Keanu Reeves Wants To Direct Netflix’s BRZRKR Film

In addition to acting in movies and video games, Keanu Reeves keeps busy with other ventures, including co-writing a comic book called BRZRKR. Netflix is turning the comic book into a film and animated series, and Reeves recently told Collider that he may want to helm the movie himself."I know how it's a lot of work, but the film that I directed, Man of Tai Chi, was born, I became the director because I was part of the writing process, and I didn't want to hand it over," Reeves said. "I was like, oh, okay, I have to direct this. I'm not quite there yet on BRZRKR. I have to read the script, but I'm also interested in having a collaborator and what they could bring to it."The likelihood of Reeves directing the film seems fairly low even to the actor himself, who says there's...

Exclusive First Preview – Garbage Pail Kids: Mad Mike And The Quest For Stale Gum

Introduction The year 1985 contained so many cultural touchstones: Queen’s legendary Live Aid performance, Coca-Cola’s infamous New Coke release, the first-ever WrestleMania, and much more. Likely the most crucial moment to readers of Game Informer was the debut of the Nintendo Entertainment System. The NES pulled the burgeoning industry out of the “video game crash” and introduced countless iconic characters and franchises. It seemed like every hit property received a game at the time. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Top Gun, DuckTales, Dungeons & Dragons, American Gladiators: the list goes on and on. However, one iconic brand shockingly never made the transition into a NES game. Garbage Pail Kids, which also debuted in 1985, was a trading card series that mixed the cuteness of the h...

You Can’t Play Overwatch 2 Right Now Because It’s Under Attack

Image: Blizzard Entertainment If you’ve been having trouble getting into Overwatch 2 on launch, you’re not alone. Blizzard president Mike Ybarra announced on Twitter that the Overwatch 2 servers are currently undergoing a “mass” distributed denial of service (DDoS) attack, which typically occurs when something is maliciously flooded with traffic to prevent others from connecting. This is likely the main culprit for the connection issues plaguing anyone who’s trying to log into the game. Overwatch 2 just launched today, and people have been reporting obscenely long wait times, with some sitting behind tens of thousands of players. There have been other launch issues, such as missing cosmetics, missing match histories, and buggy cameras. Weird errors are normal for a massive live service gam...

Overwatch 2 Review – A Heroic Return

Overwatch took the gaming world by storm when it launched in 2016, thanks to its well-balanced roster of unique heroes and terrific objective-based, first-person-shooting gameplay. The game’s popularity endured through the years thanks to a wealth of new content like characters, maps, cosmetics, and game modes, adding to the terrific foundation. However, once the content dried up for Overwatch, the public interest followed shortly afterward. Overwatch 2 represents the re-emergence of one of the top multiplayer games of the last generation, delivering a 5v5 format, a free-to-play structure, and a ton of new content. The result is an action-packed and enjoyable progression of the beloved hero-shooter franchise, but one that feels less revolutionary and more iterative than expected. The co...

Screenshot: Censor / YouTubeI am now convinced that “female Call of Duty streamer” is the hardest job in the world.

Immediately, eyes turned toward Amine.. Prior to the most recent events, people primarily accused Amine of competing in easier matches by artificially matching with “bot” pl...
