For decades now, Harmonix has brought a very particular set of skills to the gaming audience – finding ways to share the joy of music-making with players, even if those players have never picked up the instrument(s) in question. Time and again, the studio manages to find the thrill and wonder inherent to a particular corner of the musical world, and translate that into something approachable and fun. With Fuser, the developers behind Amplitude, Guitar Hero, Rock Band, and Dance Central have zeroed in on the festival dance music scene. I’ve never spun records as a DJ. I’ve never even attended a big outdoor music festival. And yet Fuser is everything I want as an escape from the doldrum and frustration of 2020, offering one of the most creative and technically remarkable opportunities for musical expression I’ve encountered in a game.

Beyond Light has the feel of a turning point. In a long-running living game with many expansions and seasons to its name, Destiny 2 is always changing, but this installment feels different. The past and future of the franchise rotate around this release, which clears away much of the old and sets the stage for new story and gameplay beats. Like a tree that needs to get pruned back to allow for healthy growth, it also means that Beyond Light’s release leaves the game looking especially barren. Even as I’m excited to discover new powers and activities, the breadth of the overall experience has been … Read the rest

We are so thrilled to have Swimsanity! as part of Games with Gold this month. We want to thank everyone who has played so far and are excited to talk about what to expect from us the rest of the way.

Update 3.0

First and foremost, the community boost we got from Games with Gold has been amazing. We are excited to make this launch even better with our next Update 3.0. We experienced a good amount of server issues as this is by far and understandably the busiest the servers have been since launch. Those issues should be resolved in the coming update which address things like match drops, adventure online blocks when a player drops, invisible enemies, online camera issues and more. We hope this is the patch needed to make online play as seamless as local play.

The Winter update for Animal Crossing: New Horizons is here and gives players a chance to increase that needed house storage. For those with Big Time Plans for those islands, here is how you can increase your house storage in New Horizons. 

How to increase your house storage in Animal Crossing: New Horizons

Look, I’m not here to judge. The house storage in Animal Crossing: New Horizons is a lot, but if you went to your limit already? It’s OK, boo, we’re here to help. With so many events happening back-to-back with new DIY recipes, new characters to impress, and creativity expanding, it’s pretty easy to reach max capacity. Luckily, you can increase that house storage if needed. 

The previous limit for storage was set for 1600 items, but the new Winter update has upgraded that to 2400. So how do you get that 2400 … Read the rest

Assetto Corsa Competizione has been on quite the journey since launch earlier this year and rest assured, we’re far from done! The development team have been working behind the scenes to bring all new content to the sim racing world and I’m here today to tell you more on what’s to come.

An Intro for Rookie Racers

If you’re new to the title, let me fill you in on some things to know. Assetto Corsa Competizione is the Official GT World Challenge game and features iconic tracks such as Silverstone, Monza, Hungaroring, and Spa-Francorchamps. To ensure each track offers the most realistic experience possible, each circuit has been carefully reproduced using Laser Scan technology, in GT cars that have been developed in close collaboration with manufacturers such as Ferrari, Mercedes, Porsche, Lamborghini and McLaren.

Alongside the base game, the team have been working on multiple DLC expansions, including the GT4 Read the rest

Rick and Morty are no strangers to video games. They play the life simulator Roy in an episode of the show on Adult Swim, and they have even starred in their own VR experience (though I didn’t love it). But the dimension-hopping duo’s latest contribution to the gaming industry is a new ad for the PlayStation 5.

Rick and Morty bring their signature brand of humor to the spot, making it clear multiple times that they are only saying what they’ve been paid to say. Even so, it’s still an entertaining little bit for fans of the show to enjoy. Plus, the irreverent tone is a fun change from other PS5 commercials we’ve seen so far. See the ad in the tweet below:
