Payday is the title that allows gamers to get aberrant and criminal behavior out of their system in a perfectly legal way. Payday 2 has been out since 2013, and it’s still getting love and attention from the developer. This four-player co-op FPS has been receiving constant updates and dlc for as long as it has been on the market. The latest stream of content for Payday 2 comes from the spring break event. This is a 10 day event that started on April 3rd and will end on April 12th. Each day the devs at Overkill will release some something new, essentially providing us with a drip feed of fun.

This event is titled The Search for Kento. Jiro is a more recent member of the Payday gang, and an ex-yakuza who left Japan in search of his son. His son is, you guessed it, Kento. Day one gives us the paper gang. This is a little bit of fun for the heisters who enjoy arts and crafts. You can print off, cut out, then fold your own little members of the Payday gang. Day two gave us a classic heist from the original Payday: Payday The Heist. In this heist the gang has to hunt down the get away driver who double crossed them through a city full of trigger happy cops. Day three added more paper heisters to fold.

Day four adds the new game mode Crime Spree, the armor safe, and twelve new screen filters. This game mode puts the gang into a series of never ending heists that increase in challenge, and in payout. The armor safe is a safe that, when opened, gives you skins for your armor. They are applied in the same manner as gun skins. The new filters allow for increased immersion by altering lighting, fog, and color. Lastly, Day five is more paper gang paper figures to fold up.

As previously mentioned, all of this content is only half of what can be expected. More stuff will be released over the following days. New weapons, AI features, cosmetics, paper gang, and a heist can be expected in the days to come. This spring event is going to be interesting.

Critics and fans alike went crazy for Amazon’s take on the famous role-playing game series Fallout. There were a lot of nominations for 16 Emmy awards, including Best Actor and Outstanding Drama Series. The show was able to reach audiences outside of gamers and got a lot of attention from the industry.

Eurogamer has been keeping track, and now that all the votes are in, Fallout is tied for fifth place with 23 nominations for the 76th Emmy Awards, which are put on by the US Academy of Television Arts & Sciences. With 25, The Bear has the most nominations, followed by True Detective: Night Country with 23, and Shogun with 19.

It shouldn’t be a surprise that Walton Goggins is up for Best Actor for his performance as The Ghoul. Although games will always be our first choice, it’s great that adaptations of games don’t have to be awful, and we can’t wait for the next season of the shows.

Are you surprised by how well Amazon’s version of Fallout has done in the mainstream? Is the curse of movies based on video games finally over? Leave a comment below and let us know.

Ten million people play The First Descendant in its first week

The free-to-play shooter The First Descendant has gotten a lot of attention in its first week. The game’s publisher, Nexon, says that 10 million people have already tried it out.

Insider Gaming pointed out that since there is no cost up front, it’s still too early to tell how many of those players will stick around, but it’s still a big number for a new IP. On Steam alone, it peaked at 264,860 concurrents right after launch and has still managed to break 200,000 in the last 24 hours, so it looks like a lot of people are still really into the game.

It was a “mindless and repetitive grind,” and we gave The First Descendant a 3/10 in our review. Of course, that’s just one opinion; other experts have had different ones. Most people, though, say that the game’s annoying free-to-play model is the worst thing about it.

Are you one of the millions of people who played The First Descendant last week? Are you going to come back for more? Leave a comment below and let us know.
