    Gaming News From Around the Globe

    Nintendo will host an Invitational for Super Smash Bros and Splatoon 2 at E3 2018
    This is one of the most shocking pieces of gaming news I have heard in 2018. Nintendo, the same company that temporarily shut down EVO from streaming and hosting their game Super Smash bros. Melee is now hosting their own Invitational. For some context, Nintendo in the past has been very vocal on how they make their games for fun only and not for competition which is basically everything eSports is not. Until now. While I am sure their motto is still to prioritize fun over competition, Nintendo has given in to the wants of the fans and are now hosting their own Invitational for their two big titles on the Switch, Super Smash Bros and Splatoon 2. These will be taking place in June during the E3 2018 event.

    Fortnite: Starter Pack, Guided Missle, & Dance Competition.
    The updates and content keep rolling in for the game of the year. A couple days ago Epic Games have added a Starter Pack to their Battle Royale which includes a Rogue Agent skin, Catalyst Back bling, and 600 V-Bucks for you to spend all for $4.99. If your somebody who hasn't convinced themselves to buy skins or the Battle Passes because you don't want to spend that much than this is definitely for you. For a low cost you can add some flair to your account and also give you some in game cash to buy some extra stuff like dances to add to your arsenal.

    Next we have the Guided Missile which was added 2 days ago as well. This is a legendary rocket launcher that allows you to control the missile after launch like your flying an airplane. This has opened the door for some very interesting highlights including this one here. The missile is able to be surfed on like a normal RPG missile and if you time it right you can ride your own. Also it can be shot out of the sky. For balance sake this is great because this thing would be very hard to deal with if you could not fight back. Being that it is legendary you will only find it in chests and air drops.

    Do you have dance moves? Do you want to be added into a video game? If you possess both of these than the Boogie Down contest is for you. Fortnite officially announced via their Youtube Channel that there will be a dance contest including 100 winners. How do you enter? Post a video of yourself doing your signature dance on Instagram, Facebook, or Twitter using the #boogiedown. If you win your emote will be in the game forever!

    Far Cry 5 is out
    One of the better franchises is out and hasn't lost its step from the looks of it. Based around a religious cult in rural Montana this game includes humor, interesting political easter eggs, tons of action, and a dog. Far Cry 5 is available on PS4, PC, and Xbox One for $60 USD.

    The gem nobody expected, A Way Out
    I will be the first person to take a hot dump on EA as a company and for very good reasons. Star Wars was pay to win, Mass Effect had launch issues, and much more. But A Way Out cannot be ignored. For starters it isn't made by EA but rather backed by them through the EA Originals program. The game is developed by Hazelight Studios out of Stockholm Sweden. From what it seems, this is their first game. A Way Out is a single player and co-op prison escape game. You play as these two Italian guys who both hate some dude on the outside for different reasons and have the idea to escape. To escape you will need to work with each other both mechanically in game but also with good communication. Without giving away anything, lets just say this game offers more than meets the eye as far as story. If you and a buddy are looking to play a split screen for old times sake I highly recommend giving this game a shot. If you want to just watch some videos of it being played, Sodapoppin and Forsen have some videos of them beating it on their channels.

    Path of Exile: Royale
    For April Fools PoE added a 100 person Battle Royale mode to their game. They even went as far as to changing the name of the game on Steam to Path of Exile: Royale. This mode that started as a meme to the popular battle royale genre has actually got a lot of momentum behind it. If you are playing in the current season you will notice that PoE Trade and Trade Chat have been very dead ever since this battle royale has been implemented, which to me shows how popular it is among the players. In this mode you start off on a map and just level up collecting loot and putting in your skill points per usual but it's all open world PVP. Like a normal Battle Royale the play area will shrink periodically. Winner of each map will receive a Rhoa Dinner to display in their Hideout. Full trailer can be seen here.

    The World of Warcraft Diary
    An interesting Kickstarter emerged recently called The World of Warcraft Diary by John Staats. This is not sponsored by us but felt it was appropriate since WoW is a huge part of the website and it is definitely an interesting look inside the 3D level design behind the game. From the Kickstarter: "The WoW Diary provides a candid and detailed look at the twists and turns inside computer game development. Its author was WoW's first 3D level designer and he writes about the people behind the game and the philosophy behind their work. " If you are somebody interested in game design or just an avid WoW fan this might be something worth looking into.

    Community Interview

    This report I interviewed one of OwnedCores most notable and active posters in the WoW Exploration Section, Madorisiath.

    Q: We now know you as one of the most active WoW Explorers here on OwnedCore, but what got you into WoW in the first place?
    A: I started to play WoW in 2005 because I was a big fan of Warcraft 3 and MMORPG was completely new for me.

    Q: When did you realize exploring around was something you enjoyed doing on Azeroth?
    A: I realized that in 3 times. The first time was my leveling adventure in vanilla. Everything was new for me and I saw Ironforge Airport when I traveled the world with the flight master and I immediately intrigued. I started to find a way and I thought a legit way was hidden but noooo. Then I found a first little wall jumping trick

    The Second time was a random player who whispered me in Ironforge and showed me how to duel in the capital. He sheeped me and I was launched inside Old Ironforge.

    The third time was the same player who showed me the closed cavern of time. After all of that I decided to find every secret place and new methods.

    Q: Do you remember your first big exploration? ie GM Island
    A: My first exploration was Ironforge Airport

    Q: Why do you think OwnedCore's WoW Exploration section is thriving so much?
    A: There are a lot of players, explorers on Ownedcore exploration section since many years, I watched in the shadows for several years, and recently I noticed this was not as active as before, so I decided to make some little videos and screens to wake up explorers, to bring back those who left the game ( because of WOD apocalypse ), or bring back those who think Blizzard has fixed all stuff and who think exploration is dead.

    Q: Do you play any other aspects of WoW such as high end raiding, pvp, pet battling, mount farming, etc?
    A: Yeah in Vanilla I played in outdoor pvp with a rogue hehe, I loved the good times about model changing when it was not dangerous to creates special zones in live server like for example " Dopefish my burning valentine " to change the look of Elwynn Forest for example... Now I don't like pvp anymore in Legion, i'm focus on PVE content, quests, farming, dungeons and raid

    Q: What other games are in your arsenal besides WoW?
    A: Actually I play only WoW and Minecraft, but in time I played at MDK, Tomb Raider 1 and all series, warcraft 3, final fantasy, metal arms glitch in the system, GTA san andreas, ratchet and clank, red dead redemption, and so many other games...

    Q:Where do you see the future of WoW exploration in the upcoming year or two with BFA on the Horizon?
    A: I see a lot of new exploration content for the future

    Q: Do you have any big plans as far as BFA Exploration? Got your eyes on some spots you want to get your hands on?
    A: Yes I have some plans but we'll see that when the time comes, i'm not in the alpha
