Borderlands 2 community day shift codes
During the recent Pokemon Go community day event, trainers were surprised and confused to discover a strange, new Pokemon kicking around alongside the community day’s star, Chikorita. The unusual creature, which looks a bit like a white Ditto with a hexagonal nut stuck on top of it, appeared in droves near the end of the community day event. When encountered, its name and CP rating both display as “???,” but when captured, it transforms into a normal-looking Ditto. Adding to the bizareness of the situation, according to a recent VG247 article, dataminers have discovered that the model’s name is Kecleon and that it’s registered as having the Pokedex number 891. There are a couple of strange things about that: First of all, Kecleon is an actual Pokemon, but it looks like a chameleon, not a hexagonal-headed blob, and its Pokedex number is 352. Secondly, a Pokemon with the Pokedex number 891 would be part of the unreleased eighth generation of Pokemon, which … [Read more...] about Pokemon Go players identify strange new creature during community day event
Guild Wars 2 has a gorgeous game world and I am sure quite a lot of people agree with me here. I started the screenshot gallery even before the game had officially released. Back then, it was mostly the races’ capitals and Lion’s Arch. A few days ago, Ten Ton Hammer started a little competition and they’re asking to leave a comment there with a screenshot of your favorite location. Where to even start here… I figured I would go and take a screenshot at a place that I really like, but then I actually remembered the huge gallery I already uploaded here. :p Yes, it’s been a while since I last updated it… it’s just a lot of work with first spending a few hours on a given map, taking a few hundred screenshots (no, I am not exaggerating, that’s how I am…). Then a few more hours going through said screenshots and deciding which ones will make it into the final gallery. Why should I ignore all this effort. The pictures shown there already … [Read more...] about The beauty of Guild Wars 2 – Blaugust Day 3
Are you familiar with Geocaching? It’s a popular activity in which players hide and discover treasure caches all over the world (and is a favorite of Shroud of the Avatar’s Richard Garriott, who hid one on the International Space Station). It turns out that Bungie is a fan of the game as well, as the studio team created its own special geocache hunt for fans to discover. Destiny 2 players discovered clues in the latest patch that eventually led to a secret message. This message contained GPS coordinates to a real-world location, which turned out to be a hidden cache on Sleeping Beauty Mountain in New York state. The contents? A huge Valkyrie spear modeled after one of Destiny 2’s weapons and a note from the developers encouraging the finder to share his or her discovery with the community at large. The note was from Design Lead Rob Gallerani that thanked the community for its passion and hinted that more geocaches may be coming. Additionally, the team left a … [Read more...] about Destiny 2 community goes on a real-world hunt for a hidden spear
