At 2019 E3 press conference, Square Enix announced the Final Fantasy VIII Remastered. Meanwhile nothing concerning the release date was said but it is set to launch later this year.

And now, ESRB has rated Final Fantasy VIII Remastered for Windows PC and Xbox One. This is a new rating for the game that PS4 and Nintendo Switch appears to miss out, hence, only lists the Xbox One and PC as a platform.


It is a brand new rating that is separate from the ESRB rating given to the original version available through the PlayStation Store and Steam. Below is a description of the Final Fantasy VIII Remastered ESRB rating. The game was given a Teen rating by ESRB.

This is a role-playing game in which players follow the story of fighters involved in a war for independence. Players can explore cities, interact with characters, perform quests, and battle human and fantastical enemies. Combat is turn-based, with players selecting attack moves from a menu which triggers brief animated sequences. Cutscenes also depict instances of violence and blood: a character impaled through the chest with a crystal shard; a character slashed across the face during a swordfight; blood splashes and a bleeding wound on a character’s face. The game contains some suggestive material: scenes referencing a “naughty magazine,” though no images are shown; female characters wearing low-cut or skimpy clothing that reveals large amounts of breasts/cleavage. A handful of scenes depict drunk characters slurring their speech or hiccupping; one sequence allows players’ character to buy alcohol in order to obtain an item—after drinking, a character says, “Whoa…(hic) I’m totally wasted…”). The words “a*s,” “bastard,” and “b*tch” appear in the dialogue.

Actually when the rating of the game is updated on the ESRB website, it is when the game is closer to launch. Although Square Enix hasn’t shared a release date for Final Fantasy VIII Remastered, this possibly hints at an impending announcement for the game’s release date.

Samsung is on the road to announce its flagship Galaxy Note 10 in the second half of August, but it appears to have difficulties because of the impact of the prolonged trade row between South Korea and Japan.

Because of this reason, Samsung Electronics, the Korean tech giant, is reducing chip production for its next flagship smartphone Galaxy Note 10.

Based on the report from The Investors, Note 10’s production has been decreased by about 10%, but Samsung expects production to increase again next month to reach the desired level.

Meanwhile, Samsung declined to confirm this report, but market watchers claimed that the latest trade feud may have forced the tech giant to adjust the manufacturing timeline as it fears running out of chemical products currently being restricted by the Japanese government — fluorinated polyimide, hydrogen fluoride and resists, which are considered essential to the manufacturing process of chips and displays.

The Galaxy Note 10 smartphone is scheduled to be unveiled on Aug. 7 at Samsung’s annual unpacked event in New York, and is expected to hit stores from Aug. 23 in the US and Korea.

While it is reported that Samsung will release the Note 10 in two versions, a version powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 855 processor which is limited to country markets including the U.S. and also Exynos version based Note 10 which will be available in major markets around the world, including Europe.

The newly teased Aston Martin photos has new details concerning the DBS GT Zagato sports car, revealing further glimpse of the car's final production intent of the exterior. The DBS GT Zagato will be combined with the DB4 GT Zagato Continuation to complete the DBZ Centenary Collection.

While the car is priced at £6m for the pair, Aston plans to make only 19 pairs of these rides. Aston claims that the new renderings give a fresh look at the key design features of both new models.


The DBS GT Zagato started as a DBS Superleggera, and Aston says that the DBS GT Zagato “embodies the next evolution” of the Zagato design. The car gets a new and unique “dynamic” grille at the front that changes its appearance.

Aston however, fitted the car with 108-individual diamond-shaped carbon fiber pieces that are flush with the exterior of the car as well. When the car started those little carbon fiber bits “flutter into life” as they open to let the twin-turbo V12 breathe. Marek Reichman, Aston CEO says that the design of the car is to give onlookers an aural and visual treat when the car starts.


The car has a full-length carbon fiber roof and to allow the driver to see out of the back of the car; it uses a camera-operated rear view central mirror. That full-length carbon fiber roof extends to where the rear window would typically be.

Are you looking for best HBO movies to watch to keep yourself busy and entertained?  Subscription streaming services are the fastest growing sector of the entertainment industry. However, premium cable company such as HBO were offering consumers a way to watch movies and TV shows without commercials for a set monthly fee before Netflix, Amazon Prime, and Hulu came to dominate that arena.

Meanwhile, HBO is doing what they can do to ensure that they're not letting streaming content to run away with their market share by allowing people to subscribe to an entirely online version of their service called HBO Now, after fans had plead for such an option for years.

Nowadays, cutting the cable cord is the preferred way to go for many people, younger pop culture devotees in particular. Cable packages are bloated, full of content very few people want, and contain multiple additional fees. Still, whether one subscribes to HBO through cable or via streaming, the service offers a great selection of movies with which to keep yourself busy and entertained, even if the line-up isn't quite as robust as those of the subscription streaming big three.

Before the list of the best movies on HBO begins proper, there are some important notes to be made. First, the movies below are available to watch on HBO and stream on HBO Now at the time of this writing. As movies expire, the list will be updated, as well as new great options will be added.

What Are the Best Movies To Watch On HBO This July, 2019?

1.) CRAZY RICH ASIANS:

Asian actors still really don't get that many leading roles in Hollywood films, but with director Jon M. Chu's 2018 hit Crazy Rich Asians, an entire cast of them got a chance to prove how outdated that practice is. Constance Wu stars as Rachel Chu, a Chinese-American professor who heads to Singapore in order to meet her boyfriend Nick Young's (Henry Golding) family. As the title suggests though, Nick neglected to inform Rachel that said family is shockingly rich and powerful. Sadly for Rachel, Nick's controlling mom (Michelle Yeoh) is not in support of their union. It's a fairly standard romantic comedy setup, but brought to life by a talented cast, and told from a relatively unseen point of view. A massive financial success, Crazy Rich Asians is a terrific addition to the HBO line-up.

2.) MEAN GIRLS:

Every generation latches on to its own favorite teen movies, and for those coming of age in the 2000s, few are as beloved as 2004's Mean Girls, presently on HBO. A movie directed by Mark Waters, Mean Girls takes a look at the clique-heavy high school ecosystem, all while being hilarious and quotable. Lindsay Lohan stars as Cady Heron, freshly placed in a new school after spending over a decade in Africa. Cady has a hard time adjusting, that is until she's taken in by The Plastics, a group of the school's most popular girls. Leading the group is the often cruel Regina George (Rachel McAdams). Before long, Cady and Regina butt heads, and the battle for teenage supremacy is on. Lacey Chabert, Amanda Seyfried, and Tina Fey also star, with Fey herself having written the script.

3.) THE HATE U GIVE:

A critically acclaimed adaptation of the popular novel by Angie Thomas, 2018's The Hate U Give makes no bones about the fact that it's politically motivated, with a story that could be easily ripped from far too many headlines. Starr (Amandla Stenberg) does her best to balance her daily life at a mostly white private school with her home and weekend existence in a predominantly black neighborhood. Starr does her best not to rock the boat, that is until her close friend Khalil (Algee Smith) is gunned down by a white cop while unarmed. This leaves Starr with the choice to maintain her anonymity, or stand up for her fallen friend. The Hate U Give is an essential HBO watch.

4.) HALLOWEEN:

In 1978, director John Carpenter created one of the most iconic horror villains of all time with Halloween's Michael Myers. Unfortunately, the franchise that followed wasn't exactly great, with few of the sequels doing any type of justice to the original. Thankfully, that trend changed with 2018's Halloween, directed by David Gordon Green, and now available on HBO. A direct sequel to only Carpenter's original - and with Carpenter himself onboard as producer and composer - Halloween (2018) does its best to recapture Michael's glory days, even bringing back Jamie Lee Curtis as Laurie Strode. The result isn't as good as the original, but it's pretty easily the best follow-up.

5.) SUNSHINE:

Directed by Danny Boyle and written by Alex Garland, 2007's Sunshine doesn't always get the credit it deserves when it comes to being a quality sci-fi film, despite it receiving predominately good reviews at the time of release. A lot of that is likely due to it bombing at the box office, but that's one of the great things about streaming services like HBO Now, films that didn't soar out of the gate can find a new audience. In the year 2056, Sunshine sends a crew of astronauts up to try and reignite the dying sun with a nuclear bomb. Unfortunately, things go wildly awry. The all-star cast includes Cillian Murphy, Chris Evans, Rose Byrne, Michelle Yeoh, and Mark Strong.

6.) THE BOURNE IDENTITY:

An adaptation of the novel of the same name by author Robert Ludlum, 2002's The Bourne Identity turned Matt Damon into a certified action star and also proved that he could lead a franchise. Directed by Doug Liman, The Bourne Identity stars Damon as Jason Bourne, a man suffering from severe memory loss that eventually discovers he's a badass assassin formerly employed by a clandestine group called Treadstone. Bourne would reprise the title role for three further sequels, the first of which is also available to watch on HBO.

7.) WON'T YOU BE MY NEIGHBOR?:

One of the most beloved documentaries in recent memory, many moviegoers were outraged when director Morgan Neville's Won't You Be My Neighbor? was snubbed in the Oscars best documentary category. Despite that sad turn, the film's exploration of the life and career of Fred Rogers - host of legendary kids show Mister Rogers Neighborhood, and lifelong advocate for children - remains utterly compelling, and enough to pierce just about anyone's cynical exterior. HBO subscribers should get acquainted with it as soon as possible.

8.) THE AMERICAN PRESIDENT:

In the age of Donald Trump's many sordid personal scandals, it's almost quaint to imagine a time when a widower president having a romantic relationship with a lobbyist would be enough to endanger an administration. Yet, that prospect seemed all too feasible in 1995's The American President, directed by Rob Reiner and written by Aaron Sorkin, now available on HBO. President Andrew Shepherd is played by Michael Douglas, while his new love Sydney Ellen Wade is played by Annette Bening. Amusingly, the presidency of Bill Clinton would almost be undone a few years later due to his own secret affair, although his wife was of course very much alive at the time.

9.) COLLATERAL:

Tom Cruise has made a career out of playing likable romantic leads and/or dashing action heroes, but in 2004's Collateral, he got to indulge in his inner villain for a change. Cruise plays Vincent, a charming but brutally cold hitman who forces cab driver Max (Jamie Foxx) to provide him transport as he takes out various targets. Max goes along for his safety, but eventually reaches his breaking point, leading to a deadly game of cat and mouse between the two men. Jada Pinkett Smith, Mark Ruffalo, and Javier Bardem also star in the Michael Mann-directed thriller, which remains worth a watch on HBO.

10.) THE PRESTIGE:

Ever wanted to see Batman and Wolverine fight over the affections of Black Widow? It’s unlikely to ever happen onscreen, but the next best thing can be found in director Christopher Nolan’s twisty thriller The Prestige, which stars Christian Bale, Hugh Jackman, and Scarlett Johansson in leading roles. Michael Caine and David Bowie also make their weighty presences felt in the film, a tale of two illusionists on a collision course that remains a great choice for an HBO night in.
