Supposedly for some people, when they tell a lie, they experience what’s called The Pinocchio Effect. “According to Science Daily, whenever someone tells lies, the temperature around their nose and in the orbital muscle in the inner corner of their eye will increase.” (Quote Source)
Last year around this time, Scarlet Moon Records released a special Halloween-themed album featuring a mix of video game covers, and said they planned to make it an annual tradition. They kept to their word — Scarlet Moon Halloween Volume II has now been released on all storefronts.
It’s too bad there doesn’t appear to be a trailer for Open, the half-musical comedy, half-thriller from Virgil Films coming to theaters and streaming next month. From the description we received today, it sounds like a wild one.
After receiving my demo copy of Don’t Play This Game for review and reading the rules, I was keen to jump into a solo TTRPG. This would be my first foray into the solo role-playing genre. I had played Fighting Fantasy books when I was younger, and I am not sure if they count.
“Argylle is probably one of the most ambitious spy action comedies ever made because of its ensemble cast. Actor Matthew Vaughn steps behind the camera to direct this fascinating movie that proves more than ever that Henry Cavill should be playing James Bond. The film stars Bryce Dallas Howard, Henry Cavill, Bryan Cranston, Sam Rockwell, Katherine O’Hara,Sofia Boutela, Dua Lipa, Ariana DeBose, Samuel L. Jacksonà, and John Cena. Universal Pictures hit the jackpot with this movie. The action and comedy had me watch the trailer over and over again.
“May December” is probably the most controversial movie role Natalie Portman has ever accepted. The movie tackles a forbidden issue that is very common in American schools, next to school shootings and bullying. One of the biggest problems in the U.S. is extramarital affairs between teachers and underage students. There’s always news about a teacher being arrested for having romantic relations with their students. Teachers are figures of authority. Parents trust them to be guardians outside the household for their sons and daughters. So a teacher must not abuse their authority.
It was six years ago when The Walt Disney Company first announced it was absorbing 20th Century Fox (now 20th Century Studios), and one major motive for that purchase was blatantly obvious: Disney only partially owned the movie rights to the Marvel catalogue. Marvel had given the X-Men away to Fox (as well as the Fantastic Four) and buying the studio outright would mean Disney owned the concept of a mutant again, and wouldn’t have to keep pushing “Inhumans” as a thing.
Developer Relative Games’ customizable shmup, CounterAttack Uprising, was originally a PC exclusive when it launched in 2019.

He is Psychometric is about a person who is psychometric, i.e. he has the ability to analyze a person or an object by touching them and can see the past. Such a gift comes in handy for police detectives and prosecutors who are trying to solve crimes. Lee Ahn has this gift, although he wonders why he has “the ability to read peoples’ pasts”. Logically … ??? … “Isn’t seeing the future better?” When he was about 8 years old, he realized he was able to touch a person or an object and see the past. As a child, it frightened him, but as he got older he began to accept that this ability might be a good thing.
