Destiny 2's newest event, the spring-themed Revelry, is here, and with it comes new loot to grab, along with another week to complete the Thunderlord quest. But if you're still working up to the new Power level cap of 700 in the Season of the Drifter, there's yet another Ascendant Challenge available to get you the Powerful gear you need. This week's challenge is the third of six that repeat in Forsaken. Here's where its portal is located and what to do inside.If you've done an Ascendant Challenge (or several at this point) before, you'll have an idea of how this goes. Start out by buying the appropriate bounty from Petra in the Dreaming City. Alongside that, you'll need a Tincture of Queensfoil. Once you consume that, you get the Ascendance buff that allows you to see the Taken portal--after you've found it.This particular portal is located in the Spire of Keres; you can see its location in the video above. Go through it to visit the Shattered Ruins in the Ascendant Plane, where are tasked with climbing a tower made of rocks without dying. Enemies will try to snipe you, and Taken rifts will try to boop you off the tower to your death. Be careful with where you move as you go toward the top; once you're there, kill the boss to complete the Ascendant Challenge.Your reward is a chest that may not have anything special inside, but you'll also complete the bounty you picked up from Petra. This offers a piece of Powerful gear, making it a task worth tackling. With the recently released Black Armory expansion, the Power cap for characters has been raised to 650, so it's definitely worth revisiting the Ascendant Challenge as you grind up to those new heights.As noted above, the prerequisite for doing an Ascendant Challenge--aside from access to the Dreaming City, which only comes after finishing the Forsaken campaign--is a Tincture of Queensfoil. These can be obtained through chests and Public Events in the Dreaming City, but that's not the only means.The video above details a location you can go to trade 50 Baryon Boughs, the planetary material you earn in the Dreaming City, for a Tincture of Queensfoil. If you're desperate to get your hands on one to try the Ascendant Challenge, follow our video guide to help you find your way to the spot where you can trade with Huginn.The Season of the Drifter brings two new activities--Gambit Prime, a tougher version of the Gambit competitive mode we've seen since Forsaken, and The Reckoning, a new pinnacle-level activity related to the Drifter. It also seems set to expand on the Drifter's story and what we saw in the last new activity in Destiny 2, The Draw. Stay tuned for more guides and coverage as we dig into the new content this week.Info from Gamespot.com

Earlier this month, Nintendo announced that two of Switch's best games, Super Mario Odyssey and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, will receive Labo VR support via free updates on April 25. The former will get a new VR mode that consists of a handful of mini-missions, while the latter will be playable almost entirely in VR. Now the company has shared a few more details on how that'll work.In a new post on the official Zelda website, Breath of the Wild technical director Takuhiro Dohta shed some more light on the game's upcoming Labo VR update. As previously confirmed, you'll be able to toggle the VR mode on or off at any time from the game's Options menu, even if you already have an existing save file. Once the option has been enabled, you'll need to insert the Switch console into the Labo VR Goggles to view the world of Hyrule in VR.The game's controls and content will remain the same whether you play in 2D or 3D, but you'll be able to move the in-game camera by looking around with the VR Goggles (although this can also be toggled off from the Options menu). Dohta recommends trying the VR mode "when there's something interesting to see, like a location with a great view, a favorite character, or a favorite piece of equipment."Dohta also shared some insight into how Breath of the Wild's VR update came to be. "The idea for this started when the Nintendo Labo development team gave us a demonstration of the VR Goggles for the first time," he wrote. "The experience was quite a surprise, and I started thinking that maybe we'd be able to do something with them in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild."First, we thought about lots of different things; locations that would be nice to see in VR, enemies that would be fun to fight… In the end, The Legend of Zelda development team reached the conclusion that, rather than change the game, we should let you play it as it is, and instead just make it so that you can use the VR Goggles to see whatever parts you want."The Nintendo Labo VR kit is available now. The package is available in two configurations. The full suite costs $80, while the Starter Set--which comes with the Labo VR game card and the materials to build the VR Goggles and Blaster Toy-Cons--retails for $40. The remaining Toy-Cons can be purchased in $20 expansion sets. You can read more about the kit in our Labo VR review.Info from Gamespot.com

Nintendo has announced Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order will release July 19. A Switch exclusive, The Black Order releases almost 10 years after its predecessor, Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2.There are currently 27 playable characters confirmed for The Black Order. The roster has been mostly pulled from the line-up of heroes that compose the Avengers, Guardians of the Galaxy, Defenders, Inhumans, and X-Men. However, there are a few outliers as well, such as Deadpool and Venom.The newest Marvel Ultimate Alliance game seems to be heavily inspired from the successes of recent Marvel movies. Although franchise veterans, such as Spider-Man, Wolverine, and Iron Man, return, they're joined by heroes never before seen in the series, like Falcon, Captain Marvel, Miles Morales, and Gwen Stacey. The main villains in Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3 are also Thanos and his Black Order--both of which played major roles in Avengers: Infinity War, and the former of which is the big bad in the upcoming Avengers: Endgame.Marvel Ultimate Alliance is an action role-playing game series that explores stories that involve dozens of heroes and villains from across Marvel's comics. In the first game, Nick Fury calls upon Captain America, Spider-Man, Thor, and Wolverine to respond to an attack from Dr. Doom and the Masters of Evil, a battle that ends with the four heroes calling upon all their known allies to join together as one task force in order to track the villainous organization down. Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2 sees that team divided over the course of a story that borrows elements from both Marvel's Secret War and Civil War comic books. It hasn't been revealed whether Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3 is a direct continuation of the series' overall story.You know what's also been about 10 years in the making? Avengers Endgame, which celebrated its imminent release with a brand-new trailer that recounts the greatest moments of the MCU, from 2008's Iron Man to 2019's Captain Marvel. If you're as excited for Endgame as we are, be warned: spoilers for the movie have leaked. Stay vigilant.Info from Gamespot.com

Epic Games has announced a new addition to Fortnite: Battle Royale. Called the Reboot Van, the feature allows you to bring back squadmates that have died in battle--similar to the respawn stations in Apex Legends.As part of Fortnite's next update, Reboot Vans and Reboot Cards will be added to the battle royale game. Upon death, squadmates will drop their Reboot Card, which can be used at a Reboot Van to respawn them."After a squadmate has been eliminated, grab their dropped Reboot Card and any surviving squadmates can activate it at a van," Epic Games community manager Nathan Mooney said in a video detailing the new respawn feature, which can be watched below. "Once activated, you'll definitely know, as a beacon and audio cue will be set off, informing nearby players to the reboot in progress and how many players will be arriving. You're squad will appear, one by one, on top of the van--ready to jump back into the match."Much like in Apex Legends, your teammates will respawn back into the match without their weapons or items. So, in order to be sure they aren't left completely helpless, it's in your best interest to have something on hand that you can drop for your revived allies. Upon respawning a player, the Reboot Van will temporarily deactivate, and only turn back online after a set period of time.The idea of respawning in Fortnite was first addressed in an Epic Games Reddit AMA in February 2019. "We've been considering this mechanic for a while and have been exploring it," an Epic producer said. "[We] want to make sure we give it the time it needs and fully understand its impact on the game as a whole. Look for further updates during Season 8." Season 8 started shortly thereafter, on February 28, and introduced pirate-themed content into Fortnite. The new Legendary skin for Season 8, Ruin, has just been revealed, and it can be unlocked in Week 8 by completing the season's weekly challenges.In our Fortnite review, Michael Higham gave the game an 8/10. The battle royale game is available on Xbox One, PS4, PC, Switch, and mobile.Info from Gamespot.com

We've all been there before--you purchased a new game, but after playing it for a while, realized it wasn't what you thought it was. Maybe it was too buggy, or lacked the features you had expected, or was just boring. Maybe you saw a really great deal somewhere else the next day. Regardless of the reason, most retailers won't allow you to return a game and get a refund once you've taken it out of the original packaging and played it--but a new GameStop policy will offer gamers a 48-hour window to do just that.According to a leaked document from a reputable source on Twitter, GameStop is launching a "Guaranteed to Love It" program where consumers can return a purchased game within 48 hours of the game's launch and receive a full refund in the form of store credit (not including tax). The program is limited to $60 standard-edition new releases, and any paid PowerUp Rewards membership bonuses will not apply. The game can be opened and played; it just has to be in good condition, and you must still have the receipt.The "Guaranteed to Love It" program will kick off with Days Gone, the upcoming open-world, survival-horror game from Bend Studio. Days Gone is scheduled to release exclusively for PS4 on April 26, so shoppers will get their first chance to test GameStop's new return policy as early as next week. If you decide you don't like the game, you'll have until April 28 to return it and receive $59.99 in store credit.It's likely GameStop will continue to test out this program with individual game releases before rolling it out to more games. There will obviously be those who make it a mission to finish a game and return it within 48 hours, so only time will tell whether GameStop continues this program long-term or makes it available to all standard-edition releases. We'll update this story when GameStop confirms the program and releases more details.And if you're considering picking up Days Gone now that you can try it with a 48-hour refund safety net, check out what we thought about the game after a hands-on session with it, as well as our interview with the developers on bringing the zombie genre to an open-world setting.Info from Gamespot.com

Across Crunchyroll, Funimation, Hidive, Netflix, Hulu, and VRV, there are over 30 new Spring 2019 anime premiering in the US. Understandably, it can be a little daunting to keep up with dozens of series just to find the handful worth watching. So to help, we've highlighted the eight that currently stand above the rest. In the following guide, we detail why each is worth keeping your eye on. They aren't ranked in any particular order.Spring 2019 continues several winter anime as well (such as The Rising of the Shield Hero), but for the purposes of this guide, we're only promoting series that premiered in April. As a reminder, the Spring 2019 season just started. So, for now anyway, this guide does not point to the anime we think are definitely the best for the season, just those that show the most promise.Demon Slayer: Kemetsu No YaibaWhere to watch: Crunchyroll, Funimation, VRVI have little doubt that Demon Slayer: Kemetsu no Yaiba will end up being the most watched series of Spring 2019. Not because I think it's the best this season, but because Demon Slayer does an excellent job fulfilling a void for anyone waiting on My Hero Academia Season 4. However, Demon Slayer has plenty to offer other than being based on an excellent Weekly Shonen Jump manga--especially in terms of its animation, voice acting, and story.Demon Slayer sees Tanjirō, the eldest son of a charcoal seller, arrive home one day to find his mother and four youngest siblings brutally slaughtered. Only his eldest younger sister, Nezuko, remains alive and she's barely breathing. Upon awakening, however, Nezuko grows fangs and talons, and her muscles nearly triple in size as she forces her older brother down and tries to eat him. Tanjirō is saved by a demon slayer, before being told by his savior that his sister has transformed into one of the monsters he now hunts. Despite this, Tanjirō protects Nezuko from being killed, vowing to help her keep a handle on her demonic impulses until he can find a way to make her human again.Fairy GoneWhere to watch: Funimation, HuluFairy Gone manages a fairly large expositional dump right at its start, but, thankfully, this anime doesn't waste too much of its first episode on world-building--finishing up with introductions of its compelling main cast and a taste of the show's explosive combat. Episode one earns brownie points for using CG for the fairies too. It makes them seem otherworldly in comparison to the drawn characters and backgrounds.An original anime that's not based on any preexisting literature or media, Fairy Gone takes place in a fantasy world where the War of Unification saw the rise of fairy soldiers, men and women bonded with fairies who can summon their magical partners in battle. After the war, society no longer needs the fairy soldiers, though. Some, like Veronica, turn to crime, while others, like Free, join a governmental task force charged with hunting down said criminals. When Veronica's childhood friend, Marlya, becomes bonded to an exceptionally powerful fairy and accidentally uses it illegally in public, she's given a choice: go to jail or join with Free in hunting down Veronica and similar criminals.We Never Learn: BokubenWhere to watch: Crunchyroll, Funimation, Hulu, VRVWe Never Learn: Bokuben stars Yuiga, a third-year high school student trying to obtain a scholarship that will allow his financially poor family to afford sending him to college. One day, he's told the scholarship is his, but only if he tutors the school's two notable geniuses--brilliant writer Furuhashi and mathematical prodigy Ogata--and successfully helps them get into the colleges of their choice. There's only one problem, Furuhashi wants to study physics and Ogata is only interested in liberal arts, and neither can get passing scores in the subjects they don't excel in. Things don't get any easier when Takemoto--a gifted athlete who struggles with schoolwork and has a secret crush on Yuiga--joins the study group.This anime largely works because Yuiga is a relatable dude. He isn't special, and solely gets good grades because he does his homework and studies hard. He treats his female peers with respect and consciously keeps things professional by drawing a line between them as tutor and pupil. He's an intelligent and nice person, which doesn't sound like all that much, but it's a breath of fresh air in comparison to basically every other harem anime protagonist ever.Hitoribocchi No MarumaruseikatsuWhere to watch: Crunchyroll, VRVHitoribocchi no Marumaruseikatsu is easy to love with its cute visuals, nonstop humor, and charming cast. Main character Hitori is incredibly shy--so much so that she's only ever had one friend. However, when said childhood friend learns the two of them will be attending different middle schools, she gives Hitori an ultimatum: befriend everyone in her new class or the two can't be friends anymore. It's a cruel promise, but it's one Hitori's friend seemingly doesn't make lightly. And it does work, as it pushes Hitori to try and befriend her new peers, even though she's terrified.The show is clearly designed to be more cute than a deep dive into the hardships of overcoming shyness, but that doesn't mean the anime can't be both. It's those moments in the first few episodes--when the show uses its cutesy humor to help you better understand the sheer discomfort an anxious person can feel when thrust into a new environment--that make this anime feel like it could end up being truly special.Fruits BasketWhere to watch: Crunchyroll, Funimation, VRVAlright fellas, I'm sure there's plenty of you who've heard of Fruits Basket before, and how the original 2001 anime is a cutesy story solely designed for and only enjoyed by women. That's complete and utter nonsense, and even more so in regards to the new reboot airing this season, which seemingly ditches a lot of the original anime's cute fluff for the original manga's more emotional tale. Fruits Basket may have been written with a female audience in mind, but its story of self-reliance, exclusion, and perseverance is one that everyone should experience.Fruits Basket is the story of the high school life of Tohru, a 16-year-old girl whose single mother dies in an accident. Not wanting to be a bother to extended family or friends, she gets a job and lives in a tent--only to discover she's made camp on the land of the Soma family. Upon befriending the family, she is invited to live with them, only to learn the Somas suffer a rather peculiar curse. Twelve members of the family are possessed by the spirits of the Chinese zodiac--with a thirteenth possessed by the cat spirit who didn't make the cut--and they transform into their zodiac animal whenever they are stressed or held by a member of the opposite sex.Cinderella NineWhere to watch: Crunchyroll, VRVThe protagonists of sports anime are almost always concerned with winning or being the best, so it's refreshing to see a series start out with the characters more concerned with just having fun. Not to discount other recent sports anime, but it's sometimes a little too mentally taxing to tune in every week and stress about whether or not the heroes are going to succeed. I still want to see the Cinderella Nine girls improve over time, but the first two episodes of the anime make it clear that this show is more about using baseball as an avenue for emotional and mental growth, not achieving victory.In Cinderella Nine, Arihara founds a baseball club at her new school after learning none exists. She's immediately joined by her best friend, and the two soon recruit two more girls: neither of whom have played baseball before. Arihara doesn't care though, simply happy the newcomers are curious about the sport. Watching the new girls learn to play and leave their first practice feeling better about themselves is one of the most wholesome things I've seen this season.UltramanWhere to watch: NetflixYou don't actually need to know the story of the original Ultraman to enjoy this sequel, as the important points from the original series are briefly outlined right at the start. Netflix's Ultraman picks up years afterwards, as Shin Hayata--the original Ultraman long past his prime--discovers his enhanced strength, speed, and durability has been passed down to his son, Shinjiro. When a new alien menace threatens the Earth, Shinjiro inherits his father's mantle as well, becoming the new Ultraman.Ultraman has a lot more nuance when it comes to the definition of a superhero in comparison to its predecessor. It makes sense, given the popularity of certain characters in the superhero genre post 1960s that have redefined the qualities an ideal hero should have. Being a hero means a lot more than beating up bad guys, and Ultraman focuses most of its season exploring Shinjiro's growth as a masked crimefighter. It's a shame many of the action scenes can't keep pace with the actual storytelling, but there's still quite a few cool-looking moments and nice callbacks to the original show.Kono Oto Tomare!: Sounds Of LifeWhere to watch: Funimation, HuluI know next to nothing about the koto--a Japanese stringed musical instrument--but it absolutely does not matter. For Kono Oto Tomare!: Sounds of Life, the instrument is merely the tool bringing the incredibly fleshed out cast together. The characters that make up that cast, and the growth they undergo, make this one of the most compelling anime series of the season. There's nothing else this spring I'm looking forward to watching more.Kono Oto Tomare!: Sounds of Life focuses on Kurata, the sole member of the Koto Club at his school. He's mercilessly bullied, until he is saved from his tormentors by a known delinquent named Kudō, who demands to join the Koto Club. Thinking he's being tricked into exchanging one set of bullies for another, Kurata initially refuses. However, upon learning Kudō's backstory, Kurata realizes he's misjudged his loud-mouthed peer and decides to trust him. Soon, other students join the Koto Club as well--each for their own reasons--and they all work together to grow as both musicians and people.Info from Gamespot.com

It's a blisteringly cold December day in Atlanta, Georgia, and I find myself sitting outside, watching something truly special. While it will be portrayed on-screen as a sunny day in California's San Fernando Valley, the set of Cobra Kai Season 2 was anything but warm when I arrived to watch former Miyagi-Do student Daniel LaRusso (Ralph Macchio) become the sensei he likely never expected to be.The scene that unfolded in front of me is a rather simple one. Daniel is in the backyard of Mr. Miyagi's home, which was painstakingly recreated by the show's production team in an Atlanta parking lot, teaching one of his new students. Given that he trained under Mr. Miyagi (Pat Morita) in the Karate Kid films, though, the only way he knows to teach kids karate is through chores.However, those are lessons from a different time. Now, as I sat in Miyagi's backyard while cameras rolled on LaRusso instructing a new student about how to sand the floor--"Left circle, right circle"--it hit me that even though Season 2 will bring Daniel full-circle in the same way Season 1 did Johnny Lawrence (William Zabka), the lessons he's imparting aren't exactly the same as the ones he learned from Miyagi. Instead, like the Daniel character itself, Miyagi-Do has evolved."As a teacher, he carries on the legacy of Miyagi; he does not in any way bend that. Sometimes it takes him seeing that through a different prism to be able to relay it to today's generation," Macchio told GameSpot. "Mr. Miyagi took Daniel in because Daniel needed him, where now Daniel is going out and trying to get kids to sign on, that's a different story--not so easy. Therein lies some of the hurdles he has to jump through in the first half of the season to attempt to build Miyagi-Do up and to show a better way in his mind."For the producers, LaRusso's story mimics Daniel's in many ways. As the character tries to live up to the image of his mentor, the actor is doing the same when it comes to how Morita brought Miyagi to life. "Playing that student all those years and having to step into the Mr. Miyagi role of Miyagi-Do Karate, it's challenging for [Daniel],” executive producer Josh Heald explains. “It's something that [Macchio] really wants to live up to as best he can to do Pat Morita's performance justice, just as Daniel LaRusso wants to live up to Mr. Miyagi.".Daniel's attempt to live up to the example set by his mentor isn't necessarily coming from a selfless place, though. "First, it's about taking down Cobra Kai and then the Miyagi-ism of it all is it's not about taking them down. It's about showing people a better way," he explained.While Season 1 showed that Johnny had matured in many ways and that his vision of Cobra Kai wasn't that of his former sensei Kreese (Martin Kove), he and Daniel were still constantly at odds. Even when, as adults, cooler heads should prevail, Daniel simply can't help himself in wanting to cut down his one-time foe, who Macchio refers to as his character's "kryptonite.""The toughest thing for Daniel, and it's been really interesting in playing the adult Daniel, is that he has this wisdom. He sees the direction. He's able to shed that upon his students," the actor explained. "But when his kryptonite is in the room, when Johnny Lawrence comes in or the Cobra Kai teachings begin to influence, he snaps back to that knee-jerk kid with a temper."The situation certainly isn't helped by the fact that Miyagi-Do is competing with a dojo in Cobra Kai that is infinitely cooler than one where the guy in charge tells you to do his yard work. "It's interesting, [Daniel] gains more students [and] he thought it would be a lot easier than it is because, in retrospect, when you go out there, Cobra Kai is a lot sexier looking than [Miyagi-Do]," Macchio jokes. "So it's tough to recruit, and you'll see [in] the first half of the season that's a big challenge for Daniel, as a guy who's found a great woman and a great family and a great business in the car dealerships. And yet he has every resource possible but it's not so easy to sell people on, 'You do these chores, [and] you're going to do some martial arts.'"As executive producer John Hurwitz explained it, this uphill climb was essentially in rebuilding Daniel after Season 1. "[With] Johnny Lawrence [in] Season 1, we did everything we could to tear that character down to the studs. You have no choice but to relate and be sympathetic to him because of everything he's been through whereas Daniel owns a car dealership, he's got a big house, he's got a nice family, [and] everyone's pretty well adjusted," he told GameSpot. "So the underdog thing happens when you least expect it because, just on the surface, Miyagi-Do Karate is not as sexy as Cobra Kai. You're not being asked to strike first, you're being asked to have a lot of patience and balance and a lot of these zen philosophies that make Miyagi-Do Karate not immediately the shiny new thing that every teenager in town can't wait to have."Those Miyagi-Do teachings, though, and the setting where Daniel passes them to the students he's able to gather, were especially emotional for Macchio, who's been living with this franchise for 35 years."I say at the end of Season 1, 'Welcome to Miyagi-Do Karate.' This is not a spoiler, but for me, when I was walking on that [Mr. Miyagi's house] set--even though it's a rebuild, it's not the place where we shot it 35 years ago--there were moments in scenes where I'm passing on those teachings, teaching him how to paint the fence and sand the deck or whatever," the actor remembered. "It got emotional in a way that I said to the guys, 'This is so strange because this is where all the magic happened.'"He continued, "I know this show is Cobra Kai. I know Cobra Kai is the angle into the world. Someone may beg to differ, but the heart and soul and magic of the franchise is with Pat. With Mr. Miyagi and that boy, that Daniel, that fish out of water character that needed that guidance to navigate his adolescence and the sheer soulful magic that happened... It was a little bit nostalgic for me to know that those days are in my past, [as] John Hamilton who directed that film and Pat Morita who starred in that film and Jerry Weintraub who produced that film are no longer with us."Even without them, though, their legacy is forever imprinted on this franchise, and there's no better proof of that than Daniel's Season 2 journey. After being portrayed as something of a villain in Johnny's Season 1 story, the original Karate Kid is doing exactly what his former foe did. He's trying to use the lessons he learned from martial arts to better the youth in his community. In doing so, maybe Daniel will realize he has more in common with Johnny than he'd like to believe. "Different, but same," as Mr. Miyagi would say.Cobra Kai Season 2 premieres Wednesday, April 24, on YouTube Premium.Info from Gamespot.com

Look, there are a lot of characters in the MCU--but apparently Twitter is pretty determined to make sure we remember absolutely all of them. The social network added not one, not two, but 40 new character specific hashtag emojis for Avengers: Endgame--and some of them were a bit of a surprise.The list of emojis includes all the heroes you'd expect, of course. Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, Black Widow, and Hawkeye/Ronin (that's right, Clint gets two) are all on the list, as well as Rocket, Nebula, Captain Marvel, War Machine, Okoye, and Ant-Man. But on top of the characters we've already seen represented in the trailers, there are also emojis for every hero who has been confirmed dusted, from Dr. Strange to the Winter Soldier and every Guardian of the Galaxy, as well as some unexpected throwbacks to some fan favorites.Thor: Ragnarok breakouts, the lovable revolutionary Korg and his knife-handed friend, Miek, both have their own emojis now. Red Skull got one under the name "Stonekeeper," as a nod to his surprise cameo in Infinity War. Marvel Studio's boss Kevin Fiege has one, for the hashtag "#MarvelStudios" and so does the Infinity Gauntlet itself, in addition to Thanos.Absolutely nobody got left behind this time around. Now let's all go spam #Korg to get him trending. It's what he deserves.In the meantime, we're officially a week out from Endgame's theatrical release so you might say we're in an Endgame of our very own. You've got less than ten days to start solidifying your theories (even the weird ones) so you'll have them in writing to prove to your friends you were right. If you double up on a few of them, you may even have time to re-watch every MCU movie between now and then--or, you can just watch the ones that matter.It's worth noting that, sadly, Endgame spoilers have leaked online, which means you'll need to be careful for if you want to enjoy the movie when it hits cinemas. We've put together a few tips on how you can avoid Endgame spoilers, which should be helpful. The Marvel subreddit has gone into lockdown while its moderators sift through posts and try and control the content of what's being posted to combat spoilers.

Apex Legends has a varied roster that bring their own unique set of skills to the intense battle royale. Though many of these heroes fall into the same archetypes you would expect from familiar online shooters, each character's abilities have a special twist to them that can open up some interesting strategies and dynamics within the squad. With every match yielding their own situational encounters and tense gunfights, you'll need to know the ins and out of your character to survive, while also knowing what to do should you cross paths with them on the field.In this quick guide, we're taking a look at the cunning, but somewhat insecure Mirage. His peculiar skill-set can create some bizarre encounters where you'll see double, allowing him and his squad the chance to get the upper hand. Though these skills seem basic at first glance, they can create some interesting opportunities for you and your squad, which can open the pathway to becoming a champion.The knowledge below will help steer you in the right direction, but with the introduction of a new weapon called Havoc, balancing is likely to change in the near future. Speaking of changes though, the game recently got updated with a new patch.For more breakdowns of different characters, and along with our full review and other guides focusing on some of the best weapons in the game, check out our further Apex Legends coverage on GameSpot.Other Character GuidesCaustic Guide: Tips On How To Be The Best Toxic TrapperGibraltar Guide: Tips On Playing As The Shielded FortressLifeline Guide: Tips On How To Be The Best Combat MedicPathfinder Guide: Tips On How To Be The Best Forward ScoutWraith Guide: Tips On How To Be A Dangerous BamboozlerBangalore Guide: Tips On Getting Kills As The Professional SoldierBloodhound Guide: Tips On Hunting Prey As The Technological TrackerGeneral OverviewKnown as the Holographic Trickster, Mirage is one of the two unlockable characters in Apex Legends, the other being Caustic. He brings with him advanced holographic technology that can create false-duplicates for tactical purposes. On the surface, many of his skills appear a bit too situational and unorthodox, however, in keeping with the gameplay loop of a battle royale game, Mirage is the type of character that knows how to mess with his enemy's focus--which can mean all the difference in an intense fight.With his slate of holographic skills, Mirage can disorient enemies and create additional pressure during fights. His primary tactical skill, known as Psyche Out, allows Mirage to create a holographic clone that runs ahead of him. At first glance, this double is indistinguishable from the real thing, which can cause other players to open fire. Mirage's decoy also display intelligence as well, and they act different depending on where they're deployed to. For instance, using one near a supply box will have the decoy perform an animation where they try to open it. Though many of these skills require certain circumstances to truly be effective, they are at their best when used in situations where you're uncertain of what lies ahead, or when you need to help your squad out by drawing fire away from enemies. However, it may take some time getting used to his abilities. With this in mind, here's a quick breakdown on how to his skills effectively.Mirage's AbilitiesPassive Skill: EncoreIf all else fails and you get got, Mirage's passive skill Encore will kick in. Once you get knocked down, you'll instantly turn invisible and a decoy will drop in your place, who performs an overly dramatic death animation. This will buy you some time to crawl away to safety. However, the skill won't last long. If you're still out in the open and an enemy is nearby, then you're a prime target to get gunned down.Tactical Skill: Psyche OutMirage's tactical ability Psyche Out allows you to send out a holographic decoy to confuse the enemy. It's a skill that has a surprising number of uses. In addition to drawing enemy fire in certain hot spots, allowing you to flank or get a bead on where a foe is hiding out, it's also a great skill to use for playing mind games. For instance, during the initial jump, you can send out decoys to landing spots, confusing enemy players into the thinking they're more active than they actually are.Ultimate Skill: Vanishing ActThe Ultimate ability Vanishing Act is essentially a combination of Mirage's Passive and Tactical skills. When activated, Mirage will turn invisible and let a team of holograms distract the enemy for him. The skill is a great way to confuse enemies, who will likely lose track of which Mirage is the real one. This can be especially handy during tough fights in crowded spaces. Some of the best uses of Vanishing Act come when used to bail on fights that your squad is outmatched for or when you need to get the jump on enemies during a fight. However, there is a certain clue that can help enemy players keep track of the real Mirage. When you turn invisible, you'll leave a silhouette and can take damage. If the enemy can stay focused on any sudden movement, then they can still hit you with their shots.Tips To PlayMirage's greatest strength in battle is his ability to disorient enemies and shake up a fight. With his holographic skills, he can easily disrupt a fight by using his holograms, which also gives him and his squad some time to breathe. Right at the beginning of the match, once you and your squad make the jump, he can pull off some interesting tricks on other teams. While dropping from the ship, Mirage can send out up to two different holograms on the field. This can cause other teams to panic while in mid-flight, changing their course in order to avoid any possible fights when they're on the ground.Once you make it to the ground, Mirage is best used when keeping his skills close to the vest. Unlike other support characters, his abilities aren't handy with only his squad around. However, once things start to go down, when you inevitably cross paths with an enemy team, this is where Mirage can shine. If you get the sense that an enemy team is nearby, you can send out hologram to act as a probe, provoking any gunfire from enemies. While in the moment, it's difficult to tell what's the real Mirage or a hologram, and they'll likely open fire on-sight.Just like every other character, Mirage can carry his weight in a fight with any weapon he can get his hands on. However, given his trickster oriented skill-set, you may be better off using weapons that focus on long-range, such as the Longbow or Triple Take sniper-rifles. Once you toss out a decoy, you'll likely see enemies fire at the hologram, which will either give you a clue as to where they are--or if you're lucky--an opening if they decide to come run out to investigate.Mirage has a pretty peculiar skill-set, but in the hands of a patient, and decisive player, he can be an effective squadmate to have. Even before touching the battlefield, he can cause panic amongst the enemy teams, which can make for an impressive start for matches.Info from Gamespot.com

Confirming rumors and reports, Microsoft announced a new Xbox subscription offering on its latest Inside Xbox livestream. The company is launching a new subscription package on Xbox One that bundles Xbox Live Gold and Xbox Game Pass together. It's called Xbox Game Pass Ultimate and costs $15 USD/month.This is the full version of Xbox Live Gold, which itself already includes access to free games every month with Games With Gold, in addition to the ability to play games online and access other network features.Xbox Game Pass is Microsoft's all-you-can-play offering that provides access to a library of more than 100 Xbox One and backward-compatible Xbox 360 titles. Also, many of Microsoft's newest games are immediately available on Game Pass. This was the case for Sea of Thieves and Crackdown 3. If you already have an existing membership, Microsoft says you'll be able to apply that value to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate. The company also notes that you won't be required to upgrade to Game Pass Ultimate if you don't want to; you'll be able to keep your current Xbox Live Gold or Game Pass subscription as-is.Xbox Game Pass Ultimate is available now to a "limited number" of Xbox Insiders. The service is slated to launch in full later this year in all markets where Xbox Game Pass is offered.In other news, Microsoft announced an all-digital Xbox One S called the Xbox One S All-Digital Edition--here's everything you need to know.Info from Gamespot.com

Apex Legends developer Respawn is aware of the interest among fans in a Nintendo Switch version of the battle royale game, but it might not happen--or it might. Respawn isn't ready to say just yet. Project lead Drew McCoy told Wired that the studio is working on "a lot of things" right now, but there is nothing to announce yet about a Switch edition."If Switch was coming, we would tell you, and we would blast it across the world. We are hearing all the Switch players who say they want the game," he said. "I can't make any promises right now. We have a lot of things that we're working on, so stay tuned for anything in the future. But currently we don't have anything to announce."McCoy's wording is interesting. He never outright says it won't happen, or even that there are no plans. He's saying that Respawn has nothing to announce right now. This is very far from a confirmation that Apex Legends is coming to Switch, however.Apex Legends is available on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.Switch players aren't without any battle royale games, of course, as Epic's Fortnite is available on the console. Tetris 99 is also on Switch, while Crazy Justice has been announced for Switch.In addition to ongoing support for Apex Legends, Respawn is just about to reveal its Star Wars game, Jedi Fallen Order, this weekend at Star Wars Celebration. The studio is also working on a new Titanfall experience to launch this year, while the team has an Oculus Rift game also in development.Would you like to see Apex Legends come to Switch?

Confirming earlier reports and leaks, Microsoft has officially announced an all-digital Xbox One console that has no disc drive. The Xbox One S All-Digital Edition, as it's called, launches on May 7 and it's priced at $250 USD.According to Xbox executive Jeff Gattis, the consumer demand for digital content is "stronger today than ever before," and the new, all-digital Xbox One is a response to that."Gaming and technology have changed quite a bit since the first Xbox debuted in 2001. During this time, we've seen a digital transformation across gaming, music, TV, and movies," Gattis said. "The Xbox One S All-Digital Edition was created for those who prefer to find and play their games digitally and are looking for the most affordable way to play Xbox games."The All-Digital Edition comes with Minecraft, Forza Horizon 3, and Sea of Thieves, all of which are developed or published by Microsoft. They're meant to showcase titles that are more family-friendly. Additionally, the console comes with a "special offer" for Xbox Game Pass, which is Microsoft's all-you-can-play Xbox game subscription service.The box for the Xbox One S All Digital Edition.The lack of a disc drive means the console doesn't support DVDs or Blu-ray discs, but Microsoft says people can still experience 4K content through Netflix, Amazon, and other destinations. The form factor is the same, and the all-digital Xbox One has the same functionality as the standard Xbox One S. It just cannot play game discs or disc-based media."It shares the same dimensions as an Xbox One S to help maintain the most affordable price point in the Xbox One family of devices, especially since changes that affect the form of a console can be complex and costly," Gattis says.In terms of specs, the Xbox One S All-Digital Edition is in-line with the Xbox One S, which means that while it cannot handle native 4K resolutions for games like the Xbox One X, it is capable of displaying games with HDR support. Take a look at the specs below:1TB HDD8-core Custom Jaguar CPU @ 1.75GHzCustom GPU @ 914 MHz12 CUs1.4 TFLOPS8 GB DDR3 @ 68 GB/s32 MB ESRAM @ 218 GB/sRegarding the $250 USD price point, Microsoft pointed out that it's $50 USD less than the standard Xbox One S. That is true, but that console is almost always on sale. For example, Best Buy has the 1 TB Xbox One S with a copy of The Division 2 for $250 USD right now. Some were expecting the all-digital Xbox One to start at $200.Whatever the case, Microsoft said it expects to maintain at least a $50 price difference between the all-digital Xbox One S and standard Xbox One S going forward. There is no word yet on if Microsoft will ever offer an all-digital Xbox One X. "The Xbox One S All-Digital Edition is designed to make console gaming more accessible to more people, especially for new customers that don't already own a console and want access to the complete Xbox experience without investing in one of our other options, Xbox One X or Xbox One S," Gattis says.The all-digital Xbox One S is a big deal. It is believed that Microsoft considered launching the Xbox One without a disc drive back in 2013, but that never happened. The new model is Microsoft's first gaming console without a disc drive, and one of the first across the entire industry to lack one. Sony launched the all-digital PSP Go in 2009 but discontinued it just two years later.Importantly, the all-digital Xbox One S is just one console in the Xbox One family of devices. Due to internet availability and speed, this console won't be feasible for some people. Microsoft will keep making Xbox One consoles with disc drives, and the company is rumored to announce its next-generation systems at E3 in June."The benefits of the Xbox One S All-Digital Edition is that it offers value and choice to customers that prefer the conveniences of an all-digital library," Gattis says. "Given this is the first product of its kind, it will teach us things we don't already know about customer preferences around digital and will allow us to refine those experiences in the future. We see this as a step forward in extending our offerings beyond the core console gamer and continuing our journey to reach more than 2 billion gamers worldwide."Part of the appeal of having a disc, apart from the way it feels to physically hold and own something, is that it has some amount of trade-in value. In an all-digital future, trade-ins do not exist. The retailer GameStop, for example, historically has relied on pre-owned sales to drive its business, so it'll be interesting to see how that store responds.Gattis says retailers like GameStop and others "play a critical role" in the overall gaming ecosystem. "We work closely with retailers to ensure that our products are mutually beneficial for our business and theirs and in general, retailer reception to the Xbox One S All-Digital Edition has been positive so we're pleased to be able to provide a variety of choice to meet our customers' needs, whether they're looking to purchase this new all-digital console or digital content cards at a physical retail store," Gattis says.Are you interested in this disc-free Xbox One S?
