Legends of Runeterra is a brand new digital card game from Riot Games. It was just announced as part of Riot’s ten year anniversary stream (along with a number of other hugely exciting projects), and will give players a whole new look at the world of League of Legends, bringing many of its iconic champions to life in a whole new way. It’s hugely exciting, in other words, and there’s an awful lot to dig into. (You can even pre-register now!) My Legends of Runeterra overview and hands-on impressions are here, but that only covers some of what I learnt…

And while 2020 is already stacked with a lineup of promising games in the months before the next generation of consoles arrives, that also likely means a launch lineup with some new exciting games. With that in mind, while we’ve already asked you what unannounced PlayStation game sequel you’d like to see for PS5, we also know that the PS5 launch will likely include a wide swath of familiar and new, games meant to give us a reason to shell out hundreds of dollars for new equipment…

A beloved Pikachu design is making its way into Pokemon Sword and Shield through a Gigantamax transformation, a special kind form that gives certain Pokemon a unique design and move. Sure, Gigantamax forms for Charizard, Eevee, and Meowth were also revealed, but we’re just here for Pikachu. Why? Because it’s fat Pikachu. Watch the new Pokemon Sword and Shield trailer below; the chonkster Pikachu appears at the 00:23 mark: This wonderfully nostalgic design for Gigantamax Pikachu is far closer to how the iconic Pokemon looked at the start of the series. As shown in the art on the 1999 calendar…

Update 10/16: After getting over 860k likes on her Twitter post that simply asks “What’s fortnight,” Lady Gaga is at it again, now asking “. @Ninja who are you” – because it’s 2019, and the internet is an increasingly strange place. Ninja, of course, is a highly-popular Fortnite streamer and internet personality, who happened to have the most popular comment on Gaga’s initial post. Mother Monster is either having some fun with the internet, or was genuinely curious who this Ninja guy was. Regardless, Ninja was soon to reply to Gaga’s latest inquiry, writing “ask @Drake.” Continue reading…Powered by WPeMatico

The Outer Worlds, Obsidian’s upcoming sci-fi RPG, will only feature 4K enhancements on the Xbox One X. The PS4 Pro version of the game won’t get any extra licks of paint. Given that most games available on both Sony and Microsoft’s beefed-up consoles get some sort of enhancement, this is a surprising move. The PS4 Pro will be capped at 1080p resolution, while the Xbox One X will be able to play Outer Worlds in 4K. Publisher Private Division confirmed the news in a short statement to Windows Central, saying there’d be “no enhancements for PS4 Pro.” No official reasoning…

In an alternative universe, Google is the Apple of Android. People are counting down the days until the Pixel 4 goes on sale, and forums are filled with debates over how much better the square camera bump looks in person. The question isn’t over whether the Pixel 4 is worth its price tag, but which color and how much storage to get. And the lack of earbuds in the box is courageous, not cheap.In this reality, however, the Pixel 4’s price is just too damn high. Even though the rumors of a $100 price hike didn’t come to fruition, at…
