When it launched earlier this week, the Switch version of Cuphead came with some additional features that weren't in the original Xbox One, Mac, and PC versions of the game. Well, now those features are on every platform.
The game's 1.2 update, out now for Xbox One, PC, and Mac, includes some cool quality-of-life features. You can now choose to play the entire game as Mugman rather than Cuphead, giving him (who's basically Luigi to Cuphead's Mario) the chance to shine. The two play identically, so who you choose is entirely up to preference.
Additionally, the update adds fully animated videos in place of stills for all of the game's cutscenes. This, along with a hose of new animations sprinkled throughout fights themselves, will hopefully make the game's art style pop more than ever. New localizations have been added for eleven new languages (French, Italian, German, European Spanish, Latin Spanish, Brazilian Portuguese, Polish, Russian, Japanese, Korea..
Sony Interactive Entertainment is producing what looks like a full-length documentary chronicling the development of 2018's God of War, and you'll soon be able to watch it for free.

The spectral blades super was introduced in Destiny 2's Forsaken expansion, and have void-flavored Hunters a super ability outside of their normal Shadowshot, a one-and-done ability that tethered enemies to a particular location. Spectral blades, however, lets them roam around the battlefield and take easy kills for a short period.
The issues, as Bungie points out in their This Week At Bungie blog post, is that spectral blades lasted too long, and that it made its user a little too survivable, especially while they were under its cloaking effect. “Previously, this Super had the highest damage reduction of all the roaming Supers, either in stealth or not,” Bungie's sandbox team said.
