  • Overwatch League Gets First Competitive Teams

    overwatch league teamsA number of teams have now been chosen to participate in the Overwatch League. More details are provided in the article.

    When the Overwatch League was first announced, it had high ambitions to turn their eSports league into a league similar in proportion and style to the NFL or the NHL. Blizzard had hoped to allow cities and popular locations across the world to host their own teams, just like in the NHL and NFL.

    Some of the first teams in part of this new formula have now been announced, with some of the teams being backed by some very well-known (and wealthy) individuals.

    To begin with, Robert Kraft, owner of the New England Patriots, recently purchased an Overwatch team for the Boston area.

    Jeff Wilpon, the COO of the New York Mets, is looking to build a team for the New York area.

    It's not just traditional sports names getting involved with the Overwatch League, either. Noah Whinston, CEO of Immortals, has confirmed that he's building a team for the Los Angeles area.

    Two more eSports organizations are also getting involved. With Ben Spoont, CEO and of Misfits Gaming, covering the Miami area, and Andy Miller, founder of NRG eSports, bringing Overwatch to San Francisco.

    And of course, we can't forget the international teams. Over in China, NetEase will be getting a team for Shanghai sorted, and finally, the Seoul team will be sourced by Kevin Chou, co-founder of Kabam.

    Announcements for more teams are sure to roll in soon, and after that, the Overwatch League will be underway.

  • New GTA Online Update: New Car, Discounts, and More

    gta online new carA brand new car and some new game modes have been added to GTA Online on PC, Xbox One, and PS4.

    The new car added to GTA Online is the Grotti Cheetah Classic. This new car costs $865,000 and can be purchased from the Legendary Motorsport website.

    Initially, the car can come in red, pink, yellow, orange, green, blue, black, and white. Each color also has a corresponding racing stripe going down the middle.

    The new Grotti Cheetah Classic can perform well with other cars in its class, only being outperformed by two other cars.

    The new Grotti Cheetah Classic wasn't the only feature added in the latest update. A brand new vehicle mode called Overtime Rumble has been added to the GTA Online servers.

    In Overtime Rumble, players must take control of a Ruiner and fly through the air and land on different sized platforms. The game is a variation of the previously released GTA Online darts vehicle mode.

    Finally, a number of limited time discounts have been added to the GTA Online servers. If you're interested in seeing what items are currently for sale, take a look at the stats listed below.

  • New Siege Update: Loot Boxes and More

    siege loot boxesA brand new update is coming to Rainbow Six Siege, and it will be adding loot boxes, among some other changes.

    It seems most online multiplayer games now have some form of loot box - players can open these boxes for a chance of new cosmetic items in gear. We've seen this type of box in Counter Strike, Overwatch, Rocket League, Call of Duty, Halo, and now it's coming to Rainbow Six: Siege.

    Title update 2.1.1 is the new update that's bringing the loot boxes. The loot boxes are called Alpha Packs, and players will have the chance to buy them with either of the two types of currency currently in the game.

    This means players can play more games to earn renown to spend on the packs, or they can spend real money to get points to open them with. The alpha packs will feature a chance based loot system similar to other popular multiplayer games. The packs will include loot already available in the game, as well as new items of legendary rarity.

    A number of bug fixes were included in title update 2.1.1 too, including a fix to Hibana's X-Kairos gun. Previously, the pellets from the X-Kairos would fire incorrectly, causing issues when players tried to use it to blow down walls.

    The new update is already live on Xbox One, PS4, and PC. The loot packs will be made available later in the summer. So far, a release date for the loot packs hasn't been confirmed, but the update has put the code in the game.

  • Tekken 7 Will Get Tekken Bowl Mode DLC

    tekken 7 bowl mode dlcTekken Bowl has been a returning mini game in the Tekken franchise ever since it made an appearance in Tekken Tag Tournament. It has now been confirmed to be making a return as a DLC for Tekken 7.

    The new DLC for Tekken 7 will be called Ultimate Tekken Bowl, and it'll feature the same game mechanics that were featured in previous Tekken Bowl mini games.

    The new Ultimate Tekken Bowl will arrive on Xbox One, PC, and PS4 in August. The new mini game will be bundled in the same DLC as a brand new costume pack. Currently, the price tag and exact release day for each platform haven't been unveiled.

    The new announcement was made via a brand new trailer for the game mode in Tekken 7. The trailer starts by Katsuhiro Harada making his way to a bowling alley in real life. Afterward, Harada scores a strike on two lanes while throwing two bowling balls at once.

    The trailer then transitions into gameplay footage of the bowling alley in Tekken 7.

    Tekken 7 originally launched in Japan in March 2015, but it wasn't until June 2, 2017, that it was released worldwide for Windows, Xbox One, and PS4.

    Have you played the new Tekken yet? It's been receiving very good reviews from critics and players across the board. This new bowling mini game mode is sure to keep things even more interesting for anybody coming to the franchise for the first time.

  • Rick and Morty Rocket League Has Happened

    rick and morty rocket leagueIt's been confirmed that a Rick and Morty Rocket League content pack is now live for both console and PC players.

    The announcement was first made on the official Rocket League website and has since been making the rounds across various news portals and social media platforms across the internet.

    New antennas featuring both Rick and Morty are now available in the new content patch. On top of that, there are now Toppers for Cromulon, Mr. Meeseeks, and Mr. PBH. A new 'Interdimensional GB' booster has been added to Rocket League, alongside the 'Sanchez DC-137' wheels.

    The new Rick and Morty items have been live since July 5th - they were added as part of the 2-year anniversary update for Rocket League.

    The 2-year anniversary update brought along a number of other features, including a new arena called Champions Field, and new import battle-cars called the Animus GP and the Centio V17.

    A brand new crate, called the Overdrive crate, is now in Rocket League. This crate gives players the chance to unlock newly animated decals, new trails, and other items such as the Rick and Morty themed items mentioned earlier in this article.

    Season 5 of the competitive mode for Rocket League has also started now that the anniversary patch has gone live. Finally, a new Rocket League x Monstercat playlist with 18 new songs has been added to Rocket League Radio.

    Have you played Rocket League since the new update? What new items are your favorite so far?

  • New GTA Online Secret UFO Mission Found

    GTA Online secret UFO missionIn the recent gun running update, Rockstar included some course code for a potentially hidden UFO mission. GTA modding group Team Guru has now uncoded the mission and have got it working.

    So far, the mission cannot be played legitimately and it looks as if the mission is not yet completed. Rockstar may have plans to add the full mission in the future. For now, though, the uncompleted mission starts by showing players a gigantic crashed alien spaceship.

    Near the spaceship crash is a small alien egg - players can pick up the egg. After this, a group of aliens appear, and players must work together to eliminate the aliens. Players must then drive the egg to their gun running bunker.

    Aliens have been seen in Grand Theft Auto 5 before. In a mission in the story, Michael starts to hallucinate after taking drugs. During this mission, players take control of Michael to bring down waves of aliens. Some players have tried to decode an alien-themed mystery, known as the Chilliad mystery, in GTA 5 for a long time.

    This new GTA Online secret UFO mission is the first time that there has been a legitimate reference to aliens that doesn't involve some kind of hallucinogenic substance. Does this mean aliens are real in the GTA universe?

    What are your thoughts on this GTA Online secret UFO mission? Are you as interested as us?

    Hopefully, this new alien mission for GTA Online will be completed and will be added to GTA Online in the future.

    GTA Online 4th July updateLike previous years, Rockstar has released a brand new GTA Online 4th July update. The update has now gone live for PS4, Xbox One, and PC, and includes a number of July 4th items and a new game mode.

    Rockstar has mentioned that the July 4th update includes unlockable in-game tees, new patriotic liveries, and much, much more.

    This year, Rockstar has brought new American themed liveries to the mobile command center, as well as adding a number of other features that have been included in previous Independence day events.

    Rockstar wrote on their blog, "Firework launchers, classic outfits, the Western Sovereign and the Liberator Monster Truck are all back through July 10, and 25% off their original price. Plus this year also brings patriotic new liveries for your Mobile Operation Center and Mk II weaponry to help you flaunt your love of country."

  • Crash N.Sane Gets Insane First Sales Week

    crash n.sane first sales weekThe Crash N.Sane trilogy has received some pretty spectacular first week sales, and it presents some potential for a brand new future of Crash Bandicoot games.

    As well as breaking some first week sales records this year, the Crash N.Sane trilogy has quickly jumped to the top of the sales charts and it's looking to be the hottest drop this year, despite the PS4 exclusivity.

    In the UK, more people bought Crash Bandicoot in the first week than people purchase Horizon Zero Dawn, making it the biggest selling first week title in the UK so far this year.

    In other news, it's been reported that the Crash N.Sane trilogy may be making its way to the Xbox One. While the Crash Bandicoot remaster was first launched as a PS4 exclusive title, the huge reception the game has received has pushed Naughty Dog to consider publishing it on the Xbox One.

    Recently, XboxAchievements reported that the Crash N.Sane trilogy will be getting an Xbox One release on December 8 this year.

    Hopefully, this recent success will just be the start of a very successful future for the Crash Bandicoot franchise. There's no doubt that a lot of people out there absolutely love Sony's furry orange bandicoot.

    What are your thoughts on the new Crash N.Sane trilogy? The game is a port of the first three Crash Bandicoot games that originally launched on the PlayStation One and PS2. New versions of Crash Bandicoot were built in recent years, but nothing could outperform the success of the original trilogy.

  • Destiny 2 Gear Won't Have Randomly Assigned Stats

    Destiny 2 gear statsOne of the biggest mechanics in Destiny isn't coming back to Destiny 2 and it has split the community in two.

    In the original Destiny, each weapon drop can have stats randomly assigned to it. With this approach, it means players were encouraged to grind missions over and over again for a chance to get a more powerful version of their favorite weapons.

    However, in Destiny 2, this randomly assigned stats mechanic will be removed.

    This random stat mechanic has been used in similar games for years - it's a system that's been used in Borderlands and Diablo, and it's been something that has fueled the addictive nature of these types of loot-focused games. With the random stats gone in Destiny 2, getting good gear is still rewarding, but once you've got the best weapons in the game, you'll know that there isn't a chance to get even better gear.

    This has the potential to reduce the replayability of Destiny 2, especially if there isn't enough content added to the game. Destiny originally had very little content, but it was the chase for better loot that got players happily replaying the same content over and over.

    There are two major reasons why Bungie has taken this new approach to loot. The first reason is so that those who don't have hours to grind each day still have a chance to get the best weapons. The second reason is for balancing - with every item type now having the same stats, it will be far easier to balance weapons, which is great for the Crucible.

  • Battlefront 2 Will Have Loot Box Micro-Transactions

    battlefront 2 loot cratesStar Wars Battlefront 2 has been confirmed to feature loot box micro-transactions. While this is a common occurrence in games these days, some players are concerned about the contents of these loot boxes.

    With the loot boxes in Battlefront 2, players have two options. Players can either earn credits by playing the game normally, or they can top up their credits balance by purchasing credits with real money. These credits can then be spent to purchase and open loot boxes, or otherwise known as 'Crates' in Battlefront 2.

    Players are also given crates for logging in regularly - so players have the opportunity to earn rewards for being a loyal player. All of the crates in Star Wars: Battlefront 2 will contain a number of different rewards, including Star Cards, Crafting Materials, and Credits.

    Credits can be used to purchase more crates, while Crafting Materials can be used to craft more Star Cards. Finally, Star Cards include upgrades for heroes and characters in Star Wars Battlefront 2.

    These Star Cards do include cosmetic changes, but they also include some improvements to stats, including stats that affect damage reduction. This gives players who have a lot of money to invest in the game, a higher chance to get the best Star Cards. It should be noted that players who open chests with credits still have a chance to get good Star Cards.
