This year's Steam Summer Sale is over, so say goodbye to all the deals. But say hello to some rad-looking art! With the sale over, an artist at Valve is now free to share all the fake video game key art and covers that she helped create that were hidden inside Steam's large digital catalog as part of the sale's…

As has been reported by Gaming on Linux, and chatted about on Reddit, the Steam Deck has got a bit of a security problem concerning its pretty badly outdated version of Firefox. Valve has reportedly promised a fix, but it won't come until the next SteamOS update. That's less than ideal.

     Don't worry, Destiny 2 fans – the Gjallarhorn Nerf will be in-game too

If you don't fancy shelling out for the four-foot Destiny 2 replica Gjallarhorn Nerf gun that's currently available for pre-order, there's good news - you'll be able to buy an in-game version of it separately at some point. Fans of Destiny 2 will no doubt be very familiar with the Gjallarhorn, one of the FPS game's most iconic weapons. The rocket launcher became famous for being one of the best Destiny exotics in the original game's first year.

Now, developer Bungie has partnered with the Hasbro-owned Nerf toy brand to offer a 1:1 scale replica of the gun, which will set you back a whopping $185 USD (roughly £154 GBP / €182 EUR). The blaster is an impressive piece that measures in at over a metre in length and replicates the weapon's famous wolfpack rounds with "the first ever Nerf mega dart shells" that fire off clusters of three darts at a time.

It's not just the price that's a limiting factor, though. The model is only available from July 7 - 21 as part of an early access pre-order window for players with the Bungie 30th anniversary content pack who have already earned the Gjallarhorn in-game prior to the window opening. That means if you don't already have it, you're out of luck for now - although Bungie says that "remaining units will be made available to everyone after the early access window."

     The Quake mods community has a new home

There are many great Quake mods out there but there's never really been a decent hub for the FPS game's modding community to easily get together, share mods, discuss them, and assist creators. New Quake community site Slipgate Sightseer aims to do just that.

Slipgate Sightseer - or Slipseer, to use its catchy URL name - is now officially up in beta and it's designed to be a new home for the Quake modding community. From the first page, you can easily check out new maps and mods, alongside reviews, discussions, and help for anyone trying modding for themselves.

PCGamesN got in touch with a member of the development team, Michael Markie - who is also a composer, sound designer, and level designer for 3D Realms and Slipgate Ironworks. Michael describes Slipseer as a "community hub primarily for Quake singleplayer content creators and players, where creators can upload, manage, and discuss their content on a modern site."

     Find Terraria sky islands easily with this one weird trick

Making your way up to the Terraria sky islands is a great way to boost your power early on in the crafting game, and one resourceful player has highlighted a little-known trick that lets you spot their location easily. Normally, trying to track down the floating island bases among the indie game's clouds prior to having some form of flight can be quite a painstaking process, but this reliable tell makes it easy to know when one is nearby - making it a great way to nab some powerful early-game gear.

Reddit user SageWayren posted the nifty trick to the game's subreddit, where it rapidly gained almost 10,000 upvotes (at the time of writing) from players who were shocked to learn about such a useful method that they hadn't discovered before. SageWayren says they've been using it for quite a while, but decided to share it when they realised that it wasn't mentioned anywhere in the game's extensive wiki.

The method is deceptively simple - all you need to do is head out on a scouting mission across your world's surface layer, keeping an eye out for any small puddles of water that are two blocks deep. When you find one, just run a rope straight upwards from the ground (or whatever your preferred climbing method may be) and you'll arrive perfectly at a floating island high up above. Here, you can crack open any chests and oftentimes get your hands on some strong equipment such as wings or a sword that summons shooting stars. Just keep an eye out for the harpies!

     A single-player Apex Legends FPS game is in the works

Apex Legends developer Respawn Entertainment is hiring for a new single-player Apex Legends FPS game, which it calls an 'Apex universe FPS incubation title.' The new project, which is currently unnamed, is described as "a developer's dream playground with the freedom to innovate made possible by the unique universe it inhabits." Sadly, it probably isn't Titanfall 3, despite that series being the origin point for EA's battle royale game.

Several job listings for the project, including a senior systems engineer and a hard surface artist, were spotted by Dexerto on the Respawn careers page. The descriptions are fairly vague, as might be expected, but they do say that the project will be single-player and that it will be set in the Apex Legends universe.

Respawn did announce previously that they were working on a new IP which was described in January by Giant Bomb reporter Jeff Grubb as a "triple-A first-person shooter," although it's not clear whether this is that project or whether it's a separate thing altogether.

     Invader Zim actor slams Smite Nickelodeon crossover

The new Smite Nickelodeon crossover is "disrespectful" according to Invader Zim actor Richard Horvitz, who has slammed the animation house and developer Hi-Rez Studios because they "would not go union" with the MOBA game collab - leaving him unable to voice Zim once more.

In June, platform fighting game Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl finally had voice acting added for free, including most of the original actors voicing the various cartoon icons - such as Richard Horvitz as Invader Zim. Now, just one month later, Invader Zim is back in Smite - and Horvitz is not voicing him.

The Smite crossover contains the Nick characters Rocko, XJ9 Freya, Danny Phantom, Powdered Toast Man, and of course, Invader Zim. Seemingly, none of these characters are voiced by their original actors, and Richard Horvitz says this is because Hi-Rez Studios "would not go union."

DNF Duel

DNF Duel is another fighting game made in collaboration with powerhouse Arc System Works. For those who are fairly deep into the early MMORPG scene or play a lot of Korean MMOs, Dungeon Fighter Online remained a staple since its original release in the mid-2000s. Arc System Works adapted the core strengths of this title and incorporated its signature style into what turned into an exciting and approachable fighter.

Ark System Works managed to retain the essence of each of the original classes from Dungeon Fighter Online in DNF Duel. I was particularly surprised at how well the Ranger, which was my main during the short period of time I played the MMORPG, translated into a fighting game. Staple attacks from the MMO appear in his move list, with animations almost identical to the sweeping kick he can perform.

DNF Duel

Each animation is particularly punchy, with snappy, over-exaggerated movements making each action feel particularly dynamic. In retrospect, it almost feels natural that a fighting game would somehow manifest from the Dungeon Fighter Online series. Arc System Works nails the general feel of each of these classes. Every character looks good and works well. The Hitman is the standout for me among the roster. Mostly because I loved his design, his ability to balance medium range projectiles (which are really just short bursts of rounds sprayed from his SMG), and the long, sweeping slashes of his sword.

I found each character relatively easy to pick up, which was great. I honestly fall between the "average fighting game enjoyer" and "someone who really wants to be better at fighting games but never nails the execution" range. DNF Duel made every character feel approachable, with combos being easy to execute even for the most inexperienced of players. It doesn't take the same kind of finesse or intense concentration as earlier Arc System Works, like previous iterations of Guilty Gear or BlazBlue. This makes the game feel a bit more approachable.

The more complex aspects of the game are relegated to an MP bar that will charge up over the duration of the match. Using certain attacks will drain the MP bar, and these are usually the flashiest and most powerful. Thankfully, the gauge refills relatively quickly and only after a few seconds of consuming a percentile of your bar. This works similar to a "super" bar in other fighting games, with the addition of being able to convert damage into MP.

DNF Duel

Additionally DNF Duel has a story mode that allows people to fight their way through scenarios tailored for each individual character. Playing through the Hitman's story had me chasing down leads with an assassination bureau, whereas the Vagabond's storyline saw me pursuing a supposed worthy opponent. While the end result is mostly the same, with the final battle for the story mode culminating in similar events, it's a nice bite-sized adventure that allows the cast of characters to interact with one another. Albeit it is on a mostly surface level, as the narrative really isn't anything to write home about. The story mode isn't as lengthy as Granblue Fantasy Versus', for example. However, you do get to unlock a secret character by beating the story mode for the first time.

The story mode is where the single player experience ends, as the rest of DNF Duel is relegated to online or couch co-op fights. The general experience of the player may vary based on their skill level and what they're looking to achieve through online play. I'm not a particularly competitive person, so I didn't mind getting beaten time and time again by a player that was infinitely more skilled than I was. I was just happy that there was little to no lag. This made the duels at least feel fair in one regard, even as I was getting pummeled into the ground by Strikers and Berserkers.

DNF Duel

Since DNF Duel uses the same visual style as Guilty Gear Strive, the game looks great. The cel-shaded art style really brings out the best in the character designs and effects. However, its backgrounds feel somewhat lackluster by comparison. There are a few that stand out, like a warmly lit tavern and the white stone square in a costal city, but the other arenas feel like they're just there. In regards to the score, there wasn't any piece of music that was particularly memorable. Which is odd, considering Arc System Works' history of having incredible and distinct soundtracks for games.

Surprisingly, DNF Duel doesn't have an English language audio option. It instead opts for Korean, Chinese, and Japanese dubs. That isn't to say the voice acting isn't great, particularly the Japanese dub of the game. Those with a honed ear will be able to pick up familiar voice actors reprising their roles.

Overall, DNF Duel is a great fighting game. It appeals to casual players, while still offering a fair bit of complexity to keep more experienced players entertained. It's definitely a title I'll go back to from time to time. Ultimately, it feels like a game that could develop a consistent following in the years to come. If it gets the right opportunity, that is.

DNF Duel is available for the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, and PC.

     Fans burned by Diablo Immortal excited by Diablo 3 season 27

While many longtime series fans have made the decision to quit playing Diablo Immortal, some of them aren't letting that get in the way of their love of loot, and are instead looking forward to the Diablo 3 season 27 release date. The ARPG game's newest seasonal update is getting some players excited with the release of the PTR preview and update 2.7.4 patch notes, which feature a new item called Angelic Crucibles that can apply unique class-specific sanctified powers to your build.

The biggest highlight from the Diablo 3 season 27 update that arrives on the PTR on July 12, Angelic Crucibles are artifacts that can be used to 'sanctify' any equippable level 70 legendary item. Sanctified items gain two specific benefits - firstly, they are reforged to have perfect ancient-level stats on all the item's affixes while still preserving its legendary power. The real excitement, however, comes from the addition of one of three new, unique, class-specific powers to the sanctified item.

Each class has three sanctified powers to choose from. For example, the Barbarian's first option causes whirlwind to pull in and hold nearby enemies. The second causes the powerful Hammer of the Ancients ability to hit in all directions and applies a shockwave effect to every seventh cast. The third generates Tempest Rhythm stacks when hitting enemies, which can then be consumed using Wrath of the Beserker to debuff all nearby enemies, causing them to take increased damage based on the number of stacks.

     Elden Ring dev's website is now Armored Core, suspiciously

It was recently confirmed by Elden Ring director Hidetaka Miyazaki that the next From Software game is currently in the "final stages" of development and the most likely candidate is a new Armored Core game. Now, to add fuel to the fire, the official From Software website has received a rebrand - to 'Armored Core.'

We've known since 2016 that From Software has had at least three games in development, with two being Sekiro and Elden Ring. The third is still a mystery but in a recent interview, Miyazaki suggests it is close to completion - and a survey sent out in January showed screenshots, details, and even footage of a "third-person shooter mecha action title."

With Armored Core 6 possibly about to get an imminent announcement, the community was somewhat shocked to discover that the official From Software website appears to have been renamed "Armored Core" on Google - igniting speculation, especially as the series isn't even first up on the page.

     Genshin Impact 3.0 Dendro element explained in Sumeru teaser

Hoyoverse has now released a new Sumeru teaser video featuring several of the anime game's developers explaining the Geshin Impact 3.0 Dendro element. This isn't the first we've seen of Dendro - with several notable leaks occurring in recent weeks - but this more official look breaks down some of the design process that went into implementing it into the open-world game. The element is described as the "last piece of the puzzle in Genshin Impact's seven element system," and the team at Hoyoverse says that it was built very much with synergy in mind.

Genshin Impact combat designer Aquaria points to three key terms that directed the design of the Dendro element - "catalysis, wisdom, and life." The Greek term 'dendro' means tree, which helps to convey that sense of growth and nature that Hoyoverse seems to be aiming for. Dendro is already present in Genshin Impact and is used for items such as grass, shrubs, and wooden barrels - all of which react to Pyro elemental attacks by burning, as you might expect. It's also applied to several enemies with wooden shields that can be burnt away, as well the shy, overgrown Dendro slimes.

The arrival of the Sumeru region for update 3.0 brings with it playable new Dendro characters who will be able to wield the element themselves. For Hoyoverse, this meant designing new reactions to encourage players to utilise Genshin Impact's elemental synergies. Aquaria talks about how previous synergies such as Electro-Charged (the combination of Hydro and Electro to charge up and continuously zap wet enemies) are often based on everyday phenomena, but also combine their aspects - in this case, the recovery of Hydro and the energy of Electro.

Anna Megill joined Playground Games in February 2021 as lead writer on the new Fable RPG game, according to her LinkedIn page and enthusiastic tweets. Cut to July 2022 and she is now the narrative lead of the new Fable game's story, a position Megill previously held on Remedy's Control - a game PCGamesN praised for its storytelling, incidentally.

Aside from Control, Anna Megill also wrote for Ubisoft's upcoming Avatar game Frontiers of Pandora, the fantastic Dishonored: Death of the Outsider expansion, and both Guild Wars and Guild Wars 2. Oh, yes, and a Littlest Pet Shop Flash game too.

genshin impact sumeru

HoYoVerse released a short trailer for the upcoming Sumeru region and Dendro element in Genshin Impact. Sumeru will be part of Version 3.0, which will go live after the next update, Version 2.8. While Dendro is an existing element in the game, Sumeru will be the first time players will be able to use it. As well, Dendro will react with elements other than Pyro.


The Sumeru trailer features the Genshin Impact development team discussing how it implemented and chose to design Dendro in the game. According to the trailer, the concepts 'catalysis, wisdom, and life' were key in how the team designed the elemental reactions, level designs, and environmental puzzles. An example of a Sumeru environmental mechanic seems to be a mushroom that the Traveler can jump on like a trampoline.

Version 3.0 will introduce the Bloom and Catalyze reactions. Bloom is Hydro and Dendro, while Catalyze is Electro and Dendro. The video does not explain what the reactions do. However, it does mention that you will be able to use elements to alter states of Dendro objects and monsters. Depending on the state, Dendro monsters will have different attacks, as well as drop different items.

Genshin Impact is readily available on PS4, PS5, Windows PC, and mobile devices. A Nintendo Switch version is in the work. Version 2.8 will launch on July 13, 2022, with Sumeru appearing in Genshin Impact 3.0. There is no confirmed release date as of yet for Version 3.0.

mob psycho nendoroid header

Good Smile Company has opened up pre-orders for a Shigeo "Mob" Kageyama Nendoroid, so make sure you give the Mob Psycho 100 protagonist plenty of notice before you call him in. Pre-orders are open until September 1, 2022. He costs 6,500 JPY and will ship out in December 2022 for Japan. Meanwhile, North American customers can purchase him for $47.99 and he has a release window of February 2023.

[gallery columns="4" ids="931936,931935,931934,931933" link="file"]

The Mob Nendoroid will come with three faceplate options. You can make him have his normal blank expression, a blushing expression, or an awakened expression. The awakened expression is what he looks like when he reaches 100% and loses control. There is also a spiky hair part to fully re-create his 100% form. Other optional parts include Dimple, a bent spoon, a bowl of ramen, and a pair of chopsticks.

Good Smile Company first showed off the Mob Nendoroid at Anime Expo 2022. An Arataka Reigen Nendoroid is also in development, and it seems to be in the final stages. The Reigen Nendoroid will appear for pre-order in the near future. Both the Mob and Reigen Nendoroids are from Mob Psycho 100 Season 3, which will air in Japan and on Crunchyroll in October 2022. Crunchyroll also has the first two seasons available, as well as the Reigen The Miraculous Unknown Psychic OVA.

FGO Summer 2022

The English edition of Fate/Grand Order will soon host its annual summer event, and this year's theme is a summer camp. The FGO Summer 2022 event is formally titled "Servant Summer Camp ~Chaldea's Thriller Night~".

Players will investigate a new singularity located in Japan. But it's not beach hijinks, this time. Instead, the Masters of Chaldea and their Servants will retreat to an idyllic lakeside cabin resort. Of course, there's more to the FGO Summer 2022 event than meets the eye. For with mountain vacationing comes the prospect of ghost stories.

Check out a trailer for the event below.



Key to the FGO Summer 2022 event is Yu Mei-ren, star of Lostbelt No. 3. She's this year's free event Servant. She'll join the roster as a 4-Star Lancer-class character. As a former Chaldea master herself and the players' "Senpai", she'll assist during the event story. As for the event itself, it'll use a day-night cycle in its quest structure. Consequently, certain quests will be limited to certain times of the day, which is advanced alongside progress. Finally, objective-based missions can also be accomplished to further quest progress and unlock rewards.

With a new summer event comes new playable summer-themed Servants. The limited-time FGO Summer 2022 Servants split over two banners. One banner holds Summer Sessyoin Kiara, a 5-Star Mooncancer, and 4-Star variants of Illyasviel von Einzbern (an Archer) and Brynhilde (a Berserker). A second banner promotes Abigail Williams, a 5-Star Foreigner-class. Summer Abby is accompanied by two 4-Stars. Summer Tomoe Gozen is a Saber-class, nicknamed "Beat Saber Tomoe" by some fans. Murasaki Shikibu trades her Caster-class for a Rider designation.

Fans of male Servants aren't left in the dark this year either. Players can unlock summer-themed Spiritron Dress costumes for Sigurd, Emiya (Archer), and Prince of Lan Ling. A separate summon banner puts the three on rate-up.

Fate/Grand Order is available on iOS and Android devices. The FGO Summer 2022 event runs from July 12, 2022 until August 1, 2022.

Made in Abyss Binary Star

With the approach of Made in Abyss: Binary Star Falling into Darkness' English release date, Spike Chunsoft is revealing in more detail what the game's actually about. A new system trailer for Made in Abyss Binary Star debuted on the Spike Chunsoft official channel on July 7, 2022.

Check it out below.


The Made in Abyss Binary Star system trailer lays out the game's structure in more detail. In particular, its two playable narrative modes are explained. "Hello Abyss" mode follows the plot of the anime, and stars Riko. Meanwhile "Deep in Abyss" mode stars a player-created character. Their name is "Aki", though players can customize this novice "Bell" Cave Raider. Deep in Abyss follows an original story written by Made in Abyss creator Akihito Tsukushi. It'll involve known characters from the series, though.

The trailer also laid out how players will progress the story in Made in Abyss Binary Star Falling into Darkness. First, they'll complete quests, which involve exploring the Abyss. Jiruo and the Cave Raider Guild issue most quests.

In keeping with the themes of the series, the Abyss is a dark, dangerous place. Even with adequate supplies, players will suffer from the Curse of the Abyss as they return to base. The curse intensifies the further they descend, and symptoms include vomiting, statistical penalties or bleeding from their orifices. This renders them vulnerable to environmental hazards and monster attacks.

Of course, the risks of Made in Abyss Binary Star are not without rewards. Successful expeditions net relics, which you can sell. Expeditions also reward experience used to level up. New story missions require Abyss exploration to unlock.

The Spike Chunsoft blog has more detail on the systems of Made in Abyss: Binary Star Falling into Darkness, and can be read at this link.

Made in Abyss will release on Nintendo Switch, PS4, and PC on September 2, 2022. Crunchyroll hosts the second season of the anime adaptation, airing now.
