Jackbox Party Pack 5 Has An Action/Physics Game?

The Jackbox Party Packs are known for irreverent wordplay/drawing games that are great to play with a group, like Quiplash and Fibbage. However, you can only have so much fun with letters and doodles, so it looks like the team is trying something new; today Jackbox Games revealed that the final piece of Jackbox Party Pack 5 is a slingshot-physics game called Zeeple Dome.

Making sense of the action in that trailer isn't easy, but Zeeple Dome is clearly more action-focused than Jackbox's traditional fare, with an emphasis on aliens, weapons, and explosions. Plus, it supports up to six players. 

We'll learn more about Zeeple Dome when Jackbox Party Pack 5 releases this fall. For a closer look at the title, you can see us play a round of Patently Stupid, another new creation for this year's compilation.

See The Trailer For Season 2 Of Marvel's Iron Fist

Something big is coming from Marvel on September 7. Is it Spider-Man? Yes! But if you aren't playing Insomniac's superhero adventure on that day, you can sit around and watch the second season of Iron Fist on Netflix instead. 

The first season of the show received a decidedly mixed response. Will the second turn things around? Check out the official trailer below and decide for yourself.

Warhammer: Vermintide 2 DLC Coming August 28

Developer Fatshark, the studio behind the entertaining Warhammer: Vermintide 2, has announced that the first DLC for the game is hitting later this month on Xbox One and PC. 

The addition is called Shadows Over Bogenhafen, and Fatshark has released a teaser trailer revealing the August 28 release date. However, that's about all it reveals.

The trailer doesn't give many hints regarding what the new content will be (or how much it costs), though you might be able to get a few hints from the screens below.

See How God Of War's Best Boss Fight Came Together

God of War is a great game (read our review here), and the first boss fight is an early indication of the excellent experience that awaits. In that battle, Kratos goes head-to-head with a foe called "The Stranger," and even though this opponent initially appears to be mortal, it soon becomes clear that he's something more.

The PlayStation Blog has a fascinating post from Sony Santa Monica's Denny Yeh explaining the process by which this phenomenal encounter was refined. From concept art (like the piece below) to prototype animations, the post has a detailed account of the many factors to consider when putting together such an ambitious fight.

Whether you're a God of War fan or just curious about game development, the post is definitely worth checking out.

PSVR Hits 3 Million Sales

Whatever your personal feelings on virtual reality are, you can't deny that people are intrigued by the technology. That's evidenced by Sony Interactive Entertainment's recent announcement on the PlayStation Blog that it has sold 3 million PSVR systems.

The company used the milestone as a reason to unveil a few other bits of PSVR-related info, like the announcement of two new games. The first is a boxing game called Creed: Rise to Glory, and the other is a shooter called Evasion.

The company also revealed the top 10 most-played games on PSVR. Topping the list is The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim (which we called "the worst way to experience Skyrim" in our review), but we also see titles like Job Simulator, Batman: Arkham VR, and Superhot VR.

We Asked Blizzard Which Of Their Characters They Would Want In Super Smash Bros.

We Asked Blizzard Which Of Their Characters They Would Want In Super Smash Bros.

We got a chance to sit down with Blizzard around the time of the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Direct and, with Smash Bros. on our minds and Diablo III coming to Switch, we had to ask: who would Blizzard want as a guest character in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate?

Blizzard senior producer Pete Stilwell laughed, but gave a quick answer. "Personally, yeah, I'd love to have Diablo. That to me is the immediate one. Then if we had over time, eventually the heroes, go through all of them...or you could go really awesome and only have Deckard Cain."

Joshua Wittge, Blizzard PR manager, chimed in to add "He could just whack them with the cane or put them to sleep."

Diablo III On Switch Has Exclusive Content From The Legend Of Zelda Series

Diablo III On Switch Has Exclusive Content From The Legend Of Zelda Series

With Diablo III on Switch having been revealed, the question of whether there's any Nintendo-specific content to get Switch fans on board with the action RPG is an obvious one. So obvious, in fact, that it's the very first thing we asked Blizzard when they showed us the game.

The PlayStation 4 version of the game took your characters into a dimension of infected monsters from The Last of Us, which obviously isn't present in the Switch version. Instead, some Legend of Zelda easter eggs are present to remind you of times cruising Hyrule.

The first and most major piece of content is Ganondorf transmogrification. You can take your armor in the game with all the stats you like and make it, and your character, look like Zelda's longtime villain. The design is based on Ganondorf's Twilight Princess design, the last time the human form of Ganondorf has been seen in a mainline Zelda title.
