Fancy making some extra moolah in your free time? There’s now a competition – and I can’t believe I’m saying this – that sees one lucky so-and-so being paid to watch every single MCU movie. That’s all 20: Everything from the original Iron Man up to Ant-Man and the Wasp (and let’s be honest, you’ve probably already marathoned them a fair few times already). Even better, you get to tell the world all about it. What more could you want?CableTV.com (H/T CBR) is running a competition for a “Marvel fanatic” to watch all of the current MCU movies available on home media, which rules Captain Marvel out, in what sounds like a back-to-back-to-back-to-back (you get the picture) marathon. You might want to get some shuteye now in preparation. I’m feeling sleepy just reading about it.The winner, if chosen, will not only get to rewatch all of the Marvel movies (which is a prize in itself really), but also $1000, every single MCU movie … [Read more...] about How’s this for a dream job?

How much will i get paid
You don't need to have dropped 87 grand on an alpha Black Lotus to know that collectible card games have always been an expensive hobby. In the physical realm, a single competitive Magic deck can easily cost $200, but Hearthstone has always had a fuzzier relationship with cost. Technically, it's a free-to-play game, but if you want to build a competitive collection without spending a dime, it's a hell of a grind. In my analysis of the cost of Hearthstone, I estimated that a committed player will be able to amass around half a full collection, provided they're willing to play the game like a second job. Unsurprisingly, Hearthstone's rivals tend to be somewhat cheaper in order to create competition versus the market leader. Eternal even goes so far as giving advice on how to play the game without spending anything, presumably because the developers hate money and are trying to bring the system down from within. Into this environment arrives Valve's Artifact, which is upfront about … [Read more...] about How much will it really cost to build an Artifact collection?
Stardew Valley's multiplayer mode is getting closer and closer to a virtual farm near you. Lead developer Eric "ConcernedApe" Barone shared on Twitter that the new update is currently in the testing phase, which bodes well for progress on the ambitious new feature. Multiplayer support is the marquee new feature for Stardew Valley's upcoming 1.3.0 update, and thankfully we already know quite a bit about how it will work. Read on for more pertinent details from the developers themselves about farming with friends! How many people can play Stardew Valley multiplayer? Up to four players will be able to participate in a single game of Stardew Valley multiplayer. Soon after you start the game or install the update, Robin (the carpenter) will offer to build up to three additional cabins on your farm. This is where the other players - AKA the farmhands - live. They're free to wander around town and can do almost every activity available in single player, including farming, fishing, and cave … [Read more...] about Stardew Valley multiplayer is in QA now, here’s how it will play and more details
I’ve made a lot of galaxies and star empires this last week, and I’ve thrown most of them in the bin. The Stellaris 2.0 update and the accompanying Apocalypse DLC have blown this 4X game to bits, along with my fleets as I’ve tried to wrap my head around the almost-new game built out of its chunks. Though I’ve racked up hundreds of hours of galactic conquest over the last couple of years, I’ve had to start fresh and figure out how to run a stellar empire all over again. The xenophobic Imperium of Earth fell behind the rest of the galaxy and quickly found itself boxed in, the possessive but friendly Automata Matrix got squished in a war between Federations, and the slavers of the Saarlan Ravagers just weren’t fun to play because they’re dicks. I should be a bit frustrated, but instead I’m hooked again. The DLC isn’t essential, but the free update completely revitalises Stellaris, and it takes big risks to do it. One of … [Read more...] about Wot I Think: Stellaris – Apocalypse
Bungie has explained its approach to changing Destiny 2's Exotics, offering insight into its goals and what it hopes to achieve in a game update planned for March. In the latest Bungie Weekly Update senior designer Jon Weisnewski said the gameplay tuning pass on Exotic gear is focused on "adding and/or increasing player Power spikes," and although all items are being considered, special attention is being paid to low-usage items. The goal, he says, is to "lean into an item's established gameplay and push it harder" while avoiding "catch-all improvements that dilute item identity."To show what this means Weisnewski used the Graviton Lance as an example, explaining that the feedback has been that it looks cool, but isn't viable for getting kills in player-versus-player scenarios. Bungie is remedying this by reducing the recoil of the first of the weapon's burst shots. On top of that, it's introducing some aim assist to control recoil and changing it from three shot burst to two … [Read more...] about This Is How Destiny 2’s Exotics Are Changing In An Upcoming Update
