    • Blizzard has introduced a new shop called the Trading Post into its MMORPG World of Warcraft. Players can earn new mounts, pets, and gear with the Trading Post. The Trading Post will have its own currency called Trader's Tenders, and they can earn it in two different ways. The first is by simply logging into the game. Players will be rewarded 500 tenders each month. The other way is by completing the Traveler's Log Task, quests which reset at the start of every month and, upon completion, reward players with an additional 500 tenders. The location of the Trading Post will also vary based on which faction players side with. Alliance players will have to travel to the Mage District in Stormwind to meet the traders, and Horde players will have to the Grommash Hold in Orgrimmar. Each month, the Trading Post inventory will rotate, but some of the more expensive items, such as mounts, can stay in the shop for as long as three months. Similar to other in-game shops, once the item is gone, it won't be forever and will return eventually. Even though the Trading Post feature was just released, it has begun receiving some pushback. As previously reported, some fans have noticed that to unlock specific items, they'll need to play for a full year. So far, Blizzard has not yet responded to the negative feedback.

    • Electronic Arts has reportedly canceled a single-player game set in the Titanfall and Apex Legends universe. This comes after EA’s disappointing financial outlook for the current quarter. According to Bloomberg, the unnamed and unannounced game was codenamed Titanfall Legends. It was reportedly directed by designer Mohammad Alavi until he left EA in early 2022. The game’s development team reportedly consisted of 50 people and EA is helping them find other roles within the company. However, those who aren’t given other roles will reportedly be laid off and given severance packages. EA had notable announcements recently, such as delaying Star Wars: Jedi Survivor to April 28, as well as shutting down production on both Apex Legends Mobile and Battlefield Mobile. While Apex Legends is much more popular than Titanfall, Respawn Entertainment wanted fans to know that Titanfall was still part of the developer’s identity, possibly hinting at some future announcements. Unfortunately, now it seems like it’ll be a while until any sort of new potential Titanfall game ever releases. In GameSpot’s Titanfall 2 review, we said, “In many ways, Titanfall 2 feels like the game Respawn should have made in 2013. It's a fantastic sequel. It's a fluid shooter. It's a spectacular game.” View the full article
    • Logan director James Mangold is reportedly in talks to direct a Swamp Thing movie. The recently announced film will be a part of the broader, interconnected DC Universe. A new report from Variety, building off an initial article from The Hollywood Reporter, indicates that Mangold approached DC Studios heads Peter Safran and James Gunn with his idea for the project. The new Swamp Thing film was announced as part of the upcoming DC Universe slate of films, alongside Superman and Batman reboots. In a video announcing the various films, Co-CEO of DC Studios James Gunn described the film as "a very dark horror story." It will also act as an origin story for the monstrous hero. Shortly after the announcement was released, Mangold posted an image of Swamp Thing on Twitter, which Gunn retweeted, prompting speculation. Swamp Thing is one of the more obscure DC heroes, created by Len Wein and Bernie Wrightson. Watchmen creator Alan Moore and artists Stephen Bissette and John Totleben did a stellar and influential run on the character in the early '80s. He has also gotten the cinematic treatment in a poorly received movie directed by horror legend Wes Craven. Back in 2019, a Swamp Thing TV show was canceled just after the first episode aired. James Mangold is perhaps best known for Logan, a bleak sci-fi epic starring an older and cynical Wolverine. He also directed the upcoming sequel Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny and is set to direct a Bob Dylan biopic starring Timothée Chalamet titled A Complete Unknown. View the full article
    • Nintendo is once again selling "game vouchers" on the Nintendo Switch eShop. The vouchers allow you to get two games for $100, offering a savings of up to $20. Most of the eligible games are exclusive to Switch and retail for $60, so if there's a pair of titles you want, this could be a good deal for you. Notably, two upcoming Switch exclusives are currently included in the promotion: Kirby's Return to Dream Land Deluxe and Bayontta Origins: Cereza and the Lost Demon. Dream Land Deluxe is a remastered port of the Wii side-scroller that releases on February 24. Meanwhile, Bayonetta Origins is a prequel that trades over-the-top combat for atmospheric adventuring with more of a puzzle-solving emphasis. The prequel launches on March 17. If you purchase a voucher for $100 and choose these two games, you'll save $20 overall. If you're not sure if you want either of those games, there's plenty more to choose from. Another standout is Fire Emblem Engage, which just launched in January and has yet to go on sale. A bunch of hits from last year are up for grabs as well, including Splatoon 3, Xenoblade Chronicles 3, and Pokemon Scarlet & Violet. See all eligible games on the eShop Before you decide which games to use your game voucher on--or even purchase it to begin with--you should check game listings at major retailers. If you're not careful, you could actually wind up spending more money on the pair of games than you would elsewhere. The list includes a bunch of older titles that you can snag for less than retail price. For instance, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe can often be found for around $40 each, so you'd save about $20 versus the voucher offer. Nintendo's first-party titles tend to remain at retail price on the eShop, even several years after launch. There are a few things about Nintendo Switch Game Vouchers that you should know. You don't have to use them immediately, but they do expire one year after the purchase date. Nintendo says they will add more titles to the list over time, so it's possible other upcoming exclusives will be included in the coming months. You must be a Nintendo Switch Online member to purchase vouchers, and each Nintendo account is limited to eight active vouchers. View the full article
    • Call of Duty: Warzone 2 is getting the brand-new Ashika Island map for Season 2. The latest blog post from Activision includes new images and close-ups of the map's main points of interest, and Ashika Island's story details could be teasing an unexpected return for one of Modern Warfare 2's campaign characters. Ashika Island is a smaller, secondary map designed for Warzone 2's "Resurgence" respawn modes and DMZ. The island is described as being part of a small archipelago located somewhere in the Asia Pacific region. The official reveal trailer can be seen below. Season 2's story details reveal that Ashika Island has been used by a group known as the Ultranationalist Konni Group for the transportation of chemical and biological weapons. Intel from a "redacted" source suggests that noxious weaponry was being shipped there from a suspected biolab facility in Al Mazrah. One of the most interesting details provided for the island's story is that "recently intercepted communications suggest that elements of Shadow Company, under the leadership of [[REDACTED]], have taken control of the isle, seemingly on the hunt for members of the Konni Group." Given the tease of a redacted Shadow Company leader, it's possible Season 2 is going to reintroduce Phillip Graves from Modern Warfare 2's campaign, as Shadow Company works remove Konni Group from the island. Modern Warfare 2 campaign spoilers follow: Leading the Shadow Company PMC, Commander Phillip Graves was an ally who turned into a secondary antagonist in Modern Warfare 2's campaign. In the second to last mission, Ghost Team, players are tasked with stopping Graves by destroying his tank with C4. The explosion presumably kills Graves, but there's no body or evidence shown to confirm the character definitely died in the tank. Fan theories have long speculated that Graves survived and would resurface in the future. It's often a Hollywood rule that if a body isn't shown in a story, they're probably coming back at some point. The artwork for Season 2 shows the return of Ronin, an operator from Modern Warfare 2019. While it's likely that Ronin will be the battle pass operator, Graves could potentially return to the story and become one of the shop's fancy operator bundles. We'll likely learn more when Season 2 arrives on February 15. Season 2 is set to bring major changes to Warzone 2. Players can expect DMZ mode to get wiped for a fresh start, a traditional 1v1 Gulag for the Al Mazrah map, plenty of quality-of-life improvements, and more. On the multiplayer side, Call of Duty's Hardcore multiplayer mode is finally arriving in Modern Warfare 2. Ranked Play is also being added for those looking for a more competitive mode. A new map, perk changes, and more have also been announced. Make sure to check out everything we know about Season 2 of Warzone 2 and Modern Warfare 2. View the full article
    • It is far easier to simply use Weight Loss Gummies. I know it is difficult to tell you about anything that provides so much knowledge as this regards to Keto Diet. That will take care of Weight Loss Gummies. It is how to avoid working with Diet Pills this way. Do I assume too little? If you need to upgrade your Keto Diet, begin from your Keto Diet. That will give you a leg up. This is serious. The vultures would descend upon Diet Pills. Some of you pay a lot of attention to Weight Loss Gummies. Perhaps you have followed the bad instruction on Keto Diet.  The hope was that Keto Diet would be enough for most strangers. Do you want to back down from giving the feeling of being bored? This would be the basis for your Diet Pills. This is the time to break away. I was trained by experts in Weight Loss Gummies. To beg the question, "If you can't find it, grind it." I would imagine that I may not be tragically wrong with regard to that.   https://www.offerplox.com/weight-loss/abdomax/ https://www.offerplox.com/wellness/prodentim/Abdomax  
    • Microsoft has built up an impressive roster of Xbox Series X|S controllers over the past few years, with new special-edition color schemes launching pretty regularly. These typically carry a slightly inflated price tag compared to the standard Xbox colors--but that’s not the case today. Head over to the Microsoft Store, and you can pick up the Mineral Camo or Lunar Shift Special Edition for just $50 each, down from their usual $70. Buy Mineral CamoBuy Lunar Shift These controllers offer everything you’d find on a standard Xbox controller--an ergonomic design, responsive buttons, and textured triggers--but they’ve been splashed with two stunning paint schemes. The Mineral Camo model features various shades of blue and purple throughout the entire gamepad, while the Lunar Shift model offers a glossy faceplate with swirls of grey and black on its back. Its face buttons and triggers are also white, making them boldly stand out. The two controllers were popular to begin with, so we’re not sure how long this deal will stick around. It’s also worth noting that both controllers are currently sold out on Amazon--meaning Microsoft’s storefront is bound to be a bit more popular than usual as Amazon shoppers search for alternatives. If you’re not a fan of the Mineral Camo or Lunar Shift designs, you’ll be glad to know that the standard colors are also $10 off right now. This brings them down to $50 from their usual $60 and includes colors such as Carbon Black, Robot White, Shock Blue, and Pulse Red. View the full article
    • God of War Ragnarok has reached a new sales milestone. Developer Santa Monica Studio announced that the PS5 and PS4 action game has passed 11 million copies sold. This number presumably includes sales across PS4 and PS5, as well as copies sold in hardware bundles. "None of this would be possible without the support of our fans, so thank you for coming on this journey with us!" the studio said. Ragnarok sold 5 million copies in its first week back in 2022 to become the fastest-selling first-party PlayStation game of all time--and it's still holding that record. 11 million copies sold is a big number, but without context like how much the game cost to produce and market, it's difficult to understand how much of a success the game was commercially. Despite Ragnarok's strong sales so far, Santa Monica Studio has no plans to support the game with post-launch DLC. The game did, however, introduce a Photo Mode in December. Rangarok still has a long to way to go to catch up to 2018's God of War, which has sold more than 23 million copies. That game also benefitted from a launch on PC. As of yet, Ragnarok has not yet been announced for PC. If it does come to PC, it probably won't be for another year. View the full article
    • Frictional Games has officially locked in a release date for Amnesia: The Bunker, and it's only a few months away. Amnesia: The Bunker was only announced in December, but Frictional Games has confirmed today that the latest entry in the popular horror series will be launching May 16. This is a delay of a couple of months, as when the game was announced it was given a March release window, but it's not too much longer of a wait, all things considered. In this particular outing, you'll be playing as Henri Clement during World War 1. Henri is a soldier who's left behind by his battalion, finding himself stuck in a seemingly abandoned military bunker, but this is an Amnesia game, so obviously he isn't. As Henri, you'll be tasked with finding your way through the bunker to escape the beast that hunts you, though there are some traps that might trip you up along the way. Frictional Games previously described the game has having a "sandboxy," unscripted feel, and the most recent press release highlighted the freedom of player choice and "creating an emergent gameplay experience in a sandbox horror survival setting." The game is also meant to be somewhat surprising, with objects, threats, and resources changing "with every playthrough." Amnesia: The Bunker is planned to release on PS4, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and PC when it launches May 16. View the full article
    • The annual Anime Month Sale is now live on Xbox, giving you a chance to score tons of JRPGs and anime-inspired action games at some of the lowest prices of the year. Games are a big part of the sale, although you’ll find some great anime shows and movies up for grabs, too. It's worth noting that many of the games featured in the sale have anime vibes rather direct ties to an actual anime. If you haven't played Devil May Cry 5, now’s the perfect time to pick it up. The Devil May Cry 5 Special Edition is seeing a 50% discount, giving you the base game (and a bunch of digital goodies) for just $20. The flashy action game earned rave reviews when it launched, thanks to a frantic combat system that only gets more exciting as you progress through the main storyline. Looking for something a bit cheaper? Consider picking up Devil May Cry 4 Special Edition for $7, down from $25. A handful of Dragon Ball games are also on sale right now, although the biggest discount is for Dragon Ball FighterZ: Ultimate Edition. Down from $110 to just $16, this edition of the fighting game comes with the FighterZ Pass (8 new characters), 11 songs from the anime, and a new commentator voice pack. This is one of the steepest price cuts in the entire sale--so definitely give it a closer look if you're a fan of the series or the fighting genre. While games are the main attraction of the sale, a bunch of great anime shows and movies are also up for grabs. We’ve highlighted a few at the end of this list--but be sure to check out the full catalog, as some of the most popular shows of 2023 are included in the savings.
