Uncharted Movie Gets Action-Packed “Final” Trailer

4 hours 26 minutes ago

The Uncharted movie is coming close, and Sony Pictures Entertainment has the promotional machine firing on all cylinders.

This time around, we get to see a trailer labeled “final” and it’s definitely action-packed, showcasing plenty of stunts that make the film look quite bombastic.

Of course, this includes the iconic cargo plane scene, which is basically lifted from Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception. You can watch it in a previous video that was revealed during Sony’s press conference at CES.

Check out the new video below.

The Uncharted movie will premiere in theaters on January 28, 2022, just a few days after the launch of the Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection, which will come to PS4 and PC in early 2022. You can also take a look at another recent trailer.

Ubisoft Singapore Handled Misconduct Reports Appropriately, According to Outside Investigation

4 hours 33 minutes ago

Ubisoft Singapore Investigation TAFEP

The Tripartite Alliance for Fair and Progressive Employment Practice in Singapore launched an investigation into Ubisoft Singapore last year following reports of harassment and workplace misconduct at the studio. TAFEP, which is a third-party agency, has concluded that these reports were handled appropriately by the studio, as reported by IGN

TAFEP says Ubisoft Singapore has a proper system in place to handle reports of harassment and workplace misconduct and that past reports were handled correctly. The agency also concluded that differences in pay are based on performance, in terms of experience and time at the company, rather than other biases. 

“We’ve put best practices in place at Ubisoft Singapore to ensure a safe, respectful, inclusive, and equitable workplace for every member of our team,” managing director Darryl Long said following the investigation’s conclusion, according to IGN. “We will continue striving to be an exemplary employer in Singapore and the region, one that attracts and retains the best talents and creates amazing games that enrich the lives of our players.”

4 hours 36 minutes ago

Yu-Gi-Oh Master Duel Downloads

Konami announced downloads for Yu-Gi-Oh Master Duel exceeded 4 million worldwide. The title launched on January 19, 2022, following a brief delay out of 2021. This means it hit the milestone after only a week. [Thanks, 4Gamer!]

Yu-Gi-Oh Master Duel offers over 10,000 cards, which players can obtain through spending in-game currency or crafting. The in-game currency can be obtained by playing the single-player story mode. This mode is intended to help players learn the various rules and systems before jumping into online play. In addition, players can dismantle cards they do not want to obtain "Craft Points." These points can be used to craft cards. Players can also buy pre-built decks or cosmetic accessories through the in-game shop. There are also some free packs that people can get.

Konami plans to eventually host official tournaments through Yu-Gi-Oh Master Duel. This could include the title potentially appearing at the Yu-Gi-Oh World Championships in some capacity. Leaks also suggested that some more single mode stories will appear for people who want more single-player options in the game.

Apex Legends Season 12 Launch Trailer Teases Changes to Olympus Map

4 hours 51 minutes ago

Respawn is back at it again with another trailer to hype up a new season of their popular battle royale. Apex Legends Season 12: Defiance just received a cinematic launch trailer that gives us a look at Mad Maggie’s introduction to the Apex Games along with some changes to the Olympus map.

Defiance goes live on Feb. 8 and, as fans can expect, it’s bringing more than just a new Legend. Even though the video didn’t show any gameplay, it teased Olympus being warped while falling out of the sky along with some new lore and Mad Maggie’s potential abilities.

Also, when the new season drops, it’ll bring a brand-new LTM called Control that’ll be live for three weeks. It’s a 9v9 mode with infinite respawn where teams fight to capture and hold points on the map, which sounds a lot like Hardpoint Domination from Titanfall 2.

You can check out the trailer for Apex Legends Season 12 for yourself right here to see all of the mayhem for yourself:

4 hours 51 minutes ago

Pat Baer is a comedian currently living in South Carolina who you may have seen at various PAXes with his panels Pat Baer’s Anime Club, The Improvised Postmortem, and League of Heels. You also may have encountered him on Twitch, where he builds Gundams and LEGO. He hopes to move back to NYC in 2022.

2021 was another year where I stuck with only a few video games, but watched a lot of anime. And once again the fine folks at Giant Bomb let me share a list of my favorite anime of 2021! If you like your lists in video format, I’ve got you covered here: click!

Honorable mention goes to The Faraway Paladin, which starts as a slow and patient exploration of what it means to be given a second chance at life, but by the end of the season is just another decent isekai.

Now we know she'll be emerging from the backstory and joining the playable Legend roster with Season 12 (Defiance), and a new trailer gives us our first look at her rather destructive set of abilities.

This week the Electronic Wireless Show podcast discusses some of our favourite (and least favourite) inventory configurations. A humble beast, the inventory, yet a feature of many games - sometimes even a necessity. Often we only notice one if it's terrible. But boy, a good inventory is worth a dozen mules. So lets talk about them today!

In other news this week, Nate thinks he has come up with an original premise for a Pixar film, only to discover he has invented Seth Rogan's nightmare film Sausage Party, and we are officially starting our campaign to get Henry 'Vitamin H' Cavill on the show.

Horizon Forbidden West Has Gone Gold

5 hours 34 minutes ago

Guerilla Games’ anticipated upcoming sequel is no longer in danger of any delays. The developer has today announced that Horizon Forbidden West has gone Gold, a term that was originally coined to describe the process of the final data file being ready for print on CD. Today’s digital era has slightly muddied the water on what exactly going Gold really represents (given that day one patches typically make huge changes to the “final” data file), but it does at least mean that the game will certainly be launching on Feb. 25.

The news comes by way of a Tweet from the game’s official channel, which, as you’ll see, includes a short video teaser:

Genshin Impact Alternate Outfits Will Be Distributed Today

Genshin Impact Alternate Outfits Will Be Distributed Today

The Genshin Impact alternate outfits for Amber, Jean, Mona, and Rosaria will be distributed starting January 27, 2022. People will get them for free. MiHoYo went over the process. All someone needs to do is log in between January 27, 2022 and the launch of the 2.5 update for them. They will be included via an in-game letter. However, after 2.5 they will be unlocked in a different way.

The letter with the costumes will be available for 30 days after you get it. Once you do, you can change the way they look from the character menu. On the main page there, you can press a button to choose between available outfits. Amber, Jean, Mona, and Rosaria’s original outfits and alternate costumes will all be available there when you get them. (So will any paid outfits if you have them and are available.

After 2.5, the costumes will unlock once you get the characters. Of the four characters, Amber is the only person who is earned for free. As people go through the Genshin Impact tutorial, they unlock the four-star Pyro archer. Rosaria is a four-star Cryo character who uses polearms and is available via banners. Both Jean and Mona are five-stars available all the time via Wanderlust Invocation standard and event wishes. (Jean is an Anemo swordswoman, while Mona is a Hydro catalyst-wielder.) So once people would pull one of those three from a banner for the first time, they’d get them and the extra outfit.

Deflector review (early access): a chaotic roguelike with boomerangs and bugs

6 hours 6 minutes ago

Boomerangs are cool as hell. The sleek wooden objects careen through the air in a perfect circle - in theory, at least - before returning right back to where they began in the palm of your hand. They’re something that fascinated me as a child, and 20-something years later I still don’t really know how or why they work.

Deflector is like someone taped two swords to a boomerang, Mad Max-style. How does the boomerang still operate with twin blades slashing back and forth on either end? Don’t know. How does it always circle its way back to where you’re standing after dashing around an arena filled with enemies? Not a clue.

Atelier Sophie 2 Is a Familiar Adventure for the Fans (Hands-On Preview)

6 hours 14 minutes ago

Once upon a time, the Atelier series used to not get sequels bringing back the same protagonist. Apparently, Atelier Ryza 2 paved the way, and fans will soon be able to enjoy the return of another fan favorite. Sophie Neuenmuller will be back with Atelier Sophie 2: The Alchemist of the Mysterious Dream.

I got my hands on a pre-release copy of the English version of the game on PC, and it certainly feels like a treat for the fans. Sophie is definitely a beloved character among the rich cast of the Atelier series, having appeared in several games on top of the one (now two) in which she’s the main heroine.

The story starts pretty much where we had left it, with Sophie more determined than ever to take the Alchemist exam to follow in the footsteps of her grandmother and to find a way to give Plachta a human body.

Yet, things don’t go as planned and our heroine finds herself in a different world created by the goddess of dreams, separated from her friend. Though, not all the people she’ll meet will be complete strangers… in a big twist.

Horizon Forbidden West Has Gone Gold, Guerrilla Releases New Look At PS4 Gameplay

Horizon Forbidden West Guerilla Games Has Gone Gold

Guerilla Games has announced that Horizon Forbidden West, the upcoming post-apocalyptic sequel to 2017’s Horizon Zero Dawn, has gone gold. To accompany the news, the studio released some new gameplay footage and screenshots from the PlayStation 4 version of the game. 

When a game goes gold, it means the version of the game being put onto discs has been finalized. However, as anyone that plays games today likely knows, Day One updates are quite a regular occurrence and while Forbidden West has gone gold, Guerilla is likely working on one for this title. That means that sure, when you pop in the disc on February 18, the game will be playable but Guerilla will likely want you to download that Day One patch for an even better launch day experience.

Subaru's Nendoroid will come with a removable hat and several facial expressions. The set will also come with a couple of plates featuring her famous tweets—her first-ever tweet and the "Subaru is a girl too" quote. As with other Hololive VTuber Nendoroids, Subaru's figure will have a pedestal with her name. A small figure of the mascot-like duck Subarudo will complete the set.

Unlike other recent Nendoroids like Jojo Bizarre Adventure's Jolyne and Zagreus from Hades, Good Smile Company has put a hard limit on pre-orders for the Oozora Subaru Nendoroid. It will close the pre-order session when the amount has reached the limit. The company may re-open orders at a later date, but it will also produce and deliver subsequent batches later than the initial release.

Preview: Atelier Sophie 2 Focuses on Its Alchemy and Characters

It’s been over six years since the original Atelier Sophie debuted in Japan. Since then, four other mainline entries appeared. Simply put, a lot’s happened! Now Atelier Sophie 2 is about to appear and take things Gust’s learned to apply it to new and existing characters and a new world. The result is something in which the changes are evident, even though it might also feel a bit familiar.

As before, characters dreams from the original game are still building in Atelier Sophie 2. Sophie still wants to be as grand an alchemist of her grandmother. She wants to be licensed. Plachta, while now in a doll body due to the events of the first game, hopes for a human form again. While working toward this goal, Plachta dreamed about a mysterious tree. Sophie and her found their way to it. When they do, it looks different than it did in her mind. Upon investigating it, it pulls Plachta in. Sophie grabs her hand to save her, and the two get dragged into another realm. Said other realm being Erde Wiege. It is a dream world filled with unfamiliar characters. But it’s also one where perhaps both women could continue to work toward their goals.
