A successful movie trailer teases events and leaves audiences wondering, and that’s exactly what the trailer for Thor: Ragnarok does. But what else can you expect from a video that shows Thor’s trusted hammer, Mjolnir, being completely obliterated? And Asgard being engulfed in a wave of fire.

To say events escalate quickly in the trailer would be an understatement. Mjolnir is a weapon of near indescribable power, which is why one must be worthy to wield it. On occasion, Mjolnir has been destroyed in the comics, usually by being sliced by an ultra-powerful uber-sword…but to be shattered by someone’s bare hands? That moment in the trailer shows just how much of a threat and how much of a bad-ass the movie’s main villain, Hela, is. The whole “douse Asgard in flames” scene almost seems like an afterthought in comparison.

So, what happens after Thor loses Mjolnir? He is captured by aliens who would look at home in Guardians of the Galaxy, taken to an alien planet, and forced to fight in gladiatorial combat. Against Hulk. That’s right, Thor: Ragnarok is using plot elements from Planet Hulk. Oh, and Loki is involved somehow, because at this point he’s basically the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s mascot (not that I’m complaining). If I had to complain about anything, it’s Thor’s new Kratos-esque face tattoo, but that will probably be explained and make sense in the movie.

Whoever directed this trailer, I tip my hat to you. You were supposed to hype up the movie and get me excited, and you did not disappoint. I look forward to watching Thor: Ragnarok in theaters November 3rd, and so should everyone else.

All you have to do to get my attention is talk about video games, technology, anime, and/or Dungeons & Dragons - also people in spandex fighting rubber suited monsters.

The Twin-Linked Autocannon EXO-49 Emancipator Exosuit was teased for players of Helldivers 2

Helldivers 2 players now have a new major order that, if completed, will bring the EXO-49 Emancipator Exosuit into action. This is something we’ve been looking forward to since March, when we first caught a grainy glimpse of the machine in action. We loved the older EXO-45 Patriot model, which has a Gatling gun and a bunch of powerful missiles, but we could see ourselves going in a different direction, especially when we were up against the Automatons.

They will have to put in some work, though, as is always the case. Helldivers need to free an Automaton “Petafactory” in order to start making these good horses for mass deployment. It’s time to teach the people of Varylia 5 how to run a managed democracy, if only for our own good.

Are you a fan of the EXO-45 Patriot mech, or are you having trouble fitting it into your tried-and-true plans? What do you think about the EXO-49 amnesty? Does it make you want to? Leave a comment below and let us know.

Hideo Kojima is George Miller’s first choice for a video game adaptation of Mad Max

George Miller, who directed the Mad Max movies, thinks that people are ready for another adventure game. However, only a game made at “the highest level” by an auteur, like Hideo Kojima of Metal Gear Solid and Death Stranding fame, will do.

It’s been said that Kojima thinks of George Miller as a god, and the Mad Max series is his personal Bible. On paper, this seems like a perfect match. Miller said that he would “never ask” the famous game designer to make such a game because he is sure that Kojima already has “so much fantastic stuff in his own head.” The “will they/won’t they” moment was caught on camera on the red carpet at the premiere of Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga.

The most recent Mad Max video game, which came out in 2015, “wasn’t as good as I wanted it to be,” says Miller. We hope Miller or at least one of his employees can get these two movie moguls to work on something together. We are sure Kojima would be very pleased.
