If you want the best optic in the game then you're probably gunning for the Modern Warfare 2 Slimline Pro, which is reminiscent of the impossibly clear red dot sight you could equip in the original multiplayer games. However, while most attachments in the game have a clear level unlock path attached to them, which you can view by mousing over it in the Gunsmith menu, the Slimline Pro is missing any unlock information.
So, how do you go about attaching this optic to your best Modern Warfare 2 guns? Well, at the time of writing it seems that you can only test this sight in private matches where every weapon and attachment is unlocked by default. In standard multiplayer, it looks like it will remain locked until an associated challenge goes live for the optic.The best Modern Warfare 2 guns, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 release date, Modern Warfare 2 Gunsmith

Knowing how to slide cancel in Modern Warfare 2 is a skill that many thought had been eradicated from the FPS game, a peculiar movement that sees your character hop into a knee-slide, gain speed, then jump straight back up. It was a method used to 'break' someone's camera, meaning that you were much harder to track, and therefore, much harder to shoot.
Slide cancelling in Modern Warfare 2 is alive and well, although the method to perform the manoeuver is a lot more complicated than in the previous Call of Duty games. It remains to be seen whether the slide cancel will be as useful as years gone by, but if you manage to master it, it's sure to get you out of some scrapes. Here's how to slide cancel in Modern Warfare 2.The best Modern Warfare 2 guns, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 release date, Modern Warfare 2 Gunsmith

Modern Warfare 2 battle rifles are a new weapon type for the Call of Duty series, and they might even be a new favourite for some thanks to their similarity to some of the best assault rifles in the multiplayer game. While you have to fight against tougher kickback compared to most ARs, you're rewarded with greater damage and improved range. Once we get a proper look at the new battle rifles after the Modern Warfare 2 release date, we'll have a better idea of which Gunsmith attachments can help with that recoil, too.
There are only four of these new battle rifles available in Modern Warfare 2 at launch. While you may be more familiar with the wide variety of pre-existing assault rifles, we highly recommend you give these new rifles a try. As there aren't many, we've listed and described all four below, but consider this a tier list of sorts, as you'll find them in order from best to worst.

If you managed to get your hands on the Modern Warfare 2 Vault Edition, the FTAC Recon is one of the best guns available at the start of the FPS game as it can be fully equipped with attachments from the get-go. This gives you the opportunity to increase its magazine size and improve the battle rifle in a number of key areas.
The FTAC Recon's limited number of bullets make this weapon difficult to recommend for beginners, but the incredible fire power can be devastating in the right hands. If you aren't as confident in your abilities, you may want to play tactically by avoiding being caught out by the enemy team.The best Modern Warfare 2 guns, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 release date, Modern Warfare 2 Gunsmith

Riot Games recently pulled back the curtain on the brand new Valorant Premier game mode, which is nothing like the previous snow fights, replication, and whatnot. Instead, Premier mode will challenge the participants to be better than Radiant and not settle for a mere rank badge, pitting them against one another in a tournament style instead. Only 60% of the details have been shared, but the FPS game's newest mode is likely the first rendition of previously teased Path to Pro that directly connects with Challengers 2023.
In April, Riot Games highlighted Valorant's future and subtly touched on Path to Pro, a system connecting players to VCT through a long but effective process. It was also an answer to partnership contrarians concerned about Valorant's tier-3 ecosystem. Now, the video game giant has unveiled Premier mode, which appears to pave the first path to Valorant's uber-competitive esports scene.Valorant characters: all agents and abilities, Valorant tier list, Valorant crosshair codes

The Modern Warfare 2 Prestige system is a way for players to show off their experience in the FPS game. It serves as an unlock platform for various cosmetics. It's been a staple of Call of Duty for years, with Infinity Ward opting for seasonal progression, rather than something that lasts the entire game cycle.
A seasonal Modern Warfare 2 Prestige cycle would mean that you rank up as usual, but instead of 'prestiging' and adding a permanent marker to your profile, as in previous iterations of Modern Warfare, the rank will reset with the start of each in-game season.

Equipping yourself with one of the best Modern Warfare 2 LMGs allows you to take enemies down in a flash in the multiplayer game. Featuring rapid fire rates, impressive damage output, and large magazines, these slow and heavy weapons require you to tame their strong recoil.
In their most basic form, LMGs have a magazine holding between 60 to 75 rounds, so you won't be bothered by reloading, and can simply unload those bullets into your opponent at speed. With their short-to-medium range and fast time to kill coming in most useful in smaller, more built up multiplayer maps like Farm 18 and Breenbergh Hotel, you'll definitely want to know which are the best Modern Warfare 2 LMGs to equip.The best Modern Warfare 2 guns, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 release date, Modern Warfare 2 Gunsmith

I've had an eye on All Quiet Roads for months, but between Tile Cities and Blink Planets it seemed a bit much to throw this recommendation at you as well. But a game exclusively about the thing I hate most holding my interest this well has to be respected.

Stress Level Zero's Boneworks was Half-life: Alyx before Half-Life: Alyx released. Released in December 2019, its combination of deeply tactile interactions with a campaign heavily inspired by Half-Life 2 represented a major step forward for VR experiences at the time. It had a fair few rough edges, and you needed a cast-iron stomach to play it, but for about four months it was the ambitious, all-encompassing VR experience that the medium had hitherto lacked.
Then Half-Life: Alyx came around, raising the (crow)bar so high that you'd need to be Mr Fantastic or some sort of bird with hands to reach it. Which is partly why Bonelab, the newly released sequel to Boneworks, hasn't quite gelled with me in the way its older sibling did. Technologically, its still very impressive, and noodling around with its massive interactive potential remains undeniably fun. But it often feels like a lot of good ideas with too little connective tissue between them. It's also even less compromising on your physiology than Boneworks was, seemingly determined to make existing in VR as uncomfortable as possible.

My strongest memory from my 100-hour-long first playthrough of Horizon Zero Dawn was the first time I took on a Thunderjaw. A colossal T-Rex-esque machine with powerful legs, twisted metal horns, and artillery cannons strapped to its back, it loomed larger than any other enemy I'd seen so far in the game. My first thought as I crouched behind a nearby rock and surveyed its chromium splendour was: "I am definitely not yet ready to fight this thing."
My second thought came quickly after the first, when my cover was blown by a nearby Watcher that immediately reared back and emitted a shrill noise that alerted the Thunderjaw to my presence. "Oh shite. Here we go."

I'm not a very big enjoyer of horror games. On the very rare occasion that I do boot up a horror game, a chemical change seems to occur in my body. The part of my brain responsible for going "holy mother of hell get me away from this scary thing" is dampened. I expect to be scared, and therefore I'm more resilient to said scariness. I might just not be very good at getting into the horror games mindset. My brain is too busy battening down all the hatches and readying the engines of war against the oncoming spookies and ghosties.
The times I've been most scared playing a game are when I don't expect to be scared. And what better way to lull myself into a false sense of security this Halloween than to play an otherwise not-so-scary game, with just one particularly horror-esque moment?

I'm a big Dark Pictures fan, but had some reservations about this latest outing due to its subject matter, which this time around draws more inspiration from real-life serial killers than supernatural legends. Still, by the end of my 90 minutes or so with the game, my feelings had evolved considerably, and I'm happy to say I'm now way more excited for it than I was. In fact, I think this could easily end up as the best Dark Pictures game yet.

Ugly sweaters are a Christmas tradition, and there will soon be official Pokemon ones. The Pokemon Company announced a collection of attire featuring famous characters from the series. The sweaters start from $44.99 and are immediately available to order. [Thanks, Game Watch!]
Not every Christmas-themed Pokemon sweater is an "ugly" one. There are a few, such as the Vulpix & Alolan Vulpix Snowflake Knit Sweater, that are designed to look more "presentable." Since the sweaters are all over $20, they are eligible for free shipping if you live in the United States or Puerto Rico.
Here are some pictures of the ugly Pokemon Christmas sweaters:

Aside from ugly Christmas sweaters, you can also buy Pokemon-themed ornaments for your tree. There are also stockings, throw pillows, and throw blankets. For those who decorate their house or tree with little village sets, there are also some Pokemon-themed items to spruce things up.
For those who want to celebrate the spooky season before the festive one, the Pokemon Center also offers more Halloween-themed sweaters.
The Pokemon sweaters are immediately available to purchase in the Pokemon Center in Japan and the United States. Pokemon Scarlet and Violet will come out for the Nintendo Switch on November 18, 2022.

It's that time of year. You know the one, when people get in the spirit of the Halloween season by picking out what they might think are the best horror game or thrilling title to play. We've recommended games to play for the holiday before. This time, we're specifically focusing on our scariest recommendations. We'd also appreciate it if you'd share your most terrifying ones too!
For me, the best horror game to play on Halloween will always be an entry in the Fatal Frame series. I've played every localized entry enough times to know exactly where some of the more notable ghosts are. I shouldn't still be scared of some encounters. Yet it always gets me. I'm always going to forget how to find my way through the labyrinthine town and houses of Fatal Frame II: Crimson Butterfly. I'm always going to question Miku Hinasaki's life choices. It's just a solid series to play through during the spookiest season. — Jenni
As the world's biggest coward, I don't like horror games all that much. That usually means spooky season is a time for me to get comfy with grindy gacha games or MMOs.
Unfortunately, due to the nature of The Outer Wilds, it's impossible to really talk about what happens without spoiling it, so suffice it to say that both the base game comes highly recommended for any time of year, with the DLC being particularly appropriate for those wanting to spend a spooky time exploring in the dark. — Josh
Halloween is a time of friendship, whether it's eating candy together or going to a party. And just like how horror movies are more fun with people, horror games are elevated with your friends. That's why for this year, my vote for the best game to play on Halloween goes to games such as Identity V, Dead by Daylight, and Friday the 13th. They may not be as spine-tingling spooky as some of the other entries on the list. But you'll definitely end up having a jolly good time with your friends. Or even make some new ones throughout the night! Sometimes you're screaming because of a jump scare and sometimes you're screeching because your teammate did something stupid. But hey, rowdiness is all part of the fun. — Stephanie

The arcade version of Groove Coaster will no longer get new songs and content additions after November 2022. Taito made the announcement via the game's website and YouTube video. The long-running rhythm arcade game will still have its online features available as the company shifts its focus to other platform releases.
Taito cited hard drive space limitations as the primary reason behind this decision. It had considered suggestions from users, such as producing a new cabinet version or installing a larger hard drive. But the company ultimately concluded that there is a limit in keeping the same game running for a long time after nine years have passed since the initial arcade version launched in 2013.
Taito will release the last four songs for the arcade version of Groove Coaster throughout November 2022 on a weekly basis. It also teased that these songs will have a very high difficulty, with the last one "Got a over score?" set to become the hardest 'final boss.'
Despite the cessation of new content updates, Taito will still retain the online connectivity and services for Groove Coaster 4MAX: Diamond Galaxy — the latest arcade version — for the foreseeable future. It will also consider re-running past time-limited events that added exclusive content.
Masaki Mori, one of the composers behind "Got a over Score?" added that the company will continue to add new content for Groove Coaster games on other platforms, such as the Nintendo Switch's Wai Wai Party.

Good Smile Company opened up pre-orders for the Pop Up Parade figure of the VShojo Vtuber Nyatasha Nyanners. This marks the first VShojo character to appear in this collection. People in Japan will be able to get her in May 2023. In North America, she is expected to show up at the same time. The figure will cost ¥4,800/$31.99.
The Nyatasha Nyanners figure outfit is based on a new one that appeared in January 2022. She's wearing her black dress without her overcoat. This is a static, non-scale figure that stands at about seven inches tall.
And here are two pictures that offer a fuller look at her pose and how the outfit looks.
As a reminder, the Pop Up Parade line is something of a "budget" collection from Good Smile Company. This means all figures tend to be $31.99/¥4,800. There are some exceptions, due to licensing costs for example.
While this is the first VShojo Pop Up Parade figure, a few Nendoroids already appeared. Nyatasha Nyanners' came up first. Then an Ironmouse one debuted. Also, a Veibae Pop Up Parade figure is in the works.

It turns out Story of Seasons: A Wonderful Life won't be a Switch exclusive, as PS5, Xbox Series X, and PC versions are also on the way. XSEED Games confirmed that it will be multiplatform. Every version will appear in North America at the same time. However, there's no exact release date yet beyond Summer 2023.
To go along with the reveal, there's a new trailer showing how the updated version of what was originally Harvest Moon: A Wonderful Life looks. It uses footage from the Switch version of Story of Seasons: A Wonderful Life, so people don't get to see how it looks on the PS5, Xbox Series X, or PC just yet. However, it does show what it is like to farm, mine, interact with villagers and potential romance options, and spend time with your family as you all grow up.
As a reminder, the new feature here is the ability to age. After getting married and starting a family, your character, your spouse, and your child will all gradually grow older. This also means new special events going over certain milestones as the years pass by.
Story of Seasons: A Wonderful Life will come to the Nintendo Switch, PS5, Xbox Series X, and PC via Steam in Summer 2023. The original Harvest Moon: A Wonderful Life appeared on the GameCube and PS2. The official website is now open.

The release of Jujutsu Kaisen: Phantom Parade, the mobile game based on Jujutsu Kaisen, will be delayed until Spring 2023. Its original Japanese release date was supposed to fall time within 2022. However, Sumzap updated people by discussing some of the content it is working on, including sharing as a second trailer. [Thanks, Famitsu!]
According to Sumzap's official Twitter account, the reason behind the delay is to improve the overall quality of the game. Sumzap reassured potential players that the development is going smoothly. In the second trailer, you can see a bit more of what the gameplay is like. More specifically, it focused on the special moves of the characters, as well as how key scenes from the anime will look in the mobile game.
You can check out the second trailer here:
In the video, we can see characters like Fushiguro, Panda, and Inumaki using their signature cursed techniques. At the end, there is also a combination move between Yuji and Todo.
As a reminder, Jujutsu Kaisen: Phantom Parade will mostly follow the plot of the show and manga, but it will likely have its own story as well. So far, we know of three original characters will be in the game.
Jujutsu Kaisen is a manga and anime series that was wildly popular when the anime originally aired in 2020. The manga is one of the best-selling manga series of all time, with over 70 million copies as of August 2022. The movie based on the prequel, Jujutsu Kaisen 0, made over 5.8 billion yen during its theatrical run.
Jujutsu Kaisen: Phantom Parade will come out for mobile devices in Japan in Spring 2023.

Bandai Namco opened pre-registrations for Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans G on the Japanese Google Play Store and Apple App Store. The company will launch the mobile game in Japan within 2022.
Iron-Blooded Orphans G is a mobile app that will combine anime with visual novel and turn-based battle games in its storytelling. It will gradually cover the Iron-Blooded Orphans TV show that aired from 2015 to 2017. Bandai Namco will add new side-story episodes featuring the livelihood of characters from the TV show. The app will also include Urðr Hunt, a brand-new spin-off story that takes place in the same Post Disaster universe.
The company also runs a couple of campaigns to promote the mobile game's launch. It is holding a sweepstake on the Japanese Twitter account. Ten lucky people who applied by November 4, 2022, will be able to win a replicated illustration of Mikazuki Augus and Wistario Afam, the respective protagonists of Iron-Blooded Orphans and Urðr Hunt.
When over 300,000 people either pre-registered for the mobile game or followed its social media accounts on Twitter or Line, Bandai Namco will let all players unlock the app's key art as a scene card, the Gundam Barbatos 1st Form as a usable Mobile Suit, and Mikazuki Augus and Orga Itsuka as pilots.
In 2021, Bandai Namco announced that it would release Iron-Blooded Orphans G in Spring 2022. However, it missed the window as it still had not released the app by the time the season ended. With the pre-registrations just opened, the company stated that it will still release the mobile game within 2022.

A short music video for "Zero Step," which is a song to commemorate the 10th anniversary of Kuroko's Basketball, is available to watch on YouTube. The video is part of the Kuroko's Basketball 10th Anniversary project that has been going on since April 2022. Granrodeo and Kensho Ono, who both sang openings for Kuroko's Basketball, sang "Zero Step." The music video also features both new and old animation from Production I.G. [Thanks, Comic Natalie!]
The video features the members of Seirin High School's basketball team, as well as the different members of the Generation of Miracles. You can also see the various players on the teams that the Generation of Miracles play for in high school. Aside from contributing openings for the show, Granrodeo and Kensho Ono also portrayed major characters in Kuroko's Basketball. Ono (Genshin Impact, Aldnoah Zero) played protagonist Tetsuya Kuroko, while Granrodeo's lead singer Kisho Taniyama (Bungo Stray Dogs, Monster Hunter Rise) played Tatsuya Himuro.
You can watch the music video for "Zero Step" here:
Kuroko's Basketball was a sports manga that ran in Weekly Shonen Jump from 2008 to 2014. An anime adaptation ran from 2012 to 2015 for three seasons. It follows Tetsuya Kuroko, who is awful at playing basketball but really good at supporting his teammates with his passes. He was a member of the Generation of Miracles – a group of prodigal basketball players – in middle school. With his new team and partner, Taiga Kagami, he faces off against his old teammates.

A new update from Rabbit & Bear Studios indicated that the developers have begun preparations to record Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes voice acting. In the Steam page update's "Murayama's Monthly Development Report" section, Yoshitaka Murayama brought it up.
According to Murayama, preparations have begun for Eiyuden Chronicles: Hundred Heroes voice acting recording. The number of characters in the game that will need accounting for poses a unique challenge, as the game is fully voiced. The voice actors for the three main characters (Noah, Melisa, and Sei) were announced at the Tokyo Game Show. However, many more voice actors and lines will need to be recorded to cover things like battle lines, town chatter, and incidental dialog. There are over 100 characters in the roster and almost 80 different lines per character just for battle.
Murayama estimated that, at the moment, Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes voiceover will reach more than 60,000 lines. To get that done, he said, will take "a single army of voice actors."
As for the rest of the update, the team uploaded some celebratory Halloween art featuring the "self-proclaimed magical girl" character, Mellor. It also profiled an enemy called the Maiden-Revenant.
Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes is in development and will release in 2023 on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch. The prequel game Eiyuden Chronicle: Rising is available now.

The spin-off AU manga FFXIV Eorzea Private Academy will end with Chapter 7. Currently, the second part of Chapter 6 is available to read on Manga-Up for everyone. Those with a premium account can read up to part 1 of Chapter 7. The comics will also be available in tankobon format. More information will appear in the future.
Accessing Manga-Up from an internet browser will allow you to read the first chapter of FFXIV Eorzea Private Academy. However, to read chapters past that, you will need to access the service from its mobile app. Unfortunately, it is impossible to download the app outside of Japan through official methods.
The tankobon version of the FFXIV Eorzea Private Academy will likely appear soon after the manga concludes with Chapter 7. Those outside of Japan who wish to read this will probably have an easier time importing the tankobon. Of course, this does not take into account whether or not the book will have a localized version.
FFXIV Eorzea Private Academy is Square Enix's official high school AU manga based on characters from the popular MMORPG. It stars Alisaie and Alphinaud as the main characters. The plot of the manga focuses on the Light and Dark schools merging into one school. As one can imagine, the antagonists of FFXIV are in the Dark school while Alisaie, Alphinaud, and other friendly characters are in Light.
Final Fantasy XIV is readily available worldwide on PS4, PS5, and Windows PC.

For example, Nahida could pick Bird Egg Sushi, Jade Parcels, or Mondstadt Hash Brown. After picking a recipe, you'll get a chance to "share" the event on social media.
After finishing the event, you get a number of rewards. People will get an in-game mail with 2 Mystic Enhancement Ores, 3 Nagadus Emerald Fragments, 40 Primogems, and 20,000 Mora. People will also get to download a Genshin Impact wallpaper of Nahida featuring the web event artwork.

Then, a few months later she'll make her North American debut in September 2023. Pre-orders for the character are open, and she costs ¥7,800/$51.99. Sadako will come with her familiar well and TV, so new owners can set up scenes.
There are also two face plates included with the Sadako Nendoroid, even though her hair almost entirely covers her face. A second "bangs" place allows one of her eyes to be exposed. One option features a frantic, bloodshot eye peeking out.
Good Smile Company also announced a special purchase bonus if people buy the figure direct from its storefront. People will get a second "TV" option that makes it look like static is on the screen.

Tetsuya Nomura shared his take on Gilgamesh in honor of the launch of the Stranger of Paradise: Final Fantasy Origin Wanderer of the Rift DLC. It is an almost entirely red and black drawing of the recurring character, with a hint of "light" over his glowing eyes. The Twitter post sharing it also noted that he's looking for someone to face him.
Here's the official tweet revealing Tetsuya Nomura's take on Stranger of Paradise: Final Fantasy Origin's Gilgamesh. As a reminder, Nomura served as both a producer and artist for the game.
Gilgamesh first appeared in Final Fantasy V in 1992 as a villain. Since then, he's appeared in multiple mainline entries and spin-offs. For example, he appears as a Guardian Force in Final Fantasy VIII and showed up as an NPC in Final Fantasy IX and XI. Most recently, he appeared as a racer and rival in Chocobo GP.
Stranger of Paradise: Final Fantasy Origin is available for the PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and PC, as is its new Wanderer of the Rift DLC. Following the add-on's release, a transmogrification (transmog) feature also appeared in the game.

Earlier this year, studio Remedy Entertainment revealed that it had both a spinoff and a sequel to its 2019 game Control in development. After months of silence, the studio has finally come out with a development update on both of these projects in a fiscal earnings call as reported by GameSpot. Both games remain in the early stages of development. According to Remedy, the Control spinoff, which goes by the codename "Condor," is currently in the proof-of-concept stage. The studio still needs "to work on a multitude of important game design elements and finalize the key pillars before moving the project to the next development phase." As for the game itself, we know so far that it will feature four-player cooperative multiplayer as the focus. Remedy has remained tight-lipped on the game's other aspects, so we'll probably only learn about them once the developer officially announces it. What about the sequel? Meanwhile, the Control sequel, c...

Intel 13th gen CPUs are here, bringing another generational improvement to gaming and more flexibility for content creators than before. Consider it an enhanced version of last year's revolutionary Alder Lake Hybrid core design that mixes high performance cores and efficiency cores on a single die. The high clock speeds are sure to turn heads, but there's more to Intel's codenamed Raptor Lake lineup than just that. In this review of the i9-13900K, we'll cover Intel's major architecture changes, what to know about the specs and platform, how the gaming performance stacks up, and if it's worth the cash. The CPU market competition is fierce now thanks to AMD's Ryzen 7000 Series. However, it's interesting to consider that both Intel's 12th gen and AMD's Ryzen 5000 are still excellent processors for gaming while being more affordable. This raises the question of whether or not it makes sense to buy the latest gen from either compan...

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 has officially launched, and you can now jump into every map and mode the title has to offer. The beta back in September gave fans a taste of what multiplayer would involve, including a range of game modes, a glimpse at the new gunsmith, and traditional 6v6 as well large-scale map. Eagled eyed players may have realized that a map that featured in the beta is now missing from the full game. The map known as Valderas Museum has mysteriously been removed from Modern Warfare 2. The multiplayer beta featured four 6v6 maps: Breenbergh Hotel, Farm 18, Mercado Las Almas, and Valderas Museum. The museum based map was on the larger side with a mix of indoor and outdoor combat. In addition, the Valderas Museum map took players to a battlefield that was based in Spain. As a result of its disappearance, there are now a total of 10 multiplayer maps in the game.

One of the benefits that modern gaming has brought is the use of cross-platform play. Cross-play allows players from both console and PC to team up with (or against) their friends in the same game with little hassle (usually). Modern Warfare 2 is just one of the titles that has implemented the feature for its latest release. However, it seems that Xbox and PC Modern Warfare 2 players cannot easily toggle cross-play, leading to frustrations on both ends. Many have reported that the PC and Xbox dashboards for Modern Warfare 2 lack the option to easily disable cross-play matchmaking. There is an option on the system level for Xbox players, which means you have to scroll through your Xbox preferences to reach it. Cross-play benefits those who simply want to play with friends regardless of their preferred gaming platform. But it does present problems when players are forced to join lobbies with no say as to whether their entire team will be Xbox players who have to fight against an enti...

I'm always happy to try out games that mix restaurant management with other genres. And Dave the Diver is one of the most promising games of the sort that I've seen. It just hit Early Access, and is set to stay there until it releases sometime in the first half of 2023. The current build contains the game's prologue and first three chapters, with the rest to come with updates. The game already has hours of playtime and is quite a unique experience. But the question stands — is Dave the Diver worth it in Early Access, or should you come up for air before submerging yourself? Dave the Diver is, unsurprisingly, about a diver named Dave, who partners with a man named Cobra and a chef who goes by Bancho (a Japanese word meaning "chief"). Their goal? To make Bancho's restaurant, Bancho Sushi, a successful enterprise. It's Dave's job to catch the restaurant's fish and then assist Bancho in running the restaurant. But there are othe...

Asterigos: Curse of the Stars is yet another game in a long line of games that wants to liken itself to the "souls" genre despite actually having very little in common with From Software's desire to beat people into submission. Aside from a lack of a map and losing some resources when you die, Asterigos has nothing to do with Dark Souls or its ilk, but that doesn't mean it's lacking in good qualities. While it might not offer anything new or groundbreaking there is a solidly designed action-RPG here that offers a lot of content for a relatively low price, and for the right person that's going to be a killer deal.
