How To Access Hollow Knight's Godmaster DLC

Hollow Knight got its last piece of free DLC this week as an update to the well-received indie game. Much like the games it takes inspiration from, Hollow Knight hides access to the DLC in a way that isn't necessarily easy to find. Luckily, we played through some of it to lend a hand.

The main area of the Godmaster DLC is a zone called the Junk Pit. You're going to head toward the Flukemarm, the large Fluke-birthing boss in the Royal Waterway, and look for a crack in the room just outside her lair in the ceiling. Smashing it open reveals a maze-like room that leads to the Junk Pit. If you have a simple key, of which there are three in the base game, you can just walk right in. If you used all three keys already, then there's a stop you need to make first.

Take the stag to King's Station and make your way up to the Colosseum of Fools. You usually enter the colosseum from the left, but this time drop down to the waiting area, head to the east side of the room, and climb up. Break the wall on the right of the new room and follow an NPC for a new simple key. Now you can return to the Royal Waterways and the Junk Pit just beyond.

Reader Discussion: Which Battle Royale Game Are You Most Looking Forward To?

A quick look at Twitch daily streaming numbers confirms what most of us already knew - battle royale games like Fornite and PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds are still massively popular. But those huge player bases could soon be split among several more games. 

Later this year, Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 will join the fight for battle royale supremacy with its Blackout mode. Battlefield V also has a battle royale mode coming in the near future, and several lower-profile titles like Housemarque's Stormdivers and Automaton's Mavericks: Proving Grounds are also preparing to skydive into the competition. 

Which, if any, of these new battle royale titles are you most interested in trying? Do you expect one of them to become a destination mode for you, or are you more likely to stick with Fortnite or PUBG? Share your thoughts in the reader section below.

Science-Fiction Weekly – Star Wars Resistance, Star Trek Discovery, Marvel Cinematic Universe, State Of Mind

Science-Fiction Weekly – Star Wars Resistance, Star Trek Discovery, Marvel Cinematic Universe, State Of Mind

The company that likes selling stormtrooper toys to collectors is back with a new television series, and more importantly, a brand-new stormtrooper color! If you loved Captain Phasma's shiny silver armor, wait until you see the shiny gold stormtrooper! This First Order soldier will make his or her debut in Star Wars Resistance, a new ongoing series coming on October 7 to Disney Channel, Disney NOW, Disney Channel VOD, and later airing on Disney XD. I love the idea of stormtroopers customizing their gear, but introducing an all-gold stormtrooper in the same time frame as Phasma's reign diminishes her unique stance in the Star Wars universe.

Resistance takes place before the events of Star Wars: The Force Awakens. An eagle-eyed fan who studied Star Wars' website code, believes the show takes place six short months before the film. Oscar Isaac is lending his voice to Poe Dameron, and Gwendoline Christie returns as Phasma, hopefully getting more screen time than she did in her two films.

The company that likes selling stormtrooper toys to collectors is back with a new television series, and more importantly, a new stormtrooper design! If you loved Captain Phasma's shiny silver armor, wait until you see the shiny gold stormtrooper! This First Order soldier will make his or her debut in Star Wars Resistance, a new ongoing series coming on October 7 to Disney Channel, Disney NOW, Disney Channel VOD, and later airing on Disney XD. I love the idea of stormtroopers customizing their gear, but introducing an all-gold stormtrooper in the same time frame as Phasma's reign diminishes her unique stance in the Star Wars universe. Some people are saying the gold stormtrooper could be the product of yellow lighting, and may in fact be Phasma, but it doesn't look like that to me. Her cloak isn't present, and the environment doesn't appear to be lit in any way. It looks more like the limited edition Hot Toys collectible.

Wakanda Forever! Why We Need A Black Panther Game

Wakanda Forever! Why We Need A Black Panther Game

No superhero film has grossed more than Marvel Studios’ Black Panther. With an impressive $700 million earned in the U.S. box office, Black Panther ranks as the third-highest grossing film of all time, trailing only Star Wars: The Force Awakens ($936 million), and Avatar ($760 million).

The immense success of this film took everyone by surprise. Disney’s CEO Bog Iger tweeted that “the world has embraced Black Panther, which has obliterated expectations, broken records, and shattered myths. Powerful storytelling that touches hearts, bridges cultures, and opens minds.” More people went to see it than any Batman, Iron Man, or Spider-Man film. Let that sink in for a second.

Black Panther’s stratospheric rise in popularity should lead to a video game. The fact that we don’t have one yet is absurd. When I sat in the theater watching the film, I continually found myself saying this hero, world, and story are perfect for video games. He has the superhuman strength of Wolverine, and he’s decked out in armor that rivals Iron Man’s. Who wouldn’t want to take control of that kind of might?

Great Games To Play With Kids

Great Games To Play With Kids

The opportunity to share tabletop gaming with the kids in your life is a not-to-be-missed chance for making memories. In my experience, children relish the chance to play games as a family. Their imagination is set loose on the concepts of the game, they often relish the chance to learn clear rules and gain mastery, and perhaps most importantly, it’s something they can do together with you.

Many of us grew up on classic games like Battleship, Sorry, Jenga, or Connect Four. While there’s nothing  wrong with any of those familiar older games, recent years have brought us an array of fantastic new ways to enjoy gaming, even with the youngest players.

If you’re curious about ways to introduce board gaming into your family’s routine, here are some of my recent favorites, including recommended ages.
