In WandaVision Episode 7, we learned a shocking (or not-so-shocking, depending on how deeply embroiled in fan theories you've been since the show's premiere) truth about Kathryn Hahn's Agnes. Surprise! She's actually been Agatha Harkness all along, and she even gets her very own theme song to prove it. But, like many things in WandaVision, this reveal only served to raise more questions than it answered--namely: Who the hell is Agatha Harkness and why does she matter in Wanda's story? And naturally, while this is still very much a mystery for the MCU, we can look to Agatha's bizarre comic book history for clues. Agatha Harkness was first introduced in Fantastic Four #94 back in 1970, but before you break out the red string and start connecting dots on your MCU F4 conspiracy walls just yet, know that her role with the first family of Marvel was a little odd. Rather than existing as a villain for anyone in the Richards family, Agatha was a governess--a fancy nanny--to Reed and Sue's … [Read more...] about WandaVision: Who Is Agatha Harkness And Why Does She Matter?
Got your eye on Valheim's Draugr fang bow? Not only does this weapon look stylish, it can down enemies swiftly thanks to its superior pierce damage. This bow also borrows a gross item called guck to give it a poisonous effect, sealing its title as the best bow in Valheim. As you'd expect, any item this good is going to be tricky to craft, so you'll need to collect rare resources such as silver and ancient bark before you can add it to your arsenal. Bows offer more versatility than melee weapons as there are several types of arrows in Valheim. You can quickly deplete The Elder's health using fire arrows, whereas Bonemass is weak to frost variants. Regardless of the enemy you're taking on, its always nice to have the option to hang back and attack from a safe distance with a reliable bow. If you're ready to trade in your trusty huntsman bow for a ranged weapon that's more powerful and durable, here's how to get Valheim's Draugr fang bow. Draugr fang bow: How to craft … [Read more...] about How to get the Draugr fang bow in Valheim
In gaming circles, Stephen King's The Mist is best known as the 'science gone awry' story that inspired Half-Life. Yet the novella itself was adapted into its very own text adventure game in 1985. Here, Retro Gamer Magazine discovers how writer Raymond Benson enveloped gamers within The Mist. This is what happened. In 1984, American children's author Mercer Mayer and his business partner John Sansevere founded Angelsoft in White Plains, New York. Their idea was to develop adventure game software for home computers based solely on licensed properties in the hope of attracting casual gamers. The plan was in place, but they struggled to negotiate any suitable licences, so Mercer went to see a man about a dog. A dog named Cujo. Published in 1981, Cujo was Stephen King's grim tale of what happens when good pets go bad. The story culminates with Donna Trenton and her young son Tad getting attacked in their car by a rabid St Bernard. During the ordeal, Donna wishes that Tad was back … [Read more...] about The making of Stephen King’s The Mist: “It’s kind of hard for a text adventure to be scary”
Shortly after rumors began swirling, Activision has confirmed that Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1 + 2 will release on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, and Nintendo Switch this year. The PlayStation and Xbox versions arrive on March 26, while the Switch edition doesn't have a specific release date but is confirmed for 2021. Activision is promising a "variety of upgrades," including 120FPS/1080p and 60FPS/4K visuals, along with spatial audio and other enhancements for the next-gen PlayStation and Xbox versions. The Switch edition, meanwhile, won't have these impressive frame rates and graphics, it seems, but the big appeal is you can play it on the go. Nintendo has sometimes gotten exclusive Tony Hawk games over the years, but the Switch's more standard control scheme makes the game a good fit. "High-fidelity atmospherics will be added to the next-gen upgrade for Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 and 2," reads a line from its description. "This unique graphical feature will allow players to … [Read more...] about Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2 Coming To PS5, Xbox Series X, And Nintendo Switch This Year
This preview was originally released in PC Gamer issue #353 back in January. You can order PC Gamer directly from Magazines Direct or purchase a subscription to save yourself some cash. Agent 11 is the kind of person who smooths back his hair at the start of a brawl, straightens his tie before breaking a nose with the flat of his hand. You never actually see his face, but from the way he bobs around, the man seems very happy in his work as he crushes windpipes, stomps on faces and cracks skulls against countertops. If that brings to mind a certain another numerically-monikered agent, well, he’s certainly in the mix – especially Daniel Craig’s take on Bond as a brutal besuited psychopath. But the star of Fights in Tight Spaces is also John Wick, Henry Cavill reloading his arms, and every single character Jason Statham has ever played. “When we first started, I got Connie [Duffy], who does our video editing, to put together a big folder of scenes clipped out of … [Read more...] about Beat the holy hell out of goons as a slick-suited agent in deckbuilder Fights in Tight Spaces
