Too Hot To Handle: Francesca Thinks Harry’s ‘Lovable’ Personality Made Her Look Bad

0

Without a doubt, Francesca Farago is the breakout star of the new Netflix show Too Hot To Handle. Without her scenes, there wouldn't even be a show to watch. The show is about hot people living in a tropical resort with a chance to win $100,000 if they do not hook up in any way, shape or form. Every time a contestant broke a rule, that prize money got a little smaller. Most of the cast members were way too compliant with the rules, which made for some boring background characters. Thankfully, someone had the insight to cast Francesca for this show.

Harry Jowsey initiated the first kiss of the season with Francesca. Then, he decided to take the heat off himself and tell all the guys that it was Francesca who kissed him. Meanwhile, he propositioned her for sex right after their first smooch. Thanks to Harry's propaganda, the whole house turned against Frankie, except for her girl Haley Cureton. She was the only one who had Francesca's back when Harry pulled this stunt. However, Francesca and Harry got back together and broke all the rules; i.e. they had sex. Their sexually frustrated co-stars were so bothered. But, for some reason, they all seemed to blame Francesca for the money they lost. Hello, it's not as if she was kissing herself.

In a recent interview with Esquire, Francesca addressed taking significantly more heat from the cast than Harry did. She explained, "Harry is very lovable and his laugh is infectious and he's so cute and so easy to get along with that, it was easy for people to blame me and like just brush me off as the bad guy, because I'm not that lovable big Australian guy with a massive smile on his face 24/7." The Instagram influencer confessed, "It was hard to deal with at the time. I remember being in the house and everyone was like, she's a snake, she's a master manipulator. But I was like, No! It takes two to tango, you know what I mean?"

Clearly, they moved past the drama since they ended up falling in love at the resort. However, Harry never said he was sorry for his behavior. Francesca justified this because he's younger than she is and he "handles situations still to this day differently" than she does. The Canadian explained, "Sometimes I don't even need an apology because I just understand the way he works to the degree where I'm like, alright, this is just you being you."

Apparently that whole lovable Australian thing worked on Francesca too since she was able to chalk this whole thing up to Harry just being Harry. But that Esquire interview was conducted before any of the cast members watched the show. Screen Rant has since confirmed that the two are dating, making it work long distance for now as they wait out coronavirus quarantine.

Resident Evil 3 Remake’s Hidden Difficulty Modes Improve Its Horror

0

The hidden difficulty modes in the Resident Evil 3 remake do more than just make the game harder: They make it a better survival horror game. Nightmare and Inferno mode up the damage dealt and taken by Resident Evil 3's enemies, but they also change up certain enemy encounters, making Raccoon City a more intimidating environment and making careful resource management more crucial.

Resident Evil 3 remake includes three difficulties to start: Assisted, Standard, and Hardcore. Assisted grants aim assist, extra inventory space, an Assault Rifle, and other bonuses that make the game much easier, while Hardcore makes enemies stronger and items more scarce. Beating the game on Hardcore mode unlocks RE3's Nightmare difficulty, which in turn unlocks Inferno once completed. These both make enemies tougher and more dangerous, and they also include a few meaningful surprises.

The Resident Evil 3 remake drew criticism for its short length and linearity, so anything that adds replay value is welcome, and these extra difficulties do just that. Here's why playing Resident Evil 3 on Nightmare difficulty makes it feel truly scarier.

Nightmare mode's in-game description says enemies behave more aggressively, have stronger attacks, and appear in alternate locations. This amounts to a playthrough that's significantly different from previous ones. Normal zombies present much more danger than in other modes, rushing to grapple protagonists Jill and Carlos and dealing more damage per bite. Players need to be more strategic about how they approach every situation and carefully use anything at their disposal to gain an advantage. An encounter with just two zombies, for example, can quickly turn deadly, as they give the player less time to take them down before they're on top of Jill. Enemies take more damage to defeat, too, which makes these moments even more nerve-wracking, since it means using ammo that could be useful on later enemies.

But what really makes Nightmare mode - and, by extension, Inferno mode - special is the rearranged enemy and item locations. By the time players try Nightmare, they've likely already replayed Resident Evil 3's story at least twice. Secondary playthroughs on the base difficulties allow players to feel like they've mastered the game's environments, which leads to a sense of comfort and a lack of fear. Nightmare mode ensures players no longer feel comfortable, as they have to search different areas for useful items and don't know exactly what's waiting behind any given doorway. For example, a quick fight through the first room in RE3's Carlos hospital section now includes an unexpected and dangerous Licker enemy, complicating the encounter.

The Resident Evil 3 remake changed many elements of the original, removing certain areas and the "live selections" feature that enabled players to change story events in each playthrough. This hampered replayability, since every remake playthrough is mostly the same, but Nightmare mode introduces a bit of mystery back into secondary runs. Unfortunately, players will still have to take on same boss fights each time, so only the open sections of the game feel meaningfully changed. The final boss fight does feature a new attack pattern that requires skilled dodging to avoid certain death, but this difficulty spike feels more unfair than anything, since the other bosses don't have any big changes. Still, overall, Nightmare mode adds needed replay value to the remake, especially when combined with Resident Evil 3's awesome Item Shop bonuses. But more importantly, Nightmare's more creative encounters, challenging enemies, and emphasized inventory management add new tension to RE3's action-y gameplay, making it feel more faithful to Resident Evil's survival horror roots.

Godzilla’s Outpost 32 Location Is Named After John Carpenter’s The Thing

0

Director Michael Dougherty says Ghidorah's outpost in Godzilla: King of the Monsters is a reference to John Carpenter's The Thing. It has been nearly one year since the MonsterVerse's latest installment. This week, Dougherty live-tweeted during a watch along and revealed several things about the film, even saying he wants to do a Godzilla B.C. story.

In Godzilla: King of the Monsters, the title character's co-stars, Mothra, Rodan, and King Ghidorah, are contained at different Monarch outposts across the globe. An interesting tidbit is that the Outpost numbers reference other movies. Mothra's outpost is 61. 1961 was the year Mothra made her theatrical debut. Likewise, Rodan's outpost is 56. 1956 was the year Rodan flew onto the screen, which was just two years after the first Godzilla movie. Finally, Ghidorah's outpost number is 32. At first glance, the number 32 doesn't seem to mean anything. There was no Godzilla film in 1932. However, this number is actually referencing another film: the highly acclaimed John Carpenter's The Thing.

For Legendary's final MonsterVerse watch party, Michael Dougherty took over the official Godzilla: King of the Monsters Twitter account, revealing numerous tidbits on the movie. One fun fact is Ghidorah's outpost number, 32, is actually a reference to The Thing. Outpost 31 was the setting in The Thing.

One can see the irony in numbering Ghidorah's outpost similar to The Thing's. In the 1982 film, an alien creature causes havoc for anyone unfortunate to be in Outpost 31. In Godzilla: King of the Monsters, an alien is unleashed, causing destruction on a grander scale. The Thing would end up being one of the most iconic horror movies ever made. A prequel was released in 2011, though it didn't do great critically. Universal announced a remake of The Thing earlier this year.

Fans had a good time picking out the Easter Eggs and references in Godzilla: King of the Monsters, such as the Maser Cannon being mentioned. Godzilla vs. Kong is the next MonsterVerse installment. Despite releasing this year, very little is known about the story. Godzilla and Kong will appear, but it's not confirmed if Rodan and Mothra will return as well. Director Adam Wingard said back in 2017 the film is a "massive monster brawl movie." Other monsters will be in the movie, but it's not known who they are. A toy leak did potentially reveal a new Titan. For now, it's speculation until Legendary finally releases a trailer and unveils more information on the highly anticipated fall blockbuster.
