Apex Legends’ Highest Win Rate Characters Have Been Revealed

In the sphere of competitive gaming, nothing is set in stone for long. Balance adjustments, buffs and nerfs all contribute to an ever-changing shift in what’s considered the best, and Apex Legends is no different in that regard. Instead of following in Epic Games’ footsteps with Fortnite‘s player avatars, Respawn opted to take a leaf out of Overwatch‘s book by creating a diverse cast of characters, each with their own established story and abilities.

The system, along with an eclectic choice of weapons and gadgets, helps to keep the experience of sky-diving into Kings Canyon feeling fresher for longer, though the feature certainly isn’t without its pitfalls. As Blizzard has struggled to do since the release of its team-based shooter, Respawn has found itself constantly having to make tweaks to Apex Legends‘ existing cast in order to keep each on a relative playing field to the other.

Online Searches For Apex Legends Porn Top Two Million

With seven billion people crammed onto the tiny – relatively speaking – planet we call Earth, it goes without saying that a certain portion of the population has some niche tastes when it comes to self-pleasure.

For some, the internet is as synonymous with porn as social media, and just like the latter, there’s no shortage of choice. As it turns out, video games have become big bucks for the adult industry over the last few years, too, with games like Overwatch gaining notoriety in the past for porn spoofs. Blizzard’s shooter, however, has fallen out of favor with audiences in recent times with another rising to take its place.

Apex Legends hasn’t only been satiating the lust for a brand new battle royale since launch back in February. As per Kotaku’s request, Pornhub has crunched the numbers on which video game fetishes are currently topping the charts,

‘The Wandering Earth’ Is Leading the Sci-Fi Charge at China’s Box Office

‘The Wandering Earth’ Is Leading the Sci-Fi Charge at China’s Box Office
China’s first mainstream science-fiction film, “The Wandering Earth,” has surpassed “Operation Red Sea” to become the country’s second-highest-grossing movie of all time, with $679 million at the local box office and counting. “Crazy Alien,” another title released during last month’s competitive Chinese New Year period, has raked in $327 million domestically. Two more sci-fi movies are in the pipeline for release later this year.

Together, the films are charting a course for a previously nonexistent genre in the Middle Kingdom and are inspiring immense pride in rapt Chinese viewers. Although the country is home to a world-renowned sci-fi writer (Hugo Award winner Liu Cixin) and a burgeoning fan base, such domestically made sci-fi movies have exploded onto the scene only now that local production budgets and technical know-how can realize them.

Whether these blockbusters can blast off beyond China remains in doubt, however. Insiders say their popularity is more

20 Dungeons and Dragons Memes That Show The Game Makes No Sense

In a world where mad wizards have taken owls and bears and united them into one hilariously deadly beast, which adventurer expects the world to follow any rules? <em><strong>Dungeons & Dragons</strong></em> has had many decades, many editions, and many spin-offs like Pathfinder to accrue all manner of loveable quirks. Loveable, exploitable quirks.

Players and DMs everywhere have added to this mix with homebrewed content often as unstable as an alchemist's workshop. And as explosively entertaining.

The point of a dice-based system like <em>D&D</em> is that it abstracts the world to make the job of the players and the Dm more manageable. Sometimes, though, that results in a trade off between narratively interesting or fun and logically coherent. Fireball certainly roasts the enemy pirates, but it all depends on the style of your group whether that means the ship goes up in smoke too.

Waterworld: what it was like before it was a $175m epic

Ryan Lambie Jul 24, 2017

It was a legendarily expensive action vehicle for Kevin Costner in 1995, but Waterworld originally began life as a subtly different story...

Tales of Waterworld's making have long since passed into legend. You've probably read about the long and difficult shoot on the open seas around Hawaii, about the soaring costs, the sinking sets and the increasingly fractious relationship between the two Kevins - director Kevin Reynolds and star Kevin Costner. You've probably heard about a pre-Buffy Joss Whedon being flown in to revise the script, and how, getting wind of all this, the Hollywood press started calling Waterworld names like "Fishtar and "Kevin's Gate".

What's less commonly discussed is just where Waterworld came from. It's often reported that the screenplay was written by Peter Rader and later reworked by David Twohy; what's less widely known is that Waterworld could

Joel Kinnaman Set to Star in Netflix Sci-Fi Series Altered Carbon

A few months ago Netflix revealed that they were developing a new original cyberpunk sci-fi series called Altered Carbon, and Variety is reporting that Joel Kinnaman (The Killing, RoboCop, Suicide Squad) has been cast in the lead role. The series is based on the book of the same name by Richard K. Morgan, and it sounds like it could make for a solid show.

The futuristic series is set in the 25th century when the human mind has been digitized and the soul is transferable from one body to the next. Kinnaman will play Takeshi Kovacs, a former elite interstellar warrior known as an Envoy who has been imprisoned for 500 years and is downloaded into a future he had tried to stop. If he can solve a single murder in a world where technology has made death nearly obsolete, he’ll get a chance at a new life on Earth.

25 great action films that are 90 minutes or under

facebook

twitter

google+

Want a quality action film, but you only have an hour and a half? Step this way...

Looking back over the genre, action films definitely haven’t suffered from the trend to make everything longer. They’ve always been pretty long, regularly clocking in at over two hours. Perhaps because of all the slo-mo? But while the sweet spot for action classics seems to be the 100-110 minute mark, there are those that have cut the genre right down to basics, and succeeded all the more for it.

Below is my pick of 25 great action films 90 minutes or under. Even more so than other genres, action crosses many other films - picking a pure ‘action’ flick is all but impossible. So below I’ve chosen films that retain action sequences as their main narrative device, and keep the action at the heart of the movie, rather than as a extra.

They’re making a Pez movie, based on the sweets. Yes, really.

After the news that a film based on those Emoji ‘things’ was in the works from the guys over at Sony, it has now been revealed that Envision Media Arts are planning a Pez movie. Remember Pez, the sweeties with the flippy top with a different character on the end that dispensed said oblong-shaped candy through its mouth? Yep.

Cameron Fay (Brother In Laws) has been hired for the unenviable task of crafting a screenplay around the property.

There’s no understanding if the film will be live-action or animated, but we’re guessing the latter.

Here’s what Envision Media Arts co-founder Lee Nelson had to say:

Pez candy is beloved by children and adults alike. With Cameron Fay we’ve created a world unique to Pez and a story that will touch the hearts of many.
