about X hours ago from

[Update] The Inside Xbox stream for April has begun, watch below. [Original story] April's Inside Xbox live stream is scheduled for today at 2:00 PM PT / 5:00 PM ET / 10:00 PM BST. The show will cover pre-E3 announcements, as well as news for Game Pass and several upcoming Xbox One games. You'll be able to watch the stream on Twitch, YouTube, and here on GameSpot, where we'll also be delivering all the latest news as it's announced.

The April Inside Xbox live stream is scheduled to be an hour long, and "will explore some exciting Xbox Game Pass news," Xbox Wire editor-in-chief Will Tuttle wrote in a blog post. The show will also provide further details for the upcoming anniversary update for Sea of Thieves and footage of the beta for Warhammer: Chaosbane. An exclusive look at Rage 2 will also occur during the live stream, followed by "several surprises" for other games.

Rage 2 seems to be the focus of the live stream, as watching the show on Mixer while logged into your Microsoft account will unlock a Rage 2-themed avatar item. So far, most of the gameplay trailer for Rage 2 have focused on the game's fast-paced combat--which incorporates destructive powers to make you feel like an unstoppable superhero. However, there haven't been too many examples of the game's driving components--which is surprising given developer Avalanche Studios' work on Mad Max.

New Avengers: Endgame Twitter Emojis Include Some Surprising Faces

about X hours ago from

Look, there are a lot of characters in the MCU--but apparently Twitter is pretty determined to make sure we remember absolutely all of them. The social network added not one, not two, but 40 new character specific hashtag emojis for Avengers: Endgame--and some of them were a bit of a surprise.

The list of emojis includes all the heroes you'd expect, of course. Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, Black Widow, and Hawkeye/Ronin (that's right, Clint gets two) are all on the list, as well as Rocket, Nebula, Captain Marvel, War Machine, Okoye, and Ant-Man. But on top of the characters we've already seen represented in the trailers, there are also emojis for every hero who has been confirmed dusted, from Dr. Strange to the Winter Soldier and every Guardian of the Galaxy, as well as some unexpected throwbacks to some fan favorites.

Thor: Ragnarok breakouts, the lovable revolutionary Korg and his knife-handed friend, Miek, both have their own emojis now. Red Skull got one under the name "Stonekeeper," as a nod to his surprise cameo in Infinity War. Marvel Studio's boss Kevin Fiege has one, for the hashtag "#MarvelStudios" and so does the Infinity Gauntlet itself, in addition to Thanos.

Pokemon Go: Shiny Buneary Now Available In Easter Eggstravaganza Event

Niantic has kicked off a new in-game event in Pokemon Go. The annual Eggstravaganza returns for another year from April 16-23, giving players everywhere a chance to hatch more baby Pokemon, complete Egg-themed Field Research, and even catch a new Shiny.

Throughout the Eggstravaganza, you'll be able to hatch Pichu, Smoochum, Magby, and other baby Pokemon from 2 km Eggs. You'll also receive twice the normal amount of Candy for every Egg you hatch, allowing you to power up your Pokemon more quickly. On top of that, Incubators will be two times as effective during the event, and Lucky Eggs will last twice as long as normal.

In addition to those bonuses, you'll be able to get special Field Research tasks revolving around Eggs from Poke Stops. The bunny Pokemon Buneary will also appear in the wild more frequently throughout the Eggstravaganza, and you'll have your first chance to come across its Shiny form. You can read more on the Pokemon Go website.

Cobra Kai's Ralph Macchio On Daniel LaRusso's Season 2 Evolution, From Student To Sensei

Cobra Kai's Ralph Macchio On Daniel LaRusso's Season 2 Evolution, From Student To Sensei

It's a blisteringly cold December day in Atlanta, Georgia, and I find myself sitting outside, watching something truly special. While it will be portrayed on-screen as a sunny day in California's San Fernando Valley, the set of Cobra Kai Season 2 was anything but warm when I arrived to watch former Miyagi-Do student Daniel LaRusso (Ralph Macchio) become the sensei he likely never expected to be.

The scene that unfolded in front of me is a rather simple one. Daniel is in the backyard of Mr. Miyagi's home, which was painstakingly recreated by the show's production team in an Atlanta parking lot, teaching one of his new students. Given that he trained under Mr. Miyagi (Pat Morita) in the Karate Kid films, though, the only way he knows to teach kids karate is through chores.

However, those are lessons from a different time. Now, as I sat in Miyagi's backyard while cameras rolled on LaRusso instructing a new student about how to sand the floor--"Left circle, right circle"--it hit me that even though Season 2 will bring Daniel full-circle in the same way Season 1 did Johnny Lawrence (William Zabka), the lessons he's imparting aren't exactly the same as the ones he learned from Miyagi. Instead, like the Daniel character itself, Miyagi-Do has evolved.

Spring 2019's Must-See Anime And Where To Watch Them (US)

Across Crunchyroll, Funimation, Hidive, Netflix, Hulu, and VRV, there are over 30 new Spring 2019 anime premiering in the US. Understandably, it can be a little daunting to keep up with dozens of series just to find the handful worth watching. So to help, we've highlighted the eight that currently stand above the rest. In the following guide, we detail why each is worth keeping your eye on. They aren't ranked in any particular order.

Spring 2019 continues several winter anime as well (such as The Rising of the Shield Hero), but for the purposes of this guide, we're only promoting series that premiered in April. As a reminder, the Spring 2019 season just started. So, for now anyway, this guide does not point to the anime we think are definitely the best for the season, just those that show the most promise.

Where to watch: Crunchyroll, Funimation, VRV

GameStop Will Let You Return New Games For Store Credit Within 48 Hours

about X hours ago from

We've all been there before--you purchased a new game, but after playing it for a while, realized it wasn't what you thought it was. Maybe it was too buggy, or lacked the features you had expected, or was just boring. Maybe you saw a really great deal somewhere else the next day. Regardless of the reason, most retailers won't allow you to return a game and get a refund once you've taken it out of the original packaging and played it--but a new GameStop policy will offer gamers a 48-hour window to do just that.

According to a leaked document from a reputable source on Twitter, GameStop is launching a "Guaranteed to Love It" program where consumers can return a purchased game within 48 hours of the game's launch and receive a full refund in the form of store credit (not including tax). The program is limited to $60 standard-edition new releases, and any paid PowerUp Rewards membership bonuses will not apply. The game can be opened and played; it just has to be in good condition, and you must still have the receipt.
