Sekiro’s new update is aimed at making players experiment more

FromSoftware’s latest update for Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice will offer some much needed balance to the game’s use of Spirit Emblems and how the shinobi prosthetic tools and combat arts consume them. The following prosthetic tools will have their Spirit Emblem cost adjusted: Lazulite Sacred Flame, the Loaded Axe series, Sparking Axe, and Lazulite Axe. Two combat arts have been nerfed: Senpou Leaping Kicks and High Monk were delivering more posture damage than intended, FromSoftware said. Spiritfal

Pokémon Go friendship guide: How to get Lucky Friends

Whether it’s to help with raids or trade Pokémon, friendship shouldn’t be ignored. The cost lowers to 800,000 for Great Friends, 80,000 for Ultra Friends, and 40,000 for Best Friends. Once you’re Best Friends with another player, anything that would normally raise your friendship levels will have a chance to turn you both into Lucky Friends. This means that your next trade with that player will turn both traded Pokémon into Lucky Pokémon. Lucky Pokémon have their power up Stardust cost cut in ha

Here’s what Minecraft looks like with 2019’s most powerful graphics settings

Here is a surprisingly watchable technical demonstration from Digital Foundry — using Minecraft of all things — to point out its applications — like your username casting a shadow. Minecraft, using the mod Sonic Ether’s Unbelievable Shadows, makes for a surprisingly good test space. “Because these objects are non-moving and in a binary, present-or-deleted situation, that makes the calculations easier,” Linneman adds. “It honestly just looks like an architectural rendering,” Battaglia says at one

MLB The Show’s Road to the Show is so much better with these two community toolkits

In MLB The Show, players can give their creations (whether RTTS or in the main game) any of 1,329 batting swings and 712 pitching deliveries. Many of these are listed under their owner’s name, either because they’re currently an MLB player or they’re an old-timer licensed to appear in the game. Again, because of licensing, no player without MLB service can be a member of the MLB Players Association, and therefore they are not covered by the group license to their likeness. The rosters can be fou

Smash Bros. stage builder brings the inevitable: memes, dongs and moderation

Super Smash Bros. stage builder mode, which allows players to create and share custom stages, has gone about as expected in its first week on offer. Perhaps that’s an exaggeration, but it does describe the moderation headache Nintendo (and by extension, Smash fans) signed up for when this toolkit launched. So @Nintendo has, in their infinite wisdom, decided that this stage featuring the trans flag violates their TOS. #SmashBros #NintendoSwitch pic.twitter.com/9FWgQpcCDG — Warm Safflina (@WarmSaf
