Breath Of The Wild Glitch Shows Detailed Look Underwater

Whether or not Breath of the Wild is one of the best games of all time is up to some debate, but whether it is one of the most detailed games of all time really shouldn't be. In case there were argument about it, though, some new evidence comes in the form of a glitch of all things. One player found a way to remove the water from a small pond from their view and take a look at how the game looks under the not-sea.

The player bonks their head against the pier and activates their scope, making the game think they're looking above water. While Breath of the Wild lets you swim, it doesn't let you dive or really see beneath the water's surface beyond large objects for you to magnetize out. This video gives a good look at how the world looks beneath the water.

Weekend Warrior – Mario Making The Most Of A Weekend

about X hours ago from

Another week has come and gone of covering content, which means it's time to take a break and consume more content! From Final Fantasy to Mario Maker, we're playing a wide range of titles with alliteration – if we're not watching them be broken by the amazing runners at Games Done Quick!

Brian Shea (@brianpshea) – I’m playing Mario Maker 2 all weekend to try and recapture my creative streak. When I’m not doing that, I’ll be digging into Tropico 6, which I just bought on Steam sale, and Dying Light, which I’ve been replaying since E3.

Imran Khan (@imranzomg) – This weekend, I am still watching Summer Games Done Quick! I am also putting more time into Judgment, the excellent and kind of weirdly quiet spinoff of the Yakuza series. Plus, Mario Maker 2 is out! I’ve put a bit into story mode so far, which is fun and honestly a little infuriating. I definitely am not lacking for options, but I am lacking for time. It’s technically not the weekend, but I am going to see Spider-Man next week and am excited for that.

Game Freak Responds On Backlash Over Missing Pokémon In Sword & Shield

about X hours ago from

At E3 this year, Game Freak director and overall Pokémon spokesman Junichi Masuda announced during a Treehouse Live segment that not all Pokémon would be coming to the upcoming Sword & Shield titles. This meant, for the first time, that Pokémon from previous generations won't all be in a new generation, so old Pokémon players have been keeping can't be transferred as they actually aren't programmed into it.

After an intense backlash over this from series fans who had been carrying Pokémon with them through trading, Pal Park, and cloud-based services over the years, Game Freak has responded for the first time since announcing it. The post, written by Masuda, acknowledges the fervor but stops short of saying they will do anything about it.

"Just like all of you, we are passionate about Pokémon and each and every one of them is very important to us," Masuda writes. "After so many years of developing the Pokémon video games, this was a very difficult decision for me. I'd like to make one thing clear: even if a specific Pokémon is not available in Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield, that does not mean it will not appear in future games."

Crackdown 3 Gets A New Update With A Wingsuit

When Crackdown 3 came out earlier this year, people were a little conflicted about the game for different reasons. Some felt that there just wasn't enough variety in the gameplay minute-to-minute and it looks like the developers have heard that feedback. While there's no huge overhaul to the game or anything like that, those that enjoy or were on the cusp of enjoying Crackdown 3 might just be thrilled by the new Flying High update.

You can check out the trailer for it below.

The update includes the aforementioned wingsuit, ring challenges for the new suit-vehicle, a flare for airstrikes, a new mass-explosion grenade, and more. All this comes with sixteen new achievements for those that S-ranked the game and want a reason to play more.

A Lego Spider-Man Minifig Based On The PS4 Game Will Be Available Exclusively At SDCC

In the run up to San Diego Comic-Con, toymakers of all stripes introduce new statues and figures and collaborative products to sell exclusively at the convention. It ends up getting the brand talked about and brings people to the booth to maybe buy more than just an exclusive item. Some try to up the ante, as is the case with this exclusive Spider-Man minifig based on Insomniac's PS4 game. To get this bad boy, you're going to need luck.

The minifig will be available exclusively to SDCC attendees, but only through random draw on July 18. So you have to attend the San Diego Comic-Con, draw your number, and hope you win, but at least it's instant-win so you will know very fast whether or not your day has gotten a lot better.

San Diego Comic-Con runs from July 18 through July 21.

Bloodstained Bug Prevents Progress, Players May Need To Restart

Bloodstained Bug Prevents Progress, Players May Need To Restart

With the new release of Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night, fans have been eager to delve deep into the new Metroidvania made by former Castlevania producer Koji Igarashi. Unfortunately for some of those fans, however, a nasty glitch may have turned their playthrough into a nightmare scenario, though a recent patch hopefully fixes it for new players.

The bug goes like this: as you journey through the game, you occasionally come across treasure chests. These chests sometimes include items you might need for progression, as you do in a Metroidvania game. If you have been affected by the bug, some of these chests will be open already and their items inaccessible, preventing you from making progress. If you have been hit with this bug already, there's nothing you can do, your save file is already forfeit.

"We investigated a number of options to address this issue and each fix requires a new game to be started. Despite our efforts to provide a fix that preserves pre-1.02 progress, this is the best solution to avoid future issues," publisher 505 Games said in a statement. "Xbox One players will also be affected by this when the 1.02 patch is delivered next week. Switch players who have a physical copy should download the 1.02 patch before playing."

Here's What The Witcher 3 Looks Like On The Switch

Announced at E3 2019, the hit role-playing game The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt will be coming to Nintendo Switch sometime this year. The port of the game's Complete Edition, which includes all downloadable content and expansions, should keep Nintendo fans busy for a long time to come. 

With the Switch offering significantly less powerful hardware than its console competitors, many wonder how the game will look on the smaller screen. A new batch of screenshots gives us an idea of what to expect, and you can check it out for yourself in the gallery below.

EA Tries To Rename Lootboxes Under Government Scrutiny

EA Tries To Rename Lootboxes Under Government Scrutiny

As more and more governments are taking a closer look at lootboxes and whether they are a predatory practice akin to gambling, EA has found itself on the defensive. Its newest tactic: Call them something else and declare that gamers love them, actually.

While testifying in front of the United Kingdom’s Digital, Culture, Media and Sport Committee on immersive and addictive technologies, EA’s vice president of legal Kerry Hopkins offered up a novel defense of the microtransaction-driven lootboxes and card packs that many of its games contain. “Well first, we don’t call them lootboxes, we look at them as surprise mechanics,” Hopkins asserted. “If you go to…a store that sells a lot of toys, and you do a search for surprise toys, what you’ll find is that this is something people enjoy, they enjoy surprises.”

Hopkins goes on to compare its “surprise mechanics” to toys like Hatchimals and LOL Surprise, before stating that EA does believe their approach “...is actually quite ethical and quite fun, [and] enjoyable to people.”

Avengers: Endgame Is Coming Back To Theaters, With 'New Surprises' After The Credits

Avengers: Endgame Is Coming Back To Theaters, With 'New Surprises' After The Credits

Avengers: Endgame had over three hours of character payoff, high-energy battles, and the conclusion of a 22-film narrative arc. But some people were still disappointed that the movie didn't have Marvel's signature post-credits scene, subtly referencing the first Iron Man with a brief audio cue at the very end.

Now, however, the Russo brothers are inserting a new post-credits scene into the film. While we don't know all the details, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige confirmed in an interview with Screen Rant that there will be "a deleted scene, a little tribute, and a few surprises."

If we had to guess, that tribute will likely be to the legendary Marvel Comics chief Stan Lee, who passed away last year. Because what audiences need more in Avengers: Endgame is more crying. As to what the deleted scene and surprises are, we'll just have to find out.
