Who Will Dark Kara Be in ‘Supergirl’ Season 4?

Hopefully we’re not alone in the belief that nothing is more exciting than meeting a beloved character’s doppelganger, evil twin, or even an alternate self from another universe. It has certainly happened on The Flash, the first time the team visited Earth 2. Or how about Caitlin Snow’s dramatic transformation when she first became the wicked Killer Frost? And anyone remember that old Buffy episode, “Dopplegangland,” where Anya brings Willow’s sultry vampire doppelganger to Sunnydale? It’s a real classic.

Well, it looks like in Season 4, Supergirl is at it…again. During the last moments of the Season 3 finale, Supergirl pulled a quick redo to put an end to Reign’s growing power, but this time without the accompanying deaths of her family and friends. She had killed Reign the first time, breaking her own code. This time, she would do it “right.”

So, just a quick super-powered time travel to a few moments before, with no worry of the consequences. Instead of killing Reign again, she took Reign and Sam to the Dark Valley. There, Sam was able to overpower her alter ego, forcing Reign to drink water from the Fountain of Lilith which trapped her in the Dark Valley permanently. Problem solved.

However, when Kara used the black rock to travel to the Dark Valley with Reign and Sam, it summoned a smoke trail over to Siberia, of all places, where a clone of Kara suddenly appeared. The last scene of the episode shows the clone waking up, naked and afraid, near some kind of military camp. That black rock is no joke, and now we’re super worried about what Lena Luthor might accidentally, or purposefully, do with it, and what kind of insanity the clone of Kara that it created will bring to the story.

So what can we expect from this alternate Kara?


Melissa Benoist as Bizarro
Melissa Benoist as Bizarro

We’ve already met Bizarro, a twisted and demonic-looking clone of Supergirl (borrowed from the pages of a Superman comic story), in the midst of the first season. But she was a new version of Supergirl. Now we have a new version of Kara. And did Supergirl do some damage to the timeline by her quick trip back in time? Or will the powers that be leave those timeline course-correct stories to Team Flash?

We can pretty safely assume that this black rock is actually Black Kryptonite. Originating in the beloved Smallville series before making its way to various comic stories, Black Kryptonite is a weaponized version of kryptonite, created by heating the standard Green Kryptonite to extreme temperatures. On Smallville, the rock actually separated Doomsday from his human identity, Davis Bloome, creating two separate beings. Sounds very much like what the rock did to Reign and Sam, and now to Kara and this mystery clone. We’d bet the keys to Catco that Black Kryptonite is exactly what we are dealing with.


Superman as Red Son
Superman as Red Son

The clone’s appearance in the Russian province of Siberia has lead to some chatter about the Superman comic story “Red Son.” In the 2003 comic, a story was told that imagined the Superman we know and love having landed in the Soviet Union instead of in Smallville, Kansas in the good ol’ USA. A drastically altered version of this story could be fun for Supergirl to explore. And it’s extremely fun to ponder.

Let’s take a trip back to 1985, when the world first learned about Ivan Drago, the villain in Rocky IV. After three movies filled with beatings, Rocky was ready to retire. But then the emerging Soviet superstar boxer Ivan Drago reared his ugly head. He bragged and boasted and showboated his way to the USA, which encouraged the in-need-of-validation Apollo Creed to challenge Drago to an exhibition fight for posterity. In short, Drago basically beat Creed to death, sending Rocky on a road back to the ring to avenge the death of his best friend. This same history is being called back on for the upcoming movie sequel, Creed II.  The sons of Apollo Creed and Ivan Drago will have a dramatic and vengeful fight to the finish. With the resurgence of this classic story, let’s imagine a Supergirl variation.

Naked, alone, and in Siberia, the Kara clone finds refuge in a cold military group, perhaps an evil version of the D.E.O. Her smarts and skillsets make her a valuable member, especially when she discovers her superpowers. The Kara we know is as good and moral as a Disney princess. Imagine the polar opposite. Being trained and supported and essentially raised by a group of evildoers with dangerous technology and malicious intentions.


Melissa Benoist and Katie McGrath
Melissa Benoist and Katie McGrath in ‘Supergirl’

When Supergirl and the D.E.O. learn of dark happenings on the other side of the world, they eventually realize a need to intervene. And this will lead to an epic face-to-face battle between Kara/Supergirl and her evil Soviet clone! Lena and her mastery of Black Kryptonite would surely serve some major purpose.

However the clone story develops, we can’t wait to see how Kara and crew decide to put an end to it. Will there be a fight to the death, or will they once again use a method to conjoin Kara with her clone?

Fun to think about, don’t you think?

This corrector is the only product that will hide my dark circles

‘I’ve relied on the same corrector for over 10 years’

For as long as I can remember, I’ve had dark circles under my eyes.

The whole surrounding area is slightly darker than the rest of my face, and there is a fingerprint’s worth of purplish shadow under each eye. It doesn’t matter whether I’ve had three or 12 hours of sleep, they’re always there.

As my natural skin tone is very fair (my specialist subject is the best foundation for pale skin), my dark circles stand out all the more against such a light backdrop.

Alright, so there are worse problems to have – but it does mean I look tired all the time IRL. That’s why I’ve relied on the same corrector for over 10 years.

I do my make-up on the train to work every day, and am often asked for the name of the magical product I’m using under my eyes; my favourite was the woman who described it as ‘the thing that made you look so awake just now’.

The product in question is Bobbi Brown’s Creamy Corrector, described by the brand as one of her ‘secrets of the universe’ (I’ll say). If I was allowed to wear only one make-up item for the rest of my life, it’d be this.

The shade-matched formula has a hint of pink or peach, depending on your skin’s undertones, to neutralise and correct any darker blue or purple patches.

And with a huge spectrum of more than 20 shades on offer, both very fair and dark skin tones are catered for.

Bobbi Brown Creamy Corrector, £19.50, Fabled

Buy now

The brand recommends you follow up with their concealer to cover up the pink pigment, but there is so little in the fairest shade that I usually skip it. Skin tones darker than mine should probably follow this step, though.

I go through a pot of this about every three months, which means my corrector useage works out as 21p a day, so this is truly a worthwhile investment if you have dark circles like mine.

Other correctors are out there, but I’m yet to find one that’s tempted me to stray.

Feds take down dozens of ‘Dark Web’ weapons and drug vendors

Dark Web drugs, weapons

The ‘dark web’ — a series of websites accessible through the anonymous Tor browser, which lends a tends a thin veil of anonymity to users — shot to prominence as a place to buy almost anything thanks to a 2011 Gawker profile of The Silk Road, the internet’s first big marketplace for almost anything. Lawenforcement agencies were horrified of the idea that an Amazon for crime could operate semi-openly, making weapons, drugs, and hacking tools available to anyone with a fistful of cryptocurrency, so despite the fact that dark web sales make up a fraction of the global drug and weapons trade, police organizations worldwide have been cracking down with a vengance.

The Department of Justice announced Tuesday that it had arrested 35 individuals charged with selling “illicit goods,” and seized a reported $ 23.6 million in weapons, drugs, and cryptocurrency. The arrests were the culmination of a “year-long, coordinated national operation that used the first nationwide undercover action to target vendors of illicit goods on the Darknet.”

The 5 Best Challenge Runs to Try in ‘Dark Souls Remastered’

This won’t come as a shock to any Souls veteran, but Dark Souls Remastered gets easy after you put enough hours into it. The usual media narrative of “ha ha it’s so brutally hard” doesn’t ring true to those who’ve learned its systems. Enter the Dark Souls challenge runs.

Much like the original, Dark Souls Remastered is entirely breakable — in all the right ways. With some choice limitations, you can create some very interesting theorycrafting problems to solve. In Dark Souls, challenge runs are a great way to feel like you’re rediscovering the game all over again.


Drake Sword Balder Knight kill
No more Drake Sword making the early game easy

Some of the best challenge runs are no longer available if you haven’t already got the Dark Souls: Prepare to Die Edition on PC, because they come from mods. We even received an awesome mod just recently which gives you interesting debuffs for every boss you defeat. Check out LobosJr taking it on here.

That’s kind of a shame, but here are some great and interesting ways to make Dark Souls Remastered more challenging and fun for yourself. No mods necessary.

1. No Shield, Melee Only, No Summons

We’re starting basic. This is a challenge run that will teach you valuable skills for future challenge runs.

This run is great for learning how to properly roll. Since you can go through the main game with a heavy armour build, focused on blocking and poise, the lack of a shield here will force you to use Dark Souls Remastered‘s greatest gift: those invincibility frames on your roll.


Solaire hollow
But I'd feel naked without my shield!

And while it doesn’t explicitly force you to, it’s also a great time to learn how to parry. Certain enemies become vastly easier once you’ve overcome this hurdle. Havel becomes trivial, as do Silver Knights and Black Knights.

Going melee only without summons just makes sure you’re not going to cheese anything. Use your roll, Luke. Switch off your targeting computer and use your roll.

2. The Onebro Challenge Run

This is definitely one of our favourite challenge runs in Dark Souls, and we’ll probably be running it again in Dark Souls Remastered. The only rule here is you start as Pyromancer (the only level 1 class), and you can’t level up.

There’s no better challenge run to prove that Dark Souls Remastered is about skill. We’ve come across many who treat Dark Souls like a Final Fantasy game, thinking the answer to a tough fight is to go away and grind for a while. That won’t help you much in a Soulsborne.

Not only does beating the game as a level 1 require great technical play, each boss fight becomes its own theorycrafting challenge. You have to formulate a plan, crunch some numbers, and then execute that plan. That’s a true action RPG right there. This is a great new challenge for those who want to rediscover the game.


Laurentius of the Great Swamp pyromancy flame
Learn what you can from Laurentius to start with

A few tips, if we may.

We won’t tell you how to live your life, but accepted wisdom is the Reinforced Club is the best weapon to go with here. It suits your stats, you can modify it with elements, and it has some bonus bleed damage. If that’s not your cup o’ Estus, remember you can wield higher Strength weapons by two-handing them.

There are also two elements that don’t scale with stats: fire and lightning. Fire tends to do well against undead enemies (lucky there are a lot of those, eh?), while lightning does well against armoured enemies like Silver Knights or Smough.


Reinforced Club weapon
The Reinforced Club. Come for the stat requirements, stay for the bleed.

Pyromancy follows this rule as well. You don’t need special items to upgrade your pyromancy flame — just souls. You don’t need stats for Great Combustion to do great damage, either. But there are limited casts.

That means when you take on tanky bosses like Manus, even after all your Great Combustion and Black Flame casts, you’re still going to have to score some hits with your club. Good luck!

3. The One-Shot Boss Challenge

This is a super fun challenge popularised by Vageta, in which you have to earn the right to level up by defeating bosses in as few hits as possible. If you kill a boss in one hit, you get two points. If you kill a boss in two hits, you get one point. Each point allows you to level up one time.

Other than that, it’s fairly open-ended and you’re free to theorycraft to your heart’s content. You also get a point for one-shotting a miniboss, although the definition of a “miniboss” is a bit loose.

This one is a Dark Souls Remastered theorycrafting dream come true. There are so many interesting problems to solve, and you have to keep an eye on the endgame. You might have a great pyromancy strategy, but what happens when you go up against Quelaag, immune to fire?

There are obvious edge cases, such as Smough & Ornstein, in which you can’t win the whole fight with one shot. Vageta goes through the rules for these in the above video, but you’re free to tackle it in the way you think is fair and fun.

Without spoiling too much of the theorycrafting fun, there are some amazing quirks when spells and items are combined. Our favourite is the Red Tearstone Ring, which multiplies damage when you’re at extremely low health, and Power Within, a sizeable buff that constantly drains your health.


Plunging attack Taurus Demon
Vageta uses a plunging attack to kill the Taurus Demon in one hit

Using both of these (and others) combined, you only have a window of 20 seconds before you either heal, or Power Within kills you. Having so much depend on a few seconds makes the fight incredibly tense.

It’s just one interesting dynamic in this challenge run. And it’s worth all the work when you add those one-shot kills to your highlight reel.

4. The ‘Ooh Shiny!’ Challenge Run

Use what you see! If you see a shiny item, equip it. If you spot a chest with armour in it, put it on. Everything that enters your view in this run, you have to use.

Popularised by LobosJr, this run essentially requires you to put a lot of investment into Strength and Dexterity. You’re picking up weapons that won’t be upgraded the entire game, and relying on their base scaling attributes. It’s hard, and it’s a bit of silly fun at the same time.


Naked Dark Souls katana challenge run
LobosJr has to use every item he sees

An additional interesting element comes from knowing where items are and deliberately avoiding them. Keeping the camera pointed away from an item you know will screw you up is a funny way to play.

You can give yourself some concessions if you want, but the pure way to play this is, if it’s shiny, you equip it. Saw a sorcerer’s catalyst and don’t have any spells or Intelligence? Oopsie. Boss dropped a rare hammer that requires 50 Strength to use? Oh dear.

If you pick up something that completely screws you up, you have to go find another item to replace it with.

5. Honour Duels Challenge Run

Are you ready to play perfectly?

This run applies PvP etiquette to boss fights. Specifically, you can’t heal unless your opponent does. For the most part, that means no heals at all. But in the case of Smough or Ornstein coming back with full health, you’re allowed to as well.

While seemingly very hard at first, you may actually want to provide some additional limitations for this one. Mainly because it’s possible to do so much damage through sorcery and other means.


Ornstein Smough boss fight
Yeah, good luck with Ornstein & Smough.

Bonus: Create Your Own

Of course, there’s nothing stopping you from creating your own challenge. Everything above was started by Souls players just having a think about how they could make their favourite game more fun. After so many years, you have people doing level 1 runs of NG+7 with no rolling/blocking/parrying/sprinting.

If you’re at a loss for interesting runs, why not randomly generate one?

Once you open it up to NG+, a whole new slew of options become available. The Calamity Ring run is popular, which just doubles all of the damage you take. Cosplay runs are also fun, donning the gear of famous Lordran adventurers like Tarkus or Logan. Bonus points for playing in their style, as well.

We hope there’s enough there to get you thinking about how to play this amazing game in different, interesting ways. We’re not sure what the mod situation will be like post release for Dark Souls Remastered, but even in its original form, this is the game that keeps on giving.

How we faced much more than the dark in ‘Are You Afraid of the Dark?’

TwitterFacebook

This post is part of Mashable’s You’re Old Week. Break through the haze of nostalgia with us and see what holds up, what disappoints, and what got better with time.

It was the show whose very name was a dare — a trial of courage, testing your mettle to stay up past bedtime, hang with the older kids, and listen to terrifying tales without squealing. Were we afraid of the dark? You bet your ass we were.

But that never stopped us from watching.

In retrospect, Are You Afraid of the Dark? was Twilight Zone for millennial kids: an anthology series that, through a twist ending, made you question the very fabric of your reality in awed horror. And that’s exactly why the collection of ghost stories has had such a lasting impact. It explored the fears of a young psyche like no other show. Read more…

Found: 7 Best Contour Products for Dark Skin

A well-defined facial structure is a makeup look that doesn’t seem to be going out of style anytime soon. The trick to achieving it? Contouring — an age-old makeup technique that gained popularity in the beauty community a couple of years ago after celebrities like Kim Kardashian started raving about how they use it to transform their faces temporarily.

As popular as it is, there just aren’t enough products on the market with shades deep enough that women of color can use. Remember: In order to properly sculpt any part of your face, you need a complexion product two or three shades darker than your skin. So when there aren’t many options out there that are darker than caramel, it’s really difficult for women of color to properly sculpt their faces as they please.

All in all, while the pickings are limited for those rich in melanin, there are some high-performing contour palettes, powders and sticks worth checking out if you want to try out contouring if you have darker skin. Ahead, we’ve compiled a range of them at all price points.

Dark Chocolate Reduces Stress and Inflammation

New research shows there might be health benefits to eating certain types of dark chocolate. Findings from two studies being presented today at the Experimental Biology 2018 annual meeting in San Diego show that consuming dark chocolate that has a high concentration of cacao (minimally 70% cacao, 30% organic cane sugar) has positive effects on stress levels, inflammation, mood, memory and immunity. While it is well known that cacao is a major source of flavonoids, this is the first time the effect has been studied in human subjects to determine how it can support cognitive, endocrine and cardiovascular health.

Lee S. Berk, DrPH, associate dean of research affairs, School of Allied Health Professions and a researcher in psychoneuroimmunology and food science from Loma Linda University, served as principal investigator on both studies.

“For years, we have looked at the influence of dark chocolate on neurological functions from the standpoint of sugar content — the more sugar, the happier we are,” Berk said. “This is the first time that we have looked at the impact of large amounts of cacao in doses as small as a regular-sized chocolate bar in humans over short or long periods of time, and are encouraged by the findings. These studies show us that the higher the concentration of cacao, the more positive the impact on cognition, memory, mood, immunity and other beneficial effects.”

The flavonoids found in cacao are extremely potent antioxidants and anti-inflammatory agents, with known mechanisms beneficial for brain and cardiovascular health. The following results will be presented in live poster sessions during the Experimental Biology 2018 meeting:

Dark Chocolate (70% Cacao) Affects Human Gene Expression: Cacao Regulates Cellular Immune Response, Neural Signaling, and Sensory Perception

  • This pilot feasibility experimental trial examined the impact of 70 percent cacao chocolate consumption on human immune and dendritic cell gene expression, with focus on pro- and anti-inflammatory cytokines. Study findings show cacao consumption up-regulates multiple intracellular signaling pathways involved in T-cell activation, cellular immune response and genes involved in neural signaling and sensory perception — the latter potentially associated with the phenomena of brain hyperplasticity.

Dark Chocolate (70% Organic Cacao) Increases Acute and Chronic EEG Power Spectral Density (μv2) Response of Gamma Frequency (25-40Hz) for Brain Health: Enhancement of Neuroplasticity, Neural Synchrony, Cognitive Processing, Learning, Memory, Recall, and Mindfulness Meditation

  • This study assessed the electroencephalography (EEG) response to consuming 48 g of dark chocolate (70% cacao) after an acute period of time (30 mins) and after a chronic period of time (120 mins), on modulating brain frequencies 0-40Hz, specifically beneficial gamma frequency (25-40Hz). Findings show that this superfood of 70 percent cacao enhances neuroplasticity for behavioral and brain health benefits.

Berk said the studies require further investigation, specifically to determine the significance of these effects for immune cells and the brain in larger study populations. Further research is in progress to elaborate on the mechanisms that may be involved in the cause-and-effect brain-behavior relationship with cacao at this high concentration.

While poking around in the WebKit source code (which is the engine that power Safari), the site stumbled upon an intriguing piece of code that seems to imply that Apple will be adding a system-wide dark mode to Mac.

As 9to5Mac explains, new code implemented into WebKit in March indicates that Apple will introduce an official dark mode in macOS 10.14, which will be the next major release of the operating system after High Sierra.

Nintendo Just Announced a Bunch of Switch Games, Including Dark Souls

Nintendo fans had plenty to be excited about in 2017 with the release of games like The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and Super Mario Odyssey. Now in 2018, Nintendo plans to update more of its popular franchises with Splatoon 2 and a Nintendo Switch version of Super Smash Bros. In addition, the company announced Thursday at its Nintendo Direct event, it’s bringing a remastered version of Dark Souls to the console.

There’s no official name for the new Super Smash Bros. installment yet, but a teaser video clip showed mainstays like Mario and Link from The Legend of Zelda series, as well as newcomers such as the Inklings from Splatoon. Inklings, the human-squid hybrids that can transform to swim through pools of ink, have never been featured in a Super Smash Bros. game before. The new title will be coming later this year

If history is any indication, the new entry in the fighting game series is bound to be a hit on the Switch. Super Smash Bros. for Wii U was the console’s fourth most popular game, while Super Smash Bros. Brawl was the Wii’s eighth best-selling title, coming just after games like Wii Sports, Wii Fit, Wii Play, Mario Kart, and New Super Mario Bros. Wii.

Super Smash Bros. is small part of the roster Nintendo has planned for the Switch in 2018. The company also announced a handful of previously released games that will be making their way to the Switch, such as South Park: The Fractured But Whole, which arrives on April 24, Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy, which launches on July 10, and Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker., which will be available starting July 13. Dark Souls will land on May 25, and a remake of action adventure game Okami HD will be released this summer.

Nintendo also divulged details on Mario Tennis Aces, such as the different gameplay modes and features players can expect. In a video demo, Nintendo showcased the types of shots players will be able to dish out on the court, including a powerful Zone shot. With this technique, players can pinpoint certain areas on the court using motion controls and target their opponents to damage their tennis racket. The game launches for the Switch on June 22.

The announcements come after a successful first year for the Switch. In January, the company said that the Switch was the fastest-selling home game console ever in the U.S., with 4.8 million units sold in 10 months. Check out the full video above for more details on the newly revealed games coming to the Switch in 2018.

‘Immortal: Unchained’ Brings the Big Guns to the ‘Dark Souls’ Formula

For those who thought Dark Souls needed guns, Immortal: Unchained takes the Souls formula and adds in some third-person shootypoots on the PC. We’re not talking about the ye olde Bloodborne blunderbuss, but futuristic paincannons with lots of neon, and hexagons.

It’s got all the hallmarks of a Souls-like. A stamina-based combat system, a separate health bar (see: Poise) to indicate when you’ll stagger enemies, and invincibility frames on your dash move.

There are no blocks or parries in Immortal: Unchained however, so it’s very much a shoot-scootin’ boogie.

It has bonfires, although here they’re called “obelisks.” And it has souls, although here they’re called “bits.” And you similarly have to run back to the place of your death to regain them. Because nobody likes having their bits out in the open.

It also maintains the oppressive, understated narrative style of Dark Souls. You even start off the game being released from a prison cell!

No Room For Randomness

We liked that everything is skill-based in Immortal: Unchained. Out of the basic array of attributes, one of them allows you to increase your critical hit damage. But instead of crits being luck-based, it’s decided by getting behind enemies to hit their weak spot — a system used heavily in both boss fights we played.

There are no benefits to aiming at the head, so you’re free to lock on and fire at the torso. This also means you can use a controller with no penalty. Recoil on weapons is massive, though, so you will want to manage the distance between you and your enemy.

What it’s done here is interesting. Ammunition is limited, and often weapons will fire in three-shot bursts or something similar. This means the closer you are to your enemy, the more ammo efficient you are. You’re naturally penalised for trying to cheese enemies with distance. But if you get in tight, and play risky but well, you’ll set yourself up with lots of bullets for the boss.

We noticed tracking on enemy attacks is very fast, which isn’t a bad thing. Sometimes it doesn’t matter where you are, the enemy swing will track you and hit you. This just means that you’re relying a lot more on the invincibility frames on your dash to avoid damage. It’s more about timing than placement — and you can put points into a particular attribute that increases your invincibility window.

Alpha is the New Beta

We played a very early “alpha” version of the game, so the world was a bit bare and some things were a tad off. Melee attacks will sometimes hit you even if they don’t hit you. Sometimes melee damage occurs well after the contact.

But we would expect that by release, it’ll fix up the occasional inaccurate hitbox and flesh out the world to make it feel more lived in.

One thing that’s harder to fix is the vanilla firefight — the standard gunfight you have with the standard enemy. It’s currently a little bland, and you’re rewarded for playing in an unexciting way. AI tweaking, enemy placement changes, or some other solution might help Toadman Interactive find the fun here.

Whereas bullet spread was its solution for distance cheesing, it needs a similar solution for cover cheesing. That’s a harder problem to fix so we’ll be watching with keen interest. Bosses were a little more engaging, but the two that we saw had a very similar repertoire of about four moves.

Until we play a later version, we did have fun with Immortal: Unchained. We want to see a bit more from the bosses and fodder enemies. More variety, more intelligent ideas… but this is only the first two levels. With some work, this could very well be the next game to scratch your Souls itch.

Ensemble: Dark With a Colourful Kick

I enjoy wearing black with dark blue, but add a bit of a kick so that the visual effect isn’t quite so dark. Of course, you may prefer to keep the combination dark and that works too. 

Last weekend, I pulled together a smart casual outfit that I thoroughly enjoyed. It combined dark blue cropped straight jeans with a black and cream turtleneck, an ink blue polka dot blazer, a chartreuse coat, citron bag, pom-pom, and cream high-tops. I swapped out the sneakers for cream boots in the evening when we went out to dinner. The chartreuse coat is a roomy cocoon silhouette that works well layered over a blazer. Here are the exact items from my wardrobe.

Combine black and dark blue in any way at all. The kick can be bright or subtle, or leave it out completely. The outfit on the left approximates my own outfit from last week. The kick came through in the cream and yellow additions. The other rendition was inspired by a client. Combine black bottoms with a navy top and black jacket. Add black, silver or pearl grey footwear. Add lots of chunky silver jewellery and a silver or grey bag. The scarf is optional.

What to Expect from ‘Dark Souls: Remastered’

Thanks to the recent Nintendo Direct, we now know we’ll be getting a remastered version of Dark Souls coming to PC, PS4, Xbox One, and Switch.

The announcement was made with a fairly generic trailer:

Dark Souls was a highly experimental masterpiece with lots of hits and misses. We tend to wax poetic on the finer points and gloss over things like the Bed of Chaos. So we reached out to Bandai Namco to see if From Software would be taking the opportunity to make any fixes.

The answer is Dark Souls will be kept pure. No new content is confirmed, no changes or additions will be made. This is mainly a technical update — which is especially welcome for PC gamers. When From Software originally brought the game to PC due to a wildly popular petition, the port was almost unplayable unless you installed user-made mods.

Now you can have 4K resolution, with 60 frames per second. More importantly, you can expect the multiplayer servers to be online for a long time to come, fostering jolly cooperation years down the track.

Here’s what to expect in terms of specs for each platform:

Spec Original PS4/X1/PC Switch
Resolution 720p 1080p

PS4 Pro and XB1X: Upscaled 4K

PC: Native 4K (2K textures)

Handheld mode: 720p

TV mode: 1080p

Framerate 30 fps 60 fps 30 fps
Online Players 1-4 1-6 1-6
DLC Sold Separately Included Included

 
So it’s very much a Dark Souls: Remastered, and not a Dark Souls: Tweaked and Rejiggered.

If you’re unfamiliar with the Artorias of the Abyss DLC, you’re in for a treat. It’s some of the best content in an already stellar franchise. Fighting the knight Artorias, the black dragon Kalameet, and Manus, father of the Abyss, are all memorable boss encounters.


Dark Souls Remastered Artorias of the Abyss
Artorias the Abysswalker’s attack animations lure you into mistiming your rolls

Most multiplayer will take the form of summoning a friendly phantom, being invaded for pvp or both. The 6-player multiplayer shown in the table is a niche scenario in which you and a coop friend encounter an invader from the Gravelord covenant, who can summon three more dark phantoms to your world.

Even though topics like the Bed of Chaos are usually met with rolled eyes, and some covenants were as good as broken, it all adds to Dark Souls‘ experimental charm. All those things will be kept the same, and I wouldn’t even expect From to tweak item statistics.


Dark Souls Remastered Gravelord Nito
Nito, first of the Dead, is both a major boss and covenant leader

That’s good too. Item and weapon stats are absolutely not balanced in Dark Souls, and it allows you to do some bonkers things with theorycrafting like the one-shot boss challenge.

Knowing From Software, it probably won’t even feature a more comprehensive tutorial, despite Dark Souls being notorious for not explaining itself very well.

Whether that creates more problems for Switch users is something we’ll explore in more detail later. It’s a different audience, but there may also be technical limitations on the smaller screen and joycons.

Emmerdale fans convinced Robert Sugden ISN’T the father of Rebecca White’s baby with dark theory

EMMERDALE fans are convinced Robert Sugden isn’t baby Seb’s father – but that’s only the begging on the dark theory gaining steam online.

Fans of the ITV soap know that Robert cheated on husband Aaron Dingle with his ex Rebecca when they were going through another rough patch of their relationship, and out of that night together, baby Seb was born.

Will Robert be left holding the baby or is the theory too far-fetched even for soapland?<span style="font-size: 16px"> </span><span style="font-size: 16px"> </span>

Much was made on the show about Rebecca and Robert having unprotected sex, while when she slept with Ross Barton, protection was used, which is why Robert is Seb’s father.

However, the theory goes that Robert will be left holding the baby when Rebecca dies in the dramatic car crash set for January.

Fans claim that Robert and Aaron will then reunite properly before their summer wedding and raise Seb together.

Though the theory then takes a darker turn when it’s claimed that when the couple have bonded with Seb as their own, it will be discovered that Ross is actually Seb’s biological father and will claim custody.

Rebecca slept with both Ross and Robert in quick succession but paternity was never questioned
Fans are convinced the lack of a DNA test means trouble ahead for Robert and baby Seb
Poor baby Seb won’t know who his dad is without a DNA test

The theory, which is not backed up by facts, has been heavily discussed by fans of the soap on DS forums.

One fan wrote: “That is exactly what will happen. I’ve been predicting it since the day Rebecca got pregnant. Her only purpose was to give Robron a child to raise.”

Another added: “And then the truth will out as a DNA test will prove that Ross is the father really. Cue storyline revolving around custody, etc into next summer.
“Then Robron can be together & get married.”



A third added: “I’m thinking Rebecca will die, Robert getting access to Seb. Chrissie will be on a life support machine but Lachlan will turn that off. Lawrence will just leave the village and Lachlan will go on the run.”

‘Doki Doki Literature Club’ Is a Dark Mindf–k Twist on Anime Dating Sims

At first glance Doki Doki Literature Club looks like any number of high school anime dating sims, resplendent with pink hues and overly busty girls who blush at everything you say. But beneath the saccharine surface lies a hidden horror game that does what few games manage to do. It takes away the player’s ability to control the situation, dragging them into the horror and refusing to let them escape.

What’s really cool about Doki Doki Literature Club is that it’s a hidden horror game. The Steam page keeps it subtle, and the game starts off so normal that it’s easy to go in blind and get sucker punched by the initial descent into horror when the body count starts.

Doki Doki Literature Club is one of those “Best games nobody played” for 2017, but it’s definitely worth checking out on Steam, especially for anime fans or hell anyone into horror. Also it’s totally free so that’s freaking cool too.

The 13 Best ‘Are You Afraid of the Dark?’ Episodes

The ’90s were a great time to get into horror for kids. Are You Afraid of the Dark? was the pinnacle of horror properties aimed at children. And although the show lasted for five seasons before being canceled and then revived for a short (and unmemorable) two more seasons, it’s one of the defining pieces of horror pop culture from the ’90s.

In honor of the spookiest of holidays, and submitted for the approval of the Midnight Society, here are the 13 best tales from Are You Afraid of the Dark?

“The Tale of Laughing in the Dark” (Season 1 Episode 2)


are you afraid of the dark laughing clown zeebo

The second episode of the series is often the one most people remember. That’s probably because the clowns are utterly terrifying.

“The Tale of Laughing in the Dark” involves a ghostly clown named Zeebo whose spirit lives in a funhouse. When a bratty kid steals the clown’s nose, Zeebo decides to hunt him down. You don’t see tons of Zeebo in the episode but maybe that’s for the best.

The series would return to creepy clowns with “The Tale of the Crimson Clown” but it didn’t quite match this one.

“The Tale of the Super Specs” (Season 1 Episode 6)


are you afraid of the dark super specs

Are You Afraid of the Dark? occasionally stuck its toes into more sci-fi ideas and “The Tale of the Super Specs” is one of its best. A girl buys some magic shop glasses that show her shadow beings from a parallel dimension. The idea of other entities standing right next to you is creepy enough, but wait until you get to the twist ending. It’s a doozy. This was also the first appearance of magic shop owner Mr. Sardo (“That’s Sar-DOH! No Mister, accent on the do!”)

“The Tale of the Dark Music” (Season 1 Episode 11)


are you afraid of the dark music

Are You Afraid of the Dark? wasn’t afraid to go in for some rather chilling endings, and “The Tale of the Dark Music” has a fairly unnerving one. A boy discovers that there’s some kind of monster living in his basement that is summoned by music. He uses this to his advantage to get rid of his neighborhood bully and is rewarded with a new bicycle. When the monster tells him that he’ll grant his wishes if he continues to be fed, the boy remembers his bratty little sister and… Well, you’ll have to watch to find out if she makes it out alive.

“The Tale of the Pinball Wizard” (Season 1 Episode 13)


are you afraid of the dark pinball wizard

Even though it was primarily a horror show, Are You Afraid of the Dark? had its fair share of more fantastical stories. “The Tale of the Pinball Wizard” is about a game-obsessed boy who gets sucked into a pinball game and has to complete the adventure in the game. It’s a pretty silly but fun episode with a killer ending. If you or your kid needs a break from the frights, this is one to watch.

“The Tale of the Midnight Madness” (Season 2 Episode 2)


are you afraid of the dark midnight madness vampire nosferatu

Season two wasn’t full of lots of memorable episodes, but “The Tale of the Midnight Madness” stands out as the clear MVP.

Dr. Vink — another recurring character — brings a special copy of Nosferatu to a failing movie theater and it drums up tons of business. Too bad that the vampire in the movie starts popping off the screen and attacking people.

This episode is such a wonderful love letter to horror films and the old theater experience. It’s also worth seeing for Christopher Heyerdahl (Hell on WheelsStargate: Atlantis) as the villainous vampire.

“The Tale of the Bookish Babysitter” (Season 3 Episode 6)


are you afraid of the dark bookish babysitter

Admittedly, this one isn’t very scary but the story is good. A stubborn kid who loves TV is made to withstand a babysitter who loves books. However, her books have a very special quality: they come to life when you read them. When the kid starts picking up too many books, the stories begin to cross over and chaos ensues.

This episode is worth it for the babysitter. Her weirdly styled hair and devilish love of reading might have made her a formative crush in some little kid’s life… Ahem, moving on.

“The Tale of the Quicksilver” (Season 3 Episode 11)


are you afraid of the dark quicksilver

Are You Afraid of the Dark? was surprisingly good at coming up with some nifty low-budget monsters. “The Tale of the Quicksilver” is a good example of that. The story involves a pair of brothers who move into a new house. The younger brother gets sick and soon discovers that there is a spirit that is draining his life. The actual demon is just a guy in a tattered cloak with some simple makeup but it works for the age range it’s aimed at. Sometimes, simplicity allows for the scariest of creatures.

“The Tale of the Silent Servant” (Season 4 Episode 7)


are you afraid of the dark silent servant scarecrow

Scarecrows are inherently scary. They are humanlike figures dressed in tattered clothes. “The Tale of the Silent Servant” takes advantage of this and makes a decently creepy scarecrow. It’s a magical being that comes to life and does the bidding of two cousins. However, soon their wishes get twisted and the scarecrow is going to kill someone.

The episode is pretty standard horror fare but it’s more than effective for a young audience. And that scarecrow is still creepy.

“The Tale of the Ghastly Grinner” (Season 4 Episode 9)


are you afraid of the dark ghastly grinner

Let’s get personal for a second. “The Tale of the Ghastly Grinner” was the one episode of Are You Afraid of the Dark? that I couldn’t watch. This story of a comic book villain come to life was too much for my adolescent brain. His ability to turn people into giggling idiots that drooled blue slime can still get under my skin. I actually wrote to Stick Stickly one summer and asked him to play this episode so I could get over my fear of it. He never answered me. So, I guess I’m still afraid of this one on some level.

“The Tale of the Fire Ghost” (Season 4 Episode 10)


are you afraid of the dark fire ghost

In “The Tale of the Fire Ghost,” two siblings are hanging out at the firehouse where their dad works when a call comes in. Left alone, they discover that fire apparently can manifest as a spirit and it is freaky. The above shot is ambitious and well-executed for a kid’s TV show. And that fire ghost is legitimately terrifying.

“The Tale of the Dead Man’s Float” (Season 5 Episode 1)


are you afraid of the dark dead mans float pool

The last season of the original Are You Afraid of the Dark? went out with a bang. The effects budget was raised for certain episodes and the filmmakers made use of it.

The best-looking monsters are in the fifth season and it starts with this monstrosity. “The Tale of the Dead Man’s Float” involves an invisible pool ghost that is eventually revealed thanks to some acid. And that thing is what it turns into. This one probably sent a few kids to counseling.

“The Tale of the Night Shift” (Season 5 Episode 12)


are you afraid of the dark night shift vampire

Vampires were a staple of Are You Afraid of the Dark?, but the series saved the best for last. “The Tale of the Night Shift” tells the story of a vampire who feeds on patients at a hospital. When the vampire is revealed, he is a monster worthy of a feature film.

The makeup effects are fantastic and blood-curdling. Those red eyes! This is one of the best TV vampires ever and it’s on a Nickelodeon show. Man, this show was special.

“The Tale of Badge” (Season 5 Episode 13)


are you afraid of the dark badge

The final episode of the regular series gave us one last awesome monster in Badge. Badge is an ancient creature that has been trapped for 12 lifetimes. Only a magical family heirloom can seal him away before he can use his dark magic.

Badge is a wonderful way to end the series. He’s proof that there used to be entertainment that really tried to scare kids without patronizing them. We just don’t get that these days.

Are You Afraid of the Dark? is a milestone in horror history that helped make many kids fans of horror and genre stories for life. There’s no better time than now to revisit the series or show it to kids in your life. Everyone can use a few scares in their life.

Philip Pullman on His New Trilogy, His Influences and the Upcoming His Dark Materials TV Show

The article contains minor spoilers on the plot of La Belle Sauvage.

It’s been over twenty years since Philip Pullman introduced readers to the universe of His Dark Materials, and now he’s back with the first in a new trilogy entitled The Book of Dust.

At the end of the last book in the first trilogy, The Amber Spyglass, Pullman’s young heroes Lyra and Will have witnessed the death of the heavenly “Authority,” unwittingly staged the second fall of Man and cut a hole in the fabric of the underworld to free untold hordes of the dead to become one with the universe. How do you top that?

The answer is, you don’t. Instead, in La Belle Sauvage, Pullman has shrunk the canvas to present readers with a book that, despite being set over a decade before His Dark Materials, is less a prequel than a companion volume. In it, we meet Malcolm, a curious and lively inkeeper’s son who loves nothing more than boating up and down Oxford’s canals in the vessel that gives this first volume its name. He soon crosses paths with the infant Lyra, and is thrown into an adventure which takes its cues both from Boy’s Own tales of suspense and intrigue, and the fairies and spirits of English folklore.

In a conversation with TIME at his home in Cumnor, Oxfordshire in August, Pullman explained why he’d returned to the universe of His Dark Materials, gave some insight into the characters and themes of the new novel, and dropped some hints about what readers can expect from the second volume in the series, to be entitled The Secret Commonwealth.

TIME: You’ve been talking about the possibility of writing a follow-up to His Dark Materials for over a decade. Why now?

Philip Pullman: I felt there were more stories to tell. I felt that having established a position vis-a-vis organized religion, I was now free to look at other things that were of interest to me. I wanted to know more about Lyra, I wanted to know about other characters I’d seen peripherally, in the distance, and grew to like.

If His Dark Materials was about how innocence turns to experience, what is the theme of this trilogy?

I don’t write books to illustrate a theme but I sometimes find a theme developing as I write them. In this one, it’s the importance of imaginative vision, in William Blake’s terms. The dangers of what he called “single vision” — a narrow, dogmatic point of view that excludes every other angle of vision but what it deems to be true. You see that not just in dogmatic politics and religion, you see it in science, in all kinds of fields. It’s always destructive and it’s always restrictive and it’s always unhelpful. And in this trilogy, that sort of area is going to be what I’m exploring.

But the meaning of a book is never just what the author thinks it is. It’s a great mistake to rely on the author to tell you what the meaning is. We don’t know. The meaning is only what emerges when the book and the reader meet.

The journey from innocence to experience is still at the heart of this book though, with Malcolm’s journey?

Yes, but in a different way. The relationship you have with a six-month-old baby is not a romantic one, but a protective one. And Malcolm is in that relationship with Lyra. He’s immensely seized by the idea of this baby. He’s an only child, he has never even seen a baby before. And he is put in the position of having to protect her. It’s a position of great moral responsibility, a great moral weight. And he’s capable of bearing it.

Is there an element of autobiography in the writing of Malcolm?

I’d like to think so. I’m not sure I’d be as brave as he is. I suppose Malcolm is to a certain extent the boy I was. But then, Lyra is the girl I was. They’re both equally made up characters. I knew Malcolms and I knew Lyras when I was teaching. But yes, there’s an element of me in both of them. I loved writing about Malcolm and Alice, who I became very fond of.

Alice, the temperamental teenager who accompanies Malcolm on his quest, seems quite similar to the Lyra of the earlier books.

Well, we’ll find out more in the second book about her connection with Lyra, which might be a bit of a surprise. As soon as I thought of Alice, I could see how that was going to develop. Some characters arrive at your desk with either an atmosphere about them, or a sense that there is more to them … an already developed hinterland or where they’re going. Mrs Coulter, for example. As soon as I thought of her I thought, yes there she is. Alice was the same.

Did the character of Malcolm spring fully formed too?

Yes. I saw him with his canoe, and he just looked up. I used to be a teacher, for about 12 years, and I was teaching children of his age and Lyra’s age as she was in His Dark Materials and I knew lots of children like that. Immensely interesting, immensely likable and immensely unpredictable. A curious mixture at that age of complete innocence and the beginnings of intellectual maturity and discovery. It’s an extraordinary age.

This novel is set entirely in England, and mostly in Oxfordshire. What is it about Oxford that keeps bringing you back?

It’s a very rich place to write about. There are all kinds of things to write about. There are so many Oxfords and so many atmospheres. You could never get tired of it. Besides, it’s just down the road. I don’t have to go to Heathrow and get on a plane and deal with passports in order to research it.

Do you need to travel a lot to research the places you go to in your novels, like the Arctic?

No, because I make my world up. What I don’t know, I’ll find out in some way or another. And what I can’t find out, I’ll make up. The function of research for a novelist is simply to give you enough stuff so that you can make up something that you need. My test for it is, if I were reading this, would I think it’s genuine? If it looks alright to me, as an average reader, who has read a bit about the subject, I reckon that’ll do.

What about interviews?

No, because people don’t tell me things. It’s not in my nature. I can spend time with someone most agreeably, but they would never tell me anything important about themselves. I haven’t got that receptive, engaging, welcoming air about me. It’s a great gift, but not something that could be faked. I could have made myself interested in people … but it’s a question of whether people feel at ease about you or not, and I don’t have that capacity.

Evidently, that hasn’t impeded your creative spark.

Perhaps it encourages it.

In the new book, you delve into what life is like under the Magisterium, the “theocracy” that rules Britain. I wonder if there were parallels to what you see in the world today that were of particular influence?

Yes, of course. We see in the Middle East and in isolated pockets of western Europe the enormous enthusiasm which that point of view is accepted. Especially by young men who love the idea of an absolute answer to everything, for which they’re willing to die, and to kill. That’s the absolute final pitch of single vision. What the prophet says is what is true, and everything else is false. That cast of mind has not very often acquired political power, but when it does it’s absolutely murderous.

In many ways it seems as much like Soviet Russia, as historical theocracies like the Spanish Inquisition.

Well, Soviet Russia was, in all respects except one, a theocracy. When I was accused of promoting atheism and doing down the church and so on, I used to make this point. The Soviet regime had a holy book, by Marx. It had a priesthood, the Communist Party. It had even holy relics, the corpses of Lenin and Stalin in Red Square. It had a whole system of secret denunciation, just as they did in Venice under the Spanish Inquisition. And this is very important: they had a teleological world view. The church was doing all this because it was helping re-establish Christ’s rule. In Soviet Russia, they were working towards the dictatorship of the proletariat. The parallels are extraordinary and multiple. It was in effect a theocracy. The fact they were atheist made no difference at all. So, my antipathy to organized religion is an antipathy to theocracy and an antipathy to people who think they have the answer getting their hands on the levers of power.

The book changes direction in the second half, as a huge and mysterious flood rises. What inspired that?

Well, the flood is a kind of metaphor of course. Floods are things that carry you away. Floods are also things that uncover and bring to the surface things that have been hidden, and so on. So all those things are involved. But one of the origins of this story, I’m certain, was from my childhood in Australia. In 1956, the River Murray flooded in Victoria and also South Australia. We were living in Adelaide, as my stepfather was in the RAF. This flood came along, and I remember driving out to somewhere in the country from where we could see the flood. It was astonishing. It was a mass, immense, as wide as the sea, of grey water, whipped up by a cold wind, flowing inexorably from there to there. The power of it. It was an impression that never left me. And I always wanted to write about a flood. So I made my own flood here in Oxfordshire. And of course it’s a metaphor. It’s more than a flood. It’s a sweeping away of all sorts of things.

Up to that point the novel has been quite realistic, but the flood brings us into the fantasy world that one of the Gyptians in the novel calls “The Secret Commonwealth.” What is that?

Robert Kirk wrote this book in the 1680s, it’s his term for the world of fairies, gnomes, sprites … the world of spirits basically. Which, for him, as a clergyman was very real. He was also writing from the point of view of a culture in Scotland and in Ireland where the spirit world is very real. I’m fascinated by that world, which is the complete opposite of the world that science tells us about. This is not in any sense an anti-science thing, but in William Blake’s terms I’m a proponent of two-fold, three-fold and four-fold vision and not single vision.

Some writers about science use sentences like x equals nothing but y. Love is nothing more than the excitation of neurons in the brain, something like that. I would much rather say, love is the excitation of neurons in the brain, among other things. And I think that would be Blake’s attitude as well. That it can be all of those things. And that we’re not truly seeing it unless we see all of those things. That’s a lesson which Lyra and Malcolm will have to learn.

The first book of the original trilogy told a complete story, somewhat. At the end of this book, there are many things left unresolved and explained.

That was a different kind of book, with a more straightforward story. Lyra has lost something, [her friend] Roger has disappeared, she’s determined to find him. This is a different kind of mystery, a different kind of story. Various things are set in train in this book which will develop in the next one and the third.

If things are unexplained, it’s because I haven’t explained them to myself. There are things that it would be impolite to enquire into. For example, people have occasionally asked me how daemons are born. I’ve never sought to go into the gynecology of daemons and I think it would be rather impolite. People can imagine that for themselves.

What can you tell us about the rest of the trilogy?

In the next book, which is going to be called The Secret Commonwealth, we are fully in the realms of experience. It will be 20 years later, Lyra is going to be an undergraduate and her own woman. And completely unlike in this one, and completely unlike the Lyra of His Dark Materials, she’s going to have the beginnings of an adult’s preoccupations. There will be a lot of trouble.

The earlier trilogy was released at a time when social conservatism was in the ascendance, which I think feeds into the absolutism that you’re talking about. Do you feel like that has changed now in the U.S.?

What we were seeing then was the influence of the evangelical Republicanism on the Republican Party in particular. They sold their soul to this side of influence and effectively could do nothing to prevent Donald Trump when he came along. Because he seemed to be saying the things they wanted to hear, about cutting taxes and preventing immigration and all these things… but they didn’t see what an unguided missile he was going to be.

Back then, you were accused of peddling “atheism for kids.” Do you expect more controversy from this book?

No, this is a different kind of book.

Do you still receive letters from people telling you you’re going to hell?

No … yet I haven’t gone away. Clearly, no evident evil has sprouted from [the books’] presence in the world for 20 years. There’s nothing they can point to and say this man ought to be burned at the stake.

It feels like that religious absolutism has, to some extent, filtered into politics.

Yes, you can see it in Brexit. Once we throw off the chains of Europe, we can pay 350 million pounds a week to the National Health Service! Absolute bullsh-t of course. But they can say it, because they know the answer. Or because they pretend to know the answer.

Do you think the storyteller has a responsibility to reflect that in their writing?

It’s something I’ve thought quite a lot about. We are citizens too. So we have an obligation to do as citizens should do, which is to be honest where we can. To denounce tyranny and lies where we can. We have those responsibilities which are borne by everyone. So yeah, we do have that sort of responsibility. We have other responsibilities as well, of providing for the family. Of looking after the language — which is our tool, our medium. Our overriding responsibility is our responsibility to the story.

Is there also a responsibility to breed curiosity? It feels like an absence of curiosity is what makes you susceptible to demagoguery.

Absolutely. Curiosity is a virtue. The traditional Christian virtues of temperance, justice, fortitude, I agree with all of them. I’ve nothing to disagree with on Christian virtues except one, which is faith. I would rather substitute curiosity. Intellectual curiosity is one of the strongest virtues we have.

His Dark Materials is going to be a television show, on the BBC. You seem to have a mixed track record when it comes to adaptations.

I’ve been through all sorts of adaptations, some of them more successful than others. It’s been a radio play. It’s been a theatrical play, at the National Theater. It’s been a Hollywood movie. It’s had all kinds of embodiments.

The thing about a movie is that you’ve got to distill 12-13 hours of story into 120 minutes, and of course you can’t do it because you have to leave things out. Even a very faithful adaptation like Lord of the Rings left an enormous lot out, because you have to. The great advantage of the new world of long form television is that you can put much more in. So you can allow the time for a story to develop. So I’m hoping that will be the case for this adaptation.

Are you hoping for something along the lines of Game of Thrones?

I haven’t watched it. Not really my sort of thing. I don’t watch or read very much fantasy. I never really have. I read Lord of the Rings when I was an undergraduate, but I was very callow and easily impressed. Far less impressed by it now.

Martin famously struggles with finishing his work. Was the process of writing this burdensome? I know you declined to cut your hair until you were finished…

It was superstition. I made a stupid promise to myself, or a bargain with the muse or something. If I don’t cut my hair, this book will be all right won’t it? So I grew my ponytail which I still have in a drawer somewhere, in a Ziploc bag. I’m going to give it to the Bodleian Library. That was my personal superstition. I don’t know if it makes a difference or not.

‘Batman: Gotham by Gaslight’ Is the Dark Knight vs Jack the Ripper

Gotham by Gaslight is a fan-favorite comic and for good reason. It was the first Elseworlds comic — “what if?” stories featuring DC characters — and showcased excellent art by Hellboy creator Mike Mignola. The comic has maintained a strong following for years, and elements of it have cropped up in other Batman projects like a downloadable costume in Batman: Arkham Origins and an official sequel called Master of the Future.

Now, DC has brought the comic to life with one of their animated features. We got a sneak peek at the film while we were at New York Comic Con.

Putting the “Dark” in Dark Knight

Executive producer Bruce Timm (Batman: The Animated Series) was excited to talk about how Gotham by Gaslight allowed the filmmakers to do some darker things with the Batman character. “This is more of a horror story,” Timm explained. He wasn’t even sure if the movie will be PG-13 or R. DC let the filmmakers be as graphic as they intended, and Timm seemed ambiguous as to which way the rating could go. But the fans overwhelmingly shouted their approval with a loud, “R!”

But, the subject matter isn’t the only dark element. Gotham by Gaslight takes visual inspiration from Mignola’s color palette and shrouds the movie in shadow. “We tried to get as much shadow as we could,” said director Sam Liu. And that shows. The clips we saw, which involved fights between Batman, Jack the Ripper, Selina Kyle, and three street urchins names Dickie, Jason, and Tim, were drenched in dark tones. It was a far cry from the brighter clips we’ve seen in other first-look footage.

Giving the World’s Greatest Detective a Good Mystery

The most intriguing element of the movie is Batman’s investigation into Jack the Ripper. “In the comic, there was only really one suspect,” Timm said. The filmmakers broaden the cast and present even more potential candidates for Jack the Ripper’s identity.

“He’s… a cousin to Sherlock Holmes,” Timm said. It looks like the mystery element of the movie is something the filmmakers really stress. Batman is rarely given a compelling mystery to solve, but that was an integral part of Gotham by Gaslight‘s screenplay.

Gotham by Gaslight hits digital, Blu-ray, and DVD in early 2018.

‘Greenleaf’ Recap: Season 2, Episode 15: ‘What’s Done in the Dark…’

Just as soon as one secret and story unfolds – the silhouette of another one is silently lurking in the background, waiting for an opportunity to emerge from the darkness. But until that happens, let’s focus on the secrets that are exposed in episode 15 – “Two By Two.”

Bishop Greenleaf (Keith David) is suspicious of Lady Mae’s (Lynn Whitfield) relationship with Lionel (Tim Reid) after his departure from their home last week, but he’s saying nothing about it for now. He carries on with family business and church business as usual. While at the church office preparing his Sunday sermon, he receives a visit from none other than Rochelle (LeToya Luckett.)

She drops by Bishop’s office to deliver another large check. She tells him about her recent visit to the doctors’ office for her five-month breast cancer check up, and they have since called her back in for a follow-up. She says they want to meet with her in person which is a clear sign that something is wrong. Bishop consoles her by accompanying her to the appointment. While there, Rochelle receives great news that she is cancer-free. She does however have some kidney concerns that the doctors want to keep a close eye on, which is why they wanted to see her again in person.

Meanwhile, Lady Mae’s keeping a close eye on Rochelle, specially after she stops by Bishop’s office to find that he’s not there because he’s out with Ms. Cross. Lady Mae is a little panic-stricken by his absence, as  she already detects the Bishop’s distance and the turmoil developing in their marriage. And she’s not the only one – Grace (Merle Dandridge) sees it too. She asks her mother if everything is alright between she and the bishop and Lady Mae tells her no, but at the moment she has other things to handle.

One of those things to handle is finding a way to keep Charity (Deborah Joy Winans) home with her baby and off the road. She finds a way to do just that when she is informed that their housekeeper Maricel (Vickie Eng) has a family emergency. Her husband is in the hospital so she won’t be able to travel with Charity on the road to care for baby Nathan while she sings background for Tamela Mann.

Not only is Maricel’s husband extremely sick but he’s also an undocumented immigrant, which is why he delayed going to the hospital to get treatment in the first place. Lady Mae asks Grace to help,  but tells Charity the answer is “no” to taking the gig on the road.

But Bishop and Gigi are  ready to step in for a couple of weeks to take care of the baby and help Charity pursue this opportunity of a lifetime. Bishop puts his foot down and tells Lady Mae that Charity will be going on tour. When Lady Mae asks who will fill in as director of the music ministry in Charity’s absence, Bishop tells her that he’s bringing Carlton (Parnell Damone Marcano) back.

Bishop visits Carlton at his home to ask him to return to Cavalry but Carlton declines, remembering how he was treated at Calvary and in the church for being a gay man. But Bishop convinces Carlton that together they can change Cavalry into a more  inclusive church and change the world while they’re at it.

Meanwhile, Jacob Greenleaf (Lamman Rucker) is over at of Triumph dealing with his own issues as the new pastor. He receives a visit from Deputy Mayor Skip Leonard (Arnell Powell) who plans to run for Mayor and was counting on Basie Skanks’ support before he disappeared. With Basie gone, he wants Jacob to step in and endorse him in front of the public and congregation.

Skip tells Jacob that showing his support will come with benefits – financial benefits. Jacob sees the newly acquired cash flow from Skip as an opportunity to move forward with busing in the homeless members from his outdoor church. He presents the proposal to the church clergy and everyone except the church treasurer, Sister Britney Weaver (Dreah Marie), is on board.

During Sunday’s service Jacob discloses the amount that Deputy Mayor Skip pledges to award the church – $ 75 thousand dollars. This seems to quiet Sister Weaver for now.

Meanwhile, Kerissa Greenleaf (Kim Hawthorne) is finally taking notice that there’s something going on with Zora (Lovie Simone) One of her teachers calls to inform Kerissa that Zora has been acting very distant in class lately – not participating or actively engaging in class discussions as she used to do.

When Kerissa asks Zora if everything is OK,  of course, she lies and says yes. Kerissa tells  Jacob about Zora’s behavior and he suggests that maybe Zora is doing drugs. With this suspicion in mind, Kerissa searches through Zora’s room and her things. She doesn’t find any drugs,  but  she does find a condom.

This discovery leads to an intense mother/ daughter conversation. Kerissa tells her that having sex at such a young age is irresponsible and that she should wait until she’s married so that men will respect her – just as Jacob respected Kerissa’s decision to wait. Zora sarcastically questioned her father’s respect for her mother and at that point – SMACK!  Kerissa apologizes but suggests that Zora read Corinthians Chapter 7.

QUOTABLE: “There’s a lot of sex to be had but it’s never a measure of a woman’s worth.” – Kim Greenleaf

Inother mother daughter news, Grace wants her daughter Sophia (Desiree Ross) to get know Darius (Rick Fox) a little better so they all decide to have dinner together at her family’s home. Bishop’s discontent with Lady Mae is now increasingly obvious. During dinner, after Darius tells the story of how his parents died days apart from one another, Bishop states how incredible it must be to have that type of connection with someone but, he and Lady Mae have become disconnected and their marriage is suffering.

Bishop finally confronts Lady Mae about her affair with Lionel. She admits that she only began an affair with him to mask her pain after finding out about his one-night affair with her sister. Bishop says he came clean immediately after that happened but, Lady Mae and Lionel both chose to keep this a secret from him for years. At this point, he isn’t sure where he stands in his marriage.

Tasha (Asia’h Epperson) gets a phone call from Basie who won’t say where he is or when he’s returning but tells her  he loves her. She asks where he is but he doesn’t answer. He does tell her that the Greenleafs conned them out of their church and killed his father. He has plans for revenge but for now, he wants Tasha to make them pay and she agrees to his instructions. But behind Skanks we see a silhouette of a mysterious man. Basie hangs up the phone before we see who it is. What’s going on?

Maybe we’ll find out next week.

Boycotts and Brain Damage Cast a Dark Shadow Over Football Season

Mindy Reed has been in love with the NFL for more than 50 years. As a kid in Connecticut, she wore a Bart Starr jersey and bonded over the game with her dad. Fandom helped Reed break into the old-boys’ club as she climbed the corporate ladder at Dell and connect with football-mad Texans when she switched careers and became a librarian in Austin. Now she’s giving it all up.

Reed, 61, has decided to boycott the NFL because no team has offered a job to Colin Kaepernick, the quarterback whose protest of police brutality during the national anthem last season ignited a cultural firestorm. Reed, who is white, says police have pulled over her husband for “driving while black,” and tuning out the NFL is a way to show solidarity. She has plenty of company. Kaepernick’s supporters range from the active players who have continued his protest and celebrities like Spike Lee to the 175,000-plus signatories of a petition on Change.org called #NoKaepernickNoNFL.

Critics too are emboldened. After several Cleveland Browns players knelt during the anthem before an August preseason game, the police and paramedic unions planned to withdraw from a pregame flag ceremony.

For the NFL, the simmering conflict is one of many dark clouds looming over the start of the season. September has long been when America’s real national pastime reasserts its grasp. Yet rather than fighting over fantasy teams or marveling at Tom Brady’s longevity, fans in the run-up to this season have been consumed by soberer topics. Be it the Kaepernick debate, violence against women or the nature of the game itself, a growing number of Americans are becoming fed up with football.

The most important NFL news this summer was not a big free-agent signing but a study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association in July. Researchers examined the brains of 111 deceased NFL players and diagnosed 110 of them, or 99%, with the degenerative brain disease CTE. The study, said author Dr. Jesse Mez, “suggests, with a lot of caveats, that this is probably not a rare disease–at least among those who are exposed to a lot of football.”

Two days after the findings were released, Baltimore Ravens offensive lineman John Urschel, who’s studying for a Ph.D. in mathematics at MIT, abruptly announced his retirement. His decision was reportedly linked to the study. Urschel is one of several NFL players who have retired in their prime rather than increase their chances of developing serious brain injuries. These concerns are trickling down to the youth level: some 23,000 fewer students played high school football last season than in 2015, and schools and peewee programs are dropping their teams for lack of interest.

Alleged violence of a different sort defined another off-season story. On Sept. 5 an arbitrator upheld the NFL’s six-game suspension of Ezekiel Elliott, the young Dallas Cowboys star who led the NFL in rushing last season, for violating the league’s personal-conduct policy after an ex-girlfriend accused him of domestic violence. Officials in Columbus, Ohio, declined to pursue charges, and Elliott has denied the allegations.

Then there is the matter of Kaepernick, whose absence from the game may well be more significant than his presence. He is no longer the player he was in 2013, when he led San Francisco to a Super Bowl berth, but he did throw 16 touchdowns last season against just four interceptions. Yet since March, NFL teams have signed 20 new free-agent quarterbacks who have never completed a pass in the regular season. Ravens owner Steve Bisciotti admitted it was about more than talent when the team considered signing Kaepernick, and he asked fans to weigh in. Former Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis–who pleaded guilty to obstruction of justice in a double-murder case but didn’t lose his NFL livelihood–said Baltimore passed on Kaepernick because his girlfriend posted a racially charged tweet. This, when NFL teams have signed players who have been convicted of domestic violence, illegal gun possession and DUI manslaughter.

Last year the NFL’s once reliable regular-season TV ratings dipped by 9%. They could fall again if more people like Reed turn away. “Who knows what I might discover out there,” Reed says of life without the NFL. “I certainly know how to read a book.”

This is the dark meaning behind Sansa’s outfits in new Game of Thrones

Did you spot it?

Words by Jadie Troy-Pryde

Of all the characters in Game of Thrones, Sansa Stark seems to have had the biggest transformation. When you look at all the other female leads – Cersei Lannister, Arya Stark, Daenerys Targaryen, Margaery Tyrell, Brienne of Tarth – they’ve all been pretty fierce from the start. Okay, Daenerys took a few episodes to warm up but she quickly became the definition of a Westerosi girl boss if ever there was one.

Sansa, on the other hand, started off as a delicate and sensitive flower, and has been one pretty consistently since. It’s fair to say that the red-headed Stark has had it pretty tough – she saw her father decapitated, suffered at the hands of Joffrey, was tormented by Cersei, married off to Tyrion, kidnapped by Littlefinger and married off again to psychopathic Ramsay Bolton before she decided to ditch the naivety in favour of something darker and more calculating.

Now, in season 7, she has decided to allow all of the horrendous things that have happened to shape her as a straight-talking, no bullshit woman of Westeros. From the moment she cut Littlefinger’s counsel short with: ‘No need to cease the last word, Lord Baelish. I’ll assume it was something clever,’ we knew that Sansa was on her way to joining the show’s legion of female badasses.

It’s therefore fitting that Sansa’s costumes reflect this new, strong Lady of Winterfell. As well as padding out with fur from IKEA rugs like her half-brother (ahem, cousin) Jon Snow, costume designer Michele Clapton revealed that Sansa’s latest outfits have a dark meaning. The use of blacks and dark greys are used to show how she was repressed by the men in her life following her father’s death, first at the hands of Joffrey, then Littlefinger, then Ramsay, and it serves as a warning to any man who wants to come near her.

One interesting detail is her belt. Clapton said: ‘This is her taking back control of her body. I designed it to wrap around over her side-laced dress to represent the absolute removal of any possible physical touch.

‘Her dresses are also tightly-laced on, incredibly difficult to remove; it’s a message to Littlefinger.’

The one positive to come out of her sartorial transformation, Clapton says, is her cape which is a nod to her father, Ned.

‘Sansa’s cape, for instance, represents Ned and her desire to take on more of a leadership role at Winterfell,’ she says.

Talk about Medieval power dressing.

SPECIAL TIP UPDATE!

Hopefully Trump’s Photograph With Darth Vader Isn’t A Dark Omen

President Donald Trump flew on Air Force One to Florida Thursday for his first in-person meeting with Chinese President Xi Jinping.

On the way, the plane screened the 2016 “Star Wars” movie, “Rogue One.” Trump did an interview with press inside the plane and stood right next to a television playing the movie about a group of rebels who aim to thwart an oppressive government. The president happened to be standing next to the screen at the moment in the movie when Darth Vader emerges for the very first time. 

Photographer Jim Watson captured the scene for Getty and BuzzFeed News editor Hayes Brown shared the photo on Twitter, calling it “beyond iconic.”

This isn’t the first time Trump and the Darth Vader character have been juxtaposed over the last few months.

A movement from Trump supporters to boycott “Rogue One” after a film writer’s comments grew large enough that Disney chief executive Bob Iger spoke up: “There are no political statements in it, at all.” The protestors apparently believed that the movie had reshoots to make Darth Vader’s journey serve as a metaphor for Trump’s.

The connection has also come from within the president’s own team. 

Days after Trump’s election win, his chief strategist Steve Bannon told The Hollywood Reporter, “Darkness is good.” Bannon continued, “Dick Cheney. Darth Vader. Satan. That’s power.”

Maybe Trump has been trying to tell us something with that long red tie all along.

Aaron Eckhart Explains How ‘The Dark Knight’ Mirrors American Unrest Today

Oftentimes, art and film reflect the real-world tensions that afflict our society. For actor Aaron Eckhart, the current anti-Trump demonstrations that are taking place in cities across the U.S. hark back to a film of his own: “The Dark Knight.”

Speaking with HuffPost’s Lauren Moraski on Monday, Eckhart, who stars in the upcoming film “Bleed for This,” looked back on “The Dark Knight,” in which he starred as district attorney Harvey Dent.

In the film, Dent and Batman aim to stop crime and bring down The Joker ― albeit through different methods. Batman/Bruce Wayne’s wealth enables him to fight The Joker, but the superhero’s desire to take action is ultimately relatable. It’s a sentiment that plenty of Americans feel right now, Eckhart said. 

“We all have those feelings inside of us of like, ‘I would like to make a difference. I would like to be able to act. How do I do it?’” he said. “Batman, especially in the ‘Dark Knight’ and that trilogy, is an excellent example of ― now he has different tools than us and he has money but ― our desire as good citizens to make a difference and how do we do it with all the corruption that it amongst us right now.”

Eckhart, who said he saw protests in New York while walking home in midtown, added that the film can provide a glimpse into many of the issues we face in real life.

“Cinema, art is a mirror of our time … even if it’s a Western or if it’s a superhero movie or whatever, it’s all coming from the collective unconscious,” he said. “So ‘Batman,’ I thought, had so many complex levels.”

Carhartt Clothing Men’s 102275 201 Water-Repellent Dark Brown Avondale Midweight Camo Sweatshirt

Carhartt Clothing Men’s 102275 201 Water-Repellent Dark Brown Avondale Midweight Camo Sweatshirt


So you’re professional sporting career did not pan out. Unfortunately for you, as well as all of us, that means we don’t get breaks due to rain during day-to-day activities. If the forecast calls for rain, and you want a practical as well as fashionable men’s sweatshirt, then you should consider this Carhartt Men’s 102275 201 Dark Brown Avondale Midweight Camo Water-Repellent Sweatshirt. This dark brown sweatshirt from Carhartt is a 10.5-ounce material that’s ready to give you quality coverage. The fabric give this midweight sweatshirt a blend of softness and durability. This blend of fabric is treated with Carhartt’s Rain Defender solution. This treatment makes this fabric impermeable. For those of you a little rusty on your biology, that means that this camouflage sweatshirt is waterproof and will also not allow water to pass through the exterior. Not only is this Carhartt sweatshirt water-resistant – it’s also very warm. Carhartt designed this camo sweatshirt with a jersey-lined three-piece hood. The contrasting orange jersey line provides extra insulation and also features a drawcord closure for those cold and rainy days. For added warmth, Carhartt included front handwarmer pocket. Adding warmth to a soft and durable waterproof material is a sensible thing to do. But Carhartt made this dark brown hoodie even more practical by constructing it with features that allow you to move freely. Carhartt did this by reinforcing the rib-knit cuffs and waistband with spandex. Rib-knit construction is commonly known to provide a flexible, comfortable, and snug fit, but with the addition of spandex, Carhartt bolstered the traditional rib-knit pattern. We did also mention that this is fashionable. Certainly that isn’t always priority number one, especially on the job. But this men’s outerwear features a contrasting Carhartt label sewn on the front handwarmer pocket. It also showcases Carhartt’s quilted Realtree Xtra camouflaged applique. This camouflage fabric is branded on the chest in with a unique “C” logo. This “C” logo is stitched to the chest with orange thread that compliments the contrasting orange jersey lining on the hood. So you’re not a NASCAR driver, professional golfer, tennis player, or an athlete in any other where they stop for rain. With that said, we advise you’re ready for the rain by having the appropriate clothing. This Carhartt Men’s 102275 201 Dark Brown Avondale Midweight Camo Water-Resistant Sweatshirt from Working Person’s Store falls into the category of rain-ready work clothing and is worth your consideration if you cannot simply break to escape mother nature.

Carhartt Clothing Men’s B194 DKB Dark Brown Duck Insulated Dungaree Work Pants

Carhartt Clothing Men’s B194 DKB Dark Brown Duck Insulated Dungaree Work Pants


Still wearing those pants to work that aren’t insulated, have rips all over them because they’re made of a lightweight fabric, and don’t fit comfortably? Pardon our French, but what the…Duck are you waiting for? Get a pair of Carhartt Men’s B194 DKB Dark Brown Cotton Duck Insulated Double Knee Dungaree Work Pants. Behind every hardworking man is an equally hardworking pair of work pants. Carhartt pants are designed to make your workday a bit easier to get through. Made of 12-ounce, heavyweight, 100% cotton sandstone duck, these dark brown dungaree can take the proverbial “lickin’ and keep on tickin’.” Cotton sandstone duck is an unbelievably strong fabric that resists tears, abrasions, snags, and basically last years without showing signs of aging. This fabric is micro-sanded to achieve a brushed look and then garment-washed with detergent and softeners to achieve a soft, “broken-in” feel. So while these cotton duck pants are extremely tough, they don’t feel tough against your skin.Have to work outside in the dead of winter even though the meteorologist is suggesting everyone stay inside? With these insulated pants, you’ll scoff at those who are afraid to take on the cold. 100% nylon lining is quilted to mid-weight polyester insulation. This insulation wraps your legs in a layer of constant warmth so you can get your job done while wearing these men’s pants, regardless of how low the temperature goes down. The nylon lining glides easily over your skin and feels smooth and soft.Designed to tackle the most physically demanding jobs, these Carhartt pants feature Chap style double-front panels, reinforced back pockets, and triple-stitched main seams for added durability. Double-front pants give you extra fabric panels in the area that tends to get the most wear and tear. Double knees will last one heck of a long time and have cleanout bottoms, so these dungaree pants are especially good if you have to work with knee pads. If you’ve gotten in the habit of trying to take your boots off with your feet instead of your hands, the leg openings have Cordura kick plates so you can pry those boots off more easily without wearing out your men’s Carhartt pants.Designed to be comfortable, these dark brown work pants sit slightly below the natural waist (so your belly can hang free instead of being strangled by fabric) and are cut with a full seat and thigh. You’ll appreciate the full seat and thigh when you’re trying to bend, reach, or stretch to get your job done. You might be a sentimental kind of guy, but it’s time to get rid of your torn, tired-looking, non-insulated work pants and get a pair of insualted pants you’d be proud to own and wear. The Carhartt Men’s B194 DKB Dark Brown Cotton Duck Insulated Double Knee Work Dungaree Pants are the perfect choice if you want workwear that makes you proud to put it on.Manufactured Sizes:Inseam: 28Waist: 32, 34, 36, 38, 40, 42, 44, 46Inseam: 30, 32Waist: 32, 34, 36, 38, 40, 42, 44, 46, 48, 50Inseam: 34Waist: 32, 34, 36, 38, 40, 42Inseam: 36Waist: 32, 34, 36, 38, 40, 42
