If you're taking on the Saudi Arabian Grand Prix, you'll want to know the best F1 22 Jeddah setup. Typically the second track in a standard season if you mimic the order of real life, Jeddah was first introduced last year as the track where you spend the longest time at full throttle, hurtling round the high-speed corners.
As a result, Saudi Arabia is a location that offers plenty of overtaking opportunities, which is where the best F1 22 Jeddah setup comes in handy. Depending on your driving style and car performance, there will always be some slight tweaks needed based on your preference, so don't take this as an exact science, but following these car settings will almost certainly improve your lap times from the preset options in one of the best racing games this year.F1 22 review, Best racing games, Simulation games

Want to know about new Genshin Impact characters? According to Hoyoverse's original Genshin Impact roadmap - new faces should release with every major update. During each new update there's usually at least one Genshin Impact banner with a minimum of one brand new character. The banners feature characters with increased drop rates, including one five-star character and three four-star characters.
Yelan and Kuki Shinobu are the most recent new Genshin Impact characters to arrive in the Genshin Impact 2.7 update, and we know that Heizou is arriving in the next update. There are also leaks and datamined information concerning new faces that may appear in future Genshin Impact updates.

Genshin Impact banners adhere to a pretty regular schedule. Each update arrives with a new banner that lasts around three weeks, and after it expires, it's followed by a second banner which also lasts roughly three weeks, at which point it's update time once again.
Wondering what the next Genshin Impact banner is? Even though we hear rumours of new Genshin Impact characters arriving in forthcoming updates, we won't know their exact release date until we know which banner they will be a part of, and whether it'll be the first or second banner in the update. Occasionally, banners don't stick to this schedule - most notably, update 1.3 had three two-week banners, so that Hu Tao's banner didn't cross over with the Chinese New Year.
Typically, each limited character banner - or Event Wish - contains a five-star character, and three four-star characters. There's also a Weapon banner - Epitome Invocation - which runs alongside each character banner, and features different weapons each time. Here's everything you need to know about the current and upcoming Genshin Impact banners.Genshin Impact 2.8 release date, Genshin Impact character tier list, Genshin Impact leveling guide

There are plenty of Minecraft maps representing blocky versions of your favourite games, from Elden Ring to Mario Kart. One of the most impressive recreations we've seen is still in the works, and it's all about World of Warcraft - in fact, it's so impressive that even Blizzard itself has complimented it.
YouTuber Yunatahel, who does a lot of World of Warcraft videos, also happens to be recreating Stormwind from the MMO game in Minecraft. Stormwind, also known as Stormwing City, is the capital city of the area known as Stormwind and the largest human city in Azeroth. It's named so because of sudden squalls of wind that occur due to a leyline pattern around the city.
While this Minecraft build is still in the works, the video shows off a stunning level of detail and craftsmanship - not to mention adoration for the source material. Each building is adorned with a beautiful tiled roof, the cobbled walkways look almost real, and the lighting effects add a sense of life to the area as well. A bevy of shops, waterways, and churches litter the area, and we can't wait to explore it.Minecraft console commands, Minecraft skins, Minecraft mods

AMD Ryzen 7000 CPUs are on the horizon, but Zen 3 might be here to stay for a little longer. Zen 4 should eventually supersede the company's current-gen offering, but rumours point toward new Zen 3D chips that cater to budget gaming PC builds.
According to reliable hardware leaker Greymon55, "several new" AMD Zen 3 processors are on the cards, and we'll apparently hear more about the lineup next month. So far, AMD has only released one 8-core Zen3D SKU, but we'll potentially see team red expand its AM4 portfolio with cheap and cheerful gaming CPUs that pack a punch.
Speaking of AM4, there's seemingly also still life left in AMD's current-gen platform, as Greymon55 claims we'll see "low-end AMD products" in the future. In other words, you might not have to upgrade to the best motherboard to jump on the Zen 4 bandwagon, as budget chips could still boast older socket compatibility. Naturally, this means some next-gen options may still support DDR4, which suggests they could use a different memory controller.Zen 4 CPUs - everything we know, RDNA 3 GPUs - everything we know, Best gaming CPU

Yoimiya joins the roster of new Genshin Impact characters as part of the current Genshin Impact banner alongside the four-star Sayu. If you're looking for the best Yoimiya build in Genshin Impact, then here's how to create the ideal build based on Yoimiya's abilities.
The Genshin Impact Yoimiya banner, Tapestry of Golden Flames, has dropped. You now have a chance to play as the five-star firework shop owner, also known as the Queen of the Summer Festival, who lives in Inazuma City in Hanamizaka. She is a five-star Pyro bow user, and although players may be hesitant to try her out due to her lack of AoE damage, the best Yoimiya build proves why she should be used in the primary DPS role.Genshin Impact 2.8 release date, Genshin Impact character tier list, Genshin Impact leveling guide

Kazuha an Anemo Sword user and hails from Inazuma, but 'currently lives with the Crux Fleet of Liyue' and he's getting a banner rerun in the 2.8 update.
Depending on how you build him and how many of his constellations you're able to unlock, you can check out of Genshin Impact best Kazuha build to prepare ahead of time. Interestingly, he focuses on elemental damage, and scales with elemental mastery. He depends heavily on his weapons and artifacts to provide him with damage bonuses as he doesn't get these from his ascension.
He receives a huge elemental damage bonus from his ultimate when it combines with another element, and deals additional elemental damage whenever he causes a swirl reaction, so we recommend pairing him with characters who can provide this, like Chongyun or Hu Tao.Genshin Impact 2.8 release date, Genshin Impact character tier list, Genshin Impact leveling guide

Want to know more about the upcoming Genshin Impact events? A new version of Genshin Impact arrives every six weeks, complete with new characters, quests, and events. It's difficult to keep track of which events are currently running and if there are any new ones coming soon, so here's a schedule for all current and upcoming Genshin Impact events.
There are usually a number of Genshin Impact events running simultaneously, and they aren't just in-game events. When a new Genshin Impact character joins the game, the devs launch a web event at the same time - players learn about the latest characters through an interactive story told through a web browser. The rewards for completing different events range from in-game items like primogems and mora, to real life prizes like mouse mats and plushies.
Just like the Genshin Impact banners, most events are only available for a limited time, so it's worth participating as soon as you can. New events are usually added to Genshin Impact after an update, but it's worth keeping an eye out on this page as the devs do like to surprise the community.Genshin Impact 2.8 release date, Genshin Impact character tier list, Genshin Impact leveling guide

A lovely point and click mystery with some tricksy puzzles, but unlimited goes so you still get to feel clever - plus the story plays with some mystery tropes in really fun ways.

Sometimes, a game is great at hiding its true nature. Ground Divers is a fantastic example. It looks cheerful and bright. I mean, you're outright using CHEER Crystals to power your mining frame robot. Said robot is adorable, as are many of the creatures lurking beneath the earth. It seems like this is a happy, friendly world! But it isn't! None of those subterranean abominations are your friends! Everything is trying to kill you! Even trying to dig deeper means death! But I mean, at least it's an entertaining way to go.
The world is in big trouble. People abused and used up natural resources. Which means folks are scrounging for power now. This has lead to to the titular Ground Divers. They're groups of individuals that use mining frames, essentially mech suits, to dig below the ground for new energy sources. Players are the latest member of Studio Tsuruhashi, a group that uses a new mining frame called Tsuruhashi to take on assignments and search for precious commodities. (Tsuruhashi itself being named after a person who found revolutionary Rare Matter that helped solve an energy crisis before.) Your goal is to go through different missions to acquire materials, energy, and knowledge.
When I first started Ground Divers, I expected something lighthearted. Something that would offer some challenge, but be more of a puzzle. The initial round of tutorials almost annoyed me. Before you take Tsuruhashi on a first mission, Anne walks you through every action you can take. You don't directly control the mining frame. Rather, you place pins. These dictate actions. Tsuruhashi can dig toward one pin, create a "Pit" camp with another, and perform a special move with the third, should you dictate it. All of these rely on AP earned from resting or digging through certain kinds of blocks. While you also can choose to use items and what to do when at a Pit, Tsuruhashi largely takes on most actions by itself. It even has an "autopilot" dig mode if you haven't assigned any locations.
After exploring the Secret Bamboo Springs, I was glad the Land of Beginnings tutorials were as detailed as they were. There's a lot of nuance to the game! Even on the normal difficulty! That early introduction reinforces how important energy and timing can be. Enemies get agitated the longer you hang around a layer. Which, in turn, makes them more aggressive. Cheering makes Tsuruhashi stronger, but too much makes the character overheat. In the first two parts of Secret Bamboo Springs, AP isn't a problem! It's easy to dig through to the next layer and find the certain "goals" along the way for more AP. Except once you dig deeper, you'll find more environmental hazards and fewer high AP "scores." Not to mention investing in Pit upgrades to strengthen Tsuruhashi and unlock support units, healing options, and other abilities ends up feeling necessary. Factor in the nuance that comes when setting pins, and it can get shockingly intimidating!
Which really brings up how much of a roguelike Ground Divers is and how well it works. The resources you bring back with you on a successful run allow you to create equipment. These can be equipped to give players an edge on their next run. You also might accumulate items, which can let you assist Tsuruhashi with dealing damage or healing. (If you don't have those, the mining frame will automatically attack and you have to hope you "cheered" enough to ensure survival.) The idea of crafting equipment, as well as getting new customization options for Tsuruhashi and the room, add a bit of replay value. So does the layout of each stage being different each time you return to it.
Though honestly, much of Ground DIvers' ambiance also encourages replays. As I mentioned before, this is a bright and colorful game. It has personality! When you hop in, a Hironobu Kageyama theme song hits you. (You probably recognize him best as the person behind the Dragon Ball Z "Cha-La Head-Cha-La" theme song.) Shigeto Koyama, who created designs for Big Hero 6, Darling in the Franxx, Rebuild of Evangelion, and SSSS.Gridman, designed the game's mecha. Zombie Land Saga Anthology's Kakeru Kakemaru worked on the character designs. A lot of effort went into making sure the game looks and sounds good! Though, I do wish some of that also went into the characters' personalities. Even a character like Anne, who gets tons of screen time, feels like a one-note character. Dorothy suffers the most from this, as her whole personality is lusting after Anne.
Generally, it is easy to dig into Ground Divers. Yes, it gets very difficult very quickly. Sweltering Sand Wasteland is a wake-up call after Secret Bamboo Springs. However, the game is manageable if you pay attention and wisely direct Tsuruhashi. There's a charm to it. Not to mention the different difficulty levels and additional challenges for each region offer a reason to go back and get the three stars to fully "complete" them.
Ground Divers is available for the Nintendo Switch.

A Genshin Impact Bouncing Blobby Slimes web event is now active. As usual, it is a way to take part in an activity in a browser to earn Primogems. This time, the event involves clicking at the right times to determine the strength of a slime's jump to ensure it moves from platform to platform.
Here's the official announcement.
To start, the Genshin Impact Bouncing Blobby Slimes web event has four stages. One is a practice area that doesn't cost someone any stamina to play. This allows someone to learn how long to hold the mouse button or space bar in order to make a jump. There are three others immediately available, each costing 30 stamina and using different slimes. Rolling Stone uses a Hydro Slime, No One Escapes my Sights uses an Anemo Slime, and Thorn… to Oblivion uses a Pyro Slime. Different stages have different hazards to make jumps more treacherous. Also, stages five through eight will unlock between July 5-6, 2022.
Playing earns people Blob Coins. These can be used at the Blob Store for different in-game rewards. Among the items someone can earn are Primogems, Hero's Wits, Mora, and Mystic Enhancement Ores.
Genshin Impact is available for the PS4, PS5, PC, and mobile devices. A Nintendo Switch version is in development. The Genshin Impact Bouncing Blobby Slimes web event will run until July 10, 2022. The 2.8 update will arrive on July 13, 2022.

Next are some of the weapons Wedge uses in the game. Unlike in the original FFVII, he sees quite a bit of combat in the remake. For example, he'll be running around at one part when Cloud and Avalanche infiltrate Shinra warehouses. First, here's a closer look at his grenade launcher.
This isn't the first time Wedge details came up in FFVII Remake concept art. Back in November 2021, Square Enix showed off Biggs and Wedge's rooms in Midgar. Not to mention Biggs concept art appeared back in June 2022.

HoYoVerse and Pizza Hut will hold a Genshin Impact event in China with in-game rewards and real-life food items. There is also promotional art featuring Eula and Amber. The two of them are holding pizzas that may serve as a limited menu item. More information will appear closer to August 2022, which is when the event will start. [Thanks, Reddit!]
In the art, Eula looks like she is the cook behind the operations, while Amber is the delivery girl. She is even holding a helmet that looks like it has rabbit ears on it. The official Chinese Pizza Hut site does not have information or a page yet for the Genshin Impact event. This does mean that there are no details regarding what in-game rewards Chinese players will be able to access either.
In March 2021, HoYoVerse had a collaboration with KFC, with Diluc and Noelle serving as the spokespeople. In real life, you could get buckets of chicken with Diluc on it. Meanwhile, in-game, you could get KFC-colored wings and there was an Outland Gastronomy event. Though only Chinese players could obtain the wings in the beginning, Western players were able to access them through Twitch subs in November 2021.
