Kallie Plagge's Most Anticipated Game Of 2019: Animal Crossing Switch

With 2019 right around the corner, we've polled GameSpot's staff to find out what games they are looking forward to most in the new year. To be eligible, a game must simply have a release date currently planned for 2019. Of course, we all know nothing is set in stone; there's always a chance some games could slip into 2020. When you're done reading this entry, follow along with all of our other end-of-the-year coverage collected in our Best of 2018 hub.

Animal Crossing Switch was revealed during a Nintendo Direct this past September, and you might remember that the announcement followed a bait-and-switch in which Isabelle was announced as a fighter in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. As much as I like playing as Isabelle in Smash now, I was deeply disappointed in the moments between the two reveals. I knew my town in New Leaf was a neglected disaster; I needed a fresh start, and Pocket Camp just didn't do it for me.

As a longtime fan of Resident Evil that had felt let down by the fifth and sixth entries in the series, Resident Evil 7 was a welcome return to form. It showed that, when it wanted to, Capcom could deliver a heart-pounding survival-horror experience that is worthy of the Resident Evil name. From top to bottom, Resident Evil 7 was a masterful execution of the genre, and it seems Capcom is readying another expertly crafted Resi experience with the remake of the second game.

Where Is Xur? Destiny 2 Location And Exotic Weapons Guide (Dec. 21-25)

Xur is back for another few days of rare Exotic deal-making in Destiny 2. His arrival marks your latest chance to snag a few Exotics you might be missing from the Year One collection, provided you have a few Legendary Shards burning a hole in your pocket.

This week, you'll find Xur in the Tower, behind the Dead Orbit area on the Hangar side. Since we're halfway through The Dawning, Destiny's holiday event, you might want to bake a few Strange Cookies to deliver to him as well--and you're going to want to take advantage of this chance if you want to unlock all the Dawning event Triumphs. Use our Dawning baking guide to get all the recipes you need for the event.

As usual, Xur has Exotic weapons and armor from before the launch of the Forsaken expansion, so you're out of luck if you were hoping for one of those cool new Black Armory Exotics. Xur's bag of Exotics includes Merciless, along with one piece of armor for each character class. Merciless is a high-powered fusion rifle, with one of the highest damage outputs in Destiny 2. Its Conserve Momentum perk makes it handy in a lot of boss fights and PvP situations, too--every time you score a hit with Merciless but don't rack up a kill, the charge speed on the next shot is increased, making it possible to fire faster and faster until you finally wreck your opponent.

Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Holiday Events Announced

about X hours ago from

Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 has rolled out its December 20 update, and along with it a slew of new holiday-themed events and modes. Two pillars of the multiplayer shooter have gotten their own bit of eggnog and nutmeg flavor to ring in the season: a Blackout holiday event, Winter Calling in Zombies, and a Winter Event stream for the Black Market.

In the Blackout holiday event, Blackout players can use tactical Snowballs and holiday-themed supply stashes. The maps are also decked out with festive lights and decorations. In Zombies, you can complete some unique challenges for new exclusive personalization items. These special challenges can be accepted from the Barracks, and taken alongside your regular Daily Calling challenges.

Finally, the Winter Event Stream has come to the Black Market, offering some winter loot like warpaints and gestures. Those will appear in the Contraband section, and you can complete the new Winter Event tiers alongside the current Absolute Zero tiers to unlock scads of new loot.

Surprise Holiday PS4 Flash Sale On US PlayStation Store, But Hurry

Apparently not content with the buffet of discounts already on offer during Week 2 of the PlayStation Store's Holiday Sale, Sony has picked a selection of titles that missed out on the discount treatment and--you guessed it--given them the discount treatment. But instead of a multi-week sale, this PSN Flash Sale will only last through the weekend, with prices going back up on December 24. So if you see something you like, jump on it. Like all things in this crazy world, these prices are temporary.

Among the standout deals is Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, which is on sale for $45. It comes with the standard multiplayer and Zombies modes, plus a new battle royale mode called Blackout. If epic RPGs are more your speed, you can pick up Dragon Quest XI for just $36. And while the standard edition of Red Dead Redemption 2 is still full price, the Special Edition is on sale for $70, and the Ultimate Edition is marked down to $90.

If you're having people over for the holidays, you might want to grab a party game or two. To that end, you can get people up off the couch (and working off all those holiday treats) with Just Dance 2019 for $24. Or, if your cohort is more the trivia or creative type, you can grab The Jackbox Party Pack 5 on sale for $21; it comes with five mini-games that support up to eight players who can use their phones as their controllers.

Does The Titans Season 1 Finale Have A Post Credits Scene? We Explain The Ending

The first season of Titans has come to a close, and the DC Universe original series is clearly unlike any other comic book TV show we've seen. Instead of aiming for a mainstream audience, Titans is a show whose primary goal is appealing to hardcore comic books fans and that was never more clear than in the Season 1 finale. Warning: The following contains spoilers for the finale Season 1 episode of Titans.

After spending an hour following Dick Grayson as he chases a homicidal Batman, it's revealed that he's actually mentally trapped in his darkest possible timeline. In this timeline, which is set five years from present day, Dick and Dawn have settled down to start a family, though they clearly don't trust each other when it comes to those they previously had relationships with. Meanwhile, Jason Todd has been paralyzed and left in a wheelchair, Commissioner Gordon was killed by the Joker, and Batman finally snapped.
