Watch 7 Minutes Of Web-Swinging Gameplay From Spider-Man

Spider-Man is out on Friday, and it is a good video game that we like. One of its best elements is the web-swinging gameplay. Moving through the city just feels good. So good, in fact, that there is a chance you may never take advantage of the fast-travel system. In order to show off that facet of the game, we decided to put together a video that focuses on just that. With a video free of spoilers and our voices, you can just sit back, relax, and watch Spider-Man do his thing.

If you do want to watch a video where we share our thoughts on the game while we play it, that's an option, too. You can also find our review of Spider-Man right here.

October Cover Revealed - Call of Duty: Black Ops 4

We set out to Treyarch headquarters to go hands-on with Call of Duty: Black Ops 4's battle royale mode, Blackout. Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 doesn't have a campaign, but it's still launching with a three-pronged content assault with traditional multiplayer, multiple zombie modes, and the Blackout experience. With the genre taking the industry by storm, how would Call of Duty's polished shooting, zombies, and maps play out? We battled A.I. zombies for loot, piloted helicopters, and stockpiled gear on the back of a cargo truck, all while trying to survive to the final action-packed circle.

Our October issue is packed with every detail on the Blackout experience from over two hours of wild gameplay, including how perks and weapons are handled, character progression, vehicle elements, map locations and mechanics,  and much much more. 

Starting this week, we'll have exclusive online content on Blackout and Black Ops 4 to support the cover story, including features, interviews, and more. Look for content to hit hard and fast this week in anticipation of the upcoming Blackout beta.

10 Guaranteed Spoiler-Free Screenshots From Our Time With Spider-Man

There is a lot to say about Spider-Man, but unfortunately, ahead of release, talking about those things would lead to far too many spoilers and I know you don't want to read those. But I bet you want to read something about Spider-Man before you actually get your hands on it. To help you with that, I have put together a collection of screenshots I took while playing, but have been very careful to avoid any and all spoilers, so feel free to look at these images guilt-free.

If you were to flip this around, there might be something really important in the frame. Or Spider-Man could just be doing some frame-shopping. You won't know until the game comes out!

This is a big one that I was hesitant to include, but this world does in fact contain furniture.

Eight Tips To Set You Forth On Your Dragon Quest XI Adventure

Eight Tips To Set You Forth On Your Dragon Quest XI Adventure

The launch of Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age is just around the corner, and awaiting you is a meaty adventure with plenty to do around every corner. After I spent over 100 hours with the game, I’m here to share my knowledge so you can put your best foot forward. Whether you’re a longtime fan or newcomer, here are some tips that will help prepare you for the journey ahead. 

The game starts off fairly easy, so you won’t see the impact of grinding until later in the game, but it’s good to get in the habit of doing a few extra battles here and there. Using the dash ability to get around enemies and to your next locale is tempting, but make sure you take time to fight monsters of every type. Enemies can drop essential ingredients for crafting, and keeping your level up will help you in the long run, especially in terms of unlocking powerful skills.  

That being said, there will be times where you’ll have to be conservative in dungeons with how many baddies you battle, so don’t overdo it to the point where you drain all your MP. For those wondering when it’s a good time to take in a few extra battles, I recommend whenever you see a campfire and using that to your advantage since you can save and heal your party for free.

ChewbaccaLemma Talks Madden Ultimate Team

Madden came out last month, but for the game's Ultimate Team mode things are just getting started. This year developer EA Tiburon has overhauled certain aspects like the upgrading of power up cards via training points, and users appear to be happy with the content rolled out so far.

One of the gamers who has their finger on the pulse of the mode – whether that's the gameplay meta, the player cards themselves, or how to snipe in the auction house for coins galore is Daniel "ChewbaccaLemma," YouTuber and co-host of the Muthead podcast.

We recently talked to Daniel about the mode, from his thoughts on Madden's overall gameplay to what he thinks are some of the must-have players in Ultimate Team.

Seen At PAX West 2018

PAX West 2018 is happening in Seattle right now and there is lots to see and do. We can't help you with the 'do' part of that equation if you're not at the show, but we can take care of the 'see' part if you're interested.

That's one big smile for a face-full of tears.

It's a Torchlight thing!

We Played 9 Holes Of Fortnite Minigolf At PAX West

Fortnite is a big huge game that everyone is playing, which is why Epic decided, rather than have the game available to play at PAX West, it would create a different kind of Fortnite game and Dan Tack and I were able to take it for a spin.

There were nine holes of minigolf all modeled after Fortnite.

A bit of trivia – this is what the bus looks like when it is on the ground and is integrated into a minigolf hole.
