20 Indian Shows That Took More Than Just ‘Inspiration’ From Foreign TV Series – ScoopWhoop

If you think about it, Bollywood adapts Hollywood movies in order to make it more cringy and dramatic. And sometimes (rarely), Hollywood also adapts concepts from Bollywood.But, there are certain Hollywood classics that India needs to stay away from and vice-versa.

Here are some of the worst 'inspirations' (read: gandi copies) that Indian shows have taken from the west only to ruin it for us:

1. Hello Friends from F.R.I.E.N.D.S

Even with a strong comic cast including Cyrus Broacha, Maria Goretti and Nikhil Chinnappa, the Indian take on our favourite American sitcom was like Rachel's Beef Triffle, disappointing and tasteless.

2.Sumit Sambhal Lega from Everybody Loves Raymond

Another Indian show that couldn't live up to the humour, glory or drama of the popular American sitcom, Everybody Loves Raymond.

3. Jassi Jaissi Koi Nahin from Ugly Betty

Even though the Mona Singh starrer Jassi Jaissi Koi Nahin was inspired by the American drama Ugly Betty, technically both of these shows were actually "inspired" from the Colombian telenovela Yo soy Betty, la fea!

4. Four More Shots Please! from Sex And The City

What's so Sex And The City about four BFFs trying to figure out their lives as they question the society? Well, Four More Shots Please! didn't even care to change the personality, professions or the issues faced by the characters from the evergreen American comedy-drama.

5. Comedy Nights With Kapil fromThe Kumars at No. 42

The Kumars at No. 42 is a British comedy that has won various international awards, including Emmy and Peabody. Unfortunately, the concept and most of the characters from Kapil's show are "borrowed" from this British comedy.

6.Karishma Ka Karishma from Small Wonder

Honestly, as a 90's kid who grew up watching this adorable robot girl, I was disappointed and a little heartbroken to find out that the show was "inspired" by the American science fiction sitcom, Small Wonder. And once I started watching the original show, there was no going back.

7.Jeannie Aur Juju from IDream of Jeannie

Watching Gopi Bahu wash a laptop was more entertaining and less cringy than trying to sit through an episode of Jeannie Aur Juju. Also if you have seen the original show you'd know that nobody can play Jeannie like Barbara Eden does.

8. The Office from The Office

A British show that was beautifully adapted as a beloved American drama which gave us one of the best bosses of all time, turned out to be a disaster when Indians decided to come up with their own version of The Office. I'd rather go to my actual office than to spend my weekends trying to watch the Indian Office.

9.Suite Life of Karan And Kabir from Suite Life Of Zack & Cody

How to ruin your fun-filled childhood in 20 minutes? Watch an episode of the horribly adapted, monotonously bland Indian version of The Suite Life Of Zack & Cody.

10.Kumkum Bhagya from Sense & Sensibility

An Indian soap opera that is inspired by Jane Austin's novel and mini-series. The story revolves around the life of sisters in a matriarchal setting. Even with a hopeful plot, the show, however, failed to distinguish itself from all the other saas-bahu soap operas onscreen.

11. Powder from The Wire

Powder,a crime drama series was curated by Anurag Kashyap and inspired as an Indian adaptation ofAmerican show The Wire. However, if compared to the original series, it didn't manage to capture even one-third of whatThe Wire was.

12.Yudh from The Boss

Even with an amazing star cast which included,Amitabh Bachchan in the lead and Kay Kay Menon, Sarika and Nawazuddin Siddiqui in supporting roles, Yudh could not live up to the American drama, Boss and was a wrap after 20-something episodes.

13.Ek Hasina Thi from Revenge

Durga's brain games and manipulations in order to attain revenge wasn't as great as the original America-crime-thriller, Revenge,and therefore could not sustain for more than a span of eight months.

14. Pyaar Ki Yeh Ek Kahaani was a mixtureof Twilight and The Vampire Diaries

An ordinary girl falls in love with a vampire and they fight for their forbidden love. Even though this sounds like its either straight out of Twilight or The Vampire Diaries, it is not. Pyaar Ki Yeh Ek Kahaani did grace us with our teenage crush Vivian Dsena but his glow in the dark vampire teeth were too cringy to not laugh.

15. Dil Mil Gayyefrom Grey's Anatomy

Sanjivani hospital filled with young residents who are trying to juggle between their blooming careers and their budding romances might have looked like a dream back in your teenage years if you didn't watch Grey's Anatomy. But if you did, you'd know how disappointingDill Mill Gayye really was.

16.Reporters from The Newsroom

A producer and a news anchor who are chasing the right stories to save the sinking ship of journalism in Reporters didn't do any justice to the politically acclaimed, American drama The Newsroom that it was adapted from.

17.Sanjivani from ER

The long-running American medical drama ER starring George Clooney inspired one of India's first medic-dramas,Sanjivani. Even though, watching the cast dressed in scrubs was a breath of fresh air from all those saas-bahu soap operas, we really cannot compare it to the original series.

18. Meri Aashiqui Tum Se Hi fromWuthering Heights

Jokes apart, the basic plotline of this Ekta Kapoor production was inspired byEmily Bront's classic literary work and famous British drama Wuthering Heights. However,somewhere between the plot twists, infusing additional drama, they ended up losing the main storyline.

19.Tedi Medi Family from The Middle

The desi version of a heartfelt American family sitcom The Middle was a huge disappointment in terms of its educational humour, scripting and shaping the eccentric characters.

20. Best Of Luck Nikki From Good Luck Charlie

Best of luck to whoever is watching the Indian adaptation of the Disney family sitcom,Good Luck Charlie. Hope you don't forget to record your reactions!

Which Hindi show "inspired" from the west do you like to cringe-binge?

20 Indian Shows That Took More Than Just 'Inspiration' From Foreign TV Series - ScoopWhoop

STAFF OPINION: Hop in, loser. We’re warping our sense of reality – The Beacon

Here we are, stuck in our homes yet again, staring at our screens as we merely cross days off the calendar, hoping our way of life may return to how it once was. The Chicago Tribune put it best in a tweet that was truly ahead of its time, reminding us that while we work quickly and diligently, the slow trudge towards mortality continues unabated. We cannot physically escape it; the specter of death [...] remains a constant [on the horizon] today, next week, forever. It is this paradoxical permanence, this utter waste of the prime years of my life that I will never get back, that I loathe.

As I sit between the four walls of my existence, I cant help but seek a change of pace, a change of perspective. Sure, I crave an escape to some extent, but I know that there is not an escape to be had. Instead, more than anything, I crave a fresh perspective on life that will help me comprehend and make peace with the insurmountable circumstances before us. For this, I turn to my steadfast companion: video games.

The digital realities of perspective-based first person puzzle games, specifically Portal and Superliminal, come to mind as good candidates. Remember: anyone (and I mean anyone) can play games. You absolutely dont need to trade your personal hygiene and social life for RGB keyboards and Gamer Girl Bathwater. All you really need is a good attitude and a computer that satisfies the minimum system requirements (although most computers already do).

(Full disclosure: I am not affiliated in any way with Steam, Valve, or Pillow Castle Games. I bought each of these games with my own money and played them on my own time. I simply enjoy video games.)

The Portal series are physics-based first-person puzzle games wherein you, the player, use the Aperture Science Handheld Portal Device (Portalgun) and Long Fall Boots to place and control two connected portals, one blue and one orange. Regardless of where these portals are placed, objects can be passed into one and out of the other (and vice versa) while conserving energy.

Ez clap as the gamers say, right? Well, no.

You are required to outsmart sentient super-A.I., GLaDOS, while navigating a series of enrichment chambers (levels) of increasing difficulty. For an example of this, follow this link.

Portal and Portal 2 force you to think unconventionally, deviating from reality as you manipulate space-time for your own benefit. Rather than approaching obstacles with a traditional, reality-based approach that most platform/puzzle games require (think Super Mario) wherein players are constrained by jump height, jump duration, space, and hostile characters, Portal players must take into account all of the aforementioned constraints while taking the unique game mechanics of the Portal franchise in stride. It is no longer a game of how high can I jump, but rather how can I build up enough potential energy to leap this great chasm and not experience rapid, unplanned disassembly (i.e. death) on the other side oh and also dodge that robot that is trying to kill me?

Superliminal feels like a spa day in comparison. Some of that is thanks to the soft jazz soundtrack but much of it is due to the environment which you navigate. Gone are the harsh, surgically-clean testing chambers of Aperture Science, replaced with the warm, lush feeling of an expansive early 2000s hotel.

Superliminal is a completely different animal. When starting a new game, prospective players are met with a screen that warns of repeated flashing lights (okay, nothing too out of the ordinary here) and then, out of left field, warns that some players have reported experiencing dissociation and/or derealization while playing. Bruh.

While Portal plops you right back into your high school physics class, Superliminal hurls you towards a psychology class with a professor that talks themselves in circles and has a secret love affair with philosophy. Nothing about this game makes sense. The game is commentated by Dr. Glenn Pierce, the doctor who created and oversees your Somnasculpt therapy. Your dream therapy session soon goes sideways and you must escape the many layers of dream state in order to wake up.

The primary game mechanic operates on the principle of constant object size relative to location and forced perspective. What the f*** is this guy on about? I hear you asking. Okay, well think of it this way: If theres a box 50ft away from you (no matter the size of the box), it will appear to be larger when you are 1ft away from it compared to when you are 50ft away from it. In reality, that object never changes size, but simply appears to change size. In Superliminal, the objects actually change sizes, which you use to your advantage to navigate a dream world and escape.

There are no enemies in this game; only obstacles. Poggers! I hear you say. No. This game is unsettling. You are utterly alone in this dream state and yet, somehow, I have never felt so scared, confused, alone and hunted simultaneously while playing a video game. There were times while playing this game that I had to stop playing because my fight or flight had kicked in and every hair on my body was standing on end. The entire game is one long, unrelenting trip to the uncanny valley.

It is difficult to shake this type of problem solving mindset even after putting the game down for a few days, and it resurges especially strong when playing other games. These games stand in stark contrast with the other first-person games that dominate the market like Call of Duty and Fortnite, whose metas narrate a shoot-first-think-later run-and-gun approach. Rather than capturing your attention through bright flashes and intense action, games like Portal and Superliminal command your attention through slow, methodical changes in the environment at hand.

And thats exactly what the best video games should do: envelop you, making you temporarily lose touch with reality as you immerse yourself with the newfound rules of the digital world you find yourself in. It is this time away from real life that makes you come away from your digital experience with a greater appreciation of the real world around you, a welcomed addition to the Groundhog Day-esque feeling of quarantine life and online school.

I urge you to play these games. Theyre cheap, about $10-$20 per game, and they play fast. Each can easily be completed in a single sitting and each is designed to be played that way. Think of it as an interactive movie. You probably sat through all those Marvel movies and then Endgame, so dont even complain about sitting and looking at a screen for hours on end. I know you have it in you. (Plus, what else are you gonna do? Watch paint dry? You probably already did that last week.) Each game changes your perception of reality ever so slightly, which cumulatively leads to a sense of refreshed perspective on the world, something we could all use these days.

Rez and Tetris Effect Producer Tetsuya Mizuguchi Working on a "New Adventure with Synesthesia" with Enhance Games – Niche Gamer

Tetsuya Mizuguchi- the producer of Tetris Effect, Child of Eden, Rezand more- has announced he is working on a new game with Enhance Games; a new adventure with synesthesia.

Replying to a fan on Twitter, Mizuguchi discussedRezs 19th anniversary; the game launching on November 22nd, 2001. Thanks to everyone who played Rez, Child of Eden and Rez Infinite, Mizuguchi stated. I and @enhance_exp is moving forward to the new project totally new adventure with synesthesia.

Enhance Games are the publisher ofTetris Effect, a game Mizuguchi provided the concept for along with producing. Among the works previously stated, Mizuguchi also worked as a producer on the Luminesseries, along withMeteosandSpace Channel 5.

While Mizuguchis works have focused on music-puzzle games, he has also been the producer on a hack and slash game (Ninety Nine Nights), and several racing games (Sega Rally Championship, Manx TT Superbike, and Sega Rally 2). As such, when Mizuguchi says adventure,he may very well be hinting at the games genre.

No matter the case, the game is sure to be closely linked to its music. Curiously, the tweet Mizuguchi made in Japanese made no mention of a new game, other than I will do my best to make a good presentation(translation: Google Translate) regarding the games 20th anniversary.

We will keep you informed as we learn more.

Mourinho: When the puzzle around him is perfect, Kane is fantastic – AS English

Jose Mourinho hailed Harry Kane and said the Tottenham star was at his best "when the puzzle around him is perfect".

Kane provided his ninth assist of the Premier League season to go with seven goals during Spurs' 2-0 win over Manchester City on Saturday.

The forward had just eight assists in his previous three league campaigns combined (94 games), but set up Giovani Lo Celso's goal, which doubled Tottenham's lead following Son Heung-min's opener.

Mourinho lauded Kane, who helped Spurs win back-to-back league games against City for the first time since a run of three between September 2015 and October 2016.

"He's a fantastic player. When the puzzle around him is perfect for him he's a fantastic player," the Spurs head coach told a news conference.

"Maybe he will be responsible for you and fans and people that love football, maybe he will change the way people look to a striker.

"He is fantastic and he very much represents the spirit of the team."

Tottenham ended a day top of the Premier League table for the first time since August 2014.

But Mourinho was unfazed as he tried to keep Spurs focused, with Leicester City able to return to the top if they beat Liverpool on Sunday.

"I prefer to be top of the league than second, third or fourth, but it's not an obsession. It's not a problem for me if Leicester wins and goes top of the league. It's not a problem at all," he said.

"I just want to win my game which is what we keep saying since the beginning of the season. We want to win the next match. I don't care about the table, I don't care about the opponents, about the competition.I want to win the next match and go to every game with the players believing and organised in a way that we can beat that opponent.

"We are a process. This team is a process in place. Good signs of evolution at every level. We are very happy with that of course but I don't care too much about the table.It's just a good feeling to go home and obviously be top of the league is a good feeling."

Quick Trip to a Store and Back – The New York Times

MONDAY PUZZLE So, an Australian wind instrument, a system of underwater mountains and a wedding attendant walk into a bar and

Sorry, I was just stalling. I needed some extra time to figure out this Monday theme by Stanley Newman. It wasnt immediately apparent, but thankfully, there is a revealer at 62D to help get us in the door.

16A/17A. I liked the twin clue White gemstone for both OPAL and PEARL.

36A. Most people probably know O RINGS as those rubber gaskets, but I remember a time during the late-1970s to early 80s when they were worn as jewelry. I dont know if the singer Madonna started the trend but she definitely made them famous.

Mr. Newman offers us three theme entries that each contain the letters ID twice. For example, the Australian wind instrument at 18A is DIDGERIDOO.

And why are we being asked for two forms of ID? Because apparently, one is not good enough not that I am bitter.

Interesting side note: The entry BRIDESMAID has not appeared in The New York Times Crossword since 1954.

Most of the ideas for the crosswords I make come from a twisty interpretation of everyday things I see, read or hear. The inspiration for todays was just like that seeing two IDs required in a newspaper article. With the assistance of the very constructor-useful onelook.com, I selected the three most lively theme answers available. (Sorry, but ETHIDIUM BROMIDE didnt make the cut.)

While Monday grids with all-easy answers are most easily accomplished with a closed-off grid of maximum answer count (78), I wanted something more intricate for Will, The Times and you. So, wanting to have the IDS revealer as the last Down answer, and opening up the grid as much as this-human-ly possible, I managed to successfully complete todays 74-answer diagram. The 10 Down answers of more than seven letters were a little tricky to accomplish, necessitating the one answer that Id rather not have used (40-Downs NAES), but Will didnt mind it and I hope you didnt either.

For any early-week crossword I make for The Times, the cluing is a tug-of-war challenge. For any puzzle for Will, I always check the database of Times clues, striving for as many new clues as possible. The extra challenge comes from avoiding trickery and ambiguity at the same time.

Will kept the essence of somewhat more than half of my clues; the changed ones were typically made easier with a better-known fact, such as HEIDI as a Project Runway host rather than Mrs. Ted Cruz.

And thats all I have to say about that.

Almost finished solving but need a bit more help? Weve got you covered.

Warning: There be spoilers ahead, but subscribers can take a peek at the answer key.

‘Call of Duty Mobile’ & ‘Among Us’ Will Fight For The Title of Best Mobile Game 2020 – Digital Information World

The nominees for The Game Awards 2020 is out and not to ones surprise, it is Activision's Call of Duty that has grabbed a spot in the Best Mobile Game category. However, there is also tough competition coming in as Innersloths breakout title Among Us is also nominated for the similar category.

There are also more popular titles like The Last of Us Part 2, Genshin Impact, and Raji: An Ancient Epic in their respective categories and it would be really interesting to see who wins!

For a brief history, Call of Duty Mobile has already won the title of Best Mobile Game back in 2019. Hence, their inclusion in the nominees was pretty obvious but them winning might just become difficult this time as the indie title Among Us has grabbed great attention of mobile gamers in the past few months.

There are also Genshin Impact, Legends of Runeterra, and Pokemon Cafe Mix nominated to go head to head against COD Mobile and Among Us in the similar most popular category.

Genshin Impact is also another game that has enjoyed immense success in little time as the Chinese Video game developer, miHoYo, released it recently on September 28, 2020, with millions of players already hooked to the game. If you havent had the chance to try it then its an action role-playing game that you can play for free and its available on all popular platforms including PS4, Windows, Switch, Android, and iOS.

With that, Legends of Runeterra is another free-to-play digital collectible card game made by the minds behind Valorant and League of Legends - Riot Games and rolled it out on April 2019 for Windows, Android, and iOS.

The last on the list is Pokemon Cafe Mix (a free puzzle game) which is published by everyones favorite Nintendo and The Pokemon Company. Its available for gamers on all platforms whether they have Nintendo Switch, an Android, or iOS device.

Apart from these all five Best Mobile Game nominees of The Game Awards 2020, there is The Last of Us Part II, Animal Crossing: New Horizons, Ghost Of Tsushima, Doom Eternal, Final Fantasy VII Remake, and Hades which would be battling out to win the title of Game of The Year.

The Greatest Google Stadia Video games for 2020 – The Shepherd of the Hills Gazette

Google Stadia takes a quality over quantity approach to its library of games. There arent a lot of titles available though thats rapidly been changing over the past few months but the few that are available are excellent. From massive RPGs likeRed Dead Redemption 2to indie horror adventures like Gylt,Google Stadia has a little something for everyone. Here are the best Google Stadia games you should start playing first.

Most of the games on our list cost some money, even if youre a Stadia Pro subscriber. There are a few, however, that are available for free through a Pro membership, so weve marked those games with a pro tag.

Destiny 2 is the perfect game for Google Stadia for one reason: Cross-save support. Although Destiny 2 is a great game in its own right, the fact that you can play on multiple systems or transfer your save from another system greases the Google Stadia transition wheel. Plus, Destiny 2 is perfect for some quick battles while youre on the go. It launched with Google Stadia as the standout title on the platform, and to this day,Destiny 2heads the Pro roster.

Youll need Pro to play it, though.Destiny 2is free on all other platforms, but not Google Stadia. If youre just using the Base subscription, the only way to playDestiny 2is by purchasing one of the expansions. That turns what is otherwise one of the best free-to-play games into a $25 game, minimum. Still, Stadia Pro subscribers can download and playDestiny2,including all of its expansions.

Darksiders Genesis is the fourth entry in the long-running Darksiders series, but unlike the previous three games, it ditches the third-person beat em up style. Instead, Genesis is more akin to something like Diablo or Torchlight, with an isometric point of view and action RPG mechanics.

It was actually developed by Airship Syndicate, the same studio that developed the excellent Battle Chasers: Nightwar. In it, you can switch back and forth between the fourth Horseman of the Apocalypse, Strife, and his brother, War. Jumping back and forth allows you to approach combat in a variety of different ways, breaking up the often monotonous button mashing of other action RPGs.

Borderlands 3 is, for the most part, just another Borderlands game. Although thats a selling point in its own right, the third entry in Gearboxs humorous FPS-RPG feels like more of the same. Still, there are some small improvements that bring Borderlands into a modern light. With the addition of climbing ledges youre close to and a sliding mechanic similar to Apex Legends, the game feels more fast-paced than ever.

In previous games, the best approach was usually to stay far back and pick off a few key enemies before jumping into the battle. Borderlands 3, however, takes a lot of notes from the 2016 reboot of Doom. Combat happens in open arenas, with you in the center. With your new move set in tow, youre easily able to jump and dash your way around enemies, leading to much more visceral combat.

Gylt is the first and only Google Stadia exclusive on our list. Its a puzzle game developed by the small Spanish studio Tequila Works, who also created Deadlight and Rime. Like previous Tequila games, Gylt is a story-driven game with puzzle elements, though it dives deeper into the horror aspect of the studios previous titles.

You play as Sally, a young girl searching for her lost friend Emily. On your journey, youll encounter myriad different devilish creatures to sneak past. If, however, youre caught in their eyesight, you can use your flashlight to fight off the beasts. Gylt is a short game without much in the way of mechanics, but the story and atmosphere are enough to make it an enjoyable Stadia title.

Assassins Creed has a tumultuous history. The first few entries in the series were some of the best to come out of Ubisoft, but the onslaught of new titles, spinoffs, and collections quickly grew stale. Odyssey breaks the tradition, however, with more RPG mechanics than previous titles, a larger open world, and an engaging story.

Odyssey may be the only Assassins Creed game on Stadia, but thats not why were including it. Its one of the best games in the series, expanding the stealth-action focus of previous titles to include dialogue choices, branching quests, and multiple endings. Outside of the mechanics, Odyssey also goes where the series has never gone: Ancient Greece. You play as a mercenary caught in the middle of a fictional war between Sparta and Athens. There are two mercenaries you can play as, but we recommend playing through the game as Kassandra.

2016sDoomis an excellent game, butDoom Eternalis simply better. Its a natural evolution for the rebooted series, fit with more guns, tighter combat, and more robust mechanics. More than that, though,Doom Eternalrecognizes that most players have played the first game. Its not the same retread through hell: Doom Eternalis something completely different.

Part of that comes from the setting (Eternaltakes place on Earth, not in hell). The main difference comes from combat, though. Although just a visceral as Doom,Eternaltasks you with controlling your resources to a far greater degree. Youll need to use the chainsaw to pick up ammo and score glory kills to regain health. Combined with the verticality of combat arenas, Doom Eternalsends you flying around enemies, forcing you to use every tool at your disposal to take them down.

Read our Doom Eternalreview

Octopath Travelerhas a strange history. It was originally released exclusively for Nintendo Switch, but Square Enix eventually ported the game to PC. Now, despite not being available on Xbox One or PS4, the game joins the rapidly growing lineup of Google Stadia. Octopath Traveleris a 16-bit era JRPG re-imagined through nostalgia goggles. The art style is stunning, maintaining the pixel art aesthetic while elevating the visuals for a modern audience.

Square Enix elevated the gameplay, too. Battles are still turn-based, with random encounters, and youll still spend most of your time going from town to town. However, Octopath Traveleradopts a similar combat system asBravelyDefault,where your team can unleash multiple attacks in the same turn. Combined with the weaknesses system,Octopath Travelers combat encounters are engrossing, as you balance risk and reward with each choice.

Final Fantasy XV gets a lot of flack for being stuck in development hell for so many years, but despite the long wait, it remains one of the best Final Fantasy games around. If nothing else, seeing the stunning landscapes and handcrafted character models on your phone or laptop is a sight to behold.

You take the role of Prince Noctis in the game, who sets off on a road trip with his three friends to meet his wife-to-be, Lady Lunafreya. Disaster strikes, however, when Noctis home of Insomnia is attacked and his father killed. Now, miles and miles away from the kingdom Noctis must lead, your job is to fight the threat to your homeland and cement yourself as king.

Read our full Final Fantasy XVreview

Metro Exodus is the third entry in Deep Silvers post-apocalyptic FPS series. Like the previous titles, you play as Artyom in Exodus, a survivor of the nuclear war in Russia who has joined a group of survivors in the Moscow Metro.

Discontent with the leadership inside the Metro, Artyom sets off on the Aurora, one of the few functioning trains left, to prove that other survivors exist. Like other Metro games, Exodus has a lot of twists and plenty of choices, which lead to vastly different endings.

Read our full Metro Exodusreview

Mortal Kombat 11 seems like more of the same, and for the most part, it is. However, its the third Mortal Kombat game developed by NetherRealm Studios, who also created the two Injustice games. As is the case with previous NetherRealm games, Mortal Kombat 11 introduces new mechanics to the time-tested fighting formula.

The two new additions are Fatal Blows and Krushing Blows. The former allow you to unleash a massive amount of damage to your opponent if your health drops below 30%. Krushing Blows, on the other hand, are cinematic versions of a characters special moves, requiring specific button inputs and circumstances to occur.

Red Dead Redemption 2 is a jaw-droppingly massive game. Like the previous entry in the series and other Rockstar titles, RDR2 is an open-world game with sandbox elements. Theres a main story and various side quests, all of which are interesting. However, youre also free to explore, hunt, loot, and camp on your own time.

RDR2 is actually a prequel, starting 12 years before the events of the original game. In it, you play as Arthur Morgan, a high-ranking thief part of the Van der Linde gang, which John Marston, the protagonist of Red Dead Redemption, is also a part of. RDR2 explains the events leading up to the 2010 entry, but instead of forcing you to play as Marston again, the game shows a different perspective through the eyes of Arthur Morgan.

Kine is a weird game for Google to include in its Stadia roster, since its developed by only a single person: Gwen Frey. Its not a large game, both in terms of length and popularity, but it deserves a lot more attention than its been given. Throughout the game, you play as three different machines, each of which are trying to be a musician.

In terms of mechanics, Kine is a 3D puzzle game. Controlling one of the machines, youll need to flip your way around the environment to see the best path to take to make it to the end. Gameplay-wise, its simple. However, the barebones mechanics are made up for with a gorgeous hand-drawn art style and fantastic music.

Thumper is weird but in the best way possible. Its a rhythm game where you play as a metallic beetle, hurling toward something at breakneck speed. Unlike other rhythm titles, however, Thumper isnt about hitting the beats of popular songs. Instead, it features original, hellish music with certain themes. As you progress through each stage, those themes become more involved, building toward a boss battle that looks like it was ripped straight out of Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas.

Mechanically, there are only a handful of moves you can perform in Thumper. You can jump to avoid obstacles, slam to hit notes, and lean to hit curves in the track. These elements create a sound that mirrors the themes of the soundtrack, creating a unique call-and-response rhythm.

All three of the Tomb Raider reboot games are on Stadia, but Rise of the Tomb Raider is the best. Unlike 2013s Tomb Raider, which was more of an origin story for Lara Croft than an actual Tomb Raider game, Rise fully embraces the cinematic action the series is known for. Set a year after the first game, you play as a PTSD-ridden Lara Croft, who sets off on an adventure to explain the supernatural events she experienced in the first entry.

Rise hits a sweet spot in the series. Expanding upon Tomb Raider in terms of mechanics, story, and scope, the game feels more robust in just about every way. However, its follow-up, Shadow of the Tomb Raider, feels like more of the same. If youre a fan of the series, we recommend playing all three. For those just wanting to dip their toes in, however, Rise is the best place to start.

Trials Rising is the latest in Ubisofts popular physics-based cycle racer series, adding even more bikes, tracks, and secrets to the two-decade-old franchise. If youre new, Trials puts you in the shoes of a motorcycle racer, as you complete short races with deadly obstacles. The camera isnt behind your rider, however. Instead, you see them from the side, using leaning and physics to build up momentum as the race goes along.

Countless mobile games have copied the formula, but Trials did it first, and Rising shows how two decades of experience can pay off. Although Rising has microtransactions a feature the game was rightly berated for upon launch theres enough content out of the gate for dozens of hours of gameplay.

Celesteperfects the art of balancing challenge with reward. Its a knuckle-busting 2D platformer in the vein ofSuper Meat BoyandShovel Knightbut takes itself much more seriously. You play as Madeline, a young girl riddled with anxiety and self-doubt. On a journey of self-discovery, Madeline decides to climb Celeste mountain, where she encounters demons internal and external. Celesteis a challenging game, but its one that everyone should play. Its one thing for a game to brood in the corner like a spoiled child, but thats not whatCelestedoes. It offers a compelling narrative that gets right to the edge of being on the nose but never goes past that line.

The story sticks out, butCelesteis still a challenging platformer, first and foremost. Tone is what sets it above its counterparts. As a character, Madeline faces a challenge she can just barely overcome, and in the same way, Celestetasks you with challenges you can just barely overcome. Its a tough game, but not an unfair one. The controls are ultra-tight, much more so than other platformers, giving you precise control over how Madeline jumps and dashes. With that,Celesteis less about blindly failing screens and more about learning the exact movement to get past them.

Superhot, a shooter-style game, offers a one-of-a-kind angle thanks to its time-based mechanic. At first glance, this game may appear complicated to a first-time player, but its simple if you stay focused on the fact that time only moves when you do. Your job is to use various items and guns around you to finish the level while avoiding enemies and their projectiles.

While Superhots gameplay is impressive on its own, the over-the-top story behind it all takes it to a new level. While we wont spoil anything for you, know that enough is going on to keep you engaged even beyond shooting bouts.

Superhots original build took one week during a game jam, which makes its appearance on a large platform like Stadia all the more impressive. Of course, the Superhot Team spent two more years designing the full game via Kickstarter.

Today, the Superhot series has three games (but only the first is available on Google Stadia for now). If youre feeling nostalgic, the original game jam version is available in your browser. Our only caution is that it has some frame rate issues that can impact your overall enjoyment of the game.

Impact of Covid 19 On Augmented Reality Gaming Market 2020 Industry Challenges Business Overview And Forecast Research Study 2026 - The Market Feed

Everything Else Leaked in the Capcom Hack | Game Rant – GameRant

Capcom was recently the victim of a major ransomware cyberattack that saw the personal information of its employees stolen, along with its video game plans. Capcom has rightfully refused to give in to ransom demands, though the attackers have responded by leaking many of the company's upcoming video game projects.

Initially, the hackers leaked Capcom's plans for 2021, which includes things like aResident Evil 8 demo,Ace Attorney localizations, and some other things. But now a leaked document has revealed Capcom's plans for the next four years, which include a wide-range of games from its various franchises.

RELATED: Rumor: Capcom Has Major Remakes in Development

Here is everything else that has been leaked by the big Capcom hack.

Capcom has not been shy about its love of pumping out remakes and remasters of its games. The company has outright said in the past that video game remakes will be a key component of its sales strategy, and it has held true to that claim. There have been a number of Capcom remakes released in recent years, and if the information from the big Capcom leak is accurate, then there will likely be even more remakes in store for fans.

Apparently, the first big Capcom remake fans can look forward toisthe highly-anticipatedResident Evil 4 remake. TheResident Evil 4 remake was leaked months ago by reliable industry insiders, and it's aiming for a Q4 2022 release. What exactly theResident Evil 4 remake will entail remains to be seen, but fans will likely find out more some time after Capcom launchesResident Evil 8, itself due for release within the first half of 2021.

WhileResident Evil 4 may be the most high-profile Capcom remake in the pipeline, the company is said to have a couple more in store. In Q2 of 2024, Capcom plans on releasing aFinal Fight remake, which would mark the first entry in its beat 'em up franchise since 2006'sFinal Fight: Streetwise, which was panned by critics at the time of its release. It's unclear if thisFinal Fight remake will be a new version of the original beat 'em up with improved visuals, or if it will be a full-blown remake in the vein of theResident Evil remakes.

And finally, the last remake in Capcom's development pipeline is aPower Stone remake, due for release Q3 of 2024.Power Stone is a unique arena fighting game that has developed a cult following among Capcom fans. The company previously remadePower Stone and its sequel for Sony's PSP handheld, so it's definitely not out of the question for it to do so again for modern gaming platforms.

SinceResident Evil is Capcom's flagship video game franchise, it's not exactly surprising to discover that the company has more than theResident Evil 4 remake in development. According to the leak, a project known asResident Evil Outrage is set to launch Q4 of 2021, meaning fans of the survival-horror franchise could very well have two new releases coming next year. What exactlyResident Evil Outrage is remains to be seen, and it's almost certainly going by a working title, but a previous leak may shed more light on the matter.

The initial Capcom leak revealed that the company has aResident Evil 8-based multiplayer game in development, and that it's some kind of battle royale experience. MaybeResident Evil Outrage and the multiplayer project are the same thing, though that's just speculation at this time.

Meanwhile, theResident Evil 4 remake is supposedly coming Q4 of 2022, with something calledBiohazard Apocalypse aiming for launch Q3 of 2023. Again, that is most likely a working title for a newResident Evil game, though further details are unavailable at the time of this writing.

And finally,Resident Evil Hank (yet again, a working title) will be looking to launch Q4 of 2024. Assuming Capcom is able to stick to this schedule and there aren't any major delays or anything like that,Resident Evil fans can look forward to at least one new game release in the series every year for the next four years. It definitely seems as though Capcom is turningResident Evil into an annual franchise again, though hopefully the games play differently enough that franchise fatigue doesn't start to set in.

Some of the more interesting games named in the big Capcom leak are sequels to existing franchises, including some sequels that fans have been a long time to play. This includesDragon's Dogma 2, set to launch Q2 of 2022.Dragon's Dogma 2 has been hinted at in the past, and so it's always seemed like just a matter of time before the game would materialize. With the power of the new consoles at its disposal, Capcom could really do something impressive withDragon's Dogma 2, so here's hoping fans don't have to wait too much longer to see it in action.

There's alsoMega Man Match, set to launch Q3 of 2022. Like most of the other games on the list, there aren't many details about whatMega Man Match actually is. Its name is probably just a working title, but it could also be an indication of what fans can expect from the project, gameplay-wise. For instance,Mega Man Match may be a versus multiplayer game of some description, or alternatively, it could be a match-3 puzzle game for mobile devices. It could also be a traditionalMega Man game that just has a misleading working title. Again, until Capcom decides to share more information, all fans can do is speculate.

One of the more surprising sequels listed in the leak is calledOnimusha New Work. Capcom'sOnimusha franchise has been mostly dormant for years, with theOnimusha remaster reportedly not selling all that well. Considering the poor sales of theOnimusha remaster, it's a bit strange that Capcom is supposedly moving forward with development on a new game in the series, and not only that, but development must have been going on for some time. After all, the newOnimusha game is said to be coming Q4 of 2022, meaning development is likely well underway.

Capcom's decision to call it "Onimusha New Work" instead of assigning a number to it could be a sign that this game will be a reboot of the franchise. Hopefully the company offers some clarification sooner rather than later so fans don't have to speculate for too long.

And finally, the most high-profile sequel mentioned in the Cacpcom leak isMonster Hunter 6.Monster Hunter World stands as one of Capcom's most successful video games ever, and so it makes sense that the company is being more aggressive withMonster Hunter releases.Monster Hunter Rise is the next game in the series, due for release March 2021, but for now it's only confirmed for the Nintendo Switch. Presumably,Monster Hunter 6 will be releasing on more traditional consoles, and it will be great to see the franchise's iconic creatures rendered with the power of the PS5 and Xbox Series X.

Capcom's main franchises nowadays may beMonster Hunter andResident Evil, but the company'sStreet Fighter series is still quite popular.Street Fighter 5 didn't exactly reach the same heights as its predecessors in terms of critical reception, but Capcom will be looking to come back with a vengeance with the upcomingStreet Fighter 6.

Street Fighter 6 has not been officially announced, but the leak says that Capcom fans can look forward to playing the game Q3 of 2022. And like previousStreet Fighter games, Capcom will be iterating onStreet Fighter 6, releasing new versions of it that will likely include some gameplay tweaks, new features, and roster additions.Super Street Fighter 6 is said to be coming Q4 of 2023, whereasUltra Street Fighter 6 will be coming Q4 of 2024.

What's interesting about this is that, while fans may always assume Capcom has a new version ofStreet Fighter in the works, they don't usually know for sure this far in advance. Since Capcom fans now know thatStreet Fighter 6 has three versions on the way, maybe some of them will skip the initial launch and just wait for the final version in 2024. This would be unfortunate, though otherwise it's hard to see how the other titles mentioned in the leak could negatively impact Capcom's sales.
