For over 30 years the Antonov An-225 Mriya was the world's biggest airplane, a colossal vehicle that was 84 m (275 feet) long and weighed 190 tonnes, but which could still somehow not just get itself into the air, but carry loads of other stuff inside it while doing it.

Valentine's day, the corporate holiday of love, has a lot of folks fiending to get with the person they adore. However, oftentimes cupid's arrow happens to land on people who just make each other worse (and not in the fun kinky way). No medium serves up a hearty helping of such toxic couples quite like anime.

The Dead Space schematic locations are easily missed, especially during your first playthrough when you're unfamiliar with the dark corners of the Ishimura. Early on in your time on board the enormous mining vessel, you'll be forced to scavenge for supplies located in the environment. However, once found, Dead Space schematics can be brought back to the store, making essential items available to purchase at any time from the store.
It's worth mentioning that this list of Dead Space schematic locations doesn't include the ones for Dead Space weapon upgrades and suit upgrades, as we have separate guides for those. Instead, these schematics relate to more general supplies (such as ammunition and health packs) that can make all the difference when going up against the Dead Space leviathan and other fearsome necromorphs in one of the best PC games of 2023.

Can I tell you a secret? I'm terrible at Battle Brothers. I'm still terrible at Battle Brothers, even after playing it on and off for a few years. It's a bit like Blood Bowl, oddly, in that it's all about mitigating risks. And like Blood Bowl, despite having a decent head for tactics and planning on the fly, I am hopeless at sticking to them when I see a new idea, thus: terrible. At it.
But since an update last March looks likely to be its last big one, it's about time to get over myself and gave it a proper look as a complete package. It's long overdue, in fact. Although I still struggle to fully enjoy it, Battle Brothers is an unusually good tactical game, and the one to beat for the burgeoning subgenre of mercenary management sims. That's partly because it sticks so resolutely to its guns. Where Bannerlord faltered by throwing extraneous stuff unrelated to the core combat that should have defined it, and other open world games typically take a varied but shallow "do and be everything" approach, Battle Brothers resists dilution of that core concept.

Alfred is one of the first characters you meet in Fire Emblem Engage and, well, the first time I met him I wasn't impressed! He didn't seem like a bad kid, to be fair. He just seemed so overly enthusiastic. He, like the twins Clanne and Framme, emphasized how he kept visiting. He seemed overly desperate in some ways, both with regards to activities and relationships. However, it's only after completing certain Fire Emblem Engage support conversation lines and beating the game that I realized just how good Alfred secretly is.
Editor's Note: There will be Fire Emblem Engage spoilers for Alfred and other characters below.
In many ways, early on Intelligent Systems is trying to impart how important Alfred is in Fire Emblem Engage. He consistently supports Alear. Even from the very beginning, he has your back. When things turn dire, your background is called into question, and the truth behind the Fell Dragon Sombron and his children comes out, he never hesitates. The developers also seem to make a concentrated effort to show how Alfred is always hustling. He's constantly training. He can speak with other Fire Emblem Engage characters who are members of the royal families, with some of those Support conversations getting into diplomacy and future plans. He's trying to do all he can for Alear particularly. He's too active. Too overburdened. Too nice.
And then, if you go through the Alfred and Celine Fire Emblem Engage Support conversation or pay attention to her chats with Fogado, it hits you. Something is wrong with Alfred. But even so, he's still fighting on the front lines for his family, his friends, his kingdom, and the world.
It isn't just that. Intelligent Systems could have left us with those crumbs and left us wondering if he'll be fine once the war is over and he can recover and relax. But Fire Emblem games have a habit of showing "what happened next" for characters after the ending, and Engage is no exception. That's when the gut punch comes. Alfred dies. Young. Even though he achieves his goals, he doesn't really get the time to enjoy them. The only way to "save" Alfred in Fire Emblem Engage and get him a happier end is to have Alear enter into an S-Rank relationship with him.
This revelation adds so much more weight to all of Alfred's other actions and interactions in Fire Emblem Engage. Of course he'd idolize Boucheron, who is incredibly strong and healthy. Yes, he'd be constantly training, in the hopes of staying as fit as possible. Absolutely, Alfred would go out of his way often to try and make Alear's life better or spend time with people, because he wants to leave good impressions and memories behind. Alfred is making the most of what he has. He is appreciating what he can do while he can. He's doing what he can to leave his mark.
I'd also say the revelation is especially shocking if you weren't paying as much attention due to how many characters there are in Fire Emblem Engage. The idea of him being ill when he was young isn't thrust in people's faces. The unit's stats don't hint at it. He's perfectly energetic and fine in pretty much every Support conversation. I didn't see his A-rank conversation with Celine before the ending, only hers with Fogado, so I figured he completely recovered. It just hit me, and I didn't expect it. But then, I also appreciate that it was a more subtle reveal and doesn't even start to come up unless people get close to the Firene royal family.
In short, there's more to Alfred than people might expect. They only will get to know that if they take the time to get to know him. If they do, they'll get that foreshadowing and further insight into his character. They'll know more about what drives him to be who he is. And, if they go through Fire Emblem Engage a second time, they might start looking to see if there are clues that hinted at his condition and story arc sooner.
Fire Emblem Engage is available for the Nintendo Switch.

More video game shirts are heading to Uniqlo, courtesy of a Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) collection. In early March 2023, five will appear. All of them are tied to games like Katamari Damacy and SimCity, while still referencing the museum. Each one will cost $19.90. [Thanks, Keita Takahashi!]
Here's the full list of video game MoMA Uniqlo shirts that will be available. Each one will be available in sizes XXS through XXXL. They are all going to be 100% cotton. Not to mention all five are unisex designs.
Here's a closer look at every shirt. The Katamari Damacy shirt with the Prince rolling up art supplies, SimCity one, and Pac-Man design with a MoMA maze all feature designs on the front and the games' logos on the back. The Space Invaders and Tetris ones feature game logos on the front and MoMA-related designs on the back.
Uniqlo frequently releases shirts tied to other properties. Ones inspired by shows, animes, and video games often appear. For example, it will be bringing back its "Big Three" shirts inspired by Bleach, Naruto, and One Piece.
The MoMA video game shirts will show up at Uniqlo in early March 2023 in Japan and North America.

People will see double with the latest Good Smile Company Re:Zero Rem figure. It announced an S-Fire Rem that features her holding herself as a child. It will come to Japan in September 2023. The North American release will follow in November 2023. It will cost ¥22,000/$163.99.
Both outfits are period-accurate in this 1/7th scale figure. The adult version of Rem is wearing her normal maid uniform. Meanwhile, the child version of her self is wearing the same kimono she did in the Oni village where she grew up. It will be about nine inches tall. Also, as an S-Fire figure, it is designed to look both "vibrant" and realistic.
Here's a closer look at Rem and... Rem.
Rem, as well as her twin sister Ram, is a common subject when it comes to figures of characters from the series. There are SD figures, for example. Nendoroid and Nendoroid Dolls also showed up. There are also life-size figures of her in a maid uniform or kimono.
The Re:Zero figure of Rem holding a child version of herself will appear in September 2023 in Japan and November 2023 in North America. Pre-orders are open until March 23, 2023. The Re:Zero -Starting Life in Another World- anime is available on Crunchyroll, while Yen Press handled the light novel and manga adaptations.

Udon Entertainment announced it will release a one-shot Darkstalkers: Felicia comic. Tom Seeley is writing and Tovio Rogers is drawing the issue. It will appear in April 26, 2023. There will be six different cover options for it available, with two being Udon exclusives.
Some vague details about this Darkstalkers comic also came out. These hint at some of the other characters who will appear in the 32-page issue. Felicia is apparently trying to prove her "lycanthropic best friend" is innocent of a crime. This could be referring to Jon Talbain, who is a werewolf who appeared throughout the series. However, she doesn't have unlimited time to do so. Udon noted "a certain gun-toting red-hooded girl" is after Felicia's friend. This seems to very obviously reference Baby Bonnie Hood.
As usual, Udon will offer multiple Darkstalkers: Felicia covers. Here's the full list of the other options, as well as their artists and prices. The Reiq covers will only be available through Udon..
And here's how all six of those will look.
This isn't the only Darkstalkers comic from Udon. For example, it did a story focusing on Morrigan as well.

There's a new Kirby's Return to Dream Land Deluxe trailer, and it focuses entirely on the Subgames, minigames that appear in Merry Magoland. These are brief diversions hosted in a park run by Manager Magolor. These can be played by up to four people. However, as usual, a Nintendo Switch Online account is required for online multiplayer.
Here's the full "Welcome to Merry Magoland" Kirby's Return to Dream Land Deluxe trailer. It begins by showing the park and introducing Manager Magolor. He brings up a Stamp Rally, with people able to earn them by playing. Each of the Subgames are highlighted in the video. Eight of them return from the original Wii version of the game. For example, the Samurai Kirby and Ninja Dojo both return. So does Scope Shot. People can also have Magolor act as a guide and take them on a Tour through certain minigames. The one used as an example sees Kirby on the Draw, Samurai Kirby, Crackity Hack, and Booming Blasters.
Nintendo already brought up these Kirby's Return to Dream Land Deluxe minigames before. It even shared a few screenshots of some of them.

Image via Bethesda Game Studios "Vanilla" Skyrim (pre-patch 1.9) only allows the player to climb to level 81. This means you can't get all of the perks in the tree. With the introduction of Legendary Skills, however, players now have the option to level up infinitely. To truly max out your character, you need to get your character to level 252 — achieving every perk in the game.

Signalis is a fantastic throwback horror game, making an excellent callback to retro classics like Resident Evil and Silent Hill. Even further drawing inspiration from classic horror games, Signalis has multiple endings and even a secret ending that is difficult to unlock. This article will discuss how you can unlock the secret ending in Signalis and what it might mean. How to unlock the secret ending in Signalis Image via Rose-Engine To unlock the secret ending, you must gather three keys and a code to unlock the safe box before the game's final boss. The steps might sound simple, but getting those keys is very specific, and you must invest a lot of time and effort. As for the code, you can easily miss this one if you're not paying attention to the radio during the prologue sequence.

Genshin Impact has a sizable collection of characters that fulfill different roles. Each character can contribute value to your team, with some characters dealing damage while others laying in the back providing support.

AMD launched its Zen 4 Ryzen 7000 Series on the new AM5 socket last fall to mixed reception. The performance impressed, but the initial thermal results and costly platform pricing did not lead to the sales the company may have hoped for. AMD had to drop prices, and even go as far as subsidizing free DDR5 at select retailers. The downturn in the market definitely played a factor in weak demand for AMD's Ryzen 7000 Series, but many gamers also held off for the X3D lineup reveal, pricing, and release dates. AMD revealed the Ryzen 7000 X3D lineup in January at CES, but pricing and the release dates remained a mystery until now. Pricing for the 7800X3D is $449, the 7900X3D is $599, and the 7950X3D is $699. Take a look at the original Ryzen 7000 Series lineup, and these are surprisingly in line with the launch prices of the Ryzen 7000 Series. AMD has effectively shifted the original lineup down to replace those price points with the V-Cache lineup. Although not cheap compared to Ryzen ...
