Console and PC Content Updates Will Finally Align for Monster Hunter: World

After getting out a patch that addressed some major issues with the PC version of Monster Hunter World: Iceborne, Capcom continued the good news train with announcing this weekend that they would finally get all versions of the game aligned so that event quests and other content would be available at the same time. Ever since the PC version released back in August 2018, there's been a content delay of at least a few weeks between it and the consoles. With Title Update 3 (coming sometime April 2020), that'll all be a thing of the past.The announcement came via the official Monster Hunter Twitter account with an image of the planned updates for the next few months (see below). On the PC, players will be getting much of the content that's already been added to the consoles (such as Rajang and Safi'jiiva) over the next couple months, while console players will get a few special event quests to bide the time until April. Then, once Title Update 3 drops, both PC and console players will be getting new Arch-Tempered and Master Rank monsters to hunt along with a new festival. After that, all versions of the game will see the return of a "fan-favorite monster" in May, and more monsters and other updates after that.

Check Out The Snappy Latest LEGO Star Wars TrailerĀ 

about X hours ago from

LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga has yet to receive a release date, but the newest trailer (below) does an impeccable job of showcasing the warm, family-friendly fun that comes with LEGO; both the games and the plastic toys themselves. Although the trailer is light on gameplay, the finished product will likely be full of memorable moments to be had as it will encompass the main nine Star Wars films in digital plastic form across PC, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One and PlayStation 4 when it comes out later in 2020.While little is known about The Skywalker Saga at this point, the last LEGO Star Wars game that came to us, Lego Star Wars: The Force Awakens, tracked the respective film rather than extending to multiple movies. Further, both Rouge One and Solo have been glossed over in receiving a LEGO video game entry, so whether The Skywalker Saga will acknowledge those films on some capacity remains to be seen. Will you be grabbing your friends for digital plastic fun, or have you worn thin on how much more time you want to spend in the most popular galaxy far, far away?

New Gameplay Trailer for Magic: Legends Shows Two Playable Classes

about X hours ago from

The first gameplay trailer for Magic: Legends dropped this week, giving us our first glimpses of two of the (initially) planned five playable classes - the Geomancer and the Mind Mage. Much of the action has a distinct Diablo-vibe to it, though there are a couple things in the trailer that help to root it in the Magic universe.In the initial announcement, developer Cryptic Studios and publisher Perfect World Entertainment revealed that players would assemble a deck of cards that comprise the spells they'll cast as they play. It wasn't clear how any of that would work, but the new trailer does show a little bit of that in action. If you watch the spell icons in the bottom-right of the trailer, you'll notice that they will change as spells are cast; the idea being that you're using that spell and then drawing a new one to replace it from your deck. How that works is discussed to some degree in the impressions article from Game Informer that is part of their cover story on the title this month. One stand-out from that piece is players will be limited to using just two colors (Black, White, Blue, Green, and Red) in their decks, so no Bants, Junds, or Grixis here.The MMO action RPG will be entering beta sometime this Spring, and you can head over to the official website to sign up for a chance to get in.

Fixes for CPU Usage and Corrupt Save Data Are Incoming for Monster Hunter: World

Fixes for CPU Usage and Corrupt Save Data Are Incoming for Monster Hunter: World

The Iceborne expansion for Monster Hunter: World finally arrived on PC last week (4 months after its console debut), and the initial response was not great. For some players, the game was nearly unplayable as they noticed their CPU usage went through the roof, while others were greeted with a message that the title was unable to read their existing save data and would they like to create new data (the official answer to that is: NO!) Capcom was quickly made aware of these issues and the Monster Hunter development team has been working on fixes. A couple of days ago, the official Monster Hunter Twitter account let everyone know that an update will be out soon to address both of these problems.Update 10.12.01 will fix the CPU and save issues for PC players, though it's not known when that update will go live just yet. In the mean time, with specific regards to the save issue, Capcom has recommended that players shut down the game should they get a message stating that existing save data cannot be read and if they would like to create new save data. Once the update gets applied, this should fix the issue so players can pick up again where they left off. For any players that did create new save data and therefore lost their old save data... I'm afraid there isn't any good news here. Hopefully you're enjoying your time with your new hunter and Palico?

If you had May 15, 2020 circled on your calendar and have just been counting down the days until you'll be able to play Marvel's Avengers, go ahead and get your correction fluid, remove that circle, and put a new one on September 4, 2020 (maybe use pencil). Crystal Dynamics announced via Twitter that they need a little more development time "focusing on fine tuning and polishing the game to the high standards our fans expect and deserve."
