Overwatch Fan Creates Amazing Replica Of B.O.B.

Ashe and her robo sidekick B.O.B. have proven to be some of the most beloved (and maybe hated) additions to Overwatch's roster since the game was released. One fan, who goes by the moniker BrokenBladeWorkshop, decided to express their love by building B.O.B. You didn't misread that sentence. This person literally made a life-sized replica of the robo henchman.

Check it out here for yourself:

Well, I did something! I'm so proud of B.O.B.! As soon as I saw him at Blizzcon I knew I had to build this enormous young man. I've been playing Ashe non stop since her debut and I'm in love with her and her Omnic companion, I'm so excited to be him again!@PlayOverwatch pic.twitter.com/EOtUlEPVsQ

Proposed Time To Death Fixes And New Mode Lead Battlefield V's Next Chapter Update

Battlefield V is kicking things off in 2019 with Tides of War Chapter 2: Lightning Strikes, a new update that brings a bevy of requested changes and tweaks to the game as well as new content. The most eye-catching fix is the series of adjustments hoping to rectify the time-to-death controversy surrounding the game the past month. 

Time will tell if these changes remedy the issue, but here's the full rundown straight from DICE itself:

Alongside these proposed fixes come four new weapons that players can earn via weekly challenges during Lightning Strikes. A unique version of Conquest, Squad Conquest, also makes its way to the game. Squad Conquest features two squads of eight players each per team facing off against one another on the Arras, Rotterdam, and Hamada maps. The mode is only available temporarily, running from January 17-30, so get in soon if you want to play it. You can read the entire list of rank rewards available in Lightning Strikes here

More Details Revealed For Upcoming Celeste DLC

More Details Revealed For Upcoming Celeste DLC

We found out late last year that new, difficult levels were coming to the platformer Celeste in the form of DLC. However, details were sparse. Now, thanks to a tweet from creator Matt Thorson, we have a better idea of what to expect from the additional content.

Thorson confirmed that it won't be available in time for the game's first anniversary (January 25), so we can expect it to drop sometime after that. It will be one continuous chapter, and it won't have any B-Sides or strawberries. Instead, you can expect some new items and mechanics, though Thorson didn't specify what these will be. Best of all, the DLC will be free on all platforms.

Some Celeste DLC Chapter details: -It won't be ready for the anniversary on Jan 25th, sorry!
-It's all one continuous chapter, no B-Side
-It's after the current hardest levels in difficulty
-No strawberries
-There are some new items/mechanics
-Free on all platforms

Community Solves Destiny 2 Puzzle After Bungie Releases Hint Missing From The Game

Community Solves Destiny 2 Puzzle After Bungie Releases Hint Missing From The Game

Bungie has revealed that one of the reasons the recent Niobe Labs puzzle that had been stumping player recently was far too difficult because it was actually missing a clue the developer meant to include in the game.

The puzzle, which was eventually decoupled from the content it was meant to unlock because the community couldn't solve it,  involved teams of players working together to decode hints, follow their instructions, and move on to the next "level" of the puzzle. "Unfortunately, a string on Level 7 was improperly removed which would have provided additional information," the company said on its forums yesterday. "In lieu of this missing piece of the puzzle, we are providing the clue below to help players on their quest to complete Niobe Labs once and for all."

Shortly after the hint was revealed, the community was able to finally crack the puzzle, which, having been decoupled from the new Black Armory forge level, simply unlocked a pair of vanity items (an exotic ghost shell and an emblem).

Black Ops 4, Fortnite Lead PlayStation's Most Downloaded Games Of 2018

Black Ops 4, Fortnite Lead PlayStation's Most Downloaded Games Of 2018

Sony has released their lists of the most downloaded games of 2018 across multiple categories, and while you can probably guess the winners in most fields (you've probably downloaded them!), there are few surprises here.

It should come as no surprise that Fortnite: Battle Royale is the most downloaded free-to-play game on the service, as it's the video game of our time. And while Red Dead Redemption 2 seemed to have more excitement behind it leading up to launch, Black Ops 4 reigns supreme when it comes to sales, meaning the lack of a campaign didn't deter as many people from buying it as a battle royale encouraged them. Meanwhile, the most popular VR game on the platform is Job Simulator, followed by Beat Saber. 

Sony also released a few less obvious categories. The most popular Vita game of 2018 is, say with me... God of War: Collection! Persona 4: Golden follows right behind it, showing why Atlus should probably port it to Switch at some point. Meanwhile, the most downloaded PlayStation Classic game is Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas (not surprising), followed by Bully (predictable), and Destroy All Humans! 2 (pretty surprising, honestly). The most downloaded theme was the one for Monster Hunter: World, though I'm happy to see the Tropical Skeleton hold it down in the #10 spot. You can find the full lists for each category below.
