For trainers that missed their chance to catch a Shiny Meltan back in February, Niantic is offering up a second opportunity. The Meltan themed event is returning to the game on Wednesday, April 24th, where fans can add this elusive Shiny Mythical Beast to their collection.
Meltan is Back!
Meltan is unique in Pokemon Go due to the fact that trainers need a specific item known as a Mystery Box in order to summon the monster. Normally, after opening the Mystery Box players have 30 minutes to catch as many Meltan as they can find, then after the allotted time, they need to wait another 7 days before opening the box again. During the Meltan event, Niantic has decreased the box spawn time from 7 days to only 3 days, allowing fans to catch way more monsters than they could before.
Players will have a chance to catch a Shiny Meltan every time they open the Mystery Box. This beast can be distinguished by its darker head and blue tail. Trainers that are able to capture a Shiny Meltan can evolve the monster into a Shiny Melmetal. Unfortunately, players will only have until May 5th to capture a Shiny Meltan, so act quickly if you'd like to capture one.
Niantic is not waiting long after the Meltan event ends to host their next Community Day event, which is scheduled for Sunday, May 19th. This time around Community Day will focus on the Gen 3 starter, Torchic. Players will also be able to earn triple the amount of Stardust during May's Community Day event.

If you guys haven’t heard by now, Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, is not only destroying the gaming scene, but it is also, I daresay, destroying gaming controllers near you.
Sekiro was made by From Software, which is also responsible for the hell that is the Dark Souls franchise which we all know and love…to hate. With complex controls and even more complex enemies, Sekiro takes you for a ride like you’ve never seen in the ‘Sengoku Period’ of Japan.
Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice Boss Guide
In this article, we show you how to defeat the top 7 most difficult bosses in Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice. If you haven’t played this game yet, be advised, this article WILL contain spoilers, and blood…lots of blood.
1. Guardian Ape/Headless Ape
Location: Sunken Valley – Bodhisattva Valley
Rewards: Memory: Guardian Ape (Strength Upgrade), Slender Finger
Strategy: This boss contains two phases.
Phase 1: The Monkey
He is not able to block your attacks
Avoid his high damage grapples
1st grapple – contains a sweep attack that can only be dodged by jumping.
2nd grapple – he charges at you then bodyslams.
As red attack icon shows, remember to always jump
Best strat is to stun with FireCrackers every 20-ish seconds
Run behind him and throw as many standard sword attacks as you can
Combat arts are too slow
When he staggers, keep hitting him until he runs away
This occurs 3 times
He can fart poison and throw poisonous poo at you
Keep antidotes in your quick items
You cut his head off…then what?
Phase 2: The Headless Monkey and his Huge Sword
Contains completely new move set and becomes a lot more powerful
Only 2 moves that give you an opening to attack
First move – He raises his sword in the air attacking from top to bottom
DEFLECT it as soon as it lands. He staggers as you stand below his belly attacking him as quickly as possible.
Second move – he leaps forward attempting a single powerful strike
Jump over him then land 2-3 basic attacks before blocking again.
Avoid the headless ape unless he uses these two moves
If the ape jumps in the air, prepare to jump as he comes back down
You can also jump over his area-wide sweep attack after he lands the jump
Lastly, make sure to have the pacifying agent consumable handy
He will instantly kill you if your terror gauge fills up.
Avoid the red terror fog by unlocking the camera from your enemy and run away!
It’s ok…we won’t judge you.
2. Headless Ape and his Lady
Location: Ashina Depths
Rewards: Bestowal Ninjutsu, Guardian Ape Immortality Severed Trophy/ Achievement, 2 x Prayer Beads
Same as second phase headless ape, but slower
Contains two health bars that deplete quicker as you are stronger by this point
He’s slower and doesn’t attack as often as before
Block his chain attacks then go crazy with basic attacks as you revolve around him.
Since he’s slow to turn around, you can really get some damage in
After you deplete his first health bar, he will run away to call his lady
Attack him while he’s calling
The second ape is very weak
Throw Firecrackers at her then go for the instant execution
Again, repeat the same process as before with the headless ape
Be sure to run away when he uses the red terror mist
Once he’s defeated, execute him one more time to rip out his spine.
Easier said than done right?

Apex Legends latest patch introduced fan requested armor for two characters, a new bonus XP event, and tweaked a bunch of the weapons to make them a more viable choice for combat. The patch has already gone live so players are free to experiment with all the latest changes.
According to the patch notes that have been posted on the Apex Legends Subreddit, the biggest changes have been introduced to both Caustic and Gibraltar. According to the community manager behind the game, Jay Frechette, these two characters as well as Pathfinder were taking more damage than other heroes because of their increased hitboxes. Readjusting them worked for Pathfinder, but Caustic and Gibraltar were still at a noticeable disadvantage. To compensate for this, the team added a 10% armor bonus passive ability to the two characters, which is known as Fortified. They also received a variety of other tweaks to make them more competitive in the meta.
Apex Legends Update: "But Wait, There's More!"
On top of those changes, Respawn added a way for players to earn more XP for their Battle Pass. Fans will notice that their first top 5 of the day will net them a whole Battle Pass tier, which can be taken advantage of every day until the bonus XP event is over.
Other changes include weapon buffs for the Longbow DMR and the Havoc as well as nerfs for the G7 Scout, Wingman, and Spitfire. Respawn Entertainment has also increased the speed of the jump ship.

God of War was one of the biggest critical and economical video game success stories from last year. Sony has no plans for an expansion to last year's Game of the Year title. Cory Barlog, Director for God of War, confirmed this today on Twitter.
What's Next for God of War?
"There is no DLC coming for the game. Sorry," said Barlog on Twitter. This was in response to a separate tweet that seemingly teased a new God of War announcement. Barlog wanted to clear up any confusion and confirm that this message was referencing the game's anniversary celebration.
Just so no one gets the wrong idea - there is no DLC coming for the game. Sorry.
It has already been confirmed that fans will receive a free PS4 theme and avatar set, and Barlog teased that even more was on the way. But this announcement won't be related to God of War DLC.
DLC is "Too Ambitious"
Barlog spoke earlier this year to Kinda Funny and said that he was interested in making a DLC, but he was told it was too ambitious and the idea was ultimately scrapped.
It was allegedly going to be similar to the huge story expansions that both Last of Us and Uncharted 4 received, which warranted their own stand-alone expansions. "It would [have] ended up being its own thing," Barlog said of the God of War expansion we'll never see. "Rightfully so, everybody said, 'Dude, this is crazy, this isn't DLC, this is a little too big."
The future of God of War is still out of focus. It's not clear what the developers have planned to keep God of War alive. However, the Gigamax Games crew will be keeping a close eye on any announcements. Be sure to visit GigamaxGames.com again soon for the latest gaming news!

Over 2 Million People Love To Torture Themselves
This news is pulled from a post on Activision's website that reveals Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice sold two million copies across all of its platforms including Xbox One, PC, and PS4 in only 10 days. The announcement was also quick to note that the game was sitting at a 90 Metacritic rating across all platforms as well.

[Update] Overwatch Storm Rising has been announced. A detailed look at the new event can be found, here.
It hasn't been long since Blizzard rolled out their latest Overwatch hero, Baptiste, and now it appears their gearing up for a new event. Fans have recently discovered a teaser that could point to the theme, a news article from Havana, Cuba.
Overwatch Event Time!
The article, penned by the fictional author, Marise Solis, details the story of Don Rumbotico and his rum business. Although, this company has gotten so large that its original purpose has been long forgotten. It looks like Havana has gained a few private investors that are buying land and filling the territory with armed guards. This could indicate a new map for players to explore in the near future.
Further indicating that Havana, Cuba will be the game's next location, the flight indicator in Numbani Airport lists the capital city as a destination.
Blizzard released a second fictional article indicating that Florida and Bahamas are preparing for a category 3 storm known as, Hurricane Fernand. The hurricane is originating in the north and passing conveniently through Havana. Every civilian has been evacuated so the area is just waiting to be torn apart in a fight between good and evil.
We'll be sure to have an update when Blizzard finally pulls back the curtain so be sure to check back here at GigamaxGames.com!

Warframe is now available on the Nintendo Switch. This free-to-play space-ninja shooter/hack-and-slash continues to make it way to new audiences years after its release. Known for its liberal use of microtransactions, this fact kep the Gigamax Games crew away from exploring the Warframe universe. However, after its release on the Nintendo Switch, it was time to take a closer look.
Warframe YouTube Playlist with Gigamax Games
Warframe is beloved by many, hated by some. It took a few tries before one of the crew was able to fully embrace Warframe and still, the other half of the Gigamax crew can’t see beyond the pay-to-win aspect of the game. Still, the revisit to Warframe was a welcomed surprise. After countless content updates and quality of life improvements, this is a very different game than the original that was released in 2013.
Warframe embraces the games-as-a-service model to a T. Give the audience a taste of the content and lock some cool stuff behind a paywall. This has a tendency to anger gamers, however, Warframe was able to break out and offer enough quality content to keep people coming back. Beyond the pay-to-win feel, it was made clear early on that if players want to grind their way through the game, they would be able to work around any microtransactions. It didn’t have to cost real money to slay aliens with ease, but purchasing in-game currency is an option.
Thank You for Watching!
It means the world that you took the time to stop by. If you want to see more Warframe, leave a comment on the video or at the bottom of this page! For more videos, every week, don’t forget to Subscribe, Like, Share and Comment!
After a recently aired special episode of Persona 5: The Animation titled "Stars and Ours," the developer behind the critically acclaimed RPG series, Atlus, revealed some more information about the mysterious game, Persona 5R. The trailer below shows the title of the game is Persona 5 The Royal.
Persona 5 The Royal, Game Name Reveal Trailer
While Atlus didn't provide any further details on what the game is, they teased that more information will be coming April 24 during a live concert event called, Persona Super Live 2019. Many suspect, due to the nature of previous Persona games and the trailer, that this title will be a Game of the Year edition that contains additional content.
The trailer for Persona 5 The Royal focuses on a new character who studies at the games high school, Shujin Academy, where most of the main characters also attend. In the trailer she is asked about her opinion on the Phantom Thieves, the vigilante group your player controls throughout the course of the game. She then points out that she does not exactly approve of their methods on crime fighting.
New Content Incoming
It's very possible that this new character will be the focus of the additional content. Atlus typically throws some new content into its re-released games, as fans have seen with their launches of Persona 3 FES and Persona 4 Golden. Many are guessing that this content will include a new palace and storyline.
We'll be sure to keep our eye on any updates regarding this title so for more Persona 5 The Royal news keep checking back with us here at GigamaxGames.com!
