Star Wars: The Last Jedi Director Has Shot One Scene for Episode IX

Share.

“Everyone is in communication.”

A scene for Star Wars: Episode IX has already been shot by The Last Jedi director Rian Johnson.

In an interview with MTV (via TheWrap), Episode IX director Colin Trevorrow said he asked Johnson to shoot a scene in a specific location, and Johnson was happy to oblige. However, Trevorrow did not go into any details about the scene or why it was particularly important to film months before Episode IX begins production.

“There was one little thing,” said Trevorrow. “It wasn’t an adjustment, it was just, ‘Could you shoot this one extra thing while you’re in this place on this day?’ And he did, which was great.” Trevorrow went on to note that making this new set of Star Wars films is a collaborative effort and that “everyone is in communication.”

Johnson asked a similar favor from The Force Awakens director J.J. Abrams, as Johnson wanted Abrams to make a slight, but important, change to The Force Awakens’ ending.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi opens in theaters on December 15, while Episode IX will be released on May 24, 2019.

Rainbow Six Siege Update 2.1 Out Now, Here Are The Patch Notes

Rainbow Six Siege‘s next patch, version 2.1, is now available on all platforms. It’s positioned as the “first major title update” coming as part of the ongoing Operation Health initiative, the aim of which is to improve the “overall Rainbow Six Siege experience.”

In terms of update 2.1’s major focuses, there are no big surprises, as Ubisoft has previewed the changes that are to come. That doesn’t make them any less welcome, though. 2.1 introduces One-Step Matchmaking, which “means more stability and faster matchmaking results.” Ubisoft describes it as a “giant step towards better performance and faster queue times.”

Interactive Matchmaking is also new, allowing you to freely browse the menus while waiting for a match. You can purchase new Operators, tweak your loadouts, and so on, all of which could previously only be done if you hadn’t yet entered a matchmaking queue. Following a match, you and your party can vote to go back to the menu, re-enter matchmaking, or continue with your current group.

In terms of gameplay itself, the previously discussed hitbox changes have been implemented. Put simply, players will no longer suffer damage when they take hits to things that should not hurt them, such as baggy clothing or accessories. This is true for all existing and future Operators. Ubisoft says it “will allow for a full artistic freedom on character models and customization without a heavy impact on gameplay balancing.”

On the balance side, Glaz has been deemed too effective, particularly in high-level play. As a result, his weapon’s damage has been reduced and his accuracy lowered when firing repeatedly. “At short distance especially, defenders will take more body shots before dying to the Dragunov,” Ubisoft says. This and some changes to the availability of smoke grenades are discussed in detail on the Siege website.

Other changes include resolving certain exploits, such as being able to melee kill someone through Mira’s mirror. Three locations where spawn kills are possible have also been addressed (shown in the images above), and others will be targeted in future updates. You can check out all of the other bug fixes in the patch notes below. For the full rundown on the update, head here.

The game’s next patch will be update 2.2.2. Ubisoft says this will “issues with Hibana, smoke grenade replication, aiming consistency, Alpha Pack deployment, and other long-persisting issues. However, it should be noted that a lot of what we are working on regarding gameplay fixes will be arriving in Season 3.”

    Dragon Ball Super Episode 95: “The Worst! The Most Evil! Frieza’s Rampage!!” Review

    Share.

    A showcase of power.

    Warning: The following review contains spoilers for the episode.

    Episode 95 holds nothing back as we witness just how strong Frieza has become. Although centered entirely on him and his antics, Episode 95 never falters, delivering a great episode and an excellent lead into the upcoming Tournament of Power.

    It’s tough to find any moment that stands out above the rest when Frieza’s villainy is on display. That’s one of the things that made Episode 95 so compelling: Dragon Ball Super found multiple ways to show off Frieza, and each was just as interesting as the last. I particularly liked Frieza’s internal discussion on how he grew in power, simply training mentally for countless years, imagining every possible way he and Goku could fight. Not only did it make for an interesting segment, but speaks volumes about how obsessed Frieza has become. No longer is he the Emperor of Evil, instead, we see Frieza the man out for revenge.

    Dragon Ball Super Episode 95: "The Worst! The Most Evil! Frieza's Rampage!!"  Review

    The way Toei Animation handled animating Frieza this week also helped seal just how sadistic he can be. There are several moments throughout the episode where we get to see his sly grin as he murders someone, or watch as he confidently unleashes an attack as if it were no effort at all. Although brief, it’s these little moments that make his character even more believable and helps sell me on just what we can expect from Frieza in the future.

    These well drawn moments help display what makes Frieza so compelling: his attitude. It’s this very thing that’s made him such a great villain since his introduction. He’s opportunistic, he’s evil and best (and worst) of all, he simply doesn’t care. Often times the best villain in a series is the one who just wants to see the world burn, and Frieza fits that mold perfectly. Episode 95 does a great job of displaying this as Frieza kills dozens of henchmen, using his own twisted justification to make it seem right. Just a few minutes later we see him drop a nearly fatal blow on Goku, all while trying to convince another Universe to abduct him. It’s one thing after another and it all leads up to a clear conclusion: Frieza will stop at nothing to kill, and the Tournament of Power is just a stepping stone to reach that goal.

    Dragon Ball Super Episode 95: "The Worst! The Most Evil! Frieza's Rampage!!"  Review

    For all the good in the episode, there is one minor, negative stand-out. Unfortunately, it’s Goku. Again he gets the short end of things, being depicted rather poorly during one scene. When questioned why Frieza was even allowed to do all this, Goku comments that he forgot how evil Frieza was. This has always been a thing with Goku, that he is quick to forgive and try to be friendly with people, but it strikes me as beyond absurd that he would treat Frieza the same way, particularly after everything the two of them have been through. Although it was only a small thing this week, Goku’s depiction in Super has wavered in a number of episodes and it’s about time it stopped.

    This link directs to a retail affiliate. IGN may receive a commission from your purchase.

    The Verdict

    Episode 95 delivers an amazing treat as we get to see a showcase of evil power. Frieza makes it clear this week that he means to kill everyone he can and has no interest in holding back. His depiction is nearly perfect as the art does a great job in showcasing his malicious attitude and powers. Even with a truly absurd moment from Goku, Episode 95 makes for a great lead into the Tournament of Power.

    Acclaimed Gothic Horror RPG Darkest Dungeon's First Expansion Released

    Darkest Dungeon, the gothic horror RPG from Red Hook Studios, has released its first DLC expansion. The Crimson Court allows players to jump into a new, parallel campaign, designed to be played alongside the main story.

    The expansion tells the story of the Crimson Curse, which is spreading across the estate and bringing new enemies to familiar regions. It also introduces a new environment called The Courtyard, full of “unique curios, traps, and obstacles, a complete faction of new blood-crazed foes lie in wait, overseen by three distinct boss encounters,” according to the DLC’s description.

    “These slavering enemies and epic encounters will introduce new combat mechanics, testing the limits of your favorite strategies.” In addition to the new campaign and dungeon, The Crimson Court introduces a bunch of new game mechanics too, including:

    • A new hero class–“Awash in blood and delusion, they bear the burden of a thousand lifetimes”
    • A full faction of new enemies
    • 5 new bosses with some of the most complex and devious mechanics yet
    • A new wandering boss: The Fanatic
    • Districts: 10 new buildings to upgrade your Hamlet
    • Massive, sprawling maps with locked doors, prisoner rooms, and progress saves
    • Lore-driven trinket sets for all heroes, with set bonuses

    The Crimson Court DLC is now available on PC for $10, and the original is on sale on Steam right now for $10 too. The original game is available on PlayStation 4 and PS Vita, but there’s no word on when the expansion is coming for those consoles.

    When it was released, critics praised its unique approach to dungeon-crawler gameplay (adding elements of survival horror) and its dark art style. GameSpot reviewer Daniel Starkey called it a “richly satisfying and wonderfully executed masterpiece,” and you can read his full review here.
