Splatoon’s next Splatfest has been announced and will arrive next week. The all new North American Splatfest will start October 9th. This time we ask: how would you rather travel, by car or by plane?

On one hand, you can stop whenever you want in a car but you also spend more time getting to your destination. Air travel can be a bit more stressful but you get free snacks!
We’ll settle this once and for all when the next Splatfest starts on Friday, 10/9, at 9 PM.

Which will you choose?

LEGO Dimensions to be Supported For 3 Years


TT Games has confirmed that LEGO Dimensions will be supported with add-on content for at least another three years. In a recent interview with Eurogamer, the developer has stated they have “no intention of stopping” when it comes to adding DLC and figurines to the latest addition of the LEGO franchise. Here is what TT Games’ associate producer Mark Warburton said regarding the title:

“We have a three year plan at the moment and we’ve got no intention of stopping there. We’ve created the technology to the degree that we’re happy it meets our needs for the future. We’ve created the toy pad so that it shouldn’t need to be updated. And we can just create new level and character packs to keep expanding that.

“You can 100 per cent the game and get the Platinum trophy just from the base set. People have been playing Lego games for 10 years now, and we shouldn’t be offering anything less than that. You get the game, you get the toy pad, you get 200+ odd level bricks. We think we’re offering a lot of value with that and there’s a lot of gameplay there. There’s also a huge offering [of extra content] if you’re a fan and want to get into that we support that. But if you’re only a fan of particular thing you can only get that.”

Sounds great to us! Did you invest in LEGO Dimensions?
