Is the Disney Plus free trial available in 2022?

Once upon a time, Disney Plus allowed new subscribers to try out the streaming service for a whole week. Unfortunately, our happy ending ended pretty quickly and there is currently no free Disney Plus trial for potential new customers who want to experience a treasure trove of content from Walt Disney Studios and its partners including National Geographic, Marvel and Star Wars.

Cloudflare cut off this phishing platform as a service, so it moved to Russia

Phishing-as-a-service (PhaaS) platform Robin Banks moved its infrastructure to a “famous Russian provider” that was rarely subject to ethics or takedown requests after being launched by a US-based CDN provider (opens in a new tab) Cloudflare in July 2022.

Continental on Peacock: Everything We Know So Far

Information key

– It is expected to be launched on Peacock in 2023
– Prequel to the John Wick film series
– The first season consists of three 90-minute episodes
– Focuses on the young version of Winston Ian McShane
– It is believed that the action takes place in the 1970s
– Chris Collins stars as showrunner
– Keanu Reeves among the show’s executive producers

The Continental Hotel will soon reopen its doors to fans of the fan-favorite John Wick film franchise. The series, starring beloved actor Keanu Reeves as a cult killer pushed out of retirement in search of revenge, was only supposed to be one movie. However, the John Wick universe now has three chapters, with two more on the way. Not only that, but we’re also getting a prequel to the John Wick TV series, tentatively titled The Continental, coming to Peacock, NBC Universal streaming platform.

Continental is the foundation of the franchise; a chain of hotels around the world that offer neutral territory for members of the criminal underworld, such as hit men like Wick, to do business or hide from the authorities. If you are staying at the Continental Hotel, you must follow the rules. While we know the man himself didn’t follow them in John Wick Chapter 2 – but let’s not get into that now.

Xbox VR: Everything you need to know

Will Microsoft ever make an official Xbox VR headset? It’s a question everyone’s been asking since the release of Sony’s PSVR, but so far the Redmond-based company has been reluctant to enter the realm of console-based virtual reality.

However, it is clear that VR is not a passing fad. Meta Quest 2 (formerly known as Oculus Quest 2) is one of the most affordable and best VR goggles on the market. Elsewhere, Sony has doubled its commitment to virtual reality with PSVR 2 – PSVR’s next-gen successor, a new VR headset for the PS5.

The God of War Ragnarok Leviathan Ax makes great use of this DualSense feature

God of War Ragnarok offers some of the most extensive accessibility features of any big-budget game of its type, including one much-requested feature that was missing from the previous title. The full list of more than 70 customizable accessibility settings has been revealed by Sony Santa Monica, though “Motion Sensor Feature Aiming Activation” stands out. Motion-controlled Leviathan Ax? Yes please.

This switchable function for God of War Ragnarok on PS5 means players will be able to use the Dualsense motion sensor to perform actions such as throwing Kratos’ Leviathan axe. Not only is this an accessibility win, but it also adds a new dimension to solving various in-game challenges in a more immersive way than simply aiming your chopsticks.

Sony gives you fine control over this feature, giving you advanced horizontal and vertical speed tracking options when aiming, with a sensitivity slider ranging from 0.1 to 3.0. This will measure the in-game camera movement, with lower numbers indicating slower reaction from behind Kratos. This also applies to acceleration; there is a zero-to-10 slider and the ability to reduce smaller movements with its own dedicated zero-to-30 slider that is calculated in degrees per second, which can help mitigate unwanted random movements.

God of War Ragnarok features plenty of tricky puzzles that require Kratos to throw his ax at targets, chains, and switches – many of which are time trials. It may take more than a few tries to get it right. If you’re looking for a new way to interact with the game world, or if you think sticks aren’t ideal when time is of the essence.
