It doesn't seem like Fallout 76 will ever catch a break, as even something as simple as patching out an exploit to stop item duplication is just a precursor to another shoe dropping. From a story... posted by Eurogamer, it appears that there are other ways to get items in the game: by finding the secret developer room and just taking them from their infinite supply. Developer rooms are usually spaces within a game where the developers can test various things or store objects not in use. It basically provides a scalable space to experiment while making the game.

When people eventually got there, they found every blueprint in the game and a single human NPC, the only...

Sony has released their lists of the most downloaded games of 2018 across multiple categories, and while you can probably guess the winners in most fields (you've probably downloaded them!), there are... few surprises here. It should come as no surprise that Fortnite: Battle Royale is the most downloaded free-to-play game on the service, as it's the video game of our time. And while Red Dead Redemption 2 seemed to have more excitement behind it leading up to launch, Black Ops 4 reigns supreme when it comes to sales, meaning the lack of a campaign didn't deter as many people from buying it as a battle royale encouraged them. Meanwhile, the most popular VR game on the platform is Job Simulator, followed by Beat Saber. Sony also released a few less obvious categories. The most popular Vita game...

Fighting games had a marquee year in 2018, as a mix of fantastic callbacks, fun single-player modes, and outstanding tournaments kept the genre a bigger talking point than it's been in a long time.... And for the first time, we're giving fighting games their own genre awards! Here are our picks for which games moved the genre forward or redefined old ground throughout the year.

Destiny 2's first major update since their announced split with publisher Activision is coming soon, and it's shaking up how we think about the current supers meta. The big focus of the update, which... hits January 29, is supers and subclass abilities. Most notably, the damage of the two most notorious super abilities in Forsaken right now, the Warlock's Nova Warp and the Hunter's Blade Barrage supers, are getting toned down and made harder to use. Nova Warp, which allows Warlocks to make short-distance teleports around the map and cause large, deadly explosions, has had its movement speed slowed down, its damage reduced in the Crucible (it won't be able to kill players during their own supers if that super provides damage resistance), and each explosion uses up more super energy, reducing...
