Why GoT Star Coster-Waldau was Booed Defending Season 8

The Game of Thrones, HBO’s series ran for almost 10 years but had an interesting outcome from the San Diego Comic-Con panel.

Nikolaj Coster-Waldau who portrayed Jaime Lannister on the series was a member of the discussion panel.  He defended his character’s death in Season 8, but fans were really upset.

The SDCC Director of Programming, Eddie Ibrahim opened the panel with a few remarks while encouraging the crowd to show respect even if they had different opinions regarding the end of Game of Thrones.

In 2019, he told the SDCC attendees that we can disagree sometimes but we do love the content that has brought to them and everyone loved the shows and the movies.

Unfortunately, that was not enough to fen off some fans from literally booing when the subject of the Lannister twins arose.  Coster-Waldau tried to address the fans regarding the fates of Jaime Lannister and Cersei Lannister at the panel to no avail.

He explained that the final moments in the Red Keep, during “The Bells” episode made absolute sense for their complicated relationship.

It Made Sense for the Characters

Coster-Waldau said he believed the ending was great.  He believed it was perfect for him to end in the arms of Cersei.  He also told the audience that it made perfect sense.

Shortly after his comment, some SDCC attendees started booing him because they were upset that Coster-Waldau could not offer better remarks on the showrunners’ decision for the ill-fated pair. A showrunner is a leading producer in a series.  In the U.S., they are often referred to as the executive producer.

The criticism of Coster-Waldau’s statements was followed by HBO’s last-minute panel lineup changes.  They announced earlier on that showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss would not be attending the SDCC 2019.  The Game of Thrones director Miguel Sapochnick and cast members Nathalie Emmanuel (Missandei) and Iain Glen (Jorah Mormont) would also not be attending.

Snapchat Challenging Netflix

Snapchat is taking on its rival services with a new feature which allows users to watch “Creator Shows’ original content. In case you don’t know about Original Shows, they are with celebrities and influencers like Arnold Schwarzenegger creating videos for Snapchat.

These videos are constructed and displayed inside the app as short, vertical original shows.   Arnold Schwarzenegger has a show called “ Rules of Success” with Arnold Schwarzenegger” which is made up of motivational words from the actor.

There is a new advancement making these shows available in a Nexflix-style.  At this time, the shows are integrated into the “Discover” section of the app, but according to Mashable, users will be able to swipe from the Discover page to access a dedicated “Shows” section on the app.

Cleaner and Shorter

Also, it seems cleaner than other parts of Snapchat making it much more comfortable for users streaming platforms such as Netflix or Amazon Prime. The layout is in a grid form which has shows you have recently watched and those you have subscribed to.

A spokesperson for Snapchat said the company is presently testing the feature but has not said when it will become fully available. Snapshot is currently pushing ahead with original content.

The new shows are targeting the majority under 34 Snapchat user base including a scripted drama called “Two Sides”. This show is about a teenage couple breaking up and then showing both sides of the argument at the same time.

New programs, documentaries, and comedies are also featured and the company who owns Snapchat said the time being spent watching these shows has literally tripled over the past year.

Judi Dench Defends The Work of Harvey Weinstein And Kevin Spacey

The 84-year-old Jude Dench came forward to defend the work of Kevin Spacey, Harvey Weinstein, and men like them as Weinstein’s sexual assault trial draws near. Though she doesn’t in any way condone sexual harassment, she believes viewers should still appreciate their life’s work – and she has quite a solid argument!

Dench spoke with Radio Times and appeared on the cover of its latest issue, saying that their work should not be tossed aside and unappreciated just because of accusations that have been brought against them. “What kind of agony is that?” she asked.

“Are we going to negate 10 years at the Old Vic [where Spacey once served as artistic director] and everything that he did? How wonderful he’s been in all those films? Are we just not going to see all those films that Harvey produced?” she continued.

You’d Have to Ban Caravaggio, Too

Dench worked with Weinstein multiple times, one of the most renown being the 1998 film Shakespeare in Love. She compared what happened to the 17th-century painter Caravaggio to the present-day situation. The man has sentenced Death on account of murder, yet his work is still venerated and hung in Roman churches and museums.

“You cannot deny somebody a talent,” Dench said. “You might as well never look at a Caravaggio painting. You might as well never have gone to see Noël Coward [the famous English playwright and actor accused of harassment].”

After The New York Times’ 2017 exposé that recorded nearly two decades of allegations of misconduct, almost 90 women came forward to accuse Weinstein of harassing, sexually assaulting, or raping them.

The charges he’s now facing are for two of those, one of which is an incident in which he allegedly forcibly performed oral sex on a woman in his New York apartment in 2006. The other is a 2013 altercation where he allegedly raped a woman in a New York hotel room. Weinstein, whose trial is expected to begin on September 9, has denied these allegations and pleaded not guilty

Will You Boycott Hoese Of Cards Because of This?

Spacey, the former House of Cards star, has been charged with the indecent assault and battery of an 18-year-old boy in July 2016, and he has also pleaded not guilty.

This is not the first of such accusations being made against him as in 1986, the actor Anthony Rapp, who was 14 at the time, claimed Spacey made sexual advances. Spacey didn’t remember such an encounter but apologized anyway.

With the #MeToo movement going strong, many men have faced accusations like these as well as much ridicule and criticism.

Yet, there are some defending men’s “freedom to pester” women. In France, for instance, one hundred women signed an open letter criticizing the #MeToo movement and the criticism men have had to deal with as a result.

Catherine Deneuve, a French movie star, gathered writers, businesswomen, academics, and performers to sign the letter, denouncing the “hatred of men and sexuality.” The letter was printed in the French newspaper Le Monde.

Netflix Genres Boring You? Open Them Up Today

Netflix is, easily, one of the most popular online platforms used today. Millions of users curl up in front of their TV to watch their on-demand shows, when they want. While some of us complain that Netflix has too much choice, some people find it hard to choose. For example, their genre selections are, at best, poor. You can find it hard to really dig into what you wish to watch, which soon becomes an exercise in frustration.

To solve that problem, we recommend that you take a look at this easy to use Netflix genre cracker. This opens up thousands of new genres to look through when searching for movies. If you are sick of the same old genres giving you eyebrow raising returns, you can use this simple solution to open up the floor to some far more interesting movie choices.

Making the most of Netflix

To start off with, thanks to What’s On Netflix for coming across this awesome little trick. You will need to use a variety of specific codes to open up Netflix much more, giving you much more control over what you watch.

For example, if you wanted to find something very particular, you can. Mad genres appear, like “Bellydancing” and even “Campy Chinese Movies” – they have a little hidden sub-category for any kind of movie that you can think of. To make this work, all you need to do is type in the following URL:

https://www.netflix.com/browse/genre/XXXX

All you need to do is swap out XXXX for the genre you wish to browse through, and voila. You can find all of the codes that you need online, making it easy to tap into over 70,000 hidden sub-genres. It’s very interesting, and makes it easy for you to make your Netflix experience a touch more specific.

Many of us spend hours just flicking through Netflix hoping to find something decent. With this, you make more or less certain that you can find something worth watching. However, opening up the floor so much will mean potentially making it even harder to choose. If you struggle to make a choice with the options already on Netflix, make sure you have a rough idea of the genre that you wish to watch.

Decision making falls through the floor when we have too many options, so try and limit in your mind the kind of movie youwish to watch. Then, start your browser search. If you go on with so many new options to pick from, you will likely just make what is already a hard choice even harder than it needs to be!

The Last Alaskans Back for Season 4. Why?

The Discovery Channel is at it again. After initial belief that the show might be canceled due to the death of one of its main stars, they’ve decided to bring back The Last Alaskans for season 4. It’s a docuseries about a group of “modern-day pioneers” who live in The Refuge, the largest protected wilderness in the U.S.

battling it to the end and give a chance for fans to say goodbye”

I don’t think it would be easy for me to watch the renewed series with the trust I had a few years ago. Now that we know of so many times the Discovery Channel was not straight with us and practically tricking us into believing that what we see on their shows is real.

This season we will meet Bob Harte again, but this time as a cancer patient who is, as Discovery describes it: ‘battling it to the end and give a chance for fans to say goodbye”. Bob grew on us in the last seasons, but following him to his death? Quite low in my world.

We will also meet a family who will try to survive it during winter in the refuge. They, of course, also have internal family disputes, for the enjoyment of the viewers. Another couple will bring their baby girl into the refuge and put her in danger to get their 15 minutes of fame. Isn’t that nice.
Another man we would be seeing is a guy who needs to save his family business which was almost completely destroyed during the summer fires.

And the truth?

they've decided to bring back The Last Alaskans for season 4.

That’s the main issue here. Discovery channel has not been straight with us on so many of their shows, such as Bear Grylls, Alaskan Bush People (Alaska again), Gold Rush and many more.
Why should we think that this show would be different? Would they really put a baby in danger with a chance to freeze or starve? I don’t think so.
So yes, these types of shows have a crowd, but please… how gullible does the Discovery channel think we are? Pretty much if they keep sending these shows our way.

5 Funny Tweets That Say ‘Clueless’ All Over Them

Well, no one ever said that ALL great minds think alike!  Couples are no exception when it comes to being on the same page at the same time. In an age of digital devices and high technology, some people just never really climbed on board.

Even the most successful relationships can have very funny moments that leave for more questions than answers. From looking up into the sky and asking if that’s Earth shining up there to confusing the sun with the moon!  It’s a fact that all relationships have their ups and downs but if you can laugh it off, you are by far the better person!

Organ “Donor”

When you’ve been brought up to believe that, if given the opportunity, the government will steal the gold right out of your mouth, it’s a little difficult to know where the line is drawn.  We’ve got to side with this guy, if for no other reason than his misunderstanding about organ donations.  He really did believe they could stop by one day and request an organ!  In self-defense, his lack of knowledge on the subject left him wanting to protect what is rightfully his!

Then Where Are You?

Some questions can be a little strange if the person asking is not familiar with a given subject but, in this case, it sounds like the girlfriend skipped her astronomy class in elementary school.  One night she gazed up into the sky, stared at a star, and asked her boyfriend if they were looking at planet Earth!  Well, if that’s the Earth, where the heck are the rest of us hanging out?

A Brown Cow

So, this woman goes for a walk, comes running back in a panic that she was being charged by an animal! Saying it looked like a cow but was black and white not brown, leaves us with several questions.  One, did she not learn anything about biology in school?  Two, did it ever dawn on her that just because it was not brown, it sure looked like a cow!  Lady, trust us – it’s a cow!

Plastic Love?

Ok, we realize some artificial plants look real but how many times would you water a plant and see the water just pouring through?  Well, Tweedledee and Tweedledum seem to be a perfect match!  Being told once would normally be enough, but three times?? Give me a break!

That Explains Why He Didn’t Pick Up

We all seem to take advantage of a world with cell phones that are at arm’s length.  This woman wanted to call her husband but overlooked one important fact.  He had told her he left his cell phone at home and asked her to bring it to him. Well, looks like she forgot the phone when she tried to call him.  We do applaud her for finding the humor in this faux pas and hopefully had a good laugh!

Will ‘Blade’ Be Back? Snipes Says So

As one of the most iconic actors of the 1990s and early 2000s, Wesley Snipes is a big name in the entertainment history of millions. From playing Marvel legend Blade to running around as the maniacal Simon Phoenix in Demolition Man, Snipes got around to quite incredible levels back in the day.

While he isn’t quite the mega star that he once was, Snipes is back in the big picture with the news that two new Blade projects are currently being worked upon. For those who loves these classic movies, you’ll be delighted to hear that Blade is on his way back – and seemingly ina big way.

Blade? Who’s That?

While I might die from shock that someone has not heard of Blade, he’s the exceptional vampire hunter who spends all his time wiping out these monsters. His mother, you see, was attacked by a vampire as she was giving birth to him, so, you know, natural hatred.

As you may have guessed, Blade is eventually turned into a vampire himself – though he uses a special serum to stop himself becoming a bloodsucker fully. Now, he hunts his new kin from the shadows, and the various media formats follow his story as he avenges his mother and keeps the public free from the vampires’ dominance.

What’s next for Blade then?

A hell of a lot, if you listen to Snipes talk about it, where he said: “There are a lot of conversations going around right now, and we’re very blessed to have the enthusiasm and interest in something from that world again.

“We’ve created two projects that fit perfectly into this world, and when people see them, I think they’re only going to have a problem with deciding which one they love most,”

However, is a world where Marvel moves have come so chromatic and colorful – and full of character development that can often be one-track due to the size of the cast – the right place to house someone as dark and as serious as Blade?

Fear not, as the hunter himself says that Marvel “gets it…the next time you see something in [the Blade universe], mark my words: what we did before is child’s play compared to what we can do now.”

That sounds pretty damn interesting. The original Blade movies rank up there as some of the best around: the idea that they could be coming back and better than ever before is just so exciting. Who knows? It might be a good chance for Marvel to try out something a bit more ambitious when it comes to a more serious, adult tone to their movies.

If they ever try and make up for the abomination that is the new Venom movie, then this would serve as a good way to create a more visceral kind of superhero movie. Either way, it won’t be too long – hopefully – until we see Wesley Snipes taking people to the cleaners again, blade in hand.

Soon On Netflix: “Choose Your Ending”

Isn’t this exciting? Netflix users may soon have more customizable features on their subscription. We hear that you may be able to determine how your favorite shows end. This new feature is expected to be rolled out with new seasons of shows such as Black Mirror, and other interesting presentations. By allowing subscribers to choose their preferred adventure storyline, users have an opportunity to experience an ending that makes them happy.

Netflix has been around for many years. The service started as a direct mail entertainment platform where you could rent DVDs. Later, the platform was enhanced to become a streaming service which featured the popular TV shows and recent movies. Now, Netflix is leading others in a new direction. In recent years, the company has been focused on developing original content for its subscribers.

The availability of new TV shows exclusive to Netflix gives subscribers a premium service. For a monthly fee, you can have unlimited access to complete seasons of shows. This feature is mostly celebrated by subscribers who enjoy binge-watching their favorite TV shows. The idea to become an original content creator for TV and entertainment has led to remarkable success. The polls indicate that many subscribers are happy with the unlimited access they have to new TV shows and movies that seem different from others productions.

Now, we hear about a more interactive experience on Netflix. Everyone is excited about this news. The first test for this new feature was done with the children’s show- Puss in Book. Children could select their preferred storyline.

Netflix has decided to give this new feature a trial with Black Mirror, a sci-fi based TV series that has captivated the attention of a large audience. On one episode of Black Mirror, subscribers will be able to choose how the story ends.

So many companies have been exploring the idea of starting interactive TV shows. It gets even more interesting when you think about these features used for the movies. While we know there may be so many secret projects by other companies. Netflix is the first company to announce its decision to introduce this feature in a TV show for adults. There may, however, be some challenges.

It is expected that such elaborate TV shows will require more work during production. This means more financial investment and labour costs. There may be a limitation to the available choices the viewers can select for particular TV shows. Overall, the introduction of this new feature is going to require more funding for movies and TV shows. From this perspective, we are hopeful that the new feature will be successful to make more profits that can cover additional costs.

If Netflix gets it right, there will surely be an increase in the number of its subscribers. It will also mark the transition of the video streaming business to a new and better level. The goal of Netflix is to keep you entertained. It has become crucial to achieve this goal because of the rise in competition in this area. We have seen the aggressive campaigns done by other similar companies such as Hulu, and YouTube.

Amy Winehouse (Hologram) Back On Tour

It’s been seven years since she was found dead but we will soon be able to hear and see her again on stage. Kind of creepy in my opinion.
A company called Base Hologram has announced a partnership with Winehouse’s estate to go on tour in order “to celebrate the singer’s legacy.” Many have voiced their concerns about exploiting her name and music and think she should be left alone.

Winehouse died of alcohol poisoning in 2011 when she was only 27. This spiked other mythical rumors about the famous “27 death club” in which many famous artists died at that age. The company Base says that it’s “the leading live entertainment content creator leveraging holographic film technology to produce live entertainment tours and attractions worldwide.”

A statement the company issued said that “Utilizing new state-of-the-art proprietary technology, the production will launch towards the end of 2019. Featuring digitally remastered arrangements of her classics, the hologram will be backed by a live band, singers and theatrical stagecraft.”

Her father said that it’s a dream come true for the family; “To see her perform again is something special that really can’t be put into words. Our daughter’s music touched the lives of millions of people and it means everything that her legacy will continue in this innovative and groundbreaking way.”

The tour was announced at the Amy Winehouse Foundation’s annual gala in London. The foundation wants to prevent the effects of drug and alcohol misuse among young people. They plan on gaining more help and recognition via the world tour.

It’s not the first time a celeb was “revived” through a hologram. Michael Jackson and Tupac have performed on stage after their untimely deaths.

Netflix Announce ‘Avatar: The Last Airbender’ Live-Action Series

A live-action series based on Nickelodeon’s beloved cartoon Avatar: The Last Airbender is in development at Netflix, the streaming service announced.

After the favorite anime-inspired series hit theaters in a live-action flop, it seems Netflix will try to work its magic on the epic series. According to the company’s See What’s Next account on Twitter, the streaming service is working on a “reimagined” take on Aang’s story.

Co-creators Michael Dante DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko will return to oversee the live-action series. The pair said in a statement:

“We’re thrilled for the opportunity to helm this live-action adaptation of Avatar: The Last Airbender,” the pair said in a press release. “We can’t wait to realize Aang’s world as cinematically as we always imagined it to be, and with a culturally appropriate, non-whitewashed cast. It’s a once-in-a-lifetime chance to build upon everyone’s great work on the original animated series and go even deeper into the characters, story, action, and world-building.”

While production won’t begin until 2019, for now, we’ve got some concept art that depicts the protagonist with Appa, the six-legged flying bison who Aang and his friends ride as they travel around the world on their quest.

Bruno Mars Set to Play Prince

As one of the most iconic musicians of all-time, the passing of Prince naturally hit the creative world hard. Since his death, we’ve seen multiple nods and tributes to one of music’ most beloved participants. However, one of the most exciting creations to do with Prince – a biopic – might have secured a fantastic stand-in for the legend: Bruno Mars.

Mars, 32, is being linked with taking on the role of Prince in a biopic being put together by Netflix. This interesting new program would take a full look at the life of Prince, and try to do the legend some justice. Mars himself sang Purple Rain at the US Grammy Awards, and it went down like a house on fire. According to sources at Netflix, then, it’s likely that he’ll take part in the role – despite it likely being among the most challenging roles he’s ever taken on.

If you have watched Mars perform for even a few moments, you’ll see the immediate influence Prince had on his style. A passionate lover of acting, despite having little to no experience, it would be a fine opportunity for him to work his way into a new kind of showbiz at the same time as do his idol some justice.

While it would be his acting debut, the hope is that he will accept. Seen as a great stand-in with his natural charisma and talent, Mars would offer a fine portrayal of Prince.

Prince died aged 57 from what has been described as an ‘accidental overdose’ in 2016. Found dead in his Paisley Park home on April 21st, the two years that have come since have been used to try find the perfect way to portray what was such an energizing life.

Too much too soon?

Naturally, the role would be a big one to try and fill for Mars. With a distinct lack of acting experience, it would be a major role to try and take on so early in his acting career. However, as someone who carries that same soulful charm as Prince, and being a wonderfully talented musician himself, it would make up for any lack of acting expertise.

While some would perhaps prefer an actor to play Prince in a biopic, the musical skills and natural flair of Mars would likely make him the ideal candidate. Would you be happy with Bruno Mars as the person to play Prince? Or would you rather an actor with more experience in playing a role in a biopic?

Henry Cavill Reportedly Out As Superman

Bad news Henry Cavill fans: The British actor’s tenure as the Man of Steel has reportedly come to an end.

It was reported by The Hollywood Reporter that Henry Cavill would be leaving his role as Superman after talks with the Warner Bros. broke down. The actor has played the iconic DC comics character in three films of the cinematic universe, Man of Steel (2013), Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016), and Justice League (2017). The actor was expected to appear in a cameo role in the upcoming superhero movie Shazam!, however, scheduling conflicts prevented this from happening.

The same source told The Hollywood Reporter, “Superman is like James Bond, and after a certain run you have to look at new actors.” Warner Bros. is eager to “reset” the under-performing franchise, according to the source.

The actor has since responded cryptically on his Instagram page in a video post showing him staring with a stony expression at the camera while lifting a Superman figure into view and then moving it back down out of the shot. “The Blue Danube” waltz, sung by barking dogs, plays over the short clip with Cavill sporting a “Krypton Lifting Team” T-shirt.

Today was exciting #Superman

A post shared by Henry Cavill (@henrycavill) on

A representative for Warner soon released a statement stating that no decision had been made yet. “While no decisions have been made regarding any upcoming Superman films, we’ve always had great respect for and a great relationship with Henry Cavill, and that remains unchanged,” they said.

Cavill’s manager, Dany Garcia, also responded to the news through Twitter, writing, “Be peaceful, the cape is still in his closet. Warner has been and continues to be our partners as they evolve the DC Universe.”

The initial report claimed that the breakdown in talks was in part due to the studio’s plan to focus on Supergirl rather than Superman, with the former’s origin story featuring the last son of Krypton as an infant due to the timeline of the story. This suggests Cavill would not have made an appearance in any Supergirl film.

If the rumors do stack up and Cavill leaves the role, it would mark the second high-profile exit from the Warner Bros. franchise after Ben Affleck vacated his role as Batman. The rest of the Justice League will reprise their roles, however. Gal Gadot will return for Wonder Woman 1984, set for theaters in November 2019; Jason Momoa will headline a solo Aquaman movie this December; and Ezra Miller is set to star in a Flash movie, which is due to shoot in early 2019.

Cavill recently starred as the antagonist in Mission: Impossible – Fallout opposite Tom Cruise. He has also been cast as Geralt of Rivia in big-budget Netflix television series The Witcher (an adaptation of the cult fantasy books and video game series).

Deadline reports that Warner Bros. “has been mulling a completely different direction with its Superman canon for some time.” The studio is reportedly considering a future in which Black Panther star Michael B. Jordan could play the famous Kryptonian. Actress Kat Graham, of The Vampire Diaries fame, added her support telling TMZ it’s time for Kal-El to be played by a black, Latino or Asian actor.

4 Netflix Originals You Will Probably Binge In 2019

For some time now, it’s been easy to see Netflix as one of the most exciting names in the entertainment industry. Forever producing amazing new content from their own studio, Netflix has far moved on from being a depository to watch on-demand TV as and when you wish. With a studio cranking out some truly tremendous content for 2019 and beyond, what can we expect from Netflix in the near future?

Central Park 5

This will especially be interesting to those of a political mindset. It’s built around the story of the Central Park Five; all sentenced to years in jail for attempted murder. Exonerated following confession, this TV series – directed by Ava DuVernay – is putting together a tremendous looking drama that shines a light on the sordid story that took place here.

This four-episode series is well worth looking out for, especially thanks to a certain someone’ proclamations about the case.

The Last Dance

Another interesting TV series about to come to Netflix is based around basketball star Michael Jordan. It’s going to focus on the basketball legend, who became a legend of competitive sport with his performances for the Chicago Bulls back in the day.

It’s going to be taken on by the excellent Jason Hehir, so we can expect that this will be able to make a positive story come to life. Jordan is easily one of the most influential sportsmen of the modern era, and is a wonderful example of what can be achieved.

Jinn

Cashing in on the substantial love for the supernatural at the moment, 2019’ Jinn is going to really tap into that in the right way. It’s six episodes long, and is going to focus on a group of teenagers who want to try and stop the spirit, Jinn, from being able to wipe out the planet.

It sounds very interesting, and with Mir-Jean Bou Chaaya behind it, it’s likely to be very fun for all of those looking to see what it has to bring to the table. Definitely worth your time if you are looking for a new supernatural show to enjoy.

The Umbrella Academy

Set in the world made up by My Chemical Romance singer Gerard Way, The Umbrella Academy is another comic book adaption turned ‘real’. It’s based around an America where JFK is never gunned down, and it’s going to star some pretty big names in it like Ellen Page and Mary J. Blige. It’s sure to be exciting and if you ever spent any time reading the comic book series then you’ll realise just why there is so much excitement around this at the moment.

It’s going to be arriving in 2019, and is written and produced by Steve Blackman. Definitely one to keep an eye out for.

So, what are you most excited by? With so many interesting stories set to be on their way to Netflix, what will you be looking to add to the list of shows that you presently watch?

Final Doom 2 Secret Discovered After 24 Years

After 24 years of blasting demons, one fan has unlocked the final secret of the 1994 video game, Doom II.

Doom II: Hell on Earth, originally released on MS-DOS on 30 September 1994,  followed up to its namesake predecessor Doom to become one of the most successful games of the decade. The highly rated sequel helped establish the long-lasting legacy of the popular video game series. The second installment takes the protagonist, the aptly named “Doomguy”, from Mars to the apocalyptic regions of Earth. Doom II was bigger and bloodier than the original and remains one of the progenitors of the first person shooter genre.

For the first time in game’s history, gamers can celebrate 100% completion of the game without any mods or cheats all thanks to YouTuber Zero Master. John Romero, co-creator of the Doom series, confirmed through a Tweet that the door to the game’s final secret had indeed finally been unlocked. He offered his congratulations and then explained how it can be achieved.

Since the game’s debut all those years ago, fans the last of the 10 secret areas found in the game’s Industrial Zone was a hot topic among fans. Although fans were able to uncover the secret, activating it proved challenging without using cheat codes. According to both Zero Master and Romero, in order to activate the final secret, Doomguy needs to be pushed into the teleporter by an enemy. As the video demonstrates, Zero Master managed to activate the secret following a cat and mouse chase as they used a Pain Elemental enemy to nudge themselves to the teleporter.

Many Doom experts had long considered the secret to be a glitch in the game’s code as nobody was able to unlock it for so long. Romero, however, clearly pointed out that he had always known how to unlock the final piece of this head-scratching puzzle in the game’s 15th level and simply waited until someone figured it out.

In an age where gamers are used to exploring every nook and cranny of a video game in order to collect every last trophy and easter egg, waiting over two decades to find a game’s last secret is truly a noteworthy feat. Whether by chance or by process of elimination, Zero Master can proudly claim the title of being the person to ever complete Doom II as it was intended.
