Deathloop Will Use PS5 DualSense Controller For Gun Jams, Haptic Feedback, And More

Deathloop, which is coming to PS5 and PC on May 21, 2021, has detailed how it will use the new PlayStation DualSense controller to heighten certain mechanics and the player’s sense of immersion. On the PlayStation Blog, Bethesda senior content manager Anne Lewis has explained how the controller will be used to make the experience special.Deathloop, which is developed by Arkane (Dishonored), will use the controller to make each weapon feel unique. Lewis describes how the PT-6 Spiker, a silenced nailgun, will let you “feel each nail fall into the magazine,” and will provide some resistance on the trigger when you fire it. Some weapons can be prone to jamming, too, meaning that the trigger won’t let you click all the way in until it’s fixed. “Your trigger button will be blocked halfway, giving you instantaneous feedback even before the animation notifies you,” Lewis writes.Haptic feedback will also allow you to feel the difference in texture of surfaces you run, slide, or climb over, and if you take a big fall, you’ll feel the thump in your hands.The controller speaker will also be used to simulate the sounds of bullets whizzing past you, as well as the voices coming from your personal radio. It’ll also play sounds from your own weapons, including the click of an empty chamber. Despite having been sold to Microsoft, Bethesda still has two PS5 exclusives on the horizon–this and Ghostwire: Tokyo. Whether these will be timed exclusives that eventually make their way to Xbox Series X/S remains to be seen.

Celebrate Thanksgiving With 17 Of The Best Feast Scenes In Film

Celebrate Thanksgiving With 17 Of The Best Feast Scenes In Film

Prepare for turkey day by tucking into 17 movies with memorable dinners. Ah, Thanksgiving. A holiday devoted to eating absolutely lavish amounts of food with friends or family (or completely by yourself this year, given the current pandemic situation). But while gorging yourself on autumnal favorites sounds like a dream in theory–and don’t get us wrong, sometimes in practice, it really, really is–it can also be an absolute nightmare. From family drama to cooking mishaps, the art of the Thanksgiving feast is a deeply precarious one where the risk sometimes greatly outweighs the reward.Thanksgiving also happens to be the odd man out in terms of winter holiday pop culture. Between Halloween and Christmas, there are movies aplenty to watch and celebrate with, but Thanksgiving has exactly two real classics: Addams Family Values and Planes Trains and Automobiles. This means you might find yourself hard pressed for entertainment to really set the mood for turkey day. So we broadened the net a little and decided to loosen up our definition of what, exactly, makes for good Thanksgiving entertainment.The answer is food, of course–and lots of it, for better or for worse.So with that in mind, we’ve rounded up some of the absolute best (or most horrific, funniest, most wholesome–you name it) feast scenes in film to represent the entire spectrum of possible Thanksgiving emotions. Absolutely dreading spending time with relatives? There’s a movie for that. Really looking to have a fantastic and cheerful time despite it all? There’s a movie for that too. Here are 17 of the best feast scenes around to really get you in the mood to chow down. 1. The Avengers Okay, so this one doesn’t exactly feature a big family dinner in the actual movie itself, but we’d be totally remiss to not include the infamous Shawarma stinger. It remains one of the funniest post-credits scenes the MCU’s ever pulled off and, hey, sometimes a family can be the vaguely antagonistic superheroes you fought off aliens with, right? 2. Texas Chainsaw Massacre Not all dinners are made equal. The infamous, horrific dinner scene is a motif that gets repeated in multiple iterations of the Texas Chainsaw franchise, but the first pulled it off the best–or worst, depending on your definition. Hopefully your real-life Thanksgiving doesn’t feel like this, but, well, if it does? Solidarity. 3. Fantastic Mr. Fox Fantastic Mr. Fox is a movie about a…

Ready Player Two Sends Roblox Players On a Virtual Treasure Hunt

Ready Player Two Sends Roblox Players On a Virtual Treasure Hunt

Ready Player One began with a virtual treasure hunt inside an online video game. It’s only appropriate, then, that the sequel, Ready Player Two, kicks off the same way. Instead of reading about characters hunting, though, you can participate, as the Ready Player Two novel is kicking off with a scavenger hunt inside the game Roblox.The Ready Player Two novel launches on November 24 in the United States and United Kingdom, and the hunt begins a week later, at 10 a.m. PST on December 1. Just like in Ready Player One, the hunt will take place across seven “experiences” inside the Roblox platform. If you win, you’ll win a collection of Ready Player Two-themed virtual goods for use inside Roblox. That’s not exactly winning a reclusive game designer’s entire fortune and game corporation, but it’ll have to do.If you’re not familiar with Roblox, that means you’re probably not a parent (and are probably old enough to read this website). Roblox isn’t a game so much as it is a platform. The free-to-play platform, which launched in 2006, lets users create games complete with in-game purchases. The platform has over 160 million active users; over half of kids in the United States play the game according to the Roblox Corporation, helped along by the COVID-19 pandemic.Continue Reading at GameSpot

A sealed copy of that game sold for $114,000, but this is a rarer, more special copy. As Heritage Auctions points out, this is a very rare copy where the word “Bros.” is formatted to the left on the box, overlapping with Mario’s glove.The $156,000 gameThis means that this copy is from the very first production run of Super Mario Bros. 3, making it exceptionally rare.

World of Warcraft: Shadowlands Is Live Now

World of Warcraft: Shadowlands Is Live Now

World of Warcraft: Shadowlands is officially live. Players queuing up for server access early should hopefully be in already and playing. The newest WoW expansion will take place in, where else, the Shadowlands with five new zones. The biggest quality of life change is a level squish that brings the max level back down to 60. Another big gameplay addition are the four “covenants” players can join in the afterlife. Each Covenant, whether it’s the Kyrian, Venthyr, Necrolord, or Night Fae, are associated with a different zone. Players will choose which one to join after hitting max level, and each of them comes with unique rewards and a Covenant-specific ability, transmogs, and more. [ignvideo url=”https://www.ign.com/videos/2020/10/29/world-of-warcraft-shadowlands-story-trailer”] WoW: Shadowlands was originally set to be released on October 27, but following feedback from players, Blizzard announced it would delay the expansion until today for additional polish. Players will have two weeks to familiarize themselves with the new content as the first Shadowlands raid, Castle Nathria, will be released on December 8. The 10 bosses comprising the raid will take “players into the heart of Sire Denathrius’ lair in Revendreth — along with the start of Shadowlands Season 1.” [widget path=”global/article/imagegallery” parameters=”albumSlug=world-of-warcraft-shadowlands-gameplay-reveal-images&captions=true”] As players explore the Shadowlands and spend time with all the new features and additions, expect more news at a free, fully digital BlizzCon slated for early next year.

The Queen's Gambit Has Broken A Viewership Record For Netflix

The Queen's Gambit Has Broken A Viewership Record For Netflix

The Queen’s Gambit hit Netflix in October, and the show has become a smash-hit, enjoying the best opening month for any scripted limited series on the service. Netflix shared in a tweet that The Queen’s Gambit was viewed by 62 million accounts in its first 28 days, a record for the service.The series, which stars Anya Taylor-Joy as a young chess superstar named Beth Harmon who battles personal demons as she climbs the ladder of international professional chess in Cold War-era America, hit the number 1 rank on Netflix in 63 countries, and ranked in the top 10 in 92.A record-setting 62 million households chose to watch The Queen’s Gambit in its first 28 days, making it Netflix’s biggest scripted limited series to date. pic.twitter.com/TVC3p4i5Bv — Netflix (@netflix) November 23, 2020It’s worth noting that Netflix changed how it measures viewer numbers in late 2019, so this technically means that 62 million accounts started The Queen’s Gambit and watched at least 2 minutes of an episode. However, the first two minutes of the show are pretty compelling, so there’s a good chance many people stuck with it.The “limited series” designation is for shows that are not designed to be an on-going narrative–while a second season can receive a follow-up season, it will usually wrap up neatly with a conclusion. Other examples of limited series on Netflix include Godless (also from The Queen’s Gambit director Scott Frank), Unbelievable, and Alias Grace.Continue Reading at GameSpot
