Anthem Issues And Future Patches Detailed: Loot Drops, HDR On PS4/Xbox One, And More

about X hours ago from

BioWare has detailed current and upcoming changes for Anthem, its loot driven shooter that officially released on PS4, Xbox One, and PC today. A post on the game's Reddit page opens by stating that the developer is able to make some fixes without the need for a patch, but notes that others will require players to download an update.

In the former category, BioWare has already addressed a number of issues that were reported by the community, including a bug that displayed and rewarded the incorrect amount of Coin for some activities, and another that was causing rain to fall more often than intended. There has also been tweaks to the kind of items that chests drop, as well as how the shield performs, among other things.

BioWare is also working on some other fixes which, as mentioned above, will require the player to download an update. These include an issue that would result in the final boss in the game's Heart of Rage stronghold not appearing, problems with HDR on PS4 and Xbox One, and game crashes. You can see the full list of live and upcoming changes below.

Smash Bros. Ultimate Update Out Now, Fixes Challenge Bug

about X hours ago from

Nintendo has released a new update for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. This patch, version 2.0.1, is a fairly minor one; it doesn't make any new balance adjustments to the game, but it does resolve an issue with one of its Challenges.

Specifically, the patch fixes a bug that arose following the recent 2.0.0 update, which prevented players from completing an Adventure Challenge featuring King K. Rool, even if the conditions had been met. Once the update has been installed, load your Adventure save data and the issue will be resolved.

The aforementioned 2.0.0 update made some big changes to the game, the most notable of which was the addition of Piranha Plant, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate's first DLC character. Early adopters were able to receive the new fighter for free, but those who missed out on the offer have the option of purchasing it from the Eshop for $5.

Where Is Xur? Destiny 2 Location And Exotic Weapons Guide (Feb. 22-26)

It's nearly the end of the Season of the Forge, which means Destiny 2 is gearing up for new content. It also means there are a few last season-ending events to partake in before everything resets on March 5, including the Iron Banner this week and a Triple Infamy Gambit event starting on February 26. There are also just two more visits before the end of the season from Xur, Emissary of the Nine, from whom you can buy Exotic weapons and armor.

You'll find Xur this week on Io, in the Giant's Scar region. From the transmat location, hop on your sparrow and head north. Follow the western edge of the area, where you'll find a cliff wall, and look for a cave cut within it. You'll find Xur within.

The gun Xur offers this week is Graviton Lance, which is great if you're spending some time in the final Iron Banner of the season. The pulse rifle does particularly high damage with its second shot, and kills with Graviton Lance create an explosion that spits off Void projectiles that hit other enemies. It's also a highly accurate gun that does a lot of damage, which makes it great for hitting people at range in the Crucible.

Pokemon Go Finally Adding A Way To Change Teams--But At A Price

Pokemon Go Finally Adding A Way To Change Teams--But At A Price

More than two years after the game launched, Pokemon Go will finally give players the option to change their teams. Niantic has announced a new item called the Team Medallion, which will go on sale in the in-game shop beginning February 26 and allow users to switch their allegiance to another team one time.

The Team Medallion will cost 1,000 PokeCoins, which makes it fairly pricey, as a bundle of 1,200 coins runs for $10 USD. There are a few caveats as to how it works as well. You can only purchase one Team Medallion every 365 days, so once you switch teams, you'll be locked into your choice for the next year.

Shortly after players first begin Pokemon Go, they're asked to join one of three teams: Mystic, Instinct, and Valor, which are represented by the Legendary birds Articuno, Zapdos, and Moltres, respectively. Up until now, however, your choice has been permanent, so if you've been itching to switch sides, this will be your first opportunity to do so.
