The start of Apex Legends' first season saw the introduction of a new character, Octane—and one more character will arrive before the season is over, according to Sony's website. Sony's Apex Legends PS4 page says that "two new characters will launch over the course of the season", one of which is Octane. One new weapon will also arrive during the season and launch with a "full set of cosmetics to unlock", Sony said. The season is set to last around 12 weeks."Two new items" will also make their way to the game in that time—I presume one of them is the jump pads linked to Octane, so we can expect one more item soon.Apex Legends datamines have previously revealed apparent details of eight new characters. Most leaks have paired Octane with a character called Wattson who uses a Tesla Trap ability, so she's the most likely candidate to arrive soon. … [Read more...] about Apex Legends Season 1 will include one more new character
The Dirt, a Netflix original that charts the rise and fall and rise of legendary glam rockers Mötley Crüe, is a remarkably tame adaptation of one of the wildest stories in music. The film still chronicles the band’s horrible behavior or the tragedies of their own lives; you’ll see various members of Mötley Crüe hit women, kill another musician in a car accidents, die (temporarily) from a drug overdose, suffer from arthritis, and lose a child to cancer. And it’s all done while they treat everyone in their lives with contempt! In the end, making the story feel so flat is something of a feat. The band, made up of singer Vince Neil (Daniel Webber), guitarist Mick Mars (Iwan Rheon), bassist Nikki Sixx (Douglas Booth), and drummer Tommy Lee (Machine Gun Kelly, apparently?), are all played like lovable scamps who just can’t say no to another woman or another line of blow. Jeff Tremaine, of Jackass fame, directs each scene the subtlety of a school … [Read more...] about Netflix’s The Dirt somehow manages to make Mötley Crüe boring
I got absolutely thrashed the first couple of times I played the Space Junkies open beta on PSVR. At first I thought it was just because I was a bit of a noob, but then I twigged the real reason - Space Junkies is cross-play between PS4 and PC. PC players, it turns out, are able to use motion controls that allow them to dual wield and aim with two weapons independently. PSVR players on the other handed are limited to a bizarre control scheme that sees you aiming and moving with the DualShock 4 only. This is something that takes a little while to get used to, as you'll be able to see in this week's Ian's VR Corner.Now, before I recorded this week's episode, I did figure out that you could turn off cross-play between both platforms, so you'll actually be able to watch me get some rather satisfying wins. What you won't be able to see me turn off however is the God-awful snap-turning, but more on that after the video... I should clarify before I continue that I have only played the … [Read more...] about Space Junkies PSVR open beta shows promise, shame about the control scheme
Players believe a room hidden within The Division 2 is communicating secrets by way of lights flashing Morse code.While we've not intentionally included any plot or story information in this story, there may be accidental spoilers here, so if you've yet to play or would prefer to uncover this for yourself, please click away now.According to a Reddit thread (thanks, Joe Parlock), players believe the lights may be intimating clues about a hidden - or possibly upcoming - mission concerning the Washington Court Hotel. "So everybody knows the secret mission and the weird G. Phillips Protocol side mission after it, you go into the house, open the doors, and mission complete, inside there's some loot and that's it..." wrote u/Ancop. "Something is off. First, remember Manny telling you it was morse code? Well, this lamp is flickering in a pattern."You can see how it dims and stops in a pattern. Then there's this downstairs - after you shoot out the lightbulbs there are those flashlights aimed … [Read more...] about Is The Division 2 sending secret messages via flashing lights and Morse code?
The Division 2 has had a nice helping of bug fixes in recent patches already, but inevitably things fall through the virtual net, and players continue to find some of the most random glitches. The latest bug was recently cited on Reddit (via Kotaku), and comes in the shape of floating grey square wedged at the top of a staircase located nearby the Ivy Tunnel control point. In the post, players trying to climb the stairs find themselves stonewalled by this almighty grey anomaly with no chance of reaching the top. There are obvious ways around it of course, but it’s getting in the way of some serious stair-climbing action.In fact, our very own GamesRadar+ Editor, Sam, experienced the glitch for herself last night as she was no doubt conquering the post-apocalyptic landscapes of Washington D.C. You can see the stairs in question for yourself thanks to this clip posted by reddit user jmxd. Many Reddit users have said they noticed this glitch not long after launch … [Read more...] about The Division 2 players are getting really annoyed by a broken staircase
