This ad is causing Chinese comic book fans to get quite excited. I’m told that it seems to lead you to believe Stan Lee might be coming to an event in Shanghai in October, Stan Lee’s Comic Universe – but doesn’t say so specifically.
However, it appears more to be something closed to the Los Angeles convention that uses his name or has his company backing it – but without Stan Lee actually travelling to China.
Those who think otherwise are concerned given recent news about Stan and his convention appearances. But as Bleeding Cool pointed out, he did visit China last year in a hale and hearty fashion.
While a quick run through the ever-reliable Google Translate tells me ‘The invincible twister of the inch is the Stan Lee’ and that this event will be ‘most of the nude popular cultural events – “clear and confession of the universe” will be held in October 2018’
And remember, Stan Lee ‘has shaped the iron man, the captain of the United States, the price god, the spider man, and the ant’ and that ‘the classic anime images of the Panthers, the Hulk, the singular associations and the X-match have become the symbols of the laughing country.’
The credit cap may be annoying to players since it essentially means you can’t grind through to get credits, if you wanted to do that. With the cap in place, the game seemingly pushes you toward spending real money to buy loot boxes.
Remember when Marvel Comics established that as well as being director of SHIELD, Agent Nick Fury had a weekend gig as The Man On The Wall, shooting alien invaders of Earth from a very, very long way away? A role that the Winter Solider took over? And I have no idea who is meant to be taking that role now? I’m sure someone in the comments will tell me.
Well, in recent issues of Suicide Squad, we have encountered a decades-old version of Task Force X, led by Rick Flag’s grandfather, who seemed to do similar. And all of the actual craziness of alien encounters on the DC Earth being the ones that just slipped through. Turns out that the only thing stopping a full-scale Kryptonian invasion… was them.
Basically, if you ever wondered why the DC Universe was a bit safe compared to the Marvel Comics on the stands when you were a kid, it was these guys’ fault. Grandfather comic books. And now an in-continuity explanation courtesy of Rob Williams, Eleonora Carlini,and Wilfredo Torres.
Of course, now we have Metal to do some very silly things…
Look, an astronaut with a stetson. And their very own great-grandfather comics. Out today…
SUICIDE SQUAD #28
Rob Williams (A) Eduard Petrovich (CA) Tony S. Daniel
“THE SECRET HISTORY OF TASK FORCE X” part two! Strapped to a rocket, sent into orbit and dumped unceremoniously into a decrepit old satellite floating hundreds of miles above the earth, things have never seemed worse for the Suicide Squad-at least until they’re set upon by an incredibly deadly alien monster. Yeah, that’s worse. But at the heart of the mysterious space station hides a pair of long-lost DC characters ready to shake Task Force X to its very foundation.

It sounds like Destiny 2 is getting its first big time weapon balance update in the near future. In its latest weekly blog post, Bungie said it’s been monitoring the current weapon balance situation across the entire game and is planning some changes for the future.
Senior designer Jon Weisnewski said Bungie recently got its hands on the “first real batch of player data” from its analytics team. In addition to that data, he said Bungie has been “playing the every-loving crud” out of Destiny 2. It’s too soon for Bungie to announce the specific weapon balance changes that are coming, but they are coming, apparently.
“We’re not ready to go into detail about any weapon or ability tuning at this point, but there is an ongoing process in play, so we did want to drop a quick line and say…We have heard your feedback. Thank you!” Weisnewski said.
One thing that Weisnewski did confirm is that it’s looking “very closely” at the MIDA Multi-Tool. A lot of people are using it, he said, but this doesn’t necessarily mean it’s over-powered. “There are options out there that match or exceed its effectiveness in all activities,” he said about the weapon.
He went on to tease that there are still “a handful of guns” that aren’t yet released. “We’re excited to see how things evolve. As always, thanks for playing, and keep the feedback rolling in,” Weisnewski explained.
You can submit feedback to Bungie about Destiny 2’s weapon balance and other subjects here in the game’s Feedback forum.

It looks the PlayStation 4 is going to add a classic Square Enix RPG soon. Gematsu noticed that The Pan European Gaming Information board (PEGI) recently rated Square Enix’s Final Fantasy IX for PS4. This could signal an official announcement to come soon, though this has not happened yet.
Final Fantasy IX debuted in 2000 for the original PlayStation. The game was re-released for PlayStation 3, PlayStation Vita, and PSP through the PlayStation Network in 2010. In 2016, Square Enix brought it to PC and mobile devices, and it looks like PS4 is the game’s next stop.
If the listing is legitimate, it would follow than an official announcement of Final Fantasy IX for PS4–and potentially other platforms–could come soon. Keep checking back with GameSpot for the latest.
It looks like the Nintendo Switch‘s eShop is having some issues right now, as people are reporting that they cannot access the store. It’s unfortunate timing, as Splatoon 2 launches today. Attempts to log into the eShop return the error code 2811-7504.
GameSpot was unable to log into the eShop from a US account, though we were able to sign in with no issue from an Australian account. As usual, your mileage may vary, but what seems clear is that there is some issue affecting at least a portion of players.
Are you experiencing this problem? Let us know in the comments below!
It looks like the PlayStation Network is experiencing some issues right now. The official PSN status page shows that basically all PSN services are running into problems currently.
This includes Account Management, Gaming And Social, PlayStation Now, PlayStation Video, PlayStation Vue, PlayStation Store, and PlayStation Music. Affected platforms include all the big ones: PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, PlayStation Vita, PC, and mobile.
“Our engineers are working to resolve the issue as soon as possible, and we thank you for your patience,” Sony said.
People on NeoGAF are saying that they are receiving notifications that this downtime could be related to maintenance.
It’s not immediately clear how widespread these issues are. As always, some people may experience issues while others don’t, and there could be many reasons for that.
We’ll update this post with new details as they become available. We would expect the issues to be sorted out relatively soon. Keep checking back with GameSpot for the latest.
The new Assassin’s Creed game that Ubisoft confirmed today during its earnings briefing, may be formally announced at E3. Ubisoft sent an email blast today, informing fans to “stay tuned for E3.”
The image included in the email shows the famous Assassin’s Creed logo and the tag line, “Make history.” That’s all there is to go on at this time, unfortunately.
Ubisoft has yet to announce when its E3 briefing will take place this year, though history suggests that it’ll take place on the afternoon of Monday, June 12. GameSpot will report back with all the details about the new Assassin’s Creed as they are announced.
Ubisoft’s E3 briefing might also bring more news about the just-announced games Far Cry 5 and The Crew 2, while surprises are also surely in store as well.
Going back to the new Assassin’s Creed game, it is rumored to be titled Assassin’s Creed: Origins. An off-screen image purporting to be a “first look” at Origins was also leaked alongside the name. It featured a bow-wielding character on a boat, calling to mind elements of Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag.
