Rumors can be fickle. Regardless of their validity, they can either make or break the hype for a video game, television show, or movie, and regrettably, the purported leak of Marvel vs. Capcom Infinite’s character roster isn’t doing the game many favors.

Earlier today, NeoGAF user Ryce (from what I have read he/she tends to be accurate) posted the leaked character roster for Marvel vs. Capcom Infinite:

Notice anything missing from the list? Not a single X-Men character or villain is in the roster. Wolverine, Storm, X-23, and Phoenix (aka. Jean Grey, not Phoenix Wright, but yes he also isn’t in this roster) are missing, which is strange since Wolverine has been a staple of the Marvel vs. Capcom franchise since the first game. Even X-Men villains Magneto and the Sentinel robot aren’t present. This lack of representation is even more depressing when you realize that characters such as Colossus, Cyclops, Juggernaut, and Gambit have been missing since Marvel vs. Capcom 3. Yet somehow, the mad titan Thanos is making his return in Marvel vs. Capcom Infinite.

The news is not all bad, though. The main antagonist of the Darkstalkers franchise, Jedah, will finally appear in the Marvel vs. Capcom franchise, as will Gamora, Groot, Captain Marvel, Ultron, and the nameless Monster Hunter protagonist. Of course, the list doesn’t include Mega Man X villain Sigma, which implies that the list is incomplete and, at the very least, does not include DLC characters. However, Ryce did later confirm that Spider-Man on-again off-again villain Venom will return as DLC, ableit at an unspecified date.

With luck, we can determine the accuracy of Ryce’s leak during E3 2017. With even more luck, Capcom plans to include X-Men characters in Marvel vs Capcom Infinite. If not, we will just have to hope the company includes them in the inevitable updated re-release of the game.

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.

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.
