A new Cyberpunk 2077 mod completely overhauls the way the RPG game's armour system works. Normally, V's clothes (and modifiers) are what determine their armour - a jacket might be tougher than a T-shirt, for instance, or a higher-level pair of pants might offer more protection. Modder tduality thinks that's a bit silly, and has created a mod that shifts armour over to V's cybernetic mods.

An update coming this month is making World War Z Aftermath zombie hordes even bigger than they already were. For sheer number of zombies on screen at a time, World War Z already has few competitors - only Days Gone leaps to mind as a possible competitor in undead crowd population. Nevertheless, Saber Interactive has announced that Horde Mode XL is coming to the co-op game January 24, and it'll swell the swarms' sizes to heretofore unseen sizes.

Last month CJ reported that we might see a demo for Forspoken, Square Enix's upcoming action RPG with magic-infused parkour. A demo did indeed come out in December, but only on PS5 - and to very mixed reviews. It's a shame, because the world on show in its latest cinematic trailer looks appetisingly stylish.
The game comes out on January 24th, so we'll know for sure soon enough.

On January 7, 2023, the number of Hololive Vtuber personalities joining the English Holostars Tempus group grew by four, with Gavis Bettel, Banzoin Hakka, Josuiji Shinri, and Machina X Flayon all joining the "guild." While all of their debuts were fairly typical affairs, one really stood out. Flayon's performance kicked off with a comprehensive and detailed animated segment, then followed up with what seemed like one of the best and most accurate teases from what to expect from the new performer.
When any Vtuber's debut stream begins, you typically see a brief segment offering a hint at what to expect from the character. For example, Josuiji Shinri's opening kicked off with a soothing story, establishing the fellow Tempus guild member as a calming presence and showcasing his voice. When it came to Hololive's Machina X Flayon, the Vtuber kicked things off with what was essentially a whirlwind. Consider it a stream of consciousness, brought to life by established artist and fellow Vtuber Kurono Gomi, heralding not only his chaotic energy, but his range. This is due to it jumping from action to drama and comedy, with Machina X Flayon providing all voice acting for the affair. It was stunningly substantial, and that alone would have been a fitting way to introduce the performer to the world.
This led into a more informative, and also hilarious, introduction to Machina x Flayon, and again the Hololive Vtuber's debut involved surprises. The new Tempus member isn't just showing off and performing as himself, but while also using a "mech" known as the R-Trus. Part of this showcase involved looking at perhaps what it is like if "we" are in the robot alongside the guild's "Customer Support" member. He showed us around "Xenokuni," with a surprise "cameo" by Banzoin Hakka. The shifts in perspective were so much fun, really helping establish the character portrayed.
I'd also say Machina X Flayon's initial schedule is a hint at his potential too. There's a level of variety there that you might not expect from a newcomer. Instead of going with some big name titles like Gavis Bettel, counting on games like Fall Guys and Phasmophobia to bring people in even if they might not be convinced about him yet, he went with the indie horror adventure Angels of Death, the Japanese minigame Kuukiyomi, the mech action game Daemon x Machina, the hilarious and notorious otome visual novel Hatoful Boyfriend, and Mega Man Zero 1. Based on the likes presented in his debut stream, it feels like Machina X Flayon is showing us who he is and playing games he enjoys and loves. Not to mention there is a karaoke stream on January 16, 2023, to further display his range.
Another thing that makes following along with Hololive Vtubers and groups like Tempus is witnessing the Interactions with other members. Even before he debuted, Machina X Flayon was playing well alongside and off of his contemporaries. He gave Gavis Bettel vocal warm-up advice, with some of it being genuinely helpful! He tormented/treated Banzoin Hakka to his mellifluous voice. He dealt with Magni Dezmond's advances.
Genuinely, every new Hololive Tempus Vtuber went out as they joined the ranks of the Holostars. Gavis Bettel followed his debut with a great surprise showing his comedic range. Banzoin Hakka released the original song "Raven's Paradigm." Leaning in to the jokes, Josuiji Shinri performed a cover of "Daddy Daddy Do!" But after seeing the range Machina X Flayon displayed, he's someone people may want to pay extra attention to as the weeks and months go by.

With Final Fantasy XIV Patch 6.3 upon us, Square Enix has released the gender lock on several items. This includes the FFXIV Valentione and Songbird attire. However, while the outfits are available to obtain on the online store, there is another way players can get these outfits entirely for free. However, there are some stipulations.
Like with any FFXIV seasonal attire, the Valentione and Songbird outfits can be purchased in-game if players have completed that year's seasonal quest. This potentially circumvents players from having to re-purchase the outfits from real money through the FFXIV Online Store. To check if you can get both outfit variants entirely for free, you only need to do the following:
This also goes for any previous seasonal event rewards, with the exception of housing items, food items, and mounts. So if you've accidentally thrown any of these items away, or want to purchase the other variant once gender locks are removed, you can do so. However, please keep in mind that this is character specific. If you have not cleared the event on the character you're looking to get the items on, you'll have to get them through the online store.
Final Fantasy XIV is available for the PS4, PS5, and PC.

Developer KeokeN Interactive's upcoming sci-fi game Deliver Us Mars will soon see a release on February 2. To prepare players for that date, the developer put together a mostly cinematic trailer that gives a small taste of the grand locations and narrative featured in Deliver Us Mars. Dubbed the "Countdown to Launch Trailer," it condenses all of this imagery and drama into less than one minute, complete with a few small snippets of gameplay. For those who don't know, Deliver Us Mars serves as a sequel to 2019's Deliver Us The Moon, taking place 10 years after that game's events. Players assume the role of Kathy Johanson, an astronaut sent on a mission to recover the ARK vessels on Mars. These colony ships house technologies powerful enough to reverse the effects of climate change, an especially urgent goal considering the Earth's rapid atmospheric deterioration. As she embarks on this mission, however, Kathy has to consider "the pos...

In September, the immensely popular YouTube personality videogamedunkey revealed his new publishing label: Bigmode Games. Considering Dunkey built his YouTube career primarily on comedic gaming videos, this move came as quite a surprise. Fans eagerly waited for the reveal of his publisher's first big game, which he finally provided yesterday in his "Dunkey's Best of 2022" video. As it turns out, Dunkey has chosen to publish Animal Well, an atmospheric Metroidvania with 2D pixel art and a heavy focus on puzzle solving. Developer Shared Memory actually unveiled this game in February 2022, but Dunkey's publisher label should give it quite a bit of extra attention. In Animal Well, players control a tiny round blob thing as they roam around an expansive labyrinth basked in darkness. Within this labyrinth lies numerous animals and creatures both big and small. While many of these creatures add a sense of beauty and wonder to the world, they can often pose a ser...

OBS Studio has just received its latest official update. Version 29.0 brings plenty of new features to OBS Studio, with one in particular that could make a massive difference for some users. The update has been in beta testing for a little while, but this stable version is now available to all users. The biggest inclusion with OBS Studio 29.0 is support for AV1 encoding with AMD and Intel GPUs. Nvidia GPUs already received this upgrade with OBS Studio 28.1, but now all three GPU brands are supported. For those who don't know, AV1 encoding is much more efficient than other encoding methods. It allows for high-quality videos that are almost indistinguishable from other encoders while keeping file sizes small. The most exciting application for AV1 would be for live streaming as it allows for higher-quality video. The problem is that services like Twitch and YouTube don't support AV1 just yet. So, for now, we're stuck with the H.264 encoder. There's another aspect o...
