Several games have attempted to successfully marry first-person shooting with real-time strateging, and to my mind none have quite succeeded. Outpost: Infinity Siege, at the very least, understands why the ambition its worthwhile.

Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot once said that Tom Clancy's The Division 2 being absent from Steam was "a long-term positive". Perhaps he meant that only in the sense that, long-term, the game would come to Steam anyway. That's what has happened now. As announced late last year, the open world cover shooter is now available on Steam after a period of Epic and Ubisoft store exclusivity.

Hisashi from Glay will appear on the 61st episode of the Genshin Impact Teyvat radio show. If you wish to submit a letter, you can do so at the official site. Episode 61 will air on January 24, 2023. He will be joining the usual main radio personalities Shun Horie, Aoi Koga, and Tomoaki Maeno.
For reference, Horie and Koga are the Japanese voices of the male Traveler (Aether) and Paimon, respectively. Meanwhile, Maeno voices Zhongli in the Japanese dub of Genshin Impact. As for Hisashi, he is the lead guitarist of the rock band Glay. Glay is an incredibly popular band and is one of the best-selling artists of all time in Japan. Series that use songs from Glay as their theme songs include Kuromukuro and Ace of Diamond.
As for why Hisashi will appear on the Genshin Impact radio show, it is likely to do with the fact that he is famously a huge fan of the game. For example, he brought it up on national TV once. He has also given his opinion on the best tourist sites in Teyvat in a guidebook for Genshin Impact. Other people who provided answers for the book include Ayumu Murase (Venti), Kana Ueda (Yoimiya), and Ryouhei Kimura (Tartaglia). All three are not only voice actors for the Japanese dub, but avid Genshin players themselves.
Hisashi of Glay will appear on the Genshin Impact radio show on January 24, 2023. Genshin Impact is readily available on the PS4, PS5, Windows PC, and mobile devices. Version 3.4 will go live on January 18, 2023.

For the 6th anniversary of Yu-Gi-Oh Duel Links, Konami is going to have a celebration campaign that includes a Legendary Foil Rarity Mirror Force card. There is also a new activation animation that will play when you use Mirror Force. There are lots of other items that you can receive when you log into the game as well.
Mirror Force is an iconic card that has been in the Yu-Gi-Oh franchise ever since Duel Monsters. It is a Trap card that allows you to destroy every face-up Attack Position Monster your opponent has when their Monster declares an attack. Though Mirror Force is the original, there have been several Mirror Force-like cards that have come out over the past years. For example, Storming Mirror Force returns all Attack Position Monsters to the hand. Meanwhile, Dark Mirror Force banishes all of your opponent's Defense Position Monsters.
Other than Mirror Force, the 6th Anniversary Campaign items you can get in Yu-Gi-Oh Duel Links are:
You will get a Ticket per day over the course of eight days.
Yu-Gi-Oh Duel Links is a free-to-play Yu-Gi-Oh game that originally came out in 2016 before its 2017 worldwide release. It features characters from almost every series in the Yu-Gi-Oh anime. As well, it utilizes Speed Duel rules, which limits how many Zones there are and how many cards you can have in your deck.
Yu-Gi-Oh Duel Links is readily available on mobile devices and Windows PC, and the 6th Anniversary Campaign started today.

Taito's Spiritale revealed the prototype for a new Bridget figure from Guilty Gear Strive. The company unveiled a work-in-progress image of the prototype through the official Twitter account. There is no confirmation on a release date or price for the figure.
This new Bridget figure matches the appearance of the character in Guilty Gear Strive, down to sharing the same pose as her official key art. In the picture shared by Spiritale, she's seen carrying Roger. That is her mechanized teddy bear that houses the spirit of a ghost, who also happens to be her weapon of choice.
You can get a better look at the Spiritale Guilty Gear Strive Bridget prototype figure below:

In other Guilty Gear Strive news, the game included the option for cross-play in a patch released on December 15, 2022. Since the release of the patch, players on PS4, PS5, or PC can play together. The option for cross-play is on by default, but players can manually turn the option off in their settings if they want to opt out of it. Sin Kiske is the second character in the Season Pass 2 DLC of the game, released in November 24, 2022.
Guilty Gear Strive is available for the PS4, PS5, and PC. Xbox One and Xbox Series X versions are currently in development.

PS4 owners will soon have the opportunity to serve an otherworldly figure some bingsu. Koumajou Remilia Scarlet Symphony publisher CFK announced that Miracle Snack Shop, a romance adventure game developed by Korea-based TALESshop is coming to PlayStation 4. It's also coming soon, on January 26, 2023. The game was first launched on PC in 2018, and then on the Nintendo Switch in 2021.
The Miracle Snack Shop trailer features Japanese voice acting, which is exclusive to the console editions of the game. The PC edition includes only Korean-language voice acting, while the console editions (both Switch and upcoming PS4) will include both. All versions support Korean, Japanese, and English text. In Japanese, heroine Philia is played by Marie Miyake, who also plays Nana Abe in Idolm@ster Cinderella Girls, Reishi in Interspecies Reviewers, and Ringo in Mawaru Penguindrum. Second heroine Mira is played in Japanese by Mai Ishihara, who played Orange Pekoe in Girls und Panzer, and Natsume in Witch Craft Works.
In Miracle Snack Shop, the player comes to manage their very own snack shop, specializing in shaved ice desserts. Unfortunately, business is pretty dead, until one day a portal to another world opens. Through it steps an otherworldly woman. Philia, monarch of an icy realm and revered as "Queen Salt," discovered a portal to Earth in her closet, and after being served some frozen treats, decides to make a visit to the snack shop a weekly affair. Meanwhile Mira, a famed online influencer, visits to present the player with a business opportunity. As players improve their skills in the kitchen and improve the shop's prospects in the management office, they'll grow closer and closer to the heroines.
Check out the announcement trailer below.
Miracle Snack Shop arrives on PS4 on January 26, 2023. It is currently available on PC and Nintendo Switch.

Back on January 7, 2023, Niantic announced Kecleon is now in Pokemon GO. However, it didn't initially reveal how someone might get one. Especially since, with its debut, people might be able to get a medal for finding Pokemon from Hoenn. It was a few days later that it confirmed in a video that it's been hiding in marketing for a bit on Poke Stops in official images. However, it can take some time to finally get one. That's because if you're trying to figure out how to catch a Kecleon, you'll first probably need to visit lots of Pokemon GO Poke Stops.
How to Catch Kecleon in Pokemon GO
As Niantic's teasing suggests, the Kecleon's natural habitat in the game is Poke Stops. To find one, you need to visit them. When you tap one to spin its disc, there is a chance you will see the transparent Kecleon there. You can't spin the disc while one is on it. Instead, you need to touch the Pokemon. Once you do, it will stop being transparent and hop off.
What you then need to do is be immediately near the Poke Stop and exit to the map. When you do, the Kecleon will be standing next to it if you are right there. You can then touch it as you would any other Pokemon to start the encounter. This doesn't guarantee you will catch it, as it could still flee the battle like any other Pokemon.
Pokemon GO is available for Android and Apple iOS devices. In February 2023, the Community Day will involve lots of Noibats.

While FromSoftware's made some pretty great strides in getting its Souls series on the Switch, Elden Ring and every title like it just can't run on it. But, as you can probably tell from how prolific the games are and their popularity, there are similar sorts of games there! The whole Soulslike genre exists because of the developer's work. So, while that one game might not appear, there are a number of similar sorts of experiences to play.
Games like Elden Ring on the Switch from FromSoftware.
If you want to stick with FromSoftware, which is a great idea as who else is going to do a Soulslike best, then you only get one option. Dark Souls Remastered is available on the Switch and is probably as close to an Elden Ring experience as you'll get. Its normal price is $39.99, but it often goes on sale.
Possible Games like Elden Ring on the Switch from Another Major Developer/Publisher
This might be a bit of a stretch, but perhaps give The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild a try? There aren't the massive fights against memorable sorts of bosses, but the Ganon boss fights inside the Divine Beasts and in Hyrule Castle and more minor fights against the Hinox and Talus enemies can be challenging. It does offer the same sort of open world as Elden Ring, as well as a sense of purpose and drive to do things right. Plus, Link can use an array of different sorts of weapons in this entry, like axes, swords, hammers, and spears. It tends to cost $59.99, though you can sometimes get a physical copy for $39.99.
Games like Elden Ring on the Switch from Indie Creators
Well first, there's a really recent indie release on the Switch that might feel like Elden Ring in some ways. Mortal Shell showed up as part of the Inside the House of Indies 2022 Holiday Event that saw shadowdrops and announcements over the course of seven days. It is a soulslike that involves stepping into the bodies of dead warriors to use as your own as you face devastating monsters. The Switch version is a Complete Edition that costs $29.99.
Also, while it isn't a 3D game and exactly like Elden Ring, Salt & Sanctuary is a Soulslike with a similar ambiance. It is a 2D affair with the same sort of aesthetic, multiple weapon types, dire circumstances abound, knowing when to dodge and counter can save your life, and enemies can be huge, intimidating foes. It normally costs $17.99.
While perhaps not as exact, you could also check out Hollow Knight and Ender Lilies: Quietus of the Knights. Those possess similar vibes, but with Metroidvania tendencies.

Nintendo released more information on the next Tera Raids battles that will be available in January and February 2023 for Pokemon Scarlet & Violet, including a Valentine's Day Event. It will feature Tandemaus Tera Raids. The announcement also teased the next entry in the Unrivaled series. It will involve a character that is a Poison Tera Type. [Thanks, Inside!]
The new Valentine's Day Tera Raid Battle event in Pokemon Scarlet & Violet sees players face against Tandemaus, the Couple Pokemon. It will have a random Tera Type. The Valentine's Day Event will run through February 13-15, 2023. This Pokemon can evolve into Maushold, which normally evolves into the Family of Four form, but has a 1/100 chance to be a Family of Three. The Tandemaus can be found in the wild in-game or in Tera Raids outside this event.
Nintendo also teased the next Pokemon in the Unrivaled series of 7-star Pokemon Scarlet and Violet Tera Raid battles. The company confirmed Poison will be its Tera Type. The third one will run through January 27-29, 2023, and again through February 10-12, 2023. The previous Unrivaled Tera Raids so far have been Dragon Tera Type Charizard and Fighting Tera Type Cinderace. Players still have a chance to fight and obtain Unrivaled Cinderace until January 15, 2023.
Pokemon Scarlet and Violet are immediately available on the Nintendo Switch.

The next Chainsaw Man Power figure from Good Smile Company doesn't tap into established appearances for its design. Orders just opened for the Power Bunny Ver figure on the company's official site. She will show up in July 2023 in Japan first for ¥39,600. Then in September 2023, people in North America can get her for $286.99.
This is a static, 1/4th scale figure. She's expected to be almost 20 inches tall. However, it seems some of that is attributed to her ears, which appear behind her trademark horns. As is common with these kinds of Good Smile Company figures, the fishnets are made of actual fabric.
[gallery columns="2" size="full" link="file" ids="946732,946731"]
Power isn't the only member of the Chainsaw Man cast to get a figure like this. There is also one of Makima in development. There's no word on when that one will appear. However, the product page for Power did show a photo of the two of them together. As the Makima prototype in that picture is painted, it could show up around the same time. It also looks like they will both be about the same height.
The Chainsaw Man Power Bunny Ver figure will appear in Japan in July 2023 and North America in September 2023. Pre-orders are open until March 9, 2023. The anime is available to stream on Crunchyroll, while Viz Media is handling the English localization of the manga.

As you try to stay alive in the harsh world of Stranded Deep, you may become poisoned at some point. You may try desperately to find a cure as the poison whittles you down, but inevitably come up short without knowing exactly what to do. Upon succumbing to the poison, players will undoubtedly wonder how they could have circumvented this seemingly unavoidable situation. Fortunately, Stranded Deep does allow you to cure poison through a craftable antidote item, although making one requires a bit of setup. This guide will show what you need to do to get a hold of this antidote. Newcomers to Stranded Deep may grow peeved to learn that the game does not let you craft an antidote during the early hours of your playthrough. Doing so requires that you reach Craftsmanship Level 3 first, at which point you can find a Pipi plant and a coconut flask to combine into an antidote. You can spot one or two Pipi plants, which appear as small yellowish-green-leafed plants, placed somewhere on the gro...
