Monster Hunter Celebrates 15th Anniversary, Possibly Teases Something New

about X hours ago from

While 2018's Monster Hunter World served as many players' introduction to the action RPG series, the franchise is one of Capcom's oldest, originally debuting during the PlayStation 2 era. This year marks the series' 15th anniversary, and the publisher is commemorating the occasion with a special trailer.

The video, which you can watch below, takes a look back on all of the mainline installments in the series to date, beginning with 2004's Monster Hunter. Since then, the franchise has appeared on numerous handheld and home consoles, including the PSP, Wii, and 3DS, most recently making its home on PS4, Xbox One, and PC with Monster Hunter World.

The video ends with another teaser for Iceborne, this year's major Monster Hunter World expansion. Capcom hasn't revealed any new details about the DLC, but it has previously said it will introduce new locales, monsters, gear, quests, and other content.

You Can Fire Apex Legends' Hemlock Fully Auto On PC

about X hours ago from

Apparently, with certain button-mapping and equipment on PC, you can transform many of the burst-fire or single-shot weapons in Apex Legends into auto-fire. Which, if done while wielding the Hemlock, can allow you to deal out a ton of damage very quickly.

The Hemlock is a burst-fire assault rifle that uses heavy ammo and is ideal for mid-range combat. Because of its slower fire-rate, it can't hold up at close-range in comparison to several other weapons. However, according to Reddit user mnkymnk, you can kind of transform the firearm into a fully automatic rifle while using a mouse and keyboard on PC--making it ideal for close-range combat. Mapping both left mouse click and mouse wheel up to attack, and then quickly alternating between the two while the Hemlock is in single-shot mode will cause the gun to shoot fast enough that it seems to be going full auto.

This strategy could be applied to pretty much any weapon that has a single-shot firing mode. However, the Hemlock is one of the few that both deals enough damage and has a fast enough single-shot rate to make the strategy worth it. In terms of rapid fire weapons at close-range, we still recommend both the R-301 Carbine and EVA-8. Apex Legends' new Havoc is pretty good as well, and if you're looking for more weapon recommendations for handling enemy squads at all ranges, check out our guide.

Red Dead 2 Online: How The New Clothing Catalogue Works

about X hours ago from

Red Dead Redemption 2 has gotten updated once again with new additions to the ongoing Red Dead Online multiplayer mode. This week it added a new item catalogue, which will roll out new items on a regular basis and rotate them in and out of stock.

The Wheeler, Rawson & Co Catalogue is a new way to purchase cosmetics. Some items will be marked Coming Soon before they're released, and then when they become available they'll be marked as Limited Stock. That will be your notice that they're only available for a limited time. Once those items go out of rotation, they'll be listed as Out of Stock, but don't worry. Items will come back into stock from time to time. Rockstar also committed to improving the catalogue organization itself as time goes on.

To kick off the new cosmetics, the catalogue has debuted with several pieces of rare clothing, listed below.

Destiny 2 Thorn Quest: Here's How To Find The Start (Spoilers!)

Destiny 2 Thorn Quest: Here's How To Find The Start (Spoilers!)

Destiny 2's latest reset has brought two big new quest lines: the allegiance quest, which has players choosing between the Drifter and the Vanguard to advance the story, and the quest to retrieve Thorn, an Exotic hand cannon of Destiny 1 legend. Here's how you can get started on obtaining Thorn for yourself.

There's a ton of story surrounding Thorn, as well as The Last Word, and the two men who wielded those guns. They're both related to the Drifter and his story, which is central to Joker's Wild, the latest content expansion with Destiny 2's Annual Pass. We know the quest is in the game, but up until now, the start of it wasn't especially clear. Our speculation right now is that finishing the allegiance quest line leads to the start of Thorn--but thanks to the smart (or quick) Redditor arcxschxll, you can find the start of the quest immediately. Hopefully it doesn't break the quest line.

Warning: Probable spoilers beyond, so read on (and start the quest) at your own risk.

World Of Warcraft Classic Post-Launch Content Drops Has Been Outlined

about X hours ago from

Blizzard has outlined post-launch plans for World of Warcraft Classic, which includes regular content drops. New content will come to the MMORPG over the course of six phases.

"Our focus is still primarily on player power-progression, but we're also aiming to capture what it felt like to play in a realm community in original WoW," Blizzard community manager Randy Jordan wrote in a forum post. "To do that, we're planning to mirror the approach taken by original WoW, with patches paired together. We'll launch Classic with content from original WoW through patch 1.2.x, then the second update will include content that was in original WoW 1.3 and 1.4, the third Classic update will have 1.5 and 1.6 content, and so on."

Blizzard hasn't announced an exact launch date for phases two through six. Also, PvP content is currently not listed in any of the phases, as Blizzard is "still evaluating" all of the options for how PvP rewards might work. For now, phase one--which is the launch of WoW Classic alongside its Molten Core, Onyxia, and Maraudon updates--is scheduled for Summer 2019. The list of all six phases and what's included in each are outlined below.

WWE: What Matters From Raw: Kurt Angle Retiring, Shield Breaking Up--Or Are They?

about X hours ago from

If you're an avid fan of WWE programming, then you know there is eight hours of week of wrestling to watch between Raw, Smackdown, 205 Live, NXT, and NXT UK. That's a lot of in-ring action. Sometimes, you don't have time to watch a full episode, and that's why we're summing up the biggest points from WWE's biggest shows.

The three-hour long Raw is filled with numerous superstars and storylines, and many of these stories are leading towards Wrestlemania, WWE's biggest PPV of the year. Here are the biggest moments from the March 11 episode of Raw, all of which will lead into the show of shows this April.

Dean Ambrose is supposedly not resigning with WWE, but with how much of a big deal commentators and Roman Reigns made about this, it feels like a work. Reigns made an announcement to kick off Raw that was essentially telling everyone that the Shield is going their own way now.
