J.K. Simmons Discusses the Future of J. Jonah Jameson in the MCU

By tracy
One of the great surprises in Spider-Man: Far From Home came right at the end, mid-credits, when actor J.K. Simmons — who played J. Jonah Jameson in Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man trilogy, along with voicing the character in various Marvel animated series and Sony’s Spider-Man video game — portrayed ol’ flat-top once more as an official part of the MCU.In Far From Home, Jameson was the host of an online crackpot conspiracy show called The Daily Bugle, who believed Quentin Beck’s lies hook, line, and sinker – claiming that Mysterio was the greatest superhero of all time.

In a recent edition of PeopleTV’s Couch Surfing, Simmons was asked if fans should expect to see Jameson again in the next Spider-Man film. Simmons made it clear that while he’d signed on for sequels, it was up for the studio to decide if the character was returning or not. “I don’t know if I would use the word expect,” he said, as a way of tempering the anticipation.

“It’s great to have the opportunity, as these things evolve,” he added, “to be one of the holdovers from the previous version.”

Fury Unleashed Review – Old-School Shooting With A Roguelike Bite

By tracy

A run in Fury Unleashed often concludes with either you or a boss falling. This epic fight often comes down to both sides just having a sliver of health left. The spoils of victory are obviously greater than defeat, but even death can be rewarding, as every run potentially unlocks a new weapon, and perhaps enough experience points to level up and upgrade abilities. Developer Awesome Games Studio has created a balanced roguelike that delivers fun run-and-gun action and challenging battles that get a little less painful each time you attempt them.

Holding true to the Contra and Metal Slug games that Fury Unleashed draws inspiration from, you zip around stages filled with enemies, rotating the analog stick every which way to open fire. The controls are responsive and fluid, allowing you to quickly dash to new positions, and alternate between firearms and melee should enemies get too close. You can even bounce on enemy heads to make them explode, bank grenades off of walls, and use special attacks to freeze foes in place. All of this nicely made action is even better when you are playing with a friend, which is sadly only offered as couch co-op. If the

ExpressVPN Review – IGN

By tracy
A mainstay in the virtual private network space since its launch in 2009, ExpressVPN is a popular choice with solutions that cover desktop computers, mobile devices, and even routers. Featuring a MediaStreamer service that can run on tv streaming boxes and video game consoles, ExpressVPN makes a strong argument for being the best VPN for gaming or best VPN for Netflix. But ultimately it all comes down to pricing and performance. Read on to determine if ExpressVPN is the best VPN for your bucks?

ExpressVPN – Design and Features

An extremely simple design, ExpressVPN’s desktop client is essentially a big on/off button with a drop-down menu to choose a server location. But if you look closer, you’ll find a hamburger menu on the top left which leads to windows that display server locations, a speed test, and the app’s preferences, which are surprisingly deep for a small, one-window program. ExpressVPN can also run in the taskbar, giving it an even smaller desktop footprint.

As for features, ExpressVPN primarily promotes hiding users’ IP addresses and encrypting their network data so no one can see what they’re doing online. ”One click, and you’re protected,” the company says – and a gruesome

Crapshoot: The Deus Ex mod set in a fan forum

By tracy

From 2010 to 2014 Richard Cobbett wrote Crapshoot, a column about bringing random obscure games back into the light. Shortly before the release of Deus Ex: Human Revolution, he checked out the original Deus Ex’s Nameless Mod, where everyone gets to rock cool trenchcoats.

With the exception of Invisible War, the great shame of Deus Ex’s legacy is that almost nobody’s ever really tried to beat it. Vampire: Bloodlines got the closest, E.Y.E: Divine Cybermancy, uh, exists. A few others have taken on board individual ideas, like offering stealthy options, or giving you a sack of gadgets. Nothing however has that same hook of being dropped into a world with a bag of tricks, and invited to make your own way through it. Will Human Revolution finally be the successor we’re all longing for? “Hopefully!” I say, in the shifty tone of one who finished it about two weeks ago , but isn’t all owed to give away any actual details for another week or so. Still , I remember it like it was yesterday.

Unless you follow the mod scene though, it’s likely that you’ve not played one of the best things

Crucible Review – A Slow Struggle

By tracy

Hero shooters are all the rage these days, so games in the middle or bottom of the field struggle to compete against the lead dogs. Crucible is one of those games, where its mediocrity only earns dismissal. Crucible is like a bland and forgettable meal – inoffensive going down, but quickly passed over for something with a little more flavor and spice.

Crucible’s heroes fail to entertain on the personality and character level, but they often have memorable and interesting moves that cater to perfection and learning. With the exception of the adorable robot Bugg, most of the cast lacks appeal. With color-by-the-numbers characters like Military Man, Berserker Lizard, and Fish Sniper, the heroes feel like they were ripped from the pages of a rejected comic book.

On the loadout side, learning a character’s nuances is highly entertaining. For example, the militant Sazan has a set of skills that’s easy to understand on the surface, but has lots of room for growth and skill. Discovering how to distance myself to juggle my assault rifle, shotgun, and throwing knife cooldowns was a fun exercise. Mastering a moveset, both partial and perfectly, is satisfying and applicable to many of the heroes.

The
