Heroes of the Storm is one of those games that gets so much better when you’re playing it with a few buddies, which is why Blizzard decided to introduce the ‘Recruit a Friend’ program to their MOBA. This program has been around for a few years in World of Warcraft and seems to work similar in Heroes of the Storm as well. You basically have to convince people to make an account using your referral link and try out the game and everyone gets to enjoy some nice rewards as you level up. I would say that ‘Recruit a Friend’ should actually work better here because this is a free-to-play MOBA and it’s therefore much easier to convince other people to try it out.

As for the rewards themselves, we’re only looking at a few of them, but maybe more will be added further down the line to sweeten the deal even more. If you’re a veteran Heroes of the Storm player you can expect to get the ‘Recruit a Friend’ portrait once you have a level 10 recruit and the Vulture Hover Bike Mount should you manage to persuade four other people to play the game until they reach level 10. That may prove to be quite a feat, but the mount is pretty awesome so it’s definitely worth a shot.

On the other hand, if you’re a recruit and just getting started, Blizzard is throwing in Jim Raynor and a 5-day Stimpack to make sure that you start your Heroes of the Storm career on the right foot. Then, if you enjoyed the game and managed to reach level 10 you’ll get an additional hero in the form of Sylvanas, along with a ‘Recruit a Friend’ portrait to match that of the friend who introduced you to the game. So, are you ready to take the Nexus by storm along with your buddies? For more information on the ‘Recruit a Friend’ program make sure to visit Blizzard’s official website right here.

Pedro Pascal may have indulged in a few too many Dark ‘n’ Stormy’s before the 2024 SAG Awards, where he clinched the award for Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Drama Series for his portrayal of Joel Miller in the HBO adaptation of The Last of Us. Appearing slightly intoxicated, the actor portraying Joel confidently stepped onto the stage and stated, “This is incorrect for several reasons. I’ve had a few drinks. I believed I could become intoxicated. Thanks, HBO! Oh boy, I feel a bit embarrassed, but I really appreciate this.”

Pascal faced tough competition from Succession actors Brian Cox, Kieran Culkin, and Matthew MacFadyen, along with The Morning Show’s Billy Crudup. He emerged victorious for the award and, seemingly oblivious to his defeated competitors, remarked:

“I’ve been in the union since 1999, so this is a tremendous honor. “We’re on Netflix,” Pascal noted, mentioning the streaming platform’s position on censorship. “I might experience a surge of anxiety and decide to depart.” Pascal expressed gratitude to showrunner Craig Mazin, Naughty Dog head Neill Druckmann, colleagues, and production staff for their valuable contributions.

REYNATIS appears as a rugged yet strangely attractive action RPG for PS5 and PS4

It’s unfair to criticize the time it takes to develop PS5 and PS4 games, only to then judge REYNATIS for appearing a bit messy. Developers are investing significant sums in creating high-budget games nowadays, so maybe it’s about time we adjust our expectations and embrace slightly less polished releases instead.

This introduction sets the stage for FuRyu’s latest game, which could easily fit in as a late-gen launch on the PS3, but that doesn’t take away from its potential for enjoyment. A team of former Square Enix employees created this game, which explores a power struggle among magicians in Shibuya. Some aim to flaunt their abilities, while others prefer to keep them hidden.

The setting is truly remarkable; having visited Shibuya, it captures the essence of the iconic location perfectly. The combat appears solid, but there are performance issues to address, especially with the Japanese release scheduled for July 25th. Although there has been no official announcement regarding a Western release, we anticipate that a publisher will likely pick it up later this year.

Leaked footage of LittleBigPlanet Hub on PS3 brings a nostalgic wave

Once upon a time, Sony revealed Little Big Planet HUB, a free-to-play exclusive for the PS3 available on the PS Store. It seems that the game will merge all the content from LittleBigPlanet and LittleBigPlanet 2, giving fans the opportunity to play, create, and share without any cost. The concept was ambitious, which likely made the platform holder hesitant.

It is common knowledge that the planned release in August 2013 never materialized, with many speculating that it evolved into Little Big Planet 3. More than a decade later, footage from a beta version of LittleBigPlanet Hub has surfaced after an old NDA expired.

There is not much that is unexpected here: the gameplay resembles LittleBigPlanet, featuring floaty physics, prize bubbles, and narration by Stephen Fry. It’s intriguing to come across cancelled titles such as this one. A free-to-play version of LittleBigPlanet could potentially thrive in today’s landscape of creative live services similar to Roblox and Minecraft.
