  • New Injustice 2 Update Brings Superman Premier Skin

    injustice 2 superman premier skinA brand new update for Injustice 2 has landed and it brings a new Superman skin into the game.

    The new Superman skin is called the Bizarro Superman and it is a premier skin.

    The trademark feature of the Bizarro Superman skin is the reversed 'S' on his chest. The character also looks zombified in many ways and has bright blue laser eyes. You can see an example of the skin's appearance in the image above.

    Some of the moves on the new Bizarro Superman skin have changed when compared to the standard Superman. For example, one move will now burn opponents instead of freezing them. His laser beam attack now produces icy, cold damage instead of red, hot solar damage.

    The Super ability of the Bizarro Superman skin remains the same as the standard Superman, but there are a number of other small changes to some other skills that are available to both Superman and Bizarro Superman.

    The Bizarro Superman also has new voice lines. The lines include things like "You Bizarro new best friend," "Bizarro need not worst friend," and "Why am you so polite!?"

    While Bizarro Superman's ability to speak may not be the best, his ability to pummel enemies is certainly up with the best.

    The new Bizarro Superman skin was introduced in an update that predates the upcoming new character DLC, which will introduce Starfire to Injustice 2.

    What are your thoughts on the new Bizarro Superman skin? Leave your thoughts below!

  • Brand New Weaponized Vehicle Added to GTA Online

    gta online pick up insurgentA brand new update has been added to GTA Online that introduced a new weaponized vehicle and a number of other changes. As usual, a new list of items has been put up for discount and the items on sale last week have now reverted back to their standard prices.

    The biggest feature in this new update is without a doubt the new vehicle. The vehicle is weaponized and is called the Insurgent Pickup Custom. As the name suggests, the Insurgent Pickup Custom is essentially a Pick-up style Insurgent vehicle. A player can sit on the top of the Pick-up and use the heavy machine gun that the vehicle is equipped with.

    The player on the turret is vulnerable, while players inside the Insurgent Pickup are safe from bullets. To fully upgrade the vehicle with the best armor and weapons, players must first purchase the Pickup, then upgrade it in the mobile operations center.

    If you haven't managed to get access to the new gun running content yet, you'll be happy to hear that some of the bunkers are now on sale. For a limited time, you can now get 30% off the full price of the Farmhouse Bunker, 25% off the Smoke Tree Road Bunker, and 10% off the Grapeseed Bunker. All upgrades and style improvements for each bunker are now 25% off.

    In other news, the Power Mad adversary mode is still rewarding players with double GTA dollars and RP.

  • New Game Fortnite Now Available In Early Access

    fortnite in early accessFortnite is a brand new IP by Epic Games and it has finally arrived on Xbox One, PC, and PS4.

    Fortnite has been in the eyes of the media for a good few years now, and it's been in development for even longer than that. Today, Fortnite has finally made it to early access and can be picked up on PC, Xbox One, and PS4.

    The development studio responsible for Fortnite is responsible for both Gears of War and Unreal Tournament. Fortnite takes things in a different direction. There are less blood and gore, and more room for creativity.

    In Fortnite, players must team up to build structures that can defend themselves against an oncoming onslaught of enemies. As the game continues, the enemies become more aggressive and powerful. As a result, players must put in more effort to improve their defenses.

    To get into early access, you'll have to pick up Fortnite for $40 on either Xbox One, PS4, or PC.

    There are more expensive versions of the game if you feel like supporting the team behind it. The $60 deluxe version includes better weapons, XP boosts, and a number of other digital items.

    The super deluxe $90 version includes everything the deluxe version does, as well as more weapons and boosts. Finally, the $150 version includes everything the other packs include and even more digital items.

    What are your thoughts on Fortnite? Is it the kind of game that you'd be interested in?

  • Dying Light To Get More Free DLC

    dying light free DLCIt may come as a surprise to some, but the single player and co-op zombie survival game Dying Light is still getting close to 500,000 active players each week.

    This huge player base has helped developer Techland to pour as much love into Dying Light as possible. In the past 12 months, Techland has released a number of new free content updates, and now they're planning to release even more content over the next 12 months.

    The new content will also be free and it'll be spread out across 2018 and 2017. The new content will start with what Techland are calling "DLC No. 0."

    This new DLC will bring new enemies to Dying Light. The release date for DLC No. 0 has not yet been set, but it's expected to come soon. The new enemies are humans with ranged weaponry. It looks like they'll be hit men or bandits set out to capture the price set on Crane's (the protagonist) head.

    We're not sure what future content will be, but it's likely that they'll be similar in size to DLC No. 0, so essentially they'll be very small content additions that'll add to the scale of the Dying Light universe.

    What's great is that none of this content will cost existing players anything. All of the content will be released for free.

    In the meantime, Techland is working on two new games, one of which is a new IP. There is speculation surrounding the second game, which could turn out to be a sequel to Dying Light.

  • Xbox One X Pre-Orders To Open Soon

    xbox one x preordersIf you've been keeping an eye on the Xbox One X, formally known as the Xbox Scorpio, then you'll know that the console is set to hit homes around the world very soon.

    While Xbox is planning to push out the Xbox One X to retailers as soon as possible, pre-orders for the new console have not yet been opened.

    Thankfully, Xbox's Phil Spencer has confirmed that he plans to bring the Xbox One X pre-order page online very soon. Phil Spencer took to Twitter to write, "Our plan is set for this. All approvals are done so now just landing the announce with all the info, won't be too much longer."

    This means that the Xbox One X should be on sale very soon. With all of the hype that's lead up to the Xbox One X, we wouldn't be surprised if the console sells out very quickly, so you may want to keep an eye out on Phil Spencer's Twitter page for more updates.

    The Xbox One X is set to launch on November 7 across the globe. The console will be going for $500 USD. Other countries will sell it for their own prices, with the UK selling it for 449 GBP and Australia selling it for $659 AU as an example.

    Recently, it was revealed that the Xbox One X will be Xbox's smallest console yet, despite it also being the most powerful. The Xbox One X can also stand on its side, just like the Xbox 360. This feature was also introduced to the Xbox One S.

    The new MotoGP eSports championship started on July 27th. The event will start with six challenges.

  • EVO 2017 Super Smash Winners Revealed

    EVO 2017 Super Smash WinnersEVO 2017 has now slowly shifted to a halt, and the winners for both Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and Super Bros. Melee have now been revealed.

    If you don't want spoilers, you can check out recaps on the EVO 2017 Twitch channel before reading our EVO 2017 finals overview below.

    We'll first start with the least surprising turnout of the event. In the Super Bros. Melee tournament at EVO 2017, Armada and Mang0 ended up facing up against each other in the grand finale.

    Armada managed to pull out an almost clean 3-1 victory over Mang0 to take the grand final win after coming from the winner's bracket. This is now the third year in a row that Armada has made it to the EVO 2017 grand finals.

    In 2016, Armada came second after losing in the grand finals. Armada also took the 2015 EVO Smash Bros. Melee win.

    The results for the EVO 2017 Smash Bros. for Wii U tournament were a little more interesting.

    As expected, ZeRo made his way to the grand finals after staying at the top of the winner's bracket. However, out of nowhere, Salem, pushed out a very close victory in the grand finals.

    Salem had a tough time making his way through to the grand finals. With a number of close wins behind him, Salem ended up beating ZeRo 3-2 in both grand final best of five matches. It was one of the most exciting Smash Bros. games to watch this year.

  • Dissidia Final Fantasy NT Beta Signups Open

    dissidia final fantasy nt betaDissidia Final Fantasy NT is a video game that'll take the Final Fantasy franchise into new territory. It's a fighting game at heart, but it borrows some elements that you'd only recognize from past Final Fantasy games.

    Dissidia Final Fantasy NT is set to officially launch on the PlayStation 4 next year. So far, the exact release date hasn't been confirmed. We do, however, now know that a beta is coming for the game that'll give players the chance to play Dissidia Final Fantasy NT early.

    The signups for the closed beta are now live - you'll need to go to Square Enix's website to register your interest.

    Square Enix hasn't yet confirmed the starting dates for the closed beta, either. We'd expect it to come sometime this year, though. We're not sure whether pre-ordering Dissidia Final Fantasy NT will give you instant access to the closed beta, but for now, it looks as if it'll only be limited to randomly selected people that sign up to the closed beta via Square Enix's website.

    Dissidia Final Fantasy NT isn't the only game that has featured Square Enix's fighting game format - we've seen two Dissidia games for the PSP in the past. The new Dissidia Final Fantasy NT will be the first time we've seen the concept being taken to console.

    We're expecting Dissidia Final Fantasy NT to arrive in early 2018. We'll provide more details about it when we know more.
