Borderlands Movie Villain & Plot Synopsis Revealed

The Borderlands movie’s plot got revealed today as well as the main villain which will be played by Edgar Ramirez who will be playing a character named, Atlas. Atlas is one of the major gun manufacturing companies in the game that have. Furthermore Lionsgate revealed their official plot which can be read below:

Two-time Academy Award® winner Cate Blanchett teams up with Kevin Hart in director Eli Roth’s Borderlands. Lilith (Blanchett), an infamous outlaw with a mysterious past, reluctantly returns to her home planet of Pandora to find the missing daughter of the universe’s most powerful S.O.B., Atlas (Ramirez). Lilith forms an alliance with an unexpected team – Roland (Hart), a former elite mercenary, now desperate for redemption; Tiny Tina (Greenblatt), a feral pre-teen demolitionist; Krieg (Munteanu), Tina’s musclebound, rhetorically challenged protector; Tannis (Curtis), the scientist with a tenuous grip on sanity; and Claptrap (Black), a persistently wiseass robot. These unlikely heroes must battle alien monsters and dangerous bandits to find and protect the missing girl, who may hold the key to unimaginable power. The fate of the universe could be in their hands – but they’ll be fighting for something more: each other. Based on the game from Gearbox and 2K, one of the bestselling videogame franchises of all time, welcome to Borderlands“.

Resident Evil Reboot Film Delayed By Two Months

The upcoming reboot for the Resident Evil movies has been delayed by two months from its original September release date. Now slated to come out on November 24th this film will be here just in time before the fall season is over. Horror movies thrive during the fall for obvious reasons so here’s hoping that this helps with the film’s success. Hopefully they decide to go the same day streaming / movie release with this film since it will be fall and people will more than likely be inside again during the cold season.

The director of the film, Johannes Roberts, says this movie will be “creepy as ****” so let’s hope this film delivers what fans have been missing with the original films as they were more action oriented as well as missing the famous leads from the video games. This film will have the cast starring as the leads we all come to know and love (Jill, Leon, Chris, Claire, etc). Let us know your thoughts!

DYING LIGHT 2 Gets Development Update

The developers of Dying Light 2 gave an update on development for their upcoming sequel. In the short clip we see the development team read mean tweets directed at them about how long fans have been waiting for the game or any news to come out. The developers explain that they wanted to make sure that the game coming out was ready for everybody to play at its best quality.

Both sides make a case. As gamers, we’re consumers so when we spend money on a product we would like to have full transparency about what it is we’re investing in (which means updates are appreciated). However this doesn’t excuse berating, threatening and insulting the development team of the game. Developers have personal responsibilities outside of making the games we all love and enjoy so & at the end of the day, they’re all human like us. There’s a healthy balance of staying on top of developers without being hurtful; again let’s make sure we keep that same energy for the publishers that nickel and dime us too.

It’s good that Dying Light 2 is taking its time and that the development team is able to make light of the hateful messages they got. Last year’s Cyberpunk 2077 was a great example of both sides not acting how they should’ve so it seems like the industry as a whole is taking note of it. Are you excited for Dying Light 2? Did you enjoy part 1 / DLC? Let us know your thoughts!

Fortnite is continuing to keep fans guessing as to what will come next. This weeks event, Mando’s Bounty lasts until February 9th will see players hunting bounty targets in order to earn credits.

If you manage to win the whole thing and best him in battle, then you will be rewarded with the Beskar Umbrella.

Spiderman Miles Morales Sold 4.1 Million Units For Playstation 4 / 5

Sony’s sequel to their critically acclaimed 2018 Playstation exclusive Spiderman game, Spiderman: Miles Morales has sold 4.1 million units in 2020 despite being released in the fourth quarter of the year. It’s also worth noting that the Playstation 5 has sold 4.5 million units in the same time frame for the year. It’s safe to safe that almost all Playstation 5 owners have got their hands on this Sony exclusive.

Mass Effect: Legendary Edition Official Trailer

Today Bioware revealed official footage of the upcoming Mass Effect: Legendary Edition which comes with all three games in the original trilogy as well as all of the DLC and a new canon extended ending.

Project director, Mac Walters, said, “For the people who had an extended cut, that became the experience for them, and so that will be the experience for everyone who is playing the Legendary Edition as well… And ultimately…you finish a game and there are things you wish you had been able to do or things you want to add on, and to me that Extended Cut was that opportunity to add a little bit more love and a little bit more context around the ending. So to me that is part of the canon.”

Walters also added that not only will the all of DLC be added to this game but also small tweaks to gameplay including certain boss fights. For example, Walters talked about the fight against Asari Matriarch Benezia in Mass Effect 1.

“A lot of people were very frustrated due to a number of things: there’s the lack of cover in that fight so you’re constantly getting flanked; her ability to almost immobilize you almost right off the bat… So tuning some of those. Not so much that the fight isn’t still a hard fight — it should be a hard fight — but just so that you couldn’t be knocked completely on your back right away.

“And also, just on the frustration side of it, adding in discrete autosaves at certain points as well. I believe in that one specifically you had to backtrack quite a ways if you lost that fight, and now if you lose it first time, you just start over with the fight; you don’t have to go through all the scenes. So things like that. And then it would vary depending on the boss fight what we would try to do, a lot of times it’s around just making sure the player has enough cover and then tuning things accordingly.”

Finally, BioWare also announced that this collection will be available on May 14th, 2021 for PS4, Xbox One, and PC. There are currently no plans for a dedicated next-gen release or optimization patch. This game will have a better framerate and 4K Ultra HD optimization. It’s available for pre-order right now and check out the trailer below!

Kevin Hart Cast As Roland In Upcoming Borderlands Movie

Today it was officially revealed that Kevin Hart is in fact apart of the upcoming Borderlands movie but not as the previously speculated Claptrap but as the vault hunter & hero of Pandora, Roland. This has came as a surprise to many as most fans are use to Kevin in comedic roles which doesn’t fit the archetype of Roland’s character.

For those that don’t know, Roland is the leader of the Crimson Raiders and a playable vault hunter in the first Borderlands game. Roland often serves as the voice of reason and as the “straight man” in most comedic situations in the Borderlands games. He appears as one of the few characters that hasn’t lost their sanity. Borderlands, while violent, is a game series that doesn’t hold back with the humor. There’s always a joke being thrown at the player, character dynamics often display humorous conversations and many situations will make the player chuckle.

So it’ll be interesting to see Kevin Hart play a character that is typically the “serious one” despite being in a film about a game that often utilizes humor. I’m excited to see Kevin Hart dive into a different role and here’s to hoping we see a different side of his acting ability. In the recent years, Kevin has been training vigorously and has teased the idea of him being in a action movie. What are your thoughts? Are excited? Let us know!

“I’m thrilled to be working with Kevin [Hart]. Borderlands is a different kind of role for him, and we are excited to thrill audiences with a side of Kevin they’ve never seen before. He’s going to be an amazing Roland.”

– Eli Roth

Resident Evil 8 “MAIDEN” Demo / Resident Evil 7 Classic “Fixed” Camera

Resident Evil 8: Village has received its first demo titled, “Maiden”. This is currently on Playstation 5 with another updated demo coming to all platforms sometime in the spring. This demo is similar to the demo that was released for Resident Evil 7 where little is shown but a lot is teased. As of now we know there are at least 4 different “houses” that are occupying this village in the mountains. We learn that the women who many are speculating as “vampires” have a wine distillery in their castle and have been using human blood to create their unique flavor.

Resident Evil has generally dealt with zombies and viruses. This game looks to be taking a gothic spin on this iconic franchise. However, it’s still not confirmed that “werewolves” and “vampires” will be making their appearance in this game. In the event that we fight enemies who howl in the night or have sharp blood tooth fangs, except that to be some sort of infection or virus rather than a genuine supernatural monster. Resident Evil doesn’t typically go to the supernatural. Nevertheless, their take on the gothic style looks very interesting and many can see the similarities between the classic Resident Evil 4 in terms of a gothic castle overlooking a rural village.

Check out the demo here:

In other Resident Evil news, a fan has made a concept that implements the classic “fixed” camera style of the original games into the recent Resident Evil 7. In this demo, we can actually see the protagonist, Ethan’s, face. It’s worth noting that this game isn’t fully playable and is for viewing purposes only. There’s no combat and it’s only playable for a few sections although there’s a possibility that a fan will complete a fully playable version.
