Earlier this week was supposed to be a celebratory time for the folks at Meta, as its reality-devouring project Horizon Worlds was now available in more countries.

     Zhongli is the real star of the Genshin Impact 3.0 banner

If you're planning to roll for a new character in the Genshin Impact 3.0 banner, you're probably wondering if it should be Tighnari or Zhongli. And the answer is, almost unequivocally, Zhongli - assuming you don't have him in your team yet already. Sure, the reclusive founder of Liyue's biggest funeral home has been around the banner block a few times already and doesn't have that new update flash like Tighnari, but if you think you'll use the new Dendro element in any capacity, Zhongli is essential to your team in a way Tighnari cant quite match.

     Hogwarts Legacy animation makes fans happy they delayed the game

A clip of Hogwarts Legacy animation is making the rounds on Reddit, and not exactly for reasons that make the upcoming fantasy game look good. The (very brief) clip shows an NPC student walking along a path outside Hogwarts Castle, and it is, admittedly, very rough. The biggest issue commenters noticed is a backwards slide the character's dormant foot does when the other one is moving forward, almost like they're trying to moonwalk.

The FIFA 23 career mode is getting a smattering of new features before EA's partnership with football's governing body hangs up its boots and EA Sports FC takes its place in the sports game world. Career mode often plays second fiddle to Ultimate Team thanks to features like FIFA 23 Heroes, but that doesn't mean it's been left to wither.

The focus this year is very much on useful additions rather than major overhaul, including tweaks to both Player and Manager careers, as well as new teams and leagues to play with. Here are all of the new FIFA 23 career mode features and team changes announced so far for the 27 September release.

A new Genshin Impact leak points to HoYoverse adding a card game mode sometime after the Genshin Impact 3.0 update. Prominent Genshin leaker Mero recently stated that a Genshin Impact trading card game will be introduced to the popular RPG as a permanent mode in version 3.1. They also suggest that the card game will support PvE and possibly even PvP gameplay, which would be a first for Genshin Impact, and could be a notable step toward some meaningful endgame content being added to the game, which is notoriously dry once you finish the current round of Archon quests.

Excited to discover who made it onto the FIFA 23 Heroes list? FUT Heroes are a special group of players that left a lasting impression on their league with their extraordinary talents. These players share a number of similarities with FIFA 23 Icons, however, there are plenty of key differences that you need to be aware of before signing your own Hero.

FIFA 23 Heroes tend to feature lower stats compared to Icons, and they don't have the same level of freedom that Icon cards do when it comes to slotting into teams. You need to pair Heroes up with players from their respective league or nation in order to obtain max chemistry, whereas Icons can fit into any team without facing restrictions. Here's a list of 21 players coming to FIFA 23 as Heroes along with their ratings.

     The best Dragon games on PC 2022

Looking for a list of the best dragon games on PC? Since long before the days of Dungeons and Dragons PC games, and before Tolkein became the poster boy of fantasy, dragons have been the most fearsome and majestic creatures of myth. Usually they breath fire and hoard gold, other times they become companions and deign to be ridden, and more often than not they get mistaken for wyverns.

PC games, and the best RPGs in particular, are naturally swarming with dragons and dragon-like creatures both as friends and foes. We do love an epic showdown and nothing can deliver quite like a skyscraper-sized, fire-breathing lizard.

We've collected some of the best dragon games on PC where you can encounter, battle, or befriend a dragon. Plenty of the best selections are from multiplayer games or MMORPGs. Given that dragons can't often be taken down by a single adventurer (looking at you, Dragonborn) it makes sense that plenty of games that look to tackle dragons do so at the epic proportions of hundreds of players joining together to defeat them. Here are the top dragon games you'll want to try if you need a whole lot more in your life.

Excited to find out who made it onto the Street Fighter 6 roster? The Street Fighter 6 release date is pencilled in for 2023, so there's plenty of time for more characters to be revealed. Looking back to older games in the series, Street Fighter 4 launched with 25 characters, but the lacklustre Street Fighter 5 featured just 16 characters on day one. Capcom appears to be learning from its past mistakes, so we're hoping for a large roster this time around.

There are only seven characters revealed on the Street Fighter 6 roster so far. If the leaks and rumours turn out to be true, we can expect to see one or two character reveals each month until launch.

     How The Clutch can help you make your esports dream a reality

Since 2019, The Clutch has been offering funding and mentorship to up-and-coming esports entrepreneurs looking to make their idea the next best thing. The competition launched at ESI London, one of the many Esports Insider conferences, and encouraged start-ups in the games industry to pitch their ideas to a panel of experts. Since its inception, The Clutch has announced five winners, with a new one due to be announced at this years' ESI London in September.

The competition requires businesses to give a live pitch of their idea, entering in the hopes of winning one of the top three prizes that will award a significant boost to the finances of the companies. The winner will also be flown to Overwolf HQ in Tel Aviv for a week of intensive in-person mentoring in the creation of their product.

     Best Game of Thrones games for fans of the fantasy series

Looking for the best Game of Thrones games on PC? Sex, swords, and snow - whether you love or hate how the HBO spectacular Game of Thrones ended, this critically-acclaimed fantasy drama established itself as one of the biggest and most shocking TV shows of all time. The screen adaptation of George RR Martin's epic literary saga introduced us to a host of memorable characters and jaw-dropping battle scenes over its eight-season run.

With its violent and imaginative mythology, it's no surprise there have been so many Game of Thrones games - including games that are official spin-offs of the show, as well as those that were obviously influence by it. So, in the advent of House of the Dragon, if anyone is wishing to scheme like a Lannister, or wield a sword like a Stark, we've compiled a list of nine games that make us feel like a hero, villain, or morally-grey citizen of Westeros.

Oh, and we won't be mentioning the dreadful 2012 tie-in from Atlus USA - this game has been banished to the Wall for crimes against the crown.

     Red Dead Redemption 2 is a better history game than Assassin's Creed

Red Dead Redemption 2, on its surface, is not an historical game, at least, not in the same sense as Assassin's Creed. Ubisoft's long-running action RPG has taken an increasingly devoted interest in its various settings and time periods, an interest culminating in the addition of a dedicated Discovery Tour for both Assassin's Creed: Odyssey and Assassin's Creed: Valhalla, in which players can explore the respective Greek and Viking-based game worlds as a kind of virtual tourist, and uncover information about landmarks, notable figures, and ancient culture.

     FIFA 23 Icons list and leaks

Want to know which players make up the FIFA 23 Icons list? Exclusive to Ultimate Team, Icons are the best players to have ever graced the sport. All Icons have four cards released throughout the game, each one representing a different period of the player's career. Ultimate Team has strict team-building rules to stop players from assembling any team, but Icons don't have any restrictions at all, being able to slot easily into any team. No matter who you pair them up with, as long as they're in the correct position, Icons will always be on a minimum of five chemistry.

EA is adding new players to the FIFA 23 Icons list this year, and we expect the same players from last year to feature too. There have been some great candidates for Icon cards that have retired in the last year or so, and there are a number of players from the '80s, '90s, and '00s that haven't joined the football game yet. Here are the players we believe could be coming to the FIFA 23 Icons roster later this year.

You know what it's like at the beginning of a new year. You're all excited about the many tens and hundreds of new video games coming out over the next 12 months, and you go and make a big list of all the ones you're really looking forward to. We did exactly that back in January of this year, coming up with a list of our 43 most anticipated games of 2022. Lately, though, it seems we can't go a single day without word of yet another game being delayed, whether it's just by a couple of months, or that it's been taken off the calendar entirely.

It got me thinking. How many of those 43 games are even still on the table this year? And, more importantly, what does that mean for RPS as we head into the back-end of 2022? Well, I went back and counted, folks, and it's not great reading. At time of writing, just over half that number - 27 in total - are still slated for a 2022 release right now, although with many still listed as a very vague '2022' or 'Coming Soon' on their Steam pages, I wouldn't be surprised if that number fell further. Needless to say, I'm not sure 2022 will go down as one of the great gaming years... 2023, on the other hand? Wow, that's looking rad.

Galactic alliances aren't built in a day, a month or even a year, to warp a comfortingly familiar phrase from 90s telly. Interplanetary 4X Stellaris has been evolving for more than six years now, having first released on May 9th 2016. Unusually, I remember exactly when I bought the game, because it was in the days just before my partner and I welcomed our first child. Being a ginormous sci-fi nerd, I enthusiastically downloaded it thinking I'd have all the space-time in the universe to invest in building my own interstellar superpower.

I did dip my toes in back then, and have many, many times since, but rather naively didn't foresee the inevitable. The structure of my life altered dramatically with the arrival of our baby. It didn't stop there either, and still hasn't, taking on some unfamiliar but just about recognisable form every few months. I suspect the developers of Stellaris had a similar feeling following the game's release into the wider universe, like Kubrick's giant cosmic infant at the end of 2001: A Space Odyssey. I know I've felt like my furniture's been rearranged whenever I've started a new game of Stellaris with a different civilisation over the intervening years.

Disgaea RPG Madoka Magica

Boltrend's Disgaea RPG mobile game is getting some magical girls in its midst. The Disgaea RPG x Madoka Magica crossover event is open in-game. It runs until September 7, 2022. Participating players will get the chance to roll for new playable characters based on those from Puella Magi Madoka Magica.

Check out a teaser trailer for the event below.

The Disgaea RPG Madoka Magica event brings five new playable magical girls to the game's roster. All are from the first two entries in the Madoka Magica movie trilogy, which act as a feature film adaptation of the original TV anime series. The characters are Madoka Kaname, Sayaka Miki, Kyoko Sakura, Homura Akemi, and Mami Tomoe. The five girls visit the world of Disgaea while they hunt down an unusual Kyubey. Meanwhile, Kyubey itself appears in front of the Disgaea RPG character Pure Sicily, with an offer she won't want to refuse.

Puella Magi Madoka Magica first aired in 2011. It focuses on a group of middle-school girls contacted by the mysterious creature Kyubey. Kyubey offers them a chance to become magical girls to battle supernatural witches. The girls soon learn that being a magical girl is a much more fraught experience than advertised.

Besides adding magical girls to the gacha banner, the Disgaea RPG x Madoka Magica event brings some new gameplay. Players can team up to take on the Prinny x Kyubey raid boss, or challenge a daily Special Battle quest.

Disgaea RPG is available on mobile platforms and PC. The game also received characters from the Re:Zero series back in March 2022.

Romancing Saga Prefecture 2022 collaboration features trains

The same-name collaboration between Romancing SaGa and Japan's Saga prefecture will permeate into more aspects in 2022, and this time, it will feature the public trains. Square Enix has announced a collaboration with JR Kyushu to decorate trains running in the prefecture with Romancing SaGa designs.

The organizers have prepared a map of railways where people can expect to see the trains, starting from the Saga Station in the southeast. JR Kyushu will also sell a special ticket that lets the buyer ride any SaGa-branded trains for two consecutive days.

[gallery columns="1" ids="933996" link="file"]

All sixteen trains that pass through the above railways will receive unique Romancing SaGa liveries. Each livery will feature drawings by series illustrators Tomomi Kobayashi and Satoshi Kuramochi on one side and pixel art characters on the other.

[gallery columns="1" ids="933993" link="file"]

Square Enix has also published a teaser trailer for the new collaboration on the SaGa series' YouTube channel:

The collaboration between the game franchise and the Japanese prefecture with a similar name has run multiple times for a long time. The first-ever occurrence happened in 2014. The 2020 edition introduced new utility hole covers with unique designs based on the crossover. Another one that began in 2021 features Saga Furo (a wordplay between the abbreviation for SaGa Frontier and the Japanese word for baths) and is still available to visit until December 28, 2022.

The new Romancing SaGa train designs will appear in Japan's Saga prefecture on October 8, 2022.

Undertale Undyne Nendoroid

Good Smile Company has opened pre-orders for the Undertale Undyne Nendoroid. The Nendoroid comes with the character's harpoon and a fish-shaped mug, as well as several faceplates. Pre-orders will close on September 28, 2022, and the Nendoroid will cost $39.99. It will ship sometime in May 2023.

Undyne is one of several main characters that appear in the 2D RPG Undertale. She is an anthropomorphic fish and the leader of the Royal Guard. She typically appears wearing a suit of plate armor and an eye patch. She also wields a harpoon.

Her Nendoroid recreates much of those same features. While it does not seem to include her plate armor helmet, she does come with several optional bonus items. It also appears that you can change the angle of the character's ponytail. Additionally, pre-orders will include a special backdrop.

In addition to her two "standard" and "laughing" faceplates, Undyne can also hold her harpoon. Furthermore, it also comes with a holdable fish-shaped mug. The "memorable water-drinking scene" that Good Smile Company mentions is likely a reference to when the player can choose to give her a cup of water in the Hotlands.

Previously, Good Smile Company also released two Nendoroid figures of Sans and Papyrus. Undyne is the third and last currently-confirmed character from Undertale to get a Nendoroid. It's unclear if Good Smile Company will produce more figures of other characters from the series.

The Undertale Undyne Nendoroid is available for pre-order on the Good Smile Company website. The Nendoroid will cost $39.99, and ship sometime in May 2023. Pre-orders will close on September 28, 2022.

Other games that have announced One Piece Film: Red events include Granblue Fantasy, Knives Out, and Monster Strike. [Thanks, 4Gamer!]

While Gungho Entertainment announced this event in early August 2022, details were sparse. Aside from Uta, you can get units of the Straw Hat Pirates crew. Pictures of the characters' splash art before and after evolution are available on Gungho Entertainment's website. There are almost twenty more characters who will appear for this crossover.

     Kena Bridge of Spirits Steam gameplay landscapeNext month marks the one-year anniversary of the critically acclaimed Kena: Bridge of Spirits, and developer Ember Lab plans to celebrate with a Steam release on September 27.

Additionally, the Steam version will come alongside a special anniversary update that will add a whole host of new features to Kena. According to the Steam page, one of the key new features in the anniversary update comes in the form of a new game plus mode, which contains additional challenges, combat encounters, and enemies for players to tackle, with their skills and upgrades carrying over.

     Microsoft Flight Simulator Pc Beechcraft V35 P9 (copy)Asobo and Carenado have revealed and released he third entry in the Famous Flyer series for Microsoft Flight Simulator: the beloved Beechcraft Bonanza V35. This directly compliments the first and second Famous Fliers, the Beechcraft Model 17 and 18, respectively. Hailing all the way from the mid-1960s, the V35 edition of the Bonanza sports an iconic "V-tail" design that boosts its aerodynamics and provides some killer looks.   Beauty of the Bonanza The Bonanza family is one of the longest-produced line of general aviation aircraft in the world. It got its start all the way back in the '40s following the end of WWII and continues to run strong even today. The V-tail of the V35 helps it stand out among its sister ships while also giving it a bit of a competitive edge. It features an all-aluminum fuselage, retractable landing gear (which wasn't standard at the time of its production), and relatively simple flying mechanics. All of this is what's made it...

     Microsoft Flight Simulator Pc Pmdg Dc 6 In Canada 2 (copy)After already moving Sim Update 10 for Microsoft Flight Simulator from July to August, Asobo has confirmed the update has been pushed again September. The delay was announced by studio exec Jorg Neuman, who called it a "difficult decision." Much like real-world air travel, 2022 has been a bit of a troublesome year for Microsoft Flight Simulator. While various updates and add-on releases have made decent progress to the sim, Asobo has had to tighten its belt due to the all too common complications that occur after the release of a major update.   Flight delays, not cancellations The company announced a few months ago that it would no longer retain its original goal of releasing a new major update every month. Instead, it plans to focus on getting them out only after they're fully ready. While this strategy isn't a bad thing, it does lead to delays, which is what we're now seeing again  with Sim Update 10. The update was originally scheduled for July...

     High On Life 1Squanch Games' High on Life (you know, the weird one with the talking gun) has been delayed until December. It was originally scheduled for October, but, as we have since learned, that's when Modern Warfare II comes out. These things happen. The roughly six-week delay will allow the team to clear out some bugs and polish the game's sentient weapons. It'll now arrive on December 13. The news was announced yesterday on the game's official Twitter account. "We have good news and bad news," the message read. "Feel free to choose the option you'd prefer to read first; we won't meddle with your free will." Naturally, the good news was that the game is still heading our way this year. We sadly can't say the same for everything else that recently got pushed to 2023. It's been that kind of summer, folks.   High On Life delayed, but not that long For those who need a refresher, High On Life is coming to us from th...

     The Steam LogoIf you've been playing games on PC, you'll be familiar with the Steam storefront and its abundance of user-focused content. Mods and community creations can be a real highlight for Steam players, but it's the game reviews that can often be the most informative and hilarious. Some reviews will give you a true sense of what state the game is in before you decide to buy it, and many of them present a humorous twist on that idea. Steam reviews can be straight to the point, artistic, comedic, and sometimes more fun to peruse than the games they're written for. With that in mind, here are some highlights of the best Steam reviews we've come across.   The works of art Art is probably not what you expected to hear when thinking of a video game review. However, some of the best Steam reviews let users show off their artistic skills in a way that just needs to be appreciated. V Rising You can't escape Morbin time, even on Steam. The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Our friendly da...
