How To Transfer Xbox One Games And Saves To Series X/S

about X hours ago from

The Xbox Series X and Series S launched this week, marking a new generation and a significant upgrade from the previous gen. But this brave new era also marks a fuzzier line than console generations past, thanks to plentiful next-gen upgrades and backwards compatibility. You'll want to carry your game progress forward, which means transferring your saves. And to do this, you have a few options.

Importing Cloud Saves

The easiest by far is to use Microsoft's cloud saves. This is all taken care of automatically, and the save data is associated with your Xbox Live profile. An Xbox Live Gold subscription isn't required for the cloud save functionality, so as long as you have any Xbox Live profile, your saves are uploading to the cloud automatically. That means that once you sign in to your Xbox Series X or Series S with your existing profile, the cloud saves will download and let you pick up right from where you left off.

Pokemon Go Makes It A Little Easier To Get Mega Energy

about X hours ago from

Mega Evolutions made their debut in Pokemon Go back in August, and since then, developer Niantic has been fine-tuning the feature to make it easier for more players to enjoy. Last month, the studio outlined a slate of changes it planned to implement in the game soon, and now some of those adjustments have gone live.

Most notably, you can now earn Mega Energy by walking with a Buddy Pokemon, provided you've previously Mega-Evolved a Pokemon in your Buddy's evolutionary line. Before this, the only way to obtain Mega Energy was either by participating in Mega Raid Battles or completing certain Research tasks, so this change gives you a handy new option for collecting the energy.

Trainers, you can now earn Mega Energy by walking with your Buddy Pokémon and earn extra Candies with Mega-Evolved Pokémon! https://t.co/xk3YDJ02lG pic.twitter.com/rZq8S6enjn

McFarlane's Newest DC Multiverse Figures Are Some Of Its Best Yet

McFarlane Toys has had the DC license for almost a year now, with some of its biggest releases to come at the beginning of 2021. This fall gave us the likes of Azrael from the White Knight Universe and Dark Nights: Metal Batman, which are quite impressive. It's good to see McFarlane take advantage of the slew of new characters in the past five years, even if they are just different Batman variations and give fans a slice of something new.

For the rest of 2020 and early January, fans are going to be able to get Flash and Batman-Earth 52 two-pack, Flashpoint Batman, and Jason Todd as the Red Hood. McFarlane Toys provided Gamespot with some of the recent releases, and some sneak peeks at what's to come.

This two-pack recently released and is just one of the two-packs in these upcoming waves. The Flash packaged here does some slight variations from his single pack version: he has a very angry face and is lacking the Speed Force effects. Both figures have the same level of articulation except in one spot: the waist. With the Flash, his lightning belt takes away that particular point of movement. Red Death's costume, however, removes that detail and is able to actually turn his waist.

Turning Off PS5 Is Different Than PS4: Here's How To Do It

about X hours ago from

The PlayStation 5 is out now in most regions and launches on November 19 worldwide. Those upgrading have some new features to look forward to, including the DualSense's haptics. And while there are quite a few differences, turning off the PS5 console may be a puzzling one.

This is because the PlayStation Button on PlayStation 5 operates differently than it does on PlayStation 4. The DualShock 4's button, when tapped, takes you to your home screen. This is where you see tiles of your games, with the most-recently played displayed first. Holding the button brings up the quick menu overlay, where you can navigate down to Power to restart the PS4, put it in rest mode, or turn the console off completely. Power can also be accessed through the home screen by navigating to the top icons and scrolling to the right.

To access the quick menu overlay on PlayStation 5, though, you must tap the PS Button on the DualSense--not hold it. Holding the button brings up the home screen where you scroll through your games. You can access Power from the home screen, too. But to reach the quick menu overlay to turn the PS5 off, the DualSense's PS Button has to be tapped.

Destiny 2 Update 3.0.0.2 Patch Notes

about X hours ago from

The first new update since the release of Destiny 2's Beyond Light expansion is here, and it's a relatively minor one. While we've seen some serious issues cropping up, hotfix 3.0.0.2 resolves a variety of problems, including one that led to a gun being disabled.

Part of the big 3.0 update included changing fire rates on many weapons, and this update adjusts the Rose hand cannon (the one tied to the Exotic hand cannon Lumina) to have its intended 140 RPM firing rate. It had previously been set to 150 RPM, leading to the gun being temporarily disabled. Meanwhile, the Exotic grenade launcher Witherhoard remains disabled following this update.

For Xbox One and Series X/S players, the update addresses a crash when interacting with the Vault at the Tower, so you should have no need to fear diving into your library of items. Across all platforms, there are also unspecified backend changes related to stability.

New Super Mario Bros. 35 Update And Event Now Live

about X hours ago from

Nintendo has kicked off a new limited-time Special Battle in Super Mario Bros. 35. This event runs through Sunday, November 15, and like previous Special Battles, it limits the stage rotation to only a specific handful of courses: in this case, Worlds 5-1 to 6-4.

Alongside the new Special Battle event, Nintendo has also rolled out another update for Super Mario Bros. 35. The Ver. 1.0.2 patch primarily resolves a handful of issues, including one that prevented players from throwing fireballs while underwater in certain situations, and another that let players open courses they hadn't yet unlocked. You can see the full patch notes below.

It’s time for another Limited Course Special Battle in #SuperMarioBros35! This time, only World 5-1 to World 6-4 will appear! pic.twitter.com/jq0LCTE28Q

Demon's Souls: Best Souls Farming Spot For Early Game

about X hours ago from

The Demon's Souls remake is now available exclusively for PS5, and like the original and the Dark Souls series, the titular souls are of huge importance to your progression. You use these not only for currency but also to level up your character, and it can be difficult to collect enough to make a real difference if you don't know where to look. That's where we come in! We know the ideal spot to gather an easy 4,500 souls, which is enough to buy plenty of items, weapon improvements, or make several upgrades to your statistics.

For this method, head to the Shrine of Storms from the Nexus and work your way through until you reach the Ritual Path Archstone. From there, proceed forward until you can drop down, then go through the tunnel you find and use arrows to shoot the Reaper. This will kill all the other enemies around it, giving you a healthy bounty of souls in very little time.

When doing this, you need to make sure you aren't surrounded by the apparitions in this area. They can close in and get on either side of you, and you must be precise with your Heavy Arrow shots to take down the Reaper quickly.

Lego's Biggest Set Ever Arrives On Black Friday

about X hours ago from

Many of us have had an unexpected amount of time on our hands this year, and it's a situation that might not be changing any time soon. Luckily, Lego is here to keep our brains and hands occupied, with the upcoming release of its biggest ever set--the Lego Roman Colosseum.

The Roman Colosseum is made up of a staggering 9,036 pieces, which is considerably more than the previously biggest set, the 7,541-piece Millennium Falcon. This latest set will be available on November 27, which is Black Friday. It will set you back $550, and while that's obviously a lot of money, it's actually $150 cheaper than the Falcon set.

The Roman Colosseum set includes many real life details from one of the world's most famous landmarks. These include a recreation of the three distinct stories from the Colosseum, the columns of each story, the "ribs" of the spectator stand, and a variety of contrasting colors to show the aging of this nearly-2000 year old building. It sits on an oval base, ensuring that builders can display any side of the Colosseum. Check it out below:

Destiny 2: Where Is Xur This Week? Exotic Items / Location Guide (Nov. 13-17)

Destiny 2's new expansion, Beyond Light, has arrived, bringing new Exotics, gear, and story to the game, along with a lot of other changes. But Xur's arrival with a bag of Exotics hasn't changed--he's back in the solar system this weekend. Head to the Tower, to the Hangar area, to find Xur this week. For his weapon, Xur is offering Lord of Wolves. Hunters can pick up the Raiden Flux chest armor; for Titans, there's the Aeon Safe gauntlets; and for Warlocks, Xur has the Chromatic Fire chest armor.

Spawn in at the Tower Courtyard transmat location and turn left to head toward the Hangar. At the bottom of the stairs, turn left again and head up the stairs near the edge of the area, at the north end. You'll find Xur on a catwalk looking out over the city.
