Weekend Warrior – Let’s Talk Turkey

The office is full of hectic energy as we move towards Thanksgiving week. Most editors have barricaded themselves at their desks to finish their work before getting down to serious turkey-preparing business. Even so, we still have time for video games like Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu & Eevee, Hitman 2, and Red Dead Redemption II.

Do you have any plans this weekend? Let us know in the comments below!

Brian Shea (@BrianPShea) – I just emerged from a review tunnel with Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu & Eevee, so I’m looking forward to getting back to Red Dead Redemption II. Outside of that, I’m planning on starting Fallout 76 and checking out Hitman 2. Also, Tetris Effect has served as the perfect end to my nights recently, so I'll be sure to play more of that. Oh, and Overwatch. Always Overwatch.

Bethesda Outlines Near-Future Roadmap For Fallout 76

Bethesda Outlines Near-Future Roadmap For Fallout 76

Fallout 76 released just this week, but Bethesda is already hard at work on improvements it can bring to the online post-apocalyptic title. The first patch is set to hit on November 19, but the most requested fan updates aren't hitting until later.

The November 19 patch will focus on game performance and stability across every platform, but will also fix some quests, UI elements, and more. Bethesda warns that the patch will be a large download, but future patches won't be nearly as big.

Bethesda also wants to increase the stash limit in the next few weeks. The development team initially capped the stash to limit the number of items the game had to track moving through the world, but the team thinks it has ideas that will work to fix this oft-requested change to work in both short- and long-term.

Pokémon Go Adds Special Questline To Acquire New Mythical Pokémon Meltan

The mysterious, new mythical Pokémon Meltan is now able to be acquired in Pokémon Go through a couple of different methods. The initial announcement hinted that Meltan would only be obtainable through using the Pokémon Go integration in the newly released Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu & Eevee, but Niantic has announced a more conventional route to adding the steel-type monster to your collection.

Must like the Mew, Celebi, and Spiritomb questlines, players can now acquire Meltan through Special Research tasks. The questline, titled "Let's Go, Meltan" consists of nine stages. You may want to complete the quests sooner rather than later, though, as some of the Pokémon required to complete the stages will be more common through November 27.

Players who bought Pokémon: Let's Go in hopes of acquiring a Meltan before everyone else can likely take solace in evolving the new creature faster than anyone else; Meltan requires 400 candies in order to evolve, and doesn't cough up a single candy until you've walked 20 km with it as your buddy. With Let's Go, you can get 30 minutes of Meltan spawns per week using the Mystery Box item provided when you trade a Pokémon from Pokémon Go to Pokémon: Let's Go using the Go Park in Fuchsia City.

Devil May Cry Show Coming From Castlevania Producer

Devil May Cry Show Coming From Castlevania Producer

A few weeks ago, Castlevania Netflix producer Adi Shankar teased a new adaptation with a Japanese video game company. While the rumor at the time was that Shankar had procured the rights to The Legend of Zelda, the producer and IGN revealed today that it will actually be Devil May Cry that gets the next TV show treatment.

In an interview with IGN, Shankar admitted Castlevania "did crazy well," paving the way for Capcom's crazy party to get the green light. There aren't many details on how exactly Devil May Cry will get adapted, as Castlevania is based on a Warren Ellis script penned by the writer in the early 2000s. Shankar did say that his personal investment in the series means he gets more creative license with the property.

It wouldn't be the first time that DMC had gotten adapted, though, as a seemingly-canon anime aired in 2007 and tells the story of Dante's devil-hunting business before the events of Devil May Cry 4. Characters from that animated series are referenced in Devil May Cry 5.

Yoshida emphasized that the Warrior of Light has to become the Warrior of Darkness in the new content.

You can find the teaser trailer for the expansion below.

Stormbringers, uh, brings with it multiple new jobs that Yoshida decided not to announce yet. The shirt he wore had a picture of Bugs Bunny, which Yoshida showed off when hinting at a new playable race, most likely the Viera, rabbit-people from Ivalice. He indicated this would be the last new playable race they are likely to add.

Sponsor Drops Former Street Fighter V Champion In Light Of Domestic Abuse Allegations

Update 11/16: Capcom has clarified to Game Informer that Seon-woo's removal from this and next year's Capcom Pro Tour "was the agreed upon by Capcom, Panda Global and Infiltration - not solely determined by Infiltration on his side."

Original Story: Lee "Infiltration" Seon-woo has been banned from competing in Capcom's Street Fighter V pro circuit, and has had his contract with sponsor Panda Global terminated, in light of a recent charge of domestic violence.

The issue first came to light in September, when an anonymous Reddit user alleged Seon-woo had been assaulting his ex-wife since September of last year, after his loss in that year's Evo tournament. They alleged Seon-woo "blamed his wife for his loss in the tournament," and had destroyed her property and attacked her. "One day she tried to call police but Infiltration snatched her phone and choked her to near death and dragged her out of the apartment but fortunately neighbor saw him beating his wife and called police," the user said.
