The development team recently kicked off the new Pokemon Go Global Catch Challenge, and if players can manage to capture enough creatures by this Sunday, the studio will disperse the Flying-type Pokemon Farfetch'd out into the wild.</p> <p>This won't exactly be a small task: the number of captured creatures required to unlock Farfetch'd is set at 3 billion. Billion. Fortunately, good progress has already been made: as of yesterday, just over one billion creatures had already been captured. Considering that progress was made since early Monday morning, players definitely still have a chance to pull in big numbers.</p> <blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"> <p>Congratulations, Trainers! You&rsquo;ve already caught over 1 billion Pok&eacute;mon during the Global Catch Challenge! <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/PokemonGOtravel?src=hash&amp;ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">#PokemonGOtravel</a> <a href="https://t.co/pXC6TCgFKi">pic.twitter.com/pXC6TCgFKi</a></p> &mdash; Pok&eacute;mon GO (@PokemonGoApp) <a href="https://twitter.com/PokemonGoApp/status/933262281898475520?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">November 22, 2017</a></blockquote> <p> <script async="" src="https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script> </p> <p>And, in the totally-plausible case players don't quite reach 3 billion captured creatres, Niantic is still willing to provide other bonuses: 500 million overall catches &mdash; a goal that has already been met &mdash; will unlock a temporary double XP bonus and six-hour Lures, while 1.5 million captures will unlock both of the previous bonuses as well as double Stardust.</p> <div class="articleImage full" style="width: 700px;"><img src="https://s3-us-west-1.amazonaws.com/shacknews/assets/editorial/2017/11/pokemon-go-farfetchd-global-catch-challenge.png" alt="" width="700" height="525" /></div> <p>Assuming players can work together and capture 3 million creatures by the Sunday deadline, Farfetch'd will be made available worldwide for just 48 hours, with Kangaskhan being unlocked in East Asia for the same time period. It's not immediately clear whether or not East Asian territories will also be getting Farfetch'd in addition to Kangaskhan, but either way, it's likely that Pokemon Go players will still have their hands full trying to capture the rare creature before it disappears.</p> <p><iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/-Gptp_ui-Sg" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen="allowfullscreen"></iframe></p> Wed, 22 Nov 2017 17:20:00 PST Kevin Tucker The Best PC Gaming Cyber Monday 2017 Deals http://www.shacknews.com/article/102221/the-best-pc-gaming-cyber-monday-2017-deals http://www.shacknews.com/article/102221/the-best-pc-gaming-cyber-monday-2017-deals <p>Cardholding members of the Shacknews elite know that PC gaming is all about power, flexibility, and variety. There's no system that quite does everything that a solid PC gaming rig can do, and that's one of the many reasons why we love them. Of course, unlike with many consoles, there's always room for improvement and upgrades, and this Black Friday we got a look at many great ways that PC players could score some great new components and accessories without sending their bank accounts into oblivion. Black Friday is only the start of the fun, however, as Cyber Monday is fast approaching, and major retailers are gearing up for the annual online shopping event that's become widely-known for offering some of the biggest deals on PC technology.</p> <h2>The Best Cyber Monday 2017 Deals On PC Gaming Hardware, Components, And Accessories</h2> <p>Not every retailer out there has had the chance to show off all of their available Cyber Monday discounts, but we know a guy, so to speak, and word on the street is that many of the hottest items from this year's Black Friday sales event will see similar discounts come the following Monday. Here are the top deals to look out for this Cyber Monday.</p> <hr /> <div class="articleImage full" style="width: 700px;"><img src="https://s3-us-west-1.amazonaws.com/shacknews/assets/editorial/2017/11/amazon-black-friday-2017-deals-2.jpg" alt="" width="700" height="197" /></div> <p><strong>Amazon</strong>:</p> <p>While Amazon still hasn't yet provided buyers with a list of their Black Friday deals, we do expect that the online retailer will be offering up many of the items listed at other stores at discounted prices. Amazon is famous for its Black Friday Lightning Deals that offer insane savings in small time windows. Most of these deals are not announced beforehand, so you&rsquo;ll want to check in regularly during the day for a chance to grab the hottest deals on PC Hardware or accessories.</p> <p>&bull; <a href="https://www.amazon.com/Cooler-Master-MasterKeys-Mechanical-Keyboard/dp/B072C516B9/?shack0a-20">Coolermaster MasterKeys L Mechanical Keyboard w/ brown switches </a>- <strong>$69.99 </strong>after rebate<br />&bull;&nbsp;<a href="https://www.amazon.com/Dell-S2417DG-24-Inch-LED-Lit-Monitor/dp/B01IOO4SGK/?shack0a-20" target="_blank">Dell S2417DG 24-inch G-Sync Monitor</a> - <strong>$379.99 </strong>($190 discount)<br />&bull;&nbsp;<a href="https://www.amazon.com/EVGA-GeForce-Support-Graphics-03G-P4-6162-KR/dp/B01KU2CIIY/?shack0a-20" target="_blank">EVGA GeForce GTX 1060 3GB</a> - <strong>$189.99</strong><br />&bull;&nbsp;<a href="https://www.amazon.com/G-SKILL-RIPJAWS-KM780R-Mechanical-Keyboard/dp/B0186W6PMK/?shack0a-20" target="_blank">G.Skill RGB Mechanical Keyboard w/ red switches</a> - <strong>$99.99 </strong>($40 discount)<br />&bull;&nbsp;<a href="https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01B9IDLAW/?shack0a-20" target="_blank">LG 29UM68-P 29" Ultrawide IPS Monitor</a> &mdash;

Whatever your stance on the Battlefront II micro-transaction saga, it&rsquo;s hard to defend EA&rsquo;s sloppiness in handling the matter. Sure, yes, they&rsquo;re most definitely listening to fan feedback, but it's hard to applaud them for that considering the fact they&rsquo;re going to flip that switch back on in (presumably) a few weeks. Also, this whole situation was likely avoidable to begin with.</p> <p><iframe width="100%" height="200" frameborder="0" scrolling="no" src="https://embed.radiopublic.com/e?ge=s1!49925129cd9fe70108078ceaa5aa4b5ebe09eabb&amp;if=the-cartridge-family-Wk233m&amp;referrer=https:%2F%2Fcartridgefam.com%2Fmedia%2F974c49121c6f2f115fb3f3e77faf7194%3FpostId%3D1c15974ff954"></iframe></p> <p>Besides the Star Wars stuff, the fam is focused on the usual: this episode kicks off with some of the latest releases in gaming, followed by our thoughts on EA, a quick discussion about Nintendo Switch ports and a look back on Konami&rsquo;s Sunset Riders.

The process involves getting the Event Rockruff and evolving it in a very particular way. Here's the entire process you need to follow to get both Pokemon in the simplest way possible.</p> <h2>How to Get Event Rockruff</h2> <div class="articleImage full" style="width: 700px;"><img src="https://s3-us-west-1.amazonaws.com/shacknews/assets/editorial/2017/11/rockruff.png" alt="" width="700" height="394" /></div> <p>You may already be familiar with the Mystery Gift feature in the Pokemon games, which let you redeem codes or receive Pokemon via events doing so much as pressing a couple of buttons. Once you have your copy of either Pokemon Ultra Sun or Moon, make sure you head into the main menu and access the Mystery Gift option. You'll need to have already chosen your starter Pokemon between Litten, Rowlet, and Popplio before you can do this. Make sure you've done so and have in turn saved your game afterward.</p> <p>Head to the main menu or turn the game off and on to get to it. Check out the Mystery Gift option and head into it. If you're connected to the internet, you should start a connection that will net you the Pokemon Rockruff. This must be done before January 10, or you'll miss out on Rockruff entirely!</p> <p>Once the Mystery Gift has been completed, that's not the end of this process. You'll need to head to any Pokemon Center in-game, then speak to the delivery man inside. He'll gift you with your Rockruff, so long as you have an open space in your Pokemon inventory. Next, you'll need to complete a series of events that will level your Rockruff up into the Dusk Lycanroc you've been waiting for.</p> <h2>How to Get Dusk Form Lycanroc</h2> <div class="articleImage full" style="width: 657px;"><img src="https://s3-us-west-1.amazonaws.com/shacknews/assets/editorial/2017/11/lycanroc.jpg" alt="" width="657" height="394" /></div> <p>Rockruff's evolution to Dusk Lycanroc gives the Pokemon a striking new look. To get one of your own, you'll need to have first obtained the Rockruff via the methods above. The event lasts between Nov. 17 and Jan. 10, 2018, so you've still got plenty of time to do it. If you already have Rockruff, read on. If not, go ahead and read the instructions in the first part of this guide.</p> <p>You'll need to level up your Rockruff as usual, all the way until level 25. You don't need to do anything special for this, but make sure you level Rockruff up until the brink of 25 before playing your game between 5 PM and 5:59 PM your local time. It matters what time your 3DS clock is set to, so check and double-check before setting out to get Dusk Lycanroc. Then, let your Pokemon evolve between that time and you'll automatically receive a Dusk Lycanroc.</p> <p>You can only evolve the Rockruff you receive from the Mystery Gift event into Dusk Lycanroc, so you only have one shot to get this right per game. Make sure you check and double-check before setting out to do this correctly, and go from there.</p> <p>Congratulations! You should now be the proud owner of a Dusk Lycanroc. Celebrations are certainly in order.</p> Wed, 22 Nov 2017 14:30:00 PST Brittany Vincent Steam Autumn Sale 2017 - Best Deals http://www.shacknews.com/article/102218/steam-autumn-sale-2017---best-deals http://www.shacknews.com/article/102218/steam-autumn-sale-2017---best-deals <p>There are over 6700 games currently for sale on Steam, the world&rsquo;s most popular PC gaming storefront.

It fell somewhere between every day Crucible and Trials of Osiris. You got a bit of a competitive session, but nothing as soul-sucking as the sniper-fest that was Trials. It was also a good place for your average player to get some cool gear.</p> <p>The Iron Banner is back in Destiny 2, but with some changes. This guide will outline all that you need to know to enjoy the Iron Banner event, including what weapons and armor you can earn for all those Iron Banner tokens you&rsquo;ll be collecting.</p> <h2>Iron Banner Guide</h2> <div class="articleImage full" style="width: 700px;"><img src="https://s3-us-west-1.amazonaws.com/shacknews/assets/editorial/2017/10/destiny-2-iron-banner-weapons.jpg" alt="" width="700" height="394" /></div> <p>To begin with the Iron Banner in Destiny 2, head to the Tower and speak with Lord Saladin. He will be located just above Shaxx and the Gunsmith. Once you interact with him you&rsquo;ll get your Iron Banner milestone, and the Iron Banner Crucible playlist will show up in your Director. You can now launch directly into the Iron Banner from the Director and get started.</p> <p>Before you do, though, take note that you have two milestones in your Director. One is the daily and one is the seasonal. The daily Iron Banner milestone only gives you a reputation package that you can turn in to Lord Saladin to level up and earn a Legendary engram. The seasonal milestone, however, offers you a seasonal reward once you collect 10 Iron Banner packages during Season 1. That reward is nothing more than a&nbsp;<a href="http://www.shacknews.com/article/101687/destiny-2---what-is-the-iron-banner-season-1-reward" title="Iron Banner Season 1 Reward">unique emblem</a> that you will not be able to earn after this current Iron Banner event running until November 27.</p> <p>One thing that is slightly different from the original Iron Banner in Destiny, is that level advantages are disabled. This means that you can use whatever gear you&rsquo;re comfortable with, even if the attack or defense rating isn&rsquo;t your highest. In this way, Iron Banner feels less competitive than it did in past years.</p> <p>The good news with Iron Banner, is that you not only get Iron Banner specific gear as you level up your reputation, but you also get gear drops (non-Iron Banner) at the end of each match, and your time will count towards your Clan XP and Call to Arms milestones, making this activity three birds with one stone.</p> <h2>Iron Banner Milestones</h2> <div class="articleImage full" style="width: 700px;"><img src="https://s3-us-west-1.amazonaws.com/shacknews/assets/editorial/2017/10/destiny-2-iron-banner-milestones.jpg" alt="" width="700" height="394" /></div> <p>The daily Iron Banner Milestone is a small collection of challenges that you must complete while you&rsquo;re playing the Iron Banner. Doing so will net you 15 Iron Banner tokens. You&rsquo;ll also earn five Iron Banner tokens per win and two per loss, so winning actually pays much more than in past events.</p> <p>The seasonal Iron Banner milestone requires you to rank your Iron Banner Reputation up 10 times. You&rsquo;ll earn an Iron Engram and other rewards each time you do so, but it takes 20 Iron Banner Tokens to fully level up one time. You could do this easily if you&rsquo;re knocking out the daily Iron Banner milestone for the duration of the event.</p> <h2>Iron Banner Exclusive Weapons</h2> <p>The Iron Banner also comes with lots of exclusive gear. The Weapons are shared by all, while the Armor will be specific to each class.</p> <ul> <li>The Guiding Sight - Kinetic Scout Rifle</li> <li>The Time-Worn Spire Kinetic Pulse Rifle</li> <li>The Steady Hand Kinetic Hand Cannon</li> <li>The Forward Path Kinetic Auto Rifle</li> <li>The Hero&rsquo;s Burden Energy Submachine Gun</li> <li>The Fool&rsquo;s Remedy Energy Sidearm</li> <li>The Wizened Rebuke Power Fusion Rifle</li> <li>The Day&rsquo;s Fury Power Grenade Launcher</li> </ul> <h2>Iron Banner Hunter Armor</h2> <div class="articleImage full" style="width: 700px;"><img src="https://s3-us-west-1.amazonaws.com/shacknews/assets/editorial/2017/11/destiny-2-iron-banner-packages-hunter-armor.jpg" alt="" width="700" height="394" /></div> <p>Except for the Cloak, all the Iron Banner Hunter armor comes loaded with resilience, which will increase the amount of damage that you can take.</p> <ul> <li>Iron Truage Casque - Helmet</li> <li>Iron Truage Grips - Arms</li> <li>Iron Truage Vest - Chest</li> <li>Iron Truage Boots - Boots</li> <li>Mantle of Efrideet - Hunter Cloak</li> </ul> <h2>Iron Banner Titan Armor</h2> <div class="articleImage full" style="width: 700px;"><img src="https://s3-us-west-1.amazonaws.com/shacknews/assets/editorial/2017/11/destiny-2-iron-banner-packages-titan-armor.jpg" alt="" width="700" height="394" /></div> <p>The Titan Armor is features the restorative perk, allowing you to regenerate your health more quickly. Like the Hunter armor, the Titan Mark is not included with this.</p> <ul> <li>Iron Truage Helm - Helmet</li> <li>Iron Truage Gauntlets - Gauntlets</li> <li>Iron Truage Plate - Chest</li> <li>Iron Truage Greaves - Boots</li> <li>Radagast&rsquo;s Iron Sash - Titan Mark</li> </ul> <h2>Iron Banner Warlock Armor</h2> <div class="articleImage full" style="width: 700px;"><img src="https://s3-us-west-1.amazonaws.com/shacknews/assets/editorial/2017/11/destiny-2-iron-banner-packages-warlock-armor.jpg" alt="" width="700" height="394" /></div> <p>The Warlock Armor, like the Hunter Armor, has the resilience perk on it. However, the Bond does not share the Resilience perk.</p> <ul> <li>Iron Truage Hood - Helmet</li> <li>Iron Truage Gloves - Gauntlets</li> <li>Iron Truage Vestments - Chest</li> <li>Iron Truage Legs - Boots</li> <li>Timur&rsquo;s Iron Band - Warlock Bond</li> </ul> <p>Of course,&nbsp;<a href="https://www.bungie.net/pubassets/102341/Iron_Banner_Gear.gif?cv=3983621215&amp;av=3599112753" title="All Iron Banner Armor">collecting all the gear</a> in one Iron Banner event could be difficult. So far this Iron Banner I have earned eight Iron Engram packages and received three pieces of armor, but I also have a friend who has turned in five and received none. What makes this worse, is that we believe, like most activities, that there is a cap of 30 packages that you can earn per character in the Iron Banner event. If that's the case, it's possible you won't be able to collect a full set of armor, and this is likely your last shot at it.

Legendary weapons are now a part of the game, giving each of the game's nine classes a Legendary weapon to wield. Each of these weapons has the potential to impact the game in various ways and Shacknews is going to break each of these arms down one-by-one.</p> <p>Today, we take a look at the Priest, one class that doesn't typically wield weapons. But the weapon this class does get is one that seems to fit right in with a number of familiar Priest decks.</p> <div class="articleImage full" style="width: 700px"><img src="https://s3-us-west-1.amazonaws.com/shacknews/assets/editorial/2017/11/Dragon_Soul.jpg" alt="" width="700" height="409" style="undefined" /></div> <p><b>(3) Dragon Soul (0/3)</b><br /><b>Type</b>: Weapon<br /><b>Class</b>: Priest<br /><b>Rarity</b>: Legendary<br />After you cast 3 spells in a turn, summon a 5/5 Dragon.<br />Source: <a href="http://www.shacknews.com/article/101986/blizzcon-2017-kobolds--catacombs-is-hearthstones-next-expansion">BlizzCon Opening Keynote</a></p> <h2>Dragon Soul At A Glance</h2> <p>Dragon Soul is different from a standard weapon, in that it has zero Attack power. That actually works in the Priest's favor, because it means there's nothing to reduce its durability. Triggering its effect will not reduce durability, giving the Priest the opportunity to summon multiple Dragons. It might even be able to summon multiple Dragons in a single turn. That can't be possible can it? Oh, it can!</p> <p>And because it has the potential to be abused, that makes it an ideal companion for a number of Priest staples.</p> <div class="articleImage full" style="width: 700px"><img src="https://s3-us-west-1.amazonaws.com/shacknews/assets/editorial/2017/11/Shadowreaper_Anduin_Dragon_Soul.png" alt="" width="700" height="490" style="undefined" /></div> <h2>Dragon Soul Synergies</h2> <p>If you think Highlander Priest is powerful now, that's nothing. Dragon Soul will become a critical piece of the Priest's later turns. That'll especially be the case after using <a href="https://hearthstone.gamepedia.com/Raza_the_Chained" target="blank">Raza the Chained</a> and <a href="https://hearthstone.gamepedia.com/Shadowreaper_Anduin" target="blank">Shadowreaper Anduin</a>. On top of piling on punishing Hero Power after Hero Power strike for zero mana, the Priest can keep trotting out 5/5 Dragons to build a stronger board presence.</p> <p>With that said, like the current Highlander Priest strategy, keeping the Priest's hand replenished is going to be a key part in making the most out of Dragon Soul. That means using <a href="https://hearthstone.gamepedia.com/Shadow_Visions" target="blank">Shadow Visions</a> to its maximum efficiency and also introducing new cards with <a href="https://hearthstone.gamepedia.com/Lyra_the_Sunshard" target="blank">Lyra the Sunshard</a> and <a href="https://hearthstone.gamepedia.com/Elise_the_Trailblazer" target="blank">Elise the Trailblazer</a>. The threat of Oozes and <a href="https://hearthstone.gamepedia.com/Harrison_Jones" target="blank">Harrison Jones</a> will be constant, but if the opponent has no answer, Dragon Soul has high abuse potential and will be very tough to beat.</p> <p>Big Body Priest might find a place for this weapon, but that's a little less likely. Yes, it doesn't disrupt its main strategy of using solely big bodies, but there's a concern that there just won't be enough resources to truly make the most of it. Remember that this Priest is also packing expensive spells in this deck, like <a href="https://hearthstone.gamepedia.com/Free_From_Amber" target="blank">Free From Amber</a>, so it's not necessarily a guarantee that there will be enough spells to trigger the weapon's effect, unless both Shadow Visions and <a href="https://hearthstone.gamepedia.com/Silence_(card)" target="blank">Silence</a> are ready to go.</p> <p>Regardless of the Priest deck that's being run, Shadow Visions has the potential to be a real MVP here. Equipping Dragon Soul and having Shadow Visions constantly Discover the other Shadow Visions copy repeatedly is a surefire way to keep the dragons coming on a crazy loop. <a href="https://hearthstone.gamepedia.com/Radiant_Elemental" target="blank">Radiant Elemental</a> also becomes a critical card to making this weapon work, since one or two of them ensure Priests can pack several spells into a single turn.</p> <hr /> <p>There are still eight more weapons to break down and Shacknews will be here to analyze them over the coming weeks.

For this week&rsquo;s <a href="http://www.shacknews.com/article/102199/destiny-2-weekly-reset---november-21st">Destiny 2 Weekly Reset</a>, you will want to pick up the Io treasure maps so you can have a chance of unlocking Cayde-6-specific emblems, Exotic engrams, and some standard blue gear.</p> <h2>Io Treasure Map</h2> <p>The majority of the Cayde-6 treasure chests are located in the north-east section of Io, with two located in the south-west. To locate the first three chests, use the Giant&rsquo;s Scar fast travel node and head north toward Terrabase Charon. Go through the wall and past the drill site, continuing into the Cabal tunnel. As you approach the tunnel&rsquo;s exit, you will see an elevated platform inside the tunnel, this is where a treasure chest is located.</p> <p>The next treasure chest is located in the very next area. Exit the tunnel and move down into the lower section of the pit. Hug the wall on the right and you&rsquo;ll find Cayde-6&rsquo;s loot chest at the mouth of a cave.</p> <p>Continuing on, jump back up to the platform above the previous chest and enter the Cabal base. Run through the base until you enter the Cabal drill site with the large drill in the center of the room. Up in the rafters of this room you can see the glow of the treasure chest. You can either jump up to it using the surrounding rocks or go through the tunnels for an easier ascent.</p> <p>Another chest that&rsquo;s shown on the treasure map can be found in The Rupture. Use the fast travel node near Asher Mir and travel over to the Spade icon on the map. You will find the chest up on a ledge inside the ribcage tunnel.</p> <p>The final Cayde-6 chest that can be found using the Io treasure map is deep underground. Using the Asher Mir fast travel point, make your way to the left side of the great Vex pyramid structure (the entrance to the Pyramidion strike), and look for a little cave in the wall. Travel into the cave system and continue through it until you reach a Vex bridge with a portal at the end &ndash; the chest is in a nook off to the right side of the bridge.</p> <p>The Io treasure map can be a bit confusing to read, as some of the loot chests are tucked away in areas not often travelled. Hopefully you were reward with an Exotic engram for your efforts, and at the very least a cool new emblem.

You will need to bring your highest DPS loadout to the fight, as your damage will be significantly reduced thanks to the challenge.</p> <h2>Emperor Calus Challenge, Leviathan Raid</h2> <p>To complete the Destiny 2 Emperor Calus Challenge, during a damage phase, all plates must be activated at the same time before any damage is dealt to Emperor Calus. What this means is that, once everyone returns to the throne room after killing skulls, the team will need to jump onto each of the four platforms at the same time, and then attack Calus.</p> <p><iframe width="560" height="315" src="//www.youtube.com/embed/5lP700fFgfo"></iframe></p> <p>Overall, this challenge is relatively simple to initiate, as you will just want to assign a few people to each of the four platforms so that they&rsquo;re all activated at once. The difficulty is in trying to deal enough damage to Calus using what is essentially a quarter of the usual damage potential.</p> <p>To alleviate some of the pressure, assign each player a plate, and stack three players on a single plate (preferably one closer to Calus) in order to maximise abilities and buffs. Ideally, you will want a Warlock, Titan, and Hunter on the 3-person plate, as having two Warlocks on a plate wastes a Rift, and having two Titans on a plate wastes a Barricade.</p> <p>It&rsquo;s a good idea that the plate with three people take Calus&rsquo; attention, that way his crit spot (head or stomach) is facing the largest group of people, allowing you to deal more damage.</p> <p>The fight should play out the same, with the throne room team killing enemies and taking down the correct Councilor when it&rsquo;s called. To increase your potential damage, it can be a good idea to have a 4-2 split, with 4 players in the mind realm taking down skulls in order to reach a 90+ Force of Will, and two proficient fighters in the throne room clearing adds.</p> <p>The Destiny 2 Emperor Calus Challenge is reasonably easy with the only problem&nbsp;being the limited damage output a team is able to achieve each round. If you&rsquo;re struggling with the Calus fight, have a read of our&nbsp;<a href="http://www.shacknews.com/article/101374/destiny-2---leviathan-raid-guide">Leviathan raid guide</a> to brush up on the mechanics.

Apple has acquired several companies working in augmented reality, but this deal is the first time the company has acquired a head-mounted display device maker. The deal apparently closed in the past few months, but as with most Apple-related news it was kept secret.</p> <p><iframe width="700" height="394" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/boA4qP0rVJk" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen="allowfullscreen"></iframe></p> <p>A number of Vrvana's employees now work at Apple. The company had only shown off a prototype of their "extended reality" Totem HMD, but it never made its way to market. Vrvana has also worked with Tesla, Valve, Audi and a number of companies under NDA. Vrvana's technology allows for passthrough cameras to show the real world while users enjoy the full immersion of a traditional&nbsp;VR HMD. This is a different approach from Hololens which relies on an image being projected on a translucent visor.&nbsp;</p> <div class="articleImage full" style="width: 700px;"><img src="https://s3-us-west-1.amazonaws.com/shacknews/assets/editorial/2017/11/VR-HMD-VRVANA.jpg" alt="" width="700" height="394" /></div> <p>The problem with packing in the passthrough technology is that the HMD becomes rather bulky. Just look at that thing. Apple CEO Tim Cook has said that AR will "definitely happen" in the past and this acquisition&nbsp;is just one more step towards an Apple AR HMD reinventing how we interact with the real world. The major thing that jumped out at me about the Vrvana Totem&nbsp;headset is the 120 degrees field of view. Here are some more technical specs from the <a href="https://vrvana.com/" target="_blank">official Vrvana website</a>.</p> <p></p> <div class="articleImage full" style="width: 700px;"><img src="https://s3-us-west-1.amazonaws.com/shacknews/assets/editorial/2017/11/Vrvana-Totem-Specs.png" alt="" width="700" height="372" /></div> <p>It remains to be seen what Apple will do with Vrvana, or why they even acquired it, but the company is undoubtedly experimenting in augmented reality and this acquisition&nbsp;is one step closer to an Apple HMD&nbsp;entering a highly experimental and crowded mixed reality headset market. For now, we can add Vrvana to the list of Apple's AR/VR-related acquisitions that include&nbsp;Faceshift,&nbsp;SMI, Flyby Media, metaio, and Emotient.</p> <p></p> Tue, 21 Nov 2017 23:00:00 PST Asif Khan Square Enix President Says Nintendo Switch Is Ideal For Retro Reboots http://www.shacknews.com/article/102210/square-enix-president-says-nintendo-switch-is-ideal-for-retro-reboots http://www.shacknews.com/article/102210/square-enix-president-says-nintendo-switch-is-ideal-for-retro-reboots <p>For many game fans, the names Square, Squaresoft, and Square Enix are synonymous with old-school action and top-tier RPG experiences. Final Fantasy, the company's longstanding flagship series, has paved the way for Square Enix to become a powerhouse studio in the RPG scene. And, especially considering that modern Square Enix fans were weaned on Squaresoft and Enix's 8- and 16-bit games, the company has emerged as one of the top developers creating retro-minded games, such as I Am Setsuna, upcoming title Lost Sphear, and the delightfully-old-school&nbsp;<a href="http://www.shacknews.com/topic/project-octopath-traveler" target="_blank">Project Octopath Traveler</a> that got a demo earlier this year.</p> <p>This clasically-styled outlook is clearly working out for the company, and apparently the success of the aforementioned titles means that Square Enix has started thinking of the Nintendo Switch as an ideal machine for bringing previous-gen experiences into the modern fold. Speaking to Gematsu, Square Enix president Yosuke Matsuda mirrored this notion, stating a belief that the Switch is ideally-suited for retro gaming experiences.</p> <p>"We base our development resource allocations on the unique attributes of each platform," Matsuda said. "In particular, Nintendo Switch makes it easier for us to leverage our back catalog of assets and expertise, so we want to be proactive in creating new IP and rebooting past titles for that platform.</p> <p>While it's not immediately clear which franchises the company is considering remaking or rebooting for the Nintendo Switch, it's fair to say that any big-name series could make a return. If the&nbsp;<a href="http://www.shacknews.com/article/101341/nintendo-reveals-project-octopath-traveler-for-nintendo-switch" target="_blank">current progress on Project Octopath Traveler</a> is any indication, it seems this plan has a solid foundation. Let's just hope the new portable incarnations aren't as bad as the modern ports of games like Final Fantasy VI.</p> <p><iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/E-lnvBXy68Q" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen="allowfullscreen"></iframe></p> Tue, 21 Nov 2017 17:20:00 PST Kevin Tucker The Best PlayStation VR Cyber Monday 2017 Deals http://www.shacknews.com/article/102209/the-best-playstation-vr-cyber-monday-2017-deals http://www.shacknews.com/article/102209/the-best-playstation-vr-cyber-monday-2017-deals <p>The whole point of playing a video game is to become immersed in a virtual world, right? So what better way is there to dive into the digital realm than by strapping on a cutting-edge virtual reality headset? For our money, there's no better deal on getting into the VR craze than by picking up PlayStation VR, Sony's affordable solution to truly engaging virtual reality content. PlayStation VR has been out long enough to have already seen some considerable discounts through everyday prices, and now that Black Friday and Cyber Monday are rolling around, players will have the chance to lose themselves in simulated worlds without having to pay a premium.</p> <h2>Getting Started With PlayStation VR</h2> <p>Virtual reality headsets are fairly demanding: not only do they need their own on-board displays and processing power, they also need to be connected to a machine that can handle running the software and porting images and sound through tehtered devices. For other headsets, like the HTC Vive or Oculus Rift, users need to link up to a pretty powerful PC. For PSVR, however, all that's needed is a PlayStation 4 and a PlayStation Camera, the likes of which are often bundled together with PSVR or sold separately on an as-needed basis.</p> <p>As for accessories, PSVR is set up to interface with standard headphones, DualShock 4 controllers, and even the PS Move controllers that landed during the PS3 era. After connecting a litany of cables, players won't be too far away from enjoying true-to-form virtual reality experiences.</p> <p>Here's the breakdown of everything users will need to get started with PSVR as well as some optional accessories that can make the overall experience more enjoyable.</p> <p>&bull; PlayStation 4 or PS4 Pro<br />&bull; PlayStation VR HMD (PSVR headset)<br />&bull; PlayStation Camera<br />&bull; PSVR-enabled software and games<br />&bull; PlayStation Move (Optional)<br />&bull; PlayStation VR Aim (Optional)</p> <h2>The Best Cyber Monday 2017 Deals On PlayStation VR Hardware</h2> <p>Despite an influx of available software for PlayStation VR, there really aren't many choices when it comes to PSVR hardware. All that's really needed to get into the game is the headset itself; as such, most of the deals are on a standalone head-mounted display or a bundle that includes the PlayStation Camera, a game, and sometimes a PlayStation 4 console.</p> <p>While we don't yet know just which PSVR bundles will be marked down this Cyber Monday, we have gotten a pretty good look at Black Friday 2017 deals for PlayStation VR. Here are the bundles to look out for.</p> <hr /> <p></p> <div class="articleImage full" style="width: 700px;"><img src="https://s3-us-west-1.amazonaws.com/shacknews/assets/editorial/2017/11/amazon-black-friday-2017-deals-t2.jpg" alt="" width="700" height="197" /></div> <p><strong>Amazon</strong>:</p> <p>&bull;&nbsp;<a href="https://www.amazon.com/PlayStation-Console-Headset-Camera-Bundle-4/dp/B07788DKSL/?shack0a-20" target="_blank">PlayStation 4 1TB Console + PlayStation VR + PlayStation Camera Bundle</a> &mdash; <strong>$498.99</strong></p> <p>Now that we've gotten Amazon's Black Friday ads, we also know that the online retailer will be offering up to $100 off select PSVR bundles. Though no specific bundles were mentioned, we expect discounts on PSVR and PlayStation Camera bundles to be prominent on both Black Friday as well as Cyber Monday.</p> <hr /> <p></p> <div class="articleImage full" style="width: 700px;"><img src="https://s3-us-west-1.amazonaws.com/shacknews/assets/editorial/2017/11/target-black-friday-2017-deals-2.jpg" alt="" width="700" height="197" /></div> <p><strong>Target</strong>:</p> <p>&bull;&nbsp;<a href="https://www.target.com/p/playstation-174-vr/-/A-50985363?clkid=46f4c9d7N536ec09e24ff343a1ca987d9&amp;lnm=81938&amp;afid=Gamerhub%20Content%20Network%20LLC&amp;ref=tgt_adv_xasd0002#lnk=sametab" target="_blank">PlayStation VR</a> &mdash; <strong>$199.99</strong> (Doorbuster discount)<br />&bull;&nbsp;<a href="https://www.target.com/p/playstation-174-4-1tb-console/-/A-52416598?clkid=46f4c9d7N536ec09e24ff343a1ca987d9&amp;lnm=81938&amp;afid=Gamerhub%20Content%20Network%20LLC&amp;ref=tgt_adv_xasd0002#lnk=sametab" target="_blank">PlayStation 4 1TB Console with Call of Duty WWII</a> &mdash; <strong>$199.99</strong> (Doorbuster discount)</p> <hr /> <p></p> <div class="articleImage full" style="width: 700px;"><img src="https://s3-us-west-1.amazonaws.com/shacknews/assets/editorial/2017/11/walmart-black-friday-2017-deals-t2.jpg" alt="" width="700" height="197" /></div> <p><strong>Walmart</strong>:</p> <p>&bull;&nbsp;<a href="https://www.walmart.com/ip/Sony-PlayStation-VR-with-Gran-Turismo-Sport-and-Camera-PlayStation-VR/521732447?u1=&amp;oid=223073.1&amp;wmlspartner=vtDuKdGMoPg&amp;sourceid=37013594552891374134&amp;affillinktype=10&amp;veh=aff" target="_blank">Gran Turismo Sport PlayStation VR Bundle</a> &mdash; <strong>$299</strong><br />&bull;&nbsp;<a href="https://www.walmart.com/ip/Playstation-4-PS4-1TB-Slim-Gaming-System/782841840?u1=&amp;oid=223073.1&amp;wmlspartner=vtDuKdGMoPg&amp;sourceid=23253267001299985363&amp;affillinktype=10&amp;veh=aff" target="_blank">PlayStation 4 1TB Console</a> &mdash; <strong>$199</strong></p> <hr /> <p></p> <div class="articleImage full" style="width: 700px;"><img src="https://s3-us-west-1.amazonaws.com/shacknews/assets/editorial/2017/11/Gamestop-Black-Friday.jpg" alt="" width="700" height="197" /></div> <p><strong>Gamestop</strong>:</p> <p>&bull; PlayStation VR Gran Turismo Sport Bundle w/ PlayStation Camera &mdash; <strong>$299.99</strong><br />&bull; PS4 Pro 1TB &mdash; <strong>$349.99</strong><br />&bull; PS4 1TB w/ $50 Gift Card &mdash; <strong>$199.99</strong></p> <hr /> <div class="articleImage full" style="width: 700px;"><img src="https://s3-us-west-1.amazonaws.com/shacknews/assets/editorial/2017/11/costco-black-friday-2017-deals2.jpg" alt="" width="700" height="197" /></div> <p><strong>Costco</strong>:</p> <p>&bull; PS4 1TB &mdash;<strong> $189.99</strong><br />&bull; PS4 w/ Call of Duty WWII &amp; Destiny 2 &mdash; <strong>$289.99</strong></p> <hr /> <p><strong>Newegg</strong>:</p> <p>&bull; PlayStation VR Gran Turismo Sport Bundle - <strong>$299.99</strong><br />&bull; PS4 1TB - <strong>$199.99</strong></p> <p><strong>Dell</strong>:</p> <p>&bull; PlayStation VR w/ PS Camera &amp; Gran Turismo Sport &mdash; <strong>$299.99</strong><br />&bull; PS4 1TB &mdash; <strong>$199.99</strong></p> <p><strong>Kohl's</strong>:</p> <p>&bull; PS4 1TB w/ $60 Kohl's Cash &mdash; <strong>$199.99</strong> (Doorbuster discount)</p> <p><strong>Toys R Us</strong>:</p> <p>&bull; PS4 Slim 1TB Console &mdash; <strong>$199.99</strong></p> <hr /> <h2>The Best Deals Cyber Monday 2017 Deals On PSVR Games</h2> <p><strong>Target</strong>:</p> <p>&bull; Resident Evil 7 &mdash; <strong>$15</strong><br />&bull; PlayStation Plus &mdash; <strong>$10 off</strong> all subscription cards</p> <hr /> <p>Be sure to check back often in order to stay up-to-date on the latest deals for PlayStation VR hardware and software.

While change can be scary, it&rsquo;s likely that we will all get used to the various alterations in how we use our favorite smartphone. One such change is to the notification that shows you what percentage of your iPhone X battery charge remains. This used to be prominently displayed, but now you must seek that information out.</p> <h2>iPhone X Battery Percentage</h2> <div class="articleImage full" style="width: 700px;"><img src="https://s3-us-west-1.amazonaws.com/shacknews/assets/editorial/2017/11/iphone-x-battery-percentage.jpg" alt="" width="700" height="394" /></div> <p>You&rsquo;ll notice that on the home screen of your iPhone X you can no longer see the percentage of your battery charge remaining. You can see a visual representation of your battery, but there is no specific percentage listed for what remains. Don&rsquo;t worry, though, because it&rsquo;s not far away.</p> <p>If you <strong>swipe down from the top right of the screen</strong> you will bring up the Control Center. At the top right of the Control Center you will see another visual representation of your iPhone X battery, but this one will have the percentage of the charge that remains listed for you as well. While this method of getting the details of your iPhone X battery percentage isn&rsquo;t likely to be popular among users initially, it&rsquo;s currently the only method that we know of. It doesn&rsquo;t appear that there is a way to go back to the old method of doing things with other Apple devices.</p> <p>Other changes that Apple has made beyond removing the battery percentage with the iPhone X include <a href="http://www.shacknews.com/article/102112/how-to-take-a-screenshot-with-the-iphone-x" title="How to Take a Screenshot with the iPhone X">how to take a screenshot</a>, and&nbsp;<a href="http://www.shacknews.com/article/102084/how-to-force-close-apps-on-the-iphone-x" title="How to Close Apps on the iPhone X">how to close apps</a> on your phone. We&rsquo;re still working our way through all the changes and features ourselves, and will provide more guides like this one as we discover other tips about the iPhone X.</p> Tue, 21 Nov 2017 13:30:00 PST Bill Lavoy Battlefield 1 is 'Turning Tides' in December http://www.shacknews.com/article/102205/battlefield-1-is-turning-tides-in-december http://www.shacknews.com/article/102205/battlefield-1-is-turning-tides-in-december <p>There's a slew of new content set to hit Battlefield 1 in the coming months. DICE released the latest information about Battlefield 1: Turning Tides on Tuesday morning, announcing that the first batch of DLC is set to release in three weeks.</p> <p>The first wave for Turning Tides will see players battle it out on Cape Helles and Achi Baba. This puts players in the role of the 1915 British army, as they storm the Gallipoli peninsula. These players will also get six new weapons, two melee weapons, and the L-Class Destroyer. Premium Pass owners can pick this up on December 11, with the rest of the game's owners set to get it around Christmas Day.</p> <p>A second wave is set to deploy in January, with the Zeebrugge and Heligoland Blight maps taking players to the North Sea. They'll get to play as the Royal Marines aboard the C-Class Airship. More details on this piece of the expansion are set to come later, with Premium Pass owners getting it first and everyone else getting it two weeks later.</p> <p>DICE is also offering up some other goodies to Battlefield 1 owners, including expansion pass free trials. The "Fall of Empires" Operation Campaign is also set to run from Wednesday, November 22 through Wednesday, December 6. More details on all of this can be found on the <a href="https://www.battlefield.com/news/article/turning-tides-release-dates-other-battlefield-1-updates" target="blank">Battlefield 1</a> website. You can also check out the teaser trailer below.</p> <p><iframe width="700" height="349" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/Mvt059cug-A?rel=0" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen="allowfullscreen"></iframe></p> Tue, 21 Nov 2017 12:55:00 PST Ozzie Mejia Destiny 2 - What is the Spicy Ramen Emote? http://www.shacknews.com/article/102204/destiny-2---what-is-the-spicy-ramen-emote http://www.shacknews.com/article/102204/destiny-2---what-is-the-spicy-ramen-emote <p>Today, Bungie held its second of three livestreams to discuss the Curse of Osiris. During this stream, Deej, community manager for Destiny 2, talked about the Spicy Ramen emote, commenting that it would soon be gone. This resulted in a spike of people wondering what this exotic emote is and how they can get it.</p> <h2>Destiny 2 - Spicy Ramen Emote</h2> <div class="articleImage full" style="width: 700px;"><img src="https://s3-us-west-1.amazonaws.com/shacknews/assets/editorial/2017/11/destiny-2-spicy-ramen-exotic-emote.jpg" alt="" width="700" height="394" /></div> <p>The Spicy Ramen emote is an exotic emote in Destiny 2. It can drop in a Bright Engram that you earn for leveling up, or it can be purchased directly from Tess Everis if she happens to be selling it. While the odds of it dropping in a Bright Engram aren&rsquo;t great, Tess Everis is selling this exotic emote for the next week (November 21 to November 27). If you wish to buy it directly, it will cost you 3,250 Bright Dust.</p> <p>Bright Dust, as you may have already known, is a currency that you can get for dismantling some in-game items, such as ships and transmat effects. It can also come out of Bright Engrams. Besides getting one each time you level up, those can be bought with Silver, and silver can be bought with real money that you spend on microtransactions.</p> <div class="articleImage full" style="width: 700px;"><img src="https://s3-us-west-1.amazonaws.com/shacknews/assets/editorial/2017/11/destiny-2-buy-spicy-ramen-emote.jpg" alt="" width="700" height="394" /></div> <p>What&rsquo;s so special about the Spicy Ramen exotic emote? Nothing, really. I mean, Deej mentioned it on a stream and many Guardians likely didn&rsquo;t know what he meant. The emote only shows a Guardian preparing a bowl of food, eating it and then tossing the bowl away. It&rsquo;s cool enough, and I use it before each public event as a virtual carb load, but it&rsquo;s no better or worse than other exotic emotes. If it means that much to you, though, you&rsquo;ll want to grab it soon; the Spicy Ramen exotic emote will be going away for good once the Curse of Osiris expansion launches.</p> <p>Now that you know what the Spicy Ramen exotic emote in Destiny 2 is, be sure to visit the Shacknews&nbsp;<a href="http://www.shacknews.com/article/101225/destiny-2-complete-strategy-guide" title="Destiny 2 Complete Strategy Guide">Destiny 2 complete strategy guide</a> for everything an up and coming Guardian needs.</p> Tue, 21 Nov 2017 12:45:00 PST Bill Lavoy Splatoon 2 Prepares Black Friday Update http://www.shacknews.com/article/102203/splatoon-2-prepares-black-friday-update http://www.shacknews.com/article/102203/splatoon-2-prepares-black-friday-update <p>Retailers across the nation are gearing up for Black Friday. Splatoon 2 is also getting ready for the shopping rush, but not exactly in the way people are expecting. No, for Black Friday, Splatoon 2 is opening the door to one of its biggest stores... for combat!</p> <p>The first of four new Splatoon 2 stages is set to debut this Friday and it takes Inklings into MakoMart, an Inkling supermarket where players will have to navigate store aisles, warehouse areas, and rafters. Three more stages will release in the weeks afterwards, with Shellendorf Institute being a new addition to the series and Walleye Warehouse and Arowana Mall returning from the first Splatoon.</p> <p>Salmon Run players can also take on a new stage along the shores, called Salmonid Smokeyard. This is a beachfront stage containing elevated platforms and fan lifts that can launch Inklings across the stage quickly.</p> <p>Other things to look out for include an increased level cap (up to 99, from 50), new amiibo functionality, and customization options.</p> <p>This sets the stage for a second update, set to deploy in mid-December. This adds Clam Blitz to the game mode rotation, requiring players to pick up clams scattered around the stage. The idea is to take the clams to a basket located near the opponent's base, but some of the clams have to be used to knock down the basket's protective barrier first.</p> <p>More information on what's coming can be found on the <a href="https://splatoon.nintendo.com/news-video/major-updates-are-incoming/" target="blank">Splatoon</a> website.

While the premium PC gaming experience used to be confined to the desktop, advances in CPU and GPU technology allow you to get the same performance from a gaming laptop. Cyber Monday 2017 is bringing some hot deals on the most popular gaming laptops from the big names like ASUS, Alienware, and MSI. As an added bonus, you don&rsquo;t even have to put on pants to score these hot online specials.</p> <h2>The Best Cyber Monday 2017 Deals on Gaming Laptops</h2> <p>Late last year, Nvidia introduced its Pascal line of graphics chips to the market, bringing an unseen level of performance that produced less heat and required less energy than the previous generations of graphics cards. Heat and power consumption are the biggest enemies of progress in the gaming laptop arena, so the new Pascal GPUs are the perfect fit for lightweight, efficient gaming on the go.</p> <hr /> <div class="articleImage full" style="width: 700px;"><img src="https://s3-us-west-1.amazonaws.com/shacknews/assets/editorial/2017/11/amazon-black-friday-2017-deals-t2.jpg" alt="" width="700" height="197" /></div> <p><strong>Amazon:</strong></p> <p>While Amazon still hasn't yet provided buyers with a list of their Cyber Monday deals, we do expect that the online retailer will be offering up many of the items listed at other stores at discounted prices. Amazon is famous for its Cyber Monday Lightning Deals that offer insane savings in small time windows. Most of these deals are not announced beforehand, so you&rsquo;ll want to check in regularly during the day for a chance to grab the hottest deals on gaming laptops.</p> <p><a

On Tuesday morning, Capcom released a new trailer for the Winter Soldier, Black Widow, and Venom.</p> <p>The Winter Soldier (a.k.a. Bucky Barnes), with all apologies to Bionic Commando's Spencer, comes into battle equipped with his own bionic arm. He also comes in with Chris Redfield's arsenal of explosive weaponry. What separates him from the pack, however, is that he's able to parry certain moves and even Hyper Combos. This makes Bucky more of a tank than anyone is expecting.</p> <p>Black Widow comes in with all of the acrobatic moves that one would expect from a SHIELD agent. She can perform cartwheel kicks, air throws, and is able to crumple opponents with her taser. Her Hyper Combos utilize the agility seen over the course of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, as she'll swing around her target before taking them down.</p> <p>Venom returns with many of his classic moves from the first two Marvel vs. Capcom games. This includes his Venom Web and Death Bite Hyper Combos. The difference here is that Venom looks much more modernized and stylish, with the gooey symbiote effects turned up to 11. Venom's new Level 3 Hyper Combo completely devours his opponent before he slams his opponent hard to the ground.</p> <p>Check out footage of the new characters below. Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite will get Winter Soldier, Black Widow, and Venom on December 5. After that, who knows if Capcom goes any farther with this game's DLC plans. If the plan is to move forward, Shacknews has already offered up some <a href="http://www.shacknews.com/article/101493/future-imperfect-predicting-marvel-vs-capcom-infinites-2018-dlc-roster">speculation on who's next</a>.</p> <p><iframe width="700" height="349" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/3KT-rjVkxHY?rel=0" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen="allowfullscreen"></iframe></p> Tue, 21 Nov 2017 12:05:00 PST Ozzie Mejia
