Breath Of The Wild Spicy Pepper Trick Discovered Years Later

Breath of the Wild has been out for a little over four years. As one of the definitive open-world RPG experiences of the past decade, the latest chapter in the Legend of Zelda series has redefined game immersion and true sandbox autonomy. Even now, players continue to find new mechanical secrets that lie dormant in the physics system and miscellaneous activities. For instance, a bevy of wild trick shots are still being uploaded to Twitter – Guardians being launched in the air and headshot across the map with arrows or lynels taken down with incredible ease. Yesterday, another exploit was discovered. However, instead of weapons, it relies on food items, spicy peppers, to be exact.

Diablo II: Resurrected Unleashes Its Cinematic Trailer

Diablo II: Resurrected arrives later this month on September 23 on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, Switch, and PC. Today, Blizzard has unveiled the cinematic trailer for the game. Anyone around when the original Diablo II was released knows how revolutionary and impactful the original cinematics in the game were, adding a ton of powerful visuals and flavor to the trek through catacombs, deserts, and jungles.

Vicarious Visions has shown off a huge amount of Diablo II: Resurrected through various alphas, betas, and other testing phases to this point. We had a long look at one of the earliest builds and were fairly impressed. What do you think about Diablo II coming back this month? Will it hold up? Does it still stand up today with all the other ARPG offerings out there? What class are you looking forward to playing?

You Don't Need Ten Rings To Win This Custom Shang-Chi Xbox Series X

If you enjoyed Marvel Studios’ latest superhero flick Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings and have been seeking an Xbox Series X, the stars have aligned for you. Microsoft has partnered up with Marvel to release a custom Ten Rings-themed Series X that you can possibly call your own via a new sweepstakes. 

The console comes plastered with art inspired by the film and includes a custom red and black controller modeled after Shang-Chi’s battle suit. It even includes a Marvel Legends Shang-Chi action figure nestled inside of a special pouch. Unfortunately, it does not include ten rings of unfathomable power. The film’s star, actor Simu Liu, shared photos of the console that was sent to him, which I’m sure he’ll be using to play a copious amount of Halo

Got this custom Ten-Rings-inspired Series X from my friends at #Xbox !! You can’t buy it in stores but you CAN win one. Check out the @XBox Twitter for more details.
(Legends action figure included in Ten-Rings-branded pouch lollll)

LittleBigPlanet Servers Suddenly Shutdown For PlayStation 3 and Vita

LittleBigPlanet Servers Suddenly Shutdown For PlayStation 3 and Vita

Those looking to enjoy user-created levels in the various LittleBigPlanet games just lost many places to play. Following extensive maintenance in which the servers were brought offline, only LittleBigPlanet 3 functionality for Playstation 4 will continue to have service from now on. The LittleBigPlanet team announced this big change for legacy versions of the games on Twitter this morning.

“Firstly, we would like to apologize for the extended downtime of the LittleBigPlanet server and want to thank you all for your patience whilst we worked on the issue,” began the message from the team. It goes on to say the newest update, 1.27, is available for PlayStation 4 users, but then the bad news broke for anyone not playing on that platform. “Unfortunately, we need to permanently shut down our online services for: LittleBigPlanet, LittleBigPlanet 2, LittleBigPlanet 3 (PS3), and LittleBigPlanet PS Vita.” Why bring down online access for all of these games on older consoles? According to the LBP team, it’s “the best way to protect the LittleBigPlanet community and to help ensure that our online environment stays safe.”

Hayley Atwell Cast As Lara Croft In Netflix’s Tomb Raider Anime

Netflix announced it was developing an animated Tomb Raider series back in January, and now we know it will be an anime and who will be voicing Lara Croft. Hayley Atwell, whose roles include portraying Agent Peggy Carter in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, will portray the iconic explorer. 

In addition to Marvel, Atwell’s credits include 2015's Cinderella, Christopher Robin, and the upcoming Misson Impossible 7. As for the show itself, Netflix still hasn’t divulged plot details or a premiere date but confirms Lara’s next adventure takes place after the events of Crystal Dynamic’s Tomb Raider reboot trilogy, which concluded with 2018’s Shadow of the Tomb Raider. Atwell will be the third actress to portray this version of Lara following Camilla Luddington, who voiced Lara the reboot trilogy, and Alicia Vikander, who portrayed a live-action take on the modernized Lara in 2018's Tomb Raider film. 

Tomb Raider will be written and executive produced by Tasha Huo (The Witcher: Blood Origin, Red Sonja). It’s one of several video game adaptations Netflix has in the works. The company has greenlit a new Castlevania series starring Richter Belmont, a Witcher anime, and a Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon anime. There are also rumors that a live-action Pokémon series and a Dragon Age show are also in development. 

Marvel’s Wolverine Is A 'Mature', Full-Sized Game, According To Creative Director

Marvel’s Wolverine Is A 'Mature', Full-Sized Game, According To Creative Director

Insomniac Games revealed last week that it’s got another superhero game in the works, Marvel’s Wolverine. With that excitement came a lot of questions. What style of game will it be? Who’s voicing Logan? Will it be an R-rated gorefest or tonally in the ballpark of Marvel’s Spider-Man? We now have an answer to a couple of those questions.

Wolverine’s creative director, Brian Horton, took to Twitter to announce his role on the project. Horton previously directed Spider-Man: Miles Morales, which prompted a fan to ask if the Wolverine’s scope was similar in size or something bigger. Horton responded by simply stating Wolverine will be “full size, mature tone.” He doesn’t elaborate beyond that, but I’m sure some fans will breathe easier given some of the online worries that Wolverine might be a sunshine and hugs parade. Now, “Mature tone” doesn’t necessarily mean it’ll be M-rated, but we’ll have to wait and see.

Watch Hawkeye And Kate Bishop Join Forces In New Series Trailer

Watch Hawkeye And Kate Bishop Join Forces In New Series Trailer

The Disney+ Hawkeye television show launches this holiday season, and the new trailer released earlier today is all about sharing that lovely Christmas spirit with fans of the hero. The scenes on display delved into Hawkeye’s dark past, his relationship with his family, and an enthusiastic apprentice named Kate Bishop. The two heroes join forces to take down some baddies and get home in time to open presents. You can watch the trailer below.

Lila Barton, Hawkeye’s daughter, opens the trailer exclaiming that “This is the first Christmas we’ve had in years.” Her father is all too aware of this, having lived in the depths of despair following the events of Avengers: Infinity War. Thanos snapped his fingers, and Hawkeye lost everyone and everything that he held dear. The cosmic supervillain’s eventual defeat brought immense joy and celebration. However, a dark past filled with violent, regrettable actions still haunts the moody bowman even as he yearns and works to “make up for lost time.” You see, Hawkeye traveled the world as Ronin – a merciless champion of vengeance – after the universe was brought to its knees; that pain and the fallout from Ronin’s existence don’t just go away.

This Dragon Age Origins Mod Imports Isabella's Dragon Age 2 Design

This Dragon Age Origins Mod Imports Isabella's Dragon Age 2 Design

Dragon Age Origins is the first game in the iconic fantasy BioWare series, and for many, it is the most enjoyable. What was not enjoyable was Isabella's design in the first game – especially compared to the sequel. In Dragon Age 2, the fiery pirate became the very definition of a "glow up." For those who prefer the more personalized style of Dragon Age 2's Isabella, this Dragon Age Origins mod gives you what you want. 

Created by modder 'GirlStandStill' over on Nexus Mods, this Dragon Age Origins mod does exactly what it promises: it imports the model of the devil-may-care Isabella from Dragon Age 2, bringing her into the first game to replace her original, more generic-NPC look. 

Personally, I love this. Isabella is one of my favorite characters in the Dragon Age-verse. She's overcome so much to become who she is, but she still has room to grow when we meet her in Dragon Age 2. Don't we all? Romancing her is one of my most favorite memories from this series because that is when you truly see her growth and get to watch her learn to trust others again and trust her own voice. I found that great to see, and she's a beacon for many of the other companions, including Fenris, making her a treasured character.
