All Star Cast Joins Ratchet & Clank Movie

Sony has announced that John Goodman, Sylvester Stalone, Bella Thorne, & others have joined the cast of the Ratchet & Clank movie

“Video game movie” is a phrase that can make gamers everywhere cringe in horror and cry out to leave their favorite gaming series off the big screen. Anyone who has seen just a small part of the Super Mario Bros. or Bloodrayne movies can tell you game movies have never done well. That’s why it was no surprise that fans didn’t jump for joy when the Ratchet & Clank movie was announced by Sony. No one had faith that the universe hopping duo would receive a movie that did them justice.

Sony undeterred by fans worries set out determined to change people’s view of video game movies by hiring Rainmaker Entertainment and Blockade Entertainment. They promised to stay true to Ratchet & Clank’s art style and humor, even bringing in the original voice actors of the characters. A trailer for the movie proved that Sony was sticking to their promises but since then there’s been no more information put out; until today when Insomniac and Sony broke their silence.

Announcing that the Ratchet & Clank movie is still in development, and that familiar big name voices would be joining the movies cast. Sony released details that John Goodman (The Big Lebowski, Roseanne), Sylvester Stalone (Rocky, Rambo), Bella Thorne (Blended), Rosario Dawson (Sin City, Daredevil), and Paul Giamatti (Sideways, Shoot ’em Up) will all be adding their voices to the movie. Giamatti will be taking on the role of Chairman Drek (the main villain of the movie), Goodman will be playing Grimoth, Stallone is set to be Victor, Dawson as Elaris, and Thorne as Cora.

Sony held back information on who these characters are and what role they’ll be playing so we’ll simply have to wait for a new trailer to learn more. Still, fans can be excited to hear that such an all star cast will be joining the original Ratchet & Clank voice actors James Arnold Taylor as Ratchet, David Kaye returning as Clank, Jim Ward again voicing the “great hero” Captain Quark, and most excitingly Armin Shimerman as Dr. Nefarious. Blockade CEO Brad Foxhoven is certainly excited to see the star studded cast join the movies ranks:

“We are honored and thrilled to have these actors join our cast. Their unique voices, and the level of humor and emotion they bring to their roles will help to create some endearing and memorable characters in the film.”

If the cast announcement wasn’t enough to get fans excited Sony also released new details about the movies plot and a 2016 release date. The story will follow Ratchet & Clank who have teamed up with a group known as the Galactic Rangers in order to stop the evil Chairman Drek from wiping out all the planets in the universe. It’s just too bad that no new trailer accompanied this announcement so that fans could get an idea of how it’s progressing. Gamers will still be hard pressed to believe that a game movie can ever be better than what they saw in the Heavenly Sword film.

Metallica takes center stage on the battle arena of the Fortnite Festival, showcasing their musical prowess in an epic PVP showdown

Metallica will be headlining the Battle Stage at the Fortnite Festival, and fans can look forward to an epic performance later today, on the 13th of June. The entire lineup of the legendary heavy metal band has been transformed into digital avatars for the ever-growing gaming platform. Fans can now enjoy their greatest hits and even engage in a thrilling musical player-versus-player game mode.

The collaboration between Metallica and Fortnite marks the start of Fortnite Festival Season 4, featuring an exciting lineup of six Metallica songs, such as “Enter Sandman,”  “Fuel,”  and “Ride the Lightning.”. Additional songs will be introduced as the season progresses. By choosing Epic’s premium Festival Pass, you’ll have the opportunity to unlock all four Metallica band members as playable skins. How about a showdown between Lars Ulrich and Goku?

The aspect that captures our attention is the 16-player musical battle royale. The Battle Stage offers a challenging experience that pushes players to their limits, requiring both physical stamina and a captivating stage presence. Players will find themselves immersed in the intense energy of the four tracks playing simultaneously. Perform with skill, and you can unleash powerful bursts of musical energy, causing less talented individuals to falter and be defeated, with the ultimate victor being crowned the Master of Puppets (most likely).

In addition to that, Metallica will be making an appearance at the Rocket Racing tent, complete with a specially designed track, car, and LEGO replicas of the band members. Is there anything more intense than that?

Do you enjoy Metallica’s music? Could anyone have predicted that the band would rise to prominence in a video game primarily aimed at a younger audience who may not be familiar with their music? And now, let’s turn our attention to the comments section below.

Star Wars Outlaws PS5 Demo Falls Short of Delivering the Full Experience, According to Critic

Star Wars Outlaws, although it appeared visually stunning during Ubisoft’s livestream earlier this week, has received some criticism for feeling somewhat outdated. A preview unfavorably compared the release to Uncharted: Golden Abyss, the PS Vita exclusive spin-off that was launched in 2011. However, according to the creative director, the sampler is merely a small taste of what the full experience has to offer.

“When entering a show of this nature, where you’re finalizing a game’s production, you’re faced with numerous decisions. Our producer limited us to just one demo for all the shows we would attend throughout the year, such as Gamescom and Comic-Con,” Julian Gerighty explained in an interview with VGC.

He explained that the events are designed to cater to both consumers and journalists. To ensure an engaging experience, they opted for a 20-minute format that offers a diverse range of content and showcases different game systems. However, they intentionally avoided showcasing the open-world experience at this particular event, as they plan to unveil it during the studio tour and preview event. This will be a brief overview, more of an appetizer than a full meal when it comes to the game.

According to Gerighty, the developer Massive Entertainment has crafted a highly engaging game, with only a portion of its greatness showcased here.

Admittedly, the comments do make sense. It’s common knowledge that creating demos requires a significant amount of the team’s focus. If a game plans to showcase itself at consumer conventions, it can’t just offer a short gameplay experience of two or three hours. That simply won’t suffice when attendees are patiently waiting in line. This seems to be just a subpar demo, which is unfortunate. However, it may not be something to worry too much about in the end.

Ubisoft has given us our first look at The Sky Breaker, the first DLC story pack for Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora. In it, a strange shadow will appear in the sky and threaten the Na’vi clans, who just can’t seem to get a break. It comes out next month on PS5, on July 16th.

A new part of the Upper Plains called “The Heart of the Plains” can be reached by taking the Sky Breaker. Some well-known biomes have changed into new types, and there are also many new ones. Of course, the RDA has also sent out new types of enemies, so you need to be careful. The good news is that not everything is bad. During the Na’vi Festival of Games, players can look forward to timed tasks that are a little less scary. Secrets of the Spires, another story pack, is still planned to be added to the game at some point.
