John Wick Hex Trailer | GAMERS GREED - YouTube
In a recent press release, the game publisher describes John Wick Hex as a “fast-paced, action-oriented strategy game”. The aim is to make you think and strike like John Wick.
Created in close cooperation with the creative and stunt teams behind the films, John Wick Hex is fight-choreographed chess brought to life as a video game, capturing the series’ signature gun fu style while expanding its story universe.
Players must choose every action and attack they make, while considering their immediate cost and consequences. Every move in John Wick Hex feels like a scene from the movies, and every fight contributes to your progress on the job and requires precise strategic thinking.
Good Shepherd Entertainment.
The game features a storyline inspired by the John Wick movies. With mission progression that unlocks new weapons, locations and of course, suit options.
The developer wishes to create the game in a finite ammo world. So that players must bear this in mind while playing through the story. Rather than always rushing through guns blazing.
While John Wick Hex has been officially confirmed. An release date is yet to be announced. Fortunately, the third installment of the film franchise, John Wick Chapter 3 Parabellum, is soon upon us.

There has been a lot of controversies recently about Google releasing their own console platform. Today, Google unveiled that the rumors were true. Revealing the highly-anticipated gaming console, Stadia.
The catch, however, is its not a console at all. But an all-new digital system that you can access from a lot of the devices you already own. Play on your Google Pixel, Tablet, and your PC.
While you can buy hardware for Stadia, this is completely optional. The Stadia system is completely online via streaming.
Stadia GDC 2019 Gaming Announcement - YouTube
The announced controller looks great. With a sleek design, much like the PlayStation 4 controller. The Stadia controller features a share button built into the controller. That you can use while gaming to stream straight to any streaming platform. It also has a built-in mic you can use for certain commands. Both on the streaming platform and also in certain games
Google Stadia Controller
Googles Stadia platform will release with Doom Eternal. The next installment for the popular Doom series. Which will surely stress test Stadia’s streaming performance. But if anyone can successfully pull off a AAA game launch, it’s Google. Stadia is expected to release in 2019.
The pass can be purchased at any time during the first season, and rewards will automatically unlock up to your current seasonal level, so you won’t miss out on anything if you’re late to the party. The Battle Pass Bundle will unlock the rewards for 25 levels beyond your current level, so if you’re on level 20 when you purchase it, for instance, you’ll be given all the rewards up to level 45.
The Battle Pass will go for
950 Apex coins on its own—about $10—
or in a Battle Pass Bundle for 2800 Apex coins that catapults you to level 25 from the start.
Purchasing the pass will immediately unlock the Lifelife Revolutionary, Wraith Survivor, and Mirage Outlaw skins, and as pass owners advance in levels through the season they’ll earn rewards including player and weapon skins, trackers, and badges. It doesn’t appear that weekly challenges are a part of the deal. More than 100 items are up for grabs, and everything earned during the first season is yours to keep.
All players, with or without the Battle Pass, can earn a Wild Frontier character skin, five Apex Packs, and 18 Wild Frontier stat tracks simply by playing during season 1, and the Battle Pass reward items can also be earned by players who don’t have the pass, just at a far slower pace. (Remember, Apex Packs stop dropping at every level once you hit level 20, so you’re probably not going to grind all of this stuff out without help.)
EA confirmed in a more in-depth blog post that season 1 loot will not be tied to in-game challenges like, say, doing “a 720 backflip off of Watchtower Artemis and get two Wingman headshots before hitting the ground.” That sort of thing may be incorporated into future Battle Passes, but for season 1 it wants to keep the focus on playing and learning the game.
Players can earn a Battle Pass progression bonus, however, by playing a variety of different characters, rather than focusing on one or two, “because we believe true mastery in Apex Legends means being a badass with anyone in any situation at any time,” lead product manager Lee Horn wrote.
“We’ve tried to create a Battle Pass where first-time spenders can get a strong base of weapon and character cosmetics to fill out their initial collection at a deep discount. In addition, we’ve included our first ever three-stage evolving Legendary Havoc weapon skin (for veterans who are looking for the new hotness), as well as Epic and Legendary Apex Packs.”
Horn ran down the full list of rewards available in the Battle Pass in a post on Reddit:
1000 Apex Coins (these can be put toward the next Battle Pass if you like)
Apex’s first ever 3-stage Evolving Legendary Weapon Skin (Havoc)
Exclusive Epic PDW weapon skin
Legendary Apex Pack with Guaranteed 1+ Legendary
Epic Apex Pack with Guaranteed 1+ Epic
5 standard Apex Packs
3 Legend skins
20 exclusive rare weapon skins
9 exclusive banner frames
9 exclusive intro quips
9 exclusive seasonal stat trackers
Exclusive badges, Battle Pass boosts and more!
He also clarified in a separate post that player and Battle Pass levels “are completely independent and don’t impact each other.” Battle Pass level will reset at the end of each season, but the player level will not.

Simpsons Producers confirmed that the Episode Stark Raving Dad. Will be removed from all future boxsets and re-runs aired on TV.

However, in the wake of the troubling documentary Leaving Neverland – that was recently released. Creator Matt Groening and Executive Producer Jamers L Brooks. Have decided that its best to pull the episode for the forseeable future.

Famous YouTuber PewDiePie had shockingly been mentioned by one of the Gunman at the Mass Shooting in Christchurch, New Zealand.
The horrific attack on two mosques only just took place yesterday. Which has left at least 50 people dead and more being confirmed as reports roll in.
PewDiePie has been in a long YouTube battle with another YouTuber named T-Series. In which the target is to spread the word to “Subscribe to PewDiePie”. Which had unwillingly embroiled in the attack in Christchurch.
The event was live-streamed by one of the gunman as the horrific scenes took place. One of the shooters had uttered the words to Subscribe to PewDiePie before the shooting unfolded in the first mosque.
YouTube star PewDiePie issued a statement over Twitter denouncing the attack.
Just heard news of the devastating reports from New Zealand Christchurch. I feel absolutely sickened having my name uttered by this person. My heart and thoughts go out to the victims, families and everyone affected by this tragedy.
Prime Minister of New Zealand, Jacinda Ardern, issued a statement on the horrific event.
New Zealand Prime Minister – 1 News
We have undoubtedly experienced an attack today that is unprecedented, unlike anything that we have experienced before. But, as I say, New Zealand has been chosen because we are not a place where violent extremism exists. We reject those notions and we must continue to reject them. This is not an enclave for that kind of behavior, for that kind of ideology. We will and must reject it. This is a place where people should feel secure and will feel secure. I am not going to let this change New Zealand’s profile, none of us should.
Unless you’ve been living under a rock these past few months. You’d have come across the hilarious ongoing battle between PewDiePie and T-Series.
What started out as a joke has become a massive iconic saying. Just surfing the web you’re bound to come across people in the comments section telling people to “Subscribe to PewDiePie”.
It has reportedly been seen on numerous media outlets, tweets from Celebrities, and even in Times Square.
Subscribe To PewDiePie
As a joke, people started to post videos on Pornhub of PewDiePie with titles suggesting to Subscribe. But has now caught on by numerous Pornstars such as Melina Mason and Miha Nika. Who, have been mentioning his name during their videos and telling their audience to Subscribe to PewDiePie.
When will this battle between PewDiePie and T-Series end? Who knows. But why would we ever want it too? Subscribe to PewDiePie!

We already know 2K is developing a new game for one of its biggest franchises. Which would be either Battleborn, or the Borderlands series. But let’s be honest, Battleborn is not a major franchise compared to Borderlands.
With the direction, developers are now going. With numerous Battle Royale games releasing to cash in on the current popularity. A Battleborn Royale wouldn’t be that surprising. The characters are interesting and the lore behind it could make for a successful game. But do we really need another Battle Royale? Probably not.
