Destiny 2's Nightfalls To Get More Varied, Drop Rates For Dreaming City Cosmetics Increasing Soon

Bungie will soon be making it easier to get some of the more sought-after rewards required to complete Destiny 2's Triumph seals.

In their latest blog post, the developer announced they would be making certain seals easier to get in two ways. First, they are making changes to how the weekly nightfall strike activity rotates. Every week, three nightfall strikes rotate in for the week. However, many nightfalls would be on the docket for multiple weeks in a row, while others wouldn't show up for weeks. Bungie says that "moving forward," they'll be looking to address the issue, so that the seals associated with specific nightfall strikes would be easier to get.

Second, the drop rates for the ghost, ship, and sparrow cosmetics for the Dreaming City and Last Wish raid will be getting "doubled, tripled, or more for their respective activities," once the game's April 9 update hits. This should make it easier to nab the Dreaming City triumph seal, since one of the requirements is getting some of those items. One Thousand Voices, the exotic fusion rifle that drops from Last Wish will continue to be hard to get, but will have its drop rate increased slightly.

Sega Announces Multiple Games For The 2020 Tokyo Olympics

Sega Announces Multiple Games For The 2020 Tokyo Olympics

Sega has announced four separate games to coincide with the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo, though three of them are versions of the one we already know: Mario and Sonic at the Olympic Games.

In a trailer mixes footage of the four games with a quasi-inspirational montage of old Olympic footage, we see the four games in action. First, there's Olympic Games Tokyo 2020 - The Official Video Game, which looks to be a more traditional collection of games based on Olympic sports. This one has regular people compete in the games instead of iconic, disproportionate mascots. This one is coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC sometime in 2020.

From there, things get a bit funky. There's of course a new version of Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games coming this winter, but this one is Switch exclusive. If you don't own a Swtich, you can still get your fix this summer by going to an arcade to play Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games: Arcade Edition, which will probably not have Yun or Yang in it. Finally, we have the iOS version of the game, which will exclude half of series' namesake and simply be titled Sonic at the Olympic Games. That one is also out this summer.

What To Watch This Weekend - PAX East, League of Legends, And Street Fighter V

This weekend brings us another PAX, more League of Legends, and some pretty neat events in Asia.

The Northern California Regionals are a major event in many fighting game communities, so you can catch hotly contested events for Street Fighter V, Tekken 7, Dragon Ball FighterZ, Windjammers, and more. (Streams and Schedule)

The League of Legends LCS is getting serious, as we move out of the best-of-one group stage and move into the best-of-five playoffs. This means there are only two matches this weekend (one today and one tomorrow), but the stakes are higher. (Stream / Schedule)

Sega Releasing The Genesis Mini Worldwide This September

Sega Releasing The Genesis Mini Worldwide This September

Remember when miniconsoles were all the rage? Sega remembers. In 2018, the company announced an intention to get into the same miniconsole market that Nintendo reported insane sales with in 2016, 2017, and 2018, and Sony...also participated in last year. Now, the company has finally announced the details of that in what will, at least in the west, likely be called the Genesis Mini.

Sega revealed the console today on stage in Tokyo at the Sega Fes conference, highlighting that the system will come with over 40 games, including titles like Shining Force and Castlevania Bloodlines, though the American branch of the company hasn't said if a U.S. release will have a different game list or not. When the console was revealed last year, Sega announced that it would release in 2018 and be spearheaded by AtGames, infamous for the disappointing variations on the same shelf-size Genesis concept already. Sega eventually gave AtGames the boot and retooled the idea internally to come out with this.

The controller will be designed to mimic the six-button Genesis controller and be the same shape and size, while the console itself will have save states just like the other miniconsoles on the market. In Japan, it will come in different bundles for one controller or two controllers, but no U.S. pricing or bundle details have been announced yet.

Update 3/30: Sega has announced some of the 40 games that will be included in the system. More games will be announced "over the coming months."

The company also announced a few other details about the system. It's based on the original Model 1 Genesis (which is generally viewed as having better audio than later revisions), comes with all 40 games, two USB Genesis controllers, as well as power and HDMI cables.

The ports of the games on the Genesis Mini are being done by M2, who previously worked with Sega on the Sega Aces and Sega 3D Classics Collection.

All Driveclub Content Will Be Delisted From PSN In August

All Driveclub Content Will Be Delisted From PSN In August

When Driveclub released in 2014, a lot of fans took quite a liking to the game's mix of arcade and sim elements for a kind of hybrid experience. It didn't really show in sales, however, and Sony ended up closing down the developer Evolution. Now Sony has announced that all Driveclub content currently on PSN will be delisted by the end of August and the servers will be shutting down.

Revealed on their decommissioned game servers page, Sony explains that single player content will still work, but things like online multiplayer, challenges, or the actual drive clubs will not be available after the August date. At the bottom, Sony also says all content that's currently being sold on PSN for the game, which includes the game itself, bikes DLC, season pass, and standalone PSVR game, will also be removed from sale. If you own them already, you can keep them, but no one new will be able to buy them.

It's an odd choice and either speaks to a licensing agreement that has run out five years later or Sony just no longer being interested in keeping the multiplayer service open and not wanting to deal with PSN refunds for purchasers that expect online multiplayer. Regardless, if you liked Driveclub or wanted to try out the VR game but never got around to getting everything you want, you only have a few more months left on the calendar.
