Darksiders III Update Adds Classic Combat Mode For Series Fans

Darksiders III Update Adds Classic Combat Mode For Series Fans

Gunfire games, the ex-Vigil developers who created Darksiders III under THQ Nordic, released an update to the game that allows players to switch combat to what they have dubbed "Classic" style.

The new update, which prompts a choice when players start a new game or load up a save with the update installed, asks players to pick between Default and Classic modes. While default functions the same as the game has since launch, Classic is described as a mode similar to previous games.

The current method forces players to commit to their attacks in a manner similar to Dark Souls or Monster Hunter: World. Classic allows players to dodge during attacks, meaning you can start an attack without having to finish it, massively cutting down your vulnerability window. You can also use items instantly in Classic mode, making for a decidedly easier experience.

Grab Free Anime Seasons Like Dragon Ball Super And My Hero Academia On Xbox One Today

In a weird bit of brand synergy, Funimation, an anime localization and licensing company wholly owned by Sony, has a deal going with Microsoft to release the first seasons of several shows for free on the Xbox One and Windows. All you have to do is click on them now and you own them for good.

There's a couple of series you can check out right now. If you're a Dragon Ball fan but haven't checked out Super yet, you can dip your toes into Dragon Ball Super with the first season right here, which is about 13 episodes. If you don't know the difference between a Goku and a Gohan, much less whatever a Piccolo might be, you can start with the first season of Dragon Ball Z for free right here.

You can also give My Hero Academia a try with 13 episodes of the Uncut version. It's a good primer to introduce you to the world of quirks and Deku's quest to become a symbol of peace for the populace at large. There's Assassination Classroom, as well, which I quite enjoyed the manga of but can't really speak to the animated version. It tells the story of a monster that has made a deal with the government to teach a high school class which is tasked with killing him before the end of the year.

Final Fantasy XIV 4.5 Trailer Hints At What To Expect Next Month

Square Enix has released a trailer for Final Fantasy XIV's 4.5 update, a precursor to next summer's massive Stormbringers expansion. The update, which is scheduled for next month, has a number of big changes and readies players for the Blue Mage job class coming shortly after.

Take a look at the trailer for the update below.

The update is set to arrive on January 8, with the Blue Mages coming the following week. The new job class is a little more limited than a lot of players were like, emphasizing solo play as Blue Mages learn skills from enemy monsters throughout the game. When they hit level 50, the current level cap for the job class, players will have content called The Masked Carnivale to tide them over until Stormbringers.

Celeste Leads January’s Free Xbox Games With Gold Lineup

Celeste Leads January’s Free Xbox Games With Gold Lineup

Microsoft has revealed its free Xbox Games With Gold lineup for January, and fans of challenging platformers should start warming up their thumbs now. Matt Makes Games’ indie hit Celeste headlines the free Xbox One offerings, and will be available for download starting on January 1.  Ben Reeves scored Celeste a 9, saying, “I never grew tired of even the basic platforming sections thanks to the tight controls and the wide variety of aerial maneuvers. Jumping across a bottomless pit and then dashing up to find purchase on the side of a narrow pillar is incredibly harrowing, and Celeste is filled to the brim with exciting moments.”

Starting on January 15, Xbox One owners can also download WRC 6 World Rally Championship. If you’ve never played a rally racing game, I recommend trying one out – they’re basically like a normal racing game, only you’re supposed to be on the brink of losing control and flying off the road at all times.

As for the Xbox 360 offerings, fans can pick up Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light (Jan 1), which scored excellently back in 2010, and Far Cry 2 (Jan 16), which has become a divisive classic for the series – just make sure you stock up on malaria shots before venturing out.
