Saints Row: The Third Remastered Is Headed For Release Next Month

about X hours ago from

It's been nearly nine years since Saints Row: The Third glimpsed a world in which the eponymous Saints had reached celebrity status, and what a world it was.  Luckily, we no longer have to daydream about such a place (or bust out our old consoles to explore it), because Saints Row: The Third Remastered is releasing on May 22nd.The remastering process, handled by developer Sperasoft, means nearly facet of Steelport and its inhabitants has been given a might fine facelift to make the game sparkle and shine on current generation hardware.  As you might expect, the Remastered edition also includes the game's three expansion packs and over thirty pieces of DLC, meaning players can revisit the full experience.We thought Saints Row: The Third was quite the co-op achievement when it was first released back in 2011, and one might even argue that it's the pinnacle of the series.  Regardless, this new edition offers a fun opportunity to romp around in Steelport and either relive the Saints Row brand of chaos or experience it for the first time.

about X hours ago from

Gather round, ye hunters and gatherers, for another significant title update is headed to Monster Hunter World: Iceborne.  The game's expansive, frozen wastes are getting slightly more dangerous (and rewarding) come April 23rd, when Title Update 3.5 releases.First, aspiring monster hunters will be tasked with taking on a new Master Rank quest revolving around the tracking and slaying of Kulve Taroth, a golden elder dragon.  New hunter and Palico equipment, as well as upgrade materials, are available for those wily enough to do so.  The other new addition comes in the form of the Arch-Tempered Namielle, another elder dragon whose materials can be used to construct new hunter equipment.  The update trailer lets you see these colossal foes and their associated equipment in action:Note that these quests are limited-time events, so you'll want to keep tabs on the game's quest schedule for more information on the timeframe.  We quite liked Monster Hunter: World when it was first released back in 2018, and the Iceborne expansion seems to have only added to the fun.  It's also worth mentioning that, prior to this title update, the PC and console versions weren't in sync content-wise, but Capcom is planning a simultaneous release schedule for both versions moving forward.

If you’ve been waiting to get the furniture moved out of your digital houses (and space stations) now is your chance to reserve your place in line to do just that. SMG Studios’s upcoming moving simulator, Moving Out, has gone live for pre-orders while offering four additional skins to players who buy the game in advance; Bruce, Professor Inkle, Sprinkles, and Dials. The game is currently set to release on Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC on April 28th 2020.If you’re unsure or wary of pre-orders in general, fear not. There’s a playable demo available on all platforms so potential movers can get their hands dirty and their rooms rearranged before spending their hard-earned money buying a game sight unseen. Frankly, this practice is a welcome change, as pre-orders are always something to be wary of in video games so studios ensuring people can sample before they buy is a great precedence.Will you be trying to grab three friends to help you move, or is finding people to help you move already too challenging in real life?

Monster Hunter World: Iceborne News Summary

about X hours ago from

Monster Hunter World: Iceborne has reached the convergence point wherein console and PC players are finally in step with how they experience the game. Now, with the PC version receiving Title Update 3, a big milestone has been reached on Capcom’s post-Iceborne roadmap that ensures all content/event releases across all platforms of the game would be simultaneous. You can check out a brief summary of what’s in this update over on the Steam news page, here.Last month, the PC version had the Safi'jiiva Siege added along with Awakened weapons and the Stygian Zinogre, both of which require owning and completing the Iceborne expansion’s campaign. The Safi’jiiva Siege quest is similar to the previously released Kulve Taroth siege, wherein four groups of four Hunters will work together to bring down this bigger, badder, angrier form of the original game’s final boss in true monster hunting fashion. Rewards are doled out based on how well the Siege goes and the real goal are the new Awakened weapons. This is a limited time event quest that ends on April 22, and additional details can be found here**. Stygian Zinogre, meanwhile, is a tougher version of the one encountered during the Iceborne campaign and awards the truly persistent players with materials needed for the new Palico and Zinogre equipment.
