Bloodstained details new characters Dominique Alfred, and Anne

Dominique Baldwin (Age: 25) An exorcist dispatched by the church, she supports Miriam as the shopkeeper. She speaks in a posh way, but she treats everyone kindly. While the church believes Miriam and Gebel to be demons, Dominique trusts them as human beings. In order to foil Gebel’s ambitions, she asks her old friend Johannes to summon Miriam. Alfred (Age: 57) Alfred is one of the alchemists responsible for the demon-summoning uproar ten years ago. He was Johannes’s mentor, and a father figure to both Johannes and Miriam, but he’s lost his former self as he heads to the castle seeking the Book of Logaeth in Gebel’s possession. Quite and intelligent, Alfred’s alchemic ability was unmatched even among his fellow alchemists. Anne Knolles (Age: 12) A village girl whose parents were murdered. Anne was saved by Dominique and Miriam when demons attacked her village. When Dominique is out of town, Anne looks after the shop. She is a bright and cheerful girl.

These are the best Joy-Con grips you can get for Nintendo Switch

Now that the Nintendo Switch is available, one of the many complaints I’ve seen online is that the Joy-Cons don’t have enough substance to them to grip. I found them comfortable to hold, even if the back is a bit flat, but if that’s your main problem with the Joy-Cons, this Joy-Con Gel Guard kit from PDP is the perfect solution for that problem.The PDP Joy-Con Gel Guard kit comes with two sleeves that you slip over the Joy-Con with two analog stick caps to help protect them. They have a little bit more texture to the grip so if you find your fingers slipping off the analog stick when you’re using it, these grips might help alleviate the problem.The main issue most people have with the Joy-Cons is that Nintendo didn’t include any ergonomic curves on the back of the device, mainly because they’re intended to be used in several different configurations. Without something to rest your fingers against comfortably while you play, your fingers can end up getting cramped. These PDP Gel Guards solve that problem by giving you an ergonomic back to the Joy-Con.I’ve found the Joy-Cons much easier to hold now that I have these gel…

Pro Overwatch Team Known For Wild Plays Finally Meet Their Match

Over the course of the big APEX Overwatch tournament, Meta Athena went from unassuming underdog to dark horse favorite with plays that seemed to spring forth from some mad scientist’s lab, freshly glistening with incubation tube goop. Their winning streak, however, has finally come to an end. Advertisement In the most recent semifinal match of the tournament, Meta Athena took on top-five team Lunatic Hai. Despite a shaky start in which Lunatic Hai quickly amassed a two-map lead (in a best three of five series), Meta Athena found their rhythm on Japanese temple map Hanamura and started playing like the aggressively crafty demons we’ve come to know and love. They even managed yet another one of the trickiest plays of the whole tournament when they pulled off this insane Mei ice wall boost on Mexican town map Dorado: Video courtesy of Akshon Esports. As has become Meta Athena’s MO, it was a truly astounding play. After hitting a brick wall pushing the payload from behind—the way god intended—they boosted over a roof and started contesting it from the front. Meanwhile, Ha “Sayaplayer” Jeong Woo’s McCree slipped around to the back of the payload, trapping the entirety of Lunatic Hai in…

TBS's Eleague Takes the Life Out of Fighting Games

In his match against Marn, Punk went for a teabag taunt as Karin. That’s about as intense as things got. The third season of TBS’ esports tournament is the first to feature a fighting game. Judging by yesterday’s premiere online broadcast, which will lead into televised episodes, it’s got problems. So far, it’s too quiet, too subdued, and too weirdly structured to work well as a fighting game event. Advertisement The first two seasons of Eleague featured the first-person shooter Counter-Strike: Global Offensive. They’re doing Street Fighter V this year. This new season revolves around a Street Fighter V competition featuring famous pros (such as Daigo Umehara and Justin Wong), celebrity picks who probably won’t win the whole thing but will be fan favorites (such as Street Fighter veterans like Alex Valle and Ryan “Gootecks” Gutierrez, both now better known as commentators rather than active players), and players who are a mix of both charismatic fighting scene celebrity and actual SF chops (like Ricki Ortiz and Xian). It’s an invitational tournament, and the final rounds will be broadcast on television, so it makes sense that Eleague would want to choose players READ FULL STORY AT KOTAKU!

Telltale's The Walking Dead: A New Frontier Episode 3 Review

Share. Javi remains engaging, but this mid-season point can’t quite live up to the premiere. By Jonathon Dornbush Telltale Games’ third season of The Walking Dead continues the trend of the two-part season premiere, exploring its themes of family through the strong lens of its new protagonist, Javi. And though A New Frontier continues to do right by its lead, the narrative problems of the two-part premiere persist in this good but not quite great mid-season episode. After making such a sympathetic protagonist in Clementine for two seasons, A New Frontier continues to find unique ways of making Javi equally likeable. “Above the Law” kicks off with yet another look at Javi’s life in the early days of the outbreak. Watching Javi take charge of his brother David’s family feels as vital to his story as anything in the present-day storyline. These flashbacks are some of the series’ quieter moments, sure, but they can offer greater impact than any of the franchise’s most bombastic scenes. The full picture Telltale continues to paint of Javi throughout the season is A New Frontier’s greatest triumph. His plight remains one I’ve genuinely cared about since the season began, never once making me doubt…

Congress Just Gave Internet Providers the Green Light to Sell Your Browsing History Without Consent

Sen. Jeff Flake (R-AZ), who introduced the bill in the Senate last week. Image: Getty. The House of Representatives voted today repeal rules preventing internet service providers from selling their customers’ web browsing and app usage data without explicit consent. The Senate passed the same bill last week, which means the only obstacle that remains is a signature from President Trump—and the White House has already signaled he will do so. Advertisement The rules would have required ISPs to get explicit opt-in consent from customers before selling their sensitive data, including web browsing history and app usage data. The rules hadn’t gone into effect yet, and Federal Communications Commission (FCC) chairman Ajit Pai stopped the first provision, which would have required ISPs to keep customer data secure—what a concept!—from going into effect earlier this month. Without these rules, “there will be no strong federal protection for consumers when it comes to how their ISP can use their information,” Dallas Harris, a policy fellow at the privacy advocacy group Public Knowledge, told Gizmodo. Under the current statute, customers must be allowed to opt out of letting their ISP sell their data, READ FULL STORY AT KOTAKU!

Snake Pass devs working on patch to fix loud rumble on Switch

Snake Pass by Sumo Digital hit the Nintendo eShop this week and while we’ve been having fun with the game in anticipation of our review, someone on YouTube noticed that the game seems to make the HD Rumble in the Nintendo Switch crazy loud while in handheld mode. Watch the video above to see what I’m talking about. Sumo Digital is apparently aware of the issue and they’re working on a patch that will address this absurdly loud rumble sound. I can confirm the issue seems to be related to handheld mode only, as I’ve been playing the game in docked mode and the rumble issues aren’t nearly as loud there.

8 Unlikely WWE World Champions

Charismatic Enigmas, Goat-Faced B Plus Players, Iraqi Turncoats, and more By Matt Fowler With swamp messiah/eater of worlds/buzzard king Bray Wyatt set to defend the WWE Championship against Randy Orton at WrestleMania 33 — live this Sunday, April 2nd —  we thought we’d flip back through the rolodex (reference to old thing!) of past WWE Champs and pick out some of the most unconventional and unlikely guys to ever hold WWE’s top strap. Now, these aren’t all grim, ghoulish, monsters like Bray Wyatt, as “monster gimmick” wrestlers very rarely held the world gold — save for Undertaker and Kane — but they are performers who, for varying reasons, broke the particular mold at the time for what was considered an apex champion. From Charismatic Enigmas to Goat-Faced B Plus Players to Iraqi Turncoats, here are 8 outside-the-box, unlikely world champions. Bray Wyatt Kicking things off here, WWE’s current champion is a muddy-haired marshland messiah known for creepy cryptic speeches and sadistic devout followers. Well, the latter part not so much anymore ever since Orton infiltrated the Watt Family ranks and caused it to implode from within. Still, a guy like Wyatt, despite his ability in the ring and READ FULL…
