The Epic Games Store is offering another free game through its store. This time it's The Messenger, the retro throwback that takes inspiration from the early Ninja Gaiden games as well as exploration games like Metroid. It will be available through November 21.

The Messenger is notable for its humorous writing and a time-travel mechanic that plays into the exploration challenges. You're accompanied by a demon companion who cracks wise and revives you after death. The Messenger usually costs $20, but if you add it to your Epic Games library during the free window it will be yours forever. Developer Sabotage Studio also has released the game's first free DLC, Picnic Panic, which will be included with the copy.

"The Messenger takes the best parts of the action-platformers it takes influence from and reinterprets them well," Alexander Pan said in GameSpot's review. "With clever writing, well-designed levels, and balanced difficulty curve, the game continuously hooks you with enticing skill-based challenges and satisfying payoffs. Your character might have an immediate imperative to delivering a world-saving scroll, but the journey there is definitely one to savor."

The next free game on the Epic Games Store will be Bad North. For more ways to save money on your gaming habit, check out our Black Friday coverage below.

Pokemon Sword And Shield: Where To Catch Cool And Rare Pokemon

Pokemon Sword And Shield: Where To Catch Cool And Rare Pokemon

Pokemon Sword and Shield have finally arrived on Switch. While the games may not include every Pokemon in the series, they do feature a good mix of old favorites and new Gen 8 monsters, so you still have plenty of options to choose from when assembling your Pokemon team.

Where To Catch Certain Pokemon

Most monsters in Sword and Shield can be found roaming about the Wild Area, a sprawling open-world expanse that stretches across the Galar region. The Wild Area isn't the only place you can encounter Pokemon, but it is home to the largest variety of them (some of which will actually be too strong for you to catch at first), making it the best place to look for new monsters.

As you explore the Wild Area, the weather will change dynamically, which will influence what Pokemon appear in the wild. You also need to keep in mind that you can only catch Pokemon of a certain level depending on how many badges you've collected, so you can't capture every wild Pokemon you encounter.

Fortunately, this isn't as restrictive as it sounds; you'll still encounter plenty of monsters, including a bunch of old favorites very early on in your journey. Many can be found in various portions of the Wild Area, but your first chance to catch some will actually be in certain routes and other places. If you're just getting started, here are some Pokemon you'll likely want to add to your collection and where you can find them:

PokemonHabitat
EeveeRoute 4 (Outside Turffield)
PikachuRoute 4 (Outside Turffield)
MilceryRoute 4 (Outside Turffield)
SizzlipedeRoute 3
GastlyWatchtower Ruins (Wild Area)
ImpidimpGlimwood Tangle
Galarian PonytaGlimwood Tangle (Shield only)
Galarian Farfetch'dBridge Field (Wild Area) (Sword only)

Rare And Fully Evolved Pokemon

As you progress through the adventure, you'll also encounter rare and even fully evolved Pokemon in the wild. You're guaranteed to run into some in certain parts of the Wild Area, but there may be only one of them at a time, so if you miss your chance to catch it, you'll need to wait a while for it to spawn again--something to keep in mind before you challenge any fully evolved Pokemon you spot.

Fortunately, you can save right before you battle the monster and restart if you inadvertently knock it out (although to ensure a clean reset, you should disable autosaving in the options menu). These Pokemon's habitats also won't be listed in the Pokedex, so we've rounded up some rare Pokemon we've encountered and where they can be found:
