How To Play As A Shark In Grand Theft Auto V

We now know the location of 10 peyote plants. My latest find is located on the ocean floor just off of Del Perror Pier. You'll need to come at this one from an angle to avoid drowning. I consumed this plant twice and turned into a dolphin and a hammerhead shark. Yes, the shark is equipped with a bite function.

We still have 17 peyote plant locations to go. Keep sending in your findings! If this secret holds true to the other collectibles in Grand Theft Auto V, something amazing likely awaits at the end of this scavenger hunt.

Check our archive for more peyote plant locations. And watch the video below to see the exact location of the underwater peyote plant.

A Poképoem About The Absurd Reasons Trainers Pick Fights

In the world of Pokémon, few have social anxiety, and even fewer know how to properly begin a conversation. As it turns out, the fear of strangers dissipates when everyone has the technology to command and train a small animal to fight for them. Simply walking around becomes an invitation to battle Pokémon everywhere you go – even while swimming.

These are just a few of the confusing conversation openers competing trainers have used to introduce themselves and start battles during my time with Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire. And I decided to make them rhyme.

[New Videos Added] How To Play As A Bird, Dog & Cow In Grand Theft Auto V

Bran Stark from Game of Thrones isn't the only character who can enter the mind of a bird. To accomplish this feat, you need to track down one of 27 pieces of peyote hidden across San Andreas in the PlayStation 4 or Xbox One version of the game. After consuming this drug, Franklin, Trevor, or Michael will transform into a bird. We don't know what type of transformations or hallucinations the other peyote pieces bring.

Since the peyote is a collectible, it's a one-time use item. I soared through the sky as a bird for a minute before ending its life by crashing it into the ground. I unfortunately didn't get video of it, but I can show you exactly where to go to get your first piece of peyote. Take the gondola to the top of the mountain, veer off to the side, and go to the two red flags shown in the video below. As soon as you approach the flags, it will prompt you to take the peyote. No, I am not making this up. Let us know if you find any more peyote locations.

Where To Find The First Clue In Grand Theft Auto V's New Murder Mystery

The hunt for new content in Grand Theft Auto V continues. Today, we stumbled upon the first clue in Michael's murder mystery mission. We have no idea what it means, or where to go from here, but the first step has been made. You can find it at the Gentry Manor Hotel. Use the side entrance and look at the exterior wall of the house to the left of the mini-pool.

If you find any more clues (which are prompted by a save), send them our way. We can't wait to see where this mystery leads! Additionally, we're still looking for peyote plant locations.

Test Chamber – The First Eight Levels Of Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker

Everyone's favorite little fungus finally has his own game. Toad's diorama mini-levels from Super Mario 3D World were some of the most memorable asides of the whimsical four-player platformer, and now there's a standalone game packed full of them. We couldn't help but boot up the game to get a taste of Toad and Toadette's charming new adventure.

Join Kyle Hilliard, Ben Reeves, and myself as we hunt for treasure alongside Captain Toad in this episode of Test Chamber. The game doesn't release on the Wii U until December 5, so enjoy this video preview while you wait for the game to launch.

Test Chamber – Watch Dogs For Wii U

Test Chamber – Watch Dogs For Wii U

The Wii U version of Watch Dogs has been a long time coming. As one of the last triple-A titles that Ubisoft plans to bring to Nintendo's current-gen console, the GamePad-enabled port is releasing roughly six months after the other versions. And we do mean roughly. How does it fare? Watch the video to find out.

Andrew Reiner, Wade Wojcik, and I head back to the mean (and now almost deserted) streets of Chicago to once again put unlikable vigilante Aiden Pearce through his paces. The Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions of Watch Dogs already took a performance hit compared to their new-gen counterparts, and the latest version continues the downward spiral; while the gameplay is largely the same, the Wii U version suffers from poor lighting, blurry textures, and choppy framerates that affect gameplay. So does the button layout, which has me constantly jumping out of moving vehicles. Actually, that last one might be my own fault...

How To Find The Treasures Of Draenor

about X hours ago from

One of the new systems at play in World of Warcraft: Warlords of Draenor is the zones have hundreds of hidden, collectible treasures stashed away. You’re likely to stumble around a few randomly via traditional leveling and zone exploration, but you’re probably going to want to go back and collect as many as you can for garrison resources even at level 100.

It’s actually better to pick them up as you level using an add-on like HandyNotes with Draenor Treasures because you’ll also be picking up quite a bit of experience by looting them. If you want to be a purist, however, or not mess with add-ons, Blizzard has a method to collect them all in the game that’s not really obvious.

In your main Draenor faction city you’ll find a merchant selling treasure maps at the reasonable price of 100 gold each, these will mark all treasures on the associated zone on your map when used. The catch is, you’ll have to have completed the majority of quests in the zone in order to purchase the map. You can check out the Horde vendor here and the Alliance vendor here.

This has been a long time coming. Way back in August, when PC editor Dan Tack and I were in Germany for Gamescom, we discussed a weekly MOBA stream.

Tonight we kick off the little project we’ve been jokingly calling “MOBA Date Night” (so named, because our schedules are so busy we needed to schedule it way in advance). It’s a chance for us to hang out and casually play, all while Dan gives me some tips on how not to embarrass myself.

Come along and join us HERE at 6 p.m. Pacific / 9 p.m. Eastern for an intimate night of Blizzard’s in-development MOBA, Heroes of the Storm. 

Ten Franchises That Would Rule In First Person

about X hours ago from

When Rockstar first announced it would release GTA V for the next wave of consoles, I was excited for players who had somehow missed out the first time around. The game would undoubtedly look and run better on the new systems and would probably have some nice extras to tempt fans of the original to buy it again. However, I felt like I didn't need to explore Los Santos again.

Then Rockstar announced a first-person mode for GTA V, and I knew I had to experience that. By placing its open-world opus in the first-person, Rockstar has breathed new life into the title, but the game industry shouldn't stop there, here are 10 other franchises that could benefit from a first-person mode.

Assassin’s Creed – First-person worked for GTA V, so it should work for one of the industry's other big open-world franchises. Mirror's Edge helped pioneer first-person parkour, so we're sure the platforming would work. The best parts of Assassin's Creed have always been planning an assassination and then working your way through a crowd or scaling the interior of a church unnoticed before dropping down on your target and spilling their blood on the floor; a first-person mode could bring the tension of these scenes to a whole new height.
