Rise of Skywalker director J.J. Abrams reveals his favourite Star Wars prequel scene

"There's just something about that scene," Abrams explained. The interviewer, Dalton Ross, replied that his favourite Prequel scene was that of Phantom Menace's climactic lightsaber battle between Darth Maul, Jedi Master Qui-Gon Jinn, and his apprentice, Obi-Wan Kenobi. "The reason I didn't love that was only because I remember the posters that advertised Darth Maul – the feeling of 'Oh my god, here we go!' Interestingly enough, Abrams is bringing back Ian McDiarmid, the shining light of his fav

Game of Thrones has an alternate ending, according to Tormund Giantsbane

Kristofer Hivju, who portrayed Tormund Giantsbane in HBO's Game of Thrones, says the series has an alternate ending we'll probably never see. Fans of Game of Thrones and anyone within a hundred-mile radius of pop-culture knows a good chunk of the community would gleefully accept an alternate ending, but it doesn't sound like the Thrones crew filmed a proper alternate ending. Talking with Metro at a Game of Thrones event, the actor said the scene was shot "mostly for fun," adding that he probably

Half-Life: Alyx is Valve’s VR-exclusive, full-length prequel to Half-Life 2

As promised, Valve officially unveiled a new Half-Life game on Thursday: Half-Life: Alyx, a full-length game designed for virtual reality.

Half-Life: Alyx is priced at $59.99, but will be free for owners of Valve's Index VR headset. Images released for Half-Life: Alyx show off environments that will be familiar to any

Clues point to Half-Life: Alyx being more than than just a prequel

Today the world was introduced to the first footage of Half-Life: Alyx, a VR action game from Valve Software. When last we saw Alyx Vance, she was battling alien overlords with Gordon Freeman (the longstanding silent protagonist of the Half-Life series), and Eli Vance, her father. In Half-Life: Alyx, players will control the titular character in events presumably leading right up to the beginning of Half-Life 2. Just that call-out alone would make Half-Life: Alyx not so much a prequel as taking

The Legend of Bum-Bo, a prequel to The Binding of Isaac, is out now

(Image credit: Edmund McMillen)Edmund McMillen, he of The Binding of Isaac, Super Meat Boy and The End is Nigh fame, has just released a new game. The Legend of Bum-Bo is a "puzzle based deckbuilding roguelike" which undoubtedly looks like a McMillen game, except it has a gloriously unusual cardboard cut-out aesthetic. Co-developed with James Interactive, it's described as a prequel to The Binding of Isaac, and one of its features is "poop". "...Players collect hordes of items that can be modifi
