Worms, American cinema, and a fake Batman game

It’s Friday, so it’s time to revisit TheGamer’s best features of the week, giving ourselves a big pat on the back. From the rise of African cinema to the Streets of New Capenna’s lack of police, we’ve been busy covering a wide range of topics over the past seven days.

As MultiVersus continues to go strong, She-Hulk is gone – bringing Marvel’s VFX issues back into the limelight – and Spider-Man is headed to PC. The game (and, in this case, the MCU juggernaut) is not slow and we have a lot to say about it.

Are we witnessing the rise of American cinema?

From Black Panther to Beast to The Woman King, American cinema is as diverse as ever. The editor Stacey Henley sat down with her popcorn in hand, listening to the family’s music begin to play, hoping to see Idris Elba and his body guns. much on the screen. But he was joined by John Boyega and Viola Davis. He expected The Beast but got a very different movie in The Woman King.

This boom in African cinema is a huge step forward for representation, embracing Africa’s rich history without relying on white redemption stories or stories from non-existent perspectives. do them right.

I don’t want to hear anyone tell me Marvel’s VFX team is trying their best


It didn’t go over so well in the world of cinema, though, as Marvel continued to come under fire for the poor performance of its VFX teams. There is no in-house team because Marvel Studios hires many teams to edit its big blockbusters from Endgame to Thor: Love and Thunder. And with these studios, it makes big changes at the last minute, shortens deadlines without warning, makes ridiculous demands, and churns out movies and TV like there’s no tomorrow. , is fueling an awesome crunch culture. Stacey said, what we need to discuss is how these organizations are managed, not how hard they work.

Games must stop fearing the word ‘Transgender’

I promise I’m not trying to score brownie points with the boss by posting three Stacey stories in a row, but this is a big one to touch on. Guilty Gear’s Bridget was born a man and raised a woman, proudly claiming to be a girl, and later coming to terms with her trans identity. But Guilty Gear is cool about it and he’s worried when he says, “I’m trans!” Same goes for Krem in Dragon Age: Inquisition and Lev in The Last of Us Part 2. As the show improves, it’s clear that there’s a lot more to do.

The Owl House and Amphibia Fandoms Are Full of Worm Memes And I’m Really Scared

Looking at something a little more serious, Jade King features leading figures in the world of cartoons and… worm memes. The Worm House and Wormphibia are the latest trends on the web, an outrageous combination of children’s toys and animated shows that I wish I didn’t know were put together, but here we are. The creators also noticed the fandom’s mischief, starting on a Discord forum where someone pointed out that Hunter’s hair looked like a Squirmle. You gotta take care of yourself, bud.

Wolfe Glick reveals what he’ll be doing to compete in the VGC Pokemon World Championships

Wolfe Glick

Freelancer Lowell Bell posted by the office of TheGamer (100 percent real, person) the next day to bring us their interview with others on the Pokemon World Championship winner Wolfe Glick. Perhaps the closest thing to a real life Pokemon Master in existence. They talk about the difference between creating content and competition, how their journey into the world of Pokemon began, and his first success, becoming the 2016 VGC World champion .

The streets of MTG of New Capenna’s biggest fault is the lack of police

Board game editor Joe Parlock sat down to tell us all about one of his most anticipated Magic: The Gathering releases of the year – Streets of New Capenna. But his attitude has changed since he started a few months ago. Gatsby is a great world, a great change of scenery from MTG’s usual backdrop, but for all its glitz and ’20s glamour, it lacks police. What was supposed to be part of the crooked police force, the Brokers have become lawyers, meaning that this is a crime-centric organization without a legal system. Being independent and avoiding political views will drag it down.

Meet Batman: Arkham World – The Batman Game Not Available

Arkham World

Gotham Knights and The Suicide Squad continue to dominate the world of DC games, but Reddit focuses elsewhere, on the fourth Arkham. Not available. Arkham World is a meme that makes everyone jump, whether they’re imagining a playable Alfred, teaming up with Saul Goodman, or butting heads with Sonic in the fictional metropolis criminal. And now that we’ve covered it – twice at that – we’ve killed it. As Stacey wrote, Arkham World fans love it.

Fighting games are different stories

MultiVersus is here and it’s sparking conversations about the multiverse. again. Between Spider-Verse, Everything Everywhere at Once, Doctor Strange, Spider-Man: No Way Home, and now MultiVersus, it’s the hottest topic in history. But as feature editor Andrew King pointed out, fighting games are nothing new. Years ago, Scorpion broke Flash’s arm in Mortal Kombat vs. DC, while Marvel vs. Capcom is a serious competitor of this era. Smash Bros. is looking elsewhere at competitors from Pac-Man to Minecraft Steve to Sora.

Please, no more ads

Spider-Man is on PC, joining Day’s Gone, God of War, Horizon Zero Dawn, and Death Stranding. But fans have found references to a real PS publisher for PC in its files, which means we may have a new program to download to get the game. Xbox, uPlay, Battle.net, EA Desktop, Origin, Epic Games Store, Steam – the list goes on. And Stacey is tired – aren’t we all?

Rockstar will always be the kings of video games

If I can say one thing about News Lead George Foster from our conversation at work on Slack, it’s that he likes a good customer. Rockstar is different though. Rockstar isn’t your typical blockbuster movie maker, playing up the hype through a flurry of teasers and teasers, creating an event – it’s the trailer king. He knows how to create his games in those short snippets, showing the worlds that we hold for decades. Just look at GTA 5’s iconic trailer.
