Jax's Mortal Kombat 11 ending isn't really controversial at all

In Mortal Kombat 11, you can punch someone in the back of the head so hard their brain ejects through their face. You can summon a magic wall of sand, stick someone into it, and then rip the entire front half of their body off with your bare hands. You can also, if you're playing as Jax in the game's Klassic Towers mode, watch a short character ending in which Jax goes back in time to prevent the Atlantic slave trade.

Epic under fire as report says Fortnite teams facing "endless" 70-hours-a-week-plus crunch

about X hours ago from

Epic Games has come under fire in a damning new report claiming that its Fortnite teams regularly face up to 100-hour working weeks in order to meet the phenomenally popular game's gruelling, ongoing update schedule.

Fortnite Battle Royale rapidly found success after its launch in September 2017, and according to a report by Polygon, Epic's leadership team remains focussed on ensuring Fortnite's popularity holds for as long as possible - even as the game's live service model and demanding patch schedule, intended to sustain momentum, takes its toll on staff.

"If a build went out into the wild and there was a negative reaction," explained one source, "then someone at the top would say, 'We need to change that', and everyone would be pulled in from what they were doing, and people were told to cancel their plans, because they were going to crunch until this was done. It was never-ending. It's great for supporting the community and for the public. But that comes at a cost."

A very, very short trailer for Dragon Ball FighterZ's next character has appeared, showing off Dragon Ball GT Kid Goku's super attacks. These attacks include his transformations, including the either maligned-or-loved Super Saiyan 4 Goku.

For his level 1 super, Goku goes Super Saiyan 3 for a short blast, but his stronger super turns him into the adult and decidedly hairier Super Saiyan 4. This form has been more or less scratched out of canon, but so has Super Saiyan Bardock and we saw that super move a billion times during Evo last year. Maybe non-canon moves will just end up being stronger for some reason.

The newest Goku to join the roster lands on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC on May 9.

Anthem Fixes Major Problems, Delays Everything Else

Anthem Fixes Major Problems, Delays Everything Else

I am not sure if it has been a bumpy road for Anthem or not. It seems like it crested the hill it needed to crest and then just sort of stalled after that. Bioware has promised to fix the major complaints about their multiplayer shooter as soon as possible and, at least as far as today's update goes, some of that is true.

The 1.1.0 patch released today makes some much-needed quality of life changes to the game, namely having to do with how often you need to go back to Fort Tarsis or the launch bay. You can now select contracts from the mission board without needing to physically be in front of the mission board, and you can also choose a new mission right from the end of the mission you just finished. Perhaps most crucially, you now possess the ability to access the Forge during missions, strongholds and freeplay. 

So that's all good! Unfortunately, it looks like the roadmap for the future is going to take a little while longer in the meantime. On the game's subreddit, Bioware's head of live services Chad Robertson and Anthem's lead producer Ben Irving wrote that a detour is being taken at the moment.
