New Free Game From Twitch/Amazon Prime Out Now, Before You Can Buy It

about X hours ago from

Twitch Prime regularly offers free games on a monthly basis, but January's offerings come with a twist. The company added an extra game to its rotation, and on top of that, it released it a few days before it's available widely to the public.

The new puzzle-platformer Pikuniku is available through Twitch Prime until February 28. However, it isn't actually out until January 24, so for the next few days you can grab it before it goes on sale. To claim your free games, you'll just have to link your Twitch Prime account to your Amazon account and then claim the games through the Twitch Prime site.

January's other Prime games include Hyper Light Drifter, Bomber Crew, Republique, and Orwell. The service is also still offering the Devolver Digital Holiday Pack, which contains The Messenger, Broforce, Hotline Miami, Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number, Strafe, Crossing Souls, and The Swords of Ditto. All of those are available until January 31, and once you claim them, they're yours forever.

Deadpool 3 Will Be "Completely Different," Says Ryan Reynolds

about X hours ago from

The huge success of the first Deadpool in 2016 took many surprise--the modestly budgeted X-Men spin-off was not only the most successful R-rated movie of all time, it made more money than most of the "regular" movies in the franchise. Last year's Deadpool 2 was also a huge hit, and inevitably a third movie is in the works. Star Ryan Reynolds has now hinted about what fans can expect from Deadpool 3.

In a recent interview with Variety, Reynolds revealed that development on Deadpool 3 had already started. Unsurprisingly he didn't give many details away, but he did suggest that the film won't be what is usually expected from the third part of a successful franchise. "[We're] looking to go in a completely different direction," he said. "Often, they reboot or change a character maybe like four movies too late."

It had previously been reported that Deadpool might appear in an X-Force movie ahead of Deadpool 3, with Bad Times at the El Royale's Drew Goddard directing. However, earlier this month, Deadpool creator Rob Liefeld revealed that X-Force had now been cancelled, due to the impending merger between Fox and Disney. Fox currently own the rights to all X-Men characters.

Destiny 2 Ascendant Challenge Location Guide Week 3 (Jan. 22-29)

about X hours ago from

With the weekly refresh of Destiny 2, another Ascendant Challenge is now available to help you climb toward the Power level cap of 650 that came with the game's latest expansion, The Black Armory. This week's Ascendant Challenge returns from the third week of Forsaken. Here's where its portal is located and what to do inside.

If you've done an Ascendant Challenge (or several at this point) before, you'll have an idea of how this goes. Start out by buying the appropriate bounty from Petra in the Dreaming City. Alongside that, you'll need a Tincture of Queensfoil. Once you consume that, you get the Ascendance buff that allows you to see the Taken portal--after you've found it.

This particular portal is located in the Spire of Keres; you can see its location in the video above. Go through it to visit the Shattered Ruins in the Ascendant Plane, where are tasked with climbing a tower made of rocks without dying. Enemies will try to snipe you, and Taken rifts will try to boop you off the tower to your death. Be careful with where you move as you go toward the top; once you're there, kill the boss to complete the Ascendant Challenge.

Resident Evil 2 Review - Raccoon City Revisited

Resident Evil 2 Review - Raccoon City Revisited

Reliving familiar frights can often make for a less-than-exciting horror experience. But with the remake of Resident Evil 2, Capcom shows respect for the original while also going to great lengths to give the macabre atmosphere and tense gameplay a noticeable upgrade. In doing so, this revamp of the classic survival horror game shows that the series can still offer a terrifying experience like no other.

You once again play as either Leon Kennedy or Claire Redfield. A viral outbreak has unleashed hordes of zombies and other grotesque monsters upon Raccoon City, leading to a series of dangerous and nightmare-inducing encounters for the two characters. While both protagonists' storylines have similar plots and take place in the same locations, there are different supporting characters and unique challenges in each that set the two playthroughs apart.

Life Is Strange 2: Episode 2 Review - With Great Power

Life Is Strange 2: Episode 2 Review - With Great Power

The main thing I've learned from having a sibling is that you can be polar opposites who bicker endlessly, but when push comes to shove there is nothing you wouldn't do to keep them happy, safe, and protected. This sentiment is the heart and soul of Life is Strange 2 and continues to ground the strong narrative through the second chapter of the Diaz brothers' journey away from their home in Seattle and toward a new one in Puerto Lobos.

The second chapter of Life Is Strange 2 begins in the snow-laden Willamette National Forest in Oregon. It is several days after Daniel learned the tragic truth of why they had to flee Seattle, and the ensuing outburst that revealed his telekinetic powers. The brothers are now faced with the reality of managing not only their survival while on the run, but also the nuances of how to handle Daniel's abilities. Sean sets down ground rules for keeping the powers a secret while working with his younger brother to hone them. This supernatural element adds a new dimension to gameplay in that certain situations and objects can be manipulated by Daniel with your say-so.
