The Road to the Erdtree — манга по мотивам Elden Ring, новые выпуски которой появляются каждый месяц.

Кажется, поклонники его прекрасно понимают: в комментариях Тобите желают хорошего отдыха, говорят, что тоже с нетерпением ждут Shadow of the Erdtree и надеются, что дополнение доберётся до манги.

Страница из нового выпуска The Road to the Erdtree… …И сообщение о том, что манга встаёт на паузу из-за Shadow of the Erdtree.

В беседе с порталом VG247 продюсер Чжэюй Ли (Zheyu Li) заявил, что хотел бы выпустить экшен-RPG на большем количестве платформ.

Несмотря на эти вводные Чжэюй Ли с энтузиазмом относится к идее портирования Zenless Zone Zero на все устройства, включая консоли Nintendo и Microsoft.

В настоящее время первостепенной задачей для команды является подготовка ZZZ к запуску на уже подтверждённых платформах.

Этого хватило, чтобы общая рыночная стоимость фирмы взяла новую высоту и обеспечила ей звание самой дорогой компании в мире.

Всего пару недель назад NVIDIA сместила Apple (3,29 триллиона долларов) со второй строчки, а теперь отняла лидерство у Microsoft (3,32 триллиона долларов).

В 2024 году стоимость его акций взлетела на 170 %, а планку в 2 триллиона долларов капитализации NVIDIA взяла всего четыре месяца назад.

Чёрным цветом отмечен путь NVIDIA в сравнении с Apple (синий) и Microsoft (розовый).

По мнению аналитика Wedbush Securities Дэниела Айвза (Daniel Ives), уже в следующей году NVIDIA, Apple и Microsoft могут перешагнуть отметку в 4 триллиона капитализации.

В недавнем интервью президент FromSoftware Хидэтака Миядзаки (Hidetaka Miyazaki) высказался о волне увольнений, которая накрыла индустрию.

Автор Elden Ring заявил, что не допустит масштабных сокращений в рядах своей студии.

Бизнесмен запомнился общественности среди прочего тем, что в кризисные времена отказался от 50 % своей заработной платы, чтобы компания смогла протянуть и не увольнять множество специалистов.

Я согласен с этим и думаю, что в нашей материнской компании Kadokawa это тоже понимают.

И хотя мы не можем знать будущее на все 100 %, но я могу сказать, что массовых увольнений в компании не будет, пока я за неё отвечаю.

Вероятно, новости раскроют уже послезавтра:Beyond Good & Evil: 20th Anniversary Edition станет частью шоу Limited Run Games Showcase.

Limited Run Games Showcase пройдёт 20 июня в 21:00 по Москве.

Компания Limited Run Games специализируется на физических версиях любимых в народе игр, поэтому, скорее всего, нам покажут ещё и специальное издание Beyond Good & Evil.

Не хуже оригинала — отзывы о DLC для Elden Ring
Не хуже оригинала — отзывы о DLC для Elden Ring Не хуже оригинала — отзывы о DLC для Elden Ring

Shadow of the Erdtree не только дополняет лор и геймплейные механики Elden Ring, но и обогащает игру атмосферным повествованием и выверенным дизайном мире.

На выходе получилось одно из лучших произведений FromSoftware, вобравшее в себя все особенности Elden Ring и даже больше.

Мне и радостно и грустно от того, что Shadow of the Erdtree — первое и последнее дополнение для Elden Ring.

Как бы то ни было, аддон определённо заслуживает внимания, если вы жаждете ещё больше Elden Ring.

Это крупное дополнение вводит в и без того суровую Elden Ring ещё больше прекрасной жестокости и ролевой бойни.

Hobbit life sim Tales Of The Shire is so jolly and joyful it creeps the hell out of me Hobbit life sim Tales Of The Shire is so jolly and joyful it creeps the hell out of me

Tales Of The Shire unfolds in a world without shadow.

Tales Of The Shire is every bit the extraordinarily happy Hobbit life sim it appears to be.

Perhaps the sunshine is bait, and the second half of the game consists of The Scouring of the Shire.

I don’t get the sense that the game’s writing will explore the gossipy, back-biting side of Hobbit society either, but again, fingers crossed.

There are three things I especially like about Tales Of The Shire as a Hobbity Stardew Valley.

Like many I’m sure, I have extremely fond memories of the original Fallout games, 2 especially.

And I do think we want [the games] to load up and run well," says Howard.

"The rest of it… I could argue that some of the charm of games from that era and the original Fallout is a little bit of that age.

This is a very long way to say “we don’t want to remake the mission where you become a fluffer at a porn studio and possibly catch an STD,” but I appreciate the sentiment.

Elsewhere in the interview, Howard spoke about the future of Starfield DLCs after Shattered Space releases - they’re planning on at least one more.

When I wrote our Still Wakes The Deep review I mentioned the true-to-life Scottish slang used by the oil rig workers of this North Sea horror.

It was wonderful, but all these slang terms were being translated in the subtitles for some reason.

"For my American friends - [Still Wakes The Deep] detects your system locale and will default to our 'International English' subtitles," says lead designer Rob McLachlan of The Chinese Room in a post on Xitter.

"If you’re not feart of a little Scots slang in your life, please switch to English (UK) for a more authentic experience!"

I recommend leaning fully into that with the subtitles too, for a full dose of weans, ayes, and fuds.

If there's one thing that really gets me going, it's a game devoid of happiness and cheer.

In keeping with many Japanese teen stories you're a totally 'average' guy, Takumi Sumino, who lives in Tokyo.

There's the promise of spending time with your pals to "deepen bonds" or to craft them gifts so you can deepen them even further.

Demons ranging from cute little orbs to levitating dragons that, going by the trailer, you can bash with a motorbike.

Square Enix are remaking a classic 90s RPG about defending an empire from a bunch of spiteful ancient heroes Square Enix are remaking a classic 90s RPG about defending an empire from a bunch of spiteful ancient heroes

Japanese role-playing game enthusiasts are eating good this week, as Square Enix announce a 3D remake for 1993's Romancing SaGa 2: Revenge Of The Seven.

It's out 24th October 2024, and springs from the turbulent brains of the team behind 2020's Trials of Mana remake, which was well-received.

There's a strategy game element in the shape of "a devoted Royal Court overseeing the economy, technology, city construction, and magic".

There's probably scope for a Square Enix role-playing game plotline about ancient Squaresoft or Enix RPGs returning from another dimension to vengefully smother brand new Square Enix RPGs at birth.

That said, the original Revenge Of The Seven never officially released…

American Truck Simulator already has in-development DLCs which will see its 18-wheelers head to Arkansas and Missouri, but SCS Software have also commenced building a third: Iowa.

Naturally I had to Google this, and I have learned that Iowa is home to the largest: garden gnome, bull statue, starberry statue, and Cheeto (not a statue).

Those are my abiding memory of riding across Iowa on a train fifteen or so years ago.

Battle Aces is a fast and furious mechabug RTS from Blizzard talent that turns Starcraft into a game of cards Battle Aces is a fast and furious mechabug RTS from Blizzard talent that turns Starcraft into a game of cards

Let’s start by addressing that last complaint: the units of Battle Aces have immense personality.

1 of 2 AttributionAs for the overall big "vision" stuff, I think Battle Aces has a shot at jogging the RTS out of its rut, though it does have precedents - not least in the endless world of strategy game modding.

In Battle Aces you are a drone operator encased in a bubble base at one end of the map.

Whether you do or don't care about the story, it's an undeniable fact that Elden Ring: Shadow Of The Erdtree is a brilliant expansion.

It swung around at just the right time for me personally, as someone who reached the Elden Ring exhaustion point thanks to its vastness.

But I'm happy Elden Ring is done and it's a reminder that I'd like FromSoftware to move Souls in a different direction.

I can recall Bloodborne and Dark Souls as neat packages of horror, but Elden Ring and Erdtree?

Valve have helpfully shared a list of the most played Steam demos during this latest, gravest round of next festivity, and it covers a reasonable range.

Also, there's a game about mopping dungeons that appeals strongly to my Dungeon Meshi-watching sensibilities.

The big-bottomed craft-me-bang in question is Once Human, which cuts you loose upon an Earth infested with Stardust.

Number two on the list is Level Zero: Extraction, which is kind of PvP GTFO for squads of three.

Is Star Wars: The Acolyte just an elaborate Force choke origin story? Is Star Wars: The Acolyte just an elaborate Force choke origin story?

In fact, I’m getting worried that The Acolyte might just be an elaborate origin story for the Force choke.

note: This story contains spoilers for Star Wars: The Acolyte episode 4, as well as wild, reckless speculation about the rest of the season.]

Because Force choking is a singular technique in the Star Wars canon, an act of such clear malice and personalized cruelty that no other Force move could possibly match.

But consider the kind of connections Star Wars has spent the last decade making.

Of course, this isn’t a new problem to Star Wars, and it didn’t start with Disney’s entries.

“So right away, I was pitching: ‘What if Riley has a crush on a video game character?

His gestures and his walk are a bit janky and stilted, just like an old video game.

Even though he’s an epic warrior, he’s limited by whatever retro video game he hails from.

There’s a... phantom menace... lurking in this week’s Acolyte There’s a... phantom menace... lurking in this week’s Acolyte

Episode 4 gave those in the know a whopper: Plo Koon.

Plo Koon, the Kel Dor Jedi known for his chic oxygen mask, first appeared in scenes of the Jedi council in Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace and grew into a fan favorite when he took on an action role in Star Wars: The Clone Wars.

His “personal life” section on Wookieepedia is entirely facts about his Plo Koon collectibles.

Despite him being one or two levels removed from a Glup Shitto, Dave Filoni is all in on Plo Koon.

I believe Filoni when he says he has talked extensively about Plo Koon with George Lucas.

Keef Girgo!

—Pete VolkThe Master is... Jar Jar BinksI’ve never been a fan of the Sith Lord Jar Jar theory, but if Lucasfilm is going to do it, this is the moment.

For those who don’t know, a fan theory on Reddit kicked off the idea that maybe Jar Jar Binks wasn’t quite who he portrayed himself to be.

Dear TV writers: Please stop being weird about pronouns
Dear TV writers: Please stop being weird about pronouns Dear TV writers: Please stop being weird about pronouns

In the fourth episode of The Acolyte, Osha (Amandla Stenberg) meets some new Jedi and Jedi-affiliated friends.

In The Acolyte, Osha only asks about Bazil’s pronouns, not those of any of the other people she meets.

It’s very easy to establish characters’ pronouns by having other characters use those pronouns when speaking about them.

Even Star Trek: Discovery, a show that largely had thoughtful and committed queer representation and characters, stumbled with this during its recently aired final season.

When characters are only doing so to characters who are markedly, visibly different — even straight-up animals, in Bazil’s case — it’s weird!

Echoes of Wisdom’s swordless Zelda is not about what’s canon — it’s about good gameplay
Echoes of Wisdom’s swordless Zelda is not about what’s canon — it’s about good gameplay Echoes of Wisdom’s swordless Zelda is not about what’s canon — it’s about good gameplay

It’s big, big news that in the Zelda game announced during Tuesday’s Nintendo Direct — The Legend of Zelda: Echoes of Wisdom — players will assume control of Princess Zelda rather than Link.

But there’s one key point of intrigue: In Echoes, Aonuma said Zelda doesn’t fight with a sword — ever.

But I have a hunch that it isn’t just her character’s canon that kept Aonuma from giving her a sword in Echoes.

Sure, it’s true that some aspects of other Zelda tales would fall apart if suddenly Zelda were a master of swordplay.

And she certainly can’t use the Master Sword, which famously only works if Link wields it.

The first Smile was a pretty good horror movie and a pretty massive hit.

Thankfully, the first trailer for Smile 2, the series’ big-budget sequel, is here to make good on the original’s marketing stunt.

Smile relied mostly on intimate, small-scale scares and the creepy idea that the person you’re talking to could be infected by the Smile curse without you even knowing it.

Of course, smiles start to creep through the crowd and her fans without any explanation, and violence follows.

Smile 2 is written and directed by Parker Finn, just like the original movie, and is set for release in theaters on Oct. 18.

Princess Zelda will be a playable protagonist in a mainline Legend of Zelda game in The Legend of Zelda: Echoes of Wisdom.

Her first big foray as protagonist in a Mario game came with the 2005 Nintendo DS game Super Princess Peach.

However, 2024 has clearly brought on somewhat of a shift in the way Nintendo sees its princesses.

Princess Peach: Showtime!

Those games are now coupled with the fact that we’ve gotten one of the most important steps of all: playable Zelda.

Max is currently offering a free seven-day trial to new subscribers through June 23 — just in time to watch the June 16 premiere of the latest season of House of the Dragon.

Max doesn’t typically offer free trials, so this is a perfect opportunity to catch up on the first season of the Game of Thrones spinoff.

But there’s plenty of other essential viewing available exclusively on Max.

The annual ad-supported plan for Max is available for $99.99, but doesn’t allow for offline viewing.

However, the $169.99 ad-free annual plan allows you to download up to 30 episodes or movies to watch while you’re away from home.

Valheim: The Board Game was built off the success of Deep Rock Galactic: The Board Game, another tabletop adaptation of a popular video game that aims to keep the same vibe as the original.

With Deep Rock Galactic, it’s easier to create a one-to-one experience — a match in the video game is a round of the board game.

Valheim: The Board Game is coming to crowdfunding on Gamefound later this year.

I think of it as an adult version of Minecraft,” says Ole Steiness, lead designer of Valheim: The Board Game.

Valheim: The Board Game will be available to back on Gamefound later in 2024.

I’ve always wanted to tell a story in those 40K worlds, but it was a number of series by Dan Abnett that was my intro into street-level Warhammer.

[...] We all have the archetypes that are still there from D&D, but kind of adapted it to the Underhive and a 40K setting.

I have been playing D&D and all sorts of role-playing games for ten years and I’ve never seen anything like it.

I think it’s some of our best work, including all the stuff I’ve done at Games Workshop.

The long-awaited “HD-2D” remake of classic Enix role-playing game Dragon Quest 3 is coming to Nintendo Switch this November, publisher Square Enix announced Tuesday during a Nintendo Direct showcase.

The original Dragon Quest 3 is set before the events of the first two games in the series, so, chronologically, playing Dragon Quest 3 HD-2D first will prep you for the next two games.

Square Enix didn’t say much about what’s changing for Dragon Quest 1 & 2 HD-2D, or whether they will feature expanded narratives as Dragon Quest 3 HD-2D will, but that seems quite likely.

Dragon Quest 3 HD-2D will be released on Nov. 14 on Nintendo Switch.

Dragon Quest 1 & 2 HD-2D are due sometime in 2025.

Pixar movies profoundly changed American studio animation, ushering in the age of computer-animated features and raising the bar on animated storytelling.

The movie’s emotional end, where Woody decides to part ways with the toys and Bonnie, doesn’t hit quite as hard when we’ve almost forgotten they exist.

Unlike the other two Cars movies, Cars 2 turns the spotlight to comedic relief Mater and thrusts him into a high-stakes spy adventure.

—PRIn a way, all Pixar’s movies are fantasies, given their focus on living toys, talking animals, and grumpy monsters.

7 bizarre Easter Eggs from across the Perfect Dark series
7 bizarre Easter Eggs from across the Perfect Dark series 7 bizarre Easter Eggs from across the Perfect Dark series

Perfect Dark has been in the news quite a lot recently.

First there was the impressive gameplay reveal for the upcoming reboot at this month's Xbox Showcase and, literally yesterday, Nintendo announced that the original Perfect Dark is now available to play on Switch.

All of this Perfect Dark news got me perfectly nostalgic, so I jumped back into the original three games and put together a little list video based on some of the most bizarre (and naughty) Easter Eggs and features that Rare's series has to offer.

Give it a watch on the player above or there's the YouTube version embedded below if you'd prefer to push that one into your peepers.

With the reboot of Perfect Dark, finally shown during this year's Xbox showcase, I was thrilled to see a return to this format.

There's little doubt that the lead-up to Perfect Dark has been fraught with challenges.

Creating a new entry in the Perfect Dark series is perhaps not as simple as it may seem.

On the face of it, the original Perfect Dark is a type of shooter that largely doesn't really exist any longer.

Given the lack of an announced release date, I suspect we'll be waiting for quite a long time before Perfect Dark is ready.

The Plucky Squire, an action game with a domestic dimension hopping twist, however, probably just pipped them to the position of first, in the race to be the most joyful experience I had all week.

The Plucky Squire is a delight.

The setup here involved an opening sequence in a 2D part of The Plucky Squire, the main storybook.

What you realise, playing through The Plucky Squire, is that this must be the inimitable work of an artist - and it is.

The Plucky Squire is joyful and delightful and inventive, but it's also a game that's been made with indisputable care.

In Banana, players click on the image of a banana - or simply leave the software running - to eventually get a banana dropped into their Steam inventory.

Since Banana started gaining popularity on Steam, there has been speculation this is all some kind of scam.

However, other team members have assured the community the game is not a scam, and more content will be coming soon.

The Banana developer went on to state there is "no scamming/scam" going on, and the remaining members are currently working to update the game.

Eurogamer has reached out to members of Banana's team and Valve for further comment on the current discourse surrounding the game.

Oh and if you want to read more, you can - you can find our entire Five of the Best archive elsewhere on the site.

Side quests are part of so many gaming adventures now they're a worn trope - an expected thing.

Some games use side quests as padding, whereas others use them as vessels to deliver what the main story can't: incidental detail, world building, lore.

The question is, which of these side quests - and by "side quests" I mean those that aren't part of the main quest, somewhat obviously - are the best?

В России предложили проверять видеоигры на «формирование девиантного поведения» В России предложили проверять видеоигры на «формирование девиантного поведения»

В парламенте России посоветовали правительству усилить контроль над видеоиграми и разработать дополнительные механизмы их экспертизы.

World of TanksАвторы идеи указали, что с помощью видеоигр нередко пытаются создать негативный образ России.

В качестве примера они привели World of Tanks, в которой «российские танки всегда хуже западных и постоянно ломаются», а топовые игроки часто оказываются русофобами.

В парламенте хотят, чтобы видеоигры начали проверять на «формирование девиантного поведения и нивелирование правовой культуры среди детей и молодежи».

Играм с пропагандой предлагается запретить распространение в России.

В марте Еврокомиссия запустила расследование в отношении Apple из опасений, что корпорация нарушает закон о цифровых рынках и подавляет конкуренцию на iOS, в том числе в App Store.

Как утверждают источники Financial Times, подозрения властей подтвердились.

Однако оно будет предварительным, и Apple сможет пересмотреть свою политику до назначения наказания.

Если Apple признают виновной, пишет Financial Times, корпорации придется ежедневно платить штрафы в размере 5% от ее среднего глобального дневного оборота.

Сведения Financial Times косвенно подтверждает европейский комиссар по вопросам конкуренции Маргрет Вестагер (Margrethe Vestager).

Apple is reportedly facing $1 billion in daily fines from the European Commission over breaches of its Digital Markets Act.

This is according to a report by the Financial Times, which alleged that the EU Commission had deemed Apple not to be complying with its DMA legislation.

If found guilty, the EU Commission could fine Apple with daily fines reaching 5% of the firm's average daily turnover, which is over $1 billion.

"We're confident our plan complies with the DMA," Apple said in an earlier statement.

In March, the EU Commission began an investigation into Google, Meta, and Apple for potential DMA infringements, with Apple being investigated for steering on its App Store.

Earlier this morning, Nintendo finally did the thing and announced The Legend of Zelda: Echoes of Wisdom, a mainline Zelda game that cast the titular princess in the lead role, at its most recent Direct.

You see, despite Zelda being the namesake of the series, Link has been the protagonist of most of the franchise.

Others have taken the opportunity to show off their own fan art of the concept of a Zelda-led game.

Also, the last time there was a Zelda-led game that changed up the naming scheme…it kind of sucked.

There are already people who think Link is named Zelda because he’s the hero of the games, so naming the Zelda-led game after Link might give someone an aneurysm.

New Marvel vs. Capcom Collection Latest Game To Also Skip Xbox
New Marvel vs. Capcom Collection Latest Game To Also Skip Xbox New Marvel vs. Capcom Collection Latest Game To Also Skip Xbox

On June 18, Capcom revealed that it’s porting the beloved arcade fighter Marvel Vs. Capcom 2—as well as six other Marvel arcade games—to modern consoles.

But, the new collection won’t be released on Xbox consoles, continuing a trend that has some Xbox fans worried.

As mentioned earlier, MvCFC:AC includes Marvel Vs Capcom 2, a true fan-favorite pixel art fighting game from 2000 that hasn’t received a proper console port in over a decade.

AdvertisementAs confirmed by Capcom, the MVC Fighting Collection will only be available on PlayStation 4, Switch, and PC.

MVC Fighting Collection is far from the first game to skip Xbox in the last two years.

Dragon Quest 3 Remake Hands-On: A Classic RPG Gets A Stunning Overhaul Dragon Quest 3 Remake Hands-On: A Classic RPG Gets A Stunning Overhaul

Dragon Quest 3’s upcoming HD-2D remake seems like a ripe opportunity to address the latter.

Dragon Quest 3 seems like the natural first choice for the “HD-2D” remake treatment of the beloved JRPG series since it marks the chronological start.

Eventually, the responsibility for completing this quest falls on his child, the playable hero of Dragon Quest 3, and thus does the journey begin.

It was a simple and short quest, but it was more than enough to give me a proper sampling of Dragon Quest 3.

My time with Dragon Quest 3 HD-2D Remake was hardly revelatory, but it was eye-opening.

The Nintendo Switch Is Going Out With A Bang, Not A Whimper The Nintendo Switch Is Going Out With A Bang, Not A Whimper

Nintendo has confirmed it will have news on its next console in the coming months, and that means the Switch is in its twilight year.

But in just the next six months, Nintendo has a really solid line-up of games to fill store shelves and Switch card slots for the rest of 2024.

Sure, some years have popped off better than others, but there’s never really been a dearth of solid Nintendo games coming to the system.

When the Switch has been at its best, we’ve gotten some of the best entries for Nintendo’s biggest franchises.

But looking back at how well-served the Switch was across its lifespan, maybe we don’t need Nintendo to reinvent the wheel this time.

Did you know that the creator and composer of Final Fantasy teamed up again in 2021 to release a gorgeous retro-inspired RPG?

That shouldn’t be too surprising given developer Mistwalker’s team: as mentioned, Final Fantasy series creator Hironbu Sakaguchi produced and wrote the game, while long-time Final Fantasy composer Nobuo Uematsu provided the music.

Their involvement alone enough to get gamers excited, and Fantasian does have a certain quality about it that makes it feel like Final Fantasy in everything but name.

Honestly, you could put Fantasian next to Mistwalker’s Lost Odyssey, The Last Story, and Blue Dragon and have yourself a little off-brand Final Fantasy collection.

The Legend of Zelda: Echoes Of Wisdom is the latest adventure where players control the titular princess as sets out to rescue Link.

The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds for the 3DS is still one of the best games the company’s ever released.

Arriving in September, Echoes of Wisdom will kick-off what seems to be another low-key stacked year for the end of the Switch’s lifespan.

Team Ninja games are popular amongst the western audience, this is probably why the team is perceived as a high profile.

While it is possible for these machines to feature more ports now that it is revealed that the M4 features more Thunderbolt controllers, there are other possibilities too.

Well, obviously, we see +2 additional identical blocks, which are labeled as TB in the M3 image.

By adding more Thunderbolt controllers to the A18 Pro running in the iPhone 16 Pro and iPhone 16 Pro Max, the maximum supported resolution and framerate can drastically increase.

While these Unreal Engine 5.4 are definitely not optimized, they do show that the engine still needs plenty of work to reach an acceptable level of performance.

The latest version of the engine brings significant performance improvements, but stability still leaves something to be desired, according to an analysis shared…

Metroid Prime 4: Beyond Runs At 720p Resolution, Almost Rock-Solid 60 FPS in Reveal Trailer Metroid Prime 4: Beyond Runs At 720p Resolution, Almost Rock-Solid 60 FPS in Reveal Trailer

The Metroid Prime 4: Beyond gameplay shown in yesterday's trailer was most definitely captured on the original Nintendo Switch, new information revealed in a new technical analysis suggests.

As the game is still months away from release, things may change in the final version, so there's no guarantee that it will indeed target 720p resolution in docked mode.

Besides resolution and framerate, Nintendo World Report took a good look at Metroid Prime 4: Beyond's other visual features, including the pre-baked lighting system which manages to look great in most situations.

The gameplay sequences shown in the trailer, however, are not enough to see if the game will feature some sort of real-time a…

Dragon Age: The Veilguard Lets You Switch Between 2 Weapons Mid-Combat, Is About Being in Control of Every Single Action Dragon Age: The Veilguard Lets You Switch Between 2 Weapons Mid-Combat, Is About Being in Control of Every Single Action

Following the Summer Game Fest gameplay reveal, Dragon Age: The Veilguard is featured on Game Informer as the cover game for this month.

As befitting an action combat system, each class (Mage, Warrior, and Rogue) has access to light and heavy attacks.

Overall, the philosophy for the skill trees in Dragon Age: The Veilguard is to allow completely different play styles rather than merely improving statistics.

Uncharitably, previous Dragon Age games got to the realm of 'combat wasn't too bad.'

Dragon Age: The Veilguard is currently slated for a Fall 2024 launch on PC, PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series S|X.

However, one analyst highlights another problem, stating that introducing a low-cost version may not change Apple’s fortunes in this category.

Analyst highlights that Apple Vision Pro users abandon the AR headset after a few tries, hinting at its limited utilitySelling an overpriced head-mounted wearable means that the audience for the Apple Vision Pro would be constrained.

This assumption suggests that there would have been thousands of former Apple Vision Pro users who returned their headsets to the company for a full refund.

Based on previous information, a price range of $1,500 to $2,500 was said to be discussed for the low-cost Apple Vision Pro.

However, in investigating this instability issue Intel did discover a bug in the Enhanced Thermal Velocity Boost (eTVB) algorithm which can impact operating condit…

Mobile devices like ultrabooks, tablets, and handheld gaming consoles are getting more popular each year. Even if we look only at handheld consoles, a year ago, we had one popular option: Steam Deck. Right now, there is also ASUS ROG Ally and Lenovo Legion GO, and soon MSI will join with their new product. Most of consoles and other devices are sold with lower capacity or simply slower storage, so it's not a surprise that many owners think about replacing the storage, which more often is M.2 SSD in a user-friendly and tiny 2230 form factor. For those users, Corsair designed the reviewed today MP600 Core Mini at a high 2TB capacity.

The MP700 PRO is one of the fastest M.2 SSDs we can buy in stores, and even though it shares the same Phison controllers as all the fastest PCIe 5.0 SSDs, the MP700 PRO's design is improved compared to the competition. Of course, I won't share everything in the introduction, but you can expect some exceptional results.

Monster Hunters can now flatten everything with the Sax-a-Boom, a toy instrument best-known for a Jack Black skit Monster Hunters can now flatten everything with the Sax-a-Boom, a toy instrument best-known for a Jack Black skit

This garish beauty is a toy instrument resembling a saxophone, apparently first released in 1998, with eight buttons and a speaker, with each button triggering a synthesised musical loop.

Now an enterprising modder has added the instrument to Monster Hunter World: Iceborne.

TalonGrayson's mod has the straightforward title "Sax-a-Boom Hunting Horn" and, as you can see in the image, blesses hunters with a comically oversized version of the toy.

If you've ever wanted a product purely for the street cred you'd receive by having it, let it be the Noctua desk fan.

I've been using the desk fan (NV-FS1) to fend off the British summertime heat (16°C, rain) over the past couple of weeks, and I've come away wholly impressed with how it operates.

The NV-FS1 kit is a preassembled desk fan made up of a few key components, each of which is available to buy separately.

The Noctua NF-A12x25 is our pick for the best PC fan and it makes a surprisingly excellent stand-in for a desk fan, too.

That's a lot more than I can say for my regular, rather crappy, USB desk fan, which I picked up from a Korean market many years ago.

It felt great, like passing an exam I'd spent months cramming for, and like a victory I'd earned purely through my developing mastery of Hyper Light Breaker's mechanics.

South Korean outlet Chosun Daily reports that the big noises in NAND memory manufacturing are boosting production.

That should mean the upwards pressure on SSD prices for PCs in recent months will ease.

Of course, more supply of the NAND flash chips that make up SSDs will very likely lead to downward pressure on SSD prices.

Indeed, some observers reckon the increase in NAND production could be a little too much, a little too soon.

If you've ever played Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, then you'll probably remember just how rhythmic and fluid the fighting is.

Armed with a samurai sword and a prosthetic arm, there's more of an onus placed on precise timing and dancing around your opponent than you may find in other souls games.

While later souls games like Elden Ring certainly share some DNA, studio president Hidetaka Miyazaki believes the future of souls games will build off what Sekiro tried to perfect.

"Perhaps in Sekiro, it appears more obviously or it's the clearest form that I think that philosophy can embody," Miyazaki says.

During this interview, Miyazaki even told us that "while Elden Ring is not quite it, it's gett…

While there are no fresh details about the instability issue, the post clarifies what BIOS settings should be used for the unlocked K-variants of 13th and 14th Gen Core i5, i7, and i9 processors.

One team at Epic, the developers of UE, pointed the finger of blame directly at Intel for this, who in turn then redirected the blame at motherboard vendors using non-default power and current settings in the BIOS.

However, not every board vendor applied it in the same way and some still used Intel's 'performance' settings in the profile, rather than the 'standard' ones.

Thus, Intel has issued guidance on precisely what the motherboard BIOS should have, for the CPU to run within expected limits.

In case the headline didn't clue you in—this article will feature spoilers for Act 3 of Baldur's Gate 3, specifically, a set of twists regarding the Dream Guardian and the Emperor.

A second turn of the narrative knife happens when you go to confront Ansur underneath the game's titular city of Baldur's Gate.

There is also a plot-important fork, but that's only really recognisable if you played Baldur's Gate 1 back in the day.

I felt like a fool, but I was happy to move on with my life knowing that Larian's composer had pulled a fast one on me, before attending BAFTA's "An Evening with Baldur's Gate 3", at least.

Slavov was talking about iterative musical themes in Baldur's Gate 3.

XFX's new Magnetic Air graphics cards let you hot-swap fans, solving the plague of fan hub axle separation XFX's new Magnetic Air graphics cards let you hot-swap fans, solving the plague of fan hub axle separation

Do you dream of solving the curse of fan hub axle separation that has "plagued traditional GPUs"?

If the answer is yes to any of these questions, then you'll be pleased to know that XFX's new Magnetic Air range of Radeon graphics cards lets you do all of these.

Two of the Magnetic Air models sport a minor bump to their clocks, compared to AMD's reference designs.

One might expect prices for the Magnetic Air graphics cards to be painfully high but XFX has kept them relatively sensible.

The Mercury RX 7900 XTX Magnetic Air is $979.99 at Newegg and the RX 7800 XT version is $529.99 at Newegg.

The Fallout Vault Dweller Bundle includes a pair of themed weapon blueprints, one for a "Vault-Tech Approved" M16, the other for an "Atomic Disintegrator” HRM-9—which, despite the name, is a relatively conventional SMG.

Each weapon includes two aftermarket parts that make them even more useful in the heat of combat.

In practical terms the guns are the centerpiece of the bundle, but for my money the real highlight has to be the new Vault 141 skins for Price, Ghost, Soap, and Gaz—because this is where I think it misses the mark.

Yes, the vault dweller skins are "authentic," but they also look, well, really silly.

The event is set to run until 8 am PT/11 am ET on June 26—full details are up at…

Game Informer: 9.75/10Game Informer's Marcus Stewart declares Shadow of the Erdtree the best thing it can possibly be: more Elden Ring.

The DLC, Stewart says, "maintains a sky-high status quo" as a fitting punctuation for the era of Elden Ring.

"Some of the most rewarding game content in all of Elden Ring."

Chris Carter and Steven Mills deliver a duo review for Shadow of the Erdtree, and they offer their enthusiasm without restraint.

Not even Riot wants to try competing with Fortnite on user-generated content: 'I'm not gonna go pick that fight with Epic' Not even Riot wants to try competing with Fortnite on user-generated content: 'I'm not gonna go pick that fight with Epic'

League of Legends game director Pu Liu echoed that sentiment, saying that user-generated content "is primarily a platform and technology play" that's already dominated by a small handful of games—Roblox, Fortnite, Minecraft—in what he described as "a fairly winner-take-all market."

"I think if I look at what Riot's strengths are and our competitive advantages, I'm not gonna go pick that fight with Epic," Liu said.

Riot may be feeling a little pressure to "do something" with League of Legends.

As Liu and van Roon noted in the same Q&A, League's core player base is getting older and fewer newcomers are joining up.

"It's going to depend on the game" van Roon said.

Soapbox: Metroid Prime 4: Beyond Won't Be The Franchise's 'BOTW Moment', And That's Okay Soapbox: Metroid Prime 4: Beyond Won't Be The Franchise's 'BOTW Moment', And That's Okay

Little disappointed in Metroid prime 4.

Nintendo has consistently labelled Prime 4 as a Switch game, including it in its regular lineups during financial updates.

It’s clear to me that Metroid Prime Remastered was a bit of a test bed for Prime 4.

Looking at the two side-by-side (which I did, by the way), there’s a noticeable improvement with the latter, but you can tell that the technology applied to Metroid Prime has probably been repurposed for Prime 4.

Metroid Prime 4 won't be the franchise's 'Breath of the Wild moment', and that's just fine — we shouldn't expect it to be.

The UEFA EURO 2024 competition isn't normally a hotspot for Nintendo references, though we couldn't help but notice a particularly snazzy pair of boots in today's match-up between Croatia and Albania.

The Albanian right winger, Jasir Asani, rocked up to the fixture in a pair of custom Super Mario-inspired boots.

The design proudly displays the Nintendo mascot on the outside, while gold coins adorn the teal background.

Hey, at the time of writing, the winger has already snapped up an assist in these Mario-inspired bad boys.

It looks like The Legend of Zelda: Echoes of Wisdom will have amiibo support when it launches on 26th September 2024.

At least, that's what the game's Japanese website says.

We're not too surprised, given that the Link's Awakening remake — which uses the same art style — also has amiibo support, but it certainly has us thinking "Hey, can we get a Zelda amiibo in the same style as the Link's Awakening one?".

In Link's Awakening, the amiibo are used primarily for the remake-exclusive Chamber Dungeon, which is the dungeon creator.

For now, we're going to wrack our brains for some fun ideas with Zelda and amiibo.

The Plucky Squire plays in both top-down 2D and 3D.

As you can see, this lovely (and stunning) cover art for Zelda: Echoes of Wisdom follows in the footsteps of the Link's Awakening remake, released for Switch in 2019.

It puts the princess right in the middle of the action with her new mysterious fairy friend 'Tri'.

The "mature" application originally made its debut on the Switch in Japan last November, alongside the release of GoldenEye 007 and Jet Force Gemini.

Noticeably these games managed to avoid being added to Nintendo's mature version of the app here in the West.

There's already been all sorts of discussion about the game online, but one of the biggest talking points seems to be the game's map.

The Monster Master class is a pretty interesting one to add to Dragon Quest III — you can't tame monsters in the original NES game.

While that remains true where 'Switch 2' is concerned, we also know that Nintendo supports its systems very well into the latter years.

Sure, we'll get a fair number of HD updates (hello there, Donkey Kong Country Returns HD), but there was also a healthy dose of optimism with our caution that there'd be some sparks of excitement amongst the known-knowns and the unknown-knowns.

Reality Labs, Meta’s XR division formed in 2020, is now being reorganized into two distinct groups, ‘Wearables’ and ‘Metaverse’, which reportedly comes along a “relatively small” number of layoffs.

As reported by The Verge’s Alex Heath, Meta CTO and head of Reality Labs Andrew ‘Boz’ Bosworth announced the reorg in an internal memo to employees, stating that all teams in Reality Labs are being merged into either a central ‘Metaverse’ organization, responsible for Quest, and a new ‘Wearables’ organization to dedicated to other hardware, including its Ray-Ban Meta smartglasses.

In the memo, which is available via Heath’s Command Line newsletter, Bosworth says the company’s smartglasses were “a…

‘Gorilla Tag’ Has Topped $100M in Revenue, Making it One of VR’s Most Successful Games
‘Gorilla Tag’ Has Topped $100M in Revenue, Making it One of VR’s Most Successful Games ‘Gorilla Tag’ Has Topped $100M in Revenue, Making it One of VR’s Most Successful Games

VR studio Another Axiom today announced that its breakout title, Gorilla Tag, has surpassed $100 million in revenue.

Not long after its launch back in early 2021 it became clear there was something special about Gorilla Tag.

It’s minimalistic ‘tag’ gameplay, unique arm-based locomotion, and novel social architecture made for simple social fun.

These figures make Gorilla Tag one of the most successful and most popular VR games to date.

The studio isn’t leaving Gorilla Tag behind, but it’s busy at work on a spiritual successor to Lone Echo, the game which inspired Gorilla Tag’s movement in the first place.

Quest ‘Augments’ Feature for Concurrent AR Apps Needs More Time to Cook, Says Meta CTO
Quest ‘Augments’ Feature for Concurrent AR Apps Needs More Time to Cook, Says Meta CTO Quest ‘Augments’ Feature for Concurrent AR Apps Needs More Time to Cook, Says Meta CTO

Last year Meta announced the so-called Augments feature, planned for Quest 3, which would allow persistent mini AR apps to live in the world around you.

Now, eight months after the headset hit store shelves, Meta’s CTO explains why the feature has yet to ship.

This week Meta CTO Andrew “Boz” Bosworth responded to a question during an Instagram Q&A about when the Augments feature would ship.

We’re only two-and-a-half months out from Meta Connect 2024, which would be the one-year anniversary of the Augments announcement.

That’s where we likely to hear more about the feature, but at this point it’s unclear if it could ship by then.

Report: Apple Focuses on More Affordable Vision Headset Over High-end Follow-up
Report: Apple Focuses on More Affordable Vision Headset Over High-end Follow-up Report: Apple Focuses on More Affordable Vision Headset Over High-end Follow-up

At $3,500, Vision Pro is undoubtedly expensive, which many are rightfully hoping will be remedied in a prospective follow-up.

Now, according to a report from The Information, Apple may be ditching the ‘Pro’ aspect of its next-gen Vision headsets altogether, instead aiming to release a single “more affordable” device in late 2025.

Now, citing an employee at a manufacturer that makes key components for the Vision Pro, The Information reports Apple has suspended work on that high-end follow-up due to slowing sales of the $3,500 Vision Pro.

This follows Apple’s announcement it was getting set to release Vision Pro outside of the US for the first time, which includes mainland China, Hong Kong, J…

SteamVR Games Come to Vision Pro Thanks to Public Launch of Free ‘ALVR’ App
SteamVR Games Come to Vision Pro Thanks to Public Launch of Free ‘ALVR’ App SteamVR Games Come to Vision Pro Thanks to Public Launch of Free ‘ALVR’ App

Did you know you can technically play SteamVR games like Half-Life: Alyx (2020) on Vision Pro?

Well, now you do, as the leading app dedicated to bringing SteamVR connectivity to a ton of standalone headsets is now available for Vision Pro on the App Store.

Previously offered as an invite-only beta, ALVR is now free on the App Store, allowing Vision Pro users to stream OpenVR games from your PC via Wi-Fi.

This includes support for Vision Pro’s hand gestures, however more than likely you’ll want some sort of controller to really make use of SteamVR content.

To get up and running, you’ll of course need a VR-ready computer, either running Windows or Linux.

New Tool From Niantic Aims to Make Web-based XR Easier to Build New Tool From Niantic Aims to Make Web-based XR Easier to Build

Pokémon GO developer Niantic announced it’s releasing a new visual editor and “powerful web gaming engine” called Niantic Studio, which aims to let creatives build immersive XR, 3D experiences, and casual web games.

Niantic Studio is essentially the company’s evolution of its subscription-based AR content development platform 8th Wall, which it acquired in 2022.

Today, 8th Wall includes a number of tools for making AR content, including location-based experiences and a host of other stuff primarily targeted at mobile users.

“Studio is a completely new approach to building immersive XR and 3D experiences with Niantic 8th Wall,” the company says.

Somnium Space, the Czechia-based company behind the upcoming Somnium VR1 headset, announced that orders for its long-awaited PC VR headset will be opening on June 20th, coming first to reservation holders.

It’s been a long time coming for Somnium VR1, which we last saw at CES 2023 when the company showed off a dev kit version of the headset.

Due to supply chain constraints though, the company decided to sideline the standalone version to focus on the soon-to-release Lighthouse-tracked PC VR headset.

Hands-on: Logitech’s MX Ink for Quest Could Legitimize VR Styluses as a Whole
Hands-on: Logitech’s MX Ink for Quest Could Legitimize VR Styluses as a Whole Hands-on: Logitech’s MX Ink for Quest Could Legitimize VR Styluses as a Whole

That alone makes MX Ink unique, but there’s more that makes this the device that could legitimize VR styluses as a whole.

Pairing the MX Ink is just like pairing one of the headset’s own controllers, without any extra hardware or software needed.

Compared to the company’s last VR stylus, the MX Ink is significantly more compact.

I also tried using the MX Ink stylus against a whiteboard while using Quest 3’s mixed reality view.

My understanding is that developers have a huge range of control over exactly how their applications will handle MX Ink.

6 Things Vision Pro Needs Before It Can Go Mainstream
6 Things Vision Pro Needs Before It Can Go Mainstream 6 Things Vision Pro Needs Before It Can Go Mainstream

It also comes down to Apple’s early insistence that Vision Pro isn’t a gaming console, despite its ability to play immersive content.

It makes sense that Apple needs to feeling out why people are using Vision Pro first instead of making rash assumptions.

All-day ErgonomicsWhat: Vision Pro isn’t the all-day XR headset we’d hoped for.

Often, lighter XR headsets are better for long-term use, but a key area that’s lacking in Vision Pro (and many other headsets) is on-head balance.

There are a ton of Vision Pro wish list features not mentioned in this article.

Quest Gets Its First Third-party Input Device Thanks to Logitech
Quest Gets Its First Third-party Input Device Thanks to Logitech Quest Gets Its First Third-party Input Device Thanks to Logitech

Logitech today unveiled an XR stylus that comes as Meta Quest’s first third-party motion peripheral, targeting creatives working in both 2D and 3D media.

Called Logitech MX Ink, the spatially-tracked stylus supports Quest 2 and Quest 3, as well as “future headsets,” Logitech says.

Logitech MX Ink is said to have a “natural pen-like feel and pressure-sensitive tip,” which allows users to create, annotate, and navigate in XR environments.

The device allows the user to pair with Quest and use it interchangeably with Quest controllers too, making it effectively the first time Meta’s headset can support more than two paired controllers at a time.

Logitech MX Ink is slated to launch in late Septe…

‘Astro Bot’ Developer: Don’t Hold Out Hope for VR Port
‘Astro Bot’ Developer: Don’t Hold Out Hope for VR Port ‘Astro Bot’ Developer: Don’t Hold Out Hope for VR Port

ASTRO BOT Rescue Mission (2018) is one of most popular PSVR exclusives to date, however Sony-owned developers Team Asobi are releasing its widely hyped PS5 follow-up Astro Bot without the addition of VR support.

Don’t hold out hope for a VR port either, as the studio has now confirmed it’s simply not in the cards.

This would eventually spur Japan Studio, where Doucet was Creative Director and Producer of Astro Bot, to release the full-fledged Astro Bot Rescue Mission in 2018.

In fact, we liked Astro Bot Rescue Mission so much, we scored the VR native platformer our first [10/10] in our full review.

Notably, Astro Bot Rescue Mission has never received a PSVR 2 port, highlighting yet further …

We’re reducing the size of our team by around 30% and saying goodbye to many talented team members in the process.

These decisions are not a reflection of the quality of the team members who are leaving, but rather one of a changing business and market.

For international team members, we are paying the greater of our package or amounts required under local law.

Our focus today is supporting departing team members and setting them up for success.

We’ll move back to our early team growth philosophy of staying lean and scrappy instead of growing for growth’s sake.

VisionOS 2 Enables WebXR by Default, Unlocking a Cross-platform Path to Vision Pro
VisionOS 2 Enables WebXR by Default, Unlocking a Cross-platform Path to Vision Pro VisionOS 2 Enables WebXR by Default, Unlocking a Cross-platform Path to Vision Pro

WebXR allows developers to deliver cross-platform XR experiences directly from the web, with no gatekeepers to approve or reject content.

WebXR is the widely supported web standard that allows developers to deliver AR and VR content from the web.

And because it’s delivered through the browser, accessing and sharing WebXR experiences is as easy as clicking or sending a link—like this one.

Vision Pro has supported initial WebXR support since its launch, but it required users to manually enable the feature by digging into Safari’s settings.

Vision Pro thus joins headsets like Quest, HoloLens 2, and Magic Leap 2 in supporting WebXR content.
