Exploring Beyond Resident Evil 2's Bounds Reveals Early Version Of Orphanage Area, Mr. X Roaming The Halls

Warning: The video contains spoilers for Resident Evil 2, so if you haven't played it yet and plan to, you might want to look away.

Resident Evil 2 has plenty of secrets to uncover across all of its playthroughs, but some of them require a bit of a defter touch to find.

The latest video from Youtuber Shesez catalogs a few of the interesting things you can find in the remake if you're willing to modify the game with a custom, boundary-breaking camera. For one, there's a slightly altered version of the nursery area that isn't fully textured and moves some furniture around.

PSA: Apex Legends Experiencing Server Issues On All Platforms

Apex Legends is currently experiencing server issues on all platforms, Respawn has confirmed.

The issues seem to have started a little over an hour ago. Respawn is aware of them and is currently working on a solution.

Currently, some users (though not all) are experiencing login issues, server disconnects, and other technical hiccups. As of this writing, I've personally experienced an issue where logging into the PC version of the game takes much longer than usual. If you are experiencing these issues, be aware that Respawn is working on it.

Our own Leo Vader experienced an issue where logging took longer than usual, but the first few minutes of a match seem to play out in slow-motion.

Nintendo President Cut Switch Sales Estimate Due To 'Insufficient' Efforts To Convey Console's Appeal

Nintendo President Cut Switch Sales Estimate Due To 'Insufficient' Efforts To Convey Console's Appeal

Late last month, while he was confirming that the company had no current plans to develop a new kind of Switch or cut the console's price, Nintendo president Shuntaro Furukawa was adamant the company could sell 20 million Switches by the end of this financial year (which ends March 31). He's since cut his estimate down to 17 million, citing Nintendo's "insufficient" efforts to properly convey the appeal of its latest console.

The news comes from a recent finance-oriented Q&A briefing from the company. Furukawa commented on the reason he decided to reduce the estimate. "As we look back so far (for this fiscal year), we now evaluate that our efforts to fully convey the appeal of Nintendo Switch hardware and software to the number of new consumers we originally hoped to reach were insufficient," he said. Nintendo expected that putting out a few games over the holiday season (like Super Mario Party, Pokémon Let's Go Pikachu/Eevee, and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate) would help bolster console sales, but that ended up not being enough. 

"We will talk about the next fiscal year in more detail at a later time, but basically we want to further increase both our hardware and software unit sales more than this fiscal year," Furukawa said.

Heroes Of The Storm Makes Character Skins Easier To Get, Will Keep Having Timed Events

Heroes Of The Storm Makes Character Skins Easier To Get, Will Keep Having Timed Events

Blizzard has revealed what's next for Heroes of the Storm after it announced it would be slowing down its efforts on the game.

Late last year, the company announced it was moving talent away from the HotS team and shuttering its esports circuits (both professional and collegiate) for the game. In that post, the company mentioned players could still expect new characters and events, "though the cadence will change." Yesterday, production director Kaéo Milker laid out some specifics about what that means.

The big change that will affect most players next week with the arrival of the Resistance patch is a change that will allow players to more easily purchase skins directly, some of the changes to the game with the 2.0 update making players more engaged but preventing from just buying skins they wanted outright, pushing them instead towards leveling up and earning loot boxes instead. When the update hits, all skins in the store will purchasable with the earnable Gems currency. If you have Gold in your account, you'll now be able to convert it to Gems in order to purchase the skins you want.

Rainbow Six Siege Teases Year Four, Two New Operators Potentially Leaked

Ubisoft is teasing some of the content coming with the first season of year four of Rainbow Six: Siege, but some leaks have already given us our first glimpse of what's to come.

The upcoming season, according to the publisher, will include two new operators from the SASR (Special Air Service Regiment) of the Australian army. The company describes them as a stoic Attacker who’s just there to get the job done, and the other is a quick-witted Defender who’s in it for the guts and glory," who happen to be friends. From a gameplay perspective the two new operators will have "a new device that’ll keep roaming Defenders on their toes, and one that’ll leave Attackers at a bit of a loss."

Although Ubisoft isn't saying too much else about these characters yet, Reddit has apparently found some assets of the characters on the official Ubisoft website, which points to the operators being named Mozzie and Gridlock. The names may not be final, however.
