Animal Crossing’s tarantula island has been ruined by giant water bugs

On April 1, Animal Crossing: New Horizons got a refreshed island: There are now cherry blossoms! Eggs! Zipper! These are all good things, depending on who you ask. But the April update has also done something terrible. It’s broken the self-made tarantula island, which lets player collect lots and lots of spiders — one of the more pricey bugs in the game. (8,000 Bells! And 1.5 times that if you’re selling to Flick.)

Before the update, you could create your own tarantula island by essentially razing most Mystery Island Tour islands. You’d clear off flowers, dig up trees, and break open stones; the idea is to remove most spawn items for Animal Crossing: New Horizons’ bugs, forcing tarantulas to populate the space. The problem with the April update is that it added a bug that you can’t force off the island: the giant water bug.

Giant water bugs spawn — you guessed it — in water. They’re more annoying to clear away than the wharf roaches that live on an island’s rocks, because they’re hard to catch. You can just stomp on the roaches and they’ll scatter. Water bugs won’t flinch even if you sprint by ’em. Tarantulas may still spawn, but it’s a lot less likely.

To test it out, I cleared an island and was able to fill my inventory with water bugs without spotting a single tarantula. Others on Twitter have reported the same thing. It’s not a total loss, though. Water bugs don’t sell for nearly as much as — 2,000 Bells — but with the amount I caught, I could rack up a pretty penny.

The good news is that there’s still a chance you can land on the tarantula island, which doesn’t require destroying the place: Tarantulas will just spawn there. Until you land there, there’s a lot of water bugs in your future.

HBO is making hundreds of hours of films and TV free to stream without a subscription

Tired of friends telling you it’s time to catch up on David Simon’s beloved five-season crime drama The Wire? Tired of telling your friends they need to watch The Wire so you can discuss it, and having them say, “Eh, I don’t have HBO?” Either way, your moment has arrived. HBO announced Thursday that it will be making nearly 500 hours of its original series and licensed films available on its streaming platform free of charge, as of Friday, April 3. The content will be available “for a limited time” on HBONOW.com, HBOGO.com, and their associated apps.

The film selection is obviously select and somewhat limited, though it’s a good time to revisit the light, fun features Detective Pikachu and The Lego Movie 2. But the free TV series selection is an impressive roster of some of HBO’s big hits, including The Wire, The Sopranos, Silicon Valley, Veep, and Six Feet Under. All seasons of those shows will be available to stream.

The move comes during a period where streaming services are seeing a huge boom in business due to the widespread closing of movie theaters, the postponing of major new film releases, and the number of people isolating themselves at home to limit the spread of coronavirus. An increasing number of streaming and other subscription services are currently offering free monthlong trial accounts to get streaming fans hooked, including the horror service Shudder, CBS All Access, Showtime, Film Movement Plus, IFC Films, and others.

Here’s what HBO plans to make available on Friday. The streaming platform is encouraging viewers to look for “interactive stunts” around this content on HBO’s social media outlets, and to track and share the hashtag #StayHomeBoxOffice.

Windbound looks like a Moana-meets-Breath-of-the-Wild adventure

With a trailer evoking both Moana and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Deep Silver and Australia’s 5 Lives Studios announced Windbound for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Windows PC and Xbox One. It launches Aug. 28.

In the game, a young warrior washes ashore on the mysterious Forbidden Islands, where she learns to craft, hunt, adapt, and survive. An accompanying release touted “an immersive sailing experience,” in the gameplay, as well as a procedurally generated world with a dynamic wildlife population.

Scattered about the islands are ruins whose secrets will reveal the lore behind Windbound. 5 Lives promises players will be able to “explore as far as the eye can see,” on a boat that can be custom crafted to suit their needs and playing style.

5 Lives Studios is the developer behind 2015’s Satellite Reign, a crowdfunded spiritual successor to the Syndicate series. (5 Lives’ staff includes alumni of that franchise.)

Nintendo Switch consoles are often sold out, but you can still pick up the handheld-only Switch Lite, which is perfect for portable gaming.

SXSW 2020’s canceled film festival will now stream free on Amazon Prime Video

Due to the cancellation of the South by Southwest film festival (SXSW) earlier this year, Amazon Prime Video and SXSW are teaming up to launch a digital film festival later this month.

This new, digital event is “Prime Video presents the SXSW 2020 Film Festival Collection” and gives filmmakers an opportunity to submit their film for screening. The event is exclusive to Prime Video, but is free for all viewers — no Amazon Prime membership needed. The duo is looking to set the 10-day, one-time event for late April, although there isn’t a concrete date yet.

Participating filmmakers will earn a screening fee for Amazon’s right to show their movie to the world. SXSW has already shared details with filmmakers, who are now able to opt into the online event. Amazon and SXSW did not provide a list of agreed filmmakers.

Head of Amazon Studio, Jennifer Salke, had this to say about the partnership:

We’re honored to be able to provide a space for the SXSW filmmakers to share their hard work and passion with audiences for the first time. It’s been a privilege collaborating with Janet Pierson and the SXSW team to bring these diverse and inspiring films to viewers around the country. We are supporters of SXSW and other independent film festivals, and hope this online film festival can help give back some of that experience, and showcase artists and films that audiences might otherwise not have had the chance to see.

SXSW normally premieres a variety of films early in the year, showing off both upcoming feature films and documentaries. The SXSW 2020 lineup included screenings of David Lowery’s The Green Knight with Dev Patel, Alicia Vikander, and Joel Edgerton, as well as Judd Apatow’s latest film starring Pete Davidson: The King of Staten Island. Some of SXSW 2019’s headliners included Booksmart, The Beach Bum, and Pet Sematary.

Call of Duty: Warzone players get free weekend in Modern Warfare’s multiplayer

Players of Call of Duty Warzone, the free-to-play battle royale variant that Activision launched a month ago, will get a free weekend in the main multiplayer of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare.

The free weekend begins at 10 a.m. PDT on Friday, April 3 and runs until Monday, April 6 at 10 a.m. PDT. It’s available to anyone with the Warzone client (which is itself a subset of the main game). Players will get access through the Warzone lobby in the form of the “Stocked Up/Locked Down” 24/7 playlist.

That playlist will offer two maps: Atlas Superstore and Shoot House. Players will get Team Deathmatch, Domination, Hardpoint, Kill Confirmed, and Headquarters modes. Activision’s announcement has more details and advice on how to play both maps.

Call of Duty Warzone launched on March 10. It is altogether a different thing from Modern Warfare’s standard multiplayer, although it is free to play. In addition to the battle royale, it features a mode called Plunder. Progress in both games transfers, so players will see their levels and cosmetic customizations in Warzone show up in the free weekend’s multiplayer, and whatever they earn there will stay with them after the free weekend. Cross-platform play is also available for this free weekend.

Animal Crossing: New Horizons Young Spring Bamboo recipe list

During the springtime, Animal Crossing: New Horizons players on Switch are able to collect Young Spring Bamboo from bamboo thickets.

Based on our tests, it appears that players can only harvest the Young Spring Bamboo during spring months. This means it’ll be available from March to May for Northern Hemisphere players and from September to November for Southern Hemisphere players.

Recipes that require Young Spring Bamboo can only drop during these months. The recipes will drop from balloons. They can also appear in Bottled Messages on the beach.

Note that there are other bamboo furnishings in the game but these are the ones that the game considers “seasonal,” since they use resources (in this case, Young Spring Bamboo) that can only be collected at specific times of the year.

To get Young Spring Bamboo, just hit bamboo thickets with your Stone Axe. It will spit out Young Spring Bamboo and Bamboo randomly. It will still drop the regular Bamboo year-round.

If you don’t have any bamboo thickets growing on your island, you can find some on Mystery Island Tours.

We’ve put together all of the seasonal bamboo recipes we know of below.

How to sell to the new fish vendor, C.J., in Animal Crossing: New Horizons

Animal Crossing: New Horizons on Nintendo Switch is filled with all sorts of colorful villagers and friendly vendors. Many of the sales folk you’ll come across will join your island eventually, but some of them like the Turnip vendor Daisy Mae, only show up at specific times. However other visitors will come at random times. If you are looking to make some good Bells with your fish, then keep your eye out for C.J., who replaces Chip from previous games.

This boisterous beaver will randomly appear on your island and will hang out until the next day. C.J. is a unique vendor since he offers two different features when they visit: you can sell your fish to them for 1.5x their normal value and you can commission them to make fish models for you.

If you see the “seasports” fanatic hanging out on your island, then here’s what you need to know about C.J. and how to make the best of their time on your island.

How to sell fish to C.J.

Unlike the bug vendor Flick, who will buy your insects for a markup right away, C.J. requires a simple challenge to be completed before he buys your fish.

The tasks are random, fairly simple, and usually involve fish. When we first encountered C.J., he asked us to “catch five fish in a row.” As we began catching fish, our villager would mention how many fish we had left to complete C.J.’s challenge. Once we were done, our villager instructed us to head back the beaver. We’ve also seen C.J. ask for other challenges, such as “catching three fish of the same size,” so be prepared as his requests may be different when you encounter him.

Once you’ve completed C.J.’s challenge, he will then be open to buying your fish for 1.5x of their normal value. For instance, if you look at our Animal Crossing: New Horizons fish price guide, you’ll see that a horse mackeral costs 150 Bells if you sell it at Nook’s Cranny. However, because of his markup, C.J. will buy them for 225 Bells.

If you are looking to make the most of our your fishing skill, and are willing to wait around for C.J., then make sure to keep your most expensive fish in storage until he appears.

How to commission C.J. for art

Making a little extra money with your fish isn’t the only thing C.J. can help you do.

If you hand over three of any fish, you can commission C.J. to create a custom model of that fish for free. Just simply give them three fish of the same type and C.J. will mail you a model of that fish the next day.

You can only commission one fish at a time with C.J., so if there’s a certain fish you’d love to keep inside your home, it’s best to save those in your storage until C.J. arrives.

Pokémon Go Tricky Pokémon event guide: Field Research, Stunfisk, and Shiny Croagunk

To celebrate April Fool’s Day, some Pokémon that have trickster personalities are spawning in abundance in Pokémon Go.

The event lasts from April 1 at 8 a.m. until April 7 at 10 p.m. in your local time.

This includes Gastly, Haunter, Ditto, Voltorb, Foongus, Croagunk, and Aipom. Stunfisk is also making its Pokémon Go debut during this time. For those who don’t have a Ditto, which disguises itself as other Pokémon until after you catch it, this may be a good opportunity to fill in that spot on your Pokédex.

Throughout the event, Croagunk and Aipom will appear to photobomb you when you take AR photos, instead of Smeargle.

Croagunk, the poison- and fighting-type frog, will also be appearing Shiny for the first time, turning from its usual blue color to a neat teal. Toxicroak turns from blue and orange to a lighter blue with pink accents.
