Tips For Using Each Character in Overwatch

 Overwatch is a popular game, and has even been awarded Game of the Year for 2016 from a number of publications. Beyond just being a fun game, Overwatch also has a strong eSports community. There’s also the competitive mode that allows for a more serious level of gameplay for those who wish to stay with the game in the long-term.

But how do you know when you’re ready to take it up a notch? Well that usually comes once you understand the capabilities of each character and how to utilize them in in situations. With that in mind, I’ve decided to compile this list Overwatch tips for every character.

Since Overwatch is a game that is prone to character buffs and Nerfs, these can change tactics over time; therefore these tips will constantly be updated as things are updated in the game. We will also continue to add new characters shortly after they release. Feel free to also suggest tips or call out outdated tactics in the comments.

On top of these character tips, its also important to

Yooka Laylee – Tips to Find the Toybox Secret in the Full Game

 his guide will show you how to find the Toybox secret in the full game of Yooka-Laylee. There are a lot of secrets and well-hidden collectibles in Yooka-Laylee, such as the Ghost Writers or the very sneaky Pirate Treasures, but the Toybox demo secret is probably the best!

For those that aren’t aware, Yooka-Laylee had a demo to show off some of the movement and ideas in the game. Any players who collected all 100 Quills, pressed a hidden button, and then found the INEPT robot were told to remember a secret. This Toybox secret is hidden in the full game of Yooka-Laylee.

Note: This contains spoilers about World 5 as well as the Toybox secret!

How to Find the Toybox Secret

  • The hint to find the Toybox secret in the full game of Yooka-Laylee was to search for a pirate ship and look for a rock. Playtonic has been extremely cheeky with their design, as the opening area has a pirate ship, but that’s not the one!

Overwatch Overview : Lucio Revamp

 What has Blizzard got in store for us this time? Previously we saw some huge changes to multiple heroes, alongside the release of the new hero Orisa, detailed here.

How could this patch possibly stack up against such large and interesting additions from our last go around? I’ll tell you how! With a complete Lucio revamp and a slew of new content, including a brand new cooperative brawl accompanied by a fully overhauled King’s Row.

Let’s jump right in by taking a look at just how different Lucio will be from now on.

It’s your boy Lucio:

  • Name: Lŭcio Correia dos Santos
  • Role: Support
  • Origin: Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
  • Occupation: DJ

This time around Lucio received a combination of buffs and nerfs to create a faster, more engaging experience which significantly changes his active role on the team.

Since Lucio is a healer, let’s start with the healing.

Crossfade:

  • Area of effect radius has been decreased from 30 meters to 10 meters
    • What this really means:
      • You’re playing babysitter now, and you’ll be accidentally killed in crossfire 66.6% more often.
  • Heal Song:
    • Healing per second has increased by 30%

What We Know About Mario’s First Nintendo Switch Outing

The Nintendo Switch has been out for about a month now and if you own the machine, you’re most likely playing Zelda. Or maybe you’re playing Snipper Clips or 1-2 Switch, if – you know – you want to be different.

With a new Nintendo console, it makes sense that everyone’s favourite fat plumber gets a new title as well. Cue Super Mario Odyssey. The trailer dropped at the Nintendo Switch conference in January 2017, and in typical Nintendo fashion, they are none too hasty to give further detail. Logically, more will come at E3 2017 in June, when Nintendo presumably want to top up on fuel for the hype train. But let’s not stop thinking about what we already know, because despite the trailer only being two minutes long, there’s a lot to look forward to.

DONK CITY, BITCH, DONK DONK CITY, BITCH

Perhaps the most glaring aspect of the trailer is that Mario has been taken out of the Mushroom Kingdom, where for the last thirty years he has stomped goombas, kicked koopa shells and battered King Bowser’s offspring so many times that social services are well overdue a welfare visit. It makes

Tips To Unlock All Important Skills And Abilities in Persona 5

You will need to unlock some of the more important skills and abilities if you want to have an easier time in Persona 5. There are a lot of abilities and skills that are limited to a specific condition, like reaching a certain rank with a Confidant.

There are a variety of skills, some restricted to the main character, while others can be used by the different party members. There are also skills that unlock new activities to perform in the game’s world leading to an increase in the social stats.

How To Unlock Baton Pass Skill For Every Character

Baton Pass is a special skill in Persona 5 that gives the character an extra turn if they manage to perform a strike that enters the enemy in a ‘weak’ state. This skill has to be unlocked for every character if you want to use Baton Pass with them. To unlock this skill for every character, you will need to reach confidant rank 2 with them.

How To Unlock Follow Up Skill For Every Character

This is another useful skill that can come handy in battle. To unlock it, you will need to reach confidant

Tips to Farm Money in Persona 5

Persona 5 is not a challenging game at the normal difficulty setting and while the game doesn’t offer much money in the start, it doesn’t really feel like there is a need to farm it until later in the game. Money is essential for getting a Persona which is registered as well as fusing an extremely powerful Ultimate Persona, if you are playing on New Game+ mode.

Money Farming Guide For Persona 5: How To Easily Farm Million Yen The main currency in Persona 5 is the Japanese Yen although it can be acquired in different ways. You can refer our detailed guide here in order to read on how to make money easily, but if you want to exploit certain aspects of the game to make a huge amount of money in a short time, you can check out the steps listed in this guide.

The trick to getting a huge amount of money from enemies is to exploit the confusion skill together with a high luck stat. This can be done by first fusing or catching ‘Onmoraki’, which starts at Level 12. This Persona needs to be leveled up to 15 in order to

Project Scorpio vs. PS4 Pro – What Gamers Need to Know

Microsoft finally pulled back the curtain on the Xbox Scorpio, and there can be no doubt that it is the most powerful console ever created. It places Microsoft back on the throne and leaves the PlayStation 4 Pro behind when it comes to things like 4K gaming and overall improvement for console gaming.

However, all the power of the Scorpio, begs for platform exclusives and if Microsoft Doesn’t deliver in that regard, then the PlayStation 4 Pro could still come out on top as the darling of console gamers. I think Microsoft is going to throw in a few exclusives at this year’s E3.

Digital Foundry’s Tom and Rich have had some exclusive time with the Scorpio, and in their latest video they tackle the important question of the “Project Scorpio vs. PS4 Pro.” Below is a summary of the most important points.

Project Scorpio vs. PS4 Pro by Digital Foundry

So, how will the Scorpio pair up against the PlayStation 4 Pro? That is the question. Previously, the PlayStation 4 had a clear advantage over the Xbox One with most games hitting 1080p on PS4, and most hitting 900p

New Video Game Releases for the Week of 4-9-17

With the release of Persona 5 now behind us, so too passes the torrential downpour of great, content-heavy games. As we all start chipping away at the backlog, we must all be wary of that level of comfort. It may allow a few smaller game releases to slip under the radar this week, and there’s quite a few that, at the least, look worthy of investigation.

Tuesday marks the release of Yooka-Laylee, arguably one of the more monumental new games this week, but everyone gets a little bit of everything. Cosmic Star Heroine should satisfy those looking for an old school JRPG (inspired by Chrono Trigger), A Rose in the Twilight looks macabre and full of trepidation mixed with wonder, and The Sexy Brutale presents an equally strange and disturbing murder mystery to be solved.

Oh, and Planescape: Torment gets an Enhanced Edition that offers a pretty genuine makeover for the classic, so that’s sure to strum some major chords of nostalgia for many.

As always, everything is for PC unless stated otherwise, and the bold titles are the games that have piqued my interest.

ALL CHANGES IN MARIO KART 8 DELUXE

I don’t know about you but as a new owner of a Nintendo Switch, I have been growing more and more anxious to start filling out my library with great new games. Unfortunately Nintendo has been putting us all on a drip feed of new content since the console dropped back in March, but coming on the 28th of this month we’ll finally have a second Nintendo published title on Switch, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe.

Sure it’s just a suped up re-release of a Wii U game, but frankly, if they were any game on the Wii U whose shelf life hadn’t nearly been reached, it’s Mario Kart 8. Plus this time around it seems that Nintendo aimed to create their magnum opus of kart racers, pulling in the best features from nearly every game in the series. For some though this may still be a hard sell as they are looking at it as a straight port with some extra DLC. Well to help clear up any confusion, or to help solidify any presumed value, I wanted to collect a clear and distinct list of all the new features player will find in Mario Kart 8 Deluxe.

RIP, Disney Infinity, And Thank You

Last month, the servers for Disney Infinity—once aiming to be the biggest thing in video games and toys—were quietly shut down. It’s fitting for the game’s sad demise that few people even bothered to notice.

We knew it was coming, of course: we were told in July 2016, not long afterInfinity’s cancellation, that the game’s slow death march would begin with the stripping of the PC and mobile versions from app stores at the time, and continue until March 2017 when one of the cornerstones of the project—its online services—were closed down.

This has now taken place. Where once half the point of the game was building new levels and worlds for others to play in, and downloading those made by fans from across the world, Disney Infinity is now strictly a local experience, each copy’s playsets limited to what the user is able to cobble together.

Coupled with the lack of new titles or toys, and the fire sale of figures that took place throughout the back end of 2016, this effectively marks the end forDisney Infinity. Yes, you can technically still buy a copy, but the heart of the game is gone.

YOOKA-LAYLEE MOVES & ABILITIES GUIDE

Sonar Shot

5 OF THE BEST FREE-TO-PLAY GAMES ON XBOX ONE

Being a gamer these days can be pretty expensive, with top titles always lurking just around the corner, looking to relieve you of a decent amount of cash. So it’s a welcome relief to see an influx of free-to-play titles hit the Xbox One in recent times, providing a variety of games to delve into without a price tag. Sure, most of the time the developers actively encourage the purchase of add-ons, but that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy free-to-play titles and keep your wallet out of sight.

In the interest of fairness, we believe the majority of free games are worth a look and many enjoyable ones unfortunately won’t make this list. But these are what we consider to be 5 of the best free-to-play games on Xbox One…

Hawken

The easiest way to describe Hawken would be to liken it to a budget version of the massively successful Titanfall series, albeit without the Pilot action or a story mode. Essentially a mech based first person shooter, Hawken ignites that competitive spirit across a handful of game modes, where teamwork is just as important as dominating the battlefield with a lone ranger mindset. You’ll

5 supporting characters who ended up starring in their own games

Spinoff games are typically a good time, because it’s always nice to see an established world from a different angle. It’s also a great opportunity to shine the spotlight on a character besides the hero everyone knows. Maybe it’ll be the trusty sidekick, as in Daxter, Secret Agent Clank, or Yoshi’s Island; perhaps a prime antagonist will get a turn as an antihero, like in The Misadventures of Tron Bonne or Dishonored’s Knife of Dunwall DLC. But some spinoffs spin wayoff the beaten path and give a totally tangential character their shot at glory. These unlikely protagonists once existed purely as comic relief, backstory footnotes, or ordinary bosses in their first appearance, then somehow got bumped up to be the headliner star of their very own adventure. Turns out, some former extras turn out to be pretty great leads when given the chance. Keep that in mind next time you’re chatting up a seemingly inconsequential NPC or beating on a boss.

YOOKA-LAYLEE GHOST WRITER LOCATION GUIDE

Yooka-Laylee has finally landed, bringing a nostalgic type of of adventure platforming gameplay worthy of the title of spiritual successor to the Nintendo 64’s Banjo-Kazooie back into our collective gaming lives. There are plenty of lush worlds to explore and challenges to endure as the bat and chameleon duo take on the dastardly Capital B and his corporate empire of mischievous minions.

Of course, in any spiritual successor to Banjo-Kazooie, there are going to be a healthy amount of collectibles to find and Yooka-Laylee is chock full of them, from Quills to Pagies to continue your campaign. Not the least of these are the Ghost Writers, who lay hidden throughout each of Yooka-Laylee’s five worlds, each requiring a careful eye and the right moves in order to reach and collect them.

That said, never fear! We’ve spent extensive time with the game and tracked down those tricky ghosts so you don’t have to comb worlds from head to toe. Keep in mind that there are a full set of five ghosts in every world, making for 25 Ghost Writers in total. Furthermore, they come in five colors, each requiring a certain basic strategy to collect as

7 More Modern Games Besides Yooka-Laylee

SNAKE PASS

Snake Pass has a lot in common with the platformers of the 90s, although it comes with a unique twist. As you might expect, you play as a snake named Noodle. However, the physics of the game are entirely built around your movement. You won’t be jumping your way across platforms this time, instead you’ll be slithering up areas and using momentum to propel yourself.

The entire crux of Snake Pass is actually built around finding collectibles. There are 15 levels spread out across four themed worlds, and in each level you’ll have to collect three sets of hidden collectibles. These get increasingly more difficult as the game goes on, and you’ll need to use all of your wits to find them. It may be a bit different from the platformers you’re used to and the controls take some adjustment, but after that you’ll find a fun collect-a-thon experience unlike any others.

SHOVEL KNIGHT

Shovel Knight is one of the finest retro homages we’ve ever seen, perfectly evoking the careful platforming of older titles while introducing modern design concepts like checkpoints and a detailed inventory system. It plays a bit

Bayonetta PC runs beautifully

After years of hoping and waiting, Sega has finally delivered the goods – Bayonetta is now available on PC. The pitch is simple enough: this is the original game without any of the flaws inherent to the console versions, and with PC’s ability to scale up resolution. To say it runs smoothly on a vast range of hardware would be an understatement – we could hit something approaching a locked 1080p60 on a 1GB Radeon HD 7770, a budget GPU when it was released way back in 2012. On more recent graphics hardware, the only way is up.

Let’s start with the options – as a game designed specifically for consoles of the past, we didn’t expect much in the way of detail settings but there are a few tweakables of note. You can adjust texture and shadow quality as you see fit and the game even reports VRAM usage based on your current settings. Well, at least it tries to report it – the numbers are significantly lower than those registered by monitoring tools like MSI Afterburner. There isn’t a tremendous difference between the options available, the exception being dynamic shadow quality, which varies dramatically based

Victor Vran: Motörhead Through The Ages

Before the game was even released there was talk of secured licensing for a Motörhead expansion for the game [Engadget Nee Joystiq]. However, it’s only this year, in the Overkill Edition -which also includes another expansion, Fractured Worlds- that it will finally become available to the public.

Wired Productions, who are handling the physical PC, Xbox One & PS4 release of the new version, were at the recent EGX Rezzed show at the London Tobacco Docks, and I managed to get some time on the Motörhead expansion; Motörhead: Through the Ages.

In my opinion Metal (although apparently Lemmy would’ve have us say Rock & Roll)  translates really well into games. For a start the imagery and lunacy matches up perfectly; songs about good vs evil, or outwitting the devil, journeying through hell, or cheating death themself. It’s no surprise then that modern ARPG Victor Vran handles the Motörhead treatment so well – the core series, which featured a plethora of weapon and loot drops with crazy abilities, as well as an expansive world; – is only built on with a thick coating of the band’s flavour.

The expansion’s three worlds and hub are based
