Are you sitting down? I’ve got something to tell you—something that may shock you. Between the events of the various Donkey Kong games, the Kong family was involved in a bitter and vicious war. Among its many casualties, this war may have claimed the life of a classic Kong character, explaining his disappearance from…
The wait is over: the much-anticipated jetpack has finally arrived in the 4.2 Fortnite update. It is an item unlike any other in the game, with Epic creating an entirely new gear type called “backpacks.”
While the original 151 Pokémon are now world-famous, not every monster idea that Game Freak at the time made the cut. Earlier this week, we got a look at some of the creatures that never made it into the game, and fans are giving the designs a new life.
You just bought a new Nintendo Switch. Now it’s time to figure out what games you want to play. We’ve got you covered.
There are countless turns and intersections in GTA Online, most of them unremarkable in every way. One specific sharp turn north of Los Santos, however, literally throws every single NPC driver for a loop. For some reason, the citizens of GTA Online seem to always crash or lose control while taking on this turn.
Fortnite’s recent, big comet event was the start of something new for the cheery battle royale game. Nowadays, you don’t need to wait around for a special occasion to see the map change. Every update is an opportunity to see something different.
Have you met Thaviks, The Depraved? He’s a jerk. If you’ve ever finished Destiny 2’s Exodus Crash strike, you’ve fought him, and probably hated him.
Destiny 2’s Warmind expansion introduces a new explorable area on Mars. Like the game’s other patrol areas on Earth, Io, Nessus and Titan, the Mars map initially seems to simply be an area with some public events and some hidden chests. It’s actually a lot more interesting.
If you’ve tuned into a Tyler “Ninja” Blevins livestream lately, you’ve probably noticed that things sound a little different now. Twitch’s biggest star is trying to make his entertainment more family-friendly, and some fans aren’t taking it very well.
This week, Destiny 2 got its second major expansion since it came out last September. It’s called Warmind, and in many respects, it’s a disappointment. However, it benefits from the many small changes Bungie is making to the game more broadly, and succeeds in setting up a long, demanding grind that could keep some…
It is still too early for me to say whether or not Destiny 2’s new Warmind is the breath of fresh Martian air that the game so desperately needs. But I can confidently report that the Graviton Lance pulse rifle is now really fun to use.
Don’t let his superpowers fool you: Thanos’ arrival in Fortnite is surprisingly silly. Players are taking advantage of Thanos in the best ways, or using Thanos to spread cheer. Given that Thanos is supposed to be a homicidal villain, seeing him in Fortnite’s ridiculous world has been amazing.
The hottest game in the world has teamed up with one of the biggest movie franchises around, and while it’s technically a marketing ploy, damn if it’s not a good one. This is the most fun I’ve ever had with Fortnite.
Fortnite’s next big limited event will feature a Marvel villain that will change the way the game works. Here’s what to expect.
You’ve probably heard about how a comet hit the Fortnite map by now. There’s a reason so many people were transfixed by this cosmic encounter: developer Epic made it feel like an event, worthy of wonder in the same way a real-world solar eclipse would be. In an age of instant social media updates, constant leaks and…
Now that the Fortnite comet has hit, the map is doted with craters. The biggest crater, as we all know, is located at Dusty Divot. You can’t really go to Dusty without entering a fight now. Regardless, one group of fearless Fortnite fans challenged themselves to build over the entire crater, and it turned into an…
God of War tells an unusually satisfying, self-contained story. But because it exists in this age of interconnected universes and unending franchises, it also contains plenty of hints about where the series might go next.
The new Fortnite season brought more than craters and important dances. It seems that Epic is planting the seeds for something elaborate. Perhaps even a storyline of sorts, based on new areas that players are finding.
Back in March, Epic Games announced a “Boogie Down” contest where players submitted dance videos for a chance to have their moves added to the game as an emote. Winners were announced, and a champion was crowned. The community seemingly hated the results, though.
After weeks of build-up, Fortnite’s comet has finally smashed the map. Tilted Towers still stands, but Dusty Depot? There’s a crater there now. (It’s also called Dusty DIVOT now.) Better yet, the point of impact is surrounded by rocks that will let players mess around in low gravity.
