Fortnite Accidentally Added Eye of the Storm Tracker Item

As seen in the image further below from the Redditor and Fortnite player known as MrPopoTFS, the title’s content update 4.2, which made its way onto servers yesterday, not only added the aforementioned Jetpacks, but also what was called an Eye of the Storm Tracker. The Storm Tracker was an idea that was being tested for one of those backpacks. “This was not intended to make it into the v4.2 Content Update and we can’t promise this will ever officially be released. However, we do hope those who g

The next PlayStation is at least three years away

The next PlayStation console isn’t close to release, according to PlayStation CEO John Kodera. “We will use the next three years to prepare the next step, to crouch down so that we can jump higher in the future,” Kodera said, as reported by the Wall Street Journal. This follows news that Sony will no longer produce physical PlayStation Vita games, an indication that the dedicated portable may not see much future support from the company. Sony had also experimented with offering certain games on

Warhammer novels for children ages 8+ are on the way

Games Workshop's Warhammer settings have been adapted into novels since the late 1980s, but never anything quite like the two books they've just announced. The Warhammer Adventures line is, as their website puts it, "perfect for bookworms aged 8-12 who want to read about heroes, aliens and monsters." Young adult fiction doesn't shy away from mature themes, but it's still tough to imagine the Warhammer 40,000 universe—the setting that gaves us the phrase "grimdark"—being the basis for kid's books

Destiny 2 Fan Site Helps Players Find Every Hidden Item

The planetary destinations of Destiny 2 have plenty of hidden items for players to find, but they have never mattered as much as they do now in the latest Warmind expansion. Finding Data Fragments and Sleeper Nodes are key to the DLC’s quests and rewards and while some players will want to find them the old-fashioned way without any help, a new fan site gives players a visual guide to every hidden item. Credit for the site goes to Richard Deveraux, an Australian Destiny 2 fan who was able to use

The Framed Collection’s noir puzzles are even better on PC

When Loveshack Entertainment announced the PC versions of Framed and Framed 2, noir puzzle games originally released on mobile, I speculated that the series' drag-and-drop interface would be a perfect fit for mouse controls. After playing the newly released Framed Collection for myself, I'm pleased to report that both games feel better than ever on PC, and just as importantly, they haven't aged a day. The Framed games are action puzzlers about guiding spies through 2D levels laid out in comic bo

The LG G7 costs more than the Samsung Galaxy S9, at least in the US

The LG G7 ThinQ price is the mystery that has prevented us from giving the phone a final score, with wildly differing estimates out there. To put it another way, that amounts to $30 a month for 24 months (after an initial $30 down). More expensive than the Galaxy S9And to put it yet another way, the LG G7 ThinQ costs more than the Samsung Galaxy S9, which retails for $30 less at $719, or $30 a month without any money down. LG G7 pricing rumors originally had the cost anywhere from $649 to nearly

Researchers develop a way for robots to learn by watching humans

Our robot future is approaching, but there's a lot that still stands in the way of a complete machine takeover. One issue is in how humans currently communicate with robots; a lot of data and energy goes into a robot recognizing and properly executing real-world tasks, often of the simplest nature. But, researchers from Nvidia may have come up with a solution: have robots learn by watching humans. Essentially, the researchers made it so its neural networks can infer what's being done in a video-

Mike Bithell’s Quarantine Circular is a fantastic conversation with an alien

Text adventures like Quarantine Circular, the latest from indie developer Mike Bithell, present a tantalizing future for video games. Like his superb Subsurface Circular, released last year, Quarantine Circular is a series of dialogue trees, peppered with simple puzzles, climaxing in a big moral choice. Quarantine Circular is entirely relaxed about how I proceed, seemingly happy for me to click on everything until I get to the desired destination. Quarantine Circular is a useful reminder that th

Fortnite’s Solo Showdown was good, but it needs a lot of improvements

Your total score for the event was based on how you performed during your first 50 matches. The Solo Showdown winner, vRxthless — an Xbox One player who plays from the Oceanic region — earned a score of 4,881 points. How to make Solo Showdown betterFirst and foremost, Solo Showdown simply wasn’t out long enough. Speaking of wins, placing high probably shouldn’t be the only way that players earn points in Solo Showdown. It may not have been perfect in its first foray, but with just a few improvem

Metal Gear Solid 3 finds beauty in an endlessly long ladder climb

What makes the Metal Gear Solid games so special to me is that Hideo Kojima knows that in darkness, there is light; in times of danger, there are moments of quiet. Want even more Metal Gear Solid 3? But Metal Gear Solid 3’s three-minute climb is more intermission than interruption. The ladder scene is the epitome of why Metal Gear Solid series is so much more engrossing than the other gun-toting spy games it may at first resemble. No film would feature three minutes of ladder climbing, and no av
