Say what you will about the Transformers film series, but the latest trailer for the fifth installment proves they know how to make a great preview. Transformers: The Last Knight has a lot of odd parts to it that hopefully will mesh together into a coherent story. Michael Bay is back to direct the newest entry and not only gives us robots from space, he also gives us knights of the round table and Nazis. Sadly, we are not show the latter but we do get a better glimpse as to the Transformers roles during the medieval times.

The trailer shows a lot of what was already expected from earlier reveals. Optimus Prime has been discovered in space by what seems to be one of his deities after he left Earth in the down right dumb ending of Age of Extinction. Prime seems to be mentally manipulated to return to our planet and activate some sort of beacon that sets both our planet and Cybertron on a collision course. We are also shown how some of the Autobots were actual knights at King Arthur’s table which is honestly pretty cool. We see Wahlberg’s character seemingly on his own when he meets a very headstrong little girl who wants to fight against Megatron and his Decepticons. That’s right, Megatron is back again somehow.

Emotional music swelling to shots of old characters returning, Prime going on a rampage, and extinction levels of destruction make this trailer one of the best for the franchise since the original Dark of the Moon trailer.

Transformers: The Last Knight hits theaters on June 23. The movie stars Mark Wahlberg, Josh Duhamel and Anthony Hopkins. We also get the returning voice talents of Peter Cullen, John DiMaggio and Ken Watanabe.

Movies and video games are what I am all about. I consume any genre and love experiencing all kinds of games and film. From the last two sentences I think it is pretty clear what I write about.

After about a month of work, a couple of Google employees have successfully hacked the PS Portal, PlayStation’s handheld streaming solution. Their project is not set for public release anytime soon, but the hack is purely software-based, eliminating the need for hardware exploitation.

Andy Nguyen, a cloud vulnerability researcher, and Calle Svensson, a security engineer, shared their latest project on Twitter. They successfully ran the PSP emulator PPSSPP on the PS Portal. They presented the 2005 PSP classic Grand Theft Auto: Liberty Stories.

As a wireless streaming device, the idea of playing games on the PS Portal without a PS5 providing the power was considered impossible. It’s quite surprising how quickly Nguyen and Svensson have overcome this initial hurdle. It remains to be seen where their efforts will take them, but we will definitely keep an eye on their progress. Nguyen expressed that there is still a lot of work left to do.

Lady Gaga, also known as Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta, has teased an upcoming collaboration with Fortnite Festival set to be unveiled soon. More pertinent to our specific attention to detail, Gaga has also admitted to a mistake made around four years ago, indicating her keen awareness of the franchise’s significant value.

Gaga shared a mesmerizing picture of her character in Fortnite and also retweeted a post from 2019 where she asked her fans, “What’s fortnight?”. She finally got the chance to correctly spell the title of the game, allowing us to breathe a sigh of relief after waiting anxiously.

Lady Gaga will be teaming up with other top celebrities to maximize their presence on the Fortnite platform. Travis Scott once hosted a live concert in Battle Royale a couple of years ago, while the Weeknd just premiered the music video for the song “Popular” at the Fortnite Festival.

For those who may not recall, nearly eight years ago today, Street Fighter 5 was released in 2016 in a rather incomplete state. The content available was impressive initially, but the limited number of characters and lack of single-player game modes stood out. Capcom expresses regret for the entire situation, offering apologies years later for having “betrayed” players’ expectations.

On SF5’s eighth anniversary, the developers must be feeling nostalgic. They recently posted a Japanese-language tweet looking back on the mistakes made and the challenges that were eventually overcome. The number of playable characters has grown to 45, and the game has seen various enhancements, including the introduction of new abilities such as V Skills/Trigger II and V Shift. Even now, hundreds of thousands of players still choose to play this game instead of the newer Street Fighter 6.
Have you had the chance to try out Street Fighter 5 since it was first released? What do you recall about the game’s reception? Take a trip down memory lane in the comments section below.
