At the start of Death Stranding, players are asked to input their birthday. It supposedly affects a condition called DOOMS, which grants characters special powers.

Sometimes when I’m playing a game and it ain’t great or I’m bored, I’ll wish I was playing something else. That usually means exiting the game and loading up a new video game.

The Battlefield series is renowned for its easter eggs. Whether it’s locked doors that take a year to open, giant sharks, or extremely well-hidden guns, there’s always something hiding in the shadows.

Red Dead Redemption 2 is no different. Players are finding all sorts of strange things around the massive map.
