Destiny 2 Ascendant Challenge Location (January 8-15) Week 1: Where To Go And What To Do Guide

The latest weekly reset for Destiny 2 brings the new Niobe Labs content drop for The Black Armory expansion, but with it also comes another Ascendant Challenge. We've completed the Dreaming City's six-week cycle on Ascendant Challenges, which means that this week, we're back to the beginning. Here's where to go and what to do to complete the challenge.

As always, the Ascendant Challenge starts out with acquiring the corresponding bounty from Petra in the Dreaming City. You'll also need a Tincture of Queensfoil, a consumable item you can earn by taking part in certain activities in the Dreaming City (or you can outright buy one). Once you have both the bounty and a Tincture, you'll head to a Lost Sector, Aphelion's Rest, which is located in The Strand, just beneath the area where Petra is sometimes found. Using a Tincture will grant you a buff, Ascendance, that allows you to see a Taken portal. This one is located partway through the Lost Sector, atop a hill--it's hard to miss if you've used your Tincture.

Captain Marvel Blasts Into Space In Stylish New Posters

Captain Marvel is the latest movie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and it's set to hit theaters in March. Following the trailer that premiered earlier this week, we have a series of stylish new posters to promote the Dolby, IMAX, and 3D releases of the movie

Two of the posters are a variation on the same design, which shows Captain Marvel--aka Carol Danvers--blasting into the sky. The Dolby poster has a wartime propaganda feel, while the IMAX one takes a more cosmic approach. The 3D poster is a more regular design and shows star Brie Larson without the helmet she's wearing in the others. Check them out below:

The movie is directed by Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck. It also stars Samuel L. Jackson as SHIELD boss Nick Fury, plus Ben Mendelsohn (Star Wars: Rogue One), Jude Law (Sherlock Holmes), DeWanda Wise (She's Gotta Have It), and Gemma Chan (Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them). It hits theaters on March 8.

Resident Evil 2 Getting A Demo, And It's An Unusual One

about X hours ago from

The remake of Resident Evil 2 is creeping closer and closer, and soon you'll get a taste of the action. But true to the tense survival-horror tone of the series, it's going to be a race against the clock that tests your skills and wits, and once time has expired you're out of luck. The demo will be available to download from January 11 through January 31.

The "1-Shot Demo" for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One will last just 30 minutes. You'll be put into the shoes of Leon with a set of objectives to complete. If you finish them before the timer is up you can restart the mission to explore Raccoon City again to fill out the rest of the time. If you become a zombie snack, you'll be able to continue as much as you'd like until you hit the time limit.

Once you complete the demo, you'll get to view an exclusive new cinematic trailer. You won't be able to play the demo again once the time has expired, but you can view the trailer as much as you'd like.

Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen Coming To Nintendo Switch

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.

Fortnite Patch 7.10 Update 3: Suppressed Sniper Rifle Added, Six Shooter Vaulted

"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.
