about X hours ago from

Cities: Skylines publisher Paradox Interactive has announced it is partnering with Microsoft to bring its opening modding platform, Paradox Mods, to Xbox One. Beginning today, February 20, players will be able to download and play mods for select Paradox titles on Microsoft's console.

Through this partnership, mod creators can now easily distribute their mods across PC and Xbox One "with a single upload" using either GOG or the Paradox Launcher.

"Modding has been, and remains an important part of the Paradox community," Paradox Mods product owner Andres Törlind said. "As we have diversified the way we distribute our games, we want to make sure all our players can take part in the creation process."

Anthem Combo Guide: Primers, Detonators, And Each Javelin's Special Effect

about X hours ago from

There's quite a bit that Anthem doesn't explicitly tell you in its tutorial or first few hours. The basics--such as shooting, dodging, and flying--are covered, but several of the game's more nuanced mechanics, like executing a combo during combat, are left for you to figure out. Setting up and executing a combo isn't necessary for beating Anthem, but understanding how to do so--and also knowing how each Javelin does so differently--can really help with tackling the game's Grandmaster difficulties.

To combo in Anthem, you'll first need to know which of a Javelin's unique abilities act as a primer and which are a detonator. Primers typically cause a status effect to an enemy, such as ice or acid, and set an enemy up for a combo. A detonator, meanwhile, will execute a combo on an enemy that has been primed. There are also standard abilities in the game, which neither prime nor detonate, and the Storm's Ultimate attack--Elemental Storm--is both a primer and detonator. In-game, primers are marked in the Forge customization window with a circle icon, and detonators are identified by a four-pronged star icon. If a weapon does neither, you won't see either symbol.

New Pokemon Go Limited Research Event Features First Chance To Catch Clamperl

New Pokemon Go Limited Research Event Features First Chance To Catch Clamperl

Niantic has announced a new Limited Research event for Pokemon Go. Much like a Community Day, the event will run for three hours this coming Saturday, February 23, and it'll give players their first opportunity to catch a never-before-available Pokemon: Clamperl.

During the Limited Research event, players will be able to receive special Field Research tasks by spinning the Photo Disc at PokeStops. Other Water Pokemon, such as Krabby and Wailmer, will also appear more frequently throughout the event, and players will be rewarded with twice the normal amount of Stardust for every Water-type they catch.

Just as during the first Limited Research event, you'll be able to complete the special Field Research tasks you collect any time, even after the event ends, but they'll only be distributed during the designated hours. Completing these tasks will end in an encounter with Clamperl, one of the last remaining Gen 3 Pokemon yet to appear in Go.

Netflix's Umbrella Academy: Every Change Between The Show And The Comics

1. Mom's design

Unsurprisingly, a lot of the most immediately obvious changes between comic and show for Umbrella Academy came in the design area--after all, it would be pretty tough to completely translate all of Gabriel Ba's hyper stylized artwork into live action without some serious maneuvering. This is pretty apparent in the design of Grace, AKA "Mom," the Hargreeves family nanny who was upgraded from a full on tin can style robot like you might see on a show like The Jetsons to an incredibly humanoid android designed to look like a 1950s housewife. That's right, the show went full Westworld.

New Apex Legends Weapon Announced, Havoc Arrives Tomorrow

about X hours ago from

Respawn Entertainment has revealed that a new gun is on the way to its popular battle royale title, Apex Legends. The announcement was short and sweet, with a video of the rifle in question being posted to the official Apex Legends Twitter account. The video has a glitching effect going on, so it's difficult to get a good look at it, but it seems like the weapon can be fired like an automatic rifle and will have an alternate fire that lets the player charge a shot. Take a look for yourself below.

Respawn hasn't said exactly when the new weapon will be added to Apex Legends, only that it'll be available tomorrow (February 20). Of course, we'll be at hand to let you know when it's available on PS4, Xbox One, and PC. We'll also take it for a bit of a test run and bring you some video of it in action. Depending on how it performs, we may even add it to our list of best Apex Legends guns.
