First Gwent Expansion Crimson Curse Revealed

Gwent has had quite a path from its Witcher 3 minigame routes to now being a pretty core part of CD Projekt Red's development resources, so it makes sense that expansions would be coming sooner or later. Today, we got our first look at one of those upcoming expansions, titled Crimson Curse, and it appears to be moderately vampire-themed.

"The Blood Moon is rising," CD Projekt writes. "This is a time of the Crimson Curse, a time of madness and despair. A dark ritual performed by a mighty higher vampire Dettlaff turns the moon blood red, corrupting the land and its inhabitants. No one is safe and there’s nowhere to run — new breeds of monsters are awaking from their slumber, thirsting for blood. Will you join Dettlaff in his quest for revenge and destruction or choose to fight back and protect the innocents?"

As a general rule I feel like you probably shouldn't side with the time of madness and despair, but I'm not going to tell you how to Gwent.

EA Investigating Reports About Anthem Crashing PlayStation 4 Consoles

Over the weekend, reports began circulating over Twitter and on Anthem's subreddit about peculiar crashes happening on the PlayStation 4 version of these games. Some of these crashes reportedly shut the PlayStation 4 off completely, requiring them to be manually powered on again and the operating system to have to rebuild the saved data on it.

Today, EA acknowledged that they've received the reports and have begun looking into it.

We’re aware of a crashing issue some of you have been reporting for #AnthemGame. We’re investigating and ask that you share your crash data reports when prompted. If you have, we’ll be reaching out to gather info; if not, please reply to this thread on AHQ:https://t.co/36P21YFjYL

Sonic The Hedgehog Style Guide Gives Possible First Glimpse At Movie Design

Sonic The Hedgehog Style Guide Gives Possible First Glimpse At Movie Design

While Sonic the Hedgehog's design for the upcoming movie has been teased a few times, it was mostly shrouded in darkness or otherwise obscured. Now, thanks to a style guide, it appears we might have our first good look at what Sonic looks like in this movie. 

The pictures come from Hamagami Carroll Associates, which created a brand guide for Sonic the Hedgehog and features multiple images of the blue hedgehog in a CG form. The guide was apparently accidentally uploaded to their website and has since been taken down.

Based on the silhouette image that was teased for Sonic before, this design looks accurate, though it is impossible to say with certainly until it is officially confirmed. For some reason, instead of gloves, he just has white hands, which I am utterly baffled by.

Kingdom Hearts Director Says Marvel And Star Wars Would Be Tricky To Add

Kingdom Hearts III has been out for over a month and fans all over have gotten a chance to take journeys through all the major Disney worlds the game has to offer, at least before any DLC gets revealed. While the series branched out to Pixar with the third game, fans have been wondering whether Sora and friends will ever branch out to other Disney properties like Marvel or Star Wars. Director Tetsuya Nomura is game, but it's not that easy.

In an interview in the Ultimania book for Kingdom Hearts III, a Square Enix staple that is usually the final word on internally developed games, Nomura was asked about the possibility of Marvel and Star Wars in future games. The translation is courtesy of KH13, which put up Nomura's interview from the Ultimania book.

Forza Developer Seemingly Confirms Mobile Game

Video game announcements are so weirdly coordinated, secretive, and orchestrated that hints or hints of hints tend to send marketing departments into widespread sighing and denial. It's a little harder to deny, however, when the developers themselves accidentally make the announcement.

In a news post from Turn 10 as part of the Forza Motorsport Week in Review, the developer tried to talk about a recent esports winner, but the wrong URL was inserted into the hyperlink. The link instead directed to a page which had info about a mobile game called Forza Street.

"Developed in partnership with UK-based studio, Electric Square, Forza Street is built from the ground up to support a wide range of Windows 10, iOS, and Android devices," the description read.

Avengers: Endgame LEGO Sets Tease Battles And More

Avengers: Endgame LEGO Sets Tease Battles And More

Avengers: Endgame releases in theaters on April 26, and you know what that means: the new toys are coming! An Amazon listing for LEGO's first official toy sets give us a few ideas and lead to further questions about what to expect in the Avengers finale.

One set is based around Iron Man's hall of armor and shows several new and returning versions of his many suits. With Tony Stark last seen in dire straights in a derelict space vessel, this leads us to wonder if he finds his way home, or if these suits might potentially have different characters behind the metaphorical wheel. Additionally, the set shows a big blue mechanical suit that appears to be somewhat Hulkbuster like, and Thanos' outriders make a return to potentially finish the mission that they started in Infinity War.

Newspaper Mistakenly Uses Joke About Pokémon Gun As Real Game

Last week, Nintendo and Game Freak revealed Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield, the two new eighth generation mainline games in the series. Of course, as soon as something new Pokémon is revealed, the internet gets to work with jokes, and we very quickly had people making a joke about a third version of the game titled Pokémon Gun.

However, a newspaper in Mexico mistakenly used that joke as part of their story about the game's announcement, so innocent little Grookey is now wielding hot fire. The news comes from Twitter user @cin_ceja.
