The Daily Moot (1/2/20)
1. Modern Warfare Gets New Game Mode
Are you ready to Grind? The new “Grind” gamemode has now come to Modern Warfare. First featured in Call of Duty: Ghosts, Grind combines Kill Confirmed and Harpoint in a mode that requires both tactics and gun skills. It’s unclear whether or not the new mode is here to stay, as it replaced the temporary Drop Zone mode which was available for about a week. That means if you want to Grind, now is the time.
2. The Uncharted Movie Loses its 6th Director It may be a new year, a new decade even, but some things just don’t change. The Uncharted Movie has failed once again as yet another director has left the project. Travis Knight (director of Bumblebee) was the 6th director to join and then leave the project since it was first announced in 2007. The Uncharted Movie is supposed to be a prequel to the game’s narrative, but at this point who knows if it will ever come out.
3. Final Fantasy VII Remake Demo Leaked The Final Fantasy VII Remake demo leaked on the PlayStation store, enabling players in certain regions to download the game prematurely. Dataminers were quick to investigate the code, and they came across some pretty big news. Originally expected to be a PlayStation exclusive, the demo contained code for AMD and Nvidia compatibility, which essentially confirms a PC release. While it will likely release some time after the PS4 version, the PC port is huge news for Final Fantasy fans who have been eagerly awaiting the FFVII remake ever since it was first announced in 2015.
4. Skyrim is Getting a Granny Mod Grandma Shirley is officially coming to Skyrim! The 80-year-old Shirley Curry is known as the “Skyrim Grandma” and she has gained quite a following, boasting nearly 800k subscribers on Youtube. The Skyrim Grandma will soon be made into an NPC follower mod, complete with her own quest lines, interactions, and observations. The character will be a classic Barbarian and will be voiced by Shirley Curry herself. There's no official release date yet, but the mod is expected to be available early this year.
