Amazon Says Fallout Season 2 Is Ahead of Schedule

Game News - Fri, 07/19/2024 - 01:18

Following the premiere of Fallout earlier this year, Prime Video didn't waste any time renewing it for a second season. Now, after the show earned 16 Emmy nominations including for Outstanding Drama Series and a Best Actor in a Drama nod for Walton Goggins, the early word on Fallout Season 2 is very encouraging.

"Geneva [Robertson-Dworet] and Graham [Wagner] and Jonah [Nolan] and Kilter [Films] have such a vision for this. They are hard at work, we already have scripts in hand for Season 2," said Amazon MGM Studios television head Vernon Sanders during an interview with The Wrap. "So we're really far ahead because we knew we had something special all along. It's premature for me to give you a release date. But I'll tell you, we are working hard to be back as fast as possible... I think people will be pleased with how quickly we’re able to get the show back. We just want to make sure we deliver everything that is on the page."

Sanders was also asked about a possible Fallout spin-off series. While he didn't commit to any expansion of the franchise, Sanders stressed that Prime Video has long term plans for Fallout.

How To Feed Chickens In Stardew Valley

Game News - Fri, 07/19/2024 - 01:09

An important part of a successful and thriving farm in Stardew Valley are animals, which can produce valuable items on a more regular basis than crops. Chickens are one of the animals you will have access to the earliest, since they are the first coop animals you can get. Chickens will produce eggs every single day, so long as you are taking care of them, which requires you to feed them. Here's how to do it.

How to feed chickensHay can be pulled directly from your silo by interacting with the hopper, the brown container next to the player.

Each chicken requires one piece of hay per day, which can be given to them in two different ways. The most common method is to place the hay in the feeding trough inside the coop, which the chickens will automatically eat on their own. The other method is to create a fenced area around the coop and plant grass in the fenced area. You can open the coop from the outside, and the chickens will go outside to graze, so long as it isn't stormy.

More Stardew Valley guides:

To place hay into the trough, you can either have it in your inventory by purchasing it from Marnie's Farm or you can use the hopper inside the coop. The hopper will pull hay from a silo if you have one--which is necessary for harvesting hay from grass on your farm. Interacting with the hopper will give you the exact amount of hay as you have coop animals, so if you have two chickens, it will pull out two pieces of hay. If you have more trough space than animals, you can fill it preemptively; the hay won't go bad sitting there. If you pull out too much hay, you can put it back in the silo by interacting with it while holding the hay.

The Wonderfully Cheesy Resident Evil Movies Are On Sale In This Post-Prime Day Deal

Game News - Fri, 07/19/2024 - 00:52

Some video game movie adaptations are great, while others are so bad that they're actually brilliant. In this post-Prime Day deal, the gloriously cheesy Resident Evil films are on sale, as you can pick up all six of them for just $56.50. Starring Milla Jovovich, this is a 4K collection of Resident Evil movies that's full of over-the-top action, ridiculous one-liners, and some surprisingly good practical effects.

Resident Evil Six-Movie Collection

The first Resident Evil film came out all the way in 2002 and starred Milla Jovovich as Alice, who evolved from an amnesiac survivor and into a killing machine before the end credits rolled. Each Resident Evil movie loosely incorporated ideas, characters, and plot elements from the video game source material, and the film series eventually ended with 2016's Resident Evil: The Final Chapter.

They wouldn't be the actual final Resident Evil films, however, as the slightly more authentic Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City released in 2021. If you're looking for some comfort junk food revolving around flesh-eating bioweapons and the too-damn-many walking dead, you can't go wrong with the Resident Evil films.

Beetlejuice 2's New Trailer Reveals An Unlikely Partnership

Game News - Fri, 07/19/2024 - 00:18

Typically, sequels arrive shortly after the original movie and not 36 years later. But Beetlejuice 2, officially titled Beetlejuice Beetlejuice, plays by its own rules. Director Tim Burton is reuniting with original Beetlejuice stars Michael Keaton and Winona Ryder, who played the title character and Lydia Deetz, respectively. Now, the new trailer for Beetlejuice Beetlejuice is revealing why Lydia had to summon Beetlejuice herself nearly four decades after she last encountered him.

Wednesday's Jenna Ortega is playing Lydia's teenage daughter, Astrid Deetz, and she doesn't believe in the supernatural or buy that her mom can speak to and hear the dead, which is an ability that Lydia picked up during the first film. However, when Astrid is kidnapped and taken into the afterlife, Beetlejuice is the only one that Lydia can turn to in order to get her daughter back.

Of course, Beetlejuice's favors always come with a price. And it looks like the Ghost with the Most has gotten some bureaucratic power in the afterlife since we last saw him. Beetlejuice tried to marry Lydia in the first movie in order to fully escape from the afterlife. If the trailer's church scene is any indication, that may be Beetlejuice's plan again even though he already has a wife, Delores, as played by Monica Bellucci.

Call Of Duty Fans Believe Bill Skarsgard's The Crow Is Coming To The Game

Game News - Fri, 07/19/2024 - 00:17

Call of Duty is known for its crossover characters, but could The Crow be next? That's what fans are theorizing after Activision published the first details on Season 5. The roadmap image includes a "classified" image of an Operator coming to the game mid-season, and people think it's Bill Skarsgard's new take on the character from the upcoming remake.

Indeed, a zoomed-in image seems to match up with the silhouette of Skarsgard's rendition of the character. The Crow releases in theaters in the US on August 23, so if the character is indeed coming to Call of Duty, fans can likely expect it to happen around then.

Call of Duty was also rumored to have a Deadpool & Wolverine collaboration, but it remains to be seen if that will happen. There was no mention or tease for any possible crossover in the Season 5 rundown. The new season is, however, adding WWE's Rhea Ripley, Cody Rhodes, and Rey Mysterio.

The Boys Season 4 Finale Gets New Title And Warning After Trump Assassination Attempt

Game News - Thu, 07/18/2024 - 23:34

The fourth season of The Boys came to a close today, but with a major warning and reworked episode name. Amazon and Sony Pictures Television issued a statement condemning political violence as well as letting people know the Prime Video show was filmed last year.

On Instagram, The Boys official account--along with Prime Video--shared the warning for "Season Four Finale," an episode that originally was titled "Assassination Run." You can find the entire statement below, which also shows up before the episode:

"The season finale of The Boys contains scenes of fictional political violence, which some viewers may find disturbing, especially in light of the injuries and tragic loss of life sustained during the assassination attempt on former President Trump.

The Boys is a fictitious series that was filmed in 2023, and any scene or plotline similarities to these real-world events are coincidental and unintentional.

Amazon, Sony Pictures Television, and the producers of The Boys reject, in the strongest terms, real-world violence of any kind."

Earlier this week, there were thoughts that The Boys Season 4 finale could be delayed since there were eerie similarities to the tragic events over the weekend at the Trump rally, which saw one crowd member killed. Spoiler warning for those not caught up, but the penultimate episode for the fourth season featured a plot to assassinate President-Elect Robert Singer in the Prime Video series.

Game News - Thu, 07/18/2024 - 23:17

The Boys Season 4 finale was shrouded in controversy and there was a belief it would be delayed due to the assassination attempt of Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump. That proved not to be the case, but Prime Video renamed the episode from "Assassination Run" to simply "Season Four Finale."

Warning, from here on our we are talking about spoilers from the final episode of The Boys Season 4, titled "Season Four Finale."

After a brief slide of credits, the scene jumps to an underground chamber.

Calhoun was just sworn in after President-elect Bobby Singer (Jim Beaver) was falsely accused of murdering Vice President-elect Victoria Neuman (Claudia Doumit).
