Latest Destiny Update Brings New Balance Changes

Bungie continues to update is online multiplayer shooter, and the latest hotfix for Destiny has a significant impact on players' PvP experience. 

According to Bungie's notes, the rebalancing efforts for the sandbox apply across the whole game, but will have important ramifications in the Crucible. 

Important changes involve modifications to the special ammo economy, Elimination game mode structure (which affects Trials of Osiris), and the properties of certain primary weapons like the recently popular high rate-of-fire  pulse rifles. Of particular note, shotguns are seeing some dramatic changes to the way they shoot, which may have a profound effect on the flow of most multiplayer competitive matches.

Of course, the full list is more detailed and exhaustive. Check it out for the complete rundown.


Our Take
Destiny has not been getting much new content, and this rebalance doesn't make major strides toward giving players anything new to accomplish. However, the changes do show Bungie's commitment to fine-tuning the experience, so lapsed players may still have fun jumping back into their Guardians' shoes. – The Feed

New Might & Magic Title Brings Out The Miniatures

Painting miniatures sounds great in theory, until you realize you can't even make a paint-by-numbers look right. Have no fear, Ubisoft's new Might & Magic title – subtitled Showdown, brings the act of figure painting into the virtual world, and not only makes your creations look good, but lets you focus on brining them into battle.

The game starts out with 20 characters (seven heroes and 12 creatures), with players earning coins to unlock everything via play. You can then customize/paint them through either an auto fill-in tool or freehand.

Once you've got everything looking good, you bring your hero and up to three creatures into an arena that lets you battle against the other side in real-time, complete with the ability to program your creatures. The game features a 30-mission single-player campaign that lets you get used to combat before you take your creations online to face real opponents. Winning gets you rewards like new attacks, paint colors, and other fun stuff.

Might & Magic: Showdown is now in Steam Early Access for $ 20.

Arms Brings Motion-Controlled Boxing To Nintendo Switch This Spring

It's not quite Punch-Out!!, but one of the first-announced games for the Nintendo Switch certainly channels its spirit, albeit with a long-range twist.

Arms is a fighting game played on a small three-dimensional field. Holding the Switch Joycon controllers in a thumbs-up position, players make punching motions with their hands to throw punches at each other from a distance. Each character's arms stretch to hit opponents from afar, similar to Dhalsim in Street Fighter. You can thrust the controller forward to do a straight, or twist it sideways to do a hook, which will catch opponents on the move more easily.

The game looks to offer much more mobility than Nintendo's last boxing title (the subgame in Wii Sports), however. Players can move by titling the Joycons, dash around the map and guard at will, and press the Joycon's shoulder buttons to jump.

Arms also looks to feature several character with different movesets. Along with Spring Man and Ribbon Girl, the game's first trailer showed off a few other characters, including a woman in a yellow mech suit. Each character also looks to have a special attack, which look to vary between characters. Spring Man's for example, launched a volley of blows in short succession.

You'll be able to play the game solo against computer opponents, split-screen using two sets of Joycons, and using two Switch consoles locally. Arms is set to release this Spring. – The Feed

Mod Brings Multiplayer To Just Cause 3′s Chaotic Open World

Just Cause 3 is best known for giving players the ability to rambunctiously cause havoc and destruction in its large sandbox world. Now, thanks to a multiplayer mod that recently released, you can go on a rampage with a group of friends.

The mod, titled JC3:MP, can hold up to 100 players on its servers, so that you can explore Medici cooperatively with friends, or go against them competitively in races and deathmatches. On the mod's official website, the team describes the multiplayer addition as such: "Our modification opens the door to incredible multiplayer possibilities including racing, deathmatch, skydiving, roleplaying or free-roam."

Last month, JC3:MP was released as a beta, and you can view the trailer for it below. It is now available in full for download via the modder's website. While this is the official release, some bugs are still in the process of being fixed.

Just Cause 2 also received a multiplayer mod by an entirely different group of modders, who were also planning to make a multiplayer rendition for Just Cause 3. However, after the lead creator Cameron Foote was hired by developer Avalanche Studios to work on the Just Cause series itself, this modder group canceled the project.

JC3:MP is created by Nanos GbR, and while it is not available on Steam Workshop at this time, you can download the PC mod here. You can also check out our glowing review for Just Cause 3.
