It was a sad day when EA decided to scrap Visceral Games. This, in turn, resulted in the cancelation of its third-person action Star Wars game, codenamed “Ragtag.” The game’s early in-game footage looked breathtaking, and with Visceral Games having done Dead Space and Uncharted creator Amy Hennig co-leading the project, a lot of gamers were looking forward to it. In a recent interview, Hennig reveals that the canceled Star Wars game was actually further into development than expected. Too bad we won’t get to see it in its finished state.

“I wish people could have seen more of it because it was a lot farther along than people ever got a glimpse of,” Hennig tells USgamer. “And it was good, you know? But it just didn’t make sense in EA’s business plan, ultimately. Things changed over the course of that time I was there. So you know, what can you do.”

She also talks about the challenges of creating a third-person action game using the Frostbite Engine, the game engine developed by EA DICE.

“So I think Visceral was sort of beset with a lot of challenges,” she revealed. “Even so, we were making a game; people have said it was an Uncharted Star Wars. That’s sort of reductive, but it’s useful because people can kind of visualize something in their head. But what that meant is we obviously had to take the Frostbite Engine, because there was the internal initiative to make sure that everybody was on the same technology, but it was an engine that was made to do first-person shooters not third-person traversal cinematic games. So building all of that third-person platforming and climbing and cover taking and all that stuff into an engine that wasn’t made to do that. We did a lot of foundational work that I think the teams are still benefiting from because it’s a shared engine, but it’s tough when you spend a lot of time doing foundational stuff but then don’t get to go ta-da! [laughs] You know, here’s the game.”

EA as a publishing company has been a sore subject for a lot of gamers since it was the company’s idea to shut down Visceral Games and cancel its Star Wars game. It also received flak for the way it handled Star Wars Battlefront 2’s microtransactions. The other game it is publishing, Anthem, has been getting less-than-stellar reviews, which makes it sad since developer BioWare was at the top of its game with Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic and the Mass Effect trilogy.

So what’s next for EA and Star Wars? Respawn Entertainment is working on bringing a Star Wars game featuring lightsabers. The name of the game is Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, and it’s going to be set during the time where the Jedi are being hunted. It’s expected to be released in Holiday 2019. So far Respawn has been receiving lots of praises for its newly released battle royale free-to-play game, Apex Legends, which is set in the Titanfall universe.

Jump Force Hero Wall -PlayStation Ad Video Games 4

Jump Force, the crossover fighting game featuring characters from Shonen Jump, was recently released. Players can choose to play as Dragon Ball Z’s Goku, Naruto, One Piece’s Luffy, Bleach’s Ichigo, My Hero Academia’s Izuku “Deku” Midoriya and many more. To help promote the video game, the marketing team went all out at Tokyo Metro Station to give the effect that a few of these powerful characters decided to release their anger out on the wall. These are pretty impressive and larger than life.

Bandai Namco’s marketing team created three impact craters on the wall, each representing the aftermath caused by the special powers from Dragon Ball Z’s Goku, One Piece’s Luffy and Naruto.

chris hemsworth thor hulk hogan

Hulk Hogan is a legend in wrestling who has appeared in movies like Rocky III and Suburban Commando. (Who remembers that one?) Now we have news that Chris Hemsworth is going to play Hulk Hogan in an upcoming biopic from director Todd Phillips.

Chris Hemsworth is set to play Hulk Hogan, according to The Hollywood Reporter. And if you recall, Todd Phillips is the director of the upcoming standalone Joker film starring Joaquin Phoenix as the Clown Prince of Crime. It’s an interesting piece of news since that means both Mark Ruffalo and Hemsworth truly are buddies since they have played characters named Hulk.

The Hulk Hogan biopic will bring Phillips together again with screenwriter Scott Silver since both of them have worked on the script for The Joker film. John Pollono will be joining Silver as the co-screenwriter.

The Hulk Hogan film deals are almost done, and once that’s out of the way, it will be seeing a release on Netflix. Sources close to The Hollywood Reporter says that the movie will focus on his rise to fame, making it more of a Hulkster and Hulkamania origin story.

The wrestler was caught in a sex tape scandal thanks to Gawker, which managed other sites like Jezebel, io9, Deadspin and Kotaku. He hit back with a lawsuit that ultimately ended Gawker, but the other sites were unaffected and are now managed by Univision.

 

Chris Hemsworth will be back as Thor in Avengers: Endgame. The conclusion to Avengers: Infinity War will be released in theaters on April 26, 2019. You can also check out Todd Phillips’ The Joker movie on October 4, 2019.

Fans of wrestling, however, can catch others wrestlers on the big screen with Fighting with My Family, starring Dwayne Johnson. It follows wrestler Paige as she competes to become a WWE star.

Legendary Teaming With Now You See Me Writer For Oz TV Series

Legendary teaming with Now You See Me writer for Oz TV series

Variety reports that Legendary Entertainment is teaming with Ed Ricourt, one of the minds behind the original hit heist thriller Now You See Me, to develop a series based on the classic Land of Oz novels from L. Frank Baum.

RELATED: Sci-Fi Hero Quatermass Getting Big Screen Reboot From Legendary

Set in the magical world and exploring characters not previously adapted for previous adaptations, Ricourt will write and produce the series, which will see the land of Oz erupt into chaos, fear and war when a long-exiled witch returns. A young servant girl may be Oz’s only hope to stop the witch, but may send her down the path to become the most dangerous and powerful woman in the land.

“I’m thrilled to partner with Legendary TV and dj2 to adapt my take on Baum’s rich, complex OZ book series which has influenced me creatively since childhood,” said Ricourt.

The untitled series is set to be executive produced by Dmitri M. Johnson and Stephan Bugaj for dj2 Entertainment and sources indicate Legendary is closing in on a director for the fantasy project.

Ricourt, whose previous TV credits include the Marvel Netflix hit Jessica Jones and the M. Night Shyamalan-produced Fox series Wayward Pinesis most known for co-writing the first entry in the surprise hit heist franchise Now You See Me, which spawned two sequels, the first of which was released in 2016 and the second of which is still currently in development.

Legendary has been part of the backbone of numerous hit TV shows including the sci-fi actioner The Expanse and Netflix’s reboot of the classic sci-fi series Lost in Space, while dj2 is most notable for their work adapting video games for the big screen, including the upcoming Sonic the Hedgehog film, which is set to hit theaters on November 8, the Donnie Yen-led adaptation of Sleeping Dogs, which is currently in pre-production, and a series adaptation of the 2018 horror game Vampyr.

Batman Ben Affleck

Director Zack Snyder was instrumental in developing the DC Extended Universe, and he brought on board Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, Jason Momoa as Aquaman, Ezra Miller as Flash, Ray Fisher as Cyborg, and Henry Cavill as Superman. Of course, we can’t forget about Ben Affleck, who appeared as Batman in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Justice League. Snyder hasn’t forgotten as well since he made a farewell post to the actor while also saying he’s the best Batman ever.

“There was a time above… a time before… there were perfect things… diamond absolutes. But things fall… things on earth. And what falls… is fallen. In the dream, it took me to the light. A beautiful lie… Best Batman ever. Thank you, my friend, for blessing me with that ****ing glorious chin and an amazing heart,” Snyder said via his Vero account. The post also featured an image of Affleck as Batman in his brown trench coat from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

This comes after speculation about whether or not Ben Affleck would be returning as the Caped Crusader. The actor tweeted an article from Deadline that said that he was passing the torch. In addition to portraying the Dark Knight, Affleck was also set to direct and write the upcoming standalone Batman movie, but that role ultimately was given to director Matt Reeves. The actor appeared on Jimmy Kimmel and revealed that he couldn’t come up with a satisfactory script, and ended the interview by saying that he’s not Batman. Even before Reeves took over, there were reports about Affleck wanting out.

There have been a few rumors of who’s going to play Batman in the upcoming film including Armie Hammer. However, the actor revealed to Yahoo that Warner Bros. hasn’t contacted him about it.

For now, we can still expect the Matt Reeves’ The Batman to hit theaters on June 25, 2021.

As music lovers, we all look for that pair of over-the-ear headphones that can give us great sound quality without costing us an arm and a leg. Since your average consumer can’t afford Bose, Sony, or Beats headphones, we strive to look for a pair that will give us what we need at a price that fits our budgets. There are a lot of manufacturers that produce headphones that aim to meet in the middle, and one such company is Mixcder.

Mixcder has three different, over the ear, noise canceling headphones: The E9, E8, and E7. For the last few weeks, we’ve been testing out the E7, which is the most affordable model of the three, to see how it fairs in providing us with quality audio.

DESIGN

Right out of the box, you’ll realize that the E7 does not use any premium materials in its build. Which is expected for the price point. The ear cups are made from the same plastic that you would find in other budget-friendly headphones. The plastic itself doesn’t have the same premium feel that you would get from metal or polycarbonate plastics, but the headphones itself doesn’t feel cheap. It has a bit of durability and sturdiness to it, and if I were to drop the headphones, they won’t break.

The headband on the E7 feels to be made from a thin piece of aluminum that gives it toughness and pliability. The aluminum is wrapped in foam for comfort, which is then wrapped in leather-like fabric. The padding on the ear cups as well is wrapped in foam and the leather-like material. The headphones are surprisingly comfortable to wear. I didn’t feel any pressure being pressed up against my ears, nor did It ever feel like the headphones were squeezing my head.

On the E7 you’ll find physical buttons on both the left and right side. These buttons are not seamlessly blended into the frame, but instead pop out just enough to make it easy for you to find them. They have a nice tactile and responsive feel to them, but they do downgrade the headphones overall pleasing look. On the right channel is where you’ll find the power/pairing button, micro-USB port for charging, and the volume buttons. On the left channel is where you’ll find the switch to turn on/off the ANC and a 3.5mm auxiliary port. A blue LED light does come on to let you know that ANC is activated.

PERFORMANCE

When I usually see headphones with ANC under $100, I’m pretty skeptical about how it will usually sound, but the E7 diminished that skepticism. Built with 40mm drivers, the headphones sound great on the low end. The headphones have enough room to allow the drivers to really move and push out that bumping feeling. At high volumes, you can feel the drivers really working. Without using any presets, the headphones already favor the low end, which sets the mids and highs just where they need to be to compliment and balance out the lows. At higher volumes, I was surprised that there wasn’t any type of distortion in the mids or highs.

The E7 does suffer from a lot of sound leaks, so be wary when wearing these headphones in public spaces. At medium volumes, anyone within a foot or two next to you will be able to hear what you’re listening to. Listening to the music at high volumes, well you can forget about the people around you, as they’ll probably be annoyed as they’ll be able to clearly hear what you’re listening to. When it comes to the ANC, I didn’t hear any difference when it was either on or off, so it was difficult to figure out if it was even working. I knew it was on, only due to the fact I switched it on, but other than that. I was pretty much left in the dark.

Battery life is really impressive on the E7. On a single charge, I was able to use the headphones, with moderate use for about an entire week before I needed to recharge it. Mixcder states that the E7 can give you about 20-hours of continuous use without ANC, and 18-hours with ANC. To fully charge the headphones will take you just 2-hours, so you can get back to listening to music in just a short amount of time. The E7 uses Bluetooth 4.0 which will give you a range of about 30-35 feet, which also gives a really good signal when watching videos, as I didn’t experience any delay or latency while watching YouTube.

FINAL REACTION

When buying Over-the-ear ANC headphones for less than $100, you’ll always have that speculation of “Am I getting a bang for my buck.” You can either strike gold with your purchase, or you can be left with something that will ultimately turn into a paperweight. Priced at just $59.99, the E7 by Mixcder is a comfortable pair of headphones, that, though lacks a quality and premium build, easily makes up for it with a great and dynamic sound. Battery life will keep you moving and grooving for up to 20-hours, but the ANC hardly makes any discernible difference and you’ll suffer from a lot of sound leaks. The thing I appreciated the most about the E7 is the inclusion of a carrying case. Where most headphones under $100 wouldn’t include one, such as my Audio-Technica SR30, which are priced at $99. The Mixcder E7 proves that sometimes you don’t always need to go with the name-brand and that buying the smaller guys can lead you to get that “diamond in the rough.”

Score. 3.5/5
