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.

Destiny 2's Next Balance Update Nerfs Nova Warp And Blade Barrage Supers, Buffs Most Others

Destiny 2's Next Balance Update Nerfs Nova Warp And Blade Barrage Supers, Buffs Most Others

Destiny 2's first major update since their announced split with publisher Activision is coming soon, and it's shaking up how we think about the current supers meta.

The big focus of the update, which hits January 29, is supers and subclass abilities. Most notably, the damage of the two most notorious super abilities in Forsaken right now, the Warlock's Nova Warp and the Hunter's Blade Barrage supers, are getting toned down and made harder to use. Nova Warp, which allows Warlocks to make short-distance teleports around the map and cause large, deadly explosions, has had its movement speed slowed down, its damage reduced in the Crucible (it won't be able to kill players during their own supers if that super provides damage resistance), and each explosion uses up more super energy, reducing the super's overall duration. This makes it less of a instant-win option for void Warlocks, as it now has to contend with other supers, and players will have to think more carefully about when to unleash it.

Fallout 76 Developer Room Discovered Containing Every Item In The Game

Fallout 76 Developer Room Discovered Containing Every Item In The Game

It doesn't seem like Fallout 76 will ever catch a break, as even something as simple as patching out an exploit to stop item duplication is just a precursor to another shoe dropping. From a story posted by Eurogamer, it appears that there are other ways to get items in the game: by finding the secret developer room and just taking them from their infinite supply.

Developer rooms are usually spaces within a game where the developers can test various things or store objects not in use. It basically provides a scalable space to experiment while making the game. A few days ago, people began to whisper about its existence in Fallout 76 on Reddit, with more and more people searching for it. When people eventually got there, they found every blueprint in the game and a single human NPC, the only one in the entire world of Fallout 76, standing there.

It's literally the plot of Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade.

Replay – Iron Mans

Replay – Iron Mans

In 2008, Marvel released Iron Man, which kicked off the Marvel Cenematic universe and rocketed the comic character into a new level of fame. That same year, Sega released a video game adaptation. It was similar to the movie in a lot of ways, but quality was not one of those ways.

Join Andrew Reiner, Suriel Vazquez, Leo Vader, and Ben Reeves (who might be the real Iron Man for playing these games) as they play through the first two Iron Man games, dream about future games, and fight Iron Man's greatest villian: poor flight controls.
