After the extremely well received Deadpool movie, it was tough for any fan not to be impatient for news of a sequel. For a while, we were only getting what seemed like bad news. Tim Miller, the director of the first film, walked due to creative differences involving story and casting. It was hard not to be a little nervous. But then we got casting news. Seasoned actor Josh Brolin was officially cast as Cable. This seemed to be good news for fans. Aside from the confusion over him playing two different Marvel characters, as he is already Thanos and he is set to appear in Avengers Infinity Wars.

Brolin has not been taking the role lightly. Literally, the actor has been filling his social media with photos and videos of his vigorous weight training regimen on his transformation journey into Cable. Now, we have a post from Instagram of Brolin in the makeup chair for Cable. Which is stellar news for fans, because this means filming on the highly anticipated sequel is about to be underway. While this isn’t exactly a leaked set photo, it is still very exciting for comic book fans. He also seems to be extremely excited about the role and has even been posting funny banter towards Deadpool costar Ryan Reynolds.

The expected release date for Deadpool 2 is slated for June 1st, 2018, but there is a strong possibility the date could change. At least this news tells us the film is well on its way and Josh Brolin is looking good.

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.

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.
