Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII Reunion is an updated version of the PSP classic - showcasing the story of Zack Fair and a prequel to Final Fantasy VII. Jessica Howard goes over what was updated for this remake of a classic game.
#gaming #gamename #gamespot

Much like protagonist Zack Fair himself, the story of the self-proclaimed country-boy-turned-SOLDIER-First-Class is not one shrouded in mystery. If you've engaged with Final Fantasy VII or any of its various spin-offs, prequels, remakes, or animated movies, chances are you understand the weight of his legacy--which is, coincidentally, only rivaled by the weight of his sword. However, if you're looking for the definitive way to experience it, look no further than Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII Reunion.

A remake of the 2007 PSP exclusive Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII, Crisis Core Reunion is a faithful retelling of Zack Fair's story with dramatic visual upgrades, full voice acting, and several quality-of-life changes. Considering the game was already heralded as a fantastic prequel and one of the best titles on PSP, it comes as little surprise that this version is triumphant in making Crisis Core into a modern day must-play for Final Fantasy VII fans. Not only does Crisis Core Reunion port the once fairly difficult-to-find game to several new consoles, allowing for a greater audience to experience the title, it transforms the game from feeling like a smaller, handheld experience into something that can proudly stand beside Final Fantasy VII Remake as a worthy companion.

Overwatch's Halloween event has many challenges that you can complete to unlock charms, voice lines, and extra XP to get your battle pass. There are only 14 days to complete the entire event and some challenges are more difficult than others. This is especially true if you consider other teammates who might not be on the same page with you. Twinfinite will show you how to complete Overwatch's Ominous Portent challenge.

How to "Witness All 7 Banchee Moments In One Run" in Overwatch 2.

Many of the challenges are simple and can be solved by you. Ominous Portant, however, is a different challenge. It requires that your entire team work together to complete the task. Overwatch 2 is known for its unreliability, particularly when playing with strangers.

After you have passed the section in the tavern towards the end of the event, you can continue to the gate key search. Do not pick up the key. Make sure to explain to your team that they must also avoid the gate key if you want to complete the challenge. It is impossible to complete the challenge if you grab the key too soon. You will need to wait until the next run.

This section features Banshee Moira appearing semi-randomly while walking. There are also tiny wisps you can touch to trigger events. To complete the challenge, you or your team must trigger seven events. You can spread the credit by completing more than one event.

Once you have received the message that the challenge is over, you can pick up your key and move on to the next section. This challenge is dependent on your team not rushing for the key. Before we reached this section, we communicated our goals in chat. This was the best way to have success. Communication is key to Overwatch 2, as with all parts of Overwatch 2.

Kiriko's voice line "Tarot Reading", is your reward for all this. This is all you need to do in Overwatch 2 to complete the ominous portent challenge. We hope you have a great Halloween, and that you enjoy the new event.

Whitney Meers >Published at 05:20 ET, October 27, 2022 >Destiny 2Looking to find the best Destiny 2 King's Fall weapon for your raid? The Oryx and his comrades are back in Destiny 2, just as Savathun had warned us. You and your fireteam will need to have weapons that can really pack a punch if you want to fight King's Fall raid to confront The Taken King.

Although you might already own your favorite Destiny 2 exotics you should know that not all your FPS weapons will be suitable for the King's Fall challenge. We've created the best weapons to tackle any encounter in this new version of the classic Destiny raid.



Overview of Destiny 2 King's Fall raid loadout: Meta weapons

You should keep two things in mind when preparing your raid loadout: high-DPS weapons and ad-clearing weapon that will be used to defeat bosses. You'll need at least one of the linear fusion rifles in your arsenal to deal serious boss damage. Also, ensure that you have weapons that are capable of taking on many high-powered Champions or ads. Machine guns are an option.

These are solid options that can be used in raid encounters.

rbalest - Exotic linear fusion rifle

The Arbalest (random Exotic Weapon Drop) is a solid weapon for PvE. It allows players to do significant boss damage at mid-range range with very few hits. You can also use it to trigger Golgoroth’s Gaze with one shot.

Taipan-4FR – Legendary linear fusion rifle

While there is some debate over whether Taipan-4FR (Foundry Shaping quest rewards) is better than Reed's Regret and Cataclysmic which can trigger Font of Might elemental pools more quickly than Taipan. Taipan is still the preferred weapon, as it is easier to obtain.



Thunderlord - Exotic Machine Gun

Although some Destiny 2 players are still skeptical about the Thunderlord's (Lost Cryptarch quest rewards) viability it is a powerful machine gun that can do serious damage to challenging enemies and allow the player spam kill ads.

Divinity - Exotic trace gun

Divinity (Garden of Salvation raid reward), should be carried by one member of your team during every encounter. Divinity can increase the weapon power of your teammates, thereby increasing your team's overall output.

Loadouts of Destiny 2 King's Fall Raid Weapons by Encounter

Players will need to change their loadouts for each encounter because each encounter has different objectives. The role of a raid team member will impact how weapons are loaded. These are the recommended weapons for every enemy encounter in the raid.

The Totems



You will be able to kill a lot with a legendary pulse rifle like Insidious (Vow Of The Disciple reward), Horror's Least reward on rotation, or Insidious. An unstoppable mod is required for any weapon that you use to defeat powerful enemies. A legendary shotgun designed for close-range encounters. We recommend Heritage (Deep Stone Crypt rewards) or Found Verdict(Vault of Glass raid rewards). Thunderlord is a powerful legendary shotgun that can be used for close-range encounters.

Warpriest

Staccato-46 (world drop) is a strong option for a legendary pulse rifle.Arbalest due to its ability to generate high damage in a single shot.Taipan-4FR, for similar reasons as Arbalest.Alternatively, some players may prefer sniper rifles over linear fusion rifles. Whisper of the Worm, which can be purchased from Monument to Lost Lights, is a good choice if you have an exotic slot. It is one of the most damage-dealing sniper guns in the game. Izanagi's Burn (also available from Monument to Lost Lights), is another solid option for sniper.

Golgoroth

The weapons that worked well in the Warpriest encounter should also work against Gorgoroth. If you're one of the players who are assigned to draw Golgoroth’s Gaze, Arbalest will do the trick.

For the daughters

This encounter is a good match for the shotgun and pulse rifle you used in previous raid encounters. Rocket launchers are also a great option. There are many options for rocket launchers of top quality, but Gjallarhorn is the best option. Hothead is the reward for Nightfall.



Oryx

Arbalest and Taipan-4FR are solid options to defeat the King's Fall final raid boss.

Bonus: Rat King – Exotic sidearm

The Rat King, which can be purchased from Monument to To Lost Lights, is relatively weak on its own. It doesn't feel strong out of the gate. It must be equipped by other members of your fireteam in order to make it effective. It stacks up to six-times and increases its damage power when it is used with other Rat Kings. To make a King's Fall memorable, you can use your Rat King with your squadmates to cause massive damage to bosses.

Reloading after a kill grants you invisibility. This makes it an appealing prospect for Hunters looking for an invincible build.

These are the best weapons for clearing King's Fall. You can read our guides to the best Destiny 2 Warlock and Destiny 2 Titan build designs to help you plan your loadout. Don't forget about future Destiny 2 content, such as the Season of Plunder and Lightfall updates.

Forest Whitaker portrays Saw Gerrera as the half-crazed rebel leader guerilla. Whitaker played the rebel leader in Rogue One's first episode and has now reprised the role in an appearance opposite Stellan Skrsgard's Luthan.

Luthan visits Gerrera's rebel camp on Segra Milo to provide tech support and for Gerrera, in return, Gerrera will meet another rebel named Anto Kreegyr to help in an operation Kreegyr has started. After some great verbal sparring Gerrera declines Luthan’s offer.

Saw Gerrera, a resistance fighter from Onderonian planet who fought against Confederacy of Independent Systems during Clone Wars and was a leader of Onderon rebels, first appeared in The Clone Wars.

After witnessing the genocide of Geonosians by the Empire, a species of insect-like creatures that was part of the Confederacy of Independent Systems alongside Gerrera, his path led him to the emerging rebel group known as the Partisans.

Mon Mothma was one of those who viewed Gerrera, along with Mon Mothma as a terrorist because of his violent and aggressive tactics that included the killing of prisoners. Mon Mothma, a conservative Mon Mothma, went so far to call Gerrera a war criminal because of his actions.

There are still four episodes left in Season 1. Who knows who might be next. But hopefully this clarifies whether Saw Gerrera is actually in Andor. You can also check out other Star Wars content like who Andy Serkis is in Star Wars, what Andor's budget was, and a list listing all planets in Andor.

GRAVITY CO., Ltd. has announced that its fantasy MMORPG Ragnarok Origin is celebrating a year of service. This anniversary celebration will include plenty of events for players to take part in as well as a new map and even two brand-new classes!

Let’s go over the new classes first, as they’re likely the highlight of the event. The Sage and The Scholar jobs are both magic oriented but in interesting and different ways. The Sage is a magical adept, and their unique skills can force enemies to stop casting abilities. They can even leech magic and convert it into their own! Think of them as a counter-based magical class.

The Scholar, on the other hand, is somewhat like your traditional mage and acts as an evolved version of Sages. They can utilize just about every magical ability under the sun and are a multi-talented class useful for any situation.





yt



As for the events on offer here, there is one outside-of-game event players can take part in where they can cover the theme song for Ragnarok Origin, The One, and upload it to the official contest page. 100 winners will be selected, and they will receive real-world Ragnarok Origin swag for their efforts.

Then, we’ve got the Fortune Teller event, which you can perform in-game or on the official website. This one will allow you to have your fortune told by an NPC, which will then allow you to receive a card that will reveal your soulmate, as well as a mystery present for use in-game.

And finally, we’ve got the new map. The magical floating cloud city of Juno will be completely open for you to explore and discover secrets within!

If you’d like to join the celebrations, you can download Ragnarok Origin for free at either of the links below!

How to hurdle in Fortnite - a Fortnite looper with pink hair hurdles over a wooden build

>FortniteYou’ll need to know how to hurdle over objects in Fortnite in order to complete the new Chapter 4 Explorer quests. This new Fortnite mechanic means you don’t have to get stuck behind rocks or crates any more, and makes it a whole lot easier to get around the Fractured map – especially when combined with the existing mantle mechanic.

Fortnite’s regular events and seasons still keep players coming back, helping keep it among the best battle royale games. Most recently, it relaunched with a surprise new Chapter on December 4, following the huge Fractured event. Chapter 4 Season 1 features new collabs, including the likes of The Witcher’s Geralt and Deku from My Hero Academia, as seen in the cinematic trailer, as well as some game-changing new mechanics. One of those is hurdling objects, so you no longer have to be slowed down by obstacles.

How to hurdle in Fortnite

Hurdling in Fortnite is actually incredibly easy, and is even simpler than mantling. To hurdle over an object in Fortnite, just sprint towards it, and the hurdle action will happen automatically. Run up to it at normal speed, however, and you’ll find yourself hitting your head against a rock. At least you don’t need to press a button to action the hurdle though, unlike mantling.

Speaking of mantling, don’t get the two confused – mantling onto objects or buildings won’t count towards your hurdle quest. The difference is in the size of the object: hurdle over smaller objects, mantle onto larger vehicles or buildings.

So that’s how to mantle in Fortnite, one of the best free PC games available right now. Now, go forth sprinting and hurdling your way round the map like an Olympian, and surely you won’t stay in anyone’s crosshairs long enough to take a hit. If you find yourself running out of sprint energy too quickly then there’s a potion for that, so try the new Fortnite Slap Juice. Check out how to earn Fortnite augments as well, and which is the best one to choose for another burst of energy.

Nvidia RTX 4070 Ti: GeForce graphics card with Nvidia green platform backdrop





Phil Hayton

>Published: Dec 5, 2022 10:58 ET

>Gaming hardwareNvidiaThe Nvidia GeForce RTX 4070 Ti could arrive sooner than you’d think, as a new leak hints at a January release date. The early listing also implies that’ll have 16GB VRAM, rather than packing 12GB like its cancelled RTX 4080 counterpart.

Nothing is set in stone when it comes to the best graphics card race, as the RTX 4070 Ti is rumoured to be the RTX 4080 12GB model under a different guise. If the mid-range GPU does spring from the “unlaunched” Lovelace contender’s ashes, it’ll provide PC players with access to DLSS 3, Frame Generation, and other next-gen Lovelace tricks at a lower price point.

According to a now-deleted listing by Italian retailer Drako.it, the RTX 4070 Ti is set to arrive on January 5, 2023 (via Wccftech). The preemptive page includes a count-down timer to drum up hype, accompanied by mismatched specs that claim it’ll wield 16GB VRAM. Before you get your hopes up, that latter point appears to be a typo, as the listing specifically includes “12GB” in its heading.

That said, Nvidia is reportedly abandoning its original vision for the GeForce RTX 4070, as it seemingly won’t use an AD104-275 GPU. While we’d always advise taking any rumour mill murmurs with a grain of salt, there’s a chance we’ll see a bunch of different graphics card specs arrive compared to what was originally planned.

At the moment, the next-generation graphics card scene only caters to premium builds and enthusiast needs. Sure, the Radeon RX 7900 XT will offer up premium specs for less than an RTX 4080, but neither camp will help you build the best cheap gaming PC using a shiny new GPU. Worse still, Nvidia insists that its last-gen RTX 3000 lineup is still part of its current family, a gesture that may prevent the words ‘Lovelace’ and ‘budget’ from residing in the same sentence.

AMD Ryzen CPU with Radeon city backdrop

>AMDGaming hardwareAMD Ryzen 7000 prices got an expected Black Friday cut, but the red team’s gaming CPU range is still available for below MSRP. While the seasonal sale often lasts beyond its original date, there’s reason to believe the red team will stick with the reductions for now.

AMD’s latest chip might be its best gaming CPU contender, but production has reportedly slowed down due to a lack of interest. In addition, the lineup received a 30% just before Black Friday, despite only emerging on the scene two months prior.

Black Friday 2022 is fading away, but Ryzen 7000 CPUs apparently didn’t get the memo. Videocardz reports that various retailers are still flogging chips at a reduced cost, including the official AMD store, Best Buy and Newegg. Discounts reach as high as $125 USD, with the Ryzen 9 7950X selling for 17.8% less than MSRP.

Again, some Black Friday deals live on a week or two after the event, but some retailers have removed any mention of the original deal. In other words, the lower price tags are potentially here to stay, rather than a limited-time offer.

At this point, it looks like a permanent cut could be on the cards, as faster AMD 7000X3D processors are set to arrive in early 2023. Non-X Zen 4 variants will also enter the fold next month, and their arrival may usher in a return to post-Black Friday pricing. That said, the red team faces stiff competition from Intel and its army of Raptor Lake chips, so low pricing may prove to be an invaluable weapon.

Fortnite augments - Chun-Li is sitting on a boar, holding an augment in her hand.

>FortniteChances are that you have already seen mention of Fortnite augments in the quest list. This major new mechanic has arrived alongside Fortnite Chapter 4, in which the island is now a mishmash of different chunks of islands from other dimensions. It aims to give you the edge by letting you choose from multiple perks that last throughout the match.

One of the most popular battle royale games available, you learn a bit about Fortnite augments via the preliminary challenges you must complete before more Chapter 4 quests unlock. However, it doesn’t go all that far into saying how they work or what you need to do to get the hidden augments to add to your collection.

These perk upgrades give you access to bonuses that affect some of the new Fortnite weapons but can also reveal upcoming storm locations and give you unique buffs. You can hold up to four in total during a match, and if you don’t like the choices on offer, you can reroll once per match for free or pay 100 gold for each subsequent roll.

How to activate augments

You may have noticed that you don’t have access to all of the Fortnite augments from the get-go. To get the rest, you need to play matches and choose perks until you find one with a yellow exclamation mark next to it with the word “new”. You must pick this perk if you want to unlock it.



Fortnite augments - the unlockable augments screen in the main menu. All but one of the combat augments is unlocked and Demolitions Munitions is being shown.

Fortnite augment list

Here are all of the Fortnite augments available from the beginning of Chapter 4 Season 1:

Bloodhound – enemies hit by marksman rifle or bow shots are marked for a brief duration.Bow Specialist – bows draw and reload faster, and you regenerate arrows over time.Bush Warrior – regen health and partial shields while inside large foliage.Demolitions Munitions – objects you destroy have a chance to drop explosives. Excludes player-built structures.First Assault – first bullet in the magazine of AR does bonus damage.Light Fingers – weapons using light ammo reload faster.Mechanical Archer – receive an Explosive and Shockwave Bow.More Parkour – your energy regenerates briefly after mantling or hurdling.Pistol Amp – pistols have greatly increased magazine size.Rifle Recycle – weapons using medium ammo have a chance not to consume ammo.Splash Medic – you have a chance to find a Chug Splash in every container you open.Supercharged – vehicles you’re inside don’t consume fuel and have increased health.

These are all of the unlockable Fortnite augments which you can find over time:

Aerialist – you get Glider redeploys for the rest of the match.Chug Gunner – receive a Chug Cannon.Forecast – you can always see the next storm circle.Jelly Angler – receive a fishing rod. You can use it to fish anywhere, but you can only fish up jellyfish.Party Time – gain balloons over time.Soaring Sprints – while sprinting, you can jump much higher. This is the same as jumping with zero gravity in previous seasons.Storm Mark – when the storm changes, ping the area to highlight nearby enemies for a short time.Tactical Armory – grants a rare Tactical AR and Combat Shotgun.Tricked Out – entering a car or truck applies Chonkers and a Cow Catcher to it.

Those are all of the Fortnite augments. If you want our picks for the best augments, it largely depends on how the game goes. Bloodhound is highly effective when shooting at enemies from far away, while First Assault and Rifle Recycle work well together at medium range. Splash Medic is also especially beneficial as it keeps you well-stocked on healing items that don’t take long to use, which are invaluable in the late-game.

In the meantime, there are a lot of changes to the Fortnite map, so check out the new locations for Fortnite vending machines and mending machines, where all of the Fortnite NPC locations are, and how to find Fortnite bounty boards in Chapter 4.

Fortnite augments - the unlockable augments screen in the main menu. All but one of the combat augments is unlocked and Demolitions Munitions is being shown.

Fortnite augment list

Here are all of the Fortnite augments available from the beginning of Chapter 4 Season 1:

Bloodhound – enemies hit by marksman rifle or bow shots are marked for a brief duration.Bow Specialist – bows draw and reload faster, and you regenerate arrows over time.Bush Warrior – regen health and partial shields while inside large foliage.Demolitions Munitions – objects you destroy have a chance to drop explosives. Excludes player-built structures.First Assault – first bullet in the magazine of AR does bonus damage.Light Fingers – weapons using light ammo reload faster.Mechanical Archer – receive an Explosive and Shockwave Bow.More Parkour – your energy regenerates briefly after mantling or hurdling.Pistol Amp – pistols have greatly increased magazine size.Rifle Recycle – weapons using medium ammo have a chance not to consume ammo.Splash Medic – you have a chance to find a Chug Splash in every container you open.Supercharged – vehicles you’re inside don’t consume fuel and have increased health.

These are all of the unlockable Fortnite augments which you can find over time:

Aerialist – you get Glider redeploys for the rest of the match.Chug Gunner – receive a Chug Cannon.Forecast – you can always see the next storm circle.Jelly Angler – receive a fishing rod. You can use it to fish anywhere, but you can only fish up jellyfish.Party Time – gain balloons over time.Soaring Sprints – while sprinting, you can jump much higher. This is the same as jumping with zero gravity in previous seasons.Storm Mark – when the storm changes, ping the area to highlight nearby enemies for a short time.Tactical Armory – grants a rare Tactical AR and Combat Shotgun.Tricked Out – entering a car or truck applies Chonkers and a Cow Catcher to it.

Those are all of the Fortnite augments. If you want our picks for the best augments, it largely depends on how the game goes. Bloodhound is highly effective when shooting at enemies from far away, while First Assault and Rifle Recycle work well together at medium range. Splash Medic is also especially beneficial as it keeps you well-stocked on healing items that don’t take long to use, which are invaluable in the late-game.

In the meantime, there are a lot of changes to the Fortnite map, so check out the new locations for Fortnite vending machines and mending machines, where all of the Fortnite NPC locations are, and how to find Fortnite bounty boards in Chapter 4.

Star Wars Jedi Survivor release date: A menacing entity with sunken eyes and vertical grooves lining his face is lit from the side by eerie blue light

Ian Boudreau

>Updated: Dec 5, 2022 10:58 ET

>Star Wars Jedi: SurvivorAn update to the RPG game’s Steam page appears to have revealed the Star Wars Jedi Survivor release date. The follow-up to Respawn’s rather excellent Soulslike Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order comes out March 16, 2023. The update has since been removed.

It’s likely Respawn planned to reveal the release date with a trailer or announcement at this week’s Game Awards presentation, but as sometimes happens, an update prepared to coincide with the reveal has now been published ahead of time.

The Steam page for Jedi Survivor has been up since July. In addition to the release date, the update included the PC system requirements, which call for a minimum of an Intel Core i7-770 or an AMD Ryzen 5 1400 and a graphics card with 8GB of VRAM – Respawn is (currently) recommending at least an GTX 1070 or Radeon RX 580. You’ll also need a whopping 130GB of storage space for this game.

The update also reveals pre-order bonuses for the Star Wars Jedi: Survivor Deluxe Edition, which include Han Solo- and Luke Skywalker-inspired looks for Cal, an R2-D2 colour scheme for BD-1, and Han’s classic DL-44 blaster set.

The Jedi Survivor Steam page says it will include new Force abilities and new lightsaber fighting styles, as well as “an expanded host of enemies” and new planets – including some “familiar frontiers in the Star Wars galaxy.” Jedi Survivor will also feature larger explorable maps that have “more to discover off the beaten path.”

Director Stig Asmussen has said that Jedi Survivor will feel “more filmic” than its predecessor thanks to next-gen tech like ray-tracing – we can’t wait to watch that lightsaber glow bouncing beautifully off of all the shiny space walls.

The early hours of Marvel's Midnight Suns have sold us on the combat, but not quite on the story, despite some standout characters.
#gaming #Marvle #MidnightSuns

So far, I really enjoy Marvel's Midnight Suns, having now played about 15 hours of the tactical RPG, which pulls inspiration from the XCOM games. Removing XCOM's frustrating percentage system--which could cause even the most well-planned strategies to have a chance of just not working--makes the turn-based tactical combat in Midnight Suns a lot more fun. And thanks to the deckbuilding card system, randomness still factors into the equation, creating a healthy bit of challenge.

You can expect more words from me regarding the actual gameplay of Midnight Suns when the full review embargo is up. For now, I want to briefly touch on an aspect of Midnight Suns we haven't really had a chance to see a whole lot of yet: the writing and story.

To recap, in Midnight Suns you play as the Hunter, prophesied to defeat your mother, Lilith, and seal away her dark magic forever. You're assigned leadership of the latest iteration of the Midnight Suns, a team composed of superheroes with powers that dabble in the mystic and supernatural, going out to face Lilith's demonic forces and the members of HYDRA she's enthralled. Lilith's war on humanity attracts the attention of less magically-inclined heroes as well, and so your efforts are also bolstered by members of the Avengers and X-Men. Each character features their own unique abilities, portrayed as cards within a deck, allowing you to switch up your strategies depending on who you bring on a mission.

I wasn't expecting a story quite so action hero-focused given the namesake Midnight Suns is pulling from. It's a bit by-the-numbers, even by the standards of superhero fiction, so major plot points can be seen coming from a mile away and moments of grief or tragedy aren't given adequate room to fester, as the more wise-cracking heroes are quick to fill the silence with jokes to liven up the situation. So far, that's keeping the game's story from being great, but it's certainly not bad by any stretch. If you've watched any of the team-oriented MCU movies, you already kind of know what you're getting with Midnight Suns--this game feels more like the MCU's lighthearted take on Age of Ultron and less like the darker Midnight Suns comic book series.

Between the major plot points, Midnight Suns allows you to explore optional, more personal side stories. And it's in those smaller interactions between the Hunter and the individual members of their team that the game manages to squeeze out some incredible moments. Building up your friendship with certain heroes unlocks additional cutscenes and conversations with them, many of which culminate in heartwarming reveals or devastating discoveries. Magik, in particular, is one of the best-written characters in Midnight Suns, and her friendship arc with the Hunter--which sees the two bond over their respective struggles with their innate darkness--has been my favorite part of the game thus far.

Dwarf Fortress on PC

Dwarf Fortress is an intimidating game. It is a venerable grandfather of an entire genre. Rimworld and many other deep colonist survival sim games owe much of their DNA to this 2002 game. Minecraft holds Dwarf Fortress as an influence. This game was in the Museum of Modern Art for a time as a part of gaming history. It’s also intimidating to play, as its ASCII graphics and hard-to-learn hard-to-master gameplay give even the most hardcore management game enthusiast pause. Now a paid version of the game is releasing on steam with a new updated graphics tileset in an attempt to make the game more accessible.

Like many grandfathers, Dwarf Fortress is stern and serious on the surface. You won’t be learning to master psionic powers or turn your colonists into vampires like with your cool aunt Rimworld. Instead, you will be carefully catering to your dwarves’ evolving needs as your colony increases in size. You’ll be managing storage, logistics, trade, and the demands of your dwarven aristocracy. You’ll have to make sure your fortress is well-fed, supplied with beer, and able to trade with outsiders to fill any potential supply shortfalls. Then you can explore the robust systems of crafting that exist in the game, from paper production so you can make your own libraries to the intricate system for making clothes and other farm products.

There is a steep learning curve that will occasionally require outside guides and wikis to fully get over. So steep a learning curve that I am almost afraid to put up screenshots of my game for fear that someone experienced may point out something I did horribly wrong and I may die of embarrassment.

That isn’t to say that granddad Dwarf Fortress doesn’t have some zany things up his sleeves, but you have to earn them. Most of those zany and wacky things are various terrible ways for all your dwarves to die horribly. It’s best not to dwell on that in this review too much, as part of the fun of Dwarf Fortress is discovering the world organically, but there are a lot of fantastical creatures out there that can take apart your fortress like it’s made from Lego. Perhaps the most common of these, and the least spoilerish, are raiding parties or armies of Goblins.

There are also the more mundane ways for your fortress to fall, like shortages, starvation, or unrest. In the regular day-to-day of your fortress, you are going to see glimpses of these things, like the fin of a shark below water. You may even survive something you think of as impossible, but the idea is that your fortress has a finite shelf life before its doom. Learning from mistakes and failure is a part of Dwarf Fortress.

The ‘point’ of Dwarf Fortress is very much up to you, much more so than even Rimworld. It’s up to you to find your own stories in the life of your fortress and goals for yourself. Goals can be as simple as surviving and expanding your fortress with time. Maybe you want a mighty dwarven realm with a powerful military, or maybe you want to construct the most lavish dwarven fortress possible for your dwarves to live in. Maybe you just feel the overwhelming dwarven urge to dig deep into the earth and make a home there. The Dwarf Fortress wiki has a whole section on things you can do for fun, from construction projects to challenges.

Colony Management games are at their best when you get engrossed in them. Dwarf Fortress masters that in-game flow so well that you feel excited when something goes wrong. It’s not that the day-to-day of your fortress is boring, but when your bubble is pierced and you’re reminded that there’s a whole world out there it makes the whole experience so much more meaningful. You appreciate the day-to-day when something wrong happens, yet yearn for the adventure of something cool happening as you build.

Failure doesn’t feel bad in Dwarf Fortress because it’s part of the story. It also helps that not every disaster is catastrophic. You can sometimes survive something like an unexpected goblin siege. At the same time, when something truly monumentally disastrous happens it feels like you’re in your own personal Ragnarok, the ending of your own mythic saga filled with personalities and legends that will meet a poignant, or at least notable, end. Dwarf Fortress is one of those games that gives itself entirely to the player to make their stories out of, yet doesn’t feel as if it’s forcing you to obsess over each and every dwarf in your fortress.

So if you are sold on the concept of Dwarf Fortress, there are two questions with this new release: Are you going to be able to get into it as a new player, and should you pay for this release if the original is free? These two questions go hand in hand, and I feel well-equipped as someone who never played Dwarf Fortress to answer both questions.

The answer to the former question is a resounding probably. It really depends on your appetite for fairly dry resource management and goods crafting. The graphics do help a Dwarf Fortress layperson get into the game without being completely lost. At a glance, things are much more apparent and visually decipherable. There is a tutorial that will help get you on your feet with your first fortress. None of this will magically make this complex, dry and logistics-heavy game appeal to someone without some experience in the genre. If you’ve played something like Rimworld but found Dwarf Fortress too much, then I would recommend giving it another shot with the paid version. I still had to look up a few things in the Dwarf Fortress wiki despite the in-game tutorial, but that is somewhat inevitable with something as complex as Dwarf Fortress.

Which brings me to the second question, for which I can say also yes. This Steam release is fundamentally worth your money if you couldn’t get into Dwarf Fortress because of its ASCII visuals. Yes, there are free mods that have tilesets that make the game less visually intimidating, but fundamentally they require more fiddling around and research than the Steam version. With the Steam version, you get a tileset with the game, a tutorial, and the steam workshop for mods, all of which make Dwarf Fortress a much more accessible experience.

That tileset is also fundamentally pretty great. It’s reminiscent of the visuals for other retro way-too-in-depth games like Space Station 13. It helps the narrative you want to tell if you can see and visually distinguish your dwarves and helps you have a medium-term goal of making your fortress look nice. The ambient sounds and the soundtrack are also excellent.

There are a few issues with Dwarf Fortress in this release. There are some times when you have to click more than your liking to get something done, most of it has to do with stockpiles and zones which can be a bit of a pain to manage. You also have to click on workshops to make items like beds or weapons, so if your workshops are spread across multiple levels it can be a hassle to cycle through them. The game is also quite long, with not a lot happening for long stretches of time.

These flaws and many other minor nitpicks are baked into the experience, so don’t expect patches to fix all the awkwardness from the game’s UI and controls, but at the same time, they are things you get used to with time. In fact, you should probably plan your fortress’ organization around convenience for yourself. Some of the elements of inconvenience become in-game opportunities. For example, there is a member of the nobility of your fortress whose job it is to keep a count of how many items you have. Without them, you have a rough estimate at best.

Dwarf Fortress is a hobby more than a game at its highest levels. It’s something that has enough depth and complexity to devote a small part of your life if you want. Its community is devoted and their command over the mechanics of Dwarf Fortress allows them to do incredible things with this game. That being said, it may not be for everyone. The Steam Release lets you see whether or not this game is worth your time enough to get invested in truly understanding this game.

If you’ve never played Dwarf Fortress, then this is a great $30 game with the potential for future updates and a wide array of mods. The community for mod-making is already there, so you’re buying into a game that should be very well supported from the very beginning. If you already like Dwarf Fortress, your mileage may vary.

As for me, I’m not even close to having experienced all that Dwarf Fortress has to offer, and I’m excited to see what I can learn next. After all, failure is the mother of learning, so I must have learned a decent amount from Dwarf Fortress.

Maybe you want a mighty dwarven realm with a powerful military, or maybe you want to construct the most lavish dwarven fortress possible for your dwarves to live in. Maybe you just feel the overwhelming dwarven urge to dig deep into the earth and make a home there. The Dwarf Fortress wiki has a whole section on things you can do for fun, from construction projects to challenges.

Colony Management games are at their best when you get engrossed in them. Dwarf Fortress masters that in-game flow so well that you feel excited when something goes wrong. It’s not that the day-to-day of your fortress is boring, but when your bubble is pierced and you’re reminded that there’s a whole world out there it makes the whole experience so much more meaningful. You appreciate the day-to-day when something wrong happens, yet yearn for the adventure of something cool happening as you build.

Failure doesn’t feel bad in Dwarf Fortress because it’s part of the story. It also helps that not every disaster is catastrophic. You can sometimes survive something like an unexpected goblin siege. At the same time, when something truly monumentally disastrous happens it feels like you’re in your own personal Ragnarok, the ending of your own mythic saga filled with personalities and legends that will meet a poignant, or at least notable, end. Dwarf Fortress is one of those games that gives itself entirely to the player to make their stories out of, yet doesn’t feel as if it’s forcing you to obsess over each and every dwarf in your fortress.

So if you are sold on the concept of Dwarf Fortress, there are two questions with this new release: Are you going to be able to get into it as a new player, and should you pay for this release if the original is free? These two questions go hand in hand, and I feel well-equipped as someone who never played Dwarf Fortress to answer both questions.

The answer to the former question is a resounding probably. It really depends on your appetite for fairly dry resource management and goods crafting. The graphics do help a Dwarf Fortress layperson get into the game without being completely lost. At a glance, things are much more apparent and visually decipherable. There is a tutorial that will help get you on your feet with your first fortress. None of this will magically make this complex, dry and logistics-heavy game appeal to someone without some experience in the genre. If you’ve played something like Rimworld but found Dwarf Fortress too much, then I would recommend giving it another shot with the paid version. I still had to look up a few things in the Dwarf Fortress wiki despite the in-game tutorial, but that is somewhat inevitable with something as complex as Dwarf Fortress.

Which brings me to the second question, for which I can say also yes. This Steam release is fundamentally worth your money if you couldn’t get into Dwarf Fortress because of its ASCII visuals. Yes, there are free mods that have tilesets that make the game less visually intimidating, but fundamentally they require more fiddling around and research than the Steam version. With the Steam version, you get a tileset with the game, a tutorial, and the steam workshop for mods, all of which make Dwarf Fortress a much more accessible experience.

That tileset is also fundamentally pretty great. It’s reminiscent of the visuals for other retro way-too-in-depth games like Space Station 13. It helps the narrative you want to tell if you can see and visually distinguish your dwarves and helps you have a medium-term goal of making your fortress look nice. The ambient sounds and the soundtrack are also excellent.

There are a few issues with Dwarf Fortress in this release. There are some times when you have to click more than your liking to get something done, most of it has to do with stockpiles and zones which can be a bit of a pain to manage. You also have to click on workshops to make items like beds or weapons, so if your workshops are spread across multiple levels it can be a hassle to cycle through them. The game is also quite long, with not a lot happening for long stretches of time.

These flaws and many other minor nitpicks are baked into the experience, so don’t expect patches to fix all the awkwardness from the game’s UI and controls, but at the same time, they are things you get used to with time. In fact, you should probably plan your fortress’ organization around convenience for yourself. Some of the elements of inconvenience become in-game opportunities. For example, there is a member of the nobility of your fortress whose job it is to keep a count of how many items you have. Without them, you have a rough estimate at best.

Dwarf Fortress is a hobby more than a game at its highest levels. It’s something that has enough depth and complexity to devote a small part of your life if you want. Its community is devoted and their command over the mechanics of Dwarf Fortress allows them to do incredible things with this game. That being said, it may not be for everyone. The Steam Release lets you see whether or not this game is worth your time enough to get invested in truly understanding this game.

If you’ve never played Dwarf Fortress, then this is a great $30 game with the potential for future updates and a wide array of mods. The community for mod-making is already there, so you’re buying into a game that should be very well supported from the very beginning. If you already like Dwarf Fortress, your mileage may vary.

As for me, I’m not even close to having experienced all that Dwarf Fortress has to offer, and I’m excited to see what I can learn next. After all, failure is the mother of learning, so I must have learned a decent amount from Dwarf Fortress.

A slower burn through progression means spending more time with your favorite ride

The stakes and the racing action in Need for Speed Unbound may be familiar, but the game is a breath of fresh air for racing fans — and for a 25-year-old series that badly needed it.

What surprises me the most about Need for Speed Unbound, however, is a subtle adjustment to the game’s economy and progression that allows me to do something I’ve always wanted to do with this franchise: spend real time with one car, building it up and blinging it out, without the fear of missing out on the flashier cars that are constantly unlocking (or are available at triflingly cheap costs in an in-world dealership).

Moreover, I feel like I’m actually racing, rather than trying to engineer a cinematic first-place finish in every event just to get to the next one. The basic gameplay loop of Need for Speed Unbound is much the same as 2019’s Need for Speed Heat, whose day-night cycle had players racing in sanctioned events in daylight, but increasing their “rep” — and drawing cop attention — with activities at night. As such, you never lost cash, just rep.

But in Unbound, the climb to the top of a cash pile is going to go much more slowly. Nighttime racing pays off in cash only, all of which you can lose after a race if the police chase and catch you. There’s no “rep” to unlock certain high-value cars and customizations; Unbound runs a straight cash economy, and its best-paying races have buy-ins. This means progression is going to be much steeper (this is especially true if you’re going to spend money on the game’s new customization options). The cash buy-in to the core events represents its own risk-versus-reward question (though you’re usually only losing money if you finish last, or close to it). However, there are usually at least two meetups with a no-cash buy-in, even if the payouts will be smaller.

Image: Criterion Games/Electronic ArtsThe grind inside doing “free” races is apparent, but I actually appreciated their availability because they’re a much safer alternative to picking a fight with the cops in Need for Speed Unbound’s open world of Lakeshore (think Chicago). The cops can be pretty formidable, particularly in numbers and definitely on the surface streets, where breaking the line of sight is nigh impossible no matter how hard you make a squared turn or an emergency brake U-turn.

Fortunately, a minimap gives you a generous notice of the cops’ locations, so you can cut down side streets before they spot you, or back off if you’re trailing them on the freeway. If you’re spotted, the cooldown to a full chase is very short; you have to be blowing past them full-throttle most of the time. Knowing a route back to the freeway, with a lot of nitrous built up from shenanigans getting there, is key to survival against the Man, and in keeping your cash. And when you have a five-figure amount on your dashboard, you get very desperate about keeping it, which inevitably brings in reinforcements and makes the chase even more demanding.

What you do with that cash seems a lot more natural and less driven by the repeating dopamine hit of unlocking as much as you can. Coming back to the garage after a particularly strong haul very early in the game, the first big-ticket option wasn’t my next car — it was a very nice tuner package for the one I was currently driving.

It’s kind of ironic, because I was, in fact, hoping to save my cash to get into a different car and start knocking down more races; the 1988 Lamborghini I selected at the character creation stage was a role-playing choice, really. After half a dozen events, I found myself wanting something more like the 1969 Dodge Charger — muscle and drift — for the point-to-point races out in the suburbs that feature a lot of switchbacks and corner-cutting.

Image: Criterion Games/Electronic ArtsIf you regret your first car choice, though, Need for Speed Unbound’s story path is going to ease that worry quickly. It becomes apparent that a malcontent friend at the garage where you work has their own ideas; they take off with your car, and Unbound’s narrative unfolds along the usual, rote arcs of interpersonal revenge, with a major street-racing event as the story mode’s overall goal.

Even there, a less-is-more approach from Criterion helps Unbound’s pacing, and therefore its long-term enjoyment. In the past, the franchise has emphasized beating everyone, in every event, usually because of a heavy-handed story that tries too hard to imitate an action movie. Past Need for Speeds (especially 2017’s Payback) had me constantly swapping vehicle types to finish first because it so often dictated advancement to the next event. In Need for Speed Unbound, I might be grinding for the buy-in to the next big race, but it’s actually manageable, even without a win.

That’s a good thing, because after having my A+ starter car taken from me, I got mowed down by the AI field. A lot. Unbound’s more flexible post-race results mean I can build a connection to a select few vehicles based on more criteria than “first-place potential.” It’s also worth noting that there is no rewind feature (same as Heat) and only a limited number of restarts per event. So I really did have to ask myself if that fourth-place finish really was worth rectifying (or if the ugly head-on collision with a minivan really did merit a do-over).

All of this is meant to emphasize that there is very enjoyable gameplay under Need for Speed Unbound’s hood, and it isn’t just the “anime Need for Speed” that players may have seen in the game’s meager publicity before launch. It’s true that Unbound’s unorthodox visual style does the most to distinguish the game from past entries, but I was surprised that something I was prepared to resent ended up a solid, supplementary design choice, as opposed to being the point of the whole game.



Close up rearview shot of a racing car highlight the stylish graffiti and lighting effects that are part of Need for Speed Unbound

Image: Criterion Games/Electronic ArtsThe cars and the racing world are all photorealistically presented, but the drivers are anime-style characters. And every stunt they execute arrives with street-art emphasis, whether that’s neon-colored highlights on the rims, go-fast lines popping off the hood, or a pair of graffiti-style wings when you launch off an overpass. There are signature burnout animations, wheel effects, and a post-race victory pose for your driver (I especially appreciated seeing them, in their customized outfits, through the windshield in a close-up at the end of an event). I thought all this stuff would interfere with the visual information that racing games have to present to drive both fast and cool — but it doesn’t.

That’s not to say that the handling is any more intuitive than in past Need for Speed games. There’s still a lot of oversteer, a really heavy turn-in that makes drifting, in most cars, look like a kart racer rather than something slick. Also: Hit the nitrous anywhere other than a straight, and all that steering disappears.

The handling is a lot twitchier than Forza Horizon 4, for example, and with a heavy emphasis on pedal-to-the-metal velocity and nitro boosts, you’re going to be smashing up a lot of property. It’s jarring as hell to see pedestrians diving out of the way, but they always make it, and I admit that seeing people on sidewalks in daytime makes a city like Lakeshore a lot more lifelike.

Image: Criterion Games/Electronic ArtsFor such a venerable name in racing video games (Aaron Paul starred in a 2014 movie about this franchise, remember?), Need for Speed really hit the skids over the past half-decade. Unbound is a relief as much as a delight — it shows there still is a lot of fun to be had in the open-world racer format, if a studio is willing to think about some of the smaller things differently, rather than try to revolutionize the whole shebang.

Heat, a solid game that built up a dedicated audience, probably didn’t get the fairest shake in public opinion after it launched three years ago. Electronic Arts reorganized its action-racing development in response. Unbound arrives with the same lack of glamour, the same diminished cachet, but it is so much more fun, and so much more worth my time racing and running from the law, that the game feels like racing’s comeback player of the year.

Need for Speed Unbound launched on Nov. 29 on PlayStation 5, Windows PC, and Xbox Series X. The game was reviewed on PlayStation 5 using a pre-release download code provided by Electronic Arts.

The delight of Daniel Mullins’ games is the way they obliterate expectations. If there’s a problem with having such a distinctive creative voice, though, is that we've been trained by his previous games to expect the unexpected. And that's why Inscryption's arrival on Switch is such a treat: as the first of Mullins' games to hit the console, many Switch owners won’t have had the chance to play his earlier works. If you’re one of them, you’re in for a treat.

The Switch home screen icon for Inscryption is a 3.5-inch floppy disk. The game loads with a flickery CRT filter over the production logos and then frames the whole work as a dusty old computer game that hasn't been played in a long time. That game is a card game, played against a mysterious Dungeon Master-type figure. However, within minutes, it becomes apparent that your eerie foe isn't talking to you, the player of the computer game, but to an in-game avatar who is playing the card game inside the computer game. So before you’ve even sat comfortably, Inscryption has you playing a game within a game within a game.

Indeed, Inscryption is a simmering horror story that seems hell-bent on preventing you from sitting comfortably at any point. Frequently described as a rogue-like deck-builder, we think that someone turned off by that description might well still love it. Inscryption might disappoint someone hoping for a straight-up genre piece. The deck-building game in Inscryption has a place like the rubber-stamping game in Papers, Please: it's a real game – a good one – but that's not really the point. In fact, the cards are ingenious misdirection for the magic that happens beyond the creatures and stats you’re working with.

That’s not to undermine the fun of the challenge to build a deck and battle through encounters and defeat bosses. The illustrations and mechanics quickly drew us in, and some of the cards were so characterful they seemed to take on a life of their own. However, new mechanics – new exceptions to the basic rules – are introduced so frequently that you will barely have a chance to play the game before it changes. Managing your menagerie of mothmen, squirrels, stoats and more is a highly dynamic, imaginative experience that (at least to begin with) simply isn't given chance to get old. Extra behaviours are added to cards, new events are added to the game board unfurled between rounds, and different items are added to the table on which you're playing.

Without spoiling anything, Inscryption also doesn't even confine itself to the table the game is resting on: game within a game within a game is only the starting point. Players of Daniel Mullins Games' earlier titles Pony Express and The Hex will recognise the themes and artistic ambitions from those games. "Genre mash-up" doesn't begin to describe The Hex, for example, which sees characters jumping between entirely different games, using new genres to experience the world and story in different ways, seeing things that couldn't be seen otherwise. Here in Inscryption, Mullins pushes the idea more subtly but further, exploring meta-narratives on higher and higher planes of existence.

Inscryption represents a maturing of the idea. Rather than solve the puzzle of how to make something transcend itself, Mullins has this time left the question as a dangling, frustratingly loose end. Where The Hex seemed to forever chase its tail in a folly of trying to get outside itself, Inscryption turns that absurdity into torment for the player. The inability of the game to escape the bounds of itself becomes your inability to escape its grip.

However, Inscryption does struggle a little in places. It sometimes moves too fast and reveals its wild setup too soon. Act 1 threw ideas at us at such an unnerving rate that we took Act 2 comparatively in our stride, even despite the continuing reframing of the narrative and the game. Taking us more than a dozen hours to play through, there was eventually a lot of actual card playing to be done for a game that best trades on its refusal to really be that game. The wonderfully imaginative premise does bring with it the risk that a player wanting a deck-builder may be frustrated by the interruptions but, equally, a player who prefers the interruptions may be annoyed by all the deck-building. This means that going in with an open mind is critical.

As long as you’re prepared to dive into Inscryption’s world, it’s inspiring how it plays with different kinds of games – and not just genres of video games. Game design courses often develop concepts using things like card games, board games and escape rooms. By stacking them inside one other, it feels like Mullins is trying to break the textbook. The video game elements range from simply embellishing the presentation, with the hauntingly nefarious character of the Dungeon Master and atmospheric props, to implementing elaborate rule sets that would be cumbersome without a computer, to acknowledging the software and hardware itself in its narrative framing.

Conclusion

It’s hard to talk about the specifics of Inscryption without diluting some of its magic. However, its ingenuity is mind-boggling, its mood is devilishly haunting and its presentation is first-rate. As a deck builder, it’s stretched about as far as it can go, and by jumping around between concepts it sometimes asks for a lot of from the player. The pay-off, however, is one of the most impressive feats of video game storytelling there is. If you’re new to Daniel Mullins Games then you’re in for even more of a treat, but existing fans, too, shouldn’t think they have the measure of what awaits on Inscryption’s dusty old floppy disk.

First-class video game storytellingFantastically eerie atmosphere that never lets upSolid deck-building mechanicsIngenious game-within-a-game conceptThe deck-building eventually gets oldCard game and meta-game sometimes feel at oddsConstant context-shifting might be distracting for some

Indeed, Inscryption is a simmering horror story that seems hell-bent on preventing you from sitting comfortably at any point. Frequently described as a rogue-like deck-builder, we think that someone turned off by that description might well still love it. Inscryption might disappoint someone hoping for a straight-up genre piece. The deck-building game in Inscryption has a place like the rubber-stamping game in Papers, Please: it's a real game – a good one – but that's not really the point. In fact, the cards are ingenious misdirection for the magic that happens beyond the creatures and stats you’re working with.

That’s not to undermine the fun of the challenge to build a deck and battle through encounters and defeat bosses. The illustrations and mechanics quickly drew us in, and some of the cards were so characterful they seemed to take on a life of their own. However, new mechanics – new exceptions to the basic rules – are introduced so frequently that you will barely have a chance to play the game before it changes. Managing your menagerie of mothmen, squirrels, stoats and more is a highly dynamic, imaginative experience that (at least to begin with) simply isn't given chance to get old. Extra behaviours are added to cards, new events are added to the game board unfurled between rounds, and different items are added to the table on which you're playing.

Without spoiling anything, Inscryption also doesn't even confine itself to the table the game is resting on: game within a game within a game is only the starting point. Players of Daniel Mullins Games' earlier titles Pony Express and The Hex will recognise the themes and artistic ambitions from those games. "Genre mash-up" doesn't begin to describe The Hex, for example, which sees characters jumping between entirely different games, using new genres to experience the world and story in different ways, seeing things that couldn't be seen otherwise. Here in Inscryption, Mullins pushes the idea more subtly but further, exploring meta-narratives on higher and higher planes of existence.

Inscryption represents a maturing of the idea. Rather than solve the puzzle of how to make something transcend itself, Mullins has this time left the question as a dangling, frustratingly loose end. Where The Hex seemed to forever chase its tail in a folly of trying to get outside itself, Inscryption turns that absurdity into torment for the player. The inability of the game to escape the bounds of itself becomes your inability to escape its grip.

However, Inscryption does struggle a little in places. It sometimes moves too fast and reveals its wild setup too soon. Act 1 threw ideas at us at such an unnerving rate that we took Act 2 comparatively in our stride, even despite the continuing reframing of the narrative and the game. Taking us more than a dozen hours to play through, there was eventually a lot of actual card playing to be done for a game that best trades on its refusal to really be that game. The wonderfully imaginative premise does bring with it the risk that a player wanting a deck-builder may be frustrated by the interruptions but, equally, a player who prefers the interruptions may be annoyed by all the deck-building. This means that going in with an open mind is critical.

As long as you’re prepared to dive into Inscryption’s world, it’s inspiring how it plays with different kinds of games – and not just genres of video games. Game design courses often develop concepts using things like card games, board games and escape rooms. By stacking them inside one other, it feels like Mullins is trying to break the textbook. The video game elements range from simply embellishing the presentation, with the hauntingly nefarious character of the Dungeon Master and atmospheric props, to implementing elaborate rule sets that would be cumbersome without a computer, to acknowledging the software and hardware itself in its narrative framing.

Conclusion

It’s hard to talk about the specifics of Inscryption without diluting some of its magic. However, its ingenuity is mind-boggling, its mood is devilishly haunting and its presentation is first-rate. As a deck builder, it’s stretched about as far as it can go, and by jumping around between concepts it sometimes asks for a lot of from the player. The pay-off, however, is one of the most impressive feats of video game storytelling there is. If you’re new to Daniel Mullins Games then you’re in for even more of a treat, but existing fans, too, shouldn’t think they have the measure of what awaits on Inscryption’s dusty old floppy disk.

First-class video game storytellingFantastically eerie atmosphere that never lets upSolid deck-building mechanicsIngenious game-within-a-game conceptThe deck-building eventually gets oldCard game and meta-game sometimes feel at oddsConstant context-shifting might be distracting for some

After a year of exclusivity over on Xbox and PC, Sable — a coming of age exploration game — has finally made its way over to PS5. The important question, as always, is has the wait been worth it? And the answer is yes, but only if you’re willing to overlook its technical issues.

On a desert planet called Midden, when a child reaches adulthood, they have to complete a rite of passage called The Gliding. This is a journey of self-discovery where a youngster travels around on their own and gets to meet new people and complete quests in order to discover who they truly are.

After a short introductory quest where the game’s protagonist, Sable, gets to build her own hoverbike and say goodbye to her family, you’re let loose to explore the world. It’s a pretty freeing feeling when you realise that you really can just point your bike in any direction and explore wherever you like.

On your journey you’ll come across many well written and endearing NPCs who have quests for you to take on, but it’s completely up to you if you want to help them out or not. There are simple quests like collecting bugs and metal, but also much more interesting activities such as investigating who stole a town’s power supply or rescuing a child by dressing up as a vigilante. Whatever tasks you decide to adopt, it never feels like a chore; any excuse to go and visit more of Midden’s gorgeous landscapes feels worthwhile.

You’ll be spending a lot of time on your hoverbike so it’s great that Sable makes good use of the DualSense controller. Being able to feel the rumble of your hoverbike’s engine and the slight resistance on the R2 trigger as you accelerate definitely makes for a more immersive experience.

You’ll also want to hop off your bike every now and then to climb to the top of any tall outcrops you come across. Stopping to drink in the beautiful horizons is a great way to spot any interesting looking areas that you may want to visit later. Most surfaces are climbable but a stamina bar limits how long you can hang on for, although with the handy ability to glide you’re never at risk of hurting yourself. The mechanics of getting around are simple, but they fit in well with the world’s relaxing vibes.

Sadly, some of the joy of exploration is dampened by the stuttering framerate which frequently gets a bit choppy, especially when wandering through busier areas. You’re also likely to encounter bugs with things like merchants not having any stock for sale or your hoverbike disappearing. Reloading the game does seem to fix many issues, but these little niggles do begin to get irritating over time. It’s a shame as, apart from these issues, exploring Sable’s strange and mysterious land is an absolute delight.

Air Rod: Located to the left of Agatha’s altar. Head up a small flight of stairs and you’ll see the Air Rod sitting on a podium.Earth Rod: In Wanda’s journal, she writes about the Hunters Tomb, and that’s exactly where you’ll find the Earth Rod. Use the Open Power Word to remove the door from the burial place and pick up the elemental rod.Water Rod: Next to the training area you’ll see the swimming pool. Head to the rocks next to the pool, where you’ll see some glyphs on the floor, and the Water Rod.Fire Rod: The Fire Rod can be found inside the Abbey in the chapel, located at the southernmost point of the building.

Now you know where to find all four Midnight Suns elemental rods, it’s time to grab that second moon seal and start breaking down barriers.

Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 is finally out, giving fans access to a slew of iconic multiplayer modes, as well as few new ones. Arguably one of the biggest Call of Duty games to date, there are numerous changes to the core gameplay such as an improved Gunsmith, a reworked Perk system, and a newer movement system. The new system will help you cover the map quicker, and in case you want to get the upper hand, here’s what you need to know on how to slide in Modern Warfare 2 multiplayer.

Sliding in CoD Modern Warfare 2

In order to slide in Modern Warfare 2, you’ll need to push O, B on your PlayStation or Xbox controller, or push C while running on PC. If you press either of those buttons without running, you will change stances instead of sliding.

As you can imagine, sliding is a very helpful mechanic. Use the slide movement to get in and out of cover, or you can completely bamboozle your opposition by sliding right at them. Will it work? Probably not, but it’ll be a great way to throw the element of surprise at them. 

If you don’t like the predetermined button for sliding, head into your settings, and you can change it to your liking under the “Button Layout Preset.” Some players prefer to switch the melee and sliding buttons for a more natural experience.

That is everything you need to know on how to slide in CoD Modern Warfare 2. While you’re here, be sure to check out all of our other Modern Warfare 2 guides, such as the how to mute other players in your multiplayer experience, and how big the install size will be.

FIFA 23 Chris Willock Rulebreakers SBC Guide



Image Source: EA Sports via Twinfinite

FIFA occasionally surprises us with a one-build requirement for specialty cards. David Raum, a Bundesliga Rulebreaker card was only available for one build earlier this week. We have Chris Willock from QPR this time.

While an attacking midfielder in the English Championship might not look all that appealing, you should not discount the power of an England-based FIFA player. Willock's Rulebreaker adjustment means that he can play like a striker while also passing like a midfielder. Add in the speed of a winger, and you have a fun card.

These are the requirements:

Chris Willock

Min. Min. 1 TOTW player in your Starting.XI.Min. 1 TOTW Player in your Starting.XI.Min. 83 OVR Team Rating.

FIFA 23 Chris Willock Rulebreakers SBC solution

This build requires only an 83-rated squad. We recommend it wholeheartedly. To get a TOTW card of low rating, you will need to spend at least 10,000 coins. You won't need to spend a lot on the rest of the squad.

You may be able check off one box depending on how many English players you have. Below is our solution, but be aware that the transfer market fluctuates constantly. As always, keep that in mind.

Chris Willock: 18,000 to 20,000 Coins

Vlachodimos TOTW: 10,500 Ricardo Pereira: 900 Gimenez: 900 Pique: 900 Angelino: 900 Koke: 950 Henderson: 950 Dani Olmo: 650 Wirtz: 750 David Silva: 900 Zapata: 900

We recommend that you look for a TOTW goalkeeper rated at 84 to fulfill two requirements. Vlachodimos is the man to look for. You can fill your squad with 83-rated guys and, as you can see, even with occasional 82-rated players. This is one of our favorite specialty card SBCs.

This is all you need to complete the Rulebreakers Chris Willock SB in FIFA 23. Twinfinite has more information and tips for you.

We recommend that you look for a TOTW goalkeeper rated at 84 to fulfill two requirements. Vlachodimos is the man to look for. You can fill your squad with 83-rated guys and, as you can see, even with occasional 82-rated players. This is one of our favorite specialty card SBCs.

>Sons of the ForestThe Sons of the Forest release date has been a hard one to pin down. Seemingly in a horror survival of its own, every time we get close to it, it manages to wriggle free and escape our clutches. The anticipated follow up to the acclaimed The Forest was slated for release in May 2022, but developer Endnight Games deemed this date “overly ambitious”, pushing its release to late 2022. Apparently that too was overly ambitious, and a new release date was set – will this one stick?

Beyond announcements concerning the Sons of the Forest release date, Endnight Games is keeping details about the survival game remarkably close to its chest, and comms have been few and far between. Aside from a handful of creepy teaser trailers, we’ve been kept in the dark about what players can expect from the horror game. The Sons of the Forest Steam page is similarly brief, but promises crafting, co-op, and yes – cannibals.

Sons of the Forest release date

The Sons of the Forest release date is February 23, 2023. While, as we mentioned above, there is no guarantee that this won’t change again, the original announcement from Endnight Games claimed that this would be the “last time” the date would be pushed back.

Sons of the Forest is the follow-up to cult-hit The Forest, released in 2018. As the lone survivor of a plane crash, you must battle creepy cannibals and starvation in order to stay alive in the mysterious titular forest. It sold really well, so it’s no surprise that the team is working on a sequel.

:Hogwart's Legacy gameplay makes Harry Potter's fantastic beasts mounts: Hogwarts Legacy gameplay shows rideable fantastic beasts in action: a close up of the playable wizard is Hogwarts Legacy, with their hooded hufflepuff robe on

>Hogwarts LegacyWith the Hogwarts Legacy release date edging ever closer, any new footage or information about the Harry Potter game is always welcome. Luckily for us, we got exactly that and some brief Hogwarts Legacy gameplay at a recent event, showing us a few more features we can expect from the Wizarding world, alongside some more game details at large.

The short Hogwarts Legacy gameplay clips come from audience videos at Brazilian Comic Con CCXP, as the development took to a live stage to show off some of the music, brief cutscenes, and some gameplay too.

Our biggest glimpse at Hogwarts Legacy gameplay (of the footage shared online at least) shows the player riding what looks like a fantastic beast of some kind. This comes courtesy of Caco Cardasi (and shared by Hogwarts Legacy Brasil) on Twitter, who was at the event live in the audience for the gameplay.

Beware of minor Hogwarts Legacy gameplay spoilers if you want to go in completely blind, but there’s some cool Harry Potter-esque stuff going on. You pull a giant beast out of a tiny bag! Absolutely classic magic here, letting you channel your inner Newt Scamander to somehow tame and use the fantastic beasts (yes, I’m using that term deliberately) of the Harry Potter universe when traversing the grounds of the Hogwarts Legacy map.

O NOVO TRAILER! 🚨🚨🚨🚨🚨 pic.twitter.com/6rRkoFku7q

— Hogwarts Legacy Brasil (@HogwartLegacyBR) December 3, 2022

It can be a little difficult to tell, but this looks like a Graphorn, which is a four-legged beast with a humped back and skin tougher than a dragon’s, so barraging through enemies isn’t all that surprising.

There was also some footage of Slytherin companion Sebastian at CCXP as well, although what we saw of that was much less revealing. They’ll be one of many companions based on each Hogwarts house, each of which will also have its own Hogwarts Legacy common room too.

A live performance of music from Hogwarts Legacy from CCXP should also be releasing at some point on December 5, according to community manager Chandler Wood, so keep an eye out for that too.

If you can’t wait for the Harry Potter game, why not check out footage of a Hogwarts Legacy fan remake that’s helping an indie developer learn the ropes, or find out how to import your house and wand into Hogwarts Legacy ahead of release.

The creator of the Harry Potter series, JK Rowling, has made a number of transphobic remarks on social media in recent years. While WB Games says “JK Rowling is not directly involved in the creation of the game”, it is based on her work and it’s still unclear if she will receive royalties from its sales. If you’d like to learn more about transgender equality or lend your support, here are two important charities we encourage you to check out: the National Center for Transgender Equality in the US, and Mermaids in the UK.

But among all " ["content"]=> array(1) { ["encoded"]=> string(6264) "



If you search for alternatives to Dota 2 for mobile devices, you will face various copy-paste games that do not differ from each other. But among all this trash, you can find AutoChess MOBA, one of the best analogs of Dota 2 for mobile devices. This game includes various interesting mechanics and a significant number of regularly updated heroes.

Read this guide, and you will learn all you need about AutoChess MOBA. Below you will find some general information about the game, the list of all heroes, further updates, and more. So, there is no time to lose. Let’s get started!





WHAT IS AUTOCHESS MOBA?

Before continuing with some practical aspects of AutoChess MOBA, it would be best to discover more about the game itself. AutoChess is the most classic and straightforward MOBA game you can find on mobile devices. There are 3 lines, and the main base you need to protect. The game ends when one of the bases is defeated.

Also, during the round, heroes become stronger and stronger. For example, a hero can solo-destroy towers in the last game’s stages. Therefore, you should carefully consider what to do while leveling up your hero during the match to become as strong as possible.





HEROES IN AUTOCHESS MOBA

Once you know more about the game, it would be best to learn about the most exciting part of this game - the heroes. It is not a big secret that the better you know all heroes in MOBA games, the higher your win rate will be.

There are 25 heroes in AutoChess MOBA. Every hero in this video game is individual and requires a unique approach. Each hero has different skills, stats, and other things you need to adapt your gameplay to. And in the list below, you can find all the available heroes in the game nowadays:

Tome Apprentice - SupportRedfox Swordsman - WarriorSunchaser Shaman - MageSunchaser Servant - WarriorSpace Walker - WarriorThunder Trace - MageAvenge Knight - WarriorSacred Lancer - WarriorGod of Thunder - MageWarpwood Sage - TankSwordman - WarriorSkull Hunter - WarriorThe Source - MageEgersis Ranger - MarksmanRedaxe Chief - TankDwarf Sniper - MarksmanDominator - WarriorGrim Touch - SupportDualplot - AssassinTsunami Stalker - TankDefector - SupportSky Breaker - TankSoul Breaker - AssassinDoom Artbitwe - WarriorFlame Wizard - Mage

Most heroes in AutoChess MOBA might remind you of Dota 2 heroes. Therefore, this game will be easier for you to start if you are experienced in Dota 2. If not, there might be problems with discovering such a high number of unique heroes at once.

Also, you should keep in mind that developers regularly add new heroes to the game. Therefore, if you read this guide in 2023, there might be more heroes in AutoChess MOBA.

HEROES SKILLS AND ROLES





In AutoChess MOBA, every hero has a unique role and skill. Among the available roles are Warrior, Mage, Assassin, Marksman, Support, and Tank. You should create a strategy for a specific hero considering his or her in-game role.

According to the game role, every hero gets special skills he or she should use during the match. For example, Tanks have skills increasing their survivability, while Marksmen and Assasins will deal significant damage.

There are two universal classes with balanced skills - Support and Warrior. Heroes of these classes have attacking and defensive skills in their setup. Also, they are pretty balanced in their stats. However, such heroes appear to be the most challenging to play in the game.

MOBA AUTOCHESS MAP





One more critical aspect of AutoChess MOBA is the map. There is only one map available in the game. Therefore, perfect knowledge of the map will significantly increase your chances of winning.

The AutoChess MOBA map is based on Dota 2. So, there will be no bushes to hide behind like in other MOBA mobile games. However, there will be 6 creep camps in the jungle where you can farm experience and gold.

One more important thing to know about the AutoChess MOBA map is the two altars on each side. By capturing one of these altars, every team member will get 100 gold, which is a pretty good reward in the early game stages. Also, you can find special orbs near every altar. These orbs are one of the most overpowered things in the entire game. They will significantly improve your hero’s speed, damage, health points, and gold earning for your hero.

FURTHER UPDATES

Fortunately, there is still a lot of stuff that can be added to this game. New heroes, battle pass, skins, seasonal updates, and other content are waiting for us in the future. And the best thing about it is that the developers are ready to work and listen to the community.

In conclusion, AutoChess MOBA is one of the best alternatives to Dota 2 on mobile devices. Even though this game is highly straightforward, such simplicity is the key to success, especially when we talk about MOBA games. While you're waiting for Autochess MOBA, you can take a look at the best MOBA games for iPhone and iPad or the best MOBA games for Android phones and tablets.

In Phase 10: World Tour's latest update, players can look forward to participating in the Frozen Candyland event by playing black cards in Journey mode. Here, they can score holiday candles that they can use to redeem decors and candy canes. These candy canes can attract animals with fun holiday treats into the playground; plus, players can also add them to a winter collection album.

Clearing the event will reward players with the exclusive secret pet “Woosh” the Snowman. More than just a new addition that elevates the festivities this season, Woosh can also provide a special boon for players when it comes to the actual card game - this snowman can freeze your foe from discarding their last card.

Nvidia RTX 2060 and GTX 1660 GPUs on blurred green backdrop

>Gaming hardwareNvidiaNvidia has apparently discontinued the GeForce RTX 2060 and GTX 1660, two of the most popular graphics cards on Steam. Super variants of the GPUs are also reportedly getting the chop, but the GTX 1650 and 1630 will seemingly live on.

The Nvidia RTX 2060 and GTX 1660 aren’t best graphics card contenders in terms of raw performance, but both are being used by players more most other GPUs.That’s according to Valve’s latest Steam Hardware Survey, which places both ahead of newer releases like the RTX 4080. The GeForce RTX 3060 takes the lead, but it’s still impressive to see two 2019 cards maintain their popularity.

Sadly, recent reports by BoardChannels state the duo is now discontinued, as Nvidia wants to shift its “product sales strategy” focus to RTX 3000 production (via Wccftech). While retiring older product lines isn’t unusual in itself, the green team’s RTX 2060 12GB refresh is relatively hot off the press.

RTX 2060 and GTX 1660 production should persist until AIB supplies dry up, and BoardChannels says some vendors have already cleared out their inventory. Unlike the latter card, the GTX 1650 and 1630 aren’t heading to the GPU retirement home quite yet, but there’s a chance we’ll see 1660’s siblings follow suit in the near future.

RTX 4000 GPUs might be the next big thing, but Nvidia CEO Jensen Huang previously revealed that RTX 3000 is still still “part of the new family.” In other words, Ampere will likely serve as a lower-cost alternative throughout Lovelace’s time at the top, or at least until the RTX 4070 and rumoured RTX 4050 arrive on the GPU scene.

Sadly, recent reports by BoardChannels state the duo is now discontinued, as Nvidia wants to shift its “product sales strategy” focus to RTX 3000 production (via Wccftech). While retiring older product lines isn’t unusual in itself, the green team’s RTX 2060 12GB refresh is relatively hot off the press.

RTX 2060 and GTX 1660 production should persist until AIB supplies dry up, and BoardChannels says some vendors have already cleared out their inventory. Unlike the latter card, the GTX 1650 and 1630 aren’t heading to the GPU retirement home quite yet, but there’s a chance we’ll see 1660’s siblings follow suit in the near future.

RTX 4000 GPUs might be the next big thing, but Nvidia CEO Jensen Huang previously revealed that RTX 3000 is still still “part of the new family.” In other words, Ampere will likely serve as a lower-cost alternative throughout Lovelace’s time at the top, or at least until the RTX 4070 and rumoured RTX 4050 arrive on the GPU scene.

>Marvel's Midnight SunsLooking for a Midnight Suns characters tier list? The strategy game features 13 playable superheroes, each with their own unique abilities and important parts to play in saving the world. While some are stronger than others, it’s all about getting a team that synergises well. While having three tanks may make you unstoppable, you won’t have enough damage to thin the ranks of Hydra, while three DPS threats won’t be able to sustain Lilith’s onslaught for long enough to do their job.

Not every character on our Midnight Suns tier list is immediately available to you when you start the campaign in one of the best strategy games of the year, so don’t stress if you’re worried you’ve missed your favourite member of the roster.

Midnight Suns characters tier list: Magik knockbacks an enemy with her limbo infused powers

S-Tier

Captain Marvel

There’s simply no better tank in Midnight Suns than Captain Marvel. Right out of the gate, her ability to give out hits just as hard as she can take them makes her a great choice for any team composition. She signs even brighter, both figuratively and literally, when she activates her Binary ability after three card plays, making her already excellent move set even stronger.

Magik

The environment is a powerful tool in Midnight Suns, and no one uses it better than Magik. Her ability to reposition enemies just where you want them with her Limbo Portal can be invaluable for AOE abilities, as well as making the best use of environmental hazards. Her legendary ability, Darkchylde, also ranks as one of the best in the game, granting Magik invulnerability and taunting every enemy for a turn.

Spider-Man

Spider-Man is as fast as he is deadly, much like his arachnid namesake. Chain Strike deals high damage and can target up to four enemies once it’s upgraded, making it an ideal for cutting down weakened enemies. Meanwhile, Opportunist can give you that extra oomph you need to secure a KO, by removing the cost of two environment attacks. Check out the best Spider-Man build here if you’re looking to create an OP deck.



Midnight Suns character tier list: An ablaze Ghost Rider throws their hooks towards an enemy

-Tier

Captain America

While he’s not quite a top-tier tank, Captain America is still more than capable of soaking up tonnes of damage. He can quickly relieve pressure from allies with Dig In, smacking enemies back with the upgraded version of the card. Tactician is also quite powerful, providing two heroic points, a large amount of block, and allowing you to draw two cards.

Doctor Strange

Doctor Strange is a hybrid that acts primarily as a support, but his buffs can seriously help increase the amount of damage your team can do. Blessing of Vishanti quite literally increases the attack values of abilities in your hand, and he can deal a good amount of damage himself too, if you manage your heroic essence carefully, with abilities like Bolt of Balthakk.

Ghost Rider

If you enjoy the thrill of taking risks for an ultimately greater payoff, then you’ll want Ghost Rider by your side. His fiery abilities such as Immolate can create a chaotic chain reaction of explosions, while Lash lets you smack enemies about in any direction if you can pay the toll of taking a bit of damage yourself.

Iron Man

Iron Man is another hybrid of sorts that leans more towards a damage role, relying on redraws to enhance his abilities with additional effects. Leave It to Me can really help Tony Stark’s cards thrive, and it’s a particularly powerful combo when paired with Air Superiority.



Midnight Suns character tier list: Blade (left) stands ready to draw his word, while Captain America (right) stands ready to take a hit

B-Tier

Blade

While Blade is in a league of his own when it comes to cool factor, he’s an above-average damage dealer at best. Strike is one of the best abilities early on in the game, helping to clear up multiple targets. Unfortunately, his kit works best when your enemies are bleeding, which means he ends up being quite reliant on cards like Make ’em Bleed and Glaive to truly shine.

Hulk

Hulk arrives very late in the campaign for Midnight Suns, making his overall usefulness a bit hard to define. For the short time you have him around before the final mission, the not-so-jolly green giant can hit enemies like a truck, but unless you’re utilising him in a new game plus run, he’s too underdeveloped to be of much use.

Nico Minoru

Given the unpredictability of the Staff of One, Nico can just as easily feel like the most powerful hero in your team or a sitting duck. She’s the closest thing that Midnight Suns has to a healer, with abilities like Blood for Blood and Restore. Sadly, there’s not much need for healing abilities unless you’re playing on the higher difficulties, making Witchfire her most valuable card if you can maximise its usefulness.

Scarlet Witch

Scarlet Witch arrives fairly late in the campaign, so you’ll need to work a little harder to build up her deck. Her base cards aren’t fantastic, but she can be built to put out decent AOE damage with cards like Unleashed, Chaos Reigns, and Hex Field.

Wolverine

Another late addition to the roster, Wolverine thankfully arrives with a great set of starting cards. The main reason he pales in comparison to other tanks is his reliance on lifesteal from Beserk which only lasts one turn, and the health-boosting Rapid Healing.

Don’t let our ranking deter you from picking someone who better fits your preferred play style, but our main advice is that you take a tank, damage, and support on each mission.

If you haven’t got all the characters available to you yet, check out our guide on how to unlock characters in Midnight Suns. For those of you looking for the best Midnight Suns Hunter build, we’ve got you covered there too.

Halo Infinite Forge map - a blue Spartan patrols a recreation of the central lobby in the Nakatomi Plaza from Die Hard (1988)





Ken Allsop

>Halo InfiniteA new Halo Infinite Forge map gives you yet another reason to bring up the “Is Die Hard a Christmas movie?” debate with a stunning recreation of the Nakatomi Plaza high-rise in the Microsoft and 343 Industries sci-fi FPS game. That’s right, you can now take on your pals in some high-octane Halo action across the famous halls where John McClane overcame Hans Gruber in the 1988 classic.

The Halo Infinite Forge map ‘Faux Plaza’ is created by Bearskopff, who says that this is the first Forge map they have built in Halo Infinite. It’s a rather spectacular effort, centred around the main plaza area where the hostages are held during the main segment of the film. The map offers a beautiful take on the fountain gardens, while service stairs allow easy access to the upstairs.

You can even get up into the elevator shaft and explore the vents, of course, in case you’ve ever wondered what a TV dinner feels like. Though perhaps Spartans are used to the enclosed spaces. Overall, it’s an incredible recreation that does a great job of capturing the look and dimensions from the movie – all that’s missing is the body of a Banished scrawled with the words, “Now I have a Needler. Ho, ho, ho.”

You can watch the trailer for ‘Faux Plaza’ below, which is followed by some comparison shots to demonstrate its recreations of iconic moments from the film along with some gameplay of the map in action.

The Halo Infinite ‘Faux Plaza’ can be found over at Halo Waypoint (thanks to Rebs Gaming). Bearskopff has even created an additional mode designed to help you re-enact the heroics of everyone’s favourite NYPD hero and wannabe cowboy. Yippee ki-yay, Master Chiefers.

If this tempts you to jump into the multiplayer game for the first time, check out the Halo Infinite system requirements to see how your gaming PC stacks up. You might also be interested in a Halo Infinite Forge Mario 64 map of Peach’s Castle. Otherwise, take a look at our guide to the Halo Infinite bosses if you’re tackling the campaign, or how Halo Infinite ranks work if you fancy a bit of competitive multiplayer.

Terraria update 1.4.5 paused for December break - a Terraria house featuring several festive paintings of snowmen, Skeletron in a Santa hat, and a Christmas tree, along with a bunny in a Santa hat in the corner

>TerrariaTerraria update 1.4.5 is set to follow on from a massive update to one of the best sandbox games on PC. It’ll have to wait for a while, however, as developer Re-Logic announces that the team will be shutting down for the month of December for a well-earned break. Now that Terraria 1.4.4 update Labor of Love is out, along with all the additional tweaks and bug fixes that followed its release, the team is taking an extended holiday before it begins development on Terraria update 1.4.5 and a future Terraria crossplay patch.

Re-Logic vice president Whitney ‘Cenx’ Spinks says, “Re-Logic is shutting down for the month of December!” She adds, “I am so proud of the work our team has done this year and look forward to starting the next final update in January.” As you might expect from a game with an all-time 97% positive rating on Steam, the community are responding overwhelmingly with enthusiasm for the decision, thanking the Re-Logic team for its hard work and wishing them a pleasant break.

“This is one of the big reasons I continue to happily support you,” one response reads, “A software company that cares about people. That allows them to not only have, but enjoy, a life out of work.” Some fans did jokingly say the announcement gave them a moment of initial panic reading the first line, as their notifications simply showed the “Re-Logic is shutting down” part of the message.

This isn’t the first time that Re-Logic has spoken about working conditions, as Terraria creator and Re-Logic president Andrew ‘Redigit’ Spinks responded to comments made by Glen Schofield in September about Callisto Protocol crunch at Striking Distance Studios. “Re-Logic employees only work four days a week, get plenty of holidays, and frequent bonuses,” Spinks remarks, “You should have a life outside of your job, no matter how passionate you are.”

The Terraria State of the Game post for November 2022 says that the fixes for Labor of Love are now complete and that 1.4.4.9 is considered “the ‘final’ fixed version of Terraria 1.4.4 – meaning that the team can now turn its attention towards 1.4.5 and beyond. It also says that Terraria crossplay is still very much on the cards, explaining, “Crossplay planning is in full swing and we feel pretty good and confident with where we have netted out in those discussions,” though it notes that there is still some admin work to be done before any further details can begin to be shared.

While the Re-Logic devs are on break, they’re having plenty of fun on social media. A joking suggestion from Terraria YouTuber James ‘ChippyGaming’ has seen him adopt the mantle of “temporary CEO of Re-Logic” and solicit suggestions for future updates on Twitter. Meanwhile, multiple members of the development team are replying to his posts with a variety of funny and sarcastic responses.

Once development resumes in 2023, fans can look forward to the Terraria Dead Cells crossover coming in update 1.4.5, although the team says that Terraria 2 development “sounds a little bit better right now,” suggesting that focus is shifting towards a potential sequel following the reveal of some fun Terraria 2 concept art in August. In the meantime, we’ve got all the best Terraria mods to keep you busy in 1.4.4, along with a complete Terraria bosses guide to help you work through the game’s full progression and defeat the Moon Lord.

>TerrariaTerraria update 1.4.5 is set to follow on from a massive update to one of the best sandbox games on PC. It’ll have to wait for a while, however, as developer Re-Logic announces that the team will be shutting down for the month of December for a well-earned break. Now that Terraria 1.4.4 update Labor of Love is out, along with all the additional tweaks and bug fixes that followed its release, the team is taking an extended holiday before it begins development on Terraria update 1.4.5 and a future Terraria crossplay patch.

Re-Logic vice president Whitney ‘Cenx’ Spinks says, “Re-Logic is shutting down for the month of December!” She adds, “I am so proud of the work our team has done this year and look forward to starting the next final update in January.” As you might expect from a game with an all-time 97% positive rating on Steam, the community are responding overwhelmingly with enthusiasm for the decision, thanking the Re-Logic team for its hard work and wishing them a pleasant break.

“This is one of the big reasons I continue to happily support you,” one response reads, “A software company that cares about people. That allows them to not only have, but enjoy, a life out of work.” Some fans did jokingly say the announcement gave them a moment of initial panic reading the first line, as their notifications simply showed the “Re-Logic is shutting down” part of the message.

This isn’t the first time that Re-Logic has spoken about working conditions, as Terraria creator and Re-Logic president Andrew ‘Redigit’ Spinks responded to comments made by Glen Schofield in September about Callisto Protocol crunch at Striking Distance Studios. “Re-Logic employees only work four days a week, get plenty of holidays, and frequent bonuses,” Spinks remarks, “You should have a life outside of your job, no matter how passionate you are.”

The Terraria State of the Game post for November 2022 says that the fixes for Labor of Love are now complete and that 1.4.4.9 is considered “the ‘final’ fixed version of Terraria 1.4.4 – meaning that the team can now turn its attention towards 1.4.5 and beyond. It also says that Terraria crossplay is still very much on the cards, explaining, “Crossplay planning is in full swing and we feel pretty good and confident with where we have netted out in those discussions,” though it notes that there is still some admin work to be done before any further details can begin to be shared.

While the Re-Logic devs are on break, they’re having plenty of fun on social media. A joking suggestion from Terraria YouTuber James ‘ChippyGaming’ has seen him adopt the mantle of “temporary CEO of Re-Logic” and solicit suggestions for future updates on Twitter. Meanwhile, multiple members of the development team are replying to his posts with a variety of funny and sarcastic responses.

Once development resumes in 2023, fans can look forward to the Terraria Dead Cells crossover coming in update 1.4.5, although the team says that Terraria 2 development “sounds a little bit better right now,” suggesting that focus is shifting towards a potential sequel following the reveal of some fun Terraria 2 concept art in August. In the meantime, we’ve got all the best Terraria mods to keep you busy in 1.4.4, along with a complete Terraria bosses guide to help you work through the game’s full progression and defeat the Moon Lord.

Railbound Review - Screenshot 6 of 6

Railbound, the latest title from Polish studio Afterburner, makers of Golf Peaks and inbento, is a super-cute puzzler of polished presentation and deceptively monstrous difficulty. It starts ever so innocently, asking for a little railway line to connect a carriage to its engine, and sings with toots and chuffs as a billow of smoke from the locomotive clears to reveal the next stage. By the 100th level, however, it becomes a head-scratcher that’ll wear your nails to nubs.

The goal is to couple cars to engines in numbered order. A level starts with one to four cars spaced around a grid and the engine sitting at the edge of the play area. You have a fixed number of track pieces that can go in any direction, turning and branching off each other. You connect the cars to the engine with rails such that car number one will arrive there first, followed by number two and so on. When you press go, the cars rattle along charmingly and you see if your plan worked. It’s so intuitive a concept that we’d played a good 20 levels before we realised that this is absolutely not how trains work.

There are eight sets of stages, each set introducing a new mechanic, such as barriers that must be opened by running over buttons, or numbered stations to be stopped at by the appropriate car. It’s a bit of a shame that gimmicks from previous sets are sometimes left behind rather than expanded on and combined with new mechanics. However, the later challenges do start to tie everything together in wonderfully complex ways.

We won’t pretend that we only used the hint system to test it out for you, dear reader: we’d have been completely stumped without it on the closing levels. It works by revealing the correct placement of a few track sections at a time, requiring a bit of additional trial and error before a further hint is available. It’s a good balance of making you have a proper try but not making you suffer.

Controlling all this is entirely pleasurable. The small grids are swiftly navigable with the controller, and good button assignments mean there’s no fiddling through menus. It’s equally delightful to play with the touchscreen and even makes use of some satisfying HD Rumble. Switch seems like the perfect platform for the game.

There’s a fair handful of hours to be spent working through over 150 puzzles, although we did have a couple of small gripes. For one, some of the cleverer tests are off the critical path, so their instructive ideas might be missed along the way. The play grid did also feel rather limiting by the end. The small area meant there was probably only one correct answer to most, if not all, puzzles. The train-set appeal of building creatively felt like it was always just over the horizon, but we never got there.

However, there’s no resisting the charm of Railbound’s chirpy cel-shaded models and, although they belie some fiendish challenges, the difficulty curve is as smooth as it is steep. Perfect for handheld play, Afterburn has laid down a great addition to Switch's library of puzzlers.

Get into a flow state

Stacklands starts simply: Open a pack of three cards, each with a resource like “rock” or “wood” on them, then stack them to craft new resources. Sell cards to get coins, which can be spent on larger packs with different resources. It’s a familiar gameplay loop for any management sim lover; it puts players into a catchy flow state that’s reminiscent of Dorfromantik, with its ambient, tile-placement puzzles. But Stacklands’ deceptively simple package hides deep gameplay that sucked me in for hours.

Stacklands’ visual design is straightforward, making the game easy to jump right into. A banner across the top of the screen shows the card packs you can buy, and the board space lets you place or stack resource cards. It opens like a great alchemy game, where much of the fun comes from trying wacky combinations — like using two villagers to create a new villager (a third card is required, which I will let you figure out on your own). Some of these configurations are more obvious, like “stick” and “flint” making “campfire.” Eventually you’ll be throwing two corpse cards together to see what happens. But it’s not all on you to figure out: As you buy more card packs, you’ll encounter “idea” cards that offer recipes for more advanced crafting.

The challenge ramps up, but it never feels like a steep learning curve. The first big hurdle is keeping villagers fed. This is how I initially spiraled out of control on my first run: Berry bushes have limited uses before disappearing, so I had to craft something renewable. My villagers starved before I could figure it out. On my second run, I stockpiled food before realizing there was a maximum card limit. The game also throws in silly curveballs. Random chaotic cards show up in card packs, like a “chicken” that produced “egg” — great for crafting “omelet” — but the damn chicken also rambled about the play space, causing chaos. My neat piles of cards became a disorganized splay.

As you grow the number of villagers, you’ll need to defend against giant rats or goblins that emerge from “strange portal” cards that appear. The late game (which took me three or so hours to reach) naturally transitions into battle planning. Kit villagers out with specific weapons to turn them into mages, warriors, and more. Weapons and armor are described with a firm tongue in cheek, with helmets like “rat crown” or “rabbit hat.” Eventually, you’ll need to assemble your best A-team to fight a final boss. It’s in line with Loop Hero, where each pass — or day cycle, in Stacklands’ case — allows you to build a stronger fighter.

Stacklands rounds out to one of the most immediately accessible and engaging card-based roguelites I’ve played this year. It took practically no time to learn, and it will consume so many of my hours to come.

Sword of the Vagrant Review - Screenshot 8 of 8

After launching on Steam in 2017, O.T.K Games’ The Vagrant has finally released on consoles with the new alias Sword of the Vagrant. The game is heavily inspired by the games of Vanillaware; renowned developers of games like Muramasa: The Demon Blade and Dragon’s Crown. This inspiration can be seen straight away with the wonderful hand-drawn art style, and even down to the smaller elements like the animation and the uhh… let’s call it “sometimes gratuitous” character designs.

A 2D hack-and-slash adventure with some light Metroidvania-style exploration elements, Sword of the Vagrant places you in the shoes of Vivian; a young sellsword sailing toward the island of Mythrilla in search of her missing father. After being faced with a mysterious owl guy, her ship conveniently wrecks on the beaches of Mythrilla. After assisting a young local woman, Vivian returns with her to a village in ruin and is soon cursed by an evil witch who demands that she retrieve magic artefacts, or else she will destroy Vivian instantly. To ensure our hero does not try and escape, the witch sends her disciple Camden along for the journey to keep watch.

The Vagrant's story is interesting; however, due to the sheer amount of exposition between the characters, it can be easy to lose the thread of what exactly the characters are discussing. However, Camden's character arc throughout the journey and his relationship with Vivian are highlights, their scenes together helping to humanise the latter and her usually stone-cold demeanour.

Vivian starts off with a fairly barebones moveset, making the early game a bit of a slog at times. However, once you begin to unlock extra combos and special moves — through a skill tree finding items in the overworld — combat gains a bit of momentum and becomes more interesting. That momentum doesn’t last, as Vivian's combo list ends up consisting of just a handful of different combos, meaning that repetition returns.

There's no autosave system, meaning death will send you back to when you last saved; luckily, this isn't an issue for most of the game as the overworld is rarely a challenge, and most bosses have a save point just before their arena, except the final boss where a long, tedious structure and lack of checkpointing easily added an hour to our nine-hour playtime.

As we mentioned, the art style looks great and the game runs well in handheld mode, although it has the tendency to get a bit choppy when docked. We also ran into a few glitches over the course of the adventure, the most common causing Vivian to just slide across the screen while stuck in a crouch animation, and a soft lock later in the game in which the character would not stop walking right into a wall. By no means are these extreme and you would hope they'll be patched, but they got a bit frustrating over time. These issues aside, Sword of the Vagrant held our attention and, especially considering the modest asking price, is still worthy of light investigation if you're a fan of rough-and-ready hack-and-slashing.

It’s a stripped-down Roland Emmerich disaster movie and a Norwegian kaiju movie at the same time

“You may have thought that these were special effects,” Norway’s prime minister tells her nation in a televised address late in Netflix’s import action movie Troll, referring to news footage of a gigantic troll lumbering across the country. “But this is not a fairy tale,” she says. “This is real.” There’s a flash of meta humor in that line, because the monster, with its busy beard, bulbous nose, and glowering expression, really does look like a cartoony but well-designed special effect. There just isn’t a particularly realistic way to depict a 50-meter humanoid creature made of “earth and stone,” leaving Godzilla-style destruction in its wake. Still, Troll (not to be confused with the 1986 American horror movie of the same name, or its unrelated, notoriously all-time terrible sequel) is more of a sincere monster movie than a tongue-in-cheek exercise.

Leaving aside the self-aware aspect of a movie character insisting her movie story is “real,” the film’s troll isn’t a fairy-tale creature reimagined with the quasi-scientific explanations of a ’90s-style techno thriller or eco-disaster movie, or redesigned to look more natural. It looks like it could have stepped out of a storybook. And in spite of its use of Norwegian mythology, Troll owes as much to American disaster movies as it owes to old Japanese kaiju pictures.

In his home country, director Roar Uthaug has made a slasher movie, a children’s Christmas feature, and a historical thriller. But he’s probably best known for The Wave, a larger-scale disaster movie, and his sleek, muscular Tomb Raider reboot starring Alicia Vikander. In other words, he’s taken several cracks at Hollywood-style entertainment, in his home country and abroad. Troll, like The Wave, feels like a pared-down version of a Roland Emmerich blockbuster. Specifically, it resembles Emmerich’s 1998 version of Godzilla, reconfigured for greater speed and efficiency.

That might sound low-rent at best, and profoundly unnecessary at worst. But there are plenty of advantages to shedding Hollywood-approved bloat while maintaining a kind of gee-whiz energy. For one thing, Troll gets right to the point: When a mysterious incident leaves a trail of what look like gigantic footprints across the Norwegian countryside, the government calls in paleontologist Nora Tidemann (Ine Marie Wilmann) to consult. Nora, in turn, reconnects with her estranged father Tobias (Gard B. Eidsvold), a former folklore professor who has disappeared down a rabbit hole of his own fervent belief in the existence of mountain trolls. (The conspiracy-addled weirdo who turns out to be right is another Emmerich-beloved trope, and one that could probably stand a temporary retirement.)



A troll’s giant, moss-covered, stony feet stamp on planters in the middle of a nighttime city street in 2022’s Troll

Image: Jallo Faber/NetflixThe father-daughter material is pretty thin, as are the characters’ supporting allies: government nerd Andreas (Kim Falck), military man Kris Holm (Mads Sjøgård Pettersen), and token hacker Sigrid (Karoline Viktoria Sletteng Garvang). But the mini ensemble also has a likable, unfussy warmth. Even their silliest comic-relief bits are played with more grounding than the noisy caricatures favored by Emmerich or Michael Bay. Similarly, the movie refuses to impose a high-tech McGuffin on its monster-movie simplicity: A giant troll is heading toward Oslo for reasons the humans cannot understand. (At least until around the standard two-thirds mark of the movie.) They need to stop it from stomping on people, and they’re not sure how.

This lack of a clear objective does stall Troll’s dramatic momentum in spots. It’s hard to get invested in the obligatory clash between the outsiders and the military when neither party seems to have an opinion on what’s best to do in this situation, or even what the options are. Kill the troll? Study it? Befriend it? This is not a film of richly depicted sci-fi moral dilemmas, because the troll remains firmly in the realm of fairy tales turned real.

At times, Troll feels like it’s rebuking the very idea that monster movies might require any form of depth or metaphor. The trolls, for example, are said to have rampaged against the Christianization of Norway a thousand years ago. Sure enough, this resurfaced troll recoils at the sound of church bells, and can apparently smell Christian blood. But the movie ultimately doesn’t make much of these historically rooted details, in terms of how they relate to fears or clashing cultures. At one point, a character we barely know gives a rousing speech to a bunch of characters we don’t know at all, as if a little bit of inspirational yelling about not giving into fear will conjure a theme from material that appears actively averse to symbolism or subtext.

Image: Jallo Faber/NetflixOn that same straightforward level, however, Troll is a well-made giant-monster movie: The special effects look good, the action is legibly captured by Uthaug’s camera, and the monster has awesome destructive power that he depicts as if trolls are ornery animals rather than spiteful villains. Even the monster’s official introduction, 30 minutes or so into the movie, is handled as a clever framing trick, rather than the subject of endlessly protracted Spielbergian awe. Roar Uthaug is not a director who seems destined for greater, grander epics, and that’s one of his best qualities. He makes polished B-movies without the delusions of A-list grandeur.

It’s a stripped-down Roland Emmerich disaster movie and a Norwegian kaiju movie at the same time

“You may have thought that these were special effects,” Norway’s prime minister tells her nation in a televised address late in Netflix’s import action movie Troll, referring to news footage of a gigantic troll lumbering across the country. “But this is not a fairy tale,” she says. “This is real.” There’s a flash of meta humor in that line, because the monster, with its busy beard, bulbous nose, and glowering expression, really does look like a cartoony but well-designed special effect. There just isn’t a particularly realistic way to depict a 50-meter humanoid creature made of “earth and stone,” leaving Godzilla-style destruction in its wake. Still, Troll (not to be confused with the 1986 American horror movie of the same name, or its unrelated, notoriously all-time terrible sequel) is more of a sincere monster movie than a tongue-in-cheek exercise.

Leaving aside the self-aware aspect of a movie character insisting her movie story is “real,” the film’s troll isn’t a fairy-tale creature reimagined with the quasi-scientific explanations of a ’90s-style techno thriller or eco-disaster movie, or redesigned to look more natural. It looks like it could have stepped out of a storybook. And in spite of its use of Norwegian mythology, Troll owes as much to American disaster movies as it owes to old Japanese kaiju pictures.

In his home country, director Roar Uthaug has made a slasher movie, a children’s Christmas feature, and a historical thriller. But he’s probably best known for The Wave, a larger-scale disaster movie, and his sleek, muscular Tomb Raider reboot starring Alicia Vikander. In other words, he’s taken several cracks at Hollywood-style entertainment, in his home country and abroad. Troll, like The Wave, feels like a pared-down version of a Roland Emmerich blockbuster.

Some reliable, powerful cards just got a power hit

Marvel Snap’s latest update brings with it two new pools of cards, a new kind of earnable currency, and some fairly impactful changes to existing cards. All of those changes are nerfs, and they’re to popular cards like Angela, Mysterio, and Onslaught. They’ll probably impact at least one deck you rely on for Marvel Snap, so here’s what to know before you go into your next match.

Angela is having her power reduced from 1 to 0, seemingly because, well, she’s just too popular. “Angela is a card that sees a lot of prevalence across many decks,” Marvel Snap developer Second Dinner said in the game’s patch notes, “so we’re nerfing her a bit to make other options more appealing.”

Destroyer is also getting a power hit, dropping from 16 down slightly to 15. “Lowering his power by 1 will give opponents more of a chance to win the Location he’s played to,” the developer says. Mysterio, who deploys illusions to all locations, also gets a 1-power hit. “[T]hose extra 2/0 Illusions end up being quite beneficial, so we’re lowering his base Power,” the developer explains. Sera likewise gets a 1-power hit, merely for being “slightly too good right now.”

Finally, the all-powerful Onslaught, who can put big power numbers on the board thanks his ability to double other cards’ ongoing effects, gets a major adjustment. Onslaught’s ability now stacks additionally (instead of exponentially) with effects from cards like Mystique or locations like Onslaught’s Citadel. This should lead to fewer blowouts on locations as well as less time watching other abilities play out over and over (and over) again.

There’s a lot more — including a new Nick Fury card in the pool 3 collection — to digest in the game’s full patch notes.

Marvel Snap is available now on Android, iOS, and Windows PC.

The 2018 God of War revival brought back relevance to the franchise. Although God of War was a major franchise for Sony, it began to lose its steam. The series was relaunched with the PS4 version. The series is now back at the top and has received critical acclaim as well as hype for its sequel, God of War Ragnarok. Is it possible to play the original God of War games on PS4 or PS5? Here are the facts.

Re: The Original God of War Games for PS4 or PS5

Yes, with an asterisk. It is possible to play the original God of War games on your old PlayStation without having to buy or dust off an older console. However, it will be more expensive. Sony offers three different levels of PlayStation Plus online subscription. You can access online play and a handful of games for $60 per year. Increasing your tiers will give you more access.

This is the "Premium" tier, which allows you to play older games on PS4 or PS5. You can access PlayStation's streaming gaming service for $17 per month or $120 per year. This allows you to play PS3 games. The PS3 has the exclusive rights to God of War 3 & Ascension, which include the original God of War 2 games as well as their prequels on PSP.

It's not the best way to play PS3 games online. The streaming service suffers from the same issues as Cloud Gaming. This includes skipping frames, latency issues, and other problems. It's still possible to stream most games via streaming, but your mileage may differ. You can only play God of War 3 natively on PS4 or PS5 because it was remastered specifically for the PS4 to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the franchise.

It's still better than the alternative which would have you purchasing a PS3 and trying to find these games online at places like Amazon or eBay.

These are the steps to play the original God of War games on PS4 or PS5. You can read more about God of War by reading how to prepare for God of War Ragnarok and our review of the 2018 reboot.

It's still possible to stream most games via streaming, but your mileage may differ. You can only play God of War 3 natively on PS4 or PS5 because it was remastered specifically for the PS4 to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the franchise.

It's still better than the alternative which would have you purchasing a PS3 and trying to find these games online at places like Amazon or eBay.

These are the steps to play the original God of War games on PS4 or PS5. You can read more about God of War by reading how to prepare for God of War Ragnarok and our review of the 2018 reboot.

Bat-family, Gotham Knights is here! While it might not have the Arkham-like feel that fans were hoping for, there are still elements from the past. This is especially true for collectable side activities. We're not going to show you the Riddler trophies from old. Instead, we'll walk you through all Batarang locations in Gotham Knights.

Gotham Knights Batarang guide

Players can find 60 batarangs, which run from North Gotham to New Gotham. You can find some by identifying landmarks, while others are placed on rooftops or sides. To secure the batarang, players will need to run parallel to the building.

Let's move from one district to another in an attempt to locate them all. Each marker below was placed as close to the batarang location possible. These markers will lead you to the collectables, even though it might take some AR scanning.

Batarang Locations in Gotham Knights

Bowery -- This is located behind Knightsdome Sporting Complex on top of another water tower. For crying out loud, how many water towers can you find in Gotham?

Batarang #8



Image Source: Warner Bros. Interactive via Twinfinite

Bowery -- This is an alleyway near Croydon Avenue. It is possible to get lost in Gotham Knights' alleyways. This is why it is smart to use the AR scan.

Batarang #9



Image Source: Warner Bros. Interactive via Twinfinite

Otisburg -- This is located on Gardner Street's construction crane. A batarang is a similar device to water towers. If they are involved, you will always find them at its top.

Batarang #10



Source: Warner Bros. Interactive via Twinfinite

Otisburg -- This is located directly behind the first tower at St. Aloysius Church. This is the first of two churches. The batarang that you are looking for can be found at its highest point.

Batarang #11



Image Source: Warner Bros. Interactive via Twinfinite

Otisburg -- This is located near the train station, just before Wayne Tower. You can simply walk straight ahead if you are coming from Wayne Tower. In no time, you will be able to see your prize.

Batarang #12

Otisburg -- Located on the top of another building, near Foxteca on Berger Avenue.

Historic Gotham Batarangs

You can find 12 additional batarangs on Historic Gotham split between Old Gotham Island and Tricorner Island.

Batarang #1



Image Source: Warner Bros. Interactive via Twinfinite

Old Gotham -- This is located at the top of the hotel near St. Aloysius Church. On Grand Avenue. This could be done by using the AR scan, but first notice HOTEL in lights.

Batarang #2



Image Source: Warner Bros. Interactive via Twinfinite

Old Gotham -- This is located on Finger Street, at the top of ticket booth. Although the ticket booth is small, it is well hidden away. This means that there aren't many distractions.

Batarang #3



Source: Warner Bros. Interactive via Twinfinite

Old Gotham -- This is the highest point of Gotham City Cathedral. The tippy top.

Batarang #4



Image Source: Warner Bros. Interactive via Twinfinite

Old Gotham -- This is the topmost building in the vicinity of Logerquist Avenue. All you have to do to get to this street address is to look up. This is your building.

Batarang #5



Image Source: Warner Bros. Interactive via Twinfinite

Old Gotham -- This is located directly behind Gotham City Hall or in front depending on where you are coming from. Again, it is directly.

Batarang #6



Image Source: Warner Bros. Interactive via Twinfinite

Old Gotham -- This church is located next to Gotham Bay Bridge at the highest point of St. Swithuns Church. There's another church! Some have gargoyle vantage point at the top.

Batarang #7



Image Source: Warner Bros. Interactive via Twinfinite

Tricorner Island -- This island is located near St. Adrian Avenue, on the Statue of Justice. That's the place to find the batarang if you are looking for the hand that holds a torch.

Batarang #8



Image Source: Warner Bros. Interactive via Twinfinite

Tricorner Island -- This island is located near Fort Dumas' cannons. It's located on top of one the brick walls. This will require some strafing but it's not as difficult as these collectables.

Batarang #9



Image Source: Warner Bros. Interactive via Twinfinite

Tricorner Island -- This island is located near the Robert Kane Memorial Bridge. It's behind an exit sign that says "North Bowery". Once you have found that sign, the batarang will be yours.

Batarang #10



Source: Warner Bros. Interactive via Twinfinite

Tricorner Island -- This island is located at the top of NTS New Tricorner Shipyard between South and Quarterdeck Road. These creatures often reside at the top of buildings, as we have already mentioned.

Batarang #11



Image Source: Warner Bros. Interactive via Twinfinite

Tricorner Island -- This island is located on a lamp at the intersection of Quarterdeck Avenue and Robert Kane Memorial Bridge. This is, quite frankly, one of the most fascinating locations.

Batarang #12



Image Source: Warner Bros. Interactive via Twinfinite

Tricorner Island -- Near Operations Road, near Kane Industries. It is on a slope and marked with the same markings as the slope above. Look to the left for Kane Industries.

Downtown Gotham Batarangs

Last but not least, Downtown Gotham is divided between the Financial District (West End) and Downtown Gotham's Batarangs.

Batarang #1



Image Source: Warner Bros. Interactive via Twinfinite

Financial District -- Located at Gotham City General Hospital's top. This is the top. Once you are in the area, it's hard to miss this building.

Batarang #2



Image Source: Warner Bros. Interactive via Twinfinite

Financial District -- Located at top of Elliot Center. Another example of a batarang that is easy to obtain, and another building with a name.

Batarang #3



Source: Warner Bros. Interactive via Twinfinite

Financial District -- Located at top of Gotham City Shopping Center.

Batarang #4



Image Source: Warner Bros. Interactive via Twinfinite

Financial District -- This district is located at the top Union Station Belfry Clock Tower. The Belfry is the home base of players and should be well-known. The batarang is located at the top. It doesn't matter if it's a water tower or a clock tower, the goal is the same. You will be rewarded if you reach the highest point.

Batarang #5



Image Source: Warner Bros. Interactive via Twinfinite

Financial District -- This area is located in the middle of Gotham City Tower Apartments. A hidden area is another.

Batarang #6



Source: Warner Bros. Interactive via Twinfinite

Financial District -- This is the area located on top of the clock tower. It's not a water tower at this point.

Batarang #7



Image Source: Warner Bros. Interactive via Twinfinite

Quartz Lab is home to the Financial District. It is located on the roof's lower ledge.

Batarang #8



Image Source: Warner Bros. Interactive via Twinfinite

West End -- Located near Classy Glasses, on Storrow Street. If you see the sign at the storefront as you approach, it's easy to know you are on the right track.

Batarang #9



Image Source: Warner Bros. Interactive via Twinfinite

West End -- This is located on the Gotham City Gazette's roof. It's located behind the "C" it City sign and is enclosed by a fence. There may be an additional activity once you reach this rooftop.

Batarang #10



Image Source: Warner Bros. Interactive via Twinfinite

West End -- Near a billboard reading "POLICE" near the Chelsea Tunnel Entrance. It can be found on the roof of a building just behind that billboard. This is your marker.

Batarang #11



Source: Warner Bros. Interactive via Twinfinite

West End -- This one, like the Chelsea Tunnel's, is located at a station with a red exterior. Although the station appears a bit run-down, we ask you to use our AR scanner.

Batarang #12



Image Source: Warner Bros. Interactive via Twinfinite

West End -- Located near the middle on the roof of GCPD Crimes Unified building. You'll find it quickly if you make your way to the top. This is the last batarang you can collect if you've found them in this order.

Alright. What are our thoughts? Before you answer, think carefully.

That's it, Bat-family. Although it's not as impressive as the Riddler trophies from Arkham City, these are all the Batarang locations for Gotham Knights. You can also find more tips in the game. Twinfinite also has other guides, such as 5 things to do before you start the game or how to get Nth Metal. There's plenty more information at the links below.

Tarkov-like battle royale game Hyenas hits alpha, sign ups open now: A member of the Pack from FPS game Hyenas holds some loot

>HyenasEscape from Tarkov and Marauders-style battle royale game Hyenas, in the works from Total War and Alien Isolation developers Creative Assembly, enters a new playable alpha, with Sega and FPS game fans able to sign up for the tester right now.

The Hyenas alpha will run from Friday December 2, starting 1pm PST / 4pm EST /9pm GMT / 10pm CEST, and conclude on Sunday December 4. Inspired by extraction shooters such as Escape from Tarkov and Marauders, Hyenas takes place in a dystopian future whereby the world’s richest people have abandoned planet earth in ships full of loot and artefacts. Your job, as one of the playable Pack, is to loot the luxurious crafts, steal as much as you can, and get out alive.

Developed by Alien Isolation and Total War’s Creative Assembly, and published by Sega, Hyenas features squad-based zero-gravity combat, with alpha 1.10 bringing improvements to the UI, controls, and the HUD.

“We’ve heard your feedback and will be bringing new features and improvements that will enhance your games, along with a few extra community surprises thrown in,” Alex Hunnisett, Creative Assembly’s live product director, explains. “At the core of this game is you, our players, and the Pack. It’s great to be able to create and evolve this experience for you to enjoy.”

You can sign up for the Hyenas alpha right now over at the game’s official site. Creative Assembly previously talked to us about the upcoming shooter, explaining how fast-paced, movement-driven gunplay forms Hyena’s core, eschewing the survival focus that underlies a lot of modern FPS games.

If you’re gearing up for the Hyenas alpha, you might want to try some other fantastic multiplayer games, or maybe the best co-op games on PC. You can also check out the best space games, if plundering billionaire’s ships for gold and goodies is right up your street.

Ford James >Published at 05:40 ET, Oct 28, 2022 >Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2The absence of a Modern Warfare 2 Hardcore Mode option in multiplayer has alarmed gamers upon the launch of the new Call of Duty shooter. There's no way to select hardcore from the menus. It is expected that the classic, no-HUD, faster-to-kill mode will be added to the game, but it will be different.

Although hardcore mode is not currently available in Modern Warfare 2, you will be able to choose it when the Modern Warfare 2 Tier 1 playlist option becomes available. The developers have changed the name of hardcore to Tier 1, but the mode is still the same. It is now unclear when hardcore (or Tier 1 as it is now) will be coming to Modern Warfare 2.

What is the point of hardcore in Modern Warfare 2's Modern Warfare 2?

Although we don't know the exact date, Infinity Ward confirmed that hardcore will be coming to Modern Warfare 2. We don't know when, but we are confident it will be available alongside Season 1's release date. Warzone 2 is also expected to receive it.

Hardcore fans who are reading this will not have to wait too long, thankfully. This is not ideal as the mode was not expected to launch on launch. However, it's not the only thing that's missing. Players are also curious about where they can view their Modern Warfare 2 stats, and challenges.

You can also check out our guide to Modern Warfare 2 guns to help you choose the right weapon for your core mode. We also provide the complete list of perks, killstreaks and when they are available.

Destiny 2’s latest season, Season of Plunder, is coming to a close after its debut back in August. With a little under five days left, all eyes turn toward the future of Destiny. Riding the new season hype, Bungie has released a new cinematic pointing towards where the next season will take Guardians while taking a moment to awaken legendary Guardian Osiris.

Check out the trailer below.

The visually appealing trailer features Saint-14 narrating the events that set up the new season. Former House of Dusk worker turned House of Light founder, Mithrax, studies the power hidden in Nezarec’s relics which are home to some great power. Mithrax manages to remove the darkness from the relics and converts them into a drinkable source of energy that the duo of Saint-14 and Mithrax give to the unconscious Osiris.

Osiris awakens from his unconscious state to the memories of the past, due to the power of the tea. He recounts hidden secrets that even Savathûn, the antagonist who caused Osiris’ bedridden state, is afraid of. The trailer ends with a peaceful moment, as the Guardians celebrate their victory before the arrival of Xivu Arath, sister of Savathûn and Oryx is seemingly confirmed to arrive.

Destiny 2 Season of Plunder ends next week. Check out all of our curated content below to help you wrap up the season’s conquests and to prepare for the battles ahead such as the community event running until the season’s end. While you’re at it, check out a few gift ideas for the Destiny fan in your life.
