    • Destiny 2's Trials of Osiris is back again this weekend, and thanks to a new hotfix from Bungie, the weekend multiplayer event should no longer fail to drop rewards for players braving its intense battles. Exotic vendor Xur also returns to the solar system this weekend with a new crop of gear that can help you stand against the other competitors in Trials. Here's everything you need to know about what Xur's got and where you can find him. Head to Io to find Xur this week, in the Giant's Scar area. For his weapon this week, Xur is offering Hard Light. Hunters can pick up the Orpheus Rig leg armor; for Titans, there's the Stronghold gauntlets; and for Warlocks, Xur has Controverse Hold. View the full article
    • Animal Crossing: New Horizons has only been out for two weeks, but players quickly found a way to exploit spawns for valuable bugs to get rich. One of these money-making schemes involved farming tarantulas, the semi-rare and nocturnal arachnid that are worth 8,000 bells each if you can catch them. But the arrival of brand new bugs for the month of April has also meant new competition for the profitable tarantula--the giant water bug is here and it's ruining Animal Crossing's tarantula island. We have a whole guide on tarantula farming, but the gist of it is this: you head to a deserted island via Mystery Tour and clear out all the resources like rocks, trees, stumps, and flowers. This removes spawn conditions for other bugs, which will force the tarantula to spawn more than usual. Previously, players didn't have to worry about bodies of water on their deserted island, because in the Northern Hemisphere at least, there were no seasonal bugs that spawned on water. Enter: the giant water bug. The culprit: a giant water bug.The giant water bug is a new April arrival for Northern Hemisphere players. It appears on freshwater like ponds and rivers, meaning it doesn't require any of the foliage you'd typically clear out of your deserted island to generate a tarantula island. If you try to make a tarantula island now, you'll find that in addition to having to scare away tiger beetles or wharf roaches (bugs that also don't require flowers or trees to spawn) to force tarantula spawns, you'll also need to contend with giant water bug spawns. To make matters worse, giant water bugs don't flitter away when you sprint by them, meaning you have to actually catch them with your net and release them each time they appear. This is making an already time-consuming process a long, tedious loop for players looking to make bells fast. Continue Reading at GameSpotView the full article
    • In the times of coronavirus (COVID-19), many of us are spending way more time at home and social distancing from our friends, family, and neighbors. Suddenly being cut off from our regular social circles can be a lonely and depressing experience, but fortunately, there are still ways to connect and have fun with your loved ones online. Platforms like Netflix Party help you watch TV and movies with others; Steam's Tabletop Simulator allows for virtual board game nights. And if you're looking for lighthearted games to play online with others--especially people who aren't normally into video games--it's hard to find a better option than The Jackbox Party Pack series. Fortunately, the entire party game franchise is currently on sale at various digital storefronts. In case you're unfamiliar: The Jackbox Party Packs are bundles that each contain five different party games. All games are played by using the web browser on any device of your choice, whether that's your phone, tablet, or PC. Jackbox games will have you input answers or draw things on your device, which will then appear on the screen for everyone to see. Many of them involve answering questions, drawing weird doodles, or coming up with hilarious captions for images. One of our favorite Jackbox games, Drawful 2, is currently free on all platforms. In Drawful, you draw weird prompts like "creepy tiger" or "two moms having a great day"; then, other players will guess what they think you've drawn and vote on what they think is the correct answer. Fibbage and Quiplash are also classics; both involve submitting answers in response to different prompts, and hilarity always ensues. Fans of trivia will want to try out Trivia Murder Party, a horror-themed trivia contest where each round is a matter of life and death (but you can still compete as a ghost!).

    • Grindstone, the Apple Arcade exclusive from developer Capybara Games, has received a surprise update that adds a lot of new content to the color-matching puzzler. Since launch, Grindstone has only received small content updates, mostly to celebrate seasonal events. Today, however, you can look forward to 15 new levels, a new enemy that eats other creeps and steals their colors, and three new weapons to purchase. The update is live now and available as long as you're still subscribed to Apple Arcade. Grindstone launched with Apple Arcade last year, and remains one of the best games on the service. There's still no way to purchase it outright in case it's the only reason you're still subscribed, but a whole new world of levels is a good reason to keep the subscription going for at least one more month.

    • 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.
