Naughty Dog has released the latest multiplayer Dlc for the hit adventure game, Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End. This latest Dlc, titled Bounty Hunters, introduces new tools to capture and create your own gameplay videos, a new objective game mode, new weapons and a new map.
The new game mode is Bounty Hunter which sees two teams compete to reach a set score by collecting bounties from opponents. When a player is taken down they drop a 10 point bounty which must be collected before the enemy can ‘save’ it first. During the battle each team will randomly have a captain selected who, when shot, will yield between 60-120 points. However, these points take time to collect meaning players must work together to give their team time to collect or ‘save’ the points.
The Bounty Hunter update has introduced a plethora of new weapons and boosters as well as a new mystical item, »

Ricky Church reviews Star Wars: Aftermath – Life Debt…
Though Star Wars: The Force Awakens was released months ago, there are still some burning questions left regarding the 30-year gap between the Star Wars trilogies. We’ve slowly been getting more answers about some of these events with books like Bloodline or the Poe Dameron comic and now we’ve gotten more information with Chuck Wendig’s second book in his Star Wars: Aftermath trilogy, Aftermath – Life Debt. The second installment paints a fascinating look at the crumbling Empire as Wendig brings in more of the original heroes in this adventure.
Former Rebel pilot Norra Wexley and her team are tasked with hunting down Imperial officers and deserters while the newly promoted Grand Admiral Rae Sloane plots with her mysterious benefactor to return the Empire to its former glory. Meanwhile, Chancellor Mon Mothma and Princess Leia work to make »

It may be the single most controversial change to a piece of fiction in the history of time. Seriously, this one still gets people upset. In 1996 George Lucas added blaster fire to the cantina scene of the original Star Wars: A New Hope with Han Solo and Greedo... and the world went crazy. George Lucas has said before that Greedo always shot first, but that it simply wasn.t clear. One guy from the set says that.s not true, and Han Solo fired the only shot. And this guy would know, as he.s the one who got hit. Paul Blake was the actor who played Greedo. The bounty hunter tracks his prey to the Mos Eisley cantina where he confronts the smuggler before planning to turn him in to Jabba the Hutt. In the original version of the sequence we see Han Solo blast Greedo from under »

Michael Bay propagandizes for a right-wing idea of “true America,” seething with disdain for anyone who isn’t a former elite soldier turned mercenary. I’m “biast” (pro): nothing
I’m “biast” (con): not a Michael Bay fan
I have not read the source material
(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)
This purportedly true account of the 2012 “Battle of Benghazi” opens with American military contractors Jack Silva (John Krasinski: The Wind Rises, Monsters University), who has just arrived in town, and his old buddy Tyrone “Rone” Woods (James Badge Dale: The Walk, Parkland) bluffing their way past a roadblock by armed Libyans. It doesn’t matter what side the Libyans are on; in the chaos that erupted after Gaddafi’s death: the point is that they are Libyans — suspiciously lawless violent folk, that is, who cannot even get their own nation under control — and not Americans. »
