More than a few industries are going to thrive in this period of forced lockdown, and the biggest two I can think of straight off the top of my head, are streaming services and video games. We live in an age where both of these things can be beamed into our homes, with no need for us to step foot outside. Last week we told you all about what is coming to the bigger Streamers, now we're sharing the gaming titles that will help keep your sanity in these trying times... If you have the data to spare.
Since film releases are being pushed back until the end of the current COVID-19 business, we felt it was probably not a good idea to publish a list of movies that may not see the light of day until way later this year. So instead, we thought "well, everyone is streaming these days, why not fill them in as to what is heading their way?" And so, this was born!
Welcome to the "Rise of the Stream" era!
Fan favourite character added to the Disney+ series.
There had been some rumours circulating for months now that Disney+'s new successful show The Mandalorian would have some fresh faces for its second outing, but none of us could have guessed it would be Rosario Dawson (Briarpatch, Lego Batman and Zombieland: Double Tap) joining, and as fan favourite Ahsoka Tano from The Clone Wars and Rebels.
This month I am really excited for more than a few of these releases, especially The Hunt with my favorite from the It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia gang Glenn Howerton - that looks like it's gonna be playing a very Dennis Reynolds-esque character, Vivarium gives me big mindfuck vibes and could also possibly be hilarious, not to mention the hype for newcomers Carlo Mirabella-Davis with Swallow and Rose Glass with A24's Saint Maude on their first full length flicks. Will definitely be watching A Quiet Place Part II; I am very curious to see if John Krasinski's Horror will live up to the amazing 2018 first chapter.
Full disclosure, I had to add some movies I couldn't care less about not only for SEO reasons, but I think is fair to put a bit of everything in the mix.
Music is my bread and butter, I live and breathe it, but gaming is special to me. As a young lad I had an Atari 2600, then it was onto the original Nintendo, then the 64, before moving onto Playstation 1 and 2. It was around this time that I went over to Xbox and never looked back (though I did buy a Game Cube and Wii, which put me off Nintendo for a while), and that was just the consoles.
What I'm trying to say is, I grew up as gaming became big, I'm apart of the first real gaming generation, it's probably why I try to find as much time as I can to pick up my trusted controller and get some screen time.
With that said, here are the ten titles of the year that I'm willing to break the bank for!
