Want to know what this week's Destiny 2 Timelost weapon is? Much like the Destiny 2 Nightfall weapons, every week a new Timelost weapon becomes available. They're essentially better versions of the basic Vault of Glass weapons, with an extra third and fourth perk slot and a slot for Adept weapon mods.
To get this week's Destiny 2 Timelost weapon, you will need to complete its particular challenge in the Vault of Glass on Master difficulty. You can check out our Destiny 2 Vault of Glass walkthrough for tips on how to beat it. Five encounters in the raid have a challenge associated with them, which is basically an extra condition to meet when completing the fight (for example, the 'Wait For It' challenge on Confluxes requires you to wait until the Wyverns have started sacrificing themselves before you kill them).
On normal difficulty, completing a challenge grants bonus loot, but on Master, this is how you get your Timelost weapon. Only one challenge is 'active' per week, and they rotate with the weekly update every Tuesday at 1pm EDT / 10am PDT / 6pm BST.Destiny 2: Beyond Light review, Destiny 2 exotics, Play Destiny 2

Are you looking for the Legend or Master Lost Sector locations in Destiny 2? While many Destiny 2 Exotics can be bought from Xûr or even in the world loot pool, the Exotics in these special Lost Sector instances cannot, forcing players to explore these dangerous areas if they want the best equipment available. To make matters worse, you have to complete them on your own to get a chance at the best rewards.
The Destiny 2 Legendary Lost Sector location changes with the daily reset at 5pm UTC. Before you can take on Legend Lost Sectors, you need to complete all the normal Lost Sectors first. If you don't, the new Legend Lost Sectors will not appear on the map. Each day, the location, modifiers, and rewards rotate out for something new. As of Season of the Risen, the Legend and Master Lost Sector quests both take place in the same location.
It's important to remember that Exotic drops are not guaranteed after completing these quests, so you may have to run through the same Lost Sector multiple times. You can go through them quests with a fireteam, but your rewards will be reduced to Enhancement Cores only.Destiny 2: Beyond Light review, Destiny 2 exotics, Play Destiny 2

Want to know what this week's Destiny 2 Nightfall weapon is? Each week you've got a chance at a different weapon for completing Nightfall Strikes, and ever since Season of the Lost, fan-favourite legacy weapons from the original Destiny have been added to the rotation. Two new weapons were introduced into the pool in Season of the Risen, so it's more important than ever to know in advance the Nightfall weapon schedule.
In case you don't know what the Destiny 2 Nightfall weapon means, Nightfall: The Ordeal is a playlist available in the Vanguard menu, alongside the basic Strike playlist. Each week, a different Strike is chosen as the Nightfall, and offered in five escalating difficulties, with harder enemies, challenging modifiers, and enemy power levels cranking up.
The coveted Nightfall weapons have a chance to drop from any Nightfall Strike difficulty, but it's far more likely at higher levels. Your best bet for farming each week's Nightfall weapon is to set the Strike to Master difficulty, according to YouTuber Aztecross. You should also note that there's no automatic matchmaking above Hero difficulty, however, so you'll need to get a squad together.Destiny 2: Beyond Light review, Destiny 2 exotics, Play Destiny 2

The trucks in SnowRunner work hard, which of course means they like to play hard, too. SnowRunner Season 7 heads to Tennessee, dropping the truck game's usual task-based hauling jobs and trading them in for some good old-fashioned dirt racing.
SnowRunner Season 7, Compete and Conquer, is available to everyone who owns the SnowRunner Year 2 pass, and it adds a new four square kilometre map set in the woodsy region of Burning Mill, Tennessee. It's set up for the backwoods equivalent of the Forza Horizon festival, with tracks laid out through the forest and hot air balloons lazily hanging in the air.
Season 7 also adds two new vehicles to the SnowRunner fleet. There's the Spinter 43-19, which is a Dakar-style truck designed to be able to speed along even under punishing weather and road conditions. The second new vehicle is the swift Gor BY-4, a lightweight scout car that should prove up to the task of mapping out the Burning Mill wilderness. All SnowRunner owners, whether they own the Year 2 pass or not, also get 10 new exterior stickers for their existing truck fleets.SnowRunner review, Best PC simulation games, Best racing games

AMD rolled out the latest version of its Nvidia DLSS competitor technology, FidelityFX Super Resolution 2.0, earlier this month, and now, the latest God of War PC update - patch 1.0.12 - adds support for that tech into the stunning action-adventure game. AMD says this version of its image upscaling tech can produce "image quality that's practically indistinguishable or perhaps even better than native."
For God of War on PC, that means another option for running the game on a lower base resolution, freeing up system resources for higher framerates or additional visual effects, while maintaining the image quality of a high resolution display. While FSR 2.0 doesn't use the machine learning techniques employed by Nvidia's DLSS processes, AMD does use temporal data in its upscaling algorithm.
When FSR 2.0 first arrived on PC, it was only available for use in Deathloop. Now you can use it in God of War, and AMD says it'll be coming to at least a dozen more in the near future. Games like Anno 1800, Assetto Corsa Competizione, Baldur's Gate III, Farming Simulator 22, Far Cry 6, and more already support the first version of the technology.

World of Warcraft: Shadowlands update 9.2.5, which is out now as of May 31, grants the ability for members of the Alliance and Horde to join parties together for certain kinds of party activities. That means you'll be able to join cross-faction groups and parties and play alongside your friends in the MMORPG, even if they've sworn allegiance to your mortal enemies.
Shadowlands Update 9.2.5 is a significant patch, adding new questlines for Blood Elves and Dark Iron Dwarves, as well as the new Enigma Crucible PvP arena. All wings of Torghast, Tower of the Damned will be opened (instead of having only two wings open per week), and there's a redesign for the report player menu pane.
But perhaps the most significant change with this patch is the addition of cross-faction instances. It's not a free-for-all, mind, because the Alliance and Horde remain generally hostile to each other. However, if you have a friendship via BattleTag or Real ID with a player who is a member of the opposing faction, you will be able to invite them to a party once the patch arrives.Best MMORPGs on PC, The best WoW addons, WoW Classic leveling guide

The Honkai: Star Rail second closed beta is on, and people once again get a chance to be the Trailblazer and ride the Astral Express to different places. I had a chance to go through a bit of the game. While I wasn't fortunate enough to get any five-star units, I did notice something it has in common with HoYoVerse's other titles. Even in its early phases, Honkai: Star Rail feels like it relies very heavily on its characters to interest players and move the story along.
Honkai: Star Rail starts with players following a mysterious woman named Kafka through the Herta Space Station. She and Silver Wolf are looking for an item Kafka calls the Cancer of All Worlds, a Stellaron. When they find it, Kafka proceeds to shove it into the the Trailblazer. Like Genshin Impact's Traveler, this is the player avatar. After some ominous words and suggesting the player will need to make a "choice," the two disappear. That's when Dan Heng and March 7th, Astral Express members, appear to save the day. The Trailblazer is an insomniac now on a space station besieged by the Antimatter Legion.
Of course, once you fall in with them, you don't just end up evacuating the station. Instead, when escaping with the two and fellow Astral Express member Himiko, the Doomsday Beast attacks. After the fight, the Trailblazer steps in front of March 7th to protect her, using the Stellaron to attack it. Welt Yang manages to stop the attack. And so, the player joins Dan Heng, March 7th, Welt, and Himiko on their journey across the stars to deal with Stellarons and the Antimatter Legion.
As someone goes through Honkai: Star Rail's initial introduction and the Trailblazer's first "mission" dealing with a Stellaron on Jarilo-VI, they're constantly meeting potentially playable characters. As with HoYoVerse's other games, it feels like there is an attempt to make them as interesting as possible in as little amount of time. (Perhaps because someone would need to head to the gacha for some or get others via various currencies in the shop?) For example, after meeting Asta, we see her willing to sacrifice herself for the sake of others against the Antimatter Legion's forces. She immediately cements herself as interesting, due to the heroic gesture. Herta and Welt have an element of mystery on their side. The former, because we're always only seeing her "puppets" on the station and she's revered as a genius. The latter, because HoYoVerse established going in that he's the same person as the Honkai Impact 3rd character. Sampo Koski is fascinating, as it's uncertain whose side he's really on due to his actions. Likewise, it is interesting to see people like Bronya and Himeko because are alternate reality versions of the Murata Himeko and Bronya Zaychik we know.
All these characters also make Honkai: Star Rail's turn-based combat seem promising. It calls to mind both Honkai Impact 3rd and Genshin Impact. It features a system that involves normal attacks, a special skill, an Ultimate, and passives. Each character also has an element associated with them in Honkai: Star Rail, which can be used to break an enemy's shields if they are weak to it and allow more damage to be dealt. You can have a character use a special skill, which can do something like defend, deal more damage, or hit a group. Passive abilities also are present in the form of a talent and technique. The former could be like March 7th's Girl Power, which will have her attack any enemy that hits an ally she's defending with her The Power of Cuteness skill. Her Technique, on the other hand, triggers if you have her as the active character on the field and attack it to gain the advantage in the fight. When the battle begins, one will be frozen.
So the key in each fight is to use characters to break opponents' shields. When you do, you can then deal more damage to them. So the Trailblazer's basic and skill attacks both deal Physical damage. Say you get to the fight against Bronya. When she has members of the Silvermane Guards around, you can't exploit her weaknesses. When they are dispatched, the Trailblazer could use any of their attacks to break down Bronya's armor. Though once armor is broken, it is only removed briefly. Players then need to launch a full assault to take advantage of the opportunity before it is restored. Which means like in other games, having a character from each element feels necessary. (You do get free ones to help with that, like March 7th, Dan Heng, Herta, Natasha, and the Trailblazer.) It also means that pulling for people you like due to their movesets or personality will absolutely be a thing. Which is expected from a gacha game.
From what I've seen, it feels like Honkai: Star Rail relies on the same concepts that drive other HoYoVerse games. There's a story with an "important" player character. This avatar will be a driving force and central figure. Other characters are designed to be attractive and compelling for various reasons. Some of which are tied to their usefulness in combat, determined by their element and moveset. We'll have to wait and see what happens with the final build. But for now, it seems like will rely on a familiar formula.
Honkai: Star Rail is in development for PCs and mobile devices.

Ushio is wearing the swimsuit she appears in both in flashbacks and during the story in Summertime Rendering. You can display her both with and without the necklace Shinpei Ajiro gave her. She also comes with it as an accessory she can hold. She can be posed holding a plate of curry with rice and a fork too. As for her faceplates, she'll come with three. One features a gentle smile. The other offers an enthusiastic, wide smile. The final one makes it look as though she's angry.
Here's a full gallery showing off accessories and potential poses for this Ushio figure.
The Summertime Rendering Ushio Kofune Nendoroid will appear in Japan in January 2023 and in North America in March 2023. Pre-orders are open until July 20, 2022. Udon is releasing the manga outside Japan. The anime adaptation is streaming via Disney+.

Also, as people might expect, she'll be compatible with the A2 Nendoroid that is already available.
As is typical for Nendoroids, the short hair A2 one will come with three face plates. One offers a neutral expression. Another features something of a melancholy smile. The third is a shouting one that could be used for combat poses. She'll also come with two weapons. One is the Beastlord large sword. The other is a pair of Type-3 Fists Combat Bracers.
Here's a closer look at this version of the A2 figure and her parts.

Teamfight Tactics is Riot Games' auto chess game, bringing in units from the League of Legends universe. An important mechanic in this game is traits, which grant your team unique effects based on how many units of a certain trait are played on your board. Traits are one of the most important aspects of Teamfight Tactics and will dictate how you build your comp and what units you decide to play. New traits are introduced in each Teamfight Tactics set, and some introduce new mechanics while others remix old ones. One of the traits in Teamfight Tactics is the Guild trait. Traits force players to adhere to certain comps, as each trait adds a special ability to your units when you have multiple of the same trait on your board. Balancing traits is an important part of the game when building your team comp. It's important to know the traits, their effects, and the champions that belong to each one.

For $62.30 USD, $69.99 USD, or $78.94 USD, you can buy the Fenix Airbus 320, PMDG 737, and Leonardo MD-80, respectively. These three payware jetliners released within weeks of each other for Microsoft Flight Simulator. That is the very same simulator some can initially play for just a dollar due to it being a part of the Xbox Game Pass service. Microsoft seems like it has no problem continuing to offer that promotion to newcomers.

Those who do choose to buy the sim outright need only spend $59.99 USD. No matter how one accesses Microsoft Flight Simulator, the core sim itself is still notably cheaper than some of these new add-ons.
