Power season 2
Powers, the first and so far only PlayStation Originals show, is back for its second season, premiering with its first three episodes. Just like before, season 2 is free for PS Plus members, every episode available to stream through the PlayStation Store, releasing one a week going forward.Based on the widely-loved independent comic of the same name by Brian Michael Bendis and Michael Avon Oemig, Powers takes place in a world where people with superpowers are essentially celebrities, complete with agents and advertising deals. The show follows Christian Walker, a former superhero who lost his powers and became a cop.When Powers first hit the PSN early last year, it certainly wasn’t the best show around. Even with a solid cast led by District 9’s Shalto Coply, and both of the original comic’s creators executive producing, the show suffered from a clearly restrained budget. Couple the less than spectacular special effects with a few lackluster plotlines and the first … [Read more...] about Powers Season 2 Episodes 1-3 review
The PlayStation Originals show Powers is back for a second season and is going “bigger and bolder.” Releasing the first trailer for the new season, Brian Michael Bendis, the original writer of the comic the series is based on, and one of the executive producers and writers for the show, posted on the PlayStation Blog saying, “This season our storyline is focused on the biggest case in Powers’ comic book history: who Killed Retro Girl?”For those that haven’t checked out season one, Powers follows Homicide Detectives Walker and Pilgrim as they fight to keep order in a world of super heroes. As you can guess, the simple act of trying to arrest people that can fly or punch holes in walls becomes a bit tricky.Aside from the returning cast, season two will also be introducing Tricia Helfer (Battlestar Galactica), Enrico Colantoni (Veronica Mars), and Wil Wheaton (Star Trek: The Next Generation). But to an even further degree, “Remi Aubuchon, our … [Read more...] about First trailer for Powers season 2
The changes to the system in Street Fighter 5 Season 2 are very technical in nature, but in a game like this a change as seemingly superfluous as dropping a single frame of animation can send shock waves through its entire world. Let’s get into it. Invincible attacksThe most-discussed change and the only one with any genuine controversy; even top players like Infiltration have expressed their displeasure.Fully invincible attacks (like the shoryuken) are all EX moves now: They require 1 bar of the critical meter. Regular shoryukens still exist, but they will not go through your opponent’s attacks like, for example, Ken’s medium punch shoryuken used to.A few characters in this game (Ryu, Ken, Cammy, Necalli) had access to invincible moves at no cost. Though this wasn’t a dominating advantage, the psychological advantage of being able to pull out a shoryuken at any time, as many times as one wants, is formidable. Ask Daigo.These characters still have their … [Read more...] about Street Fighter 5 guide: What’s different in Street Fighter 5 Season 2?
The season two finale of CW's The Flash was everything I could have hoped for. Not only did the writers stick to a single, meaty narrative but they gave much needed closure to the series' most troubled characters. And then, in its final moments, Barry did something completely insane. His actions will have far-reaching consequences for Central City, and potentially the entire televised DC multiverse.The episode opened on Barry Allen's (Grant Gustin's) grief-stricken face, screaming and weeping as he watched Zoom (Teddy Sears) murder his father in cold blood."I told you family was a weakness," Zoom growls. "Use your anger, just like I did."The ensuing battle between the two speedsters lasted a good few minutes, with both of them running up and down city streets and the side of buildings. At one point Zoom spawns a second time remnant, and that's when things start to get a little weird.To drive home his point about focusing rage through the Speed Force, Zoom sneaks up and murders … [Read more...] about The Flash season 2 finale was everything fans wanted, until it wasn’t
