After teasing some farewell levels for Celeste late last year, one of the game's co-creators, Matt Thorson, took to Twitter yesterday to detail exactly what we can expect from the upcoming DLC. Coming free to all platforms, these additional levels will be leaving the iconic strawberries behind, but they will feature a few new items and mechanics to make up for it. There's no word on when this DLC will be available, though they unfortunately won't be ready in time for the game's first anniversary on January 25th.

Bungie has been a major force in the video game industry ever since they launched the iconic Halo franchise in 2001. After years of Microsoft exclusivity, Bungie split from their parent company in 2007, losing the rights to Halo in the process. A few years later they teamed up with Activision on a 10-year contract to make Destiny, but ahead of that contract's expiration date, the two companies have agreed to part ways.

If you're anything like me, you were probably ecstatic when Celeste got a Game of the Year nomination for The Game Awards 2018. It may not have won, but the team at Matt Makes Games did go home with two other notable awards: "Best Independent Game" and "Games for Impact." The latter, according to the Game Awards site, is "for a thought-provoking game with a profound pro-social meaning or message." If you've played Celeste or are at least familiar with its themes of struggling with depression and anxiety, you'll know this award was very well deserved. As someone deeply touched by the game due to my own anxiety, I wanted to talk about how Celeste brilliantly blends this story with its challenging gameplay, and why that hands-down makes it my game of 2018.

Director Matt Thorson recently shared a major milestone for the hit game on Twitter and also teased more content for the future.

We're just over a month away from the launch of the Resident Evil 2 remake, but you might not have to wait that long to give the game a shot. Capcom has been steadily releasing screenshots, trailers, and gameplay videos, but so far there's been no official announcement of a playable demo.

Nintendo Switch had a record-breaking first year, but those incredible sales numbers began to decline throughout 2018. This is largely because Nintendo failed to release a steady stream of compelling games throughout the year, choosing instead to bank it all on a star-studded holiday lineup that included Smash and Pokémon. Now that Nintendo's enjoying strong end-of-year sales, Switch has rebounded in a major way.

The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air was one of the most successful television series of the 1990s. One of the most well known moments from the show involved Alfonso Ribeiro's Carlton character, whose generally uptight demeanor made for one of the wackiest dances in television history. While some may call this dance the world's first meme, Ribeiro believes it is his intellectual property. Not only is he planning on copyrighting his signature dance, but he is also suing Fortnite developer Epic Games over their use of it.
