Where Is Xur? Destiny 2 Location, New Exotics, And Invitation Of The Nine Guide (May 3-May 7)

The latest timed event in Destiny 2, the spring-themed Revelry, is winding down this weekend. You've only got until the next weekly reset on Tuesday, May 7, to dive into the Verdant Forest, complete your Triumphs, and unlock the game's latest Exotic weapon, the Arbalest. If you're still struggling, we've got a guide that can help nabbing Arbalest go a little quicker. And if you need more Exotics, good news: the snake-faced Xur returns once again with a bag full of them.

Head to Io to find Xur this week. He's hanging out in the Gaint's Scar region. From the spawn point, ride your sparrow north and head to the cliff wall on the left side of the area. Look for a cave entrance: Inside, you'll find Xur waiting and, as usual, acting a little weird.

Rocket League Review Bombed After Epic Acquisition Announced; Steam Steps In

about X hours ago from

The popular competitive esport Rocket League has become the latest victim of review bombing, following news that developer Psyonix is being acquired by Epic Games. Concerns that the acquisition would mean the game will be pulled from Steam led to a flurry of negative reviews on the platform, before Steam's new anti-bombing tool was deployed to stop it.

Steam reviews recently dipped from "Very Positive" down to "Mixed." That prompted Steam to implement its tool that excludes periods of "off-topic review activity" from the aggregate score. The negative reviews are still visible, and they almost universally reference the Epic acquisition, but they're no longer counted in the average.

Concerns about the game's exclusivity stemmed from a statement (via The Verge) that mentioned the game will be coming to the Epic Games Store later this year. It said "in the meantime" it will still be available for purchase on Steam, and that "thereafter" it will continue to be supported--reportedly through the release of patches and DLC.

Star Wars Day 2019: Best Deals On Star Wars Games, Movies, Lego Sets, And More

In the age of social media, there are a lot of unofficial, hashtag-driven "holidays" that exist these days, but few are as long-standing or beloved as May 4, the day Star Wars fans have an excuse to tell each other "May the Fourth be with you" and chuckle at the pun. Fun fact: The phrase is believed to date back to 1979, the two-year anniversary of the original Star Wars hitting theaters, and incidentally the same day Margaret Thatcher officially took office as Prime Minister of the UK. To celebrate the dual occasion, the British Conservative Party published an ad in the paper that day declaring, "May the Fourth Be With You, Maggie. Congratulations."

Ever since, May 4 has become known as Star Wars Day, an annual celebration of Star Wars for fans all over the world. And as with other pop culture holidays (like Mario Day on March 10), online retailers are taking the opportunity to sell their best Star Wars merch at a discount. To make it easier for you, we've rounded up some of the best Star Wars Day sales happening this weekend and highlighted some specific products that caught our eye.

Just Look At These Absurd Godzilla-Themed Xbox One Consoles

If you like your consoles extremely textured and spiky, you're in luck: Microsoft has announced a promotion for the upcoming film Godzilla: King of the Monsters, with four custom-themed Xbox One X consoles as the prizes. Each one is modeled after an iconic creature from Godzilla lore, including the King of the Monsters itself.

You can enter the sweepstakes by retweeting the promotional Xbox tweet by June 7. You have to be age 14 or over, and minors need a parent or guardian's permission. If you win you'll be notified via Twitter direct message. Four winners will get one of the specialized Xbox One X consoles.

Those consoles are modeled after Mothra, Rodan, Ghidorah, and of course, Godzilla. The film, which releases on May 31, refers to this collection of monsters as "Titans" and has them brawl for monster supremacy. It's directed by Michael Dougherty and stars Millie Bobby Brown (Stranger Things), Vera Farmiga (The Departed), and Charles Dance (Game of Thrones).

Can You Name All 20 Call Of Duty 4: Modern Warfare Maps?

Call of Duty is one of the biggest video game series around. Black Ops 4's popularity is still going strong, even with the next Call of Duty game on the horizon. And although the series was huge from the very beginning, it owes a decent proportion of its success to the groundbreaking game that was Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare.

CoD4's multiplayer modes completely changed the series--and the shooter genre--and its popularity continued into the sequels Modern Warfare 2 and Modern Warfare 3. If rumors are to be believed, the next Call of Duty will be Modern Warfare 4 and will no doubt leverage the franchise's legacy. But how much can you remember of the first game in the subseries?

To test your knowledge, we're asking you to name all 20 of the game's multiplayer maps, just by glancing at images of their respective loading screens.
