     Downtime forces desperate Overwatch players to Roblox Overwatch clone

As Overwatch went offline on October 3 leading up to the launch of the highly-anticipated Overwatch 2, some hardcore players who didn't know what to do during the downtime turned to a Roblox Overwatch clone to satisfy their urge to play the popular hero shooter. Overblox, a Roblox sandbox game version of the iconic title from Activision Blizzard, is similar to Overwatch — or at least as similar as it can be with lower-fidelity graphics, blocky characters, and far fewer features.

I've been raring to write an Overwatch 2 review since Blizzard announced that their staple FPS game would be getting a sequel.

     Overwatch 2 tier list October 2022: top meta picks for every role

If you're looking for an Overwatch 2 tier list to help you gain a competitive edge in the FPS game, then we've got you covered. With 35 heroes to pick from across three Overwatch 2 roles, starting out in Blizzard's hero shooter can be pretty daunting, and it's not always easy to tell how strong your chosen character is when you're constantly coming up against different counters and team comps.

First off, some housekeeping. Our Overwatch 2 tier list isn't divided up into specific roles, but we will have a hero from each role represented in every bracket. S tier is the highest category, it represents heroes who are at the pinnacle of Overwatch 2's meta and don't require specific team comps or strategies to dominate with. A tier picks aren't necessarily worse than their S tier counterparts, but they're generally harder to use and get the best out of. B, C, and D tier follow suit, representing the lower echelons of Overwatch's roster.

Of course, just because we say a hero is a must-pick, it doesn't mean you can't do a better job with your preferred main character, but most players should be able to look at this tier list for a quick snapshot of who to play and why. Join us we rank every hero in the game, from the titanic tanks to squishy supports.

Want to know about the The Witcher 4? CD Projekt RED initially confirmed the existence of a new game in The Witcher series via a press release in March 2022. Since then, we've received confirmation that the upcoming title is the first instalment in a new trilogy, though it remains unclear whether it will follow the characters and events of the previous games. While it's safe to assume this new entry to the series won't be called The Witcher 4, we're going to call it that for now for lack of a better, more official term. The closest we have to a title at the moment is its internal codename: Polaris.

Alongside Polaris, we can also expect two other titles set in The Witcher universe, although these are spin-off titles rather than the subsequent games in the new trilogy. The first is codenamed Canis Majoris, while the other is codenamed Sirius. Read on to find out everything we currently know about The Witcher 4, as well as the upcoming games set to expand The Witcher universe.

Put a screenshot of Overwatch 2 next to a screenshot of Overwatch 1, and you'd be hard-pressed to spot any difference. Both display a vast chaotic ballet, in which two teams composed of some of the most well-realised characters in hero shooters wage war until one team emerges triumphant. Just like its predecessor, Overwatch 2 is one of the most delicately crafted sensory onslaughts I've experienced in a game.

Guiding my old favourite heroes through venerable maps like King's Row and Route 66, it's like I never left. In many ways, it feels like I've simply been given a reason to play Overwatch 1 again. Is that enough for a sequel? Is it enough to justify the incredibly confusing, lengthy, and oft-botched process of trying to make Overwatch feel relevant again? I'm not certain it is. But perhaps it should be.

Reilla Sweets Adventure - one of five Byking free rookie games on Steam Next Fest

Byking has published five free games on PCs to coincide with the Steam Next Fest event. The Japanese studio has been holding an annual game development program for new recruits. It also announced that this marks the first time it has publicized the games created by its new staff members.

Two out of the five titles feature robot combat. CustomBullet is a 1v1 mecha versus game with a robust robot and weapon customization system. RunOut is a three-player competitive game where each player can change the robot type on the go while trying to push other players into lava.

The other three titles are Ignite, an input-based magic action game; Toynip, a two-player cooperative tower defense game; and Reilla ~Sweets Adventure~, a 2D side-scrolling action game.

Though the actual games only support the Japanese language, Byking has added English descriptions on each title's Steam page. Despite being released on PCs, all five games only support gamepad controls instead of keyboard and mouse. Custom Bullet and Toynip also only have multiplayer modes with no single-player support.

[gallery columns="5" ids="936754,936757,936755,936758,936756" link="file"]

Byking is a Japanese game development studio that has been mostly working on team battle games, such as Gunslinger StratosStarwing Paradox, and Mobile Suit Gundam: Bonds of the Battlefield II. Shinichiro Obata established the company in 2008 after having previously worked at Capcom to develop games like Gundam SEED: Alliance vs. ZAFT.

In recent years, the company has been best known for developing two My Hero One's Justice games, which Bandai Namco released in 2018 and 2020, respectively. However, Byking also published its own game, titled Abyss Memory: Fallen Angel and the Path of Magic, in late April 2022. The latter is available on Nintendo Switch and PC via Steam.

Byking is also working with Amuzio to release a PlayStation 4 version of its 2016 arcade title Magicians Dead: Force of the Soul. The company initially revealed a Spring 2022 release window in November 2021. In May 2022, it delayed the game's release to Winter.

Soul Hackers 2 Patch

Atlus plans to improve the Soul Hackers 2 experience for all players with an update for the game. The Soul Hackers 2 patch will add some new features designed to make crawling dungeons less of a crawl, as well as to speed battles up. The update should arrive in "a few weeks", or sometime in early November 2022.

In its news post announcing the Soul Hackers 2 patch, Atlus detailed some of the changes planned.

The main addition is the "Dash" function. This speeds up Ringo's movement in dungeons so she and the party can cover more ground. The Dash function is a toggle that can be set anytime. It also accompanies an adjustment to one of Milady's Summoner Skills, "Assassin's Stride". Previously, the skill increased movement speed temporarily during exploration. Following the patch, it'll cause enemies to ignore Ringo for a set distance.

Second, the Soul Hackers 2 patch adds a "Speed Up" mode to battle. This speeds up combat animations.

Other adjustments include tweaks to loading screen tips, changes to on-screen prompts shown during Soul Level Increase to reduce instances of accidental input, adjustments to enemy spawn rates in dungeons, and the ability to move directly to shops from the City Map screen.

Lastly, the patch adds four new demons to fuse and use:

  • Pixie (Soul Hackers Ver.)
  • Neko Shogun
  • Aitvaras
  • Isis

The update lands in early November 2022. Soul Hackers 2 is available on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S. Check out Siliconera's official review of the game.

PC players who want to play Azure Striker Gunvolt 3 can now download its demo version on Steam. Inti Creates released the PC demo at the same time as the start of the platform's Steam Next Fest. Players will be able to progress through the demo until the "Holynight XIII" mission. They can also keep the demo's save data to transfer their progress to the upcoming full release.

The PC version supports Windows 7 and 8.1, as listed in the game's minimum requirements. It also mentioned a 2Ghz processor, a graphics card with 2GB VRAM, and 8GB RAM of memory. For the best performances, Inti Creates recommends a 3Ghz CPU, 4GB VRAM, and 16GB RAM on the Windows 10 operating system.

Inti Creates announced a release date of July 28, 2022, for Azure Striker Gunvolt 3 at New Game Expo Plus 2022 in late March 2022. However, that date only pertained to the Nintendo Switch version. Shortly afterward, on August 1, 2022, the company also released the game for Xbox One and Xbox Series X.

The full PC version of Azure Striker Gunvolt 3 will launch in Winter 2022. The side-scrolling action game is currently available on Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X. Inti Creates will also bring the title to PlayStation 4 and 5 on December 15, 2022.

Forever Entertainment updated the official website for its remake projects with a new section for Front Mission 2: Remake. The update doesn't include a more detailed release window, but it does include some new screenshots that show off the difference between the two upcoming games. It also has a section for Front Mission 3: Remake, which was confirmed at the 2022 Tokyo Game Show, though it doesn't have any content as of yet.

Check out the screenshots in the gallery. They're also visible on the Front Mission 2: Remake Nintendo eShop page.

The screenshots show off battle and tactical map screens from the gameDespite both being developed by Forever Entertainment, Front Mission 1st: Remake and Front Mission 2: Remake show off some notable differences. The second game's tactical maps have a more pronounced 3D effect, and the garage screen seen in the TGS 2022 trailer is also presented in a different style from Front Mission 1st's. The style of the character art is also somewhat different. Characters from the Front Mission 2 story like Thomas Norland and Lisa Stanley are visible in the screens and trailer.

This remake will be the first time Front Mission 2 has received an official release outside Japan. The story takes place 12 years after Front Mission 1st and is set in the fictional nation of Alordesh. A member of the Oceania Cooperative Union (a major geopolitical power bloc comprising Australia, New Zealand, and countries in Southeast, East, and South Asia), the Alordeshi military launches a coup against the OCU-led government in an attempt to declare independence. The story follows three OCU-affiliated officers as they try to survive the coup and investigate some of the forces hidden behind the scenes.

Super Mario Bros. movie direct

October 6, 2022, is a big day for folks interested in the upcoming Super Mario Bros Movie. That's when Nintendo will broadcast a special Nintendo Direct presentation revealing the film. The film itself releases in April 2023.

According to Nintendo of America's official Twitter account, the Super Mario Bros Movie Nintendo Direct is scheduled for 1:05 Pacific Time (4:05 ET) on October 6, 2022. Like other Nintendo Direct broadcasts, it'll be viewable on YouTube, accessed via this link. The timing is telling: 1:05 PM Pacific Time is exactly five minutes after the New York Comic Con reveal, which is set for 4:00 PM Eastern Time.

The tweet announcing the Direct also featured the film's first poster illustration, visible below.

Super Mario Movie

The poster shows Mario from behind, being led by Toad and surrounded by various other unnamed Mushroom Kingdom residents. This rendition of the Mushroom Kingdom is a bit different from the ones seen in the games. In the Super Mario Bros. Movie, it's a big, multi-layered city laid out over a cluster of hills and with different areas connected by multi-colored warp pipes. Shops sell Cheep Cheeps, as well as game-like artifacts such as Yoshi eggs, Note Blocks, and P Switches, too.

The film is being produced by Illumination, which produced Despicable Me, Minions, Sing, and The Secret Life of Pets, among others. It's being directed by Aaron Horvath and Michael Jelenic (Teen Titans Go!), with voice roles for Chris Pratt, Anya Taylor-Joy, Charlie Day, Jack Black, Seth Rogen, Keegan-Michael Key, and Charles Martinet.

The Super Mario Bros. Movie Nintendo Direct broadcast is scheduled for October 6, 2022, at 1:05 PM Pacific time. The film premieres on April 7, 2023.

     Mojo Wireless Gaming Mouse Review 1.As someone with a hearing sensitivity, the high-pitched click of a mouse can weigh on me. Good thing there are companies that make quieter mice, like Mojo. I reviewed Mojo's Pro Performance Silent Gaming Mouse last year. The first mouse I tried had clickier clicks than I expected, but I assumed this to be an anomaly, as the next one I tried was much quieter. At first. After a while, the right switch got clickier and stopped reliably registering a lot of inputs. I found that I couldn't play competitive online games using it. Still, I wanted to give Mojo another chance with a review of its more recent Silent Dual Mode Wireless Rechargeable Gaming Mouse. While the results are far from terrible, they are disheartening all the same. My initial experience somewhat mirrored my experience with previous type of Mojo mouse, albeit much worse. I plugged in the USB dongle, and then connected the charging cable to my PC. Nothing. I let it charge for an hour or so and pulled the cable ou...

It's no secret at this point that AMD's AM5 platform is pricey if you want to reap the performance of a Ryzen 7000 CPU. You need the processor itself, a compatible cooler with adequate cooling, DDR5 memory, and the new motherboard. Most X670 models revealed thus far have proven pricey, so the hope has been that the B650 platform will provide a cut-down experience that still meets the needs of gamers without all the added costs that professionals and overclockers typically want with high-end platforms.   T...

     Overwatch 2 Premium Battle Pass Mythic Genji SkinIn an unsurprising turn of events, Overwatch 2's launch hasn't exactly gone very smoothly. Today on October 4, Overwatch 2′s PvP was finally released in an official manner to the public, but, predictably, there are some kinks to work out. The new move to a free-to-play format likely has tons of curious players wanting to try out the game. As such, those hoping to join the fight are facing login errors, extensive queues, and connection losses. There have also been unfortunate reports of DDoS attacks. Overwatch 2 servers went live today at 12 PM PST / 3 PM EST, but some streamers were facing issues earlier in the day. Twitch streamer Seagull, for instance, faced a queue of over 20K players in his attempts to log in. He also got disconnected more than once, forcing him back into queue. While there are still players able to play the game, you might not be one of the lucky few. PC Gamer stated that it has even seen the queue climb to over 40K players. Fortunately, the inte...

     Playstation Pc Cloud Playstation PlusPC players will have to continue to watch from the window if want to check out some of the hottest new PlayStation exclusives. In a recent interview, Sony stated that exclusives won't be made available on PC for at least a year after their initial console launch. First-party PlayStation games may eventually make their way to PC, but there'll be a sizable wait before that happens. Along with this information, PlayStation Studios head Herman Hulst also let it slip that there's a potential exception to this rule. Live service games will likely make their way to PC a bit faster. This comes after news broke that PlayStation is looking to develop 10 live service games after its acquisition of Bungie. Sony has yet to reveal any of these live service games to the public, so regardless, PC players still have a lot of time to wait before they can play PlayStation games.   PlayStation exclusivity In regards to live service games, Hulst stated "because you want to have...

     Missile Command Recharged version art explosionFor well over two years, Atari has supplied players with healthy doses of modernized nostalgia through its Recharged series of retro remakes. This series began in May of 2020 with Missile Command: Recharged, a neon-soaked reimagining of one of Atari's most famous games. It earned an overall positive reception at the time, but since then, Atari has released six additional Recharged remakes that built upon that initial game's base with additional modes, more polished visuals, and other niceties. What would Missile Command: Recharged have looked like if it had incorporated all of the extra features included in the other remakes? Well, Atari and developers Adamvision Studios and SneakyBox sought to answer this question with a brand new version of Missile Command: Recharged that will arrive on November 1. One of the most immediately apparent changes in this "2.0" version of Missile Command: Recharged comes in the form of a completely overhauled visual style....
