In "Marvel's Midnight Suns," players have the choice to pursue particularly demanding Challenge Missions in order to unlock legendary rewards for their favorite Heroes, including Captain America. Some progression into this 45-hour game is required for any Hero to unlock a Challenge. To unlock Captain America's Guardian Challenge, gamers must...
Marvel has been busy pumping out quality PlayStation-exclusive titles for gamers, such as "Marvel's Spider-Man" and "Spider-Man: Miles Morales," which have proven to be big hits for developer Insomniac Games. And due to the developer's stellar reputation, fans were beyond excited to hear that the company was working on a "Wolverine" game for the PlayStation 5. As fans of the superhero may already know, this won't be the first mainline "Wolverine" video game to hit consoles. Although adapted from a film of questionable quality (per Rotten Tomatoes), "X-Men Origins: Wolverine" for sixth-generation consoles was a hit among critics and gamers when it hit shelves in 2009 (via Metacritic).
From having once been in talks to star as a live-action "Duke Nukem" to his high-profile cameo in "Fortnite," John Cena is a familiar face in the gaming world. His next appearance will be as the featured star of "WWE 2K23," returning to the series' front cover for the first time in eight years.
"Fortnite" is not the same game it was when the battle royale title first exploded onto the scene in 2017 — but that's not necessarily a bad thing. In many ways, "Fortnite's" evolution happened just how it needed to, with Epic Games' flagship game always striving to move forward with new ideas rather than constantly looking back at how things used to be. More contemporary additions like Zero Build Mode and skill-based matchmaking have arguably made the game more accessible than ever, and its enduring popularity is a testament to that idea.
Love is in the air in "Pokémon Go," and the Valentine's Day 2023 event, Mythical Wishes, is offering plenty of ways to celebrate. In fact, a few Pokémon are having their Shiny forms added to the game, and lucky players may be able to get them before the event is over.
Xbox and Bethesda had plenty to reveal during the January Developer Direct showcase. "Hi-Fi Rush," 2023's first surprise hit may have stolen the show, but the presentation opened with an extended look at the exciting PvP mode within the upcoming spinoff title "Minecraft Legends." The show didn't touch as much...
The "Dead Space" remake has wowed critics and given fans plenty of reason to revisit the series. In addition to improved graphics, crisper gameplay, and an extra level of polish, the new version also offers fun new secrets to uncover. Even longtime fans of the series who've played through the original many times over will find new content to explore and Easter eggs to discover.
The "Final Fantasy" franchise is comprised of over a dozen unique worlds. Where other JRPGs, such as "Dragon Quest," have refined their worldbuilding and gameplay over the generations, Square Enix prefers to completely reinvent the franchise with every new title. That means new designs, new lore, and brand-new combat systems for each and every game. Needless to say, all of that game design is a lot of work. Transforming the way each new game plays while also making sure it's up to the standards of a AAA franchise is no mean feat. But this constant need for innovation has led the developers at Square Enix to draw inspiration from some rather unorthodox places.
The third season of "Overwatch 2" is starting on February 7, and there is a lot of new content being added to the game, both at the start of the new season and during the weeks that follow. Players will be able to fight for dominance across the new Antarctica Control map that was first showcased in Mei's "Rise and Shine" cinematic; they'll be able to collect new Asian Mythology-themed skin — and those who complete the Premium Battle Pass will even have the opportunity to unlock a new Mythic Amaterasu Kiriko skin. On top of all that, the PachiMarchi challenge is returning in March alongside some new "One-Punch Man" themed skins and cosmetics, giving fans tons of collectibles to gather. All of that adds up to a pretty decent amount of content to keep players invested in Blizzard's team-based battle royale –- but there's a particularly special event coming one week after the season's launch.
The 2D fighter series, "Injustice," pits some of the strongest DC characters against each other. "Injustice" exists in a universe where Superman is an evil overlord corrupted by power. And it is up to Batman and members of the Justice League from other worlds to band together and stop the Man of Steel. Not only do DC characters from other worlds join the fight against Superman on Earth Twenty-Two, but the series also features characters from other franchises, such as Raiden from "Mortal Kombat," as guest characters.
Throughout the decades of the "Pokémon" franchise, some fans have surely missed an Easter egg or two — and there's one that only gamers playing in a specific region would've been able to pick up on. The first generation of games, "Pokémon Red" and "Blue," have an Easter egg that hides a "Dragon Ball" reference in-game, but the catch is that it's only in the French version of the game.
"Sons of the Forest," the sequel to 2014 indie hit "The Forest," has been a long time coming. After a few disappointing delays, "Sons of the Forest" is finally expected to arrive on February 23. And fans can't wait to get ahold of everything the game offers. This sequel promises to bring the same first-person survival gameplay and surreal horror that made the first game a success. Players, alone or with friends, will need to fight cannibals, stave off hunger, build structures, and unravel the forest's mysteries to survive. And of course, "Sons of the Forest" is also expected to bring new elements to set it apart from the first game.
"Apex Legends" has changed quite a bit since it first started. Part of those changes come thanks to the constant addition of new playable Legends, which have been added to the game every season since the game was released. However, Season 16 is breaking the trend, as the developers have a new focus in mind.
"Skyrim" has a thriving modding community, especially considering the game was initially released in 2011. As a result, fans have had plenty of time to come up with the best, most wholesome, and sometimes chaotic mods to occasionally completely change the game. Of course, for every bizarre modding fixation about the cabbages that appear in-game, there are those looking to add something different to the longstanding RPG. In fact, there's even one such mod inspired by a ROM hack of "Super Mario 64."
When it comes to sports, many fans feel like Mario hasn't really been hitting it out of the park lately. The Nintendo Switch has seen new installments for several of the premier plumber's recreation-centric spin-off series, such as "Mario Tennis Aces," "Mario Golf: Super Rush," and "Mario Strikers: Battle League." Still, none of them have entirely managed to match the positive reception towards Mario's best games on Switch.
Now, Disrespect is back to kick off 2023 with an update about what's next for the game. The internet personality teased that the coming months may be set to feature the most substantial "Deadrop" reveals and updates yet. However, development on the title is also shifting gears in a major way, which might take some adjustments for those who have been keeping up with the title's snapshots.
Perks have been a part of "Call of Duty" multiplayer for some time now and "Modern Warfare 2" and "Warzone 2.0" offer some great options. Among these various perks, Ghost tends to stand out as a favorite and is often listed as one of the best in the game (per ONE Esports). As the name implies, it gives an operator a degree of stealth capability, letting them remain hidden from opponents, and allowing for great ambushes. However, the Ghost perk can also be a source of confusion for some players with its actual benefits being somewhat unclear.
The Nintendo Switch shop has once again seemingly leaked information on an upcoming title. The listing for "The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom" briefly had a price tag attached to it on February 8 — and it was higher than standard Nintendo prices. Twitter user @Wario64 shared...
Fans of the story mode in "Grand Theft Auto 5" are likely familiar with Lamar Davis, main character Franklin Clinton's wisecracking best friend and fellow Families gang member who is an important figure in both the base game and "Grand Theft Auto Online." What many might not know is that Lamar was actually meant to have a much more prominent role in "GTA 5" towards the latter stage of the game where he'd actually be playable.
Despite most critics finding "Hogwarts Legacy" to be an excellent game, the open-world adventure title from Avalanche Studios and Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment has been controversial since its initial announcement. As part of the "Harry Potter" universe, "Hogwarts Legacy" has been a divisive topic amongst gamers because it is based on an IP created by controversial author J.K. Rowling. Because of this, many consumers have been uncomfortable supporting "Hogwarts Legacy" — a game Rowling profits from via royalties — and have boycotted the game (via Screen Rant). However, the boycott doesn't appear to have had any effects on the success the game has experienced.
