Power Rangers Fighting Game Battle For The Grid Starts Rolling Out Next Week

If you've got nostalgia for Power Rangers, and love fighting games in the vein of Marvel Vs. Capcom, next week has a nice little surprise for you.

Developer and publisher nWay has announced Power Rangers: Battle For The Grid will launch March 26 for Xbox One and Switch. PC and PS4 players will have to wait a little longer, as the PS4 version hits hits Europe March 28, and America on April 2. The PC is currently slated for "Summer 2019."

For those not in the know, Battle For The Grid pits Rangers from across the franchise's many series against each other, and includes a few villains in for good measure. It looks to play similarly to the Marvel Vs. Capcom series, with assist and Tag-in combos similar to Marvel Vs. Capcom: Infinite.

Destiny 2's Iron Banner Adds Power-Fluctuating Consumables

Destiny 2's Iron Banner Adds Power-Fluctuating Consumables

Bungie is letting players widen the power gap between players in Destiny 2's Iron Banner mode in some fun ways, and is also looking to rework some bounties that grant enhancement cores.

This season, Iron Banner includes the addition of two new consumables: The Iron Burden and the Wolf's Favor. The Iron Burden lops 100 power from your character when you play the mode, making it easier for your opponents to kill you and harder for you to do the same. However, if you can defeat 500 opponents while under its effects, you'll score a masterworked Wizened Rebuke with a curated roll. You can grab an Iron Burden from Saladin if you're up for the challenge.

Conversely, the Wolf's Favor increases your power by 100, which makes it a great option for players who just want to hop into the mode but aren't as hardcore about it. Wolf's Favors drop when you complete PvE challenges throughout the game, including daily heroic missions, strikes, flashpoints, gamit, and Ikora/Hawthorne's weekly milestones.

Atlus Drops Teaser Trailer For Persona 5: The Royal

Atlus Drops Teaser Trailer For Persona 5: The Royal

Atlus has been teasing something called "Persona 5 R" for some time, but their latest teaser trailer gives us a bit more info the title.

Now titled Persona 5: The Royal, it's not clear whether this is a sequel, expansion, or updated version of Persona 5, but I'd lean toward the latter. The Royal takes place in the same locale as Persona 5 and introduces a new red-headed character, who doesn't seem to be into the methods of the Phantom Thieves (according to a translation from Gematsu) and would rather solve her problems on her own. Whether they'll be an ally, foe, or (in a longshot guess here) a new playable character remains to be seen.

It isn't a ton of info to go on, but don't worry; Atlus also announced we'd be getting more info on April 24, the date of the "Persona Super Live" concert in Japan.

Report: Apple Considering Monthly Gaming Subscription Service

Report: Apple Considering Monthly Gaming Subscription Service

While Google is making waves in the gaming market with its Stadia streaming service, another tech giant is also looking how it can expand within the space: Apple.

Bloomberg reports the company, who is looking for new ways to capitalize on its enormous install base as its hardware sales begin to slow down, may reveal new subscription services to keep users spending after they've invested in their Apple hardware, and this could include a gaming subscription service.

The service would be less Stadia and more Xbox Games Pass. It would take several paid games (so no free-to-play games like Fortnite) on its iPhone and iPad app stores and bundle them together every month for a flat fee, letting users slowly build a library of games they don't own. The service would pay out to developers based on the amount of time players spend with their games.

Weekend Warrior – The Way Of The Ninja

Weekend Warrior – The Way Of The Ninja

Last weekend was all about shootin' and lootin' in The Division 2. And while that game will still be gracing our television screens, we now have From Software's Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice to sink our teeth into. For those of you who will also be roaming the frustratingly difficult landscapes of Sengoku Japan, we wish you the best of luck. Trust us: you're gonna need it.

Brian Shea (@BrianPShea) – I’m going to attempt to play Sekiro this weekend, but chances are I won’t last long and will want to go do something relaxing. Overwatch and Marvel Strike Force are always my go-tos, but I may fire up something like Anthem. 

Kyle Hilliard (@KyleMHilliard) – Sekiro has made a strong first impression, so I plan on still going strong on that. I am also still dabbling with Crackdown 3 and Kingdom Hearts 3. Otherwise I need to watch the new episodes of Arrested Development and I have been making my way through One Piece. I might grill something, too. It’s still cold in Minnesota, but waaaaay less cold than it has been. It might be time.
