Dr. DisRespect’s house reportedly shot at during stream, authorities investigating

Local authorities in a Californian suburb are investigating reports of a shooting at a residence that belongs to someone matching Twitch streamer Dr. DisRespect’s description.

Guy “Dr. DisRespect” Beahm first reported that someone fired a shot at his house during a livestream on Tuesday. Beahm stepped away from his computer and returned a few seconds later announcing the incident, adding that he was ending the stream early to be with his family.

Here’s how the mystery box works in Call of Duty’s Blackout mode

Call of Duty: Black Ops 4’s Blackout mode has barely been in beta for a day, and we’re already unraveling a few of its mysteries. While there’s plenty to like about the marriage of Call of Duty and battle royale on the surface, it’s the stranger Call of Duty mechanics that make up Blackout mode’s best surprises — for instance, when a piece of Call of Duty’s popular Zombies mode makes its way into Blackout.

If you aren’t sure what I’m talking about, even though you’ve played the beta, don’t worry; it’s easy to miss. But, nestled into the standard battle royale mechanics are a few zombies that might surprise you. If you make it past. them, however, you can find a mystery box full of rewards. So, here’s everything you need to know to about Blackout mode’s mystery boxes.

Danganronpa and Zero Escape creators join forces, launching new, super-team studio

Chances are if you’ve played the Zero Escape games — a trilogy that combines visual novel elements with complex puzzle-solving, all wrapped up in a mind-bending story full of death and murder — you’re also a fan of the similarly blood-splattered, dialogue-oriented Danganronpa franchise.

It’s only fitting that their creators, Kazutaka Kodaka and Kotaro Uchikoshi (of Danganronpa and Zero Escape, respectively) have joined up to form their own indie studio. Too Kyo Games was revealed as part of a Famitsu Magazine livestream earlier today, during which the seven-member team introduced what it currently has in production.

The Last Remnant comes to PlayStation, only 10 years late

The Last Remnant comes to PlayStation, only 10 years late

Square Enix promised that The Last Remnant, a role-playing game that launched in 2008 on Xbox 360, followed by a 2009 Windows PC launch, would one day come to PlayStation 3. That never happened, to RPG lovers’ disappointment. But the developer clearly didn’t forget, because a remastered version of the unique title is now heading to PlayStation 4.

The Last Remnant Remastered, as seen in the teaser above, benefits from 10 years of graphical and engine upgrades. The look may have been tweaked, but the story remains the same: Players fight to save their country from years of war, all based on the collection of mysterious runes called remnants. Despite coming straight from the Final Fantasy house, there’s not many similarities here — The Last Remnant is set in a bleak world that’s far darker than the average Final Fantasy game.

Fortnite’s drum gun has been vaulted

Fortnite’s drum gun has been vaulted

Fortnite’s drum gun has been vaulted after months of in-game dominance. The change comes as part of patch v5.40’s content update, which is already live.

While the Fortnite team at Epic didn’t give specific reasons for its decision to vault the drum gun, the reasoning seems clear. When the popular meta began to shift away from shotguns and toward SMGs late in Season 4, the drum gun became the game’s standout weapon.

Spider-Man on the PS4 is getting a New Game Plus mode

Fans of the PlayStation 4 Spider-Man game may be sad that the experience has to end, but Insomniac Games has revealed that a New Game Plus mode is on the way in a Twitter conversation with a fan.

We don’t know exactly when it will be out or what the mode will entail, but from the sound of things it might be close to completion. Here’s the tweet in question:

Call of Duty’s battle royale mode, Blackout, is exceptional

When Activision announced that Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 would have a battle royale mode, I was supremely skeptical. At best, it sounded like an attempt to jump on the bandwagon of an already popular genre; at worst, a last-minute attempt to flesh out a game without a traditional single-player campaign. But, after just a few rounds of play, it’s clear that the team is on to something special. This new take on the battle royale genre, called Blackout, is exceptional.

The private beta for Blackout kicked off today, with access available to anyone who has pre-ordered the game on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One and anyone with a Battle.net account on Windows PC. It uses the same client as the previous multiplayer betas, which ran twice in August. It includes the ability to join in 80-player skirmishes either in solo mode, as a duo, or in four-player fireteams.

Destiny 2: Forsaken’s weekly reset bug will plague players into next week

Destiny 2: Forsaken’s weekly reset bug will plague players into next week

Destiny 2: Forsaken promised a different weekly reset, but things seemed to have changed a bit since that original post. However, the semi-weekly Saturday reset was bugged this week, resetting some activities unintentionally. While Bungie originally tweeted that this was a UI issue only, the studio recently revealed that the issue is far worse and will affect play for the next week.

After further investigation, we have determined that the Gambit, Crucible, and Story Weekly Challenges did reset at 5 PM PDT Saturday instead of at the Weekly Reset. This will impact acquisition of Powerful Rewards. For updates as we investigate a fix, see https://t.co/t6ksP5BMIx https://t.co/BSrLfYcSjz

Destiny 2: Forsaken players have glitched into the Last Wish raid early

Destiny 2: Forsaken players have glitched into the Last Wish raid early

The Last Wish raid in Destiny 2: Forsaken begins this Friday. However, over the weekend, players found a way into the raid’s entrance and stumbled upon a hidden chest. Inside, players were able to claim early drops from the unreleased raid, as well as poke around a bit more.

The glitch involves going under the world in Forsaken’s Dreaming City location. Players then have to do some serious jumping and hit certain loading walls just right, otherwise they’ll be killed or become stuck, needing to start over again. But players who’ve managed to push their way through have essentially confused the game, making it believe that the players have loaded into the Last Wish raid.
