     Miasma Chronicles mixes XCOM with a fresh take on tactical RPGs

Upcoming tactical RPG game Miasma Chronicles has a lot of impressive influences. The dark, bleak aesthetic feels very XCOM. The turn-based combat is like classic Final Fantasy. Created by Bearded Ladies, of the 2018 RPG Mutant Year Zero, there's even a slight hint of Hitman, many of the developers having previously worked on IO's stealth series. But as we get confirmation of the Miasma Chronicles release date, there's an interesting mechanic, hidden in Bearded Ladies' latest, that may set it apart from the RPG and deckbuilding crowd.

     Counter-Strike 2 changes: map reworks, reactive smokes, and more

There are so many Counter-Strike 2 changes to think about, we completely understand if you've found it difficult to keep up. While Counter-Strike 2 may look a lot like its predecessor on the surface, the Source 2 engine opens up a whole new set of mechanics that weren't possible in CS:GO.

Since 2015, the Counter-Strike whisper network has been buzzing with Source 2 conspiracy theories. Over the course of eight years, even those not well-versed in technology have become acquainted with Source 2. Thanks to fan-made artwork, everyone had expected visual upgrades to Counter-Strike 2, but Valve has gone the extra mile with the free PC game. Fortunately, the Counter-Strike 2 release date is right around the corner - the FPS game will be a free upgrade from Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, slated to start in the Summer of 2023.

With the best Minecraft shaders, you can instantly level up the look of your Minecraft world - even without a fancy schmancy RTX graphics card. But with so many downloadable mods for the sandbox game, if you're unsure, let's start with what Minecraft shaders are.

One of the best PC games of all time and the ongoing king of sandbox games, Minecraft has incredible replayability, keeping fans and newbies coming to the game time after time. While the vanilla game gets regular updates, with the Minecraft 1.20 release date coming soon, Minecraft mods, texture packs, resource packs, and shaders can completely reinvent the game, affecting its overall look. For example, mods can completely alter gameplay, and Minecraft texture packs and resource packs change the appearance of existing blocks and add new blocks, respectively. Meanwhile, shader packs give you the same game with fancier graphics and effects.

Long before Final Fantasy 14 swept over the MMO landscape, there was 2002's Final Fantasy 11 Online. I wasn't really away that Final Fantasy 11 was still running, but the MMO has been chugging along quietly for a few years - its last expansion having arrived in 2013. After 20 years of support, however, Square Enix is putting Final Fantasy 11 in maintenance mode, meaning servers will stay up and it'll remain playable, but with limited support.

Something terrible lurks beneath the waves in Dredge. Actually, scratch that. There are a lot of terrible things that call the oceans of The Marrows home in this melancholy fishing adventure, but what they are, I couldn't possibly tell you. In all my hours sailing these cursed waters, I've only ever seen brief flashes of them - their ungodly, slippery masses, long spiny fins, and a dozen different combinations of glowing eyes, teeth and tentacles. They're forever fading in and out of view, cloaked by the thick fog that blankets the sea every evening. Sometimes your ship lights will catch them for a split second before they slip away, or maybe you'll only hear them hurtling toward you, with a scream of a jet engine and a maw that's white hot, ready for gnashing your flimsy wooden carcass into sawdust.

It's unnerving, being out at sea after dark, but that's the time when the rarest and most vile catches raise their scaly heads. So the question becomes: are you willing to risk your own sanity for the sake of a quick buck? Or are you too afraid of what you'll find in Davy Jones' locker? In Dredge, the answer is always yes. Yes, you will be frightened of what's out there, whether it's real or born from your own fearful imaginings, but you'll sputter out into the darkness regardless, because the allure of this supernatural fishing sim is just too good to resist.

Since the game is still in development, these clips might not be what the final product will look like. For a brief moment, we can also see a screen that looks like it's for character enhancement, as well as a central hub.

We also now know the prices for the game and its various special editions. The normal version will cost 8,580 JPY ($65.50), and the Digital Deluxe Version will cost 12,100 JPY ($92.35).

Gundam Witch From Mercury Character Designs

In an interview with the official site, Character Designer Mogumo shared their thoughts on the design process for Witch from Mercury characters and their introduction to the Gundam franchise. Mogumo previously created designs for Cygames' upcoming Project GAMM and is part of design group Morion Airlines with writer and planner HISADAKE.

Mogumo begin the interview discussing how they initially considered Gundam as "something on a higher threshold" until they found themselves working on a different Gundam project. As part of their research, they say they watched Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron Blooded Orphans and has since watched others as well. As part of their impressions of the franchise, they draw attention to the Gundam: The Witch from Mercury characters and their interactions:

Since it's a show about war, where weapons play a part, I knew it would be heavy, but it's more than that. The relationships and bonds between the characters are always portrayed with warmth and that's part of the attraction.

Mogumo also explained that they became involved in the project whilst visiting Sunrise representatives, who invited their unit to take part in the design competition. While initially excited, Mogumo stated that they began to feel some anxiety as the scale of the project dawned on them.

On the design process behind the Gundam: The Witch from Mercury characters, they cited their background as a newcomer to the series as an influence. Simple designs and colors were used to keep it accessible to viewers who might not be as familiar with mecha anime. Design work for it took also place at the same time as the screenplay was being written, so Mogumo was able to consult frequently with Series Director Hiroshi Kobayashi and adjust designs according to feedback.

On being asked whether they knew about the surprising tone shift of the season finale, they had this to say:

At the time I created Suletta's character design, I didn't know what would happen in episode 12. Maybe Mr. Kobayashi or Mr. Ohkouchi had it in mind, but I never imagined anything like that. Still, what I focused on for Suletta was the fact that while she is an awkward girl from the countryside, she also needed a heroic side that would be fitting for a Gundam protagonist. For example, her thick mismatched eyebrows suggest that she doesn't pay much attention to her appearance, but they also reflect a strong will.

Mobile Suit Gundam: The Witch from Mercury Season 2 will begin airing on April 2, 2023 on will be simulcast on Crunchyroll. If you want to catch up on the first season, you can read our guide here.

fire emblem engage fell xenologue

Nintendo released some details on what the Fell Xenologue DLC will be like in Fire Emblem Engage. There will be several restrictions on your army and play style, which make maps more challenging. As a reminder, you'll be able to use Lady Nel and Nil in this DLC. However, if they (and Alear) die, then it'll be an instant game over.

For starters, your units will always return at the end of the a Fell Xenologue chapter even if they die. It doesn't matter if you're playing on Casual or Classic. There is a restriction on your units, though. Fell Xenologue units will have a set level and class, as well as a starting inventory. This essentially means that you are unable to use your own characters, which might force you to have to use new strategies.

Lady Nel and Nil will be guest units every single map. Nintendo previously posted information on how you can use them in combat. Lady Nel uses lances and Dragonstones, with the latter weapon allowing her to transform into a Fell Dragon. This makes her a formidable attacker. Nil, on the other hand, is more of a support character. Like Nel, he is a Fell Dragon, but he is unable to transform.

Fire Emblem Engage is available on the Nintendo Switch. The Fell Xenologue DLC for Fire Emblem Engage will come out as Wave 4 of the DLC Expansion Pass on April 5, 2023.

Then a European release will follow on June 2, 2023. In Australia and New Zealand, people will see it on June 9, 2023. To go along with that reveal is also a new The Caligula Effect: Overdose character trailer.

While this The Caligula Effect: Overdose character trailer is new, it should look familiar. That's because, due to this being a port, all of the people are ones who appeared in the game when it showed up in 2018 in Japan and 2019 worldwide. It focuses on members of the Go-Home Club after taking a quick peek at the player's avatar.
This means we could eventually see NIS America also release an additional trailer focusing on the Ostinato Musicians characters found in that route.

The Caligula Effect: Overdose PS5 version release date is May 30, 2023 in North America, June 2, 2023 in Europe, and June 9, 2023 in Australia. It is immediately available on the Nintendo Switch, PS4, and PC.

Ahead of the release of the Resident Evil 4 remake, Capcom shared the first episode of a Resident Evil Masterpiece Theater promotional anime. Now that the game is about to release, there are two more episodes to watch. These once again follow Leon S. Kennedy and Ashley Graham in the Mysterious Village.

First, here's the second episode of the show. In the first one, we saw Leon looking for Ashley. That didn't go so well for him. The second sees him finding her. Now that he has, It focuses on what happens after Ashley "promises" to stay with Leon.

In the third Resident Evil Masterpiece Theater anime episode, Leon and Ashley turn to a visitor for help. They ask if he can build them a vehicle to get out of town. The gentleman then grabs a chainsaw. Those who played the original game or the chainsaw demo will know where this is going.

All three of the episodes so far continue a running gag. It is unknown how many more installments there could be in this series of promotional videos.

Lush Announces Super Mario Bros Movie Bath Bomb, Body Wash, and Soap

While toys already started appearing for the Super Mario Bros Movie, Lush cosmetics announced it will also sell items like a bath bomb, body wash, soap, and body spray. The company opened up its official landing page for the products ahead of their March 24, 2023 debut. However, people who use the Lush app can already begin getting the various items. As of 9:30am ET on March 23, 2023, it seemed the products were already sold out in the app. [Thanks, Vooks!]

All of the initial Super Mario Bros Movie Lush items tend to be items to help people clean up like soap. Some of the items were already announced. For example, there will be shower gels based on both Mario and Luigi. Bars of soap shaped like a Gold Coin will appear. Lush also offers a line of shower jellies, and there will be ones inspired by Bowser and Princess Peach. There is also a Super Mario question block bath bomb that will contain a random soap that looks like a power-up, like a Fire Flower, inside after dissolving in the bath. The most expensive item will be a body spray perfume inspired by Princess Peach.

This sort of collaboration isn't uncommon. For example, Nintendo and ColourPop had a line of Animal Crossing: New Horizons makeup.

The Lush Super Mario Bros Movie items will appear online and in-stores on March 24, 2023, and the film will appear in theaters on April 5, 2023.

We do know that the game's launch is imminent. Back in February 2023, the developer kicked off its pre-registration period.

Idol Showdown Hololive Fighting Game Releases in Spring 2023

Besto Games revealed a release window and new details about Idol Showdown, its fighting game starring Hololive Vtubers. The title will debut in Spring 2023. It will be a free game available through Steam, according to the new trailer. It will also be entirely free and feature eight playable characters.

At the moment, only part of the Idol Showdown Hololive fighting game's cast of playable Vtubers is available. The trailer shows off Inugami Korone, Nakiri Ayame, Shirakami Fubuki, and Tokino Sora. A-chan does make a cameo, however, as she appears for one of Sora's attacks. The other four are still a mystery, and there are no details as to their identities yet.

Here's the first trailer.

The Twitter announcements also revealed more details about its development. Besto worked on the title for over two years now. It will also use rollback netcode.

It isn't uncommon for fans to make free games inspired by Hololive Vtubers. For example, one of the more notable titles is Holocure. It is a Vampire Survivors-like that involves various performers. It also gets regularly updates. For example, in February 2023 that game was updated to add more first and second generation characters from the Japanese branch of the company.

Idol Showdown will appear on PCs in Spring 2023.

Like a Dragon Ishin interview

Like a Dragon: Ishin is one of several spin-offs in the Yakuza (or Like a Dragon) series. However, what makes this entry so unique is that it takes place in the 1800s and features prominent historical figures of that time period. We had the opportunity to sit down with the Like a Dragon: Ishin! localization team members Senior Localization Producer Marilyn Lee, Editor Jason Gallop, Editor Josh Malone, Translator Shun Fukuda, and Translator Tom Bayles to ask them how they managed to tackle this historical drama, and what advice they would give to aspiring editors and translators.

Kazuma Hashimoto, Siliconera: What were some challenges when localizing Like a Dragon: Ishin, given it takes place in the 1800's were there any colloquialisms or language unique to that time period that you wanted to make sure came across clearly in the text?

Marilyn Lee: One of the highest priorities of the localization team was to ensure we keep the characterization and tone of the Yakuza series characters but also bring in elements of Edo period Japan into their dialogue. The dialects for Kyo and Tosa were a certainly a challenge. Multiple meetings were had before the team finally decided on the direction to take. Another topic that often came up during the process was what term to localize and what to keep in romanization form as we wanted to keep as much flavor of that time period as we could.

Like a Dragon: Ishin has an incredible amount of external information available in an in-game glossary players can pull up during conversations with characters. Was translating this information particularly hard on the team, given the sheer volume of dialogue and text in Yakuza/Like a Dragon Games?

Lee: The glossary, memoirs, and new substories were joint efforts between Japan and the localization teams and went through extensive review and revisions. Fortunately, we have multiple members on the team that are familiar with Japanese history and culture that helped greatly in the localization of this content to make sure they would be helpful and interesting to read for the audiences.

Like a Dragon Ishin interview

What was one of the most interesting sub-stories the team localized?

Jason Gallop: Due to the nature of Ishin, many of the substories rely on period-specific cul-de-sacs which are edifying to research but challenging to explain concisely. The writers at RGG Studio love using side quests to explore and parody specific Japanese trends, and it's clear to see the fun they had applying that same technique to Japanese history.

The string of "Ee Ja Nai Ka" substories are a great example. People will almost always stumble onto it early and we only have a couple of sentences to convey and contextualize the historical phenomenon on display. It bears all the hallmarks of the best RGG substories — it's topical, earnest, and very funny. If the localization is successful, it should invite the player in on the initial joke and keep them emotionally aligned with Ryoma as he grows from wariness to acceptance over the course of the storyline. Then, by the time the English-speaking player sees the racing chicken named "Egg Ja Nai Ka," hopefully, they'll laugh with the same cathartic recognition a Japanese player would.

Were there any jokes that were hard to translate due to the language itself, or due to the time period in which Like a Dragon: Ishin takes place?

Tom Bayles: Jokes often resist easy direct translation, and more so as they get briefer and punnier. One highlight of the team's effort was, you guessed it, brief puns. To see them, you're going to have to head down to the chicken races and have a look at the contestants' names.

In Japanese, the chicken names are a mixture of puns that translate well with little to no qualification, references that require context or explanation, and a few charming euphonic nicknames. The "easy" ones naturally wind up closer to the Japanese; for any that require further explanation, the conversation becomes how best to nod to the original while maintaining the game's tone and sensibility. (And stay within character limits!) Humor being a key part of RGG's sensibility, there's a decent amount of leeway here, as the ultimate goal is to create an experience for the player that is genuinely funny in English. Each of these plucky monikers is therefore a little balancing act between the semantics of the Japanese, the funniest chicken-relevant thing you can think of that builds off it, and how you might leverage the game's tone, setting, or unique patois to heap on extra delight wherever possible. This is how something like "Moto-hiyoko," literally "once a chick," becomes "Hell Unshelled," or "Kachin-kōchin" slides right into "Ka-ching Cochin."

Worth mentioning that for all that to be successful, it involves not just thoughtful translation and editing, but a robust, ongoing conversation among the loc team. Clarity is crucial in understanding when to take the cue to be funny, and how exactly to do it. A conversation like this also helps everyone hit on "aha" moments together — if a room of dedicated, conscientious professionals is feeling your chicken pun, that's probably a good sign!

Like a Dragon Ishin interview

As a new translation team coming to the Like a Dragon series, were there any difficulties retaining key character voices, or was there some kind of compendium the team could reference in relation to how characters speak? What did we do to make sure the tone is correct?

Josh Malone: We did start out with a basic guide compiled from previous iterations of the series, but it was the daily conversation amongst the team that kept us all informed and on the same page about the major and minor details. Thankfully, most of our team either played through or worked directly on earlier Yakuza games, so the voices weren't a hassle to rein in. Equally helpful, in fact instrumental, was the scene-by-scene availability of the previous version of Ishin — visual and audio reference work wonders for what a localization team can achieve.

As for tone, we understood Ishin as an adaptation of Bakumatsu-era history made to fit the Like a Dragon mold. It's part murder mystery, part national conspiracy, and part sake-drinking, karaoke-singing, swords-out-guns-blazing madness. In other words, it's what you'd expect from a Yakuza title, but with 19th century Kyoto in all its beauty and turbulence taking center stage. With that in mind, we endeavored to preserve the characters as they appeared in previous installments, in hopes of creating the feeling that "the cast from Yakuza" was acting out the roles of stylized historical figures. That way, those of us who are new to the complexities and jargon of the time period would have something familiar to latch onto — plus, this was largely the approach the original Japanese script took as well.

Gallop: There's always something to be said for how far love and knowledge of a property can take you. I'd spent hundreds upon hundreds of hours with these characters long before getting the chance to work on them myself. Coming into Ishin with a profound respect for the conventions already established by the localization team, as well as a personal sense of how both the main cast and the word itself speak, it was relatively easy to jump right in.

Trusting in the knowledge of the senior translators and editors is also vital. Early in the project, the lead editors would often flag my Ryoma as sounding out-of-character for Kiryu — either I'd written him too esoterically in off-the-cuff speech or allowed his voice to be warped by the comedy of a substory. Embrace feedback and keep all of it handily shelved somewhere in mind going forward.

Like a Dragon Ishin interview

For those looking to enter the field of translation and localization, is there any advice you'd give to new, budding translators?

Shun Fukuda: For aspiring translators, the first thing to try is to put yourself in scenarios where you'll start utilizing the source language. Immerse yourself and get an idea on some of the nuances from native, everyday use of the languages you hope to translate. Sometimes it can turn into a bit of trial-by-fire, but this is some of the best ways to learn and hone your skills. The other piece of advice is to have passion. If you aren't consuming the media that involves the languages, do so! And if you already are, keep it going. Keep watching, playing, and reading. Make sure you're enjoying that media and want to transfer that love to another language. You want your work to be a labor of love. That's why it's important to have passion.

Malone: For editors, another important role in our localization process, know your craft: a working knowledge of the source language and strong creative writing skills are a localizer's fundamentals. Understand tone, intent, and conversational flow. Develop an eye for when things are weird — that's when it's time for translators and editors to talk. Know your product: if you're working on a series, scour every corner of the previous work, learn to emulate its style, and find ways to bring your own talent to the table. If you're working on something new, create a style guide and hash out the creative vision, ideally with a team, so that each decision works in concert to realize it. Lastly, know yourself: your ability to produce language is directly correlated to your experiences in life and what you can imagine in detail. Listen to how people talk in a variety of mediums, as well as in your personal interactions. You'll be surprised how much magic is pulled from what you thought was buried away in your head.

Like a Dragon: Ishin! is available for PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, PC Xbox One, and Xbox Series X.

     20230225232016 1Plantera was one of my favorite idle games. At least, for the brief amount of time it lasted. Planting trees, crops, and having the place run wild with animals was plenty of fun but there was no endgame to speak of. Plantera 2: Golden Acorn attempts to rectify this with some solid additions. But the experience still won't even come close to being able to keep you as busy as any similar games. If you played the first game, you've mostly played this one. You're dropped on a patch of land and start out by planting a few things. Crops and trees have fruit and vegetables you can click, which will give you coins you can use to expand your space and buy more things. There are more crops, animals, and decorations in Plantera 2: Golden Acorn and it's really something to scroll past and see the enormous amount of sprites that are active simultaneously. The progression here is exactly the same as the original. You keep growing and making more money until you've exp...
