Mario’s wardrobe is getting updated again, with a baseball uniform and a somewhat obscure reference to Nintendo’s Japanese Super Famicom add-on, the Satellaview outfit. Satellaview was a satellite modem that allowed players to download games to their console during a specific time slot using the satellite radio service of Nintendo’s then-partner, St. GIGA.

New special outfits have been added to the post-game shop in #SuperMarioOdyssey: Satellaview Suit & Helmet and Baseball Uniform & Batting Helmet! pic.twitter.com/gNakmxexfY Continue reading…Powered by…

Chief among those monstrosities are the Juggernauts, towering mountains of flesh and hunger that Undead Labs’ CEO Jeff Strain calls, “community enders.” To put that into context, in State of Decay 2, you don’t play a single character, but rather a collective of survivors. When one person dies,…

Rainbow Six Siege’s weapons will have their recoil patterns corrected in an upcoming update, Ubisoft announced today. Bullets fired from many weapons, especially fully automatic weapons, currently “diverge from where the reticle is pointing,” a blog post explains. With the new recoil system, which will initially roll out on the next Siege test server session, Ubisoft is targeting “a clean, tight shooting system that does not cheat players out of a great show of skill, or on the contrary, register a headshot when the player is aiming at the torso.” As-is, bullets don’t always land at the tip of your…
