Happy Chaos Goes Guns Blazing in Guilty Gear Strive, Out 30th November – Push Square

Published

 on


Guilty Gear Strive is getting its third DLC character on the 30th November for season pass owners, and the 3rd December for everyone else. And, as many predicted, it’s Happy Chaos — the, er, chaotic gunslinger from the game’s story mode. He looks especially tricky in this first glimpse at gameplay. For those who might not know, Happy Chaos has never appeared in previous Guilty Gear titles, so it’ll be interesting to see what he’s capable of.

Strive’s first season of DLC will wrap up with two additional characters in 2022. We assume that at least one of them will be a returning fighter, so start praying for your old mains in the comments section below.

‘Fortnite’ Spider-Man Web Swinging Is Better Than Avengers’ Spider-Man Web Swinging – Forbes

Published

 on


Fortnite has just debuted a new Chapter, and with it, they landed one of the most famous superheroes ever to lead their new season: Spider-Man.

Spider-Man rests at the end of the battle pass as a reward, but this is not the only place he’s shown up in the last week or so. He was also added to Marvel’s Avengers, the superhero looter, as a PlayStation exclusive character.

In many ways, it seems like Avengers got the short end of the stick when it comes to their deal with Sony to use Spider-Man in the game. The deal limits them to providing Spider-Man to only one portion of their playerbase, PlayStation players, splitting the game and annoying fans, while Fortnite Spider-Man is accessible through that season for all platforms, PlayStation, Xbox, Switch and PC.

Past that, it’s clear that Sony limited what kinds of costumes Crystal Dynamics was allowed to make for Avengers Spider-Man. By far the most common request was for the black symbiote suit, which the game doesn’t have. But guess what’s the page 10 reward for the Spider-Man costume in Fortnite? The symbiote variant, with other recognizable costumes to follow.

Not all of this is on Sony, however. Some things are just flat out better in Fortnite, like the overall character design I’d say. But what’s most noticeable is the difference in web-swinging between the two games. You can compare them below.

Fortnite:

And here’s Avengers:

I spoke with Crystal Dynamics who talked about why they decided to let Spider-Man latch on to thin air on their maps, in order to prevent him from running on the ground in many of the game’s wide open spaces. I can understand that, but it’s more than that, as swinging is just a lot choppier and more static than what players got used to in Insomniac’s game, and now, what we’re seeing here in Fortnite.

Fortnite makes use of grappling-hook like physics and momentum. But in Avengers, there’s no momentum or speed build up, it’s a much more simplified traversal tool.

To be fair, web-swinging was essentially all Fortnite had to focus on with Spider-Man, making the new gadget which can be used to swing by all players. Avengers had the task of creating a full combat kit for Spider-Man, and I do actually think they did a good job and he’s a lot of fun. But it’s hard to avoid the comparison about web-swinging entirely, and how weirdly good it is in Fortnite compared to Avengers.

Spider-Man will get more costumes in Avengers, possibly MCU variants and maybe even the symbiote suit someday. Fortnite Spider-Man will get more looks as well, and technically, his web gloves weren’t supposed to go live for another week or so, and we’ll see how they work once they’re not accidentally activated then.

'The Matrix Awakens' is an Unreal Engine 5 demo you can preload today – Yahoo Movies Canada

Published

 on


On December 9th, Epic Games will release The Matrix Awakens, an interactive tie-in to The Matrix Resurrections. You can preload the demo to your PlayStation 5 or Xbox Series X/S console ahead of its debut at The Game Awards. Epic built the experience using Unreal Engine 5, and you can see what the next-generation engine is capable of in a teaser the company shared today. “How do we know what is real?” asks a life-like Keanu Reeves partway through the clip.

It’s a rare movie experience that’s any good, but that might not matter with The Matrix Awakens. For most people, this will be their first chance to see UE5 in action. Epic previewed the latest iteration of its popular game engine part way through last year with a stunning PS5 demo that showed off what it could do. In May, the company released an early access version of UE5 to PC, but the system requirements meant most people couldn’t experience the Valley of the Ancient demo with the hardware they had.
