Brian Waggoner joins the crew

[Update: Waggoner re-clarifies that he is working in system design, and is not the new creative director of the game. Also, he officially starts at Crystal Dynamics next month, and anything he works on is going to take time, so don’t expect overnight change.]

Marvel Avengers is hurting as a live service game, which pretty much everyone could have predicted right after reaching the end of it near its launch. But Crystal Dynamics might have a secret weapon up their sleeve: their newly-hired former Marvel developer Brian Waggoner, who worked on Marvel Heroes. This directly follows the departure of the game’s creative director just a week before.

So here’s what Waggoner has to say about his addition to the team. As a systems designer, he is going to help them “build new systems and features” (naturally!). But he also publicly shared his trepidation for working on a Marvel game again “after what happened at Gazillion.”

Here’s a quick recap. So Marvel Heroes launched in 2013, and was trucking along as a free-to-play MMO in the space with Gazillion and Secret Identity Studios co-developing. Four years in, amid a great purge of Disney-related developers from their licensing agreements, Disney pulled the plug and Gazillion as a studio effectively shut down that month. This is just a year after Disney crushed Avalanche Software into dust and obliterated Disney Infinity, among other projects.

Still, it was enticing enough for Waggoner to bite, and he felt like the “passion for making a game fans love and knowing the potential” was enough for him to make the move to Crystal Dynamics and give it another go. Waggoner cites the “leadership” of the studio as a big draw, as well as the ability to receive “honest feedback” with “no egos.”

Provided that’s true (it is his new employer after all!), Waggoner could be the messiah the game needed to move away from some of the more penny-pinching concepts in recent months and put Avengers back on track. After all they still need to honor their commitments for characters like Black Panther and Spider-Man, at least throughout the rest of the year.

I really hope the game actually gets back on track, and potentially reinvents itself, with a “Realm Reborn treatment,” and we don’t have to write about it shutting down abruptly later this year.

Mutagel Location In Ark Genesis Part 2

The Mutagen is a resource that enables the survivor to further evolve their existing tames in Ark: Genesis Part 2. It can also be used to improve the statistics of non-bred dinos in the game.

Mutagel can also be crafted into Mutagen at a Chemistry bench, which can be used later to tame Stryders. It takes 800 Mutagel to make 1 Mutagen so make sure you collect lots of it.

Space Area

To get Mutagel from rocks, you can head over to the space area where you can find different rocks depending on the time of the day.

Next, you need to look for orange/golden colored rocks in the space area to mine Mutagel. These rocks are scattered in the area and they contain both Mutagel and Ambergris inside it.

Mutagel rocks

You can use a pickaxe to break the rocks and collect Mutagen from it.

Alternatively, you can obtain Mutagel in Rockwell’s Innards biome from a Mutagen plant. It yields 1 Mutagel and 1 Plant Species R Seed. It can also trigger a defense against multiple Summoner and their minions.

Genshin Impact 1.6 Kazuha Banner 4 Star Characters, Release Date

Today, a new leak has given us the details of the Kazuha banner. The leak comes from popular Genshin Impact leaker Lumie and it states that the Kazuha banner will be featuring Rosaria, Bennett, and Razor.

This is in line with the leaks which surfaced almost a month ago, so it seems quite likely that this is true. Do note that unless official information is out, this should be taken with a grain of salt.

Apart from that, the Klee banner will also be arriving as per leaks. It will be featuring “Klee – Fischl – Sucrose – [No Trial]”, according to Wangsheng Funeral Parlor. It will be interesting to see if we actually end up getting the same characters. However, considering that leaks in the past have been quite accurate, there is high chance of this being true. As far as the release date is concerned, Kazuha might be the first banner arriving in 1.6, followed by Klee.

First Biomutant patch will tackle dialogue problems alongside combat Biomutant

Published

The developers at Experiment101 have announced they’re working on an update for Biomutant, naturally, that they “hope to get into players’ hands soon.” The update will include work on some of the community’s most persistent bugbears, like “the pacing of dialogues, narrator settings, difficulty settings, video settings like depth of field and motion blur, loot and enemy tuning as well as sound and combat.”

Weird dialogue pacing, as well as the persistent and constant narration, have been key notes from many players. Though you can turn down the constant chatter from the narrator, you can’t turn it off.

Key for some people, me included, is a promise to change video settings like depth of field and motion blur. Some people don’t like those. I do not like them. For now, you can go and find some mods to change those—they’re already out there.

Reviewer James Davenport found Biomutant to have a charming world, but lackluster gameplay, in our review. “Biomutant feels like it’s going to be much more,” he said, “but in practice it’s an endless stream of new ideas that go nowhere and beautiful, toxic landscapes with little to offer except an excuse to use photo mode.”

Nonetheless, James did give out some hot tips for making the most of Biomutant.
