Pokemon Go Community Day For April Announced, Features Bagon

Now that March is nearly behind us and April is just around the corner, Niantic has shared the first details for April's Pokemon Go Community Day. The monthly event is scheduled to return on Saturday, April 13, and this time around it'll feature a rare Dragon Pokemon: Bagon.

All throughout the Community Day, Bagon will appear in the wild in greater numbers than it normally does, making it much easier to add some to your collection. Considering that Niantic typically introduces the Shiny form of that month's featured Pokemon during each Community Day, you'll also presumably have your first chance to catch a Shiny Bagon during this month's event.

Bagon is the base form of the powerful Dragon/Flying Pokemon Salamence, so you'll want to catch as many as you can during April's Community Day. If you manage to evolve any into Salamence up to an hour after the event ends, it will also learn an exclusive move, although Niantic hasn't revealed what that will be just yet.

Here's A Nice Incentive To Upgrade To Wolfenstein: Youngblood's Deluxe Edition

Here's A Nice Incentive To Upgrade To Wolfenstein: Youngblood's Deluxe Edition

This week, Bethesda released a new trailer and release date for Wolfenstein: Youngblood, the standalone sequel to Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus announced last year. It also detailed the game's special edition, dubbed the Deluxe Edition, and highlighted one particular feature that's fairly unusual but might make it a no-brainer for those interested in playing cooperatively with a friend.

The standard version of Wolfenstein: Youngblood has a retail price of $30 USD, while the Deluxe Edition goes for $40 USD. The Deluxe Edition includes a cyborg-themed skin pack, which is roughly par for the course with a special edition like this, but more notable is the inclusion of what's called the Buddy Pass. That extra $10 might be worth it for the Buddy Pass alone, because it allows you to grant limited access to the game to a friend, making it perfect for co-op play.

According to the Youngblood FAQ, you can send a Buddy Pass invite code to as many friends as you want. With the code, someone can play Youngblood with you in co-op for free. You can only play with one friend at a time, though, and you do need to be playing in order for someone else to use your pass.

Shovel Knight Dev Reveals Its Next Project

about X hours ago from

Yacht Club Games burst onto the indie scene in 2011 with Shovel Knight, a 2D side-scrolling platformer meant to evoke the NES-style sensibilities of yesteryear. Six years and numerous Shovel Knight expansions later, the indie developer has announced its second publishing effort in the form of Cyber Shadow.

Cyber Shadow, according to the official announcement, is a 2D side-scrolling platformer that combines "the level design principles of Mario, the skills and action of Ninja Gaiden, the enemy designs of Contra, and the dark visual aesthetic of Batman." Think The Messenger but in the future where everything, including the player character himself, is cybernetic. It looks slick, with fast-paced action necessitating precise platforming and quick reflexes. You'll be able to equip items, find secrets, upgrade your skills, and more, all while listening to a thumping soundtrack produced by Jake Kaufman (Shovel Knight, Crypt of the NecroDancer).

You can view the official trailer below.

Game Of Thrones Season 8 Documentary Coming To HBO After Finale

about X hours ago from

It's only a couple weeks until Season 8 of Game of Thrones debuts on HBO. However, the week after the series finale hits, the network will air a documentary about the making of the final season titled The Last Watch.

Coming on Sunday, May 26 at 9 PM ET / 11 PM PT--a week after the series finale--The Last Watch will recount the production from the set in Northern Ireland and the studios where the season was shot. It will follow the cast and crew through day-to-day production, dealing with the ins and outs of putting together one of the most anticipated finales in HBO's history. It will be directed by Jeanie Finlay.

But before fans get an in-depth look at how it all came together, the final season of Game of Thrones has to air, and it's premiering on Sunday, April 14. Earlier in the month, the first trailer for the series was revealed, and it left fans with a lot of questions and even more theories as to where Season 8 will go. Hopefully, it's a step in the right direction, as the last battle with the White Walkers in Season 7, Episode 6--"Beyond the Wall"--had some serious problems.

Sekiro Genichiro Boss Guide: How To Beat Your Nemesis

Facing Genichiro marks your first humiliation in From Software's latest punishing action game, Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice. After rescuing Kuro the Divine Heir from his captivity, you find Genichiro blocking your escape--and he quickly dismantles you for your insolence, quite literally.

After acquiring the Shinobi Prosthetic, though, you'll venture out into Ashina on a quest to free Kuro and avenge yourself on Genichiro. You'll get your chance before long, too, as he's just at the top of Ashina Castle, which is not too far from where you start when you awaken after your battle. It's possible to go pretty much straight there, besting a few bosses like the Chained Ogre, Gyoubu the Demon, and the Blazing Bull along the way. While the road is tough, nothing you've faced up to that point is as difficult as taking on Genichiro for the second time.

Luckily, we've got you covered. The tips below can help you deal with Genichiro's powerful attacks, and allow you to finally best him and get your revenge.

Watch The Borderlands PAX East Reveal Stream Here

about X hours ago from

Gearbox has spent weeks teasing announcements for PAX East, starting with one that very conspicuously looked like Borderlands and had a "3" attached. Just before the show kicks off, the studio has released a teaser for a Borderlands project. With the Gearbox panel at PAX East fast approaching, soon we'll see what it all means.

The PAX East panel takes place March 28, so check below for showtimes. We'll be bringing you news from the panel, but if you want to watch it all unfold live, set your alarm and come right back here at showtime to watch the stream.

The series of teases from Gearbox has often explicitly mentioned announcements coming at PAX East. Some have been clear references to Borderlands, while others have been more vague. Still others, like a tweet simply showing a malfunctioning umbrella, are either extremely metaphorical or the marketing team is pulling our collective legs.
