Specialization Ammo Scarcity Fix Coming To The Division 2 Soon

Specialization Ammo Scarcity Fix Coming To The Division 2 Soon

After The Division 2's Tidal Basin update last week, players noticed something fishy about specialization ammo drops. Once available in abundance, suddenly players felt lucky if they got merely a couple of these on the same mission run. This dramatic change was made all the more evident when you consider the fact that the ammo stock for the demolitionist, survivalist, or sharpshooter weapons doesn't carry over when you log out or join another player's party. 

During today's State of the Game stream, Ubisoft said this issue is being resolved quickly and should be corrected by tomorrow or shortly thereafter. 

Outside of easy hotfixes like that, Ubisoft plans to address a few other issues with a 2.1 title update in the near future. This patch will fix a bug where players were unable to fast travel to the defunct castle settlement, fix the crafting bench bug that has prevented players from upgrading it, and address the sudden breakout of bugged-out t-pose enemies. 

Resident Evil 2 DLC Allows Players To Unlock Everything

Resident Evil 2 DLC Allows Players To Unlock Everything

There is a lot of content in Resident Evil 2 if you want to unlock everything. To get to the game's Hunk or Tofu modes, costumes, or guns, you have to play the game a lot and you have to do it well. That's not necessarily feasible for everyone, especially if you own the game on different platforms because you found you liked performance better on a different one. 

Much like the various unlockables in Devil May Cry 4: Special Edition, Capcom is offering a shortcut. You can now pay $4.99 for an All In-Game Rewards Unlock item. This unlocks all the stuff in the game that would otherwise require beating, say, a second run with Claire or Leon or beating the game on Hardcore difficulty. Another way to look at it is that everything the unlock DLC is offering can be earned in the game.

The official store listing shows the unlocks as "Extra 'The 4th Survivor', Extra 'The Tofu Survivor', Costume, ∞ Bonus Weapon, Model, Concept Art." The items have various unlock conditions within the game.

Super Smash Bros. Commercial Leaks Stage Builder Mode

Super Smash Bros. Commercial Leaks Stage Builder Mode

On Nintendo's YouTube channel today, the first-party Mario maker released a new TV commercial showing off Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. The commercial focused on play with friends, where a kid unlocks Inkling in his own game and then beats all his friends using the character. You can watch the ad below.

In the first second of the commercial, however, when the kid is grabbing the controller off the TV stand, the TV screen shows a new mode tucked away in the corner: Stage Builder. Also, yes, I could have picked a better thumbnail for the reupload of that video, but this one made me laugh.

Stage Builder has shown up in datamines for a while and has long been expected to be a part of the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate 3.0 update, which was teased during the last general Nintendo Direct. The mode debuted in Brawl on the Wii and was also present in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U, but apparently didn't make launch for the Switch game. It allows players to create and play on custom stages and make your friends suffer through them, too. You can watch us play with it in the video below.

Batman's Arkham Asylum Design Is Back As A Black & White Statue

Batman's Arkham Asylum Design Is Back As A Black & White Statue

It's hard to believe it has been ten years since Batman: Arkham Asylum flipped superhero games on their head. Even today, people argue about which game in the series is their favorite (I'm personally on team Asylum), speaking to the overall quality of all of Rocksteady's Batman series. Now you can celebrate your love for the series with a new black & white statue showing the Arkham series design.

The statues is based off an Arkham City design from a few years ago, but tweaks the design to better match the stylish box art of Arkham City itself.

Ubisoft CEO Believes That There Would Be Too Much Pressure On A New Splinter Cell

Ubisoft CEO Believes That There Would Be Too Much Pressure On A New Splinter Cell

Ubisoft is no stranger to keeping franchises alive as long as they make sense. While it would be nice to get a new Prince of Persia or something like it, games like Rayman Origins and Beyond Good & Evil 2 show that nothing is ever completely off the table at Ubisoft. Still, with as much smoke as there has been about Splinter Cell returning, by both Ubisoft and by potential leaks, it is weird that Sam Fisher is still out in the dark. One problem, apparently, is that Ubisoft isn't quite sure what to do with a new Splinter Cell game.

In an interview with IGN, Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot confessed that fans have a lot of expectations for what the game can and should be and Ubisoft's developers have some anxiety about meeting those expectations. It's been a while since players last took control of Sam Fisher and the game industry has changed quite a bit in that time.

"When you create a game, you have to make sure you will come with something that will be different enough from what you did before," Guillemot told IGN. "The last time we did a Splinter Cell, we had lots of pressure from all the fans saying don't change it, don't do this, don't do that, so some of the teams were more anxious to work on the brand."

U.S. Politician Banned From Eve Online After Corruption Scandal

U.S. Politician Banned From Eve Online After Corruption Scandal

People in Eve Online take the game very seriously. There's shifts depending on time zone, corporate espionage, wars that are waged based on when a company's leaders are asleep, and now corruption and subsequent bans for them. While the idea of corruption is not new, the fact that it appears to be a U.S. politician at the other end of the ban this time around.

Brian Schoeneman once ran for a seat in the Virginia house of delegates in the 37th district in 2011. Schoeneman was uncontested in the primary and ran as a Republican, though ultimately lost in general election. But more relevantly, Schoeneman was living an online life as Brisc Rubal, intergalactic member of Council of Stellar Management (CSM), an elected position from which he has now been ousted.

The news comes from an actual post from Eve Online developers CCP on their website, explaining that Rubal has been removed for various transgressions, like breaking a non-disclosure agreement and using insider information for in-game profit. 

Marvel's Next Phase Of Movies Won't Include X-Men

Marvel's Next Phase Of Movies Won't Include X-Men

With just a few short weeks until Avengers: Endgame releases in theaters, fans are already curious of what lies beyond the decade-long setup for the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s biggest event. Last year's Infinity War posed a lot of questions that Endgame is poised to answer, but what comes after that? Marvel has already confirmed Spider-Man: Far From Home will be hitting this July, but has been hesitant to talk about anything beyond that.

When talking to io9, Marvel Films chief Kevin Feige did say he didn't expect an X-Men movie integrated into the Marvel Cinematic Universe in Phase 4, which is intended to last five years. Now that Disney has acquired Fox, the acquisition brings the mutant characters back to Marvel, who have long been unable to regain the movie rights to X-Men and the Fantastic Four.

"It’ll be a while," Feige told io9. "It’s all just beginning and the five-year plan that we’ve been working on, we were working on before any of that was set. So really it’s much more, for us, less about specifics of when and where [the X-Men will appear] right now and more just the comfort factor and how nice it is that they’re home. That they’re all back. But it will be a very long time."

Dead Or Alive 6 Gets Online Lobbies This Week

Dead Or Alive 6 Gets Online Lobbies This Week

When Dead or Alive 6 released at the beginning of March, it did so without online lobbies, a feature that Team Ninja and Koei Tecmo promised would come within the following weeks. This meant that players could play ranked matches against strangers, but playing with friends wasn't possible except through random chance. That changes this week, as online lobbies finally come to the game.

Lobby Match update(1.03b) has been confirmed for April 11th for all platforms. Thank you for your patience and understanding. *Time will differ according to platform and region.#DOA6 #PS4 #Xone #Steam

It is a little surprising how long this patch has taken, especially considering Dead or Alive 6 was delayed for a few weeks into March in the first place. I've been waiting for the game to let me play with friends for a while now and was pretty disappointed they couldn't make March with it.
