Xbox customers get to play for a weekend

We’ve known for a few weeks that Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare’s upcoming multiplayer beta would be available early on PlayStation 4, and now we know how early: Publisher Activision announced today that the beta won’t launch on Xbox One until a week after it goes live on PS4.

The Infinite Warfare beta will debut Friday, Oct. 14, on PS4 at 10 a.m. PT. Exactly one week later, at 10 a.m. on Friday, Oct. 21, Xbox One players will be able to jump into the fray. Developer Infinity Ward will conclude beta testing at 10 a.m. on Monday, Oct. 24, which means that PS4 customers will get 10 days with the beta while Xbox One owners will only get three.

Map of Kickstarters shows how crowdfunding and creation is localized throughout the US

If Kickstarter is a bellwether for creativity and innovation, then this is a very telling dataset

A new map showing the distribution of Kickstarter crowdfunding successes throughout the United States shows a very interesting distribution. It highlights concentrations of creatives and budding entrepreneurs, and points out the outsized influence the platform has in smaller communities. Made in partnership with the data essayists at Polygraph, it’s also highly interactive.

Just one year ago Kickstarter subtly changed its focus from a fully for-profit, private company to something called a public benefit corporation. Much of that change involved devoting resources to local institutions around its New York headquarters. But it also had a lot to do with spreading the kind of opportunity, innovation and ideals that Kickstarter hopes to promote.

Players won’t be stranded anymore

The latest patch for No Man’s Sky includes a host of fixes for bugs both innocuous and severe, developer Hello Games announced today.

Hello Games released the update, which brings No Man’s Sky to version 1.09, earlier this week for both the PlayStation 4 and Windows PC versions of the game. If you check the update history on PS4, all it says is "bug fixes," but the studio posted full patch notes today.

And Pokémon Go Plus gets a boost too

Pokémon Go versions 1.9.0 and 0.39.0, respectively, are rolling out right now to iOS and Android devices, and the update is mainly focused around the new Pokémon Go Plus peripheral. But those who don’t own the hard-to-find dongle will also benefit from the tweaks, including the return of the capture location feature.

Patch notes are found on the mobile game’s Facebook page, detailing the two primary changes coming to the game. Most exciting of these is the ability to see where your Pokémon were caught. This information will be contained on a Pokémon’s profile screen, although some players have already noted that it’s not the most accurate functionality yet.

Watch episode three right here

The third episode of Pokémon Generations is now live on YouTube, and this installment captures an experience every Pokémon trainer dreams of: toppling the Elite Four. This edition stars Blue, every player's rival in the first generation of Pokémon games, as he takes on the Kanto Region's greatest trainers.

Blue — you may know him as Gary Oak, the entitled grandson of Professor Oak — enters the hall with an overwhelming confidence, making waste of the Elite Four's core members with ease. It's when he goes up against the final member Lance that Blue finds himself with an even match, but even that fight ends swiftly.

No Man’s Sky mod for Doom is the crossover you never knew you wanted

Now the Doomguy gets to visit the center of the universe

Twenty-three years since launch, Doom remains a popular breeding ground for modders to execute their craftiest, quirkiest ideas. Doom mods may have just reached their cultural apex with the release of "No Guy’s Sky," a take on No Man's Sky that combines randomly generated planetary features with classic Doom gunplay and a healthy sense of humor.

Watch above as the Doomguy boldly goes where no man has gone before ("apart from the natives ... and they don’t have a flag," the introductory text adds), landing on a planet where Doom-style monsters roam free. Some of these boast the faces of astrophysicst Neil DeGrasse Tyson and No Man’s Sky creator Sean Murray, which may encourage or discourage players from pacifistic play.

Report: Paper Mario: Color Splash leaks in full two weeks ahead of release

It’s no longer available, though

Nintendo’s upcoming Paper Mario game for the Wii U, Paper Mario: Color Splash, unlocked last night in full for anyone who had a digital version of the game pre-loaded, according to multiple tweets.

Multiple Wii U owners took to Twitter to show off different screens from the game as soon as the game became available late last night and early this morning. Most of the people who have begun tweeting about having the game aren’t posting many details or images out of fear of spoiling it for those that weren’t able to unlock the full version early. Different screenshots from the game have begun to appear on NeoGAF, however, for those interested.

Millionaire revealed as backer for pro-Trump 'shitposting' group

Oculus founder Palmer Luckey has secretly been spending some of his Facebook millions on funding an unofficial Donald Trump supporters group that "shitposts" anti-Hillary Clinton memes and images.

In a report tonight on The Daily Beast, 24-year-old Luckey is revealed as a financial backer for Nimble America, an organization that promotes Trump in the forthcoming Presidential election through online and real world advertising and viral posts. Nimble America's front page features a story about rapists operating in "criminal gangs" along the Mexico border, echoing some of Trump's most controversial claims.
