(Video) Marvel Has Quietly Given A ‘Hint’ Of The Existence Of X-Men Characters Since 2013

Published

on

The previous Thor film was once criticized for featuring the worst phase of the storyline in the history of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). The chronology featured in the film is also not in line with the comic storyline.

Despite being criticized, one of its sequel films, Thor: The Dark World, is still considered important in developing the next phase of MCU Avengers.

In order to make up for the ‘mistakes’ of the Thor film at the MCU, there is an introduction of new elements taken through the film Thor: The Dark World in addition to the Infinity Stones to be introduced in the next Avengers movie.

The appearance of mutant X-Men in MCU Avengers

Earlier, in July 2019, Marvel studio director Kevin Feige announced that the mutant X-Men character would be part of the Avengers movie franchise. However, the statement was not explained in detail. Until a report was released by Marvel saying that the involvement of mutant characters would cause chaos in the MCU Avengers.

The next Avengers movie that was supposed to start filming in mid-2020 is unlikely to be released if there is an introduction to the X-Men mutant characters in the fifth and sixth phases of the MCU. But now, according to an Independent report, the Wolverine character in the X-Men is expected to appear in the fifth phase of the MCU.

How can X-Men be involved in MCUs?

Through the Screen Rant report clearly proves that the existence of mutant characters has been discussed through the cameo scene (side) starring Stan Lee as Dr. Erik Selvig, a psychiatrist in the movie Thor: The Dark World.

If examined carefully, the blackboard written by Dr. Erik clearly shows the theoretical discussion of the phenomenon of the Fault, the phenomenon of destruction of the cosmic realm of Cancerverse (civilization of Brood aliens) due to the mutant war of Kree and Shi’ar and then formed a multiverse in the X-Men comics, Jonathan Hickman.

Interestingly, the natural story of the Fault is likely to be told through the sequel film Doctor Strange 2: In The Multiverse of Madness directed by Sam Raimi. To find out how mutants act in the Marvel MCU, you must wait for the release of the next Doctor Strange sequel movie.

Marvel Studios is indirectly very confident that the X-Men will be coming to the MCU; a few years before Disney bought the 21st Century Fox network and restored the X-Men character rights to Marvel Studios.

(Video) ‘Militsioner’, A Delightfully Strange Immersive Simulator Game

Published

on

Have you ever thought of escaping a city? What about trying to escape a city guard by a GIANT policeman? And everyone thinks you’re a criminal. This is the concept of Militsioner, a strange yet delightful immersive simulator from Russian indie developer, TallBoys.

Gameplay

The newly released gameplay trailer demonstrates the game voice mechanics and the world of the game. It is painted with a communist dystopian atmosphere with a pair of giant eyes of the policeman watching you. The voice mechanics enable you to communicate with the giant sentinel and provoke him if you’re ready to face his wrath.

The city seems explorable and you can talk to the NPC with the same voice mechanics and they all seem hostile to your existence. The hostility means leaving the town discreetly would be a challenge since the townsfolk would threaten to call the authorities at the sight of you. The crime that you have been accused of is unknown.

The developers are polishing the voice system to ensure it to be as natural as possible. The Player’s response will affect the environment and the NPC’s reaction.

“In order for the policeman and the environment to understand the player correctly, we are working on a system that will correctly process the player’s responses based on the context,” a developer from TallBoys says. “It is important that it does not make stupid mistakes or create obstacles, as the answers will influence the mood and attitude of the Militsioner towards the player.”

For those who prefer more discreet gameplay, the developers are looking at the alternative text input or even dialog system.

The game is still in development and has yet to determine a release date. However, it has already gained interest due to its intriguing concept and fascinating ideology.

(Video) ‘Deathloop’, A Time Heist Spy Game With James Bond-Style Theme Song

Published

on

The latest release by Sony, Deathloop released a new trailer today. Set on the fictional island of Blackreef, the sequence shows the main character, Colt – an assassin stuck in a time loop where to escape, he must eliminate eight people.

Visuals

This new collaboration by Bethesda Softworks and Arkane Studios thrilled fans. Both companies collaborated in the critically-acclaimed Dishonored series and 2017’s Prey. The in-game art design is reminiscent of that in Dishonored while also displaying some of the fan-favorite mechanics in the game. Prey clearly inspires the sci-fi elements in Deathloop with a retro mix. However, unlike the previous two games from Arkane, Deathloop seems to be more colorful and vibrant in visuals.

The song accompanying the trailer is by artist, FJØRA. Appropriately named ‘Déjà Vu’, the Bond-vibe song matched the editing and gameplay sequence in the trailer perfectly.

Audio Director, Michel Tremouiller is responsible for the ear candy players will experience as they play.

“Along with the different visual influences in each district, we wanted to ensure players would hear different things between the different regions of the island.”-  Audio Director Michel Tremouiller.

Gameplay

Also like the previous games, the gameplay is about finding a different path in the environment. This is the part in both Dishonored and Prey that gives it a high-replay ability value.

The trailer shows Colt with stealth abilities like invisibility, crouching, and knife. The fancy environment design also helps to contribute to stealth gaming. But that doesn’t mean combat isn’t an option. It seems that Colt will be provided with powers and weapons enabling different methods in approaching an objective.

To the newly initiated, it is recommended to play Dishonored and Prey to get some idea of the studio’s style.

Another new concept by the studios is the option for multiplayer. Players could also choose to play as Julianna and look into her perspective in the game.

Whatever it is, fans of the first-person shooters will be excited for this addition alongside Resident Evil: Village and Far Cry 6.

It is now available for pre-order on PS5. The game will officially release on PS5 and PC on May 21, 2021.
