Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen Coming To Nintendo Switch

Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen, the special edition release of the 2012 RPG, is coming to Nintendo Switch. Capcom released an announcement trailer that shows the game as it runs on Nintendo's handheld, and dropped a release date of April 23. It will cost $30.

Dragon's Dogma received a positive reception upon its release in 2012, and Capcom quickly produced the enhanced "Dark Arisen" version with extra content and features on PS3 and Xbox 360. It was later ported to PC and then to PS4 and Xbox One. Dark Arisen included a new Bitterblack Isle dungeon for end-game adventurers, high-level weapons and armor, and visual enhancements. This Switch version will include a tweaked UI to improve visability on the Switch screen, and you can use the online functionality (Pawn trading system) without a Nintendo Switch Online membership.

The high skill ceiling and engrossing larger-than-life battles drew comparisons to the Dark Souls series, among others. It became a cult classic among fans of the emerging subgenre that has become known as Souls-likes. But it was also a uniquely risky game that tried new twists, some of which worked better than others.

Fortnite Patch Notes For Today (7.10 Update 3): Suppressed Sniper Rifle Added, Stormwing Nerfed

about X hours ago from

Epic Games has detailed the content of Fortnite's third content update for version 7.10 of the battle royale title. Although the patch makes a number of tweaks, the headline feature is the introduction of the Suppressed Sniper Rifle. "Trade power for stealth with the Suppressed Sniper Rifle," reads the weapon's description. "Drop in now and sneak up on your enemies."

The Suppressed Sniper comes in both Epic and Legendary rarities, and you'll find it as floor loot and in chests, vending machines, and supply drops. It first a single shot that doesn't deals lower damage but comes with the added benefit of letting you remain stealthy.

Another significant change is a nerf to the game's lone flying vehicle, the X-4 Stormwing. Players receive significantly less knockback when hit by the plane, while the plane takes more damage when it hits a structure. The spread of its machinegun has also increased significantly, and the Stormwing itself now has an 80% spawn rate, rather than 100%. It's a notable nerf overall to the plane, which has been the source of some complaints for weeks.

"Trade power for stealth with the Suppressed Sniper Rifle," reads the weapon's description. "Drop in now and sneak up on your enemies."

Additionally, The Block--a space where creations from the community are showcased--has been updated with an arena created by community member KojackNumber2. The custom area is focused on acrobatics, and as such features lots of bounce pads to launch players around.

The Six Shooter, meanwhile, has been vaulted, as has the Uncommon, Common, and Rare variants of the Burst Assault Rifle. This means these weapons will no longer drop in the game. As with most items that are thrown into the vault, it may show up again in the future. The Dual Pistols have been pulled out of the vault and are available to use in-game once again.

Bury Me, My Love Review - Trials And Tribulations

Take a group of people and you'll find numerous differences between each and every one of them. The one undeniable truth is that they're all human, and yet this fact can be all-too-easily forgotten when that same group of people are refugees. Certain politicians, media outlets, and xenophobic hate groups like to wash that individuality away, painting refugees and migrants in monolithic terms as something to fear. It's a harmful and blatant lie, but this emphasis on fear has proven successful throughout history in shaping people's opinions. Bury Me, My Love, a text-based adventure game from French developer The Pixel Hunt, presents a much more honest and truthful look at the human beings involved in the migrant crisis, taking inspiration from actual refugee stories to tell an eye-opening tale that's equal parts heartbreaking, terrifying, and inspiring.

Deadpool Director Making New Mature Animated Series For Netflix

Over the past year Netflix has been increasing its focus on animated content, and there are some high-profile projects set to hit the service. Directors Tim Miller (Deadpool, the upcoming Terminator sequel) and David Fincher (The Social Network, Seven) are the latest names to work a new animated series for the company.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Miller and FIncher will executively produce a series titled Love, Death & Robots for Netflix. It's an 18-part anthology show aimed at an mature audience that will span several genres, such as sci-fi, fantasy, horror, and comedy. The animation styles will vary too, from traditional 2D to more modern CG styles, and each episode will run from 5 to 15 minutes. While it does not yet have a premiere date, Netflix has released some images from the show. Check them out below:

In a statement, Miller said: "Love, Death & Robots is my dream project. It combines my love of animation and amazing stories. Midnight movies, comics, books, and magazines of fantastic fiction have inspired me for decades, but they were relegated to the fringe culture of geeks and nerds of which I was a part. I'm so f***ing excited that the creative landscape has finally changed enough for adult-themed animation to become part of a larger cultural conversation."

Fortnite is one of the most popular games on this dear planet Earth right now, and now a new report provides new insight into how much money the game made in 2018.
