What's On The Exam Table?

In gaming, October brings another batch of games to Xbox Games with Gold and PlayStation Plus. EA Play gets an official release date on Game Pass, but will the Xbox Series X have enough internal storage to download these games with a total of 802 gb? PS5 might even have less with a rumored 664gb of storage. PSN temporarily gave out Bloodborne for free. Insomniac gives the 2018 Spider-Man Remaster a facelift. Yakuza Like A Dragon gets delayed, but only on PlayStation 5. Godfall won’t be playable offline.

In tv and movie news, we give new releases for October on the big streaming services. Cobra Kai gets a teaser for season 3 and renewal for season 4 while GLOW gets cancelled on Netflix. CBS All Access plans a rebranding as Paramount Plus. Miramax plans a tv series for The Gentlemen and Mimic. Monster Hunter gets a teaser and early release in December, after being delayed to 2021. Avatar 2 and 3 are almost complete, just ask Arnold Schwartzenegger. M. Knight Shyamalan reveals the title of his new movie. Amazon’s Lord of the Rings series resumes in New Zealand. Jamie Foxx sparks attention with his return to Marvel as Electro. Ms. Marvel casts Iman Vellani as the lead. Meanwhile, Disney announced a live-action The Lion King sequel. Disney Plus adds group viewing to the service and D23 gets a 2022 schedule. Lastly, could Regal be shutting down theaters in the U.S. after plans to close in the U.K.? WB certainly doesn’t plan to wait and see. Dune and The Batman have already been delayed into the next 2 years.

In trailers, we talk about Borat 2 soon to be  on Amazon Prime, The Witches hitting HBO Max on October 22, and the Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War Zombies reveal trailer.

In reviews, we revisit Jurassic Park in the DLC for Jurassic World Evolution. Give our final thoughts on Brave New World, a Peacock Original. Check into a 1940s asylum with Netflix’s Ratched. We also headed down to South Park for the Pandemic Special. Lastly, Steven watched an anime film on Netflix called A Whisker Away. Yes, it involves a cat premise.
