  2. Sonic the Hedgehog ended up being a good-looking movie thanks to a significant character redesign for the blue blur, but it's hard to forget the haunted eyes and human teeth of the original design. But now a deleted scene from the film has reminded us of just how iterative a process it is creating a CGI film like this--and at a certain point in production, every scene in the film is going to look awful. To promote the film's early digital release (it's available now), Paramount has shown off an early version of a scene where Sonic arrives on earth, alongside his owl companion Longclaw. Sonic, still a baby, is warned to keep a low profile--and he immediately runs off. The scene itself isn't anything remarkable, but the extremely early CGI renders of Sonic, Longclaw, and their environment are haunting. While the character models improve dramatically towards the end, this video also gives us some insight into what a bad PS2 tie-in game might have looked like. Check them out below.

  3. One small feature added to Persona 5 Royal is a series of crossword puzzles. Throughout the course of P5R's year, you'll find a book on the table furthest from the entrance door in Leblanc. Interact with the book and you'll then be prompted to solve a crossword. If you're successful in figuring it out, you'll be rewarded with one knowledge point for free, and it's worth doing because it doesn't consume any in-game time. Note that when you initiate a crossword puzzle, you only need to solve for the line that's highlighted in blue. All other words around it serve as hints or letter fillings for the main word--doing these also helps whittle down which letters make up the solution since you only have a specific set of letters to work with. So, here are the solutions for the crossword puzzles we've found in P5R (note that there be more we have yet to discover). Continue Reading at GameSpotView the full article
  4. 2020 is barely three months in, and it has hit the world with a nonstop stream of surprises, both good and bad. In this perilous time of unpredictability, Atari delivers another haymaker with Pong Quest. Pong Quest puts the player in the role of what could be the first-ever video game hero, the paddle from Pong, in an epic quest through themed worlds based on classic Atari titles. Players will be able to customize their paddle as they take on the main adventure, multiplayer modes, and a treasure trove of game modes. Continue Reading at GameSpotView the full article
  5. Master Chief voice actor, Steve Downes, has pledged to donate all proceeds from any paid message recordings he receives this month to Project C.U.R.E. For those who may be unaware, Master Chief is the main character of the Halo franchise, and is known for having a deep and gruff voice. Downes can be commissioned on Cameo to record a personalized audio track or video. He uses the platform to make videos celebrating or just providing fans with some cool voice lines. This has been a stream of revenue for the voice actor, but now he intends on donating all his proceeds for the month of April. Project C.U.R.E focuses on strengthening health systems in under-resourced countries and is currently working on obtaining safety equipment like masks and gloves to health workers across America.

  6. Untitled Goose Game was one of the big success stories of 2019, selling over 1 million copies and winning multiple game of the year awards. A large part of the game's success is due to its excellent, reactive soundtrack, and now you can listen to it anywhere. The previously-announced Untitled Goose Game soundtrack is now available through Decca Classics, and it's available to stream on multiple platforms, or to buy on iTunes. You can preview each of the tracks below. There are 14 tracks to the soundtrack, with the first 12 being based on Claude Debussy's Préludes. The final two are original pieces, created by the game's composer, Dan Golding. According to GameSpot's contact at Decca Classics, there is a possibility of the soundtrack receiving a vinyl release, although it has not been confirmed yet. Untitled Goose Game developers House House have previously pledged to donate 1% of all profits to Australian indigenous groups. If you haven't played the game yet, it's available on Xbox Game Pass.

  7. CD Projekt Red, the developer of the upcoming title Cyberpunk 2077, donated four million PLN ($950,000) to the Wielka Orkiestra Świątecznej Pomocy charity in their home country of Poland to help the battle against the COVID-19 pandemic. The studio made its donation public via LinkedIn and its Facebook page, as reported by IGN Poland. The board of directors and high-end shareholders split the donation with CD Projekt Red. "We would also like to thank the entire medical service and everyone involved in the fight against the virus. Risking your own health, you fight for ours every day -- your hard work is our inspiration," said CD Projekt Red in a statement. "We also have an appeal to everyone who reads this message: take seriously what is happening around us. Listen to the recommendations of those who know about public health. Stay at home and don't let the virus spread further." Continue Reading at GameSpotView the full article
  8. Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord is now out in early access. And like many games that initially launch this way, it's got a few bugs and issues to be ironed out--which developer TaleWorlds Entertainment has already begun to tackle with a day two update. The patch notes for the update showcase that this entire hotfix is geared towards bug fixes, including quite a few that address game crashes. Of note, the update takes care of several problems surrounding the Rival Gang quest, which has been causing issues for Bannerlord players since the game released in early access. With this update, you should no longer have to worry about the bug that was causing Bannerlord to crash when attempting to do the quest or--if you managed to accept it--complete the quest. However, in the patch notes, TaleWorlds does warn that if you've already managed to complete Rival Gangs, "there is a chance your save is already broken." The developer is already working to address any future problems that a broken save might create. Continue Reading at GameSpotView the full article
  9. Gears 5 multiplayer design director Ryan Cleven has announced he's leaving Gears developer The Coalition to go on a sabbatical after what he described as six years that took a toll on him. Writing on Twitter, Cleven said he's enjoyed his time at The Coalition but he has chosen to leave due to "personal issues" and the toll that his time at the studio took on him. "The last six years have been amazing. Gears 4 and 5 have been the highlight of my development career, but those six years have also taken a toll," Cleven said. "Due to personal issues, I can't continue to work the way that I have. I need to [take] time for myself." Continue Reading at GameSpotView the full article
  10. Animal Crossing: New Horizons has an interesting economy, to say the least. If you've been playing the game for at least a few days, you've likely sold fruit, bugs, fish, and various random items to make a quick bell. But as your house payments get bigger and you move to make infrastructure improvements, you'll need more and more money. Luckily, you can make hundreds of thousands of bells in high-risk, high-reward speculation in Animal Crossing's equivalent of the stock market: the stalk market. Named for the turnips you're buying and selling, the stalk market is a finicky thing. But you can stand to make major profits if you keep an eye on Timmy and Tommy's prices and know when to sell. We've rounded up everything you need to know about Animal Crossing's turnip trade, from how to buy turnips to the types of stalk market patterns you should look out for and our best tips. For more financial tips, check out our guide to making money in New Horizons. You can also see our roundup of all our Animal Crossing guides for more tips, important info, and more.

  11. Call of Duty: Warzone is taking a strong stance against cheating in the free-to-play battle royale game. In a blog post, developer Infinity Ward said it has a "zero tolerance" stance for cheaters. Infinity Ward has already permanently banned more than 50,000 players worldwide since Warzone launched. The company employs security teams that monitor gameplay and data around the clock to investigate and identify cheaters. These security teams "review all possible cheats and hacks," including aimbots and wallhacks, among other things. Looking ahead, Infinity Ward said it is aiming to improve its in-game reporting system to help speed up the process of wiping out cheaters. Players can expect a "streamlined" UI in the future that should allow for a "more seamless reporting experience," Infinity Ward said. The studio did not share the full specifics of its plan, of course, as that could allow offenders to game the system. However, the developer said it analyzes and filters reports of potential cheating "based on key data." Continue Reading at GameSpotView the full article
  12. With social distancing measures in place in many parts of the world due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Pokemon Go developer Niantic has been making numerous tweaks to make the game easier to play. The studio will soon allow players to participate in Raid Battles from home, but before that option rolls out, it is temporarily letting you interact with Gyms from much farther away. As Niantic explains in a new blog post, the studio is doubling the distance from which you can interact with Gyms, allowing you to spin Photo Discs and take part in Raid Battles while keeping a safe distance from other players. This change, however, only applies to Gyms; Niantic is not increasing the distance from which you can interact with PokeStops. Niantic has other adjustments in the works as well. The developer says it is "working on an entirely new way to enjoy Pokemon Go Fest" this year, and it will also tweak the Adventure Sync feature so that it tracks your steps while performing indoor tasks "like cleaning your house and running on a treadmill."

  13. In a blog post, Lab Zero announced that a new free update is coming to Indivisible, the developer's metroidvania-inspired action platformer, on April 2. The update will add two new modes to Indivisible: new game plus and couch co-op. Once you've completed Indivisible's campaign at least once, NG+ allows you to replay the story from the very beginning with all the abilities, weapons, and incarnations you unlocked in your previous playthrough. This will allow you to discover hidden secrets much earlier in the campaign as well as access shortcuts that require late-game abilities. Enemies and bosses will be a lot stronger though. Couch co-op mode allows you to tackle Indivisible's campaign with up to three other players. Player 1 will always be protagonist Ajna, but the other three can take control of any of the other members of your party. While exploring, each player will be able to move independently of each other. In battle, you'll each control your individual character in the game's hybrid of turn-based and real-time combat.

  14. Developer Team Ninja has dropped a brand-new update for Nioh 2 on PlayStation 4 that makes various adjustments to the game's difficulty in some areas. We've compiled the full patch notes below. A bunch of Nioh 2 sub-missions have had their difficulty altered in order to assuage the game's nail-biting challenges. In addition to the sub-missions, some of Nioh 2's enemies have also been tweaked to make the experience a little more forgiving. Further, the drop rates of Smithing Texts and The Art of Combat tomes, items used to upgrade your created character and equipment, have been increased. The update also makes a number of quality-of-life adjustments. These include fixing duplication item problems, addressing Yokai Realms and status effects that would not dispel, tweaking skills that would not activate, ironing out other bugs, and much more.

Humble Bundle is known for its awesome packages of games, comics, and other forms of entertainment and software, and now the company has kicked off a bundle to help with COVID-19 relief efforts. For $30, you get 44 games, over 20 books and comics, and more. All of the money goes towards charities and organizations that are working to fight COVID-19 and save lives.
