Fortnite adds outfits that can be wrapped like weapons: How to use them

Epic has announced a big new feature for its battle royale game Fortnite: wrappable outfits. With this new style, players are able to apply their existing and future wraps to their outfits in the same way they can wrap weapons and vehicles. The new ability includes support for wrapping pickaxes and back bling, too. Your existing Fortnite outfits can’t be wrapped, so don’t get too excited. Instead, Epic is introducing new wrappable outfits in the game’s Item Shop, including plans to add more styles in the future. Players can purchase a wrappable outfit, then restyle it using their existing wraps. Wrap you...

Sony leaks PS Plus August 2021 games and they include cartoon zombies

Sony accidentally leaked its PlayStation Plus game lineup for August 2021, and though the company has already deleted its premature posting, the Internet managed to grab all of the details. The lineup includes three games, according to the leak, only one of which is notable…and it involves cartoon zombies. Every month, Sony offers a few games for free, but only to customers who have signed up for its PlayStation Plus service. You need this subscription to play online multiplayer games in most cases, which is an extra fee that many still criticize, so the free games are offered as an incentive to soften the blow. Sony m...

Jurassic World Evolution 2 just revealed some major changes

There are no lack of Jurassic Park fans out there who would love to see a proper theme park simulation based on the franchise, and while 2018’s Jurassic World Evolution got us close to that point, it didn’t quite get us close enough. At E3 2021 earlier this summer, Frontier revealed that it’s working on Jurassic World Evolution 2, and today, we learned about some of the big changes that will be implemented in the game. If there was one consistent complaint among the Jurassic World Evolution fanbase, it’s that the first game didn’t really go as deep as players were hoping. As a whole, the game de...

Are Apex Legends: Emergence trailers better than the game?

Watching the latest Apex Legends: Emergence launch trailer, we’ve got to ask – are these trailers so well made that they eclipse the game? This trailer features the song “Ghost” performed by Marvin Brooks and remixed by 2WEI, and it’s another masterpiece. Much like the launch trailers that’ve shown the various new characters and layers of the game in the past few years, this trailer makes the game look like a brilliant work of art – because the trailer itself is a brilliant work of art. And it’s not even the full trailer – it’s a teaser for the “gameplay trailer” that’ll ta...

How to claim Zeraora in Pokemon Unite

Pokemon Unite landed on Nintendo Switch this week, allowing players to go head-to-head in 5v5 battles similar to those found in MOBAs like League of Legends or Dota 2. While Pokemon Unite is a good amount more casual than either of those games, picking the right Pokemon for the job is still an important thing to consider. You’ll need to purchase Pokemon with various forms of in-game currency before you can use them in battle, but Pokemon Unite does start you off with some freebies. Until August 31st, one of those freebies is the mythical Pokemon Zeraora. Zeraora is one of the launch promotions Tencent and The Pokemon C...

Tokyo 2020 Olympics Opening Ceremony had a video game surprise

The Tokyo 2020 Summer Olympics have officially kicked off, albeit a year late and without live spectators. Gamers who watched the Opening Ceremony of the event and the Parade of Nations were greeted by something they probably weren’t expecting: a soundtrack filled with video game music. Many took to Twitter to call out songs they were familiar with as tracks from games like Sonic the Hedgehog and Dragon Quest played during the event. While it was surprising at first to hear video game music at the Olympics, it makes a lot of sense when you think about it. After all, Japanese studios have a long history of making games ...

Shiny Pokemon GO event today: Cranidos, Shieldon, Dialga, Porygon

Starting today, the 23rd of July, 2021, Pokemon GO has an event running courtesy of the Ultra Unlock series during Pokemon GO Fest 2021. The first event is Ultra Unlock Part 1: Time, and it runs from today until August 3, 2021, at 8PM local time. The idea here is that Pokemon from what appear to be “various eras” will pop up in the wild, in raid battles, and in 7km eggs. That means we’ve got everything from Omanyte (ancient, very old), to Porygon (super futuristic). The Shiny Pokemon potential in this event is massive. New Shiny Pokemon include Shiny Cranidos, Shiny Rampardos, Shiny Shieldon, and Shiny Ba...
