Tarantino Critic Flick, MetaHumans, and Swatting?

Swatting is an awful thing and while it’s nice to hear that there’s some closure for the first bit of news today, it’s still a somber revelation that the worst in gaming improves slowly, if at all. I also snuck in a link to A.O. Scott’s farewell to film criticism amidst a small opinion piece discussing recent Tarantino news. The Metahumans thing is pretty cool.

Well, there you have it – a bite-sized look at the news from yesterday that we here at After the Hype found important. I don’t suppose you have thoughts on any of these stories, do you? Because if you did I would like to recommend you let us know over at our discord. Similarly, if you’ve found some interesting news in the wild that you would like us to share tomorrow, let us know sooner rather than later. This isn’t “Today’s News.” Sheesh.
