Supergirl: “Triggers” Review

Warning: Full spoilers for the episode below.

Of the four current Arrowverse shows, only Legends of Tomorrow managed to begin its new season on firm footing last week. The best we can hope for the likes of Flash, Supergirl and Arrow is that they’ll be able to build momentum and improve over time. The good news is that it does appear as though Supergirl can move forward from its underwhelming premiere. “Triggers” rehashes a lot of beats from “Girl of Steel,” but at least the end result is a promising new status quo for the series.

The focus this week was still very much centered around Kara’s depression over the lack of Mon-El in her life. I never realized how many viewers genuinely despise that relationship until after Season 2 wrapped. I get the troubling subtext of Mon-El’s background as an imperialist slave owner, but I felt Season 2 did a good job of allowing him to find redemption for his questionable past and simply establishing an insanely charming dynamic between Melissa Benoist and Chris Wood. You really felt the bond between their two characters, and you feel Kara’s pain and misery over losing that relationship here. Even if you’re firmly in the anti-Mon-El camp, I like to think everyone can agree that Benoist is doing a great job this season exploring Kara’s darker, tormented side.

NBA 2K18 Predicts This Year’s Championship Winner And More

2K Sports has published the results of its annual NBA season simulation. Starting with the most exciting part, the NBA 2K18 simulation predicts that the Golden State Warriors and Boston Celtics will reach the NBA Finals. The Warriors will successfully defend their title, winning the 2017-2018 NBA Championship in five games, the simulation said

The Warriors were just too good, the simulation said, winning the series 4-1. The Celtics’ sole victory was a close one, with Boston taking Game 4 by just two points on the back of a Kyrie Irving triple-double. After claiming the back-to-back title, Warriors coach Steve Kerr won Coach of the Year in the simulation, which is no surprise.

Here are some other takeaways from 2K’s NBA 2K18 season simulation:

  • The Rookie of the Year award went to Ben Simmons of the Philadelphia 76ers. He averaged 16.2 points, 8.1 rebounds, and 7.4 assists.
  • Kevin Durant put up better numbers than LeBron James in terms of points, rebounds, steals, and blocks. Also, Durant won the Finals MVP again.
  • Joel Embiid returns in form, averaging 27 minutes per game, with 17.9 points, 8.5 rebounds, 2 assists, and 2.5 blocks per game.
  • The worst-performing teams were the Miami Heat (22-60), the Indiana Pacers (27-55), the Orlando Magic (30-52), and the Sacramento Kings (30-52).

Go to NBA 2K’s Facebook page to see a more detailed breakdown of NBA 2K18’s latest season simulation. The simulation was conducted using the game’s MyLeague mode.

NBA 2K18 is available now for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC. 2K recently released a patch for the game, and you can see the full patch notes here.

Would you kindly check out this statue?

It’s hard to believe, but it has been a little over a decade since BioShock first released for Xbox 360 and PC. To commemorate this milestone for the first game and the series as a whole, game publisher 2K is releasing a special BioShock 10th Anniversary Collector’s Edition, which includes a copy of BioShock: The Collection and an incredibly detailed Big Daddy and Little Sister statue.

The statue itself lights up; both the Big Daddy’s and Little Sister’s eyes glow yellow when turned on. In addition, the Big Daddy sports a motorized drill complete with special audio sound effects that play upon activating it.

Priced at $200, the BioShock 10 Anniversary Collector’s Edition releases November 14 for PS4 and Xbox One. Those interested in picking it up can only pre-order it at GameStop and the 2K online store. Be wary; only 5,200 copies of this special edition exist, so if you’re eager to purchase it, make sure to snatch it quick.

Watch The Assassin’s Creed Origins Live-Action Trailer

Ubisoft has released a cool new live-action trailer for Assassin’s Creed: Origins. Titled “I Am,” the slickly produced trailer follows main character Bay-yek as he leaps and murders through ancient Egypt. He says, “I’m not an army. I’m not a man. I’m a creed.”

The trailer was directed by Catch Me Daddy director Daniel Wolfe and uses the Nicholas Britell song “The Middle of the World” from the Moonlight soundtrack. Check it out below.

Ubisoft said the trailer was made with “authentic film role,” using some 200 extras to populate its world. “Dozens” of animal species can be seen in the trailer.

Origins launches for PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4 on October 27. Ubisoft also recently announced what’s in the game’s Season Pass, while there will also be an education-themed mode with no combat at all.

Final Day For Destiny 2 Iron Banner Event And Rewards

The next weekly reset for Destiny 2 is approaching. While it marks the end of the current Nightfall, Flashpoint, and so on, it will also wrap up the game’s first-ever Iron Banner event.

Ahead of the reset at 2 AM PT / 5 AM ET / 10 AM BST / 8 PM AEDT on Tuesday, October 17, you still have a chance to take part in Iron Banner matches. The limited-time Crucible mode is 4v4 like all other PvP activities in Destiny 2 and features Quickplay modes and matchmaking. If you don’t already have access, you can check out our guide on how to get into Iron Banner. Things play out differently than in the first Destiny.

Completing Iron Banner matches–win or lose–nets you event-specific Tokens, which can be turned in with Lord Saladin at the Tower. That allows you to get your hands on a variety of new item rewards. You can see all of the Iron Banner weapons, gear, and armor in our gallery, but don’t expect to collect it all. While that is possible, rewards are random, meaning you can open dozens of rewards packages without necessarily getting what you want.

Server maintenance is now underway for Destiny 2, although that shouldn’t impact your ability to play. A computer release is also on the horizon, with Destiny 2 finally launching for PC on October 24.

How Killmonger Can Wear the Black Panther Suit

For Black Panther fans, today’s new trailer offers a feast of geeky delights. The new footage revealed in the trailer offers a closer glimpse of the film’s heroes and villains. And perhaps most intriguing, it features a shot of Michael B. Jordan’s Erik Killmonger suiting up in his own version of the Black Panther costume. In keeping with the grand tradition of movies like iron Man and Ant-Man, it looks as though the climax of Black Panther will feature T’Challa going toe-to-toe with a villain who’s stolen the very source of his powers.

Fans of the Black Panther comics will know that there’s some precedent for Killmonger stealing the image and powers of Black Panther. Read on for all the details…

Destiny 2 PC Launch Trailer, Pre-Load Time Revealed

Destiny 2‘s PC version is almost here. Bungie’s shooter lands on PC October 24, and now the developer has released a launch trailer for it and confirmed when it will be available to pre-load. All footage in the trailer above was captured on PC, presumably on a more-than-capable rig.

The game supports 4K resolution, uncapped frame rates, and custom key mapping. PC players can also adjust the field of view and use up to three monitors. There are also quite a few settings to play around with, including anti-aliasing, foliage detail distance, film grain, wind impulse, and motion blur, among many other things.

Destiny 2 for PC launches at 10 AM PT / 1 PM ET on October 24, exclusively through Blizzard’s Battle.net. That’s notable because it’s the first non-Blizzard game to be offered through the company’s PC service.

Bungie also confirmed on Twitter that that Destiny 2 for PC will be available to pre-load starting on October 18. That’s good news for players looking to jump in precisely when the servers get switched on.

For lots and lots more on Destiny 2’s PC version, check out GameSpot’s roundup of everything you need to know about Destiny 2 PC. In that feature, we cover things like the game’s minimum requirements and recommended specs, along with the control setup and more.
