Kena: Bridge Of Spirits Offers Unlockable Hats For Your Adorable Friends

Yesterday, we did a deep dive on Kena: Bridge of Spirits' adorable Rot companions. During your adventure, you will collect around 100 of these cuties, who will do everything from lending a hand in combat to helping Kena get past environmental obstacles. The Rot will follow Kena as she explores, so as your army gets bigger, it's a thrill to see these critters following behind. One way you can add some extra flavor is by purchasing hats for each Rot with gems you find in the world. This is purely a cosmetic feature, but gives you a fun way to differentiate them from each other, as you can outfit each individual Rot with its own hat.

You can purchase hats by stopping at little cart that sells them in your hub village, find them out in the world, or unlock special ones via challenges. “We give [gems] liberally, because we don’t really care too much about people buying hats, but if you wanted to buy a hat for every guy it would be pretty hard to do,” says chief creative officer Mike Grier. Note: These hats will not cost you real money. We confirmed with Ember Lab that you will get them through in-game currency and not through microtransactions.

Will The Elder Scrolls 6 Be An Xbox Series X Exclusive?

Will The Elder Scrolls 6 Be An Xbox Series X Exclusive?

After the news hit that Microsoft acquired ZeniMax, the big question was "what happens to Bethesda's biggest games?" While acquisitions usually mean exclusives, there is a big reason why The Elder Scrolls 6 might be an exception. 

Alex, GI's "largest video editor," and I recently recorded a small podcast, which can be seen at the top of the article, where we talked about the recent acquisition and what that potentially means going forward. While we clearly stated that there are definitely going to be some exclusives to come out of this, the biggest question that hit our inboxes was about The Elder Scrolls 6. 

First, some background. The statements made about the acquisition weren't just wishful thinking. I have a master's degree in business with a focus on marketing and I've been in this industry for 17 years. I'm not going to say anything, especially not to a large audience like Game Informer, unless I can back it up and have experiences that lend validity. To do otherwise is basically asking to be crucified, and trust me, gaming journalists get enough of that already. That being said, I'm also not saying my word is law. Microsoft would be well within their rights to make everything acquired an exclusive.

Fall Guys Concept Art Gives Us Nipples And Regret

Fall Guys has made jelly beans capture our hearts in a way that we never thought possible, but after recent concept art was revealed, we're thinking they are less capturing our hearts and more devouring our souls. Also, nipples. For some reason. 

Mediatonic, the studio behind Fall Guys, recently tweeted out the horrifying new images with a fullscale version and a close up of those nightmare-inducing eyes. With the reminder that these beans are over 6ft tall, this is downright terrifying: 

Well, you asked for it...
This is official lore now

Remember:

• Human shown for scale
• Fall Guys are 183cm (6ft)
• This Fall Guy is happy, look into his eyes
• We can't take it back
