Tom Hanks Movie Greyhound Gets Apple TV+ Release Date After Skipping Theaters

Avatar

Published

on

Tom Hanks’ upcoming war film Greyhound won’t be hitting theaters because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Instead, Apple TV+ nabbed the upcoming movie for its streaming service.

And Greyhound will release on July 10, according to Variety. This marks the first major film Apple TV+ will have on its service that wasn’t produced as original content, as Greyhound was originally going to release theatrically in June.

Inspired by a true story, Greyhound follows Commander Ernest Krause (Tom Hanks), a naval skipper captain, as he joins other allied boats in a battle with German U-boats during World War II. This is the third feature-length film Hanks has written. In 2011, he penned Larry Crowne, and in 1996, he directed, wrote, and starred in That Thing You Do. Greyhound also stars Elisabeth Shue (Adventures in Babysitting), Stephen Graham (Boardwalk Empire), Manuel Garcia-Rulfo (6 Underground), and Karl Glusman (Devs).

Apple TV+ launched in November 2019, with little fanfare. The streaming service was initially made up entirely of original content, but Apple has since started attempting to fill out its catalog, ponying up $25 million for a Billie Eilish documentary set to air sometime later this year.

There are a few bright spots on Apple TV+ at this time, like the game developer comedy series Mythic Quest, which recently got greenlit for Season 2 and had a perfect quarantine episode.

And while you wait for Greyhound to come out, consider listening to GameSpot’s weekly TV series and movies-focused podcast, You Should Be Watching. With new episodes premiering every Wednesday, you can watch a video version of the podcast over on GameSpot Universe or listen to audio versions on Spotify, Stitcher, Google Play, and Apple Podcasts.

AFL 2021 Grand Final Predictions

Avatar

Published

on

The AFL Grand Final is still months away, but the season is already beginning to heat up. There is a great deal of buzz and excitement around many of the AFL’s teams this year, with some of last year’s leaders powering on while others fall away. Will we see the same top eight battling it out in this season’s Grand Finals? It seems unlikely — especially if the first two rounds are anything to go by.

Take a look at our predictions for the AFL 2021 Grand Final, as we explore the form teams, the stumblers, the early frontrunners and the exciting outsiders.

The early season ladder

What conclusions can we draw from the early season ladder? Well, not many. Five teams have won their first two games, giving us a clutch of early frontrunners. But these are early frontrunners who could see themselves plummeting down the ladder after a couple of losses. 

The ladder is interesting to look at, however. Port Adelaide, who topped the ladder last time out, are right back up there again with a 100% record. Richmond — the current grand final champions — have also failed to put a foot wrong so far, as have Western Bulldogs.

But where is Geelong? Where are the Brisbane Lions? Well, the Cats got off to a bad start with a defeat at last year’s bottom-ranked team, Adelaide Crows, while the Lions have been having a generally torrid time of it, losing at home to the Swans before succumbing to the Geelong Cats by a single point at the GMHBA stadium.

Other teams working hard and securing maximum returns in the opening rounds are the hotly tipped sides Melbourne and Gold Coast, neither of whom made it to the Grand Finals last time out.

Last season’s grand finals

As well as the teams already mentioned, last year’s AFL Grand Finals were rounded out by West Coast, St. Kilda and Collingwood. Of these three, only West Coast fell at the first hurdle, going down by a single point to rivals Collingwood, while St. Kilda and Collingwood themselves were knocked out by eventual finalists Richmond and Geelong.

Who won the AFL Grand Final 2020? Well, that accolade goes to Richmond, adding their second title in as many years and cementing their place as the dominant AFL side of recent seasons. Will Richmond do it again in 2021? Many people seem to think so, but there is still a long way to go in the season.

The dormant threats

So, who else is in the running? The main outsiders to watch currently appear to be Sydney Swans, who are making up for a woeful season last year with some strong early wins. The Swans managed only 20 points across the whole regular season in 2020, but have already notched up 40% of that total this year after only two games.

Similarly, the Adelaide Crows’ famous victory against Geelong in the opening round has made fans sit up and take notice, although time will tell how they bounce back from a defeat in Sydney in round two.  

Melbourne, who were unlucky to miss out on the top eight last season after a strong run in the final rounds, appears to have learned from their mistakes. The Victorians may be another shrewd outside bet, as — with two wins and no losses to their name — they appear not to be leaving it so late this year.

Grand final predictions for AFL 2021

Taking all this into account, our early season predictions for the AFL Grand Final 2021 are:

  • Richmond Tigers – It would be a huge shock for Richmond to miss out on the top eight.
  • Port Adelaide Power – Power will also expect to be in the Grand Final placings.
  • Sydney Swans – We just can’t ignore their early season form.
  • Western Bulldogs – The Bulldogs are a strong side who are looking to capitalise on a decent showing last year.
  • Melbourne Demons – Melbourne left it late in 2020 and are keen not to make the same mistake this season.
  • Geelong Cats – The Cats were caught out by the Crows but should be strong enough to get over this blip.
  • Brisbane Lions – Brisbane perhaps underestimated Sydney and went close in Geelong. They should bounce back.
  • Adelaide Crows – Last season’s bottom-ranked side are desperate to prove that they should not be written off.

Who will make the cut this season?

There’s still a long way to go, but which AFL teams do you think will make the cut this season? Who will be facing off when the time comes for the Grand Final kick-off at 2:30 p.m., 25 September?

on

Streaming services have been a great source of excitement for the gaming community. Now gamers don’t have to spend all that money optimizing their PCs to support video games. Game streaming services are the solution to this problem. You will have an extensive gaming library and can play the best games with great ease and no lags. All you have to do is make sure that you have a good internet connection.

There is no question that people love to spend time playing games, whether it is Slotsformoney.com or the popular AAA titles. The gaming industry is likely to enjoy more success in the coming years because of how it is so enjoyed on a global scale. 

There are many game streaming services now available in the market. A question that often crosses an avid gamer’s mind is which one is the best option. In this article, we will talk about the top game streaming services so that you can see for yourself and assess which streaming service can meet all your requirements.

Here Are Some Top Game Streaming Services of 2021

PlayStation Now

PlayStation has always been around and has been one of the preferred choices for most gamers. If you are looking for a great game streaming service, consider subscribing to PlayStation Now for PS4 and PC. 

You can play all the exclusive games like Red Dead Redemption, Borderlands, God of War III: Remastered, The Last of Us, Uncharted series, Batman Arkham series and much more. Sony’s catalogue boasts of over 800 titles, and they keep adding new titles and DLC features regularly.

All you need to get started is a PlayStation Network account, a DualShock 4 controller and a great internet connection. If you are not sure about going for the paid subscription, consider going for the seven-day free trial. 

Stadia

This popular Google streaming service is regularly updated with great features, and it is well known for being highly compatible. You can use it to play games on all devices, from Android devices to laptops and televisions. You can also use any controller that you are comfortable with and enjoy playing games on Stadia.  You will have access to the best AAA game titles on this streaming service.

The game library is said to grow more in the near future with high-quality games. If you go for the Stadia Pro option, you get discounts and free games. The Pro option will also let you stream your games in 4K HDR with an impressive 5.1 surround sound. 

GeForce Now

GeForce Now is a great streaming service option to use on a PC or an Android device. You get to have a great library of pre-installed games that are available for streaming instantly across many devices. While it doesn’t have a dedicated library, unlike other streaming services, the great benefit is that it allows you to stream the games that you have purchased from other publishers. However, keep in mind that it only supports those games that are published by the leading publishers in the gaming world. 

You can give this streaming service a try by going for the free tier option where you can have one-hour playing sessions, although you will have to wait in queues. Do remember that when it comes to GeForce Now, it is necessary to have a robust internet connection for the best streaming experience.

Xbox Game Pass

Gamers love Xbox Game Pass for having an excellent library of games, where a lot of them are popular titles which you can download on your Xbox One’s storage device and play completely for free, without having to worry about your internet connection. 

Xbox Game Pass is often described as the “Netflix for Games” and for a very good reason. It offers games compatible with Xbox One and Xbox 360 backwards. You can also check out the popular Xbox exclusive games.

As a member, you are guaranteed to get the best gaming deals and discounts for many DLCs as well. If you are a serious and versatile gamer who enjoys spending long hours playing video games on the weekend, then this is absolutely the right choice for you.

Microsoft also keeps regularly adding new titles to the service. Although you may notice that the games do take time to load, the wait will be worth it because the gaming experience will hardly have any latencies or delays whatsoever.

Shadow by Blade

This highly versatile game streaming service offers video games and offers dedicated UIs for PC gaming apps and home consoles. Shadow is more than just a game streaming service. It is better described as a cloud computing service. 

This streaming service is very compatible. You can use this service on PC, Android, iOS, Mac and Ubuntu as well. You also have the convenience of easily switching between various devices in just a few seconds and resume your game without losing any game progress whatsoever. Shadow can even run games at 4k with a great frame rate of 60 frames per second. 

If you have been told that you need expensive PCs for gaming, you don’t have to worry about purchasing the right PC. Instead, you can choose to go for Shadow to have the best high-quality gaming experience. 

This streaming service is also excellent for creatives who want to be productive. If you are an artist or a writer, it can greatly support all your creative endeavors and ventures with the many creative applications that it offers.

 Conclusion

When you are at odds on which game streaming service you want to go for, make sure to try all these game streaming services out. Most game streaming services offer a free trial. Make sure to check the library of the free games offered, see what games you will need to pay for and consider whether they are worth your time. Although streaming services are very cost-effective, it is still important to take these things into consideration if you want to get the best deals as a gamer.

xQc Banned From NoPixel GTA RP Server Once Again

Avatar

Published

on

Popular Twitch streamer Félix “xQc” Lengyel has once again been banned from the NoPixel GTA RP server on April 18th, making this his fourth ban from the same server.

This recent ban comes less than a week since his return from his third ban from the NoPixel server on April 12th.

Why did xQc get banned again?

In his Twitch stream, the 25-year-old has explained multiple reasons behind his latest ban from the server. He has claimed that the reasons behind his ban include talking about other players’ bans when being arrested, dropping a gun when he’s already dead, and abusing vehicle scuff, which goes in violations against the server rules.

Lengyel’s ban from the NoPixel GTA RP server is set to last for a whopping 30 days, making it the longest ban he has received so far. He has further claimed that he will not appeal against the ban.

Chances are, that even after the expiration of his ban, he won’t be returning to the server anytime soon.

While speaking about his fourth ban, xQc hinted that there might be a possible bias against him. “I feel good because I made my case that there’s something against me, so I’m happy about it,” the Twitch star said.

The Best co-op games to tryout in 2021

Avatar

Published

on

For anyone looking to enjoy some great Co-op games with friends fret not as we are here to help you in choosing some great Co-op games. It doesn’t matter if you are visiting a friend’s house or just joining each other in an online lobby, the games below will offer the best Co-op experience to you and your friends.

1. It Takes Two (Available on- PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, PC)

A brand new entry into the list. It Takes Two works on the similar formula of the previous title “A Way Out” from the same Developer, Hazelight Studios. 

The story follows a struggling couple as they deal with their shortcomings, which might result in a divorce. The couple – Cody and May, are turned into miniature knitted dolls after the couple’s daughter cries on dolls turning them into dolls by a magic spell. From there, it’s up to you and a teammate to navigate through a fantastical world where the unpredictable hides around every corner, clear challenges to make your way back to the house, and in the process hopefully, save their fractured relationship.

Improving upon the same split-screen co-op formula from previous titles, It Takes Two truly stands out from others in the same genre. It Takes Two is a perfect Co-op experience for two and offers a very powerful story and gameplay experience. 

2. Monster Hunter World and Monster Hunter Rise (Available on- PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, PC, and Monster Hunter Rise only on Nintendo Switch)

Another great Co-op experience set on a large open-world map. Group up with other hunters or friends through local co-op or online co-op and set foot in the wild map of Monster Hunter. Combine attacks and abilities to deal as much damage as possible and take down challenging monsters spread across the map to earn rewards and materials. 

Now also available on Nintendo Switch in form of Monster Hunter Rise, the franchise is now available on every modern platform. 

3. Phasmophobia (Available on- PC)

The first and the only game that we recommend playing in VR mode with friends. Phasmophobia is another indie game that gained the much-needed spotlight due to the pandemic. Although Phasmophobia is a Horror game with ghost hunting as its main focus, while playing in VR it becomes more of a horror-comedy. 

Team up with 3 other ghost hunters and use your ghost hunting techs such as cameras, UV flashlights, thermometers, and more to find and track a ghost. Your objective is to gather evidence to pin down what type of ghost is haunting the place while remaining alert about ghost behaviors and hunts. 

4. Among Us (Available on- Android, iOS, PC, Switch, and soon on- Xbox platform)

Definitely, the hidden gem of an Indie game that exploded in popularity during pandemic induced lockdowns and quickly peaked on every chart. From an avg of 500-700 players in 2018, the game peaked with nearly 500,000 players in 2020. 

The game puts you on a ship with 9 other players with at least one or two imposters out on a task to kill every crewmate and win the game. As a crewmate, you have to complete different tasks around the ship as fast as possible before imposters slaughter the majority of the crew. Imposter can sabotage the ship’s reactors and lights to slow crew movement, while the crew can report a body or press the call button to have an emergency meeting to vote out possible imposters.

Among Us is free on Android and iOS, and costs only $5 on PC and Switch. The game supports crossplay between these platforms and allows you to team up and play with your friends on any platform. 

5. Destiny 2 (Available on- PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, PC)

destiny 2 server maintenance

Another open-world game to enjoy with friends. While Destiny 2 is a Free-2-Play game, only the base game with previously released DLCs before Forsaken DLC is available for players to enjoy for free. Destiny 2 is one of the most unique games in the Looter Shooter genre. The game is an Open World action MMO with a single evolving world. The game offers different game modes like PVP, PVPVE, and PVE each of which can be played with friends in a lobby.

Also, Destiny 2 offers cross-platform support with features such as cross-play and cross-save available for free. Destiny 2 offers one of the most polished online AAA experiences available with a little bit of everything: An epic story, intense gameplay moments, and an endless hunt for better and cooler-looking armor or gun. It is a fun and chill co-op experience for you and your friends to wind down after a long day.

6. Grand Theft Auto Online (Available on-  PS4, Xbox One, PC, Xbox Series X, PS5)

gta online prime gaming

One of the oldest game on the list which to this day is extremely popular. Even seven years after its launch, the game’s concurrent player population is at an all-time high. 

With Rockstar’s constant support of new content and gameplay improvements, the game still feels and rocks shockingly good. GTA Online takes the GTA V and puts it online in an open-world sandbox. Join up with your friends and complete missions throughout the large state of San Andreas.
