Resident Evil 3 Mod Gives Nemesis a Beach Thong

The Resident Evil 3 remake may not be officially out until April 3, but that hasn’t stopped enterprising modders from giving us what we’ve wanted all along: Nemesis in an Umbrella-branded beach thong.

First spotted by Eurogamer, a Patreon-backed modder by the name of Marcos RC is responsible for this new abomination. As if Resident Evil 3’s iconic undead, invincible boss wasn’t already bad enough, we now get to see him stomping around the streets of Raccoon City all half-naked. You can watch Marcos RC’s video on his YouTube channel, or check out screenshots below.

The mod is officially called the “Beachboy Nemesis” mod, with a 3D body base created by “MisterHecks.” You can download the mod from Marcos RC’s Patreon page here. Could you imagine how horrifying this would be with the first-person Resident Evil 3 mod?

Sexy Nemesis mods are all we get for now, since Capcom recently delayed the Resident Evil Resistance beta on PS4 and Steam, with the Xbox One version rolling along as originally planned. Capcom has also warned that physical editions of Resident Evil 3 may be delayed in Europe thanks to COVID-19 impacting shipping infrastructure.

MisterHecks, who created the Nemesis model that Marcos RC utilized, similarly made a thong mod for Mr. X in the Resident Evil 2 remake.

Call of Duty Datamine Reveals Possible Modern Warfare 2 Remaster Release Plans

In what seems to be becoming a regular thing, a well-known dataminer, Senescallo, leaked a bunch of upcoming Call of Duty content on Reddit, revealing plans for the rumored Modern Warfare 2 Remaster, along with details on new maps and weapons that are headed to Modern Warfare (you know, the latest one) Season 3. Perhaps the biggest bit of information revealed by the Call of Duty leak seems to indicate that the highly anticipated Modern Warfare 2 Remaster could be sold from within Modern Warfare (2019) and as a standalone game. Further, spotted by Eurogamer, the Reddit leak indicates that Activision only plans to remaster the Modern Warfare 2 campaign, not the multiplayer. [widget path="global/article/imagegallery" parameters="albumSlug=every-ign-call-of-duty-review&captions=true"] Based on the leak, players will be able to purchase the remaster as a standalone game and will receive the Underwater Demo Team Classic Ghost Bundle with their purchase. Alternatively, players could purchase the Ghost Pack: Oil Rig Bundle from within Modern Warfare to receive the MW2 campaign remaster, a legendary skin for Ghost, weapon blueprints for the M4A1 and 1911, and a few other commodities. Purchasing the Modern Warfare 2 Remaster from within Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is expected to cost 10,000 COD points, which comes out to about $80. It's currently unclear how much the standalone version would cost. [ignvideo url="https://www.ign.com/videos/call-of-duty-warzone-isnt-just-a-battle-royal"] Remaster's aside, the leak also revealed some information about Modern Warfare Season 3, which is expected to release in the coming weeks. It seems that two maps from previous titles will be making a return to the franchise in the third season — Backlot (Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare) and Village (Modern Warfare 3). [caption id="attachment_232761" align="alignnone" width="720"]village Source: Reddit user Senescallo[/caption] [caption id="attachment_232761" align="alignnone" width="720"]backlot Source: Reddit user Senescallo[/caption]   Additionally, an SKS Sniper and a Renetti Pistol are likely two be added along with two new Operators, Alex and Ronin. Lastly, Season 3 could be receiving creator codes, which would allow players to support their favorite Call of Duty creator with any in-game purchases. Activision and Infinity Ward have yet to confirm any of this, so of course take it all with a grain of salt. Developers recently launched Warzone, the highly anticipated battle royale mode, which hit 6 million players in the first 24 hours. While it's gotten off to a great start, we think Warzone is imbalanced in one specific way. For more on Warzone, be sure to check out our review.

Final Fantasy 7 Remake Street Date Broken, Square Enix Issues Warning

The Final Fantasy 7 Remake is just around the corner, with an official release date of April 10. Some people just can’t wait, however, and have broken the street date, according to Eurogamer. Square Enix has also issued a warning, saying it can’t control when the game is released in western regions because of the various COVID-19 lockdowns.

“As you will be aware, many countries are limiting entry or closing their national and state borders and restricting the distribution and delivery of non-essential items,” Square Enix wrote in a blog post. “Understandably these restrictions are being implemented so that essential items can reach their destination as fast as possible. This does not mean that box copies of Final Fantasy 7 Remake will not be dispatched, it just means that we cannot control the date the game may arrive.”

[ignvideo url="https://www.ign.com/videos/2020/03/23/final-fantasy-7-remake-producer-tries-to-explain-why-its-episodic-ign-now"]

Square Enix added that it is taking steps to ensure that pre-orders of Final Fantasy 7 Remake made through the Square Enix store will reach customers by April 10.

Meanwhile, with some people breaking street date on Final Fantasy 7 Remake, pictures have begun appearing online of the final product.

[widget path="global/article/imagegallery" parameters="albumSlug=final-fantasy-7-remake-29-new-wall-market-screenshots&captions=true"]

One Reddit user by the name of NateLo22 posted to the r/FFVIIRemake subreddit with a picture of the deluxe edition of the game and its packaging.

[caption id="attachment_2327575" align="alignnone" width="720"]final fantasy 7 deluxe edition leaked on Reddit Source: Reddit user NateLo22[/caption] Square Enix isn’t the only company facing some difficulties in getting their game to ship out in an orderly fashion. Resident Evil 3 remake developer Capcom said the game could experience a delay in Europe before its April 3 release date.

Shrek was Inspired By Chris Farley and David Spade

Though it may be (mostly) common knowledge that Chris Farley was originally cast as the voice of Shrek, Tommy Boy director Peter Segal recently spoke to Uproxx about how the DreamWorks Animation blockbuster, which spawned three hit sequels, was explicitly based on Farley's chemistry with best friend and Tommy Boy co-star David Spade. "After Tommy Boy, we got a lot of offers to do things together," Segal said, "and I of course was dying to find another project for us. Because, again, I took the leap of faith with him after working on two different television projects with him before Tommy Boy. And then, I did offer him a couple of things. He, by the way, almost did Shrek." Farley actually recorded some dialogue for Shrek prior to his death in 1997. He was, of course, replaced by fellow SNL alum Mike Myers, and the rest is Scottish-accented history. Segal added "Terry Rossio and Ted Elliot, who wrote Shrek, I met with them years after Shrek came out and they said, ‘You know who we patterned the donkey and the ogre off of? As far as their relationship? That was Spade and Farley in Tommy Boy. That’s why we wanted Farley." [ignvideo url="https://www.ign.com/videos/2020/03/27/the-best-games-to-play-when-stuck-at-home"] Given that Shrek was such a massive money-maker, and that Myers and Eddie Murphy's voices are etched in history as Shrek and Donkey, it's hard to imagine a Farley-style Shrek with a Spade-type Donkey. But it works if you consider the two of them swapping the role of "hyperactive character who annoys the glum character."

Check Out What’s New to Amazon Video This April

Amazon Prime Video is dropping the sixth season of its popular crime drama, Bosch, starring Titus Welliver as the titular Los Angeles detective. In Season 6, Bosch must investigate the murder of a medical physicist and the whereabouts of some radioactive material that's gone missing. Amazon recently announced that the long-running series will come to end after the conclusion of its seventh season, which will premiere in 2021. On the movie front, the streamer is adding The Lighthouse, starring Robert Pattinson and Willem Dafoe. In our review of The Lighthouse, we say, "Robert Eggers’ sophomore effort should do for remote lighthouses what The Shining did for remote hotels, the film being less a battle of wits, and more a question of who will lose their wits first." If you're not a Prime member, you can sign up for a 30-day free Amazon Prime trial and reap all the benefits, including streaming Amazon Video. That means you have the opportunity to check out every new video this month without having to pay for it.

Netflix’s Dragon’s Lair: Ryan Reynolds In Talks to Star in Video Game Movie

Netflix is adapting another iconic video game franchise, with none other than Ryan Reynolds in talks to star in and produce a live-action film adaptation of Dragon's Lair. First revealed by The Hollywood Reporter and then confirmed by Netflix's Twitter account, Reynolds is in talks to star as hero knight Dirk the Daring, the hero charged with rescuing Princess Daphne from a vicious dragon. This news comes hours after Netflix officially announced its Castlevania animated series is getting a fourth season. [widget path="global/article/imagegallery" parameters="albumSlug=every-video-game-movie-in-development-almost&captions=true"] Assuming a deal is finalized, Reynolds will produce the movie through his company Maximum Effort. The movie will also be produced by Vertigo Entertainment's Roy Lee and Underground Films' Trevor Engelson, along with Don Bluth, Gary Goldman and Jon Pomeroy. Originally created by Bluth and Rick Dyer, Dragon's Lair first debuted in video arcades in 1983. Despite its limited interactivity, Dragon's Lair was notable for taking advantage of Laserdisc technology and featuring far more detailed sprite graphics than most games of the time. Dragon's Lair has been ported (with varying degrees of success) to numerous home consoles over the years, including recent ports for the Nintendo Switch, Xbox One and Playstation 4. The game also boosted the popularity of both Bluth and Goldman, who eventually went on to lead the creation of films like Secret of NIMH, An American Tail, All Dogs Go to Heaven, The Land Before Time, and Anastasia. This isn't the first attempt to adapt Dragon's Lair to other media. ABC aired a short-lived Dragon's Lair animated series in 1984, and CrossGen published a comic book adaptation in 2003. Bluth and Goldman previously ran a Kickstarter campaign in 2015 aimed at funding a short proof-of-concept teaser for a Dragon's Lair animated movie. While that campaign failed, the duo were successful after shifting the campaign to Indiegogo. However, it appears that animated adaptation has been repalced by a live-action treatment instead. Given the nature of the original game and Netflix's previous experiments with interactive programming like Black Mirror: Bandersnatch, we could easily see Dragon's Lair being developed as an interactive movie. [ignvideo url="https://www.ign.com/videos/2015/11/01/is-there-enough-interest-to-fund-a-dragons-lair-movie-game-scoop"] Do you think Reynolds is the right choice for Dragon's Lair? Do you want the movie to have an interactive component? Let us know what you think in the comments below. Be sure to check out our breakdown of all the video game movies currently in development and get the latest update on when the perpetually troubled Uncharted movie will resume production.

Jared Leto Dressed Up as Joe Exotic to Host a Tiger King Viewing Party

Jared Leto made the most of his Thursday night by dressing up as Joe Exotic, a central figure in the Netflix True-crime documentary Tiger King, which Leto was hosting a viewing for on Twitter. Leto announced Wednesday afternoon that he would be hosting a Tiger King viewing party that night at 6 p.m. PDT on Twitter. The tweet came with a picture of Leto's face edited onto Joe Exotic, who is the subject of the documentary miniseries and the most-watched program of the day on Netflix in the United States. The series focuses on an eccentric man who bought an Oklahoma horse farm in the 90s and converted it into a zoo. The Netflix Twitter account clarified 30 minutes before the event began that it would be a viewing party of just the first episode.

leto 1

  Leto posted his first tweet one minute before the 6 p.m. start time. "Got my popcorn. Pressing play on #TigerKing Episode 1. Let’s do this @Netflix #JaredLetoCinemaClub," Leto wrote. An image accompanying the tweet showed Leto in a colorful collared shirt in the essence of the flamboyant subject of the documentary. Instead of a real tiger, Leto has what looks like a stuffed animal bracelet.

  Leto then says in a follow-up tweet that he's already seen the entire series and promises viewers a wild "ride." In his next two tweets, he thanked Netflix "for keeping us entertained during this challenging time" and thanked Joe "for keeping fringe alive."

The multi-hyphenate consistently commented on the wardrobe of the people in the documentary and found a striking comparison between a shirt that he previously wore and a shirt that somebody wears in the show.

Leto tweeted throughout the episode and ended his viewing party with more praise for the Netflix miniseries.

"Wow. Mind blown again - end of episode one," Leto wrote. "Masterful direction and great job to all involved with the production!!!"

[ignvideo url="https://www.ign.com/videos/2020/03/26/new-to-netflix-for-april-2020"]

Tiger King consists of seven episodes running 40-50 minutes each and was released on March 20 on Netflix. IGN's review of the series calls it "a fascinating and depressing look inside a community of big cat fanatics." Kate McKinnon is starring in a scripted miniseries based on Joe Exotic's story, and Dax Shepard and Edward Norton are fan-casting themselves as Joe Exotic.

For those that have seen the series, here is what the subjects of the series are doing today. Leto was also in the news himself recently after finding out about the coronavirus way later than most people.
