It's a little premature to guess that another golden age is on the way now that Lucasfilm is bringing in more developers, but for now, PC Gamer's Star Wars fans are excited to have something more concrete to look forward to than 'whatever EA is doing next.' And the detail that Massive and Division 2 director Julian Gerighty are behind an upcoming Star Wars game has us imagining some interesting possibilities. The game isn't necessarily just going to be 'The Division but Star Wars,' but we can still make some educated guesses about the direction Massive might take—or, at least, the direction we want it to take. Here's what we're expecting and hoping for. … [Read more...] about What do we want from Ubisoft’s open world Star Wars game?

The pranks in question range from the predictable - such as boxing gloves that fly across the screen and tacks that jab the feet on unwary pedestrians - to the outlandish and even terrifying, like impromptu karaoke singing and electric bombs that fry everyone in range. There's also a wacky cast of rival aliens rampaging around the same maps, trying to trip up your plans and prank you in turn, and each of the game's eight maps features unique "panic time" conditions which trigger periodically adding extra perils.

The Borderlands games aren't somewhere I expect to see a sensitive portrayal of mental illness. They're full of kooky, "crazy" characters who rant about turning you into their pain-puppet, so hearing a solid bit of mental health advice mid-quest was a surprise. I did not expect that, or the parts where it talks about the value of therapy and the sidequest to transform Krieg's memory of his old cell into a safe internal happy place by redecorating it. … [Read more...] about The best parts of Borderlands 3 are hidden in its DLC
There is one more mod which merits serious consideration: High-Energy Fire. It grants a flat 20% buff to weapon damage while Charged with Light, which is obviously very good—especially in hard content. The reason I don't use it in this build is that each kill consumes a charge.

Therefore you really have to build around just High Energy Fire, using all your other slots to generate and store as many charges as possible. … [Read more...] about How to create a powerful Destiny 2 ‘Charged with Light’ build that works anywhere
