Years ago, a never-officially-released Warcraft point-and-click adventure game developed by Blizzard in the late '90s was leaked online. While the game was completely playable back then, its cutscenes were low-quality, highly compressed, not perfectly synced to the audio, and a few were even just straight up missing…

Digimon Survive, the new video game made in celebration of the anime's 25th anniversary, attempts to juggle being both a visual novel and a tactical role-playing game.

I've probably written this before on this very website, but whenever someone asks me what my favorite video game is, my default answer is Half-Life 2. So any game that tries to capture Half-Life 2's excellent mix of exploration, action, puzzle-solving, and emptiness has my attention. And if that game succeeds and also…

Bungie's pinnacle PvP activity is back in rotation with a major revamp, and if you're looking for details on the Destiny 2 Trials rewards this week, you've come to the right place. Before you start working your way up through the ladder, you'll want to know what you're actually working for - so here's a breakdown of what's available each week, and what map you'll be playing on.
If you're not familiar with Trials of Osiris, it's a weekly PvP challenge where you enter a competitive gauntlet of 3v3 elimination matches. Your rewards are now doled out with a reputation system, so it's not about pure wins anymore, but you will still get special rewards if you can manage to go flawless.
Trials lands with the reset every Friday at 10am PDT / 1pm EDT / 6pm BST, and lasts until the Tuesday reset at those same times. Each week provides a new set of rewards and a new map to play on, so here's what you can expect for the latest rotation.Destiny 2 classes, Destiny 2 exotics, Destiny 2 builds

Looking for the Destiny 2 Xur location? Xûr is Destiny 2's Exotic gear merchant. He appears every weekend to sell the game's most coveted items in exchange for Legendary shards, but if you're a casual player with limited shards to spend, it can be hard to know which items you should purchase from his inventory. That's where we come in.
Xûr provides random rolls and has done so since a change in 2020, so the Exotic merchant is providing plenty of excitement as he might arrive with a god roll. We'll update this Destiny 2 Xur location guide shortly after he arrives each week on Friday, so if you're reading this, you need only read on to learn where he is, and which are the best items he's selling this week.
While he jumps around from week to week, Xur's location has stuck to an established rotation for a while now, so it's easy to figure out where he is.Destiny 2 classes, Destiny 2 exotics, Destiny 2 builds

The promised day has arrived. Anime studio MAPPA held a special livestream event to unveil its adaptation of Tatsuki Fujimoto's hit manga. The Chainsaw Man trailer gave fans and onlookers the most substantial view yet of the series. It also revealed the show's principal voice cast.
Check out the Chainsaw Man trailer below.
The trailer shows off moments from the earlier chapters of the Chainsaw Man manga. Makima and a crew of devil hunters arrive at the scene of a massacre. Her narration lays out the background of the story. She refers to the advent of the Gun Devil following a gun-involved terror attack in the U.S. The view switches to Denji, still with Pochita. Shots of Denji's devil hunter partners Power and Aki Hayakawa in action are also shown off. The Chainsaw Man anime trailer closes out on a montage of battles, including the ones against the Bat Devil and Leech Devil. Aki uses his contracted Fox Devil, too.
The credits on the Chainsaw Man trailer reveal the show's main voice cast, with several new and lesser-known voice actors in key roles.
The voice actors for other characters like Kobeni, Reze, Himeno, and Beam have yet to be revealed.
The Chainsaw Man anime airs in October 2022. The world premiere of episode 1 will be held on September 9, 2022, in Japan. Crunchyroll will simulcast the series in most territories outside Japan and Asia. The Chainsaw Man manga is published in English by Viz Media.

A new Kirby Cafe branch will appear temporarily in Nagoya, Japan. Benelic has opened a new webpage for Kirby Cafe Nagoya, which will be open from September 15, 2022, to February 5, 2023. On August 12, 2022, the company will open reservations for cafe attendances up to November 30, 2022.
The Nagoya branch will have several exclusive entries on its menu. One of them will be a Waddle Dee-printed burger served with meat pasta and warm vegetables. The other will feature a hot dog with fried shrimp put literally inside Kirby's mouth. Visitors will also be able to order a Kirby-decorated peach parfait, and they can also bring the glass home by paying extra.
A store selling Kirby-themed merchandise will also appear nearby the cafe, and anyone will be able to visit it without needing a reservation. Benelic will reveal the goods lineup at a later time.
[gallery ids="933250,933249,933248" link="file"]
As of this writing, the Kirby Cafe has two permanent branches in Japan. The game character-branded cafe used to appear sporadically since at least 2016. The first permanent cafe appeared at Tokyo Skytree Town Solamachi in late 2019. Benelic then launched the second branch on Kyushu island at Canal City Hakata in Fukuoka. The company has yet to announce whether it has any plans to turn the new Nagoya branch into a permanent one as well.
Kirby Cafe Nagoya will appear on the second floor of Nagoya Parco from September 15, 2022, to February 5, 2023.

Developed by QCF Design, Desktop Dungeons earned a fair bit of praise back in the day. It won the Excellence in Design award at the Independent Games Festival in 2011, and it currently has a "very positive" user rating on Steam out of over 1,000 reviews. With this in mind, those who enjoy the idea of a simple, puzzle-based rogue-lite dungeon crawler will probably get their money's worth with the Special Edition on Steam. However, if this version of the game doesn't appeal to you for whatever reason, then perhaps the newly-announced remake dubbed Desktop Dungeons: Rewind will. From the press release, Desktop Dungeons: Rewind takes the simple, static art style of the original and reinterprets it using slightly more animated 3D models. That little bit of extra pizzazz to the visuals may appeal to those who found the original game a bit boring to look at. Don't worry about performing perfectly As the name implies, the major new feature of Desktop ...

AMD's upcoming Ryzen 7000 Series CPU lineup is planned to release in the fall. Ahead of this release, there have been rolling reveals slowly letting the public in on what this generation of processors and supporting motherboards will be like. Needless to say, plenty of leaked specs have emerged along the way. According to VideoCardz.com, the new AMD 7950X processor will reach frequencies up to 5.7 GHz, and the more-than-likely favorite for consumers, the 7600X, will manage 5.3 GHz. This leak means that AMD has focused heavily on bolstering the peak stock frequencies of its processors, with the top model being almost 800 MHz higher than the prior generation. We already knew the 7900X was capable of reaching 5.5 GHz on stock settings, and it appears this has been improved since even then. AMD is likely hesitant to confirm any leaks before the formal lineup reveal, and it makes sense because final tuning might be required to match Intel's Raptor Lake, while maintaining relativ...

Continuing its westward journey, American Truck Simulator has now formally expanded to the northwestern state of Montana. SCS made sure to keep Montana's charm and character throughout this condensed, virtual rendition. Known as the "Treasure State" and "Big Sky Country," Montana is home to just a smidge over 1 million people, large swaths of farmland, and heavy industries.Truth be told, though, it's the state's rural nature of the state that nearly caused me to write it off. Yet, I somehow managed to end this 9-hour road trip feeling far more satisfied than expected. My Montana adventure began by first picking up the new Western Star 57X and driving it to the northern tip of Idaho, which is one of the two states that border Montana. From there, I made my way to Thompson Falls before heading south to Missoula due to a blocked road . The detour allowed me to knock out two of the 15 settlements in one relatively quick go. I immediately ...
