John Wick was a really good movie that I enjoyed watching along with my cousin. It is about an ex hit-man who decided to get retired but due to some personal reasons, he is brought back on the scene by some bad people who take everything from him and literally everything. They even killed his dog and that scene really brought me down. However, the filmmakers Chad Stahelski and David Leitch revealed that John Wick 2 will happen. Even though they didn’t set the box office on fire (they earned 78.7 million worldwide from a 20 million budget), they received good reactions from the critics, with an 85% “Fresh” rating on Rotten Tomatoes.

Keanu Reeves will return as the main character in the upcoming sequel John Wick 2, working along with the directors David Leitch and Chad Stahelski and the co-writer Derek Kolstad. Lionsgate didn’t give us a release date, but the production company Thunder Road Films announced in a press release for a different project that they will start the production for the John Wick 2 movie this fall. The writer-directors Chad and David said that they have plenty of great ideas for the upcoming sequel

We’re in development right now. We have ideas for days and without blinking twice we know we can outdo the action from the original. It’s the matter of story and how much you like the character. That’s always the most important. If there’s great action but you have a character that no one likes and doesn’t have charisma you’re not going to watch it. Look at any great action star, whether it’s Harrison Ford or Liam Neeson or Robert Downey Jr., pick a name, you love the guy first. Good action, bad action, you just love them in action. So we want to make sure we have a story and a character that everybody loves and then we’ll dress it with action that we promise will be awesome.

Keanu Reeves is a very busy man and he has plenty of upcoming projects that will hit the theaters really soon. He can be seen in the new thriller “Knock, knock” which will hit the theater on October 9. He is also starring in “The Panopticon” and “The Neon Demon”. We are very excited as well to see him in the upcoming sequel John Wick 2, right?

Raiden, the famous shmup series, will come back as a twin-stick shooter on PS5, PS4, and PC

Raiden has a long and interesting history as a vertical shooter in arcades. However, the series is going to get a Super Stardust HD makeover, which means it will switch to a twin-stick format. It comes out in Japan on October 31. There’s no word yet on when it will come out in the West, but we wouldn’t be surprised if it did.

A Gematsu translation of the game’s website says that the full version will have an arcade mode with up to six stages. There will also be an “Unlimited” option for people who want to be at the top of the rankings. It sounds like a pretty straightforward package in terms of what’s inside, but we think the action will be what makes it worth it.

There’s a trailer up top that should help you figure out what to expect. There are, however, different versions of Raiden 3, Raiden 4, and Raiden 5 that you can play right now on the PS5 and PS4, if you can’t wait for this game to come out in the West.

Star Wars Outlaws gives you a deep dive into its huge PS5 open world

The marketing for Star Wars Outlaws makes a big deal out of the fact that it is the “first” open-world Star Wars game, even though Star Wars Jedi: Survivor was already pretty much that. Still, Massive Entertainment, the company that made The Division 2, makes it all seem to work together smoothly, which is likely where the difference lies. Now, that open world is the subject of an IGN First video that goes into great detail about how the playable universe works and all the things you can do in it. See it up there.

Higher-ups at Massive Entertainment talk about how the game is meant to feel like a new cinematic story experience, even though it has no clear ending in the 21-minute video. The main missions will have hand-crafted set pieces that make it feel like Uncharted, and the open world will be huge and full of things to discover.

It’s official that you’ll have to clear a fog of war when you land on a new planet. This means that your map won’t be filled with icons right away; you’ll have to find places and quests on your own. In the deep dive, there are also more things to talk about when it comes to the loyalty system, your reputation, and your skills. You have chosen Star Wars: Outlaws as your second-most-anticipated game for the rest of 2024. It will be out on PS5 on August 30, 2024. It only lost to Astro Bot, which came out a week later.

Nike, the maker of high-quality shoes, is working with Bandai Namco, the company that makes the Tekken series, to make a pair of sneakers. The fun competition is part of the franchise’s 30th anniversary celebrations. You can get your own pair for $250 or the equivalent in your country, though they’ll probably be worth a lot more on the sneakerhead black market.

Two pairs of Tekken 8 x Nike Air Foamposite One Fist sneakers are set to come out in September 2024, according to shoe fan Sole Retriever (thanks, VGC). The designs are based on Kazuya and Jin, two main characters in the series. You can get them at Nike and some other stores. People who like hypebeasts and fighting games are likely to buy these quickly, so if you like Tekken and shoes that make people talk, you should probably act fast.

Should Bandai Namco and Nike work together? What do you think? Are you going to fight for your own pair? Make sure to take good care of your shoes and keep their value in the comments section below.
