Want to know what this week's Destiny 2 Nightfall weapon is? Each week you've got a chance at a different weapon for completing Nightfall Strikes, and ever since Season of the Lost, fan-favourite legacy weapons from the original Destiny have been added to the rotation. New seasons often introduce new weapons into the rotation, so it's more important than ever to know in advance the Nightfall weapon schedule.
In case you don't know what the Destiny 2 Nightfall weapon means, Nightfall: The Ordeal is a playlist available in the Vanguard menu, alongside the basic Strike playlist. Each week, a different Strike is chosen as the Nightfall, and offered in five escalating difficulties, with harder enemies, challenging modifiers, and enemy power levels cranking up.
The coveted Nightfall weapons have a chance to drop from any Nightfall Strike difficulty, but it's far more likely at higher levels. Your best bet for farming each week's Nightfall weapon is to set the Strike to Master difficulty, according to YouTuber Aztecross. You should also note that there's no automatic matchmaking above Hero difficulty, however, so you'll need to get a squad together.Destiny 2 classes, Destiny 2 exotics, Destiny 2 builds

Want to know how to take pictures of three Tri-Lakshana Creatures in Genshin Impact? These odd little creatures can be found in Sumeru, some appear as large fungi and are bouncy or poisonous, while others are disguised as a rock covered in vines.
To complete the challenge you need to take pictures of the creatures in their three different states: Activated, Normal, and Scorched. To change the state of the creature and take the picture, different elements need to be applied. When in their Activated state, they may reveal the locations of hidden objects, and can be used to reach tough places by either bouncing on top of the mushroom or interacting with the vines to release a boulder that lifts into the air.Genshin Impact codes, Genshin Impact character tier list, Genshin Impact leveling guide

Is Harry Potter in Hogwarts Legacy is a question on all our minds. After all, The Boy Who Lived is the reason we Muggles even know about the magical School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Hogwarts itself was introduced to us through his own eyes all the way back in 1997 (feel old, yet?). And let's not forget those incredible Harry Potter RPG games from the early noughties, and their hilarious, clunky graphics which will never be forgotten. All of this of course leads us to wonder whether our favourite bespectacled wizard will join us at Hogwarts this time around.
You may also be wondering if his now famous friends Ron and Hermione will appear as playable characters or NPCs in the long-awaited action RPG, or whether we can expect to meet an entirely new ensemble of wand-wielding witches and wizards.Hogwarts Legacy release date, Upcoming PC Games, Best PC RPGs

If you want to know which service gives you the broadest selection of VPN servers, you've come to the right place. This will understandably be a top consideration when determining which provider you want to use, because a vast server array comes with a lot of benefits.
If you go for an option that has a lot of VPN servers, you reduce the risk of congestion, which can result in slower speeds due to so many users using the same server. Additionally, you increase the chances of finding a server that's compatible with any website or online service you might want to use, and you can be even more anonymous online, by switching servers every time you log on.
We've picked out six VPN providers that have the broadest selection of servers, and we've listed both the total number of servers for each one, and the total number of countries in which these servers are located. For added convenience, we've provided mini overviews that will let you know which is the fastest VPN, the best gaming VPN, or whatever else it is that makes each one special.Best SSD for gaming, How to build a gaming PC, Best gaming CPU

Which are the best PC games you on mobile? Well, if you had asked that question a decade ago, there wouldn't have been many for us to recommend. Today, however, mobile phones are able to provide gaming libraries which stand proud alongside their PC and console siblings, and many of the best PC games have made their way onto our portable phones over the years.
Of course, your opinion of what constitutes the best PC games on mobile will be skewed by your individual tastes as a gamer and, with this in mind, we've tried to choose eight games that reflect a number of different genres and developers. We hope that at least one of the entries on this list will bring a smile to your face.
There's also one game that is conspicuous by its absence: Minecraft. Don't get us wrong, we love mining, avoiding Creepers, building Nether portals, and making cool Minecraft builds, but everyone and their wolf knows that Minecraft is on practically every platform, so we thought we'd shine the spotlight onto some other iconic games that deserve your attention.Best battle royale games, Best PUBG weapons and guns, Best PC games you can play on mobile

If the RA 225 is anything like these SMGs, it has the potential to top our best SMGs in Warzone list and become a staple of every loadout for weeks to come.
The Call of Duty blog describes the RA 225 as having a "high fire rate and a very mobile compact frame", the perfect combination for a deadly SMG.

There's a basic combat mechanic in Evil West that, if you're anything like me, will completely sell you on this action shooter. Basically, you can time a precise rifle shot like a quick-fire Batarang toss in Batman: Arkham Asylum, and if you hit the right spot then an enemy's arms will simply explode right out of their sockets, spraying forth rivers of crimson like something out of Kill Bill. Both arms completely squelch out of existence - no flesh, no bones, just two long sacks of gore ready to burst given the slightest bit of contact - and with blood pressure like that you've got to assume these goons consume nothing but salt, cholesterol, and smoke.
It's a simple mechanic that feels unbelievably satisfying to pull off, but it's just one tool of many, and they all feel just as good. There's a simple three-punch combo that leaves weak enemies open to a brutal finisher à la Doom, or a charged uppercut that suspends a foe mid-air where you can either join them for more punching, stay on the ground and fan your revolver at them, or charge a second punch and send them cannonballing into some environmental object like a stack of dynamite.Best Western games on PC, Best action-adventure games on PC, Best vampire games on PC

The thrill of a card game is in the hand you get dealt. Luck can either be on your side, or you can earn it back by using your wits, carving out a victory you never thought possible. Other times, it all goes to pot and you get absolutely walloped, but hot damn if you didn't go down fighting. ORX has these moments in spades. Part deckbuilder, part roguelike and part tower defence, this is a real-time strategy game played by the seat of your pants, where a rolling deck of cards determines not only what kind of defences you can build, but also what buffs, spells and additional forces you can deploy to help defend your keep from the oncoming hordes. It's a gripping mix that's already claimed over a dozen hours of my time in recent weeks, and it's a number I can only see going up and up and up as it continues to develop in early access.

While mooching around Samsung's Gamescom booth, waiting for their 990 Pro SSD reveal, I took the opportunity to play with an altogether more unusual addition to their hardware catalogue. The Samsung Odyssey Ark, for the unfamiliar, is a kind of all-in-one entertainment screen: a mammoth 55in Mini LED panel that can act as a desktop gaming monitor or living room TV, complete with honking great speakers and built-in support for all the big game streaming services so you can play on it without a PC or console. Unlike other monitors of this magnitude, it can also rotate into portrait mode, leaving the top curve towering over you like an unsympathetic Victorian headmaster.
I actually enjoy a touch of design madness creeping into the occasional piece of PC gear, regardless of whether it can hang with the best gaming monitors that sensible people might buy. What I experienced with the Odyssey Ark, however, was a device that too often veered onto the wrong side of senseless – when it was even working properly.

I'm going to level with you: I'm not a GSG player. I play strategy, sure, but grand strategy has always been a bit beyond me. I'm a fundamentally un-grand person; I spend most days dressed like a 14-year-old fan of Tony Hawk, I do not like olives or scallops, and I'm unable to predict the consequences of actions if they exist outside of, say, a 12 month timeframe. A game like Victoria 3, where the whole point is making decisions that have country-wide effects and outcomes years in the future, is essentially operating in a different language to any I understand.
I'm trying to learn new languages, though, so it's not an unwelcome challenge. The problem is that previewing Victoria 3 is quite an advanced level to dive in, the Paradox GSG equivalent of being a live translator for a UN summit when you're only just about able to read the French version of The Famous Five. In a presentation before I and others were let loose on the better part of a week with the game, it was claimed that Victoria 3 is the best yet for onboarding newcomers, with a deep and detailed tutorial system. And to that I say: kinda. Luckily, the AI in Victoria 3 is so advanced it's better at playing the game than I am.

Of all the games I saw at this year's Gamescom, sci-fi team-based shooter Hyenas easily claims the title of "Most Confusing Overall Experience". Bouncing between appointments in this sea of booths and lanyards was jarring, but I'd eventually settle in after a few minutes of reconfiguring my brain to whatever presentation or control scheme was placed in front of me. Hyenas never gave me a chance.
I sat in a 20-minute presentation of the game and tried my level best to understand SEGA's stab at a live-service FPS. Instead, I exited the booth with whiplash... and a sense of curiosity. Somewhere inside the game's insufferable tone is a kernel of cleverness, I just need to get my mitts on it to confirm my suspicions. Otherwise, it's very difficult to really understand whether it can survive in such a saturated space.

Xbox Game Pass' value for folks into indie games is increasing by seven titles. Humble Games, the publishing arm of Humble Bundle, will add seven titles to the Xbox Game Pass service on the day of their release. The first Humble Game Pass game, Midnight Fight Express, is already available as of this writing.
Check out a trailer for the Humble Game Pass games below. It includes looks at Midnight Fight Express, Prodeus, Ghost Song, Moonscars, Infinite Guitars, Signalis, and Coral Island.
Here's a description and trailer for each Humble Game Pass game.
Developed by Jacob Dzwinel, Midnight Fight Express is an isometric brawler that involves motion-captured combat animations and destructible environments. It's also available on PC via the Humble Store and Steam, and on PS4.
From Bounding Box Software comes Prodeus, a retro "boomer shooter", an FPS that evokes the design of classic games like Doom and Quake. It's available on PC via Steam Early Access and Microsoft Store Game Preview now and will hit Xbox Game Pass later in 2022.
Ghost Song is a 2D Metroidvania-style game with a mysterious atmosphere from Old Moon. Players control a "long-dormant deadsuit", ready for combat but lacking memory and purpose. They'll explore unknown areas, battle powerful foes, and unearth secrets. It arrives as a Humble Game Pass game on November 3, 2022, and is also headed to PS4 and Steam.
Moonscars from Black Mermaid is described as a "Souls-like 2D slasher-platformer" with a high skill ceiling. Players control the warrior Grey Irma and hack their way through a dark fantasy world "marred by desperation and despair". It arrives on September 27, 2022, on Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation platforms, PC via Steam, and Nintendo Switch.
Signalis launches on October 27, 2022, as a survival-horror experience. Its sci-fi aesthetic is informed by retro-style tech and Cold War-era Eurasian motifs. Players investigate a dark secret as Elster, a "technician Replika" searching for her lost dreams. Developer Rose-engine will put the game out on PC via Steam as well.
Infinite Guitars is part of the burgeoning subgenre of rhythm RPGs. Players dodge through rhythm-based attack patterns and shred their enemies with killer guitar solos. This all happens against the backdrop of a world devastated by a mech war. Developer Nikko Nikko debuted the game in June as part of the Future of Play showcase. It's headed to Steam as well as the Humble Game Pass slate later in 2022.
Coral Island is headed both to Xbox Game Pass and PC Game Pass (and Steam) as a new farming and life sim from Stairway Games.

Its Xbox and PC Game Pass debut is slated for sometime in 2022.
Humble Games' seven titles will arrive on Xbox Game Pass throughout 2022.

Torch Torch will produce the Powder Keg Hunter Badge from Bloodborne and sell it worldwide. Pre-orders for the real-life pendant are now available online, and people residing outside Japan can place an order via Buyee. The item will cost 24,200 yen ($180.78) and ship between January and February 2023.
The pendant's head will have a full length of 6 cm (~2.36 inches), while the brass chain will be 45 cm (~17.7 inches) long. Torch Torch will use borosilicate glass, silver 925, and a special alloy made from a combination of silver, copper, and brass to produce the badge.
One of the preview images that Torch Torch published shows how the real-life product will compare to the in-game item. In the original Bloodborne, players can obtain Powder Keg Hunter Badge from Djura to enable purchases of several items, such as the Stake Driver and Rifle Spear weapons.

The Powder Keg Hunter Badge will be the eighth Bloodborne badge that Torch Torch has produced in real life. The series began with the Sword Hunter Badge, which came out in March 2020. Since then, Torch Torch has released the Crow Hunter, Wheel Hunter, Saw Hunter, Firing Hammer, and Cainhurst badges. The preceding Cosmic Eye Watcher Badge appeared in March 2022.
Bloodborne is a PlayStation 4 game that From Software developed and Sony Interactive Entertainment released in 2015. One of the game's producers, Masaaki Yamagiwa, is currently working at Koei Tecmo's Team Ninja to help develop Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty. Meanwhile, From Software's newest title, Elden Ring, won multiple awards at the CEDEC Awards 2022.

Mamoru "zuga" Kano's Umino Okami, which he made himself using Unreal Engine 5, has appeared at Yamagata Biennale 2022 as a playable display. The Yamagata Biennale is an art festival held every two years by the Tohoku University of Art and Design.
The game puts the player in the paws of a wolf, who crosses a lake in search of companions. While the story seems simple, the trailer shows a lot of surreal sights. For example, there are manatees flying through the air, as well as strange spirit-like beings you can encounter.
The game uses a lot of Yamagata's history in the story, and the map uses the real Yamagata Prefecture's geography. Umino Okami specifically focuses on the Mogaumi Legend, which states that there used to be a giant lake in Yamagata. Like how Mogaumi Lake "might have existed," the usage of wolves in the game is because people say wolves "might have existed" in Yamagata. This idea appears to be the theme of the game, which is why there are fantastical elements in the story.
Umino Okami will be available at Yamagata Biennale 2022 from 9:00 AM to 4:30 PM. Visitors can play it on weekends throughout September 2022. Kano is a professor at the Tohoku University of Art and Design. His specialty is in visual design, 3DCG, and software development. It is unclear when, or if, Umino Okami will be available to download for the wider public.
Umino Okami will appear on PC at Yamagata Biennale 2022 from September 3 to 25, 2022.

The Square Enix Store has added two new figures of Tifa in her cheongsam dress from FFVII Remake. One figure is part of the poseable Play Arts Kai figure line, while the second is a seated static figure that is part of the Static Arts line. As of writing, both figures are available for pre-order via the Japanese Square Enix Store. Each figure will cost ¥19,580 (about $141) and will release on March 25, 2023.
The Static Arts Tifa figure features the character sitting on a red cushioned chair. The figure has Tifa resting her chin on her hand, her dress drooped over her legs as she looks slightly upwards. It boasts high attention to detail and fabric textures, recreating her appearance from FFVII Remake as closely as possible.
[gallery ids="934508,934507,934509" link="file"]
On the other hand, the Play Arts Kai figure allows owners to pose the figure however they wish. Furthermore, it also comes with an interchangeable face part and several hand parts. The dress below the hips is also a separate part from the torso, allowing for better mobility and posing.
[gallery columns="4" ids="934515,934504,934514,934512,934511,934510,934506,934505" link="file"]
The cheongsam-inspired dress is one of the three possible dresses that Tifa can wear in Final Fantasy VII Remake, based on the Cloud's choices. This one is unlocked by Cloud saying a "sporty" look suits Tifa best in Chapter 3. Her other iconic purple dress (the "Mature" option) is also available as Static and Play Arts Kai figures. However, she has not yet appeared in her third, "Exotic" kimono-style dress.
Both Tifa cheongsam dress figures are available for pre-order via the Japanese Square Enix Store. Each figure will cost ¥19,580 (about $141) and will release on March 25, 2023.

Games that feature beer tend to be more about drinking or drinking games than the beer itself. Now it's time to embrace tradition and get the original "homebrew" into your system. Brewmaster is a new indie game focused on the art and science of making beer. Developer Auroch Digital and publisher Fireshine Games debuted Brewmaster: Beer Brewing Simulator at the Awesome Indies Showcase held during last week's Gamescom 2022 festivities. The game itself releases on consoles and PC via Steam on September 29, 2022.
Check out the trailer below, via IGN.
Brewmaster puts players in the role of a startup homebrew craft beer brewer. Fireshine focuses on realistic mechanics and "authentic, chemistry-driven brewing techniques". It's also aimed at both beginners and existing beer afficionados, with educational content about various beer types, and systems like bottling, labeling, and naming custom brews. The trailer shows the simulator working in first-person view. Players prepare grains, hops (the flowers of the hop plant, used to add flavor to the brew), yeast, and more to make their digital simulacrum of the world's third most-popular drink (after water and tea).
Though the game's mechanics focus on realism, some tools are present to make the experience convenient. Things like time-skipping to advance fermentation are present. Players will also receive objectives to guide their beer-making experience. They'll even be able to decorate their brewery to their preference.
Check out some screenshots of an in-development build of Brewmaster in the gallery.

Type-Moon Games has released a new trailer for the upcoming Mahoutsukai no Yoru: Witch on the Holy Night game, focusing on Alice Kuonji. The trailer, at just over a minute long, plays Alice's voice over images and text from the game. There is also a descriptor for Alice, though it is in Japanese.
Alice is a natural-born witch and the daughter of Meinster. As a fan of Lewis Carroll's stories, Alice's magic uses a lot of fantasy and fairy tale elements. More specifically, she uses familiars called Ploys. Alice is proud and solitary, and she does not like others, with the exception of Aoko. She is the so-called witch of the mansion, and she lives with Aoko Aozaki. Type-Moon also released a character trailer for Aoko earlier in August.
You can watch the Alice Kuonji trailer for Mahoutsukai no Yoru: Witch on the Holy Night here:
Kana Hanazawa will voice Alice Kuonji. She will likely voice Alice in the upcoming movie as well. Previous roles from Hanazawa include Sophie from Tales of Graces, Chiaki Nanami in Danganronpa, and Ichika Nakano in The Quintessential Quintuplets. Hanazawa has also voiced in other Type-Moon properties. She was Ayaka Sajo in Carnival Phantasm.
Mahoutsukai no Yoru; Witch on the Holy Night will come out on December 8, 2022 in Japan for the PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch. The English localization will come out in Winter 2022.

The Shovel Knight series has been quiet for some time now. Sure, we had Shovel Knight Pocket Dungeon last year, but it wasn't quite what fans wanted. And it's been a while since the next main game in the series was announced, with several delays affecting its development.

Dead by Daylight is no stranger to crossovers with other horror properties, both within video games and outside of them. Resident Evil is one of the most popular survival horror game franchises, and earlier this year a teaser posted on the Dead by Daylight Twitter account revealed that the two games would soon have another crossover project.

As per usual with unannounced Assassin's Creed titles, we've got some information about the next game. Called Assassin's Creed Mirage, it's apparently set to release in spring 2023. These details come courtesy of YouTuber j0nathan, who made a video covering the upcoming title. Jason Schreier also corroborated this on Twitter, saying that parts of this leak are indeed true. But as always, try to keep expectations in check until Ubisoft officially announces the game. According to the leak, players will control Basim from Assassin's Creed Valhalla in his youth between 860 and 870. And if you've been sticking close to news about the next game in the series, some of this information has been around since February. Beyond this, Mirage looks to be a turning point for the franchise as Ubisoft strips back many of the RPG mechanics present in recent titles. One of the intriguing parts of the leak is Ubisoft's intention to "return to basics.&...
