Nintendo Switch Eshop Adds A Ton Of Games This Week

about X hours ago from

Between the launch of the Nintendo Switch Online service and a new sale in the Eshop, it's been a busy week for Nintendo's hybrid console. That applies to its newest batch of game releases as well. Nearly 30 titles have been released for Switch this week, from retro classics to some indie gems and the big DLC expansion for Xenoblade Chronicles 2. Here are some of the highlights.

On the indie side, this week saw the Switch release of the quirky, beloved RPG Undertale. The well-received roguelike platformer Risk of Rain is now available in the Switch Eshop as well, as is Reigns: Kings & Queens, a compilation of the Tinder-like RPGs Reigns and Reigns: Her Majesty, in which you swipe left or right to make decisions on how you'll rule. The fast-paced sci-fi shoot-'em-up Velocity 2X also made its Switch debut, and early adopters can pick it up on sale for a limited time.

In addition to those titles, a bunch of retro games arrived on Switch this week, including the Capcom Beat 'em Up Bundle, a compilation of several of the developer's classic arcade beat-'em-ups. Sega also released the first two entries in its Sega Ages line, Sonic the Hedgehog and Lightening Force: Quest for the Darkstar. Rounding out the retro releases is a new pair of Arcade Archives games: the Neo Geo beat-'em-up Cyber-Lip, and the rare arcade version of Excitebike.

The 13 Best It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia Episodes

FX's It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia just entered its 13th season, and over the years, the gang has done some incredible and despicable things. From exploiting the gas crisis, to getting drunk on planes, to putting on a rock opera that's just a marriage proposal ploy, the show contains some hilarious and truly memorable episodes.

The show follows the owners--and employee--of Paddy's Pub in Philadelphia: Ronald "Mac" McDonald, Dee Reynolds, Dennis Reynolds, Frank Reynolds, and Charlie Kelly. Together, this group of friends is toxic and ruins the lives of everyone around them through malicious schemes and plots to try and make themselves seem like better people.

In honor of the show's 13th season, the folks at GameSpot came together to debate which episodes are the best. Obviously, this is no easy task because so many of these episodes are amazing.

After plenty of debate, looking at every scheme, every violent encounter, and every hilarious moment, we figured out the best 13 episodes from the series. Let us know what your favorite episodes are in the comment section below.

It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia currently airs Wednesdays at 10 PM on FXX.

Pokemon Go: September Community Day Is Today, Here Are All The Details

about X hours ago from

The next Pokemon Go Community Day is here. This month's event takes place today, September 22, and as usual, it'll give players a chance to capture rare Pokemon and take advantage of other in-game rewards for a brief window of time.

Live previous Community Days, this month's event will be held around the globe, but it will only run for three hours, and its timing will vary depending on which part of the world you live in. You can find the full schedule for each major region, as taken from the official Pokemon website, below.

Every Community Day stars a special "featured Pokemon" that will spawn much more frequently in the wild than it typically does for the duration of the event. This month, the featured Pokemon is the Gold and Silver starter Chikorita. On top of appearing in greater numbers than usual, you'll also have your first chance of encountering a Shiny Chikorita during the event.

Devil May Cry 5 Lets You Spend Real Money To Upgrade Characters

about X hours ago from

We recently had the opportunity to play Devil May Cry 5 at TGS. The demo shown behind closed doors featured Dante, the original star of the series who is now considered a secondary character to Nero in the new sequel. During our demo we encountered the Divinity Statue, which acts as a shop where you can trade in orbs collected during combat and exploration, and in that menu we discovered that players will have the option to spend real money to accrue more orbs if they wish to expedite the upgrade process and beef up Dante earlier than usual.

Speaking to Hideaki Itsuno, director on the game from Capcom, we asked why this system is necessary in a game like Devil May Cry 5, and the reason given was a familiar one: it's about giving players options to play the game as they wish. "With giving people the ability to purchase Red Orbs, it’s something we want to give people as an option. If they want to save time and just want to get all the stuff at once, those people can do that. But on the other hand I don’t feel you have to get all the moves, " said Itsuno. "You should be able to play it the way you want to play it."

It was a bit surprising to discover that such a feature exists in Devil May Cry 5, but it's not the first game in the series to feature them--they were also a part of Devil May Cry 4 Special Edition.

Devil May Cry 5 Has Our Attention, But We Aren't Without Concerns

about X hours ago from

With both Resident Evil 2 Remake and Devil May Cry 5 at TGS, Capcom had a lot to share with fans and press alike. During our behind-closed-doors time we had the chance to play as Nero and experiment with his arm-swapping Devil Breaker ability--which grants him access to a range of attacks based on items collected within stages--as well as fan-favorite Dante.

In the video above we outline everything we enjoyed about the demo, and discussed a few elements that caught us off-guard. In particular, we were surprised to discover microtransactions within the game. They are used in a similar manner as Devil May Cry 4 Special Edition, where orbs used to upgrade abilities can be purchased with real world money.

By and large, however, the same attitude and style that defines Capcom's Devil May Cry games is present and accounted for. There's still an additional character, V, that we've yet to play, and Capcom promises that he'll play quite differently from the other two characters. We know he uses a cane to get around and thus, relative to Dante and Nero, is potentially lacking physicality, but anything is possible in the over-the-top world of Devil May Cry.
