If you didn't see Avengers: Infinity War on opening night, traversing the internet was a dangerous place. Early moviegoers were discussing the film everywhere, and the spoilers were abundant. However, what if the problem wasn't the average Twitter user but a main cast member? Well, that's exactly what happened when Mark Ruffalo spoiled the ending of the movie, in July 2017. Warning: There are Infinity War spoilers ahead.Last year, Don Cheadle and Mark Ruffalo were interviewed by Good Morning America, and the two were discussing Infinity War at Disney's D23 Expo. Ruffalo said that the movie won't end well for the superheroes. The interviewer went on to add that someone always gets hurt in the films, and Ruffalo interrupted adding, "Wait till you see this next one, half... everybody dies." And the look on Cheadle's face was priceless.A disappointed Cheadle quickly responded by saying, "Du-dude" as Ruffalo realized his error and asked GMA producers to rewind it while saying, "Am I in … [Read more...] about Mark Ruffalo Spoiled Avengers: Infinity War 9 Months Ago

All calmed down from Avengers: Infinity War? Good. Ant-Man and the Wasp is next up except, if you’re on the wrong side of the Atlantic, you’re going to have one hell of a wait on your hands. While the US release for Ant-Man and the Wasp is set at July 6, the UK equivalent is 28 days later on August 3. So, why is it coming so late?The World CupNo, you haven’t read that incorrectly. Yahoo Movies posits that this summer’s tournament in Russia will leave British (well, English, because every other Home Nation are clearly terrible and didn’t qualify) audiences all tuckered out when it comes time to go to theaters.“The worry for film distributors is that audiences will be caught up in the tournament,” says film journalist Charles Gant (via Yahoo). Well, that’s that then, surely? Maybe it’s not that simple…It's about time the US get dibs, right?Guess how many MCU movies got earlier release dates in the UK compared to the US?

Fighting game ARMS was Nintendo’s big new Switch-exclusive IP of 2017, and still has a passionate community almost 9 months after its initial release. Even though Nintendo has stopped producing new content updates for ARMS, it doesn’t seem like they are ignoring its game and community.

The ARMS US & Canada Online Open will be running from today, March 8, until March 18 in the game’s online Ranked Match mode. These matches will serve as preliminary rounds, with the top eight players then participating in Online Finals on March 31.

Developer Aurum Dust has announced that Ash of the Gods, its gorgeous narrative-focused tactical RPG, will be heading to Steam on March 23rd, with PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Switch versions due later this year. Ash of the Gods is, as you'll no doubt notice as you peruse the announcement video below, very heavily inspired by developer Stoic Studio's critically acclaimed The Banner Saga series - and Aurum Dust readily acknowledges the games' influence. Ash of the Gods utilises a similar blend of gloomy, branching, visual-novel-style storytelling - where one bad choice can wipe a character out for good - alongside turn-based tactical combat, and even a similar (and thus equally striking) animation and art style. Like the Banner Saga too, Ash of the Gods is planned to be a trilogy, with this initial entry carrying the subtitle Redemption. Ash of the Gods does manage to stretch its legs a little, however. Its universe is a blend European, Chinese, Japanese, and Arabic medieval cultures, … [Read more...] about Banner Saga-inspired Ash of the Gods launches on PC this month, later this year on consoles
After much anticipation, Street Fighter V released on PC and PS4 on February 16, 2016. Many hoped the title would take the long-running series to even greater heights, as it was running on a new engine, introduced new characters, and had an intriguing new V-Gauge system to make fights even more interesting. Unfortunately, the title was met with disappointment by many fans initially at launch, as the lack of purely single player content was underwhelming. Now, almost two years later, Capcom has made tons of improvements to the game and released Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition, which bolsters the game’s single-player content greatly. While you can make the argument that the game should have been this feature-full at launch, if you have been hesitant to jump into Street Fighter V, now is probably the best time to do so since launch. To fully understand the improvements that have been made, you must be aware of what was present when the game … [Read more...] about Street Fighter V, Two Years Later: Where is it Now?
