Watch This Impressive Fall Guys Hex-A-Gone Finish

If you are one of the 2 million people now playing Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout on Steam, you might be looking for ways to up your game and take home the coveted crown. This Hex-A-Gone gameplay proves that, despite its cute and cuddly aesthetic, Fall Guys winners are just as likely to be stone-cold killers as you might find in Call of Duty: Warzone.

Posted by Twitch streamer Barret Courtney, the video shows that a flawless victory in Hex-A-Gone isn’t just about staying alive–it’s about eliminating the competition. Have a watch for yourself.

Fall Guys has seen a record-breaking, and sometimes server-breaking, surge of interest since it first released on August 4. This includes game streaming, with Fall Guys taking out the top spot on Twitch more often than not, even while it was still in beta. The kind of gameplay showcased above shows exactly why Fall Guys is just as addictive to watch as it is to play.

The GameSpot review of Fall Guys called it “easily the most approachable and welcoming battle royale yet. Its bursting color and varied game modes do a good job of reeling you in and keeping you hooked, even if a handful feel at odds with the easygoing nature of its premise.”

Blizzcon will be held online on February 19-20, 2021
Blizzard

After cancelling this year’s BlizzCon convention due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Blizzard has announced that it will hold a replacement show online. BlizzConline (yep) will be held on February 19th-20th, 2021 with all the latest news around its popular franchises including World of Warcraft, Overwatch, Diablo, Hearthstone and Starcraft.

Blizzard announced major new titles at BlizzCon 2019, including Diablo 4 and Overwatch 2, so we’ll likely get some updates about those. It will also hold a “Community Showcase” that will allow “cosplay crafters, artists, and other community creators to participate in the show and put their talent on display through a mix of world-class competition and exciting exhibitions,” Blizzard wrote.

Those activities might not be as fun online as in-person, but as Blizzard notes, they’ll be more accessible, as gamers from around the world can tune in. The company said it it still has a lot of planning to do and that it would be “some time” before it can reveal more details.

Microsoft keeps the same price for its new wireless Xbox controllers

Xbox Wireless Controller
Microsoft

On Tuesday morning Microsoft will start taking pre-orders for its next-generation console family, the Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S. While the consoles will work with existing Xbox One gamepads, if you want a second Xbox Wireless Controller to maintain the subtle tweaks, low latency connection and dedicated Share button shown off in March, it will cost $60. That’s the same price as its predecessor, and, as Microsoft had confirmed previously, still means it uses AA batteries right out of the box.

Xbox Wireless Controller - Shock Blue

Microsoft

If you’d prefer a play-and-charge solution, Microsoft is selling a rechargeable battery pack and USB-C cable combo for $25, all set for delivery on November 10th along with the new consoles. Sony’s DualSense PS5 gamepad, by comparison, costs $70, but comes with its rechargeable battery built-in. While the Series X comes with an all-black controller and the Series S comes with one that’s all-white, Microsoft will also sell a two-toned Shock Blue version at launch.

The other Xbox accessory we’d like to know more about — that Seagate 1TB expansion SSD — still remains without a price.

Whether or not you’re upgrading to the new systems right away, Microsoft announced that its Xbox Design Lab will go away temporarily on October 14th, so if you’d like to put together a custom controller, then now is the time. It’s supposed to come back in 2021 in an upgraded form, but we don’t have any details on the changes just yet.

Good evening Shacknews, it’s finally Friday night. I made it. You made it. We made it. What a week it’s been. There has been a metric tonne of news announced this week, covering all sides of the games industry. It’s a great time to be a gamer, and it’s only going to get better as the year goes on. Now, how about we take a little stroll together across some of our articles here on Shacknews and then take a look at what’s going on around the internet?


In case you missed it at Shacknews:


And now… Other Stuff From The Internet!!!

This time, correlation is 100% causation

There’s a bigger secret happening here. Perhaps IHOP is making bigfoots?


Ruth Bader Ginsberg has passed away

Though many will be sad, now is the time to tap into the anger. Go out and vote. Go out and vote like your life depends on it, because it does.


Aliens confirmed

Cyberpunk really does have it all.


Master of Sneak

Okay. That’s it. I’m getting Among Us.


For the 21yo gamers

I hear it comes with a side of Doritos and an XP bonus for Halo or Call of Duty, dealer’s choice.


Xbox/PS or sheep-thing

I assume the sheep is a Pokeman.


And now, Spelunky 2 death montage!

Phew. That’s a lot of shenanigans.


Price stalemate

Save $100 and lose a disc drive. Worth it? Maybe. Come and tell us what you think of the most recent PlayStation 5 showcase.


Any guesses on what the next PlayStation will be called?

My money’s on PlayStation 6.


Princess Toe-Beans and Beemo

These are Blake’s adorable kitties. Aren’t they cute!
