. Killing Eve's Jodie Comer is the top pick to play Josephine, Bonaparte's wife, according to Deadline's sources. The site's sources said it's still "early" in the process, so Comer hasn't officially signed on yet. However, Deadline said Comer is Scott's top choice and "all signs point to it coming together." The movie is called Kitbag and it's being made for Apple TV+. It probably won't release anytime soon, as Scott is currently working on the MGM crime movie House of Gucci starring Lady Gaga, moving on to Kitbag after that. Scott and Comer have worked together before, as he directed her in the period movie The Last Duel, which also stars Matt Damon, Ben Affleck, and Adam Driver. "Insiders say Scott was blown away by her work during production of the film, which wrapped at the end of last year," the report said. Kitbag--which is a reference to the line, … [Read more...] about Ridley Scott’s Napoleon Bonaparte Movie Eyeing Jodie Comer For Josephine

Wasteland 3 is getting permadeath as part of a new update coming soon. Patch 1.3.3, titled Death & Taxes, adds permadeath mode as well as an optional difficult skill checks mode, respeccing, new character customisation items, and a raft of improvements and fixes. Wasteland 3's permadeath works as you imagine it should: when activated at a game's start, your characters will die good and proper when their health reaches zero. In a post on Wasteland 3's Steam page , developer inXile said permadeath is a single-player only feature that cannot be enabled in multiplayer. "As much fun as is to watch your friends subjected to painful and horrific video game deaths, co-op splits the team down the middle, and one player losing everyone and then watching for (potentially) hours until the other can make it back to Ranger HQ just isn't a good time," inXile said. Of note: you can't disable permadeath once you've opted in at the start of the game. Normally, when one of your party … [Read more...] about Wasteland 3 is getting permadeath
We're republishing our 2016 ranking of Mass Effect's best and worst as we look forward to Mass Effect: Legendary Edition . A week ago I dropped my Ultimate Ranking of Mass Effect Companions into the PC Gamer Slack channel and destroyed productivity for an hour. This tends to happen whenever we talk about Mass Effect: Any conversation around the best games in the series, best missions, and most definitely the best characters. It says something about Mass Effect, that we still feel so strongly about its stories nearly a decade after entering that universe for the first time. We're just as passionate about the characters we love as we are about the ones we hate. Bioware built on the template it established with Knights of the Old Republic throughout the Mass Effect series. First they're fun diversions, filling out the world with lore. Then they become romance partners, and your interactions with them influence how they grow and change and even affect the world around them. In … [Read more...] about The Mass Effect trilogy companions, ranked
Fortnite Season 6 should be arriving very soon, and the wait has only grown greater with the extra-long Season 5 heading into its 14th week. But when will Fortnite Season 5 end, when will Fortnite Season 6 start, and what can we expect when it arrives? When Does Fortnite Season 6 Start? Epic Games has not provided the actual start date for Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 6, but it has provided the end date for Season 5. Fortnite's Season 5 battle pass is only available until March 15, which is a Monday. Presumably, this means Season 6 will begin on March 16 , as Season 5 also began on a Tuesday. We'll probably see a large-scale event to kick it all off. Challenges for the season will likely become available a few days later, as we've been getting them on Thursdays. It's unclear what form those will take, but they'll likely include whatever wacky new elements Epic Games adds for Season 6. What Will Season 6 Include? Fortnite Season 5 has involved a mysterious "Zero Point," with … [Read more...] about Fortnite: When Does Season 6 Start?
