Resident Evil 3 Remake’s Nemesis Uses An Improved Version Of Mr. X’s AI

If being hounded by Mr. X was enough to make you lose bowel control, you might want to think twice about picking up Resident Evil 3.

A remake of another beloved classic, the series’ third entry sees players take control of former S.T.A.R.S. member Jill Valentine as she attempts to escape Raccoon City. As Leon and Claire were forced to face Umbrella’s impervious Tyrants in Resident Evil 2‘s own reimagining, so too, is Jill, though her adversary is infinitely more dangerous than the fedora-wearing type. Like his brethren, Nemesis boasts an intimidating size and incredible strength but possesses superior intellect due to its body hosting a special parasite.

That being the case, Nemesis is not only capable of strategic thinking, but using tools, wielding weapons and, most worrisome of all, running. As suspected, Capcom is utilizing the same AI technology it used for Mr X in order to give Nemesis life,

Patrick Stewart on How ‘Logan’ Influenced ‘Star Trek: Picard’

Later this month, Patrick Stewart will return to the role that made him a household name. Star Trek: Picard will launch on CBS All Access and see Jean-Luc Picard on a new adventure, but in a new interview with Variety, Stewart notes that the show will be far cry from Star Trek: The Next Generation. He tells Variety that one of the pleasures of doing Logan was returning to a character that was so different from where they started: “Hugh and I were so thrilled when the last thing we did for ‘X-Men’ was ‘Logan,’” he says. “It …

X-Men: Who are the Children of the Vault?

Jim Dandy Jan 8, 2020

There are big surprises coming to Marvel's X-Men!

Jonathan Hickman and the rest of the Dawn of X crew have done great work with villains since the post-House of X/Powers of X status quo emerged. Orchis somehow got better in X-Men than they were in House of X/Powers of X, while Morgan Le Fay and the Marauders in Excalibur and X-Force are great tone-setter baddies for first stories. And perhaps the neatest trick Hickman’s pulled so far is turning late stage capitalism into an antihero in X-Men #4. But a promo and the story title for the next issue are combining to make a quick, throwaway moment from the first issue be the most exciting thing to happen to the X-Men since Wolverine gutted Moira MacTaggart an entire lifetime ago: the Children of the Vault are back!

‘Marvel 2099: Alpha #1′ Review

  • Nerdly
Written by Nick Spencer | Art by Viktor Bogdanovic | Published by Marvel Comics

I’ve written elsewhere that I had become in more recent years quite jaded by the big crossover event, or the ‘buy 36 books to get the whole picture’ event. Good storytelling was being jettisoned in favour of editorial control, and the industry as a whole was suffering. Then DC started doing these type of comics, well, better. I have been really enjoying Year of the Villain, Tales from the Dark Multiverse, Event Leviathan and DCeased. Not perfect, but solid entertainment. So, what can Marvel do? Can they raise their game? Seemed like this relaunch of the 2099 universe, with specials and mini-series galore, was a good place to start. And what better place to start than this Alpha issue, where it all kicks off. Let’s take a look.

Doctor Doom Rumored To Be One Of Black Panther 2’s Villains

Now that Marvel Studios has the rights to the X-Men and Fantastic Four mythologies back from Fox, it’s assumed it’ll be a priority for them to get Doctor Doom into the McU Asap. As one of the biggest supervillains in the Marvel universe, he could make a lot of noise in the franchise. But for the same reason, he could also make his first appearance in many different ways and a new rumor points to him featuring in a movie we hadn’t thought of before: Black Panther 2.

Charles Murphy has reported that it’s possible Victor Von Doom could serve as the antagonist of the upcoming sequel for Chadwick Boseman’s King T’Challa. His info points to Doom looking to expand his empire by invading parts of Africa, which will ultimately put him at odds with Black Panther when he attempts to conquer Wakanda. Murphy stresses,

Marvel: Hogwarts Houses Of Deadpool Characters

Deadpool and Deadpool 2 were smash hits in the box office and allowed for Marvel to break boundaries with what could be done with superhero flicks at the time, including allowing for R-rated films. Both movies have memorable characters that had enough screen time to build upon.

Each character fits nicely into a specific role, both in the movies and as character concepts. Since they fit well, we can look at what house they’d be sorted into if they attended Hogwarts from the Harry Potter series. Each sorting will be explained based on several factors, though it will mainly be focused on actions in the movies.

Rob Leane Nov 27, 2019

What does the future of the Pokémon franchise hold now that Sword and Shield are out?

Pokémon Sword and Shield are out in the wild now, and despite garnering negative reactions from some fans because of a limited Pokédex, the games have earned a lot of positive reviews and also become the fastest-selling Nintendo Switch titles to date. So what's next for the franchise?

With the Pokémon franchise having been around for decades, there is plenty of past form for us to consider here.

Bts Are Shut Out of 2020 Grammy Nominations

In April, Bts released Map of the Soul: Persona, an instant commercial smash. The seven-piece K-Pop ensemble outsold Beyoncé’s surprise live album, Homecoming, by an enviable margin, and earned their third chart-topping album in less than 11 months. The last group to earn that many number ones as quickly was the Beatles.

But on Wednesday, when the Recording Academy announced the nominations for the 2020 Grammys, Bts were nowhere to be found.

This demonstrates the ongoing challenge for K-pop acts: They consistently outsell — not to mention out dance — their American counterparts,

New The Rise of Skywalker Footage Has Rey Confronting Darth Vader's Helmet

  • MovieWeb
Disney and Lucasfilm have revealed some more goods for Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker a month out from the movie's official release. Not only did they reveal a brand new poster, which showcases the overwhelming odds the Resistance is coming up against in their fight against the First Order, but we also have a new TV spot, which is jam-packed with new footage. It's still difficult to know what all of it means without any real context, but it's an awful lot to process.

The spot opens with C-3Po's heartbreaking speech from the Star Wars 9 final trailer. We then see Rey getting a look at Darth Vader's helmet, which raises some interesting questions. We also get a look at one of the new First Order land speeders, and another new shot of Kylo Ren in his patched-up mask. We then move onto a big action sequence that sees

Infinite Earths and Other Worlds: The Best and Worst Alternate Realities

Fans of the Arrowverse were first introduced to the multiverse, the idea of parallel worlds with parallel versions of our beloved characters on, The Flash Season 2 Episode 2.

Since then, our heroes have encountered multiple earths, including but not limited to:

Earth II, where Black Siren, Zoom, Harry Wells, and Jesse Quick came from

Earth III, where Jay Garrick came from

Earth 38 where Supergirl takes place Earth X, where nazis reigned supreme and Kara was involved with Oliver. 

The theory of a multiverse is fascinating, but the Arrowverse is not the first show to go there. Oh, we can give credit to the comics circa 1961 and debate whether Marvel or DC did it first, but we're talking TV here.

And for TV, there is also a long history of parallel worlds.

In some cases, these worlds are fantasies, in others, a true parallel reality. However they came about, these shows gave

Avengers: Endgame Concept Art Shows Thanos Destroying Cap’s Shield With His Hands

There are so many shocking moments squeezed into the final battle of Avengers: Endgame. One of them comes though when Thanos uses his blade to destroy Captain America’s shield. Not only is it a weapon with much history in the McU, but it’s also made of the most powerful metal on Earth, vibranium. In the movie, the Mad Titan bests the shield with his double-sided blade. But in some newly unveiled concept art, the villain breaks it with his bare hands.

Marvel’s Avengers: Endgame: The Art of the Movie reveals a lot of fascinating, incredible artwork from the Marvel movie event of the year.

I’m With the Band: Nasty Cherry review – move over Simon Cowell, here's Charli Xcx!

Netflix’s new reality show follows a girl group primed for stardom by the pop rebel – and you will be hopelessly sucked in by their spectacular tiffs

Historically, girl bands have been put together and managed by middle-aged men, often resulting in the gruesome situation of young women being told what to do, say and wear by those men in order to make the men as much money as possible. As much as I’m With the Band: Nasty Cherry (Netflix) is a fairly standard X Factor setup – a mentor develops a fledgling act, drawing on their own industry experience – it does, at least, offer a glimmer of a fresh take. The six-part show follows the progress of “alt-pop” group Nasty Cherry, who have been flung together by Charli Xcx and her best friend and the band’s manager, Emmie Lichtenberg, from when they move into a house together to

Watch Cardi B, Lizzo, Billie Eilish Read Mean Tweets on ‘Kimmel’
Jimmy Kimmel has a brand-new edition of his “Mean Tweets” segment, this time featuring all musicians. The late night host tapped everyone from Billie Eilish to Chance the Rapper to Luke Bryan to Lizzo for the clip, which is hilarious.

Eilish goes first, reading a tweet that says “Billie Eilish dresses like she got her clothes stolen at the gym so they gave her what they had in the lost and found bin.” It gets worse for Chance the Rapper, who reads, “Chance the Rapper? More like Chance the worthless

The ‘Steele Dossier’ and the Wmd Story Came Out the Same Way

This morning, I wrote in Rolling Stone, “Why is Christopher Steele still a thing?” The British ex-spy reappeared as a contributor to a British intelligence report, and I argued his “dossier” tale was a press fiasco similar to the Weapons of Mass Destruction affair.

“The Wmd affair showed what happens when we don’t require sources to show us evidence, when we let political actors use the press to “confirm” their own assertions, when we report on the journey of rumors instead of the rumors themselves…”

Some on social media disputed the characterization.

Inxs Guitarist Tim Farriss Reflects on the Band's Biggest Moment

Tony Sokol Nov 5, 2019

Inxs guitarist riffs on producers, songwriting, a legendary concert at Wembley Stadium.

Inxs started out as a cover band playing clubs and went on to write international hits "as sexy and funky as any white rock group," according to 1001 Songs: The Great Songs of All Time and the Artists, Stories and Secrets Behind Them.

Mates since childhood, Inxs is second only to AC/DC in selling the most Australian music to the U.S. But it is their July 13, 1991, show at England's Wembley Stadium which made them legends. Inxs's debut headlining show came six years to the day after Live Aid and five years and a day since the band supported Queen at Wembley Stadium. The performance, called "Summer Xs," was recorded for a live album and filmed and released as Live Baby Live, directed by David Mallet. Later this year, Fathom Events will bring indoors what
