Free PC Game From EA Available Right Now, And It’s A Good One

Dead Space, the acclaimed 2008 sci-fi horror game from the now-defunct developer Visceral Games, is now completely free on PC. It is the newest “On the House” game from publisher Electronic Arts, and you can grab it right here from Origin.
As with the previous On the House titles, once you download Dead Space it is yours to keep forever. The only catch is that EA doesn't say when On the House titles cycle out, so if you're interested, you may want to grab the game right now instead of putting it off until later.
Dead Space was already in the Origin Access free game library on PC, so if you subscribe to that service you have been able to play the game at no cost for a while now. The game was also released on Xbox 360, and it is playable on Xbox One through backwards compatibility. The Xbox 360 edition is in the Xbox One EA Access library.
Dead Space was in fact the very first EA On the House freebie, kicking off the freebie campaign back in 2014. It appears to be the first tit..

Hidden Gems: 5 Games To Be Excited To Play In 2018

Even with something like Anthem being delayed out of 2018, this year still has a ton of big-name games coming–Red Dead Redemption 2, Far Cry 5, a new Battlefield, and perhaps Call of Duty: Black Ops 4. But there are countless other, lesser-known games that are plenty deserving of your attention, too.
In the video above, we've highlighted five such games. One of these, Celeste, is actually already available; the stellar platformer is out now on Switch, PS4, Xbox One, and PC. It's well worth a look–as our Celeste review states, “[Madeline's] tale is delicately told and beautifully illustrated, confidently coalescing with the satisfying, empowering game it lies within. Not bad for a game about climbing a mountain.”
Looking further ahead this year, games like Donut County, Way of the Passive Fist, Wattam, and The Gardens Between look like exciting releases. We've spent time with each of these previously, and the video above dives into what makes each of them notable. ..

Pokemon Go Legendary Week Offers Another Chance To Catch Groudon And More

With the second Pokemon Go Community Day approaching, developer Niantic has announced another, unrelated event that is now underway. And if you missed out on the opportunity to catch two of the previous Legendary Pokemon that were available in the game, you're in luck, as they're back for a limited time.
As part of Pokemon Go Legendary Week, which is now underway, both Kyogre and Groudon have returned to Raid Battles, where they can be found alongside Rayquaza. Groudon was the first Gen 3 Legendary added to the game and was available to face during December and January. Kyogre then took its place until mid-February, when it was replaced by Rayquaza, which will stick around until March 16.
Despite the name, Legendary Week will last more than a week–it runs from now until March 5, giving you a total of about 10 days to get your hands on the returning Legendaries. To further mix things up, the specific Legendaries that are taken down during that period will have an additional e..

Star Wars Episode 9 Director Confirms That The Script Is Finished

Star Wars Episode IX was originally set to be directed by Jurassic World's Colin Trevorrow, but in September last year, Trevorrow was replaced by Force Awakens director JJ Abrams. The movie's release was pushed from May until December of 2019 as Abrams worked on a new script, but the director has now revealed that it is finished and the movie will begin production this summer.
Abrams appeared on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert and was asked about progress on Episode IX. “We have a script, which is a big deal for me,” he said. “It starts shooting end of July. Sometimes having the script in advance is something I haven't always been lucky enough to have. But I'm writing this with Chris Terrio, who's a genius, and I'm having a great time.”
In October, Abrams hinted that he wouldn't play it safe with his second Star Wars film. “I feel like we need to approach this with the same excitement that we had when we were kids loving what these movies were,” he..

New Bond Film: Trainspotting Writer Working On Script—Report

Earlier this week, it was reported that the producers of the James Bond series had their sights set on Slumdog Millionaire director Danny Boyle to helm the next 007 movie, which arrives next year. More details about Boyle's involvement have now emerged.
According to Deadline, Boyle is working on a script for Bond 25 with John Hodge, who wrote the screenplays for several of the director's movies, including Shallow Grave, Trainspotting, and 2017 sequel T2 Trainspotting. Boyle had an idea for “a very specific 007 movie,” and that this script is separate from the one by veteran Bond writers Neal Purvis and Robert Wade.
The site states that Hodge's script won't be complete for a couple of months, at which point it will be delivered to MGM. The studio will then make a decision about which script to go with; if the Hodge script is chosen, then Boyle will direct it. If not, he will step away and a new director will be hired to direct Purvis and Wade's screenplay.
