SNK Announces Samurai Shodown NeoGeo Collection

Although SNK is currently working a new Samurai Shodown game, it isn't reticent to dive back into the series' back catalog, and has announced a large majority of the series will be coming to modern consoles in a new anthology.

Samurai Shodown NeoGeo Collection collects the series' six most notable installments from the arcade era: Samurai Shodowns I-V, as well as the major update to V titled V Special. This excludes a handful of other releases that weren't released on the NeoGeo, including Samurai Shodown RPG, two Neo Geo 64 games, and 2008's Samurai Shodown Sen, which was only released in arcades and Xbox 360.

The project is being developed with Digital Eclipse, who also worked on the Street Fighter 30th and the SNK 40th Anniversary Collections. The NeoGeo Collection will also include online play for each title, as well as arcade and museum modes, and is slated to hit on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC (via Steam) this fall.

Original Version Of Assassin's Creed III De-Listed From Steam, Uplay

Original Version Of Assassin's Creed III De-Listed From Steam, Uplay

With the recent release of the Assassin Creed III remaster, Ubisoft may not want people buying the original version of the game, and it looks like that un-remastered version has been removed from both Steam and Uplay, with some odd exceptions.

Currently, the Steam page for the game lists a notice: "At the request of the publisher, Assassin’s Creed III is no longer available for sale on Steam." Only the remaster is available, for $39.99 (the original was selling for $19.99 as of earlier this week and had recently been on sale for $4.99, according to stat-tracking site SteamDB).

Those who already own the game on Steam are reporting being able to re-download the game. However, those who own a Uplay copy may be out of luck; the game isn't listed on Ubisoft's client at all. And anecdotally speaking, I attempted to download the Uplay copy I owned, only to be redirected to the Steam page, and since I don't own the Steam version, I can no longer download my version of the game. However, it looks like the game is still available for purchase on Ubisoft's web store (I wouldn't necessarily recommend buying it at this point, however, considering the issue I personally have downloading my Uplay copy).

Destiny 2's Nightfalls To Get More Varied, Drop Rates For Dreaming City Cosmetics Increasing Soon

Destiny 2's Nightfalls To Get More Varied, Drop Rates For Dreaming City Cosmetics Increasing Soon

Bungie will soon be making it easier to get some of the more sought-after rewards required to complete Destiny 2's Triumph seals.

In their latest blog post, the developer announced they would be making certain seals easier to get in two ways. First, they are making changes to how the weekly nightfall strike activity rotates. Every week, three nightfall strikes rotate in for the week. However, many nightfalls would be on the docket for multiple weeks in a row, while others wouldn't show up for weeks. Bungie says that "moving forward," they'll be looking to address the issue, so that the seals associated with specific nightfall strikes would be easier to get.

Second, the drop rates for the ghost, ship, and sparrow cosmetics for the Dreaming City and Last Wish raid will be getting "doubled, tripled, or more for their respective activities," once the game's April 9 update hits. This should make it easier to nab the Dreaming City triumph seal, since one of the requirements is getting some of those items. One Thousand Voices, the exotic fusion rifle that drops from Last Wish will continue to be hard to get, but will have its drop rate increased slightly.

Sega Announces Multiple Games For The 2020 Tokyo Olympics

Sega Announces Multiple Games For The 2020 Tokyo Olympics

Sega has announced four separate games to coincide with the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo, though three of them are versions of the one we already know: Mario and Sonic at the Olympic Games.

In a trailer mixes footage of the four games with a quasi-inspirational montage of old Olympic footage, we see the four games in action. First, there's Olympic Games Tokyo 2020 - The Official Video Game, which looks to be a more traditional collection of games based on Olympic sports. This one has regular people compete in the games instead of iconic, disproportionate mascots. This one is coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC sometime in 2020.

From there, things get a bit funky. There's of course a new version of Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games coming this winter, but this one is Switch exclusive. If you don't own a Swtich, you can still get your fix this summer by going to an arcade to play Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games: Arcade Edition, which will probably not have Yun or Yang in it. Finally, we have the iOS version of the game, which will exclude half of series' namesake and simply be titled Sonic at the Olympic Games. That one is also out this summer.

What To Watch This Weekend - PAX East, League of Legends, And Street Fighter V

This weekend brings us another PAX, more League of Legends, and some pretty neat events in Asia.

The Northern California Regionals are a major event in many fighting game communities, so you can catch hotly contested events for Street Fighter V, Tekken 7, Dragon Ball FighterZ, Windjammers, and more. (Streams and Schedule)

The League of Legends LCS is getting serious, as we move out of the best-of-one group stage and move into the best-of-five playoffs. This means there are only two matches this weekend (one today and one tomorrow), but the stakes are higher. (Stream / Schedule)
