Microsoft Flight Simulator Update Cuts Its 170 GB Base Game Size in Half

Microsoft Flight Simulator Update Cuts Its 170 GB Base Game Size in Half

Microsoft Flight Simulator's Update 1.16.2.0 not only brings with it a ton of fixes, but it also cuts its base game size of 170 GB in half to 83 GB.The new update is available now, and the reduction in file size was made possible thanks to to the team performing "some optimization for the initial full download" of Microsoft Flight Simulator. [ignvideo url=”https://www.ign.com/videos/2020/08/17/microsoft-flight-simulator-review”]This is another example of developers working to make their games take up less space, and follows Fortnite's patch that made it 60GB smaller on PC and Call of Duty: Warzone's patch that reduced the file size between 10.9 GB and 14.2 GB. File size has been a big issue for some, especially those who wish to have both Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War and Modern Warfare/Warzone installed on one system. Activision even said that 500GB PS4 owners may need to "make room" if they wanted these games installed with all the modes and packs available. We recently took a look at why these video games have such huge install sizes, and it is due to a combination of factors including games getting bigger in scope, problems with hardware inefficiencies, and more.[widget path=”global/article/imagegallery” parameters=”slug=32-of-microsoft-flight-simulators-37000-airports&captions=true”]Microsoft Flight Simulator is the game that keeps on giving, even after its release when we gave it a 10/10 and called it a masterpiece. In our review, we said, "Unparalleled realism and an entire planet to explore makes Microsoft Flight Simulator a simulation like no other."[poilib element=”accentDivider”]Have a tip for us?

Biomutant's First Patch Will Address Narrator, Dialogue Pacing, Combat, and More

Biomutant's First Patch Will Address Narrator, Dialogue Pacing, Combat, and More

Biomutant developer Experiment 101 has shared details on the game's first big patch, revealing it will address the pacing of dialogues, narrator settings, combat, and much more.Announced on Biomutant's Twitter, this update will "most likely" be delivered to PC platforms first and then to consoles.[ignvideo url=”https://www.ign.com/videos/2021/05/24/biomutant-review”]As for what is in the update, it looks to include "bug fixes and changes based on community feedback.""We are working on the pacing of dialogues, narrator settings, difficulty settings, video settings like depth of field and motion blur, loot and enemy tuning as well as sound and combat," Biomutant's Tweet reads.In our review of Biomutant, we discussed some of the above issues, including that, while the narrator is "initially kind of quaint," we "found it a bit wearisome over time." "It’s not so much the narrator’s random interjections; it’s more that his regular attempts at profundity write a lot of cheques that a game that’s really just about hamsters bashing the crap out of each other with toilet brushes struggles to cash. Biomutant seems to have a lot it wants to say about the past, the future – and possibly forgiveness – but its fortune cookie wisdom feels a fraction too earnest," IGN's Luke Reilly wrote.[widget path=”global/article/imagegallery” parameters=”slug=biomutant-screenshots&captions=true”]For more on Biomutant, check out nine things you should do first and our performance review that details the problems on PS5, PS4, and Xbox consoles.[poilib element=”accentDivider”]Have a tip for us?

Mighty Ducks Producer Reveals Ideas for Mighty Ducks: Game Changers Season 2

Mighty Ducks Producer Reveals Ideas for Mighty Ducks: Game Changers Season 2

The Mighty Ducks franchise creator Steve Brill has shared his ideas for a potential season 2 for Disney+'s The Mighty Ducks: Game Changers, how many seasons the show may last, and his dream of The Mighty Ducks: The Musical. Speaking to Collider, Brill shed some light on his and the team's long-term plan for the series, which unfortunately has been altered due to the COVID-19 pandemic.[ignvideo url=”https://www.ign.com/videos/2021/02/24/the-mighty-ducks-game-changers-official-trailer-2021-emilio-estevez-lauren-graham”]"Yeah, we have a plan. We have many plans," Brill said. "As we’ve learned from this last year, you can’t make plans. I would have loved for the second season to be in Europe, playing an international tournament, but I don’t think that’s going to happen. But there are many plans. All of the characters would be back and Lauren Graham would fully be a lead figure. "To explore her character would be endlessly fun, and her with Gordon Bombay, and then each individual kid and the story of the team and what the next step would be. We’ve got it all laid out. And then, we’d also bring back people, and wrap up storylines and re-explore storylines from the movies, like I talked about with Josh and Kenan. So, we have a lot to do."As for how many seasons Brill thinks it would take to tell the story he is wanting to tell, he says that it's up to those who know TV better than he does."Josh [Goldsmith] and Cathy [Yuspaalso] come from television, so they understand what a season is. I look at it like a movie. This first season feels like Ducks 1. To me, the next season instinctively should feel like Ducks 2, which took the kids to a new environment. You have to move the characters along, as a group, into some new things, so that’s what I’m thinking about and that’s what we’re thinking of about," Brill said.[widget path=”global/article/imagegallery” parameters=”slug=disney-spotlight-june-2021&captions=true”] As for the previously mentioned musical, Brill explained that, since he couldn't "crack any stories in the 2000s' for a fourth Mighty Ducks film, he turned his focus to Broadway. "I thought about doing a Broadway musical," Brill revealed. "That was my big thought, about how fun it would be to do The Mighty Ducks: The Musical, and do a Disney Beauty and the Beast type of production with kids on ice on Broadway and with songs. If they can do Spider-Man, then you can do The Mighty…
