Inhumans Trailer Shows What Couldn’t Make the MCU’s Cut

Comic book fans were excited to hear that Inhumans were announced to be a part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe a while back. Eventually, they dropped it from the MCU and announced that it would be made into a series. Now we finally received our first trailer for the show. We got a small look at the main cast of characters such as Black Bolt, Maximus, Auran, Gordon, Karnak, and the list goes on. We even get a look at Black Bolt’s companion Lockjaw.

A couple months back, some set photos were released of the characters and they were not exactly well received. Mostly concerning Black Bolts super snazzy leather outfit. Now that we have a trailer, the response is somewhat more positive. We get a taste of the drama brewing between Black Bolt and his Brother Maximus about going to Earth. While the Inhumans have also been tied to the series Agents of Shield, it has been confirmed that Inhumans is a standalone series.

Hopefully, Marvel will make better decisions with the Inhumans series, as the initial release of Agents Of Shield was not well received. It’s tough to think they can bring another series back from the dead if they misstep. Although information concerning crossovers has been very vague, it’s hard to think that they would not capitalize on this opportunity. Especially, since every other part of the universe has been tied together. While Inhumans is still a little ways off, it’s slated to drop September 1st, at least we have a little piece of what to expect.

I have always let my imagination run wild. Now that I am an adult, not much has changed. Now I spend most of my free time doing so through video games, film, television, and comics.

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.

Reflecting on Street Fighter 5’s tumultuous launch, Capcom looks back eight years later

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.
