Travis Strikes Again DLC Black Dandelion Arrives Next Week

Travis Strikes Again: No More Heroes, the isometric take on the No More Heroes formula, will be getting its first DLC next week. Players who have been enjoying director Suda51's latest title will be able to get their first taste of new content starting on February 28.

With katana in hand and two new skills, Shinobu joins #TravisStrikesAgain: #NoMoreHeroes with Vol. 1: Black Dandelion DLC, releasing next week on 2/28! Includes the new Badman Strikes Back Adventure. https://t.co/7l6zXx42Ts pic.twitter.com/pZxgJDPLcU

The second DLC focuses on Shinobu, Travis Touchdown's former opponent and modern student. Shinobu gets her own content and two skills that neither Travis nor Badman had in the main game. Additionally, each DLC comes with a text adventure, and this one is Badman's turn. Considering his involvement in the revised Killer7 opening to the game, it is possible the text adventure will shed more light on that.

Anthem's Drop Rates Raised And Then Lowered Again

Anthem's Drop Rates Raised And Then Lowered Again

On Friday, when Anthem got its day one patch last week on the actual day one of the game, or day seven if you've been playing for a week already. An unintended consequence of that patch has resulted in players on the game's Anthem subreddit and Bioware's forums arguing back and forth all weekend about whether the loot drop rates were lowered or not.

Right before the game released, Bioware sent out the first of the game's major updates, but then put out a smaller update the next day. Both updates shared the exact same notes, causing quite a bit of confusion, but fans who bought the game on Friday felt like they noticed something strange. After the second update, the loot drop rates seemed to have decreased, leading to arguments online with whether the game had a sudden stealth nerf to drop rates, with some people insisting they have and others saying it's exactly the same.

Anthem lead producer Ben Irvo came into a Reddit thread about the subject to clarify.

Microsoft Reveals New Hololens With Unreal Engine 4 Support

Microsoft Reveals New Hololens With Unreal Engine 4 Support

At a press conference in Barcelona today, Microsoft revealed the newest iteration of their Hololens headset, an augmented reality visor that creates images overlayed on to the real world. The new Hololens has some major additions and improvements to the concept and is aimed squarely at businesses for right now.

When the original headset was shown off in 2016, it suffered from the limits of technology at the time. One of the most mentioned problems was the narrow viewing area, which could only produce holograms in specific parts of the visor. This viewing area has now been doubled, meaning it's much harder to lose the overlayed hologram in your view.

The interface now eschews the swipe-based buttons of the original in favor of direct manipulation of objects. The headset itself is now simpler to put on and doesn't require the Steampunk-style knobs and dials for a good fit as the previous version did.

Fortnite Season 8 Teases Pirate Theme

After Epic kicked up the Fortnite game by promising different non-pay ways to get the battle pass, the Fortnite developer is now moving into the game's eighth competitive season. We got our first tease of the new season today and it seems to be pirate-themed.

'X' Marks The Spot Treasure abound

It seems as part of the pirate theme is hidden treasure, with X specifically marking the spot. Considering Epic's penchant for hiding hints about major events and world changes within the actual game, there may actually be a hidden treasure players have to find.

Paradox Dating App ARG Seems To Hint At Something Related To Vampire: The Masquerade Next Month

Paradox Dating App ARG Seems To Hint At Something Related To Vampire: The Masquerade Next Month

Paradox Interactive seems to be teasing something related to Vampire: The Masquerade through an ARG revolving around a blood-based dating app, and something big could come from these teases next month.

A couple of weeks ago, we saw the launch of Tender (not to be confused with the actual, now-defunct food app Tender), a curious little dating app that, among other weird quirks, asks you for your blood type and matches you with nearby sick people. Not the best idea for a dating service on its own, PC Gamer reported you could sign into the app using your Paradox account, quickly making it clear it was an alternate reality game. Paradox purchased Vampire: The Masquerade creator White Wolf Publishing back in 2015, giving them control of the series. So if someone were to tease something related to that universe through an ARG, it'd be them.

Users quickly found hidden codes embedded within some of the videos in the app, as well as leaked memos from the CEO of Tender, "Malcolm Chandler," with the latest one, from about a week ago, making some interesting "announcements."
