Porting Xbox Exclusives to Nintendo Switch Is Probably Short-lived

Nintendo and Xbox have a pretty good relationship – much better than Xbox’s relationship with Sony, anyway. That relationship is why some Microsoft exclusives, like Ori and the Will of the Wisps launched on Switch. Porting Xbox games over to the Nintendo Switch seems like an awesome idea, especially since Nintendo doesn’t seem keen on allowing game streaming to happen anytime soon. But, as it turns out, there might not be any more Xbox Exclusives coming to Nintendo unless the relationship between the two companies blossoms into a full-blown love affair. This news comes directly from the mouth of Xbox Head, Phil Spencer in an interview with Kotaku. While the previous Xbox-to-Switch ports have been loved and fairly successful, Spencer says that the approach to these ports “doesn’t feel sustainable.” And, it won’t be sustainable, apparently, until Nintendo and Microsoft are able to deliver a full Xbox ecosystem in total partnership. “In order to really support it, I would want a full Xbox ecosystem somewhere. And that probably means things like Live and Game Pass and...

COD Warzone Could Soon Compete With Fortnite On Mobile

Activision took a deep step into the battle royale genre when it launched Call of Duty: Warzone, and the game was met with a hell of a lot more success than the last COD battle royal saw. Within weeks the number of players skyrocketed, and Warzone was competing with games like Fortnite, PUBG, and even Apex Legends. Warzone is lacking one big thing, though, and that’s a port for mobile devices, but all of that could change very soon, and we now have proof that Activision is – at the very least – taking the idea into consideration. A new job listing that has since been removed, appeared on Activision’s website. The job listing said it was looking for someone to work on “WZM” – which is easy to assume is an abbreviation for Warzone Mobile – who would “harvest, adapt, and deliver the essential features from Warzone console and PC into their best mobile instantiation.” This person would also “serve as the primary point of contact on Warzone Mobile leadership team for clarity and...

Hellraid Might Have Been Cancelled, But You’ll Still Be Able to Play It

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YKgyWjjXikM Dying Light 2 might be well into the development phase despite being delayed, but Techland is still giving Dying Light one a little bit of action. That action comes in the form of the Hellraid DLC, and while we don’t have a specific release date for it yet outside of “summer 2020”, we do have a trailer (seen above) and know a little bit about it. The Hellraid DLC is actually based on the now-cancelled standalone game that was going to go by the same name. That was supposed to be a first-person fantasy slasher, but now it’s going to be integrated into Dying Light, something that should help ease the delay pain as Techland works to make Dying Light 2 even better. For now, we know that the Hellraid DLC will expand Dying Light with a new dungeon map that’s full of new enemies. There will also be a plethora of brand-new weapons, and you’ll be able to play alone or in a co-op mode with your buddies.  I feel like I should mention that...

Fallout 76’s Latest Hotfix Teaches NPC’s To Have Some Morals

When the Fallout 76 Wastelander’s Expansion launched, it came with some new (and much-needed) NPCs, but it also came with a weird bug that allowed NPCs to loot your corpse and steal whatever weapon you were using when you met your untimely demise.  This bug, as it’s being called, was discovered by players mid-event who would respawn just to find their weapon and all its ammo nowhere to be found… until they saw the NPC around the corner using their weapon. Honestly, it feels like this was a feature built into the Wastelanders expansion to make it a little more interesting, and it really did just that. It might be troubling for some, leading folks to complain that they don’t want to use their favorite weapon in events, but it’s also a bit amusing and – to be honest – a little more lifelike for a post-apocalyptic survival scenario. Sure, it sucks to lose a legendary weapon that you spent hours grinding just to get it, but hey, this is the end of the world...

A New Single Player Campaign Aims to Make Artifact Relevant

After a less-than-stellar launch, Valve slapped Artifact back on the development board and tried to figure out just how it could be better. Well, a new announcement has been made, and it looks like this time there will be a single-player campaign. The game could have an impressive storyline, especially when the Dota universe is filled with different worlds that’s filled with different characters - each one of them with they’re unique backstory. In the statement, Valve said, “We are doubling down on that effort through a single-player campaign which will both teach new players the game and continue the story that began with a Call To arms. Tying into our progressions systems, we want people to feel rewarded no matter which way they choose to play the game, whether it be in competitive play or the campaign.” Valve hasn’t released any details on what direction the game will go or how the single-player campaign will go. There is a lot of pressure, especially after multiplayer failure. We do, however, know that There will...

The Lenovo Y740S is Only a Gaming Laptop When You Want it To Be

Before we jump into the latest Lenovo “gaming” laptop, let’s talk about the external GPU.Thunderbolt 3 connections allow the use of external peripherals that wouldn't work via the normal USB connection or the wouldn't work as fast, anyway.

The problem with this device is that the external GPU can be costly and that it redues...

Red Dead Online Legendary Bounty 8, Free Money, and Patch 1.14

Legendary Bounty. No. 8 means Etta Doyle must be captured alive to receive any kind of reward, so if you’re the player who shoots first and asks questions later, try to pay more attention and don’t kill the target. She and her gang are robbing people who perform on stages, so Leviticus Cornwall will set a trap-stage which will lure her into robbing again, when she shows up, you take the lead and capture her. It sounds pretty easy, but don't get too excited just yet -- there's always a chance that something will happen to make things that much more difficult. Alongside the new bounty, everyone who logs in until November 11st will get a treasure map and $100. This is also the last week when you take place in the “Free of the Dark Showdown” event.

These powers come from the skull masks, masks which can be found...

To help make things a little easier, here are a handful of tips and tricks to help smoothen out your initial days playing Borderlands 3. Mail is Important! Before jumping into the game, let's talk about the mail that you will receive after completing tasks. To access your inbox, you must enter the ESC menu then the "Social" tab to read, and most importantly claim your rewards: cosmetics and guns - lots of guns. Some Quests are Worth Doing Later.
