You can get Gone Home’s soundtrack on cassette now

Listen to Gone Home’s music as it was intended: on cassette tape.

Independent punk music label Kill Rock Stars is selling the Gone Home soundtrack and score on a two-sided cassette tape. Gone Home’s synth score by Chris Remo is on one side, with its soundtrack — with music from The Youngins, Bratmobile, and Heavens to Betsey — on the other.

The Gone Home cassette is on sale now for $7 and will begin shipping on Nov. 29. The Fullbright Company co-founder Steve Gaynor wrote on Twitter that it’s a limited run.

Borderlands 3 pays homage to one of Destiny’s most famous Exotics

Borderlands 3 pays homage to one of Destiny’s most famous Exotics

Over the weekend, players found a new Legendary weapon in Borderlands 3: the Good Juju. Players familiar with either the first Destiny or Destiny 2 should recognize the name as a clear play on Bad Juju, an Exotic weapon in both games.

Borderlands 3’s Good Juju shares quite a bit with Destiny’s Bad. Both weapons feature a monster carcass on the front — with Destiny 2’s being a skull and Borderlands 3’s being a goopy alien mouth. The two weapons also share a similar perk, which causes kills to instantly reload the weapon. Like Bad Juju, Good Juju is a steady, multi-round burst weapon with great stats.

The Pokémon Company is trying to sue Sword and Shield’s leakers

The Pokémon Company has filed a lawsuit in a Seattle court alleging three unnamed defendants leaked Pokémon Sword and Shield information ahead of the game’s release. The leakers — John/Jane Does 1-3 — posted photos from the official Sword and Shield strategy, thereby sharing new details about unreleased Pokémon.

Defendants allegedly stole trade secrets from the strategy guide on Discord on Nov. 1. Screenshots of the Discord messages are shown in the lawsuit, detailing the 18 photos posted from the unreleased strategy guide, each of quickly spread across the internet to reach a “worldwide audience.”

Gengar’s mouth is a literal portal to hell in Pokémon Sword and Shield

Gengar’s mouth is a literal portal to hell in Pokémon Sword and Shield

I am always conflicted by Gengar. He is cute and round with short legs — sort of like my dog. I want to squeeze him and hug him but I’m also terrified by him. There is something sinister hiding behind his smile. As it turns out, it’s literally a portal to the afterlife.

In Pokémon Sword and Shield, Gengar can enter Gigantamax mode where he becomes not only large, but his form changes, too. Essentially he goes from deadly baby to all mouth — a mouth that’s filled with “cursed energy” and leads not into his body but “directly to the afterlife,” according to Gengar’s Sword Pokédex entry. It gets worse in Gengar’s Shield Pokédex entry: “It lays traps, hoping to steal the lives of those it catches. If you stand in front of its mouth, you’ll hear your loved ones’ voices calling out to you.”

Pokémon Sword and Shield’s raid exploit is ruining it for everyone

Pokémon Sword and Shield’s raid exploit is ruining it for everyone

Raid battles, where up to four players go up against a powerful monster, are supposed to be one of Pokémon Sword and Shield’s biggest new draws — you get to battle a strong monster, and then have a chance to capture it after you’re done. But a surprisingly easy exploit is souring the experience for players everywhere.

Normally, when you approach a den in the wild area, the spawn is specific and set, at least for a while. But clever players have figured out that if you change the date on your Nintendo Switch, the game will update the raid monster in question. The game will also award you more watts when you check the den again, so there’s huge farming potential. You can just keep rerolling until you find the monster that you want to capture. It’s something that you can enact within seconds.

Look at the new fluffy chocobos and moogles in Final Fantasy 7 Remake

The chocobos in Final Fantasy 7 Remake are fluffy and glorious, as all chocobos should be, as shown in a new PlayStation Blog post.

The last trailer we saw from Tokyo Game Show revealed some of the bigger summons, like Shiva and Ifrit, but now we get to see what happens when you summon Chocobo and Moogle. The screens show the special “Stampede” attack, which summons a ton of chocobos to plow through the enemies.

The blog post also showed off several important locations from the first part of the game, like Aerith’s home and the beautiful scenery around it, as well as the church where she tends to the flowers. There’s also some nice clear shots of Reno, Rude, and the Avalanche crew, which you can see in the gallery below.

Yie Ar Kung Fu, one of the earliest fighting games, comes to Switch and PS4

Here’s a nifty tidbit, as spied by Destructoid: Konami’s Yie Ar Kung Fu, almost 35 years old and one of the first games to set forth the standards of the fighting games genre, is available now for Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4.

The port is $7.99 and comes courtesy of Hamster Corp.’s Arcade Archives (and Konami, of course). Evidently it’s been up for two weeks and I missed it.

Warframe players get to work building space battleships

Warframe players get to work building space battleships

Warframe players can start work on their flyable, fightable spaceships with the game’s Rising Tide update, available now on PC. They just can’t start, like, flying them until Warframe’s Empyrean expansion arrives, which is looking like early next year.

First, players must construct a Dry Dock to build the mighty Railjack, the vessel revealed back at TennoCon 2018. Working alone or co-operatively, they’ll go through two new missions to acquire the blueprints and six Railjack components needed to build the thing. Upon completion, players will find that they need additional components to start the engines and fly it; those will be provided later — i.e. when Empyrean launches.
