These days, it’s hard to think of Aliens vs. Predator without rolling your eyes. The title evokes less than pleasant memories of the 2004 film and its abysmal sequel, films that seemed more like B movie fluff than anything else. But there was a time when Aliens vs. Predator generated a lot of excitement in the fanbase, with titles that were comparable to the films … Continue reading A Different Kind of Star Wars: An ‘Aliens vs. Predator’ Retrospective – Screenhub Entertainment
For the longest time, fans of Harry Potter have been clamouring for a return to Hogwarts in a video game. There used to be a time when we’d get regular video games coinciding with the release of a new film, and those games ranged from good to pretty terrible. Ultimately, those games were bound by short production times in order to launch with the release of a new movie. Since then, we’ve gotten a god awful mobile game that was plagued with microtransactions that seriously angered the fandom. Now, it seems that there may be a ray of light in the future as leaked footage of an apparent game has surfaced online.

Announced in 2012 with a reveal trailer shown in 2013, Cyberpunk 2077 has become something of an internet myth, largely due to how invisible the game and the developers have been on promoting content for the game to the public since then. The dystopian Blade Runner inspired game from The Witcher developers CD Projeckt Red has been shown to press twice in 2018, once at E3 and more recently, at Gamescon in August of 2018. Each time though, the public ended up getting denied access to that footage, which both infuriated fans and increased the hype around the game. Now, the Polish studio has pulled the veil back and has given us a 48-minute gameplay demo. The studio has stressed that this isn’t a reflection of the final game and that anything is subject to change, but we now have our first impressions of the game. Here are our thoughts on the game!
The Electronic Entertainment Expo, better known as E3 has come to a conclusion and what an event it was. Full of game reveals, gameplay and a peak at the future of the industry, this particular event had quite a bit to showcase. We’re going to break down some highlights of the expo, showcase our favorite moments and talk about what streaming gaming can mean for the industry and the consumer.
In 2018, God of War was released on the PS4 to universal acclaim and became a best seller overnight. It boosted sales of the PS4 console itself and proved to naysayers that singleplayer gaming isn’t dead. The 2018 edition of the game saw a lot of advancements made, from an emphasis on story and character to a semi-open world structure that encouraged exploring and sidequests. The new game took the action from Ancient Greece, where the original trilogy and its spin-offs took place and brought Kratos, the border-line villain from the original games and thrust him into the realm of Norse mythology, along with the responsibility of being a single dad. It was quite the shift and critics and fans loved it. Now with the sales and reception being so positive, it’s only a matter of time before a follow-up title is announced. So where should Kratos and his son explore next? While it seems that the next game will continue to be set in the Norse Pantheon, the studio is looking to the future and considering other locales to bring the God of War to.
Witness this! The new critically acclaimed God of War game is out today. Taking place years after the events of God of War III, the once angry demigod Kratos has now retired to the northern realms of Midgard (Scandinavia to us mortals) and lives in peace with his wife and son. Fans of the franchise will know how unusual that phrase is, considering Kratos is known for being a rather one dimensional character who was really good at killing, well-everything. That’s all different now though as the game reboots not only the gameplay, but the narrative structure and emphasis on storytelling. Part of the change actually comes thanks to cinema and specifically, the work of renowned director George Miller.
