Academy Award winner Al Pacino may have opened the 2022 Game Awards, a night of industry recognition and expensive marketing for the biggest games around, but it was a new type of internet celebrity who closed it out. "I want to nominate this award to my reformed Orthodox Rabbi Bill Clinton," said a young kid with…

Call of Duty Warzone 2.0 players are about to get what they wanted…sort of. The red-hot online shooter is getting Combat Records with its Season 01 Reloaded midseason update, which will go live December 14. Sounds good. But the catch is, it's starting fresh: no information from the games you completed before that date…

Two days ago, in the days leading up to The Game Awards 2022, I wrote about how the wildly inconsistent fashion at the event was indicative of the industry's identity crisis. Things quickly got out of hand.

Destiny 2's season 19 dungeon, Spire of the Watcher, pits Guardians against the Vex on Mars, returning them to one of the planets that was vaulted in the FPS game's 2020 content overhaul. In the dungeon, players must prevent the Vex from accessing technology systems deep within a bunker, which they aim to use to gain control of the AI Warmind Rasputin's submind data. The dungeon culminates in a fight against Persys, Primordial Ruin, a giant Vex Wyvern.
Mars is home to several Clovis Bray facilities, and it's where Ana Bray initially found Rasputin and attempted to recruit the Warmind to aid in the fight for humanity. Destiny 2 season 19's storyline focuses on Bray's efforts to revive Rasputin from its current state as it exists in an engram, potentially making it an unstoppable force in the fight for the Light.

Amazon Basics have produced some great computer gear in their history - memorably, once selling a full-size mechanical keyboard for £23 that I reviewed and found surprisingly good value for money. Today though, it's something different: an Amazon Basics branded Micro SD card in a 256GB capacity, selling for just £15.67 rather than its UK RRP of £26.99.
Here's what I've learned about the card, and why I reckon it's worth picking up if you're in need for a memory card for your Steam Deck, Switch or whatever.

Logitech's MX Master line of office-friendly, gaming-capable mice are normally quite premium propositions. However, today on Amazon UK the recent MX Master 2S is on sale for only £40, around a £25 reduction from its usual price point. This is a good deal for a mouse loved for its high-tech scroll wheel, wide and comfortable shape and long-ass battery life.

Some men just want to watch the world burn, and that includes me. The Devil's Moon event for excellent cowboy swamp simulator Hunt Showdown kicks off on December 14th, no doubt sending players off to squish environmental objects for points that unlock new weapons and cosmetics in the manner of previous events. This one is different, though, in that it also introduces a "wildcard condition" called Inferno that sets large swathes of the map on fire. It is dramatic. Come see.

There will be clothing customization options in Fire Emblem Engage for everyone in your party, as well as amiibo support. However, it appears that your customization settings will only appear when they are in Somniel. Somniel will be Fire Emblem Engage's main hub where you prepare for battle or interact with your army.
In Somniel, you can go to the accessory shop to make clothes and accessories for your characters. In order to buy one, you need to offer both gold and accessories. However, once you make an accessory, it's available for everyone in your army. The Fire Emblem Japanese Twitter account noted that there are some exceptions to this rule. As you progress through the story, you will unlock more accessories to make.
The last game before Fire Emblem Engage to have outfit customization was Fire Emblem Fates. You could wear the changes into battle in that game, though. If you participated in castle battles, accessories would increase the damage a character deals or reduce damage a character takes. It is unknown if a similar mechanic will exist in Fire Emblem Engage.
As for the amiibo support, you can amiibos to access the outfits of past characters, as well as songs from previous Fire Emblem titles, in Engage. In the video, Alear wore the outfits of Lucina (Fire Emblem Awakening) and Micaiah (Fire Emblem Radiant Dawn). You have to exchange tickets for the outfits and tracks.
Fire Emblem Engage is in development for the Nintendo Switch and it will come out on January 20, 2023. During The Game Awards 2022, we got a look at some of the DLC that will be in the game, which includes the three main characters from Fire Emblem Three Houses.

Faruzan is the newest Genshin Impact four-star and the good news is, all of her ascension and Talent materials are really easy to come by! Odds are, you might even have the ones you'd gather from the environment or find as enemy drops. Still, it's always good to get that information organized. So, if you're building up this Anemo archer, here are all the things you need to pick up for her.
What are the Faruzan Ascension Materials in Genshin Impact?
Essentially, there are three things you might need to go out of your way to get for Faruzan. One is the Henna Berry. This is a kind of berry that appears in plants in the Sumeru deserts. So if you head past the rainforest and go toward the pyramids and sandy spaces to the east, it is incredibly common. People already marked its locations on the interactive Genshin Impact map. You need 168 total.
Faruzan also needs the red fabric items. These are Eremite enemy drops. Again, Eremites can be found all throughout Sumeru. They are very likely to drop Faded Red Satin and Trimmed Red Silk, though you might need to perform some alchemy to get the Rich Red Brocades depending on your world level. You need 18 Faded Red Satin, 30 Trimmed Red Silk, and 36 Rich Red Brocade.
The other item you need is the Light Guiding Tetrahedron. This is a drop from the Sumeru desert's Light Guiding Tetrahedron Normal Boss. It is in the pyramid to in the most Southwest corner of the map. 46 of these are needed. You'll also probably get the Vayuda 1 Turquoise Sliver, 9 Vayuda Turquoise Fragments, 9 Vayuda Turquoise Chunks, and 6 Vayuda Turquoise Gemstones while acquiring those. (If you need more of those gems, other bosses like Anemo Hypostasis, Maguu Kenki, and Stormterror drop those too.)
Finally, you need money. It takes 420,000 Mora to completely ascend Faruzan.
What are the Faruzan Talent Materials in Genshin Impact?
Again, getting Faruzan to her very best isn't too difficult!
Genshin Impact is available for the PS4, PS5, PC, and mobile devices, and Faruzan is now permanently available as a four-star via the gacha.

Following the reveal of multiple Chainsaw Man figures, there are now release windows for the Kobeni Nendoroid and Power figma. Kobeni will show up in July 2023 in Japan and September 2023 in North America. She'll cost ¥5,900/$41.99. Power will debut in August 2023 in Japan and October 2023 in North America. She costs ¥9,800/$68.99.
Kobeni is wearing her public safety devil hunter uniform and comes with a number of face plates that cover her range of emotions. One is slightly smiling, another is anxious, and the third one shows her crying. She also comes with a knife and gun she can wield.
[gallery columns="5" link="file" size="full" ids="942882,942883,942884,942885,942886"]
The Power figma features the character in her more relaxed take on the uniform. She has face plates showing her smiling, shouting, and upset. Her cat Meowy comes with her, in a pose that lets her hug them. She also can wield a large hammer, small hammer, or pair of knives.
[gallery columns="8" size="full" ids="942887,942888,942889,942890,942891,942892,942893,942894" link="file"]
The Chainsaw Man Kobeni Nendoroid will come to Japan in July 2023, followed by the Power figma figure in August 2023. Kobeni will appear in North America in September 2023, and Power will follow in October 2023. Kobeni pre-orders are only open until January 19, 2023, while Power can be pre-ordered until February 2, 2023.

Dragon Quest Treasures is here and, while it isn't an entry in the Monsters spin-off series, it definitely features some of those elements. Namely, you spend quite a bit of time scouting enemies to turn into your allies. It got us thinking about characters throughout the series. So today, let's share the ones we feel are the best Dragon Quest monsters.
As someone with a fairly entry-level knowledge of the series, I'll take the easiest option and state that the best monster in Dragon Quest is the humble Slime series. They're easy fodder for any beginner adventurer, and they look so silly with their blank expressions. There is not a single thought behind those eyes, and I love them for it. — Stephanie
Slimes are awesome, and honestly the #1 correct answer when it comes to conversations about which Dragon Quest monster rules the heap. That said, I do have a special place in my heart for the Scarewolf, and its pun-tastic buddies the Bewarewolf and the Tearwolf. From their silly names to their goofy tunics to their "Rrrar, gonna getcha!" poses and goofy Scooby-doo faces, they're emblematic of the joyful, silly spirit behind Dragon Quest creature design. Love 'em! — Josh
I'd say Rocket Slime, but the question was "best Dragon Quest monster" and not "best Dragon Quest hero." So instead, my answer is Liquid Metal Slime. For one? Experience is great, and metal slimes give you a lot of it. But perhaps most important? The little pal got its own hardware! It's honestly pretty slick-looking, if you ask me. And reminding me of cool Japanese 2DS and 3DS variants is more than enough to top my list. — Graham
I hate how the Chimaera line looks in Dragon Quest, but it always tends to become one of my most practical and best monsters. I used one in Dragon Quest Builders 2 to take to the sky. The same goes for Dragon Quest Treasures. They usually use some decent magic spells. Not to mention without the humble Chimaera, we wouldn't have all those Chimaera Wings to help us quickly fly to safety! — Jenni

You're likely wondering where to find the Shockwave Hammer in Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 1 if you've seen what it can do. Players can use it to soar across the map, demolish structures, and damage enemies with crushing effect. It's easily one of the best new weapons in Fortnite, and this guide will help you learn where to get it as quick as possible. For the time being, you should absolutely have the Shockwave Hammer in your inventory due to it being at the top of the meta. Fortunately, finding a Shockwave Hammer shouldn't be that difficult if you know where to look. Your best bet is to open the Oathbound chests located around the map. Looting these large, ornate chests commonly rewards Shockwave Hammers. You can also find Shockwave Hammers in normal and Epic chests, though far less often. There's even the chance of happening upon a Shockwave Hammer as floor loot, though it is rare. More ways to find Shockwave Hammers in Fortnite If you'd fancy a batt...
