Layoffs Hit Dying Light 2 Studio But The Game Is Not Affected

about X hours ago from

Techland, the Polish developer behind Dying Light and Call of Juarez franchises, recently announced a round of layoffs, but the studio's ongoing game projects are unaffected.

The job losses came as part of Techland's decision to close its Polish distribution and publishing department. Techland was in the business of publishing some third-party boxed games in Poland specifically, but that is coming to an end by the end of 2019.

Everyone affected by the layoffs is receiving a severance package that Techland says is "above the [video game] industry and the Polish employment legislation standards." Affected employees will receive help finding new jobs, Techland said, adding that employees affected by the restructuring were made aware of the move for a period of time before it became official.

Pokemon Go Adds New Legendary, Dialga, Tomorrow

about X hours ago from

Palkia may no longer be available in Pokemon Go, but a new Legendary Pokemon is set to take its place soon. Starting March 1, the Pokemon Diamond mascot Dialga will begin appearing in Raid Battles around the world--but as usual, it'll only be around for a limited time.

As with most other Legendaries, to catch Dialga you'll first need to team up with other players at a Gym where a Dialga Raid is taking place and battle the Pokemon. If you manage to defeat Dialga, each player who participated in the Raid will receive a handful of Premier Balls and an opportunity to catch it.

Dialga is the only Steel/Dragon Pokemon in the series, which gives it numerous resistances to other types. Your best bet for battling it is to bring along Fighting and Ground Pokemon such as Machamp, Hariyama, and Groudon. Dialga will only appear in Raid Battles until March 28, giving you until the end of the month to catch one.

Devotion Review - House Of Horrors

The most effective horror can seep its way into the mundanity of our everyday lives, ruminating beneath the surface before wrapping its malevolent tendrils around our sense of comfort and familiarity. Years after it was removed from sale, the bite-sized slice of P.T. we were privy to still manages to evoke those trembling feelings of unease more potently than almost any other horror game since--making each trip around that unremarkable L-shaped corridor an intimidating test of nerves. Devotion, a new psychological horror game from Taiwanese developer Red Candle Games, evokes P.T.'s terrifying spirit to paint an inventive, thought-provoking, and insidious portrait of family life within the claustrophobic confines of a small Taiwanese apartment.

The 22 Absolute Worst Funko Pops You Should Definitely Never Buy


Everything has a Funko Pop toy! Okay, not everything. There's actually some seriously glaring film omissions we're not okay with. That said, far too many things have a Pop Funko toy and, while a lot of them are really cool collectibles, some of them are just plain bad.

Whether it's a poor design choice, super creepy eyes, or simply a Pop that makes you wonder who decides which franchise get immortalized in vinyl, not everything Funko does is a home run. Still, there's some fun to be had with the worst Funko has to offer. At least, I hope there is. Otherwise, why did I spend my time tracking down what I consider to be the 22 worst Funko Pops toys ever released?

Take a look at the bad, the worse, and the ugly to see just what kinds of choices Funko makes sometimes. After all, for every Chris Jericho holding the List of Jericho, there's a dead-eyed Goofy from the Disney collection. Sound off in the comments with your favorite bad Pops, and let's all enjoy the ridiculousness.

MLB The Show 19 Full Cover Revealed After Bryce Harper Signs $330 Million Contract

about X hours ago from

In one of the biggest contracts in sports history, slugger Bryce Harper today signed a 13-year, $330 million contract with the MLB's Philadelphia Phillies. Harper was previously announced as the cover star of Sony's MLB The Show 19, but because he was a free agent then, the cover was only a placeholder that showed Harper in a nondescript hoodie. Now that he's signed his record-breaking deal, Sony has released the official cover art showing Harper in his Phillies garb.

Breaking News: Harper, Phillies reach agreement:https://t.co/fCHLTdfb4J pic.twitter.com/PCYVTx5j2u

Harper's deal, which has yet to be officially confirmed by the Phillies and is pending a physical, also includes a no-trade clause and no opt-out clause, so we could continue to see Harper playing for the Phillies until 2031. In the deal, Harper makes an average of $24.4 million per season. While massive, it doesn't even crack the top ten of the MLB's highest annual salary list.

Switch's Resident Evil Games Are More Expensive Than Expected

about X hours ago from

Capcom is bringing three classic Resident Evil games--Resident Evil HD Remaster, 0, and 4--to Nintendo Switch on May 20. All three are now available to pre-purchase through the Eshop, but as the digital store reveals, they're a bit pricier than you might expect.

All three Resident Evil games are listed on Switch's storefront for $30 / £30 apiece. Not only is that price tag surprising considering each game is several generations old by this point, it is $10 more than the titles cost on other platforms.

This certainly isn't the first time the Switch versions of some games have turned out to be more expensive than on other consoles; since the system launched, many publishers have charged slightly more for Switch games to offset the cost of manufacturing cartridges. Such was the case with Rime and LA Noire, among others.

Fortnite Season 8 Week 1 Secret Battle Star Location (Discovery Challenge Guide)

Season 8 of Fortnite is officially underway, and a lot has changed in the hit battle royale game. There are new areas of the island to explore, as well as a slew of new skins and cosmetics to unlock.

But as they say, the more things change, the more they stay the same, and that holds especially true for Fortnite. Just as in seasons past, Epic Games will be rolling out new challenges to complete every week in Season 8. Clear these and you'll be rewarded with Battle Stars, which in turn will level your Battle Pass up and unlock the new Season 8 skins and rewards.

On top of that, if you finish all of the challenges from a given week, you'll complete one of Fortnite's Discovery challenges--this season's equivalent of the Snowfall challenges from Season 7. Each Discovery challenge you complete will reward you with a special loading screen, which contains a clue pointing you to a free item hiding somewhere around the island.
