ARMS’ Newest Character Misango Appears to Be a Poisonous Pugilist

Nobody can say ARMS doesn’t have a diverse cast of characters, and Nintendo is constantly updating the game’s roster. In fact, the company recently announced that the next playable character coming to ARMS is the unique, if somewhat stereotyped, Misango (say that name ten times fast and I’ll guarantee you will say Missingno by accident at least once).

By all appearances, Misango is a mishmash of ancient Mayan, Aztec, and/or Incan cultures and reminds me of video game characters designed during the 90s, back when game developers used stereotypes to create memorable characters — there’s a reason we still love Guile and Soda Popinki, despite them being caricatures. Since Misango hails from the not-Amazon rainforest, he comes with three new fists that, judging by the purple ooze dripping from them, probably poison his enemies. The first fist is a green, chunky roboscorpion that can detach from Misango’s arms and launch themselves at opponents; the second one is a big, disgusting, pulsating pustule of purple putrification barely constrained by leather straps, and the final fist is a bird’s head (or maybe it’s a skull) that’s literally salivating with purple poisonous bubbles.

Not only does Misango come with these never-before-seen fists, but he has a unique ability that makes him a jack-of-all-trades. A weird floating wisp is by Misango’s side at all times and can attach to his face to create either a red bull, blue eagle, or yellow sun mask. Each mask gives Misango a unique buff, as the bull mask apparently prevents Misango from flinching. The eagle mask improves his jumping and dodging abilities, and the sun mask outright blocks attacks. If that’s not a broken ability, I don’t know what is.

ARMS‘ Misango looks like he is going to be a very tricky character to both use and fight. If I were to hazard a guess, I would say that if I’m right about his poisonous attacks and masks, he isn’t the kind of character who can finish off enemies quickly. My gut instinct says Misango is the kind of fighter who specializes in slowly whittling down enemies and winning by running down the clock rather than a knockout. Of course, that’s just what I gathered from the video, so we will have to wait until Nintendo provides a more informative video or updates ARMS with Misango to see if I’m right.

All you have to do to get my attention is talk about video games, technology, anime, and/or Dungeons & Dragons - also people in spandex fighting rubber suited monsters.

Evaluating Fallout 76’s Value in 2024

If you’ve been keeping up with the new Fallout show on Amazon Prime, chances are you’ve been relying on PS Plus Extra and PS Plus Premium to access and enjoy one of Bethesda’s legendary RPGs. We decided to bypass the highly acclaimed Fallout New Vegas and Fallout 3, opting instead to explore the vast landscapes of West Virginia in Fallout 76. Infamous for its initial reception, Todd Howard’s “Fallout with Friends” has evolved significantly over the past six years. However, does that imply the game is of high quality? Is it worth playing in 2024?

As we ventured out of Vault 76 for the very first time, we were determined to find the answers to those burning questions. Recalling our escapades on the Push Square YouTube channel, we encountered quest-giving NPCs—a feature that was surprisingly absent upon release—awe-inspiring bases built by fellow players—and an abundance of loot that could easily burden us 76 times over.

In the midst of the vast array of open-world online experiences, we found ourselves quite enthralled by the combination of 50s classics playing in the background as we obliterated the heads of ghouls. And to top it off, we were able to enjoy all of this with our friends. Exploring the wasteland in the company of a ragtag band of survivors adds a unique element to Fallout 76, setting it apart from other games in the series. However, does it manage to prevent us from uninstalling and transitioning to one of the mainline entries in the series? To discover more, be sure to watch the complete video!

After a long wait, it appears that the search for a capable Hollywood actor to bring the brooding Shadow the Hedgehog to life has come to an end. Keanu Reeves, a renowned actor known for his iconic roles in film franchises such as The Matrix and John Wick, as well as his involvement in the highly anticipated game Cyberpunk 2077, has officially been cast for the role.

Speculation has been running wild lately, but The Hollywood Reporter has officially confirmed the casting, citing reliable sources in the know. News of Sonic the Hedgehog 3 being showcased at Cinemacon has quickly spread. Reeves is sure to bring his own special touch to the role, but it’s uncertain how well he will mesh with the mustachioed Dr. Robotnik, as Jim Carrey is set to reprise the character.
