Investment analyst Clay Griffin of MoffettNathanson, a boutique research firm, has expressed scepticism about Roblox's metaverse vision in a new report. Griffin suggests Roblox's vision for the future of the sandbox game platform and metaverse may be overblown, and its efforts to focus on the big picture are simply obscuring the current setbacks the company faces.

     No Man's Sky 4.0 update: why Sean Murray feels your passion

In the six years since No Man's Sky first launched, the ambitious space game's name has morphed from a synonym for hubris to the go-to example of redemption through hard work and dedication. In 2022, 'pulling a No Man's Sky' means saving a troubled game after a botched launch. No Man's Sky update 4.0 rolls out on October 7, and creator Sean Murray tells us that while there's not much in the way of spectacle in this patch, it's full of quality-of-life improvements that continue to make the spacefaring RPG more fun and easier to play - whether you're a newcomer or an experienced space pioneer.

     FIFA 23 Dynamic Duos SBC: Mbemba and Suarez solutions

A FIFA 23 Dynamic Duos SBC has been released, giving you the option of completing two Squad Building Challenges in order to unlock Marseille players Chancel Mbemba and Luis Javier Suarez. It's the first time this year that EA has released an SBC like this, and given the recent changes to how FIFA 23 chemistry works, these two are nearly guaranteed to have full chemistry in any team.

Last year, a release of a CB and ST, even if from the same team, wouldn't have had any direct links on the pitch. This time around, however, the pair of players offer a lot of base chemistry for each other, meaning that if you have just one other Ligue 1 player in your first XI, you'll be in a really good spot if you wanted to create a hybrid team in this football game. Here is the cheapest and easiest way to craft both Mbemba and Suarez for your Ultimate Team.

     Overwatch 2 characters: every new hero so far

Want to know about the latest Overwatch 2 characters? The Overwatch 2 release date is upon us, and the sequel to Blizzard's hero-based FPS game features a mixture of returning characters and new faces. As content will be shared across Overwatch 1 and 2, all of the original Overwatch characters are on the roster. They're joined by new heroes at launch, with more coming as part of the new Overwatch 2 seasons.

At launch, there are three new characters joining the ranks of Overwatch 2 characters. The new model for Overwatch 2 as a free-to-play game is expected to feature nine week-long seasons, and Blizzard says they plan to introduce a new hero to the roster with each alternate season. Therefore we can expect to see a new hero roughly every eighteen weeks, beginning with the game's second season.

Unlike the first game, where all heroes were available to all players, you now have to unlock future Overwatch 2 heroes from the game's seasonal battle pass. The characters are on the free track, starting with support character Kiriko who appears at rank 55 of the season one pass. Now that's out the way, here's everything we know about the new Overwatch 2 characters.

OTW is the first of the football game's unique events and could set you up for a while if you manage to get your hands on one of the special cards.

These cards can be mainstays in your team depending on their real life performances as they can receive upgrades if the player features in the Team of the Week, or if they earn a Man of the Match card.

     The best Minecraft servers 2022

What are the best Minecraft servers? Multiplayer servers make the world go round. Or, at least, the worlds of Minecraft. It is no secret that the PC community boasts the most ambitious players in the world, and there is no better evidence of this in action than our best Minecraft server list. The architectural artist's paradise, Minecraft has been a great creative outlet for players who can build to their heart's content, all without knowing a single line of code.

Their works and ideas are immortalised in the best Minecraft servers. Every server is its own self-contained multiplayer world, with its own rules, gameplay style, and communities. We've had a hunt around to find the very best, featuring anything from breathtaking constructions and vistas to worlds with whole new rules and game modes.

One thing to keep in mind is that different servers can sometimes use older versions of Minecraft. Plenty of servers have updated to the current 1.19 patch, but many other popular servers are sticking to older versions of the game for now. Make sure you check each server before jumping in to ensure you know what to expect and how to get it all running as intended.

A couple of weeks back you may remember that I played the early access build of Gloomwood, a very good Thief-like that currently snaps shut just as you reach the best bit. The Richard Gere holding a necklace of video games. One thing that I do not dwell on in my feature, though, is that I was hamstrung not just by the early access limitations of the game. For almost all of the first playthrough I did, I thought that you could neither heal nor store items in Gloomwood. I was like "Wow, this is a really hardcore stealth sim."

You can, of course, do both of those things in Gloomwood. It's just, I am an idiot.

Monster Hunter Felynes in Hyogo Police safety campaign

The Felynes from Capcom's Monster Hunter series will appear in a new set of merchandise promoting public safety in one of Japan's prefectures. Capcom has published a new press release announcing a collaboration campaign with the Hyogo Prefectural Police to promote crime prevention and public safety with characters from the former's game franchise.

The collaboration items will include coloring sheets, reflective keyholders, and towels. While all of them primarily feature Felynes, the pig-like Poogies will also appear on some of the merchandise. The items will include messages about protecting children from crimes. Capcom and the Hyogo Police will distribute the items at an event in Marine Pia Kobe on October 8, 2022.

[gallery ids="936696,936695,936697" link="file"]

Felyne is a cat-like creature in the Monster Hunter universe. In Japan, it is better known as Airou. When it accompanies a hunter in the game series, it becomes known as a Palico. Felynes have appeared since the inaugural Monster Hunter entry on the PS2 in 2004, but the companion Palicoes started showing up in the 2008 PSP entry, Monster Hunter Freedom Unite. The series' most recent iteration as of this writing, Monster Hunter Rise, had a notable addition of the dog-like Canyne that can also become an alternative companion as a Palamute.

The Felynes also had their own spin-off series, titled MonHun Nikki: Poka Poka Airou Mura (Monster Hunter Diary: Warm Felyne Village). The original game appeared on PlayStation Portable in August 2010, and its enhanced G edition came out roughly one year after. A DX port for Nintendo Switch also appeared in September 2015. From Software developed all of the series entries, and Capcom released them exclusively in Japan.

The Hyogo Police's inclusion of Monster Hunter Felynes adds a new entry to Capcom's list of collaborations with Japan's official institutions. One of the most notable instances appeared in late 2021 when the Osaka Prefectural Police used The Great Ace Attorney characters in campaign posters to deter Japanese juveniles from abusing marijuana.

Guilty Gear Strive PC PlayStation cross-play open beta test

Arc System Works will hold a Guilty Gear Strive cross-play open beta test for PC, PlayStation 5, and PlayStation 4. The company will launch a beta client that will let PlayStation and PC users fight against each other in the fighting game. The test will begin on October 13, 2022, at 21:00 (9 PM) ET and end on October 17, 2022, at 3:00 AM ET.

The cross-play beta client will appear as a separate entity from the existing full game. People interested in testing the PlayStation-PC connectivity will have to download the standalone client on PlayStation Store and/or Steam.

The client will contain 21 playable characters consisting of all 15 launch characters, 5 DLC characters from the first Season Pass, and the latest addition, Bridget. That means all testers will be able to try out the DLC characters even if they have not purchased them in the full game.

Guilty Gear Strive PC PlayStation cross-play open beta characters

Cross-play for Guilty Gear Strive was initially limited to the PS5 and PS4 as part of the same console family. After the open beta test concludes, Arc System Works will eventually add cross-platform multiplayer between the PlayStation and PC versions to the full game with a future update patch.

Arc System Works revealed at Tokyo Game Show 2022 that it will bring Guilty Gear Strive to Xbox Series X and Xbox One in Spring 2023. However, it has yet to announce whether the Xbox versions will also support cross-play or not. While the fighting game also has a thriving arcade community in Japan, the company has not announced cross-play between the Japanese arcade visitors and the global console and PC users either.

Guilty Gear Strive is available on PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, PC, and arcades. Arc System Works will also bring the game to Xbox Series X and Xbox One in Spring 2023. The PlayStation-PC cross-play open beta test will take place on October 13-17, 2022.

Horizon Zero Dawn Remaster

Sony isn't quite done with giving some of its recent releases a spruce-up for the PlayStation 5 era. Rumors reported in MP1st and corroborated by VGC and Gematsu suggest that Guerrilla Games is working on a remaster or remake of 2017's Horizon: Zero Dawn. Originally a PS4 exclusive, the game launched on PC in August 2020.

Targeted for the PS5, the Horizon: Zero Dawn remaster (or remake) would upgrade the graphics yet further, to match Horizon: Forbidden West, which released in February 2022 for PS4 and PS5. Additionally, accessibility options and other improvements put in place for the sequel, as well as graphical and performance settings, would be part of the project.

A second rumor in MP1st's report also claims that Guerrilla Games is working on a multiplayer game based on Horizon, with customization or gameplay based on the various tribes of Horizon's world. Gematsu, meanwhile, verified that the Horizon: Zero Dawn remaster and multiplayer projects are on a leaked list purporting to reveal various Sony Interactive Entertainment projects.

If this sounds familiar, it lines up with what Sony and Naughty Dog did for The Last of Us, wherein it remade 2013's The Last of Us as The Last of Us Part 1, bringing its graphics, features, and accessibility options up to par with (and beyond) its sequel, The Last of Us Part 2. Sony also remastered Marvel's Spider-Man, rereleasing it as a PS5-native game just ahead of Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales in November 2020.

Horizon: Zero Dawn is available on the PS4 and PC. Horizon: Forbidden West is available on PS4 and PS5.

Disco Elysium

Creators who played important roles in the creation of hit RPG Disco Elysium may have left developer Studio ZA/UM. [Thanks, Nibel!]

Martin Luiga, an editor on Disco Elysium and founding member of the studio, posted on Medium that the "ZA/UM Cultural Association " was "dissolved," and that Disco Elysium writer/designer Robert Kurvitz, lead art and design developer Aleksandr Rostov, and writer Helen Hindpere all left the company "involuntarily" at the end of 2021. Rostov confirmed their departure via Twitter.

The ZA/UM Cultural Association is (or was) an artists' collective that went on to form Studio ZA/UM and develop Disco Elysium as a game. The Cultural Association and Studio ZA/UM had pretty much the same personnel until its apparent dissolution.

Here's the full quote from Luiga explaining why the ZA/UM Cultural Association was dissolved.

The reason for dissolving the cultural organization is that it no longer represents the ethos it was founded on. People and ideas are meant to be eternal; organizations may well be temporary.

He also said that he found the organization successful, despite challenging circumstances and lacking a formal structure.

I find that the organization was successful overall and most of the mistakes that were made were contingent, determined by the sociocultural conditions we were thrown into. I still encourage people to organize, and I would say that one of the qualities that the ZA/UM cultural organization sorely lacked was pretty much any formal structure.

Luiga then thanked supporters, remarking that "for a while, it was beautiful."

In a comment on the Medium post and replies via Twitter, Luiga appeared to claim that Studio ZA/UM's financial backers had something to do with the departures. He also conceded that those same backers were likely critical to getting the game made in the first place. Regarding the sequel to Disco Elysium, which is in the early stages of development, Luiga remarked that things are actually "sweet enough", though he said it might take a "sh*t ton" of time.

[gallery columns="2" ids="936644,936645" link="file"]

Studio ZA/UM issued a response to Eurogamer when asked about the reports. Through a spokesperson, the studio said that the development of Disco Elysium "was and still is a collective effort, with every team member's contribution essential and valued as part of a greater whole."

They also said:

At this time we have no further comment to make other than [that] the ZA/UM creative team's focus remains on the development of our next project, and we are excited to share more news on this with you all soon.

According to Studio ZA/UM's website, around 60 people are currently employed there.

Disco Elysium is readily available on PC, Nintendo Switch, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and Mac. The Final Cut edition was a runner-up in Siliconera's Game of the Year 2021 awards for Best Re-Release or Remaster. A sequel is in development, as is a TV series adaptation.

Fall 2022 anime

Siliconera Speaks Up, our regular staff and community commentary feature, is back! And right on time for the beginning of the Fall 2022 anime season! This week we're picking our favorite (and most anticipated) anime debuts of the quarter. Share yours in the comments, and on Twitter!

The Fall 2022 anime season is fully stacked! From the next episodes of Spy x Family, My Hero Academia, Mob Psycho 100, and Legend of the Galactic Heroes: Die Neue These to the debuts of Chainsaw Man, Gundam: The Witch from Mercury, and the rebooted adaptation of Urusei Yatsura, there's no shortage of big names to count on.

As a certified Old Person who doesn't have nearly as much time to watch shows week-to-week as I used to, I'm still looking forward to nearly everything I've cited so far, plus a few more niche titles like The Eminence in Shadow and Reincarnated as a Sword.

Above and beyond those for me, though, is the return of Bleach. I watched that show almost religiously through college and past it, and even began my online writing career (such as it is) writing recaps of the show and its manga for Japanator! You could say a good portion of my adult life was linked to some level of engagement with Bleach, so it was quite exciting to learn its final story arc would get adapted. I'm not going to pretend that the story ended particularly well, but it still deserved to be seen through, and Bleach fans are now getting their wish!

Bleach: Thousand-Year Blood War opens on October 10, 2022. - Josh


There is a certain stigma attached to idol anime. They're too "fanservice-y" or the story is absolutely bonkers to keep viewers' interest. But IDOLiSH7, with its strong character writing and surprisingly consistent animation, bucks all conventions as one of the best idol franchises I have ever seen. It focuses more on the pitfalls and struggles that idols face behind the scenes, and presents a fairly grounded view on the industry. There are enough heartwarming and funny moments peppered in to keep the show from becoming too melodramatic to stay invested. And the characters are all so charming that you just want to see them succeed and be happy.

Unfortunately, the world never wants to see them happy. IDOLiSH7: Third Beat ended its first cour with the set-up of a controversy against TRIGGER, as well as plenty of hints that trouble with Nagi's past and heritage will have a negative impact on IDOLiSH7. While I don't particularly care too much about Nagi, I am absolutely horrified to see the beginnings of TRIGGER's downfall. So you can bet that I'm on the edge of my seat already, waiting to see what terrible things lie in store for my favorite boys.

IDOLiSH7 Third Beat! resumed airing on October 2, 2022. It's available on Crunchyroll. - Stephanie


I am definitely looking forward to Chainsaw Man. I grew up on shonen anime, and as I've watched more and more of both shonen and other types of anime, it still holds a special place in my heart. I've also heard that it's a bit darker and more violent than most in the genre, which definitely piques my interest even further.

The premise of the story alone sounds very up my alley. Between all the praise Chainsaw Man has gotten and being a fan of MAPPA's anime adaptations as well as original works, I couldn't be more excited to get into this series.

Chainsaw Man opens on October 12, 2022. It'll simulcast via Crunchyroll. - Adam

Low-profile is a small, but ever-growing segment of the mechanical keyboard market, and one that already has some solid products. Logitech has its own low-profile entry and could be credited for bringing the sub-genre into the limelight. The Logitech G915 landed about two years ago and was praised for quality (though hammered for price). Since then, there have been a variety of competitors that have put out low-profile mechanical keyboards, both wired and wireless. Corsair and Cooler Master, along with smaller companies like Nuphy and Keychron have all thrown hats into the low-profile arena.

     Kona II Brume trailer snow trees dock boatBack in 2017, developer Parabole formally introduced itself to the gaming world through its debut title Kona. This distinct adventure game mixed detective-style puzzle solving with survival elements as it saw protagonist Carl Faubert attempting to uncover a mystery in the middle of the Northern Canadian wilderness. Although Kona received fairly mixed reviews on Metacritic, it earned a noticeably more positive reception on Steam, so it definitely has its fans. And luckily for them, Parabole and publisher Ravenscourt have just come back with an announcement trailer for its upcoming sequel Kona II: Brume. The Steam page shares only a few light details regarding Kona II's story, which once again stars Detective Faubert as he goes back to the Canadian wilderness. It even takes place in 1970 just like its predecessor. This time, though, Faubert travels to the fictional Manastan area, which houses a mysterious mist called the Brume that "[disconnects] a rural mining village f...

     Halo Infinite Causing Players To Lose Data / halo could shift to unreal engineHalo Infinite has had no shortage of problems ever since its gameplay was first revealed. Fans criticized the underwhelming graphics of the latest entry, and delays pushed it back by over a year. While the game saw decent reviews at launch, many of its features and content plans have suffered delays and cancellations. It's left fans understandably frustrated, but there may be some light at the end of the tunnel. New reports claim that Halo developer 343 Industries is considering a switch from its internal Slipspace Engine to Unreal Engine instead. The news comes from Jeremy Penter, also known as ACG, who tweeted to say: "I can only confirm that many sources are saying this and very clear that it's already been decided and Halo is for sure switching to Unreal. I feel like it's time for other switches behind the scenes including people leaving and their past problems. Unreal is a great choice."   A new weapon for the series The initial reveal trailer for Halo Infin...

     Beyond Good & Evil 2 Development TimeIt's an understatement to say that we've waited for Beyond Good & Evil 2 for some time. In fact, Beyond Good & Evil 2's development time has now surpassed that of Duke Nukem Forever. And considering how development for the game has been over the last few years, we could be waiting even longer. The managing editor for GamesIndustry.biz, Brendan Sinclair, noted the extended time frames in a poignant tweet. He pointed out that Duke Nukem Forever had a gap of 5,156 days between its announcement and release in 2011. Along the way, that game radically altered its style and hopped across gaming generations. On the other hand, Beyond Good & Evil 2 was announced 5,239 days ago, and the gap is only getting wider. When the numbers are laid out like that, it's shocking to see.   Beyond Good & Evil 2 will eventually be ready Beyond Good & Evil 2's development has been one of the stranger things in gaming over the last decade. The game has made ...
