Pokemon The Crown Tundra DLC preview: four big additions in Sword and Shield’s latest DLC

Pokemon Sword and Shield had to make a few cuts in order to meet some of its ambitions, but its DLC expansion pass continues to buff up previously lacking areas of the game. In many ways, the theme of Pokemon Sword and Shield was revolution. A jump to HD graphics, areas with 3D camera control, more cinematic cutscenes – much was changed. Some change-driven omissions also angered fans, but expansions to the game appear engineered to address those complaints. June’s Isle of Armor expansion was about growth, focusing on expanding battling and training. The Crown Tundra, out later this month,…

Desperados 3 is now on Mac and Linux, and its first DLC is out

Here’s a fun computing fact for you: the Linux term root is derived from the cowboy term rootin’ tootin’, because the console cowboys who clip-clopped on their mechanical keyboards like a bucking bronco and listened to Fields Of The Nephilim would cry “Yeehaw!” and wave their leather Stetsons when they got system admin rights.
