Another special mention goes to Pokémon Let’s Go Pikachu and Eevee. These games only appeared at the end of 2018, so it is quite special that they ended so high.

Pokémon GO Limited Research all about Feebas
The Guardian admits she hasn’t played Pokémon Go for a while. Sometimes, however, she seems to be alone in that; so many people are still wildly excited about the mobile game. She publishes this news about Feebas especially for them.
This Water Type Pokémon is central to the upcoming round of Limited Research. You can know Feebas from Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire. If the fish has not made an impression, then you are forgiven. You will recognize its evolved shape immediately: Milotic.
Limited Research works like this: Special Field Research assignments appear in Pokémon Go for a short period of time. By successfully completing the assignments you can encounter a Feebas. That can also be a shiny version.
Spin the Photo Disc at nearby PokéStops to obtain Field Research tasks that lead to encounters with Feebas. And, if you’re lucky, you just might find a Shiny Feebas! ”
PS When the Guardian says “short”, she also means short. The assignments are available on January 19 from 11:00 to 14:00.
Ariana Grande is getting Eevee tattoo
Ariana Grande admitted to playing Pokémon: Let’s Go for 15 hours the day before yesterday. However, why that is exactly news is not known. The Guardian also did that when she was struck down by the flu during Christmas. But you don’t hear that in Shownieuws. Anyway, Grande took it a step further today. Our PeterKoelewijn scoffed that the singer had an Eevee tattoo. And that’s pretty cool in itself, right?
Battlefield V Lightning Strikes update drops this week
Battlefield V kicks off 2019 with Tides of War Chapter 2: Lightning Strikes. This update adds fixes, tweaks and content to the game on January 17. The Guardian highlights a few points:
One of the major fixes has to do with the time-to-death hassle. This will make it easier to find out who is responsible for your premature death. DICE has also worked on bullets, so that you can better see who you are targeting.
Tides of War Chapter 2: Lightning Strikes also adds a number of new weapons to Battlefield V, including the Zk-383 SMG (Medic), Modele 1944 semi-automatic rifle (Assault), and M1922 MMG (Support). You can earn these through weekly challenges during Lightning Strikes. Another addition is Squad Conquest, in which two teams of eight players compete against each other on the maps Rotterdam, Arras and Hamada. This mode is only available temporarily, from January 17th to January 30th.
This drop marks the beginning of Chapter 2 content for Battlefield V. In the near future, the return of Rush mode and a new Grand Operation are also promised.
Below a trailer, which summarizes it all nicely for you:
Lightning Strikes content will be added to Battlefield V on January 17.

You can now cross play all online match types in Rocket League, including casual, competitive and extra modes. Developer Psyonix has announced that support for cross-platform parties will follow soon. Until then you can invite your friends in private matches.
