Bungie Update Announces Free Destiny Comic And The Dawning Event Timing

This Week At Bungie, Bungie's blog post that announces and reviews news for Destiny 2, showed off a new comic and detailed The Dawning festivities.

The comic, called Fall of Osiris, tells the story of how the vanguard hero went from lauded commander to traitor. It is written by Ryan North, the writer behind Dinosaur Comics and The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl, in concert with Bungie's narrative team. The comic is coming soon and will be available for free on Bungie's website.

The Dawning decorates the Farm and the Tower with a winter wonderland feel. The festive atmosphere gives the opportunity for snowball fights, either with playful pelts on the farm or in strikes where snowballs deal extra damage. In addition, Mayhem is back in Crucible, reducing cooldown times for abilities. You can check out the full details of The Dawning here.

Injustice 2 Free Trial Now Available On PlayStation 4 And Xbox One

Injustice 2 has a free weekend going on from December 14 to December 18 on both PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

The free trial lets you play through the first three chapters of game's much-lauded story mode, as well as using the game's main roster in all of the multiplayer modes. Multiplayer, as does the free trial as a whole, does require players have PlayStation Plus or Xbox Live Gold, however.

All the progress made, including unlocks, story mode progression, and crates received, will carry over to the full game as long as it's played on the same account as the free trial. If you already own the game, you can log in during the free weekend period and gain 2000 source crystals. 

The FCC Votes To Repeal Net Neutrality

The FCC Votes To Repeal Net Neutrality

The Federal Communications Commission has voted 3-2 in favor of repealing net neutrality rules put in place two years ago. The rules in question prevent internet service providers from blocking, throttling, or prioritizing certain content, or requiring consumers or companies to pay a premium to have access to a "fast lane." The vote also removes Title II designation from the internet, which removes its classification as a "public utility."

The next step in the FCC's battle to repeal the net neutrality rules is likely to happen in court. If ultimately adopted, the changes won't take place overnight, but once the rules are removed, internet service providers will be free to experiment with new fees and new ways to bundle content on the internet. The changes could have sweeping implications for gamers, who have become substantially more reliant on the internet with the explosion of online gaming over the past 15 years, as well as ever-increasing download sizes. These changes could also drastically affect streaming services such as Hulu, Netflix, and Amazon Instant Video, among many other services.

Switch Accessory Makes Controller Look Like A Puppy

After the Switch's reveal, fans on the internet realized that the joycons attached together in their shell looked a lot like an off-center dog face. Now an accessory is coming out to complete the illusion.

Hyperkin, known for Retron consoles and smaller, portable versions of consoles, is releasing something called the "Pupper" controller grip. It grip angles the joycons in slightly, pushing the grips out to better resemble ears, and make the lights look more like pupper eyes. Oh, and of course, puppy mouth stickers.

The Hyperkin Pupper controller also charges the joycons, something the standard grip does not do. It also takes the USB-C connection for faster charging as another method for charging your joycons.
