Jason Moore's Apartment Safe Code in Vampire The Maskquerade Swansong

First, you will need a code in order to unlock Jason Moore's safe. The code is located on June's wall. The code is June's birthday which is 04/09/11.

Atlus recently conducted a survey to open the possibility of a new Persona title for the Nintendo Switch and Xbox. It was limited to North American residents and was available only from May 13th through May 15th.

Persona has existed since the launch of the Playstation 3. The franchise was originally a spin-off from Shin Megami Tensei. Persona has been available mostly on Playstation and Nintendo consoles. The Xbox and PC crowds got some titles like Persona 4 Arena Ultimax on their systems, but the majority of the titles are only available on Sony's systems. Persona 5's Metacritic page states that the last Persona title was released in 2020. The title received a 7.7/10 user score.

The Official Atlus Twitter account shared a post asking players to participate in a survey. One question got many players excited. One of the questions on the survey asked players if they would be interested to see a sequel to a number series. It also asked which platform they would prefer to play it on.

For US users, the Atlus User Survey has gone live!

We would love to hear your opinions in our annual survey. https://t.co/wRADp202PR

-- Official ATLUS West (@Atlus_West) May 14, 2022

This question could also benefit the Persona series. Megami Tensei and Etrian Odyssey were also mentioned in the question. Players may request that any of these series be added to their consoles.

We could see a future release of any of these systems depending on how the survey goes and how many people respond to it. These surveys are just one example of many tools developers use to discover what the players want and need. They also save time and money by not spending too much on projects that aren't in high demand.

We are eagerly awaiting an announcement from the developer about the future of these franchises. The survey's tweet has received a lot of engagement and fans are enthusiastic about the questions. Many players have been waiting for Persona 6's official release date. This survey has gotten a lot of excitement from players about the possibility of the next title being available on other systems.

Persona 6 has no release date.

Vampire: The Masquerade - Swansong reviewed by Gabriel Moss on PC. Also available on Xbox, PlayStation, and Nintendo Switch. Narration by Ryan McCaffrey.

Vampire: The Masquerade - Swansong constantly threatens to be a competent detective RPG, and it might've succeeded if not for the fact that it tirelessly gets in its own way. Its premise is interesting, but its heroes and villains are bland, and as a result, the lukewarm story takes far too long to rev up to its maximum potential. By the time you finally become decently invested in its three playable characters and their individual quests for survival in the politically-charged vampire underworld, Swansong has already reached its finale. It might fare better on a second playthrough since even its most brutally obtuse puzzles are only difficult to bypass once and you'll have some idea of which skills you should specialize in on a given level; then it's all about getting to see those alternative paths that you could've taken the first time around. But it takes such a level of patience to get there in the first place that it might just be too much to ask from any mere mortal.

Vampire: The Masquerade: Swansong presents a world of darkness to players. The narrative RPG allows you to take on three characters and make important decisions that will ultimately determine their fate as well as that the Boston Camarilla. This guide will help you if you're Galeb Bazory, and you don't know how to open Jara Dory's box.

How to open Jara Drory’s Vampire Box: The Masquerade – Swansong

The code is what will enable you to get the results you want. Here are the steps to help achieve this goal.

Talk to Kaius Leto. You will be assigned the task of bugging Jara Drory’s computer. You will find the box under the bed when you take the elevator to Primogen Level.

You will need two pieces of paper to locate the code.

Once you have combined the code, the code will be sent to the box. Follow the following sequence: Left, Right and Right. Then press the button at the top left.

This will allow you to see that Jara was doing her own investigation, and Kaius was wrong.

This is all you need to know to open Jara's box. Vampire:The Masquerade-Swansong has many other helpful guides, such as how to escape from the cell as Emem or investigate the Primogens. Twinfinite has everything else.

Are you curious about the best class in Elden Ring? Elden Ring has a robust character creation system that allows players to pick from a wide range of classes. However, a new survey has revealed that Vagabonds and Samurai are most popular across all platforms.

Based on player data, Vagabonds and Samurai appear to be the best starting classes in Elden Ring. This is not surprising considering the stats and equipment of the classes, which are among the most powerful in the game.

The Best Classes in Elden Ring

Famitsu conducted a survey of players and found that Elden Ring players voted Samurai and Vagabond as the best classes. These are the classes that were chosen by each participant:

Vagabond: 427Samurai: 424Prisoner: 153Confessor: 127Astrologer: 126Wretch: 108Hero: 101Warrior: 92Bandit: 75Prophet: 53

Vagabonds and Samurai are clear winners. However, it is surprising at how popular they are relative to the other 8 classes. The survey placed Prisoner third, but it received one-third as many votes from players than Samurai. This is a huge difference.



Vagabond is so popular

Vagabond is the default starting character in Elden Ring. It's easy to see why so many people choose it. This class is also the closest to a standard Dark Souls character. It comes equipped with the usual armor and sword as well as a shield. It is the vanilla class which is why it is so loved.

It is also very flexible, so players can build towards Strength, Dexterity or magic-based builds. This class can do almost everything. It is ideal for players who want to have a balanced first playthrough, or a character that can take several hits before they die.



Why is Samurai good in Elden Ring?

Samurai are the most unique looking class in the game. They're heavily themed towards European fantasy, which makes them stand out from all the others. People love Japanese RPGs. It's no surprise that the RPG genre is flooded with Japanese games. It makes perfect sense. It is also close to Sekiro, From Software's earlier game. Some fans may have chosen this class because of that.

Samurai are the most suited for Dexterity builds, which is why they're so popular with From Software fans. It comes with a Dexterity weapon, and a bow. This is something players will want to try out in Elden Ring as they are much more useful than Dark Souls.

Vampire: The Masquerade Swansong is this year's Forgotten City, a distinct narrative adventure that soars from the chances it takes. Player choice is front and center, and it’s nice to see these decisions turn into little games that carry significant narrative weight. Rarely have I played a game where I wanted to restart a scenario to undo bad decisions as I have here. Swansong makes you pay for your missteps and should be an excellent game for watercooler discussions with others who have played it.

Need a PlayStation 5? Multiple retailers are expected to stock PS5 restocks in the near future. We have all the information you need to be prepared for any stock drops this week. It doesn't matter if you know when the restock will be, adding a PlayStation 5 into your cart and then checking out can be a different story. This is why it's important to monitor multiple retailers. This is what we know so far about PS5 restocks for this week.

How to get alerted for 5 stock restocks

You don't have to follow every retailer's social media channels in order to be notified of a stock decline in advance. There are also a few tools that you can use if you want to purchase a PS5 console. Discord servers, mobile apps and Twitter pages all prove to be very useful.

Restock Target PS5

Target's PlayStation 5 restocks are very irregular. Target had three PS5 restocks opportunities recently on April 15, 18, 22. Target doesn't have a set schedule for online stock drops so it's impossible to predict when the next stock drop will occur. If you are determined to go that route, they tend to restock online in the mornings at 8 AM ET.

Target is one of few retailers that you can find a PS5 system in a local store. These stock drops are not advertised in advance, unlike online restocks. Brickseek stock trackers can help you determine if your store is stocking any systems every morning that they open.



Walmart PS5 Restock

Walmart usually restocks PlayStation 5 systems online at least once per month. Walmart last restocked PlayStation 5 systems online on April 7. Expect new consoles to arrive in May. Walmart+ members are not eligible for restocks, and the free trial is not valid.

These announcements are made ahead of time, so be sure to follow Walmart's Twitter account for more details. To be eligible for PS5 purchases, you can buy a Walmart+ subscription for $13 for a month.



mazon PS5 Restock

Amazon is the worst retailer for PS5 restocks. Although the last Amazon PS5 stock decline occurred on April 19, nobody knows when more consoles will be available, as its release schedule is so irregular. PS5 stock drops can only be made available to Amazon Prime members. The free trial will not work, just as with Walmart+. It's worth noting that consoles sell out quickly when they become available.



Restock PS5 Best Buy

Best Buy's stock drops can be unpredictable. However, it tends to restock PS5 consoles online every Friday between 12 and 3 PM ET. However, some restocks have occurred on Mondays or Thursdays so make sure you check your email every day. Best Buy has restocked PS5 systems twice since April. The next stock drop will likely be soon.

You can also check for PS5 systems in your local Best Buy. These steps will help you determine if the PS5 system is available locally.

Sign in to the Best Buy app. Search for the PS5.

Although it doesn't mean that Best Buy will stock the system, some customers have reported being able to find a PS5 console using this method.



GameStop PS5 Restock

Gamestop tends restock PS5 consoles at least twice per month. GameStop had PS5 consoles available in its stores on April 2nd and 23rd. GameStop has not yet held a restock in May so GameStop may only have one stock drop. It's almost certain to happen before the end, so here's everything you need to know.

GameStop does not often sell online stock. All PS5 restocks at GameStop are now in-store events. Keep an eye on the GameStop Twitter page for announcements at your local stores. If you choose this route, you will need to wait in line at the GameStop store but you will know when they have them.



PlayStation Direct PS5 Restock

PlayStation Direct is the best way to purchase a PS5, however it can be difficult to access. PlayStation Direct usually restocks PS5 consoles about once per month. The lowest stock drop is on April 25. You must sign up by email to gain access to the PlayStation 5. You can then wait in a virtual line to purchase one.

You don't need to race anyone, as you are guaranteed a time window to check out. However, you must first get the invitation.



Restock of ntonline PS5

Antonline hasn’t restocked PlayStation 5 since March 2. This means that a stock drop could occur at any moment at this online retailer. Antonline doesn't sell the PS5 on its own so it is not recommended that you buy one. If you choose this route, you will be required to buy a bundle of games and accessories.

Antonline has a Twitter account that will announce any PS5 sales.

The PlayStation 5 is now available.

Boltrend Games will host the second Closed Beta Test of Project Winter for mobile. This allows players to test their deceitful skills in the name of survival. The second Closed Beta Test for Project Winter is available to Android users around the world until May 19th. It will allow testers to get first dibs on this title and a data wipe once the beta ends.

Project Winter is a game where players can expect their friends (or them to betray those they most trust) to betray them. It's an eight-player multiplayer social deception game.

When playing an instrument, it can be thrilling to finally nail that song that you’ve been trying to master for some time. Rhythm games are built on this concept, challenging you to replay levels as many times as needed until you get it perfect. Sometimes rhythm mechanics even work well in other genres — just look at how Runner3 manages to pull off a rhythmic platformer. But what if we tried making a twin-stick shooter with rhythm elements? You’d probably get something a lot like Soundfall, the inaugural release from Drastic Games, a studio formed from Epic Games alumni. Though Soundfall doesn’t quite have the pipes to hit the high notes, it nonetheless provides an enjoyable action experience that’s quite unlike anything else on Switch eShop right now.

Soundfall places you in the role of Melody, a down-on-her-luck barista with incredible musical ability that largely goes unrealized. Before leaving for work one day, Melody sits down to listen to some music and finds herself transported away to a magical musical world called Symphonia. This is the place from which all music comes, but Melody’s arrival is not necessarily a good sign. There’s a rising power of evil monsters called Discordians that threaten the creation of music, and it’s up to Melody and friends to rise to their role as Guardians of Harmony and thwart the discordant threat.

The narrative here is hardly one that could be called ‘deep’, but it's the kind of feel-good story that fits well with the generally upbeat vibe Soundfall is going for. Positive themes and corny jokes abound, making for a story that generally stays out of the way while still providing some lightly emotional moments here and there. Plus, some important plot beats are punctuated by brief cartoon animations, and these help to imbue Soundfall with some fun character.

Meanwhile, those of you who aren’t as interested in the story will be pleased to know that there’s a free play mode as well, stripping out the story elements and just getting right to the point. Here, you can access levels at any time in any order, making it much simpler to replay your favorite songs and to keep retrying the ones giving you trouble.

That gameplay rests somewhere between a twin-stick shooter and a rhythm game, as you travel through each section of Symphonia to cleanse it of Discordians. Each level has a unique song playing in the background and your goal is generally to make it to the end of the stage before the song ends. If it does, the song simply loops and you receive a lower rank when you do make it to the goal. Along the way, you’re tasked with clearing out arenas of foes—sometimes with a few waves per arena—and picking up any treasure chests you may find on brief alternate routes.

The main gimmick here is that your proficiency in battle is directly tied to the music for that stage. If, say, you fire your gun ‘on beat’, you’ll do extra damage. If you do so off beat, your bullets won’t travel as far or do as much damage, and the gun will quickly overheat. If you’re having trouble finding the beat by ear alone, there are metronomes displayed both on the bottom of the screen and in front of your character, and the controller is continuously vibrating to the rhythm. At its best, this focus on linking the soundtrack and gameplay makes for a combat system that feels extra satisfying when you get in the zone and can consistently time actions on beat; at its worst, these rhythm elements feel like an annoying distraction to an otherwise solid twin-stick shooter.

The main problem that we observed is that the mechanics of a shooter and rhythm game don’t always mix well here. Rhythm games work because you are usually engaging in rigidly scripted and predictable sequences that test both reflexes and memory. Here, the enemy encounters are anything but scripted, as you zip around an arena and battle foes that act independently of the music. Your focus is on staying alive, and the needs of your survival don’t always align perfectly with the beat. A button press that was on time for dodging an attack may not have been on time with the music, meaning that there are constantly moments where there are clashes between what you have to do and what the music wants you to do.

In easier encounters, the rhythmic elements of gameplay enhance things because you have the time and space to wait the extra second or so for the next beat before you fire or dash. But in the more intense encounters, you don’t always have that luxury. This can lead to frustrating moments where you tap the fire button to light up a foe bearing down on you, only for you to get hit anyway because your attack was off beat. Imagine playing Super Mario Bros., but you could only make Mario jump when the music hit certain notes while Goombas and other enemies carried on advancing.

The point being, it feels like there are two different games here asking you to play them of both at the same time; one wants you to dodge and shoot through waves of foes, the other wants you to press buttons in tune with the music. Sometimes the challenges of both these games do align and you can play them both at once, but you’re very often forced in the moment to pick which one you’re going to play, and you’re punished regardless of which you choose.

In many ways, then, Soundfall can feel needlessly irritating, though it is supported by a well-implemented loot system that helps to keep gameplay interesting. You can use a variety of close and long-range weapons (all cutely themed after instruments), and each weapon will have unique stats and modifiers to set it apart. The loot follows the tried and true Borderlands-style color progression—blue items are better than green, purple items are better than blue, etc.—with rarer items having more modifiers to really lock in specific playstyles. Though you only get a couple new loot pieces per run of a level, it can be quite satisfying to gear up and retry earlier stages that gave you trouble in another attempt at a better rank.

As you progress the narrative, you also slowly unlock more characters with slightly different playstyles. One early unlock, for example, is a rocker friend of Melody’s named Jaxon. He uses an axe instead of a sword for melee, and his ultimate ability is an area-of-effect attack that looks like he’s diving into a crowd. Having these little differences between characters helps create even more depth for the equipment system, as you can explore different builds that emphasize each character's strength. More importantly, it also makes it easier to tell who’s who when you’re playing in co-op.

You can have up to four players in a party at once, and you can play either locally or through online invites. Though it does feel like Soundfall was designed more as a single player experience than one for multiplayer, it can still be nice to have a friend or two to help grind loot and get through the tougher enemy encounters. Plus, the gameplay is simple enough to grasp that nearly anyone can pick it up and get into it relatively quickly.

A game as heavily focused on music as this one lives or dies by its soundtrack, and this is fortunately one element where Soundfall doesn’t disappoint. Metal, Salsa, Jazz, Pop Punk, and EDM are just a few genres represented here; it’s a soundtrack that really has something for everyone. And while not every single track is a banger, there are plenty of high-quality tracks regardless of genre. Some songs are voiced, others are all instrumental, and it’s remarkable how all of them feel somehow consistent and complimentary with each other—like they all actually belong in the same soundtrack.



Soundfall Review - Screenshot 6 of 6

The visuals are a little less impressive than the music, but they do a good job of presenting you with this strange world to explore. Every stage will have things like dancing trees that move to the beat, and little touches like treasure chests resembling boom boxes provide some creative links to the music motif. Still, we were rather let down by the rather generic designs of the enemies you face and the fact that it doesn’t take too long before Soundfall starts pulling out palette swaps of foes. When you’re caught up in all the dancing environments and colorful explosions, it’s hard to be too disappointed, then, but it’s the kind of game that looks less appealing the more you slow down to take everything in.

Conclusion

Soundfall is interesting and original, but stumbles in its execution. The marriage of rhythm gameplay with a twin-stick shooter is a rocky one, and it’s hard not to think this would be a stronger game overall if it were focused solely on either the shooting or the rhythm elements. It can work harmoniously, but also causes frustration when its two halves pull you in different directions. Yet despite its clumsy moments, we’d still give Soundfall a solid recommendation, as its diverse and catchy soundtrack, RPG-esque character progression, and high replayability make this one easy to love. It maybe could’ve used more practice, but Soundfall overall delivers a strong performance.

As I try to get my nerves under control, the sting of another loss fades. I am preparing for a clash with a Sanguimancer that I have tried to kill a dozen times. Perhaps I will learn something as I race back into the fray. However, I have been down this path many times before and know that luck is more important than any other means of survival. Salt and Sacrifice can often leave me feeling empty and void of a sense of accomplishment, which in turn can sully the promises of its bounties or crafting systems.

After selecting a class from a few options and personalizing my dark marionette-like character I embark on an unwinnable encounter against a terrifying beast. I die almost as fast as I thought. Salt and Sacrifice demonstrates that the Dark Souls influence is still on its side. My avatar is now a "Spellmarked" entity that can be revived by a herbalist using mystical arts. It's not living or dead but somewhere in between. Marked Inquisitors are the ones who restored me with dark magic. They work under the king's name to hunt down mages and kill them by eating their hearts.





A runic portal within the Inquisitor settlement allows me to travel to any location where I can use the runic words. Marked Inquisitors can visit the damp and deciduous Ashborne Village and the dry and ruinous Bol Gerahn to find Mages. Although there are only a few locations, the vast majority of them are very accessible. There are many caves and enclaves that you can explore, as well as vertical landscapes that you can traverse. These lands are also where I learned to fight, hacking and slashing any trolls or spiders that tried to get in my way. You can also choose to use other classes, such as Highblade.

It was fun to learn the details of each area, including where my prey would be most likely to appear and what plants I could harvest to make precious healing items. Some doors are locked in key areas and require several mage hearts to open. Or an object such as a grappling hook, parachute-like cloth or a parachute-like cloth is required to soar to remote platforms. It is always thrilling to step foot in unfamiliar and potentially treacherous places. This was a highlight of my time with Salt and Sacrifice and made it easier to swallow the mage boss fights.

The Marked Inquisitors are hunting mages who were once normal people before they took their magic too far. Each element they are proficient in has made them monstrosities, and each pose a significant threat to the player. An Inquisitor is assigned to follow these monstrous mages on a hunt and to slay their minions before the boss takes off to another location. This continues until the mage is settled in a final battle area, where they can be consumed and their power taken away.





The Salt and Sacrifice experience's centerpiece, the mage hunts are annoying and often a nuisance. Even though I have been properly leveled up and equipped with the latest weapons and armor, I am still easily caught by minions, who either stun me into oblivion, or send me flying off a cliff to my doom. The fight against the mages is a confusing mix of powerful attacks and uninteresting patterns by the towering threats. It will take me most of my life, if I'm lucky, in one hit. While I love challenging bosses and punishing encounters, mages are often a pain to learn the patterns from, and they cause a lot of frustration.

A motherlode of items can be obtained by defeating a mage or consuming its heart. These items can be used to craft armor and weapons that are representative of the mage's elements (physical, fire, cold and light, dark, and/or toxic). You can also find mage outside of hunting quests, which allows you to gather more materials to make a complete set of gear. Tracking specific targets has been a pleasure. I was able to find ingredients that I could use to make the next set of equipment to make another fight more bearable. Due to my character build, I'm unable to use many of the hard-earned weapons or armor without severe penalties.

Salt and Sacrifice's progression system is confusing and limits any creativity that can be used to craft new equipment. Gear in the skill web cannot be locked so they are not available for crafting. The salt I get from enemies will give me a modest HP boost and Black Starstone which can be used to unlock nodes in the Tree of Skill. Certain skills can be used for specific stats, while others allow you to unlock weapons and armor with their respective quality tiers. While I did my research on the Highblade weapon, dexterity and armor stat paths early on, I couldn't use the armor upgrades that I had made without exploring other sections of the skill tree. I could not wear the tier of armor I had created effectively because of this. To be able to use the flame-imbuing special moves of my preferred Katana, I must contribute to one of the two magical paths on the internet. There are many times when I want to experiment with the various armor and weapon combinations that I have crafted and collected. However, the restrictions make it difficult and confusing to do so. Even though I have the right gear and skills tree unlocks, a mage may kill me immediately if I'm not prepared.

Salt and Sacrifice are two things I really want to love. The world, ideas of crafting and hunting, as well as the moody atmosphere kept me occupied for many hours. Its clunky progression system and numerous maddening enemy encounters make it difficult to forget the good times.

To be able to use the flame-imbuing special moves of my preferred Katana, I must contribute to one of the two magical paths on the internet. There are many times when I want to experiment with the various armor and weapon combinations that I have crafted and collected. However, the restrictions make it difficult and confusing to do so. Even though I have the right gear and skills tree unlocks, a mage may kill me immediately if I'm not prepared.

Salt and Sacrifice are two things I really want to love. The world, ideas of crafting and hunting, as well as the moody atmosphere kept me occupied for many hours. Its clunky progression system and numerous maddening enemy encounters make it difficult to forget the good times.

Evil Dead, a 40-year-old franchise, is still popular today. It has been a part of pop culture for decades and remains a favorite part of the pop cultural zeitgeist. It's rare to find a franchise that started as a campy horror comedy with critical acclaim and box office success. It's bloody and it's funny, as well as being extremely quotable. The film also made instant stars of Sam Raimi and Bruce Campbell. To add to this legacy, many games were made for the franchise. None of them are memorable, so let's name it Evil Dead: The Game. It has to do justice to the franchise and Saber Interactive did a great job. Read on for our review.

Evil Dead: What Game Is It?



Evil Dead: The Game, an asymmetrical multiplayer survival horror video game, is a little bit like a soup genre. However, it is joined by Dead by Daylight and other smaller titles such as Friday the 13th. Evil Dead's primary task is to stand out among these games. It must be as fun and robust as Dead by Daylight while still using its franchise roots to create an unique, layered experience that does not appear to be a cash grab.

It features both melee and ranged combat, with characters that are best suited for each as well as supplies or support abilities. The goal is simple: Survivors must secure the Kandarian Dagger and Necronomicon, defeat the Dark Ones, and exterminate the Demon player. Demons must not let the Survivors achieve their objective. Demons have two options to achieve their goals: kill all players or hold them off until the timer expires. If they have a high fear meter, the Demon player can possess survivors. This increases when they come across traps or when they are in dark places.

If the Evil Dead franchise is made into a videogame, there are many things to love. There is lots of hilarious one-liners and a main character who is very iconic. He is Duke Nukem and Doomguy, but hunts Deadites rather than aliens or demons. Even though he loses his hand, he grafts on a chainsaw while holding a sawed off shotgun in one hand. This makes him a great video game action hero. There are also a number of memorable and quotable supporting characters to Ash Williams. An Evil Dead game should look great on paper.

Baby, Hail to the King!

There is no central plot to the game, but rather a Missions mode which allows players to play solo and learn about various tactics and mechanics when they play online. You'll find story elements and characters from almost all of Evil Dead movies and shows in the game, such as a retelling of Ash killing his ex-girlfriend Linda and a reverse Army of Darkness plot, where Lord Arthur is brought back to the present and looking for a way to return home. These are unforgettable and allow Ash Williams to unlock his versions across the franchise.

Dead before Dawn



However, just like Ash, the best stories are those you share with your friends about how you survived, even if they seem like tall tales. You will find the Kandarian Dagger, Necronomicon and other items in the series. The central PvP combat in multiplayer is the same as the series. It is quite amazing to see how fast advantages can form and how desperate the situation can become for the Survivors when they are faced with a skilled Demon player. Is this enough to make it stand out from other asymmetrical horror game?

This experience stands out from other games in the genre because it draws on its franchise roots. Evil Dead is a gratuitously gory horror film that has been influenced by Sam Raimi, one of America's most renowned horror filmmakers. Even in the game, his influence is evident. For example, when you play as a Demon, but don't possess any deadites or set any traps, you can move freely around the map in a fast fashion and make crazy turns to smash through obstacles. You can create your own version of the chase scenes from TV and films by playing this game.

It's fun to play as Survivors. You'll face waves of Demon players unleashing deathites on you. Your weapons will be ranged and melee weapons that you can find all over the map. Combat is fast, intense, and responsive. The combat is primarily focused on shotguns and pistols. Special weapons such as the crossbow or sawgun are also included. However, melee weapons can be equally useful in an emergency. These weapons have the usual rarity and power-scaling structure of multiplayer games today - gray is very common, blue rare, purple epic, and orange legendary. It's amazing to be able to take down powerful opponents quicker than you can say "Fort Ticonderoga" when you have a legendary chainsaw.

It could have been a quick cash grab, but the game feels authentic and fits in well with the genre. The game's action elements are well integrated, making it more Resident Evil: Resistance than Dead by Daylight. However, the online experience is much more stable than the latter, provided you can join a session. The experience becomes deeper as you create your favorite character and meet other players who have invested similarly. This presents an increased challenge for both sides, including enhanced survivability and combat abilities.

The Visuals



Evil Dead: The Game is visually similar to the original franchise. It features gloomy lighting, mimicking Raimi's cinematic style, and makes the enemy designs pop. Some of the humor is lost in translation because this is a horror game. However, there are plenty of genuine Easter eggs to remind those who have been playing this game for years that it is still a great game. You will find convincing renderings of the Knowby Cabin, other locations in the franchise, and even little details like the Mini-Ashes of Army of Darkness which might occasionally burst from supply chests.

The gore effects can be quite impressive if you are fighting the Warlord's deadites. You will be able to shoot elite enemies and large chunks of flesh will disappear over time. Although it doesn't offer the same satisfying moments of Resident Evil 4's critical headshot, it does have some fun creative moments, especially if your favorite tool is the meat cleaver and chainsaw.



The game's map is rich in variety and inspired by the locations of the franchise. It also has a great atmosphere that runs smoothly on next-generation consoles. The map is easy to learn, but the objective locations change randomly every time you play them. Otherwise, it would feel tedious.

However, there are some shortcomings in the visuals department. The most obvious problem is with the character models for Survivors. They don't have voice lines and therefore can't sync up with audio. This results in creepy doll faces on otherwise beautiful models. It's a shame, because the models look very much like the characters in the franchise. It's strange not to see Ash smile and say a dated line, or Kelly look more alive. The deadites look fantastic, with all three armies looking very similar to how they were originally portrayed. Shouts to the originals with the exaggerated, white eyes and to the Eligos in Ash Vs. Evil Dead.

The Sound

Evil Dead: The Game creates atmosphere very well. Again, the voice lines are one of its strongest contributions. Although the looping music on the main menu can be annoying at times, you will forget about it once you are in a game session. The tension and dread will make you feel excited about fighting off the deadites. These sound effects can be convincing and effective, especially when performing a brutal, bloody kill.

Devious Demon players set up scare traps to enhance the experience, such as trees that make you jolt in you seat while you run past, only to have its sentient branches whip you and make you hear a ferocious growl.

The Issues



Evil Dead: The Game's main problem is not the design. It feels great to play, the missions are challenging but fun and can be replayed easily. And it's a great way to help your favorite characters reach their full potential. Overburdened networks often turn away eager players, saying that there are not enough servers. Demon players also encounter the problem of too many players wanting to play the role. There is only one slot per session. This can lead to long waiting times, but it doesn't necessarily break the game.

While the game is a fitting tribute for the long-running franchises, some of the spirit of the franchise is lost in the making of the game. The game isn't as funny or action-packed as it could be, which is not a bad thing, but it does feel less authentic. Although the voice actors do not make any references to Evil Dead, the energy is more like a Dead By Daylight. There are Fortnite elements in the map layouts and storm radius functions (such as Homecoming King). It's important to remember that this is the cost of adapting the franchise to a game. However, it still feels unique thanks to its roots, clever throwbacks and originality, even though Shemp's is supposed not to be cola.

Verdict



Evil Dead: The Game offers a varied and fun horror experience. You can choose to play as one of the four Ash characters or not. Although the online service can be frustrating when it is busy or overwhelmed, if you are able to get in on either side of the story, you will experience a wild world that has the feel of Sam Raimi, although it is more horror-oriented than comedy. You can make it a comedy experience by playing the Demon. This includes antics like stealing cars from Survivors to escape and leaving them stranded while you drive the car into the ditch.

It's great to team up characters such as Cheryl Williams, Lord Arthur and Amanda Fisher in new ways. This is a session that's best enjoyed with friends with promises of more content. Evil Dead: The Game's base retail price is half that of a typical game these days. This gives you plenty of bang, so shop wise. This one is a great survival horror game for all players.

S. An updated version for Nintendo Switch has been announced. It will be available at a later date. Check out our guides for the game!

This is an Apex Legends Mobile Wattson Guide, in which we discuss the Legend, the abilities, and the tips and tricks for using the character efficiently.

A description of the character

Catalyst Black, an upcoming AAA-quality battleground gunner from Vainglory was first revealed in mid-July. This post is for those who have been waiting eagerly for it, or just learned about it. We will be discussing everything about Catalyst Black, from its release date, to details about pre-registration and gameplay. It's all here. Let's begin.

Trailer for Catalyst Black

You can watch the Catalyst Black trailer below. Before we move on to our list of important information about the game, please give it a look.



About Catalyst Black Black Catalyst Black, an action shooter, has been developed and published by Super Evil Megacorp. It is currently being developed for iOS and Android, and will be released soon.

Catalyst Black is a great PvP game. You might be familiar with Vainglory's gameplay. However, they are very different.

CatalystBlack may look similar to any other MOBA at first glance. But it's far more than that. Although the camera angle looks similar, Catalyst Black is a shooter. We expect multiplayer shooters to be played in either a first-person, or third-person perspective. But here, you can play from a top down perspective. Although it's something new, I was able to quickly get used to it when I tried the beta. It was much more enjoyable than I expected.





Catalyst Black offers several game modes, including Slayer, Hydra and Eventide. Each mode has its own goals, but you and your team must defeat the enemy teams. You have a range of weapons, abilities, trinkets, special powers, and special abilities that allow you to transform into Primal, a powerful being, for a short-term.

It also has drop-in capabilities

Catalyst Black has a drop in feature. This feature allows you to join a friend's match quickly. This feature is only available to friends who are in the early stages of a match. This feature won't work if the match is already in its final stages. Instead, you'll have to wait until your friend finishes the match before you can play together.

What makes CatalystBlack different from similar titles?

Catalyst Black doesn't have unique heroes, unlike MOBAs such as Wild Rift and Arena of Valor. The heroes are the same but you have the option to modify your hero's abilities, guns and trinkets. You also have many Primals to choose from. While you wait for it to arrive, you can still check out the top MOBAs on Android and prime MOBAs iOS.

Who is responsible for it?

Super Evil Megacorp is developing Catalyst Black, the successor to Vainglory.

Catalyst Black Release Date - When will Catalyst Black be released?

???? GEAR, GUNS, GO! ???? May 25th marks the launch of the team battleground shooter. It features powerful guns, customizable abilities and magical primals from another world.

Pre-registered players automatically enter a raffle to win cash prizes and other prizes. Apple gift cards, Google Fit cards and iPhones are all up for grabs.

Is there any beta testing?

Catalyst Black is currently in closed beta in several countries around the world. We don't believe Super Evil Megacorp will announce or host any additional beta tests between the global release and May 25th.

Catalyst Black, a mobile-specific game, is a standalone title. It will allow cross-play between iOS and Android.

How do I download Catalyst Black

Normally, players want to be able to interact with each other in the Elden Ring world. However, according to Frontline Gaming Japan's survey, some players don't mind fighting at a distance.

If you ask 1700 players about their game play, you will find Dark Souls as well as Sekrio influences all over the board. Some of the answers were surprising, whether it was about how they distribute their stats or which weapons they choose.

Many weapons found in Elden Ring are staples such as Flails, Greataxes and Whips. All of these were defeated by the Crossbow, the 24th entry to the list. The Crossbow is small and agile, so you can fire off a lot of shots at once with very little damage. It seems that players are more comfortable fighting from afar in the latest FromSoftware game.

Elden Ring can be a difficult game so any advantage could help players. Surveys show that over 100 people have spent 300 hours or more playing Elden Ring.

These weapons may be more used by players who are becoming more comfortable with the exploration and combat that the world offers, but it is still amazing to see which weapons it outweighs. These weapons are outclassed by crossbows:

Great spearsFlailsGreat bowsWhipsTorchesGreataxesClawsLight bowsBallistaeFistsGreat Claws

Claws and Greataxes are both valuable weapons. However, their speed and range can make them less useful. Since Elden Ring is one of the largest games ever released, it's great to see all the different playstyles. The Crossbow allows players to fight at a distance with a Crossbow, which will allow them to tailor almost every aspect of the game.

It is important to find your preferred playstyle and weapon. You should be prepared for your journey to the Lands Between. Find out all you need about Elden Ring.

AOC recently announced a mini LED gaming monitor. AGON Pro AG274QZM, a QHD panel at 240Hz, is designed to balance performance and a high-spec viewing experience. It can be used with the most popular FPS games as well as cinematic gaming PCs.

AOC's mini LED gaming monitor has impressive specs, as well as a 240Hz refresh rate and HDR1000 certification. This certification means that the display has 1,200 nits peak lighting, which will make the best PC games even more enjoyable. It also boasts HDR capabilities with 576 dimming zones. This allows for deeper blacks and brighter colors.

While the best gaming monitors have refresh rates exceeding 240Hz, it is great to see more mini LED screens embracing this screen standard. There are many options, such as Samsung's Odyssey Neo G9, but AOC's offer is attractive at just PS999.99. This works out to about $1,246 USD.

The price of mini LED gaming monitors is difficult to justify, but the AGON Pro AG274QZM may make it a standard. Micro LED screens are gradually but surely making their way onto our screens, raising the bar for display quality.

It can be difficult to understand screen specs, and standards such as HDMI 2.1 add an additional layer of confusion. VESA and Nvidia have created an adaptive sync standard that will make it easier to choose a gaming computer portable.

Sometimes we have flown the SIGONO OPUS flag on Switch - there's been OPUS The Day We Found Earth (inwhich you follow clues in order to find stars and planets), and OPUS Rocket of Whispers (an emotive tale told largely through top down exploration). Today's Indie World showcase featured the third entry. It's available today on Switch.

The Opus: Echo of Starsong Full Bloom Edition was added at the end of the sizzle reel. It has been well received since its launch on Steam. Here is a part of the official description.

Echo of Starsong, a visual novel-style adventure game, is available. Starsongs are a name given to asteroids that emit a sound called "Starsongs". They have become the focus of much conflict due to their immense power. A young man sets out to find asteroids for himself and a girl who can mimic starsongs. She lends her voice to help unravel an ancient story deep within space.

It will be available on the eShop shortly. Are you interested in purchasing it?

pex Legends Mobile on iOS

Apex Legends Mobile is, thankfully, better than just a carbon copy of the PC and console versions of the game. It offers more than what a smaller, more portable version of Apex Legends would — the game has its own separate identity with exclusive content that should pique the interest of existing players, giving them a reason to pick it up and try it out. Though, my iPhone 8 did struggle to run the game at certain points, so quality may vary depending on your mobile device.

The Apex world and lore stay the same here, so the main differences come from gameplay options and the slight adjustments in how content like the battle pass and ranked seasons work.

Even the tutorial is unique in that Mirage leads you through the specific basics of mobile gameplay as opposed to learning the ropes with Bloodhound and Pathfinder, which is appreciated since controller support isn’t arriving until sometime after launch.

This mobile-specific tutorial is also a positive for someone like me who has little experience playing FPS games on my phone, even though I’ve played every single season of Apex Legends to date. I never would’ve known that there’s a new third-person option, for example — let alone how to enable and use it.



Apex Legends Mobile Mirage Trailer

The most attention-grabbing difference here is that there’s a mobile-exclusive Assault-class Legend named Fade who won’t appear in the PC and console editions — at least, not yet. This is likely going to be one of the biggest reasons for existing players to try out Apex Legends Mobile.

Like Ash, Fade is another character who uses the same Void technology as Wraith. His Tactical, Flash Back, allows him to rewind back through the Void to a spot where he previously stood. Think Tracer from Overwatch if that’s hard to picture. And to go along with that, his Slipstream Passive provides a speed boost after slides.

Fade’s Ultimate, Phase Chamber, also uses the same tech, which gives him the ability to actually throw a device that sends anyone caught inside its AOE into the Void. This traps them in that dimension, cutting them off from the real world and shutting them out of the action for a short time. It’s great for crowd control when overwhelmed by multiple enemies.

Fade feels like a fully fleshed-out Legend that could work even beyond mobile devices. His inclusion also helps you forget, if only for a little while, that many of the existing DLC Legends aren’t available on mobile. The launch roster includes Bloodhound, Gibraltar, Lifeline, Wraith, Caustic, Mirage, Bangalore, Pathfinder, Octane, and Fade. So, it’s likely that some of your favorites might’ve been left off the list.



Apex Legends Mobile Roster

Looking beyond the addition of Fade, there are whole new game modes and LTMs to choose from that run separately from what’s on PC and console. The most notable one being the inclusion of a standard team deathmatch mode.

TDM allows players to team up in 6v6 matches and choose whatever loadout they want for free, unlike in Arenas. There’s both a random respawn and base respawn option here that determines where players will return to battle. No matter which you choose, you’ll always be able to switch Legends and loadouts after each death.

TDM feels like a natural progression of the Apex Legends game modes, especially knowing that all of this stems from Titanfall in one way or another. A similar LTM, Control, was added in Apex Legends Season 12: Defiance, but that was more akin to Titanfall’s Hardpoint Domination.



Apex Legends Mobile Game Modes

Going deeper into the exclusive gameplay features, we have Perks, which are essentially buffs that give Legends more passive bonuses in matches. These include gaining Evo Shield points for finishers, scanning for enemies, and more. They’re all gained through leveling up by using the character you want Perks for.

Legends also have some exclusive Perks. For example, certain Perks make it so that Bangalore smokes can give her the ability to see enemies through it while aiming down sights, and Fade can Flash Back while downed. I’m sure you can see how these twists on existing abilities can be extremely powerful.

Some Perks are so powerful, in fact, that the Perk feature is completely disabled in ranked modes so that gameplay stays as balanced as possible. Regardless, this is yet another change that makes Apex Legends Mobile more intriguing for both newcomers and those who have been playing Apex for a while.

Speaking of ranked modes, the ranked seasons in Apex Legends Mobile don’t stay around as long as the PC and console ones. Here, each ranked season lasts for two months and contains two parts with different battle passes. Battle passes are also monthly and will change much more frequently than what current players will be used to. In theory, this seems like a good way to keep things fresh, ensuring that there’s regularly new content to collect or strive for.



Apex Legends Mobile Fade Perks

Even with all of the new content, there are still a few kinks and omissions that need to be mentioned. I’ve been playing Apex Legends Mobile on an iPhone 8, and have been met with more than a few crashes along with low frame rates in battle royale modes.

Getting into a large firefight in World’s Edge or Kings Canyon can be rough, to say the least. So rough, in fact, that Kings Canyon’s battle royale map is being delayed and will be added to the game post-launch.

A game can have all of the features in the world but if it can’t run smoothly, there’s no reliable way to enjoy them. I’m saying this as someone who knows that a newer phone would likely run the game better, but this was my experience with nearly every battle royale match ahead of launch.

As expected, TDM and Arenas run much smoother, and those modes are where I had most of my fun as a result.

Apex Legends Mobile offers more than you’d expect in terms of new gameplay and overall content options. Certainly more than enough to warrant a download, especially with the nonexistent price tag.

There are definitely issues that need to be ironed out in terms of the battle royale gameplay quality, but whether you’re in it for the new TDM mode, exclusive Legend, third-person option, or even just some new cosmetics, there’s bound to be something here that gets players excited — or interested, at the very least.

The Centennial Case: Shijima Story on PlayStation 5

Japanese mystery games are not a new concept. They are often played out as visual novels like Zero Escape and Danganronpa. We're seeing the detective work through an FMV (Full Motion Video), and it still feels very appropriate. There's lots to love if you like detective films.

The Centennial Case: Shijima Story begins with Haruka Kagami, a mystery novelist, being approached by her friend and science consultant about visiting his family's estate to write a feature about their cherry blossom ceremony. He wants her to investigate the "Fountain of Youth" that has been passed down through my family...and a newly unearthed skull. To describe this as family drama would be an understatement.



The majority of the present-day story serves as a frame story, Haruka's first exploration into a 100-year-old Japanese short-story magazine. The majority of chapters in the game are retelling past events. The roles of the past segments are filled by the cast of the present-day story. Harkua is forced to use her imagination because the stories are old and missing parts. This is why the story ends with Harkua being unable to explain it. This is a brilliant idea and works well, especially since Haruka remains the detective.

The Centennial Case: A Shijima Story is a wonderful and long movie. Sometimes, Haruka will be presented with dialogue options. These are usually just binary square/circle choices. They don't mean or change anything. If Haruka chooses a dialogue option that she thinks about, you can rewind and replay it. It doesn't allow you to choose another option or replay her thoughts.



Many times, the two choices were only halves of the same thought. The split didn't make any sense other than to make it feel like I was doing more than watching a movie. There are no branches to the story. Each playthrough tells the same story.

I don't wish to make it seem like I'm reducing the story. The film is well shot and well-acted. There are two audio tracks available: one in English and one in Japanese. The dub was the one I chose. Although it wasn't as natural-sounding, the voice actors who were hired to do the dub did a great job and conveyed the right emotions. Their efforts were the reason my immersion was never broken.

I wish the game could be played as a single film, without breaks. This would make it much easier to share the great cinematic story with friends. Even though you have to go through each clue, there are still some surprises that I enjoyed.



The game's chapters follow the same format. When certain clues are displayed on-screen, the story unfolds. You can press triangle to continue. You also feel like you are contributing to this story. The real investigation begins once the victim has been identified (no spoilers). After the scene of investigation is over, you will be thrown into "cognitive reasoning space" where you will begin to solve mysteries and find clues in the Reasoning area. Here is where the real detective work begins.

You will be given a few red hexagons, which are mystery boxes with grey hexagons surrounding them. These clues must be filled by the player. This hexagon puzzle can be assembled in an immersive investigative manner. You can also choose the clues that correspond to the mystery using only text connections.

The easiest way to solve the puzzles is to just connect the triangle shapes that are shared by the clues. It was disappointing that I didn't have to do much work in order to reach the final result. The whole game felt like it was holding me hand as I wanted to move on to the next part.



Hypotheses are formed when mystery and clues are connected. Hypotheses are short scenes, mostly text, that speculate on different aspects of the crime. These hypotheses are intended to stimulate your thinking and help you answer any questions correctly. Hypotheses can be spot-on, or completely off base. You will have to decide for yourself.

The scene after finishing the Reasoning stage takes you to a summary where you lay out what the most interesting/noteworthy thing about the crime is to you. Although it feels like a huge decision, it is actually not.

The iconic scene where the detective explains the why and whodunnit was a classic of the genre never got old, no matter how long the game continued. It made me long for the time when I could just sit back and watch the action unfold, rather than taking multiple choice tests that broke up the cool tension.



The Centennial Case: Shijima Story is a remarkable collection of semi-connected detective stories. It was an amazing combination to witness a whodunnit and help piece together the mystery. Although the investigation can be a bit too structured, it is worth watching the suspect react to your efforts as you collect evidence. It's impossible to imagine a better game than when you can just relax and watch the story unfold.

Eiyuden Chronicle : Rising is an action/RPG that's simple to understand. It is easy to lose yourself in the tranquility of collecting stamps through fetch quests or combat. Rising lacks substance. It's a bland experience that commits many RPG mistakes, which is disappointing. It's especially disappointing because it is a prequel that introduces the Eiyuden world before Eiyuden Chronicle A Hundred Heroes, which is a spiritual successor of the Suikoden series. If this is a sign for what's coming, I'm worried.

Rising's protagonist CJ is a young adventurer who hopes to be a treasure hunter. CJ sets up camp in a town known for its rich resources and attracts adventurers from all over the world. She teams up with Garoo, a friendly and stubborn kangaroo, and Isha, a sharp and skilled magic user. While the main story serves to move you to your next destination and reveal some mysterious, potentially dangerous threats, it also provides some insight into why they have. The narrative is predictable and very generic.

I was disappointed by the lack of connection between the characters and the story. CJ and Garoo have some charming interactions, and I was delighted to see Mallore, a magical girl, appear. This is clearly a nod to Sailor Moon. These personalities are more like character sketches than fully-formed individuals. It's difficult to feel any connection with them, unfortunately.

Rising's town-building feature is a major aspect. This allows you to help villager set up shops in order to increase the settlement's prosperity. You are constantly upgrading various stores such as a tavern or inn, apothecary and weapons shop. Although the town-building may seem like an interesting addition, its tedious fetch quests are the biggest disappointment. The quest giver will usually ask you to find a person or obtain certain resources. You then trek back to the same area.

It quickly becomes a lot of chores to build a town. They aren't difficult to do. They are also very tedious and do not provide much satisfaction. Although the shops stock up, it is a bit more crowded in town, it doesn't give you a sense of progress. Each effort earns stamps that show your town's completion level. After doing quite a few of these, my interest in prioritizing side content waned. However, I realized that I was not up to the task if I didn’t engage with the quests, which offer great experience. This can be frustrating as it forces you into dull pursuits that have little substance and no storytelling. Side quests should be optional and not mandatory.

The dungeons are broken down into short romps. I like this because they don't feel heavy and lend themselves to short play sessions. This was until I found myself backtracking through the same dungeons and fighting the same minibosses over and over again. If you enjoy exploring, the game is fairly linear. This is not the case. Dungeons are very linear and have few hidden paths. Their main attraction is finding rare items that can be used in crafting, equipment upgrades, or cooking. The overall design of dungeons is very simple and tied to different elements (e.g. fire, earth, and ice). The final bosses in each dungeon provide an interesting challenge and are at the very minimum, visually appealing. I loved the furry ice twins who could transform the floor into pure ice. They required you to jump double and do combos until the floor lifted.

Another area that's just right is the action combat. You can create powerful combos by switching between your party members and their attacks using the different buttons on the controller. You can unlock new abilities as you level up. These include air jumping and quick steps. These abilities did not give me a greater sense of power or satisfaction. The link combos were more satisfying and deadly. Despite that, the game was well-managed and I did not encounter any major technical problems or glitches during my time on Switch.

2.5D art deserves praise. Rising is an exciting adventure with vibrant visuals and a personal touch. While the graphics are reminiscent of Suikoden's retro aesthetic, they feel fresh and modern enough to be exciting. The portraits of the characters are rich and detailed. Even the smallest details like grass moving in the wind and snowflakes falling, make the graphics stand out.

Rising was designed to reward Kickstarter stretch goals supporters. However, it's more than an add-on. It is a full game that can be played for around 20 hours. Natsume Atari was appointed developer with input from Rabbit & Bear Studios (the creators of Hundred Heroes). The experience is mediocre at best. Its art style is a positive point, and makes me optimistic for the main game.

However, pretty visuals are not enough to get you anywhere. Eiyuden Chronicle : Rising isn't entertaining enough or has enough unique content to make it more than a passing RPG. It introduces the Eiyuden universe and the characters in Hundred Heroes. But that's not enough to make it worth your while.

Achilles Legends Untold Early Access reviewed on PC by Jarrett Green. Narration by Kerry Palmer.

There's no reason that, in a good amount of time, Achilles: Legends Untold couldn't turn into an action-adventure game of mythological proportions. The fundamentals are all in place, including a decent idea for a story. But all you get when you buy into its early access version is mundane combat, an empty world, and by-the-numbers plot, all of which are a Trojan Horse for a load of bugs and glitches so heavy Atlas couldn't lift them.

We wait patiently to see what Sony has in store for us next. But, will there be one this summer? 505 Games, publisher of the game, has taken this opportunity to host its own live event. The livestream will be hosted by Patrice Bouedibela of MTV. It promises a 60-minute look into both new and existing titles and an opportunity to meet the key developers behind each title.

The press release says: "The showcase will provide gamers the latest insight into the range of upcoming games that 505 is proudly to publish, offering never before-seen content and a brand new reveal by a cult developers plus in-depth interviews avec some of the development team responsible." The event airs from 6AM PT/ 2PM BST on 17 May 2022.

505 Games manages many titles, including heavy-hitters like Control and smaller releases like Eiyuden Chrono: Rising. Its lineup is not very extensive at the moment, so it will be interesting to see how it spends its time on its livestream. However, we would keep expectations low - it's better to be surprised than not.

It's been ongoing for a while, but now the community is paying more attention to Team Fortress 2's bot problems. Robin Atkin Downes, the TF2 voice actor, has spoken out in support of the game's issues and will likely speak with Valve.

SquimJim, a Team Fortress 2 player, posted a video (via IGN which calls TF2 "literally inaccessible now") complaining about the nearly two-plus-year-old bot problem that the long-running FPS games are suffering from - which some suspect could have been linked to the 2020 leak of TF2’s source code - and urging the community to press Valve to do something about it.

It seems that even Team Fortress 2's voice actor are protesting the issue. Concerned players were also pinging Robin Atkin Downes – who, among other roles, voices the Medic in TF2 as well as Kazuhira Miller of Metal Gear Solid 5 - who now supports them.

Downes assures players that "I listen to you", but reminds them that he hasn't worked on the game. He adds, "I will do my best to help you", and promises to contact Valve this week "to ask them about this."

The community waits with bated breath for Valve's response. However, the problem is likely to get worse and Steam quiz games won't fix it.

The best gaming motherboard is the basis of your PC build. It's the root from which the rest of your components rise, and as an integral part of your gaming PC build, it determines the rest of the components that go into it. That includes everything from your wireless connectivity, overclocking capability, how much storage, how many and USB devices you can have connected to your PC. You want to choose the right one so that you won't have to dismantle everything later.

There may not be a massive difference between motherboards packing the same chipset when it comes to performance, but there are several features that matter just as much. Do you want to be able to overclock your CPU? Do you need high-performance RAM support? Do you need a whole wall of USB ports? These are just some of the things you should consider when getting ready to purchase a motherboard.

The best gaming motherboards also will also mean some level of future-proofing, as much as this ever-changing world will allow. That could mean a socket or chipset that can support the top-end processors, such as Intel's Z690 chipset and its Alder Lake chips, or one that has a wealth of CPU support, like AMD's X570 chipset and its enduring AM4 socket. 

We've tested a bunch of both AMD and Intel motherboards over the past year, from Mini-ITX to ATX, so you can make an informed decision on which one is going to work best for you. Note that we're looking at B660 motherboards right now, and will update this list shortly to take onboard Intel's more affordable offering for its Alder Lake chips.

Best Intel Z690 motherboard



1. Gigabyte Z690 Aorus Pro

The best Z690 board for DDR5 at a price that won't kill your bank balance

Specifications
CPU support: Intel 12th GenSocket: LGA 1700Size: ATXMemory support: 4x DIMM, up to 128GB, DDR5-6400 (OC)Expansion slots: 1x PCIe 5.0 x16, 2x PCIe 4.0 x16 (running at x4)Video ports: 1x DisplayPort 1.4USB: Up to 2x USB 3.2 Gen2x2, 4x USB 3.2 Gen 2, 6x USB 3.1 Gen 1, 8x USB 2.0Storage: 4x M.2, 6x SATA 6GbpsNetwork: Intel Wi-Fi 6; Intel i225V 2.5G LAN

It was almost inevitable that the top-end chipset for Intel's next-gen Alder Lake CPUs would end up being super-expensive. That is compounded by the premium attached to anything which mentions DDR5, but Gigabyte's Z690 Aorus Pro is almost bucking that trend by offering a rounded feature set along with DDR5 support. Sure, in the last CPU generation $300+ was seen as high-end, but for the 12th Gen platform that's positively mid-range.

There are cheaper DDR4 boards around—Gigabyte also makes an Aorus Pro in DDR4 flavor, too, though that's not sold in the US or EU—but if you want to get the absolute most out of the new Intel platform you want DDR5. Well, when you can actually buy some anyway...

Gigabyte has been smart about the way it's specced out the Aorus Pro. By limiting it to 'just' Wi-Fi 6 wireless and 2.5G Intel wired networking connections, and eschewing such unnecessary luxuries as Thunderbolt 4 or another M.2 slot, it has managed to keep the price at least relatively sensible.

And it's a great performer, too, delivering system and gaming performance easily on par with the far more expensive boards we've also tested. The BIOS is maturing regularly as well, which makes us completely confident in recommending the Gigabyte board as our pick of the Z690 bunch.

Only three M.2 slotsLike all high-end Z690 boards, it’s expensive

When ASRock first launched its Taichi brand, we were impressed with its less-is-more design approach. It offered a good feature set and value for money without the excessive RGB overload that was common to gaming boards a few years ago. The brand has now evolved into a genuinely high end one. The yet-to-be-seen Aqua is the company’s top model, but with its expected limited-edition nature and likely stratospheric price, the Taichi will essentially be ASRock's premium Z690 motherboard. And that's not a bad place to be.

The look of the board is definitely unique, and though looks are in the eye of the beholder, for me the Taichi’s cyberpunk theme, with its copper coloring, looks great. You get a good splash of RGB and there are cogs above the I/O that actually move. It looks expensive. If you use Razer products, there’s a Razer themed Z690 Taichi for easy integration into the Chroma ecosystem, too.

Notably, the Taichi did well at gaming tests, often leading the pack. Though 1 fps here or there isn’t significant, it’s better to lead than trail. The board was happy to run DDR5-6400 memory, something not all Z690s could do with our pre-release testing. This indicates a nice level of maturity, though as is often the case with a brand-new platform and standard, there is surely some refinement to come.

The Taichi’s great looks, solid performance, and strong feature list make it a serious competitor in its top-end price range.

This is a gaming motherboard positioned as an entry-level option for anyone looking to run Rocket Lake. Asus has always positioned its TUF products as reliable options, with decent pricing and a more basic feature set. Combined it means this is a good affordable option for someone after a no-fuss, solid, and reliable system. And given the pricing of many Z590 motherboards, that makes for a welcome change.

The TUF Z590 Plus features a subtle design with a particularly nice white font. You get a couple of little splashes of RGB around the right side too. It’s a nice look. There are three M.2 slots with the topmost one supporting PCIe 4.0. The two at the bottom are contained under a single heatsink. Also, note the vertical SATA ports that sticklers for cable management might find objectionable. There are a further two regular horizontal ports adjacent to the heatsink. You get six fan headers and two addressable RGB headers too. 

This is a board for anyone who would prefer to allocate money towards a faster GPU or larger SSD instead of paying through the nose for 10Gb LAN or expensive add-in cards. And I can totally get on board with that. Bang for buck and the true essentials are the name of the game here. If you’re on a budget, it’s definitely one to look out for.

Only really for overclockersInevitably expensive

Overclocking focused motherboards have made a proper comeback. All the major manufacturers have Z590 boards specifically designed for serious overclocking. The dual memory slot design, all those buttons and switches, a monstrous VRM, and a unique layout are all aimed at making life easier for overclockers. Then there’s a comprehensive BIOS with extensive tweaking options. It’s clear that this isn’t a regular board with a fancy sticker slapped on it.

The idea behind having only two memory slots instead of four is to minimize trace complexity and bring the slots closer to the CPU. This helps reduce latency and allows for a little more performance headroom compared to a four-slot design. The primary PCIe slot is not the topmost one either, it’s the one below it. This is another choice to aid overclockers who use LN2 cool a GPU by allowing extra room for pots and insulation.

The Gigabyte Z590 Aorus Tachyon won’t magically add frequency to your CPU and memory. What it will do is help you to extract the maximum efficiency out of your system, no matter what cooling you’re using. An enthusiast who loves to tweak, spending time reducing latency and tweaking sub-timings, or a gamer dedicated to finding a few extra FPS will enjoy peace of mind knowing you’ve got a board that’s specifically designed to take whatever punishment you throw at it.

If you want the best, most fully-featured Intel Comet Lake motherboard, then I'm afraid you're going to have to pay for it. And pay through the nose if Asus' Z490 Maximus XII Extreme is anything to go by. It is, as the name suggests, extreme, packing in a variety of luxurious and convenient extras (a frickin' screwdriver with interchangeable heads for one), and it's also one of the highest performing Z490 boards we've tested.

But it only really makes sense if you're buying a K-series Core i9 and genuinely intend to overclock the nuts off it. The Maximus XII will allow you to get the highest clock speed out of your 10900K and won't turn it into a pile of molten slag while you're at it. The MSI Z490 Godlike is actually the fastest Z490 outright at stock speeds, but I'd rather have the ROG board in my camp if I'm going down the OC route.

Obviously, it's only for the very highest of high-end PC builds; however, the $750 price tag means you could actually build a respectable full gaming PC for the price of this single motherboard. It's an aspirational Z490 motherboard and arguably the best gaming motherboard for Comet Lake overclocking, but I'll concede it's not a particularly realistic purchase for most of us.

Reasons to avoid

The sparse back panel and missing OLED displays will tell you we're back into normal motherboard territory with this MSI offering. The rarified air of the ultra-enthusiast ROG board up top might make one giddy, but the Z490 Gaming Carbon will bring us back down to earth without a bump. Sure, you're never going to get the same level of luxury feature list as you'll find with either the Maximus XII or MSI's own Godlike boards, but when it comes to the nuts and bolts of pure performance, it's right up there. 

Where it matters, in the gaming performance stakes, there's practically nothing between any of the Z490 boards we've tested, and it's only ever a little behind when it comes to the actual CPU performance in productivity apps. However, when it comes to overclocking, the MPG Z490 Gaming Carbon WiFi inevitably can't compare to the big boys, with our 10900K running at its peak.

The power componentry and cooling aren't enough to stop the thirsty CPU from throttling when it's pushed to its 5.3GHz all-core maximum. But, while that might mean it's not the board you'd choose for an overclocked Core i9 machine, that's a tiny niche of gamers, and for either i5 or i7 CPUs, the MSI Gaming Carbon is still a quality home for your Comet Lake CPU.

Grabbing one of the best Z490 motherboards might be appealing to your inner elitist, but the sticker price shock is definitely a problem. Sure, it would be nice to have 10Gb LAN, seven M.2 slots, or quad GPU support, but who really needs all that stuff? Most of us will be perfectly happy with a quality B460 motherboard, such as the MSI MAG B460M Mortar WiFi. 

If you can put up with the memory speed limitation and have no intention of overclocking (well, with a K-series CPU anyway), then this is the kind of board that should be on your PC building wishlist. It ticks most of the important boxes, and at $150, it’s reasonably priced, though the competition is tough with many premium B460 motherboards priced in this range.

It’s got a strong VRM configuration, 2.5Gb LAN, Wi-Fi 6, and adequate, if not particularly outstanding, I/O. Pairing it with a 65W non-K processor and having a crack at pseudo overclocking is definitely worth the minimal efforts too. If you can live with the maximum DDR4-2666 speed, something like an Intel Core i5 10600 and B460M Mortar, paired with a decent mid-range GPU, would deliver a quality, affordable gaming combo.

The ASRock B460 Steel Legend is an awesomely named mid-range B460 entry. At $150, it’s what we’d call a mid-range B460 board. A look over the specs indicates that your cash is well spent on some important areas. You get a pair of heatsink-covered M.2 slots, an e-key M.2 slot for an optional Wi-Fi card, a front USB Type-C header, and a good helping of RGB onboard.

The increased power demands of 10th generation CPUs mean motherboards generally have to include improved VRM designs, and on that front, the B460 Steel Legend is well equipped. It includes a 9+1 phase VRM powered by a single 8-Pin EPS connector. Each stage can deliver up to 60A. Bear in mind that overclocking is not allowed on B460 motherboards, so the VRM will not see extreme loads as you might get with an all-core overclocked Intel Core i9 10900K. 

The ASRock B460 Steel legend will appeal to buyers who aren’t so interested in bells and whistles but want a solid ATX board capable of powering any 10th Gen CPU without bursting into flames. Integrated Wi-Fi would have been a nice cherry on top for the price, and that's arguably one of the reasons we prefer the MSI B460M Mortar. But the ASRock B460 Steel legend is still a highly competitive offering and comes highly recommended by us. It shows its steel, one might say. If it had Wi-Fi, we might even have said it was legendary.

Asus' ROG Crosshair VIII Dark Hero wants to be the last AM4 motherboard you'll ever need. But what is it that makes a great motherboard? Features are important, as is a stable and refined BIOS, value for money, a good design, but sometimes intangible. Sometimes it's that the damn thing works. 

Motherboard testing is often one of the most painful things a tech journalist has to do. With some boards, you have to fight it to get it to do what you want, or expect it to, or have to or crank up some voltage setting to a level you don’t really want to, but the Dark Hero just boots the first time, even as we played with the memory clocks and timings and the Infinity Fabric. 

The Crosshair VIII Dark Hero might not be the best AM4 motherboard ever made, we’d have to review a few hundred others to make that claim, but it’s an easy claim to make that the Dark Hero is certainly one of the best AM4 motherboards we've ever used. Time and months of user feedback will determine if the Dark Hero assumes a position as one of the truly legendary ROG motherboards, but we wouldn’t bet against that happening.

Reasons to avoid
Too few USB ports

The MSI MPG X570 represents an amalgamation of bleeding-edge motherboard tech built to get the most out of AMD's 3rd gen Ryzen CPUs. It has four DIMM slots that can handle speeds up to 4,400Mhz and two M.2 slots sporting PCIe 4.0.

The rear I/O panel features seven USB Type-A ports for peripherals and a single USB Type-C port for connectivity and high-speed data transfer. There are headers for the included Wi-Fi antenna to help with wireless connectivity, as well as a gigabit ethernet port. The MPG X570 supports Wi-Fi 6, and while that does necessitate a Wi-Fi 6 compatible router, it's backward compatible with other Wi-Fi standards and gives the potential for a speed boost down the line. Also of note is the HDMI port, which many X570 boards omit (not that we'd really recommend using an AMD APU with integrated graphics in a high-end board like this).

The MPG X570 features enough compatibility to get the most out of your hardware now and in the future, provided you're willing to pay a premium for it. While it's certainly an excellent mobo, if you aren't already committed to a shopping list of top-of-the-line components now or shortly, you may want to consider a slightly less expensive board for your needs.

Reasons to avoid
Single 2.5G LAN only5G would be nice

Despite the X570 chipset showing its age, Gigabyte's X570S Aorus Master feels like an old dog that's learned some new tricks. The fact that it comes with four M.2 slots alone is impressive along with a decent heatsink. Really the cooling all around gets a thumbs up from us. The finned VRM heatsinks add a ton of surface area. 

Our only real knock against the Aorus Master is that it only offers a single 2.5G LAN and lacks 5G which is a bit a bummer. That being said it's still one of the better AMD motherboards out there. I'm a sucker for a motherboard with a ton of USB ports this mobo has SO many. 

The Aorus Master is still keeping AM4 and X570 relevant thanks to its many USB ports and storage options. Even at $400, it's got enough features (and looks good to boot) to justify the higher price point.

Sure, the Asus ROG Strix B550-E is the same price as plenty of X570 motherboards; in fact, it pretty much matches our favorite of AMD's top-end boards, the MSI MPG X570 Gaming Pro Carbon. But it's a premium motherboard, with all the trappings you'd expect from Asus' Republic of Gamers stables, such as 14+2 power stage, M.2 heatsinks, and pre-installed backplates. You also get Wi-Fi 6 wireless networking as well as Intel 2.5Gb ethernet too. And RGB LEDs, of course.

Performance is typically good for a high-end Asus board, matching X570 motherboards for gaming performance without issue. That said, of the B550 boards we've tested, it's the far more affordable MSI board that actually comes out top in our straight performance testing. But the Asus can overclock far better, even if it does chew up more raw power from the plug on the whole.

The Asus ROG Strix B550-E Gaming is the whole package then, and right now is our all-around pick for the best B550 motherboard. Though that still feels like a tough recommendation when X570 boards are the same price…

When it comes to gaming performance above all else, MSI's micro-ATX MAG B550M Mortar is your best bet for an affordable next-gen Ryzen machine. It comes in around the $160 mark, making it cheaper than a great many X570 and other B550 motherboards on the market right now. 

The gaming frame rates of the MSI B550 Mortar put it above the rest of the B550 crew we've tested so far, and indeed its straight CPU performance puts it up there with some of the best X570s. That bodes well if you're looking for an affordable home for your AMD Zen 3 CPU of the future; this B550 has a great chance to ensure it performs to its fullest stock-clocked potential without breaking the bank.

But you will be missing out on extra PCIe 4.0 M.2 and x16 graphics slots if those extras mean a lot to you. You can also opt to ditch wireless networking, depending on whether you pick the straight Mortar or the more expensive Mortar Wi-Fi version. The 8+2+1 power phase design is arguably a more unwelcome miss, however, as that results in a board that will not spark any overclocking joy in your heart. But, as an affordable gaming board without OC pretensions, it's a great shout.

Weak audioLimited function due to price and size

AMD's budget Ryzen motherboard chipset, the A520, has largely slipped under the radar. While B350 and B450 motherboards were mostly regarded as entry-level, A320 was strictly seen as the resolutely low end. 

The introduction of B550 motherboards, and their associated move upward in price, left a big hole in the sub-$100 market. Enter A520. If you’re on a tighter budget and don’t care about PCIe 4.0 or the overclocking support offered by B550, then the A520 motherboards might be exactly what you need. There’s cheap, and there’s really cheap, but a decent A520 board can more or less do everything a board at double the price can. 

This board supports AMD Ryzen 5000 series CPUs and, almost as importantly, Ryzen 4000 series APUs. Combine a Zen 3 CPU with a motherboard such as this ASRock A520M ITX/ac, and you’ll be able to build an affordable and compact system that can beat any Intel chip in any workload.

The ASRock A520M's audio is a bit of a letdown, but that’s something that budget boards often compromise on. A gamer listening to compressed audio assets in-game probably won’t be any less immersed. The little ASRock A520M ITX/ac has it where it counts and will serve you well at the heart of a budget gaming system. It benefits from the strengths of the Ryzen platform and adds some future-proofing into the mix. ITX fans looking for a capable budget AMD Ryzen option should definitely have this one on their shortlist.

AMD's A520 motherboard chipset might not make for the sexiest of PC components, that’s for sure. You probably wouldn’t buy one to take place at the heart of your water-cooled build or Nvidia RTX 3090 gaming system. When you look at the chipset itself, it doesn’t really miss out in terms of real-world essential features. There’s no PCIe 4.0, but no Intel systems have it either, not until Rocket Lake next year.

The Gigabyte A520 Aorus Elite is a high-end A520 board, which might seem oxymoronic, but if you didn’t know what it was, you’d be forgiven for assuming it was more of a mid-range board and not a $90 bargain. It’s even got two RGB headers and a further two ARGB headers. About the only thing it really lacks is Wi-Fi, but then do you really expect to have Wi-Fi at this price? 

Gigabyte deserves credit for including audio built around the ALC1200 codec. Usually, this is reserved for use with more expensive motherboards. If you’re on a budget, this Gigabyte A520 Aorus Elite is well worth a look. It leaves Intel's budget B460 boards looking weak in comparison, plus you get the benefit of next-generation Ryzen compatibility. Is it for everyone? No, but the Gigabyte A520 Aorus Elite, unlike almost all preceding A320 boards, definitely does not mean cheap and nasty.

Gaming motherboard FAQ

What's the most important factor in buying a motherboard?

You need to know which processor you want to build your new rig around. Are you firmly tying yourself to the mast of the good ship Intel, with its impressive Alder Lake CPUs? Or are you going to continue flying the AMD flag proudly? Once you've picked your chip, it's down to features, overclocking intentions, and your budget.

What really matters when buying a motherboard?

Other than knowing which processor you're going to be fitting, size matters when picking up a motherboard. If you're building out a standard ATX scale gaming PC, then pretty much any motherboard is open to your whims, but if you want to go for a smaller chassis, either Micro ATX or Mini ITX, then you'll need a corresponding mobo. 

That doesn't necessarily mean sacrificing performance or key features anymore. A single PCIe slot is more than enough for today's SLI/CrossFire-less GPU world, and even some Mini ITX boards will come with multiple M.2 SSD slots.

The scale will impact pricing, however. Interestingly Micro ATX boards are often the most affordable, while Mini ITX options can be the most expensive. We've picked our top two favorite gaming motherboards for each of the main Intel and AMD chipsets to give you the best options around.

Can I overclock on any motherboard?

No. There are absolutely restrictions in place to stop that, especially on the Intel side. It has opened up memory overclocking across its 500-series chipsets, but still, the Z590 is your only chance of overclocking the latest Rocket Lake K-series CPUs. But don't worry, they don't overclock very well.

AMD is more generous, allowing all its CPUs and most of its motherboard chipsets. Basically, if you make sure not to go for the cheapest Ryzen board, one with an 'A' at the front of its nomenclature, then you're good to tweak. Though again, there really are limited returns.

Jargon buster - motherboard terminology

ATX, Micro-ATX, Mini-ITX

The most common form factors/sizes of a motherboard from largest to smallest, which beyond physical dimensions determines which cases it'll fit into and (broadly) how many expansion slots are available. There are other, less common form factors (XL-ATX, HPTX, etc.), but these three are the most ubiquitous consumer form factors.

USB Header

A connector on the motherboard that allows you to run a cable to the case to add additional USB ports, typically on the front panel (though some cases provide top or rear panel slots as well). 

BIOS/UEFI

Basic Input/Output System/Unified Extensible Firmware Interface connects the hardware and software that lives on the board (the firmware) to the operating system (OS, such as Windows or Linux). They allow you to adjust system-level settings, such as fan speed or RAM frequency. UEFI has largely replaced the older BIOS standard.

Expansion Slots (PCIe Slots)

Peripheral Component Interconnect Express slots on the motherboard are designed to accommodate add-in cards like graphics cards, SSD cards, dedicated sound cards, etc. PCIe slots are measured in both length (x16, x8, x4, x1) as well as by the number of data transmission lanes they provide (x16, x8, x4, x1). It's possible for an x16 slot to only provide 8 lanes of data, for instance, which means the maximum possible data transfer rate is halved (though in many cases, because PCIe provides such a high ceiling for transfer speeds, a lower number of lanes doesn't make a tremendous difference).

DIMM Slots

Dual In-Line Memory Module slots, the slots on a motherboard where your RAM lives. The number of total slots contributes to the maximum amount of RAM your system can handle, paired with the chipset and OS. 

Chipset

The logic allows the various parts of a motherboard to talk to each other. The chipset determines which processor generations a motherboard is compatible with and what add-in cards can be used.

SATA Ports

Serial Advanced Technology Attachment ports, an interface for connecting storage devices/drives to a motherboard (HDDs, SSDs, optical drives, etc.). The number of physical ports on your board, combined with ports for NVMe storage, will determine the total number of storage drives you can have connected to your PC at any time.

" } ["summary"]=> string(154) " The best gaming motherboard is the basis of your PC build. It's the root from which the rest of your components rise, and as an integral part of your " ["atom_content"]=> string(39127) "



The best gaming motherboard is the basis of your PC build. It's the root from which the rest of your components rise, and as an integral part of your gaming PC build, it determines the rest of the components that go into it. That includes everything from your wireless connectivity, overclocking capability, how much storage, how many and USB devices you can have connected to your PC. You want to choose the right one so that you won't have to dismantle everything later.

There may not be a massive difference between motherboards packing the same chipset when it comes to performance, but there are several features that matter just as much. Do you want to be able to overclock your CPU? Do you need high-performance RAM support? Do you need a whole wall of USB ports? These are just some of the things you should consider when getting ready to purchase a motherboard.

The best gaming motherboards also will also mean some level of future-proofing, as much as this ever-changing world will allow. That could mean a socket or chipset that can support the top-end processors, such as Intel's Z690 chipset and its Alder Lake chips, or one that has a wealth of CPU support, like AMD's X570 chipset and its enduring AM4 socket. 

We've tested a bunch of both AMD and Intel motherboards over the past year, from Mini-ITX to ATX, so you can make an informed decision on which one is going to work best for you. Note that we're looking at B660 motherboards right now, and will update this list shortly to take onboard Intel's more affordable offering for its Alder Lake chips.

It was almost inevitable that the top-end chipset for Intel's next-gen Alder Lake CPUs would end up being super-expensive. That is compounded by the premium attached to anything which mentions DDR5, but Gigabyte's Z690 Aorus Pro is almost bucking that trend by offering a rounded feature set along with DDR5 support. Sure, in the last CPU generation $300+ was seen as high-end, but for the 12th Gen platform that's positively mid-range.

There are cheaper DDR4 boards around—Gigabyte also makes an Aorus Pro in DDR4 flavor, too, though that's not sold in the US or EU—but if you want to get the absolute most out of the new Intel platform you want DDR5. Well, when you can actually buy some anyway...

Gigabyte has been smart about the way it's specced out the Aorus Pro. By limiting it to 'just' Wi-Fi 6 wireless and 2.5G Intel wired networking connections, and eschewing such unnecessary luxuries as Thunderbolt 4 or another M.2 slot, it has managed to keep the price at least relatively sensible.

And it's a great performer, too, delivering system and gaming performance easily on par with the far more expensive boards we've also tested. The BIOS is maturing regularly as well, which makes us completely confident in recommending the Gigabyte board as our pick of the Z690 bunch.

When ASRock first launched its Taichi brand, we were impressed with its less-is-more design approach. It offered a good feature set and value for money without the excessive RGB overload that was common to gaming boards a few years ago. The brand has now evolved into a genuinely high end one. The yet-to-be-seen Aqua is the company’s top model, but with its expected limited-edition nature and likely stratospheric price, the Taichi will essentially be ASRock's premium Z690 motherboard. And that's not a bad place to be.

The look of the board is definitely unique, and though looks are in the eye of the beholder, for me the Taichi’s cyberpunk theme, with its copper coloring, looks great. You get a good splash of RGB and there are cogs above the I/O that actually move. It looks expensive. If you use Razer products, there’s a Razer themed Z690 Taichi for easy integration into the Chroma ecosystem, too.

Notably, the Taichi did well at gaming tests, often leading the pack. Though 1 fps here or there isn’t significant, it’s better to lead than trail. The board was happy to run DDR5-6400 memory, something not all Z690s could do with our pre-release testing. This indicates a nice level of maturity, though as is often the case with a brand-new platform and standard, there is surely some refinement to come.

The Taichi’s great looks, solid performance, and strong feature list make it a serious competitor in its top-end price range.

This is a gaming motherboard positioned as an entry-level option for anyone looking to run Rocket Lake. Asus has always positioned its TUF products as reliable options, with decent pricing and a more basic feature set. Combined it means this is a good affordable option for someone after a no-fuss, solid, and reliable system. And given the pricing of many Z590 motherboards, that makes for a welcome change.

The TUF Z590 Plus features a subtle design with a particularly nice white font. You get a couple of little splashes of RGB around the right side too. It’s a nice look. There are three M.2 slots with the topmost one supporting PCIe 4.0. The two at the bottom are contained under a single heatsink. Also, note the vertical SATA ports that sticklers for cable management might find objectionable. There are a further two regular horizontal ports adjacent to the heatsink. You get six fan headers and two addressable RGB headers too. 

This is a board for anyone who would prefer to allocate money towards a faster GPU or larger SSD instead of paying through the nose for 10Gb LAN or expensive add-in cards. And I can totally get on board with that. Bang for buck and the true essentials are the name of the game here. If you’re on a budget, it’s definitely one to look out for.

Only really for overclockersInevitably expensive

Overclocking focused motherboards have made a proper comeback. All the major manufacturers have Z590 boards specifically designed for serious overclocking. The dual memory slot design, all those buttons and switches, a monstrous VRM, and a unique layout are all aimed at making life easier for overclockers. Then there’s a comprehensive BIOS with extensive tweaking options. It’s clear that this isn’t a regular board with a fancy sticker slapped on it.

The idea behind having only two memory slots instead of four is to minimize trace complexity and bring the slots closer to the CPU. This helps reduce latency and allows for a little more performance headroom compared to a four-slot design. The primary PCIe slot is not the topmost one either, it’s the one below it. This is another choice to aid overclockers who use LN2 cool a GPU by allowing extra room for pots and insulation.

The Gigabyte Z590 Aorus Tachyon won’t magically add frequency to your CPU and memory. What it will do is help you to extract the maximum efficiency out of your system, no matter what cooling you’re using. An enthusiast who loves to tweak, spending time reducing latency and tweaking sub-timings, or a gamer dedicated to finding a few extra FPS will enjoy peace of mind knowing you’ve got a board that’s specifically designed to take whatever punishment you throw at it.

If you want the best, most fully-featured Intel Comet Lake motherboard, then I'm afraid you're going to have to pay for it. And pay through the nose if Asus' Z490 Maximus XII Extreme is anything to go by. It is, as the name suggests, extreme, packing in a variety of luxurious and convenient extras (a frickin' screwdriver with interchangeable heads for one), and it's also one of the highest performing Z490 boards we've tested.

But it only really makes sense if you're buying a K-series Core i9 and genuinely intend to overclock the nuts off it. The Maximus XII will allow you to get the highest clock speed out of your 10900K and won't turn it into a pile of molten slag while you're at it. The MSI Z490 Godlike is actually the fastest Z490 outright at stock speeds, but I'd rather have the ROG board in my camp if I'm going down the OC route.

Obviously, it's only for the very highest of high-end PC builds; however, the $750 price tag means you could actually build a respectable full gaming PC for the price of this single motherboard. It's an aspirational Z490 motherboard and arguably the best gaming motherboard for Comet Lake overclocking, but I'll concede it's not a particularly realistic purchase for most of us.

Reasons to avoid
Runs hot

The sparse back panel and missing OLED displays will tell you we're back into normal motherboard territory with this MSI offering. The rarified air of the ultra-enthusiast ROG board up top might make one giddy, but the Z490 Gaming Carbon will bring us back down to earth without a bump. Sure, you're never going to get the same level of luxury feature list as you'll find with either the Maximus XII or MSI's own Godlike boards, but when it comes to the nuts and bolts of pure performance, it's right up there. 

Where it matters, in the gaming performance stakes, there's practically nothing between any of the Z490 boards we've tested, and it's only ever a little behind when it comes to the actual CPU performance in productivity apps. However, when it comes to overclocking, the MPG Z490 Gaming Carbon WiFi inevitably can't compare to the big boys, with our 10900K running at its peak.

The power componentry and cooling aren't enough to stop the thirsty CPU from throttling when it's pushed to its 5.3GHz all-core maximum. But, while that might mean it's not the board you'd choose for an overclocked Core i9 machine, that's a tiny niche of gamers, and for either i5 or i7 CPUs, the MSI Gaming Carbon is still a quality home for your Comet Lake CPU.

Grabbing one of the best Z490 motherboards might be appealing to your inner elitist, but the sticker price shock is definitely a problem. Sure, it would be nice to have 10Gb LAN, seven M.2 slots, or quad GPU support, but who really needs all that stuff? Most of us will be perfectly happy with a quality B460 motherboard, such as the MSI MAG B460M Mortar WiFi. 

If you can put up with the memory speed limitation and have no intention of overclocking (well, with a K-series CPU anyway), then this is the kind of board that should be on your PC building wishlist. It ticks most of the important boxes, and at $150, it’s reasonably priced, though the competition is tough with many premium B460 motherboards priced in this range.

It’s got a strong VRM configuration, 2.5Gb LAN, Wi-Fi 6, and adequate, if not particularly outstanding, I/O. Pairing it with a 65W non-K processor and having a crack at pseudo overclocking is definitely worth the minimal efforts too. If you can live with the maximum DDR4-2666 speed, something like an Intel Core i5 10600 and B460M Mortar, paired with a decent mid-range GPU, would deliver a quality, affordable gaming combo.

The ASRock B460 Steel Legend is an awesomely named mid-range B460 entry. At $150, it’s what we’d call a mid-range B460 board. A look over the specs indicates that your cash is well spent on some important areas. You get a pair of heatsink-covered M.2 slots, an e-key M.2 slot for an optional Wi-Fi card, a front USB Type-C header, and a good helping of RGB onboard.

The increased power demands of 10th generation CPUs mean motherboards generally have to include improved VRM designs, and on that front, the B460 Steel Legend is well equipped. It includes a 9+1 phase VRM powered by a single 8-Pin EPS connector. Each stage can deliver up to 60A. Bear in mind that overclocking is not allowed on B460 motherboards, so the VRM will not see extreme loads as you might get with an all-core overclocked Intel Core i9 10900K. 

The ASRock B460 Steel legend will appeal to buyers who aren’t so interested in bells and whistles but want a solid ATX board capable of powering any 10th Gen CPU without bursting into flames. Integrated Wi-Fi would have been a nice cherry on top for the price, and that's arguably one of the reasons we prefer the MSI B460M Mortar. But the ASRock B460 Steel legend is still a highly competitive offering and comes highly recommended by us. It shows its steel, one might say. If it had Wi-Fi, we might even have said it was legendary.

Asus' ROG Crosshair VIII Dark Hero wants to be the last AM4 motherboard you'll ever need. But what is it that makes a great motherboard? Features are important, as is a stable and refined BIOS, value for money, a good design, but sometimes intangible. Sometimes it's that the damn thing works. 

Motherboard testing is often one of the most painful things a tech journalist has to do. With some boards, you have to fight it to get it to do what you want, or expect it to, or have to or crank up some voltage setting to a level you don’t really want to, but the Dark Hero just boots the first time, even as we played with the memory clocks and timings and the Infinity Fabric. 

The Crosshair VIII Dark Hero might not be the best AM4 motherboard ever made, we’d have to review a few hundred others to make that claim, but it’s an easy claim to make that the Dark Hero is certainly one of the best AM4 motherboards we've ever used. Time and months of user feedback will determine if the Dark Hero assumes a position as one of the truly legendary ROG motherboards, but we wouldn’t bet against that happening.

Reasons to buy
2 PCIe 4.0 M.2 SlotsWi-Fi 6 Compatible
Reasons to avoid
Too few USB ports

The MSI MPG X570 represents an amalgamation of bleeding-edge motherboard tech built to get the most out of AMD's 3rd gen Ryzen CPUs. It has four DIMM slots that can handle speeds up to 4,400Mhz and two M.2 slots sporting PCIe 4.0.

The rear I/O panel features seven USB Type-A ports for peripherals and a single USB Type-C port for connectivity and high-speed data transfer. There are headers for the included Wi-Fi antenna to help with wireless connectivity, as well as a gigabit ethernet port. The MPG X570 supports Wi-Fi 6, and while that does necessitate a Wi-Fi 6 compatible router, it's backward compatible with other Wi-Fi standards and gives the potential for a speed boost down the line. Also of note is the HDMI port, which many X570 boards omit (not that we'd really recommend using an AMD APU with integrated graphics in a high-end board like this).

The MPG X570 features enough compatibility to get the most out of your hardware now and in the future, provided you're willing to pay a premium for it. While it's certainly an excellent mobo, if you aren't already committed to a shopping list of top-of-the-line components now or shortly, you may want to consider a slightly less expensive board for your needs.

Despite the X570 chipset showing its age, Gigabyte's X570S Aorus Master feels like an old dog that's learned some new tricks. The fact that it comes with four M.2 slots alone is impressive along with a decent heatsink. Really the cooling all around gets a thumbs up from us. The finned VRM heatsinks add a ton of surface area. 

Our only real knock against the Aorus Master is that it only offers a single 2.5G LAN and lacks 5G which is a bit a bummer. That being said it's still one of the better AMD motherboards out there. I'm a sucker for a motherboard with a ton of USB ports this mobo has SO many. 

The Aorus Master is still keeping AM4 and X570 relevant thanks to its many USB ports and storage options. Even at $400, it's got enough features (and looks good to boot) to justify the higher price point.

Sure, the Asus ROG Strix B550-E is the same price as plenty of X570 motherboards; in fact, it pretty much matches our favorite of AMD's top-end boards, the MSI MPG X570 Gaming Pro Carbon. But it's a premium motherboard, with all the trappings you'd expect from Asus' Republic of Gamers stables, such as 14+2 power stage, M.2 heatsinks, and pre-installed backplates. You also get Wi-Fi 6 wireless networking as well as Intel 2.5Gb ethernet too. And RGB LEDs, of course.

Performance is typically good for a high-end Asus board, matching X570 motherboards for gaming performance without issue. That said, of the B550 boards we've tested, it's the far more affordable MSI board that actually comes out top in our straight performance testing. But the Asus can overclock far better, even if it does chew up more raw power from the plug on the whole.

The Asus ROG Strix B550-E Gaming is the whole package then, and right now is our all-around pick for the best B550 motherboard. Though that still feels like a tough recommendation when X570 boards are the same price…

When it comes to gaming performance above all else, MSI's micro-ATX MAG B550M Mortar is your best bet for an affordable next-gen Ryzen machine. It comes in around the $160 mark, making it cheaper than a great many X570 and other B550 motherboards on the market right now. 

The gaming frame rates of the MSI B550 Mortar put it above the rest of the B550 crew we've tested so far, and indeed its straight CPU performance puts it up there with some of the best X570s. That bodes well if you're looking for an affordable home for your AMD Zen 3 CPU of the future; this B550 has a great chance to ensure it performs to its fullest stock-clocked potential without breaking the bank.

But you will be missing out on extra PCIe 4.0 M.2 and x16 graphics slots if those extras mean a lot to you. You can also opt to ditch wireless networking, depending on whether you pick the straight Mortar or the more expensive Mortar Wi-Fi version. The 8+2+1 power phase design is arguably a more unwelcome miss, however, as that results in a board that will not spark any overclocking joy in your heart. But, as an affordable gaming board without OC pretensions, it's a great shout.

Weak audioLimited function due to price and size

AMD's budget Ryzen motherboard chipset, the A520, has largely slipped under the radar. While B350 and B450 motherboards were mostly regarded as entry-level, A320 was strictly seen as the resolutely low end. 

The introduction of B550 motherboards, and their associated move upward in price, left a big hole in the sub-$100 market. Enter A520. If you’re on a tighter budget and don’t care about PCIe 4.0 or the overclocking support offered by B550, then the A520 motherboards might be exactly what you need. There’s cheap, and there’s really cheap, but a decent A520 board can more or less do everything a board at double the price can. 

This board supports AMD Ryzen 5000 series CPUs and, almost as importantly, Ryzen 4000 series APUs. Combine a Zen 3 CPU with a motherboard such as this ASRock A520M ITX/ac, and you’ll be able to build an affordable and compact system that can beat any Intel chip in any workload.

The ASRock A520M's audio is a bit of a letdown, but that’s something that budget boards often compromise on. A gamer listening to compressed audio assets in-game probably won’t be any less immersed. The little ASRock A520M ITX/ac has it where it counts and will serve you well at the heart of a budget gaming system. It benefits from the strengths of the Ryzen platform and adds some future-proofing into the mix. ITX fans looking for a capable budget AMD Ryzen option should definitely have this one on their shortlist.

AMD's A520 motherboard chipset might not make for the sexiest of PC components, that’s for sure. You probably wouldn’t buy one to take place at the heart of your water-cooled build or Nvidia RTX 3090 gaming system. When you look at the chipset itself, it doesn’t really miss out in terms of real-world essential features. There’s no PCIe 4.0, but no Intel systems have it either, not until Rocket Lake next year.

The Gigabyte A520 Aorus Elite is a high-end A520 board, which might seem oxymoronic, but if you didn’t know what it was, you’d be forgiven for assuming it was more of a mid-range board and not a $90 bargain. It’s even got two RGB headers and a further two ARGB headers. About the only thing it really lacks is Wi-Fi, but then do you really expect to have Wi-Fi at this price? 

Gigabyte deserves credit for including audio built around the ALC1200 codec. Usually, this is reserved for use with more expensive motherboards. If you’re on a budget, this Gigabyte A520 Aorus Elite is well worth a look. It leaves Intel's budget B460 boards looking weak in comparison, plus you get the benefit of next-generation Ryzen compatibility. Is it for everyone? No, but the Gigabyte A520 Aorus Elite, unlike almost all preceding A320 boards, definitely does not mean cheap and nasty.

Gaming motherboard FAQ

What's the most important factor in buying a motherboard?

You need to know which processor you want to build your new rig around. Are you firmly tying yourself to the mast of the good ship Intel, with its impressive Alder Lake CPUs? Or are you going to continue flying the AMD flag proudly? Once you've picked your chip, it's down to features, overclocking intentions, and your budget.

What really matters when buying a motherboard?

Other than knowing which processor you're going to be fitting, size matters when picking up a motherboard. If you're building out a standard ATX scale gaming PC, then pretty much any motherboard is open to your whims, but if you want to go for a smaller chassis, either Micro ATX or Mini ITX, then you'll need a corresponding mobo. 

That doesn't necessarily mean sacrificing performance or key features anymore. A single PCIe slot is more than enough for today's SLI/CrossFire-less GPU world, and even some Mini ITX boards will come with multiple M.2 SSD slots.

The scale will impact pricing, however. Interestingly Micro ATX boards are often the most affordable, while Mini ITX options can be the most expensive. We've picked our top two favorite gaming motherboards for each of the main Intel and AMD chipsets to give you the best options around.

Can I overclock on any motherboard?

No. There are absolutely restrictions in place to stop that, especially on the Intel side. It has opened up memory overclocking across its 500-series chipsets, but still, the Z590 is your only chance of overclocking the latest Rocket Lake K-series CPUs. But don't worry, they don't overclock very well.

AMD is more generous, allowing all its CPUs and most of its motherboard chipsets. Basically, if you make sure not to go for the cheapest Ryzen board, one with an 'A' at the front of its nomenclature, then you're good to tweak. Though again, there really are limited returns.

Jargon buster - motherboard terminology

ATX, Micro-ATX, Mini-ITX

The most common form factors/sizes of a motherboard from largest to smallest, which beyond physical dimensions determines which cases it'll fit into and (broadly) how many expansion slots are available. There are other, less common form factors (XL-ATX, HPTX, etc.), but these three are the most ubiquitous consumer form factors.

USB Header

A connector on the motherboard that allows you to run a cable to the case to add additional USB ports, typically on the front panel (though some cases provide top or rear panel slots as well). 

BIOS/UEFI

Basic Input/Output System/Unified Extensible Firmware Interface connects the hardware and software that lives on the board (the firmware) to the operating system (OS, such as Windows or Linux). They allow you to adjust system-level settings, such as fan speed or RAM frequency. UEFI has largely replaced the older BIOS standard.

Expansion Slots (PCIe Slots)

Peripheral Component Interconnect Express slots on the motherboard are designed to accommodate add-in cards like graphics cards, SSD cards, dedicated sound cards, etc. PCIe slots are measured in both length (x16, x8, x4, x1) as well as by the number of data transmission lanes they provide (x16, x8, x4, x1). It's possible for an x16 slot to only provide 8 lanes of data, for instance, which means the maximum possible data transfer rate is halved (though in many cases, because PCIe provides such a high ceiling for transfer speeds, a lower number of lanes doesn't make a tremendous difference).

DIMM Slots

Dual In-Line Memory Module slots, the slots on a motherboard where your RAM lives. The number of total slots contributes to the maximum amount of RAM your system can handle, paired with the chipset and OS. 

Chipset

The logic allows the various parts of a motherboard to talk to each other. The chipset determines which processor generations a motherboard is compatible with and what add-in cards can be used.

SATA Ports

Serial Advanced Technology Attachment ports, an interface for connecting storage devices/drives to a motherboard (HDDs, SSDs, optical drives, etc.). The number of physical ports on your board, combined with ports for NVMe storage, will determine the total number of storage drives you can have connected to your PC at any time.

The neo-noir science-fiction television show was fun " ["content"]=> array(1) { ["encoded"]=> string(4643) "



The illustrious Cowboy Bebop series is one of the first mature animated shows to reach the West. The neo-noir science-fiction television show was fun to watch for its action scenes, enigmatic characters, and episodic side adventures, but it also drizzled insightful lines throughout about the hardships of living life.

“You’re gonna carry that weight” is one of them, placed at the ending as the curtains seemingly close on the bleeding-out daredevil Spike Spiegel. Because of the ambiguous close on the show, fans are still asking this one question for nearly 24 years: what does the ending of Cowboy Bebop mean? We’ll answer that by diving into what the line meant and guiding you through the fate of Spike Spiegel.

What Does the Ending Line in Cowboy Bebop Mean?  

Confronting trauma is a big focus in Cowboy Bebop. As viewers follow a band of misfits with their problems, their flaws become clear from their pasts, and they eventually have to come to terms with them whether they want to or not. Cowboy Bebop is known for bringing closure to those episodic character stories, but its poster boy, Spike Spiegel, has avoided those moments until the end. 

The line, “you’re gonna carry that weight,” contextualizes that Spike isn’t outrunning his past anymore and has come to terms with it, yet only at death’s door does it finally sink in for him. Another layer about the meaning of the line is a bit meta but reminds the viewer that whatever trauma you carry will stay with you, and you’ll always carry its significance to who you are today. 



Spike Spiegel: What Does the Ending of Cowboy Bebop Mean?

Source: Sunrise

Did Spike Spiegel Survive at the End of Cowboy Bebop?

Cowboy Bebop creator Shinichirō Watanabe had always planned to make the ending scene with Spike ambiguous. In fact, he told The Daily Texan in 2006 that the show’s staff “were upset” about it because it would shoot down “[making] a continuation.” 

But in the case of whether Spike survived or not, Watanabe stated that he “never officially said that [he] died” based on the ending of the show. However, he does say that even he’s “not sure if he’s alive or dead.” From that, it’s safe to say there isn’t an answer to what happened to Spike and that the ending has ultimately been left open to fan interpretation. But strangely enough, the character has always walked the line between life and death often, so it’s very poetic for what Spike represented.

The illustrious Cowboy Bebop series is one of the first mature animated shows to reach the West. The neo-noir science-fiction television show was fun to watch for its action scenes, enigmatic characters, and episodic side adventures, but it also drizzled insightful lines throughout about the hardships of living life.

“You’re gonna carry that weight” is one of them, placed at the ending as the curtains seemingly close on the bleeding-out daredevil Spike Spiegel. Because of the ambiguous close on the show, fans are still asking this one question for nearly 24 years: what does the ending of Cowboy Bebop mean? We’ll answer that by diving into what the line meant and guiding you through the fate of Spike Spiegel.

What Does the Ending Line in Cowboy Bebop Mean?  

Confronting trauma is a big focus in Cowboy Bebop. As viewers follow a band of misfits with their problems, their flaws become clear from their pasts, and they eventually have to come to terms with them whether they want to or not. Cowboy Bebop is known for bringing closure to those episodic character stories, but its poster boy, Spike Spiegel, has avoided those moments until the end. 

The line, “you’re gonna carry that weight,” contextualizes that Spike isn’t outrunning his past anymore and has come to terms with it, yet only at death’s door does it finally sink in for him. Another layer about the meaning of the line is a bit meta but reminds the viewer that whatever trauma you carry will stay with you, and you’ll always carry its significance to who you are today. 



Spike Spiegel: What Does the Ending of Cowboy Bebop Mean?

Did Spike Spiegel Survive at the End of Cowboy Bebop?

Cowboy Bebop creator Shinichirō Watanabe had always planned to make the ending scene with Spike ambiguous. In fact, he told The Daily Texan in 2006 that the show’s staff “were upset” about it because it would shoot down “[making] a continuation.” 

But in the case of whether Spike survived or not, Watanabe stated that he “never officially said that [he] died” based on the ending of the show. However, he does say that even he’s “not sure if he’s alive or dead.” From that, it’s safe to say there isn’t an answer to what happened to Spike and that the ending has ultimately been left open to fan interpretation. But strangely enough, the character has always walked the line between life and death often, so it’s very poetic for what Spike represented.

We know that the PS Plus Premium tier will include classic PS1, PS2, or PSP titles. However, Sony has just announced how these games will be enhanced for PS5 and PS4. Sony claims that select PS1 and PSP titles will be able to use save states to save your game, and rewind functionality to rewind the game. These new features will be accessible through a new user interface.

Furthermore, some titles will benefit from higher frame rates and better resolutions. It's not bad.

We almost didn't think Sony would go that extra mile for these older games. But it seems like they have put in a lot of effort. We are hopeful that the number of titles with these features will increase.

You can also click this link to see a list of confirmed PS1 or PSP games. This should be expanded by Sony in the near future. You can even download the games you already own digitally from older PlayStation platforms.

The Intel Arc GPUs have already found their way into laptops. You can find the complete line-up on the official Arc product webpage. The desktop parts are not known much except that they will be available in the second half the year. They will also first appear in OEM systems in China. The latest beta drivers, which list the model names for the as-yet unreleased GPUs, give us a little more information about these desktop graphics cards.

These beta drivers are only for official support laptops with Arc A350M and Arc A370M integrated graphics. Although these solutions may be available in theory, it is difficult to find any laptop equipped with Intel's discrete graphics processors.

pic.twitter.com/fquWmpBwahMay 15, 2022

The other chips listed in the drivers (spotted @momo_us), are more interesting. Five desktop GPUs are listed: A770 A750 A580 A380 A380 and A310. There were previously rumours that there was a high-end A780, and an affordable A350. However, neither is included in the driver package. Although they are not mentioned in the driver package, it does not mean that they don't exist.

Although the drivers don't give any details about the chips, the specifications for the mobile parts and previous rumours indicate that the A770 will feature 32 Xe Cores. It will also come in two configurations with 16GB and 8GB GDDR6 VRAM. These GPUs will use a 256 bit memory bus and have 4,096 FP32 cores.

A750 and A580 reduce the Xe Core count to 24 and 16, respectively. They also have narrower 192-bit, 128-bit memory buses. For the most affordable end of this spectrum, the A380 and A310 reduce it further to 8 and 4, respectively.

Although we were excited initially about Intel joining the graphics cards market, we are less enthusiastic the longer it takes for cards to actually get on the market. Graphics card pricing is slowly returning to MSRP levels. Nvidia and AMD will release their next-generation products in the second half. The latest rumours suggest that Nvidia's 4000-series GPUs could be available as soon as July. This could be before we see Intel Arc Alchemist GPUs.

A Sleeper stares out over an expanse in The Eye in Citizen Sleeper

No clean endings

Partway through Citizen Sleeper, I realize that the closest thing I have to real kin on this entire space station is trapped inside an ancient vending machine. Neovend 33 is a cranky little thing, but who can blame it? The AI has been dormant, gathering dust in a locked bay, hoping that someone like me — a dysfunctional Sleeper barely holding it together — would come along to help. Long after I bid Neovend farewell, it stays planted in my head like a seed, and I’m alone in facing the impracticalities of my own existence. And when I finish the game, left with nothing to do but exist, I miss Neovend, deeply.

Citizen Sleeper is the new narrative-driven, text-heavy role-playing game from Jump Over the Age (aka Gareth Damian Martin, the creator of 2020’s In Other Waters) that uses a dice system inspired by tabletop games. The player controls a Sleeper — an emulated “person” fleeing from the Essen-Arp megacorp in a proprietary body frame designed for “planned obsolescence.” It’s not far off from consumer tech now — hardware purposefully designed to wither in the face of endless updates and opaque new operating systems (or in the case of bionic eye company Second Sight, hardware that bricks itself in the face of bankruptcy). For Essen-Arp, these frames are a failsafe to prevent escapees like me from getting too far before they can send someone to bring me back. It is possible, though, to partially repair the Sleeper’s body, which is more than can be said for many electronics today.

Pulling from its tabletop inspirations, Citizen Sleeper has a range of three character classes. I choose one as far as possible from my real-life traits: the careful, structured Machinist who excels at engineering-type work. I awaken, filled with anxiety, on Erlin’s Eye (or simply “the Eye”), a decaying space station. My frame is in need of repair, and after meeting junk salvager Dragos, it becomes clear that I need to earn some “cryo,” a cryptocurrency that’s been isolated from the market. Capitalism is an endless bitch, but I quickly learn that even in the face of truly bleak choices, the game always allows the Sleeper to retain a soft, haunting sense of humanity through dialogue and actions. Fleeting scenes of violence and brutality also offer vulnerability, and I come away from them filled with conflicting flashes of sadness and resentment. One subplot, involving a hired goon named Ethan, is grimly moving, and at the end of his story, I dwell on the ugly minutiae of humanity in a universe where individual lives don’t seem to matter.

It takes me several cycles to build momentum toward narrative immersion, as well as a bit of fledgling confidence on the Eye. “Cycles” are the increments of time that move the game forward (they’re basically working days). Each cycle requires managing my condition (the state of my body), my available dice rolls (the actions I can perform), and my energy bar (the food situation). The worse my condition, the fewer dice I have. With each new character I meet, or area I explore, the game unlocks a new “drive,” or broad objectives to pursue — like joining a commune or finding a way to remove the Essen-Arp tracker from my traitorous frame. The essential idea behind Citizen Sleeper is to survive and use drives as loose pathways to fulfill your own needs, whether that means learning more about your past or figuring out your future.

The early tutorial cycles aren’t complicated if you’re familiar with turn-based tabletop RPGs that run on dice. Still, it takes me some time to find a good rhythm. By the time I hit cycles 30-40 I feel a singular, laser-like focus as I enter the Greenway, where I must forage for fragile mushrooms. I immerse myself in delivering noodles, unloading cargo, and scavenging for scraps to repair little parts of my body.

All of these small tasks serve greater objectives — particularly the drives to help others — and they fill narrative lulls and waiting periods with a sense of purpose, even if it is just busywork. I stubbornly spend at least 3 cryo a day feeding a stray cat, in the hopes that maybe the game will eventually cave and allow me to have a pet (it doesn’t).



Neovend 33, an AI in Citizen Sleeper, has been stuck in a vending machine for years

Image: Jump Over the Age/Fellow TravellerAs each cycle goes on, I explore more of the Eye and get acquainted with its ad-hoc bureaucracies, sojourning mercenaries, and enterprising merchants. After an event known as the “collapse,” the station became a lodestar for misfits and fugitives, a refuge for casualties of industrial greed, and a hideaway for restless AIs. There’s Emphis, a street food vendor whose body is marked with the telltale signs of corporate biotech; there’s also Sabine, an enigmatic doctor with suspicious motives. One of my favorite NPCs is Feng, a hacker born and raised on the Eye, determined to exorcize his home of its corporate past. It’s clear that Sleepers like me are a rare sight here, though, and the practical realities of living in this lawless place mean that many people view the Sleeper’s valuable body as a means to an end. Everyone on the Eye knows their place in the world except me.

Citizen Sleeper’s greatest strength (and also its most infuriating choice) is to untether me from concrete objectives and let me exist without a reasonOne thing that threw me off is that the credits play after every “proper” ending, and then I’m returned to where I left off, free to work on any remaining drives or just putter around the Eye. (I was a little confused the first time it happened, but continued playing — I’d passed up a chance to leave my body for good. But the second time it happened, I realized that this was by design, as if the game was repeatedly testing my desire to be truly free.) Finally, I complete all the drives and choose, against all sense, to stay on the Eye instead of escaping to the promise of a better life. At this point I’ve amassed enough resources to keep my body going for 40 or 50 cycles — if I keep doing my chores, I can exist as long as I want to. The panic and desperation of the early cycles are long gone, and my cup overflows with cryo. I have nothing left to do.

My spontaneous decision to stick around on the Eye, long after I’ve exhausted all my drives and lingering curiosities, threw me for a loop. I rejected all of the game’s proffered endings in favor of a self-induced limbo, which forced me to confront my expectations of clean, neat closure; I’m not sure how it’ll all resonate with someone who chose a more finite way to wrap things up.

Image: Jump Over the Age/Fellow TravellerBut the game’s greatest strength (and also its most infuriating choice) is to untether me from concrete objectives and let me exist without a reason. I continue going through cycles to feed the cat, play games of tavla for cryo, and help out at the local bar. At first, I expect an endgame surprise, like a sadistic JRPG boss hiding in the wings (which would be a decidedly uncharacteristic move for the developer), but nothing happens. What am I supposed to do without a drive? Why am I even here? It’s almost trollish, but I realize I have no reason to expect more. The abruptness of the “ending,” or rather the vague flexibility around my particular end, is bewildering, but I respected it as a sort of passive-aggressive drag.

When I finally decide to end the game, I leave my Sleeper in the Greenway, where I imagine they can keep on going about their quiet, private routines. I’m not sure I’ll come back to the Eye again, because even if I make different decisions on another run, Citizen Sleeper’s most potent power lies in that first playthrough, when you arrive with nothing, and know even less. This isn’t so much about “replay value” as it is about the singular experience of a journey that — in keeping with the fiction of being a ragged Sleeper trying to survive — is very much a one-way street. Did I do right by my Sleeper? I don’t know. But all things must come to an end, and I feel like they would understand.

Citizen Sleeper will be released on May 5 on Windows PC, Mac, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and Nintendo Switch.

Image: Jump Over the Age/Fellow TravellerBut the game’s greatest strength (and also its most infuriating choice) is to untether me from concrete objectives and let me exist without a reason. I continue going through cycles to feed the cat, play games of tavla for cryo, and help out at the local bar. At first, I expect an endgame surprise, like a sadistic JRPG boss hiding in the wings (which would be a decidedly uncharacteristic move for the developer), but nothing happens. What am I supposed to do without a drive? Why am I even here? It’s almost trollish, but I realize I have no reason to expect more. The abruptness of the “ending,” or rather the vague flexibility around my particular end, is bewildering, but I respected it as a sort of passive-aggressive drag.

When I finally decide to end the game, I leave my Sleeper in the Greenway, where I imagine they can keep on going about their quiet, private routines. I’m not sure I’ll come back to the Eye again, because even if I make different decisions on another run, Citizen Sleeper’s most potent power lies in that first playthrough, when you arrive with nothing, and know even less. This isn’t so much about “replay value” as it is about the singular experience of a journey that — in keeping with the fiction of being a ragged Sleeper trying to survive — is very much a one-way street. Did I do right by my Sleeper? I don’t know. But all things must come to an end, and I feel like they would understand.

Citizen Sleeper will be released on May 5 on Windows PC, Mac, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and Nintendo Switch.

Sam Raimi tries to find the hero inside a particularly difficult MCU protagonist

In the hallowed halls of Marvel Comics, Dr. Stephen Strange is a much more consistent visitor in other heroes’ stories than a star in his own. His immense power and his remove from the ordinary world of heroing make him something of an abstraction in the Marvel universe — mostly useful when other heroes run afoul of his marvelous, perilous world of magic, and drop in on him for help and explanations.

And the good doctor’s usefulness as a secondary character has translated to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, too. Since his obligatory origin film in 2016, Strange (as played by Benedict Cumberbatch) has found more memorable cinematic life in supporting roles as a magical expert with wise words for the beleaguered protagonists of Thor: RagnarokAvengers: Infinity War, and Spider-Man: No Way Home. For his return to top billing in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, director Sam Raimi (director of the Spider-Mantrilogy and the Evil Dead trilogy) and screenwriter Michael Waldron (Rick and MortyLoki) have found a way to lean into this.

That means packing the story full of as many other characters as possible, as early as possible in the story. Setting a movie in the full breadth of the Marvel Cinematic Multiverse sets up the opportunity to bring in a lot of characters — and a lot of references designed to thrill comics fans and MCU obsessives alike. But no matter how many universes Multiverse of Madness leaps through, it can’t escape the fact that its hero is Stephen Strange. And his strong supporting cast only underscores the weakness of his own personal evolution.



America Chavez, Wong, and Doctor Strange look anxiously toward the camera in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness

Image: Marvel StudiosDoctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness barrels adroitly through its opening, assembling its cast and launching them all on quests for various personally important MacGuffins. The most talkative and sympathetic of those MacGuffins is America Chavez (Xochitl Gomez), a new-to-the-MCU character facing a powerful magical enemy. Naturally, her escape runs her right into the path of Stephen Strange, who seeks help from old allies like Benedict Wong’s Wong, and new ones like Elizabeth Olsen’s Scarlet Witch.

Olsen definitely gives the film’s most arresting performance, and after the Disney Plus TV series WandaVision, that shouldn’t surprise anyone. Gomez is charming as America — her central role and overall storyline seem destined to set up a solo Disney Plus series of her own, and this movie makes that prospect particularly appealing.

Just like in his first film and in the comics, the star of a Doctor Strange story isn’t Stephen himself. He remains egotistical, pompous, and condescending. It’s clear that he’s unlikable in all universes, to greater or lesser degrees. The real hero in Multiverse of Madness isn’t a person; it’s the visuals — particularly the way Raimi and his team depict mind-rending magical abilities, ones that obey no wands or Harry Potter-like pig-Latin incantations. Director Scott Derrickson leaned on shifting kaleidoscope worlds and Inception-esque landscapes for the original Doctor Strange. But once a single sequence nodding at that film’s fractal magic visuals is out of the way, Multiverse of Madness completes a full transformation into Sam Raimi’s House of Magical Spooks and Monsters.

In this movie, tentacles roil, specters scream, skeletons taunt, and eldritch hands seek, grasp, and pull. Goofy body-horror deaths — a tasting menu’s worth — play to delighted gasps. There are at least two moments where characters look straight out of the screen and make eye contact with the audience. The camera swoops across scenes, delivers POV shots from the oddest of entities, and transitions from sequence to sequence via occasionally dreamlike leaps. Particularly memorable is an entire magical duel accomplished through animated musical notes, underscored (ho ho) by the work of composer Danny Elfman.

Multiverse of Madness joins a young but swiftly growing realm of modern action cinema based around the comic book idea of an endless system of parallel worlds. In the DC and Marvel settings, the multiverse springs from the simultaneously capitalistic and nostalgic desire to preserve all versions of the characters that fans love, holding them fast against the ravages of time, editorial mandate, plot hole, and paradox. But in film, the multiverse has been put to different purposes.

Image: Marvel StudiosTo Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, infinite worlds are a proving ground that show how anyone can be a hero. To Everything Everywhere All at Once, they’re a chance to see the meaning in every potential lifetime. In Multiverse of Madness, the multiverse is less of a metaphor than a tool for turning the connections between superheroes and their stories into another big Marvel event.

Raimi’s cinematic wizardry lends loads of dazzle to the pack of references and callbacks that make up a large part of the film’s middle. But strip away all the sparks, and Multiverse of Madness is simply leaning on the same cross-referential thrill-of-recognition joy-button that the Marvel Cinematic Universe has been frantically pressing for more than a decade now, designed to elicit huge gasps from die-hard fans, while sending everyone else to the Google search bar on their phones.

Eventually, though, Multiverse of Madness has to leave the realm of endless parallel earths and return to its titular wizard. In all versions of the Marvel Universe, Strange is a twist on Faust, a man who discovers the ultimate cosmic shortcut. Waldron’s script hammers home the ways in which the power to tell the laws of physics to sit down and shut up has not solved any of Stephen’s real problems. He’s still a man of self-inflicted isolation and bottomless ego, and while he may have evolved from helping people for the glory of being the world’s greatest surgeon to helping them because they need him, he hasn’t rid himself of his god complex.

Multiverse of Madness repeatedly invites Stephen Strange to learn that he isn’t always right, and that all magic comes with a price. It suggests that he’s foolish to be so certain that the dark paths that have corrupted others won’t also corrupt him. It feints at the evolution he needs if he’s ever going to be a hero, rather than a particularly flashy, fancy detail in other people’s stories. But the film’s thoughts on Doctor Strange’s deals with devils (metaphorical ones, at least) remain open, and its refusal to answer its own questions remains frustrating. In the end, it’s his name on the poster, so he gets to break all the rules and still claim hero status. Will consequences catch up with him? As an answer, all that Multiverse of Madness has to offer is the second button the MCU has worn down to a nub: Tune in next time!

Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness debuts in theaters on May 6.

" ["content"]=> array(1) { ["encoded"]=> string(3938) "




Crowns and Pawns - Kingdom of Deceit: PC

Although it might seem that the days of point-and-click adventures are over, independent titles continue to bring the genre back into mainstream consciousness. Monkey Island's sequel was announced in a shocking announcement. Now, with Thunderful Publishing and Tag of Joy’s Crowns and Pawns: Kingdom of Deceit being released, it is a great time to be looking for puzzle-solving adventures.

It is evident that Crowns and Pawns, Kingdom of Deceit was inspired by its great forefathers, Broken Sword.



Chicago native Milda is being sent on a journey across oceans to Europe. It will be up to players if they can help her in her search to protect a family secret that has been shrouded by mystery. Players will not be disappointed by epic adventures. The focus on Europe's history, which hasn't been extensively explored in the genre, makes it even more compelling to get in on the action.

The Grand Duchy of Lithuania's stories add a lot of color to the proceedings. Also, the KGB's meddling is a major theme. As you solve puzzles and follow the narrative, conspiracy theorists will have a field day. The writing is engaging and fascinating, giving life to both the story and the important characters in the game.

A point-and-click adventure such as this is ultimately defined by its puzzle design. Crowns and Pawns Kingdom of Deceit certainly fulfills this aspect of the deal with great variety and execution. This game does not require any handholding. Paying attention to even the smallest details can make all the difference between getting stuck or moving on. You will be surprised at how many solutions you can choose to help Milda. This adds replay value and adds an extra layer of fun.



Clicking on the mouse wheel can help you find the interactivity parts of any location. This will give you a hint about how to proceed. As is the case with all genres, the devil is always in details. For example, choosing the right order for conversations and actions will lead you to new discoveries. There are some things that could be improved to make the experience better, like puzzles that have time limits or highlight more prominently a message that Milda received. However, overall, Crowns and Pawns Kingdom of Deceit is enjoyable and challenging enough.

The visuals are quite pleasing. The backgrounds are hand-painted and combine well with 3D models. This allows for fine details to be seen. Just don't look too closely when you zoom in. The audio quality is excellent. The voice acting is particularly good. This helps to enhance the immersion for players who are eager to embark on an adventure into unknown territory. While solving puzzles can be more enjoyable when there's a good soundtrack to keep them company, it also makes the experience more pleasurable.



It is worth spending six to eight hours in this particular version of Lithuania. Even though Tag of Joy is preparing for a sequel, it is definitely worth the trip. Although the story moves in a hurried fashion through the ending, it doesn't necessarily undo all the hard work that led to its conclusion. Crowns and Pawns, Kingdom of Deceit is an intriguing tale of adventure that doesn't necessarily reinvent the wheel. It pays tribute to its predecessors, while offering a new experience that will appeal to all ages.

" ["content"]=> array(1) { ["encoded"]=> string(12287) "



If you’re just starting out in the game, we’ve prepared a Nier Reincarnation reroll guide, along with some general recommendations for units and weapons you should try to aim for while rerolling.

Nier Reincarnation is a mobile gacha game from Square Enix and Applibot, and it’s a pretty exciting game for Nier fans, especially when you consider that series director Yoko Taro and composer Keiichi Okabe are involved with the project. Just like any other gacha game on the market, there are plenty of weapons and characters you can get through the pull system.

How to Reroll in Nier Reincarnation

First off, this process will be slightly different depending on the kind of device you’re using. Android users will have a slightly easier time while rerolling as they can simply select the Clear Data option from their settings to reset the app, while iOS users will need to delete the app completely and reinstall it to reroll.

Start up the game and play through the prologue.

Once you gain control of your character for the first time with Mama by your side, tap on Mama 100 times.This will reward you with 3,000 Gems once you clear chapter 1.

Complete chapter 1.We recommend reading through all the text and playing through the story bits on your first playthrough, but after that first time, you can speed through these by putting the game on Auto and running it at 2x speed. Do note that the auto-battle will only become available from the third battle onwards, so you’ll still need to manually click on your skills to activate them. Outside of combat, you can also click on Auto to have your character run through the level for you. During story segments, you can also click on the upper right corner of the screen to skip the sequence and go directly to the fight.

After completing chapter 1, tap on Missions in the top right corner to claim all mission clear rewards.This is where you’ll be able to claim the 3,000 Gems from tapping on Mama 100 times.



Tap on the Gift Box to receive all of your rewards.



Open the menu and tap on the Summon option, then do your 10x pulls on whichever banner you’d like.Spend all your Gems on the pulls here, then assess what you’ve got.



If you happen to land on a 4-star unit you like, you can also enhance them with your leveling materials to get more mission clear rewards, which gives you more Gems.Open the menu and tap on the Enhance option, then choose the character you want to level up. We only recommend doing this for 4-star units that you’ll use in your party formation.



If you’re not happy with your pulls, exit the game and clear the data, then repeat the process.If you’re on Android, tap on Settings, then Apps, then Nier Reincarnation, and choose the Clear Data option. On iOS, delete and reinstall the app.

Once you’re happy with your pulls, make sure to link your account by opening the menu and choosing the Transfer Data option.



Who to Reroll For

At the time of writing, the FFXIV collab event is currently underway in Nier Reincarnation. So if you’re a new player just jumping into the game now, you’ll probably want to pull on the FFXIV Phantasmal banner to try to get at least one of those characters, with Noelle – Phantasmal Weapon being your top priority.

However, the event is time-limited, so if you’re looking for recommendations from the general pool, here are a few good ones:

Gayle – Bloody HunterGayle – Abstract HunterLevania – Abstract MonsterRion – Abstract ExileDimos – Bloody GunmanDimos – Abstract GunmanGriff – Lacrima CaptainGriff – Abstract CaptainLars – Abstract Soldier063y – Abstract Prisoner

While rerolling your account, you’ll want to make sure that you’ve got a good DPS character that you can level up and essentially carry you through the story quests and most of the other content in Nier Reincarnation.

To that end, both of Gayle’s costumes are great picks, with the Bloody Hunter variant being superior for PvE content. The Abstract Hunter is completely serviceable as well, though she seems to be a much better pick for PvP rather than PvE. Either way, if you land on either of these Gayle costumes, you’re pretty much good to go.

That doesn’t mean you should discount the rest of the picks we have here, however. Both of Dimos’s costumes are also solid PvE and PvP contenders, especially if you’d like to have a gunner on your team. Lacrima Griff also stands out as being one of the best gunners in the game right now, if you’re willing to invest in him and max him out.

Finally, some of your support options include Abstract Exile and Abstract Prisoner, both of which would be nice to have on your team if you managed to pull another 4-star DPS character to go along with them.

That’s all you need to know about how to reroll your account in Nier Reincarnation. Be sure to search for Twinfinite for more tips and information on the game.

If you’re not happy with your pulls, exit the game and clear the data, then repeat the process.If you’re on Android, tap on Settings, then Apps, then Nier Reincarnation, and choose the Clear Data option. On iOS, delete and reinstall the app.

Once you’re happy with your pulls, make sure to link your account by opening the menu and choosing the Transfer Data option.



Who to Reroll For

At the time of writing, the FFXIV collab event is currently underway in Nier Reincarnation. So if you’re a new player just jumping into the game now, you’ll probably want to pull on the FFXIV Phantasmal banner to try to get at least one of those characters, with Noelle – Phantasmal Weapon being your top priority.

However, the event is time-limited, so if you’re looking for recommendations from the general pool, here are a few good ones:

Gayle – Bloody HunterGayle – Abstract HunterLevania – Abstract MonsterRion – Abstract ExileDimos – Bloody GunmanDimos – Abstract GunmanGriff – Lacrima CaptainGriff – Abstract CaptainLars – Abstract Soldier063y – Abstract Prisoner

While rerolling your account, you’ll want to make sure that you’ve got a good DPS character that you can level up and essentially carry you through the story quests and most of the other content in Nier Reincarnation.

To that end, both of Gayle’s costumes are great picks, with the Bloody Hunter variant being superior for PvE content. The Abstract Hunter is completely serviceable as well, though she seems to be a much better pick for PvP rather than PvE. Either way, if you land on either of these Gayle costumes, you’re pretty much good to go.

That doesn’t mean you should discount the rest of the picks we have here, however. Both of Dimos’s costumes are also solid PvE and PvP contenders, especially if you’d like to have a gunner on your team. Lacrima Griff also stands out as being one of the best gunners in the game right now, if you’re willing to invest in him and max him out.

Finally, some of your support options include Abstract Exile and Abstract Prisoner, both of which would be nice to have on your team if you managed to pull another 4-star DPS character to go along with them.

That’s all you need to know about how to reroll your account in Nier Reincarnation. Be sure to search for Twinfinite for more tips and information on the game.

This mobile gun is highly rated on our list for the best Warzone SMGs. However, it's better suited " ["content"]=> array(1) { ["encoded"]=> string(3386) "






What is the best Type 100 Warzone Pacific loadout? This mobile gun is highly rated on our list for the best Warzone SMGs. However, it's better suited to close-range operations as your stats will drop if you engage in long-range and medium-range conflicts.

Thankfully, Warzone's Season 3 update has shifted the meta, making guns like this and other not-the-Owen-but-still-viable picks more competitive. The best Type 100 build should maximize fire rate to ensure efficient time-to kill, while also giving the range an increase so that you can take more control of how you engage any enemies.

Even after the Season 3 changes, SMGs are still one of the most effective Warzone guns. The Type 100 isn't the top-tier gun but it's still very good and more viable than ever in the Call of Duty battle royale games. We have an OTS 9 loadout that is lethal and accurate. Let's take a look at every attachment that you should attach to the Type 100.

Call of Duty Warzone Pacific Type 100 is the best loadout.

Recoil BoosterWarubachi 134mm RapidSlate ReflectorShiraishi T100M1941 Hand Stopmm Kurz 48 Round DrumsLengthenedFabric GripGung-hoQuick

This loadout aims to maximize time-to-kill at close-range, while also increasing mobility so that you can get close to the enemy. Although the Recoil Booster attachment increases fire rate, it also reduces accuracy. However, this trade-off is trivial considering the distances you will be traveling.

We recommend the Warubachi Rapid 134mm for the barrel attachment. It also increases fire rate. The Slate Reflector is an excellent sight for close range and we recommend it in all of our close-range loadout guide. The Shiraishi T100 is recommended for stock. It pairs well with the M1941 hand stop underbarrel attachment, to reduce recoil and offset some of the loss in accuracy. Although the damage buff of the mm Kurz 48 round drum magazine has been reduced in Season 3, it is still included in this loadout. The Fabric Grip is essential for short-range fights and quick ADS speeds.

We recommend the Lengthened ammunition attachment to keep the Type 100 in close range. It increases muzzle velocity and damages, and further reduces the time-to-kill. Quick can be used to increase your sprint speed and hold the Type 100 for a flat boost. Gung-ho allows you to sprint while firing. This combination is deadly and can quickly rack up close-range kills.

These are the attachments that we recommend to get the best Type 100 loadout possible in Warzone Pacific. If you want something different, the meta is still very much Owen. However, you can check out our best Warzone Sniper rifle guide.

California filed a lawsuit against Activision Blizzard in July 2021 alleging harassment and discrimination at work. Bobby Kotick, the CEO of Activision Blizzard, was embroiled in the story and the US government opened an investigation. The story continues to unfold and is of great importance to the gaming industry. This explainer article keeps you informed about all developments.

Are you looking for the Mechagodzilla Skin in Warzone? This guide will walk you through all the details.

Three Tracer packs are available from the Warzone Store to celebrate Operation Monarch, which is taking place on Warzone’s Caldera map. It's easy to locate the Kong and Godzilla skins right now. They are prominently displayed in the Featured section of the Store tab.

How to buy Mechagodzilla skin in Warzone

The only way to purchase the Mechagodzilla Skin at the moment is to click on the 'Buy Multiple Bundles and Earn Rewards' option under the 'Operation Monarch’ tab. You will need to purchase both the Kong and Godzilla packs at 2400 COD points each. However, you will be able to then choose to purchase the Mechagodzilla Skin.

This is the only way players have access to Mechagodzilla at the moment. However, it's likely that the Operation Monarch Tracer Pack 3 will soon be available for purchase separately in the Store tab. It remains to be determined when exactly.

What are the rewards of buying multiple bundles?

As a reward, if you decide to buy all three Operation Monarch Tracer Packs via the above option, you will receive the following cosmetic items:

'Superspecies Player Title – Received for buying two bundlesGodzilla vs Kong Weapon Sticker – Received to purchase two bundlesLegendary Owen Gun Blueprint – Received as a reward when purchasing all three bundles including Mechagodzilla.

What is the Life Expectancy of Operation Monarch Bundles?

Activision has not yet officially announced when the Kong, Godzilla, and Mechagodzilla Tracer packs will be leaving the Warzone Store. We'd guess that the bundles will be leaving around the end of this event, considering that it is in-game from May 11 to May 25.

If you are only interested in the Mechagodzilla Skin, then there is no rush to buy all three bundles. We recommend that you wait for the skin to become available separately, and then we suggest that you do so.

Originally planned for an early summer release date

Techland has delayed Dying Light 2Stay Human’s upcoming story add-on until September, the developer announced Thursday. The update was originally slated for release in early summer.

Dying Light 2 was released in February, and praised as a solid “7/10 game” with great parkour. A huge patch was issued in April, in which Techland added fixes for multiplayer and single-player modes alongside a New Game+ mode. The game will also feature an upcoming event, “In the Footsteps of a Nightrunner,” scheduled for June, with a photo mode expected soon, too. But the first major story DLC will have to wait.

Techland addressed fans in a statement issued via news release:

Your feedback has always been our top priority. That’s why, at Techland, we strive to be as open and as honest with you as possible.

Over the last few months, we have focused on adding some of your most requested features, such as New Game + mode, FOV slider for consoles, and many co-op improvements. On top of that, in June, we will introduce the first game Chapter entitled “In the Footsteps of a Nightrunner,” filled with content and events, as well as the highly anticipated photo mode.

That being said, we need a bit more time to develop the first story DLC, which is now planned to be released in September.

We apologize for the delay, but we firmly believe that our community, fans, and gamers deserve to receive some truly unforgettable experiences.

We want the first major story DLC to meet your expectations by giving it the absolute highest level of polish. Thank you for your trust and support.
