    • It can be tricky to get friends or family into video games--it's certainly become easier in recent years with the rise of mobile gaming, which has created a more accessible market for gamers of all skill levels. However, there are still people out there who haven't played a video game. If you happen to know and live with such a person and you're hoping to get them to participate in one of your favorite pastimes now that you're spending more time at home, you may be wondering where to start. We've found that a good way to get people who aren't regular players interested in video games is to play a co-op game with them. But, of course, that begs the question: What's a good video game to play with someone who's never played one before, or who rarely plays games and may not want to commit to something that's too skill-focused? Well, in the following article, we detail some of our personal favorite games that are fun to play, whether you've been gaming all your life or just starting for the first time. Our list includes all sorts of games, ranging from silly couch co-op experiences you can play with the whole family, like Super Mario Party and Jackbox Party, to approachable online multiplayer games that you can play with a friend if you're both stuck at home, such as Rocket League and Destiny 2. We'd love to hear from you all if you think we missed anything--leave a note in the comments section about your go-to when you want to play a game with a friend or family member who isn't normally into video games.

    • It doesn't feel like four years have passed since Persona 5 was originally released in 2016. Atlus' PlayStation 4-exclusive RPG developed a fervent fanbase and, thanks to their efforts, the title has remained an ever-present part of gaming culture. Persona 5 is a game that, in more than a few ways, was built to linger in the mind and stay in conversations. Its themes and subject matter are complex and its characters are nuanced. Everything from their visual design, to their personalities, and their place within the story resonated with people. It can't be easy, then, to go back and introduce something new to the game after the fact. Changing something that such a huge number of people have fallen deeply in love with is a daunting challenge, but to have that change be a brand new character placed at the center of the story is a potentially overwhelming one. But that's exactly what Atlus has done for Persona 5 Royal, and the task of designing the new character fell upon Shigenori Soejima. Soejima has defined the Persona series as we know it and, many of gaming's most recognizable characters come from his mind. In this episode of Audio Logs, Soejima shows us exactly how he approaches creating a character. More specifically, how he created Kasumi, the newest member of the Phantom Thieves, who makes her debut in Persona 5 Royal. Continue Reading at GameSpotView the full article
    • Fortnite Season 2's not-so-secret Deadpool skin has officially arrived. Battle Pass owners can unlock the character skin by completing all of this season's Deadpool challenges, including this week's pair of missions. Like those from previous weeks, these two tasks are fairly straightforward, but if you need help clearing them, we've put together this guide on where to find Deadpool's pistols and enter a phone booth or port-a-potty. Where To Find Deadpool's Two Pistols Like previous Deadpool challenges, this task doesn't require you to hop into a match; rather, you'll find the two pistols around the main HQ. The first is laying conspicuously under the table that displays this season's challenges, while the second is located by the barbells in the lower right-hand corner of Meowscles' room. Simply click on each of the pistols to collect them and you'll complete the challenge. Where To Enter A Phone Booth Or Port-A-Potty The second of Week 7's Deadpool challenges does require you to hop into a match, but it is likewise very simple. All you need to do is enter a phone booth or port-a-potty. There are several of each scattered around the island, and you only need to enter one of them to complete the mission.

    • Call of Duty: Modern Warfare will launch its third season next week. Activision announced the date with a teaser image on the official Call of Duty Twitter account. The season will launch on April 8, 2020. A new season means a refreshed battle pass with new rewards to earn. Midway through season 2, Infinity Ward launched the battle royale mode Warzone, which is free for all players (even if you don't own Modern Warfare) and uses the same battle pass progression. That trend will likely continue for season 3, albeit with free players having the full season to unlock their rewards. The teaser image shows the Warzone logo right next to the Modern Warfare one. The teaser image shows three figures enveloped in red smoke, with the familiar image of Ghost in the background. Ghost joined the roster as a special battle pass unlockable in season 2 as well, and his reveal trailer helped lay the groundwork for the Warzone mode.

    • Mountains, the developer of the critically acclaimed interactive story game Florence, has hired the lead programmer of the wildly successful indie puzzler Untitled Goose Game. The studio announced that programmer Cherie Davidson, who did "a lil code for Untitled Goose Game" according to her official website, is now a part of the team. The studio also brought on the lead developer of the kid-friendly arcade treasure hunter Calamari Kid and a programmer of the co-op parenting simulator Think of the Children. Mountains said in a follow-up tweet that all three programmers have been "on board for a while now" and that the studio "can't wait to show you what we've all been working on together."

    • Resident Evil fans can return to Raccoon City in Capcom's latest remake of a horror classic, Resident Evil 3, which is out today on PS4, Xbox One, and PC. Resident Evil 3 takes place around the events of Resident Evil 2 but follows protagonist Jill Valentine, a S.T.A.R.S. agent trying to escape Raccoon City as she's stalked by a relentless monster called Nemesis. The game is also bundled with a 4 vs. 1 online co-op game called Resident Evil Resistance. If you're looking to dive into Resident Evil 3 this weekend but haven't yet secured your copy of the game, we've rounded up all the best deals we could find on the game, including some markdowns on digital versions you can download today. We don't suggest waiting long to claim any of these deals--they're likely to sell out fast, and some are scheduled to end this weekend. While not discounted, physical copies of the game are still available at places like Best Buy and GameStop, but be sure to note any delivery estimates as many stores are seeing delays on physical game shipments.

    • With people around the globe stuck in their homes in recent weeks, they've evidently been watching a lot of Twitch streamers. The service had its best quarter ever, breaking a record with more than 3 billion hours watched. According to streaming tools service StreamLabs, Twitch hit new highs for both hours viewed and hours streamed, with about three times what YouTube Gaming Live managed during the same period. Twitch saw its watch hours increase by 23 percent between February and March, with concurrent viewership rising by nearly 20 percent. While this was a period when people began self-quarantining because of coronavirus (COVID-19), it also saw the release of major games like Doom Eternal, Nioh 2, and Animal Crossing: New Horizons. Twitch streaming hours had actually been on the decline last year. Continue Reading at GameSpotView the full article
    • Coronavirus (COVID-19) has already caused game delays such as The Last of Us Part 2 and it's possible more will follow, but GameStop is still accepting pre-orders on upcoming titles. The retailer has now announced new procedures it has in place for customers picking up their games. For areas where GameStop stores are still open, you can pick up your pre-ordered games on launch day using the [email protected] service, which has an employee meet you at the door and hand you your game. The only options for paying off these orders are chipped credit cards and GameStop gift cards. At closed GameStop stores, you'll have the option to get the game shipped, and GameStop is sending out emails with instructions. If you only put a small deposit on the game, you will have the option to get a virtual gift card with that same amount so you can order the game online.

    • Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 2 began on February 20, and we've known since then that the metatextual motormouth Deadpool would be joining as a special skin--just not when. That day has finally come, as Epic has announced that Deadpool is reporting for duty. You can unlock the special skin by completing a set of special challenges. To earn Deadpool, you just have to own the battle pass and complete his series of challenges. Most of them have been rolling out progressively throughout the season, but a couple of new challenges began this week. They're fairly straightforward, and you can find the list in Deadpool's secret room by clicking on the vent from the main hub. Find Deadpool's letter to Epic Games Don't thank the bus driver Find Deadpool's milk carton Find Deadpool's chimichangas around HQ Find Deadpool's toilet plunger Destroy toilets Find Deadpool's katanas Deal damage to opponent's structures Find Deadpool's stuffed unicorn Visit the Red, Yellow, Green, Blue, and Purple Steel Bridges Find Deadpool's big black marker Deface GHOST or SHADOW posters The first new challenge this week is to find his pistols, which are located in the main hub and in Meowscle's room. Then in a match, enter a phone booth or a port-a-potty during a match. Once you complete those two challenges, you'll win yourself one bona fide Deadpool skin.

    • With a week left until launch, now might already be too late to start warning you about the potential of spoilers in all of Final Fantasy VII Remake's marketing. But if there's one trailer you absolutely should avoid if you're worried about the any story spoilers, it's the latest launch trailer for the game. At just over four minutes long, the launch trailer for Final Fantasy VII Remake shows off a lot. It starts with a callback to the series' great PSP prequel, Crisis Core, and just continues delving into very specific stories for each of its main characters. There are reveals that are decades old at this point, but it also showcases some new wrinkles that Square Enix is adding to this greatly expanded Midgar chapter. If you dare, you can watch below. Square Enix has been asking fans of the game to avoid spreading potential spoilers, especially after early physical copies went on sale much earlier than expected in some regions affected by logistical problems due to COVID-19. This means that many people have already potentially finished the first chapter in this episodic retelling of that PlayStation classic, so beware when searching for anything related to the game online.
