As you'd expect, Mark Hamill is playful, sweet, and a bit zany. He can't give us any info about Rise of Skywalker, but he does speak to the charity work he's proud of, and discusses his connection to gaming. "For me, gaming was a bonding experience when they were young," he says, "And I'm talking like four, five, six, okay. And we were entry level, the first system we bought was Odyssey 2, and the next thing we got was was Atari. And it went on and on. The hilarious thing was in six to eight months they were far more accomplished than I was. I really recommend it for young parents." … [Read more...] about Watch Mark Hamill and Ninja play Fortnite to celebrate Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker

Seriously, spoilers. At the end of 2018's God of War Kratos and Atreus discover Faye, AKA Mrs Kratos, was actually a giant called Laufey, making Atreus half god and half-giant, and with another name: Loki.

God of War played pretty fast and loose with Norse mythology but could offer some hints as to what's to come. … [Read more...] about God of War’s 2020 sequel: All the clues we have so far
And this may help explain why Fable games feel so lightweight at times, how lengthy sessions with them can bring on the queasiness that comes from prolonged indulgence, as if you've been sat at a lavish buffet where everything turns out to be made of meringue. Fable's landscapes are beautiful, from the stark, relentless coastline of Rookridge to the glittering pools of Gemstone Grotto, but they do not easily fit together or convince as practical spaces, just as, while its names and language are gloriously British (Oakvale, Knothole Glade, the motley of regional accents, the lovely talk of "soggy" sunlight) they do not suggest a great coherent heft of lore behind them.

The grinding sucks but taking the time to log in during events like this does a lot to alleviate it. When one way to make a game more fun is to not play it much, that does seem to point to a problem. But hey, now I might get myself that new supercar I’ve been fancying. … [Read more...] about GTA Online and Red Dead Online are giving away free cash and guns
