God Eater 3 Review - Attack On Aragami

Gigantic inhuman entities threatening mankind are something that we're all familiar with in the year 2019. Monster Hunter, Attack on Titan, Godzilla--there's something inherently compelling about the trope where desperate survivors pit themselves against incredible odds and incredibly large monsters at the end of the world. God Eater 3's narrative, much like its predecessors, leans heavily into this conceit and tells an enjoyable (if light) tale as icing on its frenzied action-RPG cake.

Part of a series that has historically been for PlayStation portable devices, God Eater 3 is the first entry created with home consoles and PC as its primary platforms. Also significant is a new developer, Marvelous, a studio perhaps more well-known for its contribution to games with prodigious amounts of swimsuit DLC than the stuff of the monster-hunting variety. This tonal shift isn't as evident as you might think, though, especially since the series was already awash with anime tropes and aesthetic choices. God Eater 3 doesn't deliver any real twists and honestly, that's fine. The real friends that you make along the way in God Eater games aren't the ones with compelling backstories; they're the ones that help you kill Aragami with the sort of precision reserved for surgical procedures.

Activision Issues Voluntary Refund For Guitar Hero Live

about X hours ago from

Activision has announced that it is offering a refund for any customers who purchased Guitar Hero Live after December 2017. You only qualify for a refund if you bought Guitar Hero Live in the US.

There hasn't been a specific statement regarding why Activision is offering the refund, just a blog post detailing how you can secure one. To qualify for a refund, you must have purchased Guitar Hero Live between December 1, 2017 and January 1, 2019. Activision will need confirmation of the purchase, such as a receipt or credit card statement, as well. If you fit these qualifications, then submit a Claim Form before May 1, and you'll be refunded your money. You can still submit the form if you have no confirmation of purchase, but then your refund isn't guaranteed.

Releasing in October 2015, Guitar Hero Live introduced a new mode to the music game franchise, called Guitar Hero TV. In this mode, you'd play songs from the first-person perspective of the band's lead guitarist. Hitting your notes perfectly would earn you cheers from the crowd, while messing up one too many times would cause them to boo you off the stage. It's also the majority of Guitar Hero Live. The base game features 23 songs, while Guitar Hero TV includes over 200.

Between the ongoing Lunar New Year and Shiny Meltan events, this week has certainly been a busy one for Pokemon Go players, and now yet another event is underway in the mobile game. This weekend only, Niantic is holding a special friendship event, which offers players extra bonuses for sending gifts and trading Pokemon.

All weekend long, players' friendship levels will increase twice as quickly as normal. Moreover, the amount of Stardust you need in order to trade Pokemon with friends has been reduced by half, and the amount of Candy you'll receive for each trade is doubled.

The friendship event runs from now until 1 PM PT / 4 PM ET on Monday, February 11. You can read more about it on the official Pokemon Go website. This is an especially good time to trade Pokemon in the game; not only has the Stardust requirement been reduced, but as part of the aforementioned Lunar New Year event, you have a much higher likelihood of receiving a Lucky Pokemon in trades.

Apex Legends Review - Battle Royale The Way It Should Be

Apex Legends Review - Battle Royale The Way It Should Be

If Apex Legends has one thing going for it, it's the feeling that the game is complete--something not all battle royale games can boast. The explosion of popularity in the genre means there are a lot of games that do last-player-standing competition pretty well, but with some kinks. Some existing shooters are adding battle royale modes to their offerings, fitting their existing gameplay into a new framework; other battle royale games are constantly struggling to work out bugs, kinks, and balancing issues; and still others started life as something else and managed to retrofit their ideas the battle royale mold, with some fitting better than others.

Meanwhile, Apex Legends focuses on doing one thing extremely well. That thing is team competition in the BR genre; at launch, it only includes a team-based mode where 20 groups of three players square off against each other. Everything in Apex Legends works to further teamwork: that includes a number of improvements to issues that plague the whole genre, like cleaning up inventory management and increasing accessibility, and the addition of new ideas, like squad composition elements and special character abilities.
