In a old post I wrote, I mentioned that Dragon Ball GT character Majuub (fused character of Uub and Majin Buu) was going to be joining Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 in the Ultra Pack 2. Today, Majuub wasn’t the only character announced. Dragon Ball FighterZ original character Android 21 will be appearing in Xenoverse 2 as a DLC character. The Ultra Pack 2 includes these two characters and more Parallel Quests. If you like Android 21 from FighterZ, fans can fall in love with this sadistic, sugar loving android. The Ultra Pack 2 is ready to be bought and download for anyone who has any copy of Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 game. This game is available for Switch, XB1, PS4, PC and even upcoming Stadia.

Venom 2 may be rated-R

If we can get a rated-R movie about Joker and Deadpool, what if we could do it with Venom. According to Cinema Blend, Venom producer Matt Tolmach made a comment that he is considering giving the sequel to 2018’s Venom the rated-R treatment. The reason being is because he saw the success to DC’s recent movie Joker which was given the rating R and it earned over a billion dollars. Here is what Tolmach said:

I mean, I think you always have to think about [it], now that that works. Having said that, our movie worked really well. Our franchise exists as it is, and I don’t think anybody is looking to just say, ‘Hey, they [did it]!’ We have a place in the world. So it isn’t like suddenly everybody’s considering what to do with the rating. … I think what Joker does is it tells you that you can succeed. For a very long time, that was the narrative. And Deadpool sort of wrestled that to the turf, and then Logan, but for a long time, that was considered totally forbidden. … So you know, I think it’s the greatest thing in the world that R-rated movies are being embraced by massive audiences. And it just means that there are more opportunities for that kind of storytelling.

With movies like Logan, Deadpool and even Joker, producer Matt Tomach and director Andy Serkis are considering making Venom 2 for a much more older audience. If you didn’t know, the first Venom was released in October 2018 with a PG-13 rating. The movie met with mixed reviews from critics and even hardcore fans. What do you think about a rated-R Venom movie?

Two games are better than one. It’s been announced today by Sega that they will be releasing two Platinum Games in combo pack. The Platinum Games Bayonetta and Vanquish will be releashed in bundle for PS4 and Xbox One owners. The bundle is called Bayonetta & Vanquish 10th Anniversary Bundle.

Bayonetta:

Twenty years ago, from a coffin submerged beneath a gloomy lake, a mysterious woman awoke.

Unable to recall her past, or even her own name, only a single memory of her unknown origin was left impressed upon her: the horrifying “witches’ power” to summon forth ferocious demons and annihilate the servants of heaven.

Returning to life in the modern world after centuries of absence, Bayonetta followed the clues of her hazy memories, eventually reaching the remote European city of Vigrid. Unimpeded by the countless legions of angels assailing her… Fateful meetings drawing out lost memories…

What lies in wait for Bayonetta…?

Vanquish:

Since the late 20th century, the precipitous pace of population rise on Earth pushed the total number of humans on the planet past 10 billion. The lack of consumable food and energy for this expanding population led to numerous wars over depleting natural resources. It was in this period of fear, uncertainty, and doubt that America placed her hopes in the skies with the SC-01 Providence space colony.

The colony was not immune to social evils that had become prevalent on earth. The Order of the Russian Star, a faction of the Russian military who had taken power in their homeland via coup d’état, immediately launched a surprise invasion of the colony. They began work converting the microwave energy array into a powerful weapon in the skies, then unleashed this fearsome power upon the residents of San Francisco. The Order’s declaration of war via weapon of mass destruction complete, they demanded the unconditional surrender of the United States within 10 hours, under penalty of the destruction of New York City.

In steadfast refusal to cooperate with aggressors, the President had no choice but to order a military strike to annihilate the invaders and recapture the colony. The strike was to be led by Lt. Col. Robert Burns.

DARPA operative Sam Gideon has also been assigned to the mission with an advanced weapons prototype.
