Become a Pilot With Gundam Mercury Asticassia Uniform Tracksuits

Premium Bandai started offering cosplay tracksuits based on the uniform used at Asticassia School of Technology from Mobile Suit Gundam: The Witch From Mercury through its official website. These will come in four sizes – S, M, L, and XL – and there are two variations. There is the usual blue-green one that the normal students wear and the Holder version that Suletta has. [Thanks, Famitsu!]

In the show, most of the students wear the blue-green version of the uniform. However, as the result of Suletta winning her duel against Guel in the first episode, she gets to wear a white one. This is proof that she is the "Holder," which means that she is Miorine's betrothed.

asticassia uniform gundam witch from mercury tracksuits cosplay

Both versions of the tracksuit will allow you to remove the necktie, and the sleeves are fairly loose. This is to properly recreate the look of the uniform as it appears on the show. Due to the soft material, you can also use the tracksuits as lounge wear.

Mobile Suit Gundam: The Witch From Mercury is available to stream from Crunchyroll. The plot follows Suletta Mercury, a Mercurian girl who can pilot the Gundam Aerial. However, most of the world has long since banned the GUND Format in mobile suits, which makes her Aerial an illegal weapon. Nonetheless, Suletta attends the Asticassia School of Technology to fulfill her dream of being a normal girl and making friends.

You can pre-order the Mobile Suit Gundam: The Witch From Mercury Asticassia School of Technology cosplay tracksuits from November 6-27, 2022 via Premium Bandai, and they will ship out in February 2023. It will cost 13,200 JPY (which is approximately $90). This price does not include the shipping or handling fees. International customers will not be able to order it from Premium Bandai.

Yoshitaka Amano VR Experience NFTs

A special VR museum experience focused on the art of Yoshitaka Amano will appear in a digital museum. However, the website also mentions the inclusion of NFTs that will be released through ZIELCHAIN in 2023. Yoshitaka Amano also released a statement regarding the production of NFTs associated with his name and artwork. However, a release date VR Art Museum experience was not included in the initial announcement. Instead, the website simply states that more information about this "first-of-its-kind" installment will appear in the future.

Regarding Amano's statement concerning the production of NFTs, this is what he had to say:

This work is not mine alone, but I value the "connection" with everyone who participates in this project, and I'm trying to weave a story while the participating members inspire each other.

I am very much looking forward to communicating with many people through this project and participating in this new initiative, where new values will emerge from my drawings, or where something completely unexpected will be proposed.

In a sense, I think of this work as a challenge beyond my understanding.

Through "ZIELCHAIN," let's connect the ideas of people all over the world and turn page after page of the story together.

A preview of the museum features a motion graphic of key artwork from Final Fantasy III. The VR museum will have two different themes. The first is "candy," which will involve artwork inspired by a digital girl. The second is "crystal," and that will feature his work from various numbered entries in the Final Fantasy series.

The Yoshitaka Amano VR Art Museum experience will appear sometime in the future, with NFTs releasing in 2023.

yomawari lost in the dark review

Like comedy, horror is subjective. Some people prefer the thrills that come with a jump scare, whereas others prefer a slower and more psychological horror. In that sense, Yomawari: Lost in the Dark can satisfy both camps. The majority of it is atmospheric, building up dread as you explore eerie locales. Then, right when the tension starts to reach a fever pitch, it throws you into fast-paced action sequences during which a second of hesitation can cost you your life. As soon as the game started and I saw the warning, I knew I was in for a good time. With a relatively short play time of 20-30 hours, it's a well-paced horror game that never overstays its welcome.

[caption id="attachment_939034" align="aligncenter" width="768"]yomawari lost in the dark warning I sent this warning to my friend, and she got mad at me for spooking her.[/caption]

Fear the Living and the Dead

Yomawari: Lost in the Dark deals with some pretty heavy themes, such as bullying and suicidal imagery. When you first meet Yuzu (whose name you can change), her classmates are bullying her for reasons that become apparent later in the game. Yuzu finds out that there is a curse on her, and she must recover her memories about a mysterious girl in order to break it. However, she only has until sunrise. You need to explore the town and collect seven different items to help her remember everything.

Unlike some horror games, Yomawari: Lost in the Dark never loses its edge. Even classics such as Silent Hill 2 and Forbidden Siren eventually plateau. This could be because you become more focused on solving the puzzles or only so many different kinds of enemies appear. Meanwhile, Yomawari: Lost in the Dark throws new spirits at you at every turn, and the puzzles are not so difficult that you become frustrated. There are also lots of hidden secrets and spooks around town to occupy your attention if you want a break from the plot.

The areas you have to clear in order to retrieve your memories are the standout moments. Not only are all seven locations stereotypically "scary," but they all feature different pursuers. This means there's a high chance you'll encounter something you find nasty. For example, the Slenderman-like spirit in the school didn't scare me. However, the starfish in the cave and the dolls in the bamboo forest unnerved me enough to turn on a light. Like a goodie bag of scares, there's something for everyone.

[gallery ids="939037,939036,939035" link="file"]

Beauty in the Darkness

A key theme of Yomawari is courage, and this is reflected in the gameplay. Closing your eyes and walking in between spirits -- all while Yuzu's heartbeat thumps deafeningly through the speakers -- constantly tests that. It also feels like the development team calculated the spirits' speed in the more intense chase sequences so that there is perpetually a pixel of space between you and them. If you hesitate or are unsure for even a second, you lose. Intentional or not, games that integrate their theme in a way that is unique to the medium is something I love.

Another thing that is pretty immediately apparent about is that it's beautiful. Not only are the backgrounds lovingly detailed and the characters move with incredible smoothness, but the music is lovely. The main theme reminds me of a Ghibli movie, which is perhaps an odd comparison to make considering the subject matter found in Yomawari: Lost in the Dark. Like a horror video I once saw, the game consistently repeats the warning to avoid looking at the sky. But if it doesn't want us to look up there, then why make it so pretty?

[caption id="attachment_939038" align="aligncenter" width="768"]the sky This isn't even the nicest picture of the sky from this game.[/caption]

Not Everything Can Be Perfect

However, staying alive is tricky when janky Nintendo Switch controls can get in the way. I will say that I'm not sure how much of this is due to my Joy-Cons, but I have never encountered problems like these in other games. Yuzu has some trouble walking downward. For some reason, she will slow down unnaturally, but only when moving in that direction. A lot of key moments in the latter part of the game heavily rely on ringing a bell, which you can accomplish by shaking your controllers. However, no matter how hard I shook them or held the controllers, the bell simply would not ring. At first, I thought this was supposed to be symbolic of Yuzu slowly working up her courage, but even in boss fights that use the mechanic, it took forever.

Yomawari: Lost in the Dark is the third entry in the deceptively cute Yomawari series of horror games and continues an effectively frightening tradition. Fans of J-Horror will likely appreciate the slow and atmospheric situations, but there are plenty of jump scares to keep you on your toes. The story is simple, but effective, and the unique way it goes about conveying the tale will keep you glued to the screen. Just make sure you don't look away, though. There's no telling what you'll see in the dark.

Yomawari: Lost in the Dark is available on the PS4, Windows PC, and Nintendo Switch.

SINoALICE NieR Reincarnation

Another Yoko Taro narrative will converge with NieR Reincarnation on November 10, 2022. A SINoALICE crossover will appear in NieR Reincarnation. This will bring SINoALICE-inspired variants into the game, as shown in the short teaser trailer for the upcoming event. More information will be released in the future, which will include the specifics of what players can obtain and if there will be a unique story to accompany the crossover. The SINoALICE and NieR Reincarnation crossover event will appear on November 10, 2022.

You can watch the event trailer below.


This isn't the first time other Yoko Taro-associated works have appeared in NieR Reincarnation. A Drakengard 3 crossover appeared in both the Japanese and Global clients of the mobile game. Naturally, a NieR Automata crossover made its way into it. The event originally appeared for the Global release of the game, but was given a re-run some months later.

NieR Reincarnation is an entirely new story set within the world of NieR. Players experience various weapon stories as they traverse The Cage. More than a handful of characters are available to obtain, each with their individual narrative that span across space and time.

NieR Reincarnation is available for Android and iOS devices. The SINoALICE crossover event will arrive on November 10, 2022.

River City Girls 2 Provie Trailer Shows the River City Ransom: Underground Character

The newest River City Girls 2 character trailer is here, and this time it is all about Provie. She first appeared in River City Ransom: Underground. In addition to showing off her gameplay, it also hints that another person from Underground is why she's showing up this time. Namely, Chris gets name-dropped.

The River City Girls 2 Provie trailer begins with the character "talking" to stars Misako and Kiyoko. The duo explain they aren't the enemy. Provie still seems skeptical. She explains that her friend Chris, who leads the Flock group she belongs to, is missing. She believes Ken, one of River City Girls 2's antagonists, kidnapped her. She then teams up with Misako and Kiyoko to achieve their common goals.

After the introduction, it shows how Provie fights in-game. As in River City Ransom: Underground, she's a fast fighter who uses Capoeira-style moves when attacking.

Provie isn't the only newcomer. Another new character showing up in River City Girls 2 is Marian. While she did appear in the first game, it was only as a shopkeeper NPC. This marks the first time she'll be playable in the River City series. She hails from the Double Dragon games.

River City Girls 2 will come to the Nintendo Switch, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and PC on December 1, 2022 in Japan and in 2022 worldwide.

Front Mission 1st: Remake Classic and Modern Gameplay Modes Detailed

The latest Front Mission 1st: Remake details show off what the Classic and Modern gameplay modes will involve and look like. A new trailer went over each one's features. After that, it showed a clip that offered examples of how gameplay differs between the two.

The Classic Front Mission 1st: Remake gameplay will be more traditional. Should someone choose that, they'll only have an orthogonal view of the battlefield. The game will feel like it did when it appeared on the Super Famicom back in 1995. It will also use the original game soundtrack.

The Modern version switches up the camera, perspective, music, and other adjustments. It will offer a perspective view. You will be able to rotate the camera and change the pitch to see the full battlefield. Some gameplay adjustments will be in effect for quality of life changes. For example, you can see movement ranges in the example video. It will also play the remastered soundtrack.

Here's the full tweet showing off Front Mission 1st Remake Classic and Modern gameplay.

The Straw Hats will encounter CP9 and the Franky Family in the One Piece Odyssey retelling of the Water 7 arc.

In One Piece Odyssey, people will visit iconic moments from the series' history via memories. Bandai Namco already confirmed Water 7 will be a part of the story. Now, people can see how that looks. A One Piece Odyssey Water 7 trailer is online.

During the original One Piece Water 7 storyline, the crew headed to Water 7 after an encounter with a Sea Train. The crew went through a number of devastating challenges during this arc, such as the the Going Merry seeming to be damaged beyond repair, the Franky Family stealing money from the crew, and CP9's debut.

Here's the full trailer. It begins by showing Luffy encountering Rob Lucci in his hybrid form. Iceburg, Kaku, and Lim also appear. It also shows off a number of Water 7 locations people might recognize from the One Piece show or anime.

Past trailers looked at some of the other notable places that will appear in One Piece Odyssey. For example, the Alabasta (aka Arabasta) arc also comes up. Another video showed off some of its notable characters and locations in this new adaptation.

One Piece Odyssey will come to the PS4, PS5, Xbox Series X, and PC on January 12, 2023. A limited edition version of the game will be available.

With 10 mainline releases in the span of a decade, the series has sold millions of copies and a fostered a fairly large and enamored community. That said, it's not without its limitations. Though the series has grown steadily with release after release, there are still some fundamental shortcomings even its latest iteration, 2021's Farming Simulator 22. I reviewed the game and enjoyed it quite a bit. Yet, I still had to note some shortcomings, particularly in the department of the sim's fairly antiquated driving mechanics and physics system. Long have I wanted to see Giants step it up to the next level, having pointed to the work that Saber Interactive has done with its MudRunner and SnowRunner projects as great examples.

     The best SP-R 208 loadout in Modern Warfare 2

With the best SP-R 208 loadout for Modern Warfare 2 we're not quite back to the glory days of quickscoping, but it's getting pretty close. While there are plenty of ways to trim the best sniper rifles in Modern Warfare 2 back to their barest forms, we're keeping the long-range scope on our build so it can be used effectively at all ranges. Unless we get a Kar-98k, or something similar, when the Season 1 release date rolls around, this is the best alternative in the FPS game right now.

So, exactly why are Modern Warfare 2 SP-R 208 loadouts so popular right now? The marksman rifle is one of the earliest you unlock in the game, but it's also mighty right out of the box: good iron sights, one-shot kill to the upper body at most ranges, and very fast ADS speeds for a bolt-action rifle. Provided you can land your shots, it's easily one of the best guns in Modern Warfare 2.

     GeForce RTX 4090 GPUs may also be damaging native 16 pin power cables

Nvidia has recently found itself in hot water following controversies surrounding its GeForce RTX 4090 power adapter, the design of which appears to be prone to getting rather warm… to the point of melting both itself and the GPU's power input. While this issue appeared to be limited to team green's bundled cables, the problem may unfortunately be more widespread.

     Sonic Frontiers reviews – our roundup of the critics' scores

The Sonic Frontiers reviews are in, and Sega's latest appears to be somewhat divisive as the hedgehog goes for a full on open-world game for the first time. All these Sonic Frontiers reviews are a big moment for the blue blur, as the core gameplay has moved from 2D to 3D to boost the formula, and now to open-world, which the series will apparently adopt for years going forward.

     Diablo 4 release date speculation and all the latest beta details

Want a roundup of the latest Diablo 4 release date speculation and news? Announced during BlizzCon 2019, the upcoming entry in the demon-slaying action RPG game series has had many different teasers and trailers. These have showcased the various Diablo 4 classes we can use to take on the hordes of monsters that block the way between the horned lord of the underworld and us.

The roster of playable classes includes transforming druids, spell-flinging wizards, and somersaulting rogues. Each class has unique combat skills to weave through every shambling zombie, skittering demon, and colossal terror that awaits you in these dank, hallowed halls. So far, so familiar, but that's hardly going to upset the series' devoted fans. However, despite a relatively open development process, prospective players have been left to speculate when the Diablo 4 release date might be.

     Minecraft tuff golem mob guide

The Minecraft tuff golem was sadly not destined to be added to the sandbox game, losing out to the weirdly-named Sniffer in the 2022 Minecraft Live mob vote. The annual mob vote is easily one of the most hotly anticipated features of the Minecraft Live broadcast, alongside the announcement of the next big Minecraft update. Three mobs go up for vote, and two are forgotten about, sadly never to see the light of day - of which the tuff golem is now one.

During the 2022 livestream, another Minecraft mob was revealed, the Camel, as well as some other features we can expect from the 1.20 Minecraft update in 2023. But while there were some fantastic announcements during Minecraft Live 2022, the tuff golem was not one of them, coming out dead last in the vote. Here's why.

In 2022, the Rascal went up against the tuff golem and the sniffer. While the adorable Minecraft Sniffer beat out the cheeky, underground-dwelling rascal, it was a close second, with the golem coming in last. So what would the rascal have been had it have come out on top?

To be surrounded by Disney Dreamlight Valley animals, you don't have to have a singing voice like Snow White. Instead, just find out what these Dreamlight Valley critters like to eat and keep them well fed. Feed critters enough times, in fact, and you can even turn them into your companion throughout your time in the Disney game.

     Valorant ranks order, distribution, and ranking system explained

Want to know about Valorant ranks and how the ranking system works? Like all competitive FPS games, Riot's Valorant has an ascending ladder of titles to sort the player base by ability. Whether you're starting out as a lowly Iron or maintaining your dominance as a mighty Immortal, if you play Valorant competitively your life is governed by the ranking system.

Valorant has a couple of different ways it measures ranking progress and the overall rating of players against each other. Each player has an overall Valorant rank, but there's also a dedicated 'Act rank' for each act. On top of that, there's also a concept called 'rank rating', which is connected to MMR. Here is everything you need to know about Valorant ranks, the current rank distribution, and competitive play.

The best part, however, is that while the Everest Max sits at the peak of the Mountain range, its modularity creates an increasingly affordable pathway for those that find the full whack a bit too pricey.

     How to get a nuke in Modern Warfare 2

Back in the day, if you got a Modern Warfare 2 nuke, you were the envy of all your friends and foes alike. It required 25 kills without dying, so it was arguably the biggest flex you could pull on everyone else in your lobby in the multiplayer game. As it turns out, nukes are back in the 2022 version of the FPS game, but they're instead known as mass guided bombs, or MGB for short.

Just like before, when you earn an MGB killstreak, it ends the match and your team wins. There's a ten-second countdown warning everyone in the match that the game will be finishing early, and if you look to the sky, you can see the slow moving plane drop the bombs towards the ground.

And it tones down the pace of movement too, making for a measured experience that certainly rewards speed, but doesn't make it an athletics competition.

And while the game's multiplayer is a slick refinement of what's come before, its gun unlock process is messy and excessive, even if it offers plenty of options for all types of player. Oh, and make sure you've got the game installed on an SSD...

A Nintendo Indie World Showcase presentation will appear on November 9, 2022. Both the North American and European Twitter accounts shared the announcement. People will be able to tune in at 9am PT/12pm ET/6pm CET. As usual, Switch indie games will be shown off during the event.

The placeholder page is already live on YouTube. It noted that the November 2022 Indie World Showcase will come in at just under 30 minutes. There's a 25 minute run-time. As usual, this will mean announcements for new games, looks at already announced games, video footage, and perhaps even developer commentary.

This is only the second Nintendo showcase looking at independent developers' titles for 2022. The first one appeared in May 2022. Some of the games that showed up there and had a Fall or Winter 2022 release window included Batora: Lost Haven, A Guidebook of Babel, and Wildfrost. We could also learn more about Hollow Knight: Silksong. As these presentations tend to include shadowdrops, there will also likely be at least two games available immediately following the video presentation.

There won't be any first-party or major releases showing up here, however. Those are reserved for full Nintendo Directs. The last one focusing on games appeared back on September 13, 2022.

MHA Online Game

KLab, developer of Bleach: Brave Souls, announced it acquired the rights to create a new online game based on My Hero Academia. It received the rights from the series' production committee. The rights apply to a full global release, with the exception of mainland China. This effectively confirms that KLab's MHA online game could eventually see wider release, whenever it does show up. [Thanks, 4Gamer!]

Exactly what that MHA online game will turn out to be, however, is unclear. KLab did not mention any concrete details about the game, its target platforms, or release window beyond noting it will be based on My Hero Academia. The company did say that it intends to use its know-how cultivated from operating other IP-based games to ensure an enjoyable experience for fans all over the world.

KLab currently operates Bleach: Brave Souls, a free-to-play game available on Android and iOS devices, PCs, and PS4s. That game surpassed a milestone of 70 million total downloads in the seven years since its release. It also operates Captain Tsubasa: Dream Team and a game based on Love Live. It recently announced a blockchain-based game called Captain Tsubasa - Rivals -. The MHA game announcement did not mention if blockchain technology or NFTs are involved.

Various other My Hero Academia games are currently operating under other publishers and developers. Bandai Namco is set to release a battle royal-style title, My Hero Academia: Ultra Rumble. MHA: The Strongest Hero also launched in late September 2022.

KLab's MHA online game is in development. The My Hero Academia manga is published in English by Viz Media. The anime airs on various streaming services.

There's a new hint that FFXVI will only temporarily be a PlayStation 5 exclusive, thanks to a "Play Like Never Before" PS5 trailer. Sony's video features a clip of the game at the 15 second mark. When footage is shown, it noted a six month exclusivity period. The video also confirmed a Summer 2023 launch window. [Thanks, Wario64!]

Here's a screenshot from the Sony trailer that mentioned FFXVI is a PlayStation 5 exclusive for only six months.
FFXVI is Only a PlayStation 5 Exclusive for 6 Months

And here's the full trailer:

As a reminder, FFXVI wouldn't be the only Square Enix Final Fantasy game to only be a temporary PlayStation exclusive. FFVII Remake was as well. Its period initially lasted a year. When it was about to launch, Square Enix noted it would only be on the PS4 until April 10, 2021. The PS5 FFVII Remake Intergrade version then debuted on June 10, 2021. It showed up on PCs shortly after on December 16, 2021.

This comes after a number of other announcements related to the game. For example, details about the difficulty levels came up. A demo was also confirmed.

Final Fantasy XVI will come to the PlayStation 5 in Summer 2023. We'll find out its release date in 2022. There's no exact release date yet. After it does launch, it could show up on other platforms after the six month exclusivity period is up.

Harvestella Grilla Guide

Grilla is without a doubt one of the most important resources in Harvestella, mostly because that's the equivalent to your standard JRPG currency in the whimsical RPG-farming simulator hybrid. In order to reap the rewards of your harvest, you will need Grilla to buy seeds, upgrades to your humble farm, and even craft better weapons for your excursions into the world at large. This guide will be outlining some ways to consistently and quickly rake in Grilla in Harvestella.

That said, there are a few avenues to acquire Grilla so don't feel locked in to any one method. And make sure to dedicate time to whatever method works best for you!

Harvestella Grilla

Farming and Fishing

Perhaps the most straightforward way of obtaining Grilla is through farming and fishing. Farming is extremely straightforward, but there's a little more to it when min-maxing your profits. Crops will change mostly every season, so make sure to plan according for the upcoming harvest. For example, Carrops can be grown during Spring and Summer, but not in any other season. They also take only one day to grow, which can yield quick profits. But to truly benefit from your harvest, considering buying Cucumbles and every season's equivalent. Cucumbles may cost more, with each seed at 370 Grilla, but the crop can be harvested repeatedly for 200 Grilla a pop. And with each season lasting 30 days, you can quickly recoup the costs and have consistent profit coming in from your crops.

The next method is fishing. You can obtain a fishing pole by purchasing Fishing Knowledge from the General Store for 800 Grilla. Grabbing this early on is ideal, since you can fish in a plethora of locations throughout the world. Your farm, for example, has a single fishing spot that can be used every day which makes for a great way to quickly make Grilla while exploring or just wanting to pass time. It also eats up a small amount of stamina, so it's perfect for those who have just started the game and don't have access to their kitchen yet.

Harvestella Grilla


At a costly 2,000 Grilla investment, you can unlock cooking in Harvestella. It only takes a day after purchasing your kitchen for it to become accessible in your house, but it's more than worth it. Outside of providing a way to make filling food items that will help regenerate stamina, you can sell those cooked dishes for a pretty penny. It isn't the most profitable way to make a quick buck, but if you have access to ingredients on hand, you can quickly make food and sell them alongside your usual choice of crops or fish.

Just remember that cooking meals does make time pass a fair amount if you're whipping up more than one dish. So if you're looking to make the most out of your time farming and fishing will be your best bet.


Dungeons and other areas are available to explore in Harvestella. These areas not only allow you to sometimes pick up valuable cooking ingredients and random seed drops, but enemies can drop items that can be sold for Grilla. This isn't as consistent as farming for example, but is all part of min-maxing since you'll want to head out and fight monsters while you're waiting for your crops to yield valuable produce. So don't forget to leave your farm and explore the great yonder if you have the time!

Harvestella is available for Nintendo Switch and Windows PC.

crisis core reunion

Square Enix revealed more about Crisis Core FFVII Reunion's UI, Materia, and gameplay systems. Via the FFVII Remake Twitter account, the company showed off some of the updated menu design going into the game. It also detailed more about the game's Materia system.

Here's a closer look at the screenshot.
Crisis Core FFVII Reunion Screenshot Shows Materia and Menu Designs

The new Crisis Core FFVII Reunion user interface takes more directly after the aesthetic style and layout used in Final Fantasy VII Remake. It also takes advantage of the extra screen space afforded by home consoles. Artwork of the character is more prominent too. One holdover is the visible Shinra company logo, though, as a reminder of the context of the adventure. Players can also sort and filter materia by their color and type, as well as see their statistical gains at a glance.

Check out a screenshot from the PSP version's menu below, for comparison.

Crisis Core FFVII Reunion Screenshot Shows Materia and Menu Designs

Earlier posts about the user interface in Crisis Core FFVII Reunion highlighted some of the changes to controls enabled by using a traditional console gamepad layout. On the PSP, players didn't have access to a second analog stick, limiting some of the control options. Now that the game's on newer platforms, the camera can be controlled freely. A brief gameplay video posted on Friday highlighted the way this smooths out combat.

The Crisis Core FFVII Reunion Materia system will work similarly to the original game's. Various Materia will unlock different abilities to use in combat, ranging from health-restoring spells to damaging magic. Passive boosts like additional HP are also available, as are new abilities, like a spinning sword attack. Materia Synthesis will also be useful for upgrading Materia and enhancing their effectiveness.

Crisis Core Final Fantasy VII Reunion will launch on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PC, and Nintendo Switch on December 13, 2022.

Final Fantasy XIV VR Mod

Prepare to experience Eorzea through the Warrior of Light's eyes. Team Flat2VR is working on an unofficial virtual reality mod for Square Enix's hit MMORPG. The Final Fantasy XIV VR mod promises to make the game compatible with various headsets.

Flat2VR teased the mod's functionality in a tweet:

The Final Fantasy XIV VR mod is being developed by modders Marulu and Streetrat, who helped create the Half-Life 2 VR mod. That mod altered Valve's 2004 shooter to allow free aiming and full "6 degrees of freedom" movement with VR headsets and motion tracking.

The mod being developed for FFXIV promises similar functionality, including support for use with a first- and third-person camera and the use of motion controls. The trailer shows a player in a VR headset traveling around in the game. They view characters by tilting their head, and even appear to engage in some gameplay, visiting areas from the Heavensward expansion. The teaser shows a floating UI that appears in front of the player and shows their various abilities in the traditional PC-style hotbar arrangement.

The Final Fantasy XIV VR mod is set to enter alpha testing soon. Details on what hardware it will support or its requirements have not been announced.

It should also be noted that Square Enix stated repeatedly that it considers mods to be a violation of FFXIV's terms of service. Though it tends to turn a blind eye towards certain "quality of life" mods like data parsers and graphical tweaks, it has punished streamers caught using them publicly. In essence, mods and third-party tools are things to use at one's own risk, and the VR mod may well fall under that umbrella.

Final Fantasy XIV is available on PS4, PS5, and PC, where it recently received its version 6.28 content patch.

Sword Art Online Film

Sword Art Online's 10th anniversary event brought news of a brand-new Sword Art Online film project in the works.

Aniplex also aired a brief teaser.

The Sword Art Online film project tease itself is very light on concrete information and does not even confirm if the project is animated. The terms used to describe it, though, are telling. They trumpet it as an "entirely new" and "original" feature film. It could even be a hint about a potential live-action production. In 2016, Skydance Media acquired the rights to produce a live action TV series adaptation of Sword Art Online.

This framing could be a hint mean that, whatever the project turns out to be, it won't be connected to the animated Sword Art Online Progressive film adaptations. Of that series, two films have been released: Aria of a Starless Night and Scherzo of a Dark Dusk. Progressive tells a reimagined story of the original Aincrad arc, focusing in greater detail on the earlier adventures of Kirito, Asuna, and other key SAO cast members.

One other Sword Art Online feature film exists, and it's the anime-original Sword Art Online The Movie: Ordinal Scale. Ordinal Scale takes place between the second and third seasons of the anime series (i.e. between the "Phantom Bullet" arc and SAO: Alicization), and follows Kirito and the gang's encounters while playing with the Augma, an augmented-reality device that projects virtual images onto the real world (as opposed to the "full dive" VR they usually employed).

The Sword Art Online anime series are available to view on various streaming and retail platforms. A new Sword Art Online game, Last Recollection is in development for PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and PC.

Sword Art Online: Last Recollection

A new Sword Art Online game is on the way. At Full Dive Continue, a livestream event celebrating the 10th anniversary of the anime, Bandai Namco and Kadokawa announced Sword Art Online: Last Recollection, an action-RPG and a follow-up to 2020's Alicization Lycoris. The game is targeted for release in 2023 on current consoles and PC.

Check out the new Sword Art Online game teaser trailer below.

The Sword Art Online: Last Recollection teaser and official website lay out the premise, which adapts the "War of Underworld" story from the original novels and anime. As in the original story, the virtual environment of Underworld (where Kirito and his pals were trapped during the events of Alicization Lycoris) is on the verge of ruin. The gate between the Human Empire and the Dark Territory is breached, and "Final Load Test" -- a massive invasion intended to test the potential of the A.I. lifeforms living in Underworld -- begins. A new character, a dark knight known as Dorothy, escapes the Dark Territory with Sarai. Dorothy seeks to bring an end to her unchangeable fate, one that leads her to ask what the difference is between the world ending and her dying.

Sword Art Online: Last Recollection will adapt the new events of War of Underworld to the unique, game-original timeline that's persisted through the various Sword Art Online game adaptations. It'll have the largest playable character roster in the franchise so far, and the largest number of story episodes. In addition to new original characters like Dorothy, the trailer and website features characters who played roles in the War for Underworld story, like Shuster (aka Shasta), Lipia, Iskahn, and Dil, leaders of the Dark Territory's armies. Singer ReoNa will once again provide the game's theme song.

Yoshitsugu Matsuoka, who voices Kirito in the anime and games, recorded a video message for fans.

The video featured Matsuoka explaining that the game timeline is different from that of the anime and novels, and that some of the events and characters are also different. Indeed, the taglines for Last Recollection promise that the story will be "new" and explore different outcomes (such as if characters like Kirito and Eugeo were present during events that they weren't there for in the original story).

Sword Art Online: Last Recollection launches on the PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and PC in 2023 in Japan. Overseas release plans have not yet been confirmed. The previous Sword Art Online game, Alicization Lycoris, arrived on Nintendo Switch in 2022, years after becoming available on PS4, Xbox One, and PC.

     Genshin Impact Version 3.2 pity system counter how toGenshin Impact is one of the trendiest gacha games in the market, with stunning character designs and animations that remain popular two years after its launch. Yet as beautiful as the game can be at times, it is still a gacha game at heart and designed to suck money away from your wallet. Naturally, 5-star characters are the most desirable units to pull in the game, which also makes them the most challenging and potentially expensive characters to gain as well. However, Genshin Impact has a "pity system" that guarantees you will earn a 5-star character at a certain point — and here's how to check the counter. With the pity system, players will gain stacks towards this pity counter for every character they pull that is not a 5-star unit. A "soft pity" will hit at around 75 pulls, dramatically increasing the chances of earning a 5-star starting at this point. However, there is a hard cap at 90 pulls, guaranteeing you a shiny new 5-star unit when you r...

     Modern Warfare 2 How To Build The Best Fennec 45 ClassThe Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 launched with a long list of weapons and attachments up for grabs. The Fennec 45 is a relatively easy submachine gun to unlock, as you don't have to go through one of the many weapon trees to get it. All you have to do is reach military rank 38 and it's yours. As soon as you begin levelling up your Fennec 45, you'll unlock all the attachments you need to build the best class in Modern Warfare 2. The Fennec 45 is yet another weapon to make a return from previous iterations, along with the M4 assault rifle, the VEL 46, among others. The Fennec 45 has an impressive fire rate — one of the fastest of any weapon in the game. As a result, you'll be able to shred through the opposition, but its only effective at close range. Therefore, this class will improve accuracy, so you have more chance of getting a kill at medium range. At the same time, mobility will be improved so you can get up close and personal with the gun.   Ca...

     The Unliving PreviewWhen you're bored, you can never go wrong with the rogue-lite genre. If you want a new one to play, there's always an upcoming game lurking around the corner. The Unliving entered Early Access today, with a lot of necromancy and even more attacking, running, and dodging. With so many similar games on the market, you have to wonder – Is The Unliving worth it in Early Access? Unlike a lot of games, The Unliving doesn't have a set timeframe for when it'll leave Early Access. Instead, its developers are treating this version as the base version of the game. When it's done, it's done, but for now you can enjoy around 100 abilities and modifiers, three levels, three main bosses, and 18 enemies. Necromancy is central to the gameplay and narrative of The Unliving. Upon waking up in the game, your character is initially unsure of himself and his power. A mysterious voice goads you into remembering that you aren't just anyone: you're the Necromancer. This opening sequence i...

     Ramattra Origin Story Overwatch 2 1 23 ScreenshotThe Overwatch League finals finished with a bang on October 4, and as promised, a new hero was announced following the conclusion of the final. While fans were expecting the new tank hero to be Mauga, a former cohort of Baptiste, what we got was a complete surprise. Ramattra is the newest tank hero coming to Overwatch 2, and he's an Omnic on the opposite spectrum of Zenyatta. And there are some people thirsting over him, it seems.
