Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands‘ character creator will let fans play as their own customized characters for the first time in the Borderlands franchise. Who thought that it’d take a Borderlands spin-off before we get to self-insert ourselves in the games? That’s exactly what’s happening in Gearbox Software’s next title, Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands. Essentially a spin-off spinning off simply because of the success of a single DLC campaign, Tiny Tina’s Assault on Dragon Keep for Borderlands 2, Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands will see the titular character once again DM-ing for a party of adventurers. And just like your usual tabletop RPG games, you get to create and customize your own character for this adventure.
When Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl releases next month, the game will have 20 playable fighters to start with, spanning a number of beloved franchises. However, it seems that developer Ludosity has plans for the game beyond its debut. In a new interview with Game Informer, Ludosity CEO Joel Nystrom revealed that two more fighters will follow soon after All-Star Brawl's launch, and "additional DLC characters will be revealed after that." That's promising news for any fan that might not see their favorite make the final cut. Nystrom also revealed another update that might be added in the future: voice-acting.
In March of 2018, Nintendo shocked the world with the announcement of Super Smash Bros Ultimate, the fifth game in the iconic fighting series. Later that year the game’s director Masahiro Sakurai presented a character trailer that would show “some” fighters that would be appearing in the game. During said trailer, it quickly became apparent that the prayers of so many Smash fans had been answered when roughly halfway through the screen said, “Everyone Is Here!” The simple statement became a tagline for the game and while millions of Nintendo fans rejoiced a small few were left wondering if their favorite purple-loving anti-hero would be making his debut.

2017's open-world machine-hunting Horizon Zero Dawn now has a brand new PlayStation 5 patch so let's revisit Aloy's debut adventure. Having recently played the phenomenal Ghost of Tsushima Director's Cut, I was delighted to see that Horizon Zero Dawn was getting a PS5 upgrade of its own. However, I never played it before so I figured I'd check out the Complete Edition and let me tell you; I've been missing out on one epic adventure. In fact, Horizon Zero Dawn is rather similar to Ghost of Tsushima in that you explore a large overworld while uncovering fog, stealthily sneak around enemy-infested areas, collect materials for upgrades, and take on enemies with a mix of melee and long-range attacks. With that being said, they're still very different-feeling games yet both are undoubtedly awesome.
Both the PS4 and the PS5 are stealing an Xbox console exclusive off the Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and Xbox Series S.

Meanwhile, the pair also relayed word that the PS4 and PS5 release of the game will be accompanied by the launch of new DLC, dubbed Heroes of the Inner Sphere, and that the PS5 version, in particular, will support the adaptive triggers and advanced haptics of the console's fancy DualSense controller.

Goatboy is back with some thoughts on the upcoming Black Templar’s releases because apparently we marine releases every few months.

After languishing as a small “supplement” in a campaign book we finally see the Black Templars getting the expansive DLC all the other Marines got. That’s right – Codex Supplement: Black Templar Vanilla Primaris Protein Powder coming to hit the table top.
The Marvel Avenger game was a surprise because it was one of the worst games released over the past couple of years. However, it is going through a kind of redemption with its free DLC, with Black Panther being a bigger success than initially thought. It even looks like the success of Black Panther in Marvel Avengers has given the game a bit more of a future.
A recent livestream showed off the upcoming Deadlands area in a new DLC package for The Elder Scrolls Online, while also talking about the new DLAA tech from Nvidia. Deep Learning Anti-Aliasing is ready to make its first appearance – and it might come as a surprise that an MMORPG will be its first stage. DLAA works similarly to DLSS, which will also be featuring on The Elder Scrolls Online. DLSS (Deep Learning Super Sampling) runs games at lower resolution to boost framerates, and uses AI to upscale visuals and make up for the lost resolution. In contrast, Nvidia DLAA retains native resolution but uses AI upscaling to improve visual fidelity. While DLSS is meant to improve performance, DLAA makes the game look even better.

There is a weapon hiding among us in Fallout 76 that stands out since it was included in the Steel Dawn update, Plasma Cutter. While it may not look like much, it is as powerful as some of the two-handed weapons in the game. Plasma Cutter also gets the benefit of dealing both physical and energy damage. On top of that, mods can make it so this weapon deals elemental damage. What isn’t to love about that?
