Terminator T-800 has an appearance that resembles to its recent portrayal in upcoming live-action movie Terminator: Dark Fate. It makes a similar entry like it did in Terminator 2: Judgment Day when it came to save John Connor.

Confronted by Jax, it asks whether or not he is a Cyborg and then remarks that he will be terminated regardless. Then it basically goes bashing the rival fighter repeatedly and shoot him off with a pump-action shotgun round.

T-800 displays its unique ability to use short-distance portals in a confrontation with Kano and then completely loses skin when Scorpion spews fire on it, revealing a much tougher robotic skeleton underneath synthetic molten flesh.

Upon triggering Krushing Blow, it would shoot player in the guts after hitting you with the weapon and awkwardly show a thumbs up but would grab by the legs in mid-air while mockingly saying "GET OVER HERE!" and finish up.

Back then they were mad because of valid concerns and now things are slowly unfolding as Gearbox has apparently released a rushed product within a set release window that remains half-baked, rather than taking time and fixing it.

NBA 2K20 Review-Bombed on Metacritic and Steam

Riddled with micro-transactions and other issues, NBA 2K20 is getting review-bombed on Metacritic and Steam.

Same game wrapped in new package each year, basically that's how most of the sports genre titles operate in general. These games are annually put out in stores with noting more than a few minor updates and a full-priced tag.

Even though heavily panned by fans, sports-title selling companies like developer Visual Concepts and publisher 2K Games will shamelessly put out new NBA 2K installments each year that is just few roster updates and some slight changes.

Considering how sports titles are one of the most money generating machines in video game industry, developers should get back to fixing these major issues of NBA 2K20 that are angering fans on all platforms as soon as possible.

In an attempt to relive the magic of Sega Genesis and Super Nintendo consoles, developer Digital Eclipse and publisher Nighthawk Interactive teamed up to bring back these retro classics for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

Both Disney's Aladdin and The Lion King will feature their respective Game Boy, SEGA Genesis and Super Game Boy version within the package with the latter also having a Super Nintendo version included to its game list.

Similarly, NES port for Lion King is getting cut out from the upcoming compilation even though both of these excluded versions are arguably one of their most popular releases and we believe this is solely because of some legal issues.

According to official press release, they are adding a "Final Cut" version for Disney's Aladdin and a Trade Show Demo version that has never been released for public since 1993 but sadly, no report for a SNES version is mentioned.

Not only you can enjoy these retro masterpieces in 1080p resolution enhancements, there are some newly added amazing features like Watch Mode to skip certain playthroughs or using Rewind to go back few steps to course correct.

Aside from updated graphics and customizable controls, an art gallery full of behind-the-scenes assets as bonus content. Nighthawk Interactive has put enough effort to compile these fan-favorite gems into one that offers replay value.

All major console versions are confirmed to get physical release but PC port is getting a Steam launch only. There were DRM-free versions of these two Disney classics for PC platform available at GOG.com but were removed earlier in 2019.

Disney's Aladdin and The Lion King collection will be sold for $29.99 only at digital outlets and retail stores from October 29, 2019. We are wondering when someone will try to remake Goof Troop and The Jungle Book for current platforms!

Based on popular Greek myth, players assume the role of immortal prince of Underworld, Zagreus to hack and slash your way out of his clutches. During this quest, he receives powerful Boons from Olympian deities to boost his abilities.

Though you have support from Mount Olympus, making it out of Hell will be still quite hard even with magic powers that Zag wields. You would come across enemies to challenge your skills but you can pet the Hell dog, Cerberus to relieve stress.

Early Access games often heavily rely on player support and therefore, Supergiant Games will giveaway digital copy of original soundtracks of the game as complimentary bonus to anyone who will purchase it before October 15.

Supergiant has been adding new enemies, levels, weapons and more with regular monthly content updates from very beginning. Still in development, Hades is currently expecting to leave Early Access by second half of 2020.
