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.

After about a month of work, a couple of Google employees have successfully hacked the PS Portal, PlayStation’s handheld streaming solution. Their project is not set for public release anytime soon, but the hack is purely software-based, eliminating the need for hardware exploitation.

Andy Nguyen, a cloud vulnerability researcher, and Calle Svensson, a security engineer, shared their latest project on Twitter. They successfully ran the PSP emulator PPSSPP on the PS Portal. They presented the 2005 PSP classic Grand Theft Auto: Liberty Stories.

As a wireless streaming device, the idea of playing games on the PS Portal without a PS5 providing the power was considered impossible. It’s quite surprising how quickly Nguyen and Svensson have overcome this initial hurdle. It remains to be seen where their efforts will take them, but we will definitely keep an eye on their progress. Nguyen expressed that there is still a lot of work left to do.

Lady Gaga, also known as Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta, has teased an upcoming collaboration with Fortnite Festival set to be unveiled soon. More pertinent to our specific attention to detail, Gaga has also admitted to a mistake made around four years ago, indicating her keen awareness of the franchise’s significant value.

Gaga shared a mesmerizing picture of her character in Fortnite and also retweeted a post from 2019 where she asked her fans, “What’s fortnight?”. She finally got the chance to correctly spell the title of the game, allowing us to breathe a sigh of relief after waiting anxiously.

Lady Gaga will be teaming up with other top celebrities to maximize their presence on the Fortnite platform. Travis Scott once hosted a live concert in Battle Royale a couple of years ago, while the Weeknd just premiered the music video for the song “Popular” at the Fortnite Festival.

Reflecting on Street Fighter 5’s tumultuous launch, Capcom looks back eight years later

For those who may not recall, nearly eight years ago today, Street Fighter 5 was released in 2016 in a rather incomplete state. The content available was impressive initially, but the limited number of characters and lack of single-player game modes stood out. Capcom expresses regret for the entire situation, offering apologies years later for having “betrayed” players’ expectations.

On SF5’s eighth anniversary, the developers must be feeling nostalgic. They recently posted a Japanese-language tweet looking back on the mistakes made and the challenges that were eventually overcome. The number of playable characters has grown to 45, and the game has seen various enhancements, including the introduction of new abilities such as V Skills/Trigger II and V Shift. Even now, hundreds of thousands of players still choose to play this game instead of the newer Street Fighter 6.
Have you had the chance to try out Street Fighter 5 since it was first released? What do you recall about the game’s reception? Take a trip down memory lane in the comments section below.
