Titanfall 2 Stuck on “Data Center Searching” – Solution

December 5, 2016 by Samantha Lienhard - Leave a comment

If you’ve been playing Titanfall 2, you might have encountered a glitch where you can’t enter multiplayer because the game becomes stuck on the “data center: searching” screen. Alternately, it may get stuck during the “contacting Respawn servers” message.

Regardless of which spot the game gets stuck at, this glitch will prevent you from playing until you fix it. So, what causes the Titanfall 2 “data center searching” glitch? It appears to be a simple problem: if you have multiple network adapters enabled, the game can’t access the list of data centers. Fortunately, this means it has a simple solution for many people.

Common Solution

You need to disable whichever network adapter you aren’t using. If you’re playing Titanfall 2 with a wi-fi connection, disable its Ethernet connection. If you’re playing with an Ethernet connection, disable the wi-fi connection.

On the PC, you can do this by going to your Control Panel, selecting “Network and Connections,” and then choosing “Network Connections.” All adapters should be displayed. If you right-click the one you aren’t using, you should be able to disable it.

Alternate Solutions

However, while this is the most common solution, it doesn’t seem to work for everyone. If it doesn’t solve the problem or you only have one network adapter, here are a few things you can try:

  • Check your adapter’s settings. If it has options related to gaming that aren’t enabled, try enabling them.
  • Disable every network device, including hidden devices. Enable only the one you intend to use.
  • Change the priority of your network cards by following this helpful guide.
  • Reset your adapter.

Unfortunately, none of these are guaranteed workarounds. Respawn said they are looking into the problem. With any luck, an official fix will be released soon.

Watch Dogs 2: Wrench – The Spiky Masked Man

Watch Dogs 2: Wrench

In Watch Dogs 2, “Wrench” is one of the main characters, a DedSec hacker who works as the group’s engineer. Thanks to his sense of humor and unique personality, he’s already become a favorite character for many fans.

According to his profile found on the official Watch Dogs website, Wrench got his nickname because “he’s the wrench you throw into somebody’s gears to grind them to a halt.” Wrench’s real name is unknown, although the mission “The Name Game” suggests it might be Reginald.

Wrench’s profile goes on to describe him as a man with no fear, someone who goes further than the other members of DedSec. But don’t let that make you think Wrench is a serious, grim character. On the contrary, he’s energetic, excitable, and humorous… if also wild and dangerous.

One thing that immediately makes Wrench stand out from the others is his mask. Wrench wears a strange mask that uses an LED display to display expressions and emotes. The mask also alters his voice. So, why does Watch Dogs 2’s Wrench keep this mask on? Well, according to an in-game audio log, the FBI believes a troubled childhood led him to have difficulty conveying emotions and interacting with people. The mask allows him to display his feelings despite these troubles.

Wrench dislikes animals, as explained in the Watch Dogs 2 mission “Haum Sweet Home,” and even puppies make him nervous.

Wrench Jr.

Emotional difficulties and problems with animals aside, Wrench didn’t become DedSec’s engineer for nothing. He’s smart–smart enough to take a security robot and reprogram it to make it his personal companion. This robot, which he names “Wrench Jr.,” resembles the real-world Knightscope K5 security robot, as well as China’s new AnBot riot control robot.

An actual replica of Watch Dogs 2’s Wrench Jr. was included with the Collector’s Editions.

Wrench Cosplay

Like any popular character, Wrench has fans who want to cosplay him. If you need help with Watch Dogs 2 Wrench cosplay, Ubisoft has provided a cosplay guide.

The cosplay guide, which can be either viewed online or downloaded, includes shots of Wrench from the front, back, and sides. It then breaks down his character design into everything you’d need to know for an accurate costume: close-up shots of his clothing, the colors used for each part of his outfit, and detailed drawings of his tattoos.

It also has close shots of Wrench Jr., in case you want to make your own little robot to accompany you during your cosplay. Finally, it shows every one of the emotes displayed by Wrench’s mask in Watch Dogs 2.

The mask might look like the trickiest part of the cosplay, but unless you’re planning to use an LED display like Wrench himself does, it is probably best to make the individual emotes for the mask’s goggles and swap them out depending on which emotion you want to display.

On the other hand, if you really want an authentic Watch Dogs 2 mask like Wrench’s, one ambitious and technology-savvy cosplayer has provided a guide to creating a mask that can actually display Wrench’s emotes through the use of LED lights and a remote control you can carry with you while in costume.

What Cheats Do You Want in Red Dead Redemption 2

November 9, 2016 by Samantha Lienhard - Leave a comment

red-dead-redemption-2

Rockstar Games has announced Red Dead Redemption 2, the sequel to 2010’s Red Dead Redemption and the third game in the Red Dead series. It will be released for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One sometime in Fall 2017. If you haven’t already watched the announcement trailer, have a look.

Although actual cheat codes aren’t as common in games nowadays, Rockstar is one of the remaining developers who still likes to add fun cheats into their games. What sorts of cheats might we find in Red Dead Redemption 2?

The original Red Dead Redemption had a decent selection of cheat codes. You could do basic things like unlock weapons, spawn horses, alter your Fame level, etc., as well as cause more interesting effects, such as make animals friendly toward you with the Beastmaster code.

Jump forward a few years to Grand Theft Auto V, and you’ll see that Rockstar implemented an even wider variety of cheats: invincibility, flaming bullets, weather control, lower gravity, and more. While many players loved Red Dead Redemption’s cheats, several feel they weren’t nearly as interesting or varied as those found in the Grand Theft Auto series.

It’s safe to say we’ll see cheats return in Red Dead Redemption 2, but what will they be like? What types of cheats would you most like to see in Red Dead Redemption 2? Let us know in the comments.

How to Unlock the Secret Ending of Dragon Ball: Xenoverse 2

November 2, 2016 by Samantha Lienhard - Leave a comment

Dragon Ball: Xenoverse 2 came out at the end of October for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. However, even if you’ve already cleared the main story, you’re not finished yet. You still have a secret mission to unlock, along with the game’s true ending.

To unlock the true ending of Xenoverse 2, you must complete quests in the Time Rifts in order to get all five Distorted Time Eggs.

1. Hercule’s House Egg

Visit Hercule’s House and turn right to enter the courtyard. You must complete the 6 Saiyaman Quests to get this egg. If they aren’t in the courtyard, you must talk to them at the Resort District or Kame House first.

2. Capsule Corporation Egg

Go to the Capsule Corporation and talk to Vegeta. If he doesn’t challenge you to a battle, you need to level up first. You must win all four fights with Vegeta to get this egg.

3. Guru’s House Egg

After you’ve accepted a quest at Guru’s House, you’ll occasionally receive notifications that the area is under attack. During attacks, Nail will give you a quest to defend the house. In these quests, you’ll need to defend the house from enemies while also collecting Dragon Balls. You must complete ten of these quests to get the egg.

4. Majin Buu’s House Egg

At Majin Buu’s house, you need to feed Majin Buu. You can find food in blue orbs at Conton City. Once you feed him enough for him to have six children, he’ll give you the egg.

5. Frieza’s Spaceship Egg

Join Frieza at his spaceships and do quests there until Frieza offers you quests himself. You may need to spend some time in the game doing other things before new quests become available. The game will notify you when a new mission is available. You need to complete all 17 of Frieza’s quests to get the egg.

Unlocking the Secret Mission

Once you have all five Distorted Time Eggs, give them to the Supreme Kai and then talk to Trunks. This will unlock the secret mission, “Unknown History.” Complete this mission to unlock the true final boss fight and the secret ending.

Details Revealed for Nier: Automata’s Combat System

October 25, 2016 by Samantha Lienhard - Leave a comment

nier-automata-combat-famitsu

Famitsu recently revealed details about the combat system for Nier: Automata, the upcoming action RPG from PlatinumGames and Square Enix for the PlayStation 4 and PC.

The protagonist is an android named YoRHa No. 2 Model B, or 2B. She can wield a balanced one-handed sword, a heavy two-handed sword, and faster, short-range melee weapons. Her Pod support system also allows her to shoot enemies from a distance.

In combat, you’ll use the Square button for a fast attack and the Triangle button for a heavy attack. You can have two weapon sets (such as one set using a melee weapon and one-handed sword, and another set using the one-handed sword and two-handed sword), and you can swap between at any time using the d-pad. For ranged attacks, you’ll use R1 to fire your Pod’s guns and L2 to lock on to enemies.

Finally, R2 will be used to let you dodge and evade attacks. If you dodge at the exact moment an attack would have struck, you’ll become temporarily invincible and be able to use special attacks. This should sound familiar to anyone who has played Platinum’s Bayonetta games, although unlike Bayonetta’s Witch Time, it doesn’t affect the flow of time.

Like Platinum’s previous games, Nier: Automata should be filled with challenge for players who love action games. However, for those who are unable to play the action sequences, there is a special Auto Mode that lets 2B automatically attack and evade as long as you keep moving. Auto Mode can only be enabled if you’re already playing on easy. While this may seem like an odd decision, Bayonetta included a similar feature.

Nier: Automata is due out in Japan on February 23, 2017, with a worldwide release later that year. Although it is a sequel to Square Enix’s 2010 action RPG Nier (which is itself a Drakengard spin-off), director Yoko Taro has said players will be able to enjoy Automata even if they didn’t play the original Nier.

Titanfall Sequel Confirmed for Xbox One, PS4, and PC

March 12, 2015 by Samantha Lienhard - Leave a comment

titanfall

Just under a year ago, rumors claimed a Titanfall 2 was planned and that it wouldn’t be Microsoft-exclusive as the original had been. Now, those rumors have finally been proven true. Respawn’s CEO, Vince Zampella, has told IGN that 2014’s multiplayer shooter is getting a sequel, although it doesn’t have a set title yet.

The original Titanfall’s exclusivity was a business decision, and one which won’t be true of the sequel. The next Titanfall game will be made for the Xbox One, PS4, and PC.

According to Zampella, the game will include more lore, although whether or not it will remain multiplayer-only remains undecided. Respawn may take a different approach to DLC, as map packs “split the community and it makes it harder for matchmaking.”

That, along with the multiple platforms, is already making the second Titanfall game appeal to more players. However, many fans are still hoping for a genuine single-player mode. What would you like to see in Titanfall 2?

Games with Gold Titles Announced for March

February 26, 2015 by Cheats.co Staff - Leave a comment

GwG Logo_Home Page_Large Tile

February is almost over, and Microsoft has announced the next month’s titles for Games with Gold.

All month long, Xbox One owners who are members of Xbox Live Gold will be able to pick up Rayman Legends for free. This colorful platformer is one of the best rated Xbox One games, praised for its gameplay, local co-op mode, level design, and more.

Remember, unlike with the Xbox 360 version of the program, you’ll only be able to play this game for as long as you maintain your Xbox Live Gold subscription.

Games with Gold will be even better once March ends. In April, two Xbox One games will be included instead of just one. It sounds as though this increase in free games may be special for April, but we can always hope it’s a lasting change.

Join us in the comments below with your thoughts on Games with Gold and if you’re planning to download Rayman Legends.
