EA Reveals FIFA 19 Ultimate Team Odds, And It’s Disastrous

FIFA 19 is finally out and with it begins the quest to become the best FIFA player online. While some choose to stick to good old regular division matches, many love the Ultimate Team game mode and its mechanics. Well, this year thanks to the whole loot box debacle, EA has shared the odds for the pack unlocks, and oh boy are they not what you’d want.

As seen from the image the chance to unlock a “Ones to Watch Player” is Less than 1%. Ones To Watch are those players cards that are dynamic which means they get a permanent rating boost throughout the season if they perform well. Cristiano Ronaldo also has a Ones to Watch card which will probably make that card the most valuable card right now.

Back to the chances, you have less than 1% of a chance to get those cards. That less than 1% could even mean a 0.001% chance or a 0.01 % chance. And this for the Premium Electrum Players Pack which is a type of Promo pack. While players can now see how much the odds are against their favour, I doubt it will change the fact that people will still spend their money on pack openings because of the thrill of it.  As always though, make decisions responsibly because every person’s decision counts when it comes to loot boxes and games as your wallet is what does the talking.

Conception Plus Details Game Systems

Spike Chunsoft has released new information about Conception Plus: Ore no Kodomo wo Undekure! introducing the RPG’s game systems.

If you missed it last week, read up on the game’s story and main characters here. The screenshots in today’s update all appeared in the gallery of our previous coverage.

Get the new details below.

■ Game Systems

Go into Dungeons with Star Children

Conception Plus: Ore no Kodomo wo Undekure!

Itsuki Yuge was summoned as the “God’s Gift” to save the magical world of Granvania on the verge of crisis. The only thing that can cleanse the energy known as “impurity” that covers the world is God’s Gift and the Star Children born between him and the 12 Star Maidens. In order to save the world, Itsuki and the Star Children must survive the Stardust Labyrinths and cleanse the world of its impurities.

The 12 Star Maidens

Conception Plus: Ore no Kodomo wo Undekure!

The Star Children that fight the impurities are born between the God’s Gift Itsuki and the 12 Star Maidens. The more your bonds deepen as you communicate with the Star Maidens, the greater the power your Star Children are born with, so be sure to communicate and get familiar with the Star Maidens. Also, as your bonds deepen, each Star Maiden’s hidden past and secrets may also come to light…

Busy Battles with 13 Party Members

Conception Plus: Ore no Kodomo wo Undekure!

In addition to the protagonist Itsuki, your party can consist of three teams of four Star Children for a total of 13 party members. The game uses a command selection-style battle system where positioning plays a key role. Gain the upper hand in battle by attacking from a position where you can target the enemy’s back or weak point.

Love Ceremony

Conception Plus: Ore no Kodomo wo Undekure!

Itsuki and the 12 Star Maidens can participate in a “Love Ceremony” in which they pour their souls into a “Matryoshka” to produce a Star Child. The Star Child’s power will vary depending on the strength of your bond with the Star Maiden and the type of Matryoshka used. Also, the Star Child’s stat trends will differ depending on the Star Maiden, so you should consider the class you need for your current party when choosing a partner for your Love Ceremony.

Conception Plus: Ore no Kodomo wo Undekure! is due out for PlayStation 4 this winter in Japan.

Epic Games Apologises for Unintentional Breast Physics in Fortnite

So much for keeping the kids safe 😛

This happens a day after Sony enables cross play on PS4. So much for keeping the kids safe :PRead more: https://wp.me/p9YzBb-Yx

GamingMonk यांनी वर पोस्ट केले शनिवार, २९ सप्टेंबर, २०१८

Fortnite Season 6 just came out, and it has fans talking for more than one reasons. A major one being Calamity’s breasts, or rather their physics. The new skin for Calamity has considerably noticeable jiggle physics when she performs the Jubilation emote.

A short clip of the animation was shared on Twitter by Twitch stream FaZe, which got the attention of the fans as they shared it over the internet. The funny thing is, it doesn’t happen in the other emotes. For whatever reason, Jubilation is the only emote in which jiggle physics seems to be enabled.

Epic Games has issued an apology in response to this incident. They said it’s a mistake, and “is unintended, embarrassing and careless (for us) to let it ship”. Additionally, they’ve also disabled some elements of the animation system as they try to fix this issue. So, beware of some skins facing animation problems for a while.

PS4 Finally Allows Cross-Play For Fortnite With Xbox & Switch

After a lot of community backlash for Sony’s stance on Cross-play, they’ve finally taken a step towards making a change to their policy. PlayStation’s Extended Cross-Play beta has been launched starting from today.

From Sony’s Blog post which was posted by John Kodera, the President and Global CEO, SIE(Sony Interactive Entertainment) have identified a path forward to support cross-platform features for select third-party content. This cross-platform feature has started with Fortnite and is currently in its Beta state is available to everyone and means that you can now play with Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, Windows, Mac, Android, and iOS players. The new additions to the already existing cross-platform that were available is Nintendo Switch and Xbox One.

The post further states that this is a major policy change for SIE and that they are now in the planning process to support this change across the entire organization. Cross-play for other titles and information about the beta will be given out once they have more details to share.

You can read the Blog post in its entirety here.

This is quite big for gamers as this is the first step towards all the console companies not locking the multiplayer experience when it comes to third-party titles. This will further help socialization in games and could also be the catalyst for better Console exclusive single player titles in the future. We should all give our thanks to Fortnite for this change in policy.

Fortnite Leak Showcases New Items

Fortnite’s data miners are back it again and have leaked a lot of upcoming cosmetic items which are viewable thanks to FNBR. The new cosmetics feature a bunch of very cool items so let’s take a look at them.

From the image above you can see that there’s an extremely creepy looking clown skin that has been aptly named “Nite Nite” which also goes with the whole Fort’NITE’ part of the game’s title and also has its own emote called “Peekaboo”. Creepy clowns are truly the worst and it’s going to piss off a lot of people when they die to people with that skin.

There’s also a new Valkyrie skin which has a very Godly Viking feel to it. While many were hoping to get the Ghost Portal in the new update, it seems that it will be added in the coming few updates. The whole list of leaked items can be checked over at the FNBR website.

Will Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 – Blackout Kill PUBG?

The Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Battle Royale mode, Blackout, had its Beta Open a few days back which let players get a feel of this new battle royale mode. With a lot of praise from CoD fans and Battle Royale game fans alike, did this Beta in any way disrupt the king of Battle Royale games, PUBG?

The Blackout Beta wowed many players due to its fast-paced arcade action which has been the signature for Call of Duty games and because of how well it incorporated the various game mechanics into the Battle Royale game mode. While the Beta certainly helped boost pre-order sales and maybe even helped those on the edge about purchasing the game make a decision, there were many who jumped aboard the hype train. Those people who did were quick to state that this game would be the one to bring down PUBG and Fortnite and become one of the most played Battle Royale games on the market.

While this isn’t much to go off of, we have the SteamSpy graph to help us see if the Blackout Beta lowered PUBG’s active player count and it’s usual daily player count. As seen from the graph, there didn’t seem to be any disruption and PUBG’s concurrent peak players crossed 1 million players every day of the Blackout Beta. Another thing to note is that the Blackout will come with Black Ops 4 so to play Blackout you’ll have to shell out $60 or the regional equivalence to play it which could mean a lower player-count than the Open beta which is free for everyone.

This is specific to the PC platform though and chances are that the console versions will fare better since the PS4 doesn’t have PUBG and will go up against Fortnite while the Xbox One version should have more players due to the unstable performance of PUBG on that console.

It is going to be very interesting to see how each Battle Royale faired at the end of the year since Blackout, Firestorm, and Ring of Elysium will have been out by then.
