Want to know who the best Overwatch 2 tank heroes are? There's a lot to consider when it comes to picking the best tank hero, especially since the PvP format made the switch from 6v6 to 5v5. Tanks now occupy just one spot on a team and they're arguably the most influential member. Players no longer have an off-tank to cover mistakes or pair abilities with, and as the FPS game shifts to a more messy, dive-based meta, picking the right tank hero is a major decision.Overwatch 2 heroes, Overwatch 2 PvE release date, Overwatch 2 tier list

A new Japanese visual novel is gaining attention for its inclusion of Google Maps and Street View. Rojimaga released Our Hometown in the Alley on Steam on October 14, 2022. The game uses real-life panoramas as background locations that the player and heroine can visit.
The team's website revealed that Kita e (Northward), a series of visual novels that Hudson Soft released for Dreamcast and PlayStation 2 between 1999 and 2004, served as an inspiration for this title. Like the Kita e series, Our Hometown in the Alley takes place in Japan's Hokkaido prefecture, but with a specific focus on the city of Hakodate. The player and the game's heroine will try to visit as many landmarks in Hakodate as they can over the course of a weekend, with the average time for a playthrough ranging from two to five hours.
There have been a number of visual novels featuring real-life photo backgrounds released earlier in Japan, such as the Fuuraiki series. But while those titles had the photos included in their standalone builds, Our Hometown in the Alley distinguishes itself by utilizing Google Maps and Street View.
After showing descriptions of the real-life facilities, the game will play a scene with the heroine, which also occasionally features quick-time event-based response choices. Rojimaga also added caution that the limitations of Google Maps API might render the browser-based visual novel unplayable if there are too many player sessions during the day.
[gallery columns="2" ids="937439,937440" link="file"]
The Steam version of Our Hometown in the Alley is available worldwide as of this writing with a price tag of $4.99 in the U.S., but the visual novel currently only supports the Japanese language. Outside of Steam, Rojimaga also sells the game via its BOOTH page for 500 yen. The team initially released the title for free on September 27, 2022, before it switched to paid sales and sent public press releases.
Our Hometown in the Alley is available on PCs. Rojimaga will release the title on Android and iOS devices later in October 2022. The development team also announced plans to create more games and services that utilize Google Street View.

A new game based on the Peter Grill anime series has been released. Titled Peter Grill and the Philosopher's Time: Defender of Virtue, it's available now on G123, a browser-based game platform. It supports Japanese, English, and Chinese languages.
Peter Grill and the Philosopher's Time is a romantic comedy anime series based on Daisuke Hiyama's manga of the same name. It stars the fantasy swordsman Peter Grill, who takes part in an international fighting tournament and wins, being crowned "Strongest Man In The World". His newfound fame and battle prowess inspire him to ask the Brave Swordsmen's Guild Master for permission to marry Luvelia, his beloved (and the daughter of the guildmaster).
Unfortunately for Peter, that same fame has drawn powerful women from other species, seeking to seduce him as a stud to establish a "superior bloodline". Ogre princesses, elven sorceresses, goblin childhood friends, and orcish outcasts alike compete for Peter's "seed", while Peter himself tries desperately to hide the harassment from his new fiancée, whom he has yet to do more than hold hands with. Her overprotective father, meanwhile, schemes to end their relationship. The "Philosopher's Time" in the title refers to what's sometimes called "sage time" or "post-nut clarity", a feeling of calm that people experience after achieving orgasm.
[gallery columns="4" ids="937421,937422,937423,937424" link="file"]
Peter Grill and the Philosopher's Time: Defender of Virtue features characters from the series and blends "idle game" mechanics with turn-based RPG-style battles. Players can form parties of six characters, set up parties, and take on monsters. The game is free-to-play and is supported by a gacha system for summoning new characters. Players can also gain affinity with the characters in their possession and unlock some saucy artwork.
Players who start the game during the launch window will receive some rewards. These include:
Rewards from the game's pre-registration and login campaigns will, when claimed, also add up to another 160 free Rare Summons.
Peter Grill and the Philosopher's Time: Defender of Virtue is available on G123, playable via browser. The first season of the anime and the ongoing second season are available on HIDIVE in North America.

The crossover between Evangelion and Godzilla will appear again in Japan's pachinko centers. Khara and Toho revealed that they are working with Bisty and Fields to release a new pachinko machine titled P Godzilla VS Evangelion ~G Cell Awakening~. It will feature a new story that includes an original fusion between Evangelion Unit-01 and Godzilla.
The pachinko title's storyline will have events from Godzilla and Evangelion take place in the same universe, with the former happening earlier. After a mysterious disappearance, the eponymous kaiju will reappear in the middle of the battle between NERV and the Angels. King Ghidorah will also appear as the leader of the Angels. Godzilla will then launch a beam toward Evangelion Unit-01's core that gives the latter a new transformation with the kaiju's features in order to fight King Ghidorah on a more equal footing.
The story trailer for P Godzilla VS Evangelion ~G Cell Awakening~ is available to watch right below:
Other than a new story, the pachinko machine will also feature three new songs. Rei Ayanami's voice actress, Megumi Hayashibara, will perform two new songs, "Shuuketsu no Hate ni (At the End of the Gathering)" and "Shuuketsu no Toki ~Territory~ (The Time of Gathering)," while the "Cruel Angel's Thesis" singer, Yoko Takahashi, will bring her newest song, "Teardrops of Hope."
The collaboration between Godzilla and Evangelion has been widely known since 2016, and most of the crossover projects appeared throughout the year. The collaboration also appeared in two Japanese mobile games: Monster Strike and Super Robot Wars X-Omega. While the latter title is no longer available, it featured an Evangelion Unit-01-colored MFS-3 MechaGodzilla in addition to the Godzilla itself.
P Godzilla VS Evangelion ~G Cell Awakening~ will appear in pachinko slot centers in Japan.

A massive win came for Discord users today, as the beacon of communication is expanding with a new shop, some new client-based activities, and a new affordable subscription service. In fact, the new activities will feature YouTube integration, allowing you and your friends to watch YouTube videos together while in the same call, or even play games like Chess or Poker. First off, the new Nitro Basic subscription is another subscription level that players can purchase for $2.99 USD a month. It's a cheaper alternative to the current Discord Nitro, which can be purchased for $9.99 USD a month or $49.99 USD a year. Nitro Basic is a simplistic service, only allowing you to use custom emojis and upload files of up to 50 MB (of course, most people probably want the emojis). For comparison, Nitro Classic gives you animated avatars, a discount on server boosts, and screen sharing of up to 1080p and up to 60 FPS.

With Halloween arriving in exactly two weeks, players have a wealth of new horror game releases to play in time for the holiday. But those who want to experience a different kind of horror from the usual — one involving deep-sea creatures rather than ghosts or unsightly abominations — can pick up developer Mintrocket's Dave the Diver. Now, to be clear, Dave the Diver is not meant to be a horror game, but that will hardly matter to those with an acute fear of the deep. Whether you want Dave the Diver for the potential horror or simply to experience a unique deep-sea adventure, you can pick it up once it dives into Early Access on October 27. Interestingly, Dave the Diver features two distinct sides to its gameplay loop: one involving underwater exploration and another that sees players managing a sushi restaurant. Naturally, when swimming through the deep ocean, players will encounter all sorts of underwater inhabitants both big and small. Some will act friendly t...

A Plague Tale: Requiem, the sequel to 2019's A Plague Tale: Innocence, brings back de Rune siblings Amicia and Hugo, as well as familiar characters from the previous game. Naturally, you'll once again need to survive the ravenous rat hordes, dastardly bandits, and heavily armored soldiers. I must admit that Requiem, much like Innocence, drew me in owing to its themes and concepts. Likewise, the visuals are breathtaking, with a phenomenal Photo Mode that's quite a treat for the player. Sadly, there are a few flaws that become glaring as time goes on. Hugo, what have you done? At the conclusion of A Plague Tale: Innocence, Amicia, Hugo, and supporting characters who are close to them sought to find a new home. The Macula, Hugo's disease that lets him control rats, was thought to have abated. Suddenly, the curse manifests once more, and the group decides to find a way to help him. Of course, things don't always go according to plan, causing the sibling...

The original Perfect Dark is a beloved first-person shooter that still gets plenty of attention to this day. And now, it looks like some versions of the game have been fully decompiled, which makes plenty of future projects possible. This is thanks to Ryan Dwyer, who posted the work on his Github page. From here, we could start to see some really cool stuff, including a proper PC port of Perfect Dark. This isn't the first time a beloved Nintendo-exclusive has been reverse-engineered. In fact, both The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past, and its sequel Ocarina of Time have been decompiled. The latter's project has been particularly fruitful and brought all kinds of improvements to the game, including 60 FPS support and full camera controls. And since Perfect Dark is a shooter, a PC port could massively improve the game's experience. Plus, we could see some truly ambitious mods and fan-made content that pushes the game in new ways. When cool and exciting project...
