A new, paid DLC Expansion Pass is coming to Pokemon Sword and Shield. The Pass will cost $30, and will bring 2 DLC packs which will contain new environments, Pokemon, clothing items, and more. The first expansion is called Isle of Armor and not only does it introduce returning Pokemon from outside the Galar region, but also a brand new legendary called Kubfu. The second expansion is Crown Tundra, which focuses heavily on exploration. If you’re on the fence about purchasing the Expansion Pass, all players will be able to sample the new expansions for free later today. The first expansion is expected to launch this June.

  2. Chinese is Steam’s Most Popular Language   According to the results of Valve’s December 2019 Steam Hardware and Software Survey, simplified Chinese is now the largest language demographic on Steam. This marks the first time that English was not the most popular language. It’s important to note that participation in the survey is optional, so the results are far from scientific and the data may easily be skewed.

  3. New Hearthstone Solo Adventure   Hearthstone is getting a new solo adventure called Galakrond's Awakening. Galakrond’s Awakening will be a part of the Descent of Dragons, and will feature 24 encounters spread across 2 different stories. The expansion will also introduce 35 new cards which can be earned by completing the solo challenges.

  4. New Nvidia Driver Drastically Improves VR   Nvidia new driver just gave a huge graphical and performance boost to VR games. Nvidia’s new Variable Rate Supersampling (VRSS) boosts overall graphical quality by cleverly selecting certain areas in the field of view to focus on. The driver update currently supports 20 different titles, and is only available for RTX graphics cards.

  5. Free Games from Epic   Epic Games is officially continuing their weekly freebies. From now until January 16, players can claim Sundred: Eldritch Edition for free from the Epic Games Store. As long as you claim the game before January 16, the game will stay in your library forever. Sundred: Eldritch Edition is “a chaotic hand­-drawn metroidvania where you resist or embrace ancient eldritch powers.” It also includes local co-op for those of you looking to try out a new game with friends.

    It's actually pretty awesome. I've been saying I wish that Pokemon made a move to live service and had Destiny style expansions.

  • F̷i̷r̷e̷_ LV.25 Nightmare Jan 10, 2020, 04:39 AM

    is it

  • Mathfailure1212 LV.19 Pokémon Master Jan 10, 2020, 07:26 AM

    it sounds like your issue is with the people who play it, not the game itself

  • NO NAME verified Jan 10, 2020, 07:27 AM

    Mathfailure1212  it kind of taints the game

  • Mathfailure1212 LV.19 Pokémon Master Jan 10, 2020, 07:29 AM

    That's true, but to be honest I still like it. I certainly wouldn't blame Epic just because they made the game. I mean, Rick and Morty has toxic elements to their fandom but I still watch the show because I like it

  • Mathfailure1212 LV.19 Pokémon Master Jan 10, 2020, 07:42 AM

    my real point being, don't let toxic 7 year olds keep you from getting those free games 👍

  • Donald Hill LV.5 Lurker Jan 10, 2020, 07:13 AM
