In that it will feature the ability to customise and create your own Sonic hero, choosing from a number of different animal types including Wolf, Dog, Cat, and of course, Hedgehog. With each offering a different special ability along the lines of 'Keeps one ring after being hit', 'Blows away enemies with a homing attack', and 'lies high with double jump abilities'. Plus, you can make you own Sonic creation wear glasses.
Thanks in part to D.Va joining the ranks as a new hero, but mainly the latest quest that rewards players upon completion with -- get this, 10 x Loot Chests for Heroes of the Storm and 10 x Loot Boxes for Overwatch. Yeah, a pretty tasty deal. Having only recently garnered enough courage to face off against humans as opposed to AI, I've been having a blast with Heroes of the Storm of late. And I can't wait to hop into D.Va's mech and... maybe come out victorious.
Expected at launch but delayed due to production constraints, Nintendo Australia has finally dropped word that the Nintendo Switch Dock will go on sale May 26 for $129.95. Basically everything but the Switch unit itself, the separate dock will come packed with an AC adapter and HDMI cable. Described as "ideal for those with multiple TVs." And those willing to spend considerable money to avoid moving cables.
As previously mentioned Microsoft is putting just about every digital Xbox 360 title that works on Xbox One on sale, with hundreds of titles discounted. The sale page only lists the discount amount in percentage, up to 75%, so you'll need to click on each game to find out the price. Which is slightly annoying.
With the two new heroes being the Centurion and the Shinobi -- trailers for both can be found after the jump. Season Two will also bring two new maps into the mix, Forge and Temple Garden. Because hey, every multiplayer game needs to have a map called 'Forge' at some stage. All new maps and gameplay updates are currently free for all players with the two heroes available to Season Pass owners until May 23.
Resulting in a resounding yes, yes, and yes from us. Now you might be wondering why we'd be excited to see The Crew 2, well the answer to that would rely on Ubisoft pulling a Watch Dogs 2 and turning the open world racing game meets RPG into a Watch Dogs 2 style bright and colourful affair. Something like Forza Horizon.
Based on perhaps the Greatest Sci-Fi Television Series of All Time, Battlestar Galactica Deadlock is a strategy game set during the first Cylon War that will let players build a fleet, fight battles, and defend the Twelve Colonies. About frakkin' time too, as we've waiting on a decent game set in this universe since it was still airing on TV. And we were wondering who the Final Five were.
For a while Microsoft has played with the idea of releasing a remake of its classic strategy fighting game Phantom Dust, where the on-screen action melds with the mechanics of a competitive card game. A fresh idea at the time and still very cool today, Phantom Dust has remained a cult favourite for many years. And in a surprise announcement a remastered version is going to be given away, for free, starting tomorrow for Xbox One and Windows 10.
Okay, so whatever the actual Xbox Scorpio ends up being it absolutely needs to come with this screen. And sure, we agree with you that it is somewhat useless and not all that practical. But a fully programmable front panel that can display all sorts of statistical things like FPS counts and weather forecasts, plus play an animated movie of monochrome dolphins swimming is something that we didn't know we needed.
