As you can see, a trailer featuring the two upcoming DLC episodes for Capcom’s video game Resident Evil 7 has been released. One episode, called Not a Hero, will be free to all those who own the game. The other episode, called End of Zoe, will only be available to those who have also purchased the season pass (which contains additional content), although it’s likely that it will also be available as an individual DLC episode.
I’ve been a huge Star Wars fan for almost my entire life, but I have to say that at the moment, my love for the franchise is at an all time low. Things seem to be going from bad to worse, in that galaxy far, far away. So to be honest I wasn’t exactly dying to see the full trailer for The Last Jedi, which was released today. What do I think about it, now that I’ve seen it? Not much, actually. I didn’t find it particularly interesting or exciting. The film does seem to have a very dark mood about it, which I think John Boyega (AKA Finn) remarked on not so long ago, but that may simply be due to the fact a lot of the shots in the trailer are in dark places. In any case, it may possibly end up being the darkest Star Wars film to date. We’ll just have to wait and see.
For those who do not know, Miraculous: Tales of Ladybug & Cat Noir is a French 3D cartoon that is a clever hybrid of Japanese magical girls and American superheros. Despite being aimed at young girls, it seems to have a very broad international fan base. I rather like it myself: the heroine Marinette (AKA Ladybug) is very endearing, her interactions with Adrien (AKA Cat Noir) are amusing and their adventures are simple but fun.
The trailer for the second season is quite long and shows a number of little snippets, although these have probably been edited from a handful of the first few episodes. The battle between Ladybug and Cat Noir caught my eye: they have fought before, but only when Cat Noir was being controlled by someone else. This battle seems to be a serious one, but it is a kid’s show, so maybe I’m overthinking things.😅
The first season of Miraculous: Tales of Ladybug & Cat Noir aired in 2015. The trailer for the second season has no information about when (or where) it will start airing, but my guess is early 2018. Till next time, au revoir, arrivederci and may the force be with you!😊
A trailer has just been released for the new Tomb Raider film, starring Alicia Vikander, which is coming out in early 2018. First and foremost, I have to admit I’m not really a Tomb Raider fan. I’ve never played any of the original games and I’ve only ever seen snippets of the Angelina Jolie movies. However, I have played the 2013 reboot game (titled simply Tomb Raider) and I found it thoroughly enjoyable. Now, it’s pretty obvious that the plot of the new movie is based on this particular game (albeit with a different set of supporting characters), so it could be a lot of fun.
The only thing that slightly bothers me is the choice of Ms Vikander as Lara Croft. Sure she’s incredibly beautiful and all that, but (to me at least) she doesn’t quite seem to have the right physique for a world-traversing adventurer. On the other hand, maybe I’m just being biased because I’m so used to how Lara Croft looked in the game. It’s entirely possible that Ms Vikander may be as good a Lara Croft as Daniel Craig is a James Bond, but I guess we’ll have to wait till next year to find out.
That’s all for the time being. Till next time, au revoir, arrivederci and may the force be with you!😊
I didn’t know about this until I signed into Steam a few moments ago. Apparently the 2015 adventure game Life is Strange, which was created by French studio Dontnod, is getting a prequel called, rather appropriately, Before the Storm. It was announced at E3, just a couple of days ago.
I thought the original Life Is Strange was a great game. It was beautiful to look at and the story was quite interesting. However, it had its flaws. Apart from the fact that, contrary to the marketing spiel, your choices don’t really affect the game that much, there was also the issue of the whole payoff. It depended entirely on you caring about someone that, in my opinion, wasn’t really worth caring about: the protagonist’s “BFF” Chloe Price. And now Chloe is the protagonist this time round.So I can’t really say I’m terribly excited by this announcement. It may be that this prequel makes Chloe a more sympathetic character, but it’s not going to be easy to make me change my view of her as an angry, self-centred and extremely manipulative individual. I’m actually more interested in the Life Is Strange sequel, which is also in the works. But I’ll keep an eye out for news about Before the Storm too, just to see if my expectations for it change.
Till next time, au revoir, arrivederci and may the force be with you!
The 3d-animated film Biohazard: Vendetta (aka Resident Evil: Vendetta), was released last Saturday in Japan. I have absolutely no idea how it is faring at the box office, but I came across four new short promo clips for it on YouTube today. Apparently, they were used to promote the film on Twitter (or “Twetter”, as it says in the YouTube description for each clip).😋 Anyway, each one features a different character.
A new trailer for the upcoming Biohazard: Vendetta (aka Resident Evil: Vendetta) 3d-animated film has just come out. This film centres on the heroic trio of Chris Redfield, Leon Kennedy and Rebecca Chambers, who must face off against yet another bloodthirsty horde of mutants unleashed by the new owner of not one, but two incredibly evil and powerful corporations. Yes, in the end it’s basically the same old Resident Evil plot, but this film does look like it’s going to be fun.
