  1. Activision appears to have sent out a promotional email regarding whats to come with Season 3 earlier than expected, as the new email gives fans a first look at Alex in game. The email says “worlds collide” in the new Season. The email also suggests that there will be new content in Special Ops, after the last season didn’t feature new content. Season 3 for Modern Warfare and Warzone goes live on April 8. Stay tuned. The post Promotional email gives first look at Season 3 in Modern Warfare and Warzone appeared first on Charlie INTEL.

  2. For nearly 24 years, Super Mario 64 has had a strange-looking smoke effect whenever Mario's pants caught fire, which is the kind of thing we've long attributed to it being a launch title from a team that had never made a 3D game before. As it turns out, though, the smoke was actually the result of a mistake in the coding--and it's now been fixed by modders. A patch to repair the smoke has appeared on Romhacking.net, and has been brought to wider attention by Twitter user Ryan Bloom, who posted a side-by-side comparison of what the smoke is meant to look like. As you can see, it looks a lot more like smoke after a fairly simple code fix. On line 47 under /actors/burn_smoke/model.inc.c, a piece of code that was meant to read "G_IM_FMT_IA" was instead written as "G_IM_FMT_RGBA"--meaning that the texture was compiled in the wrong format. Of course, at this point, we're pretty used to the old texture, and seeing the game updated with new smoke feels strange, even if it was the artist's original intention. Super Mario 64 is reportedly getting a remaster in 2020, although Nintendo has not yet made this official, so take that news with a grain of salt for now. There's also a new animated Super Mario movie in development at Illumination, the company behind Despicable Me. View the full article
  3. The Bunny Day egg hunt is still underway in Animal Crossing: New Horizons, but another event is also set to take place in the game later this week. On Saturday, April 11, New Horizons will hold its first Fishing Tourney. The Fishing Tourney has been a regular recurring event in Animal Crossing since the series' debut. It remains to be seen how the event plays out in New Horizons, but in previous games, you would compete with your villagers to catch the biggest fish within a set window of time; if you scored the largest catch, you'd take home a trophy and a special prize. As previously mentioned, the Bunny Day event is also going on now in New Horizons. Through Bunny Day itself (April 12), you'll be able to find different types of eggs around your island, which can be used to craft limited-time Bunny Day furniture. These eggs can be harvested from trees, stones, and even reeled in from the river and ocean, which has annoyed many players given how prevalent the eggs have been.

  4. In the grand tradition of people modding their favourite video games to be played with the most wildly inappropriate controller imaginable, one plucky gent is currently sprinting and squatting his way through Dark Souls 3 using Nintendo's Ring Fit Adventure peripheral. From Software's notoriously challenging Dark Souls series has long been a favourite for atypical controller larks, of course; we've seen Dark Souls completed using a bongo controller, its sequel bested using a guitar controller, and part 3 has ushered in attempts with two dance mat, a Wii steering wheel, even a bunch of actual bananas. As it happens, those latter three efforts were all the work of just one man - modder SuperLouis64, previously known as A Twerking Yoshi - and now he's at it again, this combining Dark Souls 3 with Ring Fit Adventure's pleasingly squeezable controller in order to maintain his daily exercise regimen in these housebound times.

  5. After planning to move all of its in-person matches online due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, the competitive Call of Duty League esports competition is finally returning this weekend. The 2020 Call of Duty League season will continue on Friday, April 10 at 1 PM PT / 4 PM ET / 8 PM GMT. The broadcast will go live on the company's official YouTube channel, with the format pivoting to "a fully online production" with this new style "follow[ing] the original tournament structure," according to a press release. You can check the image below to see the home series schedule. The CDL also shared an updated 2020 schedule for the first games taking place this weekend.

  6. Capcom's reimagining of Resident Evil 3 has only been out a couple of days now, but the company already wants to know if fans want more remakes in its vein. A new survey aimed at the Asian market that ends May 31 includes two relevant questions: While it's not necessarily clear which Resident Evil game Capcom would remake next, there are two likely candidates. 2000's Code: Veronica continues the story of sibling protagonists Claire and Chris Redfield, and is generally considered the true sequel to Resident Evil 2. Though 2005's Resident Evil 4 stars Leon, another character from RE2, it took the series in a completely different direction, away from the evil Umbrella Corporation. Though both games have received HD re-releases over the years, the remakes of 2 and 3 draw heavy inspiration in their style and control schemes from RE4. By contrast, Code: Veronica is a half-step between the fixed camera angles and tank controls of the series' early entries towards its more modern formula, which makes it feel dated, even though it and RE4 were released in the same console generation. It's unclear whether or not a hypothetical Resident Evil 8 would follow more in the mold of the stripped-back first-person approach of Resident Evil 7 or hew toward the third-person action of the RE3 remake, which we weren't fully impressed with. In our review, critic Alessandro Fillari called it disappointing. Continue Reading at GameSpotView the full article
  7. The gaming industry has been moving toward a digital future for years now, but our current worldwide predicament has made digital games more vital. With shops closed and retailers like Amazon understandably prioritizing essential goods during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, digital is the way to go right now. Thankfully, the infrastructure is already set up for digital PS4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC games, so everything you could buy in store is available with the press of the button from the comfort of your couch. Even better? There are tons of great deals this week on digital games across all platforms, including discounts on brand-new releases like Doom Eternal and Resident Evil 3 Remake. All three console digital storefronts--PlayStation Store, Xbox Store, and Nintendo Eshop--are hosting massive spring sales, discounting hundreds of incredible games. PC users can save at multiple storefronts, including the Epic Games Store and Fanatical, which offers Steam codes. We've collected all of the best digital game deals on PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC in one place.

  8. Activision has confirmed that they are investigating multiple server related issues for some users who are having troubles connecting to their games. The support status website has updated to reflect that as of April 5 at 9PM PT, they are investigating server related issues for multiple Call of Duty games and Crash Bandicoot titles. They have confirmed on their website that they are aware of the issue on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC for Black Ops 4, Modern Warfare, Warzone, Infinite Warfare, Modern Warfare Remastered, and WWII. We will update this we get more information. The post Multiple Call of Duty games experiencing server issues – Activision investigating appeared first on Charlie INTEL. View the full article
  9. It's the season of spring sales--many storefronts are discounting fantastic games right now across PS4, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, and PC. If you're looking for discounts on Steam games, Fanatical just kicked off another big sale in time for Easter, marking down the prices on thousands of games. Fanatical's Easter sale includes the newly released Resident Evil 3 Remake, which follows S.T.A.R.S. agent Jill Valentine as she tries to escape Raccoon City's outbreak while evading the monstrous Nemesis. Capcom's latest remake is down to $46.79 as part of the sale, the best deal yet on this new release. If you're looking for a way to play board games online with friends while we're all social distancing, Tabletop Simulator is a fantastic solution. The Steam game allows you to play and create digital versions of board games on PC, and there are thousands of fantastic mods for many of the best board games. Tabletop Simulator is 50% off, with a single copy selling for $10 and the four-pack selling for $30. If you plan to play with others, the four-pack is absolutely worth snagging at this price.

  10. The Call of Duty League has shifted away from live events (as has the majority of the world) as a consequence of the COVID-19 pandemic. However, the competitive league is planning to carry on, but with a focus and shift toward a completely online production. Players can tune in to watch all the action beginning April 10 at https://www.youtube.com/CODLeague. Esports events draw huge crowds and ignite local gaming communities, so we'll have to see how Call of Duty League (and many other big esports-oriented titles) adapts to our rapidly changing world..

  11. Activision Blizzard Esports has announced an updated 2020 schedule for the Call of Duty League, after announcing a few weeks back that all live in-person Home Series events will be canceled. The new schedule shifts the Call of Duty League to an online league. The entire online league will be broadcasted to fans on the Call of Duty League YouTube Channel. “I spent many years at the NFL, and saw firsthand how sports can lift the human spirit,” said commissioner Johanna Faries in a statement. “No one wants to be in this situation, but we are, and we’re thankful that Call of Duty League can forge ahead and deliver live competition to fans when it’s probably needed most.” The structure for the league remains the same, as each Home Series online event will feature eight teams competing from Friday through Sunday. The season returns starting on April 10 with the Dallas Home Series. Eight teams will be competing Friday through Sunday as the fight to reach the top of the CDL Standings continues. Here’s is the new 2020 Season schedule: April 10 – 12: Dallas Home Series April 24 – 26: Chicago Home Series May 8 – 10: Florida Home Series May 22 – 24: Seattle Home Series June 5 – 7: Minnesota Home Series June 19 – 21: Paris Home Series July 10 – 12: New York Home Series July 17 – 19: London Home Series July 24 – 26: Toronto Home Series The Call of Duty League also says the spent extensive time testing how the league will work online to ensure fair competition for all players and teams. In this QA, the company says that they have worked closely with studios and internal technology teams to test and establish new dedicated servers for Call of Duty League matches. Our partners at the studios have worked tirelessly with our internal technology teams to establish and test new dedicated servers around the country that will allow us to create the fairest environment possible for Call of Duty League matches. We have been testing these servers in collaboration with our players as we continue to optimize our solution and minimize latency for the different match variations we may see in the Home Series tournament format. We have been testing for weeks and each day we get more data and opportunities to better the product. It’s a learning experience. We know online match play won’t be perfect, but we are doing everything in our power to make the best competitive environment we can. You can read the full Q&A here to learn about how they are adapting the CDL to an online format.

  12. Being stuck at home can suck, but the Switch has a lot of great games that can keep you busy. Some of these games work particularly well with a GameCube-style pad--like Super Smash Bros. Ultimate and Animal Crossing: New Horizons--and if you're a fan of the classic controller then Amazon has a great deal on the Fight Pad Pro for $20 or less. PDP's wired Fight Pad Pro controllers feature the designs of different Smash Bros. Ultimate characters, and four of them are on sale right now. This includes versions for Princess Peach, Luigi, and Link for $20 as well as a Mario design for $18.79. Each controller is functionally identical apart from the colours and emblem.

  13. If you've ever wanted to feel all those calories your Chosen Undead burns while they roll their way through those tricky Dark Souls boss-fights, you might soon have the chance. Super Louis 64, a streamer known for crafting or modding unusual controllers, has modified Ring Fit Adventure's Ring-Con to work on PC, and he posted several clips of himself using it to play Dark Souls 3. According to his tweet thread, the mod checks whether or not the Joy-Con strapped to your leg is in motion--you can only use the left thumbstick to move when you exceed its threshold. You also have to perform a full squat to heal with your Estus Flask. In a future update, Louis says that he plans to use the Joy-Con's D-pad to adjust that threshold, to avoid fatigue issues. While the mod clearly works, Louis says he needs to make a few user-friendly modifications before he makes it available for public consumption. This isn't the first time that the streamer has used an unusual controller to try to beat Dark Souls 3. According to his website, he's beaten the game with a Dance Dance Revolution dance pad, a fishing rod, a DJ Hero turntable, and many, many more. For example, his YouTube channel has clips of him beating one of the game's hardest bosses with the bongos from the GameCube game Donkey Kong: Jungle Beat.

  14. The third-person cover-based shooter Gears 5 will hold a free trial period across PC and Xbox One not long after developer The Coalition introduced a new update to the game. Gears 5's free play period runs from April 6-12 on PC (both Steam and Windows 10) and Xbox One for subscribers of either Xbox Live Gold or Game Pass Ultimate. Having an active membership with either subscription is the only requirement to play Gears 5 for free. Also available for free is Dave Batista's old WWE finisher, which can be acquired simply by playing Gears 5 now through April 20. And if that's not enough, you can also get a Batista skin for use in-game. Continue Reading at GameSpotView the full article
  15. Post-apocalyptic survival MMO Last Oasis is finally back online after a week of downtime following its extremely rocky Steam early access launch back in March - and developer Donkey Crew has shared a few words on what, exactly, went wrong. Last Oasis, if you're unfamiliar, casts players as human survivors, doomed to endlessly roam an Earth that no longer rotates in order to stay ahead of the scorching sun. It's a wonderfully appealing premise, and one that plenty of players were eager to experience for themselves when Lost Oasis entered early access on 26th March. Sadly, however, Last Oasis' launch was plagued by server issues, with severe wait times and server crashes leaving many that purchased the game simply unable play. After a few days with no improvement, Donkey Crew elected to take its servers offline for a week to get to the bottom of things. Read more View the full article
  16. A brand-new Inside Xbox livestream is scheduled to air on Tuesday, April 7. While it won't have any new details about the Xbox Series X, Xbox confirmed that the broadcast will cover a ton of games--like Gears Tactics and Sea of Thieves--as well as the tech specifications for its next-gen console. The broadcast will go live tomorrow at 2 PM PT / 5 PM ET / 9 PM GMT. You can expect Xbox to cover a slew of games, present some surprises from its [email protected] and Xbox Game Pass banners, and more. Further, Jason Ronald, Xbox Series X's director of program management, will "discuss the recently revealed technical specifications and what they mean for gamers." The livestream is expected to last approximately 30 minutes or so and can be watched on Facebook, Mixer, Twitch, Twitter, and YouTube. You can also check it out below.

  17. Grand Theft Auto Online, the multiplayer component of GTA 5, is bringing back one of its Halloween treats for a limited time. The Alien Survival Series and Peyote plants from the Halloween 2019 event are both back through April 13. Alien Survival ran for a limited time last year, consisting of seven Survival modes scattered around the map featuring armed aliens. Peyote plants are similarly bizarre, putting you into a hallucination in which you wake up as one of several animals--including a couple of secret ones like Bigfoot. You can snap out of the hallucination at any time and wake up in a hospital with awarded RP. This is the first time either has reappeared in the game since last Halloween, though Rockstar does seem to like occasionally embracing its wacky side.

  18. If you missed the mafioso open-world game Mafia 2 when it first came out in 2010, you might soon be able to play it on current-gen consoles for the first time. As first spotted by Nibel, entries related to the Mafia series have appeared on the Taiwan Digital Game Rating Committee site, including definitive editions for Mafia 2 and 3, and a complete edition for Mafia 3. These new releases would be on PS4, Xbox One, and PC. Mafia 3, the latest entry in the series, first came out in 2016 to a somewhat-muted reception. While reviewers praised its storytelling--especially its protagonist, the black Vietnam vet Lincoln Clay, who wages a war against the Italian mob depicted in the first two games--others panned it for its simplistic mission structures and panoply of bugs. In our review, critic Scott Butterworth called it "frustratingly repetitive." According to Take-Two's latest earnings report, the developer behind Mafia 3--Hangar 13--is working on an unannounced game. While it could be a sequel to the series, given the fact that Mafia 3 shipped a record-breaking number of units, it's not at all clear as of yet. The CEO of Take-Two expressed disappointment in the game's review scores, and there were some layoffs at Hanger 13 following the game's release. View the full article
  19. Click here to watch embedded media Gamers looking for an irreverent and fun open-world experience can look forward to Saints Row: The Third Remastered on May 22 (PS4, Xbox One, and PC) – nine years after the original came out on last-gen consoles. The Remaster naturally upgrades the look of the entire title to current-gen standards, but it also goes a step further to deliver that same touch (courtesy of developer Sperasoft) to all of the game's extra content. This means Remastered contains all of the title's expansion packs as well as other pieces of DLC. For more on the game, check out our review of the original. View the full article
  20. The Final Fantasy 7 Remake is just days away, finally delivering the first part of a remaster that fans have been anticipating for years. Square Enix previously boasted that it's as long as other Final Fantasy games, but that allows for a wide degree of variance. So how many hours can you expect it to last? Based on our experience, the Final Fantasy 7 Remake will take roughly 40 hours to beat if you play it at a regular pace with some side-missions. Completing all of the side missions and end-game content will make the experience longer, at approximately 45 hours. Reviews have started to come in for the FF7 Remake, and they appear largely positive. GameSpot's FF7 Remake review from Tamoor Hussain was positively glowing, awarding it a rare 10/10--a score shared with only a handful of games throughout the site's history.

  21. The Final Fantasy 7 Remake is just days away now, and if you plan to get it digitally through the PlayStation Store you can start downloading the game now. Square Enix announced that pre-loading is now available, letting you have it all ready to go in time for launch day. Pre-ordering digitally also nets you a PS4 theme. Digital may well be the way to go for the Final Fantasy 7 Remake, as physical copies appear to be hard to come by in some territories, in part due to supply disruptions caused by the coronavirus pandemic. At the same time, Sony has started to slow download speeds to help ease demand and increase reliability. With four days to go until launch you should have plenty of time to complete the 85 GB download. Reviews for the Final Fantasy 7 Remake have come in and they're largely positive. GameSpot's Final Fantasy 7 Remake review has joined the rare company of 10/10s. Continue Reading at GameSpotView the full article
  22. With its start as a competitor to Rockstar Games' Grand Theft Auto, the Saints Row series eventually found its identity as a self-aware and more humorous take on the AAA open-world game. While Saints Row IV saw the game at its most absurd, injecting superhuman powers and a plot involving alien invaders, the third game balanced its over-the-top and zany action with a more grounded narrative about the titular gang becoming a franchise, and was all the weirder for it. And now, Volition and Deep Silver are revisiting Saints Row: The Third for a new remaster on PC, PS4, and Xbox One. Set for release on May 22, Saints Row: The Third Remastered will have you re-establish your gang as the world's top organization by taking on many missions and activities with an arsenal of firearms, bizarre vehicles, and obscenely-shaped melee weapons. The Remastered edition is the complete version of Saints Row: The Third, featuring all of the game's DLC and expansions in a single package. Along with that, the remaster updates the game's visuals with a new lighting engine and completely reworked textures. The original game was a mash-up of off-the-wall humor and pop-culture references, which pushed the bounds of what the developers call "exagereal"--essentially the middle ground between grounded and exaggerated realities. Prior to its announcement, publisher Deep Silver/Koch Media and developer Volition showed us an early look at the game in action, while also going into detail about the making of this remaster. According to the developers, which includes Volition and Sperasoft (the studio behind the port), they chose to remaster the third game in the series, as opposed to the first two games, because Saints Row: The Third remains a popular game, and was the one that helped define the series.

  23. Though spring is here, many of us are spending a lot of time in our homes practicing social distancing. But while we may not be able to enjoy the pleasant weather as much as we'd like, digital storefronts and retailers are still celebrating the arrival of the new season with spring game sales. GameStop is the latest retailer to launch its Spring Sale, which offers great discounts on PS4, Xbox One, and Switch games. GameStop's Spring Sale runs until April 11, but it's possible some of the really great deals will sell out early. Some of the best deals in GameStop's Spring Sale are on Nintendo Switch games. First-party titles including The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, and Splatoon 2 are on sale for $40 each. While we saw Breath of the Wild cheaper than $40 on Black Friday, it's rarely available for under $50. Splatoon 2 and Tropical Freeze discounts are more rare, with the former being one of the best multiplayer games on Switch and the latter standing as one of the best side-scrollers on Switch. More Spring Sales Continue Reading at GameSpotView the full article
  24. The Animal Crossing: New Horizons community has been up to its stylish haircuts in eggs over the last week, and a new update to the game calms it down with the egg output. Though the English patch notes for version 1.1.4 haven't been released, the Japanese update says it adjusts Bunny Day egg drop rates, and we can't imagine that means there will be more eggs. Siliconera reports that the new egg rate will go into effect until April 11. Then on Bunny Day (aka Easter) proper, April 12, eggs will become easier to find for just one day. Though you may already have all the eggs you need, it does make sense for them to become more commonplace on the holiday itself. During the Bunny Day festivities, you can find eggs scattered throughout the island in all the areas you would usually farm for regular resources. An egg might pop out of the water on your fishing line, for example, or you could dig one up instead of a fossil. Then you can use them to craft special holiday-themed items. But with the egg rate so high, players have been a little annoyed. Continue Reading at GameSpotView the full article
  25. Final Fantasy 7 is one of the most beloved games in Square Enix's catalog, and this week it finally gets its long-awaited remake. The Final Fantasy 7 Remake is just the first part of the story, with more entries to come in the future. That has left some wondering if this entry would feel like a complete package, and the answer from critics is in. The consensus is a resounding yes. Critics agree that despite the limited scope, FF7 Remake is a complete work in its own right and a loving tribute to the classic game. GameSpot's Final Fantasy 7 Remake Review concludes that this entry takes what was great about the original and makes it even better. As a result, it has become the latest of only a handful of games to earn a 10/10 from GameSpot. "The majority of the game is new material, lovingly introduced to further detail a picture that had been painted in broad strokes," Tamoor Hussain wrote. "This isn't a game that panders to fans, as newcomers can also enjoy the majesty of Midgar and learn to love characters for the first time, all while playing a mechanically dense and rewarding role-playing game. Even if it's just a piece of the original Final Fantasy VII, this remake takes one of the most beloved games of all time and elevates it higher." Continue Reading at GameSpotView the full article
