In doing so, this mod might just bring a whole fresh-game feel to The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.

Specializations in Diablo IV allow for players to obtain additional passives for their class of choice. These passives can potentially change the way players approach combat, with some of these abilities adding Combo Points to Core Skills. Or even go so far as to provide unlimited energy for brief periods of time when certain conditions are met. These are something players will want to immediately unlock when given the chance.

Players can unlock Specializations in Diablo IV starting at level 15. Upon reaching level 15, access the character screen and navigate to the newly appeared Specializations menu. Select the first Specialization to track the corresponding quest on your quest tracker located on the right-hand side of the screen. After completing this quest, you will receive Specializations upon reaching specific levels.

This includes:

  • First Specialization - Level 15
  • Second Specialization - Level 20
  • Third Specialization - Level 30

How to Unlock Specializations Diablo IV

Each Specialization will be different according to class. Additionally, each quest is unique as well and provides a little bit of backstory to each of the individual classes. However, once you unlock your Specializations, keep in mind that you can only have one active at any given time. That said, you can switch between any of the three freely. Which means you don't have to stick with a Specialization you may or may not enjoy using.

Diablo IV will launch on June 6, 2023 for the PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and PC, and its Early Access beta weekend will be held March 17-20, 2023. The open beta will run March 24-27, 2023.

The Windblume's Breath event, or the Windblume Festival, is back in town in Genshin Impact. Like most Mondstadt events, it is a very feel-good time all around. This is obviously a great thing, especially after the most recent Archon Quest. This Windblume Festival is special too, since is focuses mostly on Sumeru characters rather than Mondstadt ones. Not only does it conclude Collei's personal story in a satisfying manner, but it also introduces new additions to the greater lore of Genshin Impact.

The Windblume's Breath event in Genshin Impact centers around Collei. The Traveler and the others watch as she struggles to become her ideal self. Her anxieties around her social skills and what kind of person she is felt really relatable. It's sweet of Sucrose, who suffers from very similar issues, to be the one to reach out to Collei. However, I found it unfortunate that despite Collei's history with Amber, they didn't really interact with each other. Even so, Collei's development as she comes into her own person was very nice to watch. Rather than continuing to emulate Amber, she grows into a better version of herself, committing herself to helping others the way that Tighnari, Cyno, and the people of Mondstadt have helped her. This is a great event for Collei fans! I'm sure that there are some people who became fans of her because of this event, too.

windblume's breath genshin impact collei

Collei was awesome, but what was important to me personally was getting to know Cyno. This event is our first time really seeing Cyno in his natural habitat and it does not disappoint. Give this man his own show on the Comedy Channel. His jokes are terrible, of course, but everyone's reactions to them and Cyno remaining blissfully oblivious to their exasperation was what made them work. He doesn't even seem to realize how cringy he is. It makes the whole thing feel like it's an episode of The Office. The various localization teams did an amazing job coming up with (terrible) puns to get close to what the original Chinese jokes were.

genshin impact windblume's breath cyno

Of course, these sorts of major Genshin Impact events usually have their fair share of mini-games. The Windblume Festival was no different. None of the mini-games were ones that made me want to play them after I finished getting the rewards, unfortunately. My least favorite was Floral Chess. But I think that's because it's just Pac-Man and I'm not really a fan of that. I hear it's difficult on consoles, but the rhythm game on PC felt really great! HoYoVerse's beat maps are really one-note (ha!) so I recommend looking through ones that the community shared if you want to play an actual rhythm game.

windblume's breath floral chess genshin impact

What I enjoyed the most from this year's Windblume Festival was seeing the scene of just Collei and Sucrose talking. It's always great to see characters interacting with each other organically without the Traveler acting a buffer. If you've read my preview for Honkai Star Rail, then you might know that I personally dislike voiceless player avatar characters. While the Traveler has become endearing over time, much like how a kidnapper might become sympathetic as an effect of Stockholm Syndrome, it's still unfortunate that we seldom see character interactions without them being physically there. Collei and Sucrose's conversation was so sweet without Paimon or the Traveler's interjections. We'll finally be able to see different sides to each character if this trend continues. Some characters definitely put up a facade around the Traveler versus when they're with their closer friends.

The Windblume Festival this year started on a strong note and then ended on a bit of a whimper. It introduced us to the existence of the Hexenzirkel, which is an organization of powerful witches. They will likely appear in the story proper some time in the future. Perhaps some members will even be playable. But the ending cinematic being a lore drop rather than the usual "Where's everyone now?" was a tad disappointing. It wasn't even so major of a reveal that it deserved to usurp the spotlight from the actual festival. These region-specific festival events always feel so character-focused that I wish it ended with people we know and love rather than faceless entities.

Genshin Impact is readily available on the PS4, PS5, Windows PC, and mobile devices.

Like in Diablo III, players can elect to re-roll item passives in Diablo IV. This is done by speaking to the Occultist in Kyovashad or any city that features this kind of NPC. The Occultist in Diablo IV has a plethora of uses, which includes both Extracting and Imprinting Aspects onto gear, but it can also allow you to re-roll item passives. The specific tab you need to navigate to in order to obtain new passives is the "Enchant Item" option.

You can find the location of the Occultist in Kyovashad, the first major city in Diablo IV, below.

Diablo IV Re-Roll Passives

Simply place the item you wish to change a passive on into the appropriate slot and you can re-roll the selected slot at random. This will, however, bind the item to your account. That means you will not be able to trade it to other players. Also, you can only choose to re-roll a single passive on an item. This means that you cannot change all of the passive stats on an item and instead can only pick one. This passive can be re-rolled an infinite amount of times, but will cost significantly more gold every time you choose to enchant.

Diablo IV Re-Roll Passives Enchant Items

The first re-roll will cost a little above 1,000 gold and specific materials depending on the rarity of the item. For example, Rare items will only require gold and a Veiled Crystal, which can be obtained through side quests, or by salvaging gear. However, re-rolling passives on Legendary gear in Diablo IV will cost gold, a Veiled Crystal, and Fiend Roses. Fiend Roses are exceptionally rare, so it's advised that you take this into consideration before re-rolling any passive through Enchanting the item.

Diablo IV will launch on June 6, 2023 for the PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and PC, and its Early Access beta weekend will be held March 17-20, 2023. The open beta will run March 24-27, 2023.

Cover Teases Hololive Blue Journey Music Project and 'Summer is Coming'

On day two of Hololive Super Expo 2023, Cover announced it is preparing a Blue Journey music project and shared a teaser video noting "summer is coming" with the #HololiveSummer2023 hashtag. The former has its own YouTube channel and will debut in April 2023. The latter only has a summer 2023 release window and brief animation.

With the Hololive Blue Journey music project, there's already a teaser video. It suggests there will be some darker, more melancholy songs from Vtubers on the way. It also shows off the logo for this offshoot will look and teases some of the songs we might hear. For example, at the very end are the phrases, "I'm alone," "I wanted to be you," and "to our past selves."

The Hololive "summer is coming" teaser for a 2023 project is a bit more vague. However, the video does offer a hint aside from it being something associated with the season. There are three Vtubers shown. All of them belong to different branches of the company. First we see Tokino Sora, who is from the Japanese branch and is the company's first ever Vtuber. After that, the camera pans out to show Moona Hoshinova, from Hololive ID, is sitting next to her. The segment comes to a close with the Hololive EN member Gawr Gura showing up. This means that it will involve every Hololive branch.

As a reminder, there were three announcements on March 18, 2023, the first day of the convention. That involved the first Hololive EN concert in July 2023, a teaser for a HololiveCity project, and a note that the Hololive 5th Generation Twinkle 4 You Live will be held in HololiveCity in July 2023.

Hololive Hologra Episode 200 Stars Gawr Gura

On the first day of Hololive Super Expo 2023, Cover teased that the 200th episode of the Holo no Graffiti anime, also known as Hologra, would star Gawr Gura. Now the episode is live. It also stars Shiranui Flare and Yozora Mel. Hakui Koyori and Nekomata Okayu make cameo appearances as well.

The episode appears with Gura finally getting to the Hololive office. However, before she does, she spears a piece of pink poop. Flare instructs her to clean her spear up. While being lectured by the member of Hololive Fantasy, her instincts take over.

Here's the full Hololive Hologra 200th episode "Gawr Gura Gnawing." Official English subtitles are available if you turn closed captions on.

The end of the episode teases the next member of Hololive EN Myth to debut on the show. 201 will star Amelia Watson. That means all five genmates will have appeared on it since getting their 3D models. Ninomae Ina'nis was first to appear. After that, Kiara Takanashi showed up in an episode. The Calliope Mori one showed up after that.

Cover didn't announce an air date for the Amelia Watson episode of Hologra just yet. An official playlist allows people to go back through past episodes on YouTube.

Our Favorite and Best Genshin Impact Events

There have been a lot of events in Genshin Impact now that it's over two years old, so we figured it's a good time to discuss the ones we liked best. Especially now that we've already seen the 2023 Lantern Rite and Windblume Festival appear in the game.

I'm going to have to say the Genshin Impact Unreconciled Stars event is the best one in some ways. This is primarily because of how much additional context we ended up getting about the world. It introduced Scaramouche, showing us a character who'd be relevant to the story in many different ways. We also got hints about the nature of Teyvat. Not to mention it's great to see Mona get more screen-time, as you'd think an astrologer would help provide interesting insights into the nature of the world.

However, I am also a very big fan of both Golden Apple Archipelago events. The 1.6 and 2.8 ones both offered a lot to do, good rewards, and a great space to explore. -- Jenni

Our Favorite and Best Genshin Impact Events a

My personal favorite event in Genshin Impact is the Irodori Festival, mainly because I always love events that parody Comiket and the convention scene. It's also a good, light-hearted diversion, which also happens to be the canonical first meeting for several of my favorite Liyue and Inazuma characters. Also, the Irodori Festival and the events around it hosts my favorite side quest, "Buyer's Guide to Statue of Her Excellency, the Almighty Narukami Ogosho, God of Thunder." It's a shame that hoYoVerse doesn't seem to believe in event reruns yet, as newer players will have missed out on this goodness. -- Josh

My favourite Genshin Impact flagship event was also the Irodori Festival for different reasons than Josh. (Okay, I'm just a Kazuha and Xingqiu simp.) So my second favourite is the second Lantern Rite Festival. I'm a sucker for the Lantern Rite in general because I really like how bright Liyue is during that time, and I particularly enjoyed the second one because that was Shenhe's debut event. Her story was the perfect mix of heartwarming and funny that I felt was a great improvement from writing fumbles in the main story at the time. -- Stephanie

The Overwatch 2 x One Punch Man characters wearing their skins.

There's nothing that says thriving competitive game quite like a branded skin collaboration, and the Overwatch 2 x One Punch Man crossover is the first such collaboration in Overwatch's history.  Until April 6, 2023, fans of One Punch Man can experience the wonder that is Saitama Doomfist, Genos Genji, Terrible Tornado Kiriko, and Mumen Rider Soldier 76 through the magic of skins. In addition to the character skins, several other crossover cosmetics including weapon charms, emotes and voice lines are also available, with some being pay-to-unlock while others can be acquired by playing the game. Read on to learn how to unlock each skin and collectible!

Shop Exclusives - Saitama Doomfist, Genos Genji, Terrible Tornado Kiriko

The three headliner skins in this collaboration are shop exclusives, meaning that players have to pay for them using Overwatch 2's premium currency. Each skin can be purchased as part of a skin and items set, or as part of the all-in bundle. If you're interested in getting all the skins then the all-in-bundle is technically the most valuable, but if you only care about one or two of them then you're better off getting them separately.

The Overwatch 2 store page featuring One Punch Man cosmetics.

Here is the full pricing breakdown:

  • Saitama item combo: 2,500 Coins
  • Genos item combo: 1,900 Coins
  • Terrible Tornado combo: 2,100 Coins
  • One Punch Man all-in bundle: 4,400 Coins

The all-in bundle comes with 10 total cosmetics, broken up into three skins, one emote, one victory pose, one voice line, one highlight intro, and three name cards. It's worth noting that the item pack combos aren't created equally, with the Saitama Doomfist combo featuring five cosmetics, the Terrible Tornado Kiriko combo featuring three, and the Genos Genji combo featuring two. It's also worth noting that 2,200 coins currently costs $19.99 to purchase, which makes the cost of the all in-bundle around $40.

Event Challenge Rewards - Mumen Rider Soldier 76, Other Cosmetics

But what about the free-to-play Overwatch 2 users? Thankfully, those players are not completely left out of the Overwatch 2 x One Punch Man fun. Gamers can earn the Mumen Rider Soldier 76 without spending any currency, as long as they play 24 games. While 24 games may seem like a lot, each win counts for two games so players can technically unlock the skin within the span of 12 matches. In addition, there are five other cosmetics that can be earned by playing in four, six, twelve, sixteen and twenty games, respectively.

  • 4 games played – Saitama's Fist Weapon Charm
  • 8 games played – Mumen Rider Name Card
  • 12 games played – Cyclist of Justice Victory Pose for Soldier: 76
  • 16 games played – Justice Crash Highlight Intro for Soldier: 76
  • 20 games played – Boros Weapon Charm
  • 24 games played – Legendary Mumen Rider-Soldier: 76 skin

The Overwatch 2 x One Punch Man challenges menu.

The Overwatch 2 x One Punch Man crossover event runs until April 6, 2023 and there has been no indication as to whether or not these skins will be made available past that. That being said, if other live service games like Fortnite are any indication then we will probably see these skins pop-up again at some point in the coming months and years.

What Does Beating Jeanne's Tale in Bayonetta Origins Jeanne Unlock

After beating Bayonetta Origins for the first time, Jeanne's Tale unlocks. However, there's still more to earn. Finishing this side story means another bonus. In addition to another possible side of a story, you get some new looks for the main game.

Beating Jeanne's Tale in Bayonetta Origins/em> doesn't take too long. Compared to the main game, it's more of an overview and taste. Someone could easily get through it in about an hour.

Once done, people earn three Bayonetta Origins costumes. Two are for Cereza, while one is for Cheshire. The Cheshire one is "Charles." It can only be used with the "Jeanne" outfit, which becomes available for Cereza after completing the side story. People also earn a Bayonetta 3-inspired Arch-Eve Origin costume for Cereza. All three can be used in the main game by heading to a save lantern and selecting one from the Costumes menu.

As a reminder, if you haven't unlocked this element of the game yet, you do need to complete Bayonetta Origins first. Once you have, you can find this side story in the main menu. It'll be in the "Extras" section.

Bayonetta Origins: Cereza and the Lost Demon is available for the Nintendo Switch. A demo is available.

     Exoprimal Open Beta Impressions 1I covered Exoprimal's closed network test back in July of last year, so when the open beta kicked off, it was time to see what exactly would be different. Despite eight months having passed, the game looks and feels the same, but there are a handful of things that were new to me. Unfortunately, there's still only one of the game's modes available, so we'll have to wait until it releases this July to see just how it shapes up. For now, though, I certainly have a better idea what to expect in various ways. All ten of Exoprimal's exosuits are now freely selectable, including one that uses a grenade launcher and another that uses pistols that can be swapped between damage and healing modes. The exosuits themselves can be likened to characters from a hero shooter, all with their own skills and specific focuses, which include damage, tanks, and support units. The only mode the open beta provides is the same as the network test – a five vs five PvEvP even...

In Garden Galaxy, you arrange randomly delivered pots, plants, furniture and ornaments into your own happy little scene. I spent a contented evening with it a few weeks ago, fussing over the shape of my water feature and the angle of my gnome.

If you like tinkering and tidying, I think you'd like it too, and this week it has received a major new update with lots more items to play with.

I first played Storyteller around eleven years ago, which is also the first time RPS wrote about it. It was a story-building puzzle game in which players constructed three-panel comics by dragging and dropping characters and items such that they combined in delightful, dramatic ways.

It looks to still be that, more or less, now that it's coming out in greatly expanded and polished form next week. Watch the launch trailer below.

Add Sockets Diablo IV

Diablo IV will let players add sockets to gear in a way that is no longer randomized. Unlike Diablo III, where you would need to re-roll passives on items to potentially obtain sockets, players can instead just speak to a Jeweler to add to their gear. It will only cost a bit of gold and a Scattered Prism. This system is arguably much easier than how it appeared in Diablo III and will allow for players to create early game builds a bit easier.

However, keep in mind that Scattered Prisms are fairly rare drops and are mostly only dropped by World Bosses. They can be obtained through other methods, but this is arguably one of the most reliable ways. Additionally, players can only interact with Jewelers once they have reached level 20. But once you have reached level 20 you can then proceed to add sockets to your gear in Diablo IV. The first Jeweler is found in Kyovashad, and is found beside the Rings and Amulet merchant.

You can find the location of the Jeweler in Kyovashad below.

Add Sockets Diablo IV

Diablo IV will launch on June 6, 2023 for the PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and PC, and its Early Access beta weekend will be held March 17-20, 2023. The open beta will run March 24-27, 2023.

Diablo IV Extract Aspect

Extracting Aspects is an extremely valuable feature in Diablo IV. This allows for players to effectively obtain passive effects from Legendary items, to then reapply them to an item of their choice. In order to Extract Aspects in Diablo IV, players will need to speak to an Occultist and have a Legendary item that they would like to break down. The first Occultist can be found in Kyovashad, which is the first city you will access once you have beaten the Prologue.

What makes this feature so valuable is the ability to apply any Extracted Aspect to any item of their choice, as mentioned above. This means that the item does not need to be a Legendary in order for you to apply said aspect. In fact, applying an Aspect to a Legendary item will overwrite the one currently applied to it. So it is best to save your Legendary items for their Aspects to be extracted and then applied to other pieces of equipment.Diablo IV Extract Aspect

You can apply these aspects to Rare items to then make them Legendary items, for example. So don't be afraid to Extract Aspects through your local Occultist, as this gives players a more accessible way to create builds of their choosing. However, making a Rare item a Legendary item will not increase it's power. So ideally, finding a Rare item with a significantly higher power than your Legendary item, and then applying said Aspect is the best way to go.

Diablo IV will launch on June 6, 2023 for the PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and PC, and its Early Access beta weekend will be held March 17-20, 2023. The open beta will run March 24-27, 2023.

Change FPS Diablo IV

Like most modern games, Diablo IV will allow you change the framerate (FPS) the game runs at through it's settings menu. This includes both foreground and background FPS. So if you are noticing that when you tab out of the game, it runs at a significantly lower framerate, this guide will break down how to change both FPS settings in Diablo IV.

Access your options menu and go to the "Graphics" section. Under the "Performance" tab, you will find both the "Max Foreground" and "Max Background" FPS options. Here you can manually adjust what FPS the game is running out when you are tabbed in or tabbed out of the game. This is especially good for streamers to mess with if they will be playing the game in Windowed Mode.

Additionally, if Diablo IV is taxing your PC (especially while fighting World Bosses), you can manually assign a framerate ideal for your rig through this option. However, you cannot input a number and instead will need to play around with the sliders to set your preferred frame rate.

Change FPS Diablo IV

If you want audio to play in the background while you are tabbed out of the game head to the "Sounds" tab and under "Game Sound Output" check the "Play in Background" option. This will allow for audio from the game to play even if it is isn't the main window you currently have open.

Diablo IV will launch on June 6, 2023 for the PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and PC, and its Early Access beta weekend will be held March 17-20, 2023. The open beta will run March 24-27, 2023.

Outside of the standard campaign story, you may grab optional side quests offered by NPCs who have little blue exclamation marks above their heads.
