All rise, the greatest earthbender in the world has arrived. Toph Beifong, the fan-favorite character from Avatar: The Last Airbender, was announced as a playable character for Nickelodeon: All-Star Brawl. She’s bringing her fiery and stubborn personality with an array of heavy attacks. Yet, as an earthbender, she has the means to fight from afar as well. Toph follows the tail of other Avatar characters, Aang and Korra, who were recently announced as playable characters. Compared to the other two, Toph seems to utilize her bending abilities the most. While Aang and Korra are somewhat reserved with their bending skills, Toph is filling the map with projectiles and sweeping earth attacks. The melon lord arrives for another battle Toph’s kit is filled with references to the show, including one of the rock puppets she uses while masquerading as the “melon-lord.” (She can even metalbend with one of her abilities.) Her moves look a bit slower than the others in the roster, but it’s made up for with her great range. She even has an ability similar to Steve in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, possessing the ability to create platforms on command with her earthbending. Her special stage is ‘Omashu,’ a location within the Earth Kingdom from the show. This is a large stage with many hazards filling the screen, as merchant carts roll across the platforms. While I understand giving a stage from the Earth Kingdom to Toph, she’s not actually from Omashu, and I don’t think she’s ever visited as well. But the stage looks energetic and frantic, so all is forgiven. Toph Beifong will release alongside the rest of the Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl crew on October 5 for all platforms. Although, an official release date is not yet available on the game’s Steam page. Check out her gameplay trailer below.

It isn’t often that major publishers announce a brand new IP and then dump it on us two weeks later. That’s exactly what’s happened, though, as Square Enix has announced both the existence of and the release date for its new dungeon crawling experience, Dungeon Encounters. The game has a name that definitely brings to mind both dungeons and encountering things in them. It’s a top-down, grid-based affair that will see players exploring the depths of unexplored labyrinths just beginning to be thoroughly examined. The game is coming to PC via Steam, so we’ll be able to partake soon. Dungeon Encounters is set to release on October 14, so it’s a little less than two weeks away. Not much fanfare on this one, eh? The game is headed up by folks who worked on some of the Final Fantasy games. Its director is Hiroyuki Ito, the man who also helmed such classics as Final Fantasy VI and Final Fantasy IX. He also did Final Fantasy XII, but we shouldn’t hold that against him. This is the first game he’s helmed since that, which is shocking because this is the guy who made FF VI. Why would you not want that guy? Dungeon Encounters get October release date The game features 100 levels filled with monsters and obstacles that will require a great portion of your cunning to survive. As Ito’s directing, his Active Time Battle System is going to be at the forefront here. You can get your first peek at the gameplay in the trailer included below which, honestly, is more minimalistic than I had been expecting. It’s got a lot of featureless, solid backgrounds covered in squares. That certainly is grid-based, I guess. We’ll just have to trust Ito for now, as we won’t have to wait long to see what he has in store for us. It’s not airships this time, folks.

Ever since its reveal back in E3 2021, Stranger of Paradise: Final Fantasy Origin left an impression on the gaming public both for better and for worse. The game, which reimagines the world of the original Final Fantasy and features action combat similar to that of Nioh, gained attention less so for its enjoyable gameplay loop and more so for its corny, meme-worthy presentation and dialogue. Players everywhere endlessly clowned on protagonist Jack’s edgy lines about wanting to “kill Chaos.” The demo’s initially unplayable state upon launch only made the game even easier to make fun of. But regardless if one thinks the game will turn out an enjoyable time or a complete disaster, they will likely be interested to hear that Stranger of Paradise: Final Fantasy Origin has a new release date of March 18, 2022. And there’s a new demo to try out, too. According to a press release, this new demo, dubbed Stranger of Paradise: Final Fantasy Origin Trial Version 2, will expand upon the first demo that came out during June. The demo will feature “an additional stage” called the Refrin Wetlands, a new party member, new jobs to experiment with, and new enemies to fight. Additionally, the demo will allow players to try out the game’s multiplayer feature for the first time, and it links to a survey that players can fill out to give feedback. Players can experience the new demo until Oct. 11, and the survey will remain available until October 18. The gift that keeps on giving Not everyone will rejoice over the announcement of the release date and the new demo for Stranger of Paradise: Final Fantasy Origin, but the news should still excite those genuinely looking forward to it as well as those looking for some new meme material. And judging by the reactions to some of the new scenes in the demo, the game still has quite a few more meme-worthy moments to anticipate.

If you’ve kept up with the headlines about Epic’s development on the next major iteration of its Unreal Engine, you’ll know there are some impressive new things on the way. The next generation of Unreal Engine will support technologies like Nanite, Lumen, and Niagara just to name a few. In short, these features allow game developers to increase the level of detail and realism in 3D environments with new levels of efficiency. Together, the technologies yield scenes ever-closer to reality. And while Unreal Engine 5 isnt due for release until 2022, developers have been able to play around with early builds to get familiar with what’s now possible. While we’re still a ways out from seeing games built in Unreal Engine 5, you can play the Market of Light tech demo today via Steam. The Market of Light demo was created by Japanese developer historia Inc, which is best known for The Caligula Effect games. As an effort to get familiar with Epic Games’ new tech, it created this demo using an early build of the new engine to see how far it could push 3D scenes. As you can see for yourself, the results are incredible. However, you need a pretty hefty graphics card in order to meet the minimum specs. Nothing shy of a GTX 1070 will do. However, you’ll see that the visual payoff is huge. Unreal Engine 5 allows graphics to achieve new highs that were previously impossible with older techniques. While many are caught up in the rush to get better hardware, it’s also important to remember that better software is just as important for improving graphics in video games. A glimpse into the future of gaming The Market of Light demo isnt small, so be prepared to facilitate just over 23 GB of space on your hard drive if you want to download it. This is more or less the first chance gamers have to see Unreal Engine 5 technologies running on their own rigs. At least, as something created by a professional developer for audiences to play. The demo itself is pretty short. You’ll fly around a small marketplace as a firefly and experience different effects and lighting scenarios. Here’s an idea of ​​what you should be paying attention to. Nanite provides an insane polygon density for objects, Lumen offers dynamic lighting, and Niagara powers the fancy visual effects. The developer description notes that the demo contains 4.9 billion polygons, 253 8K textures, and 1,065 4K textures. That’s a lot of guacamole to call holy. Pun intended. If you like what you see, you can check out some more tech demos powered by Unreal Engine 5. Epic collaborated with Sony to show off the first demo with the engine running on a PlayStation 5. The Gears of War developer also created a short demonstration called Alpha Point, which focuses on more lighting and effects.

In what could be seen as a final effort to bring player count up, the divisive Marvel’s Avengers is heading to Xbox Game Pass for PC later this week. It includes the base game along with all post-launch content, including the expansion. Black Panther: War for Wakanda launched for the game last month. Game Pass subscribers will have access to it along with the rest of Marvel’s Avengers on September 30. Granted, I’m probably not being all too fair. Marvel’s Avengers has gotten a lot of updates and changes since it launched last year. Even the Steam rating has gone from Mixed to Mostly Positive. And hell, we also liked the game despite its issues. This week, Xbox Game Pass subscribers will receive a lot of game to play through, offering many hours of content. It’s plenty of time to figure out if the game hits all the right marks for you. It didn’t for me back in the day. I just didn’t care for it when I played the beta way back when. But with it coming to Game Pass, I might give it another shot with some of my buddies. As mentioned, there will be a lot to do. Marvel’s Avengers will come with all the post-launch content when it lands on Xbox Game Pass for PC. This includes all the heroes and missions brought to you following the release. It also includes the Endgame Edition DLC, which brings new outfits for heroes such as Iron Man (Bleeding Edge outfit) and Thor (Young Thor outfit). Along with the other content, you can also play as Black Panther in the War for Wakanda expansion. Naturally, in the expansion Black Panther must face off against Ulysses Klaue, who brought a small army of robots to the party. I don’t see how that’s a party. Put on the suit Marvel’s Avengers does the hero landing onto Xbox Game Pass for PC starting September 30. It’s announcement should come as a nice surprise, especially considering how stacked the month has been. The service already got a lot of games in September, ranging from Sable to I am Fish.

In Call of Duty: Warzone, some points of interest are more popular than others. Some of the most action packed landing spots include the Hospital and Airport. Once landed, many players have been encountering some bugs and glitches in those spots. Although the Airport is a popular point of interest, a few months ago it had a game breaking wall glitch. As you can imagine, this is a really frustrating way to go out. Now, the Warzone Airport wall glitch is back with a vengeance and it is more difficult to counter than before. When the Warzone wall glitch first came about, many players were taking advantage of it to get easy kills. However, in some way, players had the opportunity to counter the glitch as you could see where the bullets were coming from when a player was inside the wall. The latest glitch doesn’t even give you a chance. The Warzone Airport glitch is back to ruin matches A player posted a clip of them falling victim to the wall glitch at the Airport on the Warzone Reddit page. As you can see, the player was hunting down their bounty contract. As they pulled out their heartbeat sensor, they probably did not expect to die in this way. From the killcam, you can see that the opponent somehow got underneath the map and was lurking there until an unfortunate victim passed by. The wall glitch at the Airport — which ended up spreading to some other areas of the Warzone map — has been fixed before. Therefore, we can only hope that developer Raven Software deploys a fix quickly before it gets out of hand. Until then, it may be beneficial for you to avoid the Airport point of interest where possible.

Remember the Lantern Rite Tales event back in February? That had a mechanic known as Festive Fever, a gauge that could be increased when you completed certain sidequests. Now, the new Moonlight Merriment has its own ways of getting these boosts. Here’s our Genshin Impact guide to help you earn Festive Fever for the Moonlight Merriment event. Note: For more information about the game, check out our Genshin Impact guides and features hub, as well as our version 2.1 overview. Likewise, you can take a look at our main guide for the Moonlight Merriment event in Genshin Impact. Genshin Impact: How to earn Festive Fever for the Moonlight Merriment event The Moonlight Merriment in Genshin Impact doesn’t seem like it requires you to do a dozen sidequests just to gain more Festive Fever. Instead, these points are simply acquired as you complete various challenges and tasks. To clarify, we’re currently at the Path of the Stalwart Stone stage (ie, Part 1). This stage has activities such as the Moonchase Tales (cooking with the Cloud Retainer), Moonlight Seeker (finding chests and charms), and Trail of Delicacies (battling multiple enemies). The Moonchase Tales event doesn’t grant you Festive Fever. But, if you look at the Moonlight Seeker and Trail of Delicacies panel, you’ll see what you need: Moonlight Seeker – Continue opening Mystmoon Chests and Moonchase Charms in the area (ie, Huaguang Stone Forest). Each 25% threshold in the progress bar nets you 50 Festive Fever for a maximum of 200 points. Trail of Delicacies – There are six challenges that give you Festive Fever once they’re completed for a total of 350 points. During this particular stage, you can have 550 points. The maximum that you need to acquire is 1,000 Festive Fever to unlock Part 2 of the Moonlight Merriment event. As of now, we still don’t know if the additional stages will provide the same number of points or if things will be changed. We’ll find out in the coming days, so stay tuned. Genshin Impact is available via its official website. For more information, check out our guides and features hub.

The Luxurious Sea-Lord is a new 4-star claymore that you can have thanks to the version 2.1 update. It does have some decent quirks, including one of the most ridiculous procs that you’ll ever see in the game. Here’s our guide to help you obtain the Luxurious Sea-Lord and the Emperor’s Balsam refinement material during the Moonlight Merriment event in Genshin Impact. Note: For more information about the game, check out our Genshin Impact guides and features hub, as well as our version 2.1 overview. Likewise, you can take a look at our main guide for the Moonlight Merriment event in Genshin Impact. Genshin Impact: Moonlight Merriment event – ​​How to obtain the Luxurious Sea-Lord and Emperor’s Balsam refinement material To obtain the Luxurious Sea-Lord claymore in Genshin Impact, all you need to do is partake in the Moonlight Merriment’s Moonlight Seeker activity. Specifically, you’ll want to explore the Huaguang Stone Forest area so you can find all the Mystmoon Chests and Moonchase Charms. To check your progress bar, just open the event panel. If you manage to reach 100% collection progress, you’ll receive the weapon. As for the Emperor’s Balsam refinement material, we currently know of one source: the final challenge in the Trail of Delicacies (Path of the Stalwart Stone). In it, you’ll fight several Ruin Guards and their Hilichurl allies. If you manage to beat your foes, just check the event panel to pick up your reward. Note: Genshin Impact’s Moonlight Merriment event has two additional stages: the Path of Gentle Breezes (Mondstadt) and the Path of Austere Snow (Dragonspine). These stages will also have similar activities, and it’s possible that additional refinement materials will be up for grabs. We’ll learn more in the coming days once these stages are live. Is the Luxurious Sea-Lord any good? The Luxurious Sea-Lord has ATK% as a sub-stat, so that’s pretty decent. Likewise, it has the Oceanic Victory perk. It provides +12% elemental burst damage and, when the elemental burst hits opponents, you’ll have a 100% chance to summon a titanic tuna that deals 100% of your ATK as AoE damage. This effect can occur every 15 seconds. We’re not kidding. You read that right. This proc will have a gigantic fish slam down on opponents. But, do take note that this is only when your burst manages to hit enemies. Characters with shorter burst cooldowns and ATK% focus (ie, Diluc and Razor) will likely benefit more from this weapon by maximizing its proc. Genshin Impact is available via its official website.

Over two weeks ago, developer Remedy Entertainment unveiled its first trailer for Alan Wake Remastered, an updated rerelease of the 2010 cult classic. The remaster certainly appeared faithful to the original game. Although, fans of that initial release likely already noticed several visual differences and upgrades when analyzing the trailer more closely. To the average player, however, the remaster may not look that much different from the original, which makes sense considering that Alan Wake is a decade-old game that has not seen a rerelease up until now. Having said that, a recently posted comparison trailer for Alan Wake Remastered clearly shows that the rerelease changes much more than just the resolution. For most viewers, the new character model for the titular protagonist represents the most obvious visual change compared to the original. Remedy Entertainment Creative Director Sam Lake specifically mentioned the new character model back when the game’s first trailer came out, and the new comparison trailer makes this change more evident than ever. A remarkably different image but the differences do not end there. In general, the lighting has seen a massive upgrade, as the contrast between light and shadow looks much more noticeable and natural than it used to. The colors also look noticeably more vivid, although not to the point where the environments lose their dark, melancholy edge. The remaster does quite a bit to smooth out the rough aspects of the original aesthetic and make the image less grimy, which may either please or disappoint some fans depending on their perspective. Ultimately, the new comparison trailer for Alan Wake Remastered should dispel any notion that Remedy Entertainment is not putting its all into updating the game for a modern audience, at least visually. Hopefully, the developers put the same amount of work into preserving the quality of the gameplay, as an alarming number of remasters have not fared so well in this regard.

It’s surprising to see Actraiser return after all these years. The original game launched in the West nearly 30 years ago and the series has mostly lain dormant since a sequel in 1993. Granted, the developer behind the series closed up shop a long time ago. Enter Actraiser Renaissance, which sets out to remaster the original game. At least, that’s what it claims to do. In reality, this is more of a complete remake than a remaster, even if it sticks much closer in some places than many remakes would end up doing. But the question stands: is Actraiser Renaissance worth it? If you’re not familiar with the original, it’s a god game where you play as a god who oversees and helps direct people in settlements. The game is a mixture of side-scrolling stages and overhead sections where you guide the settlers towards growth and safety. You could call it part action game and part RTS, although the RTS mechanics are far too simple for the latter to be truly appropriate. Surprisingly, the RTS stuff is massively bolstered in Actraiser Renaissance, often to its detriment more than anything else. Simply put, this is a longer, more involved game that takes the original’s structure and makes it pretty uneven. The earlier version of the game is eager to divide itself between sidescrolling levels and the god game management aspects. The sidescrolling is similar here, albeit totally revamped. The combat is more complex, adding additional moves, such as upward and downward strikes. You can now backdash. It feels good, but there simply isn’t much of it, even if some extremely short missions were added here and there to make sure you don’t forget it exists. There are a lot of quests now to grow your settlements. But Actraiser Renaissance doesn’t let you do most of the things similar games do. Most structures and actions are accomplished automatically by the settlers. Under siege What’s weird is that there are things they just can’t do. As settlements grow, their level increases, but settlers in Actraiser Renaissance can’t upgrade what they build, requiring you to destroy the old ones to get them to build entirely new ones. You fly around in the overworld as an angel to facilitate this. The only thing you can build are guardhouses. This stuff is fine, if a little basic compared to similar games. But problems crop up with the game’s main new feature. Enemies can now siege your settlements, and despite the fact that you can control an angel to fight enemies with a bow during normal sections, during sieges this is totally absent for no good reason. You can still use miracles to damage them, but that uses up SP and you can only get that if workshops make it during these sections. Instead, you need to rely on that settlement’s hero and hope you’ve placed guardhouses in the right place. You can tell the hero where to go, but they’ll walk right past enemies enroute. Honestly, I hate these sections. I think they kind of ruin Actraiser Renaissance, as they’re basically tower defense sections where you can barely do anything. I feel like this remake oversteps its bounds and damages what was so great about the original game. If you lose these sieges, all you can do is move your guardhouses around and hope they fare better next time. You can also put down palisades to block enemy movement temporarily, but they’re only somewhat useful. I’d understand including sieges if your options had been significantly deepened, but they really haven’t been. On top of that, while the game’s visuals are high resolution and the character artwork is high quality, the levels and overworld are made with derpy-looking pre-rendered graphics that, to me at least, look a good deal worse than the original game . It almost looks like a mobile game. To put that into context, they went to remake a three-decade-old game and made it uglier. I don’t get it at all. Actraiser Renaissance definitely still has some charms here and there, but I’d rather replay the original game than this one. It’s got more content, sure, but that isn’t always the right choice. It’s not worth it for me, although series fans will simply be glad that it’s been given a new lease on life.

It’s surprising to see Actraiser return after all these years. The original game launched in the West nearly 30 years

Nintendo had a little something for everyone during its Nintendo Direct yesterday. The company has championed mini online digital presentations, usually taking about 30 minutes to showcase upcoming projects. Yesterday’s event was no different, offering up new titles in the works. One standout from the event was a surprise remake of the 1991 SNES game, ActRaiser. What’s even more surprising is that the remake in question, Actraiser Renaissance, has also launched on PC. The recent revival for the 16-bit classic does have some reasoning behind it. The upgraded version has arrived in time to celebrate the 30th anniversary of its original release (that was only, like, 10 years ago, right?). To add to the festivities, if you purchase Actraiser Renaissance for PC on Steam before November 1, you’ll get a few goodies to accompany your trip down memory lane. Purchasing before the November date will grant you a bonus wallpaper and mini soundtrack that includes five songs. It’s unclear as to what songs are included, though the trailer boasts both original and re-arranged tracks from Yuzo Koshiro. Koshiro composed the music for both ActRaiser and ActRaiser 2 among many other works in the early years of gaming, including Streets of Rage. More than just good looks For those curious, there is more to the remaster than just a few reworked tracks and visuals. There are new magic abilities, attack/movement options, and an auto-save feature so you don’t lose progress on your precious settlement. There are also a number of reworked portions to the simulation aspects, including “new region and developmental stages for cities.” Actraiser Renaissance is currently available on Steam for $29.99 USD. And for those curious, Square Enix both published and co-developed it alongside Sonic Power out of Japan. At least now you won’t have to settle for a spiritual successor. Along with the Actraiser remake, the Castlevania Advance Collection was also revealed during the Nintendo Direct and is available now on PC.

Not much has been heard about the Perfect Dark reboot since it was announced back in December of last year. But some more information has just come out courtesy of the developer, The Initiative. While no game details were teased, the developer announced that Perfect Dark will be co-developed by Crystal Dynamics. The company made the first two Tomb Raider reboots and, most recently, Marvel’s Avengers. This announcement dropped alongside an image of Joanna Dark shooting a dude while apparently holding a second dude hostage. She’s so good at killing people, isn’t she? The Perfect Dark series hasn’t had a new entry since 2005’s Perfect Dark Zero, which acted as a launch title for the Xbox 360. Fan reaction was on the negative side, as the game was missing so much of what fans loved about the original . Rare never released a follow-up. Of course, a remastered version of the original game was released on Xbox Live Arcade in 2010. This version completely retextured the game, as well as included brand new models for characters and weapons. It was included in Rare Replay, and I’m still mad about that not ever getting a PC version. I may actually die mad about that. That’s gonna be a long list, regardless. Perfect Dark will be co-developed by Crystal Dynamics The Initiative was founded in 2018, and Perfect Dark is the only thing it has worked on. The studio features the director of both Crystal Dynamics’ Tomb Raider reboots, so it’s not the biggest shock that this particular band is getting back together. Of course, this makes me wonder what this means for Crystal Dynamics as a whole, as this is the first time in a while that the studio hasn’t been working with Square Enix. We’ll have more on the game as information is known, and I’ll continue to be mad about Rare Replay. Deal? Deal.

FIST: Forged in Shadow Torch made some waves when it launched on PlayStation consoles just a couple of weeks ago, so the PC release would have to happen soon. Technically, we are still waiting, but it’s apparently not going to be a long wait. The game’s Twitter page tweeted that FIST: Forged in Shadow Torch will release on PC in October via Steam and Epic Games Store. There’s no concrete date yet, so we’ll have to keep our rabbit ear to the ground to suss out when exactly PC players will be able to jump into the shadows. Torch. What does that even mean? FIST: Forged in Shadow Torch tells the story of a rabbit person named Rayton. Our hero was once a soldier in a war against the Machine Legion, which invaded Torch City, the game’s setting. When Rayton’s friend is arrested by the machines, he decides that enough is enough, and he straps on his titular mechanical fist to punch the ever-loving crap out of all things metallic. As he beats hundreds of enemies senseless, he learns that the current events are even more complicated and non-punchy than he could have possibly imagined. FIST: Forged in Shadow Torch is getting a PC release soon The game was developed by Shanghai-based TiGames, and is its second title. The developer’s first was Ancient Amuletor, a VR tower defense game that was released back in 2017. FIST: Forged in Shadow Torch, conversely, is a Metroid-like with plenty of interconnected areas to explore. The game features puzzles in addition to the combat and exploration, so it seems like a fairly rounded experience. The game’s PS5 release currently has an 81 on Metacritic out of 27 reviews, so it appears to be well liked. We’ll have more for you as the game gets closer to release, as I know how we’re all itching to start indiscriminately punching things. What do you mean that’s just me?

It was rumored ahead of yesterday’s Nintendo Direct that all the Castelvania games on the Game Boy Advance would be re-released. After it got the official announcement, I thought it would be a good chance to relive these excellent games on my Switch. But lo and behold, my little Zelda box might get a little dustier. Castlevania Advance Collection had been in the works for PC via Steam as well. And, wouldn’t you know it? The game is already available for a reasonable sum of $19.99 USD. Hell, Castelvania: Aria of Sorrow is worth that alone. I’ve missed that game. I once let someone borrow it and I never got it back. The collection includes four of the best Castlevania games ever made. Konami went back to the old formula, starting with Circle of the Moon in 2001. Along with that game, the collection also features Castlevania: Harmony of Dissonance, the very excellent Castlevania: Aria of Sorrow, and the much beloved Castlevania: Dracula X. All of the previous games, save for Dracula X, were released on the Game Boy Advance. Dracula X is more of a bonus game. It’s the reimagining of Castlevania: Rondo of Blood, first released on PC Engine CD (aka, TurboGrafx-16) before getting ported as Dracula X for the Super Nintendo in 1995, and the PlayStation Portable in 2007. Cruz-ing back into our hearts The games are shining examples of the series. Among the Castlevania Advance Collection, really the only one that received some divisive critique is Harmony of Dissonance. And that one isn’t even all that bad (it’s pretty good, as I recall). For purists, the best game in the collection is likely a toss-up between Dracula X and Aria of Sorrow. For me, though, it’s the latter, which introduced the new protagonist Soma Cruz. It also took place in the year 2035, the first set in the near future. Castlevania Advance Collection brings to PC more than the games, however. The collection includes a gallery with never-seen-before artwork, a music player, a quick save/load system, a rewind, and a replay option to record runs. It’s a nice collection, all in all. You’d be batty not to be interested.

With the arrival of Fortnite Season 8 came a range of new content. This includes new NPCs, the addition of The Sideways, donation boards allowing players to vote on in-game changes, and more. However, Epic Games appears to be continuing their pattern of adding new crossovers into the battle royale. Already, the Carnage skin has made its way into the Season 8 battle pass. In order to unlock the Carnage skin and accessories, you must reach page 10. As soon as the Carnage skin arrived, it felt like a matter of time before another Venom skin made its way into Fortnite. We did not have to wait long for that to happen, as the Venom and Eddie Brock skin has been added to the Fortnite in-game store. Previously, a Venom skin was already released for Fortnite. The new skin is based on the upcoming film, Venom: Let There Be Carnage. However, the Eddie Brock outfit allows you to experience the human side of the character. Then, you can activate the Venom Unleashed emote to transform into Venom. Notably, if you prefer to begin the match as Venom, you can select the skin from your locker. Fortnite is not short of Venom cosmetics The Eddie Brock outfit is available individually or as a part of the Venom bundle. The bundle also features cosmetics such as the Symbiote Scythe pickaxe and returning Venom items. Therefore, if you already own items from a previous Venom bundle, the new bundle will be available to you at a lower cost. The Fortnite Eddie Brock and Venom crossover will definitely be welcomed by fans of the superhero. It will be interesting to see what crossovers Epic Games has in store for us next. In the meantime, you can fight opponents around the island switching between Eddie Brock and Venom, in the leadup to Venom: Let There Be Carnage.

Sable offers an entire world of things to explore, but it doesn’t tell you everything upfront. Honestly, you should go in blind, as simply exploring and logically looking around empty spaces on your map will often give you enough of an idea to get around. But if you’re the type of person who likes to have a better idea of ​​what they’re in for, I’ve whipped up some quick tips for you to more easily get your bearings in Sable. Rev up your hoverbike and put on your favorite pants, because it’s time to glide through the wasteland. The worms are your stamina You’ll see these little guys dancing around all over the place. They’re called Chum Eggs, and they’re how you increase your maximum stamina in Sable. Always prioritize collecting them. They can be returned to the Chum Queen in the Western section of the region you entered immediately after you finished the tutorial. Just look at the horizon and you pretty much can’t miss it. Simply head inside at the base (don’t try to climb it) and you’ll find the Queen inside. Every time you turn in her required number of eggs, you’ll get 50% of your starting stamina added to the pool. Most quests can be found in settlements The majority of Sable’s quests will obviously be where the people are. There are several major settlements, each with their own quests on offer. You’ll find them as long as you thoroughly search around, plus some are pretty hard to miss considering their size. When it comes to getting badges, completing quests is your best bet, so it’s a good idea to keep those in mind. You can also find any quest items without actually taking on said quest, so you can even turn in a quest immediately after accepting it if you’ve already found what the quest giver was looking for. Look to the balloons You can buy a map for each of Sable’s six main regions. Doing this isn’t all that important, as it just colors in the landscape on your map. What is horribly useful is that you can fast travel to these sections and talk to the cartographers there. They’ll tell you all about a region’s main points of interest, plus, you’ll even be able to see many of these from up high on the balloons. Simply put, when you find a region’s balloon, you gain ready access to important information and a great vantage point. Fast travel treks Any time you see a location’s name show up on screen while playing Sable, it gets added to your map. All you need to do is select the icon and you can fast travel right to it along with your bike. As such, you’ll definitely want to keep exploring a place until the name pops up if you’re planning on heading elsewhere. Otherwise, you’ll need to find the location all over again. There are more badges than you need You need three badges to get a mask in Sable, but that doesn’t mean that there are only three of each badge. Even if you miss out on some quests, you can still find enough badges. For instance, the guard badge is one of the game’s freebies. You can get three from a single character as long as you track her down as she changes locations. You’ll find her at the very first settlement and she even tells you where she’s going. But there are more guard badges to get ahold of than just her three. Final Sable tips: Some money and scrap respawns If you’re worried about running out of money, well, don’t worry so much. After a certain amount of time has passed, the contents of certain areas will refill themselves. This is especially important when it comes to downed ships, which often have multiple chests and scrap containers to loot. If you’re running low, consider making your way back to these places after a while. Plus, selling off enough scrap will get you three badges you can use to get a mask, and this game is all about new wearable items. That’s all for our Sable tips. Just keep your eyes peeled and you’ll get where you’re going. The point of the game is the journey, after all.

CEO organizers dropped some reassuring news for fans of fighting games today. For those that don’t know, CEO, or Community Effort Orlando, is a yearly fighting game tournament that takes place in Florida. Being one of the biggest events of its kind in the country, it attracts competitors and spectators from all over the world. So, naturally, when the event was scheduled to return this year after skipping 2020 because, well, 2020, some were understandably concerned. To assess some of those concerns, today it was announced on CEO’s Twitter page that CEO 2021 will require proof of vaccination or a negative COVID test result for entry. As explained in the updated policies page on the CEO website, when the event was announced back in June the recent rollout of vaccines had things looking better. Unfortunately, Florida is one of the worst states in the country for COVID outbreaks, contributing for a large portion of cases and deaths in the country on its own. While cases have been decreasing very slightly only just recently, the numbers are still unsettlingly highly. With other events going the route of requiring vaccinations, the decision seemed appropriate for CEO as well. One thing to keep in mind are the reports that Florida Governor Ron DeSantis has threatened businesses with fining them for providing these sorts of precautions. But, thankfully, CEO is a private event where guests are voluntarily invited to attend, and does not give a provided service. In other words, the CEO can decide what is best for its attendees. The breakdown to get in on the beatdowns “Proof of vaccination” constitutes either your physical COVID-19 vaccination card, a copy or a photograph of it, accompanied by your ID to get your badge. If, for whatever reason, you are unvaccinated, a negative COVID test administered within 72 hours of the first day of the event, December 13, is required. This is something already needed for international travel. Attempting to forge these documents or results, as well as giving staff any grief over these requirements, will result in a swift removal from the event. Not to mention it could become a lifetime ban from CEO as well. Hired security will also be on staff as well to check badges and ensure everyone’s safety. Not only that, but attendees will also be given a welcome bag of a mask, hand sanitizer, and more. Personally, I think the welcome bag is a great idea. With these precautions, and CEO’s already reduced capacity, Alex Jebailey (the head of CEO) and all of the CEO staff are doing what they can to ensure people’s safety. To top off the good news, brackets for the various tournaments will begin at noon on December 13. That’s right, no more 9 AM brackets (hallelujah!). If you have ever attended a major fighting game tournament before, you know how much of a great thing that is.

It may seem easy to write developer Carry Castle’s Source of Madness off as yet another side-scrolling rogue-lite action game. But as multiple recent releases have proven, the genre still has plenty of room for further expansion. In Source of Madness’s case, it utilizes a machine-learning AI to craft unique monsters for each playthrough, which ensures that players always have something new to fight. This mechanic certainly makes the game stand out among its contemporaries. It also helps that the title sports a macabre Lovecraftian aesthetic that appropriately contextualizes the nearly endless number of disturbing monster types. Those who enjoy the core premise of Source of Madness will likely become happy to hear that the game arrived on Steam Early Access just today. According to a press release, the Early Access version of Source of Madness will go by the name of “At the Tower Madness,” and it will feature “the complete first Act of the game.” This section of the game contains five distinct biomes for the player to roam around in. Additionally, the Early Access allows players to pick one of two classes, Pyromancer or Generalist, and it features two major bosses that will attempt to impede players on their journey. Giving players reasons to come back to the Early Access period, Carry Castle will gradually add new updates to the game to both shake things up and address player feedback. The next update, “They Hide in the Shadows,” will become available on September 27 and include a new Geomancer class as well as “additional monster variations.” The October 11 update, “Reckoning,” will implement a sixth explorable biome. More will be revealed about the October 25 update upon launch. The Early Access release of Source of Madness provides the perfect opportunity for players to test the game out, see if it clicks, and provide valuable feedback about areas that need improvement. Hopefully, by the time the full game comes out, it will be just as polished and fun as it needs to be.

The indie gaming scene has seen plenty of 2D action Metroidvanias over the years, to the point where some may have grown tired of seeing them. Ultimately, though, as long as these kinds of games keep impressing audiences and maintaining a consistent bar of quality, then indie developers have no reason to abandon the genre altogether. Just yesterday, publisher Iceberg Interactive and developer Muro Studios unveiled Doomblade, a 2D Metroidvania with a great deal of artistic flair. The debut trailer that accompanied this announcement showcases the grim presentation and flashy gameplay of Doomblade in all their glory. In full the trailer, the voice of the titular Doomblade weapon ominously talks the player character into wielding it and states that they “can grow strong” together. The trailer shows the basics of environmental exploration and combat, and it highlights some of the versatile abilities that players will obtain throughout the adventure. A tense metal track starts to play around halfway through the trailer as the player character cuts down strange creatures and intimidating bosses. A weapon’s bloodthirsty revenge According to the Steam page, Doomblade puts players in control of Gloom Girl, “the last of the Gloomfolk” who resides “in the Lowland caves.” She soon stumbles across Doomblade, a living sword “hellbent on escape after eons in chains.” Soon after she grabs hold of it, they set off on an adventure to defeat the Dread Lords that locked up the Doomblade in the first place. To do so, they must restore the Doomblade’s lost powers, which reside in a series of statues scattered across the underground. The trailer certainly makes Doomblade seem like a compelling game in its own right, and dedicated fans of Metroidvanias will likely want to keep their eye on it. So far, the game has no definitive release date, as the Steam page states that the game will come out “when the chains are broken.” Posted in NewsVideos Tagged with DoombladeMuro Studios ShareTweetPinShare 0 Daniel PinheiroDaniel is a games journalist who is deeply passionate about the medium and the impact it can have on our lives.

The debut project of developer Melting Parrot, Dap, looks like an experience that few others can compare to. Dap has been described as “Pikmin meets Mononoke” and while gameplay footage certainly confirms the validity of that description, it does not fully capture everything that makes the game unique. It combines some of the basic features of those two works while leaning heavily on horror elements, resulting in an enchanting yet deeply unsettling vibe. Thankfully, those interested in playing Dap can do so as soon as next week, when it releases on Sept. 29. Trailers for Dap do an admirable job at depicting the beautiful, twisted atmosphere that players can expect once they pick the game up. The gritty-looking pixel art has a hand-drawn quality to it that makes it stand out, and the whole game world has a shadowy filter that sells its otherworldly nature. The trailers attempt to unnerve the viewer, as they include plenty of jarring jump-cuts, sudden spikes in volume, and disturbing imagery. A macabre premise According to the game’s Steam page, Dap sees players “gathering and protecting a pack of fragile creatures called Daps” in a “hostile and corrupted world.” Players have to deal with a threat that “has descended onto the forest – something incomprehensible, sinister, slithering in from a crack in reality.” “Fighting off threats” and “solving puzzles” will help guide the player’s team of Daps back home, and the Daps themselves help greatly in accomplishing these goals. A strange infection threatens to transform the Daps into terrifying enemies, so players must stay on the move and remain careful in certain areas to prevent this from happening. Since Dap will be available on online storefronts by the end of next week, players will not have to wait too long to see how successful Melting Parrot’s first outing will be. Everything revealed so far certainly looks promising, so hopefully, this off-kilter adventure will live up to expectations and then some.

[Update – September 20 @ 5:30 PM ET]: ATLUS Japan posted a new video featuring Morgana, celebrating the anniversary with some small updates. An official English website was created for the anniversary, as well as a new updated online store for merchandise on the way (with worldwide shipping!) All anime adaptations of Persona will be available for streaming in Japan (no news for other regions yet), and a special orchestra concert will be held on November 21 featuring the Persona 5 vocalist Lyn. More news was teased for December, so we’ll have to wait until then. The original story, published on September 15, is as follows: Everyone, gather around in the Velvet Room. Developer Atlus is teasing a new Persona announcement coming soon in celebration of its 25-year anniversary. Of course, no one knows what Atlus intends to reveal in a few days’ time, but it’s definitely an exciting time to be a Persona fan. The anniversary is coming up in just five days, on September 20. We can expect some news ranging from game-changing (Persona 6, anyone?) or perhaps nothing too special at all. After all, Atlus already announced that there were seven new Persona projects in the pipeline earlier this year. If this is the start of a long string of announcements, we may have to wait a bit longer for the elusive Persona 6. That said, we’re definitely getting something for sure. A major milestone Persona fans are probably having a blast dissecting all the potential rumors and possible new projects Atlus has in store. The official Japanese Twitter account tweeted out for fans to keep their eyes peeled for Persona news, with a translation courtesy of the Persona-dedicated news site Persona Central. “Celebrating the 5th anniversary since the release of Persona 5 in Japan, the Persona Twitter account says to keep your eyes peeled for more from Morgana and the rest of the Phantom Thieves while using the Persona 25th Anniversary hashtag,” the tweet reads, according to Persona Central’s translation. For those in favor of a possible Persona 6 announcement, it is that time of year. Persona 5 was announced back in November 2013, five years after the original Persona 4 was released. It’s now been nearly five years since the original Japanese release of Persona 5, so a new announcement would be fitting. (For what it’s worth, a Persona 6 announcement is definitely happening based on the official promotional material. It’s just a matter of when.) There are two missing game posters here. All the games pictured above are mainline games. Rumor has it… There were some other, more questionable leaks earlier in the year. One of those rumors was a potential Persona 4 Arena Ultimax remaster, which was a popular fighting game with characters from both Persona 3 and Persona 4. There’s not much to this leak, unfortunately. According to Nintendo Life, the leaker correctly predicted Metroid Dread and Sonic & Knuckles, but it’s still questionable. Additionally, a customer survey posted earlier this year indicated the possibility of more PC ports. Other games in the Megami Tensei universe like Persona 4 Golden, Persona 5 Strikers, and Shin Megami Tensei III Nocturne HD Remaster have been released on Steam. The survey even explores the possibility for full remakes of Revelations: Persona and the Persona 2 duology, though those are less likely. Unfortunately, there’s nothing else to go off of that hasn’t already been explored. There are still some unused website domains registered a while back (Cheers, ComicBook). But ultimately, there’s nothing else we can do except wait for the announcements to roll in. Additionally, new promo art also advertised Persona 5’s fifth anniversary, so we may just see another Persona 5 spin-off like Strikers. Persona’s 25th anniversary is on September 20, so expect the first announcement sometime around then.

The Call of Duty: Vanguard beta is live, giving fans a taste of the upcoming title. There are a total of four multiplayer featured, as well as classic modes like Team Deathmatch, and the new mode, Patrol. Also, the beta features all three combat pacing options, allowing you to play at your preferred pace. Tactical pacing is the classic 6v6 that Call of Duty fans know and love. If you select assault pacing, you will play against more targets, still with enough breathing room. Blitz pacing will see the intensity bumped up and player counts hitting between 28 and 48 players. Although the early access beta for PC began on September 16, the open beta didn’t kick off until September 18. Unfortunately, the Vanguard beta has introduced something that CoD fans have become all too familiar with, hackers. Hackers are already in the Vanguard beta Many players have been encountering hackers across all maps and modes. It appears hackers are using cheats such as aimbots to shoot opponents through walls. Understandably, this is ruining the experience for anyone that encounters them. In addition, one player was seen using the Damascus camo on their weapon already, which is a mastery camo. Although this could be a visual bug, the prominence of hackers has left players suspicious that the camo is yet another hack. At the time of writing, Sledgehammer Games is yet to respond to hackers running rampant on the CoD: Vanguard beta. Call of Duty: Warzone players know hackers all too well. With Vanguard integration coming soon, they’ll be hoping hackers are less frequent. Apart from the new Vanguard content coming to the battle royale, the integration will see the roll out of an anti-cheat system. We can only hope that there are plans in place to release an anti-cheat for Call of Duty: Vanguard’s multiplayer when it launches on November 5.
