Fall Guys gets a limited time Ratchet & Clank crossover event

Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout is getting a Ratchet & Clank crossover. The limited-time event will bring Sony’s mascots to the battle royale game via skins, emotes, and more cosmetic items.

Fall Guys - Ratchet and Clank Limited Time Events Reveal!

Fall Guys has had several crossovers with other game franchises since it launched last summer. Players have been able to acquire skins from games like Doom Eternal and Half-Life. The Ratchet & Clank skins mark the first time a Sony IP has appeared in the game.

The game will get two separate weeklong events. The first begins on July 26 and centers around Ratchet. Players can complete special challenges and unlock items based on the iconic Lombax. A special banner, pattern, and emote will be available, but the main prize is a full Ratchet costume. That event will run through August 1.

The Clank event begins on August 6 and will run through August 15. It’ll function the same way as the Ratchet event, but with costumes and cosmetics based on the robot instead.

Players who compete in both the Ratchet and Clank events will get a special banner featuring Rivet from Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart.

This isn’t Sony’s only character crossover event. Earlier today, the company revealed that it is adding Horizon Zero Dawn heroine Aloy to Genshin Impact. Players can grab the character and her signature bow as part of the game’s latest update. Sony previously added Kratos from God of War to Fortnite.

Fall Guys is currently in its fifth season, which has a jungle theme. Players can hop into the update now ahead of the Ratchet event on July 26.

Babylon’s Fall will still get full support after weak launch
A group of Gallu in a threatening stance in Babylon's Fall.

Babylon's Fall from PlatinumGames and Square Enix will likely go down as one of the worst games of 2022. Despite that, the developers are promising continued support for the live-service title.
"There are no plans to reduce the scale of development on Babylon's Fall," a statement in the latest set of patch notes reads. "Content up to the end of season 2 is now practically complete and we have started work on season 3 and beyond. We will continue to provide new content for the game and make improvements based on player feedback, striving to keep existing players playing and to attract newcomers."

This multiplayer action game was released on March 3 and was immediately met with criticism over its ugly visuals and sluggish gameplay. Babylon's Fall currently sits at a 39 on review aggregate site Metacritic and appears to have flopped on PC as the multiplayer-focused game only seems to ever have a player count in the hundreds. It's a particularly disappointing release for PlatinumGames, which is known for strong single-player action games, though it may start to focus more on live-service titles in the future.
Publisher Square Enix now seems to be in damage control mode as it put out a survey asking players what they'd like to see improved and is now promising continued support in a post. The patch notes detail new content updates, explain the feedback-driven updates coming in late March and beyond, and tease a Nier: Automata collaboration event, but the developer and publisher's promise to continue supporting the game is what sticks out the most.
Having to reassure players that your live-service isn't shutting down just two weeks after launch isn't a good look and speaks to the low state of the game. Square Enix has had a good track record with sticking with live-service games that had rocky launches like the original version of Final Fantasy XIV and Marvel's Avengers. Still, there's no doubt that those games aren't great company for Babylon's Fall to keep.
Babylon's Fall is available now for PC, PS4, and PS5. Square Enix plans to release a demo of the game on Steam on March 23.

Google just hosted an event on October 19 to unveil its new Pixel phones, but the company ended up doing a bit more than that. Yes, Google is launching the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro -- something it had not been shy about sharing details on in the months leading up to the event. However, additional reports have claimed that Google could be launching a Pixel Fold, a Pixel Watch, and a new Pixel Pass service as well. Those reports ended up being only partly true.

At Google’s Fall Pixel Launch event, the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro were the highlights of the show. We also saw other announcements like Pixel Pass, which gives you regular upgrades, a subscription to Google Play Pass, and an extended warranty on your Pixel phone, as well as a new and more powerful Pixel charging stand.

What we didn’t see are a few products in need of an update or brand-new devices in certain spaces like wearables. This doesn’t mean we won’t see these products sometime in the future, but they just won’t be coming now. Here’s what Google didn’t announce at the fall Pixel launch event.
