Wonder Woman: All the Easter Eggs, References, Cameos and Trivia

Share.

The spirit of the comics lives in the new movie.

The DC Extended Universe just became a bigger and more interesting place thanks to the release of Wonder Woman. Now we know the story of how Diana of Themyscira first ventured into man’s world and helped save humankind from annihilation in the waning days of World War I.

Even though Wonder Woman takes place about 100 years before the events of Batman v Superman and the rest of the DCEU, the film features a number of interesting cameos and connections to the comics for eagle-eyed fans.

But don’t worry if you didn’t catch everything. We’ve put together a slideshow that breaks down all the big cameos and Easter eggs in the movie.

Mass Effect: Andromeda Meant to Do ‘What Mass Effect 1 Promised But Failed to Deliver’

Share.

Exploration was a large focus for Andromeda’s teams but too much time in pre-production let them down.

The original goal for Mass Effect: Andromeda was to go back and deliver on the promise of exploration that came with the first Mass Effect.

A Kotaku story reveals that Bioware’s goals on Andromeda were to find new ways to make the next installment in the popular series distinct and fresh. The team looked at the closing of the Reaper threat and Commander Shepard’s epic as a clean slate to start over and pick a new part of space.

One person who worked on the game stated that, “The goal was to go back to what Mass Effect 1 promised but failed to deliver, which was a game about exploration,” and after achieving what they had wanted from combat and narrative with the previous games, exploration seemed to be the last vestige to improve upon.

Unfortunately, almost all the developers who spoke to Kotaku report that due to so much time spent in pre-production, that in the end after toying with multiple ideas, the bulk of the game came together during the last 18 months of development.

“It really wasn’t until Mac Walters came on board—and that was very much a reaction to the state of the critical path—he was really brought on board to give it direction and get it into shape,” stated one person who worked on the game. “Before that it was quite rudderless.”

Our review points to long hours and empty spaces as one of the downsides to Mass Effect: Andromeda, which could have been caused by these hiccups in production.

No Man’s Sky: Mysterious Cassette Tapes ARG Points to ‘Portal’ Update

Share.

Now you’re thinking with portals.

No Man’s Sky Developer Hello Games has begun sending mysterious packages containing cassette tapes to some of their Reddit moderators.

Each of the tapes currently received is marked as a number out of 16, and so far seven individuals have come forward claiming to own a tape, with five already having uploaded their audio.

The Reddit community is working together to decipher the information in this ARG, and so far has produced that every tape features the word ‘Portal’. This was apparent after spectrographs of the recording revealed a number sequence which when run through a common letter substitution cipher ROT13 and converted from HEX to ASCII revealed the word.

‘Portal’ seems indicative that the next update coming to No Man’s Sky may activate the seemingly dormant portals that are already scattered around the procedurally generated world. This would hopefully add more portability which is something Hello Games also addressed during the last updated

Speculation amongst the forum suggests that the word was included on every tape in case of lost units or people being unable or unwilling to provide their audio files once received. This is, however, potentially only one piece of the puzzle and as more information trickles in we should be able to find more answers about just what Hello Games is teasing with this mysterious ARG.

  • PSVR gets some kind of bundle or price cut to make it appealing, but no slim redesign or new controllers or anything.
