Control’s New Combat-Focused Update Is Fun Even When It’s Destroying Me

Control’s New Combat-Focused Update Is Fun Even When It’s Destroying Me

When I first heard about Control’s new Expeditions mode, timed events based around combat that went live last night during the Game Awards, I was skeptical. Control is an atmospheric thriller, and while I think it handles third-person action combat well, it’s not the reason I’d recommend the game (which I definitely would). But here I am, several hours into failing to successfully complete...

New Fallout 76 Bugs Are Making Armor Weak And Weapons Brittle

New Fallout 76 Bugs Are Making Armor Weak And Weapons Brittle

It wouldn’t be a Fallout 76 patch if it didn’t introduce a few unusual new bugs, and yesterday’s update was no exception. Some players are discovering that reloading their weapons causes their defense stats to drop.

The bug is pretty straightforward: A player reloads their weapon and then sees the defense stats for their some of their legendary armor pieces take a nosedive. One player showed...

PSA: If Destiny 2's Osiris Says He Doesn't Have New Quests, Keep Asking

Destiny 2's Season of Dawn began today, and with it came all sorts of changes, including the return of the mysterious exiled Warlock Osiris. He has new quests for you, but for some reason, he likes to hide them.

Osiris appears to be the main quest giver this season, and as a result, players will spend a lot of their time running back and forth to his new Sundial Spire on Mercury. Once you come...

RedBox Is Ending Its Video Game Rentals, And I'll Miss Them A Lot

There’s a small stall that occupies approximately 10 square feet of the sprawling, glass-roofed warehouse where I buy my groceries. Inside are a handful of discs—a rotating shortlist of the most popular console blockbusters—that I can take home, try, and return for only a few bucks. Redbox, you’ve burned me in the past, but damn it if I’m not going to miss the hell out of you when your games...

King Of Cards Adds A Fun Card Game To Everything That Already Makes Shovel Knight Great

King Of Cards Adds A Fun Card Game To Everything That Already Makes Shovel Knight Great

Shovel Knight: King of Cards is the perfect reason to jump back into Yacht Club Games’ ever-expanding shovel-verse. The game’s terrific platforming and treasure hunting are back, but there’s also a great new mini-game now, and it’s all a blast to play.

I wish every great indie game received the DLC treatment Shovel Knight has. Nearly five years since it released, Shovel Knight is still...

Mario Maker 2's New Speedrunning Mode Looks A Lot Like A Popular Fan-Made Hack

In addition to the ability to play as Link, Super Mario Maker 2’s latest update has added a new speedrunning mode that’s remarkably similar to one rom hacker’s mod of an SNES emulator called Quantum Mario. This has raised questions about Nintendo’s relationship with the Mario homebrew community and the designers that power its Mario Maker games.

“In 2008 I hacked [the emulator] SNES9X to let...
