There's a dramatic scene in Nier: Automata in which a desperate, downtrodden android commands his AI companion to cease all logical functions. The AI, sensible thing that it is, warns him that there's almost no chance this will end well. Our hero knows this, of course; he does it anyway. This leads to one of the most…

     Tower of Fantasy weapons, tiers, types, and upgrades explained

Want to know what the best Tower of Fantasy weapons are and how to upgrade them? Blades, bows, and other weapons are actually one of the most defining features of the anime game but, in a fairly unique Gacha mechanic, Tower of Fantasy's characters do not have their own traits, types, or powers. They're more like glorified skins because the stats all lie in their relative weapons.

In Tower of Fantasy, you play as one playable character all along, rather than building a party like in Genshin Impact. That character can then wield any loadout of desired weapons, obtained through banners and events, while unlocked characters are worn as skins, providing no advantage in battle. Each time you draw for a new character, you'll get both the character and their weapon together. Here's what you need to know about Tower of Fantasy weapons.

Total War: Warhammer 3's Champions of Chaos DLC is about The Chaos Warriors, who were the stars of the very first DLC for Total War: Warhammer back in 2016. Back then, they were a pre-order bonus that was eventually offered free to everyone who bought the game in its first week on sale, and they played differently to the four factions included in the base game. Now, Total War: Warhammer 3's first DLC sees the strategy game series finally circle back to the faction, which has struggled to keep pace with newer lists.

     Fortnite Capsule Corps – how to find the capsules

Want to know where to find the Fortnite Capsule Corps capsules? Throughout the Fortnite Dragon Ball event, you will see orange beams of light crashing onto the island. These are the sources of the capsules. Should you reach these artefacts, opening them will grant you two of the best items currently in the battle royale game: the Fortnite Kamehameha item and the Nimbus.

Since you need to open the Fortnite Capsule Corp capsules to complete some of the Fortnite Dragon Ball quests, it's worth seeking them out. Hoi-Poi Capsules, otherwise known as DynoCaps, are an item seen throughout the Dragon Ball manga and anime - which you can watch in-game with our Fortnite Dragon Ball episode codes - and can fit anything you can imagine into their tiny frames. Their contents in Fortnite are more limited in scope but not lacking in power.

     Multiversus tier list August 2022: best characters ranked

Are you looking for a Multiversus tier list? The Warner Bros fighting game is still in open beta with its release date delayed for the foreseeable future, with many players gaining access to its colourful cast of characters for the first time. Soon, we will know who the most powerful characters are, from DC Superheroes such as Batman and Wonder Woman to Cartoon Network favourites like Finn the Human and Steven Universe. We even have throwback characters from Warner Bros' back catalogue of shows acquired over the years, including Shaggy and Velma from Scooby Doo.

With such an illustrious gathering of fighters, a Multiversus tier list was inevitable. Judging by other competitive multiplayer games, ranking these fighters goes beyond looking at their individual abilities. Multiversus focuses on team-based combat, with each fighter broken down into roles such as Bruiser and Tank. In order to create the definitive Multiversus tier list, we looked at how well each fighter interacts with their partner and how good they are on their own. If your roster is looking a little thin, take a look at our guide to unlock characters in Multiversus, so you can be sure to spend your hard-won currency on the best fighters in the game.

     Sons of the Forest release date and everything we know so far

It's been a long time coming, but the Sons of the Forest release date is finally approaching once more. The anticipated survival horror game was slated for release in May 2022, but developer Endnight Games deemed this date "overly ambitious", pushing its release to late 2022. Thankfully, there's been no further word that another delay is on the cards  though, of course, we make no promises.

Beyond announcements concerning the Sons of the Forest release date, Endnight Games is keeping details about the game remarkably close to its chest. Aside from a handful of creepy teaser trailers, we've been kept in the dark about what players can expect. The Sons of the Forest Steam page is similarly brief, but promises crafting, co-op, and yes – cannibals.

One of the many new Fortnite Dragon Ball quests asks you to watch an episode of the popular series within the confines of the battle royale game. Mercifully, you don't need to survive an entire match to complete this challenge, as it's all centred around Fortnite's creative mode.

To watch the Fortnite Dragon Ball episodes, you need to enter island codes. You can do this by selecting mode at the main menu, clicking the Island Code tab, then entering one of the 12-digit codes found here. Redeeming this code will unlock the 'Dragon Ball Super Episode Festival', where players can watch full episodes of the recent anime.

     Fortnite Kamehameha locations – how to find the Nimbus

Unlike Goku in Dragon Ball, you don't have to train with Master Roshi to get the Fortnite Kamehameha. Instead, like most weapons in the popular battle royale game, you need to pick up an item to use this incredible technique. Once you do, you'll have an incredibly powerful, albeit rather sluggish, beam attack at your disposal.

Upon picking up a Fortnite Kamehameha item, you'll be able to unleash a burst of energy up to three times. Firing the weapon launches you into the air and blasts all objects and enemies in the area. The Kamehameha does 100 damage on impact and 40 damage every second (for a total duration of three seconds) to targets inside its blast. After firing off a beam, you will need to wait 15 seconds for it to recharge. It's possible to clash with Kamehameha waves to avoid damage, though your timing needs to be perfect. The Nimbus is a reusable tool that launches you into the air before slowly floating down to the ground. You have to wait to use the same Nimbus cloud for 20 seconds, but it will never run out.

     Apex Legends tier list: the best Legends to use in Season 14

Want to know who tops our Apex Legends tier list? With the release of Vantage, Apex Legends players now have 22 Legends to choose from when taking on the battle royale known as the Apex Games. Each Legend has their own skills, playstyle, and personality, with plenty of choice for every type of player, whether you like to be aggressive, defensive, or offensive to the senses (cough – Caustic – cough).

Your ideal Legend pick depends on your strengths and weaknesses – your experience, gamesense, movement skills, and aim all factor in, as does your squad composition and whether you're playing with friends or a team of strangers. That said, although all the characters are relatively balanced, there are some Legends who have pulled away from the pack due to their powerful abilities, and some who are more niche picks. Our Apex Legends tier list aims to give you a quick look at the current Legend meta.

We've ordered the Legends here in order of general effectiveness, to help you decide who to play if you're after the big win. We're aiming this list at the average player who has a reasonable grasp of the game, but we'll also point out the best characters for absolute beginners, and mention the ones you'll see in top tier competitive play.

     The best Indian VPN services in 2022

So you're looking for the best Indian VPN? We thought you might be. Call it a hunch. Well, we've picked out five top providers that will give you a chance to connect through an Indian server when outside the country. To clarify, these are services with Indian servers, rather than VPN businesses based in India.

If you do plan on using an Indian VPN service, then there's something that you need to keep in mind. Servers which are physically located in India cannot provide you with the same level of privacy as those located in certain other countries due to Indian laws. VPN providers who have physical servers located in India are required to keep logs on the activities of those using them.

If your priority is something other than privacy, then that won't be a problem. That said, if you want the most private VPN services, then you'll have to pick one that uses virtual servers instead. Fortunately, many of the best VPN services offer virtual servers, and we have recommendations for both kinds below.

Maid Cafe at Electric Street

A Japanese-style maid cafe management game will appear on PCs. Adventurer's Tavern, an indie game studio based in Shanghai, China, has set up a Steam page for Maid Cafe at Electric Street. The game will be available with subtitles in English, Japanese, and Simplified Chinese.

Maid Cafe at Electric Street will take place in a Japanese city. The player will become a maid cafe manager. Some of the main objectives in this game will be to grow the maid cafe business and interact with the staff maids.

Most of the in-game activities will contribute to improving the cafe quality and staff interactions. For example, the player can go shopping to purchase decorations to place for the cafe interior or trading cards to share with the maids. They can also try to recruit more girls to the staff team.

The pixel art game will be playable on most PCs. Its minimum requirements will consist of 2 GB RAM, a 2.50 GHz processor, and Intel HD Graphics 4400. It will also require at least 2 GB of free space.

Maid Cafe at Electric Street will be available on PCs via Steam. Adventurer's Tavern has yet to announce a release window for the game as of this writing.

Doraemon Story of Seasons Release Date

The next entry in the Doraemon Story of Seasons series is closing in. Bandai Namco unveiled the global version of Friends of the Great Kingdom's full release date, as well as a new trailer. The Doraemon Story of Seasons release date is scheduled for November 2, 2022. It'll land on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 5, and PC via Steam on the same day.

The release date trailer for Doraemon Story of Seasons: Friends of the Great Kingdom reveals more about the game and some of its additions.

Doraemon Story of Seasons: Friends of the Great Kingdom takes place on the planet of Illuma. Noby, Doraemon, and their friends travel there and meet a new companion, Lumis. They agree to live on his farm and help him achieve his dreams. As in the previous game, they'll raise animals and plant and harvest crops in the classic Story of Seasons approximation of farm life. Additional gameplay is enabled by Doraemon's signature Secret Gadgets. The graphics have been improved for the sequel, with enhanced lighting and an emphasis on Illuma's natural beauty.  The game includes two-player cooperative mode online that allows players to farm in pairs.

one piece film red box office

Within ten days of the official debut of One Piece Film: Red, the latest One Piece movie has already broken previous box office records. Over five hundred thousand people attended the movie, and it has made 7.06 billion JPY. That is over $53 million. This means that, just over a week after its initial release, One Piece Film: Red is the most successful One Piece movie in the franchise.

So far, the movie is available in Japan and France. Taiwan theaters will air it from August 19, while China will premiere it on August 21, 2022. As for territories such as North America, Australia, and New Zealand, Crunchyroll will distribute it in Fall 2022. It will also premiere in Fall 2022 for the UK and Ireland.

Check out the latest trailer for the film below.

The plot of One Piece Film: Red focuses a lot on music. The characters are attending Uta's music festival, and quite a bit of the promotional material prior to the movie's debut featured music videos of songs that are in the film. Though Kaori Nazuka (Soul Eater, Code Geass) voices Uta in the plot, singer Ado provides her singing voice. On August 16, 2022, Spotify Japan also announced that Ado's album for One Piece Film: Red was number five on the service's global debut albums.

One Piece Film: Red is available in theaters in Japan.

Tokyo Game Show TGS VR 2022

Tokyo Game Show 2022 will see the return of VR booths that debuted in the previous year. CESA has revealed details for the TGS 2022 VR booths that people will access remotely online. The dungeon-themed virtual booths will be open for the same duration as the physical event on September 15-18, 2022.

While the VR venue will primarily feature Japanese game publishers, two of the notable booths will feature Kojima Productions and Cover. The former is a game development studio headed by Hideo Kojima. After it released Death Stranding, the independent studio is working on its sequel while cooperating with both Sony and Microsoft. Cover is the company best known for managing the popular VTuber group Hololive.

Besides Kojima Productions and Cover, TGS 2022 will have VR booths from major Japanese game publishers, such as Bandai Namco, Capcom, Koei Tecmo Games, Konami, Square Enix, Sega, and Atlus. It will also have booths dedicated to specific brands like Magic: The Gathering and the VR game Dyschronia: Chronos Alternate.

The VR venue appeared first in TGS 2021. It was intended for the general public that could not attend the restricted physical venue. TGS 2022 will be a full hybrid event that brings back physical booths with public access while retaining the online VR venue and live streams. Brand-based VR spaces are growing in popularity as social programs like VRChat and Cluster provide places for remote users to congregate. Developer Lasengle created a Fate/Grand Order "metaverse" space to celebrate the 5th Anniversary of the global release.

The 2022 Tokyo Game Show will take place on September 15-18, 2022.

fortnite dragon ball

If you thought Naruto with a gun was a bizarre sight, then get ready for Goku with one in the Dragon Ball Super crossover event in Fortnite. Aside from Goku, you can get cosmetics that will make you look like Vegeta, Bulma, or Beerus. It is part of Update v21.40, which debuted on August 16, 2022. Epic Games teased this event just a few days prior.

There is also a short trailer showing off how the Dragon Ball characters look like in Fortnite. You will be able to run around as Goku, shoot Kamehamehas at each other, and watch Dragon Ball Super in the Dragon Ball Adventure Island. Aside from using Shenron as a mount, you can also ride on the Kitoun flying cloud.

It is a given that, if you want to obtain the Shenron glider, you must first collect all seven Dragon Balls. There will be seven sets of Quests that will grant a Dragon Ball each when you complete them.

Other events on Dragon Ball Adventure Island include Versus Boards, which replace Bounty Boards. After you and a rival interact with a board on the Island, you must find each other (your opponent will be on your map) and defeat them within five minutes. You can also find the Kame house on the Island, where you can get items from Bulma.

Fortnite is available on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, Nintendo Switch, Windows PC, and mobile devices. The Dragon Ball Super crossover event in Fortnite is running for a limited time.

Call of Dragons

Farlight Games, which handled the global release of the gacha RPG Dislyte, announced its next project. It's called Call of Dragons, and is a real-time strategy game. It's developed by Legou, which created Rise of Kingdoms, another mobile strategy game. Pre-registration is open via the official website.

Call of Dragons bills itself as an MMO-style strategy game that takes place on a "massive, infinitely zoomable map" in real time. Players are given control over their own faction and tasked with building up their village and armies. They'll be able to battle solo and in cooperative play with other players. Some co-op modes involve fighting massive raid bosses, involving up to 40 other players. PVP is involved too, as players compete and battle directly with their legions.

Check out a preview trailer for Call of Dragons below.

The game is set in the fantasy world of Tamaris, where players will quest and battle. Quests and exploration yield rewards, like Song Fragments that unlock story details and lore, or rare upgrade items and equipment for their hero units. They'll also tame dragons to use as mounts, summon into battle, or field directly in their armies during Call of Dragons matches.

In the longer term, players can also form large alliances with other Call of Dragons players, pooling resources and cooperating in large-scale events.

Call of Dragons is in development for Android and iOS devices. Its global launch is scheduled for 2022.

Wave Race 64 Switch Online

Nintendo revealed Wave Race 64 is coming to the Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack game library. The game will be available to play for Expansion Pack subscribers starting August 19, 2022. The game will be available worldwide.

Originally released in 1996, Wave Race 64 is a jetski racing game for the Nintendo 64. It is a sequel to Wave Race for the Game Boy. Unlike its predecessor, however, Wave Race 64 featured 3D graphics and was one of the first games to release for the N64 console. Notably, the game is commonly credited with helping Nintendo transition into 3D CG graphics. At the time of its release, Wave Race 64 was a commercial success and praised for its graphical fidelity. Nintendo later released the game on the Wii and Wii U virtual consoles.

This latest re-release will include all of the content of the original game. This includes the bonus "Reverse" difficulty level, various rider outfits, and even the ability to ride the dolphin. Furthermore, the game also supports local two-player split-screen play. As with previous N64 re-releases, the game will also support custom button bindings for the Joy-Con.

You can check out more gameplay for Wave Race 64 in the video below:

Wave Race 64 will join the Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack library on August 19, 2022. The game is available to play on N64, as well as the Wii and Wii U Virtual Console.

     Regiments Review (45)Being a kid during the Cold War meant dealing with the fact that you could find yourself turning into a handful of radioactive ash at any moment. But for the dads, it meant playing out the what-if scenarios of war breaking out in hex-and-chit games. I guess the kids all grew up and are nostalgic for that because Regiments just released, adding to the list of Cold War Gone Hot games we have coming out right now. Unlike Wargame, which used to have several campaigns covering different scenarios of the hypothetical popping off, Regiments is focused on a single possible conflict. With unrest sparking in Poland and Germany (where you actually get to participate in the action), and then spilling out into a larger war, you alternate between NATO and Warsaw Pact forces from operation to operation.   Tactical operational art of war "Operation" is what Regiments calls its campaigns, though they're closer to scenario bundles. Operations can be of variable size and length, wi...

     Evil West Delayed NovemberEvil West has impressed plenty of people so far with its gory action set in the Wild West, but those eager to play the game will have to wait a bit longer. Earlier today, Focus Entertainment and Flying Wild Hog announced that Evil West has been delayed to "ensure that the game reaches its full potential." Previously the game was set to release on September 20, but with this delay, Evil West will release on November 22. At this point, delays aren't anything unusual in the game industry. In fact, we saw another high-profile title get hit with a delay last week with Hogwarts Legacy. Recent reactions at PAX East indicate that players had a good time with Evil West, though, so it's at least on good footing.   Evil West gets hit with a delay Evil West's delay is unfortunate, but more development time should make for a better product. And it's certainly a unique game in more ways than one. First and foremost, it looks to have that same satisfying actio...

     Immortals Fenyx Rising pc game pass august 2022August is turning out to be a good month for PC Game Pass subscribers. Today, Microsoft outlined the next batch of games coming to the service. And it's a nice list. We're getting another Ubisoft game soon, as Immortals Fenyx Rising is heading to PC Game Pass in two weeks. It's joined by seven others, most of which shouldn't be ignored.

     Amd Ryzen 7000 Specs release date september performance gaming zen 4 cpu priceAMD seems to have pushed back the release date of the Ryzen 7000 CPU lineup to September 27. Previously, it was thought that AMD would launch the next-generation processors on September 15. This new launch date is expected to be announced at a reveal event that takes place towards the end of August. And this has reportedly been confirmed by several leak sources and WCCFTech. As of now, it's unclear why AMD decided to push the release date back by two weeks. What makes things interesting is that Intel is hosting its Innovation event on September 27 as well. Perhaps AMD wants to make sure Intel doesn't overshadow its next big announcement. It's also worth noting that this schedule shift isn't confirmed just yet. Until we hear from AMD directly, it's just rumor.   A big performance jump is coming Users may have to wait longer for AMD's Ryzen 7000 CPUs in September, but the wait could be worthwhile.

     Two Point Campus is built on the very same foundations that the excellent Two Point Hospital was. In fact, it does feel a lot like Two Point Games slapped a new theme on their hospital management game and called it a day. That's an oversimplification, of course - a lot of work has gone into Two Point Campus, it's themes and a few new mechanics. But it's important to temper your expectations going into this second entry in the growing Two Point County universe because if you do then you'll discover another satisfying, enjoyable management title with plenty of fun changes under the hood. If you want the shortest possible review, then here it is in all of its cliched glory: if you liked Two Point Hospital, you'll probably like Two Point Campus.
