Franchises are the lifeblood that keeps the lights on in Hollywood, and so what do studios hate more than anything? Endings – especially endings that for some reason close the door to a movie series.

Sometimes creators decide they want to wrap it up, maybe struggling box office receipts force producers to grudgingly accept the inevitable demise of their franchise, or the filmmakers just do something so misguided that it derails the IP overnight.

To be clear, a franchise-killing ending isn’t still a bad thing – sometimes they just indicate the fact that a series has run its course and has nowhere to go after reaching a natural conclusion.

Granted, few IP names will ever stay dead “for good,” but at the very least, it’ll be a very, very long time before a studio dusts off those definitively dead franchises for another go-around.

In every way that matters, those franchises were wiped out by endings that either killed off the main cast members, ended the story organically, or just pissed fans off to such an extent that the series was cancelled…

Many hoped – or at least assumed – that The Matrix Resurrections was intended to launch a new trilogy of Matrix films led by a cast of younger characters, much like Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

But director Lana Wachowski couldn’t have clarified her disinterest in The Matrix as an ongoing franchise.

Throughout Resurrections, Wachowski took a number of meta hits at Warner Bros. and the soullessness of modern blockbuster IP in general, essentially confessing mid-film that she only returned for a fourth film because the studio was going to do it without her regardless.

And so, Resurrections ends with antagonist The Analyst (Neil Patrick Harris) being summarily defeated, and Neo (Keanu Reeves) and Trinity (Carrie-Anne Moss) rebuilding the Matrix in their own image, both now seemingly versions of The One (Both?).

Given that Wachowski has further stated that she has no interest in the sequels, and Keanu Reeves and Carrie-Anne Moss have both stated that they won’t return without her involvement, there’s really no room for the series after that.

With all major conflicts resolved as Neo and Trinity are positioned as a fundamentally unstoppable superhero couple, the four-film arc seems seamlessly tied together. That’s just as well, considering Resurrections was also a colossal box office bomb.

Although it is inevitable that Warner Bros. will reboot The Matrix with an entirely new cast and crew years from now, the franchise as we know it was essentially capped in the head by the end of Resurrections, and Wachowski obviously wouldn’t have had it any other way.

PlayStation has created a new mobile division to bring its IPs to mobile platforms, here is our list of the top 5 PlayStation franchises expected to come to mobile.

Posted on August 30, 2022

Since the start of the PS5 generation, the PlayStation brand has rapidly evolved its business strategy, acquiring budding studios as well as established ones.

The company is now slowly and steadily moving towards creating more multiplayer games and live services. In its continued approach to creating more of these types of games and making PlayStation’s library available to a wider audience, it created a mobile games division and purchased Savage Game Studio.

This announcement opens up many possibilities for PlayStation and the mobile games industry. To celebrate this occasion, we wanted to discuss our list of top 5 PlayStation franchises that are slated to come to mobile devices. Without further ado, let’s get straight to it.

The last of us

the last of us mobile game

It’s no surprise that Naughty’s Dog’s action-adventure franchise, The Last of Us, has become a global phenomenon and is one of the most successful PlayStation IPs in recent memory.
Naughty Dog is already working on an ambitious multiplayer counterpart to The Last of Us, which would feature live service elements and a battle royale mode.

If the aforementioned information is true and the upcoming The Last of Us multiplayer features a battle royale mode, it would make sense for it to be available on mobile devices as well.

Gran Turismo

Gran Turismo has been PlayStation’s staple racing game series for over 25 years, and we’ve just received a new mainline entry, Gran Turismo 7, on PS4 and PS5.

Racing games have long dominated the mobile platform, and while there have been plenty of casual street racing titles, there have been very few racing simulators with picturesque visuals.

EA’s Real Racing franchise comes to mind, but it’s been dormant for a long time. Not even Microsoft has brought the Forza Motorsport series to mobile devices yet, and this seems like a perfect opportunity for PlayStation to sneak in with a Gran Turismo mobile game and establish an audience.

Killzone

PlayStation hasn’t had many iconic first-person shooters in a while. The Killzone franchise is arguably its most notable FPS franchise, and it’s been eating dust since 2014.

It’s always been easy to distinguish Killzone games (for better or for worse) from other long-running FPS titles, thanks to their photo-realistic visuals and slower, focused gameplay.

  • The Last of Us Remake announced – Release date, price, platforms, more
  • God of War Ragnarok – Release Date, Story, Gameplay, Platforms, More
  • Destiny 2 Lightfall release date, story, Strand subclass, more
  • The Last Of Us TV Series – Release Date, Cast, Story, First Look

The mobile industry is full of fast-paced FPS games, and Killzone could easily be something very distinct from other games in the genre.

Plus, given the insane number of high-end mobile devices these days, Killzone could also bring its quaint visuals from consoles to mobiles for once, which is sorely lacking in FPS mobile games as well.

Destiny / Bungie’s New IP

Besides Savage Game Studio, PlayStation also acquired developer Halo and Destiny Bungie in a multi-million dollar deal earlier this year. Interestingly, it looks like Bungie is working on a new mobile FPS game with NetEase.

It could be a whole new IP or a mobile game adaptation of Destiny, the latter of which makes more sense.

Either way, this could be a big deal for mobile gamers who could finally try out Bungie’s polished FPS experience and distinctive art style, whether through Destiny or otherwise.

PlayStation All-Star Battle Royale

It’s been a while since we’ve had a new fighting game with a notable PlayStation character roaster. Since the last, PlayStation’s long list of iconic characters has grown considerably, and a new entry in the series would be more than welcome.

Fighting games have always had a huge fanbase on mobile platforms, and a new free-to-play PlayStation All-Star Battle Royale featuring all of the fan-favorite PlayStation characters like Kratos, Ellie, Aloy and more could be coming. a great success.

As for Savage Game Studios, PlayStation has confirmed that it is working on a AAA mobile live service game. It could be based on one of the five PlayStation franchises mentioned above or something entirely new. Either way, we can’t wait to find out!

That wraps up our list of the top 5 PlayStation franchises set to come to mobile devices.

The annual competition will begin September 14, 2022 for NE Ohio law enforcement to benefit the Greater Cleveland Peace Officers Memorial Society.

August 24, 2022 // Franchising.com // Avon Lake and Medina, OH – Engage Virtual Range is never one to rest on past successes. So this year we hope to make their annual Blue Line contest even bigger and more competitive. The 2022 event will begin on September 14 and run until September 17.

This annual event was originally designed to show appreciation for local law enforcement agencies in and around northeast Ohio, but has grown into something much bigger. The winning team will walk away with bragging rights and an impressive trophy to display in their department. In addition, all police officers will also have the chance to win one of two $250 gift cards, and all participants will receive a free themed t-shirt.

The goodwill event relied on generous pledges and donations from local individuals and businesses who “support the blue” and wish to help with the great work being done by the Greater Cleveland Police Officers Memorial Society.

Individuals and businesses who want to get involved and show their support for law enforcement in the area can pledge to “support the blue” until the contest begins. All proceeds will go directly to the Greater Cleveland Police Officers Memorial Society. Last year’s event raised over $17,000 for the cause, and Engage Virtual Range hopes to top that total this year.

“This annual event continues to exceed our expectations every year. Watching these Northeast Ohio law enforcement agencies build support and camaraderie with each other and with the surrounding community is what it’s all about,” said Chad Wilson, co-owner of EVR. “Now more than ever, we want to do all we can for ‘Back the Blue’, and this annual event gives us the perfect platform to spread goodwill and raise money for a great cause. We are grateful to all of our sponsors and the people who help make this event a success year after year.

The Greater Cleveland Peace Officers Memorial Society was started in 1985 by a handful of area police officers after the funeral of a colleague killed in the line of duty. Mourning the loss of a friend and fellow officer, they made a promise: they would never abandon the families of fallen officers or allow the community to forget their service. Serving Cuyahoga, Geauga, Lake, Lorain, Medina, and Northern Summit counties, all money raised from the event will fund their general projects.

Small Businesses Leverage TikTok: Should You? https://tecno-ciencia.com/small-businesses-leverage-tiktok-should-you/ Mon, 22 Aug 2022 15:08:37 +0000 https://tecno-ciencia.com/small-businesses-leverage-tiktok-should-you/ Keeping up with social media can seem impossible.

Keeping up with social media can seem impossible. Just as you build a profile on one platform, another site becomes the new “hottest” trend. After you finally post your first Instagram photo, you hear about the latest site, where everyone in the know posts, chats, and spends.

Trying to keep up is dizzying.

It’s best for most businesses to stick with well-established social media sites. Twitter, LinkedIn and Facebook are obvious. Instagram is still a popular choice.

But what about TikTok?

As of 2020, TikTok is the fastest growing social media platform. While it certainly has its challenges and controversies, businesses can leverage TikTok to increase brand awareness, engage with potential customers, and drive sales.

Every platform is different, so if you’re going to use TikTok, you need to know how to approach this site. But first, businesses need to understand why they should adopt TikTok in the first place…

Why use TikTok?

TikTok is a social media site for watching and sharing short videos. Users can only share and watch videos; there is no written content and all videos are short. The exact time limit has varied, but videos and clips are currently limited to ten minutes. The content is light and entertaining, generally focusing on humor. Dancing, pranks and “watch me do this” videos are common on TikTok.

The site is useful for various reasons. Currently, it’s seen as something of a haven for young social media users who feel that Facebook and Twitter are overloaded with serious, adult-centric content. This makes it a prime location for fashion, retail, or food and beverage businesses that want to target this demographic.

TikTok has a high level of engagement, with users spending around 11 minutes per session on the site according to Statista. This exceeds Pinterest (just over 5 minutes), Facebook (less than 5 minutes), Twitter (3.5) and Instagram (less than 3).

It can even boost sales. 67% of users say TikTok content made them buy a product or service, even if they had no intention of doing so. In other words, they had no intention of buying anything, but they did.

How to use TikTok?

Every platform is different, but some general rules apply to all social media, including TikTok. First, you need to keep social media posts light and engaging. There is a time and a place for tough pitches on TikTok, but most users just want to be entertained. (The trick, of course, is to entertain while advertising, but that’s another conversation!)

Try to create good content that is not too sales oriented. TikTok users don’t want to shop, they want to watch. Create entertaining videos and remember that video quality (graphics, video clarity, etc.) is not important on the site. Users know they are watching home videos, not a clean Hollywood blockbuster.

If the video is funny, even if it’s grainy or flimsy, users will respond positively. Use it as an opportunity to show the light side of your brand and you’ll get better results.

The annual return of Franchise Day

Easy Franchise, the Philippines’ premier go-to technology platform for franchising, brings the first and only franchise sale to the Philippines to show its commitment to helping aspiring Filipino entrepreneurs own franchises halfway around the world. The annual “Franchise Day” is held on August 28 each year.

Franchise Day

Launched in February 2019, Easy Franchise was founded by Jose Magsaysay, former CEO and co-founder of Potato Corner, the Philippines’ most successful franchise brand, along with serial entrepreneurs RJ Ledesma and Bubbles Lim. The company’s franchise management service opens doors for OFWs to have additional revenue streams while staying overseas. In doing so, they help them develop financial stability and the ability to return home to take over a business.

The process of applying for and owning a franchise is usually tedious and confusing. With Easy Franchise, the application process can be simplified and facilitated. It will help potential franchisees apply, operate and grow their business.

Aspiring entrepreneurs face many challenges, including raising funds for the initial investment and ongoing expenses. The Easy Franchise financing service offers unsecured franchise loans at lower interest rates. The company also offers free advice on how best to use the silver so that it has the maximum impact on results from day one.

Franchise Day 8.28 is an annual online event bringing together various local and international brands to become the one stop shop for potential franchisees for all their needs.

A beloved Mechanicsville cafe seeks to bring its local charm and creative flavors to the heart of communities in Hannover and beyond.

Little Bean Coffee Co., located at 7032 Mechanicsville Turnpike, announced the start of the company’s franchise last week. Additionally, the cafe has taken on a new name: Rivers Edge Coffee Company.

The shop opened in May 2020 and quickly became a hub of activity in Mechanicsville. Offering the savory flavor of locally roasted coffee and a bustling menu of specialty latte creations, the thriving business has grown significantly from its humble beginnings as a family-run coffee cart.

Owner Jett Odle says his journey to creating the perfect cup started with a Christmas present from his wife, Morgan, who brought home a coffee roaster. A lifelong coffee lover, he eagerly picked up green coffee beans from a local Colorado store and “quickly smoked the whole house.”

Later, moving to his wife’s hometown of Mechanicsville, after learning of her pregnancy, he decided to try his hand at opening his own coffee business. Enlisting the help of his brother, Micah, the couple opened a coffee cart at Memorial Regional Medical Center in 2018. After about a year of learning the mechanics of running the business, the brothers decided to officially open a full size shop and a coffee roaster on site. .

The Little Bean name began to spread through the community after the store opened, including its appearance at local businesses such as The Lazy Cow Ice Cream Parlor and nearby Graham’s Ice Cream store. As business boomed, the store outgrew its roasting space and expanded into a larger nearby roasting facility.

Jett Odle said he would like to turn the new facility into a roasting retail space in the future, offering limited-release beans, coffee grinders, brewers and more while revealing the roasting process to customers.

“One of my favorite things in the world is showing people who’ve never seen raw coffee what it actually looks like,” Odle said. “…It’s an almost plasticized bean, that smells a bit like agriculture…and you throw it into this beautiful machine that turns it into the coffee we all know and love.”

From “day one,” Odle said he and Micah knew they wanted to build a bigger business.

“The reason we chose to open a cafe is because we love the engagement and level of familiarity you get…there’s just something really, really special about being your local cafe,” said said Odle. “One of the reasons we haven’t opened another store yet is that we knew the day we opened a second store we would lose some of that magic.”

Every day, Odle said he could walk into his store for just an hour and see “as many as 10 people” he knows by first name.

“Every time we talked about expansion, we ran into this question of how can we replicate what we’ve done here and not give up that element and not give up the ability to be incredibly engaged with your community?” said Odle.

After careful research, they came across a franchise consulting group that offered the opportunity to maintain the store’s small-town vibe in innovative ways, he said.

“We realized we could use this really cool thing called franchising to help people own cafes in their own community,” Odle said.

The process of roasting coffee is “very knowledge-intensive,” Odle said, acknowledging how difficult opening a cafe can be to navigate on your own.

“People want to own cafes because they’re there, these wonderful community centers… But the nuts and bolts of owning and operating a cafe are really, really tricky,” Odle said. “That’s when Micah and I realized we had an opportunity to help people… We can marry that passion of ‘I want to own my community’s coffee shop’ with the knowledge that [we] have built how to do this in a way that you are not going to go broke immediately.

The duo aim to teach people interested in opening a cafe how to make the perfect latte, marketing and sales functions, running a business, and ultimately “the soul of a business.” – how to become for their own community what Little Bean Coffee Co. has become for Mechanicsville, he said.

“So we can provide them with the Rivers Edge name, we can provide them with Rivers Edge beverages, we can provide them with all the know-how they need to run their business…so they are the ones engaging with their community on a really intense level like Micah and I do,” Odle said.

In order to eventually franchise out of the state of Virginia, Little Bean Coffee Co. had to take on a new name. While the original name holds sentimental significance to Odle, as he named the shop after the nickname he gave his daughter, his wife came up with a name that pays homage to the shop’s roots in Mechanicsville. .

Influenced by Mechanicsville’s tradition of visiting the river, Morgan came up with the name “Rivers Edge” because “all good things that happen by the river begin at the river’s edge”.

“I think it serves as a metaphor for what Little Bean has become,” Odle said. “The edge of the river is this meeting point where we find ourselves and where we find ourselves. And then from there, even though we all go on and do separate activities…eventually you will all come back to the riverside.

The most enjoyable part of owning a cafe for Odle has been making meaningful connections with members of the community. He said he looked forward to spreading that joy of connectedness to communities beyond his own.
