Chucky TV Show Brings The Killer Doll Back To Screens

about X hours ago from

Even though the latest movie in the long-running Child's Play series was released less than two years ago, last July it was announced that the franchise was to be entirely rebooted as a new film without the involvement of creator Dan Mancini. However, it has now been confirmed that Mancini's story of killer doll Chucky will continue as TV show.

The show will be simply titled Chucky and is being developed at Syfy. Mancini will write the series, and will produce alongside long-term partner David Kirschner, as well as Nick Antosca, who worked with Mancini on the hit horror anthology series Channel Zero.

In a statement, Mancini said: "I've long wanted to bring Chucky to television and Syfy is the perfect network for us. The show will be a fresh take on the franchise, allowing us to explore Chucky's character with a depth that is uniquely afforded by the television series format, while staying true to the original vision that has terrorized audiences for over three decades now."

Fortnite Mobile Patch Adds Bluetooth Controller Support

about X hours ago from

Fortnite's latest update adds the extra gear and bug fixes we've come to expect from Epic's regular updates, but one surprising addition comes after a long wait. The 7.30 update, which released just today across all platforms, finally adds bluetooth controller support on mobile devices.

Upon downloading the update, Android players will be able to use most Bluetooth gamepads and adapters including Steelseries Stratus XL, Gamevice, and Moto Gamepad. Players on iOS can use the MFi controllers like the Steelseries Nimbus and Gamevice. It also adds 60 Hz gameplay on some Android models, for those who want performance out of their mobile play.

Other additions in v7.30 include the chiller grenade and the return of the Solid Gold limited-time mode. The chiller grenade has a knock-back effect that makes enemies slide along the ground with icy shoes but be careful because it also affects your own teammates. The Solid Gold LTM makes every weapon drop Legendary quality, letting you more easily try out some new ones, and also provides more crafting materials.

Destiny 2 Update Rebalances Supers And Wrecks Nova Warp--Read The Patch Notes

about X hours ago from

Along with Destiny 2's new Exotic weapon quest, The Draw, comes a big new update to the game that is likely to have some pretty sweeping changes for the Crucible, Destiny's competitive mode. The update rebalances basically all of the ultra-powerful Super abilities players use in the game, making some a little stronger and a few much less powerful.

Chief among the nerfs in Update 2.1.4 is the one to Nova Warp, one of the Supers added to the Warlock class with Destiny 2's big Forsaken expansion. The extremely powerful attack allowed players to fire off an explosion all around their bodies that vaporized anyone unlucky enough to get close. It was a Super that was tough to deal with when you were facing it down in the Crucible, seemingly lasting forever and absolutely destroying players at great distances.

Bungie has reeled in Nova Warp quite a bit, slowing down your movement speed while you're charging the explosion and increasing the energy cost of each charge, resulting in fewer explosions. Bungie also decreased the damage the attack can do to other players by 27% and dropped its duration by almost seven seconds.

Destiny 2 Ascendant Challenge Location Guide Week 4 (Jan. 29-Feb. 5): How To Complete The Week 4 Challenge

Destiny 2 Ascendant Challenge Location Guide Week 4 (Jan. 29-Feb. 5): How To Complete The Week 4 Challenge

Each week brings a shuffling of content to Destiny 2, and this week that includes the new Exotic weapon quest to reclaim the Destiny 1 hand cannon, The Last Word. The Ascendant Challenge, on the other hand, is not actually new--we're actually back to the fourth week of the cycle of challenges. But whether you've done it before or not, there's good reason to give it a shot, as Powerful gear awaits you as a reward. Here's where to go and what to do to complete the current Ascendant Challenge.

Before you try to tackle the Ascendant Challenge, the same requirements as always hold true; most notably, you need a Tincture of Queensfoil. This is a consumable item that you'll happen upon while playing in the Dreaming City, although you can also buy them. Using a Tincture gives you the Ascendance buff, which allows you to see a Taken portal. It's this portal you must go through to complete the Ascendant Challenge. Along with a Tincture, you have to grab the Ascendant Challenge bounty from Petra in the Dreaming City; it's through this that you actually get your Powerful gear.
