Destiny 2: Where Is Xur? Location And Exotic Weapons Guide (March 1-5)

The next reset marks the start of Destiny 2's sixth season, the Season of the Drifter. That makes this weekend's return of Xur, Emissary of the Nine, the last time you'll buy Year One Exotics from Xur before the reset, and a great chance to get something shiny to hold yourself over before the Destiny 2 grind kicks up again with the next part of its Annual Pass.

Head to Nessus this weekend to find Xur, who is hanging out in the Watcher's Grave area. From the transmat zone where you load into the area, head north and look up--Xur is waiting on one of the giant tree branches and you'll need to climb to reach him.

The gun Xur has on offer this week is The Colony, a powerful grenade launcher that often sees a lot of use in the Crucible. Instead of regular grenades, it fires tiny robot insects that crawl along the ground in the direction you fire, homing in on enemies and blowing them up. The Colony is great for competitive play thanks to its grenades' ability to find their targets.

Here Are Two Free Steam Games To Play This Weekend

This weekend's free Steam deals include two space-inspired adventures. The first is Space Engineers, an open-world game where you explore the galaxy and build spaceships, outposts, space stations, and more, all while gathering resources to survive. The game left Steam Early Access yesterday after more than five years, and not only is it 20% off on Steam, you can play it for free this weekend.

Space Engineers combines engineering and construction gameplay with themes of survival and exploration. The developers created a "realistic, volumetric-based physics engine," which basically means this game is similar to Minecraft in that everything you see can be used, altered, or destroyed.

"Space Engineers is inspired by reality and by how things work," the developers shared on the game's official website. "Think about modern-day NASA technology extrapolated 60 years into the future. Space Engineers strives to follow the laws of physics and doesn't use technologies that wouldn't be feasible in the near future."

Free Switch Updates Bringing More Mario Tennis Aces Characters, And One Is Out Now

Nintendo is releasing a new set of playable characters for Mario Tennis Aces. Beginning today, March 1, the mayor of New Donk City, Pauline, is making her debut in the Switch tennis games, while two classic Mario villains will join the roster in the next couple of months.

As with Aces' previous DLC characters, players can unlock Pauline by playing at least one match in the game's Online Tournament mode this month, while everyone else will automatically get her after April 1. As you can see in the trailer above, Pauline is a speedy character, and her Special Shot has her delivering a powerful smash from atop New Donk City Hall.

Pauline arrives alongside Aces' 2.3.0 update, which also kicks off a new Co-op Challenge called Shy Guy Train Tussle. Following Pauline, two more classic Mario enemies will be added to the game's roster: Magikoopa and Dry Bones. The former will be available in April, while the latter is set to arrive in May.

about X hours ago from

The Walking Dead might not be the immense ratings hit it once was, but it's still popular enough for AMC to be developing further spin-offs and movies alongside the main series. Last year, it was announced that a series of Walking Dead movies were in the works, and now it has been confirmed that a new spin-off show is being developed.

As reported by to Deadline, AMC revealed the news via its quarterly earnings call. While AMC CEO Josh Sapan didn't provide any specific details about the new show, he did state that a new Walking Dead spin-off was in "active development."

"We're not at a stage where we'll be announcing its plans to premiere," he said "But we have hired creative people that have pitched story outlines. We feel very good about the development of that series."

Dead Or Alive 6 Review Roundup

about X hours ago from

Dead or Alive 6's release date has finally arrived, and the fighting game is available now for PS4, Xbox One, and PC. All the talk in the lead up to launch was about how developer Team Ninja was toning down the series' traditional oversexualized look to help ease newcomers in to the franchise. But has Team Ninja followed up on that claim and, crucially, is the game any good?

GameSpot's Dead or Alive 6 review-in-progress says it's a mixed bag but ultimately a good choice for those looking to get into fighting games. To help you get a wider view of critical opinion, we've roundup up a bunch of reviews for you below. You can also check out GameSpot sister site Metacritic for the full picture on Dead or Alive 6's critical reception.

"DoA6 is a fun, engaging fighter with great-feeling, easy-to-pick-up combat, a strong sense of visual style, and a lot of personality. If you're looking for a new fighting game to learn the ins and outs of--or perhaps a nice entry into the 3D side of fighting games--DoA6 is a fighter of choice." -- Heidi Kemps [Full review]

Dead Or Alive 6 Review In Progress - Battle Ready

Dead Or Alive 6 Review In Progress - Battle Ready

In the cutthroat world of fighting games, Dead or Alive has consistently proven that it's a solid contender. From its arcade debut in 1996, the series has made a name for itself with striking visuals, fun and memorable characters, and engaging fighting action, carrying the series along through some of the genre's darkest days. Now, Dead or Alive finds itself in one of the most crowded markets the genre has ever seen. Dead or Alive 6 still has the chops to stand out after all this time--though it does slightly stumble along the way.

When you first boot up Dead or Alive 6, you're greeted by a close-up of one of the game's many characters, staring you straight in the face as you navigate through the initial set of menus. It's an early glimpse at DoA6's graphical prowess, as you get to see one of the cast members before they step into the ring and turn into a bruised and battered brawler. The way the fighters themselves sustain visual damage during a fight is quite impressive. There's dirt, torn clothing, and flying sweat--even some of the heavier hits leave a little bit of blood, transforming every match into a fierce brawl. Thankfully, if you find these effects distasteful or distracting, there's also the option to turn them off. Combined with the flashy character costumes and colorful, elaborate arenas, DoA6 is a game with a distinct visual flair.

Hellboy Reboot’s Red Band Trailer Delivers Gory Apocalyptic Mayhem

about X hours ago from

The second trailer for Hellboy is here. The movie is a reboot of Guillermo Del Toro's action fantasy series, based on Mike Mignola's comic books. Stranger Things star David Harbour plays the titular demonic hero, and the movie hits theaters in April.

December's first trailer suggested that the film would be more comedic than many fans were expecting, but this new Red Band promo delivers the dark, violent goods. It's packed with gore, bad language, and apocalyptic action, and also reveals Milla Jovovich's evil Blood Queen for the first time. Which isn't to say it's not funny too--this Hellboy is still a wise-cracking badass. Check it out above.

Hellboy releases on April 12, 2019. It also stars Ian McShane as Professor Broom, Sasha Lane as Alice Monaghan, and Daniel Dae Kim as Ben Daimo. Marshall is best known for his work on Game of Thrones and the recent Netflix show Lost in Space, plus movies like Doomsday and The Descent.

Pokemon Sword And Shield Were Teased Last Year And Nobody Noticed

about X hours ago from

Pokemon Sword and Shield were revealed this week as the next Pokemon games for Nintendo Switch. However, it seems the games were teased in 2018--just nobody noticed at the time.

Pokemon director Junichi Masuda tweeted an image of himself back in October holding everyday objects posing as a sword and shield. Of course, it was unlikely anyone could have figured out at the time he was referring to the new Pokemon games, but it's still amusing to look back on this now-obvious clue.
